BURROWA ITEMS.

Burrowa, Tuesday.

    Considerable sickness prevails among the children in Burrowa and the district.

    The plant for the erection of the new bridge at Coffey’s crossing was received yesterday. The speedy erection of the bridge is much required as the present crossing is almost impassible.

    The first performance of the Burrowa amateur dramatic club is to take place to–morrow evening in the Mechanics’ Institute.

    Fair progress is being made by the contractors in the erection of the new court-house and the police buildings.

    Owing to the recent rains the Frogmore Copper Company’s Works are enabled to be kept full working order.

BURROWA ELECTION.
————
MR TM SLATTERY IN
BURROWA.
————

    On Monday evening last Mr TM Slattery addressed the electors in the Mechanics’ Institute. The chair was occupied by Mr JJ Kershaw, and there was a large attendance present.

    As he was before hem giving an account of his stewardship he would remind them that, before he became member for Burrowa, little or no expenditure of money had taken place in the electorate. It was the most neglected electorate in the whole colony, but that since his return in 1880 he had caused the erection of the

new Court-house in Burrowa.

    NEW COURTHOUSE.—This fine new building was taken over by the Government from Mr Thomas Calls, the contractor, Saturday. The presiding magistrate was Mr Isaac Stevenson. Congratulations were exchanged between the police and the bench on the happy release from the temporary courthouse. The building cost £5000, and is every way fitted for the business in hand. The establishment of a court of Quarter Sessions in this town would be a boon our community have long craved for, as prisoners and witnesses have had too go to Young, a distance of 30 miles, entailing great delay and expense. There is ample room in the new courthouse for the discharge of the duties of such a court.
