Wandering Horses Burnley. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 3 October 1914
Wandering Horses Burnley. The Burnley and East Richmond Progress Association and its energetic hon secretary (Mr J. li. Gil&n) were again oil th« war path, and gave councillors something to ,talk about on Monday evening last. Some time ago the Association directed attention to the wandering cattle nuisance, and in due course received a reply to the effect that the Council officers were doing their best to minimise the nuisance, and,,pointing out the difficulties there were sometimes in the way of successfully prosecuting the owners. The Association forwarded a letter stating that the Town Clerk's reply was unsatisfactory, and con cluded with the following rather strongly worded paragraph :-.' To have it recorded that in a city of such importance as Richmond that horses are running about absolutely wild and cannot be pounded, is not only ridiculous, but untrue, and shows clearly that the officer re sponsible is clearly neglecting his duty." A brief but rather warm dis cussion...

German Street Names. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 3 October 1914
German Street Names. There are quite a number of streets in Richmond bearing Ger man names - Berlin, Frankfort, and Hamburg streets for example, and the Burnley and East1 Rich mond Progress Association wish to have British names substituted. The request came before the Council on Monday evening, but did not find much support from councillors. . " Cr Strahan said as the Kaiser's name was William, he would sug gest that all persons bearing the name of William be rechristened " Mick," (Laughter). The Ger man people wanted no war, but they were forced into the conflict by the military party that domin ated Germany. Cr Barcelo considered it would be a waste of money to spend it on painting new name plates for these streets, and would cause a deal of inconvenience to residents. If at some future time England was at war with another nation a further, change would be pro posed. The whole thing seemed ridiculous. It was decided to inform the Burnley Progress Association that the Council coul...
