DUPLICATE VOTING AT FEDERAL ELECTIONS. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 17 January 1914

DUPLICATE VOTING AT FED ERAL ELECTIONS. To iho Editor. Sir,—After the last Fedora? elections charges of duplicate voting, fraud, I corruption, etc., filled the air, and as ! the electorate of Bourke figured promin ently in the accusation, especially the sub-division of Northcote, where it was alleged over 300 instances of double voting occurred, 1 have been requested by the Northcote Branch of P.L.C. to draw attention to the finding of the Parliamentary Committee appointed by the Senate on October 3rd, 11)13. It is I thought that as much publicity as pos sible should be given to the fact that the charges of * dishonesty levelled against the electors of Bourke had been thoroughly refuted. Most clear-minded people felt that the charges were a base libel on the honour and integrity of the I people of Australia. With regard to the charges of roll-stufling, the Chief Eleetorial Oflicer (Mr. R. C. Oldham,) in his evidence, stated:—"We know that there must always bo an excess of enrolment ...

JUSTICE TO ALL. Published every Saturday Morning. SATURDAY, JANUARY, 17. A sub-committee of the Nortlicote council has been considering the best menns of facilitating the construction of private streets. Cr. Hastings, in ■ submitting their report on Monday evening, said that plans had been pre pared for £11,000 worth of streets. Seeing the way the money has come in it is elenrly impossible to carry out all this work right nway, but it was re solved to call tenders forthwith for two streets—Benconsfield parade, from the railway to St. George's road, in the westward, and Jenkins street, from St. David street to the crown of the hill, in the north ward. There is n fair amount in hand for these streets and many property-owners have promised to pay half their contribution when the work is commenced, and the balance as soon as possible afterwards. In this way it is hoped that this batch of streets will gradually be worked otF. As soon as PaMiament settles down to business the council hope...

Thornbury Theatre. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 17 January 1914

Thornbury Theatre. The programmes presented at this theatre during the week have more than satisfied the public appetite. The motion picture, dancing lessons—tango, turkey trot, etc.—were a much-appreciated novelty; whilst the comedy piece, "Zu za." shown on Wednesday night had everyone screaming with laughter. Amidst the many attractions to be screened to-night the special will be "Widow Maloney's Faith." a gripping Irish drama, and said to be the greatest Irish picture overproduced. There will also be "The Bullfight," in which the sensations of the "plaza toro" will be vividly pourtrayed.
