Naval Defences. ADMIRAL HENDERSON'S VIEWS PROPOSED FORTIFICATIONS AT WESTERNPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 11 March 1911

Naval Defences. ADMIRAL HENDERSON'S VIEWS PROPOSED FORTIFICATIONS AT WESTERNPORT. Public interest in Admiral Sir Regi nald Henderson's report, the details of which were laid before the Council of Defence on Wednesday of last week, has been quickened by the announce ment, published .in "The Age" of Saturday, that the admiral's proposals for fortifying and equipping naval bases in Australia contemp ate an ex penditure of about £3,000,000. The scheme, as stated, is a twofold one, part having relation to the east coast, and part to the west, with naval bases and subsidiary stations on each. While these are the main features, there are, of course, a vast number of details Though all of these will not be avail able for some days yet, enough has transpired to a'low of the more impor tant proposals to be given in outline. The "keynote," as the admiral has him self publicly stated. is that of Imperial unity. It is this binding up or inter locking of the two things-Imperial naval defence and ...

OUR LETTER BOX. (We do not necessarily identify ourselves with the opinions expressed by corres pondents.) "THAT POOR PONY." TO THE EDITOR OP THE STANDARD. Sir,-It is to be charitably assumed that your reporter acted in good faith and not in spitefulness, in his com ments in your issue of the 4th inst. on my friend who drives a pony and phaeton, and who is accused of "knock ing out" in a inhuman manner man's "best friend" and "servant." The facts are that for some 8 or 10 weeks this particular pony has been driven three times daily a distance of about 1¼miles, i.e., 74 miles in all. Prior to this period a second animal was used alter nately. This beast has been given a spell, and prior to the issue of your correspondent's remarkably incorrect statement had been brought i;i to rec place the animal so commisserated by your reporter. A little more know. ledge of the ways of some ponies, and certainly a little more knowledge of one of the kindest-hearted residents of this minature towns...

Look at the Federal Roll ! [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 11 March 1911

Look at the Federal Roll I At the last Federal election an elector, who had voted at every Parlia mentary Generalelection, at d was very proud of the fact, went to record his vote. His name was not on the roll and his record was broken.- He was angry, and did well to be angry, but it made no difference. No one couII help him. He had to stand aside while his neighbours governed Aus tralia. What hal happened 1 He blamed the policema.1 who had gone from door to door collecting the names. He also blamed the system which aboli-hed the ratepayers' roll to which he had trusted, and which had never failed him. The policem n h d pro hably done his best The one who had answered the door had given all the names, and had overlooked this one. The very safety of the ratepayers' roll all through the years is the gravest dancer now, People have grown to ac epting itas a matter of course that their names would be on the roll. These experiences make it necessary thlt everyone shou!d call at a post of...

FRANKSTON B. v. UNION This match was played at Frank ston on Saturday, the home team (who had a very weak eleven) being beaten easily. The feature on the Frankston side was Benson's bowling and Utber's big hitting ; the former was very deadly, and got three wic ke0s-for four runs, whilst the bats man mentioned with two fine hits scored a couple of 6's in succession. Clements kept wickets very well for the winners; the only mistake he made was in forgetting that his chest was not as hard as the ball. Scores: F:Axs erox.

Mornington Athletic Sports. MARRED BY WET WEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 11 March 1911

Mornington Athletic Sports. MARRED BY WET WEATHER. The annual sports meeting of the e Mornington Athletic Club was held in the oval on Wednesday. There was only a moderate attendance, and the gathering was marred to a great ex tent by the rain which f.fell. The clerk of the weather is evidently ' dead against' Mornington, as on both this 1 occasion and that of the races the I weather has been most unfavorable. The programme set down was a lengthy one, and it was not till late that the last race was disposed of. Rather poor fields started in the bicycle events, and the riding was not of a very high order, though the track being slippery probably made a difference. In the pedestrian events the fields were much larger, and the various races were keenly contested. The footballers' championship created special excitement, Mornington, Frank ston and Hastings each having solid representation.
