Letters to the Editor. THE STATE SCHOOL. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 4 December 1874
Letters to the Editor. TIIE STATE SCIIOOL. Sir-A public meeting, on requisition, was called by the late Mayor, of the rato payers, to ascertain the reason for the delay in erecting State Schools in Brunswick. The Board of Advice put in an appear ance on the occasion, and sought to regard the mooting as arefleotion on them solves. After considerable discussion the mooting was adjourned for a fortnight. This adjourned mooting was never held. From the names on the requisition, I did not expect this inquiry to be so easily barked. lWhy do we not get our State school? A largo rental of £100 per an num is paid for the old Wesleyan Chapel, a very objectionable place on many grounds for a State School. I hope, for the sakesakeof our children, that the Board of Advice will more in this matter. Your's very sincerely, November 27, 1874.

AND CARLTON ADVOCATE. FIIDAY, DEOEttIBtllt 4Irn, 1874. RUNNING SUNDAY TRAINS. It was very bad taste on the part I of Mr. Gillies, tile Minister of Railways, after he had given an implied pro mise, through the permanent head of the department, that the application of the Spiritualists for a train oin Sunday would be favorably received, subsequently to revoke it. - Mr. Gillics hay loudly declared in the Assembly thatt it was simply on financial grounds that lie opposed the running of trains on Sunday ; yet, when an application is receivrd from a gentleman representing upwards B of 3,000 people, who wished to enjoy a picnic on the Sabbath, some underhand influhmce is brought to bear on this so-called independent Minister, and he is quickly made to subside into a more cypher. It is lnt a pleasant predicament to be placediun-thatof a man compelled to " eat dirt." No one would have objected to the Spiritualists enjoying themselves on a Sunday exgept a few bigoted admirers of Dr. Cairns; a...

The 18th anniversary of the above lodge was celebrated on Wednesday evening, the 2nd of December, at the lodge rooms, and proved in every respect a thoroughly enjoyable evening. The various toasts were proposed and responded to in the most enthusiastic manner, and the banqu t reflects the greatest credit on the worthy host (Mr. Weaver, of the King's Arms lHotel) as the elaborate and tasteful manner in which the tables were decora. ted and the more substantial viands pro vided, elicited warm coimmendation.

LARRIKINISM. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 4 December 1874
LARUIlKINISM. No person has the slightest sympathy with the young vagabonds who are generally known as the "larrikin " class. They are destructive pests to society, and as such should be dealt with. But we protest, in the name of common sense, against including all classes of the colonial youth in this category. Yet if the Youths' Criminal Bill, recently in troduced into the Council, becomes law, any respectable young man who may be possessed of the dangerous gift of too much animal spirits, will be liable to be arrested, and receive a flogging. It will simply rest with the individual who presides on the bench whether a boy is to be degraded for life for the committal of some trivial offence or not. When it is considered how often ignorant men, unsuited for the position both by lack of education and a want of knowledge of the law, are placed in the commission of the peace, it is easy to understand the frightful use which might be made of entrusting this class of persons with the fre...
