THE DRILL HALL. To the Editor of THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 31 January 1914

THE DRILL HALL. To the Editor of Tite ADVr.R'FiSEP.. Sir,-Probably the most surprised man in Footscray last Saturday was myself. Over the signatures of four very estimable citizens I saw it stated in The Advertiser that I had been guilty of a "savage" attack on them becauso I asked a few questions about the money raised locally for drill hall purposes. I was guilty too, it seums, of conveying to the average reader the sinister suggestion that the committee ha;s tot aC counted for monies donated and raised; that I ant, if not aecliberately guilty of these oftences. strangely ignotrant of matters of common knowledge which have already had publicity. All I can say in reply to this chastisement is that I really didn't mlean to offend; that I had not the slightest idea of being "savage," to use the polite term an plied to my humble epistle, anti that neither when I wrote that letter, nor at the present tinme, have I the slightest suspicion hut that lwhat theic committee did was honestly ...

WEIGHT OF BREAD. PROSPECTIVE PROSECUTIONS DISCUSSED. SHOULD COUNCIL OR COURT DISCRIMINATE? [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 31 January 1914

WEIGHT OF BREAD. bPROSPECTIVE PROSECU TIONS DISCUSSED. SHOULD COUNCLL OR COURT DISCRIMINATE? The question whether councillors should discriminate in the matter of ordering prosecutions in cases where they are advised that persons have been detected offending in a greater or lesser degree against the law, or whether all such cases should be taken to court and the magistrates allowed to discriminate was discussed at the meeting of the council on Tuesday cvening. Before them councillors had a re port from the city inspector, Mr M. C. Whitehead, to the effect that he had examined bread in the bakers carts and in eight cases found that certain loaves were below weight. In four instances the difference was said to be slight, roughly abouth Xths of an oz short per loaf ; in the others the variation was more pronounced. No names were given, the cases being distinguished by numbers so that councillors had no idea whom they were - directing prosecutions against; whom they proposed to al low t...

WANDERING CATTLE. A familiar figure at the local court is that of Mrs Annie Greatorex, she is a very respectable citizen, but she has one trouble -she cannot keep her cows from wandering. She was again lined at Thursday's court, and her frequent visits to the " Hall of Jus tice" caused Mr WV. Mitchell, J.P., to remark: " Is this her second offence, third offence, or thirty third offence ?" Mr Whitehead, city inspector, stated that Mrs Greatorex had already paid over £20 in fines, and had about 23 convictions against her. She had been advised by the police, as well as the inspector, to sell her cows. But, no I She keeps the cows, keeps on paying fines, and keeps on smiling every time.

FANCY GOODS' SALE. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 31 January 1914

FANGCY GOODS' SALE. When Mr Arnold Wittner decided some few months back that there was an opening in Footscray for a better class fancy goods emporium, he had his shop in Paisley street, opposite Grand Theatre, extended and, with his usual thoroughness, had new arcade windows, probably the most artistic and effective for the space available, in Footscray, fitted up. His stock, comprising thousands of articles of infinite variety, was a splendid one and all that was needed was a steady inflow of custom ors. B.ut experience has convinced Mr Wittner that the speculation was a had one. A fairly good business has been done but the demand for the siuperior class of goods stocked was not suffici uent to make the venture profitable. A continuous loss has resulted and Mr Wittner having decided to open a dif ferent class of business in the same premises, intends to make one loss of it and, by big reductions in prices, to clear his £2,500 stock within six weeks. Mr Wittner assures us that he c...
