To the Editor of the "Advocate." [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 16 August 1924
To the Editor of the "Advocate." Sir,-In your issue of the 2nd inst. it is stated in connection with the opening of a new street in Sunshine that no one appears to know why the old streets bear the names of English counties.' This matter belongs to the early history of Braybrook and Mel bourne. Melbourne's early days were often marked by sectarian strife, and the old slogans of the Mother Land were sounded around and a few heads cracked occasionally. Three gentle men named Thorpe, Marish and Irish albout 1850 met to form an association, with the view of founding a settle ment where there would be no cause for sectarian strife. Their motto was "No Irish need apply." They soon had numerous applications to join, and it. was decided to purchase a section of land from the Sydney Government at the usual price then of country land-'one pound per acre. After the initial expenses were met each member received one acre for each pound subscribed, and a building allotment in the township to be ...
STREET NAMES To the Editor "Sunshine Advocate." [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 16 August 1924
STREET NAMES" To the Editor "Sunshine Advocate." Sir,-Your recent reference to the titles given to the streets in Sunshine compels me to endorse fully what has been already said. My attention has been drawn to a small township sub division which has produced three streets named Dorothy, Una and Alice. I do not know whether these streets are named after some one's estimable daughters- or after some of his prize poultry, and I do not care. I think it more than a passing grievance to have the streets of our thriving town saddled with such titles, lacking entirely in sense or distinction. As those in autho rity appear unconcerned in the matter I suggest that a movement be made to have the local street names recon sidered, and a committee appointed to decide what names shall be altered and what retained. One of Melbourne tho roughfares was altered from Stephen to Exhibition, hence there is ample precedent. I quite agree that native names should be more freely used. Yonrs, &c., A....

OBITUARY. General regret was expressed when it became known that Mr Tom Downing, late of Fraser Street, Sunshine, had passed away oh Wednesday morning.

A Change of Ownership [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 16 August 1924
A Change of Ownership No doubt mnany will regret that Mr J. D.. Lawrie is relinquishing his carrying business. This progressIrv business has almost become a part of Sunshine's commercial activities, but the business is to be continued as heretofore, by R. Smith; and the same prompt delivery service will be assured. Mr L.awrie is another illustration of that saying, " Sailors are Jacks of all trades. " Un til coming here he had been to sea since boyhood, and served with distinction in naval service during the war. It is un derstood that he does not contemplate leaving Sunshine, but hopes to start in another line of business locally, of which full particulars will be advertised in due cburse. A Chicago woman shot her husband when he wouldn't go to church. She was going to get him to heaven one way or another.
