Meetings. REMOVAL OF THE WHOLESALE VEGETABLE MARKET TO VICTORIA STREET [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 14 August 1874
Meetings. REMOVAL OF THE WHOLESALE VEGETABLE MARKET TO VICTORIA STREET. A very influential meeting of the resi. dents of West and North Melbourne, was a held at the Royal Saxon Hotel, Elizabeth &nbsp; street. Mr. H. Bowen occupied the chair. Mr. Irvine moved the first resolution, as follows:-" That this meeting regrets the delay that has arisen in carrying out the arrangements made for the erection of a general market on the site between Vic- toria street and the old Cemetery." He - said that the almost universal opinion of the residents of West Melbourne was that the market should be removed from Bourke street to the north end of the &nbsp; town. It was considered a serious in- &nbsp; convenience to be compelled to send to the extreme end of Bourke street for vegetables and dairy produce required &nbsp; by householders, and he contended that a market was urgently needed in West and NorthMelbourne. The Eastern Market was likewise far too small for the...
BRUNSWICK COURT. WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 5TH 1874. (Before Messrs Strutt, P.M., Breeze, Staley and Fleming.) [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 14 August 1874
BRUNSWICK COURT. WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 5TH 1874 (Before Messrs Strutt, P.M., Breeze, Staley and Fleming.) Messrs Clark, Fenton, Boothroyd, Martin and Adams, for leaving their cabs unprotected, were fined 1s. and 2s. 6d. costs each, with the exception of Martin, who not appearing, was fined 2s. 6d. and 2s. 6d. costs, and for a further charge of having no lights he was fined 7s. 6d. and 2s. 6d. costs. A charge against Boothroyd, of using insulting language in a public place, was also dealt with. It appeared that the whole of the men had been indulging more or less at the shrine of Bacchus, and apparently did not relish the interference of Constable Nixon, who informed the Bench that Boothroyd's behaviour was so menacing that he had to draw his baton on the occasion, but fortunately had no necessity to test the thickness of any one's cranium. Boothroyd was fined, 5s. and 2s. 6d. costs. — Franklin, of the Victoria Hotel, was fined 1s. and 2s. 6d. costs for not keeping a light over his licen...
MR. STRANGER, OF COBURG. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 14 August 1874
MR. STRANGER, OF COBURG. Sir — The charge against Mr. Stranger, master of the State School at Coburg, for kissing a young lady, has given rise to a considerable amount of unpleasantness in that district, caused principally by the actions of some persons who are unwill- ing to believe that Mr. Stranger has been guilty of any impropriety in kissing the female pupils belonging to the school. When the Minister of Education decided that he should be reprimanded for his conduct, and removed from the district, it would have been well if his friends had let the matter rest, and not to have got up a deputation to wait on the Minis- ter with the view to induce that gentle- man to alter his decision. Also a petition has been hawked to almost every house in the district for signature, and is stated has been signed by persons of all ages and sex — married and unmarried — the majority of whom have no interest in school matters. This no doubt is in- tended to represent public opinion in re- ferenc...

BRUNSWICK ANNUAL IRA.CES. GRAND STEEPLECHtASE. TUESDAY, AUe. 11. The " Councillor's Plate," the winner to hold the same for three years. This event, which had been looked for ward to with interest, came off as adver. tised. The Judge and Clerk of the Course were punctual to their respective engage ments, and the team got well away to gether at ' a.m. precisely. The Grand Stand on the hillshad a considerable con. course of people, but the greatest number congregated near the centre of the course and about the olech flices' Institute. A few showed themselves at the Iuatchers' Alloy, and there was also a good crowd on the rocky ground to the eastward of the course. Thle Native led off'with a bound, and all round the paddocks to the westward he seemed to have it all his own way, the Mayor a good second, with Porker and iBroadclotl well up. The pace was not rapid, and it was quite uncertain which would take the second and third places. Along Butcher's Alley the Mayor put on a spurt and t...

Thomas is engaged as clerk in the office of the Com. missioner of Police, but is likewise a Police Sergeant, and the old instincts of his profession could not tolerate a viola Lion of the law, so he accordingly arrested Fisher, and a discriminating bench im. posed the fine of 5s. or 24 hours' impri sonment. Dnruvs.-Two inebriates named MIi chael Tobin and Robert Gorman were cautioned and discharged, it being their first offence.
