A FAULTY SANITARY SERVICE [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 8 March 1924

A FAULTY SANITARY SERVICE T'he condition of the sanitary service at St. Albans created some discussion at the Keilor Shire Council meeting on Saturday last. Complaints had been received from ratepayers regarding the dis-   graceful conditions prevailing. Mr Luxford, president of the St Albans Progress Association, was also present to add his voice in   favour of reform.   The shire inspector (Mr. McGrath) informed the council that he had made an inspection of various residences in St. Albans and found the arrangements made very bad. The contractor had neglected to call at regular inter- vals, and some of the conveniences were in a shocking state. Cr. Stenson, the president, said he had personally visited some of the houses where the complaints emanated from, and found the same state of affairs as outlined by the inspector. He had asked the contractor what was the area he was supposed to visit, and got the reply that Big street was the boundary....

ST. ALBANS TO HAVE WOODEN SHOPS [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 8 March 1924

ST. ALBANS TO HAVE WOODEN SHOPS At the Keilor Shire Council meeting on Saturday last the pre- sident (Cr. Stenson) brought be fore the members a matter that was agitating the minds of resi- dents of St. Albans. He said that Mr. Alex. Dixon was contemplat- ing the erection of a shop in St. Albans that was to be built for a greengrocery. Another contractor also had in view a butcher's shop, but both would be unable to pro- ceed with the work if the coun- cil's by-law, compelling only brick or concrete buildings, was enforced. He thought the council should assist the contractors in the matter. Mr. Andrew, the shire secre- tary. read the by-law and the building regulations, and advised the council that they had power to vary, and suggested that he be empowered to give the necessary permission for the contractors to erect the buildings in wood. The authority to give the secre- tary that power was carried una- nimously, on the motion of Cr. McFarlane, seconded by Cr.   White....

otop W here are Sure of Values... * That's the wise buyer's policy When Wittner's stait'ed in business here the Wittner Store was a small one, but in those days Footscray was a small place, and the places surrounding Footscray were, to a very great extent, big open fields. If Wittner's attempted to start in a small way to-day in this district they would fail in business. Why? Simply be cause they could not finance an undertaking of the proportions necessary to ctter for the many 'thousands of 1eople now resident in and around this.important centre. Wittner growith has been a steady growth. In its direc tion progressive policy has always been maintained.

CRhIKET. SUNSHINE v. ALBERT PARK., The above game was commenced mn the 'Coburg ground on Saturday last, 8th inst. Sunshine won the Loss, and decided to bat first. Dodson and H.

White was next to come in, but after making 5 was clean bowled =n attempting a big hit.-3-5-23. G. Ellingsen was unlucky, 'being well- . .aught at point before scoring.---4-0 :5. When R.
