CONSUMPTIVE'S WIFE'S PLIGHT. Unable to Rent a House. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 2 May 1914
C'OOhSU MPTTVE/'S WIFE'S- PLIGHT. Unable to Rent a HouSe. To be the wife of a consumptive to have brought sons to the age of helpfulness, and to have been turned out of her home because the hus band has been remnoved to a sanatoriumn, is a sufficiently pitiable plight And yet; statements made at the Council meeting on Tuesday were to the effect that such had befallen a woman who has resided in Port Melbourne for the past six years and always paid her rent regularly; or-as the story goes--paid it; re gularly until the agent refused to accept it in order that he might:ob tain. the legal right to eject. It seems that, this was obtained and thit: the woman was turned out of the house with her belongings, and that she has since been succoutred by neighbours. It is further stated that she has since been refused the renting of any place.r in Port Melbourne, in consequence of the nature of her husband's illness. There may or may not be absolute. verity in this last statement; it is warmly v...

IMPUDENT THEFT OF BICYCLE. Stolen From Doorway. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 2 May 1914
IMPUDENT THEFT OF BICYCLE. Stolen From Doorway. An impudent theft of a bicycle was committed on Sunday last. It seems that a young fellow named Frank Cox. grocer's assistant, called at Mr. Holland's shop near the reserve, in Montague-street, and left the ma chine standing at the 'doorway. He had placed it so that the rear wheel could be seen laterally as he walked along the passageway that separates the two shops there. He had not been long on the premises when he heard the door slam and attributed it to a sudden gust of wind. This impres sion was speedily removed, however, for on proceeding to the doorway a little later he found that the bicycle had been removed. The loss falls severely on young Cox. for the ma chine was practically new. He had bought it on terms from Mr. W. Loach about six weeks ago for £13 10/-, and the sum of £12, or. there abouts, is still owing on it. It was a black bicycle of the "Native" pat tern. The police are making in quiries.
AROUND THE CHURCHES. Duty of Protestants. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 2 May 1914
AROUND THE CHURCHES. Duty of Protestants. A very large congregation, includ ing the local members of the L.O.L.; attended the Presbyterian Church last Sunday night week, when the Rev. J. D. Landells preached a sermon on the subject of "The Duty of Protest ants in the Present Crisis." The preacher, in a stirring and pungent manner, urged every person who bore the name of Protestant to do at least three things:--1, Protest; 2, Pray; 3, Play the Game. By an array of facts of a reliable kind he urged that, knowing as they too well Imew, the attitude of the -Romish Church in the past as well as the present, there was but little guaran tee of anything better for the future in the matter of policy towards Pro testants. This was not now a ques tion of politics, since by the attitude of certain organisations and indivi duals the mask had been torn away, revealing the force in operation. There was "iio -business" at the local court on Saturday, Monday, or Tuesday last. Not even a holiday "dru...

BAPTIST ANNIVERSARY. Hearty Celebrations. On Sunday Aprl! 19th,. anniver sary services were held in connec tion with the Baptist Church. The celebration was a complete sucqess. Favored by fine weather the attend ances were large. Bright singing and preaching of the first order were its chief characteristics. The visit ing brethren gave of their best, and those who listened to addresses of Rev. A. R. Thompson and Rev. G. P. Rees (former pastor) will not soon forget their timely messages. The Rev. G. P. Rees, speaking at the evoning service, based his re marks on Hebrews 2: 3, the subject being, "Drifting away from the bea ten track," and in the course of his remarks he pointed out why the Sab bath was neglected and the sanctu ary forgotten, in this nmterialistic age in which he said we were living, when the pleasures of life, business, and all that do not count in the sight of heaven, were uppermost in the minds of the vast majority of people. SOn the Wediesday evening follow ing, Ap...

ELECTRIC SPARKS. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 2 May 1914
ELECTRIC SPARKS. Defeated. But not disgraced. Port Melbourne's first reverse od the season. Victors a strong team, keen in at tack and solid in defence. Our boys were beaten in the latter attribute. The ball was taken forward time and again, but the backs of last year's premier team knew too much. Merritt was again among the best and has justified his inclusion in every match. The electric supply to the munici pality was cut off between suurise and sunset on Sunday last, in conse cquence of the City Council effecting .alterations to the principal main. The town council has been noti fied that the claim for £400 in the matter of the proposed extension of the tramway in Ingles Street has been forwarded to the Treasurer for payment. -Cr..

Baptist F.C. In the opening of the season last Saturday the team shaped very well against Carlton Methodists. Both teams were very evenly matclied, each having successful periods of the play-, and each team kicking four goals. Tone final result seems to be in doubt owing to the goal umpires scores differing.
