(To the Editor of The Guardian.)-: SSia,-I admire ~he respect foridecency -to say nothing of the convenience which our modest civic representatives, have shown by: causing the erectiru on our fast-improving recreation ground of build ings for the private convenience of both ladies and gentlemen ; - but when this in nate modesty is carried so far as- to have these places securely locked on occasions when their utility could be availed of it is wholly inexplicable. This was found to, be the case on Saturday afternoon last when a large number of people assembled to witness an important football match. There is surely some mistake, for what is the use of these buildings to the public if kept at all times under lock and key ? If our worthy city fathers would accept a hint in order to carry their respect for public decency a- step further, I would suggest that they should cause one of the corners of the present shed to be partitioned off as a dressing room, for it is anything but an edify...

(To the Editor of the Guardian.) SntR,-A paragroph in your last issue makes reference to the Brass Band declin ing to take part in a certain series of enter tainments to be given for the benefit of various clubs, &c. As the paragraph ap pears open to misconstruction, kindly afford me space to give, publicity to the Band's position in the matter. In its present ridi mentary stage the Brass. Band is totally unfitted to make a public appearance, con sequently the committee do not feel justi fied in soliciting public patronage or ac cepting public subscription for which they can offer nothing in return. However, I have no hesitation in saying that when the band, which is now diligently practicing, has acquired sufficient proficiency to warrant a public performance, they, as a public insti tution, will gladly avail themselves of any benefits accruing from the patronage of a generous public. Thanking you in antici pation, I am, sir, yours, &c., PERCY A. BURT, Bandmaster. S...

PASSING EVENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian — 27 July 1894
PASSING EVENTS. (BY' CERBERUS.) The Government proposal to reduce the municiple subsidy by £100,000 is commendable no doubt as far as it goes; but why stop: at-: this I Why not abolish it altogether, excepting, perhaps, in the cases:of newly-fortmed shires? The, public are taxed all round to provide means for carrying. on. the government of .the country, and not a penny of. the general revenue should be given too local bodies simply' to help them to keep down-the rates. Landed property hassincreased considerably in value through the building of railways, the .owners' being greatly benefited in various ways byy the. accommodation. Under these circuinstances the very least that might be expected would be for them to make and keep in repair their roads at their- own cost without in any way encroaching on the funds of the State. " But I am afraid we are not likely to see; such an exhibition of self-reliance and patriotism n by our" local governing bodies for a while; at least, when we d...
