To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 31 January 1914

To the Editor. Sir,-in your report of the p)roet'ed ings at a meeting of the Northern Traum way Extension League appearing in last week's "Leader," certain of our coun cillors are credited with the acrobatic perftormance of turning topsy tur'vey, and are being called "mono-maniaes"' and "bottle-neckers,"whatever the lat ter may mean. But why all this feel ing, fuss, and squealing, Is it because the whippers are feeling a little of the sting of their own lash? Cr, Tharratt was, 'when he wore the mayoral robes, a keen advocate of the necessity for more and better hall accommodation, but when the matter of building the new hall was before the council he (Cr. Tharratt), presumably to please the majority of the west ward ratepayers, voted against it, There was no squeal in on that occasion. Then why such an ear-splitting yell now when he votes to pIlease himself, and, in the writer's opinion, for the town's good.-Yours, &c., Cu.THAL WAni. A meeting of the Northern Tramway Extensi...

CR. THARRATT IN VINDICATION OF HIS VOTE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 31 January 1914

CR. THAR ATT IN VINDICATION OF HIS VOTE, TO 'THEI JDITO, Sir,-Adverting to the much-discussed. question of St. George's Road Electric Tramway we have had no expert advice, the scheme and estimate of cost being the work of a layman, a gentleman of Fitzroy, and while I have every respect for him, I certainly think that before adopting a scheme involving an initial expense of at least £65,000, and a large annual amount for maintenance and running expenses, the best q,3 ert opl)i: ion should be'secured. The proposed route is parallel and in close proximity to the railway and mun icipal tramway. It could not offer such low fares to the constant traveller, and I doubt if many of the most enthusiastic supporters of the St. George's Road tramway would be willing to ride at a higher rate when a lower would equally suffice., It is wrong to hold up Prahran-Mal vern trams as an example for THEY (1do not run parallel with an existing ser vice. A service running east and west, bringing the people...

COMMONWEALTH BANK. STILL UNPROFITABLE. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 31 January 1914

COMMONWEALTH BANK. STILL UNPROFITABLE, The Commonwealth Bank continues quietly to pursue its losses. Its deficit still mounts without comment, notice or consideration front either Parliament or people. Everybody seems agreed that the history of the new bank is going to be long, and a few thousand pounds loss or gain in its first year are not going to count. Despite strong opposition to the bank, Treasurer Forrest has been unable to gratify his desire and remove Federal public accounts from it. Nor is he able to hurt or interfere with it in any way. He can't do anything without raising a row, and Liberal Ministers want above all thing to avoid rows. Sir. John remembers that the electorates voted for a Commonwealth Bank, that to close it up would cost money, and that in any case the Senate would never agree to amendments in the Commonwealth Bank Act. Ministers' opposition is restricted to refraining from encouragement, and to occasional sly digs at its Govenor, Dennison Miller, Parram...

IN A LONDON WOiRK(IIOUSE CRUELTY AND NEGLECT (By Chris. Massle in the "Daily Mail.") I do not want anyone to think that my present abode is a place of uni form harshness and cruelty, On the other hand-setting aside the casual ward, which is one of the worst in the metropolitan area - my present abode has a particularly good name for leniency and fair treatment. My contention from the general is this, that cases of cruelty and neglect do happen, and always will happen in institutions of this kind while in mates have no audible voice and no impartial judgment on their griev ances, ,. I shall take for the special purposes of my article a circumstance which happened some time ago. Of parallel circumstances I have a good and vari ous collection, but this one is chosen on account of its .incontestable accu racy of detail, and because it covers ground which otherwise I should have to trace separately. The facts are these: A man whom I will call II. was admitted to the in firmary attached t...
