TALL CHIMNEYS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 31 July 1874

TALL CL[I~[NE'YS. Sir,-" Hopeful's" letter in your la.t issue is a most singular production. Can he sincerely hope to induce the inhabit ants of Brunswick to remain quite satis flied, and ignore the sage advice of the Central Board of Iealth in reference to brickmakers erecting tall chimneys to carry off the smoke front the gardens and dwellings of their neighbours. That this smolce kills vegetation is well known to those who own gardens in its neighbor hood; so how it can be productive of health to their owner.s is a queer puzzle. That 13runswick occupies a first-class position in haolt h statistics in consequence of tihe dentse volumes of stnolee roeetlisg fromt the brick kilus is a new idtta. Why not credit the salubriousness of the borough to its elevated position, its fline upland sweeps with which it is environed, or to its sparsely populated vales.

Original Poetry. THE OLD MECHANIC. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 7 August 1874

Original Poetry. TEE OLD ECOIIANtO. The old kIechanfe worn by toil, Slrinka from his once lov'd art, No longer does Iis cheerful smile Show hiicobntented heart. IIe'a fallei from the rank he held iAmougt i1is fellow men; Youth against age hath now rebelled, No more their praise he'll win. Oh I his looks arce few and turn'd gray, His brow is wriuklodo'dr; That brow that once look'd blithe and:gay, Is older than threescore. His stalwart frame his limbs oearce boar, ttis vigor's nearly gone; Hies future must be in the roar,-.; iFor friends I fear he's nond. He ply'd his tradeo for many years to palace, court and hall But ago. alas, his,brow now nosres Like Auetumnn leaves that fall. Yet still ,hefeols an innate pride That nothing can subdue ; And glories to stand side by aido With mon soloero and true.

MIDDLE WARD ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 7 August 1874

MIDDLE WARD ELECTION. Sir--Mr. Councillor Caine has been in the Council not quite six months, but during that time I think he has done ample justice to the borough. In the first place, by his motion that owners of vacant land should be compelled to pay rates, by searching the registry for their names, and likewise by endeavoring to get the names fixed at the ends and in tersections of the streets of the borough. It is generally acknowledged that this is much required, and should be at once proceeded with. Again, he has plenty of timo at- his disposal, and- ija an gtl man that possesses ample knowledge of the requirements of the borough. On these grounds I cannot see any objection to Councillor Caine being returned. lIo has got some considerable property in the borough, and this, to my thinking, is a guarantee that his opinions are genuine, and that lie has the welfare and pros perity of the borough at heart.-Your's, c., ItATEPAYEIR.

EXPLANATION. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 7 August 1874

EXPLANATION. Sir-In the course of my canvas as a candidate for a" seat in the Borough Council of IHotham, I have ascertained that a rumour has been industriously circulated in Elizabeth street that I am in favor of a two-shilling rate, and recovering half the cost of pavement, in order that the proceeds may be spent on the hill, and many other ridiculous things which have no foundation in fact. Allow me, as the best authority in the matter of my own belief, to state that no one would be more sorry than myself to see -the necessity arise for levying a two-shilling rate, but I am afraid, 'if the present majority in the Council persist in, the course they have committed themselves tb-viz., " That aso demaul be made on owners of property for any part of said improvement to footpaths," whilst at the same time, according to the statement of the Mayor at the last meeting of the Council, the Borough account is over drawn to the amount of £3000, the time seems to be dangerously near at hand ...

TILE ELECTIONS. iTuesday next. the ratepayers of ilotham will have an opportunity of ireturning two members to the local Council-ono for tihe Eastern Ward, alid one for the' 1Middle' Ward. Mr. Caine has avowed himself in favor of: hlalf the cost of 'pavement being de fr'yed by the property. owners when. laid down the whole width of tho, side liths, and contends that he is simply opposed to the fouir feet strip `being charged for.

THE PAVEMENT QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 7 August 1874

TIIE PAVEMENT QUESTION. Sir,-It is sosnewhat surprising that aftcr'you had declared your columns closed against any further corrospondenco in the above matter you published in your last issue a letter signed "\Western Ward," purporting to oalighten your readers on tho above question, but which in point of factsimply contained the following slan derous assertion.--"Thoro is no doubt in my mind and I think in many others, that for the pavement question we are in debted to Councillor Laurens and why? Simply because he happens at the present to be in the minority, and to have misap. propriated our money, otherwise we would never have hoard of it." I ask, sir, if this is not libellous. TVhat monies, for in stance, could Councillor Laurens possibly misappropriato.

THE MINISTRY. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 7 August 1874

THIIE MINISTRY. At last there is a reconstruction. 'of tha Ministry. The only man who could lay claim to any ability has resigned, anid the Cabinet, as inow composed, contains merely the official droles, without a particle of ability, without a policy, and without the vitality which a large following generally infuses -into a Go'ernme'ilt: The Kerford Ministry exist onlly on sufferance. There is such a lainentable paucity of public men, capable of guiding the helm of state, that aiiny? oodle, out at elbows, is deemed sifticieut to administer the affairs of thle: colony., The present session .will pdiove an -unprofitable one, because any. mesure Which may pass the lower house, if at all savoring of being in tlih interests of the working men, will most assuredly be rejected by the upper clhamber. Indeed, it is,-much to boe regretted that a strong opposition does exist at the present moment. It never wis more urgently needed.

NAMING STREETS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 7 August 1874

NAMING STREETS. Sir-About eighteen months ago at my instanco a committee of the Ilothanm Coon. cil took the matter of causing the names of the various streets in thoeborough to be placed at their several intersections into consideration. This was admitted on all sides tobe mucknecdcd: But on enquiry it was found that to do this work efleo tively it would cost some £150. The conclusion then arrived at was that though this was much needed, there were other wants still more pressing to the supplying of which the then. available funds of the council should be applied. Yet, Sir, just at the time that Councillor Caine, has to render an account for his short stewart ship, and when just: fresh from voting " that no demand be made o oowners for any part of the cost of paving their foot paths in Victoria and other streets," by which vote as a whole the counucil is deprived of the £2000 due to them by law as well as practice, and in face of the fact that the ordinary fund of the borough is ove...
