NORTHERN TRAMWAY EXTENSION. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 21 February 1914

NORTHERN TRAMWAY EXTEN SION. TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—Being u resident of the west ward, and one of those who signed the petition in favor of the proposed electric tram, which I did, not that I was with the petitioners, but simply that I always make it a practice to sign any request that comes along; during the period that this agitation has been in force, 1 have met numerous ratepayers of the central and west wards who are totally opposed to this wild scheme. Probably if the signed lists were scrutinized, it would be found that nearly 30 per cent, were not on the last roll issued, so 1 uphold the action of the three council lors by not agreeing to the League's intimution to resign and contest their seats, which would entail unnecessary expense, because there is not the slight est doubt they would again be returned with larger majorities than before. You will notice that the most promin ent members of the committee are living in the vicinity of St. George's road, so it follows that it is...

Konml of Tokyo, In "The Westminster Gazette.") .It will, I feci sure, interest, nnd may, perhaps, surprise, my European friends to Hear that the enlightened section ot my Japaneso compatriots consider the whites to be driven by a great semi conscious Instinct " Back to the East!" This, they think. Is perhaps due to a faint recollection that' the forefathers of the Europeans were originally Cen tral Asian emigrants, or to an inborn yearning for the immense riches o£ the ancient, world. The Crusades were an early -manifestation of "this hidden in stinct.

DOMESTIC ECONOMY SERVANT SAVED £2000. A pleasing, and evidently authentic, story comes from Baltimore about a family servant, says tho New York "Nil tlon." She came from Germany twenty seven yfears ago, has lived with one Baltimore family ever since, and now returns to Germany with the tidy sum of nearly £2000, accumulated by steady saving-. Particulars as to wages are wanting, but it is evident that she has been having all these years a comfortable home and has been thor oughly appreciated in the household in which she lived. It la not improbable that her wages have been somewhat more liberal than usual, and that she has received pre sents that have helped her to economise in the matter of dress. But it is (o be noted at once that there is nothing in the least marvellous about the tale. There are thousands of servants who, without sacrificing the requirements of comfort or self-reapect, and without failing to live up to a very good stand ard of appearance as to clothing, could put ...
