Building on Low-lying Land. MALVERN CALLS A CONFERENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 4 July 1914
Building on Low-lying Land. MALVERN CALLS A CONFERENCE. The Prahran Council, at its meeting on Monday evening, received a com munication from Cr. S. Wilson, Mayor of Malvern, asking that a delegate be sent to a conference to consider the question of buildings being erected on low-lying land. Cr. Embling moved that the chair man of the Health Committee (Cr. Chambers) be appointed as the coun cil's delegate. Cr. Naylor objected to Cr. Chambers going to the conference, as he was. "biassed." Cr Ginn favored the communication merely being "received." Cr. McIlwrick stated that the question of building on low-lying land had been before the Municipal Association for some time. The matter at issue was as to whether buildings should be allowed on land that could not be sub divided or drained. Cr. Nicolson said quite recently the council was forced to register a plan of subdivision when they knew the land was below flood level. Cr. Chambers said he would not attend the conference because Cr.

The ani mal of which the trapper wiH prob -:ably capture most is the lynx. One firm of. traders brought eight thou sand lynx into Edmonton last sum mer, and these formed only a part of the total receipts.

Prahran Court. MILK PROSECUTION. At the Prahran Court on Monday, before Messrs. Mackinnon (chairman), Curwen-Walker, Bangs, and Hislop, J's.P., A. L. Wilson, St. Kilda, was charged with having sold a sample of milk below the standard on May 4. Mr. Herald appeared for the pro secution. Henry Rider, city inspector, stated that he took a sample from defen dant's hand can, and defendant him self gave witness a sample from the bulk can. The analysis showed that while the hand can sample complied with the standard, that from the bulk can was 3 per cent. deficient in fatty solids. This, it was stated, was caused through defendant not mixing the milk in the bulk can before he sold the sample. The Bench imposed a nominal fine of 2/6, with £1/1/- costs. DOGS. W. C. Watts, dog registration officer, summoned several persons for not having their dogs registered, and fines of 5/- were imposed, defendants also being ordered to pay the 5/- registra tion fee and 2/6 costs.

PRAHRAN MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 4 July 1914
PRAHRAN MARKET. By Looker-on. For certain hours on three days of the week-Wednesda) s, Fridays, and Saturdays -the Pra'ran market, Commercial road, is open for busi ness. And business seems to be exceedingly brisk on each day. The wri er took a run through the market between 1 and 2 o'clock on Wednes. day. Crowds of women were in the market. Others were rushing in at the trot. Others were passing out sIlowly and heavily laden with many of the edibles which every househo!d, be it rich or poor, is ever and anon demanding. The recent rains have pushed ahead a plentiful supply of vegetables. Cabbages there are which are fit to set before a King. Big, compact, well developed, and hearts as hard as a rock. For a cabbage to have a hard heart speaks well as to its nature. With a human being its the reverse. Two women walk towards a pile of cabbages, amongst which there were some splendid specimens. They each spoke in terms of eulogy of the vegetables. Said one (with an un doubted foreign ac...
Future of the Motor Bus SCHEME OUTLINED BY MR HOLDSWORTH. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 4 July 1914
Future of the Motor Bus SCHEME OUTLINED BY MR HOLDSWORTH. Under the auspices of the Ma'vern Ratepayers' Defence League, Ex Or A. A. Holdsworth, of Prahran, spoke in the Tivoli Picture Theatre. Glen ferrie road, on the subjeci of street passenger transport, and he outlined a suggestion to secure the conversion of the present cable system in 1916 without undue loss to the ratepayers. The cable system, he said, cost [1,706,794 to construct, an average cost per mile of track of £38,000. The rolling stock was the property of the company. and would have to be purchased by the Trust, and it was doubtful if the machinery and plant would not have to be purchased also. To electrify this system would mean a great expense in laying new track and overhead equipment, and the establishing of power stations. There would be a sum in the hands of the Tramway Trust amounting to about [50.000, which might be used to purchase the present rolling stock. Electrification would take four years to compete, a...

The scores were-Punt road 27, Malvern road 22, Punt roat thus winning by 5 rounders. It was at first thought that Malvern road would win, but Punt road played well in their last innings. Violet LeMaitre, who bowled for Punt road, reflec:ed credit on herself and her team. Punt road's best players were D. Burke, E, Dryden, V LeMaitre. R. Watson, U. Laws. Best players for Nlalvern road-S. Roe, I. Bromley, D. Warby, G. Pelling, D. Usher. Both sidts were pleased with the umpiring done by Mr George. The match played between Arma dale and foorak at Union street park was won by the latter. Both teams were short of players, and Armadale, who played with only six, found it too much for them against a team of eight. Not takming this into account, Toorak played a good game. The final scores were 40 to 3o. Miss Carnaby, who umpired, again showed ...

Firewood Act Prosecutions. SOLICITOR'S COSTS. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 4 July 1914
Firewood Act Prosecu tions. SOLICITOR'S COSTS. Speaking at the Prahran City Council meeting on Monday evening Cr Morris referred to what he termed a great injustice under the Firewood Act, when a large amount of costs were given against persons who were prosecuted. He had heard it said that the magistrates could not help this. When a solici tor knew that defendants would all plead guilty he (Cr Morris) did not know why heavy costs should be given against them. He understood that the council received the fines in such oases and the solicitor the costs. It would be a fine thing for the city solicitor if he had cases of the kind evey week. It was a great injustice to the ratepayers, and he hope d that his remarks would be taken notice of Cr G. N. Heyward, who is a Justice of the Peace, said Cr Morris's remarks were very uncalled. Coun cillors who were J P.'s did not adju dicate in cases where the counoil was interested: Or Morris said he never implicated any councillor. They said in co...
