Spall Tenders Reduced. "WThen the annual tehders for blue. stone spall requirements for the municipalitity were opened at the last meeting of the Town Council, it was ascertained that the only two tenderers were the same price, and that the quotation had gone up 2d. per cubic yard on the previous year. Without much consideration the Council decided to invite fresh tend ers for spalls, also carting and spreading metal, ,and the supply of brooms required. Tenders were returnable last week, and when examined the spalls were quoted at 2d, per cubic yard less, which, on the annual requirements of the town, 5000 cubic yards, means a saving of £40 '3/4. Mr. David Foster was allotted 3000o yards, and Messrs. Willis Bros. 2000 yards. In regard to the spreading of metal, tenders for this work were also lower, the price accepted being one half-penny cheaper than has previously been paid.

Stolen Crayfish. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 10 October 1914

Stolen Crayfish. A violent scene was witnessed about to o'clock last Saturday night at the corner of Bridge and Lyons streets. It appears that just before that hour two young men entered the fish shop adjoining the Chequers Hotel and priced some crayfish. Selecting one at 2/., the supposed purchaser then said " give me a bottle of mussels also." When the women attendant tunrned hier back to comply with the request the two men bolted. They were followed around the Chequers corner, and the pursuers overtook someone just around the terrace in Lyons street, but there appeared to he much speculation as to the identity of the man detained and the crayfish thief. A large crowd gathered, out siders interferred, coats were taken off and excited women shouted, creating a panic which lasted for 20 minutes or more. The crayfish was not recovered or the thief arrested.
