BOWLING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 31 January 1914
BOWLING NOTES. NOTES BY "JACK HIGH." A misguided member of the Footscray Bowling Club has ventured into the field ofcontroversy by utilising the casily-invaded columns of our contemnporary to denounce SJoack High" for stating that in view of the nonsuccess of the club's two teams it might be advisable to try their hand in a lower grade; quotes inoumerable excuses for the season's failures, and puts the finishing touches on his efforts by pasting his "'screed" on the club's notice board, recog nising of course that otherwise it were not likely to be widely read. But hard facts are difficult to explain away even by one so expert at the task. Up to the present the Footscray Clubs two teams have won only one pennant match out of thirteen played; and tnat after the publication of thle remarks by "Jack High" complained of. It is re grettable to know that the writer of the letter should be so little versed in journal istic etiquette as to forward it to a paper other than the one in which t...

WIDENING OF IRVING STREET. -----~.----I PROPOSAL TO ASK P OP ERTY OWNERS TO PA'. Years ago the thoroughfare lead ing from Nicholson street gates, past the station to Hopkins street, known as Irving street, was little better than a right-of-way but thanks to the Railway department's gift of a strip of loft. of land it was widened to that extent some years ago. It has recently been agreed by the de partment named to grant a further strip 4 ft. 6 ins. in width and the first step toward effecting the ad ditional widening took place on Tuesday evening when the surveyor submitted a report on the cost of doubling the width of the path on the north or residential side from Nicholson street to Leeds street. The surveyor's estimate of the cost of asphalting the extra 3 ft. of footpath was [i6 and of removing the channel [15/14/-, a total cost of £31/s4/-. The officer named point ed out that, pending the removal of the railway fence and south channel to take advantage of the extra 4 ft. 6 ins....

COMIPLAINT ABOUT SMELLS. FOOTSCRAY RESENTS DE. PARTMENTAL INUENDO. Amongst the correspondence dealt with at Tuesday night's meeting of the Footscray council was a letter from the Public Health department complaining that smells from Foot scray establishments were on the s8th December wafted across to Essendon on the sou' west wind to the annoyance of residents of that suburb. Cr Drew (mayor) said the writers were making a big mistake when they said the smells came from Footscray. Cr Jenkins-It is the old story abort giving a dog a bad name. Cr Drew-Just so. I move that the department be informed that the probabilities are that the smells came from establishments on the other side of the river, in Melbourne territory. Cr Jenkins-If the wind was south or sou-westerly the smells could not possibly have been carried from Footscray to Essendon. They would, if there had been any smells, have been carried across to the lower portion of North Melbourne. Town Clerk - The department might be ...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 31 January 1914
Judging by some remarks passed by those who should know better it seems necessary to state that we do not necessarily endorse the opinions ex pressed by correspondents in our columns. Many of the opinions given publicity to we entirely disagree with ; other opnions we think are founded on good and substantial grounds, but whether we agree or dissent we do not accept responsibility, other than that under the law of libel, for what corres pondents, named or anonymous, say or think. Further it is not for us to pro tect those to whom we are friendly dis posed, perhaps, from attack by declining to publish remarks that by them may be regarded as annoying, providing the subject matter of letters is of public interest and the letter of reasonable length. All we can do .is to keep our columns open with equal fairness to en able those concerned to reply and this we invariably do. Many grave abuses have been rectified as a result of letters from newspaper correspondents who have been, under th...
FIRES. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 31 January 1914
FIRES. During the past week several small fires occured all of which might have turned into serious conflagrations but for the promptitude of the local brigade. On Saturday morning, at 8.5, a call was received through the local exchange to the residence ot Mr A. F. Clarke, at 94 Droop street. One hose cart and four men were quickly on the scene, and with the help of the inmates and a garden hose extinguished a plot of burning grass and a pile of rubbish which, owing to the high wind, seriously threatened the dwelling. At 45 p.m.,the same day, a passer-by called the brigade to iq Droop street, owned by Mr Alex. Scott, and occupied by Mr Harold Barnes. A detached kitchen and contents and tent and bedding were severely damaged by fire. One hose cart and five men, aided by a good pressure of water, soon had the fire under control and prevented it from spreading to the main building. Both building and contents were insured. The fire is supposed to have been caused by the explosion of a g...
