BUILDING REGULATIONS. APPOINTMElNT T01F IUILDING SU1R VEIYOt SUGGESTED. The Footscray City Counlcil's new buillding regulations came into opera tion last Wodnesday, and caused quite a ilutter amongst some of the builders. They also caused a mild flutter at Monday's meeting of the council, when Mr. Noylan, city engineer,, suggested that an inspector be appointed to see that the regulations were strictly en forced, The fees received, it was stated, would inore thanu pay the cost of supervision, Ho suggested that Mr. Whitehead be appointed pro teom and that he be granted an additional £50 oer lannullll for the work.

THE ELECTIONS. NO OPPOSITION TO RETIRING COUNCILLORS. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 15 August 1914
THE ELECTIONS. NO OPPOSITION TO RETIRING COUNCILLORS. It was fully expected that there would be two contests in Footscray at the municipal elections due this month but candidates in the North and South wards did not materialise, consequently Crs Drew, McDonald, and Bell have been re-elected unopposed. Nomina tions closed on Thursday last and up to the last moment it was regarded as pos sible that either of two residents named would have entered the lists in the north ward. That one would have done so is certain but for the war, which besides overshadowing other matters in the public mind, has caused men who think to see the necessity of reserving all their time and energies to the safe guarding of their own businesses. The three councillors are to be congratula ted upon their unopposed return, and in Cr Drew's case particularly., few will begrudge him the honor of a walk-over as, during the time he has occupied a seat at the council table he has proven himself to be a strong advocat...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 15 August 1914
One of the features of the war that displeases the sober-minded citizen of Australia is the treatment meted out to German residents by the unthinking and inconsiderate. It becomes a duty to point out to those whose excessive pat riotism or jingoism leads them to an sault or insult, that Germans resident amongst us are in no way responsible for the war; that the vast majority have resided so long in British territory that they have come to appreciate the freedom they enjoy and to almost rev cre the British nag; and that far from wishing to do harm to those amongst whom they reside, they desire nothing better than to continue to live in peace and concord with their fellow citizens n their andopted country. Under Bri tish rule Germans have proved splendid colonists and most of them by becoming naturalised acknowledge our king as theirs. Britishers, and to come closer home, Australians, reside in all parts of the globe and we can just imagine the indignation witl which news that because...

VISIT TO BLIND ASYLUM. Many surprising things done by blind people were witnessed by the mayoress of Footscray (Mrs. T. B.

Exercises were gone through to promote physical develop ment, and the way the inmates move about the premises with all the freedom of those blessed with their sight was simply wondrous to behold. The party left the building impressed by their visit and when the effort is made to raise funds locally for the i...
