EDITORIAL. NEW CHURCH BUILDING FOR NUMURKAH. [Newspaper Article] — Numurkah Leader — 26 June 1914

EDITORIAL. NEW CHURCH BUILDING ROR NUMURSAH. At the Sooial on Thursday Mr Davis touched upon a subject that has been prominently in my own mind for some considerable time—the question of a NEW CHURCH BUILDING in Nii murkah. It has been said that the pres ent Church will easily hold the present congregations, and will do us for many a long day. It is true the building is large enough for present requirements, but it will not be long before it will need to be thoroughly renovated. The foundations on the south side have sunk so far that the depression may be easily noticed by anyone going into the building, especially when it is empty. It is a fact that the right end of the seats on that side are built up to prevent them see-sawing. Notwithstanding this, there is no immed iate necessity for a new Church. But what we do want is a PARISH HALL, which we may use for our social functions, classes, and Sunday School work. We have been bewailing our need of such a room for many a year, and du...

ELECTRIC POWER. NUMURKAH INSTALLATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Numurkah Leader — 26 June 1914

ELECTRIC POWER. NUMURKAH INSTALLATIONS. From the inception almost of Nnmur hah's electric lighting and pnmping plant, irons, kettles, toasters, radiators, etc., have been in nse in various house holds, bat not until recently have motors for driving machinery been installed. The first installation made was by Messrs Raps and Thomson, who use a motor to drive the machinery at their motor garage and repair shop. The motor has given great satisfaction, and this faot probably weighed with Mr E. Ooxon next door, for he last week pat in a 7 h. p. motor, which will entirely supersede the steam engine in use for so many years. Mr Goxon had the motor put in on trial, but one day's run de cided him to keep it, and the only ques tion now is whether he will use one only or put in two or three so that ourrent might be saved when any particular set of machines is not being used. We asked Mr Jim Ooxon abont the oosts, and he replied—ll The motor costs 8s a day, and requires no attention ; the steam...

LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — Numurkah Leader — 26 June 1914

LOCALtAND general, When a case under the Fraudulent Debtors'Act was called at the court of petty sessions on Wednesday morning, Mr Deane, who appeared for the judg ment creditor, asked for an adjournment for four weeks, as there was a possibility of the debt being liquidated. Mr Knight immediately complained that this was but another instance of the court being used as a debt collecting agency,;' and Mr Deane smilingly admitted that there was somethlug in the contention. It often happened, however, as In this case, that there was no chance of proving that the judgment debtor had since the original order beeu in a position to pay 1 the amount, and therefore it were better if the debt " could be collected amicably.11 The P.M. granted the adjournment, but said that once a summons was issued the case should come to court. If a person had the means and refused to satisfy an order of the court, then no leniency should bo shown him. The court every where was being used to too great an exte...

Daring the recent aeries of farces in the Federal Douse the Cook Ministry was continually twitted with having done nothing to thwart the base designs of the American Meat Trust, and no doubt daring the coming political fight the statement will be repeated ad nau seum in an endeavor to convert Cook's majority in the House of Representatives into a minority. It would be as well, therefore, if liberal and Labor electors alike seriously considered the statement said to have been made by the Queens land Premier, who is reported tbns : — The Swift and Amor Co., the first firm to open a branch of the American Meat Trust, did not consult the State about starting. They submitted plans of their proposed buildings to the Federal Government, of which Mr Fisher was then head, and the Government was satisfied with the pl...
