ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 4 May 1917

AN'SWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. "Buffoon."—I can't advise you on   the subject. If the girls wear their dresses up to their knees or above, and such sights are, in your opinion, an act of indiscretion, then turn your face away, or put up your umbrella; but you are evidently not up-to-date in ideas. You should know ladies must follow the fashions; they have dressed in tight clothes and worn few garments to display their beautiful forms; it is all done to be admired by you men; it shows how accommodating they are; and with the low-necked blouses they are doing their best to please. What have you to grumble about ? You must be an old bachelor from the sour-grape country, or brought-up in a vinegar factory. Wink the other eye and pre- tend you take no notice. You say your aunt weighs 20 stone, and is 80 inches round the waist, and she dresses in the fashion. Well, that's her busi- ness. If she is satisfied, what then? "Ginger."—I am no authority on "red hair." Red-heads belong ...

THE PHYSICAL STANDARD. "BANTAMS" TO BE ACCEPTED. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 4 May 1917

THE PHYSICAL STANDARD. "BANTAMS" TO BE ACCEPTED. The "bantam"—the man of small   stature who has hitherto been debarred from enlisting in the A.I.F.—is at last to have an opportunity of putting on khaki and joining forces with his fellow countrymen who are already serving in the ranks of Australia's fighting army. It was announced yesterday by the Minister of Defence that after careful consideration of the height standard for the Australian Imperial Force, and after obtaining the opinion of the Imperial Army Authori- ties, General Birdwood and the army medical authorities regarding the matter, he had approved of the fol- lowing orders being issued :— "That the standard of height and chest measurement for enlistment in   the A.I.F. should be as follows:—   Minimum height, without boots, 5 feet 2 inches, minimum chest girth when fully expanded, 83 inches." Notwithstanding the above minimum measurements for height, the Minister added, he had issue...

CAMPAIGN POINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 4 May 1917

CAMPAIGN POINTS. It is falsely said that the interests of the workers will not be safe with a Federal Government which includes Liberals. The National Party is pledged not to interfere with Labour legislation. It will not reduce the Maternity Allowance, nor Old Age, Invalid, or Military Pensions. The welfare of the worker is safer with Hughes than with Ferricks. No pledge could be more binding than that in which the National Party says that conscription will not be introduced behind the backs of the people. Does any man or woman of common   sense say that Mr Tudor's party is doing   anything but heap abuse on the Prime Minister? Mr Brookfield, of Broken Hill, who would only fight for the red flag of revolution, remains in the Official Labour Party. Mr. Hughes, whose only crime is that he kept the Fisher pledge, has been expelled. Enough said!       R. AINGE JOHNSON, National Campaign Council, 395 Collins- street, Melbo...

Wood's Great Peppermint Cure,             For Coughs and Colds, never fails, 1s 6d. COMMONWEALTH OF AUSTRALIA PRIME MINISTER. Fellow Citizens,— Melb., April 25th, 1917. The issue in this campaign stands out bold and clear, like a great mountain peak. The civilised world is engaged in the greatest war of all the ages, fighting for Liberty and Democracy against Military Despotism. The question that every elector is to answer by his or her vote at the ballot box is this: Shall Australia play her part in the great life and death struggle as becomes a nation of free citizens, fighting for all they hold dear? Are we going to prove ourselves worthy of our freedom, of the protection of the Empire and of the sacrifice freely made by millions of our kinsmen, and by our own brave soldiers, the men of Gallipoli and Pozieres? Remember that the interests of Australia and the Empire are one. Vote for the Nationalists, wh...

ELTHAM. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 4 May 1917

ELTHAM. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) Anzac Day was celebrated at the local State school on the 25th ult. At 2 p.m. the children were mustered round the flag-pole in the school ground and carried out the prescribed formula under the guidance of the head teacher, Mr C. Overman, assisted by Miss Sweeney, assistant. About 80 scholars were present, and about 20 residents, including some members of the School Committee. When the out-door pro- ceedings were over the children and visitors adjourned to the schoolroom, where addresses were given by Mr Gilsenan, J.P., and Mr Mercer, Glen Park, and also by a retired veteran from the naval forces, Mr Reardon, the holder of two service medals. The latter gentleman also gave some inter- esting musical items from a splendid gramophone. The head-teacher also   gave a brief resume of the Gallipoli operations, illustrated by maps. The children sang patriotic songs at inter- vals, the whole closing with cheers for King and our soldier boys, o...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 4 May 1917

TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. Dear Sir.—I read with amazement in an article by "Unohoo" in your valuable paper   of the large amount of property owned by Cr W. G. Gray. As that gentleman has such a big interest in the township of Hurstbridge, one would naturally conclude that he would do all in his power to advance the town, more especially as he has the handle of Cr. before his name ; but I hear, on good authority, that such is not the case, for, instead of posting his letters at the local post-office (of which he has a great number) he posts them at the railway station, thereby reducing the return of the local post-office, which is sent in to the Postmaster-General's Department. Is it any wonder, Mr Editor, that the Hurstbridge mail has been reduced to one mail per day instead of two ? Is Cr Gray acting judiciously and fairly to the best interests of the inhabitants? Of course, he can, as a matter of fact, please himself where he deposits his letters, but still, fo...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 4 May 1917

TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER.   Dear Sir,—In your issue of the 27th inst. there is a notice by J. Hutchison. I really think he would have been wiser to let things be as they were. In the notice he infers that Mr Ward paid him a considerable amount of money in settlement of the said action, wishing, no doubt, to convey the idea that he (Mr Hutchison) won his suit. Now, let us look at the facts. Mr. Hutchi- son claimed from Mr Ward some hundreds of pounds for false representation, and asked special damages. Mr Ward offered him at the first moment the return of all the money paid (which was refused), and take the property back, as he (Mr Ward) had not   falsely represented the property, which has been acknowledged by Mr Hutchison, as per circular sent per post, and not denied by Mr Hutchison in the notice in your columns. He only denies not signing the circular. Now, if my information is correct, the settlement was :—Mr Ward took over the property, returned...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 4 May 1917

TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. Sir,—In your issue of the 27th ult., your correspondent, Herbert Hewitt, mentions that it was owing to the action of Mr. Beasley, M.L.A., that the municipalities interested were not called upon to pay the demand made upon them in connection   with the alleged deficit on the Collingwood railway, and I desire to point out that Mr. Beasley did practically nothing in this direction, it was the late Edgar Wilkins, M.L.A., who so strenuously fought the Department and ultimately achieved the feat of getting withdrawn a charge amount- ing to many thousands of pounds against the municipalities, and for which both Collingwood and Heidelberg should be under an everlasting debt of gratitude. Two names stand out in particular promi- nence in connection with communication to this district; they are: the late Honorable E. H. Cameron, M.L.A., and the late Edgar Wilkins, M.L.A. May their memories long be kept green. HONOUR TO WHOM HONOUR IS DUE.

THE COLONIAL BANK OF AUSTRALASIA LTD [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 4 May 1917

THE COLONIAL BANK OF AUSTRALASIA LTD. The net profit for the 6 months ended 31st March, 1917, of the Colonial Bank of Australasia Ltd. amounted to £27,024 2s 9d. This is after providing for a 10 per cent. bonus paid to the staff on the amount of their salaries for the half-year. The bal- ance-sheet which has just been pub- lished shows what a strong position the bank is in. The balance-sheet, as usual, shows great strength in coin, bullion, debentures, and other liquid assets, which amount to no less than £2,013,941. This is more than would be required to meet the total of the non interest bearing deposits, and is equivalent to 44.8 per cent. of the total liabilities of the bank. It is proposed to pay a dividend at the rate of 7 per cent. per annum on both preference and ordinary shares, and place £10 000 to the reserve fund, making £20 000 for the year, and raising it to £280 000. The solidarity of this institution should be most gratifying to its shareho'ders, as well as to all de...

STRATHEWEN. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) On Saturday last, 28th ult., the   final meeting was held in the State school in connection with the euchre party and dance, dated to take place in the Publio Hall on May 11th. com- mencing at 8 p.m. sharp. The Com- mittee are working hard to make this affair an evening of fond memories, so to speak, and to judge by the enthus-   iasm they are putting into the work a gratifying success sholld be attained. This entertainment is for a worthy cause—socially to celebrate the opening of the aforesaid school and to financially assist to line and paint the building. First-class prizes for lady and gent have been donated for the tourney, and with the dance music in the capable hands of Mr and Amrs P. W. J. Mur- phy, leaves nothing to be desired in that direction. The efficient M.C., Mr P. Brennan, will be in attendance. Come early and stay late, a jolly good time, and a cordial welcome assured. We need your help and desire your c...
