My Life in Africa (Continued) [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian — 7 October 1944

My Life in Africa By R.obert Eadie, O.BE. (Continued) Agriculture was encouraged on scientific lines and an experimental farm established. A special commis sion was appointed to encourage the breeding of merino sheep. Not much progress was made in this direction, for they preferred to farm with the native Afrikaner sheep. In the mean time there was perpetual trouble with the natives. They gave considerable trouble by stealing cattle from the farmers, and in many instances they destroyed homesteads and murdered those who occupied them. The ma rauders had unlimited territory where they could place themselves out of reach of retribution. It was unsafe for farmers to follow up these des peradoes unless a large party could be mustered. Even if this were done, then a rear attack might be made by another group, and the homes' and lives of the women and children de stroyed. They were exceedingly cun ning, thoroughly understood the art of veld fighting, and were an ever present menace to the...

Cannon Fore and Aft To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian — 7 October 1944

Cannon Fore and Aft To the Editor. Sir,-I would like to make a few comments on qouncillor Dawborn's zecent letters; not as a ratepayer bit as an onlooker for those who have to pay. I. Councillor Dawborn tells us we all benefit from tourists. ". That the council is expected to preserve the assets of the ratepayers. 3. The number of defaulting rate payers. Regarding the first, he seems to have forgotten all the workers in the timber industry, many of whom own their own houses. Also the people who have made their homes here. All are independent of tourists. We know the guest houses and shops benefit: but I think this solicitude for tourists is getting overdone when it is pro posed to spend the sum of t2000 on a comfort room, which, after all, is only in the interests of road transport services. Now let us look at ordinary rate payers--mostly working people who year after year pay a general rate for which many receive nothing in return. No decent side-walks, many none at all; and why? B...

Children See Wild Australia ENJOYABLE OUTING TO SANCTUARY. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian — 14 October 1944

Children See Wild Ausra'ia ENJOYABLE OUTING TO SANCTUARY. (By W. Massey, Healesville Shire Secretary) For several years the Sir Colin Mac Kenzie Sanctuary Committee of Man agement has been deeply indebted to the children of Healesville for the va rious efforts they have made to raise fund for the reserve.

Councillors in the Hereafter To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian — 14 October 1944

Councilors in the Hereafter To the Editor. Sir,---Cr. Dawborn has issued what is termed a "Rejoinder" to various letters which have appeared in "The Guardian." In this statement he gives a little information which had previ ously been sought by those who even tually have to foot the bill; but not very much. He is a public man of long experience, and has the honor of being elected to the highest position which Healesville can give to any man. That is only one of the rea sons why he should be quite frank when addressing ratepayers. It is only natural for those who have eventually to pay to expect something more than mere outlines or hints of proposals. It might be useful (if not spectacu lar) for the president of the shire to call occasional meetings, and at op portune times, so that schedules and costs of proposed works may be sub mitted and explained. The same ap plies to the Water Trust. It might even b'ring home to the members an apprecialon of the fact that all of the brains of t...

This 1a the amount of the original pro posal; and as a protest against the scheme, and the manner in. which the ktiness of the trust was being con ducted, I resigned. Subsequently va rlous additional proposals were ap proved, increasing the amount to be 9pended to approximately £43,000. eAt a special meeting of the trust eld o October 4, a d?eme involv ig an estimated expepditure of 411,000 was adopted.

Fair Enough To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian — 14 October 1944

Fair Enough To the Editor. Sir,-The reply by Cr. Dawborn last week should be sufficient to allay any doubt in the minds of ratepayers as to current shire matters. To my mind, he gave a fair and clear explanation in a small space. He has been very patient of all the questioning he has been subjected to. The majority of members of the Water Trust had suf ficient confidence in him to re-elect him as chairman, which Is tribute enough in itself. Cr. Dawborn has given years of public service to Healesville. His letters are free from personal abuse. Abuse is no argu mont. Healesville has the services of a certificated water trust engineer of highest repute. If his advice is un acceptable to a small minority, whose fault is that? There are always some who are "agin the government."- Yours, etc., "RATEPAYER FOR TWENTY YEARS." oHealesville, 12/1'1/14.

Healesville Hath Cha[?] [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian — 14 October 1944

Healesville Hah Cha -4---- Dear people, this Healesvill"'s a: tiful sight, Its hills and its gullies a tire delight, The rivers and lake and the u so tall; But the folks take no pride in township at all. There's a rubbish tip stands you enter the town, Where old motor bodies are rust brown; It is one of the dirtiest spots seen, Beside which a blackfellar's would look clean. Of course they are proud of water supply, But on very hot days it is aptt dry; So in case you get thirsty and get a drop, You fill all available bottles got. Now they're going to build room, I'm told, For tourists whose values is pr as gold; For the unfortunate ratepayer foot the bill, No one worries about them, value is nil. Near the railway so smart the queer looking plot, It reminds you of Barnum, hell or not! It blocks half the roadway; with fence around, Perhaps it was meant as a stray pound. Or if it were hollow it would n fish pool, There's no doubt its fine for a two-up school. Those responsible for it I ...

Women in Local Councils "SHOULD BE ENCOURAGED," HEALESVILLE DELEGATE TELLS A.W.N.L. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian — 14 October 1944

Women in Local Councils "SHOULD BE ENCOURAGED," HEALESVILLE DELEGATE TELLS A.W.N.L. At the annual conference of the Australian Women's National ILeague in Melbourne this week, Cr. M. Mur ray Murton, Healesville delegate, moved that the standing of women for shire honors should be fostered and encouraged, and that the A.W. N.L. should warmly support such can didates, if suitable. `Cr. Murton said that the local council should not be regarded as' a sphere reserved for men. Cr. Nellie Ibbott (last year's mayor of I-Ieidelberg) said that municipal work would be on a higher scale if more women were included. This work came closer to the people than any other public service. However, women would have to be prepared to give service, and not expect to take it. Unless this spirit prevailed govern ing bodies might not be much better off. The motion was agreed to. . A proposal that the wife of a rate payer should be automatically enrolled for voting purposes was referred 'to the executive. Bli...

Surprise Promised To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian — 14 October 1944

Surprise Promised -4----- To the Editor. Sir,--Why does Cr. Dawborn fail to answer questions that are put to him? He must realise that as a councillor he is a servant of the ratepayers, and therefore should answer ratepayers' questions without side-tracking the issue. It is not f6r him to challenge or dictate to ratepayers, but for rate payers to challenge and dictate to him. He has failed to answer questions put to him not only by myself .ut by Cr. Cook (of whom he apparently avoids mention), Mr. Philippe, Mrs. Stainton, and various other corres pondents. Why? His confidence anent the outcome of the next 'general elections is mis placed. I can assure him that this im portant matter (requiring revision) is already well in hand; and if the de nouement should prove astonishing to him it will be by no means so to me or to the majority of Healesville rate payers.-Yours, etc., "I. M. VIGILANT." Healesville, ; /1) ' 14.

My Life in Africa (Continued) [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian — 14 October 1944

My Life in Africa By Robert Eadie, O.B.E. (Continued) From tinle to time laws were passel ameliorating the conditions of slaves. In 1817 the importation of slaves into the Colony was entirely prohibited, and although the emancipation of slaves had been spoken of before this date it was not until 1834 that an Impnoiial Act abolished slavery. There were then more than 30,000 slaves in the colony. As a result of the law prohibiting slavery, a great shortage of. labor threatened the colony, and the people looked to the Hottentots to supply it. In order to stop vagrancy and compel them to work, a law was passed which broke up the tribal sys tem, placed them under the colonial laws to have a fixed abode and obtain a pass should they want to move out of their district. Later on different missionary soc' eties sent their workers out to labor among the ' Hottentots 'and -Kaffirs. Their views toward the colored peo ple did riot coincide with those of thd officials and colonists, and much fric...
