CRICKET NOTES. The Finish of the Season. North Melbourne Premiers. First and Second Elevens. NORTH MELBOURNE v. UNIVERSITY. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Courier and West Melbourne Advertiser — 1 May 1896

CRICKET NOTES. By MYRTON. The Finish of the Season. North Melbourne Premiers. First and Second Elevens. NORTH ME1LBOURNE v. UNIVERSITY. NORTH WON iiY AN INNINGS ANts 102 RUNS. GEO. STUCKEY, 186; J. GEnBER, 117. The wicket on the North Melbourne Recreation Reserve on Saturday last, when the above match was resumed, was decidedly *'off color"-though this may be questionrd by those who were of opinion that the ground had a most pro nounced trend to "water color." Owing to the heavy rsins during the week, Curator Lee had been unable to put even the light roller on the pitch, and it was t?iought that Geo. Sturkey wou!d have all his work to getltie 7 runs necessary to pass Tommy Fox's highest aggregate; and that whatever show Jack Gerber had of reactinghe century would be nipped li the bud bytih6' prenks the wicket was expected to play. Contrary to expect ation, however, the left-bander brought his score up to 186 before he was splen didly taken in the slips by Fitzgerald off McLeod; and ...

THE RAILWAYS AND THE INSOLVENCY LISTS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Courier and West Melbourne Advertiser — 1 May 1896

THE RAILWAYS AND T'HE IN SOLVENCY LISTS. As unpleasant feature of the recent lists of the Insolvency Courts is the number of railway employds whose names appear theroon. We say.unpleasant, advisedly, because North and West Melbourne tradesmen and shopkeepers have numer ous transactions with railway men, and many of the latter have often appeared as defendants in debt cases at the local court -their figuring in tiis aspect drawing forth "many a time and oft" the remark from the Chairman: "I think railway "employds are among the worst payers "in the colony." And in these times when men are struggling to keep wives and families on a mere pittance, it seems monstrous that Government employds, drawing a good wage, should not be able to pay their way. It would appear thnt insolvency with railway employds, so long as they pay the regulated amouilt in the £, and there is no fraud, does not mean dismissal; but it is difficult to see why the railway em ployd should, on his income, be so often...

ANNUAL MAY DAY DEMONSTRATION. (To the Editor) [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Courier and West Melbourne Advertiser — 1 May 1896

ANNUAL MAY DAY DEMON STRATION. (To the Editor) San,-The recurrence of the day which in Europe is usually associated with the opening=oF "?h_ .enaLsea-son,ams_£oe some years past been illustrated by an international demonstration in the .in terests of labor. Victorian democracy has not been wanting to this sacred cause, which has made great advances in all civilized countries since the inaugu ration of the movement, as witness the presence of labor members as a recog nized element in the Imperial and in all Australian Parliaments, and in the La gislatures of Germany and Italy. In Victeria it may be well doubted whether the present ministry could exist a day without the support of the labor mem bers. In New South Wales, Mr. Reid's government is mainly dependent upon the same section of representatives, nor could he have carried his free trade policy through both Houses and a general elec tion, had he not secured their assistance by the promise of a Land Tax and an Income Tax. In South...

THE LOCAL POOR BOX. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Courier and West Melbourne Advertiser — 1 May 1896

- ? THE LOCAL POOR BOX. (To tie Editor.) Sza,-I am informed that some few days ago a North Melbourne Magis trate was applied to for a donation from the poor box for a deserving case in this town, for the consideration of the cliari table, but he replied that the money in the box was for the purpose of donating to indigent .female complainants, to en able them to take out summonses against husbands who had deserted them, fathers of illegitimate children, and so forth. According to the Nosu? E MEL ,OURNE COURIER's reports of the police court cases, the North Melbourne poor box should be pretty full, .considering how frequently defendants are directed to place 5s. in it, instead of being fined or imprisoned; and it seems strange that these- fdhds should he devoted solely to providing women oith free legal docu ments. There are cases, no doubt, where a poor wife could not bring a worthless husband to Iustice if it were not for a summons without cost ; but it is absurd that the money bho...

A THRIVING INDUSTRY. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Courier and West Melbourne Advertiser — 1 May 1896

A THRIVDIG INDUSTRY. T is cheerful to find in the present era of difficulty, debt, and doubt a venture being carried on, the pressht and future of which they who are engaged in it find matter for satisfaction and confidence. Such a business can be seen in the alispe of Messrs. T. R. Reid & Co.'s preserving and pickle manufactory, off Hawke-street, West Melbourne, and we have had the pleasure of visiting and inspecting it this week ; and our readers will, doubt less, find a short account of what is being done there interesting. In the first place the business is unassuming as far as the gaze of the beholder of its sphere of operations is concerned. There is no clank and whirr of machinery, no hum of revolving fly-wheels, no stunning blows of steam-hammers nor roar of furnaces -nothing that is visible when concen trated and controlled mighty natural forces are being made the servants of man's mechanical mind. On the con trary, all is quiet, comfortable, and serene: and the num...

PAYING INTO COURT. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Courier and West Melbourne Advertiser — 1 May 1896

Sin,-As most people ara iavare thlrre are two methods by which a pairson who isordered by.avurLtsip?,ai?h amontno of money to auiother may comply with the order of such'curit. 1:--By paying the money direct to the comphlinant; and, 2.-By paying it to the clerk of petty sessions or his assistant. In debt cases, the defendant is told, as a rule, by the justices to pay the amount for which an order has been made to the com plainant direct; but in other cides, such as maintenance proceedings-.heuher a wife against a hu.band, or a single wd man against the father of her child-the defendant is distinctly directed to pay the amount "to the clerk of petty ses siono, at North Melbourne."

CHURCH OF ENGLAND CONCERT. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Courier and West Melbourne Advertiser — 1 May 1896

CHURCH OF ENGLAND_ CONCERT. THE irt of series of concerts in aid of the Church Fund of St. Mary's Church of Eniglands.was given in the schoolroom last Wednesday evening, in the presence of a Iarge and appreciative asdisnee. The Rev. Canon Carlisle presided, and briefly intro duced the performers, stating in a humorons way that the presence of a chairman, when people came to listen to melody and song, was, after all, a mere "tyranny of custom," but perhaps some timeit might come to be considered other than as a sine qua non. Mr. W. H. Hcatheote, the organist of the church, acted as accompanist throughout, and filled the position in his usual talented manner. TThe concert opened with an in stromental overture from the "Caliph of Bagdad," Hiss Wiedemann officiating at the piano, and Herr Wiedemann, Messrs. L. and J. Cober, and J. Stephens taking the violin parts. Herr Wiedemann is a violin player of the first order, and his performances on the instrUment were a treat not often afforded...
