CORRESPONDENCE We do not necessarily identify ourselves with the opinions expressed by our correspondents. UNSEWERED FACTORIES. To the Editor of the "Advertiser." [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 10 January 1914
CORRESPONDENCE We do not noeessarily identify oaurclvcs with the opinions axprnsod by our corrospondents, UNSEWERED FACTORIES, To the Editor oi the "Advertiser." Sin,-About five weeks ago I wrote to the Town Inspector about the in sanitary stato of several iron industries in Williamstown, but as no notice up to the present Ihas been taken, I now through your your always obliging paper desire th draw the attention of the ratepayers to this disgraceful state of sffaira, When I wrote to the In spector I used a nom-de-plurme as I had no desire to advertise, or make a martyr of mynalf, Anyhow I think it is quite sulflicient to state I am a rate. payer and surely justified in making this complaint. As a description of some of the places in question would not make pleasant reading I will for. bear. Why should thsee wealthy em. ployera of labor escape nowerago ex penses, when overy rich or poor pro. perty holder in Williamatown has been compelled to comply with the law. Trusting these few l...

SIZE OF STEAMSHIPS. 20,000 TONNER FOR AUSTRALIA, ENTERPRISE OF THE BLUE FUNNEL LINE. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 10 January 1914
L. UUU 'Lrt INilLtt ri() U AULCLtAIA A, ENTIERPRIUFE Oi' TIlE BLUE FUNNEL LINE, IDuRING the year 19013, there was keen competittion for the honor of own ing the largest steamship trading with Australia. The Canadian Australian liner, Niagara, of 1:l,4i.; tons, eclipsed everything until the blue funnel liner, Nestor, 1..l,301 tons, came; but the Nestor went down before the White Star liner Ceramic, of 15,;00 tons, It was thought the rivalry would stop there, for the White Star line was the first to put the mail steamers in the shade and there appeared no likelihood of any challenger appearing on the ac tie. HIowever, the Ceramic will shoatly have to strike her colors, for tHolt's Illue Funnel line has decided to build two st:amers of 20,000 tons each.

THE TOWN HALL SITE. To the Editor of the "Advertiser." [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 10 January 1914
THE TOWN I-TALL SITE, To the Editor of the "Advertisar." Stn,-Sineo the one and only claim for the conversion of Lyons street gardens, at the corner of Ferguson street and Melbourne road, into a Town Hall site is that it is central, let us consider that claim for a moment, It will be ad mitted that Kororoit Creek toad is an extension of Ferguson street, Now, Kororoit Greek road has the vacant rifle ranges fronting it on one side and the untenanted workshops site, extend ing to Mason street, on the other, Where, then, does all the population comne in ? It is all on the other side of the railway line ; but the only street running parallel with Melbourne road west of Ferguson street Is Power street. These facts show that the site proposed occupies a corner, not a centre, of settlement. I could name six better 6itei,-Yours, NUFFI 81D.
CRUELTY TO A HORSE. To the Editor of the "Advertiser." [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 10 January 1914
CRUELTY TO A HORSE, To the Editor of the "Advertiser." SIR,-Passing down the street towards the piers over two weeks ago, and 05. srving some people intently watching a poor old horse, I ntle it my busi ness like all inquisitive women to find out what was the trouble. The poor old animal had one of its legs broken or injured beyond repair, so that it had to be destroyed. The accident hap Pened about noon and when I passed starnalig on tnrce tlgs waiting for the uentence to be carried out. I did not wait to see it destroyed, therefore I do not know how rnuch longer it was tortured. Surely it did not take 4 hours to get a veterinary surgeon's opinion, or did they have t., send 50 miles away for a special gunt; a tman \with a rifle could have been on the spot in ten mintutes.,-- ours, HUMANE,
A YARRA BRIDGE. MOTION BY COUNCILLOR JOSEPHSON. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 10 January 1914
A YARIA BilIDOU MOTION BY COUNOIrILLO JOSliPtlON, COUINCILLOR Josephson intends to give notice of motion that ,£100,000 be borrowed for the erection of a bridge across the Yarna, The Council has a fairly big loan proposition in hand at present and may be disposed to get it out of the way before seriously taking up the bridge question ; but an improvement on the present ferry is a task that will have to be faced in the immediate future. The advent of motor buses will find out the sore places in the present ferry. The vessel will be paid for next year and in the meantime the necessity of placing her on the scrap heap need not be lost sight of Either a self propelled vessel or a moving bridge, according to the expert advice so far received, is well within the Council's means, Instead of committing the Council to a loan before it had made up its mind what it intended to do, Councillor Josephson would be wiser in moving that a prize of £100 be offered for the best design. It may be that ...
