BUILDING REGULATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 21 February 1914

BUILDING REGULIA T'IONS. Very many years ago a ditty ap peared in " The Advertiser" written by our old friend Mr Frank John stone, entitled " It's going to be done." It did not apply to the building regulations-there were no building regulations then, and not too many buildings--but evert at this late hour it might be brought up-to date and published in connection with these long delayed regulations. It is stated by very old residents that regulations were periodically discussed many years ago. A num ber of those who discussed them are among the dear departed. Others will probably follow in their wake by the time finality is reached. The work of considering some draft regulations was set down for last Monday evening at 9 o'clock at the ordinary council meeting, but what mattered; they were set down for discussion the Monday before that, and several Monday's before that again. Cr Pearce rose at 9.2o prompt with a foolscap sheet containing a number of proposed alterations and addition...

OFFENSIVE CONDUCT. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 21 February 1914

OFFENSI'E GCOVDUC'T. At Thursday':, court a youth named John Shearer was charged with behav ing in an offensive manner at the corner. of Buckley and Victoria streets on 9th February.

Shearer said that he had been up country and had just come back. He was talking to a mate when somebody called out " Yow ! " and he ran away. A fine of 10/-, in default 18 hours, was imposed. Footscray bowlers registered another win last Saturday and rather surprised the Middle-Parkers by the excellence of their play.

ENGINEERS' PICNIC. MEPHAN FERGUSON'S EMPLOYES. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 21 February 1914

ENGINEERS' PICNIC. MEPHAN FERGUSON'S EMPLOYES. Though the weather was .warm and travelling hardly conducive to enjoyment employes of Mephan FergusonS& Co, managed to put in a jolly day last Saturday on the oc casion of their annual picnic. The men employed by the firm named have held many excursions since the works of Mephan Ferguson were removed from North Melbourne to West Footscray but most of them have been per train and it was for tunate that this year the committee should have decided on a sea trip. Warm though it was 'n board the s,s: Mourilyan, which conveyed the picnickers to Schnapper Point, it would have been infinitely warmer in the stuffy carriages of doubtful age that are usually, provided for picnic parties, and the employes ap preciated the fact. Both going and coming the sea was as smooth as the proverbial mill pond and on arrival there were plenty of attrac tions to enable the picnickers to en joy themselves. Of these the inevit able sports came first and f...

PROPOSED TRAMWAY EXPERT'S REPORT TO BE OBTAINED. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 21 February 1914

PROPOSED TRAMWAY EXPERT'S REPORT TO BE OBTAINED. After several meetings, at which little of a practical nature was done, the conference called by the Foots cray council to consider the question of establishing a tramway system between Essenclon and Williams town, via Footscray, got down to business at the meeting held at the local town hall on last night week. Representatives of B3rayhrook were again conspicuous by their absence, and seeing that at the tirst meeting they had a good deal to say in re gard to the remarkable proposal that the tramway should have its starting point at tlaribyriunlg, miles away from settled. population, in preference to the direct and only payable route, it was astonishing to hear it reported that the Braybrook council has not yet agreed to con tribute its share, estimated at fIo, of the cost of obtaining an expert report on the tramway proposal. Cr Liston (mayor) was present to represent Williamstown. Cr Rhoden provided representation for Essen don for ...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 21 February 1914

While it is satisfactory to , ind that the conference considering the ques tion of establishing a tramway service from Essendon to Williamstown has at last got down to business by deciding to procure expert report it is little short of lamentable to find that the absurd idea of bringing the tramway around from Maribyrnong through miles of practically uninhabited country is being put forward us the route favored by the councils concerned. A tramway tra versing that circuitous route is fore doomed to failure. The returns would never pay interest on the cost of the cars. It is as far removed as possible from avenues of traffic and starting as it does from a point that is really miles from the heart ot the Essendon district would be absolutely useless to residents of that suburb. It would, indeed, be a white elephant and the brain that con ceived the route must be a peculiar one withal. And that any ody of men pro fessing to be capable of expending large sums of ratepayers' money should...

MUNICIPAL INSURANCE. To the Editor of THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 21 February 1914

Al7NICIPAt INSUIR AiVCE. To the Todi/tr of Tilt ADVERTisER, Sir, -Seeing that our Council is con sidering the question of establishing an insurance Department, a few remarks on the subject may assist. future de liberations. What I propose to deal with mainly is the probable working of sane if established. In the first place the operations will be limited to 'ootscray District. This you will immediately see curtails.the scope for obtaining business; business that I might. add is sought for iy every other Insurance Company'in all suburbs and all country towns in this State. This they.do, so as t.heir risks will lie well scattered, and by so doing they are more likely to make their under taking a financial success. The next, question for consideration is the construction of the buildings in the district. It will be admitted that the majority of shops in the business area are of brick, and people imay argue that they are perfectly safe. Without going into detail it might be well to remi...

DEAR LIVING. To the Editor of "The Advertiser." [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 21 February 1914

DEAR LI'(IAG. To the Editor of "The Advertiser. " Sir.--Footscray, once the suburb where living was cheap, is now exploited almost beyond every other suburb by the providores of certain foodstuffs, Our bakers, to give one instance only, deliver to Ascot Vale, Williamstown, &c., at Id per loaf less than they charge us; it is said that at Brunswick a 41b loaf sells over the counter at 53d -we pay 7d. We will be exploited, as long as sup pliers can form tight associations and as long as they can cut off flour sup plies from any baker who dares to act independently unless the consumers themselves organise and present a united front on matters unfairly cast upon them. These words are fairly tame and quiet but to give them their signific ance let us suppose that the consumers already organised had commenced work. They woultl doubtless act on business lines and say to the allied pur veyors "There must be no more ran dom running of delivery waggons over this city, it must be blocked...

RETURNED! [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 21 February 1914

RETURNED I At Monday's court Rose Ferguson was charged with being drunk and dis orderly and with having used obscene language on February 10th. Some time ago defendant was a frc quent visitor at the court, and when answering these charges always expressed repentance and prom ised she had transgressed the law for the last time, but to no purpose, and the bench was at its wits end to know what to do. When last before the bench the magistrates sent her to a convent for 9 months, but now, one month before the expiration of that period she is back again, having, it is alleged, scaled the wall at the convent and made straight to Footscray. Constable Perry stated that about 7-30 on the 10th inst, he was sitting in the police station when accused came in in a drunken condition. At the same time the Abbotsford convent rang up and said she had escaped and she ran out into the street as well as she was able. He followed and on catching hold of her defendant fought like a tigeress and he had to...
