The South Bourke Standard. FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 28TH, 1862. [Newspaper Article] — South Bourke Standard — 28 November 1862

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 28Th, 1802. TieI: long looked-for Bill for regulating Road Districts has at length made its appearance, and is circulated for the information of mem bers of the Assembly. It is entitled "A 11ill to establish Road Districts and Shires, and generally to provide for the adminstra tion of local affairs out,of. Boroughs." It is very voluminous, containing no less than 315 clauses; and if we may judge from a cursory perusal, it is certainly an improve mont upon the old mode of procedure. No doubt, before it becomes law, it will be sub- 1 jLcted to many alterations, and may share the fate of other bills of a similar character by proving an abortion. The Bill provides that Road Districts al ready in existence shall be original districts ; but that any two, three, four, or five of them may join together and make one large dis trict; but it is imperative that all nowe eistricts formed after the passing of this Act shall contain at least forty square miles. Unlike the provisio...
