THE NEW MUNICIPAL BILL. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 26 October 1901

THE NEW MUNICIPAL BILL. Tub new Municipal BUI which lias bi-en introduced is a measure, which, if carried, should do a great deal of gcod. lb aims at shaking up the Municipal Councils, and in this respect should bo very acceptable to tho rate payers, oooie Municipal Councils require a considerable amount nf shak ing up just at present. By the Bill it is intended to revolutionise municipal affiirs in several directions. Under it, it is proposed lhat the wholo council shall retire at the end of two years, This is a most wholesome innovation inasmuch as it will give the long suffering ratepayers much hotter control over their own business. Such a pro vision will, of coursp, mat'or very little to the council which is always wide nwakn to the interests of the rate payers and keeps well ahead of its work, but it will bn a most effective lever with which thecouncil which does notdoitsdutyproperly may be capsized. Somfl councils meet once a fortnight simply to indulge in a municipal yawn, a...

MUNICIPAL MOREE. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 26 October 1901

MUNICIPAL MOREE. In our leading article to-dny, referenco is made to the introduction of the now Municipal Bill which, it is considered will do a great deal of good in the way of giving the ratepayers a littlo rooie control over their own uffuire. The pertinence of the remarks made will becoiuu mure apparent perhaps when wo come to consider ?natters in connection with our own municipal council. Some of our ald ermen might with reason bit likened unto tbosn who we are told in scripture were invited to attend a uiemorablH supper. One said he had married a wife and could not attend, another that he had bought oxen and had to go to prove them, and a third that ho had acquired a pieco of land and had to go und see it. The difference is, how ever, that BOino of our aldermen when missing do not even take the trouble to send excuses as n rule. Two futile attempts have heon made by tha Council Clerk to get a sufficient number of aldermen together this week for tfio purpoie of holding a counc...

In view of the slightly easier feeling manifested in other centres, wo scarcely hope to see the rates of last week maintained. Hides :— A little irregularity was notice able at this week's auctions, but this was due, not to any sound reason, so much as to the doubt on the part of buyers with regard to the tariff, and we have no doubt that when things iu the political world an' more settled a better tone for hides will prevail.

A BOOTMAKER IH DIFFICULTY. A lady ' once going into a boot maker's shop gave the man an order for a pair of boots, ' but,' she said, ? I want the right boot a size larger than the left.' and having been promised them in about a week's time, made her departure. On entering the shop the following week, she enquired if her boots were finished, to which the man meekly replied : ' Yes, mum, they are finished and waiting.' After receiving them she quickly left the shop. The man had just sat down to tea, when he beard a loud knocking in his shop, and on entering, was surprised to see the same old lady, who, before he had time to speak, exclaimed in an angry tone : 1 1 thought I told you to make the riehb boot a siie larger than the lett !' 1 And so I have, mum,' the man replied. 'Oh, no, you ain't,' says the old lady, ' you've made the left a size smaller than the right ' (which, of course, was exactly the same, but the poor bootmaker, not being sharp enough to perceive this, immediately c...
