FOOTBALL NOTES. NORTH MELBOURNE v. COLLINGWOOD. A Grand Game with a Very Unsatisfactory Termination. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Courier and West Melbourne Advertiser — 31 July 1896
FOOTBALL NOTES. By SAIsrFOsDs. NORTH MELBOURNE v. COLLINGWOOD. A Grand Game with a Very Un satisfactory, Termination. TuB large attendance at the North Melbourne Recreation Reserve on Satur day last denoted Aitl unusual interest in the meeting of the above clubs for the first time this seasn. North Melbourne have been particularly unfortunate in the selection of their teams, as, in nearly every match played, one or two of their most reliable men have been prevented, by some cause or other from taking their plhces in the field, and the matcl last Saturday proved no exception to tile rule, Grant and E. Taylor, both of whom have done good work in the imatchels in which they Ihave taken part, being missing from thi conflict. Three new juniors, all hailing from the Melrose -premiers in their competition-Torpey, Riordan, and Murray-werd tried. The two former amply justified their inclu sion, whilst the latter, albeit somewnlat "green," gave promise of future excel lence. Collingwood had a...
ROSEMONT CRICKET CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Courier and West Melbourne Advertiser — 31 July 1896
R eosES .TCOT csRET CLUn.-A meet ing of this club was held on Monday night, Mr. Cbinnock, being in the chair, and it was decided to hold a social in the Trades' Hall, on Friday, Sept. 11th, 1896. A Committee was formed to carry out the arrangements, with Messrs. McNamara and H. Morrison as joint secretaries. TuE Ban Doon FI?E.-As the law stands at present, the minimum penalty for apublican having his bar door unlocked during prohibited hours is £5. It is very questionable whether the existence of such a severe penalty on the Statute book is desirable, as it is out of propor tion to the offence, and is an incentive to defendants to commit perjury. Again, it must be rememlbered that it may easily happen that a licensee may be de tected with his bar door unlocked wilth out having any intention of trading. A man may easily leave articles such as a hat or pipe in the bar on Saturday night which he may require on Sunday, and yet if he is caught "getting " them bhv Imeans of entering his b...
THE NORTH MELBOURNE FOOTBALL CLUB. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Courier and West Melbourne Advertiser — 31 July 1896
THE NORTH MELBOURINE FOOTBALL CLUB. (To the Editor.) Stn,-If the metropolitan papers have rectly reported the remarks of the delegates of the North Melbourne Foot ball Club at the last Association meeting, then truly the sooner the Committee of the club be requested to instruct those gentlemen that "charity begins at home," as it should do, before they accord any further support to the ridiculous proposition of the secretary of the Vic torian Football Association, the batter also it will ;e ,rrlthe creditor?s if the club, and all concerned; and further, the greater the probability of the club relessing itselflronuhe_fiuancial slough of despond in which it has been for over five years. Owing to the multiplicity of clubs competing for the premiership in later years, " the gates " have dwindled down to nothing, not only with our club, but with the majority of others, The movement in the direction of curtailment is one that requires earnest attention, and if you will permit me, I will e...

Ox -Monday evening last, a grand com plimentary benefit, in the form of a minstral and variety entertainment, was tendered to Mr. Chas. Schneider, who was severely injured by a fall from a building. The performance was un doubtedly the best of its kind ever wit nessed in the district, some of the lead ing artists in Melbourne having volun teered their services for the occasion. The progranmne was an excellent one in every respect-songs, recitation*, and dances, interspersed with humorous gags, jokes, etc., from the corner men, being the order of the evening. There was an enormous audience present, every avail able space being occupied. The mayor (Cr. Fogarty) was in the chair, and Mrs. H. Carroll presided at the piano. The programme opened with a min strel first part, Mr. Harry Carroll acting as interlocutor, Jantz Kohlman and Johnny Gardner as tambos, and George Gardner and Will Wynand as bones.

DEBATE TOURNAMENT Tii: debate tournament which Ihis been running in the metropolitan branches of the A.N.A. for many months past, was advanced another stage on Monday last, when the North Melbourne and Prabran branches met in the Prahran Toiwn Hall. The chair was occupiel by Mr. R. F. Tositcher, and the judges were His Honor Mr. Justice Hodges, Professor Harrison Moore, and Professor Gusman. Tlhe hall was filled-with a critical and appreciative audience. The subject sub mitted for discussion was "That a Re publican form of-government offers greater advantages to a civilised people than does a Monarchial form." North Melbourne affirmed, and Prahran denied. Mr. W. A. Watt, in introducing the affirmative side, laid bare the theories upon which Republicanism is based; all of which tended topronmethluLfreedom, combined withl prudence and stability, were the aims and attainments of civi lized republics. The teachings of history went to demonstrate that for primitive communities.Mon...
