Of those 5826 had voted, leaving 3524 who for various rea sons did not vote. He and the pre sident (Mrs. Hillier; had followed the count right through, and found that the Labor uiojoritv for both Senate and Hotise of Representa tives was just 4^ to 1. That, from a Labor point of view, was very encouraging, but they, would need to find out the reason why so many people failed to record their votes. It migh;. be that some were too tired to do so, but anyhow it was a fact that when they went to record their votes a large number of persons found that their names had been struck off the rolls without just cause. He had teceived ...

MYRRHEE. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 18 September 1914
MYRRHEE. Notwithstanding tbe generally dry season the crops and grsss on -the Upper Fifteea Mile and Bogg? . Creeks are in a forward condition, In several cases stock have been turned on to the fields to eat back surplus growth of crop. The rains, though light, have been regular and sufficient for present needs, but there is no reserve of moisture in the soil. The water in the two creeks has been very little above the stepping stones at any time during the winter, and all the springs are consequently low. The elections went off very quietly. The deeper shadow of the European war and its grave possi bilities seem to have silenced espression of feeltng regarding the more local event, and it only wants a few unknown air craft in the '•'Upper Blue" to put everjtone either cleaning rifles or bolting for tbe nearest wombat hole. The new Presbyterian church is about completed. A number of its supporters have been clearing the "ground of the timber, and the open ing is to be. marked by a co...
