No Title [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Star — 20 November 1914

The defective lighting of the Leongatha railway station has been brought before the Railway Commissioners on several occa sions by the Shire Council and local residents. On- the 30th October, when .the Hon. J. E. Mackey was in Leongatha with the Ministerfor Mines, his atten tion was called to the matter. Mr Mackey lias since seen Mr Com missioner' McClelland, and he states that the absence of electric lighting'is due to a difference of from £10..to £15 between the Commissioners •and- the butter factory. : This, he says, is a small matter in itself, but the increase in cost iwould- involve ever so many other stations, and might totial to £1500. Mr McClelland said that the Commissioners would re-open the whole matter, and see if an arrangement: could be come to. It having been brought before our notice that youths have made attempts to gain admission to en tertainmients in 'the Leongatha Hall when travelling companies have been perforning by using the names of the newspapers in the to...
