The match was concluded on Monday afternoon at 4.30, and six overs sufficed to finish off the St. Kilda innings, the latter failing to reach their opponents' score by 31 runs.

Bazaar in aid of Alfred Hospital. Art Union for the Villa. Ticket No. 55045 Wins. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 11 April 1914

Bazaar in aid of Alfred Hospital. Art Union for the Yilla, Ticket No. 55045 Wins. A number of citizens assembled at the Prahran Town Hall on Wednes. day evening to witness the drawing of the art union for the villa, valued at t350. As an introductory, Mayor Willis made a speech. He thank' d the 150 ladies and gentlemen who acted on the bazaar committee. By their splendid efforts he would have over £2000 to hand over to the Alfred Hospital. (Applause). He also thanked the citizens of Prahran for their splendid support. No doubt they appreoiated the fact that the Alfred Hospi:al was their lo:al in. stitution, as out of 11,0u0 patients last year a third of them were from Prabran city. Without in any way being egotistical he could say that a most exoellent result had been achieved by the bazaar. (Applause). It was a result never before achieved by a local bazaar. If the 42000 was ever going to be exceeded he hoped that it wou'd be in Prahran, the city in which he was born. (Applause), T...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 11 April 1914

People are still wondering when the Prahran City Council is going to settle the vexed question of the future site of the Town Hall build ings. The first councillor to bring the business forward was Cr Naylor, who tabled certain resolutions. Force of circumstanoes have prevented these being dealt with in anything like a dtfinite manner. Or Naylor, therefore, was quite prepared to patiently bide his time in order to bring his resolutions forward again As the chief (if not only) Napoleon at the head of the " Battle of the Sites" movement Cr Naylor felt secure within himself that he was more likely to receive a wireless message from Mars than that anyone would supplant him. He reokoned wrongly. The pity of it is that such an erroneous impression ever crossed his mind. He is now, figuratively speaking, acting as chief mourner at his own funeral in connection with the change of site movement. No longer is he acting as captain of that ship. Who, then, is it that has arisen to overshadow Or...

CRICKET. SEMI-FINAL MATCH. ST. KILDA V. NORTH MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 11 April 1914

UBICKET. SEMI-FINAL MATCH. ST. KILDA V. NORTH MELBOURNE. The seasiders were fortunate in the above match, as whereas the Nor therners had to bat on a rain damaged wicket on the Saturday previous, they had a wicket to bat on that was greatly in favor of the batsmen. It is all in the luck of the game though. In reply to North Melbourne's score of 136, St. Kilda had lost three wickets for 19 runs. The two not out men, Souter and Ivory, carried the score to 43, when both of them lost their wickets without any addition to the score. On Zschorn and Ferguson becoming associated they soon steadily placed the issue beyond doubt, the former especially playing attrac tive cricket. With the score at 102 Zschorn lost his wicket. He had made 36, and it was an admirable Innings at a critical time. Fitzpat rick then came in and the stand of the innings was made. The batsmen played steadily till the Northerners' score was passed and then opened out, and runs came pretty freely. Fer guson made 85, an...
