METROPOLITAN BOARD OF WORKS REPRESENTATIVES. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Courier and West Melbourne Advertiser — 31 July 1896
IMETROPOLITAN BOA.li OF WORKeS RIEI'RESENTA.TIVES.-At the mn!eeting of the North Melbourne Council on Mon tday, the Mayor, Cr. Fogarty, remarked that he, as representative of the Council on the Metropolitan Board of Works,. could be asked in public by any Coun cillor every fortnight, questions regarding any action of his at the Board table, or general information about the Board and its work, but the Council's repre sentatives on the Fire Brigade and Health Board were practically "nnget ntable" as regarded a personal interview with the Council as a body. This is certainly so, and it is a decided advantage to be in touch with the Board through the Council's delegate, and it is a pity the gentlemen on the other organizations mentioned above are not equally easy of access.

ST. MARY'S ANGLICAN MISSION. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Courier and West Melbourne Advertiser — 31 July 1896
ST. .11ARY'S ANGLICAN MISSION. Tlic Mission at St. Mary's has concluded with satisfactory signs of at least external success. The numbers attending the various services steadily increased up to the last evening service of thanksgiving on Monday night, while the solemn farewell service of Holy Communion on Tuesday morning was well attended. A second special service for children, not provided for in programme, was arranged for Monday afternoon after school hours, and the presence of a large number of attentive children testified to the favor which the missioner found in the eyes of the little ones, and their innate appreci ation of things spiritual. The missioner's method of exhibiting the backbone of his discourllre in black. white, and red. adds considerbly to thile interest which his own inspirating mainner excites. Another meet ing not on the programme was held in the Sunday schoolroom on Tuesday night, when a hurriedly arranged presentation was made to the missioner by some of th...
CORRESPONDENCE. We do not hold ourselves responsible for the opinions of our Correspondents. A COMPLAINT. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Courier and West Melbourne Advertiser — 31 July 1896
CORRESPONDENCE. iWe do not hld ourselors responsible for the opinions of our Correspondents. A COMPLAINT. S?'o the Editor.) 'Stn,--Having read a paragraph in your last issue of the COURIER in which you say the Western Ward ratepayers have a substantial grievance and might receive a little more attention than they do, I beg to thank you for your comment, and at the same time say it applies very much to a short " Cinderella" street in the ward, running from Dryburgh-st. to Munster-terrace, named Du Fen-st. I have resided the last fifteen years at the corner of Dryburgh-st. and the street under notice. During that time it got one light coating of metal, and as there is considerable vehicular traffic on it, the consequence is it is in very bad repair. The middle of the roadway is sunk in pie-dish shape, while the pitchers of the channel in some parts are fully six inches higher than the roadway, making it dan gerous to any person who is compelled to cross over thetm with a horse and veh...

THE FOOTBALL FRACAS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Courier and West Melbourne Advertiser — 31 July 1896
THE FOOTBALL FRACAS. Re?Ecns of the dailies were rather sur prised on Monday to-finda hlighlysen sational account of a "disgraceful row " at North Melbourne Recreation Reserve, on Saturday, at the conclusion of the football match between North Melbourne and Collin wood. According. to the city journals the scene was iilost dis creditable one to the local club and its supporters, and will have the effect of causing footballers from other:suburbs to shun North Melbourne, as the abode of athletic wild animiials fit only to' be left to fight and wrangle among themnselves. But the saying audi alteruam partema is every day proved to be a sound maxim to follow, as is strikingly shown in this case. We are told by our Co:lins-street contemporaries in the first place that the ground is mismanaged, being under very hazily defined control, and that the cricketers are only waiting to get another reserve, when they will discard the local one. As regards the control of the ground it is distinctly r...
