BETHEL SUNDAY SCHOOL. Prize Distribution and Presentations. Many teachers and scholars con inected with the Bethel Sunday School in earlier days were in the asseipb lage of adults and pupils in the Tem perance Hall on February 24, when a distribution of prizes was perform ed, and a social held to mark the dis lianding of the school after over a half-century of usefulness in the community.

OUR AREA OFFICER. Capt. Derrick Enlists and Joins Camp. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 3 April 1915
OUR AREA OFFICER. -0------ Capt. Derrick Enlists and Joins Camp. Since the inception of the compul sory training system, Captain C. R. Derrick has held command of the military cadets in Port Melbourne, and in stating that he has been popu lar with the trainees and brought them to a state of proficiency which .has generally been approved of. and admired, we simply echo the senti ment of every interested resident. The call for services at the front could no longer be withstood by the genial captain, and although he is parting from a work full of interest and ambition to him, the call of his comrades in the firing line has had its sway, and he has now joined the camp at Broadmeadows, preparatory to training the recruits for the third Expeditionary Force, with which he will serve in the rank of Major, his correct military standing. Captain Derrick joined the military forces- in 1899, served five years in the ranks, gaining every rank of non commissioned .office, as lance-cor poral, corp...

The second lot are over here . . . . are with them. We do not know what they are going to do with us. Some say that we are going to France; and others assert that we are going to England. The Infantry went down to Ismailia to fight the Turks, but the enemy was gone when our men reached there. T's Battalion went down. They said that they were on leave all the time they were there. They tell me that they found in the tienches dead bodies of men, who, because they would not fight, had had their hands tied behind their back and had been shot by German officers. The In dian soldiers captured about 3,000 prisoners, who were all brought into Cairo. We have picture shows every night out here, and boxing every Wednesday and Saturday even...
LOCAL RELIEF EFFORTS. Cr. Gill's Complaint. Aloofness Alleged. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 3 April 1915
LOCAL RELIEF EFFORTS. Cr. Gill's Complaint. Aloofness Alleged. At the meeting of the Port iTel bourne Town Council on Tuesday night, Cr. Gill complained that local people who could have, and should have assisted the effort for Belgian relief on the previous Friday (Flag Day) were conspicuous by their ab sence. On that day only two or three Port Melbourne ladies took part in the effort, and they had-to get assist ance from outsiders from places as far away as North Melbourne. If the ladies of this district had done their duty instead of raising £29 Port Melbourne would have raised £129. It seemed to hind that a section of the community was determined to taboo anything patriotic or charitable, moved by a Labor mayor. This standing aloof, which was done on purposle, was contemptible. He was convinced the action complained of was a retaliation on the ratepayers for electing Labor councillors. Local large firms were subscribing to city funds rather than contribute to any Port Melbourne f...

HIN FUNG'S DEATH. Cause of Fatal Injuries Unknown. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 3 April 1915
HIiN FUNG'S DEATH. Cause of Fatal Injuries Unknown. C When the Coroner at- the City Morgue recently took up the- en ' iry into the death of Hin Fung, ,~g'e50 years, a Chinese, whose body 7yas found under a sheet of tin near Fisherman's Bend, in circumstances already reported in "The Standard," ,Detective-sergeant A. S. Burvett told Dr. Cole that. Hin Fung was one of the only Chinese in Victoria having no clan in Australia, and according ly he was regarded as an outcast by the other Chinese. No interest was shown by Hin Fung's compatriots in the effort to find the cause of his' death. Witness saw the Navarino lying at the South wharf on the day after Hin Fung's death. There was a large quantity of heavy timber about the steamer, and it was pos sible that Hin Fung was among it, and it might have been possible that a piece fell on him, or might have been pushed over on to him. He must have been taken to where he was found, and was not injured there. He might have been murdered, he migh...

LABOR LEAGUE. South Australian Election. The victory of the Labor Party in South Australia was one of the sub jects of an address by Mr. J. Mathews, M.H.R., at the meeting of the Labor League on Tuesday night. Mr. E. Cremer presided at the gath ering of members, among whom were Cr. T. Smith (Mayor), Cr. Page, and Cr. Murphy, of South Melbourne. ~Mr. Mathews said that the outcome of the contest in the neighbouring State on the west was pleasing. There the Labor Party had come, back again into power. In South Austra lia political events were somewhat remarkable. About five and a-half years ago the Labor Party had a majority in the popular House, and a Labor Government was formed. Next the Peake Government replaced the Labor Ministry, and then fol lowed one of the worst cases of "jerrymanderinu' known in the re arrangement of the constituencies to endeavour to ensure the return to power of a Conservative Govern ment at the next appeal to the elec tors. Electorates were disassociated an...
BELGIAN FLAG DAY. Port Melbourne Effort. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 3 April 1915
BELGIAi FLAG DAY. Port Melbourne Effort.] In Port Melbourne on Belgian Flag Day (yesterday week) ladies and girls busily plied the calling of flag vendors. Warehouses, stores, manu factories, and business establish ments, and ships in port were visited. Members of the opposite sex were greeted with the invitation to "wear your colors." Gaily decked in Bel gian ribbons, the flag-sellers could certainly not be twitted with failing themselves in that which they mani festefd at timoes nnilnideralanh nrli ness in inviting all men' and youths whom they encountered to, do. Some young gallants made the most of the transaction by insisting on the selle.r pinning the favors in their coats. During the afternoon a company of little boys wearing bright uniforms, and moving about in military order, added to the spectacular effect of the proceedings. While the fair sex made up the first line of operators in the day's activities, Boy Scouts and other lads formed a second divi sion whose efforts, to...

It was alleged that they stole one pound's worth of meat. They should be charged with larceny. There was no record against any of these men. He would ma...
