DEFERRED WORKS. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 29 August 1914

DEFERRED WORKS. At the Footscray Council meeting the city engineer, Mr Neylan, submitted several reports on cost of various works required in different parts of the district He was asked to submit them. fe will probably be asked to submit many more-the bulk of his valuable time is wasted in submitting estimates-for works not likely to be carried out. It would appear more businesslike were coun cillors to sit down for a few minutes and ask themselves before these indis criminate requests are made, whether the money is available to carry the work out. By doing that much valu able time might be saved. To asphalt Cross street on the north side would cost £4o--that is the Council's share; from Francis st, to Geelong road would cost (g9o. Cr Harris-This is an important thoroughfare serving a large number of residents and I should like to see the work done. Cr Johnson-I would like to see the work put in hand but I think we had better defer consideration till next Monday night, when the fin...

FOOTSCRAY CRICKET CLUB. SUCCESSFUL ANNUAL MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 29 August 1914

FOOTSC'IRA Y CRICKET ('I. U1. SUCCESSFUL ANNUAL MEETING. When two seasons back the Foots cray Cricket Club entered senior ranks andl forsook matting for turf wickets it was not expected that its players would immediately make their mark. Rather was it recognised that they had a hard row to hoe and tlhat before they ranked with tile leading teams in the competi tion they would have to suffer some discouraging reverses. So it has proved but the players Ihave met their reverses in true sportsmanlike spirit, using their experiences to assist them in succeeding engagements with the result that thus early mn their career as senior players they have very creditable victories ta their credit and have established the reputation of being a hard team to beat -a team that even the best teams ill sub. district cricket could not take liber ties withi. Shortly put it may fairly be said that their progress on turf has been good.and, given a fair measure of local support, andi the encouragement and ...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 29 August 1914

If genuine in its desire to assist in finding employment during the present time of partial distress, local council lors cannot do better than float an im provement loan for the construction of the whole of the private streets and lanes set out in the surveyor's schedule presented to the council on Monday evening. By this means much work would be provided and great good to the district and the community would accrue without inflicting any undue hardship upon anyone. Under the system previously employed owners of property abutting on private streets were required to deposit the whole of the amount for which they were liable which frequently fell heavily on per sons struggling to secure a home of their own. Under the improvement loan system the amounts due can be repaid over a term of years, with added interest at the rate of 5 per cent. Thus for a small annual payment property owners are provided with decent streets and paths ; the value of their respective properties are increased, ...

SOCCER. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 5 September 1914

SOCCER. Northumberland and Durham United last week visited Prahran, who are firmly fixed at the foot of the League table. The locals were at full strength but Prahran had difficulty in raising a full team. Playing with the wind Prahran opened strongly, but N. and D. soon took command. C. Weston opened the scoring with a lucky goal, the wind tak ing the ball back when it seemed to be going over. The same player scored the second from a square pass by Mars den. The half-time the score was 2-0 in the visitors favour. In the second half playinag with the wind N. and D. had all the play. H. Weston scored, shortly followed by B. Stevens, then H. Weston again with the best goal ont the match. N and D. thus ran out easy winners by 5 goals to 0. To-day the locals play Yarraville at Yarraville and should at least divide the points, well as their opponents have been playing lately. Last Saturday N. and D. United in conjunction with the Northumberland'and Durham Associa tion, held a social and ...

THE GREATEST FORCE. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 5 September 1914

THE GREA TEST FORCE. Of all the forces in the world the force of education is the greatest. Sir John Gorst, the eminent statesman, once said "I fear not Germany's war ships but her technical schools". He meant thereby that education of her workmen was a greater menance than her dreadnoughts. Since these words were spoken Britain and her colonies have made great amends for past dila toriness. Many schools have come into existence of late years making for the efficency of workers in technical science. The greatest institution in the world that is carrying on a world wide and national propaganda in the art of education is, perhaps, the International Correspondence Schools. Twenty-three years ago the I.C.S. enrolled its first postal student which was the beginning of- a new era in education. So perfect a method did it prove and such a necessary requirement did it fulfil that 25,000 students have been enrolled since its inauguration. The I.C.S. teach over 200 subjects ranging from mechni...

BAND OARNIVAL. GREAT SUCCESS ASSURED. The management of the Footscray Municipal Band Carnival say they are sparing no expense in making the forthcoming event one of the largest successes introduced to the public of this city. At a meeting of the sports commit ee held last week at which Mr Johnstone presided, the ,correspondence consisted of no fewer than 40 replies from the various organisations and trades people who signified their intention of co operat ing and assisting the band in this undertaking. The chairman also informed the meeting that the various business firms in the metropolitan area intend taking an active part in the poster advertising and fancy dress procession, and that elaborate decoras tions are being prepared.

TRAMWAY PROPOSAL FOOTSCRAY LEFT LAMENTING. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 5 September 1914

TRAKa WA1 PROPOSAL :,FOOTSCRAY LEFT LAMENT. ING. As predicted in this journal the presentation of a report favoring the construction of a tramway to connect Esseodon with Footscray by way of Maribyinong, with the assured pros pects of disastrous losses has had the effect of throwing ridicule on the whole proposal and leaves Foots cray worse off than if the matter had never been taken in hand. Common. sense should have shown any person of average intelligence that only by capturing the heavy race, show anl direct traffic by means of a bridge and connection across the river at the rear of the Flemington race course could the tramway have been made a success. But because this route was advocated in "The Ad vertiser " a contemporary must needs advocate another, and of all things recommended a line running through between three and four miles of flat, unoccupied and uninviting territory and starting at a point as far from the business centre of Essendon as is Nicholson street by the dire...

Jamieson (choirmun of the leootucray Purk Com mittee) set out on a visit of inspection on the suggestion of Cr Shillabeer, of gates at Kew, Hawthorn and Camber well, thought to be suitable for the park entrance. Several designs were inspected and one at Hawthorn ap peared to take the eye of thlse interest ed and Mr Neylan will probably submit a recommendation to the council and the work of building an entrance will be shortly put in hand. On the return journey the party paid a call to the Hawthorn Town Hall, were courteously received; shown over the various de partments ; asked to sign the visitors' ook and finally were entertained at refreshments in the Mayor's room.

THE PATRIOTIC FUND OVER £1000 COLLECTED LOCALLY [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 5 September 1914

THE PATRIOTIC FUND OVER £1000 COLLECTED LOCALLY It may now fairly be said that numbers of Footscray residents have shown their patriotistu in a practical form, and with the total steadily ad vancing to the £1000 mark, there is reason to hope that the fund, ore it closes, will reach a sum that will place Footscray, as usual, far ahead of any other suburb, and be worthy of a district that recognises its duty and does it. It should not be thought, however, that the effort is yet suc cossful. Unlimited money is needed to safeguard the relalltos of those who have gone to the front, and those who lmay return wounded and incap able, from want, and, with other con tingents forming, it is necessary that. the call for funlltlds should continue to sound.
