NOTES BY THE WAY [Newspaper Article] — The Essendon Gazette and Keilor, Bulla and Broadmeadows Reporter — 9 April 1914
NOTES BY THE WAY B " Oh-"ryer." The seiteiice of five years penal ser vitude passed by. the Chief Justice, of New South' Wales 'on a "motor hoc." who ran over a woman and left her on the road suffering from injuries which eventuated in her death, was not a whit too severe, and it is to be hoped will be laid duly to heart by the con victed man's imitators throughout the Commonwealth. Of course, the case mentioned was an exceptionally bad one-so much so that the accused was placed in the dock oni a charge of man slaughter. In condemning the reck less 'driving and disregard for the safety of pedestrians on the part of some motorists there is no need to get hysterical and tar all with the same brush, for there are not a few instances of drivers and owners of cars behav ing. in a most humane manner. after a casualty they were really not to blame for. But where a motorist is fined several times-for negligent driv ing and other, offences, the alternative of a monetary penalty should be wit...

SUPPORT THE LOCAL PAPER. [Newspaper Article] — The Essendon Gazette and Keilor, Bulla and Broadmeadows Reporter — 9 April 1914
SUPPORT THE LOCAL PAPER. The excellence of the newspaper (says "Texas Siftings") is one of the best evl; dences of the general prosperity of the town in which it is published. If the printing office of any town turns out a dirty, slovenly. ill-printed sheet, you can make up your mind that the matter in the paper is in keeping with the paper that represents them. Every copy of the local paper should be an advertising cir cular for the town. It should he bright, clean, and clearly printed, newsy and in teresting, even to an entire stranger, into whose hands it might fall. To enable the editor to get out such a paper he should be well supported-the people should sub scribe aild the merchants should advertise libetj.lly; for is not the paper the only link that binds them to the world in general, and keeps them from dropping into oblivion? Who ever hears of the town which has no local paper? The world has no knowledge of its existence; its inhabitants grope in darkness. and depend upon g...
