BATTLE OF THE SITES. Where Should the Prahran Town Hall be? Council Decides Against Poll of Ratepayers. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 21 February 1914
BATTLE OF THE SITES. Where Should the Prahran Town Hall be ? Council Decides Against Poll of Ratepayers. At Prahran Council meetin'g on Mon day evening another discussion took place in reference to a proposal emanating from Cr. E. Naylor to re build the municipal buildings on the eastern side of Chapel-street in Walker-street. Cr. Naylor said that since the matter had been before the council at its last meeting, a great deal of feel ing had been introduced. He was acting merely in the interests of the ratepayers, and it was a foul untruth to say he was trying to advertise him self. His proposal was to buy all the properties in Walker-street, which were weatherboard, and could be pur chased cheaply. On each side of. Walker-street, in Chapel-street, he woulu purchase four properties. This would give a total frontage in Chapel street of 140 feet, on which a post office and bank could be built. The street entrance to the Town Hall would be 70 feet wide, and the hall would be 150 feet fr...

The firm, as will be seen by advertise ment elsewhere, advise people to "get busy and get three pounds!" This advice is given under somewhat novel conditions, viz., Messrs. Dicken son and Forster have placed the sum of £3 in the hands of a well-known Prahran citizen. This money will be presented to the first person asking the following questions:--"Have you seen Dickenson and Forster's new auction room, 99 Chapel-street?" and "Have you got the £3?" A good num ber so far have had a try for the trio of sovereigns, but so far have failed. A friend of ours during the week made a brave effort to win. But he was too excited. Seizing a well-known citi zen by the scruff of the neck, he blurted out, "Have you seen three pounds new auction room...

Proposed Tramway Through Albert Park. Prahran Council Makes Another Move. Ignores St. Kilda and South Melbourne. The f[1lowing clause in the re port of the finance committee of the Prahran council was brought forward on Monday evening, viz. " That a deputation from this council wait upon the Government for the purpose of urging the passing of a Bill autho:ising the construction of ati euctric tramway from High street, Prahran, to the St. Kilda beach via Albert Park and interven ing streets." Cr Nicolson, in moving the adop tion of the recommendation, said if they had to wait for the St. Kilda and South Melbourne Councils to take action, thev would never get a tramway through the Park.

The recommendation brought forward by the committee was adopted.

AMULSEMENTS PALAlS DE DANSE. Immensely popular and attractive has proved the Palais de Danse. With its spacious, splendid floor, its pic turesque setting and delightful music. Nightly this seaside ballroom becomes wondrously animated, and with the hun dreds of htappy couples moving in kaleidoscopic fashion, it is indeed pleasant to look upon. THE ENGLISH PIERROTS. As: is the usual thing for this com pany, their Pavilion at St. Kilda was, on Saturday night last, the scene of a very large company. The place was densely packed in every available part.

,OU II YAKRA KRIFLE 4wLU L. There was an attendance of twelve members to see how the "Saunders" Aggregate would finish, and also to participate in the (to this club) unique experience of seeing every man on his 'very own." The conditions for the I nllal shoot being "that no coaching, spotting, or in any way assisting any member, and each member to shoot singly," and with the distance at 1000 yards, 10 shots, the interest was well sustained until the last man went down, F. Gates, who had to get 36 to win, and 16 to get a prize. The best shoot was the first, Mr. T. Quayle, who got the splendid score of 41 off the rifle, but as he had missed a former shoot, lihe was unplaced. The next best was A. Wells, who got 30 from the shoulder, with L. Wells 28, H. Brown 27, and W. Saunders 26, were all to reach over 20. H. Cannon showed great determination in stick ing to his gun in the face of miss after miss, but without succeeding in find ing the target, whilst R. Marshall, who got a magpie fo...

At the meeting of the Prahran Council on Monday evening Cr Naylor moved that the council support the re elkction of Mr Cameron as chairman of the Trust for a further term of four years. There c:uld not (said Cr Naylor) be a more worthy L. Lt'ý man for the position. He gave almost night and day to the work of the Trust, and he was responsible for saving a great deal of money for the municipalities. Cr Chambers seconded the motion. He had had two months' experience on the Trust, and could bear out what Cr Naylor had said as to the worth of Mr Cameron. Mr Cameron had neglected his own business, and made tramways a hobby. Cr Morris said he understood that Mr Cameron was receiving a very fair salary, and had a right to private practise. He was paid a fair salary for a fair job. He (Cr Mo, rid) un ...
