That Town Hall Site Question Again. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 21 March 1914
That Town Hall Site Question Again. Quite ubiquitous is becoming lhe question in Prahran as to whether the Town Hall should or should not be built on another site. In the Council it has come up so often that it is being looked upon as part of the usual fortnightly business. Cr Naylor, who is beginning to be looked upon as a sort of self. immolated victim to the cause of a change of site to Walker street, made an heroic attempt to reach finality in the matter at the council meeting on Monday evening, but again he was doomed to disappoint ment. Still he is not discouraged, not by any means. The set backs which Cr Naylor has received in the council in his advocacy of his pet theme would have almost proved insuffirably provoking to others of a less ardent and spirited nature. As an actual faot Cr Naylor has not retrogressed with his change of site proposal; he has made distinct pro. gress, and, unassuming though he is, he should feel rightly proud, Throughout the whole city he has arous...

Free Lending Library for Prahran. Cr Ginn Challenges the Expenditure. Council's Action Upheld. §At the meeting of the Prahran City Council on Monday evening last, Cr. Ginn moved as follows " That the resolution of this Council of the 16th. day of February, 914, authorising the establishment of a Free Lending Library, and vot ing the sum of £300Jfor the-purpose, be and is lhereby res:inded." Cr Ginn said the council in voting the £300 had adopted a wrong pro cedure, seeing that there were no funds for the library, the vote being overdrawn already to the extent of £500. Also, the usual custom was, in dealing with matters of the kind involving so much expenditure. to refer them to the estimates. Other wise he was in lavor of the Free Lending Library. Cr Flintoft seconded the motion. Cr Scott claimed that the council had adopted the r'ght course. For years " we" had promised the citi zens a lending library. Cr Ginn-Who is " we " ?
