PERTINENT QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough, Eltham and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 12 August 1916
PERTINENT QUESTION. Sir,-In connection with the pertinent question asked of Mr Terry, which has involved the secretary to the shire council (Mr Price), I feel at such a time like this when dame rumor has thought fit to en ter into the controversy, to give an-em phatic denial to the false report that has been circulated, that I, the brother of Cr. Stobie, whom the question affects, was the person who asked for an answer. Not being present at the meeting myself, Ifail to understand the reason why I have been implicated, unless it Is the in tention of the originator to try and soli cit some sympathy for the purpose of de feating a ratepayer who has offered his services to the people in the capacity as a councillor.-Yours, &c., Bll.Street, A. A. STosE. Heidelberg, 9/8/16.
WAR ANNIVERSARY. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough, Eltham and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 12 August 1916
WAR AŽNIVIERSARY.. At Sc'ts Church, Heidelberg, the Rev. A. 11ardie said as we look back upon these two awful years and think how the Motherland faced such fearful odds, we set our faces grimly and we deliberately Way'i iis well. The moral and spiritual ideals have gripped us with their stony hand and we feel that sacrificeof wealth, of life, and of all earthly things is amply justified. Before the war Great Britain was losing sight of the highest. The drink traffic was allowed to slay its thousands. The nations have arisen, and Russia has cleared its country of vodka, France .has followed suit, and Great. Britain has awakened and is seeking to throw off King Alcohol. In-three States in the Consnonwealth the people have densanded the closing of the liquor bars, and are about to do the same here. It is an element of hope, the unity of the peo. p1e, the spirit of the mothers who have given their sons, the never ceasing acts of devotion, and the freewill offerings of the people show th...

AN EXPLANATION. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough, Eltham and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 12 August 1916
AN EXPLANATION. Sir,-P?ermit me a few lines to express my surprise and indignation at Mr Price's (shire secretary's) letter in your issue of the 5th instant. lie says my husband (E. WV. Terry) called to see him unin cited. This is utterly untrue, as he (Mr Price) telephoned to " The Gables " on Wednesday, July 12th, about 11.30 a.m. and asked for Mr Terry. J answerdd the call. Mr Terry came tb the 'phone, and Mr Price asked him to call and see him, and my husband said he would do so. If I may, I should advise Mr Price to keep an appointment book, and per haps save further trouble for himself and others. This is hardly a time to be grumbling through the Press when the world is so full of sadness. Thanking you in anticipation.--ours, c., ' 1I4mOIiEIl TxEstt. " The Gables," Iosanna road, Heidelberg.
