AN EXTRAORDINARY PROCEEDING. TO THE EDITOR OF THE CHRONICLE. [Newspaper Article] — Yea Chronicle — 13 August 1891
AN EXTRAORDINARY PROCEEDING. TO THE zDoTOR OF THE CHRONICLLE Sea,-I got an extraordinary sheet to-day from some extraordinary man-whether from Yea or Seymour matters not. But there is an extraordinary leading article in which the "father of the Yea and Alexandra Shires," as J. D. W. delights to call himself, is held up as a model of all the virtues. Why, Sir, it is only one short year since the Editor of the Extraordinary said that the Yea Shire Councillors behaved more like a lot of hoodlums or larrikins than anything else. And who led the van on that occasion? Why, Sir, James Daniel Webster. He had a row with Purcell; he had a row with Condon; he had a row with Quinlan; and be has had rows with every Councillor at the table at one meeting or another since then. Now we are asked to fall down and worship him. Consistency, thy name is-well, not the Editor of the Extraordinary.-I am, &e., MUDDY.
A LAST WORD TO THE RATEPAYERS. [Newspaper Article] — Yea Chronicle — 13 August 1891
A LAST WORD TO T8U 1ATE PATZZ8, VoTr snaloTrr. Vote as your consciences dictate. Do not be led away by any silly claptrap or maudlin sentimentality. Vote for those who are best able and willing to serve you. Do not believe the silly yarns about the "Co. of the CnRsonICLs" Since the present Editor took the Cnao.sc in hand no man inside or outside of the Shire has been refused a hearing in its column:. This is a stern fact, which cannothbe refuted. Again we say vote as your consciences dictate, and do not allow yourselves to be humbugged in the discharge of one of the the most sacred functions which the citizens ofa free country are entrusted with.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. [We do not hold ourselves responsible for correspondents' opinions. Discussion on public topics invited, but personalities cannot be permitted.] "OPINIONS OF THE PRESS." TO THE EDITOR OF THE CHRONICLE. [Newspaper Article] — Yea Chronicle — 13 August 1891
ITTEZR8 TO TU8 EDH'L [We do not hold ourselves responsible for correspoudents' opinions. Discussion on public topics invited, but personalities cannot be permitted.] "OPINIONS OF THE PRESS." TO THE EDITOR OF THE CIIROICLE. Set,-Re a handbill that has been freely circulated during the last week among the ratepayers, headed "Opinions of the Press." 1, as a simple individual, am at a loss to understand how it can be the " Opinions of the Press," when it is merely a few para. graphs out of the Seymour 'J'elegraph, and all evidently-too evidently-written by the one hand, and printed at the office of the above-mentioned paper. It is rather a stretch of the imagination to call such a document " Opinions of the Press," but it is like many other high-sounding phrases, meaning very little. I may say that I have carefully read all of the paragraphs re ferred to, and with one exception (the shift ing of the salaughter-yans from his own doors) the whopl of Cr. Webster's good works have been done...

Ir the first chapter of " Looking .Back wards" we could auly, as it were, "skim the surface with a. swallow's wings." Twelve months oir more have now elapsed since we first focussed attention on the necessity for adopting bylaws for the con duct of the business of the Shire Council.

Why have they not been enforced ? Is it because they ale not required? Is it be cause memlbes prefer to fritter awr.y valuable time in tou quoge arguments of the "pot and kettle" order?
