THE COMMONWEALTH BANKING POSITION. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 24 February 1914
THE COMMONWEALTH BANKING POSITION. Our well-informed Sydney corres pondent writes:-The banking returns of the Commonwealth are somewhat prejudiced by the tact that the Com monwealth Bank, which furnishes re turns, includes its savings bank figures. The savings bank business hitherto has been kept entirely sep arate from that of the cheque-paying panks. The alscrepancy, as yet, how ever, is not very formidable. As the totals, compiled by Melbourne "Ar gus,'' now stand, they show an in considerable increase-less than a mil lion-in balances at credit \of cur rent accounts, but a considerable in crease-nearly two millions-in depos its bearing interest which is to some extent satisfactory. Coin and Aus tralian notes between them show an increase of over six millions; and advances, and other debts due to the banks, a decrease of five millions, as compared with the December quarter of last year. The exhibit demon strates that a cautious policy has been maintained in the interval, and men w...

THE RECENT FIRES IN GIPPO LAND. Mr. F. E. Benussi had the misfor tune to have his farm at Devon burn ed over. He lost 200 acres of grass and all his fencing.

THE SYDNEY P.L.L. CONFERENCE [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 24 February 1914
THE SYDNEY P.L.L. CONFERENCE Our Sydney correspondent writes: -The P.L.L. Conference has finished its session. The results are smaller than usual. The resolution that no alteration should be made in the plat form unless 100 delegates were pre sent prevented the carrying of sever al drastic resolutions, and thus post poned the breach which, it is bellev ed, must sooner or later occur be tween the leagues and the Parlia mentary Labour Party. The most startling resolution carried was the one which declares that women should be admitted into the Legislative Coun ci. when (or if) fresh appointments are made. The conference, however, rejected a proposal to "let up" on the Council, and the abolition of that body still occupies a premier position in the platform. Prominent members of the P.L.L. maintain that the deci sions of the conference are binding on Ministers and on their pledged La bour supporters. It remains to be seen how far this view will be ac-. cepted by the latter. In. any cas...

GETTING A DRINK. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 24 February 1914
GETTING A DRINK. Our Melbourne correspondent writes: In connection with reports on the closer settlement system, some good stories are being told about some of the old-time settlers who, singular to say, managed to make a good deal of money on properties that are now declared to be useless. One of the most amusing is about a squatter In the Western District, who belonged to a hard drinking family. The gentle man in question went so far beyond the limit that he was brought under what was locally known as the Black fellows' Act. In other words, a pro hibition order was issued by the lo cal magistrates forbidding publicans to supply himn with liquor. The sta tion supplies of grog were kept from him as far as possible. One day he and the cook, also a hard drinker, were alone at the station, but without an available drop of whisky, though "Jack"' know there should be a five gallon keg of Long John somewhere about. The cook explained that. "Jack's" brothers had, to keep it out of his reac...
CAUSES OF FIRES. (From the " Argus." Feb. 23.) [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 24 February 1914
CAUSES OF FIRES. (From the ''Argus,'' Feb. 23.1 Bush fires in Victoria destroy about £100,000 worth of timber !yearly in the State forests alone. Last summer 51,000 acres, in tracts regularly pa trolled by the State forest staff, were destroyed. In addition to this, 20,000 acres were swept by fire at the sources of the Thompson, Avon. M'acalister, and Mitchell rivers. in the Australian Alps, and in Croajingalong. A good deal of this destruction was wrought Iy settlers who had been ' burning off" and had burned off vastly too much. They were indifferent as to the spread of the flames. The conser vator of forests remarked of the set tlers in the Ot way Ranges:-''Selec tors did not conceal their belief that the best means cf getting the whole district settled was to denude and de stroy the whole of the high ranges."' Thi conservator recommended a re striction in the issue of annual graz incc licenses, and this was adopted by the Ministry. "On the high country le-tnteen Tien Cruachan an...
