THE PAVEMENT QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 7 August 1874
TIlE PAVEMENT QUESTION. iA correspolindent asks the question, "why not appeal to the whole body of thel ratepayers of IHotham to aflirn or reject the principle of paying one half tile cost of composition pavement." The idea is not aibad one, but it comes rather late. If Counicillor Lauren's'side of the table is increased by one vote the money will be collected. If, on the con trary, the position of parties in the Coun cil remain as at present, the probability is:that property owners will not be asked to pay any of tihe cost. Possibly the question of appealing to the whole body of the ratepayers, irrespective of whether they are oil the roll or not, would elicit the true state .of feeling oui this qujestion, and " would give more satisfaction to the burgesses than witness inig cou?cillors wrangling anmong them sclvcesaid 'indulging in personal abuse. It is not an- e difyi!ng; spectacle to see a number of apparently sensible men washinig their dirty linen in public, yet - this is what...
THE HOTHAM BENCH. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 7 August 1874
Sir-I was heretofore under, the im pression that in order to obtain a con viction against any person, an informer must produce corroborative evidence; and that no bench of magistrates would convict on the unsupported testimony of any witness. Messrs. Lloyd and Laurens havo taught me otherwise by their de cisions in the recent eases wherein three other publicans and myself were fined for Sunday trading. I submit, Sir, that there was really no evidence that Conner obtained the liquor produced in court at my house; as Palmer the only other witness examined for the prosecution, and who produced the beer said to have been bought from me, simply stated he got it from Connor. As lie was not with Connor in my house, and did not see him purchase the beer, how could he swear it had been obtained there ? His was sim ly hearsay evidence, and ought not to ave been allowed. He swore that Connor said the beer was obtained from my place, and not that he know of his own knowledge that such was the c...

North Melbourne Advertiser, AND CARLTON ADVOCATE. FRIDAY, AUGUST 7TH, 1874. WHOLESALE VEGETABLE MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 7 August 1874
"AND CARLTON ADVOCATE,. FRIIDAY, AUGUSr7Tr?, 1874. WIIOLESAL9E VEGETABLE [MARKET. It will be seen fromn our advertising columns that a mooting will take place at the Royal Saxon Hotel, Elizabeth strct, on.? M ndaty evening, at eight o'clock, of all those interested in the removal of. theo Wholesale Vegetable Marlket to the vacant piece of ground in Victdria strdei. Although the land was granted by the Government to the City. Council for market purposes some six months since, it would seem that lLr. Casoy is disposed to withdraw from his promise, and now refuses to issue the Crown grant, alleging as an excuse, that the residents in Clhetwynd street objoct;to have a State School erected on a pieco, of land known as thel Bath RLi serve, and consequently the State School will have to be built in the locality where originally intended. This would,; if chrried into' effcet, effectually dispel any hope of seeing the market removed to North. -Melbourne... The object of thoe meeting is to pr...
MR. STRANGER, OF COBURG. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 7 August 1874
MR. STRANGER, OF COBURG. The decision given by the Minister of Education in the case of Mr. Stranger, master of the State school, Coburg, for kissing a young girl, appears to have raised the sympathies of his friends. Immediately after the decision became known, a deputation was formed, who waited on the Minister of Education, re questing that a reconsideration of his case would be made to have him retained in the district as master teacher of the new school to be opened in September. Also a petition has been got up in his favor, and taken to almost every house in the district for signature, the purpose being to certify that they are not opposed to Mr. Stranger as a public teacher. It is stated this petition has been signed by persons who have no interest in school matters-as numbers of both sexes are single, and others have no children to send. It is contended that this course of action on the part of Mr. Stranger's admiring friends is likely to cause an inquiry into the whole circ...

BLIND ASSYLUM CONCERT. BRUNSWICK. The concert given by the pupils of the Blind Asylum on Thursday evening was a great success. The hall of the M\Iechanics' Institute was filled to over flowing. The Iion. T. J. Sumner pro. sided. Ho expressed his pleasure at seec ing such a response to aid so grand an Institution, and mentioned that the whole proceeds of the evening's entertainment would be given towards it, Several gen tlemen having agreed to pay the necos saly expenses, and the cabmen of Bruns wick and Coburg had-most nobly come to the help of the sightless in conveying them to and from the borough freoofchargo The programme was strictly adhered to and gave intense satisfaction to the large audience assembled. The manner in which the several parts were executed certainly reflects .great credit on Mr. Greenwood, the musical instructor. Dur ing the evening two blind lads were busy on the platform, one basket working and the other net working, and their skill was something wonderful. ...

BRUNSWICK BOROUGH ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 7 August 1874
BRUNSWICK 3DOUOUGH ELEO* TION. T?he candidates nominated for the an nual election are the retiring members, Mesrs. Breeze, Hutton and Straw, and Mr. J. Fleming. It was expected that several other gentlemen would have allowed themselves to be put forward, but the overtures were declined. Mr. Fleming is one of the oldest residents in the borough, and a man of indepoendent fortune. He mentions in his address that he is in favor of postponing the consider ation of the loan until the fate of the Local Government Bill is ascertained, and the wisdom of this course is obvious. We quite agree with him in thinking it highly desirable that a schedule of works should obe published, setting forth the various localities in which the money will be expended. Indeed the absence of such a document wears an ugly aspect, and it very much looks as if the Councillors were afraid of submitting it to public inveati galion. On this ground alone Mr. Fleming is deserving of the support of the ratepayers.
LECTURE BY THE REV. W., KELLY, S.J. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 7 August 1874
LECTURE ]3Y THE REV. W., KELLY, S.J. On Monday evening the Roman Catholic Church, North Melbourne, was crowded to excess by a highly ap preciative audience to hear the Rev. Father Kelly, S..T., deliver a lecture on "Spain." The chair was occupied by the -Mayor of I-Iotham (Councillor Fogarty.) The lecturer, after some in troductory remarks regarding the in terest attaching to Spain at the present tim'e through its intestine conflicts, began by tracing the history of the country, when colonised by the Cartha ginians, as a counterbalance to the possessions which had been wrested from her by Rome to the period when at length Spain came wholly under the Roman dominion. Thence from the fall of Rome, herself, the lecturer traced the course of events under the Spanish Visgoths, whose kingdom commenced in 411, and terminated exactly 400 years afterwards, during which period the prosperity and power of the nation are testified by numerous authorities, the greatest proof of its happiness and ...

There is plenty yet to be done before the district they represent can be said to be worthy of being a part of the City of Melbourne.
