PORT TOWN HALL. Suggested Extension. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 11 July 1914
PORT TOWN HALL. u: ggested Extension. S.'" co;mmunication from the Board of Health demanded such drastic 'sanitary alterations to the Excelsior Hall, that the Town Council, on Tues day evening, was constrained to con sider the question as to whether it was financially worth while. Cr. Russell moved that the matter be re ferred to the surveyor to bring up a report as to the cost of the alterations required, and to show the amount of revenue derived from the hall within the past 12 months. Cr. Crichton seconded. The ques tion was whether the council was jus tified in making the alterations. Cr. Sinclair: It appears to me that it is "Good-bye" to the Excelsior Hall, so far as entertainments in future are concerned. The council should consider the question of get ting the Town Hall enlarged. (Hear, hear.) It would cost about £500 to effect the alterations at'the Excelsior 'Hall.

ITEMS OF NEWS. Public Reserves. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 11 July 1914
ITEMS OF NEWS. Public Reserves. It is necessary that these beauti ful little spots in our city should be carefully protected. While the coun cil. iid those interested are plantiii shade trdes, chief amongst'iwhich is the wattle--ustalirala's native floier,I it behoves residents to see they are hot watntonly destroyed: Prdbablh, through carelessness or want of thotght, children are the chief of fenders.

We conceive it.to be a public duty to issue this notice in the citizens' 'inR terests.

LABOR AND LOYALTY. To the Editor of "The Standard." [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 11 July 1914
LABOR AND LOYALTY. To the Editor of "The Standard." . Sir-S. T. Riley admits in his open ing sentence that he is. one of those "who have.a smattering, etc.," S.T.R. a litt!ce knowledge is a A?ngerous thing. Drink 4eep or shun the Ely sian spring. S.T.R. next poses as a "fakir." His "goods," as he calls them, are so badly malde up that even "I" do not recognise them: Pity me, gentle reader, and, in doing so, drop a tear of sympathy for "S.T.R.," and of your charity pray for his enlighten ment. "Candid critics" generally belong to the untutored, unread classes. Of the late Queen Victoria, no more need be said, save that I admitted Great Britain had had Evil Monarchs, &c.. "De mortuis nil nisi bonum" is a motto, the active principle of which "C.T.R." may well practice. It almost makes one vain when "S.T.R." states my ability to "enu merate a number of economic causes.' Really, my pen almost blushes at the implied knowledge, but, alas! the blissful objection is only spoilt later...

ELECTION DAY. Holiday for Council Employees. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 11 July 1914

Page) at the last council meeting, in moving that the council's employes-save those engaged in ne cessary work--be given a holiday on Federal election day. •"It is done in other parts of the world.

Gill, who pointed out. that the liotels were closed from noon until 8 p.m. in New Zealand, and that the :workers knocked-off at mid-day. The motion was carried.
OUR DEATH RATE. (To the Editor of the "Standard") [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 11 July 1914
SOUR DEATH RATE. (To t;he Editor of the "Standard") Sir--In reference to Dr. Rosenfield's criticism. of my evidence given before the Housing Commission, I have to state that Idquoted from sworn evidence given to a previous Parliamentary committee, in-which the death rate was quoted as stateid by me. I am not responsible for those figures. I ciuoted them correctly, and for that I am responsible. Mr. A. M. Laughton, Government Statist, in the: Victorian Year Book, 1911-12, the latest I have-at. hand, gives the figures: Port Melbourne, 8;98; Kew, 8.08;tCam berwell, 8.21. These figures put a much improved light on the matter, at which I rejoice. So if these figures of Mr. Laughton are correct, and he is- our. authority, the sworn evidence quoted by me must be-incorrect.. I drew a com parisofi between Port Melbourne and St. Kilda, fvourable to Port Melbourxie, and which shows my impartiality,. and my desire to get at the facts. I am sorry to have given Dr. Rosenfield the -trouble to trav...
