Our Commonwealth. (TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 27 June 1914

Our Commonwealth. (TO THE EDITOR.) Sir,-In September next the electors of the Federation will again have the privilege of choosing those whom they wish to make our laws and manage our concerns for some time to come. The Leagues, Unions, and other political organisations are busy pre paring for what is expected to be the hardest political battle since we became a Commonwealth. To those of us who are deeply in terested in our present social up heaval the impression grows that we are anything but equipped for the task that is before us. The urgent need at present is men, men of ability and principle, men who are able to take a wise and comprehen sive view of the present as well as the future needs of this great Aus tralian Continent, and not a so-called politician, who is tied hand and foot to party disoipline, and whose thought is-I'm safe on this ticket. One may be inclined to consider that for some years men offering for public positions have somewhat de teriorated in ability, I wou...

Prahran Lending Library. MAKING PROGRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 27 June 1914

Prahran Lending Library. MAKING PROGRESS. The work of stocking the newly established Prabran Lending Li brary is proceeding steadily, under the management of Mr A. E. MoMicken, librarian, aided by his assistant, Mr Edwards. The shelves or the greater part will be filled with up to date literature, and those who are to have books handed out to them free, gratis and for nothing will be surprised when they see what lovely books are being prepared for them. Of course, the work of pre paration cannot be rushed forward. Its a tedious job inspecting, cata loging, shelving, &c., a few thousand volumes. The ceremony of handing out the first book on hire is expected to take place some time in August. Probably Mayor Willis, if things are ready before his term of office is up, will be handed the first book. His ortship took much interest in the ormalion of the lending library.

People's Liberal Party. A ST. KILDA "AT HOME." [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 27 June 1914

People's Liberal Party. A ST. KILDA "AT HOME." Under the auspices of the Bala clava and St. Kilda women's branches of the People's Liberal Party, an at home was held in the library at the St. Kilda Town Hall on Wednesday afternoon. There was a large attendance, and the chair was occupied by Mr Capper Moore. Mr J. Hume Cook delivered an address. He said that contrary to the wishes of the Labor Party in Federal politics there was to be a double dissolution, although the attitude they had assumed prior to the granting of the double dissolu tion would have led one to suppose that they were dying to get back to their constituents so that the diffe rences that existed between the two great parties could be settled. (Laughter). The Liberals had de nied themselves the benefits and emoluments of office so as to give the electors an opportunity to settle those differences, which at present prevented the country's business from being transacted. It was a patriotic action on their part, and the...

Prahran Drainage Works. The Diverting Drain: Malvern's Share of Cost. The Finance Committee of the Prahran Council brought up a recom mendation on Monday evening that the city surveyor beauthorised to pro ceed with the preparation of the plans and estimates for the construction of the diverting drain along Canterblury and Grange-roads. Cr. Nicolson nioved, and Cr. Morris seconded, the adoption of:the recom mliendation. Cr. Naylor opposed. T:l e drain, he said, was purely- for the coinvenience: of Malvern flood iwaters. The iMinister should be asked the amount of moiety towards the cost. wiiclh the M6aivern Council should- pay. The" council should stay its hand for a while. The cause of flooding under present con ditions was that the inlet to the main drain was not large enough, as it became choked with paper, straw, and such-like rubbish. Cr.

PRAHRAN V. NORTH MELBOURNE.

Nevertheless, they put up a good game, although the play was not of a very: higli standard. The game was pretty even all through, except for a few minutes at the start of the third quarter, when North Melbourne scored two goals in quick succession.
