UNFAIR RAIL CHARGES. CRUSH THE SMALL MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 21 March 1924

UNFAIR RAIL CHARGES. CRUSH THE SMALL MAN. A serious complaint is made against the Railway Department by Mr. Tom Elliott, of Bowral, regard ing anomalies in freight charges, which, he says, are dwarfing settle ment,- by driving small men in the market-gardening business off the land. 'Up our way is a great place for vegetables.' he said, 'and the trade has nearly always been in the hands of small men, or at least 75 per cent, of it. Well, now, supposing I am a small man, I can only afford to work my land myself, or perhaps with the aid of my eldest boy, and can never send more than 15c'wt. or a ton of cabbages to the market at a time. Because of this I am penal ised under the present railway freights 100 per cent, as against the man who can send down a truckload. Single ton lots are charged £1 Is. 9d., while the truck load at 5i tons is charged 10s. 5d. a ton. The eco nomic effect of this is to drive the small man off the land. No matter how efficient he is, he cannot afford to compe...

TEACHERS' SCHOOL OF . METHOD. AT BOWRAL HIGH SCHOOL The teachers from the various schools in the district, including Mit tagong, Lower Mittagong, Robert son, Colo Vale, Bargo, Glenquarry and other centres/ assembled at the Bowral H|gh School on Friday last at the invitation of Mr. Inspector G. Back, through MV. E. Lewis, head master. The idea was to hold a I one day School of Method, so that teachers could diseuss various educa tional problems and difficulties, and see the Bowral School at work. In opening the proceeding^, Mr. Back welcomed the teachers and gave an interesting address, empha sising the necessity of class testing by each individual teacher. The J teacher must be his own critic, and M conduct examinations covering a de- M finite scope of work. This meant m a review of the various subjects I taught; the methods adopted; the re- % Bults obtained, and expectations real- \ ised or not.

MITTAGONG MATTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 21 March 1924

MITTAGONG MATTERS. The annual meeting of the Foot ball Club is shortly to be held. From sporting circles information is gleaned that Mittagong is to have some new talent in the coming sea son, and the prospects look bright. The tender of Mr. F. Walker, of Granville, for the sum of £484, has been accepted by the Department of Education for alterations and iin Sroveraents to the Mittagong Pub c School. ? - The public-spiritedness of Mr. C. O'C. Murray in deciding to find the additional £500 required for the com pletion of the Municipal Golf Links on the same terms as the £1000, is to be admired. The Council .has good terms and low interest. The earlier the links are completed, the better for the financial position, as there will be no doubt of the links becoming popular with local and city golfers. Mr. A. Horniman, supervis ing engineer, has the work well in hand. Captain Terry, of the Fire Bri gade, reports that his station has been responsible for the sale of £112 worth of tickets i...
