EARLY TRAIN. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 7 November 1912
EARLY TRAIN. TO THE EDITOR:. Sin,-It seems fitting that some of the glievances of the progressive town of Werribeo wore once more brought under the notice of the Victorian public, and, incidentally, under the notice of the Railway Commissionors. - The object of this letter is to promulgate the claims which this, district possesses for an early morning train service. It seems, Sir, that Verriboe has been grossly overlooked in. the- past, and it is high time that this town was put on an equal footing with places of a similar distance from Mel bourne,. and which possesses the same or smaller population. I think I" am. right in saying that Verribee is the only town within twenty miles of Melbourne. which ha's n.u eiarly" train service,. and whlro a Sunday.train is an unheard of imnpdssibility. An early train service to Werribeo would: be the means of developing a. district in which other Government depart ments have already manifested much interest,. It might also serve to awake Laverto...

110W FARMERS ARE. PLUN DERED. [BY V. I-I. RENWICKc. The existing: dispute int the cement trade gives very definito evidence as to how the groat pro ducing interests of the State* are plundored, by the comparatively few peolleo who- manipulate the politics of Australia in, their own, interests.
