Swan Street Hotelkeeper Agrees to Removal of Horse Trough—Legal Opinion is in Favor of Council. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 20 January 1917
Swan Street Hotelkeeper Agrees to Removal of Horse Trough-Legal Opinion is in Favor of Council. Richmond Council has considered ;he opinion of the solicitors of the Municipal Association on the council's powers to compel the removal of the Lroughs. The opinion was to the ef feet that hotel keepers are not com pelled by law to provide horse troughs outside their licensed premises; that all horse troughs in public streets are in existence without lawful rights, and that the Council may order the removal of horse troughs at any time without any liability for compensa tion. Cr. Bell reported tnat Mr. Dona hoo, who had originally sent in a claim for £30 as compensation, had now agreed to allow the water trough in front of his hotel to be removed, and asked that same be re-erected in Lennox-street, near Swan-street. This will be done. The reason for the removal of the troughs is that they entice drivers to water their horses and frequently block the tram servie.

Bessie Barriscale in Fine Film at Globe.-Forceful Feature on Thurs day Will Tell of Perils of Drink. Louise Glaum has been arousing much interest at the Globe in The Forbidden Adventure, an Arabian romance. Last screenings . will be given this afternoon and evening. Bessie Barriscale, a star of much charm, will make her first appear ance in The Mating on Monday. It is a strong dramatic story, and will be supported by The War of Wealth and a Christie comedy. That the drunken habits of a *father may be passed on to his son and wreck not only his life but that of the woman be loves is the theme of The Power of Evil, a forceful fea ture to be screened on Thursday. It is a Moss production, and Margaret Nichols is seen in the leading role. Acting and mounting are good, and altogether it is a striking picture. It arouseu something of a furore .in Sydney when submitted there. Part 10 of .the Crimson Stain Mystery and System is everything, a comedy, are other attractions.
Wm. S. Hart Makes First Appearance at the Crown—Revival of Olga Petrova in My Madonna Should be Welcome. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 20 January 1917
Wm. S. Hart Makes First Appearance at the Crown-Revival of Olga Pe trova in My Madonna Should be Welcome. The Power of Evil is the star to be subtaitted for the last times at the Crown Theatre this afternoon and evening. It is a production which has aroused.something of a sensation and which should not be missed. Red Feather have produced many striking films, but never one better than IDr. Neighbour. It handles a big question in a graphic manner, and the dramatic situation in which a doctor finds himself affords scope for some 'fine acting. It is in five reels. The Hepworth Co. are the makers of a pleasing three-reeler in The Incor ruptible Crown, a romance of much charm. Win. S. Hart at the Crown is some thing of a novelty, but patrons will doubtless welcome this fine actor when he appears on Thursday. -On the Night Stage is the title of the film and it grips throughout. Episode three of The Crimson Stain Mystery sus tains the interest at a high level. By special request a revival ...

Soldiers' Wife Complimented on Charity Towards Unfortunate Girl—War Council and Lord Mayor's Patriotic League Give Assistance. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 20 January 1917
Soldiers' Wife Complimented on Char ity Towards Unfortunate Girl-War Council and Lord Mayor's Patriotic League Give Assistance. Noble self-sacrifice and spirit are not found only upon the battlefield. The women who stay behind have a full share of those qualities, as has been demonstrated by a case at the Richmond Court. Alison Carr was charged a week ago with having abandoned an infant -she left it on the steps of the Foundling Hospital, Berry-street, and, returning next day to inquire how it was faring, she was arrested. She ex- plained to the bench that the father of her two children was on active service and as soon as his wife had learnt of the state of affairs she had taken the girl and her children in and cared for and supported them. She had felt that both the children were a drag on the woman who had befriended her. Mayor Fear remarked that the girl appeared to be more sinned against than sinning, and the case was ad journed to see what the State War Council or the Defence ...

"Jamming" Wireless HOW A RAIDER WORKS. "S.O.S." SMOTHERED. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 27 January 1917
"Jamming" Wireless HOW A RAIDER WORKS. "S.O.S." SMOTHERED. The cables which described the.. movements of the German raider rov ing the South Atlantic indicate that the Germans were playing the wire less game of "jamming" with great success. That prevents a ship's mes sage for assistance being picked up, and at the same time makes it im possible for the Allies' scouts to lo cate the position of the raider. It is probable that the enemy ship is fitted up with an exceptionally powerful outfit, one capable of "jam ming" anything sent out from an or dinary merchant ship. Most traders carry sets of about one and a half kilowatts, while the German, on its present mission, would be fitted with one equal to at least 10 kilowatts. The small apparatus used by the mercan tile marine is quite powerful enough for ordinary work, but when it comes to an argument with 10 kilowatts it is a case of lightweight v. heavyweight. As far as is known, the raider is of about 700 tons, which means that she wo...

BONDI BREEZES. A MELBOURNE TRAM AT THE BEACH HEAD. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 27 January 1917
SBONDI BREEZES. A MELBOURNE TRAM AT THE BEACH HEAD. You pronounce it Bon-di, please, with the emphasis on the second syl lable. So, now, if when you come to Sydney, you are immediately picked out as a "M elbun bloke" simply be cause you will persist in talking of their ocean beaches as Bond-e or Coo-gee-the way the latter is pro nounced by the real-dyed-in-the wool harborsider sounds more like asking someone for something, and should be enunciated sharply, as 'Could-ye" or "Could-ge," short and sharp, like a donkey's gallop-well, t is your funeral, not mine, and I shall wish you a merry time on your ast journey. It is easy to pronounce Ats name, but it is impossible to do Ats magnificence and beauty simple .ustice, so I certainly shall not at :empt it.

Great Vitagraph Co. Should Score With Sensational Drama at National. — Marguerite Clarke Romantic and Charming Role Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 27 January 1917
Great Vitagraph Co. Should Score With Sensational Drama at the National. - Marguerite Clarke in Romantic and Charming Role on Thursday. Pauline Frederick has a congenial role in The Moment. Before, a Fa mous Players drama based on Israel Zangwill's play, which will be screen ed at the National on Monday, com mencing at the matinee. As- the gipsy girl, Miss Frederick is said to eclipse all her previous fine interpre tations. The story opens in Eng- - land, and is continued in Australia. It was produced in Florida, and the scenic beauties enhance the dramatic qualities. Through the Wall, a pro duction by the recently reorganised and expanded Vitagraph Co., is a fine fulfilment of the promise that the re leases of the organisation would 'be 'front-rankers. It is billed as a super feature, mystery drama, and lives up to description. The realistic destruc tion of a liner by a torpedo is the principal thrill in six reels of excite ment. There is a strong supporting: bill. Marguerite Clark...

Meeting the Wants of Women—Mde. Weigel's Paper Patterns Reach Million Mark in Year—Romance of a Richmond Industry. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 27 January 1917
Meeting the Wants of Women-Mde, Weigel's Paper Patterns Reach Million Mark in Year-Romance of I a Richmond Industry. Over a million of Madame Weigel's Paper Patterns were sold last year. Few people have any idea of the re markable growth and extent of the business that has brought a fortune to its founder and provides employ ment for many Richmond residents. It is one of the many interesting ro mances of industry in Australia. Forty years ago Madame Weigel left America and came to Australia. She was employed as a dressmaker and was regarded as a most expert fashioner and cutter. The young woman resolved to turn her skill to better advantage. She opened a small shop in the Eastern-arcade, Melbourne, and began the sale of paper patterns for women's dresses. Very soon the demand exceeded the supply. Madame Weigel rented the shop next door, and the next, and the next. But the paper patterns had caught on so well that a much larger extension was necessary., The site at the corner of Rowe...
