Combined Destructor Site. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 2 May 1914

Combined Destructor Site. Cr. Hewison, representative of St. Kilda on the St. Kilda, Brighton, and Caulfield ,conference relative to the proposed erection of a joint destruc tor, on land which was purchased from the Lands Department, in the vicinity of the South Elsternwick State school, reported to the St. Kilda Council. on Tuesday evening that there was, a deadlock in the proceed ings. Owing to the destructor being in close proximity to a State school, an agitation had been set up against it, and the Minister for Lands had re fused to accept a cheque for £450 for the purchase of the site. If the ar gument set up, that the destructor was injurious to health, then it would be an argument against destructors altogether. (Hear, hear.) Sir Alex ander Peacock had stated that the proposed destructor site was required for a children's playground. As it was near a drain, he (Cr. Hewison) thought there should have been an ob jection to that. What appeared to him strange was that while one d...

JAPANESE PLAYGOERS. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 2 May 1914

JAPANESE PLiAGOERS. Japanese theatre-goers have an original way of applauding a fine performance. They shriek ;ilan whoop with delight, and, when the enthu siasmn reaches its highest pitch, hats, coats, or other articles of clothing iae showered upon the stage as toiilquets are flung to the favour ites in this country. sA story is told of a foreigner i'ho6 saw this rain of coats and sislies ?falling upon the stage after a'. tliiilli-ig'. sceine and; wishiing to con-. t~ri lt) his mnite; he tossed his'hat ovre I^-i:: :was willing- to' sacrifice S ch to leeiip the creidit1t i, itl t ciiiarly asC the liant i;-a - old;ind one he. h:adr asot?

Albert Park and Technical Schools. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 2 May 1914

Albert Park and Tech nical Schools. As will be seen by reports else where, members of the bouth Mel bourne Council waited on the St. Kilda Council on Tuesday evening in regard to two matters of public im portance, viz., future management of Albert Park, ana the establishment of a technical college on a small portion of the park land. As to the park it self, the council was invited to in crease its annual contribution thereto, and as to the college, it was asked that the council should give its con sent to its erection. The South Mel bourne Council is deserving of com mendation for the public spirit it is displaying in connection with both the park and the college, and in the interest of both it is prepared to shoulder an extra and substantial financial burden. Doubt less, it is in a better position to find the money than St. Kilda. That the park is in need of further improve ments in the interests of the general public is undoubtedly true, but there is no need whatever to strike out...

Bowling. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 2 May 1914

Bowling. BY BOWLER. The main items of the week have been a match, Victoria v. South Aus tralia, and Armadale v. South Aus. tralia. The local State vanquished the visitors, but the visitors vanquished the local club. In the Interstate match, played on the Melbourne green at Windsor, Vic toria won by 90 to 64. Speaking of the local skips, S. W. Smith gave the opposing quartette a severe mauling, 29 to 9. B. H. Pascoe, of the Mel bourne Club, was the only skip that had to undergo the painful necessity of striking his colors, the men of South Australia beating him by 25 to 19. W. W. Stephens, a Napoleon from Armadale, got home by 22 to i', and A. Warner, by a few gentle strokes, beat his opponents by 20 to 18. It was an enjoyable game through out, and the Vies. were visibly pleased at their win. The South Australians were on their way home from Brisbane, and like sen sible bowlers, they thought it would be just the thing to spend a few days in Melbourne en route. They were cordially rec...

Brighton Tramway. LIGHTING THE TRACK. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 2 May 1914

Brighton Tramway. LIGHTING THE TRACK. The St. Kilda Council on Tuesday evening received intimation from the Railways Commissioners stating that it was considered, so far as the Brighton tram traffic was concerned, the light provided by the headlights of the cars, together with that from the inside of the cars, adequately illuminated the road way, both whilst the cars were running and whilst they were at a standstill, and the commissioners con sidered that the lighting question was one for the municipalities concerned, and not the department, to take up. Cr. Barnet: It is outrageous for the Railway Commissioners to say it is not their duty to light the tracks. They should do it in the interest of the safety of the public. The Prah ran and Malvern Tramway Trust light their tracks. The refusal of the com missioners to light the Brighton tram way track should be brought up in Parliament. Thousands of people have to walk in the darkness to reach the trams. Cr. Love: The argumen's of the ...

Eight Hours' Day. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 2 May 1914

Eight Hours' Day. The annual Eight Hours Day was celebrated on Monday under most successful conditions. The usual march took place, thousands of spec tators watching along the line of route. It is estimated that about 12,000 tradesmen marched, or a few hundred moire.than last year. Two or three new banners were out, notably-that of the firemen and tram way. men., .Both were -splendid . pic torial representations, the one with a fireman rescuing a girl from a burn ing abuilding, arid: the other with a municipidal electric- tram car as its main picture. For making the best marchiung display credit must be given to the tramway -men. The "electric" men, the greater part of them well on the youthful side of life, looked spick and spai: in their uniforms, and car ried themselves stately and erect. This, of course, is not possible in the ordinary course of their vocation, as they are kept busy. The "cable" boys, uelonging to a tramway service that has stooa the test of time well for over a...

This, of course, is less than that obtained in previous years, but reasons can be assigned for the diminished takings, !uch as the fact that the entertain sents are not so strong in novelay as they used to be, counter attractions, snd oher calls that had been made on the pockets of the charitable public.

MORE LIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 2 May 1914

MORE LIGHT. The stand taken up by the Rail Ray Commissioners that it is not t?neir duty, but that of the municipa iies, ito light the track of the St. Kilda to Brighton tramway (owned by the Government) is certainly not one that will commend itself to the general com:munity. There is an urgent need for improved lighting conditions. Passengers who alight lrom or board a tram after niehtfall anywhere along Broadway, for in stance, do so with fear. The Com missioners say the trams are well lghted. So they are. But the track is practically in a state of chronic and inky darkness. No doubt as population increases things will im prove, as then the councils, from the increased rates they would receive, would be able to improve the street hglhting conditions. The Prahran and Mlalvern Tramways Trust has been praised for the excellence of its track lighting arrangements. The Trust is practically the Councils, and there is little difficulty in proper lightinog arrangements being made. As to th...
