COUNCIL INTELLIGENCE. DONCASTER COUNCIL. MONDAY, FEBRUARY 23RD. Present: Crs. Sell (President), Zerbe, Tully, Smedley and Lawford. MINUTES. The minutes of the previous ordi- nary and special meetings were read and confirmed. CORRESPONDENCE. From the Fire Brigade Board, notifying Cr. Byrne's withdrawal of his nomination. Received. From S. Archer, resigning his posi- tion as engineer of the shire. Mr. Archer has accepted a position in the New South Wales Survey Branch of Roads and Bridges, and wished to be relieved of his duties as soon as pos- sible. Cr. Tully did not think it wise to let Mr. Archer go until they had some one to take his place. If Mr. Archer was going to stop in the district till next council meeting he might continue to act until that time. Cr. Zerbe moved—" That the agree- ment with the engineer terminate next council meeting." Cr. Lawford seconded and it was carried. From A. Marden, applying for a slaughtering license.

Local News. [Newspaper Article] — Reporter — 27 February 1891

Local News. The Doncaster Council seems to have grasped the situation with regard to the in- fectious diseases infesting that district. At their last meeting, when the report of the Health Officer was considered, instructions were given to see that precautions were taken to prevent the spread of these dis- eases. A request has been sent into the Central Board of Health to close the Don- caster East School for a time as sickness is prevalent in the district. We are sorry to record the death of Mr. Samuel Rutter, head teacher of the Doncas- ter East State school. It is only a few weeks ago that Mr. Rutter was transferred from Warragul to Doncaster East, and he now lies in the grave, from typhoid fever, contracted, so the Health Officer reports, at the Doncas- ter East school. The insanitary condition of the tanks and roof gutters of the school formed a feature in the Health Officer's report, which should receive prompt atten- tion from those whose place it is to see to such matters.

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Reporter — 27 February 1891

A vey bad precedent has been adopted in tihis colony, which has grown up with the nation, and which wo regret to say lhas become incorporated ill the internal management of Church and State, and has extended to public and private institution. We refer to the practice of sending to England for men who are reqlaired to fill the lead. ing positions in the land. If we re quire a governor, a bishop, a railway commissioner, a principal for one of our largo colleges, or a professor for the University, the rule is not to appoint a Colonial man, but to send to England for him. This has been tile customl as long as we can runolnl ber, and judging by appearances there is overy likelihood of this absurd and ridiculous custom being continued its long as the nation exists. If oven a specialist in the world of medicine is wanted to toll us what evils accue' from bad and inexperienced drainage, ho'has to bol brought fromn across the sea;. lt is almost incompreheuisible, but it is nevertliless true ...

Death of Miss Jane Serpell. [Newspaper Article] — Reporter — 27 February 1891

Death of Miss Jane Serpell. It is with feelings of the deepest regret that we record the death of Miss Jane Serpell, which occured at her residence, at Doncaster, on Tuesday night last. The de- ceased lady was the sister of Mr. Alfred Serpell of Box Bill, and Mr. Richard Serpell of Doncaster. As she had resided in this district for a period of thirty years, Miss Serpell had made a large circle of friends, to many of whom she was much attached. The deceased lady always took an active interest in promoting and advancing any and every Christian movement, and made it a rule of her life to do all she was able for the elevation and comfort of her fellow-creatures. She was a loving daughter, a kind and affec- tionate sister, and a generous friend to all in need of help. During the last three months, she has been a great sufferer—passing pain- ful days and sleepless nights: notwithstand- ing that she had the very best of skill and attention. When she was in the convulsions of death she beca...
