FAMILIARITY AND FLIPPANCY. (To the Editor of the "Standard") [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 17 January 1914
FAMILIARITY AND FLIPPANCY. (To the Editor of the "Standard") Sir,-I am at one with "Portonian? in his remarks anent the prettiness of our girls. But I think it would en hance their attractiveness if they were not so familiar, or flippant, or whatever else you care to call it, with the young men in our streets. It is apt to give one a shock to hear a Ih rrikin-looking youth hailing a well dressed, pretty girl in the streets by sl outing out her Christian name, with some flippancy added, and to hear the girl renly in the same strain. There is really no harm in the salu tation, but I am old-fashioned enough to think that it does not add to the dignity which all girls ought to strive to maintain, whether at home or in the street. To my mind it smacks of the vulgar, and I think our Port girls err to a rather decided degree in this respect. I do not like to think that the Port girl is in this plight, to use an Irish bull-that "she never opens her mouth but she puts her foot in it.'" I am,...
TENNIS CLUB CRUISE. An Enjoyable Outing. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 17 January 1914
TENNIS CLUB CRUISE. An Enjoyable Outing. The moonlight concert and cruise, held by the Presbyterian Tennis Club, on Wednesday. evening, was a great success. In the first place there was a big attendance, there was a first rate concert, and then the weather was all that could be desired. SRev. J. D. Landels, the hon. presi dent, was present, as were all the other olfic-bearers, and the company who took part in the outing were of the right sort to make the evening thoroughly enjoyable. Mr. . An derson, the secretary, deserves to be congratulated, along with the others associated with him in carrying out the details of organising the affair. Leaving the Railway Pier at 8 o'clock, the cruisers proceeded down the Bay, and then went un the river, arriving back about half-past tela o'cl'uk. The concert programme, ar ranged by Mr. J. Bruce, a well-knowa mlember of the choir. included songs by the Misses Donald, Mr. Leslie An derson and a chorus party, in addi tion to recitations by Messrs. ...
MAYOR PAGE'S APOLOGY. Another Court Incident. Justices Refuse to Sit. Mayor Plays "The Lone Hand." [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 17 January 1914
MAYOR PAGE'S APOLOGY. Another Court Incident. Justices Refuse to Sit. Mayor Plays "The Lone Hand." A critical stage has now been reached in regard to Mayor Page's apology. Cr. Russell insists on hav ing it, otherwise he will not sit on the bench with his colleague. The Mayor, on the other hand, is just as deter mined that he will not apologise-he will rather take the Court alone. That was the state of affairs that existed on Monday mornine when Cr. Russell, Mr. Testro and the Mayor all met in the Justices' Parlor. A triangular contest ensued. Mr. R. Fitzgerald (Clerk of the Court). Sergeant Nugent, Messrs. P. Ridgewav and J. Nolan (lawyers en gaged in one of the cases), a number of constables, and, of course, the prisoners to be tried, all waited while the three Justices debated the knotty point as to whether or not the Mayor would tender an apoloev. Seeing that "Their Worships" had not put in an appearance byten minutes pait ten, 'the'tJe-k '6f the Court, Mr. R. Fitzgerald, went on...
WHAT'S IN A NAME. Port's Nameless Streets. (To the Editor of the "Standard") [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 17 January 1914
WHAT'S IN A NAME. Port's Nameless Streets. (To the Editor of the "Standard") Sir,-In Port Melbourne the autho rities seem to have adopted the Shakespearean motto-"What's in a name?"-as far as the streets are concerned. A stranger who visited the district would find looking for the name of a street about as thankless a task as searching for a needle in a haystack. Scarcely a day passes that does not furnish the spectacle of a stranger entangled in the net work of our streets endeavouring to find out by a plan of continuous questioning, where exactly he is and ho.w best he can get to his destina tion. He cannot resort to the infal lible remedy when in doubt-"Ask a policeman." The Man in the Helmet is not always available for use as a street directory. Without ,guidance, the stranger finds the discovery of his street as difficult an achievement as the uninitiated find it to make their way out of the famous Hamp ton Court maze, London. And if the difficulty is great in the daytime it be...
Presbyterian Church. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 17 January 1914
Presbyterian Church. The services at the Presbyterian Church will-be at the usual times, and will occupy but one hour. At 11 o'clock forenoon the subject of the discourse will be-"Message of the Book"; and in the evening, the text will be--"Life-Why Tragedy? What Christ Says." There was not a single funeral iclaim during the last half-year in the ranks of the A.N.A. A good certi ficate for the Port, surely!
PEA RIFLE PESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 17 January 1914
PEA RIFLE PESTS. Small boys in Port Melbourne will have to confine the firing of pea rifles and air-guns within the yards of their parent's homes, or beware of the ma'a in blue. Ask any boy at Christmas time what he would have for a Xmas box, and his ideas will run in the direction of 5/ something that shoots, and in a measure he gets his way. A decent set of carpenter's tools would be far more serviceable and valuable; even appreciated more after the attraction of everything new has worn off, but for the moment of inspiration that is beside the ones tion. These air guns or pea rifles shoot in many instances double B. shot, and carry a long distance. An instance of this was evidenced in Bridge-street during the festive sea son, when a lad fired at an old man 25 or more yards ahead. The old chap grabbed at the seat of his trau sers with sufficient vigor to explain that' hie swiftness of the pellet had not been spent, whilst the urchins made off. To them it was " a good joke." But the...
South Ports v. Magpie Athletic Club. V.J.C.A.—3rd Grade (1st Round). [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 17 January 1914
South Ports v. Magpie Athletic Club. V.J.C.A.--3rd Grade (Ist Round). This match was commenced last Sat urday on the, latter's ground, at Faulk ner Park. The Magpies, winning the toss, decided to take the wicket. A poor start was made, the first wicket falling for 0, the second for 12, then three for 20 and four for 20. The innings ter minated for the small total of 60 runs, not one player reaching double figures, with the exception of "Sundries," who totalled 16 owing to the treacherous state of the wicket. The Tyrell bro thers bowled unchanged throughout the innings, Will getting the fine average of seven for 21, and Jim, three for 23. South Ports commenced their innings by sending in Crosbie and Albriecht, who put together 28 runs before the lat ter was bowled for 8. W. Tyrell fol lowed, only to see Crosbie bowled for a well-played 19.-2 for 30. Stevenson followed, and after making 3 was run out.-3 for 36. Jim. Tyrell then joined his brother, and, after making four was given out,...
REHEARSAL. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 17 January 1914
REHEARSAL. An amateur charity worker, visiting a family in the tenement district, was alarmed to see the mother dash a oup of cold water in the face of the baby she had just finished dressing. Too polite to express her amazement the visitor held her breath, expecting the air to be rent with screams. When none came, the child merely whimper ing, she said: "Dear me, I should think he'd object more than that." "Wouldn't ye now?" said the fond mother admiringly; "sure I've been practicing on him for three weeks. He wont yell when he's baptized next Sunday! He'll be used to it."
Constable Brown and Housing. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 17 January 1914
Constable Brown and Housing. Constable Brown desires to dis claim any responsibility for stories which he says have come to his ears in regard to the housing problem. He wishes it to be distinctly understood that he has not condemned any houses in Port Melbourne, as he has no authority to do so. All he did, he points out, was to give evidenec be fore the commission appointed to in quire into the housing of the poor. In doing so he pointed out the insan itary condition of a number of tene ments and stated. that the responsi bility of having such houses con demned or put into proper repair rested with the Town Council. To go further than that would be outside his jurisdiction, he states, and wishes householders to know that any re port saddling him with responsibilit, for condemning their houses is alto gether incorrect.

WHOOPING COUGH "My little boy had whooping cough very badly," says Mrs. A. Henderson, The People's Store, 47 Elgen Road, Mornington, N.Z.

Football Club's Bazaar. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 17 January 1914
Football Club's Bazaar. The bazaar held at Footscray with the object of liquidating their senior Football Club's debt, should be an ob ject lesson, and a timely one at that, to those concerned in a similar func tion with a similar object at Port Mel bourne. It is prognosticated in cer tain quarters in Port Melbourne that the bazaar arranged to take place in February will be a failure, and there certainly appears a lacking interest beyond a handful of those more im mediately concerned. We can scarce ly conceive that with a committee of workers such as is sitting behind the local effort that they will allow fail ure to be written on their reputations in this connection, because if they display a little of the enthusiasm shown in the past, they will find a solid backing up by townspeople, who are willing to assist if approached.
RECHABITES' ANNUAL SOCIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 17 January 1914
RECHABITES' ANNUAL SOCIAL. At the Temperance Hall a large number of members and visitors at tended the annual social gathering on December 38th. The lodge met at 7.30 p.m., Bro. P.

The company dispersed with "Auld Lang Syne."
OUR PEOPLE'S DISPENSARY. Its Business and Prosperity. A Record Year. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 17 January 1914
OUR PEOPLE'S DISPENSARY. Its Business and Prosperity. A Record Year. The year just closed marks a new era of prosperity in connection with the Friendly Societies' Dispensary. There are now 24 Societies, being one additional for the year, associated with the Dispensary, with an aggre gate membership -of 2,822, being an increase of 45 on the Dispensary for the year. Through economical man agement, furniture and up-keep re presented the small expenditure of £16, whilst the overdraft has dimin ished to the extent of £156; the debit now standing at £207/7/-. Proceed ing on these lines, and this should be erased altogether within a limited period. In the report presented to the Com nmittee by the chairman, Mr. W. H. Ward, at the annual meeting last week, mention is made of the fact that during the year no (.omplaint. against the Dispensary, calling for investigation by the committee, were received, and when this is considered against the dispensation of 36,710 prescriptions, it speaks for...
MOTORISTS IN BAY STREET. Can the Speedometer Lie? Danger to the Public. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 17 January 1914
MOTORISTS IN BAY STREET. Can the Speedometer Lie? Danger to the Public. The question of whether the official stop watches employed by the police or" a motorist's own speedometer ought to be believed cropped up at Thursday's court. There was no difficulty in the minds of the justices on the point. They placed their cre dence in the watches. John Chapman was charged at Port Melbourne Court to-day with having, on December 1, driven a mo tor car in Bay-street, Port Melbourne at a rate of speed dangerous to the public. A fine of 40/- was imposed. Constables Patrick Fitzgerald and James Burke, who were on duty with stop-watches, gave evidence that ac cused was driving at the rate of 26? miles an hour over the 300 yards section which they were watchinre. Arthur Hulse was also fined 40/ for a similar offence, committed on December 16 at the same place. Constables Fitzgerald and Burke stated that accused was driving at the rate of 29 miles an hour. Accused said he had a Jones's speedometer o...
NOTES ON THE PLAY. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 17 January 1914
NOTES ON THE PLAY. "Jika" Chapman, who broke his finger last match, was again unfortun ate, receiving a severe blow on the fore head, which necessitated five stitches. Mat. Paternoster batted exceptionally well for 47, included in which were 1 sixer, and 4 fours. J. Woods also batted well for 14. North's fielding was a long way below first-grade form, and wants a great deal of improving. V. Bridges and W. BiPen completely collared North's bowling, and gave a fine exhibition of batting. E. Keyhoe bowled some fine overs, and came out with the best average on the day for his side. The match will be concluded to-day on the old Brunswick football ground.

In the remaining time left for play, the 'Ways lost six wickets for 24 runs, a very poor performance. Two batsmen completely threw their wickets away.

The match will be concluded to-day, when all players are requested to meet at Fountain Inn at 2 o'clock.
ELECTRIC SPARKS. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 17 January 1914
ELECTRIC SPARKS. Geelong's gain Will be Port Melbourne's loss. Rev. H. Stanley Hollow's nomination to Christ Church, Geelong, shows that the nominators are good judges of merit. Success was writ large on the moon light cruise of the Presbyterian Tennis Club on Wednesday night. Our office punster says that the cruisers raised a "racket" when they "bawled." The "net" result was "love all." Tragedy was almost being enacted in a local back yard during the week as the result of the use-or rather, the misuse- of an airgun. While the wife of a con stable was hanging out the family wash ing, she escaped being struck by a mis directed pellet just by the narrowest of margins. Cr. Gill has given notice of motion for next meeting of the A.N.A. that the trustees be instructed. to give loans only to members of the organi sation in future. After the business at the A.N.A. meeting this week, a botwling competi tion was lheld amongst members for a prize donated by the branch. The winner was Mr. E. E...
