LARRIKINISM. TO THE EDITOR OF THE INDEPENDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 9 February 1884

LARRIKINISM. TO Tile EDITOR OF TIIE INDErENDEN'T.I SIR,-At a Debating Society in Footscray, the subject being " Larrikinismu," rome of the members made use of very disparaging reularks re policemen generally, which I presume had special reference to those stationed in Foots cray. One member said that the police ought to speak more kindly to the larrikins than they do. Now fancy a remark like that comining from any intelligent man. Fancy a policemen going up to a mob of drunken youths who are making the night hideous with their oaths and yells,. whose only desire is to cover the pavement with tobacco juice, a.i to make it unsafe to walk on, and to-' slt with impunity respectable females goir by such as whistling after them, etc. F.lcy a police constable going to those lads and saying, `" Would you kindly move on." Do you think they would budge. No; not them. No espression?like that would move a tneetin. of the youths in question, when once business has commenced nothing of that style...

Disastrous Fire. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 9 February 1884

Disastrous Fire. Eatly on Friday morning the sound of the fire bell again aroused our residents, who had scarccly yet recovered from the excitement of tFe tw t last conflagrations rt the Apollo Cardle Works and Cleghorn's Tannery. In a few minutes a large crowd were on their way to the scene of the fresh disaster on the banls of Saltwater River. The Footscray Fire Itrigade were quickly on the ground, and active aid was rendered by willing hands to save property. It appears that sosme young men who live in the vicinity gave the first alarm of fire, which had broken out in the boat-shed of .lr. Fitles, glue manufacturer, anl rapidly spread over his premises. communicating fromn theuce to the large building of Messrs. Taylor andi Currie'.i wool-washing establishment. . The.hose of the local Brigade was found to be too short to connect with the nearest plug, which was on the other side of the Railway B]ridge and near the Apollo Candle Works, sv- little could be done in the way of attemp...

Loud Whispers. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 9 February 1884

Loud Whispers. lY NORTH WIND. That with the Nictholson street drain 41S feet high ! Footscray should be able to start a countetrtractionto the Niagara Falls. Perhaps some enterprising speculator will purchase the novel industry site, and run up a grand hotel for thie convenience of European visitors to the wonder. Somewhere about the "great middle" would suit. That they will be few and small-minded fry, who will withdraw their children from State or Sunday schools, because our clergy have nobly availed themselves of the oppurtunity afforded them by the Governent, of impartinr religi ons instruction to the rising generation after school hours. One swallow does not make a spring, nor one small fish a school of whales, and happtdy msorality-for trite religion is the essence of morality-is not at su,'h a low ebb in the borough as some may think, however much we mayneed spiritual eltrts to counteract the degrading tendencies of Walkerism and Salvationism.

Wyndham. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 9 February 1884

Wyndham.     [FROM A CORRESPONDENT.] The foundation stone of the new Presbyterian Church at Wyndham was laid on Tuesday 5th inst., by Mr. Thomas Chirnside of Werribee Park. There was a numerous attendance to witness the ceremony, which passed off very successfully. As usual on such occasions a bottle containing copies of the Melbourne daily papers,and various current coins, were deposited beneath the stone. A handsome silver trowel was presented to Mr. Chirnside, who per- formed the customary ceremony. The church is to be 66 ft. long by 33 ft. broad and 16 ft. walls. Bluestone is the material of which the church is to be constructed, with freestone facings. A handsome tower reaching to the height of 6o ft. rises from the north east corner. The interior fittings are to be of the most elaborate kind, and the general appearance of the building will be very handsome and im- posing.

FOTSCRAcY v. YARRtA Be?ND. The Footscray journeyed out to Yarra Bend on Saturday,'to complete the 'match; which was commenced the previous week. The' scores then stood Yarra Bend I 15; Footscray'7 wickets for 77.' On arriving there, it was found that a new match would have to be com menced, as the Beiders had three new men in their team. 'Nunweek, who acted as captain in the absence of S. English, who did not put in an appearance until four 'o'clock, lost the toss, and consequently had to take the field. Duncan and French were the first batsmen, and the, bowling was entrusted to Scott and Mitchell. Both were well on the spot, and runs came slowly. With" the score at 15, French was finely caught by Gatland behind the wickets, off Mitchell. Dr. Smith, who came next, was immediately bowled by'Scott. Play now became tedious, maidens' being the order of the day. To.relieve the monotony Larritt was tried in place of Mitchell, and a few overs later; Scott retired in favor of Nun-' week. . ...
