DRIVING CATTLE AND HORSES IN PROHIBITED HOURS. (To the Editor of the Courier.) [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Courier and West Melbourne Advertiser — 16 October 1896

I would likelto know how it is that izi North Melbourne cattle are oftenh Sdriven through -the 'streets, eslcpecially' Arden-street and Eiiznbeth-street North; at all hours of.tihe day. If there' is' a bye-law here it should be enforced, and if there is not, one should be passed. While on this question I might draw attenti...
