100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Free hearing Electrification of the FrankstonSay lineWhat?... in doubt tests to Senior during Seniors Week

Compiled by Cameron McCullough THE original intention of the authorities was to include the line to Frankston among the first railways to be electrified. That was before the commencement of the war. During the last five years the scheme naturally hung fire, and no one wondered very much, believing that with the cessation of hostilities the long-delayed work would be proceeded with on the plans already formulated. It will come as a rude surprise to many to learn that it is now suggested to hang up the electrification of the Frankston line in favour of what is described as the outer suburban system. The Progress Associations from Mordialloc to Frankston are strongly protesting against this breach of faith, and at Seaford’s last monthly meeting a circular from the combined associations was read setting out the position and asking that delegates be appointed to attend a conference to be held at Caulfield at an early date to discuss the matter. All the shire councils interested will also send delegates. The Seaford association appointed Messrs. Hunter, McCulloch and Moffatt as its representatives. Mr. McCulloch remarked that his company would be a large user of electric power in connection with the working of the sand pits, and it is believed that many other private users could be named. Apart from any advantage the department would gain in this respect, it is to be remembered that Frankston is

quite the most important seaside line in the State, and its claim to first recognition cannot be justly overlooked. *** THE public meeting held on Wednesday evening to re-organise the Frankston Brass Band proved very successful, an encouraging feature being the large attendance of playing members. The general public was not largely represented, but the assurance was given that the towns people were solidly behind the movement, and Mrs M. R. Deane, who was the only representative of the ladies present, said she was sure that the ladies of the district could be relied on for solid support. Mrs Deane gave evidence of her own sympathy with the object by subscribing £1 1s for which she was accorded a hearty vote of thanks, carried by acclamation. Mr Mark Brody donated 10s 6d and received similar acknowledgment. Mr A. Wilcox was voted to the chair and the following, were present in addition to those already named, Messrs Blaskett, Chittenden, Johns, Clements, Petrie, Aitken, Gummes, L. Prosser, Lunn, C. Taylor, C. Lawrey, A. G. Pollock, C. Willox and W. C. Young. Mr Willox as secretary of the band produced the books and balance sheet showing the financial position 5 years ago, when it was found necessary to discontinue owing to the war. At that time there were 23 playing members, more than half of whom enlisted; the others were either too young or ineligible. The balance sheet at that period

showed a debit of £26 11s 0d while the assets included instruments and uniforms valued at £147. This asset was still available with the exception of the big drum £6 and double bass instrument £15 which had bad been sold to meet the liability referred to. A general desire had been expressed in favor of reforming the band but some difficulty had been experienced in arranging for a “bandmaster”. At last they had been fortunate, said Mr Willox, in securing the services of Mr Blaskett, who had recently settled in the district. There were plenty of playing members available and no difficulty should be experienced in making a start. The public had always supported the band freely and he felt sure would do so again. Mr D. Petrie agreed that there seemed no reason why another start should not be made and this view was unanimously adopted. The election of office-bearers resulted as follows: – President – Mr A. Wilcox, Vice-President – Mr Mark Brody, Secretary and Treasurer – Mr C. Willox, Committee – Messrs A. Aitken, W. Clements, D. Petrie, and R. Lunn. Auditors – Messrs C. Dalman and A. Tasker. It was resolved unanimously on the motion of Mr Willox seconded by Mr Aitken that Mr Blaskett be appointed band-master. Members initiation fee was fixed at 2s 6d. It was decided that members meet for practice on Wednesday nights, the first practice to take place on the 12th inst.
