REJECTION OF TRAMWAY DRAFT BILL. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 24 January 1914

REJECTION OF TRAMWAY DRAFT BILL. To tho Editor. Sir,—It was with a great deal of sur-1 prise that I and many other residents of | Preston learned that the Northcoto council had rejected the Draft Bill for the prososed St. George's Road Tram, after it had been carried by good major ities in the two other councils interested in the scheme. Hut when we look back and consider the attitude of the North cote council on other matters concerning the welfare of Preston, then the blow is not so bad. Cr. Tharratt and his brother councillors who voted against the Bill need scarcely refer to Brunswick street ; us sleepy hollow when they have nroved that they are veritable Kip Van Winkles by their action, and that they desire the Town of Northcote, with High street as its centre, to become their forest where they can sleep and dream unmolested by any outside influences.
