ANOTHER STRIKK IMMINENT. Coming on top of the rabbiters' strike we hear grave rumours of an other strike among the old-age-pen sioners and others who occupy the few s"-afs in Cook Park, supplied by the Council. They aver that the seats ure too hard and are arranging a peti tion to the Council to have them pad ded. Tn the event of the said Coun cil ignoring the petition, the O.A.P's. have decided to adope drastic measures and order a strike. They say that the •seats are too few for their largo body of 'members, and they cannot lay down at full length, and smoke or chew to bacco, and then the "orty looks of the Iydies," as .they pass them by, is an other source of inconvenience. What do females want to sit down on the seats for anyhow; it spoil'; their dresses ; and then the energy that would be expended by the "Weary Willie" constantly -having to raise and make room for s'oino tired or, perhaps in valid lady, viotild tend to make him fro and look fr»r work, which would h" the last st...

RUMORED GOLD DISCOVERY. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 12 January 1912
RUMORED GOLD DISCOVERY. On seing the par re the above in a contemporary, our representative in terviewed Mr. C. E, Hayes, J.P., chair man of the local syndicate, the Ven tura Gold-mining Co., who stated that the matter had been greatly exagger ated. The company had certainly got a few nice small speciments, which were now in Millthorpe, and a small vein was showing gold so far, but it might be only patchy. He deprecated too much being said, as there was no thing whatever to cause a rush to Guyong. Mr. Bragg, secretary of the company, and Messrs. C. Dutton and M. G-uinan (shareholders) expressed similar opinions, the latter stating that he was on the spot all Tuesday af ternoon, and though two parallel shafts had been sunk they got noth ing in one, and only a trace of gold in the other. While hoping that the speculators will be successful we see no need to exaggerate the position of affairs, which might result in bring ing a lot of poor unfortunate people here and putting them to exp...
