Social Purity Lectures. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 19 April 1884

Sooial Purity Leoturise,. IT is rather a trite remark amongst men of modern times, that ministers of the gospel are extremely deficient in knowledge of the world, and in many nstances this has been made a reproach to them:.` Unfortunately there is some truth in the statement, and especially 'so when applied to the divines of some sections of the Christian Church. Their life seems to be lifted above the cares of the world, and to rest in some serene region undisturbed by mundane matters. Lately however we have had instances of reverend gentlemen, who live partly in this elevated legion, but who are ever ready to descend into the world of money-clutchers when their' own , pockets are concerned. This is to our minds really not a fault on the part of the ministers, In an age when the ministerial calling has become a lucrative, profession, when congregations are outbidding each other to secure the highest clerical talent for their pulliits, it is-not to. be wondered,i that -ministers -sh...

A TELLING CARICATURE. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 19 April 1884

A TELLING CARICATURE. - ' Puck " recently produced an admirable burlesque illus tration of the attempted interference of the United States in the Chili-Peru imbroglio. The cartoon represented two huge men-of-war, magnificently equipped, and bearing each respectively the name of power, overlooking contemptously an insignificant craft floating the American flag,with the question : ."Doe your mother'know you're out." So must all inferior articles appear, coming in the way of the great Wolfe's Schnapps.

WHAT IS WANTED. TO THE EDITOR OF THE INDEPENDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 19 April 1884

WHAT IS WANTED. TO THE EDrTOK OF THE INDF.OPE5DZrT. , S?SI,-You are not unfrequently urged by letters to carry on a crusade against trades in our midst, which to my way of thinking is absurd on the part of the agitators. What would _ Footscray be without manufactories, - andin some sense all are disagreeable i odours, from the Sugar Refinery downwards. Would' you permit me then to draw the attention of the said good citizens of Footscray to something of a really practical character? You want the part of the navigation called the Saltwater river, in which we are all interested, to be deepened and made navigable in reality. Let us try and induce the Harbor Trust to take the matter up, and arrange with the Government, i.e., the Lands department, to put the dred gings on our low-lying lands, say that valuable Piece at and below the old powder magazine, which would then be rendered really valuable by Pitting it to become sites for manufactories and houses ; or if the aforesaid good citis...

HOW NEIGHBOURLY !   TO THE EDITOR OF THE INDEPENDENT. SIR,--Allow me through you to call the attention of the ratepayers of Braybrook to the substance of a letter, which was ordered to be written by the Council: - On the 3rd of March we instructed our Secretary to send Mr. Derham a notice to pull down the fence that is obstructing the Devonshire road. This is not the first notice that he has had about fencing in the same road. We met again on the 7th of April, when Mr. Derham appeared personally, and said that he had received notice, but he had not removed the fence on account of some of the residents of Maidstone wishing him to leave it there ,as it would save their cattle being impounded. He also stated that he had got rid of the sheep, and he wished to live neighbourly." Now, Sir, I have seven teen acres in this block of land, and I told Mr. Derham that his horses were continually on my ground. He asked why didn't I impound them. I told him that I did not get my livi...
