Correspondence. TRAVELLING EXPENSES. To the Editor of the Advertiser. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 5 March 1874
Correspondence. * TRAVELLING EXPENSES. To the Editor of the Advertiser. Sir-At the last meeting of the Council of the Shire of Heidelberg, the consulting engineer, Mr. ERawlinson, was paid £35 on account of commission for superintend ing the erection of the Templestowe bridge. Mr. lawlinson certified for £080 as a progress payment to the contractors. Now five per cent. on £680 would be only £34. I suppose the odd' pound goes for "travelling expenses." It will be re membered that Mr. Rawllnson was paid £60 only a very short time ago, thus £95 have been paid already for " supervision." How much more will have to be paid before the job is finished P--I am, Sir, NEMO. Heidoelborg, Feb., 1874.

DETECTIVES. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 5 March 1874
DETECTIVES. - The paragraphs which have gone the rounds of the press in reference to the prefunctory manner in which the police perform any duties "outside the regular routine, received ample, confirmation in the case of the young girl who-recently. left her home in Carlton I consequence of some paltry school squabble, and, although incited to exert their very best efforts im mediately after her departure, the de tectives fatiled to discover any trace of her, while Mr. Berliner, a private detective with, we may presume, not one hun dredth part of- the same facilities, a fortnight after her disappearance suc ceeded in restoring her safe and unharmed. It is a matter for congratulation to the parents that their child met with so happy a fate, having succeeded in getting em ployment as nursemaid in a respectable family within a few hours of her leaving home.
EARLY CLOSING IN BRUNSWICK. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 5 March 1874
EARLY CLOSING IN BRUNSWICK; The movement to shorten the hours of labor in shops has at last succeeded in Brunswick, with a unamimity most commendable to the tradesmen of the borough. On Monday last Messrs. Hol loway, McDougall and Straw visited the various shopkeepers, inviting them to subscribe their names to a resolution to close their respective establishments at 7 p.m. on every evening except Saturday, and thanks to the energy of these gentle men and the common sense proposal they put before the people, their offorts were crowned with success. To show how general the movement is we have only to mention that those who agree to it, com. prise nine grocers, six drapers, five butchers, three general dealers, three cornfactors, three bootmakers,. two plumbers, two ironmongers, two bakers, onesaddler, one cabinetmaker, one chemist (except for medicine), and the co-opera. tive store. We trust the inhabitants of the borough will refrain from putting temptation in the wayof breaking thro...
THE CARLTON MUTUAL PERMANENT BUILDING SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 5 March 1874
THE CARLTON MUTUAL PER. MANENT fUILDING SOCIETY. We perceive by advertisement in our columns that the Carlton Mutual Per. manent Building Society have opened a branch of their business at 32 Collins street west. The success of this society was looked for with a very great degree of interest, as it was established upon purely mutual principles, and the result has been as satisfactory to the promoters as it has been advantageous to the share holders. Nearly all the original four year loans have expired, and in every instance the borrowers have had almost twenty-five per cent. of their interest written off. When it is considered that the rates which borrowers agree to pay are the same as in the principal societies in the city, and that such a large propor tion of the interest is taken off, it must be admitted that this society is worthy of the name under which it was inaugua rated. The success hitherto attend. ing its dealings has justified the management in opening those convenient an...
