A Reply to "Medicus" To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 9 December 1921
A Reply to ""Medicus" To the Editor. Sir,-Will you kindly permit me to reply to an article which recently ap peared in "The Standard," entitled "The Extremist." written by Medi cus, The article is a cunningly ar ranged attack-albeit a feeble one upon the Prohibitionists or the "Ex tremists," as Medicos chooses to call them, and there are three things which strike me concerning it. First:-Its broad tolerance. Yes, sir, it is extremely tolerant. So was the sparrow in whose nest the egg of the cuckoo was deposited. This common bird kept the egg warm. In due time, the alien egg was hatched. Day by day the new alien was nourished by its benevolent fos ter-parent. Bye and bye the lusty rascal bit off the head of its "tolera tor." Base ingratitudel -Nay Foolish .Tolerance. And the tolera tion of Medicgs is of, tihe sparrow type, for he. would nurture something ill the -lest of our community life that willt ultimately destroy those who keepl it alive. Unfortunately. many mistake tolerance f...

Will the Line Pay? [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 9 December 1921
Will the Line Pay? While there is rejoicing atRel Hill over the opening of the railway from Bittern, there is no echo of this re joicing in the Railway Department. It is, indeed, believed that the opera tion of the line on a daily service will result in a very heavy loss to the de partment, already burdened with the operation of many unprofitable lines. Of course, no official statement has so far been made on the point. That will come later. The line, ten milee in length, originally estimated to cost £44,000, has been constucted at ap proximately £73,000.. Between Mel bourne and Bittern there will always be considerable traffio, and.for many years the road traffle between Bittern and Flinders will be fed by the rail way. But between Bittern and Red Hill the traffic will be so light at-times as to be almost negligible. Only in 'the fruit eseason will a frequent ser. vice be at all'justified by results, it Is said, and experience has proved to responsible officials thatmuch fruit is r...

To the Editor. Sir,-The closing stagcs of the Tyabb-French Island match, at thlc Tyabb Oval last Saturday, resulted in a very exciting finish, which resulted in Tyabb winning the game by 22 runs.. However, anll unfortuniate and unforeseen incident resulted in the French Island captain (P. Davon) claiming the mnatch for his side by 8 runs. His conlplaint scei'ns justifiable Iunder tllCe circunmnstances, and it seenms doubtful whethlcr Tyabb will retain the natch. Tihe facts all favor the visitors being awarded the rnatch, and although the Tyabb captain (Dave Longmore) and several othler.playeis of- the Tyabb team were under a mnis understanding, it is certain that their action was not towards any ill-feeling being borne towards the visiting eleven, who are the best of "good sports." Several players of thile Tyabb toanna (including the writtr) detply rearet this unfortunate- inhappelning, so I whist to relate thie circunstances which eventuated - in :the - protest.

The Red Hill Railway RED HILL, December 2nd. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 9 December 1921
Tile Red Hill ailway (By Our Special Representative). RED HILL, Dccember 2nd. They came from the orchards on tile hills and valleys of Mornington Peninsula yesterday to witness tile official opening of the railway ex tension of 10 miles from Bittern to Red Hill. For nearly 40 years these settlers had been struggling for a line, and as the first passenger. train steamed .into the new station at the foot of the hills they saw the con snnunation of their hopes. It was a great day for the district. The small town enthusiast is the finest en titusiast of them all, and from Bit tern to Red Hill thler?,were" 1000 enthusiasts about .tle possibilities of the railway. They claimed that it would give a great impetus to the fruit-growing industry; that it would open tip virgin country. for settlers; that it would create another profit able and picturesque'tourist resort, and that it would lead to the ex pansion of the district generally. Invariably the residents .confessed that the construction...
