No Title [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 14 March 1914
After going into the matter the North cote town council have resolved not to participate in the scheme for service bf motor buses between Essendon, Bruns wick, Fitzroy and Northcote. Cr. Schwaebsch made a strong plea at the council meeting on Monday that North cote at least go in for that portion of the scheme which Would connect Essen don and Northcote by a direct east and west route. He said that Brunswick was strongly in favour of it, and he thought if it were carried out it would be of very great advantage to the town of Northcote. Cr.

To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 14 March 1914
To the Editor, Sir,-In reply to " Well Wisher" advocating a public meeting of citizens for the purpose of finding some means to increase the interest in local football, I may sta'te that he is under an hallucin ation, if he thinks that the public would support the transfer of the club to the Northcote park, Probably "Well Wisher" is a stranger to the town and not aware of the conditions that proe vailed during the period that the club was playing in the park, so, for his benehfit, I will enumerate a few details,. The last year that the club was in the V,J,F,A, the committee were unable t., put a decent team into the field, with the result that they were beaten all along the line, The second junior team in the town, the Rose of Northcote F.C., made a sorry exhibition also. Then the following year the club was admitted to the V.F.A. and played for two years in the park. Their takings in most matches did not meet expendi ture. This was caused by the poor sup. port accorded the team. Th...
MIDSUMMER DAY. (GO TO BLAZES). [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 14 March 1914
MIDSUMMER DAY. (Go To BI.AZES). These flaming skies Quite scorch my eyes, They throb and ache all day; And then the wind Blows dust unkind That in my orbs will stay. Hot sun is good To fatten food, And ripe the corn for mill; But give to me A shady tree, And music of the rill. A London fog Would choke a dog, But soothe my troubled eye, Come dull and grey November day And veil this blazing sky. 1 am now doing what I have had in my mind to do for a very long time past, that is, to write and say how much I have appreciated the very excellent contributions which have appeared from time to time in .the "Leader" from the 1en of your able contributor, Will W. Rock, His poem "Wintry" in last week's issue I enjoyed reading very much, and it reminded me of another poem entitled "Midsummer Day"-the very reverse to winter-a copy of which I enclose for publication, thinking it may be of inter est to your readers at this very season able time of the year. This poem was composed in the month of Ju...

STREET OR ROAD? To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 14 March 1914
STREET OR ROAD ? To the Editor. Sir, -Adverting to your remarks in the "Leader" of the 17th January, 1911, about my letter to the Northcote coun cil against their altering the name of )arebin road to "Darebin street," I noticed that in your last issue you used the name "Dlarebin street," as it you recognise the change of name to be permanently decided upon by the coon cii, Cr, Redmond told me it had been decided to call all the thoroughfares streets, If so why confine the altera tion to Darebin road when there is St. Geor.. '"'- .', avetr'.s road and others? Atlirst Darebin road was put on the name plate at its junction with' Iigh street, and, later, Darubin street on the plate at Alexandra street, opposite my residence; thinking this to be the pain ter's mistake, I altered the word street to road. Subsequently, it was stlblstitlu ted for road at High street,' thinking probably that I might take the troublh, to aIlter that also, I feel sorry to sug gest that the council would be 'al...
"MAKING NIGHT HIDEOUS." TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 14 March 1914
"MAKING NIGHT HIDEOUS." TO THE EDITOR. Sir,-The residents of Westgarth street, from the railway station on towards Fairfield, have been long sulfer. ing to a band of young fellows, who, every Friday and Saturday night-pre sumably after the hotels are closed- march along the street, "making night hideous" by bellowing at the top of their voices, and braying out snatches of song-quite innocent of melody, and probably of morals. That they disturb the rest of young children, and the great number of tired and weary toilers, apparently does not concern them, so they weekly repent their performance without intermission. As we are only favored with a police officer, say on the occasion of a football or cricket match, or in gathering Commonwealth statis ties, we would deem it a' favor if you would, through the medium of your paper, draw the attention of the custo dians of the peace to this matter. Yours, &c., REPosE,

BAND CONTEST. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 14 March 1914
BAND CON rEST, There was the novelty in Northcote on Thursday evening of a brass band con test. The event took place at the Croxton recreation reserve. There was only a moderate attendance, due largely, no doubt, to the very threatening state of the weather about the time people would be assembling. Three bands competed, and it was the general opinion that their performances, which were of a highly enjoyable character, were of pretty even merit. This was reflected in the judge's verdict. He allotted the points as follows:- 1. Eastern District United 159 Ipoints, 2. Northcote Municipal B3and 151) points. 3. Brunswick City Band 149 points. Mr. H. liellings was the conductor of both the lirst and second bands, whilst Mr. R,. Davis wielded the baton for Brunswick City. The competition march-a bright and entertaining piece of music-was the composition of Mr. Hellings father. Granting that full publicity was given to it a band competition on a larger scale than the above would be a great ...
