ELTHAM. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 13 July 1923
ELTHAM. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT) The Railways Commissioners have taken an unusual stand in, intimat- ing that Montmorency is unsuitable as a name for the new station now in course of erection between Greens- borough and Eltham. Their ex- planation is that the name is too long, but surely there are other stations with longer titles. Perhaps &nbsp; the fact that the word is pronounced &nbsp; in four syllables is the chief objec- tion. This district is familiarly known as " Morency," which name &nbsp; would be a suitable one, as many of the residents, no doubt, woultd not like a complete change from a name which has been associated with the locality for years. On Saturday evening the Public Hall Committee held a very success ful poster ball. The weather con ditions were pleasant, and conse- quently the attendance was good. Miss Goldman supplied the music, and Messrs W. Noble and F. West were M.C.'s. A large number of persons attended in fancy dress. The dresses,...

WISE MEN SAY ----6-- Try and you may ; don't and you won't. Wasted opportunity is the cause of most failures. It's better to get licked than never to have put up a game fight. Don't think that anyone who does n't happen to agree with you is a fool. Unless we put au ideals into prac tice they are ne niore than empty dreams. Never be afraid of saying "I don't know." You cannot sell even a £1 note for 15/- without ave(vising. MBan,- :om_.nr now have two votes their own, and' their husband's. Evcrybody thinks that other people are sp-ading too much.

LIVES RISKED FOR CAMPHOR. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 20 July 1923
LIVES I~IStED FOR CAMPHOR. -4--- Practically all the camphor in the world comes from a single island, the island of Formosa, situated off the coast of China. It is said that an average cam phor tree, l2ft.. in circumference at its base, will yield enough camphor at present prices to bring its owner £1,500. But one .must net suppose tbat forests. Thy r e nhor laurel is but one of a number or trees which grow together. They grow -wild; in old days some as big a: 4Oft. in circum ference were found, but these soon fell to the axes of the wasteful. pio .neer camphor-gatherers, and now they must be sought in the jungles. Camphor-gathering is not a simple task. Apart from the labour of scouting for trees, cutting them down, and extracting the camphor, in many parts of Formosa the cam phor workers perform: their labours under armed guard. For the thick woods sometimes swarm with unseen but deadly headhunters. Even with the efficient protection supplied by the Japanese--who own the island,. ...
Montmorency. CHANGE OF NAME [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 20 July 1923
Montmorency. CHANGE OF NAME At the. local Progress Associa tion's meeting, held at St. Faith's Hall, on Saturday, 7th July (Mr. Honeyman in the chair), the ques tion of a name for the new station was raised. It was stated that the Railway Commissioner favored words with feiver letters than the name " Montmorency," which, it was understood, would be the title of the station. After discussion, the meeting decided to ask Mr. Clapp, if correctly reported, to re consider his decision, and allow the name " Montmorency " to be used. It was also decided that the book of rules with names of first officers, be printed at once ; also that names of foundation members be entered in the minute book. At the same hall on Wednesday, 11th inst., a meeting of the Mont morency Railway Station Trust was held, to discuss the proposal to change the name of the station. Although the weather was favorable and the meeting duly advertised, on ly 25 residents attended. The Chairman (Ex.-Cr. Price) stated that ...

The Chairman said the meeting was the outcome of the visit of Mr. Clapp - (Railway Commissioner), who had suggested that the best way to overcome the difficulty of an amended timetable was to have a meeting and arrive at a unanimous opinion, and then report to Mr. Clapp, who would send out an officer to interview the people. The chair man explained that so many people wanted a midday train to arrive in Hurstbridge, which would suit the fruitgrowers and the people visi...

Correspondence. TIMBER TRAFFIC ON ROADS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 20 July 1923
Correspondence. TIMBER TRAFFIC ON ROADS. TO THE BDITOR OF THE ADVERTIBER Sir,-In your last issue "Live and Let Live" asks if all the damage to the Kinglake East road has been done by the timber traffic? My answer is : Yes, every bit of it, as other loads of produce going over it have to be very small indeed to get through the sea of mud caused by that traffic. As I have mentioned before in your columns, this road is in a most awful state, quite beyond belief to anyone who has not been along it, and very dangerous also; side tracks and everywhere it is pos sible to go being treated alike. The settlers have had two winters of it now, and is it any wonder they want the timber traffic controlled, as it is impossible to carry on under such conditions. No doubt, as "Live and Let Live" says, one man has as good a right as another to a public road, but the abuse of that road is quite another matter, and the state of the road speaks for itself.-Yours, &c., Kinglake. THos. RUSSELL.
Lilydale, [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 20 July 1923
Lilydale, (r0ox OUR CORRESPONDENT). The erection of a new two-storied brick school at a cost of £4100 is nearing completion, and should be one of the landmarks of this district. This new schoo is practically due to the untiring effi.rts of our popular M.P. (Mr W. H. Everard). who has spared no trouble in bring this much needed improvement to a successful issue. The new grandstand on the sports oval is now well under way, and should prove a decided acquisition to all sports' lovers, Much dissatisfaction is caused by the alteration of the 5.25 p.m. up train till 6.20 p.m. A large depu tation waited on Mr. Clapp at the local railway station on his -ecent visit here, but they gained no satis faction to their request for an extra train at 5.25 p.m. The question of electrifying the Lilydale line was favorably impressed upon the Rail ways Commissioners, and next year ought to see this progressive step consummated. The work of laying the under ground telephone wire is in operation, and the ...
