SPORTING INTELLIGENCE. MOTOR AND CYCLE NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 22 January 1914
SPOETING INTELLIGENCE. M OTOR AN .CYCLE NOTFS. Some very interesting figures have re cently been compiled from official sodrces by-Lord Montague, editor of " The Car" (England), showing what tremendous strides the automobile in dustry has made in less than firteen years. It is computed that up to the end of December last there were 125,838. motor vehicles in Great Bri tain; 1,435,000 in the United States, and 366,011 in other countries, making a total of 2,226,849 motor vehicles in the leading countries of the world. This immense total is the measure of less than fifteen years' progress in an tomobilism-and here lies the marvel of the motor movement. Moreover, nine ty per cent. of these motor vehicles have been manufactured and used dur ing the last ten years. It is, therec fore, hard to realise what may be the number of motor vehicles in the world ten years hence, what their consump tion of liquid fuel. may be, what the cost of running them is likely to am ount to, and the number o...

Briefly, I believe that sue has no such will- or power; and I shall now try to give reasons forthat conclusion. . * The problem of over-population and a restricted land area is one that faces Japan.;at every turn, -and,; although making evey:effort-towards industrial expansion,. that in its turn brings new dangers :--..

HAWKERS FROM OUTSIDE. SHOULD THEY PAY A TAX. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 22 January 1914
HAWKERS FROM OUTSIDE. SHOULIQ THEY PAY A TAX.. The petition sent in too the Ararat Borough Council some time ago by the local frumterers, protestinig against haw kers of fruit and ice cream from outside being allowed, to come into the town and sell without-paying a tax, came up. for consideration at the meeting last night. The petition was fathered by Cr Irwin, who thought it was unfair that hawkers from outside should be allowed to come into the town and sell with out paying a tax. He moved "That Loe request of the petitioners be complied with as far as possible." Cr. Simpson seconded the motion. Cr Impey (jocularly)-And butchers should be included, too. Cr Simpson-Yes.
