  • 28 Jan 1932, BEACONSFIELD UPPER. Early last week bush fires broke out again. On Tuesday morning a call came from Montuna, to subdue a fire there, that was threatening a number of week-end homes. The Bush Fire Brigade burnt a break, but not, unfortunately, until portions of Mr. Geo. Grant’s orchard had been destroyed. Whilst they were away an other call came for help to quell a fire that had broken out on Judge Bevan’s property, and which threatened Mrs. Wheeler’s cottage and Mr. F. Funnell’s orchard; however, it was “got under’’ before much damage was done. In the afternoon a fire started on Dr. McArthur’s property, and, fanned by a strong wind, it swept over a big tract of country. Dr. McArthur’s sheds and outbuildings were only saved, after hard work. The fire then got into Mr. G. Lewis’s place, and all his sheds, including carts, harness and implements' were destroyed, and the house was saved with great difficulty. Whilst the fighters were concentrating their efforts to save Mr Lewis's house, the fire swept on to Mrs. Bennett’s whose house was destroyed. Mr. Morgan’s large sheds were destroyed, and one corner of his house was burned before the fire could be checked. All the valuable orchard implements, including a power spray pump, was destroyed in Mr. Morgan’s sheds. Another fire broke out at the head of the Cardinia Creek and burnt all the outbuildings, including a detached kitchen, at Mr. Ladds; the house was only saved after a hard fight. On Wednesday a fire started in the gully opposite Mr. Armstrong’s, and a break had to be burnt to save Mrs. Renfries, Miss McConachie’s and Messrs. Armstrong and Landor’s houses, as the wind was blowing fairly strong. Some members of the brigade were on duty all night to prevent the fire spreading to Messrs Ballanytyne’s, Walker’s, and Baxter’s places. On Sunday night the brigade was called out to burn a break to save Mr. Walker’s fine fernery from being destroyed, as a fire was coming up the Haunted Gully.19

  • 19 Jun 1930, ACCIDENT AT BEACONSFIELD. What might have resulted in a very serious accident occurred on the Prince’s Highway, half a mile on the east side Beaconsfield, at 4.30 p.m. on the 7th June.
    Miss Gladys Clements, of Berwick, was driving a pony and jinker, and, in attempting to cross Prince’s Highway, the horse was struck under the neck and shoulders with a motor car, travelling at a fast rate of speed.
    The shafts of the jinker were broken, and the horse, receiving a deep gash in the chest, fell on the-roadway, and later had to be destroyed. After striking the horse the car swerved to the side of the road, mounted a deep gutter, travelled along a narrow strip of land between the road and a deep drain for 50 yards, then came back to the roadway and came to a stand still 78 yards from where it struck the horse.
    The car wag driven by John Morrison, of Wonthaggi. He had three passengers with him, and each of them received minor cuts from the broken windscreen, and were treated by Dr. Langmore, of Berwick. Miss Clements and a child which was in the jinker were not injured. Morrison was driving a small Morris Minor car, which was badly damaged. First Constable Walters is making enquiries.14
