  • 5 Jan 1934, EXPLOSION IN FACTORY Workman Seriously Injured
    Multiple lacerations and burns to the face were suffered by Abraham Gillies, aged 44 years, Hotham street, East Malvern, when an explosion occurred in the vulcanising room of the Kelso Trading Supply Pty Ltd sheet-metal workers corner of Little Bourke street and Guest lane yesterday morning.
    It is believed that the explosion was caused by the accidental combination of certain chemicals used in the making of tyre-patching materials Gillies was engaged in mixing chemicals when the explosion occurred. Pieces of metal severely lacerated Gillies' body. Other workmen who were in the room escaped injury.
    Although the explosion was heard more than 100 yards away the workroom was not damaged. Gillies was admitted to the Melbourne Hospital10

  • 18 Jul 1866, REVISION COURTS. HEIDELBERG.
    The revision court sat on Monday-present: Mr. Panton, P.M., and Dr. A. E. Macdonald. ... In the Heidelberg district, the names of four rate-payers deceased were struck off, and James Robert Hornby claimed to have his name inserted as occupier, under Mary Jane Porter [sic], of premises known as Darebin Lodge, Alphington. Mr. Durham, the clerk of the Heidelberg Board, said he could have no objection to the insertion of the name, but considered it his duty to call the attention of the court to the fact that Mrs. Parker was assessed to, and had paid the rates for, the premises Mr. Hornby claimed to vote for, and that Mrs. Parker's name was on the ratepayers' list now under revision, and had not been objected to. Now, if the court placed Mr. Hornby's name on the list, they could not take Mrs. Parker's name off, because it had not been objected to. Thus there would be two names on the list for the same property. If Mr. Hornby claimed to have his name inserted as a joint owner with Mrs. Parker, there would be no difficulty, as the 42nd section provides for joint ownership and joint occupancy ; but he claimed as occupier under Mary Jane Parker, and he (the clerk) submitted that some evidence should be given, as provided under the 64th section, to satisfy the Court as to the validity of Mr. Hornby's claim. That this was the proper course was evident from the wording of the 55th section :-" The Court shall insert in the lists under revision the name of every person who shall have so claimed, and be proved to the satisfaction of the Court to be entitled to be inserted on the roll," &c. The Bench, after a long consultation, ordered James Robert Hornby to be called, but he did not appear. The Bench said that it not having been proved to the satisfaction of the Court that Mr. Hornby was entitled to have his name inserted, they declined to insert it.11
