POLLUTED WATEIR. ~------ DRAINAGE IN LAGOON. SThe Council in committee .gave consideation on Tuesday evening.to a complaint from the Port Melbourne Yacht Club, in regard to the drainage into the lagoon, and also the bathing area between Pickles street and the lagoon entrance; It was pointed out that certain substance drained from factories was detrimental to b6ats moored in thelagoon and destroyed the paint, and that in the bathing area discolored matter was emptied, which might cause disease. Cr. Sinclair said there was need for some action to minimise as far as possible the evil, A year or so ago one fac-. tcry, ;,ikh was considercd the cause of complaint, made arrangements to run off certain waste into the Board of Works sewer, and he understood this had been done.

PATRIOTIC MOVEMENT. SHOULD THE FUND BE CLOSED. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 21 November 1914
PATRIOTIC MOVEMENT. SHOULD THE FUND BE CLOSED. A concert provided in the town hall on Monday evening by Mr. G. Dickson proved unsatisfactory from a financial standpoint, only Io6 six penny and two one shilling tickets being taken at the door. The pro gramme was considered fair, particu larly the first half, but the attendance in no way gave the artists heart. The Mayor presided. It is now evident' that as far as Port Melbourne is concerned efforts to increase the patriotic fund will need to be considered carefully, as a recent event proved a loss of a few pounds,. Townspeople-have respond ed? liberal!y, but with decreasing wages in some instances, and no wages at all with others, support outside of necessities of life cannot be expected to any great extent. It is about time the fund was closed. If necessity arose it could be re opened later on with a better chance of success than at present.

Fortunate Escape. The "Devil's elbow" on the Black Spur is one of the most treacherous turnings on a steep incline in the State, and has been responsible for many: overturnings when brakes have failed the driver of motor, coach or other vehicle. Residents will have read about the adventure experienced, by Mr. Hugh Stran aghan, of Princes street, and party, who were overturned at this critical point last Sunday. As in most instances, the break on the motor, a large one containing nine persons, failed to steady the car, and when on the turning point overlooking the enormously steep timber scattered bank a tyre blew out and the motor and occupants were overturned, the whole thing being so sudden that there was scarcely time to realise what had happened. This occurred about 7 o'clock in the evening, and a doctor and two' motors were brought from Healesville within a short time. Beyond a severe shak ing, which has caused some stiffness sinced, Mr. Stranaghan escaped, and his little daugh...
