Municipal [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 18 July 1914
Municipal. In St. Kilda there is a strong under current of interest being displayed in the coming municipal elections, and as nomination day is now fast ap proaching, the interest, it is expected, will show itself in a manner that will give no cause for doubt. The Elwood and South St. Kilda Progress Associa tion has, it is stated, made a selection of some candidates, but there has been no open official declaration on the point so far. With the introduction of the fourth ward, three new men will, of a certainty, have to make their ap pearance in the council, and as to who they will be, it would be ex ceedingly hard to make a guess at this juncture. Rumor has it that certain citizens, who have been prominent in League matters for some time past, will be candidates. If this be so, and such candidates are successful, the natural outcome should be that El wood and the South should quickly forgo ahead in importance. What ratepayers outside League influence are going to do in regard to the...
A Progressive Business Man. MR. W. TAYLOR. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 18 July 1914
A Progressive Business Man. MR. W. TAYLOR. Among the progressive business men of Prahran, Mr. W. Taylor, of the well-known Co-operative Drapery Stores, of Prahran, South Melbourne and Seddon, holds a very foremost place. Ever since Mr. Taylor, who is the son of a highly respected farmer of Maldon, left a little country State school for a very junior position in a country drapery establishment, he has demonstrated a wonderful spirit of dogged and optimistic perseverance, combined with business acumen far and away above the average, which have carried him through all the vary ing experiences incidental to active business life, and have raised him to a high and influential position. It is a matter of regret that Mr. Taylor has never entered public life, for his quick and intelligent grasp of business pro positions used on the public's behalf would have materially increased his usefulness as a citizen and benefit to the community. From a somewhat small beginning in his present stores at...

Difficulty on a Matte of Nomiuation. Prahran Council had some diffi culty on Monday evening in fixing upon a representative for the Board of Management of the Infectious Diseases Hospital. There was quite a long discussion over the piece of business, and at times it was serious, humorous, oynical and cantankeroust but withal there was a touch of homeliness about the whole thing that made it hard for one to restrain from laughter. It was a wet night without, and a chilly night within. The electria radiators were sending farth as much heat and brightness as they could command. Councillors, as if by unanimous accord, left their accustomed seats, and for the greater part sat round the centre table, as if one of them, more hospitable than the rest, had invited them all to tea. Cr Chambers was nominated as the council's representative on the Hospital board. Then the fun be gan. Cr Chambers rose with wrath and indignation. He said that if the council elected him he would not guarantee that...
