Motorists Beware [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 21 March 1914

Motorists Beware ur item p brought before the Council on Monday evening the dangerous.practice of motorcyclists rushing up Church-street Hill from Swan-street at terrific speed.

The motorists, in order to get sufficient impetus to negotiate the hill, get '. full steam ahead." and at about 50 miles an hour rush on heedless of the risk thej- run to themselves and others.

That Right-of-way. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 21 March 1914

That Right-of-way. jLiie question of a 4ft right-of way in the Nortli Ward over which much, discussion took place at a previous meeting, came up for settlement at the Council meeting on Monday evening last. The Surveyor submitted a plan showing how the land could be divided to allow for a 10ft right-of-way as requited by'the Health Act Or Street moved:-''That the 4ft right of way as at present set out be allowed to remain." He con sidered that every councillor should visit the place and not be guided by a few members comprising the rights-of-way committee. An amendment by Cr Kemp, seconded by Or Alexander-"That Air Mahoney be required to set out a 10ft right-of-way in compliance with the law "-was carried, Cr Street alone voting against it. A further amendment by Cr Bell that the matter be adjourned 11 was also negatived, and the motion insisting on the owner (ft!r Mahony) being required to set out: a 10ft right of-way in compliance with the act, carried.

"This man," states Mr. Stewart, "was the most mysterious individual I have ever met. We came upon him one even ing after we had been walking through the forest for twelve hours, and were soaked to the skin by a terrible storm of rain accompanied by thunder and lightning. We march ed in the direction in whidh we thought the village ought to be situated, when we saw the figure of an elderly man coming towards us. The carriers, who were in front, shouted that it was a white man ; but when he came near he shouted in the language of the natives, and indeed he could speak that tongue better than English. He took us to the village wte were searching for, and we then discovered that he was a sort of king amonf the people. "That night we spoke to him as we sat round the camp fire before the...

THE ROMANCE OF RUBBER. * Since the famous boom of a couple of years ago, when everybody, was putting his surplus cash on the product - of the hevea J tree, buying* and selling shares in wonderful plantations somewhere in the Tro pics, rubber has been forgotten by the general public. But it will again monopolise pub lic interest one of these days, when the fi.?ht that is silently progress ing between the wild rubber of the Amazon and the cultivated rubber of the Eastern Tropics comes to an issue. Few people, who merely look on rubber as at once a useful every day article and a good investment, ever realise that it is one of the new'est as well as the oldest of for est products. Fifteenth century Spaniards used to make unroman tic-looking hidalgos of themselves in waterproof garments made from rubber sap in Old Mexico. Yet it is only about a dozen years ago that the seedlings surreptitiously brought from Brazil, coaxed into growing under glass at Kew Gar dens, and afterwards transplan...
