DIAMOND CREEK ROADS. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 21 July 1922
DIAMOND CREEK ROADS. Sir,-I have read the report of your correspondent at Diamond Creek referr ing to the condition of the - roads 'gener-. ally of Diamond Creek. -4 think it is a pity that your correspondent has found it necessaryto write in this strain, be cause we all know that in wet weather the roads are bound to be slushy and in the portion of the shire that I reside in it is nothing new to be in a condition that my boots require changing when I reach the station. But I am not quiteso fussy about that and recognize that if we can get reasonable roads we should be, thankful. I will admit that I could do with a little more attention to my road, and I know other back roads can do with attention. I see that your correspondent says that there is a surplus for this iding. No doubt he is better i-iformed on that point than I am, but from what I can see whatever amount is due to our portionof the riding far too much is spent in and around the township of Diamond Creek, and not enoughi...

Why is this thus? Is it fair to those who have paid. and is there no remedy ? This council talked a lot about summousing sometime ago. .Was\ it only bluff? And did those defaulters know it as such, while the mugs not in the'ktiow tum bled -over each other, rates in hand, to keep clear of the police court? Now that Mr Everard, M.L.A., is bringing in a Bill to rate the Metropolitan -Board, can the council do nothing to strengthen his hand ? Why not call public meeting ini each Ridling to support him ? If su:h ?a Bill wore Ipased it would be the salvation of Whittlesea and Eltham Shires. The above Board holds thousands of acres of land, innchof it first. class land, and'close to the railway, which would su...

OLD LANDMARK. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 21 July 1922
OLD LANDMARK &nbsp; An old landmark of the district is to be shortly demolished: That is &nbsp; Kaylock's bridge, which is affection- &nbsp; ately called "the old rustic bridge." &nbsp; At one time, as in the song, it was indeed "the old rustic bridge by the &nbsp; mill," as a flour mill was situated a short distance away. The proprietor of this mill (Mr Ford) is, I under- &nbsp; stand, still living, and resides in the Shepparton district. That was in the good old days, when Eltham boasted also a tannery and a brewery, but like Goldsmith's "Deserted Village," it de- &nbsp; veloped into a lethargic state, and earned the title-a not misplaced one -of "Sleepy hollow." But now the fairy prince has come and broken the enchantment; and so the rustic bridge must go. The council is building a new and up to-date bridge to replace it. The electrification of the railway line will do more than this, and ad- vancement, although all right in...

COMPULSION IN AR[?]ITRATIO. Scope of Commonwealth Law. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 21 July 1922
COMPULSIOM IN A? rI-TRATIO - Scope of Commonwealth Law. The Commonwealth Court of Con :iliation and Arbitration was created to Jeal with indstrial disputes of an in ter-State character, the intention of the Legislature being that the States should minister to the ills of labour within their own boundaries. The idea at the back of the Commonwealth law was to confine industrial troubles to the locality in which they were pro moted, but in reality the opposite re sult has been achieved. Practically the whole of the unions in Australia have federated, and being federal bodies they claim a right to have their claims heard by the Common,, _alth Co'urt. There has never yet bean given a clear definition of what is 3n inte;' State dispute, and what is not. But the unions gain access to the court by pretending that the workers through out the country are on the verge of in dustrial rebellion. The States have their industrial tribunals. They fune- tion in their own-way, and are eternally in co...
