No Title [Newspaper Article] — Flemington Spectator — 22 January 1914
That there is a growing c'.rnc, ant all over the world with conditions gi cerationi of the past have readily accepted with perfect equanimity, is -a ma. *-r of common knowledge, and has .:cae-ed to evoke very much comment, or cause alyv thing like consternation. As for dissatis faction in respect to the remuneration of toil-both manual and mental-and the heartburnings whichl at times pretty well develop into "envy, hatred, and malice" regarding the unequal distribution of wealth-they are both familiar features of the age in which we live, and things we hear of and read about day by day. "The love of money is the root of all evil" wrote the Apostle, and certainly the "haste to be rich" is at the bottom of much of our modern turmoil and trouble. Gold is emphatically the God of the twentieth century, and the saying "money talks" is true at the present time in a :sense that could hardly be stronger. Yet the attitude of the multitude towards the rich ones of the earth is strangely two fo...

COLLECTING RATES IN TWO MOITIES ADVOCATED. TO SAVE OVERDRAFT. In ptaee of the old system followe: slavishly for so many years by the coon cillors of building up an overdraft fron October to JTune to pirovide for curren expenses. the collection of rates half yearly would provide a fund of ready toneo to carry out a systematic policy of public works. It is readily incler stundalhe that .when it coUncilor, seet the overdraft standing at £5000 or' £600 in February that hle is not going It move that any large undertaking slhall he put in hanId. 0n iatiter tor hwgreat tl need. There is something essentially business-like in collecting rates half searl. For one thing it would save tie council £250 on overdraft interest. Tlic Metropolitai Board andl thie Melbourne City Council collect their rates half-year ly, and keep going on a continuons pot icy of liublic iortks. One can imagine what the position would be of the man in ordinary business who allowed his nc. counts to accumulate andl coll...

OUR CONTEMPORARIES "THE FOOTSCRAY ADVERTISER." ESSENDON TO WILLIAMSTOWN TRAMWAY PROPOSAL. [Newspaper Article] — Flemington Spectator — 22 January 1914
DOUR CONTEMPORARIES "THE FOOTSCRAY ADVERT1IBER." ESSENDON TO WILLIAMIITOWN TRAMWAY PROPOSAL. Tile longer the. roposal to provide tram ways between Essendon and Williams town, via Faotscray, is delayed the lesi chance there is of the scheme ever being gone on with. In 1916, two years from ttow. the cable trains. of Melbourne and suburbs wsill- tall into the hands of some central public authority--either munici pal or governmental-and when that lhap. Pens all new proposals will have to be sanctioned and carried out by that body. But in taking over existing tramways the authority entrusted with them will be in duty bound to take over all tram way schemes the promoters of which ap pear to tmean business, and it is therefore necessary that the councils concerned sholdl get thleir pro osals ans well for ward as possible. The conference which met two or three times made itself a bit ridiculous by selecting all out of the way and round-about route that no salle; business-like eppert would e...

FOOTSCRAY FOOTBALL CLUB. DLSGUSTED OFBJCERS CONTEMPLATE RETIREMENT. IS THE GREED OF PLAYERS THE 'CAUSE? According to inlpired press reports tlhe Footscray Football Club is threatened. as it was similarly threatened last year. with the loss of three important oflicers in Messrs. A. Greenwood (secretary), A. Turnrer (treasurer). and V. B. Hyatt (as sistant secretary), and tirer is no doubt that their places will be hard to fill. Probalbly, if it is the Intentionr of tIe gentlemen to retire from the positions they have held with considerable success. they have good reason for their action, but the excuse put forward-that they are discouraged by the lack . of financial as sistanc by supporters o -the etulu-is one that is hardly fair to supporters. Thonuglh the oflirial gures hve not yet been published, it will probably be found that ths Footscray club had more revenue last season than any other Association club, arid in those riorumstances to say thtat sutplporters of tIhe club wanted t...

AN EXPANDING REVENUE. FOOTSCIAY'S NOVEL SCHEME OF ECONOMY. COUNCIL EMPLOYS NATURE'S SCAVENGER. There are some ratepayers who can not understand how it is that, if the affairs of the city were effectively ad ainistered five years ago on a gross rev enue of £18,000, the press advocate of high vtluations and high rates contensts that it is now inopossible to dto practical ly the same work on a as 4d rate, that. with othler income will realise ia revenue this year of £34,000. Peottle have been unkind enough to unthinkingly aver that tie reason is that money is fritteed away, but tthere are, to confouind tlIs allegation, evidences on alt sides ef ecqo omlost moansgemenst. Take the work of street swveleing for instance. Years ago the council perotitted its staff to not ont, ly sweel the channels. hbt to go to tte explense of carting the sweelings away rut it seens that this wtil wholly oir negessary: and to-d:iy aivantage is takles of tau strong winds that blow to io tMe remonving.
