AND CARLTON ADVOCATE. WEDNESDAY, 15Tr OCTOBER. THE OUTER C[RCLE LINR OF RAILZTAY. The deputation of the residents of Brunswick and Northcote, which waited upon Mr. G illies, met with a rather favor able reception.' The arguments used by nMr. Orerend appeared to have consider able weight with the Commissioner. On behalf of the deputation, he stated the advantages possessed by the outer circle scheme over any of the other routes which had been surveyed between Melbourne and Onkleigh, and especially that via Elsternwick. lie clearly demonstrated the fact that if the Government make use of the Iobson's Bay line the expense in the long run will very nearly approach the estimate given for the outer circle route. The route via ltobson's Bay Rail way would in round numbers cost £170,702, while the entire cost of the outer circle line was set down at £108,070, the difference being £18,778. For that sum Brunswick, Northcote, Fitzroy, and Kew would get railway com munication with Melbourne. Th...

Correspondence. PENTRIDGE DISCIPLINE. To the Editor of the Advertiser. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 15 October 1873
Correspondence. PENTRTDGE DISCrPLTNlE. To the Editor of the Advertiser. Sir-Judging from circumstances that occasionally crop up in connection with the Pentridgo Stockade, it would appear that the warders have quite enough to do to watch themselves instead of devoting their whole attention to the prisoners. For the most trivial things they are pounced down upon by the lynx.eyed officials who are constantly watching them to'detect any sleight breach of the regulations. Tile most incongruous charges imaginable are brought against them; in fact what the prisoners, are allowed to do openly these officials are punished for doing privately. Only a few days ago two or three of their number received a reprimand for smoking in a private portion of the establishment, and yet the convicts are allowed to have a snioking yard where they indulge in the narcotic with impunity. Another instance of the petty-fogging childish. supervision exercised occurred only a morning or two ago. One of the warde...

REVIEW OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 15 October 1873
REVIEW OF THE WNEEK. The people of Brunswick and the East Bourko Boroughls, fully alive to their in terests, are moving the spheres in order to bring pressure to bear on the Government in adopting the outer circle.line in prefer ence to the Hobson's Bay railway route. Public opinion is altogether in favour of the outer circle line, because it will bring all the northern suburbs into close union 'with city, besides contributing a large sum annually, to the public revenue. The Gippsland railway scheme may be sum med up in a few words. The outer circle line if. adopted will be for the benefit of thousands of people resident in East Bourke Boroughs, property in these locali. ties will be enhanced, and the coffers of the State will be ultimately largely added to. 'But if the Hobson's Bay scheme is adopted none will be benofitted with the xceoption of a few capitalists who are very large shareholders in that company, and who spend their money out of Victoria. The outer circle line is the ...

MORE STRIPES WANTED. To the Editor of the Advertiser. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 15 October 1873
MORE STRIPES WANTED. To the Editor of the Advertiser. Sir--On taking my usual Sunday ramble, I happened to stroll up Errol street, where I noticed three or four young men standing talking, but before long I had the pleasure of seeing how the Hotham Police act; they were arrested for insult ing behaviour. Having patiently waited till they came out of the lock-up, I asked if they were dismissed, but the constable said no, that they had to appear on Mon day. I eonsider-that it is very hard if young gentlemen. cannot stand.talkingin Errol street without having the very eyes stared out of their head or being locked up. Why can a policeman stand and talk to girls when anyone else must not do any more tban say good evening in a very gentle manner for fear of having to put fire shillings in the poor box P October 7, 1873.
