THE SENATE CANDIDATES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 3 April 1914
TELEPHONE, 10. FRIDAY, APRIL 3, 1914. THE SENATE CANDIDATES. The selection of six candidates who are to contest Victoria's Se nate seats in the Lioeral interest, should a douole dissolution be se cured is a matter of exceptional importance and interest. To say that the political feeling of the State is grossly misrepresented in the Senate, is to repeat a familiar truism. In 1910, and again in 1913 Senate votes were pretty equally divided between those who ran as avowed Liberal and as avowed La bor candidates respectively. Yet, when a party division is taken, only Senator M'Coll supports Minis ters, whilst five Victorian Labori ties swell the Opposition majority. Clearly that should be put right. If victory is to be secured at the polls, there must be a "tlcket" which' every Liberal will loyally support. .When a whole Stats forms an electorate, the ordinary elector )nust take most of his can didates on trust. And, as regards this pre-election, there is time neither for touring the St...

A COOL PROPOSAL. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 7 April 1914
A COOL PROPOSAL. The Interstate Commission has had a new pr'olosal put before it in the shape ot a bounty on the production of crude oil from shale in New South Wales. It appears that a company was formed a few years ago with a capital of about £1,250,000, and a manager, whose remuneration was £5,000 a yeal, and 5 per cent. on all money he spent for the company. He of course spent all it had, and about a quarter of a million besides. As one of the witnesses stated, they vent the pace, and pt course failed. There is now a proposal to write soff alot of the original capital, get in some more money, and have a try once more. The request made to the commission at first was that the public should give them two pence ler gallon on all the crude oil they produced from shale,, and they expected to produce 4,000,000 gallons per year. Thus they wis hed everyone in Australia to be compelled to contribute a sum of £33,000 per annum to be handed :over as a benefit fund. They ask for this arrange...
