Patriotic Hawthorn. Red Cross Work. [Newspaper Article] — Hawthorn, Kew, Camberwell Citizen — 1 January 1915

Patriotic Hawthorn. Red Cross Work. The scourge of war is upon us with all its horrors and miseries, and it behoves us to seriously consider the question: What is the object of war? Clausewitz defined it as "to impose our will on that of our enemy by either' annihilating or damaging him, or warding him off; or maybe we want him to do, or to give up what is to our 'advantage," and that is exactly, what Germany has set out to do in the present war-to damage and take from others that which vwould be to her advantage, and has ad.opted, with all her boastful cul ture, a " blood. and iron " method in hler brigandage which will never be forgotten. Germany, with a population of close on 70,000,000, on an area which is only a fraction of that of Australia, and increasing at the rate of about i,ooo,ooo annually, finds that she is being, cramped for room to allow, for-the expansion and uti lisation of her ever-increasing popu lation, and her trade and commerce has been expanding in every direc...

ENGINEER'S REPORT. yICTORIA ROAD BRIDGE-The plans for strengthening and making this bridge suitable for the tramway trafflo has also been submitted to me for approval, and it is also strengthening by putting in an extra column in each pier, and an extra girder is put in the ' center of each span, but no footpath is provided. These additions should meet the tramway requirements, but the want of a footpath on each side will certainly be a drawback to foot traffic across the bridge. WALLEN ROAD BRIDGE-The plans for strengthening and making the Wallen road bridge suitable for the tramway traffic has been submitted to me, and the method adopted in strengthening the bridge should be very effective. The present bridge is to remain as it stands except that an extra column is placed in the centre of each pier, and it is to be .well braced on to those now standing, and a box girder is run along the whole length to support the present cross girders.

SUNDAY MORNING TRAMS [Newspaper Article] — Hawthorn, Kew, Camberwell Citizen — 1 January 1915

SUNDAY MORNING) TRAMS The proposal by Prahran-Malvern Trust to run a service of Sunday morn ing trams from Deepdene to St. Kilda was discussed. The finance committee recommended that the council agrees to the Order in Council being amended so as to allow of double fares -being charged on Sunday mornings, with a fare of 3d. Cr. Russell said the council had already affirmed the principle of Sun day morning trams, but the Trust would not run them unless double fares were charged. Although he moved the recommendation, his opinion was that, seeing St. Kilda, Prahran, Malvern and KeI had already objected to the proposed amendment of the Order in Council, the proposal to run Sunday morning trams was doomed. Cr Roche said he did not wish to see a Continental. Sunday in Melbourne, and would oppose the recommendation The Mayor (Cr. Rigby) and Ors. Mackay, Roche and Lord strongly opposed the Sunday morning service, the lastnamed contending there was no demand for such a service. Cr. Russell: T...

There were about 500 skaters onl the ornamen tal water and 2,000 spectators watched them froim the hanks. Sud denly, without any warning, the ice at the sides gave Way; and.in a few seconds the entirie sheet split up into fragments a few -.yards. square. At least 200 were at- one time struggling in the water and scream ing for help. Many went -down without any chance of recovery.

Forty-one people were drowned; but Mr. Ward escaped, to again nearly lose his life in a di saster at 'Nice Opera House on March 21, 1881. He was among the 150 people present when, soon after...

As the sun disappeared :,behind the Brazilian hills, anld evening loomed darkly, a hirried funeiial service was held on board, and the body of Peter McNeal, the '.Scottish boat swain, was launched into' the deep.
