Street Architecture. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 13 June 1914

Street Architecture. The Royal Victorian Institute of Architects is sending circulars to municipal councils drawing atten tion to the necessity of adoptina uniform building regulations in th! metropolitan areas. Larger types oi buildings, it was pointed out, were now being proposed for or we' actually erected in the subur-' which neither in cubio capacity ot construction differed materially froa the larger buildings which wer? erected in the city of Melbourne, and which obviously needed the same special consideration by the municipal authorities as buildiogaof that class in the city of Melbourne actually did receive. The institute suggested that, in order to efficiently deal with the plans of the larger buildings, a board of reference should be appointed by the suburbia municipalities, whose work should be in that direction, and supp:emen tary to the work done by the muni cipal officers. With the support of municipal bodies the Ins:itute of Architects would take steps to see the Min...

Federal Politics -the Double Dissolution. Australia will again shortly be in the throes of a General Election, the Governor-General(Sir Donald Munro Fergison) having, on the advice of the Cook (Liberal) Government, (ranted a dissolution of both Houses if the National Parliament (Repre sentatives and Senate). The main reason for the dissolution is generally understood. The Government Pre ference to Unionists Abolition Bill the principle of preference to unionists had been legalised by the previous Fisher (Labor) Government-had been twice passed by the House of Representatives, and twice rejected by the Senate, and thus, under the surrounding circumstances of the case, and in view of Section 57 of the Constitution, it was within the power of the Governor-General to grant a dissolution of both Houses. On the advice tendered him by his responsible Ministers, the Governor General has seen fit to exercise this power. It was an open secret that a dissolution of either one of both Houses wa...

St. Kilda Ladies' Baths. AN UNDECIDED COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 13 June 1914

St. Kilda Ladies' Baths. AN UNDECIDED COUNCIL. The Public Works Committee of the St. Kilda Council on Tuesday evening brought up a recommendation-"That in view of the intimation that the present lessees of the site of the ladies' baths do not intend to rebuild, the. Lands Department be asked to issue instructions for the early re moval of the dilapidated structure. Also, that the department be informed it is not the council's intention at pre sent to take any action in regard to providing ladies' baths." .;Cr. Love pointed out- that at pre sent there was no bathing accommoda tion for ladies alone. The baths re cently devoted to women seemed to be now the permanent home of mixed bathing. The Mayor (Cr.

Municipal. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 13 June 1914

Municipal. The Federal elections having been fixed for early in September, there is a probability that the annual municipal elections (to be held on the fourth Thursday in August) will be some r what overshadowed by the political - excitement that is certain to be ram pant at the time. This is a pity, as ratepayers will be liable to lose much - of the interest in the municipal elec t tions which they otherwise would" have. Naturally, the interests of a nation are of more importance than those of a municipality, which appears but a speck on the map of the nation; but for all that there is no fear of the ratepayers giving the municipal eleci tions the absolute go-by. There is I an old saying that a man cannot serve tw, masters, but by no means is it an impossibility for a ratepayer to serve the Federal situation and look I after the:interests'of his municipality at or about the same time. In St. Kilda the Progress Associa tions have not yet put their brands on any particular candidate...
