TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh and Caulfield Times Mulgrave and Ferntree Gully Guardian — 27 June 1914

TO THE EDITOR. Sir,--With your kind permission I would like t, draw public opinion to the mismxnagement of some of our present councilors. I am sure they must admit we have not got six yards of decent footpaths or roads in the whole Borough. and when asked to remedy same; the reply has been no funds available at present, still there are funds to the tune of £600 or .6700 (and goodness knows how much more) to purchase a roller, when, if half the cost of this article was used for making footpaths, which would not require a steam roller, also lighting same, would add con siderably more attraction to our out-of-date borough; this hasty expenditure of our funds is un warranted. At the present rate we are receiving metal it will take five or six years to get five or six fgousaud yards, consequently there will be little or nothing to roll. I am, etc., DISGUSTED RATEPAYER. 23/6114.

Oakleiigh, Dra~snatic3 socaiety "THE SCHEMERS." NIOHT OF FUN AND FROLIC. On Tuesday evening the above Society played in the Me banlcs' Hall to a good house the 3-act comedy, "The Schemers." It is identical with a composition which, wherever it has been played, has convulsed the audiences with laughter and sustained interest to the end. It never flags, and as the plot is revealed and new situations arise the general amuse ment becomes chronic-in a word, it is irresistibly funny and sparkles with wit and humor. The production on Tuesday evening well sustained the prestige of the Society's performing merm bers, who acted so well their re spective parts that individual com ment would be invidious. The cast was as follows:--Mr Stephen Spettigue (a fiery old gentleman), Mr L. D. Berry ; Sir Francis Chesney (from India), Mr A. Traill ; Jack Chesney, Mr J. O'Sullivan : Charlie Wickham, Mr N.

Our Letter Box. THlE BOROUGH ROLLER. To T'IE EDITOR. Sir,-Being present at our coun cil meeting on Friday last, hearing debates re the purchase of a Road Roller, one could not help noticing the intensive argument of our coun cillors who were in favor of the purchase. I-Iad those councillors given the purchasing powers a little more time and consideration, they would have found it was possible to have purchased an up to-date and modern roller for far less cost. I have got the informa tion accurately; they need not have gone further than the City of Prah ra-, who have a new up-to-date combined motor and steam roller weighted at 8 tons, with a carry ing capacity of another 3 tons, which is used for metal and drops same at had places on road and rolls it at the same time; this new, up-to-date roller costing .600 only. If this extravagant expendi ture is allowed to go on, there must certainly be increased taxa tio-, and still no decent roads or footpaths in our Borough, There is also one...
