PROPOSED MEASLES WVA RD. IIEAITI[ OFFICER'S REPORT. Amongst tlhe communic:ations receiv ed by the council on hlonday evening was a report. from D)r. Webb, health oflicer, regardling the proplosed measles ward, in the following terms: "In considering the question of hos pitail aiccomnlnlodation for cases of measles it should be made clear at the outset that little in the way of preventing or limiting the spread of tihe disease is to ibe holped for as aI result of the hospital treatment of these cases. This is due chiefly to the fact that the disease is very infectious in its early stages, he fore the characteristic sylnmptomls have developed, iand partly also to the popu laI' impression tlihat the malady is so harmless as to be unworthy of attention. Measlces, nevertheless, possess a very alppreciable death-rate. For example: in Victoria, during 1911,, no fewer than 72 ldeatths were ascribed to this cause. The moire severe and complicated types of the disease iare most frequently fou...

CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 7 November 1914
CRICKET. Notes by "COVERs POINY.' Footscray Club Eleven will visit Sunbury this afternoon. All members wishing to make the ttip are asked to calchl 52.25 train at Footscray (week end tickets,) YARRAVILLE v MIDfDLE PARIK. The meeting of thle Yarraville and Middle Park teams was looked forward to as likely to provide a fair mneasure of the strength of either team and it was distinctly dis appointing therefore that the opening last Saturday should have been marred by rain. It was also decidedly unfortunate that after losing the toss Yarraville had to openl on a sodden wicket The result was that Ford, a left-handed bowler, found a spot which made hIis deliveries almost unplayable, and Yarravillo saw five good batsmen dismissed for the poor score of .16. Dick Norrig, shaped fairly confidently and in compiling s5, had the honor of being the only man to reach double figures. Ford secured tihe five wickets for 33 runs and registered a meritorious bowling performance. After an hour or so's p...

TRAMWAY CONTROL. GOVERNMENTAL OR MUNICIPAL. COUNCIL DISCUSS POSITION [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 14 November 1914
TRAM WA Y CONTROL. GOVERNMENTAL OR MUNI CIPAL. COUNCIL DISCUSS POSITION When the Melbourne Tramway and Omnibus Company was granted the valuable privilege of constructing tramways through the metropolis and some suburbs~it was provided that its lease should expire in 19i6 and that lines, cars, engine sheds, etc., necessary for the continued working of the service should become the pro perty of the municipalities concerned. For this reason the councils whose districts have been much advantaged by the tramway system have also had the satisfaction of looking for ward to the time when they would become possessors of a very valuable and revenue-producing asset. But as the time draws near for the tram way company to abdicate the public have come to recognise that others have claims besides those municipali ties through which the trams run. They argue that the suburbs that, like Footscray, have not been pro vided with tramway conveniences provide a good deal of the revenue earned by the tra...
