Discussions at the Council. MfORE LIGHT WANTED. F. W. Stewart and others wrote ask ing for an extension of the electric light to Fulham road, and the Public Works Committee, of which Cr Ball is chair man, recommended that the work be car ried out when money is available from the electric light undertaking. Cr May wanted to know why the Pub lic Works Committee had dealt with the matter when it concerned the electric light committee. Cr Ball said that no funds are used by the lighting committee. to pay for ex tensions, as the gas and light are two separate concerns and must not exceed the estimates. There was an understand ing that £100 was Fairfield's share. Cr May proposed that the matter be referred to the electric light committee. Seconded by Cr Pitcher. Cr White considered it a kind of cen sure. The matter came before the P.W.C. and was dealt with in a proper way.

ABOUT A MOTOR CAR. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough, Eltham and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 22 September 1917

ABOUT A MOTOR CAR. The Public Works Committee recom mended that a Ford car be purchased for the engineer for £195, and Mr Clinton to put in writing his terms for garaging the car. Or IHannah asked why the £rumble car was not advocated. Cr Ball-Because the Ford duplicates are more easily procured. Cr May understeod that the engineer favored the Trumble car, as also did the councillors who saw it. Why the change, He would like to know more about the comparative cost. Or Rank said they all knew what the Ford car could do, its economy in run ning, and replacing parts. The Metro politan Board gets good results from the Ford cars.

A MUSICAL TREAT. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough, Eltham and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 22 September 1917

A MUSICAL TREAT. One of the finest treats ever given to the Fairfield people in the way of sacred music whs supplied by the Baptist church choir the other evening in their render ing of the sacred cantata "Daniel." It was magnificent. Every part was per fectly rendered, and the effect most pleasing. The church was packed, and the audience broke out again and again in unrestrained applause, and encored several of the solo items. The Rev. J. Worboys presided, and lucidly and brieflyintroduced the several sections. The choir had been augmented though in itself a good one, the conductor, Mr Alf. Smith, beine an expert, and the secretary, Mr H. C. Bell, painstaking and thorough.. This church is fortunate in possessing two such fine officers in connection with the choir, and is also to be congratulated on its joint organists, Mrs A. Higgins and Mrs H. C. Fullard. In the rendering of the cantata Mrs Ful lard presided at the organ and Mrs HIig gins at the piano. Scott's orchestra as an acco...

TOPICS OF THE WEEK. MOTOR CAR ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough, Eltham and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 22 September 1917

Che Dews. PUBLISED EVERY SATURDAY MORNING SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 22. TOPICS OF THE WEEK. MOTOR CAR ACCIDENT. A motor car accident occurred on the Heidelberg road, at Ivanhoe, on Tuesday evening. Dr Talbot, of Clifton Hill, with his wife and daughter, were motor ing from Heidelberg, and when between St James' church and Station street a small dog got in the way of the car, and the doctor, instead of running over the animal, tried to dodge it, and in doing so caused the car to skid and run bn to the metal being placed on the piece of land taken over by the shire council at the corner of Heidelberg and Waterdale roads. The car turned completely over, burying the inmates underneath. In less than a minute willing hands had righted the car, when it was found that the doc tor had escaped without a scratch, the daughter with a slight cut on the fore head, and Mrs Talbot with a severe cut above the eye. She was- taken to I)r. Roche's, near by, and attended to by Dr. Costello, and in a short tim...

BOWLS. IVANHOE RECREATION ASSOCIATION. OPENING DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough, Eltham and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 29 September 1917

BOWLS. IVANHOE RECREATION ASSO CIATION, OPENING IDAY. Notes by Sir Francis. This afternoon, if the weatfiher prove aus picious, there should be a record gathering on the Association's grounds, as MIr A. H. Scott, the President, has issued a large number of invitations to the members and friends. To-day there will be only the main entrance gate open for members and guests. Mr W. R. Barstow posted last Saturday the 16 players to represent the Bowling Club.in "A" Pennant, and Ftwo teams of 12 players for "A C" and "BC" Pennant teams respectfully, I suppose no selection ever pleased everybody, but I think he has made a very judicious list. It now only requires loyalty on the parts of the mem bers to assuro a successful season. The "A" team includes-Cr. Bryant, MIessrs Barstow, Burrell, Gay, Kcllock, Maggs, Monson, Oakes, Prescott, Rendle, Sharwood, Shaw, Scott, Sloan, A. Walker, F. Walker. The team is practically the same.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. A GRIEVANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough, Eltham and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 29 September 1917

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. A GRIEVANCE. Sir,-Permit me to voice the grie vances of quite a number of househol ders re cattle and horses grazing on va cant blocks of ground and walking along footpaths in Green-street and its vicin ity. The shire engineer has modelled a road with specially wide paths. These beautiful paths are impregnated with hoofs in places. Ratepayers are request ed to, and must pay for this road and path making. It has been suggested that an avenue of ornamental trees be planted on the paths. This would be a cruel waste in these strenuous times, out side the fact that cows would quickly consume the plants or destroy them. Why are these quadrupeds at large ? Is the ranger asleep? Is it fair to ask ratepayers to pay for these paths and cows to disfigure them ? It is bad enough to put up with mud, but cow droppings are not conducive to good company when carted per boot to church. One modestly asks: Who owns this road-cows or councillors ?-Yours, &c., NOTA BENE.

MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS. Sir,--"Honest Toiler" is still going strong, having recovered his second wind; 'he is, however, a little wide in stating "forces were organi.ed to. give him a good drcbbi~ng.: "Honest Toiler" is rather flattering to himself, as the forces were organised to secure Mr Pit coher's return against all comners. .We were certainly led to believe by your cor respondent that Mr Pitcher was not go ing to have it all his own way. "Time will tell," quothhe. Time has told, and will tell again. I could hardly seek nomination myself after promising sup port to NIr Pitcher. "'lonest Toiler" may think that would be playing the game; I don't. Suffice it to say I have never sought nomination yet.

SHIRE COUNCIL AFFAIRS. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough, Eltham and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 29 September 1917

SHIRE COUNCIL AFFAIRS. Sir,-Truly the ways of the Heidel berg shire council are passing strange; that is to say they appear strange as they are reported in your issue of the 22nd. Their strangeness seems to be apparent from the peculiar attitude taken by them towards the proposition for the short ex tension of the electric light at Fulham road, the cost being estimated at £14, and would bring in an immediate return. Surely it would have been possible to get a grant from some other fund as a loan to the electric light committee for such a time as would be required for it to be repaid from the revenue derived from the eight or= ten customers who would be benefited by the extension. But, no, by an extraordinary exercise of red tape tihe proposition was downed and damned by the sledge hammer of the public works committee in defiance or derision of the electric light committee. It is interest ing to note the figures on the.division, r~luns o Muse v u.r u agj~nanvl anu JV~mo~ UL us would ...

DIAMOND CREEK. VISIT' OF LADY STANLEY. The bazaar in connection with St. John's Church of England accounted for the town being'en etee on Satur day afternooni last, coupled with the visit of Lady Stanley. The bazaar was held in the hall, which was nicely decorated, and contained gifts of farm produce, painting, works of art, needlework, and a great display of cooking. The attendance was large, the sales good, and the whole affair a great success. The Rev Stanley Wells (vicar), in introducing Lady Stanley, said that fifty years ago.the foundation of St. John's Church was well and truly laid,and in celebrating their jubilee it was fitting that they should hold a fdte to raise funds to improve the church so that they could go for ward for another fifty years. Their honor board bore 78 names, of which they were proud, and a tower will be erected to honor them The stallholders and their assistants had been working assiduously night and day, and he hoped to see their ef forts crowned with...
