DECENTRALISATION. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 10 February 1914

DECENTRALISATION. * Kccently Mr T. M. Smith, organiser far the Victorian Decentralisation League, lectured at the London House, Melbourne, ou "Decentralisation and City Interests." At the outset Mr Smith referred to the fact that a commission was sitting to consider how to bolster up our city industries; whereas there was really a greater need tor inquiry into the shrinkage in the numbers of primary producers in the State. If this were undertaken, and the problem satisfac torily dealt with, there would be no need to worry about the condition of our secondary industries. They would be in no need of any help. The city could not be permanently prosperous unless the number and prosperity of primary producers steadily increased. therefore decentralisation affected city iuterests as well as those of the coun try. The present condition in which 600,000 people, or nearly half ihc popuiation of the State, were concen trated in one centre, was an abnormal one, and was growing worse. Our total...

She placed her arm out of a window of a railway carriage, when an open door of a passing traiu severed the hand and hurled it into the next compartment of the carriage. The accident was a tragic ending to a happy day. Fourteen girls, com prising the members of the .So.vers' Hand, in connection with the St Luke's Sunday School at North Fiuroy, had journeyed Jo Brighton Beach to join in a picnic of the members of the hand there.
