SPENT ON STREETS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Courier and West Melbourne Advertiser — 11 December 1896
SLiT o., s~iiEL-O. 'A i'1i~fe of expenditure under Inah" No. 8, 1891, has been submitted to the North Melbourne Council recently, showing the amounts expended on some of the principal streets of the town for the year ending 30th September, 1896.. We find that Bar wise-st. hls hid £21/18'- expended on it as compared with £31713/4 on Mac aulay-rd. and £104117/4 on Fleming ten-rd. In iconnection with the Iast named thoroughfare from the haymarket to the Flemington bridge is certainly a fairly long strip of roadway to maintain, although half its width is looked after by the city. Still some planting of and forming of island reserves has had to be undertaken, and the item put down to the Flemington-rd., is not open to so much objection. But £317 odd for the Macaulay-rd. as against the £20 note or so on Uarwise-st, is not so intelligible. The Macaulay-rd. starts from, say St. Michael's school and ends at Mi'ki'ts totel, for from the hotel to the railway station is blocked and, therefote, ...

At the meetintg of. the Braybrook Shire Council, on Monday, a letter was received comrplaining of the pollution of the Saltwater. river, by certain local slaughtering premtes.. Some members of the Council, however, appeared to think Footscray was responsible for the iinisance; but whether Footscray, Bray brook, or Maribyrnong isithe offender, the state of the river is a source of cott plaint year after year. The Essendon Rowing Cliabi?hsed t6 ~vix very indig nant over the slush they were compelled to practice and race in; and Mr. Deakin, M.L.A., h.is delivered several of hio florid speeches on the snbject-but there it ends. The condition of the river near Braybrook, last week, was disgusting; and it is additionally antioying to ang lers and others when it is affirmed by a gentleman, interested himself in the slaughtering business, that there is no need for these establishments to drain their deleterious matter into the river at all. The lime used in cleansing the slaughtering houses...
