A Progressive muni cipality* Thus the Orange Advocate : ' Molong, one of our smaller suburbs, is a pro gressive little municipality, but the aldermen are not likely to injure their constitutions over tbe amount of work done in looking after the town. In ! their balance sbeet for tbe past half year we ^notice that the total rates received were £84i 18s 4d, and out of this amount the large sum of £3 12s 7d was expended in works, services and improvements to tbe borough. There should be no squabbling in Molong ^between the aldermen as to what street should be looked after first when the large sum of about 2s lOd is spent every v^eek, wet or fine, in keeping the streets and footpaths in repair.' : The .Advocate critic should bave went further.
