Are the Prahran Municipal Buildings to be in Chapel street or Malvern road ? Both sites have any amount of friends, though, candidly speaking, the preponderating opinion seems to be, in fact, is, in favor of allowing the Municipal Buildings to remain in their present position.

For some time she lay idle, the authori ties being unable eithbr to sell her or to put her to pract cal use.

A Glenferrie Road Incident. An incident of a rather exciting character took place in Gleniferrie on Monday morning, owing to the fact that an electric tram car, which was travelling along Glenferrie-road to wards St. Kilda, suddenly left ihe rails. The incident happened bhe tween Wakefield and Park-streets. The tram collided with a verandah post, which it broke, and also smashed two plate glass windows in the business premises of Mr. J. Ward and Messrs. Frame and Co. The cause of the car leaving the rails was owing to the rails being filled with silt, which had been washed down by the rain of the previous night. The driver of the car was Ernest Cutler, and there were five passengers aboard, but fortunately all escaped injury.
