ELECTRIC SPARKS. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 11 April 1914
EL:.I-rZTrICe SPARKS. A. hopeful tone As to the eventual consumption Of the Port Melbourne Council's retailed supply of electricity by con sumers is. maintained by Mr. Win -wood, superviser. When questioned recently iMr. Win wood stated that he had ten rather important connections to make. and that there were "more to follow.' In view of all the circumstances there can be no doubt but that the scheme will eventually prove remu nerative to the Council. Residents will be pleased to note that the tide has turned at lat. and that the day load now exceed-s the night load. It is stated that a scheme is being matured by MIr. Winwood for auto matically switching street lights on between 5 and 7 a.m. during the win ter months. 'The idea has much to commend it; but it would mean -addi tional outlay on duplicate switching apparatus, and some people think it would be better to bide a wee until the Council can show a profit.

"It ain't that," piped back this one helplessly, as the rest of the congre gation turned to gaze suspioiously at him. "I can't get up--T'm paraly zed."
PEOPLE ARE SAYING: [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 11 April 1914
PEOPLE ARE SAYING: That Town Clerk A. V. IHeath's . holiday came at the end of a strenu Sous yehr, and That he must have had a rather severe time within the past twelve months. That considerable worry is iun avoidable to the official mind when a change to electricity is made in the lighting of a township. That Cr. Crichton's rejoinder at the last meeting of the Council to Cr. Gill was justified when he declared That electric lighting ihad not been given a fair chance in the town yet, uAnd that the committee expect to do better things, because it was only during Mareh that the day load had become equal to the night load. That half-a-crown in the poor box is too light a penalty for a Sunday "drunk," and he should be made to contribute more for the "luxury. That the movement to obtain play grounds for children is a good one. That the Council showed wisdom in lending a sympathetic ear to a recent deputation. That somerthing definite should Ibe the outcome of co-operationl with the Guild...
