Political Labor Council., OPENING OF WINDSOR BRANCH. Tuesday last, April 21, saw the opening of the Windsor branch of the P.L.C., and although the night was wet the attendance was entirely satisfactory, and augured well-for a suc:ts ful branch. The chair was taken by Mr G. J. Mead, ex-President of the Central Executive, who, in his remarks de claring the branch officially opened, dilated upon what the Labor move ment stood for, and how it was the only movement of its kind in which the rank and file make, by their an nual conferences, their own platform, and were not blindly following the arbitrary dictates of a few indivi duals, or of an opulent Press. The principal speaker of the even ing was Mr J. F. Hannan, M.H.R., who, after a hearty welcome by the audience, stated that he had left the House under sufferance, and was pledged to return as soon as possible. During his address he rapidly scanned the p-esent state of Federa' politics, and advanced reasons for the Labor Party's uncom...
Municipal Debts. AN INTERESTING RETURN. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 25 April 1914
Municipal Debts. AN INTERESTING RETURN. An analysis of the municipal debts in various parts of the Empire (says he Age) was recently published in the London Financial News, and comparisons were made between the indebtedness of corporations in the dominions abroad and those of Bri tish municipalities. The lowest of the latter was Stoke-on-Trent, whose debt was 15/1 per head, and the highest Edmonton, the suburb of London immortalised in John Gil pin's ride, where the population owes C53 19s Id per head Prahran is quoted as owing C2/ 7/5 per head; South Melbourne, £4/10/4 per head ; Bt. Kilda, [5/614 per head ; and Melbourne, t9/11/5 per head ; while Winnipeg, in Canada, owes £32/15/ er head. The figures given for prahran are somewhat below the actual facts, as they are based upon borrowings known to the London Stock Exchange. It appears there have been local borrowings to the extent of £33.591 not reported to the Financial News. On the other hand the paper sets down South Mel bourne'...
Elizabeth Fry Retreat. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 25 April 1914
Elizabeth Fry Retreat. The State Premier (Mr. W. Watt) performed the ceremony of opening the new Elizabeth Fry Re treat building in Argo-street, South Yarra, on Tuesday afternoon, in the presence of a large attendance of in terested people. The retreat was founded in 1885 by the late Mrs. Sarah J. Swinborn, a member of the Society of Friends, for the benefit of female ex-prisoners and others who for the time being are useless members of society. Since Mrs. Swinborn's death the work has been carried on by her two daughters, the Misses S. Dell Swinborn and Fanny S. Swinborn, assisted by a council of advice. After being presented with a memento in the shape of a gold latch key, Mr. Watt said that it was clear that the institution was being run on right lines. It would be a sad day if it were ever considered necessary that the nation should take entire charge of charitable movements. He would never be in favor of such a scheme. (Hear, hear.) Such institu tions as the Elizabeth Fry Retre...

Federal Politics. BALACLAVA CONSTITUENCY. PROGRESSIVE LIBERALISM. There was a large attendance of electors at the St. Kilda Town Hall on Monday evening, when an in teresting address was given by Mr. F. N. Levin, a candidate for the Bala clava seat, in place of the Hon. Agar Wynne, who does not intend to stand for re-election. The chair was oc cupied by the Mayor (Cr. O'Donnell). Mr. Levin is a fluent speaker, and possesses the necessary qualification of being able to place his views be fort the people in a clear and intelli gible manner. He said his policy was progressive Liberalism, but the Libe ral party's managers had disclaimed him. His programme included three measures new to the Liberal propa ganda. One was the increasing of the salaries of the men in the lower grades of civil service. The spending power of a poorly-paid man, he had found, represented 26/2 for every sovereign he laid out-(Laughter) as compared with 16/2, which repre sented the value of a sovereign to men in th...

Football. ST. KILDA V. SOUTH YARRA. The seasiders went very near the premiership last season, and this year they hope to go one better. On Satur day last they encountered a local junior team, South Yarra. They have at last secured the services of McNamara, and he turned out in this match and looked very fit.

The only players of last year's team not available are Morrissey, Sellars and Lynch, who have gone to Western Australia, and Millhouse, who has re turned to Adelaide. The new men, from whom a deal is expected are, Phillips, from Mel bourne City; Turnbull, from Rich mond; Chapman, from Redfern, Syd ney; Anderson, from Launceston; Sharp, from Davenport; and Farmer, from Mirbhoo. Amongst the old players Jory has alhcady struck form, and they expect him to be a cham pion tlhis seascn. lThey beat South Yarra easily by 10 goals 20 behinds to 5 goals 9 behinds, despite...

The strange fatality which has at tended all expeditions to recover this hidden treasure is now a mat ter of history.

Cocos Island is a deserted, rocky piece of land located about three hundred miles from the coast ol Costa Rica. Tn 1820, when Peru was being torn asunder by a revolution, the trembling citizens, realising how feeble was the protection afforded by their banks and the altars of their churches, entrusted the trea sure to the captain of an English vessel. This man weighed anchor and sailed for Cocos Island, where he buried the treasure, amounting to £2,400,000. -The balance of the treasure was buried on the island by no les...

PRAHRAN MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 25 April 1914
PiRAH IAN IIARKIL T.J, For some time past the Prahran Council has been considering the ad visability of placing new stalls in the local market (situate in Commercial road), but so far nothing has been done. That the internal arrange ments of the market sadly need re modelling is patent enough to a casual observer with only half an eye. It is, indeed, with no feelings of pride that a Prahran citizen can point to his market. When it is empty on non market days, the first impression that strikes one is that it requires a thorough cleansing. What are known as stalls-stands would be a better vord - are very old and begrimed. Chere are butcher's blocks standing about, open to receive anything that comes along from the atmosphere. There is a separate stall at the north end of the market, which should be sent to the destructor without delay. The market is paved with pitchers, which pre sent an uninviting appearance, quite in keeping with the rest of the sur roundings. A market it is called!...
Lighting the Malvern Town Hall Clock. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 25 April 1914
Lighting the Malvern Town Hall Clock. At Monday's meeting of the Mal vern Council, a letter was read fromn the secretary of the Malvern Rate payers' Defence Association, asking the council to have tile Town Hall clock illuniined. Mayor Wilson said that in Novem ber last he had asked an electrician for an estimate for lighting the clock. nBy illuminating the clock with re flector dials, it was estimated that the cost would be £16/10.-. Cr. Holmes referred to the fact that Cr. McKinley had presented the clock to the Town Hall. He thought that the time had arrived when it would add to the usefulness of the clock to light it up at nights. He was delighted to know that the Mayor w-s interested in the matter, and had obtained a price for the work. Cr. McKinley said that some time ago the matter of lighting the clock had been taken into consideration. If the clock could be illumined by re flector dials from outside for £16/10/-, he would have no objection to its being done, and would not m...
