THE DISCUSSION ON THE LOAN FUND EXPENDITURE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 12 June 1874
TIE DISCUSSION ON THE LOAN. FUND EXPENDITURE. Sir-The great majority of ratepayers will, I am sure, be pleased that the ques tion of the loan expenditure has been debated in the Hotham Council at the present juncture; no time could have been more opportune than the present, because the burgesses will now be placed, in possession of all the particulars relat ing to this disgraceful job; and, what is of far greater importance, they now know the opinions of -their representatives, as recorded by their votes, on this all im portant question. With what kind of feeling will this knowledge of the manner in which the majority recorded their votes be received? Will it not be with indignation and disgust? Most assuredly it will,'for every man possessing in the least degree a sense of what ss honest and just can view it in no other light. The whole tenor of the debate, together with the extraordinary ruling of the Mayor, shows most conclusively that the supporters of the amendment were deter. ...

COUNCILLOR CAINE AND HIS VOTE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 12 June 1874
COUNCILLOR CAINE AND HIS VOTE. Sir-In your report of the debate on law and the uniform practice of the the question of the loan fund expenditure, you have inadvertently omitted Coancillor Caine's name from the list of those who voted for Councillor Whito's amendment. I write to correct this omission as it would not be fair to either Councillor Caine or to the burgesses of the Middle Ward if it were left in doubt what his views were on this all important question. In voting against charging those owners of pro perty who have had the footpaths in front of their properties pared, doubtless Councillor Caine thought he was carrying out the promises he made to the bur gesses at the time of his election, when he stated that h would only support such measures as would add to the general advancement of the borough, and that he would be fair and just alike to all; but I am inclined to think-as will doubtless the majority of the burgesses-that he has made a sad mistake, for no act on his part ...

Letters to the Editor. HALF THE COST OF PAVEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 12 June 1874
Letters to the Editor. HALF TIIE COST OF PAVEMENT. Sir-The Councillor, who contrary to past moved in effect that he be not called upon to pay half the cost of paving his three frontages, because such pavement had been paid out of the loan, had the audacity to say that the Councillors who had contended that injustice to all, the law and uniform practice of the past should be adhered to, occupied then a humiliating position, little thought that the editor of the leading journal in Vic toria would tell him that his motion was illegal and out of order, and thereby re minded him of the humiliating nature of his own position. Sir, this modest and disinterested Councillor in effect says that the owners of property in no less than thirty streets in the Borough, who have to pay the loan and interest back again, though not a single penny of the loan money has been spent in any of those thirty streets, are to pay contrary to law and practicothe whole cost of his pave ment because it was done o...

THE APPROACHING MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 12 June 1874
TI'E APPROACHING AMUNICIPAL ELECTIONS. In Hotham it is expected that there will be a keen contest orer the election for the Eastern and Middle Wards. Messrs. Carroll, Caine, and Ryan are the outgoing members; it is, however, more than probable that these gentlemen will again seek re-election, but, judging from the correspondence which has appeared in this journal lately, all of them will be op posed. There appears to be some differ nce of. opinion among the ratepayers as to the manner in which the loan has been expended, it being contended that some districts have secured a larger share of the money than they were justly entitled to. . Of course, there are two sides to this question, and itwillbo simplya matter for the ratopayers to consider which of the candidates are the most eligible; WYith the object of promoting discussion the columns of this paper are open to all ratopayers who may feel disposed to avail themselves of this medium of expressing. their opinions upon local topics...

SOUTHERN PROVINCE ELEC. TION. The contest for the seat vacated by Mr. Degraves is now narrowed down to Mir. JamesBalfour, of Messrs. Henty and Co., of Molbourne, and Mr. William Taylor, squatter, Kelior. Both these gentlemen are well and- favorably known but the formbr will poll most of the votes in East Bourkeo Boroughs. Mr. Balfour ad dressed the electors of the South Province at Brunswick on Monday evening at con siderablo length. Hie dissented from the proposed reform in the constitution sub miitted to the country by the Government, be'auseit would make the Assembly too poreorful, while an expression of public opinion would not be obtained, The Coun cil might have to yield; not to public opinmion, but to an accidental majority in the .ssombly. Though he was opposed to the present plan, Mr. Balfour stated that hie believed there were elements in the bill submitted last session for the re form 6f the Council, which would have overcome the difficulties which they were all agr eed w...

COMPOSITION PAVEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 12 June 1874
COMPOSITION Pi?VEMENT. Sir-In your last week's paper I notice a considerable amount of tall talk in the Council Chanlbor by certain members about their oaths of otllio, pockets, and solemn trusts reposed in them, &c., &c., sad I would like to ask when it first oc eurred to them thiht the trusts they iom josed on themsolves lhad not been faith fully carried out. Was it at the time when the Councillors in power sat and voted the loan money away in a diflbrent manner than that laid down in the sche dule of iorks, or is it only now when they find themselves in a minority and not'ablo any longer to control the borough puree P I think so, with some few hundreds others of the ratepayers, that it is only now theyfind it so. I would ask them by what authority they spent £2,373 on patent composition out of the special'ldin, and defy them to show any authority for doing so. At the same time, I am aware how it was done, namely, by robbing the streets of their share of the loan a...
BLOCKING UP STREETS IN BRUNSWICK. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 12 June 1874
BLOCKING UP STRIETS IN , RUNSWVICK. Sir--Tho two brickmaklrs who with their kilns, tools and sheds, occupy and block uip the continuation of Charles street from eVoston to Barkloy street, are Messrs. Barnes and Redforn. The land thus occupied is worth at least £300. It is monstrously unjust to allow two wealthy men to appropriate this street; and it is also a grievous wrong to others in the same trade who are compelled to purchase land for their manufacturing purposes. I hear that the Council are going tomuovo in this matter and I hope it will prove true.-Your's &c., A ?ncKsts.trLn.
