TILLEY'S ROAD. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 4 August 1922
TILLEY'S ROAD. Sir,-And so your correspondent "The Magpie " is surprised that anyone should find fault with Cr. Bradbury. then admits that a large sum of money WAS spent on this road. Any councillor who gets a gra velled road to his own door, while other people have to put up with bad ones,: must expect to be regarded as not above sus picion. Has "The Magpie" noticed the incipient creeks that are beginning to develop in the water-tables of some of our back streets? Has he inspected the roads out Mr Rotter's way, or between Research and War. randyfe? If be has.ibe will know that there are none like Tilley's Road. He further tells . ns Cr. Bradbury is well versed in all matters of finance-it seems so, since he has secured a good road at the ratepayers' expense. Auain, your correspondent asks 'what other interest would you wish. him to show ?" Well, he might reasonably be expected to show a live interest in getting the rate re duced from 2s 6d to Is 31 in the £, and the water rate from...
Apology. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 4 August 1922
Apology. IN our issue of June 30 there appeared some lines over the name of "On looker," and as they were inappropriate and evidently intended to hurt the feel ings of several people, we regret having published them. We had only just taken over the business, and if time had per mitted fora a thorough perusal, they would not have been published.
"DAYLIGHT." TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 4 August 1922
"DAYLIGHT." 0o TH? EDITOR OP THE ADVERTISER. Sir,--"Some Daylight" contends thst writing nuder a nom de plume on a public question is fair and legitimate. So it is if it is done decently. But no gentleman maken mean personal insinuations in an anonymous letter. It seems characteristic of this writ. er that he must impute narrow and personal motives to those who differ from him. He saya : "()ne ran appreciate Mr Rlodger's de sire to help one who did to munh for him during his attempts to enter municipal life." I have heard something like this before and have denied it frequently. I even heard that Cr Hewitt had been credited with writing one of my advertisementa for me. How tnyone could either invent or believo such a preposterous tale p:,sses mr compre. heusion. As a matter oi fact, I can only remember seeing Cr Hewitt once during my last "'attempt to enter municipal life " I went specially to see him about certain mat ters of fact, and found him, with his coat off, and his axe in h...
EXPLANATION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 4 August 1922
EXPLANATION, TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER SSir,-- see by your last issue that Cr Hewitt quotes an extract from Mr Mann's letter of the 21st ultimo, as corroboration to his state tents regarding Cr White and the extra penny halfpenny rate. I need not point out to your readers that the extract referred to was from Mr MIann's letter in re ply to the one by Cr Hewitt, in which I ai le'e misrepraseutatinns were mande. Tnoua h it is pleasing to flud ex-Cr -Mann corrobor ating Cr Hewitt's statements for once even If indirectly, there might not have been a'snggestion of corroboration had \lr ar?lna ,who was present in the council chautber at the time), trusted more to his o, n hearing and placed less reliance on Cr Hewit.'s written sttement. Thanking you, sir. for this insertion nnd Cr. Hewitt for his brief, subtle reply.-Yours. &c,, 4? T; HARRIS.
THOSE 200 ACRES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 4 August 1922
THOSE 200 ACRES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. Sir,-Whilst thanking Cr dewitt for giv ing me a whole letter to myself in your last issue, in answer to mine of the 21st, he has not attempted to refute or answer any of the facts contained in it, but contents himself by giving a series of questious which are ir revelant, and of which No. 4 is the limit. I would refer Cr Hewitt to that old warrior mentioned in the lines learnt years ago The brave old Duke of York, He had five hunlred men, He marched them up to the top of 'the bill. And he marched them down again. So that when Cr Hewitt takes his produce 2 down to the main Queenstown road he cao just go back again. In No. 7 Cr Hewiit asks where are those 200 acres I referred to when I said that for every one acre that can be brought into prfiliable production in Ch Hewitt's route 200 can he brought into this in Mr Mann's route, and if Cr Hewitt does not know tiffs, it is perfectly lain he (")r Hewitt) has not a grip of what he is writ...

THE 01lt at and W hittleoea Y is4e t vertiSer AND Published Every Friday Afternoon FRIDAY, AUGUST 4, 1922. Public Service. To do good to those around them is the aim of quite a number of people, but ii proportion to population they are numerically small. - Some men take little or no interest in public matters-in the affairs of their town or 'country. They say they have not time, but when the case is analyzed it proves that they are so engrossed witlh their.:own, business . and the pleasures of the day that they do not want to make time for the com munity's good, Again,there are those who are very fond of laying down the law, but do not go any further, as it means a little self-sacrifice. The silent worker is known only to a few, as he does not proclaim what he is doing from the housetops, but gets results that count. Most people have some leisure moments with which to effect good results, an im provement in local conditions, or a benefit to the individual and society generally. It i...
