  • 3 Dec 1915: In Memorian. MR. J. E. PITTOCK.
    When Jonathan Edward Pittock was called to his rest, the Methodist Church lost one of her most loyal sons, the Protestant cause one of her sturdiest champions, the widow and orphan a generous friend, and every worthy movement an earnest supporter. Bro. Pittock was a native of Hadleigh, in Suffolk, where he was born in 1848 of Baptist parentage. At an early age, he came with his parents to Victoria, and settled in Geelong. He was converted in the Pakington-st. Primitive Methodist Church, when a young man, through the instrumentality of Mark Tonkin, a local preacher. He always regarded that as the happiest, as well as the most decisive event, in his experience.
    His earnest spirit led him into the paths of usefulness. He became a local preacher, worker in Sabbath school, and secretary of various church interests ; in fact, he occupied in turn every office open to a layman and filled them all with faithfulness and efficiency. He was many times, before and after Methodist union, representative to Conference. For some years he was superintendent of the Pakington-street Primitive Methodist Sunday school, then he filled similar office in the Newtown school, and later on he established a Sabbath school in connection with the Protestant Orphanage and acted as superintendent till his last illness rendered attendance impossible. He was a committeeman and ex-president of the Orphanage, and the fatherly interest he took in the children was reflected in their affection for him and the pathetic sight of orphans weeping at the graveside when he was laid to rest. He was a trustee and member of the Newtown Society at the time of his death, a generous and systematic contributor to the church funds, in warm sympathy with the work of the ministerial and pastoral office, and all that advanced the spiritual as well as the material interests of the church. The family altar was a recognised institution in his home, and his domestic life was particularly hanpy and blessed. He was a prominent worker in the Sons of Temperance and Loyal Orange Lodges. His funeral was very largely attended, Methodists and other ministers, representatives of public bodies in Geelong, Bros.. R. T. Vale, O. R. Snowball, M.L.A., J. A. Baker, A. T. Ramsay and other representatives of the L.O.L. of Victoria. H. Francis and other leaders in the Sons of Temperance; and a numerous body of citizens, thus showing their respect for the character and labours of a godly man.
    A largely attended 'In Memoriam' service was held in the Newtown Methodist Church on Sunday, evening, October 17th, when the Rev. H. S. Heath preached an appropriate sermon on Isa. xxxii. 2 : "And a man shall be as an hiding place from the wind and a covert from the tempest, as rivers of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land."
    Many testimonies to our late brother's worth and usefulness have been received by the family from public men throughout Victoria, and from old scholars who remember with gratitude the benefits received while under his influence. "The memory of the just is blessed." H.14

  • 6 Nov 1925: Florence Evelyn Loft, 35 years, of Greville-street, Prahran, sought divorce from Eric Arthur Loft, 34 years, of Oak-grove, East Malvern, on the ground of desertion. Petitioner said that her husband's conduct became so bad in 1920 that she was forced to leave him. She obtained a maintenance order against respondent. In March, 1922, she met her husband by appointment, and cohabitation took place on one occasion on her husband promising to make a home for her. A little while later respondent said married life was like a mill stone round a man's neck. He wanted to go and come as he pleased, and would not make a home for her. He had since refused to make a home, but had paid her maintenance regularly. A decree nisi was granted with costs. Florence Evelyne Kemp3

  • 28 May 1936: THEFT OF ELECTRICITY. Fine of £ 25 imposed.
    Pleading guilty to a charge of having between September 1, 1930 and October 27, 1935 fraudulently used electricity, Eric Arthur Loft, racehorse trainer of the Cardinia Park Hotel, Beaconsfield, was fined £25, in default imprisonment for three months, with £5 3/ costs, by Mr R E Stapleton PM at the Malvern Court yesterday.
    Mr Breen solicitor for the Electricity Commission described it as one of the worst cases that had yet been detected. Loft, he said, had held an A grade electrician's licence. When Loft vacated premises at Oak grove, Malvern, in October of last year, officers of the commission who went to reconnect the electricity supply for the new tenants found that lights were already burning in the house. A search was conducted and an elaborate system of "bridging out" by which the main had been tapped without the current passing through the meter was discovered. When interviewed Loft denied all knowledge of the wiring, but said, "All the commission is concerned about is the amount of which it has been robbed. Tell me what that is and I will pay it."
    Joseph Henry Foster a superintendent employed by the commission said that radiators, an electric cooker and other appliances had been freely used in the house. It was estimated that over the period of five years named in the charge the commission had been defrauded of approximately £300.15
