Does Tubba Rubba Hide Victoria's Best Gold Reef? Peninsula Pioneers' Faith in a "Second Long Tunnel" [Newspaper Article] — Frankston Standard — 5 October 1949
Does Tubba Rubba Hide Victoria's Best Gold Reef? Peninsula Pioneers' Faith in a &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; "Second Long Tunnel" " Recent reports in "The Standard" that a prospective syndi-. cate of' sluicing miners now understood tobe associated with the. Castlemaine district, made preliminary investigations of :..the old Tubba Rubba diggings, at North Merricks, on the Peninsula, has had most unexpected and surprising reper cs..?iois. Statements with a lot of apparent foundation behind .tem, have since* been made- to "The Standard," regarding' Peninsula' pioneers. whose .faith in the existence at Tubba Rubba of what would. be the largest and richest. -of all Vic .' toria's, gold reefs of the, past, . only. waiting to be discovered at the right point, had endured throughout their lifetime.. *1:.

Early History of The Standard' (Somerville) [Newspaper Article] — Frankston Standard — 5 October 1949
Early History &nbsp; of &nbsp; The 'Standard' &nbsp; By Harry G. Overton &nbsp; (Somerville) In the early days of Frankston, until the year 1889, the local news of the town, in fact of the whole of the Peninsula was provided by the "Dandenong Advertiser", published by Messrs. Swords Bros. - also the "South Bourke and Mornington Journal" Published by Messrs. Roulson. As far as Frankston was concerned, it can be imagined that the circulation of either paper would be somewhat small. &nbsp; In the year 1888 Mr. Evan Griffiths, came from Daylesford, to open business in Bay Street as a bootmaker. He was of a literary, turn of mind, and feeling that there was an opening for a local paper being published on the Peninsula, he induced several &nbsp; &nbsp; of the leading residents to become interested in the matter; and called a meeting to discuss his proposal. After several meetings were held a Company was formed and registered as the M...
EARLY HISTORY OF FRANKSTON Grand Day the 'Standard' IT'S ALWAYS A [?] DAY AT THE [?]AND [Newspaper Article] — Frankston Standard — 5 October 1949
EARLY HISTOIY OF FRANKSTON (By Don. Charlwood) &nbsp; In 1929 whilst a student at Frankston High &nbsp; School, young Donald Charlwood compiled a history of Frankston, for which he was awarded a prize on speech day, and which later appeared in full in "The Standard." The original history took up columns over a number of weeks, and that means, of course, that what follows here has had to be condensed, but none of the important items have been omitted. We are very grateful indeed to Mr. Charlwood, who now resides at Canterbury, for giving us permission to include his, historical record in this Diamond Jubilee edition of "The Standard." Twenty years have passed since this essay on Frankston's history was written. As I re-read it now, the mistakes of a thirteen-year old boy are all too evidence, and unfortunately no time is left me to change them: Although its theme is discon- nected, perhaps the material in it shall some day be put to better use. For the material, came ...

Grace McComb Was Frankston's Florence Nightingale Tribute to Oldest Family of 'District Pioneers [Newspaper Article] — Frankston Standard — 5 October 1949
Grace McCoi~b Was Frankston's Florence Nightingale Tribute to Oldest Family of District Pioneers An inscription on the stone wall of the main entrance to the Frankston Cemetery reads: "This entrance was erected in August, 1926, by grateful friends, to the Memory of the late Mrs. Grace McComb for her goodness," while on a grave just inside the entrance appears the words: "Erected to the Mem ory of Thomas and Grace McComb, Pioneers of Frankston, 1852." Only a period of a few months separated the arrival of the first settler in Frankston, Mr. James Davey (Oliver's Hill), and the McComb family, whose first home was a tent on the beach, near the Fernery, held under a Miner's Right, at payment of £10 per year to the Crown. The noble deeds of Mrs. Grace McComb, as maternity nurse, and only "doctor" for 40 years in Frankston district, establish the everlasting glory of her name as the greatest woman in all Frankston's history Frankston's Florence Nightingale.

Grice Family Played Its Part [Newspaper Article] — Frankston Standard — 5 October 1949
Grice Family Played Its Part Both in the pioneering, and progress of Frankston and Mt. Eliza, up to the present day, the popular Grice family has well &nbsp; and truly played its part.

Mornington FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT. We have been favoured with tolerably fine weather during the past week. The rain that fell previous- &nbsp; ly combined with the warm spring weather we are at present enjoying, has made vegetation of every description grow rapidly, and has been a boon to the whole district.

Bank Nationalisation MR. ANDREW HUGHES STATES HIS POLICY [Newspaper Article] — Frankston Standard — 5 October 1949
Bank Nationalisation MR. ANDREW HUGHES &nbsp; STATES HIS POLICY This is undoubtedly one of the most contentious questions ever to have been debated by the Federal Parliament. It played a major part in the defeat of the Cain Labor Government in 1947. We believe this was due, mainly, to the decision to implement the policy without clearly setting the facts before the people and seek- ing their will. Statements pro and con were colored by propa- ganda and prejudice. Mr. Hughes believes that this involves a vital democratic prin- ciple. It is the same principle which has led him to submit to the electors the question of his right to represent Labor in Flin- ders. And the choice is the peo- ple's. The question of Bank National- isation having been carried through the highest courts of ap -peal in the British Commonwealth of Nations, it should now he sub- mitted to the people for their de- cision. In a democracy this is the highest court of all. Let the Federal Labor Government pr...

His excellent story, published in this Diamond Jubilee edition of "The Standard," was the result of iamuch research. The publication of that effort here leaves a gap of 20 years in our historical record. We were at first inclined to leave it at that, but on reflection, it was decided that this should be written, using the files of "The -Standard" as the source of. information. All the files now confront me - forty half-yearly fire-scarred copies of the news of 'the past. The appearance of this damaged pile of,information is enough to deter anyone - but will it deter me? I 'amn not too sure that it won't before I have completed the job! Necessarily, this part of Frankston history is not as coloriful as the early years. It must be, more or les, a summary ...
