CONFLICTING INTERESTS, ETC. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 14 September 1917

CONFLICTING INTERESTS, ETC. A Council representative at election time has a very hard task to pursue to retain his seat if by any mistake on his part he incorrectly measures a majority or minority who is in favour of a certain scheme or work which is popular or unpopular, as the case may be, according to benefits to be received or unreceived by, the majority or minor- ity. The greatest good for the greatest number is the motto for the average politician. Conservatives, Liberals, and Labor alike all subscribe to that idea. The economic mistakes made years ago by an engineer or surveyor cannot be helped very well by any body of men, whether it is Charlie Bath, Joe Smedley, or anybody else. The Great Slide, as it is known, has been slipping away through wet weather and heavy traffic, and the Council in their wisdom has temporarily closed the track. As an observer, I think they have done quite right. But it does not suit the milling interests. It is to be regretted that the teams and mi...

As to his allegation that there is a balance of £410. owing to him, the firm's books show that no such sum (if any) is owing to him, but as a receiver has.been appointed by the Court to deal with the firm's accounts, this matter will be investi gated by him in duo course.
