METROPOilTAN ' BOARD': \OF WORKS AND THE MINIMUM WAGE.- Tul diseission on the minilnum ratio! wage at Tuesday's meeting of tile above body,.s Lreported, in ihe daily press is certainly lively reading. Comomissioner Atilyns, after announcing that person illy he was not in favor of the minimum wage; moved that- thle following resolu tion, which had been arrircd at by the Legislative -Committee, be adopted. 'That in:the opinion of the committee the principle of the minimum rate of wage does apply toall labor used in the manufacture of pipes made in the colony." Commissioner O'Cosnor said that the legis!ative committee felt far from complimented by the action of the chairman--Mr. E. G. Fitzgibbh.--in ignoring tlheir decisiun and- issuing a ciicular dissenting- from it, and this action of the 'lit-named gentlekman does indeed seem to add to his reputation for iutocracy, *hich, whatever his adminis trative and official abilities maybe,:luies alvays been a strong-element in his character, ...

FOUR BRITISH QUEENS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Courier and West Melbourne Advertiser — 10 July 1896
FOUR BRITISH QUEENS. -4--~ A LECTURE under the above title was given by Mrs. C. Rickarby in tile Town Hall, on Monday evening. The audi ence was not nearly so large as the excel lence of the remarks of the lady lecturer deserved, and credit must be accorded to her for the manner in which she delivered her sentiments under anything but en couraging circumstances. MIrs. Rick arby prefacel her remarks by stating that many people thought that no one took any interest in qeeens, but if the public had the history of some of the il uInstrious women of bygone ages brought before them, she was sure they would appreciate its facts, and the lessons to be deducted from them. It could be shown that the female sovereigns of England had done a great deal for their country-more, in fact, than many of the kIings with their wars, political squabbles, and some very questionable private acts. From thle time of Marcia the Just to Victoria, the queens of Eng land had done a great deal more for the format...
