Elwood Motor Fatality. Messrs. Smith and Emmerton, solicitors, wrote to the St. Kilda Conn. cil o,i Monday evening, stating that they had been instructed by the widow of the late Henry Gifford McLeod to communicate with the council with reference to the motor accident resulting in her husband's death, which occurred on June 2, at the intersection of Glenhuntly ans Ormond-roads. The accident, from evidence submitted to them, appeared to be due to the bad state of repair of the road and insufficient lighting. In the circumstances, therefore, Mrs. McLeod intended to claim damages from the council for herself and her children for the loss of her husband. The deceased left a widow and six children, four of whom were under the age of 16 years. Deceased was a letter-sorter at the General Post Office, Melbourne, and resided at Deakin street, Malvern. The council was asked if it would admit liability, and make any offer of compensation. Mrs. McLeod, naturally, did not wish to institute proce...

Site Wanted for Destructor. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 11 July 1914

Site Wanted for Destructor. The municipalities of St. Kilda. Caulfield and Brighton are experi encing difficulty in securing a site for the erection of a destructor for their joint use. A site had been selected in the vicinity of Elwooi sad Elsternwick territory, and all was thjught to be serene, but local people rose up in protest, saying the site was too near the State -school. The Education Department then said the land was required for future purposes of education. And thus all the work of the joint committee for the past six months or more has gone for naught. About two years ago the Health Department issued a request that corporation tips must be abolished within three years. It is lardly likely that St. Ktlda and other muotiipalities will be able to give effect to that order, although they have done their level best to do so. Wherever it is propose i to put adestructor there are bound tj be some objections raised. It was the isme with the Prahran destructor ; this stands in a...
