CORRESPONDENCE [Whilst this column is always opon for freo discussion on public topics, otc, wo do not hold ourselves responsibln for any opinions expressed by the writers of the letters.j WEARY OF WAITING TO THE KDITOU OK THK ,cCOUUIHK" Sir,-It is with extreme satisfaction that I noticed, by a letter published in the last issue of your paper, that the ratepayers of Stradbroke aud the sur rounding district are beginning to weary of the way they are neglected by the Rosedale Shire Council. Is it any wonder ? I am surpristd that the have borne the treatment so long. During the last four years what has been done to the Port road been Merriman's Creek and the gravelled portion at Longford ? Simple nothing, with the exception of a few chains of formation near Mr Hobson's. The reason given ler the lack of interest in this particular riding I helievc, is the paucity of funds, yet money can be found to carry on works in other distiict1; that ate alteady well served by good roads. Such an ex...
A BIT OF LEG PULLING [Newspaper Article] — Rosedale Courier — 2 April 1914
A BIT OF LEG PULLING Even newspapers go in for a bit of "leg-pulling" now and again. The Yarram "Standard'* gives us a bit in the following : "There is one thing to be said of Al berton councillors, they have the con fidence of all hills country settlers. 'We can't get all we want," remarked one from further back, at Fairview on Wednesday. 'They haven't the money, but my word they do their best.' A similar opinion is held throughout the hills. At Blackwarry last week a settler bemoaned the fact that he was on the boundary of the Alberton and Rosedale shires, and drew comparisons, i somewhat odious to Rosedale. If our informant is correct, the Rosedale Shire Council allows nothing for re moval of a fallen tree from off a road. Travellers must perforce do tbis work themseives. The Albeiton Shire Council always pays for the work-and quite reasonable too. Other instances are cited in which Alberton Shire man agement compared more than favorably with the Rosedale Shire. One en thusiastic...
THE COWWARR-DENISON IRRIGATION SCHEME TO THE EDITOR OF THE "COURIER" [Newspaper Article] — Rosedale Courier — 2 April 1914
THE COWWARR-DENISON IRRIGATION SCHEME TO THE EDITOR OF THE 4'COURIER Sir,-I quite agree with the views expressed in a letter appearing in your Sale contemporary, over the signature of "Wake Up." It is about time some thing was done to bring this district under irrigation. In November. 1898, Mr Elwood Mead visited the district, and was shown over it by the members of the progress association, and lec tured on irrigation at Cowwarr in the evening. Mr Mead spoke highly of the distiict as an irrigation proposition and caused a survey of the whole dis trict to be made, and areport furnished to the Water Supply Department. The sutvey was completed about the middle of 1909, and showed that ihere were about 35,000 acres ot good land suit able, which could be easily iriigated. The question of obtaining supplies from the Latrobe River also received attention. The levels would not ad mit of this being done by gravitation, neither are they favorable for pumping. The distiict requires irrigating...
GORMANDALE [Newspaper Article] — Rosedale Courier — 2 April 1914
GORMANDALE (from our own Correspondent). We shared in the bountiful rainfall of last neelt, but lor which the record for March would have been unusually low. iCo points were recorded. A team of tennis players from Gor niandale recently played a match with some Traralgon players on the court attached to l'resbyteiian Church grounds. After a friendly game, the visitors came out victors by 4 points. The game was closely contested throughout, the final scores being Oormandale 37 games, Traralgon 33 ijames. fn the privicus match played on the local court the locals lost. Mr O'Connell, rabbit inspector, had a meeting of landholders one evening last week, to discuss the rabbit question with the view cf checking the invasion of the pest. The evening was threaten ing and the attendance consequently was sparse. As at his previous visit the inspector explained very clearly the latest and best methods of trying to beat Bunny. Here and there we hear ol rabbita being seen and sometimes one being ...

BEET-GROWING AND IRRIGATION To the Editor of the "Mercury," [Newspaper Article] — Rosedale Courier — 2 April 1914
BEET-GROWING AND IR RIGATION To the Editor cf the "Mercury," Sir,-Re the proposed irrigation of the beet sugar lands in and around Maffra, I beg to suggest that the scheme is a most practicable one; (or, with irrigation, there is no other crop that will produce such a return (rom the land. We have about 7000 acres of land within 12 miles of the factory capable of growing sugar-beet with any land in the State-namely Denison and Nambrok pfains. The land at the present is mostly used for growing wheat, oats, etc., with which, at the present value of the land, not a very pr&lt; fitable return can be made. Now, sir, I fail to see why this land cannot be irrigated, and the sugar-beet in dus'.iy, which has been a failure in the past, made a profitable one. Hoping to see otheis express their views on this subject. -lours, etc, \ WAKE-UP
THE MAFFRA "SPECTATOR'S" VIEW [Newspaper Article] — Rosedale Courier — 2 April 1914
THE MAFFRA "SPECTATOR'S" VIEW The recommendation of the Min isters of Agriculture and Lands to the Cabinet to closedown the Sugar Works at Maffra at the termination of the present campaign comes as somewhat at a thunderclap to the residents of Waflfra and district. Governmental methods are always open to criticism, and those adopted in connection with - the resuscitation of the-beet sugar - in . dustry (or the past' four years are subjects for severe criticism. In every move they were "the day after the Fair," whilst individual growers, with little' experience, were plainly proving beet growiug under irrigation conditions; was a distinctly payables proposition. 1 Yet it only dawned or : the departmental heads at the last moment, and a perfunctory move, late as usual in the season, was made on the closer settlement blocks to iniga'e the present crop. Even the spasmodic effottshowed the value of water applied' when the plant required same, as was clearly demonstrated on the visit of t...

BEET SUGAR INDUSTRY STATE MINISTRY'S DISCON TINUANCE THE FINANCIAL POSITION [Newspaper Article] — Rosedale Courier — 2 April 1914
* BEET SUGAR INDUSTRY STATE MINISTRY'S DISCON TINUANCE THE FINANCIAL POSITION (From the "Age) The advice given to the State Cab inet that an end should be put to th'e teet sugar operations was defended on Friday by the Minister of Agriculture. While the factoiy is to be closed down, and tlie condition of compulsory grow ing is to be set aside, an irrigation scheme is promised. It was under stood last year that the Water Commission was preparing plans and estimates for an irrigation scheme which would meet the requirements of growers (or the present season. Mr Hutchinson said the Ministry felt that it was impossible to continue tbe experiment any longer. The en- i deavor to establish susar heet growing in Victoria had extended over four years, and by the end of this season it would be shown that the State had paid £50,000 more than it had received. He did not mean that it was all a dead loss-there was the value of plant to he taken into consideration-tut there had been a los~ o! thou...
