FISH STANDARD BY MEASUREMENT. New Method Proposed. Interest to Local Fishermen. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 24 October 1914
FISH STANDARD BY MEASURE MENT. New Method Proposed. Interest to Local Fishermen. The proposed gazettal .of a mini mum lengthl at which certain fish may legally be caught, either by rod and line or net, marks an innovation in this State. At present the. change is contem plated with regard to the following fish only:-Bream, 8in. from 5oz.; flathead, 12in. (40oz.); garfish, 9in. (1oz.); mullet, 81in. (2oz.); schnap per, 10in. (12oz.); English and other non-indigenous trout, ilin. (8oz.); whiting, ilin. (4oz.); cray fish, 11in. (9oz.). In each instance the fish is to be measured from end to end, except garfish and crayfish. For garfish the length from the end of the upper jaw to the centre of the tail is to be. taken, and for crayfish, from a spot-between the eyes to the end of the tail. The effect of the new departure will probably be to raise the minimum slightly. The most marked increase appears to be the size adopt-d for flathead,l12 inches, and will re'?il't: in:shutting :out of th...

ELECTRIC LIGHT FAILS. Community in Darkness. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 24 October 1914
ELECTRIC LIGHT FAILS. Community in Darkness. Through some disarrangement of machinery at the works of the M[el bourne City Council on Sunday night, Port Melbourne was temporarily placed in darkness. The incident happened at 10 minutes to eight o'clock, the light being revived at 8.15. At the time the picture theatres were well filled with people, whilst the streets were more than usually thronged by soldiers and persons visiting the foreshore, the attraction being the ships in Port. At the Bicycle Club and numerous private houses where the light is installed, the first indication that anything was about to happen was the gradual de scendancy of the energy's brilliancy, then suddenly it disappeared from view. Those indoors made for the streets, where it was seen the lights also had disappeared, the only ray beilng from the gas pilots under shop verandahs. At the Port picture theatre gas lights supplied tempor ary light, and the audienlce were en tertained by selections from the orche...

"UNCLE SAM." Melbourne Cup Prospects. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 24 October 1914
"UNCLE SAM." -4 Melbourne Cup Prospects. By "Sterling." Uncle Sam's win in the Caulfield Cup was immensely popular ill Port Melbourne. almost every "sport" who professed to know a good horse when he saw one racing. being with "Sam' over the Cup journey. Their judg ment was right, aind, with racing as with most things., good judgment brings cash with it. HIowever, hard the ring-men were hit over the vic tory, it is not to be compared with what they would have got had a favorite horseman been on the dual whiner's back. Thousands believed in the horse, but were without the confidence in tlhe rider, a factor which turicd their fancy to other steeds. Tuesday week, November 3rld, is Melbourne Cupl day, and Uncle Sam is already proclaimed the wilnner by ani army of supporters. There is an equal army that favors Ulva's Isle. Indeed, when hig Cup prospects are discussed, punters only seem to argue on the rival chances of these two horses, forgetting for the time that "there are otlhers." Bot...

AMONGST THE JUNIORS. NORTH PORTS v. NORTH MELBOURNE DISTRICT. (1st Grade, V.J.C.A.) This match was brought to a con clusion last Saturday at Royal Park, when, in response to North Ports total of 118, the home team finished their innings for a total of 62, or 56 behind the North Ports. North Ports second innings re sulted in-a procession to and from the wickets, the side. being out for the small score of-38, of which G. Key; koe batted solidly for 21, made without a chance. With 94 to win, the District went in for a hit, and at the call of time had succeeded in scoring 58 for the loss of two. wickets, and were thus defeated- on the first innings by 56 runs. As the North District succeeded in winning their first match easily, this should give North Ports players great encouragement in their future matches. The team will be streogh ened to-day, and should render a. good account of themselves on their own ground. NORTH PORTS. First Innings ... .. . Ii8 Second Innings. J. Cummins, c, b_B...
