NOTES AND COMMENTS. Fitzroy, 22/8/78. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 24 August 1878

NOTES AND COMMENTS. BY COSMOPOLITE. Fitzroy, 22 j 8 18. The residents of Whittlesea must be in' a petty qoandary in a case of sickness or accident occurring amongst them, requiring immediate medical attendance-at least so Ishonuld imanine from a remark which fell from one of the witnesses at the inquest held last Saturday on the body of the 'nn fortunate boy, Hall, who was 'killed the Wednesday previous. A brother of deceased in giving his evidence said that the reason for not going to Whittlesea for a doctor when the accident took place was, that he knew it would be no use, for the medico was sure to be incapable. That such a state f arffirs should exist is truly deplorable even in a city, but when all the residents -0f a wide spread locality are at the mercy of a man whose habits are anything but steady, the evil becomes absolutely a crime, and in my opinion steps should be taken by the authorities to prevept by stringent measures, the possibility of any unfortunate being who may ...

Ritchie, Mailler, and Anketell, J.P.'s were on the bench. The eight boys implicated in the disturbance, named Frederick Lacey, William Everett, John Howard, Phillip Ballard, James Gigg, Frederick Mozam,. Henry Graham, and Frederick Stewart were charged with un lawfully assaulting some other boys of the Reformatory. The case against Everett, for assaulting a delicate-looking boynamed William Blair, was first proceeded with. From the evidence, it appears that this defendant had committed a most cowardly assault, having struck Blair and then de liberately jumped on him and inflicted injuries, from which Blair is stillsuffering. Mr. McFarlane, in corroborating the evi dence, described the assault as being very cowardly and severe. The bench addressed the prisoner at some length, pointing out the nature of such condu...

I was city editor of a Texas daily newspaper at the time, a position at once hazardous and excit ing. "Well, sir," I said to the youth as he approached me, "what can I do for you?" ... The freckle-faced stranger emptied his mouth of an accumulation of tobacco juice, and asked: Are you the editor ?" If I had not -been busy at the time I would not have deceived him, but as it was I replied : "No, I'm not the editor : I'm the the proprietor. Anything more ?"

COUNCILS. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 24 August 1878

COUNCILS. Present: the Mayor (Cr. Walker) in the chair, Crs. Peters. Smith. Keele, Wright, Turner Hanslow, Bryant and Upton. CORRESPOSDEnCE. From the City Fire Brigade, asking for hose, about 500 feet thereof, and also asking for a plan of the fire plug. Super intendent Haines said that he thought 500 feet was too much, and he did not approve of the providing of a plan of the plug. Cr. Hanslow thought entirely other wise and instanced the loss sustained at Mr. Harvey's fire through insufficiency of hose and a want of acquaintance with the position of the fire plug. Cr. Smith thought that the Brigade should parade the streets as was the wont of Brigades in the ancient times of Collingwood. It was finally agreed that 200 feet of hose should be procured for the brigade, and the neces sary indications for fire plugs obtained. The captain of the City Brigade com plained that members of the Volunteer Fire Brigade had obstructed the City Bri gade in getting water at a fire in Eyrie-st. It ...

SPORTS. HURLING. CoLLINGWOOD V KYNETON.-This grand hurling match took place on Saturday in Collingwood and was witnessed by a large number of spectators who took great interest in the play. The game resulted in a win for Collingwood by two goals to their opponents Nil. On the arrival of the visitors at the station by the 10.15. train, they were met by some of Collingwood men and es- corted in omnibusses to Cody's Abbotsford Hotel, Johnston-street. After an inspection was made of Kinsella's paddock where the match was intended to be played it was found to be altogether too wet for hurling purposes. It was then agreed to visit the Darling Gardens which place was very fair considering the amount of rain that had fallen during the previous night, toward the western goal there were a few pools of water into which many a player found his level. The Collingwood players did not turn up very punctually owing to the dissapointment in the ground and conse- quently the game did not start at the...
