CHEQUES "NOT NEGOTIABLE" AND "PER PRO." [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 24 February 1914

CHEQUES "NOT NEGOTIABLE" AND "PER PRO." The legal position of a collecting banker who receives payment of a cheque crossed "not negotiable" or signed "per pro," where the cue tomer's title is bad or defective, is somewhat unsettled. The latest case Is that of Crumplin v. London Joint Stock Band Ltd. ('" Times,"' 19th No vemberu), In which both these points were raised. The plaintiff was a stockbroker, employing as manager one Hands, who brought in business on half conunission terms. In this way he introduced one Davies, who had one transaction. But from 1009 to 1903 Rands carried out a series of speculations through the plaintiff, really for himself, but in the name and as on behalf of Davies. When differ ences became due to the client, Rands prepared cheques for him as payee, crossed "not negotiable,'' and the plaintiff signed them. In two of the eleven cases the cheques were signed "per pro" by Rands, and in all of them he endorsed the payee's name. These cheques were paid in to h...

DRAGOONING MEMBERS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 24 February 1914

DRAGOONING MEMBERS. The absence of the closure in the State Parliament undoubtedly puts State Ministers at a grave disadvan tage as compared with their Com monwealth brethren in dealing with bores and time-wasters. Of course, Parliamentary traditions die hard; but it certainly does seem time for the adoption of some system under which windbags of the Hannah, Web ber, Webster, Farrer, Fenton and Higgs typo should be possible of sup pression. As things go, it seems very hard that not only should a long suffering public be forced to pay these blatant self advertisers good money as members of Parliament, but should also be subjected to bearing pecuniary loss through their action, writes our Melbourne correspondent.

COMMONWEALTH METEOROLOGY. WEATHER OVER VICTORIA FOR WEEK ENDED FEBRUARY 20. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 24 February 1914

COMMONWEALTH METEOROLOGY. WEATHER OVER VICTORIA FOR !WEEK ENDED FEBRUARY 10. The week has, without doubt, been the hottest for the season. This seems the more extraordinary when the lateness of the season is taken into account. The maxima have not been exceptional, and, indeed, have been lower by several degrees than those recorded earlier in the month, but the heat has been prolonged and general. On every day for the week 100 degrees has been reached or ex ceeded by a large number of stations. The highest, 106 degrees, was record ed at several stations on each of the four consecutive days, the 16th, 17th 1Sth and 19th. The passage of a slight trough brought a brief respite to Southern districts on Sunday, but by Monday the two "highs" had merged into one, and the southerly breeze everywhere abated, except along the coast. Thereafter the pressure dis tribution embodied all the essential features of a South-east Australian heatwave, viz., high pressures station ary over Tasman Sea, a...
