Patrick Leyden was charged by Cap tain Derrick, Area Officer, with having been 22 hours short of the time required of him. The P.M.: I suppose we will have to send you to Queenseliff. Defendant: Yes. The P.M.: Yes; it's a pity. You may not think much of it; but it's a great disgrace. Your mother and father have acted well towards you, I suppose, and the least you can do for them in re turn is to gratify them in this matter. We are sorry to have to disgrace you, but we will have to send you down to Queenscliff for 20 days. "Well, Barford," said the P.M., to another youth, "it looks as if you want to shirk drill. Is that so," Defendant, John Barford, who was 44 hours s...

COUNCIL MEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 4 April 1914
COUNCIL MEMS. - - - The usual fortnightly meeting of the Port Melbourne Council' was held on Tuesday, March 31st, the Mayor (Cr. A. L. Page) presiding. Cr. Russell moved a recommendation of the works committee that the wages of the men engaged in removing house refuse be increased to 9/6 per day. The fact that Footseray paid that rate was quite sufficient reason, he said, for them to do the same thing. As far as the scavengers were concerned, they were of greater use than the doctors, because while the latter cured disease the former prevented it from spreading. Cr. Crichton, in seconding, said the council was unanimous in the opinion that those men were entitled to a little more. Mayor Page had a word or two to say in support of the motion, which was carried unanimously. Cr. Smith, in reporting as represents tive on the Infectious Diseases Hospi tal, stated that he had heard that there were two cases in Port Melbourne in which the children were not sent to the hospital. lie deplore...

ELECTRIC LIGHT SPARKS. An interesting report on the question of all-night lighting of streets was pre sented at the Council meeting by Crs. Crichton and Howe on Tuesday night. The report was formed on respec tive bases of 2000 and 4000 hours' service, and dealt with the cost per annum. It was shown that the lamps in use, including 21 of the are variety, are 202, and that they'i would ive a total candle power of 63,650. The candle power, when gas was employed, was 11,000, the cost being £635 per annum. The cost of electrically lighting streets for one year .of 2000. hours was estimated at £1100:.

Motors. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 4 April 1914
Motors. Although the electric current has been available in Port- Melbourne for some time now, it is somewhat surpris ing to notice the comparatively small use which is made of it for power purposes. An electric motor is the cheapest and most efficient form of ob taining power extant, and it only costs money when it is actually being worked. An electric motor can be depended upon to start up immediately the switch is closed, and does not require the ef forts of one or more employees for some minutes at the beginning of each working period to get it under way. The Union Electric Co.. of Australia, Ltd., 01 Willian-street" M elbourne, have introduced a motor specially adapted for the Port Melbourne sys temr, which, it is claimed, possesses ad vantages of efficiency, durability and capacity for overload, that cannot be equalled by the products of other makers. The Union Co. is one of the largest suppliers of motors in Australia.

SHAKING HANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 4 April 1914
SHAKING HANDS. Shakin' hands is somethin' that Mighty few folks git down pat. Some jes' make a feeble clutch, Like the pleasure wasn't much; Others hand a paw that feels Like a bunch of fainted eels, Then there comes a brawny fist l'That'll giveo your own a twist Fit to bruise it out o' shape, It's well meant. There's no escape. There's a feller so polite That it makes you want to fight, An' there's one who seems to say, "Shake-but please be on your way. Jes' one way is right an' fit; Can't be learnt: you're born with it; Your right hand will jes' extend Like it's reachin' fur a friend, Strong but gentle, firm but kind Shakes like them is hard to find.
ELECTRIC LIGHT. Aid to Increasing Business. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 4 April 1914
ELECTRIC LIGHT. ---.o- Aid to Increasing Business. Owing to the progressive policy of the council, our main streets now effec tively compete with those of the city, which deservedly bears the reputatioe of being among the best illuminated in the world. But the enterprise of the council has not been followed by sim ilar action on the part of the store owners; and by taking advantage of the facilities which for the first time are afforded by the introduction of elec tricity into this district business can be materially improved. Wherever electricity has been intro duced in the Melbourne suburbs, it has been found that an increasing number of buyers are induced to remain in the district for their purchases. One notable example is that of Prahran, where the effective use of electric light has greatly increased the Friday night turnover of the more progressive shop owners on the main streets. The re sult of high illumination is the attrao tion of the buyer to the scene, The interiors of ...

This was made manifest on Friday night last week, when a Jumble Sale was held in aid of the Port Melbourne stall at the Druids' Gala. Women-folk were assembled in force to sample the bargains which were offered in the Supper-rgom of the Town Hall. During the day pre parations had been made for the sale by the Mayoress, Mrs. Page, and the ladies who were assisting to price the various articles. .A glance round the room on Fri day night showed that they had per formed their self-appointed task well. It was a miscellaneous col lection that was spread out for the inspection of the buyers who crowd ed the hall. Table centres-hand painted and embroidered-pieces of tapestry, curtainis and screens, served to impart a dash of colour to the as sortment of goods. Ornaments of many designs and varying value, such a...
