Armadale Baptist Church. SIXTEENTH THANKSGIVING CELEBRATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 13 June 1914
Armadale Baptist Church. SIXTEENTH THANKSGIVING CELEBRATIONS. Ever since the formation of the :Armadale Baptist Church and Sunday School, together with its kindred in stitutions, the sixteenth anniversary of which was celebrated on Sunday last by special services, and on Wed nesday evening by a modern tea and public meeting, the policy of the church has been distinctly one of pro gress. The minister, Rev. Alex. Gordon, M.A., the church secretary, Mr. W. W. Stephens, and the officers have so skilfully managed all the multifarious duties inseparably asso ciated with church life, that the highest ideals have ever been sought, with the most gratifying results. From the financial standpoint the policy of refraining from bazaars and similar aids has been an exceptionally wise one, and a straight-out thanks giving offering on anniversary Sunday has enabled the church treasurer to always present a most satisfactory balance-sheet each year. The success of the' direct offering has been de mon...
Sunday Picture Shows in St. Kilda. TOO MANY SPRINGING UP. PROPOSAL TO ABOLISH THE LOT. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 13 June 1914
Sunday Picture Shows in St. Kilda. TOO MANY SPRINGING UP. PROPOSAL TO ABOLISH THE LOT. At the St. Kilda Council meeting on Tuesday evening Cr Jacoby gave notice of motion with the view to the abolition of picture shows on the Esplanade on Sunday evenings. The wording of the motion is as follows "That a regulation of the city, to be numbered 19, be and is hereby made for repealing regulation No. 18, which permits certain places of public amusement to be open on Sunday.'" It was subsequently mentioned by Cr Jacoby that his reason for seeking to abolish the Sunday picture shows was that since the passing of the regulation allowing certain picture shows on the Esplanade to open on Sunday evenings others had also sprung into existence. and even a picture show not on the Esplanade was also opening on Sunday even ings. Therefore (considers Cr Jacoby) the best course to adopt is to shut up the whole lot. A recommendation by the public works committee was adopted as follows-" That considerat...
