THE POOR-BOX. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Courier and West Melbourne Advertiser — 11 September 1896
TiE Poon-uox.-Cr. Carter remarked at the meeting of the Council this week, that lie thought too much money went into the court poor-box, which might be diverted into other channels. Cr. Gar diner considered that the poor-box was a useful treasury in cases of necessity among the destitute of the town. It was, lie said, as its name designated the poor's box. Certainly there is a great deal more money put by defendants in both civil and criminal cases into the above-named recepticle at the North Melbourne court than any other we are aware of. A well-filled poor-box is by no means an undesirable thing, but the nroTrey should be judiciously expended The general impression is that the Clerk of Petty Sessions gives cash out of it, on receiving a written order fromt a justice. It would be interesting to know the average amount donated to the box for twelve months, with a general state ment of its disbursement,

BARWISE-ST. AGAIN. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Courier and West Melbourne Advertiser — 11 September 1896
BARiI SoE-oT. AsAIN.-This thorough fare threatens to take tile place of tile Moonee Ponds Creek in local journalismt as regards the frequency of the nececsity to refer to it. At the Council meeting this week Cr. Carter said that it needed attention at its junction with Flemington road, and Cr. Petrie urged that it should be swept immediately after a drizzling rain, as is Ireland-street, West Mel bourne. It has been pointed out again and again that what the surfa;e of the street really wants is re-filling and raising from the railway bridge to the Flemington-road, and -no tinkering here and there will be of the slightest avail. If we have a wet spring and nothing is done to it, Barwise-st. will be in a fine mess when the Novem ber race week comes on, and the, occu pants of vehicles going to the 1)erby nd Cup, as well as the thousands of ;pedstrians ,will certainly anatlihematise the North Melbourne Council.
