YACHTING. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 27 March 1915
YACHTING. The following boats started in the club race, held on Saturday last: Valkyrie, 20 rmins.; Beta, 23 'mins.; Rambler, 33 mins.; Latona, 35 mins.; Winsome, 38 mins.; Myra B., 39 mins. The course was the usual one of about nine miles, starting from the lagoon pier. The race proved a very exciting contest between the Val kyrie and the Beta. After a hard race the Valkyrie finished just three minutes ahead of the Beta. This provided a tie between the two boats under ordinary circumstances, but unfortunately the Beta at the start* hit the starthing buoy and vas called back by the judge. For some reason the Beta did not return and is ac cording to rules disqualified; this, in view of the very fine race, is ex tremely bad luck for her crew. To day a race will be held over the same course, starting at 3.15 p.m. The entrants and handicap~ are:-Thera, scr.; Valkyrie, 20 mins.; Beta, 23 mins.; Rambler and Frolic, 38 mins.; Latona, 40 mins.; Winsome and Myra B., 45 mins.

"The building -a large galvanised iron structure was leased by the Neptune Oil Co., and was filled with casks and large cans of valuable oils. Fed by the highly inflammable contents of the building, the fire spread rapidly, and within a few minutes had enveloped a large section of the store. From the burning oils a tremendously large and dense cloud of smoke arose, and was borne by the wind in the direction of the river towards West Melbourne. The outbreak was discovered by an employe of Messrs. J. Kitchen and Sons, whose works were separated only by the width of Quinn street from the oil company's store. The alarm was given, and quickly some of Messrs. Kitchen's men ran out the works' reel, and were directing a stream of water on to the fire when the brigades arrived.

Improvement to Show Windows. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 27 March 1915
Improvement to Show Windows. The show windows of Messrs. Moore and Company's drapery establishment have just been ceiled, backlted and par titrioned with artistically emnbossed metal. The ilmprovement has some very com mendable features, of which two are very obvious. Firstly the lighting is made much better, and itecondly out from the light background the goods taken for dis play from the firm's large stocks of very latest lines show in a pleasing relief their perfections at first glance. This is con spicuously so in the millinery display. in which the distinctive charm of the models on view are evident at once. This last improvement. which in addition to the advantages, already mentioned,makles the windows entirely dust proof, keeps the establishment foremost among the best shops in the town. The work was cap ably executed by Mr. Geo. Brown, builder and contractor, of Esplanade East, Porti: Melbourne.

Page: No. The Chairman: I move that we pro. eed with the next business, as we have no money. As an amendment, Cr.

Tucker opposed the motion. He said that the bathing shelter was ne cessary for the ratepayers. At this stage it was useless to say, "We have not £45." At the last meeting, the purchasing of rails at £89 was coqn templlated. Why then could the Council not find £45 for the erection of a bathing shelter for the conveni ence of th...
