COTTLE'S GULLY—CHAD'S CREEK ROAD. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 28 July 1922
COTTLE'S GULLY - CHAD'S CREEK ROAD. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISEB. Sir,--In your last issue Mr Mann says: '*True it is that Mr Hewitt, accompanied by two other gentlemen, attended at that meet ing, and asked that it (the £480 of soldiers' money spent on the Bowden spur) be spent on (1st) Bald Hill road, (2nd), bridge at Queenstown ; and failing either of these that a portion of the grant should go to the Memorial park, which had already been considered for a share (see "Advertiser," April 18, 1919). Note. Sir, that Mr Munn Pays, evidently by. way of bluff-he still taeats the ratepayers as children-see "Ad vertiser," April 18, 1919. Well, let any ratepayer see "Advertiser," April 18, 1919, and this is what he will find:--d r Hewittadvocated that 'a portion of the grant should go towards the Memo rlal park at Kangaroo Ground, and the re mainder towards works that had been pro mised for years but had not been carried out for want of funds," and again, Mr Hew itt did not favor the pro...

Cottle's Gully-Chadd's u Creek Road. fa TO THE EDITOR Or TIR ADVERTISRBB. P THE ROUTE QUESTION. n Sir,-In your issue of the 14th inst. Cr w Hewitt appeared to he wondering-if it was tr Mr Mann's bad luck or the finger of Provi- to dence pointing a warning, etc. Keeping p these remarks in mind, and the public w opinion expressed in the "AdvWertiser" w lately, one might be pardoned for thinking li it is just possible Cr Hewitt will realise by p now that Providence is pointing more than of a warning finger at him. He did not read v aright, for when be made his famous 12 to cc ].statement of fact, "Providence'' surely tl winked and pointed thumbs up, and now ft who can say he will nct turn them down at the com;in elections. Let me make it quite clear here I grind no axe:for ex-Cr Mann b any more than 1 do for Cr Hewitt or any likely candidate for the council seat at the cnming elections. The Cottle's Gully Chadd's Creek road only does concern me, as it dloes Cr Hewitt and many ratepayer...
EYE-SORES. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 28 July 1922
EYE-SORES. In the midst of Eltham there are three shops, which are owned. by a man who, at onetime, was a power in: the district. These shops, which, I understand, were condemned by the council official, are still standing,, and an eyesore to true Elthamites. When one shop was erected there some time ago, the spirited youths in our town put wordrs on its doorway which. inti mated that a well-known vervim. oecu. pied the shop. How true this is It do not know, but this particular species: of'creeping animal would, no doubt. find congenial quarters :there: The shop is at present unoccupied, which, makes one shake his head and think. that there is no doubt about the mat ter. These shops deserve a speedy end, and I am not alone in the hope that the health authorities will move in the matter, and these eyesores disap pear from our beautiful locality.
