. CRICKET. Notes by "COVER POINT." FOOTSORAY v BRIGHTON. The first eleven journeyed to Brighton last Saturday in beautiful weather. Foots cray were lucky enough to win the toss and hadno hesitation in deciding to hat. P Gleeson and T. Addison opened for Foots cray to the bowling of Grieve and Neville. With the score at 17 Gleeson put his leg in front to one from Grieve and was out .lb.w. with Il against his name. C Easton was next but soon lost Addison for a partner as the latter was out to a good catch at short leg after making 10-2 for 21. Rev. Rob ertson joined but the latter was bowled by .trieve before he had scored, and Gray, after making tx, was bowled by Grieve. Robertson carried his score to II when le also was bowled oy Grieve.

ANNUAL PICNIC. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 7 February 1914
ANNUAL PICNIC. Though annual picnics have been held by employees of the Colonial Sugar Rielining Company for twenty three years ; though most all of them have been splendidly successful, none were more pleasurable than the &nbsp; excursion held on Saturday last. The weather was simply perfect. A refreshing southerly breeze tempered the January sun's rays and yet was not strong enough to disturb the sur- face of the sea, or rob the bay of its genial mood, and, consequently even the most easily affected of sea excursionists felt no qualms either going or coming on the long jouney &nbsp; to Sorrento, most delightful of water- ing places. The favorite paddle steamer Hygeia was chartered for the picnic and employes, their rela- tives and others who appreciate an opportunity of participating in such an invariably well managed outing, to the number of 1200, boarded the vessel at the company's wharf at Yarraville and disposed themselves as befitted their inclinations to best...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 7 February 1914
If evidence were required to show the crass folly of introducing party polities into municipal affairs it was forthcom- ing on Monday evening last, when at the meeting of the local council an attempt was imade to displace Cr Shil- lahber from the position of representa- tive of Footscray on the Metropolitan Board of Works. That position has heen held by Cr Shillabeer with credit to himself and greatly to the advantage of Footscray and Yarraville, for 9 years. By gaining the position of vice-chair- man of the hoard the holder was able to and did wield an influence that has enabled this district to obtain a service from the Board that other suburbs are still craving for, and not the very faintest charge of doing those things he ought not to have done, or of not doing those things he ought to have done was preferred against him. But purely for party reasons he was opposed by a councillor who is a veritable novice in municipal affairs. And for purely party reasons four councillors were ...

COUNCIL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 14 February 1914
cO UNcL NOTEs. After the strained relations exhibi ted at the previous week's meeting, caused through Cr Jenkins insisting on the right of private judgment on matters not included in the Labor Party's municipal platform, some development was regarded as prob able last Monday evening. But there was none. Councillors were civil as usual to each other and if there were any heartburnings because the cup of ambition had been dashed from the lips of Cr Pearce no indica tion of it was allowed to protrude in public. The long list of business set down for transaction or arising in formally did not include anything of a contentious character not a solitary division being taken the while even ing. Amongst the correspondence sub mitted to the Public \Vorks coma mittee, of which Cr 13ell is chairman, was a letter from the Metropolitan lBoard intimating that water reticula tion had been ordered to 1)e carried out in Tennyson, HIamiltoii and Seddon streets, and requiring a guarantee of 6 per cent ...

CACTUS PRODUCTS COY. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 14 February 1914
AG&'TUS PRODUCTS &'OY. Mr Scott, a representative of the Cactus Products Coy., attended at the Footacray council meeting on Monday and submitted a blue print of the proposed works and plant to be used in the process of distilling a mixture to be used for the purpose of exterminating the cactus which has caused so muuch damage, princi pally in parts of Queensland. It was stated no fumes whatever would escape into the atmosphere; that the material was condensed, run into a well and drawn off into iron drums. It was too valuable to allow it to escape. It was the last thing they would dream of. The company.was putting downv a similar plant in Sydney and the health officer of that city informed the speaker that it was not a noxious trade by abmy means. T'Ihe concoction was mnade from sulphuric acid, arsenic and salt, and they considleied it would be elfective in destroying the Queensland cactus. The government of that Stste, it was said, has made a grant of 200,000 acres ...

THE COUNCIL STAFF. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 14 February 1914
THE CN 017CIL STAFF. SIt will be remembered that at a previous meeting of the Pootscray Council the Surveyor was askeui to bring up a report as to the best method of dealing with the council staff. Mtr Neylan submitted an in terim report on Monday last and, when he came to those employed at the crusher receiving 9/ per day, he recommended that there be an in crease to 9/6 per day. Cr Pearce interjected that he thought there was a wages board rate of io/6 per clay. Cr McDonald said that councillors would have noticed that the Metro politan Board of Works were paying their laborers 9/ per d uy, asitu he con sidered that they-as a council that had ulways been in the van in the matter of decent wages to their em ployes- should fall into line. H-fe intended to move in that direction. Cr Pearce said he would move as an amendment that a committee of four, with the Mayor ex-officio, be appointed to go into the whole ques tion as to wages, &c., of the staff, and report to the council...
