Our Streets [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 8 August 1914
I ..... . . . . .. . i ; Our Streets i The state of the streets isalwaiyS ,a&lt; source ' of discission at the Council meetings, and if coun cillors' ideas were fully carried out it would require three times the municipal revenue to do the work. On Monday evening Cr Bell set the ball rolling by protesting against the way Highett-street was being attended to. He said it was being metalled in the centre, and the Fides left sloppy* He "also put in a wofd for Kent: and Ross streets, both of which where; he said, in a disgraceful state. Cr Street gave a somewhat alarming des cription of Victoria, Kent, Ross, and Highett streets, and said that there was no occasion to have Baths in Richmond while there was such large holes in the streets for children to swim in.

A.,)\vho is seeking re-election * for the Centre Ward, held.a meet ing of friends and supporters in his room at the Town Hall last' Thursday night, the room being crowded.

He did not in tend to make a policy speech, as this meeting was only to form a committee. In view of the fact that no opponent had as ye...
