THE OPENING OF PICNIC RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Elsternwick Leader and District Record — 3 September 1887

THE OPENING OF PICNIC RAILWAY. THUBSDAY was another Red-letter day for the Shire of Moorabbin, and, indeed for the whole district of Brighton, for on it the much-needed line of rail from Brighton Beach to Picnic Point was opened, with much enthusiasm and abundant feasting. The bright particular star of the social firmaments on Thursday, the hero of the occasion, was the Hon. T. Bent. To his persistent and powerful ad vocacy this line is due, as also are many other works of local importance -of course the' President of the Shire came in for the lion's 'shire of lauda tory remarks the -several speakers. while the Government got a few knocks from some quarters and words of praise from others. The import ance of the occasion did not lie in the peeches, howverer, but in the solid improvement to the district afforded lbrthe'new rnilw\af. It-is not at,?l1 'likely that many years. will slip away 'ere " the line " skirts the whole of the beach frontage as far downi an 31ordialloc. In the mea...

JUSTICE TO ALL. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 3,1887. THE.DAKIN EPISODE. Tins .has called forth a deluge of printers' ink, and quite a flood of forensic eloqueice, and. possibly the Iast ihas not: yet -been heard of the strangoe proceeding. We can say, fromi personal knowledge,' that' the racket Dalkii kicked up with hammer and saiv' as deafening, and to those who had business at stake, or were conducting it, in the Court was simply intolerable. This abominable racket too was in full swing while an unfortunate prisoner stood in the 'dock- on trial for murder! The pa tience of the Chief Justice seemed to rival that of Job ; and no one could imagine from the placid countenance of His'Honor; amidst thls uproar that wais making the administration of justice a farce, that he would in a few daysi put down his judicial foot in a way that would fairly startle the whole colony. Mr. Dakin may have made no more noise than was neces sary to carry on his " lawful calling;" but to an outsider it seemed as ...

OPENING OF THE PICNIC POINT RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Elsternwick Leader and District Record — 3 September 1887

OPENING OF THE PICNIC POINT RAILWAY. THE opening ceremonial of the line of railway from Brighton Beach to Picnic Point was celebrated with great eclat at Sandringham (the terminus of the line) last Thursday. A special train conveyed the visitors from Melbourne and all inter- mediate stations. On its arrival and dis- charging the passengers, the school chil-   dren of the district, who were ranged along the platform and gave hearty cheers to the visitors, entered the carriages and were treated with a free ride back to the Brighton Beach station and back. Afterwards they were feted and feasted, besides being en- tertained and amused with sports and games generally indulged in by juveniles. The new line leaves Brighton behind the     station and is 2 miles 18 chains in length. The contract for the construction of the line has been in the hands of Messrs Gra- ham and Wadick, the amount of their ten- der being £15,307 17s 5d. The line was started on...

Poetry. Would we Return? Would we return. [Newspaper Article] — The Elsternwick Leader and District Record — 10 September 1887

H r.,i.; ,leoetrp 70ould : We ltetta-er ? Would we return It once the gates which close upon the past, Were opened wide for us, and if the dear R.smembered pathway stretched before us clear To load us back to youth's lost land at last, Whereon lifebs Apiil shadows lightly cast Recalled the old sweet days of childish fear With all their faded hopes and brought ' anear The far off streams in which our skies were lassed ? D;d these lo t dreams which wake the soul's sad yearning, But live once more and waited our return ing, Would we return ? Would we return If love's enchantment held the heart no more And we had come to count the wild sweet pain, The fond distress the lavish tears-but vain ; Had cooled the heart's hot wounds amidst the roar Of mountain gales, or, on some alien shore, Worn out the soul's long anguish and had slain : At list the dragon of despair-if then the . train 01 vanished years came back, and as of yore, The same voice called, and with soft eyes be guilinog.
