MELBOURNE. Friday, August 4, 1876. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 8 August 1876

MELBOURNE. (PR~O 0o01 OWN COnnESPONDENT.) Friday, August 4, 1876. The more the now tyro tax is discussed, Sthlle stranger grow the objections to it, and there ls great probaibility that some of our - municipal bodies will take action to bring their views under the notice of the Govern mont. It is contended that horses are really rmore destructive to the roads than the whoels which oat an metal crushors, for an average saddle horse weighs nearly half a ton, and the concussion of this weight has to be a sustained by the metal every bound of tie r animal. Cattle and sheep in travelling also n materially help to churn up the soft patches s into liquid mud, and these escape altogether, a whilo bicycles and wheelbarrows will, if the act be administered in its Integrity, have to e contribute to the revenue, although they cannot be said to impair the roods. It is perhaps fortunate for the proprietors that traction engines arc now out of fashion, for under legislation which taxes according t...

ADELAIDE, S.A. August 5. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 8 August 1876

ADELAIDE, 8.A. FROM OUR OwTN CORRESPONDENT. August 5. I think I am correct in assuming that never in the annals of the South Australlen Logislature has so much real work been got through in so short a time as during tile past few weeks, and if hon. members continue in the same spirit it is notlikely that the present session will be a very long one. The fact of the matter is the most intelligent of the people's representatives will not now pay attention to the twaddle retailed by such men as Lindsay, Richards, Hardy, Coglin, and a few others.. who.. - hlthorto hlave retarded the progrose -of. work in our Parliament, and so these men c find it better to sit still and say nothing than to be laughed at for saying too much, and so the majority of the speochee delivered have boon short and to the point. I am glad to soe this state of affaire; it can not fall to do good. The work of the country is being pushed on, anil parties are satisfaed, and general contentment reigns supreme. May it l...

Main Road Districts Bill. (To the Editor of the Portland Guardian.) [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 8 August 1876

Main Road Districts Bill. (To the .Editor of the 1'ortland Guardian.) Stn,-Ln'toly thoere has boon a onnal meeting and a working man's mooting, and as thero is a little Bill before the Assembly to impose a fine of from .£1 to £3 per annum on the owneta of a dray, I'think that would stand another mooting. There are a groat many poor follows dragging out a misornblo existence in the Portland district, and all over the colony, who can rot afford to pay this additional tax, and I should like to soo you give vent to your foolings on this subject. The working man should have a voice in this and express their opinion before the Bill pasnas, asn it might be too late to grumble after. Sir Janmeos will make any class pay but the rich, and I am beginning to think that there was something in the stonowall, and' for that reason I will attend the meeooting in uniform and give throe gloans for Sir Jamie.
