SOME SHIRES AND THE SUBSIDY. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Courier and West Melbourne Advertiser — 17 July 1896
SOME SHIRES. AND THIE SUBSIDY. Sr-thel ays ~f-rotrenclhmsint by the Goveirnent, the municipal subsidy to the various shires, borouglhs, and towns throughout the colony has been materially reduced, and these bodies have-in conse quence-some in a greater, and others in a lessextent--felt a Iraitening of tlheir financial circumSances. The allotment of municipal money is arranged on a slidingscale, and the lower, as regards importance in the matter of local, govern ment, the larger'is the amount received by each council. Thus a shire receives more ioney than a borough, and a boroughn more than a town. There-are around:MLelbournesome municipalities of compa;itively recent formation, such as the Shire of Malvern, which, according to thleir population and income, are entitled io the rank at least of a borough, if not a town. However, the councillors of these districts are wise enough in their generation to know thlatan increase of dignity means a decrease of subsidy, tmd-this-we have adist...

ROBBERIES. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Courier and West Melbourne Advertiser — 17 July 1896
RonnenbEs.--On Friday night, Egan's Hotel, Flemington-road, was entered, and 28- in cash, and fire bottles of spirits stolen. It seems that the burg lars gained access by the bar parlor window, which, next morning, was found to have been forced open. Mrs. Egan the licensee, gave information to the HIotham Hill police, but neither she or any of the members of the family heard the thieves at work. Subsequently, Mr. T. Smith's hotel was visited, probably by the same gang, but a dog on tihe premises began to bark, and the robbers decamped without having time to take anything. On Sunday night, entrance was effected by burglars into the Rose and Crown Hotel, Mit. Alex ander-road, of which Mr. Percival is the licensee. They regaled themselves with cold beef and champagne, but being apparently disturbed, departed without securing any plunder.
