THE PATRIOTIC FUND [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 22 August 1914
TH ' PATRIOTIC FUND In almost every quarter the sugges tion in last Saturday's Advertiser that a local patriotic fund should be opened was received with expressions of ap proval, and it was adopted with prom ptitude by the Mayor (Cr Drew), who, inferentially, made an appeal for funds at Monday night's council meeting. Disappointment was expressed, how ever, at the absence of an announce ment that a public meeting would be called to more fully bring the appeal under the notice of residents; to ar range for systematic collecting, and by stirring speech to rouse the people to the need for money to provide for thpse likely to suffer through the outbreak of war.

, : THE 2RAMWAY. :i : SCHEME CONDEMNED. ANOTHER EFFORT SUGGESTED, S Imposslble as it is to even Serl ously consider tile adoption of tihe scheme for tramway commun.cation between Esseudon. Footstray and Williamstown, local councillors should not follow what will probably be the first inellnation of all colcerned, or, at least, all those capable of looking at the proposition from a business standpoint. There are thoe, ap parently, who are prelpared to sacri flce Footseray's ilhalncial future in order that the outer po:tions of the shires of Werribee and Blraybrook might be developed, but others see that the route selectelcd for proposed tramways is absUlutely devoid of at traction. and can lead to nothing but \.disastrous loss and final abandon ment, like the outer circle railway, if adopted.
