Freights and Fares. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 2 November 1923
Freigh-ts and .Fares. Mr. W. H.' Everard, M.L.A., speaking in the House on October 23, said :- , About six years ago, there was a great hue and cry throughout this country on account of the excessive fares and freights. The Govern ment decided to increase them by 71 per cent., and, as a result of that decision, .several. reputable.,members of this house lost their seats. Not withstanding that, we find that;, ,:in stead of the increasing stopping at 71 per cent., it has gone up to about 30 per cent. or 33 per cent. I see no reference in'the Budget to any contemplated reduction in freights and fares. If we do not bring these charges down to a minimum, our pro-: ducers will not be able to compete with those in other parts. of the world where cheap freights prevail. Our producers are not only taxed.by high freights on the railways, but by high freights on the ocean liners, and it is the duty of the Government to see that those freights are very con siderably reduced. In view of the moti...

Diamond Creek. FAREWELL TO MR. ANSON. (From Our Own Correspondent.) On Friday evening, October 26, the Diamond Creek hall was filled to its utmost capacity, when nearly all the residents met to bid farewell to Mr. Anson, the popular and earnest Head Teacher of the school, which position he has held for the past five years, and the large attendance of all sections of the community was an indication of the high esteem in which he was held. In recognition of his good work he has been pro moted to Kensington school. The chairman of the school committee (Mr. W. Cook) presided. When Mr. Anson arrived he was received with cheers. An apology was received from Mr. Wilson, who was too unwell to attend.

Correspondence. ELTHAM SANITATION. To the Editor of The Advertiser [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 2 November 1923
. iCdorrespondenc: -rI_ ELTHAM SANITATION. To the Editor of The Advertiser Sir,-I was glad to see by the last council report that the medical health officer is taking the initiative in compelling the: council tobdo some= thing in regard, to sanitation. 'Each meeting this subject has been brought up-at the. council- meeting, and we read in the. report that Cr. ~So-and-So says something must be done, and then a committee is ap pointed to consider ways' and means, and we never hear when 'that im portant committee has met. No doubt it is very awkward for- them to please all parties, for there. are .some. people .hene.who are.ý so -back ward in their ideas that they oppose .a sanitary: scheme. ..They:.go bald headed for the Government if they are not given' a good train service, and when the increased population demands modern methods of: living, they are found wanting in doing :their share. One: reason, no doubt, is the extra 6d or-1/ a:'eek for.ser vice, but if they are, not-prepared t...
KINOLAKE RAILWAY. GROUP SETTLEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 2 November 1923
KINGLAKE RAILWAY, FROM HURSTBRIDGE. GROUP SETTLEMENT. The-Railways Standing Committee recommended yesterday the exten sion of the Hurstbridge railway by way of Queenstown to Mitton's bridge, a distance of seven and three quarter miles, at an estimated cost of £100,000, conditionally on the Closer Settlement Board securing the neces sary legislative power to resume pri vately-held areas on the Kinglake tableland to. form, in conjunction with the available Crown lands, a group settlement of at least 200 to 250 holdings.. It is considered that the Kinglake district lends itself to this class of settlement provided suitable metal led roads are made to cart the pro duce to the railway, because of its nearness to the metropolis, the fair quality of the soil, the high annual rainfall, and the bracing climate. As soon as the necessary land has been obtained, steps will be taken by the board to make the best use of the timber growing on it in ' the shortest possible time, so that the holding...

Correspondence. HURSTBRIDGE PARK. To the Editor of The Advertiser [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 2 November 1923
Correspondence. IURSTBRIDGE PARK. To the'Editor of The Advertiser Sir,--I am glad to see that a move is to be made in connection with the park, and there are two or three mat ters I think would be of interest to those who attend the meeting next Thursday. No one seems to know how much was made out of the last sports, or how much is cost to run them. Although the balance-sheet was passed at last week's meeting no details were given out. As regards the sports, it seems that all of us in this district make a good day for pro fessional runners, in whom very few are interested. There are many who agree that if there were more events to interest local people and the charge made one shilling for ad mission it would be more satisfactory to everyone. The idea of a bazaar and queen carnival is a good one, and the spirit shown by the Girls' Club is to be commended.-Yours, &c., PARK-ITE.
