UPPER MAFFRA. December 3. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 7 December 1882

UPPER MAFFRA. (r7oo aA con aoroD8xma.) . December 3. Your line of railway via Heyfiold and Tinamba, appears to have got clogged in coming before the sonators of the Upper Houe. This impediment all lovers of the rail will deplore, for it stops the pro. gross of dispatch, and hurls advancement back again into the shades of the first dawn of colonial life. Whether theplan of railway adopted by the Hon. Thomas Dent is the most proper, just, and equitablo route to be followed, posterity will alone have to decide. It is very apparent' that the proper course has not been followed, and instead of appealing to public opinion upon such a vital question, public feeling has boon slurred over and systematically "Burkod" to meet the views of interested parties, In these parts we therefore fool not'much interest in any thing that may happen to the Tinamba branch line. We cannot shut our ears to the squabble now raging" in regard to the choice of site for the alffra station. The Government have ver...

THE Maffra Spectator. THURSDAY MORNING, DEC. 14, 1882. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 14 December 1882

THE THURSDAY MORNING, DEC. 14,1882. IT is now a year and nine mouths since we first heralded Thl Maffra Spectator into the journalistic ranks of Victori. We commenced operations in a district already represented by the two leading newspapers of Gippsland, and where a local journal had never before been es tablished. Under such circumstances, it may readily be imagined that many were uncertain of the outcome of an adventure that, as well as being a hitherto untried one, had a considers ble opposition to contend with in its pecuniary struggle, and many difficul ties calculated and unforeseen to over come ere its success or failure could be determined; but though in launching this journal into existence we foresaw that many difficulties would be met with, we found, on the other hand, that every inducement was held out for the establishment of a local journal in this township. The district had no mode of expressing its views or making known its requirements except through the medium of ...

THE DAIRYING INDUSTRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 21 December 1882

.,,.T E DAIRYING INDUSTRY. It will readily be conceded that Victorian-made butter and cheese are entitled to a prominent place amongst colonial industries, and we venture to think it will as readily be conceded that Victoria will always command pre-eminence on the Australian conti isent, as a butter and cheese producing colony, her soil and climate being so peculiarly favourable to the develop nment of these important industries. Some people may entertain the notion that this colony ought to have done more in past years than she has done in the extension of the dairying in dustry; but in estimating her efforts in the past, it is necessary to bear in mind that she has had hardly thirty years of what may be termed settled existence, during which she has experienced the fiery throes of a gold fever. It will be seen from the subjoined table that within the comparatively short compass of twenty years the trade in butter and cheese has expanded to very large dimensions. We do not make thi...
