Connor's.in the last issue of your valued contemporary, addressed to our piscatorial patriarch, however sceptical we may have been previously, we must'now admit that "enuine disinterestedness and philanthropy ?s still a potent power amongstus, and when these qualities, Mr. Editor, are backed up by sweet, retiring modesty, such as is evinced throughoit this affecting document, I cannot help being quite satisfied that these ' patriots," "political enemies," and "scribes "of Colac are acting from "per sonal motives" in misconstruing and vilefy ing the pure and unadulterated representa tive of whom we-are so proud. Where is there another man in Victoria that combines the philanthropy and large heartedness of a Howard with the shrinking (I had nearly said shirking). and retiring modesty of a Cowper.

THE PUBLIC ROADS AND THE COMING SHIRE ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 16 June 1876

T?'E PUBLIC ROA.DS AD THE COTMIrNG ,SHIRE ELECTIOrS. Are the municipal constituencies, espe cially in the western districts, aware of the exceptional importance that attaches to the coming shire council dections in. August next, in view of the vexed question of the closing of the public roads ? If they are not, the sooner they become awake to theserious considerations involved the better. The land monopolists are already on the alert for the purpose of defeating what they apprehend may be the consequence of the administration of the Local Government Act, in the matter of the public roads, by the new shire coun cils, should these be composed of "good men and true," who -would scorn to be mere tools. The measures which the land monopolists and road appropriators rely upon for effecting their designs are, first a system of differen tial rating for the various ridings of shires, and next, the severance of shires. Under a differential system of rating the large pro prietors expect that t...
