Insure. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 16 February 1884

Ln ' s Iure It'isivith no intention to check the flow of benevolence, but rather to incul cte' habits of forethought and provid ence, that we again refer to the subject of Life Assurance. Surrounded as we are by a working population, liable to accident, mutilation or even sudden death, as well as the ordinary risk of sickness, it cannot be too strongly pointed out that there is a serious re sponsibility resting on the man, and a grevious wrong done to the wife and family by the cruel and selfish neglect to make provisions by Life Assurance for the helpless ones, who are left behind when the bread-winner has been taken away. In how many cases, no sooner has the husband been maimed, or has lost his life, than subscription-lists are at once required, and the charity of the district invoked on behalf of the bereaved, who would never have been left in that position had even the commonest precaution and forethought been used. It would require only sixpence or a shilling a week, invested i...

What will the End be? [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 16 February 1884

What will the End be? The late disaster in the Soudan, and the censure passed in the House of Lords upon. the foreign policy of the English Government, are shocking illus trations of the complexity and intricacy of the interests involved in -what is called by diplomatists, "upholding the balance of power." Turkey in Europe and Egypt have been sore trials to English and Continental statesmen for generations, and now that so much British capital is sunk in the Suez Canal, and such an immense tonnage of Anglo-Saxon vessels, have to pass up the :Mediterranean, after such an enormous expense in blood and treasure to secure the fort of Gibraltar, and the key to that sea, after, in fact, about a centuryof plotting, planning,fighting and spending money to keep standing that played out old swindle,' the Ottoman Empire and its appendage, Egypt, there is now ,another war. on hand in the Soudan, and Britain must step in again and lay down the'lives of many of her brave sons, and tax the remaind...

The Independent "ONWARD AND UPWARD." FOOTSCRAY, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 1884 Our Condition. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 16 February 1884

"ONWARD AND UPWARD." FOOTSCRAv, SATURDAY, FE.IRRUARY 16, 1S84 Our Condition. THE councillors. are.. to- be.. compli mented upon their evident desire to fully understand the position in which the Borough stands, with regard to its existing loans and indebtedness. From the report, laid before them at last meeting, it will be seen, that a sunm of over 9?oo per annum has to be set aside for repayments of principal and interest on a debt, which. may be stated as £8,700 at the present date, with interest accruiing at six per cent. There is apparently' a sum of about £6oo for payments towards the reduc tion of 1876 loan, which should be pro vided for in the current municipal year. :.It is not of any service to. review the past, or to discuss what might have been done to improve the finan cial position.. We have to deal with the present, and it is certain that if ever a largely_ increased amount of "capital was required for expenditute upon urgeitly needed Public Works it is wanted now. Our...

Noxious Trades. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 16 February 1884

Noxious Trades. As some doubt seems to exist in several cases as to what are noxious trades not particularly or clearly defined; we are informed by the Secretary of the Shire of Braybrook that the following is the interpreta tion put thereon by the Crown Law Offcers: t. Chemical Works-A Noxious Trades. 2. Lithofracteur Works-Not a Noxious Trade. 3. Meat Preserving Works-A Noxious Trade if boiling down is carried on. 4. Slaughter Houses, and Abattoirs where leased-Not a Noxious Trade. 5. Piggery-A piggery is a place where pigs are kept as a business for the purpose of sale. The Bacchus Marsh Shire Council, at a meeting on 12th January, passed a resolution that slaughter houses in the township be regarnted as noxious trades. This, of course, in the face of the foregoing is utura rir'r. The Wyndlham Shire Council seem also sorely exercised as to what is to be done with the places where heaves are converted into beef and sheep into mutton. Who steals my purse, steals trash, 'tis some. c...

THE LOOKOUT. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 16 February 1884

THE LOOKOUT. 'Look out down these, for I'm about to shooL-. YANKur Paos. In reading the Home letter of a daily paper my eye was caught, the other day, by the words "A severe chastisement inflicted on the Duke of Marlborough by the Queen," and I at once prefigured in my mind the august lady standing with a broomstick-handle over the kneeling peer, who is said not to be too good to his wife. But to my astonishment the " chastisement" amounted only to Her Most Gracious Majesty refusing to accept from the hands of the new duke, his father's insignia of the Order of the Garter, and ordering him to send them through the Lord Chamberlain. I must confess I felt disappointed as I had imagined that a " severe chastisement of a Marl borough," even if hq was not an extra good one, would have made the "Proud Sarah" and the first Duke turn restlessly in their graves. However, I am glad it was no worse than a good wigging that was given, and hope it will have a salutary effect, and that he will be...

VERACITY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE INDEPENDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 16 February 1884

VERACITY. :T THE EDITOR OF TIHE INDEPENDENT. SIR,-Your contemptible contemporary from the " Fishing Village," contains an account of two young men leaving a pony outside a well. known hostelry in Footscray, while they were enjoying themselves, also the pony objecting to such late hours, left for up country by the nearest route. For the information of the reporter for the paper in question, I beg to state that the occurence took place at an ex. ceedingly early hour in the evening, and that there was only one young man travelling with the pony, also that the pony did not leave of its ovln free will, but was unhitched from the fence by some scoundrel, who used it apparently for some hours. It would be as well for this newsmonger, whose facts are like his secretorial figures, to seek a little truth, and not flounder so much in fable, as it is just as easy to get astray in giving an account of a case like this ;,i t is to attempt to quote or translate foreign words or phrases; and he evi...

Loud Whispers. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 16 February 1884

Loud. Whisper?s. BY NORTH WIND. That those who imagine the sporting ladies, who are running the Cricket Bazaar, are resting on their oars are vastly mistaken. We know Webster's eulogy on the'sex, and are assured that the all-round robbery will be the biggest he borough will ever be able to boast of. That it is powerfully mean, spiteful, and shortsighted on the part of the Salvationists to pitch into the poor "devil" so unmercifully. If they succeed in capturing his stronghold, and taking permanent possession of it, their business will be spoilt as they cannot get along without him. That the great 'Muff Match, on Saturday next, to celebrate the opening of the 'navilion, will be worth witnessing. Some of the wives are already ordering baskets and sacks, even preparing their sackcloth, to carry home the remains oif the dlear dep;rtld. Of the Counci team it is said, that the Mayor may be there, but he won't be about when the ball is hovering aiound ; that the brother Mitchell though lon...
