THE HOTHAM MAYORALTY. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 21 August 1874
THE HOTIIAMI ?A.YORAnLTY, "lBothlidos of the Hosse" iu the flothmin Council will bring forward a candidate for the Hotham Mayoralty for the ensuing year. The names of two gentlemenl ave beenl mentioned in con nection with the coveted position. Each possesses friends, and both parties are prutty:evenly balanced. T2he Council should select a gentleman possessing firmness to maintain order, and to en .sure that proper respect be paid to the occupant of 'the Mayoral chair. This should be rigidly observed, because unless it is, the proceed ings are apt to degenerate into rowdy ism. Party feeling occasionally runs so high in the discussion of some trumpery matter, that personalities of the coarsest description are indulged in with inm punity, and in place of Councillors main taining the character of gentlemen the reverse is very frequently the case. Our remarks have a general application. Councillors themselves must perceive that the course they have lately pursued is not calculated to ra...

Borough Councils. IIOTHAM COUNCIL. FlRIDAY, 1Trn AUGouT. Present--Iis TWorship the Mayor (in the chair,) and Councillors Clarke, Laur ens, Thomas, White, Paton, and Ryan. The new members, Messrs. Cook and Ryan, were introduced to the Mayor, subscribed to the declaration, and took their seats. Previous to the correspondence being read, Councillor Clarke asked why the cheque for £1,008, which had been signed and ordered to be placed to the credit of the loan fund, had not been paid into that account. The Mayor said that it was by his in. instructions that the Town Clerk had not done so. He (the 2Mayor) considered that the overdraft of the borough fund was quite large enough without increasing it still more. If that cheque had been paid in the overdraft would amount to'some thing like £3,000, and he would ask how were they in a position to pay that large amount. Again, he learned from one of the councillors who had signed the cheque that it was understood that it was not intended to be...

Football Notes. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 21 August 1874
Football Notes. CARLTON V. MIELBOURNE. 'The third contest this season between these clubs took place on Saturday in the Royal Park. ''The match was ex pected to be a close and exciting one, and attracted a crowd of spectators amounting to something like nine or ton thousand, who, as usual, did their best to spoil the game by crowding the space which should have been clear for the players, so much so, that for the last twenty minutes the game was played in a lane, scarcely more than twenty yards wide. Meolbourne played its strongest team, and Carlton, but for the absence of Dedman, the "sneak," was as well represented as possible. The game commenced at 3.15. Donovan having won the toss, determined to take advantage of the. wind, and the ball was kicked off by the Melbourne lHercules, Bell. For a few minutes the Carltonites were kept busy defending their goal, then a rush in which Guy, Money and O'Brien were conspicuous, brought the ball behind the Melbourne posts. The ball is kicked ...

WOMENS' QUARRELS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 21 August 1874
WOUIMENS' QUA1i RELS. It frequently ocouri that people who get mixed up with the police have a particular objection to see their ilames appear in the papers, and we are con tinually being asked to omit all men tion of cases of this nature. As a general rule we have always declined tolaccedo to any such request. Acting in the interests of justice, we conceive that the best method of preventing crime is to expose it, in order that such publicity may deter the evil disposed; and holding these opinions we have published the names of drunkards, &c., and in summarising the various cases which have come before the IHotham bench, we have not been sparing in cen suring individuals whose conduct de served it. The cause which has induced us to make these remarks has reference to a case which was heard at the police court on Thursday last. Under the heading of " Womens' Quarrels" a mis take has occurred, which if not contra dicted, may injuriously affect the repu tation of a respectable...

C013URG0 DISTRICT ANNUAL ELECTION. Thursday 13th being the grand day, early in the morning the forces began to muster at the polling booths, and it was evident, from the unmber of voters who appeared on the scene, that con siderable interest was being taken in the result. In the North Sub-division MEr. Vincent was allowed a walk over. In the East Sub-division Mir. Miusson had to fight for his seat, his old op ponent, lMr. Barrett, standing against him, thus making the fourth time he had to submit to opposition in local matters, including the action brought in the Supreme Court against him by Mlr. Barrett. The result of the poll, however, gave Mr. Mussen a majority of ten votes over his opponent, much to the satisfaction of his supporters. In the West Subdivision, .Mr. William Hunt, who has filled the office of Chair man with so much satisfaction, was opposed by Mr. Voalentine W`orthy, but it was looked upon as a certainty that lIr.

BRUNSWICK ANNUAL ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 21 August 1874
BRUNSWICK ANNUAL ELEC TION. The election of three councillors took place on Tuesday 11th, and resulted in the return of Messrs. Fleming, Breese, and Hutton. The excitement during the day was never very great, but the friends of. each candidate worked hard, and a large number of votes were polled. Soon after noon there was an impression abroad that Mr. Breese was the lowest on the poll, and his friends commenced to plump for him. From the first it was seen that MIr. Fleming would head the poll. The following are the returns from the several polling places: Fleming. Breese. Hutton. Straw. Court House 110 89 64 03 Mechanics' 238 193 131 131 Union street 57 C6 30 27 Weston street 143 122 75 59 548 475 300 280 The poll on the removal of the Toll gate gave 321 for, and 245 against majority 76. A majority was recorded in favor of the removal of the gate at all the polling places except the Quarries, and there the majority was 27 against.

:3RUNSTVICK RIIARMONIC SO CIETY. The third subscription concert of the season is announced. Talc ing into consideration the fact of the so ciety having upwards of fifty annual subscribers, it has acted as a spur to the lion. conductor and the committee, who have ably seconded his efforts.
