THE HORSE, COW, AND PIG MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 11 December 1874
TIHE HORSE, COW, AND PItG MARKET. We are glad to see that the city authorities have at last awakened to the folly of the suicidal course they have been pursuing in relation to the market dues charged on stock sold in the new Horse, Cow, and, Pig Market. Having expended nearly £7,000 in establishing this market, it was but natural to sup pose that the Council would endeavor, by offeriqg greater inducements than those at present enjoyed by sellers of stoclr, to attract to it the whole of the Ml-elbournb trade. Instead, however, of followinig thlis sensible course, the city authorities took.a'directly opposite one, for we are informed that they fixed the tariff of charges-for market dues on' all cattle sold in the now market at about 100 per cent higher than they.'charged on cattle when sold in the private yards in the city, thus offering, as it were, a premnium to sellers of stock to continue to use the private yards in'preference to the Corporation Market, and as a natural result of ...

THE BRUNSWICK SURVEYOR. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 11 December 1874
TIHlE BRUNSWICK SURVEYOR. Notwithstanding the various attempts made by Councillor Stranger to oust M[r. MlcIvor, as Surveyor, that astute gentleman still retains his situation and like the "Old Man of the Sea," he has got his legs around tile neck of the Council, and very probable will retain that interesting position as long as his salary is punctually paid. Wo are not prepared to 'say that he has acted wrongly in the matter. Possibly if Mr. MIclvor was fond of assuming the character of a Spanish hidalgo, whose blood ;would rebel at the slightsst approach to an affront being placed upon him;he would have resigned before this, and scorined to have placed filthy lucre side by side with high pro fessional reputation; but Mr. McIvor is not a descendant of the Cid, buts shrewd canny Scotchlman, who .values a com fortable salary for more than the pos session of a romintic feeling of esprit do corps. .
