Where Should the Prahran Municipal Buildings Be? [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 7 February 1914
Where Should the Prahran Municipal Buildings Be ? The Prahran City Council did the correct thing in referring Cr Naylor's scheme to sell the site of the present Municipal Buildings to committee for serious consideration. That course was demanded in more ways than one. The scheme is attractive ; it is practicable; it is feasible ; very many people would like to see it absolutely carried into effect. The author of the scheme, too, is a man of practical views ; his ideals are not to-day only; his heart goes out for the weal and welfare of generations to come. Cr Naylor, in this business, has truly " hitched his waggon to a star," and he is now seeking to imbue the ratepayers and people generally of the city of Prahran with the same views as he holds, As already in dicated, Cr Naylor can rest assured that he already has a goodly number of his way of thinking. The proposal put forward is for new and up-to-date Municipal Buildings to be erected within a garden area, taking in Walker stree...

"Mayor!" [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 7 February 1914
" Mayor !" Whether it is elsewhere etiquette, usage, or the recognised practise, d.ponen knoweth n' t, but Cr Naylor, whenever he is addressing the chair at the Prahran council meetings, never says " Mr Mayor," like every other councillor does, but only utes the one word-" Mayor!" At Monday's council meeting Cr Naylor must have ejaculated " Mayor !" over a hundred times. It can hardly be said it is pleasant' to listen to, and it really gets so much on the nerves of councillors, and makes them so irritable, that they are almost rendered unfit to do the business of the ratepayers. Councillors have asked Cr Naylor to address the head of the council as " Mr-Mayor," and not abruptly as "Mayor!" but all to no purpose. At all events, whoever was the originator of the idea-if he be alive -he can confidently be informed that it is not a success-not as used by Cr Naylor. If the originator be dead there is some satisfactian in knowing that no more of his originalities will make their appearanc...

Motor Bus Traffic on St. Kilda Roads. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 7 February 1914
Motor Bus Traffic on SSt. Kilda Roads. At the meeting of the St. Kilda Council on Monday evening last, com plaint was made that the roads in the municipality were being seriously damaged by motor bus traffic. Cr.: Gibbs moved: "That the Mel bourne City Council be requested to ,convene a conference of representa tives of the municipalities interested to consider the question of the damage to road by motor bus traffic." He said that he had noticed that the road (and especially near the gasometer on the St. Kilda-road) had all .gone to pieces, and it was undoubtedly due to motor buses. The damage that was being done to roads in this manner was going to cost councils thousands of pounds yearly. The South Mel bourne Council was having an agree ment with the omnibus company, with the object of obtaining something to wards the maintenance of the roads. He contended that if something was not done, they would have no roads at all.
"BURNING WINTER" IN THE ALPS. A PICTURESQUE SWISS CUSTOM. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 7 February 1914
"BURNING WINTER" IN THE ALPS. A PICTURESQUE SWISS CUSTOM. The coming of Spring is eagerly looked forward to in all countries, 'but it is in those parts of the globe wher2 t.1 winter is long, and wh*re the snow lies on the ground for many months at a stretch that spring is, perhans, fully appreciated. In several of these countries a day is set apart as a national holiday when the winter snows benin to melt, and in many towns the sn!ire popu lation assembles in thl principal square, where they perhaps burn the effigy of Winter, or indulge in some form of national rejoicing. Throughout the whole of the world, however, there is perhaps no more curious or picturesque custom than that indulged in by the Swiss at Zurih, and in other parts of that beautf :l country, on the approa.:ll of spring. By far the greater pcrtion of Swite:rland is covered with snow from late in November till about the mnddle of April, and it is not al together unnatural that the Swiss should indulge in some form of ...
