DECENTRALISATION. PORTLAND HARBOR SCHEME ONLY A STEP. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Observer and Normanby Advertiser — 8 June 1914

DECENTRALISAT1ION. PORTLAND HAR--OR SCHEME! ONLY A STEP. The "Horeham Times", of May 5, devotes a leading articlo to this subjec , chiefly as it relates to tihe mangemens of our State-owned railways. "Fromn tihe very inception of our railways," says the "Times," thoe policy pursued hIa3 rested upon an entirely mistaken basis. They have been made a much too fruitful source of revenue and profit, rather than tile de'e!opmentof the country, hus been the principul aim of their construc:ion. Our railways will never be run upon proper principles -those principles whtichl have been found to be the nmst beneficial and successful in all young countries re quiring vigorous deve!opment-until the traffic upon them is noc called upon to provide any return in the shape of profit; nothing-beyond what will pro vide for interest anti sinking fund, working expenses and maintenance. This is a question which has a direct and most intimate bearing upon the sabjjctofdecentralisation. The wants of tie cou...

ORIGINAL VERSES. THE BLACK SPECTRE. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Observer and Normanby Advertiser — 8 June 1914

ORIGINAL VERSES. THE BLACK SPECTRE. I wandered out amiongst the trees To enjoy the cool, refreshing breeze And contemplate the works divine Of Him who caused yon light to shine. The night is clesli', tl?le moon is bright; Thie stars are twinkling with delight; Nighthawk and bat are on t6o wing, And crickets too do cheerily sing. The miosquito also sounds hlier lhorn; The dingo's lhowl is lheard upon thie hlill, For uan, his deadly foe, is still, And hlie can roam about at will And timid sheep awih terror fill.

(To the Editor:) Sir,--With reference to the very in teresting articles by "Electric Light" anrd ]"Pr.ogess," which appeared in the "Observer'! of June 4, I think it is time that the people of Portland should make a demand for the improvement and modernization of the town. "Why does not Portland go ahead ?' has been the question for many years. Portland will never advance while we hang so persistently'to antiquated m'eans and methods. Gas, as an il'uminant, has seen its day, and if Portland is ever to make forward strides it is by Ihe seizing of such valuable opportunities as that which is even now presented by the decision of the Council to borrow £3000 for "patching up" and extend ing our nredievally appointed gasworks. Why not instead invest the money in an electric lighting plant? The gas works could be retain...

This fear has communicated itself to tile residents of the South East, to sunch an extent, it is .aid(, that an indigna! tion meeting was isuggested.
