A CAPITAL SUGGESTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Prahran Telegraph — 12 January 1889
A CAPITAL SUGGESTION. DEAbn SIn,-As two football matchcs ha?e been played during the past week, and reach has succeeded in drawing a large attendance, I .think the best thing foot bnallers can do is to arrange a match in aid of the Alfred Hospital,'either on a Saturday r ori the national holiday, 26th inst. The ouburbs south of the Yarnra are those most interested in the hospital, naid a match between--say, South Melbourne ald St, Kilds, would not fail to place a substantial sum to the credit of the institution. The interest in a smatch between the clubs I mention would be heightened by the fact that they have only once met, and then three seasons ago, since the formation of the local senior club, and not at all sincte the amnalgamation of Prahran 'and St. .ilda.-Yours, fc., A tEMoBER OF THE ST. KILDA F.C. 9th Jan., 188D. [This is a good suggestion, and if acted upon will redound to the credit of foot ballers.-ED.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. STREET ROWDYISM IN PRAHRAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Prahran Telegraph — 12 January 1889
LETTERS TO THE E·DITOR. STREET ROWDYISI IN PRAIIRAN. -----e B Ia,--Inan recent issue of the Prakran Telegraph my name was meoontionedin con nection with certain polic court proceed. ings against me for insulting behaviour. Perhaps you will permit these few lines, so that I may call attention to the dangerous use that may be made of this very clastic law and chargs. For example, take my own case. Accompasqled by three friends, all quite sober, and two of Whom are tem peranee men, I am seized in the publio streets, and for an offence of which I.now rc.assert I was perfectly innocent. Not. withlstanding, the bench chose to believe two constables as against my three friends, whose veracity no one attempted to im peach; still I was fined for doing a thing that I have never done all through myllfe. If a policeman has a grudge against any one, he can easily satisfyit by chargngany respectable man with ainsulting behaviour, who may suffer as I did. Neverthelns, it is very hard that a respec...
