BICYCLE STEALING. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 16 May 1914
BICYCLE STEALING. Bicycle stealing is becoming too coommon an offence altogether, and it would seem as if the only effective 'ir:.e would be a sharp term .oft im-. prisonment whenever 'the perpetrator iscaught-just as garrotting was put down in Sydney. There is always a in?uber of people ready to indulge in sentimental observations when a judge in his experience imposes what he, regarlds as condign punishment; but it is as well for such to realise that the aim is both subjective and objective; the delinquent is removed from temptation for a period and is giV'en "time" to reflect upon the error of his ways, his duty to' the State, ctL., and his incarcerationi may be assumed to have a deterrent effect upon others with a weakness for other people's property. But the bicycle thief, per se, is a perfect nuisance in a community, and his de predations are, unfortunately, only rendered the safer by lack of proper supervision as regards the so-called bicycle factory, which is not infre quent...

THE NEW PIER. To Be Extended by 650 Feet. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 16 May 1914
THE NEW PIER. To Be Extended by 650 Feet. The new pier is rapidly approach i?p c6mpl(ol nas r"eards the -first. stagc' of 1;250 feet, which was be ,gun about two years ago. It should be finished within a month or so, and will prove a splendid structure and a credit to the State. The timber em ployed has been mostly of jarrah, which, in the opinion of many crafts men, is about the most enduring in Australia. The planks for the most part are set lengthwise so that the pedestrian proceeds with the grain. and not against it as is generally the case; and the trains will be run along a permanent way below the level of passenger traffic. - The span that has now been practically completed does not look its length on ac count of the noble breadth of the pier, which is said to measure consider ably over 100 feet. The approaching railway line has been more than half completed, and a number of house holders in the way of the construc tion of goods sheds have received notice to quit before the e...

Noblesse Oblige. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 16 May 1914
Noblesse Oblige. Some good-liumnoured persifiagQ I that appeared in paragraphical form in this journal last week-was made the subject of an attack on "The Standard" by the Mayor (Cr. A. L.. Page) at the meeting of the local blanch of the Political Labor Coun cil, on Monday evening. We are sorry for the Mayor's own sake that he should have chosen to magnify a matter of so essentially trifling a character; it was surely beneath the ?Mayoral dignity of itself. But apart firom this aspect of the case, Cr. Page, however relatively brief his tenure of public life in Port Mel bourne may have been, should have kniown that public men are alrays liable to be crliticised. Happily the passing criticism of Cr. Page, as a public man, that lay beneath the paragraph to which lie took excep tion, was in the kindly, well-disposed strain that is in consonance with the policy of this.-journal; as Cr. Page journeys farther afield he will doubt less come into contact with the more direct and mordant type...

Children's Playgrounds. The Mayor (Cr. A. L. Page) and Messrs. Sa?gster, IM.L.A., and Heath, town clerk, interviewed the Minister of Lands (M?r.-Lawson) on Wednes day morning, with reference to a re quest recently formulated by a depu tation to the council for the establish ment of a local playground for child ren. The Minister said the matter had been brought before the Cabinet and that it had been decided not to grant the land on the Lagoon side, between Beanch-streeet and the Ed wards' Park reserve, at present. It was thought, that the council shoudld start by making use of Edwards' Park for playgrounds; while if it were found necessary later on to have a larger area the matter would receive further consideration. The .Mayor, in reply, said the Port Melbourne council wanted the North end for playgrounds, as it would be more enetral and more suitable. He also pointed out that the council had agreed to borrow money for the im provemient of Edwards' Park as a park. - The Minister th...
