Correspondence. WE do not necessary identity ourselves with opinions expressed by our correspondents. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 23 March 1915
Correspondence. WE do not necessary Identity ourselves witu opinions expressed by our correspondents. SrR,-Queanbeyan is proposed to be absorbed by the Commonwealth as a part of the Federal Capital Territory. The above startling news was made by Mr. Austin Chapman on Wednes day last. Surely this statement :ame like a bolt from the blue and it has knocked the bottom out of Quean beyan property. Can we realise what It means? That we are only to re ceive 90o8 values for property which has almost doubled in value since that year. Are investors likely to build with this incubus hanging over the town. The statement is as bad as a German bomb or mine in the North Sea. We, perhaps, don't mind the Government taking over Qucanbeyan if they will give us the present value of property and not otherwise. Anyhow, the sooner the facts are known the better. At pre sent there is a pall over the town. Yours, etc., PROPERTY OWNER. [The Council decided at the last meeting to ascertain the Intentions of ...
GOD'S FOREKNOWLEDGE [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 23 March 1915
GOD'S FOREKNOWLEDGE BY PASTOR RUSSELL. Ts, L z., 21.-"Eas *C Father, for so it seemed good in Thy sight." lie held that the Almighty is dealing With mankind in no uncertain manner. It is a mistake to suppose, as many Chris tians and otheru seem to do, that God stared out without.i-definite plan, that Lie was interfered with by Satan, and has since been unable to cope with his evil opposition. God foreknew the end from the beginning, and is working all things according to the counsel of His own will, and for the highest welfare of His creattires, human and angelic. Pastor Russell declared that only those who, through the Bible, get a-glimpse of the glorious outworking of the Divine Plan, can understand God's reasons for permit ting the reign of sorrow and pain, of sin and death, for sai thousand years. The Almgst?yi',he said, designs to teach~ rcat lessons to angels and to men, and God's dealing with mankind has been very dii ferent from His dealing with angels. The holy angels, bein...

WITH WHICH ARE INCOII'OBATED QUSIANBTAN TIm?S, JUNGRNDOIBE MIIaROI AND CAPTAIN's FLAT MINBn TUESDAY. MAROCH 23, 1915. Current Topics. *.MINISTERIAL PRECEDENCE. Mn. ARTURn GRIFFITII, formerly Min ister for Public Works, but now Min ister for Education, has been unbur dening his soul on the subject of prec cedence, which his late colleague, Mr. Carmichael, found so burdensome that he saw no resource bpt to throw up his portfolio. Technically, says Mr. Griflith, Mr. Carmichael was right, namely, that men who had just dropped into Ministerial portfolios should not rank above those who had carried the standard for years. That is "one " for Mr. D. H. Hall, who hasjust "dropped into " the portfolio of Attorney-Gen eral. It is also "one" for the Pre mier, who has put this lately-arrived gentleman into the position of Acting Premier, over the heads of all his col leagues. Still, Mr. Griffith thinks that Mr. Carmichael attached far too great importance to this matter of pre cedence. The true ...

Patriotic Ball. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 23 March 1915
Patriotic Ball. " The best social gathering ever held at Tharwa !:' Such was t.he expres sion of opinion heard on all sides of the Patriotic Ball, in aid of the Fed eral Territory War Food Fund, held in the Cuppacumbalong wool-shed on Friday night last. Only a week ago, at the conclusion of the special shear ing, it was decided on holding the ball and the matter was taken up very enthusiastically by Mr. A. G. McKeahnie, the shearers and others. " Nothing i succeeds like success" was more than exemplified in con nection with the first big ball held at Cuppacumbalong, which it is hoped will now -become an annual affair.. As we have already stated when the idea of holding the ball was first mooted, it was taken up with interest' and later on the en thusiasm displayed by the ladies (upon whom the largest share of the work always falls), at once ensured success. All ' the numerous details were carefully attended. to, and the clerk of the weather, who unfortu nately has been in a " dry" m...

COOMA SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 26 March 1915
COOMA SHOW. THa Cooma P. & A. Association's t annual show was held on Wednes ay and Thursday last under. favorable weather conditions. Both as regards the number of entries and quality of exhibits, the exhibition was better thani last year. This was a matter of surprise, not alone to the visitors from surrounding centres, but even to the Cooma residents themselves. It was thought by many that the effects of the great European war would be detrimental to the success of the show apart from the fact that the Monaro district has suffered greatly from the lack of rain since the beginning of the year. However, all fears were disappointed, and the secretary, Mr. C. J. Walmsley, is to be highly com plinmented on the success of the 1915 show. This official, knowing that much depended on his efforts, threw all his energy into the work, and left nothing undone that would help in the slightest degree to bring the ex hibition to a successful issue. His attention to the- comfort of judges...
