OUR MELBOURNE LETTER. THOROUGH. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 21 April 1914

OUR MELBOURNE LETTER, i (From our own correspondent;. THOROUGH. Many years ago " thorough'' was i the watchword of an English states man with regard to his Irish policy, and the ward was construed to cover treatment of Irish malcontents that would have disgraced a Russian auto cracy. The same spirit would seem to animate the owners and drivers of automobiles in their dealings with the general public. That the motor car is a public convenience, no one can doubt but at the same time it has to be admitted that they are also pro ductive of great public inconvenience, and much unnecessary loss of life and injury. The supposed governing, body of the motorists, the Automobile Club admit this in a guarded fashion, but at the same time are pointing out that the thoughtless pedestrians who, when going about their ordinary business, get in the way of cars travelling through the streets at the rate of 20 to 40 miles an hour, are causing great pain and annoyance to motor drivers and owners.

ACTIVITY IN BUiLDING TRADE NEW". RESIDENCES AND EX TENSIVE ADDITIONS. INDICATION OF PROGRESS AND PROSPERITY. One of the best indications of the i stability and progressiveness of the town and district is the number of ' additions made, and buildings that are being erected. The pioneers have, : in many instances, discarded the home originally built, and have erected fine palatial residences which, it is in teresting to learn, rather surprised Mr | A. E. V. Eichardson M.A., the Super intendent of Agriculture, when he i visited the district in December last to jtfdge the farm competitions. The homes of the West "Wimmera farmers, Mr Richardson declared, were quite equal to the comfortable suburban houses of the well-to-do people of Melbourne. Mr John L. Barnes, of "Stawell'' Leahy Street, our >vell-knowu build er and contractor; has now his full staff of men employed on various contracts throughout the district and in Nhill.

Sib,—Now the winter has started, we ratepayers think it would be economy and equity for the rate payers, for our Lawloit Council, Kaniva, to give the Water Trust, caretaker notice that his services are not required for six months, as dams and wells are not required in winter, and in October the Water Trust could call for tenders for all the dams, wells, etc., which would be a great saving to the ratepayers. I see by your paper that at the Law loit Council meeting the caretaker applied for the position of Inspector of Nuisance, etc., to the council and district.
