Tim question of a fifth riding for the Moorabbin Shire does not appear to possess much life. It is important enough to demand more serious attention, whilst at the same time, it can scarcely be classed as nurgent, Black Rookl ratopayers appear to be vitally interested in the proposition They have obttined numerous signa tures in favor of the scheime, but an energetio canvass of the whole of the shire has not yet been made.

This is reooognised in more than one purlio body, and rightly so. The council itself, of course,...
