THE -e—• luamitool Times. OUR MOTTO : " Truth is great, anil will prevail." WEDNESDAY, JULY 15, 1914. Local and General News.. The Proposed Loan. At the close of Cr. O'Donnell's address in the Quambatook Hall Mr Adamthwaite referred to the appointment of the Country Roads Board. He inferred that members of such Board could come into the Kerang'Shire and spend another £15,000 on top of the loan of a similar amount pro posed by Cr. O'Donnell; there fore, at this juncture, he did not think it advisable to borrow. Let the Board come along and Coun cil would only have to pay half. In all conscience, they had more than enough taxes already with out having to pay interest on a loan. In reply, Cr.

He had viewed the appointment of such a Board with much Tconcern, and did not j think they would accomplish all they were brought into existence for. They were spending money opening up thoroughfares to pleasur...
