Probate of the will was granted in the Supreme Court today. Robert James Campbell WALKER, late of Ashfield, electrical contractor, left the estate to his mother and on her death directed that a guardian be appointed to look after his dogs as well as he had done.

Not Guilty Of Theft Charge

A well-to-do 60-year-old retired confectioner, George Edward EASTWOOD of Orrong Rd, Elsternwick, was aquitted by a jury today of charge of having stolen or received a gold wristlet watch valued at £35. The prisoner was aquitted and discharged this morning after the jury had been out half an hour. Yesterday Judge MOORE sent the jury away and told me J. GALBALLY, counsel for the prisoner, that it had been his practice to avoid holding back court officals, jurors, and others into the night. When the court resumed today Mr. GALBALLY repeated objections he raised yesterday that the prisoner was entitled to immediate consideration of a verdict, particularly as the case had finished as early as 3.15pm.

He asked that a retrial be granted on the ground that jurors should not seperate before they considered a verdict. Judge MOORE refused the application, ststing that he had not finished his charge to the jurors when he sent them home. It was unfair he said to keep jurors back through their dinner hour after they had been sitting all day. Mr GALBALLY quoted a High Appeal Court decision that a prisoner was entitled to a retrial if, after the judge had, charged the jury, the jurors were seperated without being under the control of the court. Mt GALLBALLY said it might be that his Honor added some remark to the jury this morning on what he (Mr Galbally) said yesterday when the jury had retired, but he submitted that the trial had been completed. Judge MOORE said that he had not finished his charge, so the trial was not completed. It was in the interests of justice that jurors should not be sent out to deliberate in the late afternoon. This was resented by juries, and he had not the slightest doubt as to what was proper in the circumstances. The judge then made some remarks to the jury on another submission by Mr Galbally and sent the jurors into their room to consider a verdict.

How times have changed.

When Equipping A Kitchen Cost £35

Once upon a time (30 years ago) you could completely equip a kitchen for £35. Today, at a conservative estimate, the same equipment would cost £55.
And if you throw in modern gadgets, such as a refrigerator, dish washer machine, hot water system, electric jug, toaster and mixer, the price can reach astonishing figures.
But returning to 1919, when Kitchems cost £35.
The Elsternwick State School committee decided to raise funds for the school's playground. They conducted a carnival in the school grounds for a week, charging 1/ entrance fee, which admitted for the week. And, as a prize for the lucky ticket, they offered a completely equipped kitchen. Some of the prices paid by the school committee are listed below, with today's average prices in parenthesis. £ s d
