VALUATION OF GAS MAINS [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 17 October 1914

VALUATION OF GAS MAINS At the previoies meeting of the Footscray council it was agreed that the sum of /ro be voted toward the cost of obtainina__ new aliiation of 'tne gas company s main in this city (wortking in conjunction with the municipalities) and this came up for ratification on Monday last. Cr Shillabeer, who was not present at the previous meeting, said that the proposal to spend {Io would be an utter waste of money. It was an easy matter for them to carry out their own valuation. The method proposed would be no improvement on their present system-~I50 for each ward, which brought them i20 per year for rates. Cr Drew favored the appointment of a valuer. Cr Bell-Of course, we have no guarantee that the other municipal ities will take us in. Crs McDonald and Pearce favored paying their share of the cost. A new valuation would mean more revenue.

PATRIOTIC FUND. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 17 October 1914

PATRIOTIC FUND. There is every indication that the war is going to boea long one and that before peace is restored every country in the world is going to feel the strain. And the probabilities are that the con tingents already formed in Australia will have to be followed by many more. As part of the British Empire; as an overseas ldependency that Germany has long coveted, the very existence of Aus tralia as a land of freedom and progress, is involved in the struggle and it there fore becomes the duty of everyone who prefers freedom to assist to the fullest possible extent, in bringing suc cess to the arms of the allied nations. This is no time to dliscuss the ethics of war. The boastful Prussians have taken the initiative and the threatened coun tries have to delend themselves. It is not possible for every man in Aus tralia to go to the front, but it is possi ble for everyone to do something to assist. Friends to sudcour the bereav ed relatives of those who fall or are wounded are n...

TREATMENT OF MEASLES. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 17 October 1914

2'REATAENT OF MEASLES. The South Melbourne Council in a communication to the Footscray Council on Monday last asked that they would support a proposal that the Queen's Memorial Infectious Diseases Hospital be made available for measles cases. Cr Pearce said that if a resolution of that character was carried the municipalities interested might have to erect further buildings, as, at present, the necessary accommoda tion was not available. Certainly there were some buildings but they were said to be unsuitable. It would mean a large expenditure for the municipalities. The question had often been considered before at the meetings of the Infectious Diseases Hospital committee and he thought they might \vell refer the matter to their representative (Cr, Cash.) Cr Shillabeer thought the question might be referred to the Health com mittee of the council and the health officer. He considered the Infect ious Diseases Hospital was the pro per place to take such cases and it wvould be a great ...

The Demand for a proprielary medicine is the surest indmcation of itS popsularity and of its usefulncss.

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 17 October 1914

Before the council finally ratifies its regulation to prevent the littering of the streets with handbills, &c., there are some points that should be carefully considered. The object of the regula tion is admittedly admirable. I or years The Advertiser 4as been making an appeal for tidiness and a long step in that direction will be the prohibition of hand to hand delivery of bills in the principal streets of the city. But it is not quite clear that the bye-law will stop at that. Its reading bears the construction that after its adoption it will be an offence to deliver bills and circulars by hand at residences. If that once becomes the law of our city local business folk and promoters of public entertainment will be severly handi capped, while residents deprived of the opportunity of receiving business noti fications etc, will suffer some degree of loss. The firm that has something to sell needs an easy avenue to let the prospective purchaser know of it ; the person who wants...
