Cr Liston did not think it was piece of cheek. If hle was paying his rates he was entitled to consideration. If ho was representing an Australian Company, his letter should be con sidered with the others, for it had been decided to prefer Australian Com paniei.

NO LICENSE LEAGUE. MEETING AT HOLY TRINITY HALL. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 14 November 1914

1O0 LICE?SE LEABGUE. A1IHTINO AT HOLY TRItIITY HALL, A No-License meeting was held at holy rrinity school hall on Monday evening mnd well attended, Rev, Frank Lynch being in the chair. There was some very lively and im Lressive chorus singing by the choir, some of the successes of the recent zoncert being repeated. "Empire and Nlothlerland" and "The Torchbearers" were well received and the last named was particularly well rendered, Miss Browne presiding at the pianoforte and conducting. The chairman said the temperance people had given up the old ideas. The line that it was taking was that of solid reason and persuasion. It was not the emotional method, though the man, young or old, who had no en thusiasm would not do much, The enthusiasm of temperance oratory, how ever, often lacked a solid foundation of definite facts. Quotable figures and accurate statements were needed. Hundreds of advocates and millions of rankers and filers were needed. The majority could be won by passionate ...

Cr Oravell-I move as an amend ment that it he referred to the Fnance Committee. Cr Treganowan neconded the amend mont.

THE WORKS COMMITTEE. AN ALL ROUND DISCUSSION. THE HORSE AND DRAY HIRE. EXPERTS ON METAL SPREADING. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 14 November 1914

THE WORKS COMMITTEE. C AN ALL ROUND DICOUfSION. THE IIORSEI AND DRAY HIIRI. ,OXPERTEJ ON METAL SPREADINGC. urE Public Works Committee was in t communicative mood on Tuesday , ovening. Councillors did not hesitato a ;o place the ripe fruits of their life-long I study of pitcher setting, metal-spread ng, stone carting, spall cracking and road formation before an audience of about half-a-dozen in the strangers' ;allery. Councillor Hick had been timing the horses and drays without a stop watch and from his observations it appeared that the horses employed by the municipality would not have an outside chance in a hack race and they appear to be qualifying for an under takers' service. Or, Hick supplemented his remarks on the dray hire question by some advice on road construction. He did not like the way the metal was being spread in Home road; in fact he was not sure where it was going to; per haps the contractor was not using it on the job. Or, Hurst expressed the opinion that the quant...

Facts and Fancies. Millions of Mt tclies. It has been estimated that for each minute of time the civilised nations of the wotrld st:ike 3,00oo,oo000 matches. This is said to be the average for every minute of the twenty-four hours of the day. Fifteen hundred billion is the number for the entire year. Small and insignificant as it is, the match demands as mluch attention IOs the choice of woods involved as any other forest prodluct. Only thle choic .est portions of the best trees are suit able. Sapwood and knotty or cioss grained wood will not do, Instead of being a by--product, the little match is turned out in mills where the by-pro ducts are bulky objects like doors, sash, shingles, sidings, posts, -'tc.
