Bowed; dirty, and decrepit. and in '?i'riably carrying a sack across his shoulder, an old man passed along the streets of Port Melbourne, for a little over a year. Whence he came, or what his object in life, was a sub ject upon which nobody was con cerned. Nobody seemed to know his name, and of a verity nobody cared. But lie was believed to be far from the region of want, and the few who took cognisance of his existence at all curtly dismissed him from their minds with the contemptuous epithet of miser.

POOR WATER PRESSURE. Alarming Outlook in Case of Fire. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 23 May 1914
POOR WATER PRESSURE. Alarming Outlook in Case of Fire. Some discussion took place at the mheeting of the Town Council on Tues day evening in connection with a let ter from the Metropolitan Board of Works,, in which it was suggested that a better result would be obtained by replacing the existing :-in. main in Graham-street, from P'rinces-street to Clark-street, by one of 4-in. in diameter. Councillor Sinclair characterised it as a most unsatisfactory sort of reply to the council's request in the matter. If ever a fire occurred on the west side of the railway, the water supply would not be adequate to prevent the whole of that part of the town being saved. They were trying to stir the Metropolitan Board to do something to give the fire brigade a chance. Councillor Morris: These 3-in. mains have been down since 1S77, and have never been renewed. It would be a calamity if a fire occurred in that part of Port Melbourne. Couneillor Sinclair moved that the matter be referred back to'the M...
