A GALLOP IN BAY STREET. Two South Yarra Lads Surprised. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 13 February 1915
SA GALLOP IN BAY STREET. Two South Yarra Lads Surprised. From what was related ast the local court on Thursday by Harry Anderson and Reginald Martin, both 19 years of age and residing at Hope street, South Yarra, they each hired a horse from Coffey's livery stable and set out to enjoy a ride, it being A.N.A. day. On reaching Bay-street, after having visited Footscray, An derson, who admitted not being ac customed to riding, says he became tired, and setting his mount into a walk. rested himself on one side of the saddle. In doing so his spur ac cidentally sntartled the animal and it galloped away. Martin followed. If the statement made by these two refined looking young men is correct, it was unfortunate for them that Constable Parmenter happened to. be in the street as they galloped by, because he boarded a tram and over took them after they had settled down. Subsequently they were charg ed with furiously riding horses on the 1st February. Parmenter, in evi dence, said that Anderso...

COUNCIL'S BANKING AFFAIRS. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 13 February 1915
COUNCIL'S BANKING AFFAIRS. When considering the question of changing the CounciP's current ac count, on Tuesday evening Cr. Walter moved that the Council only change the account when the Commonwealth Bank started a branch at Port Mel bourne. Cr. Gill seconded the motion. Cr. Morris opposed the motion. The changing of the account was irrelevant to the question at issue. They were not being urged to shift their banking business, therefore there was no nece.sity for the motion. Crs. Howe and Crichton took a similar view. On being put, the motion was lost. Cr. Gill called for a divisibn with the following result-In favor, Crs. Wal ter, Gill; and the Mayor; against;, Crs. Morris, Sinclair, Tucker, Page, Howe, and Crichton.

ELECTRIC SPARKS. Geelong cricketers have set Poi.t onians a solid task. The locals will need to make 244 to reach the first innings score. The P.M. Football Club's annual meeting will take place in the Town Hall on Monday, March 1st. See advt. in this issue. The Waterman benefit committee meet next Wednesday at Mr. J. Pur cell's Australian Eleven Hotel, oppo site police station, at 8 p.m. Banks MI'Coll, playing for Ports against Geelong at the Corio oval on Saturday, was "no-balled" twice by Sthe umpire (Norton) for throwing. In consequence of necessary pre liminaries it is .considered unlikely that the Council relief works under the loan scheme will commence be fore the 1st of May. The Commonwealth Bank has agreed to extend the loan of £14,000 to 30 years, in lieu of 20 years as suggested. The money has now de finitely been arranged for.

UNNATURAL NOISES. Cause Not Ascertained. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 13 February 1915
UNNATURAL NOISES. Cause Not Ascertained. Curiosity has been aronsedl in Port Melbourne in corisequence of thump ings and rappings which have taken place at a house in Cruickshank street, which are said to take place between 10.30 and 3 a.m. nightly. Throughout the week the police have attended the premises in an effort to elucidate the mystery, but so far failed. In the meantime, crowds gather in the vicinity nightly, their presence causing great annoyance to residents in the vicinity. What the noises are or how they are being caused has yet to be solved, but no doubt when a solu tion is arrived at it will be found in some defect in underground water or gas pipes. It is too much to expect one to believe that they arise from anything spiritual, as is generally ac cepted.

Not the least-important feature of the camp was the great care exe...
"ALLIES" FAIR. At Methodist School Hall. Opened by Minister of Education. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 13 February 1915
"ALLIES'" FAIR. At Methodist School Hall. Opened by Minister of Education. The large assemblage at the Gra ham street Methodist school hall, on Thursday evening must have glad dened the hearts of those who had devoted their labor in anticipation of the erection of a kindergarten in con nection with the church. The hall was a spectacle of bril liancy and attraction. As the title of the fair would indicate the various stalls were representative of those countries associated with the com mon cause of Great Britain in the great European war, and the attire of the assistants in most instances characteristic. "Rule Britannia," a fancy stall, occupying a central posi tion, and presided over by ?Mrs. Joyce. was well furnished with use ful articles of a fancy description. The girls' stall, in charge of the Misses Baker and Briggs, was repre sentative of Belgium,-- while the "sweefs" stall, I;-"bvr which Miss Gladys Joyce presided, was dedi ecated to our worthy supporters in France.

IN THE GARDEN. "Methinks I scenti the morning air," ex claimed the blue-eyed Violet, m1aking with the dawn. "'Oh, indeed!" replied the*'stately Rose, shaking the dew drops from her dainty petals, "then where do I-come in?" '"In the golden Summer-time," put in the modest Daisy, blushing crimson. '"Oh, dear!" cried the Violet, eager to ex plain, "Don't be annoyed with-me, - sweet Rose, I was merely quoting S Shakespeare."

Council's Request Conceded. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 13 February 1915
Council's Request Conceded. On Wednesday, the Mayor (Cr. T. Smith) accompanied by the town clerk, (Mr. A. V. Heath), made re presentations to the manager of the Commonwealth Bank, pointing out that the term of 20 years stipnlated was too short. The Mayor explained that during present conditions it would be impossible to increase the rate, and the town's valuation would decrease in consequence of the re morval of unumerous properties in con sequence of Harbor Trlst under takings. Ultimately the manager agreed to extend the loan to 30 years, and negotiations on that basis were settled.
