BEMM RIVER. (ituoMi uUt OWN CoitESI'PO?DENT.) July 29. The late rains have opened the en trance to the lake and two fishing craft have come in, the Ruby and the Maria. Both crafts are running regularly to Ouninghame with full freights of fish.

CANN RIVER ROAD. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 31 July 1914
CANN RIVER ROAD. A correspondent writes:-The recent rains are playing havoc with the new road to the Cann Riyer. The road that has been lately opened is nothing more than a quagmire owing to large 'crab holes extending right across the road, and which should be at once attended to. Otherwise all the traffic will be stopped ae the old road is cut up with gullies, and blocked by fallen timber from beyond the Bell Bird to Cub Terrace. At Stony Creek a deplorable state of things exists. A team of 16 bullocks, belong ing to Mr Hungerford, is bogged and all traffic is stopped. The pig waggons are having great trouble to cross down where the traffic used to cross. The mail coach arrived at Bell Bird very late with a full load of seven passengers, after having what might have proved serious trouble through being compelled. to c:oss the creek lower down. Now sir, if the council does not. do something at once the Country Roads Board will have to be communicated and, no doubt, the Postal Depar...
