AN IMPORTANT OMISSION. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 9 October 1874
AN IMIPORiTANT OMdISSION. In the report of the deputation from .the Ilotham Council, which,waited on the Postmaster-General, and which ap peared in the " Advertiser" of last issue, the name :of! Councillor' Ryan was omitted, simply through an unintentional oversight. :othing would suit Coun cillor Laurens but 'nE should call at-: tention to'tiis"most important matter" on A?Mosday evening. With his thumb in his waistcoat, his cheeks glowing, and his spectacles poised at the extreme tip of his probocis, .he harrangued his fellow councillors somewhat after the fashion which Cruickshank . depicts Mr. Pick :wick, while addressinghisfellow students of human nature at the ever memorable club. - He was followed by Councillor Ryanr' wii appeared to' think :he, was treated in an unfair mannher, and looked very fiercely at the"unfortunate reporter who:was the unoffending cause of so much eloquence. being wasted.

THE LOAN. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 9 October 1874
THE LOAN. W Ve understand that, notwithstanding the unanimity which prevails ini the Brnnswick Council to borrow money at a high rate of interest, the ratepayers intend to test, in the Supreme Court, the legality of the course pursued by Coun cillors. TWre think it is highly neccessary thtt some action should be taken to restrain the local'authorities from pro. ceeding further in their suicidal course Thepresenes of a number of contractors at the Council table does not argue well for the manner in which the loan will be expended. It is well known that the Government are averse to the drainage scheme of the Council, and will not give any assistance towards this object, yet that body are obstinately bent upon raising the money at all hazards, and letting contracts for the work of drainage. Such conduct can bear only the worst interpretation, and in view of the recent disclosures in connection with other contracts, it is niost desirable that. a further effort should be made to bring th...

THE DEPUTATION TO THE POSTMASTER-GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 9 October 1874
THE DEIPUTA'TION TO THEE POSTMfASTEIR-G 'NERIAL. It was stated, in our issue of last week, that Mr. Curtain, when urging the claims of the Hotham Council in obtaining assistance from the Govern ment for the erection of post and:tele graph offices, asserted that " a rent was paid fop the building, used as a. post office in IRotham," This was evidently a mistake on the part of the hon. member. The building used as a post= office is the property of the postmaster, and no rent has been paid by the Govern. ment since Mr. Fitzgibbon has acted in that capacity--some twenty years.

PIfANTINO TREES:. A correspondent writiig on this subjeict says:-" Sir-I was pleased to see that you threw out a very sensible hint to the Borough Council about planting the lemington road with trees. I think the expeisie would be but trifling, while the boon? conferred on the inhabitants along this thoroughfire, and those who reside in the vicinity, would be. very great indeed. : ani sure that if it is a. question of nioney which interferes with the Council adopting your suggestion, the residents would willingly contribute a portion of the, funds' necessary for carrying out so desirable an object.-I am, Sir, your obedient servant.

INSPECTOR OF MEAT. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 9 October 1874
I.., INSPECTOR OF MEAT.2 . Now that the duty of appointing an Inspector of Meat lies:with the Hothamt Council, it is toe be hoped' that some pioperly .qualifed person will be ap pointed without delay. A portion of the salary of the ,officer should be de frayed by the butchers themselves, be causo they .save over £1100 per annum by removing to the Borough of Hotham, and they are likewise interested in pre venting any member of their association froh. offering diseased' meat for sale. At present we believe there is no super vision of any kind exercised in 'the Meat M1arket, and such a state of things shoild hot continue a day longer than can be helped.. The butchers are anxious to see the Inspector appointed, and the, public expect it.
