WESTERN RESERVE FENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 4 April 1914
WESTERN RESERVE Representatives of the Footscray Football Club, consisting of Mr W. Liversage (chairman of comihittees), Mr T. Clark (Secretary) and Mi V. Nielsen (Treasurer) waited on the Footscray council on Monday even ing with a request for proper fencing to be placed on the north side of the playihg ground. Mr Clark said he did not know if any of the gentlemen present had been along there but if they had they could see the whole of the game without paying for it as the' fence wa?s only about 4ft. 6in, high on ac count of a lot of filling having been placed there. In fact it was so low that he had seen many take the fence in their stride. Cr Johnson, in supporting the re quest, said that some 250 feet of fencillg would he required and he would suggest erecting a 9ft. fence, Cr McDonald said he had pleas ure in supporting, subject to the opinion of the surveyor. The club deserved every consideration. Cr Shillabeer did not like offering any objection, at the same time he did not b...

BON VOYAGE. TO MR AND MRS A. J. HOWE. A popular member of the Foots scray Bowling Club, Mr A. J. Howe, leaves, accompanied by Mrs Howe, on Tuesday next on a world's tour. This fact served to bring bowlers and their lady friends to the local green on Thursday evening to wish them bon voyage. The gathering was unusual in style and character istic of the club, the ladies beguiling away the first hour or so in cheery conversation while those of the club members so inclined played bowls under the electric light. On her arrival Mrs Howe was the recipient of a pretty bouquet of dahlias, the gift of the club. The presence of the Footscray Municipal Band in the reserve adjoining served to pro vide excellent music and to give proceedings a jollier tone, and after wards refreslhments and speeches completed a function that must have convinced the guests that they leave Footscray with the best wishes of a large circle of acquaintances. The president, Mr G. E. Mayall, was in charge of the oratori...

PRINCIPLES BEFORE MEN. Footscray, Saturday, April 4, 1914. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 4 April 1914
It, is imlI ossible to disli te thie fact thlit, the municipality of I'ootscray as a wholte ihs made substantial progress in reITentllt years, due larg ely' ofl' course to Llit general Iprosperity of I.he Stat. and in some meanure Io ti hli excelllnt work donme by the representative menl of the district, Hut it is arginuable whether the progress minae is as great ia might have been. On this point opinions probably differ hut those who take the negative view of the question have considerable force behind them when they say that not only the ipubllic ien but the people of the district are woe fully lacking init tive, in i ti iv, public spirit and in enterprise. There are exceptions certainly. The I'ootscray Park may he quoted as it case in point. A few citizens have subscribed fairly liberally toward transforming this splendidly situated area into a park worthy of the nane; the local council ias recently coie forward with assist ance but i a whole citizens have re maineld iapathetic a...
TOLERATION IN RELIGION AND POLITICS. TIMELY REMARKS OF MR J. E. FENTON M.P. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 4 April 1914
TOLERATION IN RELIG. i ION AND POLIT1 &US. TIMELY REMARKCS OF MR . .E, FENTON M.P. On last Saturday evening Mr J. E. Fen ton performed the opening cecemony at a .flair hcld in aid of the Sunshine Methodist Church and in doing so made reference for the need of greater toleration in the world of religion and politics. Mr Fenton said he wab glad to hear that a very tolerant spirit prevailed amongst all denominations at Sunshine. This was as it should be among Christian workers. He could give many illustrations where Cat holics had assisted.. Protestants and vice versa and he saw'no reason why they should not all co-operpte i;b many direct ions for the material and spiritual benefit of mankind. (applause) He was sorry to say, though, that he did not think the spirit ef tolerence was exorcised to-day so much as in years gone by. John Wesley, who founded their church ,imid weavers and sinners, was so wide in his charity and Ideep in Christian piety that he said ' All the world is ...
NATURE STUDY. TRIP TO BURNLEY. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 4 April 1914
NAIURE STUY,7. TRIP TO BURNLEY. The Footscray branch of the Workers' I Educational Association journeyed to Burnley on Saturday last to undertake a geological excursion under the leader ship of Dr Pritchard, D.Sc. On arrival the party moved towards the Yai'ra the doctor pointing out the general forma tion of the locality on route, drawing particular attention to the work of de nudation and disposition constanly go ing on along the river banks. Some quarries in the vicinity provided mate rial for an hour's interesting observa tion. - Some idea of the depth of the lava flow which had so effaced the ori ginal river at that point was also gained. 'The doctor taxed the imagination of his hearers wvhen he remarked what tre mendous changes must have taken place in the tolpography of the locality to have allowed that river led once to have been above the Ilevel of the sea. After further information had been elicited the party moved off to a cutting on the railway line in the vicinity of Gar...
YARRAVILLE FOOTBALL CLUB. ANNUAL MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 4 April 1914
YAIARRVILLE FOOTBLL CLUB. ANNUAL MEETING. Despite years of sterling play and notable success on the playing field the Yarraville Football Club appears to have fallen on bad times; that is if the evidence afforded by the annual meet ing on Tuesday evening is to be taken as an indication. The club found that in these days of professionalism the Sfinancial strain of conducting even a ":'unior team successfully was great, and it is probably due to the fact that the club incurred fairly substantial liabilit ies last season that many old familiar faces were missing at the meeting. There were others there staunch and true but the tone of the gathering gen erally was depressing, the prospects held out anything but bright. The balance-sheet presented showed that the receipts last season totalled £68, due to a great extent to the fall ing off of donations and gate money, and the expenditure £106 odd, leav ing a debit balance of £37/12/3. . A discussion on ways and means followed and eventuall...
NOXIOUS TRADES BYE-LAW. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 4 April 1914
NOXIOUS TRADES BYE-I'LA iV. Led by Mr James Cuming, Mr \Vischer and Mrl V. Stooke, reprc sentatives of the noxious trades manufacturers met at the Footscray council chambers last Monday even ing and had an informal chat regard ing the ultimatum issued by the Board of -Health, that the local coun cil must firame a bye-law to cover the ramifications of the various trades in the district, which it is sought to bring under one heading. Mr \Vischer stated that tihe mlanu lacturnrs had ,met :;everal? times :ard discussedtl the question before them. Regarding Bye-Lawv 35, which had been adopted by the Shire of Moor abbin, it was quite impossible to make it applicable to Footscray. Moorabbin was a residential and farming locality. Some of the busi nesses in Footscray had been estab lished 40 years, and if such a bye law as that adopted by Moorabbin, came into operation it would mean the closing down of all the so-called noxious tiades industries in the dis trict. It was very unfair that whi...

The time occupied in the dual process being &g minutes. Temporary buffers are being at tached to the bridge to facilitate the operation.

BARKLY STREET EXTENSION. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 4 April 1914
B?4R?LY STREET EXTEN SION. At Monday's council meeting Cr Shillabeer said he took exception to an item on the notice paper--C4oo for extension of Barklly street. Were he a selfish individual he would ad vocate it as it would improve his property up there. The road was passable and plenty of other streets required attention more than Barkly street. He had been twitted some time ago on account of money being spent in Geelong road. It was monstrous to vote a sum like that or even to bring it forward. Cr Johnson-It's all bluff. The motion that the work be carried out was endorsed. Cr Shil labeer against. Cr Johnson-Cr Shillabeer knew it would go through, otherwise he would not have opposed it. SWING BRIDGE.

In expectation of an early dissolution of the Federal Parliament and an elec tion to follow, political parties are be coming active and already a desultory campaign has begun. On Monday evening a Labor rally was held at Sun shine at which Mlr D. Blair presided and Senator Findley and MIr J. E. Fen ton delivered addresses.

Fenton, who during the course of his address, said : The linancial problem is a big one in Australia as in all countries, and if members of Parliament can case the people's burdens their best energies should be exercised in that direction.
