V.F.A. and J. McKenzie. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 6 June 1914
V.F.A. and J. McKenzie. The refusal of the V.P.A. permit and umpire committee to grant a permit to the above well-known player has caused a lot of dissatisfaction in the Port. The player referred to was given a clear ance by his club (Brunswick) to Mel bourne. This was granted by the As sociation (who, by the way, gave McKenzie an excellent charcater, and wished him the best of lick). The League, however, gave McKenzie a knock back, and the Port's committee, negotiating with McKenzie, secured his services as coach to the team. After a number of attempts Ports managed to get a clearance from Brunswick for McKenzie, and incidentally an excellent character. On Wednesday evening McKenzie applied .to the Permit and Umpire Com mittee fora transfer to Port Melbourne, and after deliberation extending over an hour to consider the request, it was refused by a very narrow majority. Association supporters are now faced with the question: Do the delegates of the V.F.A. play into the hands of the...

A DANGER SPOT. Inadequate Water Pressure. Board of Works Obdurate. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 6 June 1914
QADANGER SPOT. Inadequate Water Pressure. Board of Works Obdurate. The receipt of a letter from thP .Metropolitan -Board of W?orks gave, rise to some vigorous remarks at the meeting of the Town Council on Tues day evening. It had reference to the matter of laying a water main in Gra ham:street, and 'containfed the bland intimation that-notwithstanding co gent objections recently formulated by the Council-the Water Supply Committee had decided to adhere to its plan of laying a 4-inch main; whereas the Council had unitedly urged, when first consulted-(formal ly, it would seem)--that nothing less than a 6-in. main would meet re quirements. The defectiveness of the water pressure in that part of the town beyond the railway line is a positive menace to residents in the event of an outbreak of fire. The Council perceives the danger and is anxious to avert it. Many of the water mains in the locality, as Cr. Sinclair remarked, have been down for thirty years. But apparently any thing is sup...

DUBIOUS LECTURE-SUBJECT. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 6 June 1914
DUBIOUS LECTURE-SUBJECT. Some discussion took place at the meeting of the Town Council on Tuesday night week, on a subject intro duced by the Mayor. (Cr. Page) with regard to the approaching series of winter lectures.. He stated that a certain Mr., Spears had applied for permission to give a lecture and that he was practically told that he was not wanted here. Cr. Walter observed that the sub ject of the proposed lecture was in relation to the old convict days. He deprecated the resuscitation of that kind of thing; the brutal times were happily past. Cr. Sinclair opined that a visit from Harry Lauder or Daisy Jerome would be more congenial. Cr. Gill disagreed with Cr. Walter. It was not because something had happened that they should not talk about it. It was resolved that Mr. Spears be asked to make a further application. Cr. Smith: It can then go to the Amtisements Committee and Cr. Wal ter can censor it. (Laughter.)
