  • 22 Mar 1933, BETTING CHARGES.
    William Graham Balharrie, 32, seaman, was charged before Mr. MacDougal, S.M., at the Central Police Court yesterday, with having used a shop at 103 Dolphin-street, Coogee, on March 11, for the purpose of betting. Cyril George Shortus Lavender, 37, salesman, was charged, as occupier of the premises, with having knowingly permitted them to be used for betting. Both defendants pleaded not guilty. Balharrie stated that a paper found on him, with certain figures on it, related to problems in navigation, and that names written on a pad were those of prospective guests at a farewell party which was to be given to Lavender. The magistrate described Balharrie's story as fantastic, and fined each of the defendants £5 with the alternative of 10 days' imprisonment with hard labour.9
  • 14 Jan 1950, COLOUR SCHEME WAS FATAL ?
    MELBOURNE, January, 13. The 11,000 ton liner, Niew Holland, was a cable length out- side the deep dredge channel when she and a fishing launch collided on December 18, the pilot told a Marine Court of Inquiry today. This was normal practice.
    Other than deep draught vessels, only five per cent of ships used the channel.
    Mr A. H. Mann, for the Marine Board, said that the launch was painted green, or a greenish blue, with a white cabin top.
    It might have been difficult to see in the choppy sea.
    Both the master, Captain Johannes Willem Zuyderhoudt and the Port Phillip pilot in charge, Captain William Graham Balharrie, said they could offer no explanation, apart from tins possible camouflage, for their failing to see the launch.
    They had noticed several other small boats during their trw from Port Melbourne.
    Two men lost their lives in the collision: They were David Speechley, 74, on holiday from Sydney, and Ray Comben, 50, of Victoria Street, Williamstown.
    The court adjourned until Monday.10

(Witness) Land-Note20 Feb 1878 Packenham, Febr 20th 1878
To A J Skene Esq., Surveyor General of Victoria, Melbourne
Sir, We the selectors and residents of Gembrook and Packenham County of Mornington humbly request that you will please order that a new road may be surveyed through the selection of Mr Arthur Knight in the Parish of Packenham. This road we request will be to start from the north east corner of Mr Knight's selection, thence south west distant at about five chains more or less and being west from the two chain road and thence ending at the south east corner of the said selection. This new line of road will be on the side of a very high hill and with little expense can be made into a very good road. The present one chain road is too steep that it is almost impossible for us to get either up or down it and ought never to have been surveyed in that place. Trusting that you will give this a favourable consideration.
We have the honor to be,
Sir, your most obedient servants.

  • 25 Jan 1877, Amongst the many appliances to be introduced into the new Victoria Club, in Collins-street, for the convenience of members, will be on improved system of electric communication between the various rooms and the manager's office. For this purpose an electric bell indicator, the largest ever made in the colony, has been manufactured by Messrs Hyde and Krantzcke, bellhangers, Little Collins-street west. It is constructed on the Manchester movement principle, possesses the most recent improvements, and does away with the necessity for a multiplicity of bells, only one bell being required. Each room is connected with the bell and indicator by means of separate wires, and on the face of the indicator there are 48 discs with numbers corresponding to those of the various rooms. Upon a button or key being touched in any of the apartments the bell rings, and a red spot appears in the disc on the indicator corresponding to the room where attendance is required. The keys in all the rooms may be operated on with the desired effect at the same moment. The red discs are then removed from sight and contact restored by pressing a knob, which acts on a lever frame inside the case.22

  • 26 Jul 1912, THE LATE Mrs. T. C. HYDE.
    The death on Monday morning, July 22, of Mrs. Rebecca Hyde, wife of Mr. Thomas C. Hyde, of Hopetoun parade, Box Hill, has removed another highly respected resident of the district and a colonist for nearly 40 years. Mrs. Hyde, who had reached the ripe old age of 70 years, had enjoyed comparatively good health until Wednesday of last week, when she was confined to her bed with a severe attack of influenza, so short an illness, came as a severe shock to her family and friends, and a very large number of acquaintances here and elsewhere were overcome by grief. The funeral took place on Wednesday afternoon, when the remains were interred in the Box Hill cemetery.
    The Rev. B. A. Taylor officiated at the graveside, and numerous floral tributes testified to the high esteem in which the deceased lady was held. The late Mrs. Hyde was born at Kensington, London in 1841, and on October 27, 1862 she was married to Mr. Thomas C. Hyde at Hammersmith. Thirteen years later Mr. and Mrs. Hyde came to Victoria, Mr. Hyde engaging in his business as an electrician in Richmond, where the family also resided, for 16 years. Subsequently they removed to Canterbury, Armadale and Coburg, and finally, nine years ago, they took up their residence at Hopetoun parade, Box Hill, with Mrs. Hyde's sister, Mrs. Bishop, widow of the late Edward Bishop (who was formerly proprietor of the Box Hill "Reporter"). Mr. Hyde continued his well known business as an electrician in the city until November last, when he resigned its management to one of his three sons, who with him are left to mourn the irreparable loss of an exemplary wife and mother. The eldest son is a prominent member of the Melbourne "Herald" literary staff, and the third is also engaged in the electrical business. The late Mrs. Hyde, though not an active worker, was a prominent member of the Box Hill Methodist church, and her loss in religious and charitable circles locally will be severely felt.2
