CORRESPONDENCE. Dispensary Committee's Attitude. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 6 March 1915
CORRESPONDENCE. Dispensary Committee's Attitude. To the Editor. Sir,-Will you grant me space in your columns to ask the Trustees or Committee of the P.M.F.S.: Dispen sary why thile farce of inviting prices for thile painting of dispenser's cot tage if they had already fixed their mind on thile man? By the way it's the saume mnian every time. Why waste men's time measuring work if there is no intention of giving it, as is usual,. to the Rowest tenderer. There were two piices below Mr. Priestley, £13/18/ and £12/5/, and considering there is a. lot of work needed at the dispensary, with small means to do it with, why such un usual generosity? Most of the paint ers in Port Melbourne pay towards the upkeep of the building as mem bers of societies, then why should Mr Priestley alwdys get the work. In fact is it "playing the game." I have no axe to grind in this instance, because I was not the. lowest ten derer. but it is with the concurrence of the other master painters I write these line...
"PEACE ON EARTH." "Give and Take" Policy Recommended. "Linen Remains Unwashed." [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 6 March 1915
"PEACE ON EARTH." "Give and Take" Policy Recom mended. "Linen Remains Unwashed." Monday promised to be a '.big" day for numerous residents in Church Street. The locality plan Nvas slightly changed, for instead of the bluestone pitchers of the narrow thnroughfare in which wordy bat ties had been fought with vigor and resource, the police court was to be the scene of new operations. Almost all Church Street was there. Whis perers gave it out as a day of "dirty linen," and neighbors wanted to be at the washing. It's an old saying that there's many a slip 'twixt cup and lip, and although all parties-summons and cross-summonses in galore-evinced the keenest curiosity and filled the available space in the Court, all were doomed to disappointment. The first charge was called on about 12.30. A substantial though elderly woman entered the box as complainant. "Good gracious," re marked the astounded police magis trate, "how old are you?" "Over 70," was the answer. "For good ness sake let ther...
