"?TOO MUCH SLOBBER." Inappreciated Thanks. A letter was received by the Port Melbourne Council on Tuesday even ing, from the Municipal Employes' Association, in which the council, and especially the Mayor (Cr. A. L. Page) were thankled for the recent incre ment in the wages of the town's scav engers. Cr. Russell said he thought there was something in the letter that savoured of sharp practice. That council had carried a resolution long ago to pay union rates as far as their funds would allow them to go, and the resolution agreeing to the increase in question wais carried unanimously. He moved that a notification to this effect be forwarded to the Associa tion. Cr. Sinclair seconded. The Mayor: I am surprised that such a letter should come to the council. There is one name singled out- and that -is what I don't want. I think Cr.-Russell Was the mover of that 'motion, and Cr. Crichton the seconder. Cr. Morris: There is too much slob her about this. It is not necessary to the council. ...
NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 2 May 1914
NOTES. H. Howlett had the distinction of being the best man on the local's side. His play greatly surprised the majority of supporters. His running with the ball was good, and his kicking has iim proved considerably. The next best on the side was W. Carden, who followed in quite his best form, and his play on the half-back line left nothing to be desired. W. _Barfoot, although suffering from an abscess, took his place in the team, but was not quite up to his usual stan dard, although at times he did good work. J. Bailey showed improvement on his first game, and promises to be most useful before the season advances very far. R. Cleland, who was not too well, was not up to his usual form, and "Curley" McConville had too big a task with Briese on the wing; the latter playing a brilliant game. Sid. Anderson made& his first appear ance, but was not in form although he made a couple of smart dashes. E. Merrick and P. ,Marshall worked hard on the forward line, and the for mer added...
CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of "The Standard." [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 2 May 1914
CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of "The Standard." Dear Sir,-What has Port Mel bourhe done that it should be so ne glected at holiday time in the way of railway facilities to and from the city? T ain almost certain that there was not the slightest alteration in the time table on Monday last. and the result was confusion. Such a :scramble and rush I have nevei seen and the marvel is that no bones were broken. I ask again, What has Port Melbourne done? Is the place to be ignored because it is a working men's suburb? It is about time that we had a better show on holidays, just as the more "fashionable" suburbs have. Yours. etc., EIGHT 1HOlURS. Mrs. I)odds, President of the Rich mond Creche Society, was so over come when pleading the cause of the little children, before the Town Coun cil on Tuesday evening, that she coin pletely broke down and was unable to continue her remarks.

"THE STANDARD""OPENS A . FUND. Subscriptions' Cordially Invited. Little comment is needed in sup port. of the powerful case. made out by the Port Melbourne Creche Com mittee, in its appeal to the local coun cil on Tuesday evening for the estab lishment of a creche in our midst. One is as necessary here as at Rich mond, Colliugwood, Fitzroy, oir South Melbourne; and in view of the per sonnel of our own council it is worthy. of note that the Creche Society at Richmond finds some of its most earnest supporters in Labor council lors, who, --by the way, are in the majority theie also. Unfortunately, our own council, if not in "a chronic state of impecuniosity," has a debit balance. that is not insignificant, and immediate practical assistance in this direction is positively out of the question; albeit the Mayori(Cr. A. L. Ptage) indubitably voiced the opinion of the council as a whole when he said they recognised that the cause was. a good one. The attitude of the. Labor Party was perhap...
