The Stadium Contoversy. SUPPORTED BY RATEPAYTERS. The erection of a boxing stadium in Victoria street, Brunswick, was the subject of a discussion at a meeting held under the auspices of the North Brunswick Progress Association on Sa- turday night. Mr J. Hamilton moved: That the action of the council in granting permission to erect the sta- dium in Victoria street be approved by this meeting of ratepayers.
