The Rule of the Road. ANOTHER IDEA BY CR NAYLOR. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 14 February 1914
The Rule of the Road. ANOTHER IDEA BY CR NAYLOR. Cr Naylor brought forward the following motion at the Prahran Council meeting " That steps be taken to make a bye-law or regulation providing that every driver of a vehicle or motor car who intends to pass on the left or near side of a tramway car, when such tramway car is at a standstill, shall draw up immediately, and stop before arriving at such tramway car, until the roadway is clear of passen gers entering or leaving a car." Cr Naylor said the idea as ex pressed in the motion was in force in large cities in England. Cr Morris, who seconded the motion, said a system of the kind need only be made applicable to the larger thoroughfares. Crs Chambers, Nicolson, Flintoft and McIlwrick, whilst acknowledg ing that the traffio regulations could be improved in some directions, ex pressed the view that it would be wholly impracticable to give full effect to the motion. The matter was referred to the finance committee.

St. Kilda Cemetery. ANNUAL BALANCE SHEET. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 14 February 1914
St. Kilda Cemetery. ANNUAL BALANCE SHEET. The annual report and balance sheet by the St. Kilda Cemetery trustees show that the total burials in 1913 was 318, Expenditure ex ceeded receipts by £134 3s 8d. That and the deficit in 19,2 had reduced the capital by over £225. This drift was mainly due to the weekly wages sheet having increased by over 25 per cent., and its revision was neces sary if the trusttes were to carry on within their means. The fund for maintenance in perpetuity now stood at 9539 10s, of which £600 was on fixed deposit for two years at 4 per cent. with the Commercial Bank.

West St. Kilda and its Sea Beach. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 14 February 1914
West St. Kilda and its Sea Beach. A visitor to West St. Kilda at the present time is more liable than not to have this conundrum served up to him-" Find our Sea Beach !" The visitor is liable to clothe his physiognomy in--a supercilious smile just to show his contempt for the ease in which the query could be answ-red. Then, with a wave of bi. arm he would naturally point towards that portion of Port Phillip which is bounded by St. Kilda West and say- " There is your sea beach." But that is just where he would fall in-in the figurative sense-notinto the sea! By ocular demonstration the West St. Kildaite would quickly show to the uninitiated visitor that the sea beach had vanished. "Where to ?" the now simple-minded visitor is bound to ask. Without beating about the bush, the reply is certaill to comr back plump-"Ask Catanl." Just so. The position is that under a comprehensive scheme of foreshore improvements commenced at West St. Kilda a few years ago, under thb supervision of Mr Cat...

Local Municipal Tramway. Employes Reading Room and Library. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 14 February 1914
Local Municipal Tramway. Employes Reading Room. and Library. On Saturday evening a number of gentlemen assembled at the Prahran Malvern Tramways Trust's car de pot, when the new reading-room and library, which the trust has provided for its employes, was officially opened by Sir Frank Madden, who, in declar ing the reading-room open, made a few remarks appropriate to the occasion. Mr. Duke, on behalf of the employes, returned thanks, and in doing so said that if other employers treated their employes like the Tramways Trust, it would help to settle the labor pro blem. Amongst those present was the chairman of the trust (Mr. Alex. Cameron), members of the trust; Hon. D. Mackinnon, M.L.A.; Hon. J. K. Merritt, M.L.C.; and Mr. MIcCut cheon, M.L.A., and others. The library and reading-room, which contains a large number of -books and all the latest periodicals, is entirely free to all employes, and is likely to be largely availed of. A librarian is in charge of the library, and honks may...

Bowling. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 14 February 1914
Bowling. By BOWLER. The aerial flights of Hawker, at Caullield last Saturday, had no at tractions for bowlers, although it is asserted that on certain greens south of the Yarra some bowlers did find it rather inconvenient to keep one eye towards the sky and the other on a green sward on terra firma. How ever, there were some real good con tests throughout the afternoon. Melbourne had a bye. Armadale had their colors lowered by M.C.C. (at present unbeaten), and the result was important, inasmuch as the one-time doughty Armadale might just as well pack up its traps and go away for a holiday, as their Saturday's defeat put them right out of this season's premiership. The totals were:--M..CC., 101; Armadale, 87. As to the Armadale skips, Stephens was badly beaten by 18 to 31. Waxman must really have been troubled. with Hawker's biplane, be cause he also was squelched by quite a lot-15 to 27. It was left to Smith and Sutton to hold up their unds with credit, Smith scoring 28 to 23, and S...

AN OMNIVOROUS READER. THE LATE A. .J. CHURCH. Has any statistician attempted to ascertain the number of printed pages that would mark the maximum of a single reader's reading ? - I was staggered years ago by a casual remark of Professor . Saints bury that no doubt every one of the; 14,000 volumes in Southey's library: had licen carefully read by the oaner once and most of them more than once.

New Premises for the South Yarra Club. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 14 February 1914
New Premises for the South Yarra Club. An important meeting of the South Yarra Club was held on Saturday evening. The importance of the meet ing lies in the fact that it was decided to move into new club rooms. The chair was occupied by the pre sident (Mr. 1B. Matthews), and amongst those present were the Hon. Donald Mackinnon, M.L.A., Cr. Rupert Nicolson, and other hearty supporters of the club. Consideration was given to a scheme promulgated by a committee for the securing of new club rooms, which recommended the purchase of building No. 226, Toorak-road (oppo site Dr. Lempriere's). Plans for the alteration of the building, which had been prepared by the club's architect, the Mayor of Prahran (Cr. E. H. Willis), were submitted, and Cr. Willis was deputed to carry out neces sary alterations to building No. 226. The plans provide for extensive al terations, and they were adopted by the meeting. In the club's new premises provision will be made for a large billiard room for three tab...
