"HE WISHED TO ARGUE THE POINT." [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 23 October 1874

' "ll WISHED TO ARGUE TIIE POINT." .... .It may be taken for granted that that respectable burgoss, Mr. Dobsqn, is of a controversial turni of mind. ' A letter was received from him on Monday evening at the Council, 'complaining of the .- c6ssivel frontage witi whlich ho was hitbrgcd for payment.of half the cost of pavement. In lhis communication he named Councillor Laurenis is his authority for not paying more than his fair proper tion, and wound up by asking'the Council to permit the writer to " argue the opoint" with that Councillor., Councillor Carroll appeared to be willingto allow the mental combat to take place,: but Councillor Cook very properly took exception to tho tone of the i letter,, and) asked if they were " met to entertain 'a joke." Councillor Laureds maintaiied his seat'in. dignified silence; and very possibly thought tho let ter anything but ajoko.

THE BRUNSWICK SURVEYOR AND COUNCILLOR STRANGER. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 23 October 1874

THE i ..BRUNSWICK. .SURVEYOR AND COUNCILLOt STRANGER. Councillor Stranger sought, to induce the Councilto dispense with. the services of Mr: McIvor, the Surveyor. Tho'ar. guments-adduced in favor of his dismissal were somewhat 'forclblo,'and the Council eridently'thought' so, but. the o fact .of Councillor Stranger bearing: a personal antipathy to Mr. MoIvor, was the princit pal reason of the motion being lost. If it is found that MicIvor is not a suitable person, thei by- 'all' means lot him be dismissed, but, we protest, in the interest of fair play; against any Coainoillor using his posltion to gratify feelings of private revenge against a professional man. We have not the slightest sympathy with the Surreyor,ihnd care but little -whethebr he is'rotained'or'not, but we imagine in this case he'has niot been fairly dealt with, sid thoeCouacil acted but right in 'reject. ing Councillor Stranger's motion. ,

The drlver seizes the reinsandis dragged along by the horse, who is now :in mad career, some rlve hundred yards, when the man is thrown violently on the ground.

RAILWAY THROUGH BRUNSWICK. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 23 October 1874

RAILWAY THROUGH BRUTNS. Tho elaimi ;which this borougn has upon tjhe Government for consideration deserves attention apart altogether' from its merits as a locality forming part of the Outer Circle Railway schlome. It It may not be generally known that tile average consumption of firewood alone in the borough is more than one thousand Aix hundred tons per week, and the great bulk of this is carried past the town some three miles to be brought bhack again on drays. And whbn we add to this the fact that the return tralic in bricks and other articles" of local' 'manufacture would amount.to at least fire thousand tons per week, beside the large passenger.trade which must of necessity be accommo dated, we think that the advantages of this branch line must be apparent to all. A loop line to connect with the North M-elbourno ]Railway Station could also be made at a comparatively trifling out lay. WeVo trust that. the united eiforts of the metropolitan members will be devoted 'to carrying o...
