ROTUNDA AT YARRAVILLE [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 9 May 1914
ROTUNDA AT YARRAVILLE The Yarraville Citizens' Band is an institution that has made rapid progress. Its members too show a praiseworthy inclination to appear in public so that the public may have the benefit of the music they are capable of providing. But for them a public performance has little joy and much that is exasperating owing to the fact that they have no rotunda in which they might play. An ap pearance in the Yarraville or Simp. son street gardens involves forming a ring in the midst of the listening crowd with the result that the ir repressible boy and the crowd gen erally hem them in; jostle them about and sometimes damage their instruments. It is usually a case of " those be hind cried forward and those in front cried back " and it is not to be won dered at that the soloist who,'in the middle of an artistic cadenza, re ceives a bump that damages his lip and shatters the musical effect, be comes a strong advocate of an effort to secure a band stand. Therefore it has been...

WINTER TIME TABLE. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 9 May 1914
TVINTER TIME TABLE. The winter lime table came into ope ration yesterday week and contains many alterations on the Sunshine line, though few on the Williamstown route. The moat serious change for business men is the alteration of the train on the West Footacray line from 9.26 a.n. to 9.40 a.m. This train was very useful for Footacrayites and being cut out leaves a lbrealk betwoen 0.5 and 0.86 during which passengers cannot reach Mel bourne.' Several connecting trains leave Melbourne for other suburbs at 9.45 and to catch these Footscray passengers have to travel by the D.5, nivolving a 25 minutes' wait at Flinders street. As a train leaves F'ootscray at 8.58, the 0.5 is usually practically empty and the council would do good workc if it could persuade the department to alter the U.5 to 9.20 making it thereby a conven ient train for hundreds of passengers where at prmsent it servos no useful purpose at all. The new lime table ap pears in itnother coliiimin.

A PLEA FOR ENTERPRISE. To the Editor of THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 9 May 1914
A PLEA FOR ENTER PRISE. To the Editor of THE ADVERTISER. Sir,-I have read with more than passing interest the correspondence under the above heading and having been born in the city and watched its prdgress for over thirty years I am more than ordinarily interested. In the early days the trouble was want of population, which want to a very large .extent has been fulfilled. But why stop i The march of progress and the consequent increase of population large ly brought about by the rapid advance in the manufacturing concerns in our midst calls for still greater things to be done. Schemes that would have been considered foolhardy as recently as ten years ago could now be undertaken with a confidence that in itself would be an assurance of success. Very often the boldness or apparent boldness of an undertaking is the keynote of its ulti mate realisation. But no commercial enterprise was ever properly successful with unsuitable men at its head, or with incorrect modes of working; what ap...
