MONDAY MORNING, MAY 21, 1883. SQUbESTIo whicli is much exercising tho minds of the ppublic, and upon which there has been much discussion, especially in Melbourne, is as to the propriety and advisability of openiing, oii Sundays, theo Public Library. Much is now being said and written oin the siubject, and althoulgh there is a diversity of opinion upon this vexed question, there can be little doubt but that the majority of the residents of Melbourne'aro favorably inclined to try the experiment of allowing those who have a desire to improve in imental culture,; an, opportunity of, availing themselves for that purpose, of the only day which they can devote to the pur pose: The opponents'f oth proposal are, front coscientioubs motives, loud in the denunciations of any act, which in their opinion, would be a', violation of the Sabbatarian lcharliacter of the LorId's Day; Mainy 'of themi would condemn us onithe first day of the week to a life obf austerity; if niot of ascotism,and notwit...

Mr. Bushe for plaintiff, Mr. Greene for defendant. Mr Bushe in opening the case for plaintiff briefly explained to the jury that Glassford had, through Wilson, his overseer, in May last, got Laird to go as a surety with himself for a boy named McDonald, committed to take his trial in the October following, and that to free Laird from any loss in case of McDonald not appearing gave him his post-dated cheque to use in such case, which was to be returned if not required. Laird had cashed it and appropriated the money. McDonald had answered to his bail, and instead of returning the cheque Laird had cashed it and used the proceeds, to prove which he called &nbsp; &nbsp; George Frederick Wilson, who de- posed - I am overseer for Mr Glassford. When McDonald was committed last May and allowed bail, I asked Laird to b...

SUNDAY CLOSING OF IRISH PUBLIC HOUSES. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 24 May 1883
SUNDAY CLOSING OF IRISH PUBLIC HOUSES. In the House of Lords a short time ago a bill was passed which will, no -doubt, give unfeigned pleasure to those of whose opinions Sir Wilfred Lawson is the most strenuous advocate. It is a bill which will for the future close public-houses on Sunday's throughout the length and breadth of Ireland. It will be recollected that in the year 1878 a measure was passed for a limited period embodying the principle of Sunday closing in Ireland. It was strenuously opposed by a compara tively strong minority in the House of Commons, and it was urged that if it became law it would produce evils even greater than those which it sought to remedy. It was said that it, would promote the production of illicit whisky, that bad spirits would be sold to the Irish peasant in unlicensed houses known as " shebeens,", and that men would be tempted to lay in a stock of whisky on a Saturday night in order to anticipate the threatened "drought" of the following day.
