CITY AND COUNTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 11 July 1914
CITY AND COUNTRY. The country districts are sighing for rain, the lack of which presages had times to the producer in general. Last month, June, was phenomenally dry, and though July has opened with a promiso of better results as regards rainfall, up to the present, the shortage is serious. In the northern and north eastern districts April rains are looked tons indicating prosperity; June rains, as coming in time to save the crops; but there has seldom been an experience such as the present, of a practically rainless June, following on dry condi tions in April and May. A serious con dition must result in the pastoral and growing ureas, which will, in time, react on the city industries. Both Mel bourne and suburbs, however, continue to grow with wonderful rapidity, and there is no sign of slackening in any direction. The building operations aiongHigh street, Northcote, supply an example of the faith city dwellers have in the permnnunce of their surroundings and the fixity of industri...

ST. GEORGE'S ROAD TRAMWAY. THE PKESTON VIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 11 July 1914
ST. GEORGE'S ROAD TRAMWAY. THE PKESTON VIEW. The Preston view of the proposed extension of tramway facilities along St. George's road was clearly put by councillors on Monday evening, on the reception of a deputation from the Northern Tramway Extension League, requesting co-operation in a deputation to the Premier. The deputation was very favorably received, and the various speakers put the case from the League's stand point. Cr. Robertson said that, in his opinion, the best route had not been chosen, as a private'road had been utilised, which might cause trouble subsequently, whereas the line might be branched at Bell street, going along a- public high way. Cr. Allcliin, in moving that*a com mittee be appointed to co-operate with the deputation, strongly favored an extension along St. George's road, and urged that as many councillors and ratepayers as possible should attend. Cr. Crispe, acting president, said that the council was practically unanimous as to the St. George's road ro...

JUSTICE TO ALL. Published every Saturday Mcrninp. SATURDAY, JULY 11. MARBLES AND SKIPPING-ROPES. Messrs Cook and Fisher, the lenders of Government nntl Opposition respec tively, have spoken, nnd the smaller fry will now tnkc up their election choruses on public platforms. Electors may, therefore, surfeit themselves during the forthcoming works with the jargon that passes for politics. Good old "tariff reform" willdoduty on many platforms, again affording an asylum of refuge for windy orators who wish to say nothing vory impressively. Then, specially dressed for this occasion, there are sev eral comparatively modern phrases, such as "clcctive ministries/' "initia tive referendum," "preference to unionist^," 'Vqual opportunities to all," "the Aok is for it," 4 4the Age is against it," and many other symbols of sound and fury—signifying nothing. These simply be sticks and straws thrust into electors* hands by dextrous politicians. By the aid of such phrases "politics" is made.possible ...
