Ports (12-10) beat Northcote (6-13). After the hard game on Saturday Ports determined to take no risks in the match with Northcote on Monday, and there was only one alteration in the team, viz., Treglown replacing Bruce, who was unable to be present.

ELECTRIC LIGHT FAILS. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 13 June 1914
ELECTRIC LIGHT FAILS. -; - The depleted condition of our muni cipal exchequer should; surely con strain councillors to use every means in theii power to augment the .funds at their disposal in every legitimate way. And there could be no better subject for their consideration inl this regard than the potentially re nmunerative electric lighting scheme upon which it embarked some time ago. That the greater the consump tion of the municipality's current of supply the better for the financial soundness of the undertaking is axi omatic, and that the encouragement of consumpltion beyond a certain point were politic is also indisputable, for the all-sufficing reason that it would bring a profit to the coffers of the council. But the question arises as to whether our representatives are doing all within their power in this regard. That there is a hitch some where in the supervision of the works is evidenced by the breakdowns that have occurred. It is true that some of them have been purely ...

LABOR PARTY AND LOYALTY. To the Editor of the "Standard." [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 13 June 1914
LABOR PARTY AND LOYALTY. To the Editor- of the "Standard." Sir, "'. T. Riley," in your last issue, hr~ tric?d to sa': something and igno miniously failed. Would it not be well for "S.T.R." to take a little of his own prescription, viz., "not be afraid to hand out the 'Straight Goods,'" rather than de scend to a series of puerile persona titles? Nighlitmares are often the result of over-eating; "S.T.RI." (for he has a bad attack) is apparently suffering from a dose of over (undigested) reading. Let us examine some of his statements, particularly that in which he speaks of Queen Victoria as an "Effect" not a "Cause." The history of the deveiopment of the British Empire may be put thus: (a) Land dearth; (b) Increase of population; (c) Spreading out and seeking new lands; (d) As a conse quence of (c) the development of a navy for the purpose of protection of persons and'commerce. "S.T.R." must surely be aware that Britain, like every other nation, has to undergo a great developing pro c...

RAIN MAKING. An Early Probability. Its Effect On Labour. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 13 June 1914
RAIN MAKING. An Early Probability. Its Effect On Labour. The announcement that MIr J. C. Bal sillie, the Commonwealth Radio-tele graplhy' engineer, has applied for pro visional letters patent in connection with a process for rainmaking, has excited little comment of a sceptical. amture. So great have been the strides of science in the realm of pure discovery within the ken of the present generation, and so marvel Ious have been the inventions of many gifted people of quasi-scientific tmrain ing, that the expression oft employed bythe averagre man in the street that he is now "prepared for anything" may almost be marshalled as an ab solute scientific verity itself. The fact is that wonder has so rapidly been piled upon wonder that, to put it paradoxically, they have lost their wonderfulness. It is true' That jince the."~fither of electricity," BenJamin Franklin, conducted an' electric cur rent from the clouds on a stormy day by means of a kite string and stored it illn -a comImon doo...
