OUR Natimuk correspondent writes :-Mr Charles T. Cook, one of the candidates for the office of councillor for the vacancy in the West Riding of the Wimmera shire, ad- dressed the ratepayers at BAoel's hotel on Saturday evening. Mr J. Kase, who was chosen as chairman, briefly' introduced the candidate; Mr Cook on rising said he would first give his reasons for offering himself as a candidate. It had been currently reported he had entered the field on his own accounts and not on the invitation of the ratepayers. This he firmly denied and stated that at a large meeting held at Clear Lake he was previously asked to come forward, but declined in favor of Mr. G. N. Cook, stating, however, that should that gentleman refuse, he would con- sent to be nominated. Mr G. N. Cook at first consented to come forward, but was compelled to-withdraw-through- sickness in his family, which would probably necessitate his removal from the district, and in con- formity to the promise made at the Clear Lake, he came forward. He then gave his views on shire matters. Several questions having been put and answered in a satisfac- tory manner, a vote of confidence was carried on the motion of Mr C. Schmidt, seconded by Mr C . Bell. Mr Tucker next addressed the meeting. He stated that he was induced to stand on account of the ratepayers of Clear Lake and Darragan having promisedl~ sun. port aoy one:decided upon at a meeting to be held at Noradjuha. At that meeting!he (Mr Tucker) was'selected, nd consented onh the underetanding'that he should haave the support of those three 'places. Since, he found he had beei misled, but still he con tended the right of the vacant seat belonged to their part of the riding. A vote of con. fdence .was passed in Mr'Tnuke' on the motion of -Mr A. Dancanseconded by Mr Broetoag after which" a vote of thanks was passed to the chairman, and the .meeting closed. - WE learnt last evening that the concert and ball held at Murra Warra on Friday evening was a great success. At the ball upwards of 200 werepresent. Dancing com menced at 11 o'clock, and was kept up with oat intermission until broad daylight. 411 seemed to :enjoy themselves to their fullest extent; the ball proving a worthy sequel to the concert and qu~te as great a success. YESERnAy Sergeant Larkan received the following official communication from the police station at Glenorehy :-'"I ;have to report for Sergeant Larkan's information that a fearfully heavy flood is now coming down the river, it is 10ft over the weir, and that means 2ft higher than the last one. The water is now in several people's houses and is stillrising. Should it rise any more I will forward a telegramn. I certainly consider it desirable for you to warn all interested.' No telegram has been sinee received. A M00 named Joseph Burns has been arrested at Casterton on a charge of biilglary. It appears that on the 23rd May the house of a Mr Whitcomb, of Hay,- New South-Wales, was burglariously entered by two men and robbed of jewellery and £13 in 'eashli Through information received in Hamilton that one of them was suspected to have fled in that direction; the police were on the alert and on Thursday a suspicionus character at tracted their attention in the evening train. Hoioever, it seems he managed to get safely in the Mi. Gambier coach. whence he pro eesded,bafthiijolice telegriphed the informs-. tion-to Casterton. and-he-was-accordingly arrested. Heis tobebrought back to Hamil." ton and from thence will doubtless be re-. manded to Hay. THe Dog Bill was again under considersa tion in the Legislative Council on Thursday night,. and' the scale of fees under the new Act-finally settled as follows:-For every. hound, greyhound, kangaroo dog or lnrcher, 0s;'for everypoiiitersetter or retriev r, 20s; for every sheep or eatble dog, bonajfide used for shepherding or driving sheep or cattle, Is ;for every dog kept beonafide as'a watch dog, of whatever breed, being the only such dog kept, 5s; for every other dog, 10s.. MIr Wallace suggested that householders should be allowed to keep two watch dogs at the 5s. rate, but Mr Anderson thought that owners otextensive premises were able to pay the higher fee for a second dog. Good pro. gre?s was also made in committee with the Local Government Bill, and 13 clauses were agreed to, with amendments proposed by Mr Anderson. Discussion took place on the proposal, to prevent municipal treasurers from holding more than one office. Some members thought that the restriction would be burdensoine to shires which coold .nc o afford to keep up a numerous staff'of officers. ra ndersonsaid ti?t the difficulty wouldn be overcome by appointing the 'local bank manager, or a ratepJaye?ofi god Laudingg, s treasurer, and gaivig a nomainal saary.

TiHE defeat of Cr Brophy, of Ballarat; Cr Mi'Mahon, of Fitzroy; and Cr Carroll, of fotham, 'has- states the "Age" caused general satisfaction, and a determination is expressed on all sides to follow up the lesson taught on Thursday in these municipalities byr clearing away fromn'municipal circles all th;se councilors, as opportunity offers, who have recently betrayed their sympathies with the Redmond Brothers and their so. called patriotic mission. It is significant that of the four Fitzroy councillors-M-essrs Brooks, Woodhead, Showers and Bennetts who opposed Mr.?M'Mahou and the Redmond mission at the council table, Cr Brooks headed the poll by nearly 12000 votes, and if Mr WVeodhead had also been a candidate for re-election it is believed that he would have had quiten eqial support. So strong was the feeling amongst the Redmond sympa. thisers that they nearly all plumped for M'Malhon; whilst Mr Britten, who presented the' ati-Redmond pietition to the council. apd who beat their candidate by 500 votes, vas specially tabooed, and got no support from them. IT is stated by a contemporary that a step towards irrigation has been initiated at Shepparton. Mr Lightfoot, of Swallow and Sons, has a flour mill driven by a 20-horse power engine in Shepparton; this is supplied with water from the Goulburn some few hundred feet away. He also has an estate of something over 2,000 acres about two or three miles distant, and he intends laying pipes to irrigate his land, pumping water in Shepparton into a large tank and running it along by means of these pipes to the land. This will be a costly affair, but it shows great pluck and enterprise. Of course the irri gated part of the garden, land, &c, will be hut a small fraction of the estate, but he will never be short of water for his stock, &e. He has had to drive miles nearly every summer for water. -.EcaES referring to a story told the other day by Bishop Moorhouse to the Education Commissioners, of the painfully grotesque reply of a child uninstructed in spiritual things, says that a correspondent vouches for this, which furnishes another illustration of the same kind of ignorance. A Presbycerian minister called at the hut of a boundary.rider at Tolarno on the Darling. Not finding either M'Innes or his wife at home, the minister opened a conversation with their son there, about 10 years of age: Minister.--"Is your father or mother at home '" Boy,-" No, sir. tiister.--Casn you read or write, my. little r inster n (an'oou to improve the occasion.) SDo yolknow anything of God?" Boy.-"No, sir." M ?nister (with astonishment in his voice). " Have you neverbhear of your Creator ?" By.-"No, sir, Ihaven't, bt if he's anywere oundaoy-riding on the ricer, dcad will knowe him. He's bees about here these twentyyears." Arid there mare many instances of ignorance no less shocking.
