INSPECTION OF OXFORD-STREET: [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 20 January 1886

INSPECTION OF OXFORD STREET: The following is a report of the Mayor upon the wood pavement in Oxford-street: The pavement has been laid for about 2 years, and was found to be in good condi tion. The caulking was sound, well filled to the bottom, and bituminous, as it should be to kcop out the wet. The float ing was hard and durable, and the con creto firm and compact.. The wood blocks Wvrdr perfectly sound, and not worn in any appreciable degree. The greatest fault in this street is the same as in all other streets where the trams are laid by Go vernment, and which has been pointed out over and over again. The cross-sleepers, whether they be underwood blocks, stene pitchers, tarred, metal, or macadam, cause any of them to spring up above them by the vibration of the many motors, and nothing can prevent these streets being spoiled until cross-sleepers are done away with. Elizabeth-street was found to be in a very unsatisfactory condition as the run ning rail is, in most cases, 2in. b...

MELBOURNE. MONDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 20 January 1886

MELBOURNE. [vo-t oUn OWN coannrsroNDNT.] MoNDAY. The announcement of the retirement of Dr. Moorhouso from thoe discharge of his episaopal duties here has been received by the community with a feeling of surprise and pain, which has not been suffered to mar the desire to raise to his talents a monument, by subscribing liberally to some good work, to be associated with his name. Although the character of the testimonial has not yet been determined on, the fifty-guinea cheques are already rolling in, and the subscription is pretty sure to be worthy of wealthy Victoria. The feeling of pain which has been occa sioned at the intelligence that he had jumipdd at the opportunity to quit us has been caused entirely by Dr. Moorhouse's own acts: It was known some five years back that effortsewere being made by Dr. Moorhouso's friends to secure his transla tion to an English See, and about the middle df 1885 intelligence arrived in the colony that .these were about to prove successful..

SEAMEN AND PERMITS. (To the Editor of the Globe.) [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 20 January 1886

SEAMEN. AND PERMITS. (To the "Editor of the Globe.) Sir,-I wonld ask you to insert this let- ' ter in justice to the seamen of the Aus tralian Colonies, in favour of their protest against the thoughtless way that permits 'have been issued from different shipping offices of the colonies, and the danger to the shipowners and. public .during the strike of the wharf labourers and coming out of the seamen. In the first place, the , seamen who, by, their experience, : know 'the incompetency : of' those that - have not learnt the duties of a seaman and the uselessness of men who have ahipped to fulfil the duties: that were 'required of them when called: upon to perform that-duty, or any 'duty which requiired the showing of that they' were competent men in the case of life and property being at stake. I think I shall be able to show to' the public and th'e shipowners the fallacies' of engaging men' who are unable; to perform with skill or alacrity the work entrusted to them. A' case -has oc...

A LADY'S LETTER FROM MELBOURNE. SATURDAY, JAN. 16. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 20 January 1886

A LADY'SL.ETTER FRONI IMIELBOURNE. SATURDAY, JAN. 16. The city is tolerably empty justunow. The summer exodus to the seaside has beguh. Everyone, who can manage it, 'is watching the sad sea wavesandfancying himself cool. It is cool nowhere. The atmoesphere is stifling at present, and we 'arelonging to follow the immortal advice of SydlneySmith. Everybody left in Melbourne was at tlhe continental concert held in the Zoo logical Gardens last Saturday. These open-air concerts have been a great sud cess, though. carping critics, who have heard the real thing on the German Black Forest, say that the Australian element far outweighs the continental. The band was under the able conductor ship of Horr Julius Siede. The music was excellent, a clarionettc solo being specially good. Pretty programmes printed; in red on yellow paper were distributed. They were headed with a " Kate Green away" group, with Herrick's lines "Gather ye roses while ye may," printed on the side, and a corresponding Ge...

GLEBE MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS. MR. J. MEEKS, M.P., FOR FOREST LODGE WARD. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 20 January 1886

GLEBE MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS. ant. J. MEEKS, rM.p., FOR FOREST LODGE WARD. At the Globe Town Hall, last evening, there was a large attendance of the rate payers to hear Mr. John Meeks, IM.P., who is a candidate in opposition to the retiring alderman, Mr. Percy Lucas. Mr. FIELD occupied the chair, and intro. duced the candidate. Mr. MIEns said he had come forward at the request of a number of ratepayers to* contest the seat with Mr. Lucas, because he believed the sanitation of the Globe re quired more attention than it had hitherto received. Let them take the question of nightsoil. There were about 3170 closets in the municipality, and it cost fully £4758 per annum to keep them clean. He thought some better arrangement than this by sew erage could be made, and he was averse to glving any firm a contract extending over a number of years for the doodorisation of the nightsoil, as proposed. If this business was so profitable as it.hadbeen represented to be, twelve months would be quitelong...

SHIPPING OFFICE ABUSES. (To the Editor of the Globe.) [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 20 January 1886

SHIPPING OFFICE ABUSES. (To tho Editor of the Globe.) Sir,-I write to thank you, in the first place, for your independent and manly leader of last Sunday, te the case of the Melbourne wharf labourers. It is the first time since I have been in Sydney that I have had the pleasure of reading such a truly democratic article in any Sydney daily; or, in fact, in any Sydney news paper, except the Bulletin. Your paper, in my opinion, deserves the support of every trade-uniohist. In the second place, I wish, sir, with your permission, to refer to a letter by " A Member of the Seamen's Union." It is a well-known fact that not only during the late strike, but all through the piece, affairs at the Go vernment shipping offices have been car ried on in a very loose manner-a manner such as would not be tolerated outside these colonies; and I consider it is high time that some of our legislators asked why such things are permitted. In all other portions of the British do minions,, there are very st...
