SUDDEN DEATH. Sensation at Factory. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 18 July 1914
SUDDEN DEATH. Sensation at Factory. A painful sensation was caused at the factory .of Messrs.

OUR TOWN HALL. Question of Enlargement. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 18 July 1914
OUR TOWN HALL. --t-t Question of Enlargement. The general opinion of residents of Port Melbourne cannot be otherwise than that the action suggested by Cr. Russell, with regard to the muni cipality's public halls, was the only reasonable one in the circumstances. The Excelsior Hell, which fell into the hands of the council some timo ago, stands practically condemned by the Board of Health; the require merits for its effective sanitation, in the opinion of Cr. Sinclair, would cost about £500 for effectuation, and the question naturally obtruded itself *as to whether it was worth iwhile. Oh viously it is not; the hall may be put to profitable use without such outlay. SMeantime we have a Town Hall that is woefully deficient as regards the requiremeats of the people. hTo mat ter what the form of entertainment the Town Hall will not hold moire than 400 people, or thereabouts, and Port Melbourne not only loses in prestige,? but is actually out of pocket by'a constant drift to other halls i...
THE MARSEILLEISE. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 18 July 1914
THE MARSEILLEISE. .. ...__ _ .. People are asking if it was a put-up job. Or whether the Mayor tipped him to do it; or some wag; or the French Consul; or whether he did it in a fit of cussedness; or whether it was in keeping with the eternal fit ness of things. But whatever the cause, it happened. In front of the. Town Hall, on Tuesday last, when the Union Jack~,luttered-.?To ielebrate the fall of the Bastille !";)-a foreign looking individual paused, and rested the supporting prop of a barrel organ on the pavement, and made a monkey that scampered on the top of the "in strument" hold out a cap, while the strains of the Marselleise were mechanically ground out. And the tragic part of the whole business was that the Miayor was not present to give a penny to the musician for an encore.
MASONIC HALL SOLD. Craft Secures Other Site. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 18 July 1914
MASONIC HALL SOLD. Craft Secures Other Site. The old Freemasons' Hall, Stokes street, has been sold to Messrs. Swallow and Ariell, Ltd., whose ex- panding business rendered the ac- quisition of the adjacent site emin- ently desirable. The ambition of Port Melbourne freemasons is to erect a larger and more modern structure, and to this end, they have purchased a site in Liardet-street, now occupied by two cottages. It is hoped to make a beginning in this direction within 12 months or so. The hall recently disposed of was built in 1858. At the outset it was of one storey, in blue-stone, but sub- sequently was added to by a storey in brick. This addition was made in the early seventies. The present Chief Justice, Sir John Madden - then Dr. Madden - was initiated at about this time. In the early days, when shipping concentrated at the Port, the lodge was instrumental in mak- ing Freemasons of many shipping captains, and other seafaring men. Still, at no period of the Lodge's his- tory h...

STREET AS A TIP. . Council Takes Action..
