ITEMS OF NEWS. Bathing Regulations. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 6 February 1915
ITEMS OF NEfWS. : Bathing Regulations. An interesting point has been raised in regard to the bathing re gulations enacted by the Williams town, Pori't Melbohrne, South Mel bourne, and St. Kilda Councils. In drawing up these by-laws,. the coun cils have used the powers given them under part 9 of the 13th schedule of the Local Government Act. It is contended, however, that in so far as the territory within the jurisdic tion of the Melbourne Harbor Trust distion of the Melbourne Harbor is concerned, the bathing regulations are ultra vires, as such by-laws can only be made by the trust. The ter ritory of the trust takes in the three frst-mentioned districts, and that portion of St. Kilda north of Fitzroy Street. It is maintained that in a test case a bather who had been pro secuted for a breach of the bathieg Sregulations within the area cQn trolled by the trust would. win his case.

Level of Barlow Street. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 6 February 1915
Level of Barlow Street. Port Melbourne is very level, con sequently the "fall" for water is lim ited to an inch or two in various parts of the town. "Have you ever heard of such a place as Barlow Street?" remarked Cr. Sinclair at the last council meeting; "it appears to be lower than Nott Street, and the water gets under the houses and remains there." The surveyor ex plained that Barlow Street was not lower than Nott Street channels, but when rain fell the water backed up and might flow into Barlow Street.

Russell, as follows: "That this meeting of Port Mel bourne residents protests strongly against the continued increases in the price of bread; considering that in such 'a time of crisis and unemploy ment the bakers should be prepared to bear a share of the sacrifice im posed on all Britishers through the war, aind furthermore, pledge our selves to abstain from patronising any baker who insists on the in crease, and to bake scones and bread ourselves."
