Germans Not Wanted. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 26 September 1914
Germans Not Wanted. - Stevedores' laborers appear deter mined in their resolve not to work un iler Germans as foremen. An iinstance of this was shown on Monday last, when a German foreman, although a naturalised subject, was called upon by a foreman of the Stevedoring Co., to pick up a crew to work on the White Star liner, Suevic, berthed at the Railway pier. After engaging his nme1, he was infoi-med of tlieir deter mination, that consequently they could not go to work with him. Re presentations were subsequently made to the Stevedoring Association, but the foreman in question was in formed that it was the doings of the men themselves, in which the union took no part. A number of British stevedores share the opinion that the course adopted is rather hard on the naturalised Germans who have been in the Association for years, and against some of whom at least there is no ieal grievance beyond the fact that Germany and Great Britain are at war.

WITH THE NATIVES. Young Debaters Wanted. Secretary's Leckers. Fete Committee Condemned. :Tlhe attendance at the branch meeting oL the Australsi Natives' Association on Tuesday, was slightly above the average. Mr. J. Nolan (president) presided. The correspondence consisted of a notification from the metropolitan conunmmittee, stating that it was again intended to condqct debate tourna ments, and this year. there would be three sections,-A, B, and novices. En tries would close on October 9th. Cr. Gill thought the branch should take advantage of the offer. In a bi'anch of 500 members there were at least some young meni who should en ter for the novice division, which lim ited the age to 23, and debarred all professional debaters or those who had previously competed. Some time ago Port Melbourne had taken part in these debating tournamlents with a: good deal of success. , It was decided to hold over the taking of nominations until thile next meeting night, lithl October.

TOWN PLANNING. Free Illustrated Lecture To-night. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 26 September 1914
TOWN PLANNING. Free Illustrated Lecture To-night. Though pubic --interest in rational, beneficial town-planning is at last developing in Australia, this country is still a laggard. "During the past few years,:' says Mr. Charles C. Reade, "the British Garden Cities and Town-planning As sociation has been inundated with en quiries, requests for help, advice and literature from almost every civilised country. Kindred associations, fol lowing the example of Britain, have been formed in France, Germany, Poland, Belgium, Russia, Italy, Spain, the United States, Canada and lat terly, Australia. Plans for Garden City projects seeking to imitate or improve upon the Letchworth methods have been received from many countries, in cluding Japan. Trinidad, Nova Sco tia, and South America. Victoria cannot afford to shut its eyes to these facts any more than its cities can ignore the growth of untidy and insanitary conditions of housing which anybody may see for themselves in the back streets and la...

THAT EMPTY BACK SEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 26 September 1914
THAT EMPTY BACK SEAT. -- ?- __ A very small girl, beside whose chair leaned a little crutch, pressed her face against the window pane one morning and watched the man who lived next door as he backed his automobile out of the garage; she was absolutely motionless while he inspected the car, cranked up the engine, and started off. After watching him out of sight, she wiped a tear from each eye and picked up a rag doll that lay in her lap. "Now, Lily Violet Rose," said she to the doll in a voice that quavered ever so little, "you sit right up there on the table. You are a little girl what has a pain in your hip every minute. You can't go outdoors 'ceptin' some body pushes you in the go-cart; and you never was in a awe-mobile, never once. 'N' you sit up there in your room and watch me. I am a great big man; and I don't have any pain in my hip, an' I can walk all over; anr 1 got a awe-niobile and every thing. See, this chair is my awe mobile.

Presbyterian. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 26 September 1914
Presbyterian. Mr. David Uniapon, the Christian Australian aborigilal, and inventor, gave a very interesting address last Sabbath night to a large congrega tion. His nmanner of address was pleasing, at once winning the close attention of the congregation. Quot ing the late Sir Alfred Russell Wal lace re the aborigines, that they were at that stage "on the balance," he sought to emphasise the immediate need for active and organised work amongst thle 60,000 to 80,000 Austra lian aborigines throughout the con tinent. Too long had they been ne glected, from the notion that they were so low in the scale of intelli geuce that it was worthless to spend either money or effort in their inter ests; bhut it had been proven to the contrary that even in one generation the attaiuments of children in the State schools would compare favor ably with other children enjoying bet ter conditions. ?Ir. Uniapon pleaded earnestly for his countrymen to have the advantage of such opportunities. as they were e...

TRAGIC MISTAKES. RISKS OF THE INNOCENT. CRIMINAL IDENTIFICATION [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 26 September 1914
TRAGIC MISTAKES. RISKS OF THE INNDCENT. OCRIMINAL' IDENTIFICATION M•uch discussion has been taking place through the London l'Press on the mistakes that are sometimes and can be made in the identiication of criminals or persons have not only been arrested, but charged and punished for crimes some narrowly escaping the hlangman, some possibly having boen executed. Much is meade ol tne risks attending the recognition of gurlty persons by a "\Westminster solicitor" in a letter to "The Times." "T'o me," the Westminster sol:citor writes, "who, though not practising in the Criminal Courts, am accustolned to observe closely people with whom I am brought closely in contact, it has always been appatling to contemplate the powers of observation and memory shown by uneducated witnesses who have only seen an accused person, a complete stranger to them, for a few moments m a haphazard manner. Such feats of memory are utterly beyond me. How many of toe strangers I have seen to-day, and even sat i...
WAR DEPRESSION. Causes Unemployment. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 26 September 1914
WAR DEPRESSION. Causes Unemployment. The -army of wvorkless in Port Melbourne seems to be growing as the various industries feel the effects of depression in trade caused through the war. With many firms all the back work, and any other work which could be placed in hand with a pros pect of utility in the future, was completed before the dismissal of em ployees. This completed, the hands were put off temporarily in large numbers. The most severe blow to workers was experienced at the Dun lop Rubber Co.'s works, where some hundreds were stood down. At HIarman's Engineering Works some 30 men were put into temporary idle ness, and the same condition of af fairs exists in almost every manu facturing business. Fortunately, Messrs. Swallow and Ariell have re tained their employees, in fact added to the number. Stevedores' laborers have been rather busier than usual during the past three weeks, plenty of work being available, especially in the early part of the week. It is to be hoped that...

New Pier. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 26 September 1914
New Pier. The new pier at Port Melbourne will be ready for use about the end of N~ovember. Negotiations have beeln proceeding for some days between the Melbourne Harbour Trust and the Railway Department to determine what portion of. Crown land should be set apart for the purlIoses of road approaches to the pier, and the chair man of the trust (hMr. G. F. Holden) announced this week that an agree ment had been arrived at. The Lands department would p)robably agree this week to transfer the area required, and the road work would then be be gun. It was proposed to provide roads on high and low levels. The low-level road, which would be con structed first, would be an extensibn of Beach-street, and would serve the railway pier in addition to the new pier. The foreshlore from Swallow street would have to be sheet-piled, and the.first contract for tlhai work had been let to Mr. IR. O. Law at £1,317 for labour only.

ABOUT LILIES. THEIR NATIVE HAUNTS AND GARDEN REQUIREMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 26 September 1914
.ABOUT LILIES. THEIR NATIVE HAUNTS AND GARDEN REQUIREMENTS. An instructive address on the his tory and cuilture of the lilium family was given recently by a well known lily specialist. Lilies-or rather that genus of beau tiful bulbous plants called "Lilifm" said the lecturer "are admired by arr, but are not by any means, easy to groiv. I expect that we have all tried to grow from 12 to 20 different kinds, aldd have succeeded only with about a half a dozen; yet their at tractions are such t~hat we repeatedly Durchase and plant.as many as can be. procured at a reasonable price, and try different methods of treatment, each time hoping to find our trouble appreciated by the bulb, and when fail ure results, we naturally wvonder why. In my opinion 90 per cent of these failures are. due to the bulbs being grown (or at least being planted) under conditions quite unnatural to them, the remaining 10 per cent of the failures being due to the bulbs being defective when planted. \Ve must remembe...
