Finals at Frankston [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 19 August 1921
Fiials at Frankston The delegates met at Somerville last week and wisely decided to, play th6 semi-finals-and the fin-. al we hope-at Frankston, main ly because of its accessibility to all parts, from Chelsea and bey ondto Dromana. • The gate, in the' circumstances, should range from £80 to £100 for the final,' and from £50 to £65.for the se mi-finals, for Carrum has a very large following which was not ex istent last season. Tomorrow, at Frankston, Somerville and Hast ings wvill meet to decide the first semi-final, and as both skiPpieis, Allen Mentiplay and "Donnie" Knox, are optimistic, -an excell ent game should result. - - Either Dainty (for preference) or Crowd will have charg~e,whilst the.Lea gue also supplies the goal um Tires. The playing ground is be Ing improved: and. " 3bker" Ca-' ineron is attending to the.vari ous arrangements; whilst "Bill" Gregory promises to have a boat on the "Bliue Lagoon'! for rescu ing lost balls !

Howell addressed a well attended meeting of ratepayers 'at the Seaford ball on Saturday evening last, Mr C. Hounter presiding. In i- ntroducing Cr.

He strongly denounced the rumor that he was prepared to vote away the peoples' rights to the foreshore, and that he had voted to allow camping on the reserve. The council did make a humane provision to allow teamsters to, camp for the night only on that part of the road from Martin's crossing to the Mile Bridge.

Reminiscences [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 19 August 1921
Heminiscences A correspondent desires that mention should be made of the fact that it was an employee of "The Standard" who first con ceived the idea of the Morning ton Peninsula Football Associa tion. This was Mr Jostlear, who, when- stationed at Mornington, convened the first meeting. 'The Standard" was then conducted by Pettit & Co. "Enthusiast," Mornington, has a word or two to say-Those re-. miniscences make fine reading, recalling as they do some great battles of the past. Re the 1915 season ; I should like to correct a couple of mistakes regarding the finals. Though just managing to scrape into the finals, Hastings defeated Naval Base by 2 points in the first semi-final, and m the. second Langwarrin Guards beat Mornington by 1 point. In the fi nal the Guards beat Hastings by I point, but in the grand final Mornington (minor premiers) stoushed the Guards'by 12.25 to 7.4. Tom Gibney got 37 goals in 1915. "Billy" Sanderson was the next best.

Some Carrum Topics Cr. H. Rigby Elected to Council Unopposed [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 19 August 1921
Some Carrum Topics Cr H. Rigby Elected to Council Unopposed There is some talk of a co-oper ative store being formed at Car rum. What will the harvest be? Here is another little puzzle ;it is not bad. Have a try at it If the B Mr put : when . There :are several large insur ances here, one of them being for £3250,: the premirim being -£37 10s nett:. Members of the Fire Brigade are not pleased at certain.propo sitions by the Chief of the Coun try Fire Brigades. One of the principal objections is-they are only to have three men, while at Chelsea they are to have nine. They are of the opinion that this is not sufficient safety for the town. And they are right. A"n important meeting of the ratepayers will be held tomorrow .night, when matters. connected with the Fire Brigade will be dealt with. Be there ! No opposition was received by Cr H. Rigby for his re-election as one of our representatives. This was received as a compli ment by that gentleman. Cr Rig by was elected when the new Bo ...
The Standard. FRIDAY, AUGUST 19, 1921. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 19 August 1921
itu Stnnbarb. FRIDAY, AUtUST 19, 1921. rT HE ELECTION to fill the seat - so long occupied by Mr Downward is exciting an extra ordinary amount of interest. The reason is on the surface. Mr Downward, in allying himself with the-Labor Party to defeat the Government, lost the support of a great body of electors. Of those electors some were Nation alists, some were supporters of the Country Party. most were men and women with no respect for the wirepullers, paid organ isers and touts of any party organisation. All were, how ever, agreed on a few simple points. They want a Govern ment which will develop the resources of the State as a whole and of this district in particular, on sound lines, squandering no money, pandering to no class. They want, further, to choose their own parliamentary rep resentative, and to give him his mandate. That being so, they were righteously indignant when they found that a coterie in IMel bourne had selected Mr W. S. Cook, not as the candidate of the :lique, ...

Mr Bradbury Replies [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 19 August 1921
Mr Bradbury. Replies -The following letter, addressed to the council, was read from Mr Bradbury "A petition has been lodged with you protesting against the annoyance caused by a refrigerator and grain grinding plant, owned by me, and re questing you also to compel me to remove same to so'me other arsa, (no matter at what monetary loss to me) on the ground of preserving this as a residential area. With the pro posal for the council to preserve this locality as a residential area, I am not going to discuss here, except to say, that the prime mover in this ma'ter, Mr Bruce Mellor. offered the property adjoining mine, to Mr Olsen, without any reservation what ever, as a business site, not more than nine months ago. I do, how ever, emphatically deny any nuisance so far as my plant is concerned. With one exception, where we had a breakdown, the plant has never ran after 10 p.m., or before 7 a.m. The total number of hours run since December 24th, 1920, is 720 hours; the day and night busin...

Decisions Questioned [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 19 August 1921
Decisions Questioned "Billy" Monk, who acted as the goal umpire for Somerville, got himself into hot water over two decisions he gave. Mr Monk was in one case quite right, but in the second case, my opinion was that a goal had been scored, but, I should not say it was positively. There' was plenty of room for doubt, and I would exonnerate Monk, who was a noted player sbme years ago, from any charge of partiality. In any case, the ringside experts have no right to hop into the enclosure.and dance around the goal umpire as though they were going to enjoy a joint at a cannibal feast !
