MOTOR KILLER To the Editor of The Advertiser [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 14 September 1923
MOTOR KILLER To the Editor of The Advertiser Sir,-I saw something on Septem ber 4th, at 4.15 p.m., that made my heart ache, two beautiful ducks lying on the road crushed by a motor car. Perhaps the man who drove the car, did not intentionally do it, but it looked like the work of a man who knew how to drive, for one was killed by the near side wheel, and the other by the off. Possibly the driver was young and thoughtless, with not a bad heart at all and when the call came for volunteers, with heart wrung with sorrow at leaving home, wife and little ones, with a brave heart, offered his life and did his best for the Empire in time of need. The man who owned those ducks did that. He was not killed, but came back after years of service, poisoned by the enemies gas. His coughing at night, at times, is awful to hear. The doctor says, you must not work ; someday you will be brought home dead ; but he is up at 4 a.m. at times to take firewood to market ; a quiet, honest, hard-working man,-...
Correspondence. REDISTRIBUTION OF SEATS. To the Editor of The Advertiser [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 14 September 1923
Correspondence.:.- .... REDISTRIBUTION OF :SEATS. To the Editor of The Advertiser Sir,--The question of the redistri bution of seats is surely the most pressing of political matters. The startling feature is the very marked increase of electors in the Metropoli tan area, and the surprisingly lesson ed 'proportion of country electors. In 1905, after the present electorates 'were- defined;. the;' Metropolitan. elec tors. were 40 per cent. of the total, and the country electors were 60 per cent. (The special representation for the railways and public service then in force did not affect the pro-. portion). In 1910, after females were enrolled, Metropolitan electors were 46 per cent., and country elec tors 54 per cent. To-day, Metro politan electors are 54 per cent., and country 46 per cent. Compare; this with 1905. 1905-Metropolitan, 104;920, 40 per cent ; country, 162,165, 60 per cent. 1923--Metro politan, 475,232, 54 per cent ; coun try, 398,177, 46 per cent. That is the farmer is mo...

Rating M.M.W.B. Lands. MR. EVERARD'S RATING MEASURE. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 21 September 1923
Rating M.M.W.B. Lands. MR. EVERARD'S RATING MEASURE. The Bill which Mr. Everard, M.L.A., has introduced in the Legis lative Assembly to rate the lands of the Melbourne and Metropolitan Board of Works has been circulated. Unfortunately, owing to the recent political crisis and change of Minist ers, this measure, which is of import ance to the shires concerned, cannot, be brought forward in Parliament for several weeks. In the meantime the Bill should receive the active sup port of the councils and ratepayers in the Evelyn electorate, who should hold meetings and have petitions largely signed for presentation to Parliament showing the Legislature that the residents of the electorate are anxious that this measure should be made law. Mr. Everard has wise ly not aimed at accomplishing too much by his Bill. It is a short prac tical measure and strives to deal with both sides, not placing too heavy a burden on the Board, whilst it does justice to the shires concerned by having their revenu...
Correspondence. EXPLANATION. To the Editor of The Advertiser [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 21 September 1923
Correspondence. EXPLANATION. To the Editor of The Advertiser Sir,-Referring to the report of the Eltham Shire Council's monthly meeting in your issue of the 7th in stant, wherein it appears that Mr. Ralph, solictor, had informed the council that I had refused to trans fer to it certain lands the council re quired, the facts are that I promised the Railway Commissioners to trans fer to the Eltham Council certain portions of my property for a road adjoining the Montmorency Railway Station. I have fenced off that por tion and signed the necessary trans fer prepared by Mr. Ralph for the council. The balance of the land re ferred to by Mr. Ralph in your re port is a small portion of my pro perty that I have offered to certain adjoining owners to assist them in completing their contemplated forma tion of roads through their proper ties to the station as shown on a plan prepared by them. If they open their roads for the use of the public they can have my land, not other wise. So far I have...
Montmorency. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 21 September 1923
Montmorency. -_-.------ V`"-." On Saturday, September 8, the Montmorency State School concert committee repeated their concert in the Eltham hall. Slight alterations were made in the programme given in Greensborough on the 4th August, when the hall was packed. Eltham has previously had crowded houses;! but it would be impossible to surpass the house on Saturday evening. Every inch of the space was occupied and numbers lhad to be refused ad mission, their share of the concert being a peep through a window or the open door. Mr. Price again proved a most valuable chairman. He thanked the councillors and resi dents of Eltham for their kind pat ronage and promised that the resi dents of Montmorency would be pleased to reciprocate when the El tham folk needed their patronage. The action song by the junior school and Flower Song by the sen ior girls were much appreciated, and reflected great credit on Mrs. F. Mc Donald and Mrs. H. Rose for their skilful and untiring efforts. Their fine wor...
NORTH RIDING FINANCES. To the Editor of The Advertiser [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 21 September 1923
NORTH RIDING FINANCES. To the Editor of The Advertiser Sir,-About two months ago you published correspondence from me under the above heading There had been correspondence previous to mine, appearing in your valuable paper, " The Advertiser," from Cr. Hewitt and others, including " Rate payer " and " Anti-Borrower." Cr. Hewitt, in his letter, hoped someone would come forward in opposition to Cr. White to support him in his pro posal for an eighteen penny rate. He was supported in this by both " Ratepayer and " Anti-Borrower," especially by'the latter. My letter then appeared opposing the proposal and pointing out how we would be placed if we adopted an eighteen penny rate. I gave facts and figures to the nearest pound to support my contention that we could not work on such a proposal. Some weeks elapsed and then Cr. Hewitt is into print again, right on the eve of the election, making statements not quite reliable. One of his state ments was to the effect that my figures were as much...
