The cleared spaces around this property assisted the firefighters, who burnt a break past Kyogle and Alston as far as the deep gully. This the fire crossed, and burned fiercely towards Woondia Mia and Fern Acre. Towards evening it died down. During the night 67 points of rain fell, accompanied by a thunderstorm, and extinguished the fire.9

  • 26 May 1915, RAMAGE. RE-ARRANGEMENT OF OFFICES. Mr James Ramage, who has acted as clerk of works for the Berwick shire council for the past 22 years, has resigned from that position. In his resignation, which was put before the coun cil at last Saturday's meeting, Mr Ramage stated that the work of the shire was increasing and he felt that he was unable to cope with it. Cr James said the council was hardly prepared for such a drastic change as the resignation would cause. He was sure all would greatly regret the loss of Mr Ramage. He had proved himself a valuable officer. He (Cr James) knew from his general observation, extending over a period of about 16 years, that Mr Ramage had taken the greatest of interest in his work—he could not have done more if the expenditure were his own. He was always anxious about any work in hand, and gave it close attention. He had a practical knowledge of the council's require ments and attended to his work faithfully. His duties would be partly taken up by the secretary who had also proved himself a painstaking officer, and had, given close attention to his duties. He had no doubt that Mr Ahern's work would meet with the same approval as that carried out by Mr Ramage. He understood that Mr Ramage felt the work was too much for him. However, as Mr Ahern was taking on the work, he felt the council would be all right. He asked Mr Ramage if there was any chance of his re-considering the position Mr Ramage said he had definitely made up his mind on the subject.
    Cr James remarked that the council was losing a valued and tried servant, and he moved that the resignation be accepted with very much regret. Cr Henty, in seconding the motion, said the council was losing an excellent officer—one who knew every nook and corner of the shire and had done much good work. He was glad to know they were not losing Mr Ramage altogether as he would still hold the post of rate collector and would attend the meetings. He was looked upon as the father of the council, and they all hoped that he would be spared for very many years to meet with them and assist them with his advice. Cr Close said he regretted Mr Ramage was leaving. In carrying out his work he always had the ratepayers' wishes at heart, and he had been of great assist ance to the shire.
    Cr Barr endorsed all that had been said. They were losing a good man, and he much regretted it. Mr Ramage had a nice way of dealing with the ratepayers, and generally managed to secure what he wanted. The President regretted that Mr Ramage was giving up the position. Some had complained of the work done by him, but he could say of Mr Ramage that there was never a more faithful servant to the people, and none more scrupulous. When con tracting he had received fatherly advice from Mr Ramage, which he did not altogether appreciate at the time, but it had taught him a good lesson. Mr Ramage had carried out his duties faithfully and well. The motion was carried.
    Cr Henty then explained that the resignation necessitated a re arrangement of officers, which had been decided on as follows: —The services of Mr Keys as consulting engineer would be retained, and he would receive £100 per annum, as against £25 at present ; MrAhern would act as clerk of works and receive £50 extra ; and Mr Ramage would act as rate-collector and attend to other duties, at a salary of L120. The change meant an extra cost to the council of L25. He moved that these officers be appointed. The motion was seconded by Cr James and carried.7
