The hall.was neatly docurated for thie occasion with flowers, and the local amateurs were assisted by several Wodonga and Albury favorites. The building was crowded, and Mr G. S. MIanna was voted to the chair. The chairman, in opening the proceedings,; gave a short history of the rise and progress of the institution, after which, he called upon the Misses Allen for the pianoforte selection, "Canary Bird Quadrilles," which was played ina very creditable manner.

MURDER AND SUICIDE NEAR ALBURY. [Newspaper Article] — Wodonga and Towong Sentinel — 19 November 1886

MURDER AND SUICIDE NEAR   ALBURY. The Davey mystery has not been satis- factorily cleared up before another tragedy in enacted near Albury. In this latter case, however, there is no mystery or doublt of any kind to solve, the whole circumstances in the affair indicatiug a deliberate case of murder and suicide, although there ia an absence of direct proof in the hypothesis of self-destruction. On Tuesday morning a man named Vibert, who kept a wayside store at Black Range, on the Jindera road, about six miles from Albury, went into a bedroom in which a woman named Garder, who lived with him as wife, was lying, and shot her dead. The poor woman had been in a very delicate state of health for some time past. The man frequently went in for drinking " bouts," and when in one of these he generally became very violent and uncontrollable. Besides his intemperate habits, he had latterly becomo very irritable in his conduct towards his paramour, more especially in regard to money ...

Wodonga & Towong Sentinel. "Awake! Arise! Or be for ever fallen!"—FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 26, 1886. [Newspaper Article] — Wodonga and Towong Sentinel — 26 November 1886

"Awake! Arise! Orbe for over fallen!" -MILTOS. FRIDAY, NOVEMIBER 28, 1886. Tnp Wodonga Shire Council has done some very funny things in its time, but itsnction on Tuesdayin connection with the appointment of an engineer is cer tainly the queerest and the most ec centric. All things being equal, it is generally conceded thata localapplicant for any offlice has an undeniable claini for priority over outsiders. Of course, some people will say that in theocase in question the local candidate was not ploperly qualified under the Amending Local Government Bill, and that the Beechworth applicant, upon whom the choice of tl?o council ulti mately fell, was possessed of the re quisite qualification. But it must be remembered that the local man is at present the town surveyor of Albury-a position surely as respon sible as the one he sought for here and that until he became qualified as a member of tile Municipal Surveyors' Board, which would in all probability be next February, he liiad obtail...
