WHERE'S THAT £480 GONE? [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 18 August 1922
. WHERE'S THAT £480 GONE? - Sir,- Cr Hewitt *will persist in. stating that- the-above amount was wasted oi Bow deu's.Spur. Would he publish the amounts paid (a' Wages, (b) sUlpervision,'(c) wrongly spent on 1lurdie's road. The Strathewen Progress Association advocated this road, Mr J. Mann backed it up, and bad 'he been returned at last election we would have one of the finest roads in the shire, a road an paralleled in the whole State for scenery,'a more direct road to central Kinglake, and a lasting memorial of the great war; and at no expense to the council. This road must be. completed sooner or later, and the funds must come' from the rateyayerse; since the time is past for repatriation grants., The waste of money rests not with Mr Mann. hut, his successor, who advocated first.Bald Hill.i secondly . Queenstown Bridge, and lastly Memorial Park, and failing in his efforts was determined to out Bowden's Spur and ob tained; :satisfactory results to, himself. Yours. ac., W. HORNE, '...
BOWDEN'S SPUR. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 18 August 1922
- BOWDERNS -SPUR. TO THE EDITOR OF THI ADVERTISER. Sir--As the time is opportune, I should like to place the facts relative to the above before your readers, to enable them to judge whether the Strathewen Progress Assecia -tion (not any one councillor) in its rtquest for a portion of the North riding's share of the repatriation grant, to be spent on the above spur, committed such a grave blunder as some would have them believe: As I was appointed to introduce the request, I naturally am prepared to justify its claims, We had more than one reason for our re quest ; they were :-1. 'The openilg up of the Peter's Creek, one of our beauty spots, whiih compares favorably with many others in Victoria. 2. As a connecting link. be tween Kinglake and Strathewen this spur is ideal, on acconut of its shortnesa, and its great suitability for road making.- It would open up Crown lands. The work was of a national character, and complied with the counitions of the grant, It was rekolved to notify t...

Correspondence; WHO WAS' RESPONSIBLE ? Sir.-Your correspondent, Dayid. Rodger, accuses me.of._wasting hundreds of pounds of ratepayers' mo?iey, add holds me respon i: ble for making the Bowden's pur project a failure. ie, goes on to say Cr li.witt was elected to stop this waste. Why did not Cr Hewitt do so ? Not one peney of the £280 grant was spent on Bowden's Spur till over THREE months after I was defeated at the election. Who, then, was responsible for the mismanagement and neglect which allowed the hundreds to be spent in the wrong place, and the. wrong way, if not the *district representative, Cr Hewitt,?. 1 main tain that, had the grant been speautwhere I wanted it and" how I wanted it tb be spent,. the Bowden's Spur project would have'been as lively to-day as it was 50 years ago, .when seventeen teams were carting palings down it. To-day many teams would have been carting potatoes down Bowden's Spur to Hurstbridge; but no, in spite of Cr Hewitt being elected to stop waste, h...

ANK UNACCEPTED CHALLENGE. TO THB EDITOR OF THE ADVBRTISea. Sir,-Two issues of your paper have been printed since my last letter appeared. Every statement I made I gave reasons for, and again challenge Cr Hewitt to. deny them. If not, he should abandon his agitation for a developmental road for himself, from Cott-le's Gully along the wall-known desert range between Q zeentstown and Upper Ar teur's Creek.
