HOLY TRINITY. House Bazaar. A House Bazaar, in aid of the Debt Extinctin Fund on Holy Trinity Church, Port Melbouijne, was held at the residence of Mrs. Edwards', Rouse-street, on Saturday, May 30. The Vicar, in his opening remarks, said the Church was grateful to those parishioners who gave up their houses for the time being for such occasions. It must always mean a sacrifice and much discomfort. They were all very grieved and disappointed that their esteemed hlion. treasurer, Mrs. Ren dall, was still too unwell to attend such a function. HTIe was only ex pressing their desire when he said he hoped she would soon be able to re s?ame the work that was so close to her heart again. In asking Mrs. Moore to declare the bazaar open, lihe said that she was widely known as one whose sympathies were with every good effort to raise and improve the people and every cause which had as its end the good of the world.

LABOR PARTY AND LOYALTY. To the Editor of the "Standard." [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 6 June 1914
LABOR PARTY AND LOYALTY. To the Editor of the "Standard." Sir,-To any member of the work ing class, who has even a smhttering of the true inwardness of "The Work ing Class Movement," a perusal of your last issue must have seemed something very like a "nightmare," or an attack of "Economic" D.T.'s We have Senator Blakey (Labor?), tell ing the children that Empire Day was instituted to honour the memory of the late Queen Victoria, who for a long period "reigned over the destinies of the Empire." Apparently lie wished to imply that the late Queen had something to do with the Progress (?) and Greatness (?) of the Empire, when, as a matter of fact, the same Progress and Great ness would have occurred even if Senator Blakey hafd. been King during the same period, because the exten sion of the British Empire, or .any other Empire, is the result of the period of "Economic Evolution" through which such Empire passes. Queen Victoria was an "Effect" (i.e., a reflection of the social state at t...

BOLT IN BAY STREET. Grocer's Horse Does Damage. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 6 June 1914
BOLT IN BAY STREET. Grocer's Horse Does Damage. Some excitement was caused by a bolthiig horse in Bay Street on the morning of Monday last. It seems that Mr. B. Ratcliffe, of the well known grocer's firm of that ilk, was about to call at the branch shop at the corner of Bay and Spring Streets, to collect the takings, and was in the act of locking the wheel when the powerful animal attached to the buggy he was driving became frigh tened at some passing object and made off. Mr. Ratcliffe clung ten aciously to the reins for a while and was dragged along for about 300 yards when he was obliged to relin quish his hold. Once his head was free the animal set off at a great pace and had just got full way on when one of the wheels of the buggy collided with a fruiterer's wagon that was drawn up some distance past the Town Hall, on the city side. The wheel was badly smashed as a re sult of tihe impact and the animal, now more alarmed than ever, plunged desperately, until with the sound of wre...
EMPIRE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 6 June 1914
EMPIRE DAY. In our report of the proceedings of Empire Day credit for the cine matograph display was unwittingly given to a local resident, whose gene rosity is not to be despised; but on the principle of "Honor to whom hIon or is due." it is only fair to say that Mr. A. Woods. one of the proprietors of a local picture show, met the tom mnittee with such reasonable terms and kindly grace that, though not. wholly a donation, the cost was 're duceed to the lowest possible limit, and credit is, therefore, due to him for his considerate action. The local residents who subscribed so willingly, necessarily, are primarily to be cre dited with the success of the cele brations. Subjoined is a balance sheet of collections and alloeations: Donations:-Collected by Correspon dent, £2; Mrs. Criebhton, £2/9/; Police Station, 11/6; Captain Derrick, £2/4/G; Mrs. J..

Her small black hat was trimmed with a posy of flowers in amber shades. A very smart seal wrap completed her toilet.

FALL OF THE BASTILLE. Views of Mayor Page. (To the Editor of the "Standard.") [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 6 June 1914
FALL OF THE BASTILLE: 1 Views of Mayor Page.. (To the Editor of the "'Standard.") Sir,--A paragraph appearing in your last issue, bearing the heading "No Bastille Commemoration," would lead some people to believe that our Council was opposed to commemorating such an eventful day as the 14th of July. No genuino Labourite could possibly raise any objection to the celebrations of the anniversary of the taking of the Bas tille, Many eminent writers have writ ten on the French Revolution, from vari ous points of view; somne even uphold the tyianny (to some extent) of Royal despotism that existed prior to the Re vyolution, and considered the people were a wild, blood-thirsty mob, but every writer had -to admit that very few lives were lost in the act of capturing the Bastille. It was not done by the peasants alone; the middle classes ren dered their assistance. (I hope those who are becoming very respectable will re member this fact). The Mob, as Thomas Carlyle termed them, - did not conf...

Simons. And by dint of great perseverance against severe odds, the scheme in all its charitable worthiness was consum mated at the Town Hall on Wednes day last.

McKie's invitation to declare the "American Tea" open for busi ness, said he had never put in an ap pearance at the hall with greater pleasure than hlie did that afternoomn For...
