Correspondence. NORTH RIDING AFFAIRS. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 22 June 1923
Correspondence. NORTH RIDING AFFAIRS. Sir,-In reply to Cr. Hewitt allow me to state that Strathewen people, never did at any time oppose the abolition of the iniquitous railway rate, and none more strongly support the proposal at the present time. Of the bridges quoted by Cr. Hewitt as having been constructed by Whittlesea and Eltham Shires for the benefit of "that corner," Hutchison's bridge never existed under that or any other name. Mann's bridge is a private bridge, erected by Mann Bros. thetm. selves on their own property, and the other bridges are links between the two shires. Each bridge serves a portion of the Hurstbridge, Nutfield, Arthur's Creek, Hazel Glen, Strath ewen, and Streamville districts, and .enables about three hundred residents of both shires to patronise the Hurst bridge railway, and are the only access to Hurstbridge for over one hundred Eltham Shire ratepayers and residents. All except two bridges-Gumm's Bridge and Hurstbridge (which now seems fated to be in...

Crossing Crossings. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 22 June 1923
Crossing Crossings. The Railways Department deplore the level crossing accidents, more es pecially because they arise in every instance through carelessness on the part of some individual. Such care lessness is very often displayed by the driver of the vehicle or other means of transport. On Saturday, May 19, observers took up positions at a crossing three quarters of a mile on the Melbourne side of Mornington, at another, two and a quarter miles on the Melbourne side of Werribee, and at a third, a quarter of a mile on the eastern side of Dandenong. 453 motor cars, 11 bicycles and 187 horse drawn vehicles passed. Of these the drivers of 137 slowed down and 514 did not slow down. Of those who slowed down, Si looked both ways before crossing, 36 looked one way, while 20 looked to neither side. Of those who did not slow down, 85 looked both ways, 113 looked only one way, and 316 looked neither to right nor left. Altogether unly 166 out of 651 looked both w.,ys before crossing, 149 look...

ELTHAM. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 22 June 1923
ELTHAM. &nbsp; (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT) On Saturday evening last, the engine and one truck of a goods train was derailed at Eltham, during shunting. The engine was put back on the rails with some little difficulty, and the truck, with the aid of local volunteers, was also put back on Sunday. On Tuesday evening the 6q30 p.m. train from Princes Bridge crashed into the dead end. The wooden buffers, which mark the end of the track, were dis lodged, and portion of one was splin tered by the impact. Fortunately the train did not leave the track, and with the exception of minor shocks no one was inju-ed. The dead end is marked by a red light, but evidently the driver under estimated the distance, and.when seeing his danger he was too near the object to pull-up. The erection of three signs bearing the words, "Welcome to Eltham" will be carried out during the next few weeks. The points of erection will be (i) On the main road from Melbourne near Eltham Park. (2) On the main road faci...

Progress Association. The monthly meeting of the Burst bridge Progress and Fruitgrowers' Association was held on June 21, there being 13 members present, and Mr. C. J. Verso (president) in the in the chair. TRAIN SERVICE. Mr Zenner (stationmaster) informed the meeting that Mr Clapp (Railways Commissioner) would visit Hurstbridge on Wednesday, July 4. about. 12.30, and would be prepared to receive a deputation with reference to the time table. Mr J. J. ,Mills pointed out that there was no train arriving in Hurst bridge between 9.15 a.m and 3.30 p.m. It was a great disadvantage to fruitgrowers. If they could arrive about midday they could commence packing again, but at present it was too late to do anything but go home. He suggested a train arriving between 11.30 a.m. and 1 p.m When fruit growers had been to market a number of them could not catch the 8 a.m. train. Mr A. Ambler said the Diamond Creek people wanted a mid-day train as well as Hurstbridge. The wattle season is coming on,...
BOY ARTIST WITHOUT HANDS! [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 29 June 1923
BOY ARTIST WITHOUT HANDS I --4.-~--- dhat wo~iM you do if you were de prived of your bands ? It is easy to imagine the feeling of helpless despair which would seize most people. I have just met a handless boy, and he is one of the jolliest fellows imaginable. Tom Clack is his name. He can draw and paint pictures. with such: .skill, grasping the pen, pencil, or brush between the two stamps of his wrists, that at fourteen years of age he has won a London County Council art scholarship. The loss of his hands does not worry Tom Clack at all. He is one of the best types of the sporting boy. He does not merely talk about games; he plays them. He is a good man to have on your side at cricket or football. At swim ming and boxing he can hold his own and you won'" ~t him lagging be hind you on a cycling run, although he can only ride with his arms press ed on the handle-bars. Above all, he is a humorist. He likes drawing portraits and carica tures of his brother and sister, and to amuse them ...
CHINA'S GREAT CANAL. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 29 June 1923
CHINA'S GREAT CANAL. It is interesting to know that China's Grand Canal, at one time pne of the world's great engineering wonders, is to be put in order and used again as a trade route between the north and south. The parts now blocked with mud are to be excavated, and a million and a quarter pounds' are to be spent immediately. The work will be car ried out under the direction of Am erican engineers, and it is hoped that in a comparatively short period a section of one nundred miles will be made ready for navigation. This canal, the most famous in the world, was completed in 1350, and took six hundred years to construct. It utilizes stretches of .various rivers on its route, and, including these, is over two thousand miles long. The canal proper, however, is only about eight hundred miles in length, but, as an old English writer has said: "In point of magnitude our most ex tensive inland navigation in England can .no more be compared to the grand trunk that intersects China than a ...
MUSIC HATH CHARMS. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 29 June 1923
MUSIC HATH CHARMS. A horse attached to a greengrocer's cart recently collapsed in the road. A veterinary surgeon, hastily sum moned, sentenced the animal to death; but just as the execution of the prostrate animal was about to be performed a regimental' band of the Guards ronuded" the corner. Its stirring music galvanised the horse to life,; and it c~ai d wildly around, to the delight at the owner and all present--save thle slaughterer ! We all of us know how stimulating is the effect of the strains of a band Po the march. We see how the okd man straightens his back, and how the eye of the young man brightens. There are few of us who do not feel some chord within us sespond. The recruiting authorities, during the war knew full well the value of a regi mental band. Its atrain ettracted more recruits in a day than a poster did in a week. What a vista there is opened out for the profitable employment of Army bands in the piping times of peace ! Regimental bands will be ordered to the f...
THE Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser AND Diamond Creek Valley Advocate Published Every Friday Afternoon HURSTBRIDGE, JUNE 29, 1923. The Train Service. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 29 June 1923
THE lAXM= and ifitotlea $hir AND iatxta tt aTreet W1alleg tluoclae Published Ecery Friday Aftera?on HURSTBRIDGE, JUNE 29, 1923. The Train Service. TaH visit of Mr Clapp (Chairman of the Railways Commissioners) to the Hurstbridge district on Wednesday next is of great importance, as there are several matters which require attention. The questions of fares, improved service, electric trains from Eltham, and railway extension are all being discussed. The fact of no train arriving in Diamond Creek or Hurstbridge between 9.10 a.m and 3.30 p.m. is a serious disadvantage, and when the former mid-day train was taken off we then drew attention to the inconvenience which it would cause to the travelling public. The orchardists suffer a disadvantage on returning from market, as they can not all catch the 8 a.m. train from the city, and the afternoon train is too late for them to do much work when they return. The same thing applies to city and suburban people who desire to spend a day amidst t...

ELTHAM. -- e-- (FROM OUR COIRESPONDENT.) Mrs Donellan, an old resident of Research, passed away on Sunday evening after a short illness.

Progressive. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 29 June 1923
Progressive. Most enjoyable was the euchre party and dance held last evening under the auspices of the Hurstbridge Progress and Fruitgrowers' Association. when the attendance was very fair consider ing the amount of sickness there is in the district. Mr C. J. Verso (presi dent of the association) extended a welcome to everyone, and hoped by united efiorts that they would not only provide social enjoyment, but achieve something for the good of the district. H-le pointed out that the Railway De partment think a lot of progress asso ciations, and he would like to see every inhabitant become a member. The card tables were well pat ronised, while the onlookers had a warm time in front of a big fire on the stage. Ten games in an hour was stipulated for the cards, which seemed to pass away very quickly. Mr C. Dunk, assisted by Mr Bertrand, was in charge, and they put plenty of "punch" into it. The lady's prize was won by Mrs T. Spencer, and the gentleman's prize by \ir Dunk. Miss Verso sec...

Correspondence. KINGLAKE EAST ROADS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 29 June 1923
Correspondence. KINGLAKE EAST ROADS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER Sir,- In making this appeal through your columns, on behalf of the settlers at Kinglake East, and the long years of hardships they have gone through, is it any wonder that they are disheart ened with their lot. Some of these sett lers have been struggling along for the last 30 years in the hope that, their road would in time be in a fit state to cart their produce, but after all that time the state of their road is much worse than ever. During this winter and last this road is as bad as a road can possibly be, and help as far off an ever. How such a state of things can exist within 40 miles of Melbourne at the present time it is hard to imagine. Now this road consists of a soft loomy formation, altogether unfit for timber traffic in winter. The wheels sink right down and plough it up very deep and throw up great ridges, which, with our rainfall, makes the road into a regular quagmire, quite impossible for ordinary ...

Upper Plenty. Arbor Day was celebrated in the local State school on June 22, when a large number of trees were plant ed. The children afterwards went through a programme of games and .races. The local ladies regaled the children with a bountiful tea, and lollies and biscuits were provided by the schoolmaster - Mr W. Webb. Speeches relative to the value of tree planting were given by Mr R. E. McDougall (chairman of the school committee) and Mr Webb.
