CO-OPERATION IN HOTHAM. To the Editor of the Advertiser. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 13 August 1873
CO-OPERATION IN IIOTI1A21. To the Editor of the Adeertiser. Sir-As the subject of co-operation is comparatively now to Victorians, and con sequently but little understood, permit me, through your columns, to explain as briefly as possible the system on which co-operative stores are founded, and the benefits resulting to the industrial classes by their establishment. Co-operative Associations are combinations for mutual aid and protection. A number of persons associate tlhemselves together and agree to contribute each at small suns to a general fund for the purpose of purchasing food and clothing of the best qualities at the lowest possible prices. This principle of co-operation, applied to the creaton of pecuntiary personal interests, mutst, under proper iniiaageimenut, result in great advan tage to tiesu elwho associate for that pur. pose. Yet, to make the co-operative lmovemnent successful, there must, in the first place, be unreserved individral cosn lidence, and in the second so...

North Melbourne Advertiser, AND CARLTON ADVOCATE. WEDNESDAY, 13TH AUGUST. THE WESTERN SWAMP. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 13 August 1873
AND CARLTON ADVOCATE. WEDNESDAY, 13rn.AUGUST. THE WESTERtN SWAMi'. A public meetingp convened by tie Mayor of Hlotham in answer to p requisi tion from the ratepayers, was to hare taken place in the Town Hall on the evening of Vcednesday last, but owing to the in clemency of the weather and the fact of two wards in the borough being in the throes of their annual election, the attend ance at the hour specified was not very numerous, and thle ~seeting was adjourned until Thursday next, the 14th instant. The objects which the gentlemen' who inaugurated the movement have in view are the eliciting of an expression of public opinion upon the progress report sent in to the Government by the Low-lying Lands Commission, and the formation of a league in Hlotham, having an object similar to the West Melbourno Improve ment League. This latter body aims at the reclamation of the swamp, by which not only would the present intolerable nuisance be abolished, but about 1,500 acres of land could be ut...
FOOTBALL NOTES. FIRST SIXTEEN CARLTON V. SIXTEEN NORTH MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 13 August 1873
FOOTtALTL NOTES. BY ScIMM-AGE. FIRST SIXTEEN CARLTON V. SIXTEEN NORTIH M LLBOUIRNE. A match was arranged to be played in the RIoyal Park last Saturday afternoon, between the North Melbourne and East Melbourne clubs; but the latter club noti li-d th,-y would be iuable to play in con sequence of their inability to get a team together. Fortunately at the end of the week nmatlch was arranged to be played between ten picked men of the Nsorth AMelbourno club, and the same numbler of the Collingwood club, against the first twenty of the Carltori. Considerable in terest was evinced in the match, and con sequently a goodly. muster of people wended their way towards thie Park, in order to have an idea of how the juniors would play against the crack team of the Carlton club. On nmy arrival at the ground I found that only four of the Collingwood club had turned up to play--two of them being second twenty men-and that an arrangement had been made by the cap tains of the two teams to play sixteen...
Tales and Sketches. "PIE." [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 13 August 1873
Tales and Sketches. "PIE." fly GEORGE AUGUSTUS OALA. TriE real social curse of the Atlantic States is pie. In the \Vest it is pronounced-" poy," and the backwoodsmen are fond of it; but a man who lives in a log-hut and is felling trees or toiling in the prairies all day long, can eat pie with impunity. It is in the North and in the East, in cities, and townships, and manufacturing districts, where dense populations congregate, and where the occupations of men, women, and children are sedentary, that an unholy ap. petite for pie works untold woes. There the pie fiend reigns supreme; there he sits heavy on the diaphragms and on the souls of its votaries. The sallow faces, the shrunken forms, the sunken eyes, the morose looks, the tetchy temperament of the Northerners are attributable not half so much to iced water, candies, tough beefsteaks, tight. lacing, and tobacco-chewing, as to un bridled indulgence in pie. New England can count the greatest nurmbers of votaries to this deleterio...

MAL-PRACTICE IN THE HOSPITAL. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 13 August 1873
MAL-PRACTICE IN THE HOS PITAL. The committee of the Melbourne Hos pital have of late been indefatigable in &nbsp; reducing the resident medical staff to the &nbsp; status of indoor apprentices, and the pro. fessional gentlemen have succumbed to the pressure. Would it not be more con duciveo to the welfare of the charity if, &nbsp; instead of supervising the conduct of these officials on occasions when an infraction of the rules regulating the hours when the doctors shall say their prayers and go to bed has been committed, they turned their attention to glaring cases of mal-practice which occasionally arise? When patients die, the form of a coroner's inquest is gone through, but do any of the committee ever attend these inquiries in order to post themselves up in the inner history and working of the institution? We opine &nbsp; not. They are content to read at their breakfast table the very contracted notices of the coroner's doings which appear in the...

The election came otl'on Thursday last, and resulted in the re turn of the old members by large emajori ties. The election was a very tame affair- little or no excitement-no big iposters" with the inevitable " Vote for tlrown, or .Tones, or Robinson,' as the case mightbe. No cabs perambulating the streets, carry ing flaming placards outsideo and false " friends" snside. No noisy loafers, no bawling demagogues, no drunken rowdics--nothing of the sort..

GRAND DISSOLVING VIEWS OF THE LIFE OF CHRIST. Mr. Raven will exhibit his grand dis solving views of the "Life of Christ" in the Wesleyan. School Room, Howard Street, Ilotham, .on rcdnesday evoienng next, as will be seen by an advertisement in our columns. As the entertainment is to be given for the benefit of the Wesleyan Sunday School and the charities of Miel bourne, we hope the large room referred to will be crowded. ~Vo understand that nearly 800 persons attended the exhibition last week at Carlton, and we believe the entertainment is in every respect a credit able one, and reflects very great credit upon the exhibitor, Mr. Raven. The Rev. i W?. 11. Fitchett will deliver the lecture, and the Sunday School choir will sing the beautiful music connected with the lecture. i
BOARD OF ADVICE, HOTHAM. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 20 August 1873
BOARD OF ADVICE, IIOTItH M. Councillor Clarke will more at the next meeting of the IIotham Council that it is desirable to rescind a former resolution respecting the Board of Advice. In the discussion which is likely to follow the whole question may possibly be again opened up. If so, it is to be hioped that the good sense of the majority of the councillors will prevail, and the matter be disposed of in accord ance with the wishes of the great body of the ratepayers. As there can be no principle involved in refusin' tile use of the building, it would be muchl better to allow Councillor Clarke's motion to pass without comment. It would only be a graceful concession to public opinion for the members who formerly opposed the granting of the hall to the Board of Advice to cease further opposition.
