Football. ST. KILDA V. RICHMOND. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 2 May 1914
Football. - ST. KILDA V. RICHMOND. There was a large crowd of spec tators to witness the first league match of the season between the above teams, probably 20,000 people. A great deal of interest is being taken in the doing of the St. Kilda Club this season, on account of their ex cellent form last year, when they just missed the premiership in the final match. Added to this the fact that McNamara made his re-appearance with the trn-colors, and everyone was anxious to see how he would shape, it can be readily understood that er citement reigned supreme. Regarding the match itself, it was not a very brilliant game. In the first place, the day was rather warm for football, especially as most of the players are rather short of training as yet, and on the other hand, there beiing so many new men in each team. it can be quite understood that they would not be used to each other's play. If anything Richmond had slightly the better of the game on the day's play, but McNamara was a thorn in...

Motor Traffic and Accidents. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 2 May 1914
Motor Traffic and Accidents. There have been several serious motor collisions of late, and while there is no cause for alarm in this, the subject is one that cannot be passed lightly over. Naturally, the municipal authorities are keenly in terested in the traflic of the thorough fares, and have given their attention to motor forms of transit. It is not so very long ago that Cr Naylor endeavoed to induce the Prahran Council to pass a bye-law making it compulsory for motor cars to come to a standstill when passengers are alighting from or boarding tram cars in the more important sections of the city. The contention was that motor cars came along at a too rapid rate and "scattered" tramway passen gers. No bye-law of the kind desired by Cr Naylor was brought into force. one objection raised against it bear that, if motor cars had to pullu under the conditions proposed "there would be a long string of them one behind the other !" Possibly this may be a phantom objection. It was an ingeni...
Appointments of Justices of the Peace. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 2 May 1914
Appointments of Justices of the Peace. During the past week the first inter-state conference of honorary Justices was held in Melbourne. Various matters were discussed, in cluding Children's Courts and the manner of appointing Justices of the Peace. As to the latter two motions were passed as follows " That this conference reconmmends that steps should be taken by the Victorian and New South W'ales Justices' Associations to induce their respective Governments to issue certificates of appointment of hono rary Justices, under the hand of the Minister controlling such appoint ments." " That this conference recom mends each Association to take such steps as may seem most desirable and essential to improve the appoint ment of Justices of the Peace." To find Justices of the Peace talking about " improving the appointment" of Justices of the Peace savors very much of the humorous. In effect, the conference says if mistakes have been made in the past let them be avoided in future. There hav...

Armadale Baptist Tennis Club Concert. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 2 May 1914
Armadale Baptist Tennis Club Concert. All those who availed themselves of the opportunity of being present at the concert on Tuesday evening in the Armadale Baptist Church, under the auspices of the Tennis Club, were entertained with a programme, which was thoroughly appreciated, encores being demanded for nearly every item. Included in the items which at tracted the large audience were con certed items by the Welsh (Gwalia) Choir of male voices. The numbers were all well chosen, and gave the choir a splendid opportunity of dis playing the excellent quality of their voices to the best advantage. Miss Mabel Thompson was as usual very successful in her vocal numbers, which comprised "If Thou Wert Blind," "The Charm of Spring," and Gounod's "Serenade." Miss Thomp son's particularly sweet and musical soprano completely captivated the audience, who very imperatively de manded encores. Two vocal numbers by Miss Wynne Macoboy, "Sleepy Song," and "Leaves in the Wood," gave this singer an ex...
