COBURG ROAD DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 4 September 1874
COBURG ROAD DISTRICT. A, publi6 m'esting of ratepayers was held .on Tuesday evening, to protest against Coburg being annexed to the shires of Jika Jika or Broadmoadows. It is' inconceivable how any `ratepayer can.be found: willing to commit, moral suicide:in wishing the district to be made a simple riding without prestige or in fluence.' Whatever be?iefit is.derived from a separate existence would be extinguished when Coburg is joined to another body. The movement to create Cobirg a shire is a sensiibl one, and should be strongly supported by al? rate payeri ha~ving the welfare of the locality at heart.
THE CHANGE IN THE SITUATION [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 4 September 1874
TION Sir-- concluded my last letter by ox pressing a hope that the business of the IIotham Council would.in future proceed witlh order and speed. Such, however, was not the - case at the last meeting. The party of obstruction indulged in op. posing the confirmation of the minutes of the previous meeoting by. raising a non ilisical point of order. This gave rise 'according to your report, to an idle dis cussion of onoe hour and three quarters. "This discussion itself was out of order, .and should not have been permitted by the chair. The objection was that some .businoss, so called, had been done at the Iprevious meetiang after the Mayor had left the chair. The objectors would not =state whenocalled upon to do so, the na tlre of the so-called business, of which they complained. The reason for their roticen'ce was very apparent, as all the Council had done after the chair was vacated by the Mayor, was simply, that they expressed it as their opinion that the .Town Clerk having been leg...
LICENSING DAY. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 4 September 1874
LTCENS1NG DAY. - We observe, amongst the list of nppli cants for publican's licenses, the'name of an old and respected ratopayer of IIotham. Mr..Donovan will apply at the next meet ing of the IIotham Licensing bench, for a license to open an hotel in Queensberoy street, to be called theo Pier Point IIotel. Mfr. Donoran is the owner of the property, and has bad the interior entirely refitted and decorated; and as the premises are located in a neighborhood in which there is but limited hotel accommodation, no doubt hi' application will prove success ful. Even the most ultra Good Templar cannot object to a license being granted to a respectable, well-conducted hotel.
THE CONFIRMATION OF THE MINUTES. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 4 September 1874
THLE CONFIIR1T ATION. OF TIHE MINUTES. Sir--At the las mcoeting of the I[otham Council t question \va ruisba as tb the order or legality, of some,(so called) bus incss done at the previous ordinary meet ing of tle Contncil, after the Mayor had left the chair. The nituro of the busi ness thus objected to, consisted solely in reading a legal opinion given by standing connset in September, 1873, in which it was stated to be thoe Town Olork's duty to go on collecting 'half the cost of pave. mont freeom owners even without a resotlu. tion of the Council directing him so to do, after which readiln, the Council simply expressed an opinion that the Town Clerk should, ns legally sdviscd, proceed to collect. This closed the business of the meeting, after whlich the rough minutes were read by the Town Clerk, as directed by the 2nd clause of the standing orders. These minutes not having been read before the MIayor left the chair clearly shows that the fire remaining coencillors had ia perfect l...
STATE NIGHT SCHOOL, BRUNSWICK. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 4 September 1874
STATE NIGHT SCHOOL, BRUNSWICK. A ,Free Night School for a borough like Brunswick, where so many youths are employed during the daytime, must be a great boon. The Board of Advice have urged the matter on the ' Minister of Education for a considerable time past, and at last arrangements have been com pleted to open the school for three evenings every week. Mr.Sheppard, head teacher, commenced operations on Mon day last in the old Wesleyan Schoolhouse, and about 50 pupils were enrolled. On: Wednesday the number was increased, and in all probability there will- be at' least 100 in attendance before the month. is out.. We trust the high character, which the day school has taken,' will beL maintained in the evening classes, and that no complaints will be made 'of the, conduct of any attending. ,

North Melbourne Advertiser, AND CARLTON ADVOCATE. FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 4TH, 1874. HARBOR TRUSTS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 4 September 1874
AND CARLTON ADVOCATE. FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 4TH, 1874. HIARBOR TRUSTS. The joint committee on the Marine Board and Harbor Trust Bills have sent r in their report to-the Commissioner of Trade and Customs. The subject is an important one, and should the scheme as proposed become law it will ,materi ally affect large and important interests. e Part I. provides for a committee of 21. This if carried into effect will be usnworkable. Abdut seven would prove , ample, as the smaller number would be able to carry out their object in a much more effectual manner than the larger. The President of Land and Works should be ex-officio a member of the Board, because in a committee of seven the G-overnment would be amply represented with one g member only. The proposal to allow the chief merchants the privilege of nomi ' nating members on the Board is only initiating a system of class legislation which, in every respect, is objectionable. It would, in our opinion, be much better Sto allow every voter o...

Football Notes. D3Y UMPIRE, In the Royal Park on Saturday the North IMelbourne and St. Kilda clubs met for the third time this season. The lirst I match, played in the Royal Park was F drawn; both sides obtaining a goal. TThe t secotd'matclh (at St. Kilda) was won by North MIelbourne, who kicked two goals to St. Kilda's nil, but St. Klilda played well and the victory was by no means an easy one: Last Saturday's match, on the contrary, was a most decided ral away. St. Kilda, although they brought a strong team,and had a lively recollection of their precious defeat to goad them to do great t things had not at any time during the Ilttelt t?i h leitst possible chance of victory. D)uring the early part of the match, the North Melboui'ne had the advantage of a the wind, butthough easy chances were numerous, no goals were kicked. Htow eveoragainst the wind, after the change of ends, they (North Melbourne) were more successful. Robertson obtained two goals for tlictu before time was called,...

British and Foreign. In the case of Mr. Callan, M.P., against Mr. O'Reilly Dease, in which the de fendant was charged with libelling Mr. h Callan in an 'election address in Louth, and which has now occupied the Lord Chief Justice of Ireland, and a city special jury for some days, after three 1 hours' deliberation, the jury returned a d verdict for the plaintiff-damages, one farthing. It is anunounced that the late Mr. Cliff has by his will left £3500 to the Royal a Masonic Institution for Boys, and £3500 C to the Royal Masonic Institution for Girls, both under certain conditions, a which, it is said, will be agreed to. These sire by far the largest gifts that have ever yet been made to these institutions. Mr. Cliff was not a Freemason. A stone ginger-beer bottle loaded with gunpowder and nails, and with a lighted fusee attached, was thrown on July 4 into the bedroom of live brickmakors in a lodging-house at Miles Platting, near Manchester.

The world uses 250,000,000 pounds of tea, and 718,000,000 pounds of coffee every year. China furnishes nearly all the tea, and IBrazil more than half the colleo. It is reported that the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to animals recently had a servant girl arrested for beating an egg that happeued to have an unhatched clucken in it. " Two sweet pledges of affection l" cried the nurse, addressing the anxious husband on the stairs. " All," sighed he, " I was pre pared for the pledge but not for the duplicate." A Nevada paper, in speaking of a do ceased citizen, says--" le was a good man, but he had his little frailties, like the rest of us. 1oe sometimes bet on the wrong horse."
