A Strange Experience. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 15 September 1922
A Strange Experience?: Swish t Swish 11 The road from. Hurstbridge to Whittlesea on Friday evening last, owing .to the heavy rain, caused the above sound as a car with five persons dodged a few holes. and went through pools of water. When nearing Yan Yean there was trouble ahead, as the Plenty River 'hadiover flowed its banks since 4 o'clock in the afternoon, and soon the car had to negotiate water that flowed over the footboard Still the Ford struggled on, but when within a quarter of a mile of the railway line- the water be came deeper, and the engine refused to work when the water flowed through the car. -The chauffeur (Mr. Roy Sharp' of 'the I urstbridge motor garage) soon realized the position, and' got out and made for Yan Vean, doing a bit of Blondinr work along the- fence; till he came to the barbed wire,' and when he stepped down he'got into a drain, which landed him in water up to his thighs. Proceeding on, he met a man who. promised to go to the rescue with -a horse. The ...

Diamond Creek. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) Scoutmaster McWiggin and his officers visited Diamolnd Creek for the purpose of forming a scout corps which they have suc ceeded in doing. About £20 smart-looking boys responded to the call, and they started drill last Saturday. It now rests-with the residents to supply the lads with the proper tools, etc. About 20 would be very ac- ceptable.

Eltham. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 15 September 1922
Eltham. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT). On Saturday evening a dance was held in the public hall, the proceeds being in aid of the football club, Miss Goldman (piano) and Mr Howard (violin) supplied the music, and Mr A. Gollings was M.C. The attendance was not large, but a net profit was shown for the evening. On Friday evening. Sept. 8, a , on. ster streamer and confetti night was held in the public hall, the proceeds being devoted to Montmorency Queen Carnival. Unfortunately rain fell and spoilt what- wouid have been otherwise a successful evening. Never theless, the takings ensured financial success. Mrs Luckman supplied the music, and was, as usual, first-class. The streamers were very effective de corations, and 'much merriment was caused, as the dancers became en tangled in these paper folds. One couple were almost completely en folded with these paper streamers, and reminded me forcibly of an Egyptian dummy packed up.ready.for transpor-. tation-no offence meant. The con fetti was th...
BOWDEN SPUR. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 22 September 1922
BIXWDEN SPUR . . TO 'THE EDITOR OF THE ADYERTISHR :Sir,-Firstly, 1 want. to thank my oppo nent (Mr Rodger) for the high compliment he paid me by publicly admitting in his last letter that he-"cannot" challenge my statements or disprove, my contentions re' the Bowden Spur road .problem. -'He still persists in insinuating that.' the engineer condemned Bowden spur road. After full investigation I say that it was not the Bof' den Spur "road" that the engineer cot - demned, and having admitted that he cunld not challenge any of "my" statements, I now challenge Mr Rodger to prove his own or withdraw them. Mr Rodger's insinuation in your issue of August i1 that Cr Camp hell was elected to oppose .Bowden Spur road is not, correct. Mr Rodger's eagerness (in your last issue) to protest that he has not accused the Eltham. council of misman agement can well be" understood, as the splendid financial position of the East and South ridings place the shire in an enviable position. The fact that the...

PASSENGERS travelling on the trains are frequently. subjected-to 'consider able annoyance by the misbehaviour of young people, who seem to haves the impression, that because they have paid their fares they can do as they like; and they do so in many cases, because few passengers care to check them for fear of insolence. In addition to their horse-play and coarse jokes, they wilfully destroy the compartments and the upholster ed seats, which must cost the Department a large sum every year to repair. Both first and second class compartments suffer,. which shows that there are destructive youths in both classes. A casecase me before the Eltham court last: week, in which a youth of 17. was charged with smoking in'a non-smoking -do; partment, and indulging in horse play to the annoyance of passengers. The P.M.

SUNDAY TENNIS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 22 September 1922
SUNDAY TENNIS.' TO TEB EDITOR OW THE ADVRRTISER. Sir,-I notice in your paper that the Hurstbridge tennis club has decided not to allow tennis on Sundays. Now, I think it is a great mistake, for when crowds come here for the week ends surely a game of tennis should not be denied them. Crewds of people come here and go shooting, fishing and motoring, so where is the harm in play ing tennis Y If Hurstbridge is to be kept a .bush town and not progress and not wel come others 'with healthy and modern ideas, then close the courts on -Sunday, litalbso step the other Sunday recreations.-Yours, &c., ';LOVE ALL."
BUTCHER'S GULLY ROAD. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 22 September 1922
BUTCHER'S GULLY ROAD. TO THE BDILOR OP THI ADYIRTIIER Sir,-I would like to draw the attention of the president and councillors of the Eltham shire to the shocking condition of Butcher's Gully road. The Metropolitan press is publishing articles on the deplor able condition of the roads in the hill coun try of Gippsland. One does not need to go so far from home to see bad roads. Per haps if councillors were compelled to travel along the Butcher's Gully road every time they had to attend a council meeting some thing might be done. We hear a good deal about people flooking to the city, but I consider they show 'their wisdom by doing so, when ;they get-such little encourage ment from the local council.-Yours, etc., UNFORTUNATE USER.

THOUGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 22 September 1922
T. HOUGHTS. - (By M ERNDA.) Beiing-in a thoughtful humor, Iven ture to give. my iellow' citizens my ideas ,on the subjects contained there .in,and the first subject:is that of rat ing uinder shire councils rand the out come thereof. To understand the true position of shire councils, we want to go back to the old road board days, when muni cipal government war in its infancy.. Local bodies, in those days, were con stituted to make the bye roads of their various districts-not the main roads, but they were induced to take charge of the latter by the Government by being given the-proceeds from the tolls. Later on Sir Graham Berry took the. tolls away, and substituted a system of .Government grants in lieu thereof. In the first, place .I think £380,000 was given 'to helpcoqncils with the main roads, bit as tinie rolled on the grant gradually 'became Iess and less,. untiit. is hard to find it now This being, the' case, albeit.?the expense of keeping up! main roades had vastly in creased '...

C"orrespondence, SHIRE OF ELTHAM. TO THU EDITOS OP' THE ADVBRTISBZ. Sir,-" Ratepayer"-to use the words of S*ir Auckland Geddes, British Ambassador to the United States-is either grossly ignorant, villainously nmalicious, or JUST A od6L.. I have never heard Cr 'Hewitt take rH credit for the improvement in the shire finances, but 1 have heard him say that the hostility he met with for supporting the re-appointment of Mr M'Mahon as Secre tary had been amply compensated for by. the satisfactory manner in which Mr M'Mahon had carried out his duties: As to the North Riding financial position, " Ratepayer" forgets that the East Riding has borrowed £2500 from the State Savings Baik, and the South Riding £1500. It is out of this £4000 (on which 7 per oent. in terest must be paid for 15 years) that much of the road and bridge work has been done in the East and South ridings during the last 12 months. The North riding, how ever, has borrowed nothing, and has done its road and bridge work-out o...

Wonga Park. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) On Friday evening, September 15, a special meeting of the subscribers to the Mechanics' Institute was held, when there was a very large attend ance. The object was to consider the resignations of nearly half of the com mittee, as for some time past it has been found an unworkable body- At times during the meeting some very heated arguments took place, and it was close on midnight when a decision was arrived at, with the result that the remainder of the committee was asked to also resign, which, however, took place. A new chairman and commit tee was then elected to conduct the business for the remainder of the year, which ends on April 30, 1923, as fol lows :-President, Mr H.
