The Standard SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 9TH, 1907. Prahran Trades Club. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Standard — 9 November 1907
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 9TH, 1907. Prahran Tradaa Club. Ät the annual meeting of the Prahran Trades Clob last week a member brought forward a motion to widen the scope of the club, i.e., by permitting citizens to become members, although they may not be " master " tradesmen, r In a discussion that ensued it ap- pears that those favorable to the proposed change held the opinion that with the advance of the times the master tradesman, as he has been known hitherto, is gradually becoming reduced in number. The meeting referred to was told that it was becoming a case of master tradesmen in a very I big way of business, or, on the other hand, those who conduct their buei 9 ness operations on much more c modest lines ; that the " big" man is overshadowing the "little" man, and I that in consequence the Prahran t Trades Club finds it difficult to im . prove its position from a numerical standpoint. The concensus of opinion against the motion seemed to be comprised in one query 1 What extra indu...

Her Majesty's Theatre. Another huge success hms bean 'scored by the above popular theatre, where " The .Girls of. Gottenberg," by the RoyaltCcmic Opera Com- pany, is áráwng packed booses.

Ramsay Memorial. ' Arrangements have been made to unveil the memorial fountain to the late Dr. J. K. Ramsay, of Prahran, at .2.30 p.m. on Saturday next, 16th inst. The ceremony will be performed by the Mayor, Cr Upton.

Hence the members of friendly societies thought it expedient and proper that steps should be taken to perpetuate the ?ama and memory of one who had so often, freely and voluntarily, acted the good Samaritan. The water fountain is of neat design, and, being plac...
