South Yarra Cab Shelter. OBJECTIONS TO OSBORNE STREET SITE. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 1 August 1914
South Yarra Cab Shelter, OBJECTIONS TO OSBORNE STREET SITE. Mr. W. Hogg wrote to the Prahran Council on Monday evening regarding the proposal to place a cab stand opposite his residence in Osborne. street. He made a further protest against it, saying the shelter was an unsightly structure, and there were other objections. He said he would do his utmost to have it removed. It would be a perpetual eyesore. "I am certain," concluded Mr. Hogg, "that not one of you would tolerate the position I am placed in if such could be avoided, which I consider in the present instance could have been. I trust you will give this your serious consideration, and testify in my favor as far as practicable, especially with regard to the lavatory." Cr. Nicolson moved that the matter be referred to committee to report next Monday night. Cabs had stood on the western, instead of the eastern side of Osborne-street, and the stench was intolerable. Cr. Embling: It would be a wise step not to have a lavatory the...

How Bookmakers are " Had." -+ CITE"l I)O-CI: S WHICH MEAN 31t)N EY. Like the proverbinl policeman's, the bookmaker's life is not a lhappy nce. To keep W\ithin the strict limits of the law himself, and pre vent attempts at, fraud on his. hu siness, is a sIItetit\hat strange cci?n bination, but that is what = hun dreds of "bookies" are. doing iiist. now. From a chat I have had with one of the most p-romninent bookmnakers, it appears there has been within recent months a remarkable increase in attempts at fraud on the part of punters in connection with betting businesses. And how is it done? "In innumerable Ways," renmarked the bookmaker. "I have been the viciim of many attempts, and what has struck me is the ingenuity dis played by some people.

Sponge Fisheries. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 1 August 1914
Sponge Fisheries., --------- Fifty years ago practically all sponges came front the Metliterran .a" Sea, but large " quantities -,are ne, produced in H-londuras, Mexico; the fBahamas, and Florida, and the output from the waters of the Uni ted States is so great that com iaratively few sponges, even of the liner varieties required in surgery sanl chemtical experiments, are im ported. Along the Florida west. coast sponge fishing is one of the oldest industries, havinig ihad its beginning several years before the civil war. From a small industry in which fishing was confined; to' tihe shallow waters about Key west, it gradually . spread north tward along the west coast and out to the better' spolge beds :itl :the dt,.per waters of the Gulf, result-: ing in a demand for more skill allong the sponge lishers and greater: investment inl sponge craft and equi :tent.

Coal and Firewood Act. PRAHRAN COUNCIL DISCUSSION. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 1 August 1914
Coal and Firewood Act. PRAHRAN COUNCIL DIi. CUSSION. Cr Morris presented a petition to the Prahran Council on Monday evening, signed by 60 local coal and firewood merchants, asking that the council's bye.laws under the Coal and Firewood Act, relating to the carrying of seales, compulsory bag. ging, and labelling, be eliminated. Cr Morris, who had fo mally pre sented the petition at the previous council meeting, moved that it be relr red to the legislative committee. He said not m',re tlian one per cent of instances had inspectors found deficient weight, and tbey had made thousands of tests. That spoke well for traders' honesty. The alteras. tior s atked for in the bye.law were neoessary, so that wood: and coal mercharits shouldo not be puiled up for mere: techanical breaches of the Cr Ginn said it was always dange rous to attempt- to tinker with bye laws, rmore especially when those bye-laws were made possibly for the benefit of'the public.: Certain wood merchants in Prahran had bee...

Standard Valuations, At the meeting of the Prahran City Council on Monday evening, a communication was received from the shire of Wycheproof relative to the question of standard valuations and the oharge made by the Land Taxr Commissioner, It was stated that sections 74 76 of the Land Tax Act proviL d that municipalities may adopt the valuations mads un. der that Act for rating purposes, and that the Commissioner may provide a copy of such valuation on Payment of such sum as may be presoribed. Under the existing conditions pro. perty owners are paying for the serv ces of a Commonwealth Land Tax valuer, State Land Tax valuer, Water Commission valuer, munici. pal valuer, and valuers for loan and other purposes. All these are going over the same ground, and valuing the same properties, at the cost of the owners.

The Defence Act. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 1 August 1914
The Defence Act. A senior Cadet named John Brom. ley was brought before the Prahran bench on Thursday, consisting of Messrs Chambers (chairman), Hey. ward, and Captain Russell, j.'sp by Plain Clothes Constable Halpin on a charge of not having completed the statutory number of hours at drill during the past twelve months. A remand was asked for, so that the case could be heard before a police magistrate. The chairman said that as only police magistrates could deal with cases under the Defence Act he failed to see how honorary justices had the power to grant the remand asked for. He would not deal with the case himself. There should be someone specially authorised to grant remands. Captain Russell J.P., however, took the responsibi. lity of adjudicating in the matter, and remanded Bromley to appear before a police magistrate at the Prabran Court on August 13. De. fendant was allowed bail in a sum of £5, and his mother signed a bond for a like amount.

COINERS. +- HOW THEY PURSUE THEIR CALLING. Coiners may be said to have pur. sued their nefarious practices. frpn: earliest times, but it is of complara tively recent years that they have become artists at the. game, bothl from the scientific point of ?.iew and that of the. expert nuniismatist-. At an earlier period the method - of man ufacturing :base coin swas as simple as the nimthod of detection;: a- pail of scissors, a sheet ?of - brass, and some silver .or gold in a melted con dition constituted -.the, entire outfit.

A Birthday Surprise. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 1 August 1914
A Birthday Surprise. Mr Geo. H. Barkla, seoretary of the Princess May Women's Tent, I,O.O.R., received a pleasant sur prise on the evening of his birthday (Saturday last). Mrs Barkla, it is understood, was " in the know," and the diplomatic manner in which she refused an invitation of her "' worser half" to '"come out for the usual evening stroll" reflected great credit on her patience and perseverance in a truly difficult situation. How ever, in due course a party of about thirty or more arrived at Mr Barkla's residence, Upton road. Mr Barkla at first thought that the war had obligingly been brought to his very door, but he soon found that the visitors were all friends who had come to do him honor on his birth day. The visitors had brought with them a well stocked and well selected commissariat, and very soon things went ahead pleasantly. Music, sing ing, and elocutionary items were given, and indoor pastimes indulged in. A further surprise was sprung upon Mr Barkla, when Mr E. Mar...

St. Kilda Yacht Club Ball. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 1 August 1914
St. Kilda Yacht Club Ball. The annual ball of the St. Kilda Yacht Club was held in the local Town Hall on Thursday evening, and was a most enjoyable suooess, quite in keeping with the reputation which the club has held regarding similar functions it has had in the past. Everything was carried out on a scale near to perfection as possible, and patrons were deeply appreciative of the arrangements that had been made for their comfort. As might be expected, the decorations were decidedly nautical, life buoys, flags, anchors, ropes, and all descriptions of yachting tackle being in evidence. The details of the ball had been carefully "charted" by committees of lalies and gentlemen. A large amount of work was involved, but with the assistance of Mr J. J. Butler, as secretary, everything was soon set sailing before the wind. The members of the committees were Ladies, Mesdames Dale, Richmond, Weedon, and Miss Mary Barry; gentlemen, Messrs Cobb, Newton, Lewis, Kebby, Harris, Moore, Cook and J...

The South Yarra Cab Shelter. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 1 August 1914
The South Yarra Cab Shelter. In regard to the South Yarra cab shelter, formerly of Yarra street, and now proposed to be established in Osborne street, we doubt not but that the council will be careful that everything will be done to obviate annoyance or nuisance. No one would desire to have a cab rank too close to his private residence. The "1cabbies' themselves are undoubt edly the best of fellows, but their business compels them to keep late hours, and residents don't like to be disturbed in their sleep by the noise of the cabs and the horses. There are other objections besides these. When it is too close, a cab rank gives a private residence something of a public appearance. The council should give the subject full considera tion before coming to a final decision.
Cr Ginn and the Dandenong Road League. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 1 August 1914
Cr Ginn and the Dandenong Road League. Some surprise was expressed at Monday evening's mee:ing of the Prahran Council owing to the receipt of a letter from the Dandenong Road and District Improvement League to the effect that some people were in the habit of galloping horses along the newly made lawns in Dandenong road. There is no reason in the world why any doubt should be cast on the infotmation imparted to the Council by the League, and it is the duty of the Council to take the earliest opportunity of putting a stop to the dangerous and destructive practise. The fact should be im pressed upon all and sundry that no one is establishing another racecourse or train ing track in Dandenong road ! The lawns are being laid down for beauti fication purposes, for the use of man. kind ; not for the hoofs of galloping horses; aye, not even for the wheels of the irrepressible motor car. Cr Ginn paid an appropriate compli ment to those gentlemen who hold sway " up Dandenong road" by referrin...
