OUR HOUSING CONDITIONS. What Is The Council Doing? [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 18 April 1914
OUR, HOUSING CONDITIONS. What Is The Council Dolng? The Labor party is predominant in the Port Melbourne Council. It is the avowed objective of that party to secure the greatest good for the greatest number; and no true demo (rat will find fault with it in that regard, although differences of opin ion as to method will obtain from time to time, and from measure to measure. That is inevitable; but taken as a whole the party cannot be divorced from a certain humani tarianism in its aims, even though it lay itself open at the same time to the opprobrious application of the term of Socialism. But, premising so much on behalf of the organisa tion, is it not well to inquire if it may expend greater effort in striv ing to attain something more of its own apparent ideal? A notice of motion, for instance, has been tabled by Cr. Russell for consideration by the counlcil. hayinhg as its basis the desiderated elaboration of a scheme "to provid?d for a:b?etter and morie systematic inspection of ...

FOOTBALL. Op~iiing of the 1914 Season. Ports (16.8) Beat Hawthorn 9.9). There was a fine attendance on Monday to witness the opening game of the season, between the locals and the newly-admitted Hawthorn. The match for the first half was well con tested, and some good football was shown. The locals, however, owing to longer experience, outplayed the visitors in the second half; but, nevertheless, some good individual football was shown. The local sup porters were greatly disappointed at the non-appearance of the coach, but hopes are entertained that he will appear in the Footscray match. The locals surprised a number of supporters by the splendid game they played, although they had had not too much training. With the addition of a couple of big followers, and a reliable forward, the team will take a lot of beating. M'Cenville, Cook, and Campbell were a- most usefulycentre line, and Walton and Carden followed well, whilst the rovers, Treglown and Barfoot, left nothing to be desired. ...

ABANDONED. Bright and Healthy Infant. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 18 April 1914
ABANDONED. Bright and Healthy Infant. The crying of an infant in the lad ies' waiting room of the Port Mel bourne railway station attracted the attention of a young man named Her bert Carr at about 8.30 p.m. on April 11. He glanced into the room and saw a woman there and con eluded that the child was being eared for, but was merely fractious. But the crying. became so pity able a little while afterwards that he boldly entered the room and found a child about six weeks old lying on the sent, sobbing as if it at least had done nothing to deserve such cruel treatment; as indeed it hadn't. It was a sturdy looking little one, and withal intelligent. but Carr was not used to such situations. He endeavoured to pacify the child as best he might for a while, and then the thought occurred to him that the police knew how to deal with such contingencies better than he did. I-IHe accordingly went in search of a member of the orceo and eventually accosted Con stable Tope in Beech Street. The latt...

FIRE AT HARPER'S. Starch Drying Room Ablaze. A Holiday Outbreak. Good "Save" By Local Brigade. The prompt response to a call of fire and the intimate local knowledge of the Liardet Street brigade were doubtless the main factors in arrest ing the spread *of a fire that might have caused enormous damage at Messrs. R. Harper & Co.'s starch factory in Beach Street, at an early hour of Saturday morning last. The ontbreak was noticed by the night. watchmalunn in the drying room, and the alarm was given to the brigade at 4.44 a.m. Station officer J.

EFFECT OF GOOD FRIDAY'S GALE. -4--e- Ocular demonstration of the force with which thie gale raged on Good Friday niight was presented in the thoroughfares of Port Melbourne on the following morning. Bay Street was so clean and wholesome looking that one mIighlt have assumed that a whole arnimy of sweepers had been at work and zealously removed every particle of dust. The little mounds of sand that are apt to collect on the tram track and the ordure of the gutterways had been seized in the clutch of !the rushing wind and ear ried away no one knew whither. The police court came in for quite nmis chievous attention on the part of the ,ale; the pane in one of the fanlights was shattered by the flying debris aniid will doubtless be repaired in the Government's good time-which is usually a long time also.
