TO THE EDITOR OF THE INDEPENDENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 1 March 1864
TO THE EDITOR OF THE INDEPEkDENT. Si,--I see by your reports of the parlia mentary debates that Mir. Robertson pre sented a petition from certain road over seers dismissed by the present Government praying compensation. Now, Mr. Editor, I am at a loss to know how those road overseers can have come to any loss by their dismissal. I suppose, since the Cowper Goverumenst first took oflice, they never made a greater mistake than in taking the maunagemet of the minor roads out of the hands of the local benches. I only speak from my own experience of the works I have seen carried on in this district. The usual way in which the magistrates acted was this: they called for tenders for the repair of certain pieces of road, and the lowest tender was generally" accepted. Ine a very short time people began to know to a shilling a day whatsthey could earn. This knowledge was obtained by experience consequently the work could not be done cheaper or better for the money than it was done under the i...
