As he spoke, he was bringing for ward two chairs for them; then tak ing another for himself, he stepped a few paces backward and sat down, m" tioning them to do the same. "There are," he began, almost air. i'y, ignorlng the sternly hostile looks with which the two men stood regard. ing him, "one or two matters between tus which may reasonably be discussed here on this the last opportunity we may expect to have of speech to gether," He paused, and there was a dead silence as the two waited for him to continue.

Cr McDonald said the whole British empire mourned the loss of an officer and a gentleman, -He moved that the council express its deep sympathy with the relatives of the deceased soldiet-a man who has served his country well. Cr Jenkins, in seconding, said the words of warning uttered by the late Lord Roberts, who strongly advo cated universal training in Great Britain and said the time would come when the need for trained men would be felt, had come too true. Cr Bell (mayor) and Cr I-larris supported, the last regretting that the deceased soldier had not lived to see the hoped-for victory of the allied forces. The motion was agreed to.

Lemmon were returned unopposed for Flemington and Williamstown respectively, two electorates which include portions of politically ampu tated Footscray.

SUNDAY ADDRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 21 November 1914
SUINDAY ADDRESS. Mr Kenncy, in his Sunday night address, said our life is a mirage; a vapour; a breath or at most a lnmbcr of breaths, say about seven or eight thousand million breaths, and then where are \ve gone. The many scenes we have been inl the history we have helped to make ; the works we have done; the words we have spoken have passed away and soon will be forgotten as though we had never been. Our very thoughts in Ihe words of scripture have perished; our bodies have crumbled to dust and dissipated into their constituent gases and so will perish most of those who have gone to the war on every side, ;anlld from every side, and those even who escape death at the war, will be inexorably followed up by their last enemy death and the mirage of their life will be passed. But God in His mercy has provided that life eternal may he grasped and the mirage may become a reality. lie has provided special instructions for individuals and though many thousands are astray on the matter it...
BREAD UNDERWEIGHT [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 21 November 1914
IBREAD UNDERWEfilGHT At Thursday's court Joseph Cordy was charged with having for sale on October 20th, bread that was under weight. Mr Secomb conducted the prosecution and Mr Brocket appeared for defendant, who pleaded guilty. Mervyn C. Whithcead, city inspector, stated that on October 20th he stopped one of defendanlt's carts in Central Avenue, and on weighing 18 loaves found them 32 ozs short. The bread appeared to have been baked within twenty four hours. To Mr Brocket--I weighed defend ant's bread about once a fortnight and have found it over weight in some cases but never under until this time. Mr Goldsmith, P.M. lie has a good ricord previously and for this, his first affence, will only he lined lid per oz, or 16t- with 23/ti costs. At the same court George Stewart was similarly charged tor' an offence on the same iday. In this case 21 loaves taken, from a cart in Newell street weighed 35 ozs short.

GARDEN NOTES. MANURES AND HOW TO USE THEM. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 21 November 1914
GARiDEN NOTES. By DIIR ED. GRAY. MANURES AND HO\V TO USE THEM. The next thing neceesary to hav ing a knowledge of the soil, and the best way of working it, is to under stand something of the nature of the manures commonly used, why they are used, and what would be most suitable to use in combination with our soil, as the manure which is beneficial in one class of soil may be quite the reverse in others. Then again, plants, like ourselves, differ very much in their likes and dislikes as regards their food, and what would stimulate the growth of one plant may act as a poison to another. To apply large quantities of manure fresh from stable, without discrimin ating as to whether the plants re quire it or not, is a wrong system. It may benefit certain coarse grow ing plants, such as cabbages or rhub arb, but it is almost certain to cause the death of a lot of plants, such as ericas, boronias, carnations and ver benas, while it causes others to grow ranl' and useless wood and ensures a p...
CHARGE OF PERJURY. A REMARKABLE PROSECUTION. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 21 November 1914
CHARGE OF PERJURY. A t1l:lARKAIEIII PROSECUT'ION, On October 24.th Wiml. Collins, a cab proprietor, obtained an order against William l-lollingsworth, an elderly man, residing' at Blallarat road, l'ootscray, and well known locally. At Thursday's court Hollingsworth took the offensive, charging Collins with making a false statement in saying he was indebted in the sum of 181 whenhs was not. On being asked to take the bible in his right hand to be sworn HIollings worth cried "No! I'll take no bible, I'm a free thinker I am," and was sworn without. "My name," he said, "is William Slattery Webster, and I want the summons amended to that. It is my right name. I have been going under the name of I-Iollingsworth." Mr Goldsmith, P.M. Well, this case can continue under it. Hollingsworth-I wish this case ad journed till the 17th December, to call Mr Warde, M.L.A., Mr Biggs, Mr Fraser and two others, as witnesses. Mr Collins-I strongly object to an adjournment. I have lost a day through being ...
HANDBILL NUISANCE DEPUTATION OF ONE AND AN INTERLUDE. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 21 November 1914
HANDBILL NUISANCE - --- ON--E DEPUTATION OF ONE AND AN INTERLUDE. If there is much antipathy on the part of local business folk to the pro. posed by-law prohibiting the distri bution of handbills in the thorough. fares of the municipality it has not been displayed to any appreciable extent. At two meetings of the council there were opportunities for objectors to lift up their voices in protest but, with the exception of Mr J. A. Pippey none attended. Therefore Mr Pippey was received as a deputation of one at Monday night's meeting. Mr Pippey said that as an occasi onal distributor of handbills he had read the proposed by-law and found it harsh and unnecessary, calculated to injure those business people who favored handbills as an effective method of advertising. And it was particularly harsh at this particular juncture when shopkeepers required assistance and encouragement rather than unnecessary restrictions. At this exceptional time, too, the pur chasing public desired all the kno...

A large sum of money is needed to provide Footscray with a park for the people, and ranking with some of the line places to be found in most suburbs and in many of the country districts. The site possessed by the ;municipality is equal, to any park site in Victoria, but while favored by nature as regards posi tion and contour, it requires a lot of work to fashion it into the attractive area that it should be. For this reason the Footscray Park Beautification Com mittee recently considered the advis ability of arranging a monster picnic and carnival to be held at the park on A.N.A., day, 1st February next. A committee raising funds for the relief of Belgian refugees, who have suffered much in bravely defending their neut rality and who have earned the admira tion of the world, also proposed to hold a carnival and to avoid clashing it was decided at a meeting held at the Town Iall on Wedn...

By the display of goods manufactured in Australia shopkeepers of Melbourne and suburbs have done good work dur ing the last week or two in calling at tention to the superior class of manu factures that Australians are capable of. There was, as usual, competitions for the best dressed windows in various departments of trade ; it is satisfactory to find Footscray firms again in the lihst of prize winners. In a previous year Messrs J. H. Hooper and Co. practi cally swept the board in every display connected with the drapery business, and this year that noted firm again comes first on the list, with the display in the Footacray emporium of tweeds worsted and serges.

ASPHALT MIXERS. AN ANOMALY DISCOVERED. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 21 November 1914
AN ANOMALY DISCOVERED. At Monday night's meeting of the local council Cr Harris said it had come under his notice that men employed by the council in the mixing of asphalt received only 8/6 per day ; which was the wage paid to municipal 'laborers. Asphalt. mixing was dangerous work and dirty. There was always danger of being burnt and the ruination of clothing was a very large item. He thought the men were entitled to a little more than the minimum wage. Cr Shillabeoer-What does the sched uleo say ' Mr Neylan, C.E.-AII our nmen are paid according to the schedule. Cr Shillabeer said the schedule refer red to had been drawn up at a confer once of representatives of municipal employes and of metropolitan councils. He thought they should stick to that religiously, because once it was broken away from, others might break away in a different direction. Cr McDonald thought Cr Harris was to he commended for bringing the matter before the council. He thought too the surveyor should look into...

BOWLING NOTES. FOOTSCRAY VANQUISHES UNDEFEATED TEAM. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 21 November 1914
1BOWLING NOTES. FIOOT'SCHIAY VANtIJlISHES UN DEFEATED TEAM. Saturday last was a glorious day for Footscray howlers, the glory being due as a result of the defeat of the City (West Melbourne) team, which till then had carried all before them. That tile victory was as well earned as it was unexpected no one canl deny, and whether it serves as a complete answer to criticism in this column last week or was the result of greater effort and more seriousness as a consequence of the said kindly criticism is a point that may be argued but will never he settled. It shows, however, that if every man puts his best into the game the Footscray club would not be 'continually lagging at the tail end of its section ; that with more attention to practice by some, at least. of the players, it would be possible for the locals to do what is expected of them-bring some honors to Pootscray. The match was an interesting one to watch. Taking the teams as a whole the scores wereo close in the earlier stages....
