STATE PARLIAMENT. ALL-NIGHT SITTING. MELBOURNE, THURSDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 6 February 1914
STATE PARLIAMEINT. ALL-NIGHT SITTING. MELBOURNE, THURSDAY. Determined to close Parliamentary proceedings this week, the Watt Government kept the Legislative Assembly considering the estimates all through Wednesday night. Messrs Webber, Hannah, and Cotter, who were championing the asylum attendants, made futile attempts in the small hours of the morning to have the debate adjourned. About a quarter-past two, while Mr Cotter was speaking, Ministers had the galleries cleared, on a vote of 25 to 13. At 7.30 the acting chairman, Mr Soily, announced he would leave the chair until 9 o'clock, when re porters were again admitted. During the interval the bells were repeatedly rung for a quorum, but the net result of the late sitting was sixpence extra a day to the police, from 1st July last. On the Education estimates, Mr Elmslie moved the reduction of the vote by £1 in order to advocate the claims of female teachers to equal pay with male teachers. The motion was defeated. Mr J. W. Billson t...

COUNCIL VARIANCES. A STORMY DISCUSSION. MEETING BREAKS UP. Last evening the bi-monthly meet ing of the M ary or;,ough Borough Council broke up in disorder while a debate was proceeding and the motion that formed the subject of discussion was not voted on. This resolution was an order of the day by Cr.

For a long time this motion was debated, argument 3 wax ing warmer and warmer, until councillors became as hot as the weather, and the meeting broke up unceremoniously. In opening the debate, Cr. Gid dings said he was sure the matter di...
AMUSEMENTS. COLISEUM PICTURE GARDENS. TO-NIGHT'S FEATURES. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 6 February 1914
AMUSEMENTS. COLISEUM PICTURE GARDENS. TO-NIGHT'S FEATURES. The star picture for to-night at the Coliseum Picture Gardens is a thril ling.. war drama, entitled, "An orphan of war." The plot is based on one of those sensational feuds which take place between families in West Virginia, and is full of exciting passages. John Waldron, a giant mountaineer, of West Vir ginia, is in sympathy with the North in the civil war with the South, and is hated by his neighbors. His son, a bright little lad, has been brought up to have a deep regard for the cause to which his father is attached. The father is attacked by the neighbors, and a fierce struggle ensues. He finally escapes, and hides in the hills. The Southern army reaches the locality and a company of soldiers is sent with orders to take John Waldron-dead or alive. He offers a great resis tance, and puts up a fine defence, but is afterwards taken. He is tried and sentenced to be hung. The sen tence is just about to be executed, when the s...

CRICKET. WEDNESDAY ASSOCIATION. METHODISTS BEAT HIGH SCHOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 6 February 1914
CRICKET. WEDNESDAY ASSOCIATION. METHODISTS BEAT HIGH SCHOOL. The weather was unpleasantly hot on Wednesday, when the Metho dists met the High School boys on the concrete wicket in Prince's Park. This was the :first time these teams have met since the holidays, and it seemed that a long spell has not done the. boys any good. Their fielding was patchy, and their batting just about as bad as it could be, .Under ..the present conditions, and unless they receive better coaching, it is very doubtful if the school will ever turn out competent cricketers, On Wednesday Davey was out of Methodist team, and Baker and Douglas from the school eleven. Batting first, the Methodists began badly, Youlden being the only one to last till Powell came in. There two made a decent stand, Youlden hitting hard and Powell making a quiet 25, in which there were a couple of chances. Gould then kept an end up while Youlden hit at everything, and the innings was closed at six for 164. Youlden carried his bat for...

CASTLEMAINE MATCH. MARYBOROUGH BEATEN. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 9 February 1914
CASTLEMAINE MATCH. MARYBOROUGH BEATEN. There were various circumstances that prevented Maryborough taking a representative team to Castlemaine on Saturday, and the result was that when they met the strongest twelve that association could muster the visitors were badly beaten. But it was not so much the difference in the strength of the opposing teams that accounted for the disparity in the scores as the shocking catching of the Maryborough fellows, who unaccountably dropped chance after chance. As the wicket was sodden from a flooding received the previous night, Stevens (who captained Mary borough and won the toss) put the home team in. They put up the good score 'of 1565, Selenmeyer, a Bound bat, being top with 40. Stevens went from 5 for 25 to 6 for 64, and A. C. Chivers (Havelock) took 3 for 22. Disaster early befel the Mary borough twelve, which, by.the way, included players from all the teams, Morton being the sole Railways' representative. The Havelock cap tain, Harry Morgan,...

CRICKET. DISTRICT ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 9 February 1914
CRICKET. DISTRICT ASSOCIATION. (~oTES BY ORTHos.) The District Association. held a small meeting at the M'Ivor hotel on Friday evening. The president (-Mr H. B. Ewens) was in the chair, and the only delegates present were from the Railways and Maryborough clubs. Primarily the meeting was called to dispose of business arising from the transfer of T. Baker from Talbot to Railways. In connection with this the Talbot club wrote giving endorsement of the letter by their president, but stating that they did not wish to re-open the case. The letter referred to was recently written to the president of the asso ciation by the president of the Talbot club (Mr J. R. Deans), who stated that the Talbot men who had voted for Baker's transfer were not authorised to do so, and had un warrantably presumed in attending the meeting at all. When this letter of Mr Deans' came before the association the opinion was expressed that if it reflected the opinion of the Talbot club, Baker's permit had been ill...
