PROSPECT AND SHERWOOD. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 17 November 1888
PROSPECT AND SHERWOOD. Wixir tlio assistance of Aldermen Auiey, Tii'.ioxr', Kenyon and JPaton, Mayor Joxks, of Prospect and Sher wood, has succeeded not only in ogre giously stultifying himself, but in com mitting tho Corporation over which he presides to an act of unquestionable, aarshness. Tho suspension and dis missal of Council Clerk McManis ' con stitute that act. Mayor Jones's state ment to tho Council about his having taken logal advice on tho matter was a most disingenuous one ; since it was evidently made with tlio design of in ducing the mtepayors to believe that ho had boon definitely advisod by an emi nent firm of solicitors to suspend Mr. MoMaxis. Whereas, tho firm in ques tion simply i'.l vised Mr. Jorsiis that undor tlio Mu .icipalitios Act a Mayor has power to suspend a Council Cleric. Possibly there is not a single ratepayer in tho Prospect and Shorwood district but is porfectly awaro of tho fact that a Mayor can suspend a Council, Clerk if ho have a mind to. Most s...

'We are afraid that but vory few pooplo will bo in any way surprised at what they may read in another column oE this issue of tlio At:cras, with regard to tlio state of tlio Hospital finances ; inasmuch, as for soino timo past, the affairs of that institution havo boon steadily going down hill— for reasons, which if not understood oy its authorities, are pretty accurately roclcOncd up by at loast seven persons out of every ton, whom one speaks to on the subject. It appears that whilst tlio annual cost of maintaining the Hospital has fallen but very slightly sinco 1880, tlio rovenuo of that institu tion has lamentably ctccroasod— mainly in tho items, 'Subscriptions'; 'Gov- ernment salsidy ' (which rises and falls as tho amount of subscription rises and falls); and 'Paying Putionts.' As a natural consequence of this falling off in revonuo, tlio Hospital's bank account is overdrawn, an...

KYDALMERE BRIDGE. Me. F. Fabnell, M.P., has received the fol lowing1: — 'Department of Public Works, Sydney, oth November, 1888. Sir,— With re ference to your letter of the 5th ultimo, asking that a bridge may be constructed over the Parramatta River at a point near Shepherd's Wharf near Rydalmero, I am directed to inform k you, in viow of the reports received upon the ?.subject, that the Secretary for Public Works is i finable to authorise a compliance with your re tmiesfc.
