HEYWOOD. September 21. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 22 September 1876

HEYWOOD. (0tRo0 OUR OWN Oo5Rltst'ONnENT.) September 21. A lively discussion lins taken place of late as to whether the dam which has so long been a feature ill our river is or is not injurious to the public Illith. Wlhen it was first eon structedl it was regarded ar a positive blessing on all hands, not to the township alone but to the entire district, and there can be no doubt but that in more than one instance it proved the salvation of many a tirsty brhead of travelling stock and a "joy for ever" to weary working bullocks. The novelty, how ever, has worn off and in its walke has followed an accumulation of filth which, being the collection of many years, delights not on a warm summer's day the olfactory nerves of our sensitive townspeople, and so tile quos tlon has arisen whether the river oughlt to be damned or the damn which dams it. The wordy war ihas givcen rise to some little unpleasantness, but to me the remedy seems simple enough. The river, prior to the daim era, was ofte...
