THE sma oritjryof the fortli stpporter wiho attended the above matchl, played at Fitzroy on Satunlay last, gave one the impression that a disturbing clement was at work amongst them, if the anxious and worried look in their faces could be accepted as such. The reason was soonu known. The gallant captain of their goodly crew-the volatile licihard was paying a flying visit to Tasmaniar , and would not be back until the following Saturday. Howcvcr,n as a sourojon for their miseries, Ernie iean, who oflcieated in his stead, had the good fortune to win the toss, and sent tihe Fitzroy fellows in to bat on a wicket that eventually proved the correct ness of "Bcnnie's" judgment.

CIVIL SERVANTS AND THEIR LIABILITIES. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Courier and West Melbourne Advertiser — 24 January 1896
CIVIL SERVANTS AND TriEIn LIA srLrTINL-At the North Melbourno Court on Monday an employee in the Post Office Department, who was sued for debt, stated that he earned £188 a year, and was a single man without any claim on him whatever. The defendant seemed to think that he was very hardly treated, but Dr. Lloyd told himi thiat instead of being in debt hlie should have a balance in the bank. And it really does seem absurd that young mnn in tile Civil Service cannot live on tihe above salary, when numbers are mannag ing to struggle along without anything like the amount. Theretrenchling policy of the Government no doubt was notvery comnfortable for their servants, but they have not felt thle hard timecs anything like the general public.

THE BENEVOLENT ASYLUM. Tie spectacle of a recipient of public charity ssulting the superintendent-of the institution in _hicthutlie rnier is sheltered, fed, and clothed; and also threatening to " swing for" another oflicial is a strange one, and is calculated to give rise to some reflections. As will be seen by our report of the North Mel bourne Court, this week, such an inci dent took place withlin the Walls of the JBenevolent Asylum, when Mr. D. G. Sxunmnswns struckintheface by an in mate, who also announced his intention of "settling accounts ". with the store man. There lhas been an impression abroad for some time that iidmissidn to tile Asylum is too easily obtained; and a few weeks ago Dr.F.'LLovn, J.P., a member ofI; the committee, warned his colleagues of the daig&r of t;kikng in undesirable applicants, simply because there--wer- vacancies:; and the saume gentleman observed a year or two since that he was afraid thie inmates were too much pampered, with the result th...
