St. Kilda Baths. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 14 March 1914

St. Kilda Baths. On Wednesday, a deputation from the St. Kilda Council, consisting of the Mayor (Cr. O'Donnell), and coun cillors, waited on the Minister of Lands (Mr. Lawson), to object to Hegarty's baths being allowed to re main in their present condition. The deputation was introduced by Mr. McCutcheon, M.L.A. The Mayor asked that steps be taken to have the baths put in proper order or removed. It was necessary to have women's baths on the fore shore. In reply, the Minister said the de partment was committed to'a renewýl of the lease for new baths. The lessees complained that the delay in re-building was caused by the St. Kilda Council, which had ehtered into negotiations to purchase the baths and then abandoned the project. The deputation could rely"upon the depart ment approving only of plans for baths that would be an ornament. Cr. Hewison said that mixed bath ing at Kenny's Baths was a good deal complained of, and he asked whether the Minister would consult the coun cil befor...

Malvern Stables Proposal. DEFERRED INDEFINITELY. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 14 March 1914

Malvern Stables Proposal. DEI'FERRED INDEFINITELY. At its last meeting the Malvern Council gave further consideration to the proposal to erect and maintain its own stables. The matter was dis cussed in committee, and occupied about two hours. The scheme was originally brought forwaru by Cr. Carroll, and he, with Cr. Wilks, was prepared to accept a mouified scheme. Cr. itoger Thomson would only agree to go "the whole hog." Cr. Murray proved a strong opponent, and quoted ireely from the experience.of Prahran and other municipalities. Crs. Weller and E. J. Thompson also absolutely opposed the proposal. Cr. Holmes, who said that lie was "facing the music in August next," took the posi tion that he coild not consistently give his vote to increase expenditure, which meant increased taxation. A weekly wage of 45/- was insufficient. The Mayor (Cr. Sydney Wilson) op posed the scheme, which was ulti mately deferred indefinitely by five votes to four-Crs. Carroll, Wilks, Roger Thomson, and Dev...

Prahran Town Hall Site. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 14 March 1914

Prahran Town Hall Site. What is to be the next step rela tive to fixing the future site of the Prahran Town Hall and buildings ? At the adjourned special meeting on Monday evening next Cr Naylor is to move certain resolutions with a view to having the Muniolpal Build. ings erected on another site, for choice in Walker street. Is the council or the ratepayers to have the deciding voice ? For preference, the ratepayers, and possibly there is a maj )r.ty of the council of the same opinion. The whole question is a most important one, and even if there are certain ciuncillors who are wavering on a disinclination to cast a definite vote, th ir action perhaps is excusable under the circumstances, There is a ooncensus of oinion that a plebis:ite of the ratepayers should be taken on the subject. Should this be decided upon, it would then be the duty of councillors to educate the ratepayers by means of public mestings, &c. Proper facts and figures would have to be made available. For ...

St. Kilda and its Progress Leagues. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 14 March 1914

St. KHilda and its Progress Leagues. In St. Kilda a good deal of interest is already being displayed in the annual munioipal elections, which are still a long way off -August next. The fact of the matter Is that, the city having been cut up into four wards, all the present councillors will have to retire, and offer them selves for re-election, a contingency which, doubtless, the whole of them will put into effect, St. Kilda is the possessor of three or four Progress Leagues or Associations, and a ques tion that is troubling them is, Shall they officially bring out or put up candidates, or will they allow their respective members to take an inde pendent course ? The mattter has already been mentioned at two of the Associations, and the only effect was to almost cause a serious split among the members of the Association concerned. In reality, there would have been open eruptions or break aways if the subject had not been allowed to conveniently drop as if it were a hot potato. An inst...

CRICKET. ST. KILDA v. RICHMOND. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 14 March 1914

UhlCKET. ST. KILDA v. RICHMOND. On the first Saturday the Seasiders had scored 235 runs, and Richmond had lost one wicket for 34 runs. As a win meant a great deal to the local team, and with every prospect of a close and interesting finish, a large crowd for a cricket match attended. Contrary to expectations, the Rich mond batsmen failed badly, and they were all out for 131 runs, the only batsmen to show any form at all being Lampard and Kelso. Armstrong with four wickets for 29, and Fitzpatrick with four wickets for 48, both bowled exceedingly well for St. Kilda. On going to the wickets a second time the home team made 137 runs for the loss of four wickets, Upward making 37, Fitzpatrick 31 not out, Hotchin 22, and Lord 20. St. Kilda won by 104 runs. In their next match, St. Kilda will have "the services of Ainslie and Souter. The local committee will have a hard task in picking a team, as Woolcott and Zschorn have been batting extremely well with the second eleven. PRAHRAN v. ESSEN...

Cr Ginn and the "Octopus" Tramway Trust. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 14 March 1914

Cr Ginn and the "Octopus" Tramway Trust. On two or three occasions Cr Ginn, in the course of parforming his duties in the Prahran council on behalf of the ratepayers, has seen fit to refer to the Prahran and Malvern Tramways Trust as "this huge octopus." The latest occasion on which Cr Ginn expressed himself in this way was at the last meeting of the council. An octopui is generally conceived to bh a denizen of the sea whose tendrils are ready ever and anon to voraciously grasp anything that may happen along. That, after all, is no disgrace to the octopus. It is its natural occupa ion. Similar:y, then, in ap plying the epi:het of "octopus" to the Tramway Trust, Cr Ginn might unconsciously be paying the chair man (Mr A. Cameron) and his fellow workers one of the greatest compli ments imaginable. For isn't the Trust, by putting out lines in all directions, work ng in the true in terests of the ratepayers and those it was constituted to serve. But all this is only supposition on our pa...

Bowling. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 14 March 1914

Bowling. By BOWLBR. Saturday afternoon last saw the final games in the sectional matches for the premiership, and, needless to say, in some instances the excitement ran pretty high. The redoubtable Richmond Union came a cropper at the hands of North Fitzroy, the premiers of last year. During the past season North Fitzroy have received some drubbings, and that they should have come with a rush and downed the Richmond Union spoke well for their stout heart, while, of course, it was very disconcerting to Richmond Union. The North Fitz roy team were downed by 17, the victors putting up 113 to 96. The Melbourne club, who have their home on a valuable allotment at Wind so:, had to taste defeat again, the com bination known as Fitzroy and East Melbourne doing the trick; Melbourne were beaten by five, which, consider ing there was only one Pascoe in the team, was nothing to be ashamed of. Melbourne may have a word to say in the finals-next season, as they were not able to reach that far thi...
