DEATHS, of people named Osborne in Tumut till 1889.




It is feared that Mr Thomas Broken, a wealthy squatter, residing at Wagra, Tumut River, N.S.W., has been drowned. He is missing since Thursday night, when he left Gundagai after dark for Wagra, having to cross ithe Tumut River, which is in flood. On Friday morning his horse was found, and a search for him proved fruitless. A bottle containing liquor, and also his papers and marks where his horse entered the lagoon, were discovered. Several people procured a boat and proceeded to drag for the body. - (Ref- The Ballarat Star (Vic. : 1865 - 1924)(about) Previous issue Monday 30 August 1886 Next issue Previous page Page 2).

The annual meeting of the above was held in Brungle Hall last week when only ten dairymen at tended out of thirty on the list.

After the minutes and corre spondence were dealt with, and the Wyangle cream run contract being dispensed with, the annual report and balance-sheet were presented and adopted.

SECRETARY'S REPORT In reviewing the activities of this branch of the P.P. Union for the year ending 1943, it will be remembered that we only affiliated with the District Council this year. This being our first year, we did not accomplish as much as we desired. We held four meetings during the year, which were only fairly well attended. Our branch had been represented by our delegate, Mr. W. McGillivray, at three District Council meetings. At our quarterly meeting, held in August, the following motion was conveyed to the District Council by our delegate and then onto Central Executive by Mr. Asimus, namely,

'That the butter subsidy be continued for five years and the amount of subsidy be such as to give producers a margin over the cost of production. The motion was well received by Central Executive, it being considered by that body a step in the right direction. At our meeting in November a resolution was conveyed to the District Council urging the Liquid Fuel Control Board to make available sufficient petrol for the conveyance of cream from the farms to the factory.

This resolution was also placed berore Central executive by Mr. Asminus, the district delegate.

Quite a number of dairy men have gone out of business this year and our branch fully realises that the dairymen must organise and keep on doing so in order to keep the industry from going on the rocks. At the present time it is heading that way. At this stage the alarm of a bush fire at Darbalara put an end to the meeting, but before it was closed the secretary announced that he was retiring as he had given up dairying and wasn't interested. A resolution was carried asking the Chairman, Mr. McGillivray, to convene a meeting in the near future for the selection of officers for 1944.

Attendance for the past year was as follows: — W. McGillivray 4, E. Hargreaves 4, L. Frost 4, S. Larbalestier 4, P. Kelly 4, E. Knox 4, A. Hartshorn 3, E. Owen 3, M. French 3, L. Bower 3, H.
