There was a very good attendance, and in the absence of the president, Mr Mann, the vice president, Mr Joseph Murphy, pre sided. A discussion whether the branch, should " carry on" or dis band, which lasted some time, was decided= in' favor of "' carrying on," when a letter from the general sec retary,' Miss P. N. Robertson, was read advising the branch not -to dis band, but in future to give its tsup port to one of the metropolitan pub lic hospitals. The members .were unanimous in adopting this sugges. tion. The usual business of election of office-bearers was proceeded with, and were re-elected.

General News. ARTIFICIAL CAMPHOR. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 25 August 1922
General News. -0---- ARTIFICIAL CAMPHOR. Artificial camphor is now being made in quantity in America from coal tar, according to Mr C. R. De Long, chief chemist of the United States .Tariff Commission. In an address he delivered recently, Mr De Long said the high price 'of camphor during the war led to search for a substitute, with the result that tri phenyl and trjcesyl phosphates were introduced as substitutes for camphor in the manufacture of pyroxylin plastics. The fact that in the past Japan has enjoyed a complete mon opoly of the world's supply of cam phor was well :=known. It was extremely doubtful whether these two coal-tar products could replace camphor in pyroxlyn plastics for all purposes, but they offered a means of overcoming to some degree the -Japanese monopoly in camphor. The importance of the development of these camphor substitutes could not be overestimated.

HEAVY TRAFFIC. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 25 August 1922
HEAVY TRAFFIC. Sir,-On reading the last report of the Eltham Shire Council's meeting one can not help but be struck with the attitude adopt&?'by Cr Bath in reference to the above. He says that next year all'heavy traffic should be stopped on May 1. In and around this district there are quite a number of men and families who are de pending upon. the heavy traffic for their means of livelihood, and it would be in teresting for the councillors to state why this portion of the community should be 'deprived of their:living.while others are allowed a free hand on the same roads. The timber and potato industries are just as necessary to the life of the community as anything else. If the council' takes up this stand it will have the effect of crippling local industries and driving people out of the community. The plea is also used that when it rains heavily the school has to be closed-heavy traffic again. The report goes on to state that £200 has been spent (on the deviation, Toolan...

TWO ROUTES. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 25 August 1922
TWO ý ROUTES. Sir.-Cr Hewitt's moderatiou surprised me.: when I read the list of properties he joggled on to, No. 1 route. Why_ did be not go a bit further-right to Panton Hill to irflate the No. I ruute ? Cr Hewitt ciaims for No. I' route (1) That it serves more people. [. deny this: Cr Hewitt closes .his eyes .to the faet that the No. 1 cuts off all of Arthur's Creek and stream-. ville districts in the Whittlesea shire and a good slice of Arthur's Creek in the Eltham shire. and sends settlers here over impos sible roads to the Whittlesea line, when the Hurstbridge line is.nearer aid the eouitry is a hundred times more productive, and is better subdivided than the desert wilds along the No. I route. where'the rabbits from. the No -I wilderness come to get a glimpse of. better things on No. 2 below before they give up. the ghost. Cr Hewitt writes: ". Everybody beyond &Mr 'ann's can use either route, as they all must come to the junction of the two routes." This is correct. B...

Correspondence. RIFLE CLUB. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 25 August 1922
Correspondence, RIFLE CLUB. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. Sir,-Some time ago I was asked to con vene a meeting to form, or. revive, a dis trict rifle club. This was done, and two meetings have since been held, both on pouring wet nights, but in spite of that the response has been most gratifying, and nearly 40 members have " signed on," leav ing no doubt as to the popularity of such a venlture. It seems possible that beside the range already established at Queenstown, one nea er to Hursthridge will be opened, 'and if this is done, the one objection to such an out-of-the;way spot will be re moved. In addition to this the Arthur's Creek Club intend joining the new forma tion, and it seems probable that a portion of the Diamond Creek Club will do son too. If this happens the club will be a very strong one with some excellent and keen shots. A final. meeting'will be called on Wednesday, August 30, at ,Pantdn.Hillto elect office-bearers and .to take steps to have the club registered a...
Cricket. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 25 August 1922
Cricket. A meeting of delegates of thie forth Riding Shire of Eltham Association was held at Queenstown on Monday evening last, Cr Hewitt (president). presiding.. Delegates were present from six .clubs, namely, Kinglake, Queenstown, Arthur's Creek, Panton Hill,. Kangaroo Ground and Hurstbridge, and it is likely that the whole six clubs represented will take part in the competition. The question of radius and the granting of permits caused, much discussion when the rules were behik revised. Finally it was decided to. let the previous rule stand, viz., "'Players. must be bona-fide residents or earn their livelihood in the north riding of the Shire of Eltham, but permits may be granted to players living, within a radius: of 2.. -miles. from the riding boundary." A concession, however, was granted Arthur's Creek, they being allowed a radius of three miles. - It was decided to commence the association matches on Saturday, 14th October. After the reading of the minutes and the secretary.,...
