Melbourne Cable Tramway. PREPARATIONS FOR 1916. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 20 June 1914
Melbourne Cable Tramway. PREPARATIONS FOR 1916. Speaking at the Prahran Council meeting on Monday evening in re ference to the municipalities taking over the Melbourne cable tramway system in 1916, Cr. Embling said that as the council seldom received reports from their representative (Cr. Scott) as to the doings of the Melbourne Tramway Trust, he (Cr. Embling) sin cerely hoped that something was be ing done. As a sharebroker he would say "Keep quiet. It will be a grand thing for the shareholders." As a municipal councillor, however, and speaking in the interests of the rate payers, something should be known as to the future intentions of the trust. He had been informed that under the various acts under which the Tram way Trust worked there was no pro vision for the trust to borrow money to run the trams. If that were so the trust should come to the councils at once, and ask them to urge Parliament to give them the necessary power. He had been informed that even though a price were a...

Cr Morris Speaks a word about Mr Cameron. ----4-- Cra Nicolson and Chambers rebuke Cr Morris. Speaking at the Prahran City Council meeting on Monday evening Cr Chambers, who reported on tram. way matters in the absence of Cr Naylor, made reference to the fact that Mr A. Cameron, chairman of the Prahran and Malvern Tramway Trust, had publicly stated that he had never given his sanction for his name to be submitted for the posi tion of chairman of the recently formed Hawthorn Tramway Trust. Cr Morris-If he had come out on top and been elected, we would have heard nothing about this. (Oh 1) Cr Nicolson (sharply)-Such a remark should not be made in this council. Mr Cameron is an honorable man, and we must take his word that he did not submit his name for the chairmanship of this new Trust. Cr Chambers-It is with a tone of great regret that 1 heard Cr Morris make the remark he did. Mr Cameron is a man of honor, whose word is his bond.

Federal Politics. Hon. W. Watt, State Premier, to stand for Balaclava. In response to requests made to him by Liberal organisations, the Hon. W. Watt, the State Premier, has decided to stand for the Bala clava constituency. He has resigned the position of Premier, and has been succeeded by Sir Alexander Peacock. Dr J. R.

Bowling. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 27 June 1914
Bowling. BY BOWLER. The Richmond Union tournament concluded on Saturday last, and re sulted in a victory for A. P. Dredge's Hawthorn rink, which beat W. C. Davis (City) by 17 to 5. The big gap between the points scored by the two teams in the final was rather an inglorious ending to whLt has otherwise proved an interesting and closely played tournament throughout. Third and fourth prizes were divided between Frank lin, of Ascot Vale, and Sutton, of Armadale. The Richmond Union oficials were warmly congratulated on the excellent arrangements that had been made for the conduct of the tournament. With the exception of a few straggling games that will inevitably take place amongst keen enthusiasts, bowls may now be considered to be shut down for the season. How strange it seems. You talk about bowls being a summer pastime, and yet here am I penning these lines sitting in front of a fire fit to roast an ox! More than that. I have yet to brave the frosty atmosphere to post them to you, Mr...
Vacant Piece of Land in West St. Kilda. DEPARTMENT'S DOG IN THE MANGER POLICY. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 27 June 1914
Vacant Piece of Land in West St. Kilda. DEPARTMENT'S DOG IN THE MANGER POLICY. At the meeting of the St. Kilda City Council on Monday evening, a communication was received from the Lands Department, intimating that it was not prepared to consent to the council's application to grant permissive occupancy of the piece of vacant land at the oorndr of York and Cowderoy streets. This is a piece of land, as explained bythe Town Clerk, that was origi cally set aside for educational purposes in 1875. It was in a neglected state, and the Council is endeavoring to secure control over it, at the suggestion of the West St. Kilda Progress Association, so that it could be made an acquisition to the district. At present it was merely an eyesore. Cr Barnet said it was evident that the land was not going to be used for school purposes, and it was a dog in the manger policy on the part of the Education Department to object to it being handed over to the con. trol of the Council. Cr Love suggested tha...
Street Lighting. ADVANCE IN ST. KILDA. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 27 June 1914
Street Lighting. ADVANCE IN ST. KILDA. The St. Kilda council has de cided to greatly improve its system of street lighting, and at its meeting on Monday several additional lamps were authorised, on the recommen dation of the lighting committee. Cr Jacoby said the council spent an enormous sum on lighting, and St. Kilda was better lighted than any other suburb. St. Kilda had always been pioneers in the matter of light ing. Things would still better im prove when they had the high pres sure lights in Fitzroy street and other parts of the city. Cr Hewison thought that in addi tion to Fitzroy street and the Espla nade, there were other streets where lamps were necessary so that people could avoid the puddles. More light was needed south of Dickens street. CrJacoby-We only have a cer tain amount of money. The com mittee is doing its very best. Cr Gibbs pointed out that 14 of the latest allocation of lamps had gone to the South ward.
