VALUER IN REPLY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE INDEPENDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 21 April 1883
VALUER IN REPLY. &nbsp; TO THtE EDITOR OF THE INDEPENDENT.. Sir, =At the last meeting of the 'Footscray Borough Council, Councillor -Morris tabled a motion in the following words:-' That the action of the. valuer; Williaim Cruikshank, in (line missed) (see paper) firmed by the Cdouncil before being.heard by the Appeal Court, is. highly irregular and &nbsp; unjust to the ratepayers as being contrary to law, and that the amount of such reductions be a charge against any moneys due by the Council. Seeing that publicity is given to such a serious charge, I have to ask permission to comment on that gentlemans action in your columns especially as the insinuation contained in the motion is calculated to injure my repu tation as a valuer, and militate against me in the position I hold in other municipalitics. Before proceeding further, I take strong excep tion to the unmanly mode of attack, without in the first instance seeking an explanation that would readily have satisfie...

CHURCH OF CHRIST. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 21 April 1883
S CHURCH OF CHRIST. 'On Lord'a day evening last Mr Gilmour, of Broadmeadows, preached to a very fair audience, from Gal., 6. 14. But God forbid that glory save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world. The speaker was listened to with marked attention, while he dealt in detail with the many cases existing at present to prevent man from glorying in the cross of Christ. Pride of birth, love of money, human affections, . love of fame, in short love of the world and the things contained in it, must be in subjection to the love of Christ, and give it at all times the precedence, before man will glory in the Cross as Paul did, or carry the Cross. which such glorying will of necessity bring to the lot of every Christian. At the close of the dis. course there was a baptismal service, when Mr Brown, evangelist, gave an address on the words, " What meaneth this," Acts, 2. 13 When those words were addressed to the apostles on the...

UNITED METHODIST FREE CHURCH, YARRAVILLE. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 28 April 1883
UNITED MIET1ODISTFREE CIHUCRi, YA RRAVILLE. The anniversar" of the Sabbath School was* celebratced on Stnilay by three special services. The iiunpropitious weather militoted somewhat against the atteudance.: The Rev. A: Isa-ec conducted thle morning 's-rvice, aid selected 3rd Timothy, 14th and r5th verses. Th sulb. jct-of .the. discouroe was- the' importanice of home influence, especially that of the mother; the fathei's frequent absence" from lhome; in pursnit of his daily adocations did not afford him the same facilities for ioiulding thIe child's character as iass possessed by the mother. This influence was most mniarkedly nianifest in Timothy; undcr: the faithful training and teaching of his grandmother and mother, he was fitted to occupy the exiated position to which he v:is called. The responsibility of parents was immense1 ; the future of their off spring was in their keepingi As the ritind ex panded it required that food which is calcuLated to meet the higher cravings of its...
WHEN DOCTORS DISAGREE. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 28 April 1883
WHEN DOCTORS DISAGREE. -4~--- In no part of the numerous treatises on hygiene is agreement among doctors more beautifully illustrated than in the regulations for keeping cool. These regulations, like certain studies in the colleges, are optional, but not at all antithetical. For instance, as to liquids: DR nROW\'S ADVICE. DR S.MITI' ADI)VICE. Avoidcolddrinks; they Stick to cold drinks, suppress perspiration. theykeeptheskinmoist. Iced tea is dangerous. Iced tea is especially wholesome. Milk is a delightful Milk is heating. summer drink. Beer is bad in summer. Beer is a natural summer laxative. The light wines are The light wines are cooling. heating. The doctors, remembering that man is a carnivorous production, and cannot live (as woodchucks do) on suction, are equally agreed as to foods. Thus: DR BROW?'S ADVICE. DR SMITI S ADVICE. Avoid meats.

Bible in State Schools. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 28 April 1883
- Biblei Siate Schools. " FULLY convinced ?f the necessity of maintaining the 'seculair irinciples` of our Education Act, biut extremely doubtful of the genuineness of the zeal 'displayed by its opponents, we yet recognise the desirability of keeping clearly before our minds the reasons for our" faith in th'e present scheme. Amongst the arguimnerits in favor of the exclusion of all religious teaching whatever from State Schools are many that have not been sufficiently adverted to, but which materially strengthens our cause. A'short review of the methods of conveying religious instruction in the Denominational Schools during'the years immediately preceding the in ception of the Act would help to convince many of the utter folly of ever attempting such a course iii our State schools. In most of the D)enomina tional Schools the religious instruction -if we may so call it- consisted of the deliverance of a prayer by the head teacher' on the opening of the school in the morning, and a si...

Even the attractions of. ihe Eight Hours' demonstration, or the depressing influence of the rain, did not prevent the advocates of the different sides from active canvas to make their views successul. During the day at intervals the plroceedings were enlivened by some eqthu slastic partisans, and towards the close of the poll, and in the inter-val before the declaration was 'made, it seemed probable that fistical force would be brought to bear where argument failed to convince. A few persons professed' themselves . dissatisfied with the manner in which the questions were placed'before' the burgesses, hlleingi that the propositions should have been, first, "'That criminal proceedings against noxious, trades be taken forthwith," a...
