THE LEADER. JUSTICE TO ALL. SATURDAY, APRIL 14, 1888. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 14 April 1888

THE LEADER. ' .JUSTICE TO ALL. SATURDAY,V APRIL 14, 1888. WHAT might have :been a most seri ous and alarming accicent was. nipped in the bud by a mere chance last Mon day evening at the North Brighton railway station. It appears that a gatekeeper quite new to the work of attending to wicket gates had. been stationed there, and, notwithstanding the faot that his mate, whom he, had relieved had given him all necessary inatruotioins and, injuidotions, he threw the 'wicket gates open for pedestrians 'prior to the passing of the up. and down. trains which were then passing each other at the above named station. This little incident leads us to refer to'the in'convenience and loss of time caused to persons having occasion to cross the main roads and streets of Brighton as well as the Mordialloc and Oakleigh lines of railway where such roads or.streoots cross these lines con tiguous' to their respective stations. We have no fault to find with the gatokoopers, most, if not all of them being...

THE MORDIALLOC CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 14 April 1888

THE,MORDIALLOO CREEK. ; -4--e- The desirability of an improvenient' ,in, the Mordialloc Creek, by the construction of:ahoet-piling, was on Tuesday brought under the notice of the Commissionerr of Trade and Customs by a number of resi dents from; the district of Mordialloc and Mornington. At one time the sand in thie creek was distributed in different' places, and the result was that several ..irregular channels were formed. Sheet piling was put down on the Mordialloo side, and as a consequence the channel has tended in that direction. The in ..habitants of theodistrict'have had reasonto believe that were similar piling erected on the opposite side of the creek a permanent channel would be created, and a harbour of refuge formed for fishing boats, yachts, "&'.: This view of matter was urged upon the' attention of the Commissioner, it being stated that for nine months of the year, there would be a clear run of water, and that boats would be able to go in and' out with facility...

LOCAL ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 14 April 1888

! LOCAL ITEMS. i The only case at the Malvern Police Court last Saturday was that of E. Wilson, Inspector of Nuisances, for the Boroon dara Shire Council v. W. Woodmason for having left nightsoil spread upon his land situate within the Shire boundaries insuf ficiently covered to the danger of the public health The council was reproe eented by Mr. F. A. Atkyns, who produced a copy of the by-law which enacted that n ghtsoil spread on any land must be covered with a layer of earth at least of a thickness of nine inches. The defendant admitted that he had so deposited the nighteoil, but pleaded that instead of earth he had used stable manure for cover ing the nightsoil upon his land, and had pursued the same process for a length of time on land within the Malvern Shire boundary. Dr. Ecoles one of the magis. trates assured Mr. Woodmason that the covering referred to did not kill the effete matter, and as the offence was a broach of the by-law, he and Mr. Jones, the othqr J.P. on the benc...
