DIAMOND CREEK v. ELTHAM [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 27 July 1923
DiAMOND CREEK v. ELTHAM Expecting a good game of foot ball a fairly large crowd were pre sent last Saturday when Eltham visited the Creek. They were sore ly disappointed, however, for good football was very scarce-too much on the ball. The Creek oval (spoken of by visitors as one of the best in Victoria) was in perfect or der for football. Umpire Pitchers was good but his decisions were at times puzzling, due no doubt to the many different styles of jerseys, etc., worn by some of the players and the colors were about the same, but that was not his fault. After a good friendly game the Creek ran out winners. The scores were at the final : Creek, 5 goals 11 behinds to Eltham, 2 goals 7 behinds. For the winners Herbert Bros and T. Huntly were most prominent. Others in the limelight were E. Brown, A. Whicker, and 'Dick Wright. Eltham were served best by Downey, West, Noble, LeBrocq, Jarrold. Thanks are due to Mrs. Hawke and Mrs. Ezra Wilson for supplying coffee, etc. Heidelberg beat Tem...
GREENSBOROUGH V HURSTBRIDGE. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 27 July 1923
GREENSBOROUGH V HURSTBRIDGE. Although not having much bearing on premiership honors as far as Hurst bridge was concerned, this match was eagerly looked forward to by, sup porters of the visitors, and a large con tingent journeyed to Greensborough on Saturday.. When these teams met previously the result of the match was in doubt right up to the final bell, and local enthusiasts still proclaim it the best.game ever played in Hurstbridge. Favored by a strong wind, the home team took up the attack, but the visitors fought desperately and kept' them off for some time. The Greens borough skipper then concentrated his team's efforts to the western wing, and two goals and two behinds fol lowed in quick succession. In the term, Hurstbridge went off with a great dash, and gave the home team's defenders a busy time, attack' after attack being repelled. R. McMillan opened the scoring account for Hurst bridge from a mark in front, and Allan Verso from a beautiful kick followed with another six p...
FOOTBALL REPORTS (TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 27 July 1923
FOOTBALL REPORTS (TO THE EDITOI.) Your correspondent's name taken in conjunction with the strain of the report immediately suggests to the reader that he is a supporter of Dia mond Creek. It has has been stat ed that the ground was, as usual, in good order. Doubtless this refers to the portions of the playing area which were several inches under water. Evidently the referdnce to " visiting roadside pugs " was oc casioned by a 'minor disturbance which occurrer outside the boundry line. Most of the people who were present are in full possession of the facts of this incident, so it is not necessary to go into, explanations. The umpire was critised by your correspondent in several instances, both with regard to his decisions and for his lack of decisions. It seems bad luck for a team which objected to the umpire appointed by the V.J.F.A., and which asked for another man, to fall out with the pew appointee. No team was more surprised than the Greensborough team to find that a local man w...

Correspondence. A QUESTION FOR MR. MATTHEWS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 27 July 1923
Correspondence. A QUESTION FOR MR. MATTHEWS. TO THE EDITOR OF TEE ADVERTISER. Sir.- Some time ago, on the motion of Cr. White, all work on the: Cherry Tree Road was blocked for a time. A deputation of protest from the Panton Hill Progress Association wasinform ed by the President that this action resulted from a disagreement with Cr. Hewitt's conduct in putting his duty to the ratepayers first. The ratepayers of Panton Hill would like to know from Mr Matthews:- If elected, will be put his duty to the ratepayers first? Or, will he subordinate that duty to other considerations; and, if he finds a councillor who does put his duty to the ratepayers first, will he single out an important road in that councillor's district and block a 1 work on it? Yours &c, DAVID RODGER, President, Panton Hill Progress Association.

MYSTERY MICROBE OF DEATH A NEW DISEASE THAT IS PUZZLING DOCTORS. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 27 July 1923
WYSTERY MT ICROBE OF DEATH: ---'5---- A NEW DISEASE TIHAT IS PUZZLING DOCTORS. Medical men, r-3 less than ordinary people, are mysti~fed by the appear ance of a new "pestilence that walk eth in darkness." No one knows where it came r.z-_ and it selects its victims from among those of either sex and any age with absolute impartiality. It may not be as deadly as some other infections, but it is an awe some thing which comes like a whiff of poison gas, swiftly and cunningly robbing its victim first of his five senses, and later, it may be, of his life. To this strange disease people have unfortunately given the name of "'sleeping sickness," just as they ap plied to every form of nervous ail ment engendered by the war the term "shell-shock." It is certainly not that real and infinitely more deadly scourge, the Isleeping sickness of Uganda, in the production of which that terror of East Africa, the tse tse fly, is the active agent. It is an abuse of language to apply the term "sleep?f" t...

NORTH RIDING FINANCES (TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 27 July 1923
NORTH RIDING FINANCES (TO THE EDITOR.) Sir,-Mr. F. Thompson boldly ac cuses me of making "statements which are not correct, and conse quently misleading to the ratepayers outside the Kinglake district," then proceeded to prove his case by mis quoting my letter. He accuses me of saying "the lion's share of the revenue was spent in Kinglake." If he reads my letter again he will find that what I did say, was, "that the lion's share of the revenue was spent in Kinglake and district," and the figures show this to be correct. Statements which are correct can not be "misleading." In regard to the riding overdraft, he says the amount is £800 and not £1200, as stated by me. Now surely Mr. Thompson must know that such balances fluctuate from day to day. The amount stated in my letter was both official and correct at the date of writing. Mr. Thompson will see that he is in the wrong and that he owes me an apology in the matter. In regard to the cry of mud from Kinglake, at the present time,- i...

Correspondence. KING LAKE ROADS (To the Editor) Sir,-I was amused when I read "Anti-Borrower's " letter in your issue of last week.

If not he should take a trip and see them, and then perhaps he will apologise to the electors. He is evidently trying to hoodwink them.-Yours, etc., SAKER BONA
Wallan East. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 3 August 1923
Wallan East, The Wandong Nigger Minstrels made their second bow to the public on Friday evening, when they pro vided an excellent entertainment in the Upper Plenty Hall. The enter tainment was on a 50-50 basis with the Hall Committee, but the latter generously gave their portion of the proceeds to a distressed family at Wallan, whose position was in ur gent need of relief. There was a good attendance, though not as large as the merits of the pro gramme demanded. Nevertheless the hall was filled. The. programme revived memories of forty years ago, when minstrel troupes were to be seen in nearly every township. The songs featured on Friday night were those of that period or when the performers were boys. The old negro melodies were well sung by the various performers and most ap preciated by the audience. The corner men, Messrs Brown and Mar-. shall' (Bones) and Messrs Shiels and C. Marshall (Tambos) caused roars of laughter with their sallies with the interlocutor, Mr. Thomas, and wi...
