CORRESPONDENCE. THIS PROPOSED SHIRE LOAN. A CRITICISM. (To the Editor of the "Farmers' Weekly."). [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 5 June 1914
CORRESPONDENCE. THIS PROPOSKR SHIRK LOAN. A CKITICISM. Cfo the Kditor of the " Farmers' Weekly."). Sir,-Having listened with much interest to Cr. O'Donnell's fine ad dress in fiivor of raising a 5,000 loan for the Kcrang Siiire, would | you, with your usual impartiality, i allow me to say a few words in criticism ? | As a Cohuua ratepayer I object to Cr. O'Donnell's proposed scheme on several grounds. I object, first i of all, Sir, bccause I think that biff I municipal loans are, in most cir j cumstances, bad and inequitable things in themselves, and should, : therefore, be avoided as much as possible on principle. A munici pal loan covering 25 or 30 years i interest and sinking fund, such as Cr. O'Donnelt proposes, gives the present ratepayers and property ! owners a great benefit for which taxpayers of ten, twenty and tnirty 1 years time have willy nilly to pay. I Take an example. A big loan is | floated to form say the Kerang town streets and footpaths. Im mediately these roads a...
