The Bates Benefit. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 25 July 1914

The Bates Benefit. Now that the Bates benefit has been successfully carried through, it would not be out of place to say a word of recognition of the services rendered by the chairman, Mr Zoe Solomon. Many weeks elapsed from the time the benefit was first initiated until the time of the pre- sentation of the final balance sheet, and during that period Mr Solomon proved himself, as he has done on   many like occasions previously, a most zealous and painstaking pre- siding officer. He possesses all the requisite knowledge, the tact, the vim, that goes towards constituting the ideal chairman, and, more im- portant still, he has the confidence of those over whom he presides. Mr J. T. Garth, ticket secretary, amongst others, also did good work. All associated with the Bates benefit are to be congratulated on the successful outcome of their efforts.

Prahran Library Lectures. THE PASTORAL PIONEERS OF VICTORIA. The series of lectures arranged in connection with the Prahran Public Library for 1914 was commenced on Wednesday evening last, when Mr Charles R. Long, M.A., of the Edu- cation Department, gave a most interesting and instructive lecture on "The Pastoral Pioneers of Victoria."   Especial interest was attached to the lecturer's remarks on the Hentys of Portland, the expeditions of Major Mitchell, Hume and Hovell, and other well known explorers who were mainly instrumental in causing the vast tracts of pastoral country to become known, thus giving many of the pioneers an opportunity to take up the land. Great stress was laid on the debt we owe to these early settlers, the men who braved the roughness and the many disabilities of which the present generation knows but little. The lecture was illustrated with a number of views, portraits and maps, which added to the interest. There was an excellent attendance of P...

Probert, secretary of the Dandenong-road and District Improve. ment League. "The committee of the above League has instructed me to bring under your notice a practice, viz., that the new lawns on the Prahran side of the Dan denong-road are being used by riders for training their horses, especially on the portion recently top-dressed. Horsemen have been seen about 8 a.m. to deliberately gallop their horses from one end to the other, much to the detriment of the new lawns, and un doing the work of the gardeners. It is felt that power should be given to the gardeners to stop this practice, and, if necessary, the council should prosecute offenders, especially as per sons offending are men of position, and cannot plead that their horses got out of control."
