Special Meeting. Present-Cr. Bent (President) and the full council.   BEAUMARIS TRAM CO.'S AGREEMENT. The secretary produced a draft of the agreement to be entered into be- tween the Beaumaris Tramway Company and the Council, and which had been sub- mitted to representatives from both sides and discussed by them for upwards of three hours. Cr. Sparks thought that in justice to the new councillors (as it would not take long) it should be read over. This was done, and each clause explained and discussed at some length. The only clause on which a difference of opinion was elicited, was that giving the council the right at the end of 30 years to purchase the plant, &c., as a " going concern." Cr M'Swain holding the opinion that the purchase price should be the value of the plant, &c., not including the additional item of value added during the years of its existence. Cr.

THE CHINESE QUESTION. Great Meeting at Cheltenham. [Newspaper Article] — The Elsternwick Leader and District Record — 27 August 1887

THE CHINESE QUESTION.   Great Meeting at Cheltenham. The large hall at Cheltenham was filled, on Monday evening, by an eager, enthusi- astic and attentive audience, to hear addresses on the Chinese question, fully 600 persons were present. Mr. H. Sparks took the chair, and ex- pressed his pleasure at the large and repre- sentative audience assembled on the all important question that was now agitating the public mind. As chairman he was not called upon to give his own views, but to see that the meeting was properly conducted -fair play given to all. Different views might be expressed from that platform. It was desirable that these, if held, should be expressed, as only in this way could the truth be arrived at. Man is merely a crea- ture of circumstances, his ideas are formed by his surroundings. We were met, he re- peated, on an all important question vitally affecting the colony, and he hoped great good would result from the meeting. (Cheers).   &...

ROYAL COFFEE PALACE, MENTONE. [Newspaper Article] — The Elsternwick Leader and District Record — 27 August 1887

ROYAL COFFEE PALACE,   MENTONE. A VERY large number of local residents and visitors gathered together at Mentone last Saturday afternoon, the occasion being the laying of the memorial-stone of the coffee palace which is being erected for the Royal Coffee Palace Company Limited. Mr Snmart of the firm of Messrs Reed, Hender- son, and Smart, architects for the building, presented, on behalf of the shareholders, to the Hon. M. H. Davies a very handsome silver trowel with which to perform the ceremony. After declaring the stone to be well and truly laid, Mr Davies referred to the rapid progress of this place, and said it had been thought necessary to build a coffee palace which, besides being an orna- ment, would also provide a long-felt want -namely, that of a first-class temperance hotel. It was estimated that the present building would cost fully £10,000 by the time it was ready to be occupied, and was the first of several buildings which the    ...

The Leader. JUSTICE TO ALL. SATURDAY, AUGUST 27, 1887. FACTS ABOUT THE CHINESE. [Newspaper Article] — The Elsternwick Leader and District Record — 27 August 1887

JUSTICE TO ALL. SATURDAY, AUGUST 27, 1887. FACTS ABOUT THE CHINESE. To assist our readers to a clearer un- derstanding of the Chinese question we give the following facts from Hayter's Year Book for 1885-6:-   Chinese first began to arrive in Vic- toria in 1853; and, at the census of 1854, 2,000 were enumerated. In 1855 an Act was passed limiting the number of Chinese males a ship might bring to Victoria to one to every ten tons, and making it compulsory that the sum of ten pounds should be paid in respect to each of such immigrants. But, notwithstanding the stringent provisions of this Statute, which, how- ever, were largely evaded by Chinese being landed in the adjacent colonies and coning overland to Victoria, the Chinese had in 1857, when the next census was taken, increased to 25,254; and at the. end of 1859 it was esti- mated that they numbered no less than 42,000. Soon after this an exodus of Chinese took place, chiefly to New South Wales, it being esti- mated th...
