The Modern Babylon. ALL-NIGHT REVELS IN NEW YORK'S GOLDEN WAY. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 26 May 1917
The Modern Babylon. ALL-NIGHT REVELS IN NEW YORK'S GOLDEN WAY. Mr. J. W. T. Mason, "Daily Ex press" correspondent in New York, writes: "Broadway, New York's centre of night life, has changed its title from 'the great white way' to 'the great golden way.' Its blazing lights and illuminated advertisements that pro vided the meaning of the former title are more brilliant than ever; but the old name has been replaced by the newer, because outshining the lights are the increasing piles of golden dol lars that glitter along the thorough fare as the result of New York's war prosperity. "Never before has Broadway known such spending capacity as is now everywhere rampant. Earlier in the war the spenders were lavish be yond precedent; but this winter the buying is far greater than it has been at any time since the war began. The accumulators of wealth in America outside New York are now making for the metropolis in droves and herds, and it is their presence, added to the normal capacity of Ne...
Rebuilding France. AMERICAN WOMAN MAKES START IN VITRIMONT. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 26 May 1917
Rebuilding France. AMERICAN WOMAN. MAKES START IN VITRIMONT. ''Vitrimont, near Luneville, France, March--American sympathy with the civilian sufferers from the war has been given more concrete expression in this little village than in any other part of the devastated country im mediately behind the French fight ing lines. When Mrs. William Crocker, of San Francisco, chose Vitrimont in which to carry out her idea of recon structing with her own means one of the villages destroyed by the German troops in their first rush into France, she met with much doubt and sus picion. The people of Lorraine are practical and hard-headed and also object to partake of anything given in the form of charity. It was therefore necessary to make the proposition a purely business-like one before lay ing it before the villagers. All the men of fighting age are at the front with their regiments. One cf the villagers while in the trenches one day received from his wife a let ter giving details of the plan o...

Strategy. Mrs. Broker: My dear, do you sup pose it is possible for a man, almost any man, to sit alongside of a beau tiful creature all day long, watching her pretty fingers toying with a type writing machine, without falling in love with her? Mr. Broker (suddenly becoming ab sorbed in a newspaper): Oh, he night if she were pretty, but I never saw a pretty typewriter girl yet. Mrs. Broker: What! I saw a type writer girl at your office who could Mr. Broker: That red-haired thing? Mrs. Broker: Red-haired! She has the loveliest, sunniest tresses I ever gazed on. Mr. Broker: Don't know who you can mean. My typewriter girl has ugly red hair, not beautiful black locks like yours, my dear; and her eyes, instead of being such a charm ing, soulful black-brown like yours, are a watery grey. Mrs. Broker: They are divinely blue. Mr. Broker: And her mouth doesn't look as if it were made for anything but pie. Mrs. Broker: I-I thought she had the mouth of a cherub. Mr. Broker: And I do hate pug no...

Labor Leaders Hot Against Rise in sunday Tramway Fares.—Revenue of Trust sufficent to Meet Men,s Claims is Urged. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 26 May 1917
Labor Leaders Hot Against Rise in Sunday Tramway Fares.-Revenue of Trust Sufficient to Meet Men's Claims is Urged. Indignation was expressed at the meeting of the City of Richmond branch of the P.L.C., held in the Town Hall on Tuesday night, at the pro posal to increase Sunday fares on the electric tramway system. Mr. G. Vesper moved that a letter be sent to the Hawthorn .Tramway Trust entering a strong protest against any such action. There was, in his opinion, no justification what ever for any increase as far as the lines of the Hawthorn Trust were con cerned. The municipal councils con cerned in their management had ex pected to be called upon to meet a debit balance of several thousands of pounds for the first year, but instead of that the trams had paid their way from the beginning. Richmond Coun cil had, indeed, instead of meeting a debit, received a dividend of £1000 in the first six months. Now, on the plea that the tramway employes were to receive a slight increase in wage...

Over 300 Names on Burnley's Roll of Honor-Sir John Madden Unveils the Board at Big Town Hall Gathering. Months of effort were realised at the town hall on Thursday night, when an honor roll of 309 former pu pils of the Burnley State School was unveiled by Sir John Madden. There was a large audience, and the gather ing paid a fitting tribute of honor to the old boys of the schools who are fighting-and some who have died in the trenches. Children of the school, arranged on serried tiers at the rear of the stage, made a pretty picture, and joined heartily in the singing of the many patriotic songs that were Included in an appropriate programme. Sir John Madden said that the young men who had gone forward had- realised the acme of devotion to their country. They should be honor ed in every way possible. After this war the world must ever afterwards live at peace. And while we honored our young men, let us not forget the women of the Empire, who were standing by them. It was probable tha...
Of Course the Trust Will Build and Operate New Church Street Tramway—Provided the Terms are Satisfactory. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 26 May 1917
Of Cdurse the Trust Will Build and Operate New Church Street Tram way-Provided the Terms are Satis factory. Replying to an inquiry from Rich mond Council as to whether they would be willing to construct and operate an electric tramway along Church-street, the Hawthorn Tram way Trust stated in proper business like style that they would be perfectly willing to do so providing an agree ment was arrived at mutually satis factory to the council and-to the Trust. There lies the rub. Difficul ties are evidently in the way just at present, for Cr. Bell, a delegate to the Trust, did not seem disposed to say much on the subject apart from mov ing that consideration be postponed for 14 days. Very probably some thing will transpire in the meantime. Meanwhile the Collingwood Council forwarded its official note that in their opinion the time is inopportune to con struct an electric tramway from Clifton Hill to Toorak, via Church street, and that therefore they would not, for the present, take any...
