  • 5 Jun 1928, DEFECTIVE APPLES ON SALE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ARGUS. Sir,—The letters of Dr McArthur and "Observer," appearing on May 30 and 31 respectively touch on a subject of the greatest importance to orchardists. Undoubtedly the present unsatisfactorty state of affairs, on the Melbourne market at least, has been largely if not entirely contributed to by the methods (or rather lack of methods) of the man who, having a few old miserable apple trees on his small farm, carts in a quantity of fruit on each visit made to the city, probably by-weekly. This individual presumably is ignorant of the principles of " frenzied finance " and thinks because he gathered the fruit himself, put it into any old case, stacked it on his waggon, and carted it into the city, 10 or more miles distant, that at 1/ or 1/6 a case he feels he is "well ahead of it." To such an individual I would say that based on a 3,500 case crop this season, it has cost me 7/9 per case to produce and market (selling costs not included). To prevent this type of person from playing havoc with the industry, I think some form of legistiation should be introduced. Even the much-debated orchard-tax of £1 per acre (or part thereof), would effectually stop his operations. These budding Rockefellers too, are mostly responsible for the flood of "windfalls" thrown on the market at the beginning of each season. Fancy windfalls, and Jonathans at that being put on the market in a season such is this. Early in February the Western Market was loaded with them to the detriment of prime quality earlier varieties. When are we going to organise and get the industry moving on sane business lines?—Yours, FRANK GRIFFIN. Upper Beaconsfield, May 31.33

  • 24 Jun 1930, HARDWOOD FRUIT CASES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ARGUS.
    Sir,-Mr. G. J. Aldwinckle is entitled to prefer hardwood to softwood cases, but why adopt such a selfish attitude as to want to penalise further the great number of growers - probably a majority - who prefer softwood, in hoping that a further duty will be imposed on their importation? One reason advanced - that Victorian millers should be given a chance to show what they can do - sounds rather feeble when they have had the field entirely to themselves for more than 30 years and cannot yet produce anything better than that provided this season. Mr. Aldwinckle has either been particularly fortunate in ob- taining perfect cases or else he is very easily satisfied. Why should a grower not use a softwood case if, in his opinion, it presents his product in a more attractive form? Whether the fruit brings more in one container that the other is beside the question. Naturally the user of the more expensive case hopes to obtain a better price. Many factors over which neither the grower nor agent has any control regulate the price realised on home markets.

Knox, a number of their friends from Upper Beaconsfield and the surrounding districts, and also Melbourne were present at the delightful dance held in the Assembly Hall, Upper Beaconsfield, on Friday evening, June 22. The guest of the evening was Miss K. Bird, cousin of the hostess, who is on a visit from England, and the dance was given in honor of her twenty-first birthday. The supper room of the hall was converted into a cosy lounge, with easy chairs, carpets, and a glowing fire. Bridge tables were provided for non-dancers. On a large table in the supper-room was arranged a buffet supper.
    The hall was gaily decked with cerise and violet streamers festooned from a centrepiece arranged with hoops of paper flowers of the same color and greenery. Tall oriental lamps and festoons of greenery, with cerise flowers, made a very effective screen round the dias, on which the musicians were seated. Mr. K. R. Pinkerton (of Berwick) was responsible for the artistic decorations of the hall. At 10 p.m. the guests retired to Salisbury House, opposite the hall, to partake of a sit-down supper.
    After midnight a large birthday cake, with twenty-one candles burning brightly on it, was carried into the hall, and cut by Miss Bird. The hostess (Mrs. G. H. Knox) wore a gracefully draped frock of apricot changeable taffeta, caught at the side with monkey fur: she carried an Early Victorian posy of autumn tints. Miss K. Bird was dressed in dainty mauve taffeta, with panels of Valenciennes lace, and a deep collar of georgette edged with similar lace.
    Among the guests present were.—Messrs. R. Knox (Melbourne), Dare (Melbourne), Lester, Beauchamp, Capt. Tate, Messrs. J. F. Sturken, Bunt, Day, K. R. Pinkerton, J. Swords, R. Glover, Berglund, Carsewell, Lorimer, Brown, McBride, E. Blain, Seely, Harvey Smith, Cant, Reed, Lester, Miss Margaret Clarke (Melbourne), flame-colored crepe de chine, with tulle pointed overskirt.

  • 28 Jun 1926, BEACONSFIELD. The Rev. T. W. Greenwood, of Chelsea, has accepted a call from the Beaconsfield and district Congregational Church, and expects to begin his work in July.7
  • 21 Jan 1932, One of the worst bush fires in the memory of the oldest residents occurred here on Friday and Saturday, when a devastating fire swept over the district. On Friday, a fire, which had been burning in the scrub, fanned by a strong north wind, menaced the residence of Mr. McMillan, and in response to a call for help, about 50 men were soon engaged in a fierce fight to save the house and outbuildings. This they managed to do, and the fire then jumped the main road and threatened the residence of the Misses McLean; a break was burned, and the house was safe. On Saturday morning another fire commenced near Miss McLean’s boundary fence, and soon the residences of Messrs. Blair, Boker and Gilpin, and a number of others were in danger. A large band of willing workers managed to save the houses, but unfortunately they could not save the fine lemon orchard of Mr. McMillan, which was destroyed, also a week-end residence of Mr. Harkins. The heat was so great when the place got alight that it was im possible to get near it. In the after noon a sudden change of wind to the south caused the township to be menaced, and a desperate call for help was sent out, and in reply volunteers from Berwick, Narre Warren and Dandenong came to augment the local Bush Fire Brigade, until there were over 200 men, under the direction of Constable Barrett, and other leaders, engaged in the desperate effort to save the homes of Madame Montigue, Messrs. McBride, McDonald, Harvey-Smith, Rev. T. Greenwood, Robinson, J. Campbell, Major Campbell, Miss Elliott, J. Deville, C. Ellis, Claydon, Wright, Binding and Brown. The worst fight was at “Kyogle,” Mr. McDonald’s house; at one time it was felt that this fine residence would go, but the determined fight put up by the willing workers saved it. Here it was that anxiety was felt for one band who had become surrounded by flames, but they managed to get clear, although some of them succumbed to heat and smoke after getting out. The fine garden and plantation of Major Campbell was swept by the fire, despite the efforts of the workers, and hundreds of pounds worth of valuable plants and trees were destroyed, and the fine house was only saved by the superhuman efforts of the fire fighters. Miss Elliott’s house got alight, and part of the roof had to be stripped off before the fire could be put out. Mr. Ellis had the fence and pavilion attached to his tennis court destroyed, and the fire swept through his orchard, only being stopped within a few feet of the house. The house of Mr. Wright was saved by burning a break, as was Mr. Brown’s house and lemon orchard.
    On Sunday afternoon a small fire developed in Salisbury Gully, but it was soon got under control; whilst this was being put out an urgent call for help came from “The Towers,” Mr. Berglund’s property. A large body of men were rushed out, and the fire was got under control before very much damage was done. On Sunday a fire, which had started on the Saturday in Cordner’s Gully, crossed the Officer rd., and threatened the orchard of Mr. F. Love, but it was kept out, and, with the exception of the loss of some fencing, not very much damage was done.8
  • 8 Nov 1934, The Rev. Mr. Greenwood and Mrs. Greenwood have gone to Dromana for their annual holiday. Mr. Smith, of North Clyde, has generously offered to conduct services for Mr. Greenwood during his absence.9

  • 21 Dec 1933, OBITUARY WM. J. HOLMES.
    The death of Mr. William J. Holmes, at the age of 67 years, occurred at his residence, “Clovelly,” Beaconsfield Upper, on Saturday, December 9. The deceased, who was born at Wagga, New South Wales, went to the Glen Wills and Omeo district when a very young man, and for some years followed the occupation of a miner there. He also worked at the famous Mount Lyell mine (Tasmania) as a shift boss, for a time. Coming to Beaconsfield about 20 years ago, he followed various occupations, until two years ago, when his health gave way, and he was an invalid from then until the time of his death. He married a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Nixon, and leaves a widow, four daughters and three sons to mourn their loss. The funeral took place in the Berwick cemetery on Sunday.
    The Rev. T. Greenwood conducted the service at the graveside, and the funeral arrangements were carried out by Mr. J. Grant, of Berwick.13
