Football Correspondence. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 17 June 1911
Football Correspondence. To the Editor of "The Standard." Sir,-T gathered whilstjt Hastings on Situ,.d.-y last some phrases used by the President when alluding to my case re my playing with the Frankston team. I had no desire to enter in'o . cenrtroversy myself, and decided to leave same to the public, but when I learned that the President has made such extraordinary remarks, I could not'refrain from replying to them. I am told Mr McArthur said I was a tin god in Frankston, but evidently was only a baby that had not left my mother's apron strings, seeing that I wished to, and returned, each week-end to lrankston and my parents. In response thereto I desire to say that during the last 10 years I have been travelling throughout this State and Tasmania, and have never been away from Frankston for more than a month at a stretch, and almost every week end return to my home at Frankston, and there resides two ni hta of each week, and at many time, three.

THE RAILWAYS. FRANKSTON SERVICE COMPLAINED OF. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 17 June 1911
TIHE RAILWAYS. FRANKSTON SERVICE COM PLAINED OF. Very bitter have been complaints relative to the inadequacy of trains on the Frankston line during the winter. Representations hIye frequently been made to the authorities to remedy the evil, but so far without success. The following letters have appeared in a dai y .contemporary : Sir, - Like " Frankston' in the "Argus" of a recent date, I 'cannot understand how we cannot get a better train service. Both Car runm and Frankston are going ahead, but prospective residents are too often daunted by the thought that, though Prankston is but twenty six miles from Melboune, they have ai most inadequate service If some moter company could see their way to run a line of taxis or motors between Frankston and Mordi r.1oc,.1 am sure they" would esoon'-.be recouped for their out ay. Yours, etc., F. W. MJTCHELLSON. Kars street, Frankston. Sir,-.I agree with "Frankston' re garding tlhe t'ain service at night on the Frankston line. It is high time we...
TELEPHONES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 17 June 1911
TELEPH ONES. TO THE EDITOR. Sir,-I would suggest that you pub lish in your paper a list of the subscri bers with their addresses and numbers to the Frankston and Morniugton exchanges, also Droma;a and Sorrento. This will be of service right throughout the Peninsula, as many people will use 'phones from Government offices to subscribers and save many cold, and probably wet and useless journeys this weather. As Frankston, Mornington and probably others are having new members attached to thoso exchanges they will not be in the book for some time yet. Perhaps, monthly, you might add any new names in your paper so that subscribers may add them to their lists.-Yours, etc., CHARLES W. CAMPBELL [We will procure a list as far as. possible, and publish sanme in our next itsue.-ED. S.]

Sir,-On the evening of Thursday, the 11th inst., an old resident of Morn ingtop, observilg an influx of strangers to the town, set himse:f to find out the business which attracted these serious and mysterious characters He regrets, however, thait his intentions were utterly frtistrsted-in fact, fearfully fhustrated, as, upon seeking admission to their place of meeting, lie found himielf face to face with a weapon, bespeaking such violence as I am sure your readers would greatly deplore. From this out he stood at a distance in the hopes of being able to define the purpose of so austere an assneub!age. The utmost he could see, however, was that this mysterious assemblage did, at a late hourof the day, adjourn to1 house en ?e Esplanade, where, duriin thorday, ho had 6berived it dirove 'r poultry, p;gs and bottles march., From thence emanated such dread and aw...

OUR LETTER BOX.' (We do not necessarily identify ourselves with the opinions expressed by corres pondents.) FOOTBALL. TO TH' EDITOR OF THE STANDARD. Sir,-Having from time to time noted the doings of the management, of the Mornington Peninsula Football Association from the reports chron icled in your paper, I cannot refrain from protesting against the actions of the bhoard of managment, and I ven ture to say unless same are remedied and carried on in a businesslike man. nor, true sports and supporters in the various towns will cry enough.

TYABB. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 17 June 1911
TYABB. WVhen the Railway Commissioners passed through here on their annual tour some time back, they were met by. a deputation which placed before them the reasons why the local station should have a master of its own, and they promised to look into the matter. A few weeks ago, one of the deputation received a notice that the request had been favorably considered, and that a station master would eshrtly be ap pointed. On Saturday last, the cot - trol of the station was handed to a porter-in-charge, who is under the supervision of the master of a neigh boring station, and although the presence of a man will be- highly satisfactory for checking the loading of fruit and trees, we are litrtle or no. thing better off than we were before his advent, but the residents may, by sticking togother and dorng as much business as possible at this station, prove conc'usively that it is entitled to, and will have, a man who will be allowed to do his work independently of another. As will be seen pe...

EXCITING GAME WON- BY FRANKSTON. -For the second time this season the great rival footb:dl teams of the 'Pen insula, Hastings and'Fraokston, met on the Hastings grouid on Saturday last. After the heavy rain during the week the ground was a regular quag mire, large pools of wa-er lying in several places, the lower end being the worst. Rain fell heavily during the match, and, with the co d wind blow ing, the players had altogether a bad time in the wet. An exceptionally large attendance braved the elements to see the match, the Frankston club having chartered a special train, by which over 100 travelled. Both teams had hardly their best eighteens afield, and as \Vi'so (Hast ings' captain) aid Baxter (Fiank s-on)'led their mudlirks on to the field the payers were enthusiastical y cheered, and they deserved It. Bast ings were the favorites, being recog nised as unbeatable on their own -ground, and the heavy go...

NOTES. The secretary of the Somerville club acknowledges the following donations. to the funds:—Mr G. G. Cole andl Dr Griffith, 10s 6d each. Hastings' defeat by Frankston last Saturday was the third on their own ground in the memory of the old brigade of footballers. The blue and whites have all along been considered almost unbeatable at home, and followers of the game thought they would add another victory to their long list. But Frankston rose to the occasion, and played a game that sur- prised and pleased their supporters. Under the nom de plume of "Jim Weasel," a Somerville resident writes under date of June 1st:—Frank- &nbsp; &nbsp; ston Football Club could not play Jolly because he did not sleep four nights a week on the Peninsula.
