This match took place before a great numnber of spectators, including the ministers of both churches, and many prominent members of their congrega tions. *The Wesleys, without signs of over-confidence, took charge of the play right from the start, and by good open football, had registered the long lead of 5.10 to 0.2, at half-time. After that the Baptists showed a desire to crowd the ball, and the Wesleys, having a big lead, naturally assisted them, and the play in this half was not nearly so at tractive.

A. N. A. Our Local Branch. Metropolitan. Committee's Finances. At the meeting of the A.N A. last week, Mr. Mi. Quinn reported having at tended a meeting of the Metropolitan Committee,, on May 8. It was about the worst report he had ever had to make from that body, and the Chair man wound up by telling them that they were all liable. The loss in con nection with the last Exhibition was £2,600. It was one of the best ex hibitions ever put on from an edu cational point of view and one of the least appreciated. There wasoa great want of responsiveness on the part of the public. The A.N.A. had 38 branches in the metropolitan area and all weie sending delegates to the Metropolitan Committee. In round numbers the delegates represented 180,088 members. And yet the pur chase of tickets by the 38 branches worked out at less than Jd. per mem ber!

As far as the in culcation of Australian sentiment was concerned, he did not think they could choose a better date.

ANGLICAN CHURCH. Outline of History In Australia. How many people now living know that part of the site now, occupied by the handsome st?ructuie known as Hi-oly' Trinity, in Bay-street; Port tennt in which church services were. conducted and that the summons to attend divine service was sounded from a bell suspended from the ridge pole? Yet such was the case; and this primitive place of worship sub sequently gave way to an iron build ing, and that in its turn to the pre sent substantial edifice of brick. These were a few of the interesting facts presented to a iumerous audi ence by the incumbent of Holy Trin ity, the Rev. Win. M'Kie, in a lec ture delivered in the school-room on Thursday week, on the Origin and Growth of the Church of England in Austra lia. The address was copiously illus trated with lantern slides and to An glican churchmen was an*educational treat. Chiefly remarkable and pride instilling, perhaps, was the fine, re fined type of countenance thrown upoii the screen ...

ELECTRIC SPARKS. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 30 May 1914
ELECTRIC SPARKS. Bravo Port Melbourne! A willing, gritty game. Results in merited victory. Every point tells, but the major counts as six. And that'is what told when the final bell rang. Ports crossed the goal line 18 times, but notched 1.1 goals; Essendon. 23 times past the line, had only 7 majors. Just what the "Standard" has been predicting. A cool, strong. systema tic game with the majority of scoring shots as mnajors, and the result is jubilation amongst faithful s.upport ers. The team should repeat the dose to-day. It would do well, however. not to leave too much to the last quarter.
