ELECTRICITY. Supply Committee's Report. The report of the Electricity Sup ply Committee, as presented by Cr. Crichton at the last meeting of the town council, shows that there was a reduction in the total consumption in May, as compared with April. The bulk supply consumption for April was 19.76t units; for May, 15,120, showing n reduction of 4645 units. This oc(currcd in consequence of R.

Robert Harper & Co. are now installing an 18 h.p. motor,. ,con nected with the council's mains, in their No. 1 factory, and it is under stood that this will be a steady load. The report was adopted.
A DANGER SPOT. Inadequate Water Main Proposed. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 20 June 1914
A DANGER -SPOT: Inadequate Water Main Proposed: It is pleasing to note that the local council has a befitting appre hension-of the potential disability to which practically the only area of the municipality capable of expan sion, will be subjected if the Met ropolitan Board of Works persists in its proposal to lay a 4-inch water main in Graham Street West. At the meeting of the council on Tues day eveninb yet another-the third -intimation was received from the Board in which it was stated that, notwithstanding the council's earn est objections, the Water Supply Committee had again decided in favor of a 4in., in lieu of- a Gin., main. Cr. Smith, in proposing one of the few effective, alternatives that face the council, said the mat ter was of sufficient importance t( warrant that body in going a step further; and indeed it is. A con flagration in that part of the town would certainly result in a consider able loss of property, and possibly in loss life, for the simple reason that a 4...

FEDERAL ELECTIONS (To the Editor of the "Standard.") [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 20 June 1914
FEDERAL ELECTIONS (To the Editor of the "Standard.") •Sir,-I should be glad if you could find space to publish the following Points for Electors: Both Houses Dissolved. The Senate is the People's Cham ber. It. is representative of the whole of the States voting as one constituency. The House of Representatives re presents groups of electors. The "Reps." are the initiating and really controlling chanker, though the Senate is not only a House of Review, but also has powers of-sug gestion. To dominate legislation, a solid Senate poll is necessary. As far as "Melbourne Ports" is concerned, "Jim" Mathews is a cer tainty; but that should afford no excuse for staying away from voting. A record Senate poll is demanded. To lessen such poll, the policy of the Liberals--who oppose majority rule as shown by the dissolution of the Senate-may not run a candidate for the Ports. The issue at stake is the will .of the people, Let the people, there fore, turn out solidly, and vote the Senate ticket. ...

On the recommendation : "That steps be taken to form a ladies'. organising committee." Cr. Gill said the only way to arouse enthusiasm was by showing a proper spirit themselves. There should be committees in each division.in order that they should be self-contained. Then it was quite easy for the cam pTeign council to call those commit tees together and give them advice.

INTERFERENCE WITH CIRCUITS. More Hoodlumism. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 20 June 1914
INTERFERENCE WITH CIRCUITS. More Hoodlumism. The Town Council "has done well to offer a reward for information that will lead to the conviction of any persons who wilfully interferes with electric wire circuits. A repe tition of the senseless hoodlumism of last week was perpetrated on Monday at the corner of Union and Albert streets, the result being that fifty or sixty consumers of electri city were for some time inconven ienced. That the intereferuce' was deliberate is attested by the fact that the phase was diverted by no fewer:t tlin mhine pieces of steel wire and a -piece of bedstead iron. The police are making inquliries into the matter and it it to be hoped that the offender, or offenders, will be apprehended and subjected to ex emplary puluLlhnent. The council has quite enough to do to struggle along under existing financial dis abilities without being subjected to retarding influences on what should prove to be a substantially reproduct ive nwork.
