Russell having given notice of motion re garding a referendum to the rate payers on the subject of a 44 hours' week for municipal employees. lHe was sorry C'. Russell was not pre sent at the meeting that night, as he (MIr. Irwin) would then have had a good deal to say on the subject. He did not care to say too much, how ever, seeing tile coutcillor was ab sent. Seeing that Cr.

THE BELLE AND THE OFFICE BOY. (To the Editor of the Standard.) Sir:-"Portonian's" remarks about "Miss Pretty Portonian" are inter esting. I don't think I ever heard of a better certificate than was given by the "orfis boy" in an adjoining suburb during the week. A young lady from a Port Melbourne firm had .iu.t made a business call at his office. It was noticed that he took particular stock of the fair visitor. After she had gone the Lamp Sticker startled the clerical staff by exclaiming: "What a bonza tart! If they are all like her it's no wonder they are writing in the paper about the pretty Port girls." There's praise indeed. "Out of the mouths of babes"-but you know the rest. I am, Yours truly, The Clerk An amusing incident was provided on the Railway Pier at the Departure of the Board of Works' picnic to Queenselite. ,Just as the "Weer oona's" ropes were being cist off two mel caine runnilng up to the gang way.

LABOR LEAGUE. Discuss Defence Act. Address by Mr. Mathews, M.H.R. Warning to Australia. The chief item on the agenda of the Labor League at Monday night', meetin-" was an aldress by Mr. James Mathews, L.HI.R., who pointed the moral of the South Afri(can situation marked by a tone of moderation and restraint which showed that hle was not going outside the mark when he claimed for himself that '"he wat no extremist."

Cr. Russell suggested that an en tertainment might be run by the Council.

If the Local Government Act did not allow the Council to give monetary assist ance they could help in the way "he suggested. The Town Clerk stated that they could give something as a charity grant. The auditors would nass tlhat. Cr. Walter accordingly moved that a charity vote of £10 be given. Cr. Sinclair thought they could :1o something better, than that, on' the lines marked out by Cr.
