Hannan, the sitting member, has the best of organisation at his back, and no stone is being left un turned so as to ensure that party retaining the seat. Mr Frank Carse, the selected Liberal candidate for Fawkner, will address the electors in the South Yarra Hall, Toorak road, on Monday evening next, at 8 o'clock. A general invitation is extended to electors to be present.
BALACLAVA, [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 25 July 1914
BALACLAiA, In regard to Liberal representation for the electorate of Balaclava, it was unfortunate that so much time was lost in the final selection of a candidate. The two in the field were Mr W. A. Watt (ex-Premier) and Dr Carty Salmon. In a contest of the kind it was very necessary that unanimity should prevai'. One Liberal candidate only was needed. Organisation work had' to be done, and it could not effectively be carried out while uncertainty existed as to who was to be finally selected to re present the Liberal Party. Mr Watt has been very active addressing meetings at different places, and has done much to awaken interest in the Federal campaign in different constituenoies. Mr Watt was present at the South Yarra Club smoke social on Saturday evening. He made a short interesting speech, but otherwise did not deal with matters political.
DECLINE OF THE FRENCH NOVEL. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 25 July 1914
DECLINE OF THE -FRENCH NOVEL. The novel is in a bad way in France; We have heard the cry be fore, but this season it is uttered with more than usual anguish. Nei ther booksellers, nor- publishers are making any. money, and authors are gradually drifting tovards : the As sistancc Publique. One reason why the novel is going out of" fashioni, is the failure of the novelist; to marchi-with humanity; he has failed to take note of science -'-tot register the amazing develop ments- that have changed existence durling the last five years. The fact that Gabriele d'Annunzio has taken thie air as the "milieu" for .his latest -hlook is one -of: the : causes of his great success in.; France. He has cauight ?the poetry and the vast pos sibilities of the new progression. So, in 'the future, the novelist, if he would: keep any hold on his genera tion; niust glimpse with keener eye the w?onders of the laboratory and the conceptions of the engineer.

Melbourne Cable Tramways. THEIR FUTURE CONTROL. ST. KILDA COUNCIL DISCUSSION. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 25 July 1914
Melbourne Cable Tramways. THEIR FUTURE CONTROL, ST. KILDA COUNCIL DIS CUSSION. At a late hour on Monday night the St. Kilda Council concluded a discussion on the question of the future control of the Melbourne tram ways. Cr Hughes, the council's represen tative on the Melbourne Tramway Trust, said the condition of the roadway had for some time past been closely watched. Pending the passing of any legislation to take over the control of the tramways, there was no reason why the Trust should not take some preliminary steps for carrying on the trams when the company's lease was up in 191tý. The Trust, however, had no power to borrow money, and therefore could not carry on the trams when the lease was up. Steps should be taken to give the Trust such power. be carried on for a certain period, and if steps were not taken towards that end before the expiration of the lease the Trust would find itself in the hands of the Tramway Co. The Trust could either be given power to purchase the pres...

WHAT SAVED HINM. Thc~ e village cricket team was doing pretty ,ell, and their crack bats man-the local architect- had yet 0to make the big innings which was 'epectei of him. But in the first over a'risky short run was met with a :confident appeal for "run-out." .,The.village barber was officiating as umipire and he answered the ap peail ith an emphatic "not out." ".Ah !" said the batsman (with a sigh of relief) to the umpire, "that was a close shave." "It was that," agreed the umpire, "and" (in an audible whisper) "if you weren't in the 'abit of 'aving a shampoo afterwards, I should have said "Next gentleman, please.'
