His Worthless Word. Before Mr. Hester, J.P., al the Port Melbourne Court on Wednesday morning, Robert Douglas, the blind street musician, was again charged with being drunk and disorderly. Th6 defendant, who was arrested at 12.30 a.m. by Constable Bell-Cab.ers, pleaded guilty. Douglas was appre hended at the corne, of Liardet and Bay streets. Scrgeant Sims said: "This man was before the Court as recently as Saturday last, when he was charged with being drunk and disorderly. He promised Mr. Wat son, J.P., if given a chance, not to touch liquor again, adding, 'So help me God!' In consequence of that promise, Douglas was discharged. Your Worship can understand that his word is of little worth." Con tinuing, the Sergeant stated that prior to Saturday last the defendant had been- thrice fined for drunkenness. "Put me where I cannot get drink," pleaded the delinquent plaintively. Mr. Hester: "The hardest thing in your case, Douglas, is that you are blind. The only place for you is where y...
CORRESPONDENCE. Discharged Stone-breaker. (To the Editor "The Standard.") [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 10 April 1915
CORRESPONDENCE. Discharged Stone-breaker. (To the Editor "The Standard.") . Sir,-I was informed this afternoon by Mr. Hart that I was dismissed from the Port Melbourne Town Connl cil's employment as a stone-breaker. The reason, I believe, is my being a resident of South iMelbourne. ]My period of time in this district is four weeks. I have been a ratepayer of Port M~elbourne for over 20 years, and have lived inhr Australia over 30 years. Now when I seek a little nmnulnl Iabour I am debarred from same. I was not making big money on it, averaging from 9/- to 15/- a week-a little more perhaps some times--but I was satisfied. I should like to know how I am expected to live without work. I would like to see a little more justice dealt me, and my ease regarded from a fair point of view. Yours, etc., GEORGE NEW?MAN

DEATH OF MR. G. SANGSTER, M.L.A. Popular Legislator Passes. Profound regret was expressed among the intimate friends in Port Melbourne of Mr. Geo.

Farewell Demonstration. And Presentations. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 17 April 1915
Farewell Demonstration. And Presentations. The Methodist Sunday School at Graham street was packed on Mon day evening last with members of the congregation and friends, who had come to bid farewell to the Rev. R. S. and Mrs. Joyce and their family, on the occasion of their transfer to Bendigo after three years' stay in Port Melbourne. The chair was oc cupied by Mr. R. Monkhouse, senior church. steward,- and a number of representative speakers voiced the sentiments entertained towards the guests of the evening. The Rev. Wm. McKie, of Holy Trinity, made an admirable speech stressing the responsibility resting on congregations to give due heed to the exhortations of those like Mr. Joyce, whose opportunities of preaching were necessarily restricted by the itinerancy. - Both Mr. McKie and Mr. Mason, of the town Mission, spoke highly of Mr. Joyce, and wished him and his every happiness in the future. Mr. Hammand addressed the gath ering as, one of the circuit stewards of the South Melbour...
FAREWELL SERVICES. Conducted by Rev. R. S. Joyce. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 17 April 1915
FAREWELL SERVICES. Conducted by Rev. R. S. Joyce. The Rev. Robert S. Joyce, who is moving from the Methodist Circuit at Port Melbourne to Bendigo, de livered farewell addresses at. the Graham street Church on Sunday last. In a foreword prefaqing the ser mon in the morning the reverend gentleman referred to the contention of the German officer, General Bern hardi, that a nation can only rise by military sacrifice. Mr. Joyce com bated that view. WVar, he said, was not a reflex of the mind of God. Sacrifice by a people was certainly essential to their achieving the high est and best but not military, how ever, but Christian sacrifice. He told how a German officer rescued an Englishman in imminent risk of being suffocated in a trench that col lapsed.. That noble action stood out boldly from the ignohblte condrt that had marked Genrmany's prosecution of the war. In all probability, could the customary conduct of that Ger man be ascertained, his life would have been found in keeping with ...

SHIRTS FOR SOLDIERS. Swallow and Ariell's Girls' Working Bee. Notes of Appreciation. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 17 April 1915
SHIRTS FOR SOLDIERS. Swallow and Ariell's Girls' Working Bee. .Notes of Appreciation. Making soldiers' "Good luck" shirts is to be the next venture by Swallow and Ariell's Girls' Working Bee. This very patriotic and utili tarian activity on the girls' part is conducted under.the auspices of the Lady Mayoress' League. Miss Elsie Holmes, the secretary of the Bee, submitted to the directors of Messrs. Swallow and Ariell Ltd. a sample of the garments the girls purpose to make. The directors were delighted with the proposition, and forthwith granted a large sum of money for material. Money was also furnished by the directors for material for 5,000 more khaki pocket handkerchiefs, and that quantity, when complete, will bring the number of handker chiefs made by the Bee up to 15,000. The. pattern of the new shirt is quite distinct from others; it allows for economy in the cutting, and is bound to be comfortable to the wearer. A good quality natural pure wool flannel is used, and a Shirt we...

ITEMS OF NEW-S. Four Foolish Sailormen. Before Messrs. Hester and Testro, J.l'sP., at the local court on Tuesday morning, Bertie South, a young trimmer on the s.s. Haurorata, was charged with using obscene language in a public place. Constable Gabriel Walsh said that the accused ex pressed himself obscenely at the corner of Graham and Station streets. He offended again on the way to the watchhouse. Constable Angus Mathieson also gave evidence.

William Buttleman and Jonathan Smith, of the Haurorata also, and Thomas Barrett, of the s.s Star of England, were charged with. being drunk in Port Melbourne the previous night.

CORRESPONDENCE. Council Loan Items Criticised. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 17 April 1915
CORRESPONDENCE. Council Loan Items Criticised. To the Editor of the "Standard." Sir,-It is the intention of the Port Melbourne Council to borrow 4,00ooo from the Commonwealth Bank. The schedule provides for some very necessary undertakings which will greatly benefit that town. On the other hand some of the items included, which are proposed to be: proceeded with at once, would be absolute waste of the ratepayers' money. There are three items included in this work amounting in all to £5 920, which, primarily, ought to be very seriously considered, viz.: i. Re-building of Town Hall... -3620 2. Purchase of steam roller ... 1000 '3. Purchase of stone-crush ing machine and tar-mixing apparatus ......... 1300 -5920 One can readily appreciate the desire, of local councillors to do their best for the ratepayers, but in this case we say-"What are our town fathers thinking of." In con connection with the first proposition,: just let us turn our attention to the neighbouring suburbs. Analyse t...

MEETING IN COMMITTEE. Cr. Morris Opposes Practice. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 17 April 1915
MEETING IN COMMITTEE. Cr. Morris Opposes. Practice. The present practice of the Town Council of meeting in Committee on Tuesday night in one week, and in Council on Tuesday evening the week following,. does not appeal to Cr. J. Morris. He holds the opinion that the Council should meet fort nightly--in committee, if dlecessary, and in coubcil on the one night. On Tuesday night last, at the meeting of the Public Works Com mittee, he moved that at its rising the Committee adjourn for two weeks. Cr. Morris contended that Committees meeting one week and the Council the next was unneces sary. Cr. Gill seconded. Meeting week ly unnecessarily brought the officers back at night once a week; A fort nightly meeting would be sufficient. The change would effect a saving in lighting. When the Committees and. the Council meet on the one night, the night's work was done well in time. If anything important needed special consideration, a special Com mittee meeting could be held. Cr.- Sinclair oppose...
