SUN BATHING. [Newspaper Article] — Ashburton Guardian — 26 February 1914
SUN BATHING. NEW BRIGHTON COMPLAINTS, A CLERGYMAN'S LETTER, (Per Press Association.) CHRISTOHURCH, February 25: &quot;The Rev. H. H. Mathias, vicar of New Brighton, writing in the February edition of the &quot;Brighton Church Record,&quot; makes reference to the death by drowning on January 27 of William George Morris, of Greymouth, and goes on to say:— . ' &quot;The element of danger is not the only drawback to our surf-bathing. To my' mind there is a worse one; the absence of any sense of modesty, and, I may add in some cases of decency, shown by a small section of the bathers. Surf-bathing in itself is a fine recrea-, tion, healthy for body and mind, and I see no harm in mixed bathing. The young men who batch down here are, as a whole, as well behaved and manly a lot of young fellows as one could meet anywhere, yet a few of those who bathe, both men and women, by their lack of costume and their conduct, I may almost describe it as rooting about in ...
OLD-AGE RELIEF. [Newspaper Article] — Ashburton Guardian — 26 February 1914
OLD-AGE RELIEF. QUESTIONS AT THE HOSPITAL BOARD. CHRISTCHURCH, February 26, The fact that in the list of. cases in which relief was granted by the HospitaL and Charitable Aid Board, there wem 24 casos in which the necessity for relief being granted was stated to be &quot; old age,&quot;, caused Mr J. D. Hall to put several questions at the meeting of the Board yesterday. /.Mr Hall remarked on the large number receiving. relief from the cause mentioned,, and. said that, it was reniarkablo, seeing that old ago- pensions were provided by the State. The chairman (Mr F. Horrell) said that, in some cases, the recipients had not qualified for the pension, and in others it was found necessary to supplement the pension. Mr Hall asked if it would be possible to have some information regarding these oases placed before the Board at its next meeting. The secretary said that could. be done. He citad two or three instances. In one case, a man, his pension was supplemented in order...

THE CITY. CHRISTCHURCH DAY BY DAY. During January 169 operations were performed in the dental department of the Christchurch Hospital, and—the total number of. attendances was 212. There were 43 new patients. Although the commodious Government buildings ,in •. Worcester Street have been finished and in use f oiv a considerable'period, the offices are by no means fully occupied, and many Christchurch offices of Government departments are still scattered about the city. At the Magistrate's Court yesterday morning, before Mr T. A. B. Bailey, S.M., Cla'udo Lewis pleaded not guilty to charges of riding a motor-cycle without horn or bell, without a silencer on the machine, and for riding it without a driver's certificate.

At yesterday's meeting of the Farmers' Union, a letter was received from Mr W. Moisey, stating that he- would move the following resolution regarding boy immigrants: — &quot; That this meeting of the Provincial Executive and members of the New Zealand Farmers' Union regrets the non-effect of their resolution sent to the Minister for Immigration in November last regarding boy immigrants', and respectfully requests the Government not to bring out any more farm lads without their being made fully acquainted before leaving their homes with the terms of tho arrangement they are called upon to enter into before their arrival in this Dominion.&quot; Mr Moisey was not present to move his -motion.

BANK CLERKS AND MATRIMONY. [Newspaper Article] — Ashburton Guardian — 26 February 1914
BANK CLERKS AND MATRIMONY. &quot;MORE GENEROUS INCREASES&quot; OF PAY THIS YEAR. Bank clerks, whose patrimonial prospects have hitherto ' been somewhat slender, may be able to marry a little earlier in future (says a London correspondent). They are—some of them —about to receive increases of salary on a more generous scale than usual. Most banks, it should be explained, make it a rule that a clerk must nq^, marry on a l^wer salary than £150 a year. The result, it is said, is that at the age of 30 many find they have i. reached the portals of the marriage market. Details of ■ the new annual revisions are not available at present, but ti:i authorities in several of the chief banks are not discouraging the expectation that the increments are to be bigger this year, than in the past. Although consideration of the increased cost of living is'not the ruling factor in these revisions, there appears to be little doubt that it has had its weight in the discussions of director...

The actual partners in the crime .are too prominent citizens, who do not betray the slightest outward evidence of'the part they play in the depredations of a dangerous gang of motor-boat bandits, who terrorise the inhabitants of a wealthy suburb' in which they operate.
