WILILAMSTOWN RACING CLUB. A SUCCESSFUL MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 18 April 1914

W\ILILAi?STOWN RACING CLUB. o--~-- A SUCCESSFUL MEETING, ON Monday the \W.R C held its Easter meeting. The attendance was large, the sport good, the weather line, and accordingly the finances healthy, The committee gives good stakes, with the result that there is always to be found quality, if not quantity, in the entries. If the number of entries is smaller than at the proprietary clubs, the number scratched is less. For good stakes good horses enter, and consequently there is little encouragement for owners of failures to run them at Williamstown, The appointments at the local oourse are second only to those at Flemington and under able management the day's progranmme was successfully carried out. Bonnie George, HIamburg Belle and Veronal let their supporters down heavily. In Milkabah's. absence, Bonnie George was made an odds on favorite. The George Frederick gelding was defeated easily by Calabash. The last named jumped poorly, but he showed pace between the hurdles, and may tur...

BOWLERS AT BALLARAT. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 18 April 1914

BOWLERS AT BALLARAT, SrIvENr'riEtwas the tally. Seventeen venturesome souls were found ready and willing to brave the proverbial Easter weather and the unbounded hospitality that awaited them at the Golden City. For, besides the task of bearding the Ballarat lions in their dens, there is the even greater one of braving the many kindnesses showered upon visitors by the genial l)r. Spring and his confreles, If it requires a stout heart to lace the former on their native heath, none the less is a sound digestion inviluable when encountering the attentions of the worthy doctor and the officers and ncinmhers of the respective clubs, If the gold mines of Ballarat do not now yield so many ounces to the ton as of yore, there is one mine that is still as prolific as ever-the mine of genial good fellowship, whose yields are inex haustible, and whose dividends are drawn regularly once a year by those who present their scrip annually at the Ballarat bowling greens, In addition to a full progran...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 18 April 1914

CouNCILLOu Byrno does not tool satisfied wilh the verdict of the rato payers against the proposition to build a Town Hall and municipal oflices in the most obscure corner of the Lyons street gardons. He has no word of protest to onter againt the Cindorolla liko humility of councillors in our rendering the best part of the gardens, free of charge, to the Bowling Club, or of the arrogance of some leading bowlers, who reminded them that luxurious surroundings and billiard tables and bars are all very well for bowlers, rent free, but that the old Council chamber is good enough for councillors provided they got export advice from the Bowling Club when ever the delapidated old castle is in need of repair. If the presount condi tion of the exterior of the Mechanics' Institute be a sample of vaunted knowledge of the uolf-styled exports, the best thing the Council can do is to adhere to its old ark as it stands and to imitate the philosophy of the negro in putting up with tho intrusion of th...

TOWN TOPICS. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 18 April 1914

TOWN TOPICS. N :wto uwr has come to light lately. It is beginning to assert itself in no uncer, tain fashion, In the eighties, the late MAr A. T. Clark and MAir Thomas Befit and others were largely interested in Newport and great things were ex pected from thI realisation of Hall's farm, It went ofi very well ? but the Birmingham (ctate and South Newport estate hung lire. Deposits were paid on sales that were never contemplated and the puzzled rate-coll :ctor could neither collect the rates nor trace the owners, It seenns that the hopes of the land boom period, based largely on the erection of the Newport Workshops, are now being slowly realised. But the appropriatiomn of all the land be tween I)ouglas parade and the river by the Railwry department, the lharbor Trust and one or two factories will inevitably make the other side I the line the most promising for residential and business plurposei, There is wanted another A1 T.

RACICOUR[St SUSPECTS, TWO ARRESTS MADE, W\tTNs Detectives N. Olhohn and A. M'Arthur were on duty Monday at Williamstown races, they noticed a band of four men whose actions they regarded as suspicious. The reports of the loss of a number of winning betting tickets strengthened the de tectives' suspicions. They noticed one man elbowing his way in among a crowd that was surrounding a book maker after the last race. The man had a betting ticket in his hand but Detective Olholm observed that this ticket was for a wager on Yandilla King, whereas the winning horse was Dumfries. When questioned as to what his business was with the bookmaker seeing that there was no money to be paid out on Yandilla King, the man's explanation was that he " was going to ask the bookmaker what won the race.' As Dumfries had won easily, and the numbers were up, the detective did not consider this a feasible story. The man was arrested and locked up at the City Watch House on the charge of loitering with intent...
