Trim, a well-known inspector under the Shops and Fao tories Act, appealed against an assess ment of £40 placed upon his private residence in the Avenue. Balaclava. Mr. Trim conducted his own case, and Mr. Fred. Chamberlain, town clerk, represented the council. Mr Trim, who put his case before the court very concisely, stated that he bought the property in October, 1912, at public auction for £600. It was then rated at £38. The following year the assessment was raised to £40. He then complained to the rate col lector and the town clerk. At the time he bought the house the tenant was paying 17/- per week rent. He (Mr. Trim) considered that £35 would be a fair assessment. He had done certain repairs to the house, but they could not be called improvements. There were five rooms in the house and two skillion rooms. Mr. H. M. Knox, city ...

Philharmonic Society for Prahran. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 11 April 1914

Philharmonic Society for Prahran. Good progress is being made with the work of forming a Philharmonic Society in Prahran; Meetings have been held, and thtse have been largely attended ; in fact, as to voices, there appears to be be an embarrassmtnt de riches. T'ime, however, coupled with the keen musical conception of the conductor, will quickly pick out those who will rtflect credit on what is intended to be a real high class organisation and those which will have the oppo site effect. No doubt the result will be pleasing to many and disastrous to some. A self-opinionated and budding Melba, or a Sims Reeves building up a career on similar lines, is bound to have her or his hopes shattered to the ground. But, of course, that cannot be helped. It is all for the best ! In addition to the large crowd of vocalists who are anxious to join the new Phitharmo nic, a number of prominent citizens are taking an interest in the welfare of the Society, and evidence points to it having a very suc...

Prahiran Laendinag ::. Library . :WORK IN PROGRESS. :i.u a_ wer k or ten days a free L-ridini Library should be an ac complished fact in Prahran. The Art Gallery is now no more, and carpenters are at work putting up sufficient shelving to hold between seven and ten thousand volumes Entrance to the lending branch will be from Greville street, up portion of the stairs leading to the gallery of the city hall, or what was formerly known as such. Borrowers will make their exit by the same route as they come. Thus they will have no con nection with, and will not disturb readers in the ord'nary public library. Considering the amount of oratory that has flowed during the past few years in favor of establish ing a lending library in Prahran, success should be achieved from the very jump. No one has plugged away harder for the cause than a few of the leading lights of the loca A.N.A., and more (or less) than likely the branch will celebrate the opening of the lending library with a bonfire or...
