Each forwarded a sheaf of testimonials and a'fter two lots had been read, one showing the applicant to be very ellicient as a grocer, Cr Drew suggested that the whole of the applica tions be referred to the surveyor to examine and select six or eight of the best to recommnend to the council.

Cr Johnson-This council wrote to the Progress Association re this matter some time ago. Did we get an answer ? 'Tlown Clerk-No; no answer. Mr Armitage explained that the party who had the matter in hand had left the district and he himself had been away which accounted for the remissness.

LOCOMOTIVE ENGINEE ARS. SMOKE CONCERT AT FOOTS CRAY. Members of the Institute of Vic torian Railway Locomotive Engine. ers reside in many suburbs and to give all a turn the annual re-union smoke concert is held each year in a different district. This year the choice fell upon Footscray and there was a large muster at the Federal lodge-room last Saturday evening when the function eventuated. And there was considerable enjoyment too. Those present let themselves go to some purpose. In the chorus songs they let themselves go with great acclaim and the speeches, which were few and to the point, appeared to strike a note that met with the appreciation of the festive gathering. The chair was occupied by Mr W. F. Strong, president, and after a number of musical items had been rendered Mr M. Douglas made the presentation of handsomely designed certificates to Messrs Jas. Elliott, past general secretary; H. Wignall, past president D. Section (Newport) and J. (" Mick ") Scott, past presi dent...

BUILDING REGULATI ONS. BUILDER ASKS FOR UNI FORMITY. Mr T. Brooks wrote to the Foots. cray Council on Monday regarding the building regulations. He wished, he said, to protest against the man ner in which they were administered. He had had an interview with the engineer to find out if all the clauses were to be carried out, and was in formed that until the council in structed otherwise he intended hav ing the regulations carried out. I was, continued Mr Brooks, getting ready to mortise and tenon, when a contractor told me the council was going to wink the other eye at the mortising business. I rang up the town hall, and the town clerk said the regulations had to be adhered to. I strongly object to being singled out to mortise and tenon while other contractors are allowed to check. This places me at a great disadvant age. The engineer could have noti fled me. I understand that it is left with the engineer to pass checking if it is done in a satisfactory manner. Checking would not sui...

A FILTHY SUBWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 28 November 1914
A FILTHY SUBWAY. The Council's attention was drawn to the state of the Napier street sub way which has an accumulation of garbage sufficient to fill a dray, and their attention having been drawn to it they decided to write to the Railway department so that the annual cleansing might be carried out. As the garbage comes from the council's street they should cer tainly attend to the work. How ever it may be considered more economical to write a letter and then remark philosophically "That's done with." Lots of work appears to be carried out in Footscray on this plan.

CITIZENS' PICNIC CARNIVAL. PROSPECTS OF GREAT SUCCESS. Everything points to the citizens' picnic carnival to be held at Foots. cray Park on A.N.A. day (February 1st) being a conspicuous success. Approval of the proposal to introduce a picnic day for citizens of Footscray, together with a most attractive round of sports ind amusements has been practically unanimous, and offers of assistance by capable workers are coming in with encouraging alacrity. Already there are indications that a feature of the day will be the monster fancy dress and poster procession. Local business men and city merch ants realise in this an opportunity for a splendid advertisement and are already making arrangements for preparing striking exhibits, and local lodges, sporting institutions, manufac turers and others will co operate to make the display equal to anything seen in this district, which, when the jubilee procession is remembered, is an ambitious claim. Mr A. Hart, who had a great deal to do with the ...
