The petition is to come up for consideration at the council meeting on Monday next.

Vacant Land as Rubbish Tips. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 16 May 1914
Vacant Land as Rubbish Tips. Mr J. Rowan wrote to the St. Kilda Council on Monday evening complaining that a block of vacant land in York street, reserved by the Government for educational pur poses, was being made a repository for rubbish. Mr Chamberlin, Town Clerk, verified the statement of Mr Rowan. The land in question was under the control of the Lands Department. The Mayor stated that the Council had also made application to have the block of land placed under its control, so that it could be converted into a playground for children, It was only a small block, but it was a great nuisance to the whole neigh borhood owing to it being made into a rubbish tip. Cr Hewison said all over the city rubbish tips were being made of vacant blooks of land; but as they were not considered to be a menace to health the council was powerless to take action. There was a pro posal to secure legislative sanction to enable municipalities to deal with vacant land of the kind. Where they were made r...
Bowling. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 16 May 1914
Bowling. By BOWLIcR. The Carlton and Collingwood rink tournaments were continued on Satur day under excellent conditions. Here and there some fine exhibitions of bowling were given. For instance, In the third round of the Carlton tournament, Kemp, of Melbourne, put up a really remarkable performance. His rink was playing against that of Kelton, of Collingwood. The latter quartette put up 12 before Kemp scored a single. Then, of a sudden, as if some good fairy was watching over the Melbourne players, the latter put in a claim, and, creeping onward and upward, they downed their op ponents from Collingwood by 17 to 15. If this is not one of the best per formances connected with the Mel bourne Club for the season, I will be very much surprised. The third and fourth rounds of the Collingwood tournament were played, and amongst those of local renown who competed, Murphy's Malvern team had to return home defeated. The conquerors were Mr. Adam's men, of Ivanhoe, who scored 17 to 8. With fin...

High Rockeries. OBJECTIONS BY BUSINESS PEOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 16 May 1914
Hiigh Rockeries. OBJECTIONS BY BUSINESS PEOPLE. Sjoint letter, signed by several busiess people at the Junction, was received by the St. Kilda council on Monday evening, asking that the rockery at the junction of St. Kilda road and Punt road be levelled off tlmilarly to the one in front of the Town Hall. Amongst other things the writers complained that the rockery hid their places of business from view. Cr Barnet stated that the rockery had converted what was ?reviously a dirty spot into a clean one. It had been put there to check the dust that came along Punt road and caused annoyance to people in High street. The trees at the plantation were be tg nipped and trim ned. It would hi a shame to level down the rockery It the Junction the same as the one outside the Town Hall. There was aproposal to put a convenience near the plantation at the Junction. Cr Love did not think the rockery Prevented the dust coming along. To plaoe these high mounds at some 5pots was a mistake. About the Ju...

50th Battalion Senior Cadets. APPEAL ON BEHALF OF THE BAND. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 16 May 1914
50th Battalion Senior Cadets. APPEAL ON BEHALF OF THE BAND. Cap'ain Lemon, of the 50th Bat talion Senior Cadets, whose head quarters are at the Orderly Rooms, Chapel street, wrote to the St. Kilda council on Monday evening asking for financial supoort for the band of theBattalion. It was stated that the band had a debit balance of -15 6s 6d, and that although promises had been given, very few of the more prominent citizens had contributed towards the band. Captain Lemon added that the lads were proud of their band, which had the effect of stimulating them in their military duties. Cr Love said if a band of the kind was to be established citizens would have to come forward with support. He did not remember an appeal be ing made on behalf of this particular band before, although he had given a donation to the Battalion for some thing. Of course, it would be a dangerous precedent for the council to liquidate the debt of every band that appeared to be in difficulties. On the motion of C...

Cr Gibbs-We should ask Caul field for some details of their scheme. The Town Clerk mentioned that the engineers were working out a new drainage scheme. The mat:er was left to the Town Clerk to report on at a future date.
