THE Maffra Spectator. THURSDAY MORNING, JAN. 18, 1883. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 18 January 1883

THIS THURSDAY MORNING, JAN.18, 1883. Tae Maffra Shire Council hare just held a meeting of great importance to every ratepayer. The position of the railway question has had their very earnest and serious consideration. The intrigues carried on by the Stratford faction are more dangerous than open hostility legitimately conducted. Their order of battle would be contemptible were not the probable' results disas trous. To deprive Maldra of the Sale connecootion, and to divert the Briago. long line from iafitra to Stratford, these are the mischievous results aimed at. The tactics of our opponents are not likely to succeed now they aret exposed; the danger lay in the stealthy. subtlety which masked their action; No preliminary warning in the shape of outspoken public opinion was given, but like the mole, every. movement was made out of sight and u'derground to ear-wig members of Parliament with plausible . misrepresentations, if not positive falsehood, has been the chief resource resorted...

BRIAGOLONG. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 18 January 1883

BRIAGOLONI G. (FROM A CORRRSPONDF.NT.) The solicitude of our neighbors of Stratford! towards us is amazing. Their Ministry has not only, granted us a tramway to their back-yard, but they have oven come to the. foreto redress our griovances. The mail having been altered from Stratford to Maffra by recommendation of the Inspector of Post Offices, and accepted, by the de partment, to accommodate the increas ing populations of Wa-de-lock,. Little Plain, and Valencia Creek, we find that the hours are totally unsuitable, and steps were at once taken by the redi dents to obtain the necessary altera tion.. Meanwhile our friends, from Stratford, thinking this a capital opportrinity to show us their patronage and their fitness to point out what is best, for us, decided to start a petition asking the residents of Briagolong to sign same, and the Avon Shire to sup port it: ih their 'corporate 'capacity. Some. call this . excessive courtesy "imnpertinent interference;" others re joice in this su...

TERRIBLE ACCIDENT TO THE GOULBURN MAIL COACH. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 18 January 1883

TERRIBLE ACCIDENT TO THE GOULBURN MAIL COACH. That horrid hill down which travellers have to pass on their way to Goulburn   in order to reach the ricketty old   bridge over Reedy Creek, has ever since   the time it was first laid out been a disgrace to the Roads Department, and it required no foresight to see that a serious accident would eventually cul minate. This occurred on Wednesday evening last to the mail coach on its way to Goulburn. The omnibus carrying fourteen passengers left the Commercial   Hotel on that day at its usual   hour, driven by Sam Payton, a careful, steady coachman. All proceeded well until attempting to descend this infernal hill, when the vehicle, which was   drawn by five horses, got too much sway on, and the driver endeavoured to apply the break sharp when the block gave way, and in making the sharp turn a short way down the hill, a capsize took place by which several of the &...
