Cab Rank, South Yarra. QUESTION OF POSITION. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 23 May 1914

Cab Rank, South Yarra. QUESTION OF POSITION. At the meeting of the Prahran City Council on Monday evening last, Cr. Flintoft moved that the petition sent in from the South Yarra cabmen for the rank to be allowed to remain in Yarra street, on the western side, be merely received. Residents of the s;reet objected to it. There was also a place of amusement there, and at times the street was very busy. Cr Embling said he would like to see the cab rank remain in Yarra st. for the sake of those who wanted it there, but he could not see how it could remain there. Owing to the railway regrading works Yarra street was to be reduced to 26ft 9in, be tween the kerb and the railway fenoe, and the cab shelter was be. tween six and eight feet wide. The street was a fairly busy one, espe. cially on account of the place of amusement that was in it. The ad. vertising hoarding of the A.A. Co. was an eye sore, and it would be an advaitage if the shelter could be shift.:d hack on to private land. The te...

Hopes for the Chapel Street Station. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 23 May 1914

Hopes for the Chapel Street Station. ?4p--t- On the surface of things the depu tation that waited on Mr Donald Mackinnon, Minister of Railways, to urge the erection of a railway station at the intersection of Chapel street and Arthur street, South Yarra, have every reason to feel satisfied that the prospects of getting the station are now very much brighter than th.y were. Of course, the enthusiasts are aware that while Mr Mackinnoo, who is represen tative for Prahran,is also Minister of Railways, the request for the station has to be looked at from two points of view. As representative for the constituency of Prahran, Mr Mac kinnon is in favor of the station, but, as he pointed out, as a member of the Government, he was responsible to Parliament ; and therefore it was his duty to give the subject fuller and further consideration in conjunction with the experts of the Department. Apart froim all this, it was with a keen sense of pleasure that the deputation found that Mr Mackinnon w...

Malvern Ratepayers' Defence Association. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 23 May 1914

Malvern Ratepayers' Defence Association. The Malvern Ratepayers' Defence Association, which, judging by the correspondence which they forward to the Malvern Council, is a very active and energetic body, wrote to Monday's Malvern Council meeting, accompanied with a requisition, ask ing the council to call a meeting to protest against the proposal to de posit nightsoil from neighboring muni cipalities into the board's sewers at Malvern. Cr. Carroll said that as to the board putting up a receiving house in Mal vern,:it was never suggested. He be lieved he was right in saying that there were two receiving stations out side : .\.. The board was opposed to any sewerage being shot into their main sewers except on their western boundary, and that consequently there would be no such receptacle at Mal vern. Cr. Lewis said if these people were informed there was to be no receiv ing depot at Malvern, it ought to satisfy them. Cr. Carroll added that there was no necessity to call a public meetin...

Tooronga Progress League. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 23 May 1914

Tooronga Progress League. The Tooronga Progress League, another league which has been in existence for some time, and which has been formed to watch over the interests of the ratepayers in that portion of Malvern, wrote to the Mal vern Council on Monday last, relative to the following requirements:-(a) To request the Railway Commis sioners to make an inspection of the Glen Iris district. (b) To have trees planted in streets where charges have been made. (c) To take steps for making Carroll-crescent: - (d) To put Tooronga-road from railway to creek in repair, and (e) To urge provision of increased police protection. Mayor Wilson said that with the exception of clause (a) all the matters had been attended to. Cr. Carroll moved that the league be inform:d that all the matters had beCi attended to. With reference to clause (a), the Railway Commis sioners knew as much about Glen Iris as though they lived in the Glen Iris Valley. The motion was carried.

Rounders. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 23 May 1914

Rounders. Toorak v. Punt-road (played on Toorak's ground) resulted in a win for Punt-road by 16 runs, the scores being 48 to 32 runs. On the whole, it was a good game, for so early in the rounder season, and both teams shaped very well. Mr. George um pired, and both teams were pleased with the way in which he gave his de cisions. Armadale v. Spring-road (played on Armadale's ground) resulted in a win for Spring-road, the final scores being 31 to 27 rounders. In many respects the teams were evenly matched, and the game was a very exciting one. If Armadale had been more careful in their fielding, the victory would most probably have been a reverse one. The umpire, Miss Roe, was capable and very fair in her judgment, and both teams seemed well pleased. A rounder competition match for the Hon. D. Mackinnon Trophy will take place on Saturday between teams representing Malvern-road State School old girls and the Punt road State School old girls. The match will be played on the former's gr...

Municipal. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 23 May 1914

Municipal. When the time arrives for the es tablishment of a fourth ward in St. Kilda, it is expected there will be a goodly number of aspirants for muni cipal honors, and in all probability many of the present councillors will have to contest their seats. For many years past a good number of the councillors at present in the council have borne the burden and heat of the day, and much progressive legis lation has been introduced by them, so much so, that, in common fairness. students of municipal government must admit that not only is St. Kilda a well governed municipality, but the personnel of the council is of a high standard. Amongst the oldest of the councillors, without in any way in tending to be invidious, Mayor O'Don nell and Cr. Jacoby, in particular, have for years done excellent work for the ratepayers. They are as con versant with the Local Government Act and the requirements of the city as it is possible for any councillor in any municipality to be, and it goes without ...
