Three miles out the slow pack were sighted, but not caught before the hares ran into tlhe Caulfield Racecourse.

Technical School for Prahran. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 30 May 1914
Technical School for Prahran. There is every prospect that in the very near future Prahran will be the proud possessor of a Technical School that should not only reflect :redit on the city, out s? *'U -. - The deputation from the Mechanics' Institute that waited on the Minister of Education had a good case. The proposal is for the committee of management of the Mechanics' to erect a Technical School on a site I . - ---A ; T4;h ctrft at a total cost of about 114,000, and the Government to supply the teach ing staff. Such advantageous offers are not showered upon the Govern ment every day, Naturally the Minister was delighteJ, and the inference is that the committee's offer will be accepted in due course It is understood that it is the com mittee's intention to retain sole control of both the Technical School and the present Mechanics' building site, at once a convenient and valu able one. A Technical School in Prahran wcu!d serve the needs of jistricts south of the Yarra, and its fut...
New Idea in Municipal Elections. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 30 May 1914
New Idea in Municipal Elections. Preferential voting in municipal elections is a new idea, and a motion, moved by C' G. N. Heyward, was unanimously passed by the Prahran Council that the Municipal Associa bion be asked to give the matter consideration with a view to having preferential voting adopted in muni oipal elections in future. From a local stanipoint the times when the occasions when preferential voting has been needed for municipal elec tions have been few, but that fact rather speaks in Its favor. There have been times when a third can. didate has stood down so as to prevent a splitting of votes. With the adoption of preferential voting, and with more than two candidates in the field, each would have an equal chance, with the addition of an equal right to p'ace his services at the disposal of the ratepayers.
Municipal. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 30 May 1914
Municipal. With the approach of next August interest in municipal elections is rising steadily and surely. In St. Kilda especially is this the case. As is well known, owing to the creation of an extra ward, making four in all, the whole of the present nine council lors will retire, and, if they desire to still retain a seat in the council, they will have to offer themselves for re election. The different Progress As sociations are watching matters care fully, but have not yet got into action in right down earnest. They see that their trouble will be to select candi dates, and hall mark them with the name of their association. So far not imore than two aspirants to municipal fame have been mentioned as likely to be nominated by any particular association. It is fully recognised that in this connection much care will have to be exercised. One as sociation (the West) has refused to officially nominate or suggest any candidate, while the others, up to the present, have as much idea as t...

Young Men Not Wanted as Bottle O's. A P.M.'S VIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 30 May 1914
Young Men Not Wanted as Bottle O's. A P.M.'S VIEW. At various times when an ap parently strong and vigorous young man has made application to the Prahran bench of Justices for a license to collect bottles and marine storts, a disinclination has been Shown to grant the requests; but so far there had been no actual with holding of licenses from those who had applied. However, a young man who applied the other day for a "bottle o" license received a refusal at the hands of Mr G. Read Murphy, P.M., who presided on the bench. In this instance the applicant was y oung man who said he was married. Mr Murphy said he was going to make it a practise to only grant license to old men, to whom the oc capation was more suited. If young men could not get work in town they should go into the country. Applicant-I am a married man, and cannot get any other work. hMr Murphy-you should go into te country. I am going to ask my colleagues not to grant collectors' liceoses to young men while there re old ...

Regulation of Street Traffic. ST. KILDA COUNCIL DISCUSSION. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 30 May 1914
Regulation of Street Traffic. -1---- ST. KILDA COUNCIL DISCUSSION. At the meeting of the St. Kilda Council on Monday evening last Cr Gibbs moved that the Chief Commissioner of Police be written to and asked to instruct the St. Kilda police to regulate vehicular traffic, especially by insisting upon it keep. ing to the proper order of the road. The council had asked the local police to take action, but without result. The traffic, he said, seemed to go along as it liked, and if the local police wouldn't regulate it, the best thing to do was to ask the Chief Commissioner to instruct them to do so. Cr Molesworth seconded the mo tion, and spoke adversely of the manner in which traffic was regu lated in the metropolitan area gene rally. He had seen narrow escapes from accidents. The Mayor (Cr O'Donnell) -Is not the motion a reflection on the local police ? Cr Gibbs-They are not doing their duty. The Mayor 'said two extra police had been sent to St. Kilda to assist in controlling the traf...

WEST ST. KILDA PROGRESS ASSOCIATION. LETTER TO COUNCIL. At the meeting, of the St. Kilda council on Monday evening last a communication was received from Mr E. A. \Valker, seoretary to the West St. Kilda Progress Associa tion, complaining of the neglected condition of the footpaths in Cowde roy and Fraser streets.. As to the latter street, Mr Walkersaid he had referred to the necessity for asphalt. ing in his letter of Nov. 13, and he trusted that the work, which was one of urgency, would be put in hand at an early date. The surveyor (Mr Kelly) reported that the footpaths on the south side of Fraser street and Cowderoy street, from Mary street to York street, had not been tarpaved. He estimated the cost of the work at £40. Cr Gibbs moved that the work be done, provided the ratepayers in terested were willing to pay half cost. Cr Barnet seconded the motion.

ST. MARY'S PARISH BALL [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 30 May 1914
ST. MARY'S PARISH BALL Messrs J. F. Toohey and J. F. Bermingham, joint hon. secretaries of a ball to be held in connection with the parish of St. Mary's, St. Kilda, wrote to the local council asking for the use of the Town Hall for July 15 at cbarity rates. The fact was brought under notice that the ball was in aid of the primary schools of theeparish, where some 300 children were educated. Fully two-thirds of them were free scholars, and the majority of them were supplied with boots and clothes by the Nuns to enable them to attend school every day. It was therefore felt that nothing more need be said in support of the application for the Town Hall at charity rates.-The matter was referred to the town hall committee. An application by Mrs Jacoby for a remission of the rent of the hall for the recent Ministering Children's League bazaar was granted.
