Correspondence. QUESTIONS FOR MR HALL. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 10 August 1923
Correspondence. QUESTIONS FOR MR HALL. (To the Editor.) Sir,-In your last issue the few persons who requested Mr. Hall to stand for the. North riding state that they were specially requested to nominate a candidate in place of Mr. Matthews. It would be interesting to know who " specially requested them," and why ? Cr. White is an experienced councillor-one who knows the North riding from A to Z. Moreover, the extreme southern end of the riding is entitled to a repre sentative. Cr. White has consistent ly advocated the claims of Panton Hill. In view of the financial posi tion of the riding and the disgrace ful state of Cherry Tree-road, I ask Mr. Hall if he will make the position worse by supporting those who ad vocate an immediate reduction of rates, and consequently have no money to do anything worth while on Cherry Tree or any other road and increase the debt, or will he fol low the splendid example of Cr. White in advocating :-1. That the revenue should be properly spent, good ro...

Arthur's Creek. A bright fine moonlight night and the memory of past enjoyable nights there, brought a very large crowd to the novelty night on July 28. People attended from the city, Queenstown, Kinglake and Strathewen as well as the majority of, the local residents. Motor buses, buggies, jinkers, motor bicycles, push bikes, and pony con veyed eager dancers, card players and onlookers to the hall. The Arthur's Creek hall is deservedly popular with dancers as it is a large one and the floor is always in excel lent condition for tripping the light fantastic. The well-known and popular musican, Mr. Leo Ryder, ably assisted by Mr. T. P. Murphy, provided the music, while Mr. W. Underwood proved an efficient M.C. Songs and recitations were provided by Miss Clayden and were highly ap preciated. The confetti battle was the source of wild excitement. Con fetti was lavishly thrown over every one, and the hall floor, cleared a few minutes before, presented the appearance of a field after a he...
Wonga Park. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 10 August 1923
Wonga Park. The weather for the last week or so has not been at all comfortable. Very little work in the orchards has been done. Good rain has fallen since May to the present time, to talling S. inches.

Any of Arthur's friends in the Eltham shire who would like to assist can do so by writ ing to Mr Fred Topping, the secret ary, Wonga Park...

Strathewen. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 10 August 1923
Strathewen, At a well-attended meeting of the residents of Strathewen recently a social club was formed for the pur pose of promoting entertainments and sociability. The convener, Mr. H. Hoare, who was elected to the chair, explained that he had called the meeting, in response to a sugges tion by Miss Rich. A social club was an essential need in the district -it was a progress association that catered exclusively for the social en joyment of the people, and though distinct from the Strathewen Pro gress Association, each would assist the other to hasten the progress of " Beautiful Strathewen," develop a spirit of comradeship and brighten the lives of the people. The following office-bearers were elected : President, Mr. H. Hoare ; vice-president, Miss Rich ; secretary and treasurer, Miss May Giddens. It was decided that the club meet -every week for social evenings and that business meetings be held monthly. On' the motion of the secretary and Miss M. Brain, it was decided that-the c...

Lilydale. FRUIT MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 10 August 1923
Lilydale. &nbsp; &nbsp; FRUIT MARKET. &nbsp; (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT) &nbsp; The second annual conference of the United Berry Growers' Association was held in the local Athenaeum Hall on Tuesday, 24th. July, the President (Mr C. E. Jones) being in the chair. Mr W. H. Everard, M.L.A., gave his usual forcible address. He quoted figures to show that the industry was &nbsp; apparently languishing, as before 1916 1917 more berry fruits were grown than &nbsp; are now grown. In times past prices were not conducive to the establish- ment of large areas. In 1916-17 there were 636,749 bushels of raspberries &nbsp; harvested. During the same period the strawberries gathered amounted to &nbsp; respectively 3,894,479 plants and 2,148,000, whereas currants showed a decrease from 41916 bushels to 36740. But growers had a magnificent market. at their own back doors which only re- quired exploiting. He personally ob- jected to the pract...

4,500 Miles of Sovereigns 600 MILES DUE FOR PAYMENT [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 17 August 1923
4,500 Miles of Sovereigns -4--- 600 MILES DUE FOR PAYMENT To back up her diggers in the fighting line, Australia raised about £500,000;000, :which is equal to 4,500 miles of golden sovereigns. Laid end on enld,:ýthis band'of gold would stretch, without a break, prac. `tically' from, Australia' to South Africa, and would' take 'a fast mail boat' about ten days, travelling day and night, to pass from beginning to end. When the boys were fighting in 1918 at the time the Seventh War Loan was raised, the Australian people, when the-Government ap pealed to them, poured a veritable stream of gold into the Nation's coffers. It was-a deluge of gold sent: to help the 300,000 hearts of gold who were- fighting the Empire's battles on the other side of the world. The Seventh. War Loan of £44,000,000, which--matures on Sep tember 15th next, represents about 600 miles of these sovereigns. Con siderably more than half the amount has already been converted, and the Government desire that the holders...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 17 August 1923
Sir,-On inquiripg-at the Shire Office I have been told that the North riding `estimates were so framed that if adhered to the riding should be out of debt at the end of the financial year. I have further learned that so far the estimates have not exceeded to any.appreciable extent,and the outstanding rates are quite sufficient to square accounts as between the ridings. This excellent position is due to the good sense of those councillors who resisted very strong pressure to incur expenditure. for which they had not provided. Mr Hall is going to reduce the rates as soon as accounts are squared That will be almost as soon as he takes his seat, and will not in any way be due to his assis tance. Now, whot I want to know is this: Does he propose to continue starv ing the roods as has been done necessarily during the past three years, or if not where does he intend getting the money ? His colleague (Cr Hewitt) is opposed to borrowing. Yet, to place the main Pan ton Hill road in order alon...
NOTABLE OMISSIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 17 August 1923
NOTABLE OMISSIONS; Sir,-In your last issue.ratepayers read a long list of benefits conferred on them through the initiative andwith the.sup-: port of Cr. White, but there were some notable omissions from his list-for in stance, he took no credit whatever for having moved or supported the raising of the rate to 2s 6d in the £. He also omit ted to take credit for the fact that not withstanding a 2s 6d the roads are'in a bad state, and the riding is in debt and hasfno money with. which to carry on ur gent work. There were. other omissions, but these will suffice to show that Cr. White's claim is somewhat one-sided, and not to be swallowed' without a grain of salt.-Yours, &c., SCEPTIC.
