MACING THE RATTLER. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 25 July 1914
`MACING THE RATTLER. :At ,Blackpool, a gentleman getting into a third-class railway carriage .found the only other occupant was a travelling minstrel with a large harp in a green baize covering. Presently the station where the tickets were taken was reached, and as the train journeyed on, the gentle man was startled by hearing a sort of. muffled whisper issuing apparently from the harp. Seeing him looking rather curiously at it, the man in charge of it remarked, 'I'fm sure you are a gentleman who suwon't .cause trouble.

The Same Old Subject. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 25 July 1914
The Same Old Subject. People are watching with interest as to whether the Prahran Town Hall site question is to be deinitely decided at the local Council meeting next Monday evening. At all events, a step towards finality is hoped for. Cr Nicolson is to move a resolution that an architect be engaged to draw up plans and specifications for the restoration of the City Hall and the re-building of offces, &c., in accor dance with a draft scheme previously submitted. The Town Hall site question was a prominent feature of the speechifying- that took place at the South Yarra Club's " smoke." Just as the City Hall itself went to destruction in smoke, so the question of re-building it was disoussed amidst clouds of smoke. If that were not a co-incidence, perhaps it was, at all events, appropriate. But for the whole subject to end in smoke would be a refleotion on those whom it more immediately concerns. The present condition of the Prahran Municipal Buildings tends to show that somet...

Return Municipal Ball. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 25 July 1914
Return Municipal Ball. Very successful was the return ball to the Mayor of St. Kilda and Mrs. E. O'Donnell, which was held on Tuesday evening, there being a large number of guests, and in every way the function was a fitting compliment to the Mayor and Mayoress. The decorations were of a unique charac ter, and by their beauty were unani mously admired. In the Town Hall ale a number of windows, and each of these were set out as Moorish al coves. They were delightfully pretty, and as the eye gazed upon them, they represented so many exquisite rural or garden scenes in miniature. Tiny electric lights added to their charm. So well were they arranged that they gave the visitor, as he or she first entered, the impression that oil paint ings had been utilised in this branch of the decorative work. It was a neat deception, but at once artistic and charming. Perched in mid air in the centre of the hall were four images of proud peacocks, with their tails spread to the different points of the...

Hobart Tramways. RECENT EXTENSIONS. :June 29. was a day of jubilation in West Hobart, for, according to the "Mlercury"-after years of uphill work -uphill in more senses than one-the people of West Hobart have seen their wish an accomplished fact. Their districti was connected with the city by tramway. The tram cars were do corated..: The new service was de clared open by the Mayoress, who cut thlie' ribbon at the Corner of Liverpool and Harrington-streets. At somine peechifying subsequently, Alderman Amott said that the city council realised that public utilities should be owned by the people. As a result of a plebiscite, an overwhelm ing majority had declared in favor of the purchase of the tramways. The cost was £215,000. It seemed a large sunu, but they had thle satisfaction of knowing that the trains were a success. North H-lobart would be the next suburb to have an extension. It was estimated that at the end of the year the profits on the trams over working expenses would be £1...
Municipal. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 25 July 1914
Municipal. In St. Kilda things are being licked into shape in view of the approaching elections. Progress associations have met, and gravely considered the ques tion of "putting up" candidates. Nomi nations were called for, the methods of the Labor party in this respect being taken as a guide.. However, the Elwood Association has made its se lection for the South Ward, and the names are Crs.I Hewison and Scul thorpe and Mr. Burnett Gray. The latter is secretary of the association, and judging by the amount of corres pondence lie has been in the habit of dealing in,: no man ill the com munity should be better posted in the necessities of the -South. Ward than Mr. Gray.: It is understood that ex Cr. Pittard is also going to nominate, and his friends feel that he would give the three association candidates a good run for their money Central Ward has selected Cr. Love and Miessrs.- T. G. Allen and Herbert Maroney. Mr. Allen is an ex-council lor, and has a good insight into what constitu...

Prahran was ,-captained- by J. M\oronejy, aBd they played Farmer and Greenhill in place of Caine, Indisposed, and Daniells: Prahran had first use of;.what slight breeze there .was in the first quarter, but, it tcounted for little or nothing. The game was very evenly contested r-ght up to: half-time, the only differ enice beingt that the v isitors' kicking was rather better than the locals. In the. third cuarter Brunswick iua proved wonderfully, and their splendid cystein qui?i nonplussed their oppo .lents. Their goal kicking, neverthe less, Wais altogether astray, and in the end it lost them the match. Prahran pre-ailced- ini the ruck, and their de fence i?asl exceptionally strong. - At thie final change, Brunswick led by a point. Teli last quarltor was full of stirring f:ootball, both sides ...
