The Elections. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 29 August 1908

The Elections. The municipal elections on the Peninsula this year on the whole were quiet. No burning questions were before the ratepayers, and the fact of the retiring councillors in each instance being returned shows that the electors were satisfied with the doings of their municipal representatives. In the Frankston and Hastings shire there were no contests, though there was promise of a fight for Cr Thornell's seat in the Centre riding, but Mr J. Scott did not continue his candida ture, and Mr C. Murray was accorded a walkover. In the Mornington shire the retir ing councillors were Messrs Nunn, Bradford and Alston, and MIr Curwen Walker also entered the lists. All four candidates canvassed assiduously, and a flutter of excitement evidenced itself as election day approached. The result was the return of the three re tiring councillors in remarkably close order, Cr Alston topping the poll by two votes only. Mr Curwen-Walker, ,who sat at the council table a couple of years ago, pol...

District News Reports of district functionF, items of local interest, and information of all kinds will be thankfully received by the Editor. - MOOROODUC. Overlooking this important railway station is situated, on nice grassy undulating land, the old established homestead of Mr M'Lellan, senr., for many years a councillor in the Morn ington shire, but now retired. At one time dairying was carried on ex tensively, and a very fine herd was selected, but with the increased price of wool and mutton, combined with less work, the cows were disposed of, and at the present some very fine sheep can be seen contentedly grazing and fattening on small pad docks of rape, which looks very pleas ing and green in contrast to the brown grass. The raising of lambs is also given due consideration, and one may see some very fine lambs frolicking about and making good use of their young life.

The Theatre. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 29 August 1908

The Theatre. Miss Margaret Anglin's first Melbourne appearance at Her Majssty's Theatre last Saturday evening was undoubtedly a triumph. As Marise V,,ysir., the erring woman in Bernstlin's modern draria, " T'he Thief," the young American star kept her immense audience spell bound, as in the second act particularly she passed through scene after ssene of intense emotional feeling, which caused them to hurst into stoams of ap plause as soon as the tension was slack- ened. At the end of the performance the house resounded with he arty calls. and both the talented young actress, Mr G. S. Titherade (who of course received the heartiest of greetings) and the rest of the clever company, including Mr Henry Kolker, received well merited ap plause. "The Merry Widow" has been faci nating playgoers in Adelaide for the last two weeks, where the Lehar rmas cotte has been playing to crowded and appreciative houses. To-day the company leave the South Australian rapital by train for Sydney, where th...

Football Match at Carrum [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 29 August 1908

Football Match at Carrum The Vacuum Oil- Coy.'s football team and supporters journeyed to Carrum on last Saturday week, and a very enjoyable time was spent. Re freshments were provided by the ladies of Carrum, and the spectators, who were present in large numbers were treated to a fine game of football, The Vacuum Oil Coy. has about 200 of a clerical staff alone, and the strength of their team can be gauged from the fact that Harris (Carlton), Onyons (Melbourne), Cowell (St. Kilda), and Landermann (Essendon), are members of the staff. The first quarter was all in favor of the Vacuum players, Lash showing out promninently in defence, and his aerial flights won for him the applause of the spectators. Carrum started.the second quarter with a better system, but Jolly (captain) was not to be de nied, and with the wind against his team he played a fast ruck, composed of WVheatley (the famous amateur run ner, who has represented the State at Athens at Olmpic games), and him self, with Pedd...

Football. THE WATSON COMPETITION. SOMERVILLE v. FRANKSTON. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 29 August 1908

Football. THE WATSON COMPETITION. SOMERVILLE v. FRANKSTON. These teams met at Mornington on Saturday, for the third time this season, the result being a win for Frankston by 14 points. Great interest was evinced in the match, and with great enterprise the Somerville club chartered a special train. The step justified itself, as the train was largely patronised, a considerable num ber travelling by it from Frankston, and others were picked up at stations on the way. The guarantee was easily raised, and, we understand, the Somer ville club made a good profit on the train. In addition to the load by rail, there. was a large attendance at the match by road, about'20 vehicles leav iug Frankston, and altogether there was an assemblage of about 1000 peo ple at the match. The ground was rather heavy, and the ball wet and slippery, but very little rain fell dur ing the game. The contest was um pired by Messrs Brown and Wilson in alternative quarters, and both acquit ted themselves fairly. ire...

Our Children's Competition. "THE ORIGIN OF THE UNITED STATES." [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 29 August 1908

Our Children's Comrpeti tion. " THE ORIGIN OF THE UNITED STATES." Five of our Peninsula scholars have sent in essays on the subject sketched out for their consideration, associated with the visit of the American fleet to Hobson's Bay. The number is about as many as we anticipated, and on the whole the theme has been creditably dealt with and in an inter esting style. Some of the young essayists have treated it more in the light of the "Discovery of America," but our idea was to induce them to trace the "Origin of the United States" as an offshoot of the British coloni sation. In other words, to show, as one of the dailies expresses it, that "The Mother country had driven her daughter out of her heart and house by a course of policy, which her own statesmen have since recognised as one of tyranny and injustice,", traceable alike to Stuart and Georgian follies and misrule. This conception has been best brought out by Miss Sylvia Farr, school 841, Flinders. and Miss Ethel Thompson, sch...

DROMANA v. SORRENTO. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 29 August 1908

DROMANA v. SORRENTO. Teams from these clubs met on the Sorrento ground for the first time this season on August 15th. Although Dromana were last on the list in con nection with the Peninsula Association games, they have a fine lot of players, and this was shown by the way in which the local team was defeated. Dromana led all through, and ran out winners by 28 points- The scores were : Dromana 7-9 (51 points). Sorrento 3-5 (23 points). J. McLear (roving) was the best player for the visitors, and good work was also done by Wyatt, Callanan, Clydesdale (forward), Murphy and Downward (centre), Cleine, G. McLear and Hoskings (backs). Salvas played a brilliant game for Sorrento, his marking and kicking being very fine. Dowell, Cooper, Thomson, Kennedy, Templeton, White and Sutton also played well for the losers. The visiting team were entertained at tea at Cr Clarke's " Glen Arm House," and speeches were made by Mr Austin Cooper for Sorrento, and responded to by Mr Ray Wyatt (Dromana).
