FAULTY PRIVATE LANE. IMPROVEMENT LOAN SUGGESTED. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 28 March 1914
FAULTY PRIVATE LANE. IMPROVEMENT LOAN SUG GESTED. Amongst the several clauses in the report submitted by the surveyor to thc local council on Monday evening was one referring to the condition of a right-of-way at the rear of Smith street. The officer named said the lanf was in a very bad condition. Many years ago it was made with 3 pitcher channel in centre and metalled sides but the channel had been knocked about by traffic and required regrading. Tc make a good job of it it would be neces sary to pitch the channel to its full width at an estimated cost of £93. Cr Jenkins knew the spot and agreet that repairs were very necessary, large ly owing to the sinking of earth where the Metropolitan Board had made ex cavations. He thought it was a great hardship on property owners who had paid for making the lane once to com , pel them to pay another £93. Cr Johnson--We have.no option. Mr Neylan (surveyor)--n the block there ,are four rights-of-way, all in a similar condition. The people th...

COUNCIL EMPLOYES. SUPERANNUATION SCHEME REQUIRED. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 28 March 1914
COUNCI EMIPLO YES. SUPERANNUATION SCIIEME REQUI RED. What to do with municipal emplloyes who, after giving the best years of their lives in the service of the council, are reaching or have reached an age when they are no longer able to give value in work for the wages they re ceive, is a problem that sooner or later the local council must. face. It has Ibeen shown on nlrore than one occasion in reccntl years that councillors are averse to turning oft men, who for long years, have played their part manfully and well. It has been aflirmed that de spite the disabilit.y of old age they must. he retained, apparently until they he conll so fblel Ithati they can no longer continue to nnswer the roll call, and while this sympathetic policy is con tinued the prolem hbecomes harder to solve.

BOWLING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 28 March 1914
BOWLING NOTES. Notes by "Jack High." A sociable match was played last Sat urday between the A team and a team from Dandenong, and the Footscray players vied with each other in the effort to make the visitors comfortable. The green puzzled the Dandengites somewhat by its pace and mammoth draw, but they mastered it fairly well and, except for the rink opposed to Wintle's four, were :practically equal oni the scores. \Vintle's rink finished with a big majority of points in their favor. Sunshine, which entered pennant bowls this season for the first time, put up a fine performance by winging right through, ii eluding semi-final and final, without suffer ing a single defeat. They did not make the mistake of soaring too high but entered the C grade. Therefore instead of the pro bability of making an inglorious showing in a higher grade they emerged victorious and will have the satisfaction of unfurling apremiership pennant on the club's flag pole. They fully deserve all the success attain...

FOOTSCRAY TO SUNSHINE DIRECT ROAD TO BE STARTED. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 28 March 1914
FOOUTSC'AJ TO SUNSHINE DIRECT ROAD TO BE STARTED. It is a long time now since it was suggested in "The Advertiser" that an effort should he made to connect Footscray and Sunshine by a direct route along Barkly street. The matter was taken up by ex-Cr Caldecott and a conference was called, hiut since then the project has been allowed to languish at this end. Certainly an estimate of the cost was obtained but when Foots cray councillors found that a matter of .1,800 was involved they took alarm and, rather than move further, did nothing. 4 The Braybrook council, however, proved more enterprising, Much of their portion of the work has since been done and a- recent hint from that body that it was time Footscray made a start evidently had a good effect as a report on the subject was presented by the surveyor last Monday night. In this Mr Neylan said the cost of metalling upper Barkly street, west, from. Elphinstono street, full width, with 4 pitcher channel each side, would bn£?25 per ch...

SHOULD AUSTRALIAN GIRLS READ NOVELS? [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 28 March 1914
SHOULD A US'TRALIAN GIRLS BEAD NOVELS: Next to America. the Australian public as a wholo--workers, middle-class and well-to do-consume a greater quantity of reading matter per year than any other people under the sun. So says a writer in the March issue of Everylady's Journal. -Analysing further, the writer states that the Australian girl, compared with her English sister, has a remarkably wide knowledge, if not of literature, at least of books. And it is on the quality of these books, and the question of whether or not the quantily should be limited, that this article turns. The ques tionwas put to a number of leading public men, and these are, in lffect, some ef the replies received : The Hon. P. MI. Glynn Minister for Ex ternal Affairs, thinks that the young girl stould be kept away from books that ob trude, in a fetching garb, the seamy side of life, but that literature like that of Scott, where a healthy mind rellects itself on every page, is the stimulant required for the de v...

AN ADDITION TO NICHOLSON STREET. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 4 April 1914
AN ADDITION TO NICHOL SON STREET. It has been said that "Nothing suc coeds like succes:;" and we are in the habit of accepting the statement, and letting it go at that. Certain it is, how ever, that the old adage has a deal of good old-fashioned horse sense back of it. Success begets success. This is amply demonstrated in the fine, modern drapery warehouse just completed for Mr Forge of Nicholson street. Sixteen years ago Mr C. Forge opened "'lhe White Ilouse" to the people of Foots cray with the determination to meet the demands the public made for better drapery at a lower tipgure than, they were wont to pay. Hle succeeded. People came, and continued to come, to the man who had their interests at heart. He continued to succeed. Ad ditions to store and staff were made from time to time, culminating in the beautiful edifice just completed. The new building is quite the finest busi ness place in Nicholson street, and a credit to our city. The management assure us of their intentions ...

A STREET "TIP." [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 4 April 1914
A STREEE ET "TIP." Mr J. E, Gotch, in writing to the Footscray council on Monday, said: "I write to complain of the condition of Moreland street be tween Yewers and Btunbury sts., in which portion the council has adopted the disgusting mnethod of making a tip. About 200 tons of rubbish is tipped there; when the wind blows my house inside is thick with dust. It is a menace to health and depreciates the value of property. A\ccording to coun cil laws no rubbish must be placed on the streets, yet the council can violate this rule and no notice is taken. Also, after a good shower, water lays between the channels and street for days; the road should be graded to drain into the channel." The engineer was instructed to attend to the complaint. He men tioned that the locality had been -used as a depot for screenings, &c., but that hlie had given directions for its removal to a more suitable place away from habitation.
