  • 23 Apr 1884, BEACONSFIELD. Public Assembly Hall. An influential meeting of the ratepayers of the Pakenham Riding of the Shire of Berwick, amongst whom we noticed Pro fessor Halford, Councillor Charles Souter, J.P., Messrs. William H. Goff, Alex. Crichton, William Brisbane, William Elms, J. Hyde, Lennie, Adams, Swift Glishman and others, was held in the above hall on Saturday afternoon last, at four o'clock, for the purpose of discussing the desirability or otherwise of forming a fourth riding or readjusting the boundaries of the present ridings of the Berwick Shire. In the absence of the President of the Berwick Shire, Mr. Edward Hanley, J.P., who had convened the meeting by public advertisement in this local paper, Professor Halford was pro posed, seconded and unanimously ap pointed chairman. He accordingly took his seat as such and opened the proceedings by stating the objects of the meeting, and in a long and eloquent appeal gave cogent reasons in favour of a fourth riding as contradistinguished from a re adjustment of the present riding's boun daries.-Mr. W. Brisbane in rising to propose the first resolution pointed out amongst other reasons for his present course of action that up to the now existing time the whole of Beaconsfield proper had been absolutely left unrepre sented in the Berwick Shire Council. He therefore moved-"That a fourth riding is necessary and that one be established, to be called the Beaconsfield Riding of the Shire of Berwick.—Mr. Adams seconded in a brief and pithy speech.-Councillor C. Souter stated that he considered the most of Mr. Brisbane's remarks did not apply to this matter, as the question was whether a fourth riding was necessary. He (Councillor Souter) believed that even a fifth riding was necessary. He said that twelve months ago Gembrook felt the necessity of having a fourth riding in their district. The outside portion of that district objecting to be annexed to Berwick Riding. At the suggession of the Minister of Public Works the Berwick ratepayers then seemed agreeable to a fourth riding, which was afterwards knocked on the head by Councillor J. S. White, who brought figures before them that were not reliable, and who proposed, and got carried in the Council, that a fourth riding was not necessary. On behalf of the people objecting to their having a separation from Gembrook, he said they were willing to assist them, if the district was large enough for a fifth riding. He knew of nothing in the Municipal Act to prevent their being eight ridings in a shire, which at three members to a riding would constitute a Shire Council of twenty-four members. If the Berwick Shire Council lors hindered the people far north, that was those fifteen or sixteen miles' away from Berwick, from making themselves into new ridings, he could see nothing for it but having a now shire. They ought all to be properly represented in the Shire Council Chamber. He thought the first thing the meeting ought to consider and decide upon should be, was a fourth riding necessary for Beaconsfield alone, without any assistance from Gembrook. Mr. Brisbane here asked the speaker what would be the use of the meeting that night if the name of their riding was left out.-Councillor Souter stated that he and others would then be able to vote for the abstract question of a fourth riding being necessary without specifying any particular one.-The Chairman asked Mr. Brisbane to allow Councillor Souter to finish his speech, and he would answer any questions after he sat down, but not to interrupt him then.-Councillor Souter stated that he had some other objections he had to the motion as it stood.-After conversational remarks and desultory interjections from others in the body of the meeting, the chairman put the motion, which he declared carried unani mously with the exception of Councillor Souter and Mr. A. Crichton, who were the only dissentients, and whose reason for objecting was that they considered that if a fourth riding called Beaconsfield was necessary, and therefore established, those who lived fifteen or sixteen miles away from Berwick and their neighboring selectors were just as strongly entitled to a fifth riding to be called Gembrook. Mr. Swift proposed a vote of thanks to their learned chairman.- Seconded by Mr. Elms and carried. Professor Halford thanked the meeting in a few well-chosen words for their ex treme orderliness and their strict atten tion, and announced that concluded the business of the meeting.10
  • 5 Nov 1884, From Charles Swift, directing attention to the state of road leading from Craike's corner to his property. —Councillor Souter said the road should receive first attention.—Secretary to reply.11
  • 25 Mar 1885, Charles Swift v. Arthur H. Somner; a charge of using insulting words in a public place. Mr. Demaine appeared for the plaintiff, Mr. Lowe for the defendant, who denied the charge. It seemed that complainant had gone to the post office at Beaconsfield where defendant is post master, for his letters, when a complaint was made about his letters being detained, and which had been represented to the Postmaster-General, which had created some ill-feeling between the parties. It was stated in evidence that defendant had closed the post office window, came out and used the language complained of.— Mr. Lowe applied for an adjournment to obtain the attendance of a witness who, it was alleged, heard the altercation through an open window.—The Bench adjourned the case to the 17th April. Costs to be costs in the cause.12

  • 30 Dec 1897, The Late Mr. J. B. Pevost.— To-day is announced the death, in his seventy-first year, of Mr. Jean Baptiste Prevost, at his residence, Fisher-street, Norwood, on Wednesday, December 29. Mr. Prevost came from Troyes, France, about the year 1849, and settled in Victoria. For some years he conducted a large hairdressing establishment in Bourke-street, Melbourne. This he eventually sold at a high figure, and with his wife went to Paris, where they remained about three years. Returning to the colonies, he took a shop in King William-street near where the A.M.P. Society's building now stands; thence he moved to Rundle-street, where the City Cash Stores now are, and next to the ill-fated Academy of Music. Since then, however, in the same street, he and his son Lucien have conducted a well-known hair-dressing establishment. He was actively engaged in the business nearly up to the time of his death. About eight years ago he underwent a serious operation for an internal complaint, and regained fair health. He made another trip to France five or six years ago, but his health not long afterwards became indifferent again. The extreme heat of the past few weeks doubtless accelerated his end. He has left a married daughter at Marseilles. France, and two in the colonies, Mrs. McDonald, of the Pier Hotel, Glenelg, and Mrs. Busst, of Bendigo. There are two sons, Mr. George Prevost, late of Messrs. Elder, Smith, & Co., and Mr. Lucien Prevost, of the firm in Rundle-street. His wife, Madame Prevost, survives him.10

  • 13 May 1926, THE GRAND COFFEE PALACE. Tenders were recently called by Wilkinson, Sando, & Wyles, Limited, on behalf of the Trustees in the Estate of M. C. Billet, deceased for the lease or purchase of the Grand Coffee Palace, one of the best-known and best-conducted hostelries of its kind in South Australia. We now learn that Mr. H. A. Macdonald, the lessee of the Glenelg Coffee Palace, is the successful tenderer for the lease of the premises. Mr. Macdonald is a son of the late Mrs. Henriette Mcdonald, during whose 13 years of capable management the Grand Coffee Palace achieved its enviable reputation. Since the death of Mrs. Macdonald, the management has been carried out by her executors (Elder's Trustee and Executor Company, Limited), and the public will doubtless appreciate the fact that the business is being retained in the family, by one who has already had long association with it.12
