NEWS AND NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 18 July 1885
NEWS AND NOTES. When Mr Stoneman left for his home trip it was with the understanding that he would have leave of absence for the remainder of his term from the Borough Council, which leave was obtained in due course. As Mr Stoneman did not anticipate being absent over a few months, he, ast the solicitation of several friends, agreed to sign a nomination paper before leaving, with the view of stand- ing for the position of councillor at the en- suing municipal election. We understand that the paper is now signed and ready for delivery to the returning officer at the proper time. Mr Stoneman has done so much for the Cliff individually and officially that there ought to be no doubt about his return. No citizen has taken a greater interest in the welfare of the borough than he has, and no man has had such potent influence in obtain- ing concessions from the Government. Before the advent of railways no one did so much to bruing the place into notice as Mr Stoneman in his tours through a...

Official Visit of Mr Levien The Hon. Mr Levien, paid a visit to the Cliffe on Saturday last, for the purpose of enquiring into local wants. &nbsp; &nbsp; He was met by the Town Clerk and after- &nbsp; wards interviewed by the councillors who drove him to Point Lonsdale to see the re- maining portion of the road which required to be formed and metalled. Mr Levien pro- mised to do what he could to obtain a grant towards the completion of the road, the cost of which is estimated at about £400, and will send a reply within a few days. The Council are anxious to proceed with the work at once and will do so if any assistance is promised. A visit was made to the new pier. The work so far has been pronounced very satis- factory, and about half of the piles have been driven. It was impressed upon Mr Levien that the work should be continued by supple- menting the balance of the unexpended vote sufficient to construct an additional section. This will be done if possible...
