ELTHAM. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 30 November 1923
ELTHAM. (From Our Own Correspondent.) It is with regret that I report the death of Mr. Clive Capewell, eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. Capewell, who are so well known locally. The oc currence is made more pathetic by the fact that the deceased gentle man spent his honeymoon in Etham some few months ago. He was a pupil of the local school and popu lar amongst his schoolfellows. Upon leaving school he adopted the engin eering trade as a profession, and ob taining an appointment in Tasmania, migrated there some years ago. He married and settled there. A few weeks ago he contracted pneumonia, and his mother was hastily 'summon ed by a telegram, his father .and brother following later. Mrs. Cape well just arrived in time to see her son alive. A young widow is left to mourn her loss. Our sympathy is extended to the sorrowing parents and to the members of the family. A memorial service will be held at the Eltham Methodist Church, ' of wi-',h the deceased, prior to his de parture to Tasmania, wa...
Codlin Moth & Light Crops. A WARNING. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 30 November 1923
Codlin Moth & Light Crops, A WARNING. By G. M. Fletcher, Orchard Supervisor. It has been a matter for congratu lation among apple growers that codlin moth has been remarkably light this season, and a false sense of security has lbeen created. It is a fact that practically no moths are yet in evidence, but it does not fol low that the balance of the season will show the same freedom. There is a reason for this scarcity. It is the remarkably cool weather that has obtained up to the end of last week. The sudden rise in tempera ture this week, to what is really sea sonable weather, will act like magic on the grubs, lying in cover in their cocoons, behind bark, cracks, and all sorts of shelter. Nature is a good parent in some ways, and in her care of her broods of codlins she has just delayed their wakening till wea ther conditions were really favour able to their existence. Every grower wilt remember that right through the late summer and autumn, the codlin was bad, and the grea...

Correspondence. A LABOUR LEAGUE FOR HURSTBRIDGE. To the Editor of The Advertiser [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 7 December 1923
Correspondence. A LABOUR LEAGUE. FOR -H~IUSTBRIDGE. To the Editor of The Advertiser Sir,--In Hurstbridge and the sur rounding district there are probably two hundred Laborites but they are not organised and are out of touch with each other and the movement. Why do we not follow the example of Eltham' and form a Labor League? Regular meetings could be held and much good done locally, as well as for the movement. We could co operate with the progress Associa tion in agitating for what is for the general benefit of the district, and influence some .of the many half hearted supporters of the discred ited anti-labor parties to become earnest supporters of the workers' cause. In this and many other country listricts there are wage workers, and a plan is necessary for them to obtain regular employment; through not being organised they attempt to undercut each others' conditions, in order to be sure of a steady job. A Labor League by restricting com petition, could help to remedy this, and ...
THOUGHTS. ROAD PROBLEM. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 7 December 1923
THOUGHTS. ROAD PROBLEM. (BY 31ERNDA.) Having read a few days ago the most astonishing statement, by a member of the executive of the Municipal Association, that the dele gates at the annual cohference of the Association did not know what they were doing when they turned down the proposed nationalisation of six arterial roads of the State, being one of those who opposed the propo sition, I can inform the executive that I knew perfectly well what I was doing, and so did those who voted with me, as it was a grossly unfair proceeding to pick out six roads and leave all the other main A short time after the tolls were abolished,. I was the 'first municipal representative to urge this being done. I did this when on a depu tation to the late Sir Thomas Bent, he then being Minister of Public Works, and Mr. Le Creu being the Secretary. On the deputation were Mr. McKiehan, representing the Mt. Rouse Shire; Mr. Benson, a metro politan constituency; Mr. Fitz Gib bon, then Town Clerk of Melbourn...

Kinglake. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 7 December 1923
Kinglake, Friday, November 23, was the scene of a festive occasion in the Kinglake Hall, when a plain and fancy dress ball was held in aid of the hall funds. The hall was beau tifully decorated with colored streamers, flags, and ferns. This was the work of some of the com mittee ladies, and reflects great cre dit on them. Another feature was the lights, which were suppled gra tis by Mr. Yates. The night was glorious, and many visitors journeyed from Steel's Creek, Hurstbridge, Kinglake West, Melbourne, and the surrounding dis tricts. A good many of the dancers were in fancy dress, and amongst them were Mrs. Haslet (moth) ,Miss Mills (France), Miss V. McDonald (Powder Puff), Miss Thomson (French Maid), Miss E.

,Ithatil And? qVlritttae a hldr?. AND Pu blislhed Every Friday .4Afterion HURSTBRIDGE, DECEMBER 7, 1923. Shire Divisions. THERE is a desire amongst many: ratepayers for a readjustment of boundaries in the Eltham, Whittle sea and Heidelberg shires, and Alph ington is the latest to move in the matter, a meeting last week deciding in favor of a separate riding, i.e., to secede from Ivandoe riding. It was stated that the time would come when Alphington and Fairfield would form a new municipality, and that they had nothing in common with the other ridings. It is also asserted - that none of the ridings have any r interest in Greensborough riding, and there has long been a suggestion r that the latter area be cat off. The Epping riding is trying to sever its a connection with the Whittlesea shire and have a small shire of its own. There is dissatisfaction in the North riding of the Eltham shire, because it supplies about half the revenue of the shire and has only three repre sentatives ou...

Cook, M.P., has received the following letter from the Acting Deputy Postmaster-General: "With reference to a communication receiv ed from the Progress Association, Hurstbridge, urging that action be taken to obviate delays to telephone trunk line traffic between that place and other stations, I beg to inform -you that Hurstbridge is in circuit on the Melbourne-Cottle's Bridge trunk line, and an analysis of the traffic data indicates that the business is disposed of with reasonable expedi tion, although the results are not in accordance with the standard pre scribed.

In the meantime action is being taken with a view to business over the existing circuit being disposed of with the minimum amount of delay.

Queenstown. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 7 December 1923
Queenstown, The Secretary of the Delegates' League of Progress Associations of the North Riding has appealed to Mr Robt. Cook, M.H.R., to support by all means in his power, the re-erection of the telephone line from Queens town to Hurstbridge. The erection of this short" stretch of three miles would mean direct communication between Kinglake, North Queens town, Queenstown and Paunton Hill, with Hurstbridge - the local rail way and shopping centre - instead of as at present, all messages having to go first to Melbourne and then back through Diamond Creek to Hurstbridge. The prospect of railway extension from Hurstbridge to Mitton's Bridge, Queenstown, has led to a mild build ing boom. Already two new houses have been erected; the timber -is on the ground for a third; and plans have been considered for two others. The district is ideal for week-end resi dences. A troop" of girl-scouts hiave made arrangements to camp in the district over the, Christmas vacation. The "Bachelors of Strat...

MONTMORENCY R.S. TRUST. To the Editor of The Advertiser Sir,--I was glad to see that every thing is now settled up about the railway trust, and we ought to be very grateful that we have such a nice station, so handy this hot wea ther. I would like to make a suggestion, that the list of all subscribers to the trust be also sent to the chairman of the Montmo'rency Progress Assoc iation (or the secretary), as it is much easier for most of the subscri bers, I should think, to see the list in Montmorency, instead of having to go to Greensborough.-Yours, &c. LOWER PLENTY. [The secretary of the trust in forms us that subscribers' lists are in the hands of Messrs. Price, Haynes, and Jessop (Greensborough), and Cameron (Rattray-road, Montmor ency).-Ed. "A"].
