ELSTERNWICK. [Newspaper Article] — Elsternwick Leader and East Brighton, ... — 16 July 1887

ELSTERNWICK. VERY rapid improvements have been made in this rising locality, and are still in progress. Buildings of a very good description, including several handome shops are going up in all directions while land has made considerable advances in price. To keep pace with this progress the pro- prietor of this journal has decided to publish a localised edition of THE LEADER in Elsternwick. Very en- couraging promises of support have been freely and generously accorded, and to-day the first number of the ELSTERNWICK LEADER, consisting of     eight pages, makes its appearance.   We can assure our patrons and numerous readers in Elsternwick that no matter affecting its develop- ment and well being will be over- looked by us. We need not point out the importance of having a local organ, and have no doubt they will yet more liberally aid us in our en- deavours to bring the many advan-   tages of this rapidly rising district before the...

The Leader. JUSTICE TO ALL. SATURDAY, JULY 16, 1817. RAILWAY EMPLOYES. [Newspaper Article] — Elsternwick Leader and East Brighton, ... — 16 July 1887

SATURDAY, JULY 16, 1887. RAILWAY EMPLOYEES. JUDGING from the remarks over-heard dropping from railway officials and employees considerable dissatis-faction exists in this department of the Public Serice. One of the com- plaints often heard is of the long hours men and even boys are kept on   duty. Another complaint heard re-   cently was that they are often bandied from pillar to post very much to their inconvenience and disadvantage. There is no doubt some reasonable ground for complaint in some in- stances, but in others the grumbling comes from growlers who would not be satisfied anywhere. We are not   prepared to say that all the allega- tions against Mr. Alison Smith of the Locomotive Branch, are mere moon- shine, but some of them evidently are. Commenting on the statement of the enginemen, that the driver of the Essendon train, dismissed for being drunk, was in a position to prove that he was suffering from a blow on the head from a piece...

THE MYSTERIOUS SYKES ROBBERY. [Newspaper Article] — Elsternwick Leader and East Brighton, ... — 16 July 1887

THE MYSTERIOUS SYKES   ROBBERY. It will be remembered that on the 14th May last William Sykes, a farmer of Dande- nong, reported to the police that he had lost a pocketbook containg £961 in notes, and also a passenger ticket by the Sorata to England, under circumstances which led to the belief that the money had been stolen   from him. He that morning received from Messrs. Campbell, Pratt and Co. two cheques one for £990 and the other for a small amount, the money being the proceeds of the sale of his property at Dandenong, which the firm had effected. Mr. Sykes cashed the cheque for the larger amount at the Colonial Bank, on which it was drawn, receiving nine £100-notes, three £10-notes, and the remainder in £1-notes. He counted the money at a table in the banking room, and placed £961 in a pocketbook, and then put the book in the inner-breast pocket of his coat. Mr. Sykes procedeed to the General Post Office, and there he found that the pocketbook was no ...

THE BULLI COLLIERY DISASTER. [Newspaper Article] — Elsternwick Leader and East Brighton, ... — 16 July 1887

TILE BULLI COLLIERY DISASTER. THE report of the Bulli Colliery commis-   sion was presented to the Sydney Parlia- ment on Tuesday night last. The com- missioners are of opinion that much of the present Coalfields Act is confusing. The act prescribes 100 cubic feet of air-per minute for each miner, whereas practice shows the quantity re quired depends on circumstances. The commissioners are generally in accord with the intention of the Minister of Mines to assimilate the law of this colliery to the English Colliers Act.The commission re   ject the theory of Mr. Jno. Mackenzie examiner of coal fields, attributing the ex plosion to dynamite and are also opposed to the notion that a large accumulation of gas in the Western District mine exploded. They consider the explosion originated in No. 2 heading in the Hill End district, that it was caused by firing a shot, which ignited gas, and that the blast was intensified by coal dust. The lax discipline which obtain...

THE PERFUMERY AGAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Elsternwick Leader and East Brighton, ... — 16 July 1887

THE PERFUMERY AGAIN. How far the Brighton " perfumery " near Bay-street is an advantage to this town may be gathered from the fact that the neat villa residences erected adjacent thereto by Cr. Munro are untenanted, and likely to be so, owing to the nuisance referred to. Mr. Munro had a tenant coming in at 18s. per week, but as soon as the party found out the kind of es- tablishment next to it, the agreement had to be cancelled. It is about time the Council ordered the closing of this abomination.

Webb (president), Webster, Orford, Reid, Burrows, Stamp, LeMare, Sprigg, Hughes and Darvall (secretary). REPORT. The hall committee presented their report, in which they recommended that the cottage attached to the li- brary be let to a suitable tenant on the conditions that such a person clean and look after the hall. They also submitted a ???? of charges for the use of the hall and rooms. Mr. Reid moved that the hall and     one of the rooms be let to persons who apply for them such pur-   poses as they be used, so as to   keep within the meaning of the law. This was seconded by Mr. Burrows. Cr Webster said he thought that the hall might very well be utilised as a billiard room.

GLADSTONE has been presented by a large number of American citizens with an elaborately designed silver caskets, as a token of their estimation of his endeavors to secure Home Rule for Ireland.   EARL PERCY, eldest son of the Duke of Northumberland, has been raised to the Peerage. THE mail coach between Manilla and Bendeemer was stuck up and robber of of the mails on Monday last by a man wearing a mask of white cambrick. At the meeting of the Bulli fund com- mittee in Sydney on Monday it was de- cided that the relatives of the unknown sufferers be advertised for that they may   share in the distribution of the fund. FEARS are entertained that Lake Wen- douree will become dry unless something be speedily done to pump in a water supply from outside sources. UPWARDS of £4,000 was subscribed by ???? members of the Royal household for a Jubilee present to the Queen. It was to take the shape of a splendid silver centre- piece. The list of the w...

FOOTBALL ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Elsternwick Leader and East Brighton, ... — 16 July 1887

FOOTBALL ITEMS. The following are the results of the various matches played on Saturday after- noon last :— Brighton v. North Brighton. The return match between the above clubs was played on Saturday last on the Coast cricket ground. The ground was very sloppy and not in a good condition for a good display of the game. The teams took the field led by Grout and Float, and in the first half of the game the Brighton played all round their opponents, and kicked 4 goals and 5 behinds to 1 behind. After half-time North played better to- gether and carried the ball forward by a series of marks when Moore kicked first goal for the North and M'Dowal obtained a second one soon after. Towards the end of this quarter, when the ball was near the North's goal, one of their back men kicked the ball deliberately through the   posts. The umpire awarded a free kick to Webb, who easily kicked it through. The captain of the North not knowing the rules decided to walk off the ground and sto...

Science. MEMORY. [Newspaper Article] — Elsternwick Leader and East Brighton, ... — 16 July 1887

MEMORY   In ordinary life, and for general purposes, memory is an unconscious faculty. It grows more vigorously by quiet use than from strained effort. It is capable of indefinite expansion. The best part of it is an inheri- tance from either father or mother, or both. It reaches all healthy children in an active state, as shown by the rapid way a difficult language is acquired. The simple lessons of the school-room make the first arbitrary de- mands upon it. Then on through life, under a great and constant pressure, its capacity is increased; or, by neglect it becomes as un- certain as the winds. No other faculty of the mind is such a matter of every day refer- ence. Between "I have a good memory " and the opposite, "My memory is defective,"   the whole gamut of conditions is run up or down, in common talk, every day. Thoughtlessly a man claims a good memory for objects that appear to the eye, but con- fesses to a bad memory for conditions that reach the m...

BRIGHTON POLICE COURT. FRIDAY, JULY 8. Before Messrs. Hamilton (Mayor), Kiddle Sprigg, Wilson and Francis. THAT ODD SIXPENCE.   Dr. Casey v. Jas. Poyntonm for detaining 6. in excess of the legitimate fare for a re- turn ticket from North Brighton station to Melbourne. Mr. F. Stephen for the de- fendant. Dr. Casey deposed that on the 27th of last month I went to the ticket window of the North Brighton station and asked for a return ticket to Melbourne tendering a half crown to the accused. Accused took the coin, gave me the ticket and one shil- ling change. Saw the accused place the coin on the counter where there were other coins at the time, and I never took my eye off the half-crown the whole time. I de- manded the extra sixpence from him when he turned his back uopn me and went to- wards the telegraph machine and com- menced making a noise with the keys. I   then called him a disgraceful fellow, and went round to the door and asked for the stationmaster....
