No Title [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 31 January 1914
THE loan proposal of £42,000 will come before the Council on Tuesday next. Mr W. Pitt, architect, will recommend that the award of Z50 offered for the best d, sign for a Town Hall be made to a City architect who has pictured a plain but decent and Bubstantial building as one that can be erected for the amount estimated and will be worthy of one of the oldest municipalities in the State, The de sign does not prejudice the selection of a site, for it is a rectangular building that can be ereoted anywhere, The objection to Lyons street gardens is that if the building is not to be hidden, valuable trees must be cut down, In live or ten years tine, very few vacant blocks suitable for a Town Hall will be left; ihile such blocks exist, there is no excuse for either obscuring a £12,000 building among the trees or cutting down trees of 30 years' growth to make room for a building. The selection of the site, however, is re garded as provisional; it has not been made the subject of a substanti...

HOUSE CLEANING MADE EASY. ONE of the most difficoult problems in oann neotion with house work which confronts every householder especially during summer months, is how to keep the place tree from dust without spending many hours over the tank. Until the advent of theo proesent up-to-dato meothod, the housewife spent hours eabch day swoop. log the carpets and linoleum with an or. dinary broom only to transfer the doust to all artioles of furniture which had to be gone over with a cloth, she breathing in the meantime into the lungs, germs, which were the forerunnera of the throat and lung trouble, Housneework under these conditions was cewtainly a drud. gory nod we can sympathise with maids who prefer any sort of shop or business life rather than face the death dealing duet from the average carpet when owept under such conditions. The broom can never rid a carpet of dust, it can only disturb it and make more work to do, but with the advent of the Daisy Vacouum OCleaners all the drukge...

ELECTRIC LIGHT SCHEME. PREPARATION OF PLANS. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 31 January 1914
ELECTRIC LICGHT SCHEME. PREPARATION OP PLANS. MESSRS McCarthy and Underwood, electrical engineers, who have been entrusted with the preparation of plans for the lighting of the town by elec tricity, have the work in a forward state and will have their work completed before the City Council announces whether if can supply power or not. The City Council, about two munths ago, determined to get legal opinion as to its position. The question to be de. cided was not the sale of electric power at its boundary as has been done with the Brunswick, Footscray and Port Melbourne Councils; but whether it could go outside its own limits to supply W\Villiamstown. The delay in yiving an answer is due to the fact that Mr E F. Mitchell, K.C., to whom the matter was referred, was abset in England to appear in some Privy Council appeals; but he has now completed that work and his opinion is expected within the next two or three weeks,
