At Eaglehawk on Saturday night Dr. H. R.

Catford, who has joined the Army Medical Corps,     and is going to the front, was given a farewell social by the residents, the mayor of Eaglehawk     (Councillor G. H. Green) presiding over a large attendance. Dr. Catford was presented by the    

mayor with a set of surgical instruments.  

There was only a small attendance at the   adjourned half-yearly meeting of the Bendigo branch   of the Federated Mine Employees' Association on       Saturday night. The election for committee re-     sulted in the return of Messrs. J. H. Pascoe (582   votes), W. J. Turner (548), C. Stewart (537), J.

Williams (536), J. Scott (526), J. Bodilly (520),   J. R. Turner (518), C. Branch (477), E. Smith (426), and J. Stirton (435). Mr. D Enever (405)   was defeated. He had occupied a seat on the

committee for many years. The meeting carried   the following resolution:—      

"That the members of this branch express

their entire approval of the action of the State   Executive in bringing their case before the   wages board, and considers the demand for a higher rate of wages is a justifiable and reason-

able one."  

Prior to leaving Bendigo for the metropolis,

Corporal A. M. Pearce, the former Melbourne footballer, who was killed at the Dardanelles, was   a regular adherent of All Saints' Pro-Cathedral,    

his father, Mr. A. J. Pearce, being superintendent of the Sunday-school. On Sunday a memorial ser-     vice for the fallen soldier was conducted by the Rev. Canon Percival. The service was a most   impressive one.
