OBITUARY. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 31 January 1914
OBITUARY. We regret having tCo record the death of Mr. F. Buttler, which took place at the Melbourne hospital on 29th January. Mr. Buttler has been in indifferent health for two years, and the cause of his death was heart failure. He was one of the oldest natives of Northcote, having been born here in 1852, and he subsequently resided in the town for upwards of 60 years. In connection with the Northcote Methodist Church and Sunday School he was a tireless and indefatigable worker, and took special interest some years back in the celebra tion of the church's jubilee, being one of the few who had had a continuous connection from its inception, Of an exceptionally bright, and cheerful dis dosition the late Mr. Buttler was popu lar with all. Four years ago he removed to Montrose, where he had purchased a business, but misfortune in the shape of accident and sickness seemed to (log his steps, ending in what seems, remember ing his great activity a few years back, a premature breakdown.

NORTHCOTE COUNCIL, COMMENDED. To the Editor. Sir,-The opinion expressed by your correspondent, "Progress for Preston," is not endorsed by all the residents of Preston. Indeed, there are many, my self included, who believe that the action of a majority of the Northeote Council saved the situation; and they deserve to be commended for having the business acumen ond moral courage to veto one of the most ambitious and wildest cat ventures that has ever been attempted in the history of the shire, incurring the heavy initial expenditure of £23,000; and, in addition, placing an unknown liability of interest, up-keep, working expenses on the gentle and unsuspecting ratepayers, who would have to bear the burden without a possible hope of get ting any relief, even by carrying the en tire travelling public of the shire.
