Other People's Views. MITTAGONG AND BAD ROADS. THE EDITOR THE MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 29 January 1924

Other People's Views. MITTAGONG AND BID 110ADS. Toe Euitoh Tbe Mail. j Sir,— With reference to tbe article in your issue of 18th January, in which attention wis drawn to a hump on tbe Main Southern Road 41 about 8 or lu tpiffs on tbe-8ydney side ot MiUagone.l' Jthfcb it was alleged has been tbe caute of -H!ftViil accidents, and tbe responsibility for wliipl) you attribute to tbe Nattai Sbire Council, I beg to inform you I that this matter has been investigated, and it i was found that tbe place complained of ie 14 miles from Mittagong, and not in the Nattai Shire area. The writer admitted that hie speed was 20 to 25 miles per hour; as a motorist I can safely assume that he means the latter figure and add a few miles to that — it certainly seemed a short 14 miles to the driver when he estimated tbe distanoe at 8 or 10 —Yours etc., C. N. LEE, Shire Clerk.

Mr. Hammond at the Empire. "PROHIBTION AS SUCCESSFUL AS A MOTOR CAR". [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 29 January 1924

Mr. Hammond at the Empire. 'PROHIBTION AS SUCCESSFUL AS A MOTOR CAR'. The Rev. R. B. S. Hammond, who has on three occasions investigated prohibition in Canada and U.S.A., addressed a large audience in the Empire Theatre on Fridayy night. The audience seemed deeply im pressed. In 1919, said Mr. Hammond, there were 63 people convicted every day for drunkenness in N.S.W., and for the year ending 1923, there were 99 convicted each day.. They spent in N.S.W. more than £3000 an hour for 12 hours each day in which the liquor bars were open. The tragic failure of our present sys tem was beyond dispute. With many a good story, Mr. Hammond took ? his audience on a tour of investigation, and told them many striking things about the for teigh population of U.S.A. _ There were only five cities in Germany with a larger German popu ation than lives in Chicago. On Manhattan Isand, the heart of New York, only one person in every 15 spoke English by birth right. Manhattan was the largest Jewish city ...

^HE BEAUTIES of the Southern Highlands find hosts of new ad mirers every year. Their pre sence in the tourist towns creates a perennial problem of accommoda tion. Where shall all the new comers be housed? Every centre is adding to its accommodation with desperate haste, but nowhere is the supply equal to the demand. What are we to do about it. We must do something. The pro gress of all our towns depends unon our ability to cater for a constantly growing tourist traffic. It is like the proverbial snowball. The scores who come to-day tell their friends of the wonderful time they have had — anc. to-morrow the scores have grown to hundreds. In a little time it will be thousands. The town that pays' most attention to its roads and foot paths, to its parks and gardens, to providing modern conveniences of every kind, will reap the richest har vest. But it must provide accom imnuuauon — varied accommodation to meet the needs of all classes. The annual report of the Moss Vale Tourist Associa...

STRAIGHT WAISTCOATS FOR MANKIND. (Published by Arrangement) [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 1 February 1924

STRAIGHT WAISTCOATS FOR MANKIND. (Published by Arrangement) Referring to the recent inter national Conference of the 'Adver- saires des Prohibitions,' held at London, the local 'Tablet' com plains that there is an increasing tendency to identify what are called the Christian (JnurcHes, with programmes which logically in volve Prohibition, and to imply that xve can hardly be Christians unless we are militant teetotallers. In op position to the reasonable and spirit ual policy of promoting temperance by education and moral suasion, the ideal of establishing universal com pulsory total abstinence by Act of Parliament. Sobriety is making such rapid strides among us that hardly one person in a thousand was convicted for drunkenness last year. In contrast, the Nonconformist prescriptions and the actual condi tion of Prohibitionist America make an ignoble show. 'In short,' concludes the journal, 'a straight waistcoat is being pre pared for mankind in which the free choice of 'sweet Tempera...

TALLOWEENA. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 1 February 1924

TALLOWEENA. (From a Correspondent) The holiday-makers, per boot, motor, side car and push bike, which this year have been of a varied and distinguished class passed over and through the rough road and river quietly. Save one exception, this Kr*rih*- «nfr. hpnr hullnrk driver language applied to the Nattai councillors. Probably the dearth of travellers this Christmas accounts for the fact. Mark Morton is making his pre sence felt in the old Macquarie street house, and as a result we are to have in the near future a con crete causeway in the Talloweena crossing, the wisdom of which, please note, your scribe is for the present silent. Owing to a hitch in arrangements between the Department and a would-be tenant, the catering at the Caves House is now being temporar ily carried out by Mr. T. M. Chalker.
