Diamond Creek. LUCK. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 21 July 1922
Diamond Creek. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT). Some people are born lucky, and by all accounts Mr Whittaker, our local stationmaster, is one of the fe.v. A week or.two ago he .visited a show in the local hall, and'asthe eevening was wet he brought his umbrella with him, but on leaving for home it could not be found, and as he is a man of very few. words and believes in the maximrn •' Silence is golden," he said nothing. 4 A few mornings ago it was very wet, and a number of. passengers going to town left their umbrellas atthe station, and as he thought he had seen one of them heexamined it and found that it was the one he lost in the hall. He put it on one side thinking that the culprit would inquire for it,. but he " must have smelt a rat,' as no one up to the present time has asked for it. Talk about luck ! ACCIDENTS. Jack Gilding had a very narrow escape from a serious accident on Sunday morning. He had been exer- &nbsp; cising his pony, and on going through his gate it caught h...

FOOTBALL. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 21 July 1922
FOOTBALL. Eltham players are egdrly looking forward to' the semi final match to morrow. More than one supporter of opposing teams in surrounding 'di-' tricts has been heard alluding to .Eltham as a " rung-in-team.". Ihe liiles ." O'-wad. some power the giftie gie us, To see ourselves as ithees see us--" seem remarkably applicable to those who are afraid that some of their own players might have their playingquali tications questioned, anid stitl :let their tongues Wag freely. The secretary of the .Eltham 'Club (Oir F. Hall) in forms me that the boys are adopting for the maxim : "Fair. play is bonnie play," and if they follow the meaning of that excellent - rule the match shbould be worth a visit.
SHIRE ELECTIONS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 21 July 1922
SHIRE ELECTIONS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. SIR,-Whether Cr Bradbury said he would or would not agatin contest the seat from which he is retiring is immaterial. He may or may notbe just biding his time in the hope that no one else will nominate. In that case, of course, he might feel in clined to nominate at the last minute. Rarepsyers should be up and doing and not allow themselves to he caught napping. This, by virtue of its climate, fertility, beauty, and proximity to Melbourne should he one of the most go-a-head shires in the State, but in reality it is one of the most ,unprogressive. Instead of welcoming new craners they are warned offs by excessively high valuations and an extortionate ra:e, while the roads or ruts are still in a n'rct primitive state. How the money extracted from ratepayers' pockets is spent the un iniated are at a loss to understand; . Has Cr Brailbury ever shown a live interest in the welfare of this or any other part of the Shire ? He was partly, if ...

DEVELOPMENTAL ROAD. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADNERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 28 July 1922
IDEVELOPMENTAL ROAD. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADNERTIBER. Sir.-I regret trespassing on your space once again, but the statements made by Cr. Hewitt in your last issue are so misleading that duty compels me to deny them. Whether intentional or not, they should never have been written by one who holds his position. He knows that I am out for the easiest and best grade to Cottle's Bridge. so need not seek to damage me by inferring that I am desirous of benefiting the Whit. tlesea line. For years I have advocated Hursthridge to those who travel with their produce, and although ratepayers returned Cr Hewitt in preference to myself, still I challenge anyone to deny that I always was solicitous for the welfare of the Eltham Shire. If Cr Hewitt would confine himself to the merits of the two proposed routes I am of opinion that those who know the dis trict best will bear out what I state, that No. 2 route is the best for the greatest number. This is the route listed by the north riding members f...

Correspondence. COUNCIL MATTERS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 28 July 1922
Correspondence. COUNCIL MATTERS. TO rTH EDITOR OF THE ADVERTIBER. Sir,-I read with surprise the letter in the last week's issue of your paper, which was signed " south Riding." As adisinterested party, I consider the attack, if if can be termed so, unfair. Certainly a largeamonnt of money was expended on" Tilley's road, but the amount was not excessive,-and per haps if " South Riding" was. to visit that thoroughfare he would be surprised at the number of ratepayers it serves. Cr Brad bury, in my opinion, has discharged his duties as a councillor in an able and metho dical manner. Being a business man and well versed in all matters concerning finance, he ably fills a position, which the majority of the ratepayers elected him to fill, and if I am not mistaken will elect him to again fill, no matter what other candidates present themselves. The question, ' has Cr. Brad bury ever shown a live interest in the welfare of this or any other part of--the sbiret" is easily answered by reading...

TIMBER CARTERS. TO TEE EDITOR OF THE. ADVERTISER Smr,-Why have. other .timber carters been stopped on the roads ,and one man left to carry on cutting it. up: in the very worst way? TheKinglake East road. for instance, on- which £2zo has just been spent, and is now in a shocking state, impassable to anyone but this man with his six-hcrse team. Are not the settlers in this district: en, titled to any consideration, being all turned down for this, sawmiller who has made the road so bad that he will very soon not be able to get over it himself, 'so you can imagine whit hope the residents- have. , We looked on . this grant of zoo as a great boon to the district, but now we are ten times worse off Why did not the counsil act at the last meeting, as it is beyond all understanding why such a thing should be allowed when a word from the council could have- stopped it.- Yours, etc., LIVING IN HOPEF
WHITTLESEA SHIRE AFFAIRS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 28 July 1922
WHITTLESEA SHIRE AFFAIRS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. Sma.-Your issue of the 2zst inst was unusually interesting, inasmuch as he Whittlesea. Shire afflirs were once more in the limelight by a scribe who designated himself "Ratepayer.' There is very little bluff about the councils business. Certainly a reso lution early in the year was passed that ratepayers would be summoned if their rates were not paid. -It had a very" good effect, and any that are not paid now are carrying a penalty of 6- pes cent interest. " Ratepayer " forgets that councillors.act purely in an hon orary capacity, and do theirbest for the advancement of the shire; Cer tainly we are not as fortunate as the shire of Rosedale, who generally have all their rates collected, by due date, and if ratepayers prefer to pay a penalty it is not the councillors. or their officers' fault. To summon is not always advisable, very often costly and vexatious. The £80oo mentioned certainly would include arrears-some that shoul...
RATING M.M.B. WORKS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 28 July 1922
RATING M.M.B. WORKS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER SIR,-The suggestion of ylpiir cor respondent "Ratepayer" that the councils call public meetings in each riding to support our energetic mem ber's effort to have the Metropolitan Board of Works'rated is an excellent one, and I would suggest further that Progress Associations and other repre sentative bodies throughout the shires should take up the matter at once and pass resolutions congratulating our member, and thus show him that we appreciate his action, and show Parlia ment when the bill is brought in that Mr. Everard has the whole-souled support of his constituents in seeking to have this iniquitous law wiped from the statute book. Must the develop: ment of the shires be kept back and the progress of the Whittlesea railway be hindered because much of the best land in the, shire is monopolised for the benefit of the people of Melbourne, and not a penny is paid for the privi lege. Trusting that at the next council meeting the ab...
PROPOSED RIFLE CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 28 July 1922
PROPOSED RIFLE CLUB. Mr Ba·sil J. Hall writes as follws: It has been suggested to the Returned Soldiers Sub-branch FPanton Hill, that they should found or revive a rifle club in the district. I understand that such a. formationwasin existence before the war; and that a site is available at Queenstown or Upper Diamond Creek. The Defence Department have sent me particulars of 'formation together with the concession, customary in these cases, and if sufficent members of public show a desire to com mence such a club, there is no reason why preliminary arrangements should not be started. To this end a public meeting will be held in the Panton Hill Hall at 8 p.m. on Wednesday August 2, to which all over the age of 16 are invited.

ROUTES CRITICISED. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 28 July 1922
ROUTES CRITICISED. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. Sir,-In your last issue Cr Hewitt makes the ridiculous assertion that Mr Mann's route will not increase the value of the pro perties in the district a penny ; and this, he adds, is his main argument against it. This A is absurd, as any improvements increase the value of property, none so much as good roads from the land to the nearest railway station, thus enabline the produce grown on - the land to be transported at the cheapest possible cost. The route advocated by Mr Mann, and supported by nearly all the resi dents of Arthur's Creek, Strathewen and Streamville. as was proved by public meeting at Strathewen. called by the engineer. and also by petition, will serve the three dis tricts named, and bring the hundreds of tons of produce already grown there to the nearest station, which is Hurstbridge- At present, owing to the exceptionally bad state of the road to flursthridge, and the bad grade in places, this is impracticable, and ...
