THE CONTRIBUTOR. BOTH SIDES OF THE WALL. [Newspaper Article] — The Prahran Telegraph — 13 April 1889
THE CONTRIBUTOR. BOTH SIDES OF THE WALL. [BY THE MAN ON TOP.] The Earl of Onslow has already attained colonial fame. In the few days of his exis tence on Australian shoreshe has discovered that Australians "are not given to exhibit ing pushinig self-assertion," and that they "are not given to blow." Let Anthony Trollope hide his distinguished heall. The commoner's slanders have been answered iy the peer. And we never blow, do we e Well, hardly ever. It will strike people that Lonl Onslow, while he may have the " Democratic vigor" which is accredited to him, is at the same time not wholly desti tute of soft soap. I'raran fathers and mothers have good cause to be proud of their little folk. The children's concert in the Town-hall, so well described in your last issue, was a credit to the young people. But why, in this fair land of of ours, where war and tyrrany and bloodshed is unknown, shouhl we teach our little people to sing the song of despairing France--a song which found its bir...

DEPARTURE OF CR. J. C. RICHARDSON. RIESIGNATIONOF HIII POSITION AS ST. KILDA COUNCILLOt. We understand that Cr. J. C. Richardson, of St. Kilda, has departed on a visit to Europe, which will be of six months' dur ation, and that lie has sent in his resig nation as a councillor to the borough council. Certainly this is an honorable amd manly mode of procedure; but twhile admitting that, as a general rule, the rinciple is good, we think, all circum ltances considered, the West ward rate iayers wouhld be pleased were the council to tnanimously grnt six months' leave of abence to Cr. Richardson in lieu of nccept ing this resignation. The gentleman'r de tarture is partly on account of ill-healtll tnd partly business. The directors of the City of Melbourne BIuitling Society, of vhich he .c secretary, Iave unanimously granted him six months' leave.

OBNOXIOUS MISSIONARIES. Sir,-From enclosed extract from to night's (Monday's) Herald, you will see that my letter to you about the self-styled missionary in last issue is not without foundation, for fanatics of the same order are visiting 6ther suburbs. The Apostles' injunction seems to be altogether disre grnled by this class of people, "Letall things be done decently and in order." ST. JonN. The following is the extract enclosed by ur correspondent : "A mrrepondent writes:--A few evangelists have been carrying their crusade against sin to extraordinary lengths in Albert Park.

TO TIIHE SHOPKEEPERS OF PIiAHRAN. Sir,--I beg through the medium of your journal to bring before the shopkeepers of Plrahmn the great boon it would be to their employCs if Saturday were made a universal holiday.

OxcR in six or seven years our desire for ultra-nimproved sanitatioli becomes outrageous. 'o cannlot suffer the by gieni laws to be violated. We must make a firm stand against thelgeneran tion of disease. We must teach insani tarianos that the people of the queen city of the south and its suburbs appreciate the iinljortance of healthful cleanliness. Accordingly, some unfortunate man, in iso respect worse than hundreds of others whoso offences lhave been treated with lenity, is singled out as an expia tory sacrifice. These observations are adapted from those of a celebrated author because they apply admirably to the recent severity manifested by the adjudicating magistrates at the 1Mal vernpolice-court against soine luckless property-owners, swho were offered as the "expiatory sacrifice " on the occa sion. They had not complied with the previous order of the court to form, "pave, and leel 'ertain private streets, and they were fined most severely, the penalties ranging from £30 to f5...
MR. S. L. CHAPMAN'S COMMITTEE. [Newspaper Article] — The Prahran Telegraph — 17 April 1889
MR. S. L. CHAPMAN'S COMMITTEE. -4- Sir,-Surely, in these days when we hear so much about the sancity of politics, the purity of public life, anl the nobility of our parliamentary institutions, it is to be expected that aspirants to such transcendent dignities, will have their lives unsullied by corruption and free from the taint of political jobbery. But when we come to refleecct upon the incidents connected with the campaign just completed, one is shocked amd disgusted to find that all the loftiest attributes of public life have been dis graced, degraded, and transgressed. As one who is thoroughly acquainted with thedo. ings and practices of Mr. Chapman's late executive committec--I was engaged to sup port Mr. Chapman by AMr. Hyslop, J.P., and Mr. Felstead-I wish to offer afew remarks in reference to the quarrel which occurred between Mr. W. O. Coulson and Messrs Hyslop, J.P.,and Felstcad (who, by the way, constituted the so-called executive). At first I was inclined to join in the...

McCloy, as Wandering Steenic, Bed Ronaldl by Mr. T. Inglis, Mr.T. Macdonall as Guy, and Mr. J. Carroll as Albert. The play itself is of tho composite order of architecture, haying in its make up, which is suippoedl to emanate mostly from the Highlands or borders, a mixture of very " Italianish" looking briganda, whose graceful slouch hats were supplied by those broad-brim felt capillary pieces mostly affected by the genial larri kin, together with other incongrulties alto gether out of place with Scotch surround ings, but the performers were re...
