No Title [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 30 October 1874

Sir-I saw in your last week's issue a letter writtecnby " Justice," in which he stated that the man who was put in piison because he refused to pay-an unjust fine for driving his horse across the road, on to a portion of land for which he had per. mission from the owner, was one of those guilty of " peculiar practices." Now Sir, I ask " Justice" if he ever knew this man to be anything but an honest, sober hard working man. I have known him over twenty years, and have always found him as stated by " Alpha" in your issue of the 10th inst; It would have been well if " Justice" hahd" taken the trouble' and measured the gutters in Brown street, before making such insulting, uncalled for remarks as he did about " Alpha" in Brown street. If ". Justice" can not see clbarly he better put his spectacles on when he goes to measure the gutters, and then he will see that "Alpha" is rihgt and that he " Justice" is decidedly wrong.

Iow, Sir, I don't know eitherof those per. sons, but I agree with Fair Play, because I know.that his statements are true. But I do not agree with Justice, because most of his statements are false, and quite un. called for. WVhoever Alpha is, his state. ments are quite correct About. the deep giltters in lrbown stbeet, and hle can af ford to laugh at Justice. I endorse all that Alpha stated about the man who was treated too bad, and thero was nothing in Alpha's letter to justify incendiarism as Justice would insinuate. I think that Alpha should hlea the thanks of all Hci. dolberg fot taking sp the case so man fully. I'wonder if Mar, Justice is one of the guilty parties reference is made to by F'air Play.
