The Standard. FRIDAY, JUNE 3, 1921. Do Ratepayers Care ? [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 3 June 1921
'. stiitnbarb. FRIDAY, JUNE 3, 1921. Do Ratepayers Care ? Yesterda) the Council of the Shire of Frank-ton and Hastings decided to acquire the celebrated electric light onutfit at Fran ston. When the con tract is signed, which will probably be some time next week, a deposit of £500 will be paid, and later on other payments, totalling something like £4000. will have to be' met. This bold step has been taken as the result of a conference between the Electri city Commissioners, the Frankston Gas and Electric Light Company and the Council. It can be reasonably assumed that the Council is not looking forward with any degree of pleasure to the handling of its new possession. Cr Wells does not like the idea at all. He emphatically stated that he would not give £100 for the whole turn out, and none of his colleagues seemed anxious to out bid him in the matter of personal speculation. The Council, quite ob viously, is not acting on its own judgment It is being influenced largely by the views ...

Another Scheme Wanted [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 3 June 1921
Another Scheme Wanted The scheme suggested for the improvement of Kananook Creek has been condemned by the Govern? ment. The mattor was before the Council yesterday, as will be seen from the report appearing in another column, and on Saturday (to morrow) night a special meeting of the Seaford " Progress Association will be held to consider the position. Nearly 12 months ago the Minister for Public Works assured a large deputation from this district that the creek would receive attention. All he asked was that the offcers of his department be allowed a week or two , in which to verify the figures submitted by the shire.engineer, NAr A. K. T. Sambell. This promise received tardy fulfilment and it was only after much letter writing and agitating on the part of the Seaford Progress Association that the De partment finally sent an engineer to inspect the creek. It is to be hoped that the Department, having con. demned the scheme proposed, will -ome forward'with some practicable suggestio...

Shire Council Matters I Mr Joseph Unthank Predicts Elaborate Shire Hall To "the Editor. Sir,-We ratepayers of the Centre and East Ridings learn through the Press that the "North- Riding have bees successful in their request to the Minister'of Lidsidsn i having a' new riding, viz MtEliza, a?fsihed to Frankstou ; further, we note the Minister's remarks re the population of the North 'Riding being about the same as the East and Ceutr9"combln ed. I myself think it is decidedly a good 'argument' in faivor of forming another:riding:'. But, with tho feel ing that now exists at the council table, the positiona of the East "and' Centre Riding's representatives will, to my mind,, be a farce. What with selling the'Shire IHall, ?ppolitlon to dispensing with' soeme of "ou' highly paid oficers, it will-be a' oee of down and out for the Centre.and East. But what a bonza little shire Franketon. Seaford and the 'unew riding would create ? There would then' be no op position about shire halls or pet ...
CRIB POINT [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 10 June 1921
CRIB POINT Tas-nania has the same troubles as we, and one paramount source'ofan noyance is the irregularity of the mail delivery duiring industrial trouble. Tasmanians are now advocating that the Bass Strait service be run from Westernport to Beauty Point, on the Tamar, which would result in a sav ing of several hours. .At the present time the 40 miles on the Tamar to Launceston usually takes 2} hours, and the trip from the Heads t~ the Yarra- takes longer, so by .ntilislig the railways at each end, thereowould he a considerable saving of time. An old ship with an interesting history has arrived at the Naval Base, Crib Point. 'Th'is Is the Countess of Hopetoun, a torpedo boat, which was a unit of the old Victorian navy in pre Federatious days. 'She will be used asea depiot ship at the bag?'.

The Seaford Foreshore To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 10 June 1921
The Seaford Foreshore To the Editor. It is with the utmost surprise I see by your current issue that the Frankston Council has- decided to ask the Mtinister of Lands to set aside 5 acres of foreshore.in Seaford as a recreation reserve.. It is true that the "Standard" of May 27th reported that the matter had been discussed at a meeting 'of the .Sea: ford Progress Association, but. it was not stated thait any motioii' to the above effect was carried. 1I was not present at' that meeting,i and regret very much the 'Association should have lent its sulport to such action. If a recreation ireserve is w?nted (and I believe the district' ,should have one) our foreshore should ?iot be encioached upon: The Borouigh of Carrum has, just' dealt with' similar need in the Chelse'a: disticlt, but it has bought 10. acres" at £I50 per acre for the purpose.

As Others See Us A Visitor from a Distant Country Eulogistic To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 10 June 1921
As Others See Us A Visitor from a Distant Country Eulogistic To the Editor. Sir,-I had set out the other day to see the district, and took my cue from the tingar post near the Post Office and the shore end of the main street. Step by step along the Hast ings Road, I could not but admire the view here. Practically in the virgin bush. I stood on an excellent road within 25 miles of Melbourne. The vista reminded me of a distant panorama the other aide of the equa to:. The difference was that the barreness of that land had driven ?any of its best sons to this side of the globe `for the "glorious sake of being independent." On the way, I h til seen the children at physical drill in the playground, living pic tures of what children ought to be. There they braced their arms and limbs in the open air, tempered by the ocean, se content and happy as a11 parents would wish their boys and girls to look under the most favor able conditions. The stranger to Australia often wonders what element gi...
