Record Swimming Carnival in Rich mond Baths This Afternoon-Big Sand Bright Programme Should be Full of Interest. Richmond will hold its biggest swimming carnival this afternoon. The Royal Life Saving Society has arranged an elaborate programme for its big demonstration in the municipal baths, Gleadell-street, rear Richmond Town Hall. Formerly this display and carnival has been held in the Melbourne City Baths, but the work of the Richmond Ladies' Life Saving Club, allied to, the fact that every school child in this city who is phy sically fit must learn to swim, has lifted Richmond into the very fore front as a swimming centre. Rich mond residents should not miss the opportunity of seeing the value of the work that has been accomplished, and the variety of the programme ensures a most interesting, instfuctive and en tertaining afternoon.

RICHMOND COUNCIL EMPLOYES' PICNIC. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 10 March 1917
RICHMOND COUNCIL EMPLOYES' PICNIC. (To the Editor.) Sir,-Your correspondent, "Over the Odds," by his letter shows "mal ice aforethought" by. first prating his generosity at not casting a stone to jeopardise the picnic before it was held and then letting fly two or three missiles, not caring whose head they might strike. In fact, he is as wide of the mark as the individual who, jealous of the other fellow's success, would "kick his dog." Doesn't he know that picnic day is the result of a con ference of municipalities and em ployes, and that men working on that day are entitled to double pay? So the application to the council on be half of its employes for a holiday was only a matter of courtesy. So much for stone number one and the day's pay. His second shot about killing the schools' and citizens' picnic is also wide of the mark. If he will carry his memory back just one year, he will find that this function was dropped on account of the war, and as the council employes had no know ...
Dairyman Fined £20—Solicitor Says Broken Seal Renders Sample Illegal. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 10 March 1917
Dairyman Fined £20-Solicitor Says Broken Seal Renders Sample Illegal. With three prior convictions, Arthur Newbould, dairyman, 551 Victoria-st., Abbotsford, when he came before the court on Monday on a charge of sell ing pdulterated milk, received short shrift. He was fined £20 with £9 9/ costs. A stay of proceedings for 14 dclays was allowed. The grounds of the appeal, if any, are rather peculiar. When the case came before the court on Monday week, Mr. G. F. A. Jones (for defend ant) asked that the third sealed sample should be submitted to an umpire analyst. It was stated, however, that Inspector T. Smith's third sample had been broken while in cold storage. Mr. S. Goldsmith, P.M., gave instruc tions that failing the production by defendant of his sample, that already analysed and the seal of which had of course been broken, should be sub mitted. Defendant did not produce his bottle and this was done. The um. pire analyst's report showed that the sample contained only 2.68 per cen...
Single Theatre Policy Puts Many Features in National Bill—Pauline Frederick, Fanny Ward, Charles Ray and Chester Conklin Amongst Next Week's Stars. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 10 March 1917
Single Theatre Policy Puts Many SFeatures in National Bill-Pauline IFrederick, Fanny Ward, Charles Ray and Chester Conklin Amongst SNext Week's Stars. Concentration of Mr. T. M. Hodges' interest upon the National Theatre, on the crest of the Bridge-road hill, is producing notable programmes. Mon day's bill contains three fine stars. A Lasky feature, For the Defence, must be given pride of place. It is one of. the most powerful and effective screen plays seen for a long time. Fanny Ward provides proof of her versatility by scoring a success as a little French girl. She is a stranger in a strange land, but, although her first steps in America find her in trouble she soon gets out of it again and also saves her lover from the hangman's rope on a false charge of murder. The plot is notably strong, and it would be a pity to spoil a good thing by setting it down here.. It is a picture which is too good to miss. The Honorable Algy, a big Triangle star, is the second feature. Charles Ray, M...

Hotelkeepers Do Not Continue Fight for Reduced Valuations-Picture Business Affected by the War. Claiming that early closing had had an injurious effect upon their busi ness, 25 hotelkeepers recently ap proached the Richmond Council with a view to securing a reduction in their rates. They waited upon the finance committee, and five who pro vided satisfactory proof - had their valuations reduced by a total of £155. The others were informed that they had their remedy at the local court. When the case came on on Monday week Mr. T. Fogarty was present to represent the hotelkeepers. Owing to pressure of business, however, the cases were adjourned. They were taken- on Monday, but there was no appearance for the hotelkeepers, and the valuations were accordingly con firmed. Rose Lewis, owner of the Richmond Theatre, put in a claim to have the valuation reduced. Shq said that the war had had a bad effect on the pic ture business, and when the lease ex pired in February she had been com pelled...

New Works in Richmond Certain to be Permitted—Mr. Squire Kennon Gives Council Complete Assurances. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 10 March 1917
New Works in Richmond Certain to be Permitted-Mr. Squire Kennon Gives Council Complete Assurances. Mr. Squire Kennon attended at the meeting of the works committee of the council on Monday night and out lined the proposals of his firm In re gard to the treatment of skins at pre mises to be erected near the firm's present large works at River-street. A report in the "Argus" gave a clear .statement of the position, but, not withstanding that fact, the "Age" thought it necessary, in accord with policy, to whip up an attack on the proposed works. It was alleged that they would pollute the Yarra. and cause other nuisances. Mr. Kennon assured the council that under the process to be adopted by his firm any smells would be reduced to a minimum and there would not be any acids, fluids or anything else discharged into the Yarra or sewers. Despite the "Age" attack, it is not likely that the council will swerve in their unanimous feeling in favor of permission being granted, as was apparent at...

War Bonds Will Beat the Enemy. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 10 March 1917
War Bonds Will Beat the Enemy. We cannot all fight, but we can all help to pay the men who are fighting our battles. That is a duty which should be regarded as sacred by every Australian over the age of 16 years. If a member of a family is in dis tress, his kith and kin, if they are decent, self-respecting people, believe it to be their duty to help quickly and effectively. But how much more is owed to the member of the family who, taking up the quarrel of the whole, risks life to keep an enemy from the door. To give assistance is then a vital obligation transcending all others. Probably for many weary months to come the Australians at the front will be fighting to keep the ruthless enemy from his objective which is to ruin the British family. Those who cannot go to the front to join in the Titanic struggle can place arms in the hands of their fel low-countrymen by purchasing War Bonds at £10 each. It cannot too often be explained that the purchaser of two bonds pays for the equipme...

Bowls-Richmond Union C. Team v. Coburg. Played last Saturday on a "ploughed field" at Coburg. A finely contested game resulted in the success of the Richmond Union by 23 points.
