TOWN IMPROVEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 7 July 1869
TOWN IMPROVEMENTS. Among the improvements which have been taking place lately in Echuca several have been made which are worthy of notice. Mr Butcher's new brick house in Mitchell-street, on the eastern side of the railway, which is a handsome and commodious dweling, has just been completed. It is very prettily situated on rising- ground, and forms a pleasing addition to that portion of the town. Mr Nield, of the Jolly Waggoner, ona of our borough coun cilors, has erected a substanial brick building in Annesley-street, which has been let to Mr Bottomley for the purposes of a hay and corn store.

Fight between Leopards.—The Liver pool Courier describes a terrible fight between two of the largest leopards "in Manders's menagerie! It is usual before feeding to place large'-nibveable slides to separate the animals while' feeding. While preparing to do this the keeper had difficulty in keeping the two large leopards from engaging in a combat, andrno sooner had he turned his back to bring up the'glide than there was a howl, and the two''had commenced to fight. The sight was fearful. Both animals boldly confronted each other crouching down, lashing their sides with-.-their tails, and, making a spring, they fell'heavily locked in each other's embrace. The struggle that followed was long and fierce/ The eyes of the leopards flashed with fury as they struggled on the floor. Mr Manders used every endeavour to separate the infuriated :combatantsj but all with no avail; He then procured a long scraper, and dealt each a blow' which had the'effect of Separating them, only to renew the fig...

C|c pkrme jfcraBf. ECEUCA, SATURDAY, JULY iO, 1869. In cases where Magistrates at Petty Sessions tire allowed a discretion as to the amount and terms of their decisions, we have been always averse to criticise those decisions; but if Magistrates take upon themselves a discre tionary power which is not warranted, we deem it our duty as well to protest against their exceeding' their powers, as to vindicate the express meaning of Acts of Parliament by which they should be guided. We have within the last few days again gone through the farce cf appealing against a number of valuations in the borough, and in order to show the position we take on the subject, we quote the words of the Municipal Act as follows:—" All rateable property shall be valued at the rent for which the same can reasonably be expected to let from year to" year." Our readers will thus see that no dis cretion can be construed from the word " shall," which is clearly mandatory, and makes it imperative that valuations sh...
ANOTHER WHARF ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 10 July 1869
ANOTHER WHARF ACCIDENT. un liiursclay n quantity or timber was being discoarg-ed from a barge of Messrs Barber and Co's by means of the crane at the lower end of the wharf. While lifting about 38 cwt., the chain snapped, and the timber fell from a considerable height, fortunately into the water, and clear of the barge. The sheave at the end of the crane was broken, and one man narrowly escaped a very serious accident by being struck by a piece of iron, which flew with considerable force from the fracture. The work of discharging was seriously delayed. No wonder the complaints about the cranes are loud and deep. But the North-Eastern Railway is expected by the Government, so it is said, to destroy our wharf trade. No wonder the complaints are unheeded. Far-seeing people these railway officials—no doubt of it.

ECHTTCA POLICE COURT. On Wednesday, before the Police Magis trate arid' the Mayor, Antonio Francis was brought up, charged with lunacy, and was committed to the Collingwood Lunatic Asy lum. On Thursday, before the same magis trates, and Dr Crossen, J P , a number of cases of appeal against the Borough valua tions were heard. On the opening of the Court the town clerk applied for an adjourn ment for half an hour, in order to enable him to get the valuation book from the municipal office. The application was granted. Mr Taylor drew the attention of the Bench to the unnecessary nature of the delay thus caused, and said it would increase the claims for costs for which he intended applying. On the re-oppning of the Court, the first case called on was that of Geo. Redman, an ap peal against the valuation of the Criterion Hotel, which was rated at £180 per annum. Mr Taylor appeared for appellant, and said that he would remark with reference to this and the other cases of appeal in which he...
