KARATTA BACK AT PORT ADELAIDE Cargo Worked By Officers The trouble, which arose an Satur- &lt;*> day because the crew of the Karatta objected to the services of the fifth seaman being dispensed with, was dis- cussed at a meeting of seamen at the W-MJV. Hall, Nile-street, Port Adelaide, yesterday. Officials would say no more fVmr^ that the crew of the vessel had not refused to work.

Coast Steamships, Limited, was that when the ship was on the short run to Edithburgh the extra man's services were not required, and the ship's articles did not require the fifth man to be employed. As a result of the dispute a crew lor the vessel was obtained from officers of other vessels of the com pany, and four seamen and three fire men were logged. On the return of the Karatta to Port Adelaide yesterday he...

The members of the Liberal and Country Parties have been giving at tention to the report, but no decisions of their attitude have ...

A letter had been received from the Director of Mines stating that an ap plication had been made to his depart ment for a licence to search for oil on the banks of the Torrens, between Hackney Bridge and the weir, for a width of one chain on each side of the centre line of the river.

It was suggested that the oily ap pearance might have been due to some of the oil which had appeared on the water when a drum on the dredge was opened having been trapped by some means.

CUT IN EDUCATION FOR ECONOMY View Of Taxpayers' President [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 6 October 1931
CUT IN EDUCATION FOR ECONOMY View Of Taxpayers' President "The Premier (Mr. Hill) has shown such a statesmanlike grasp of the necessity of reducing the load of Gov- &lt;*> ernment expenditure." said the Dresi- dent of the Taxpayers' Association (Mr. S. McGregor Reid) yesterday, "that it comes as a rude shock to find him asserting that unless waste can be proved he will not touch the education bill." Mr. Reid was referring to the Pre mier's statement at P&yneham on Saturday, when he bald he was satis fied that no money was being wasted in the Education Department and that there would be no arbitrary cut. "The challenge to produce evidence of waste is beside the point," added Mr. Reid. "When the salaries of the Civil Service were drastically cut there was no attempt to justify the action on the ground that the salaries repre sented waste. When bondholders were cut 225 per cent, it was not on the ground of waste These and other things were done to bring expenditure s...

Sluice Gates Lessen Danger [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 6 October 1931
Sluice Gates Lessen Danger A report from the City Engineer sub- &lt;*> mitted to the Works and Highways Committee of the Adelaide City Coun- &lt;*> cil, states that the sluice gates at Torrens Lake were operated in such a manner during the period of the recent flood, that the conditions on the lower reaches of the Torrens were relieved as much as possible. It was probably one of the most important factors in clearing the flooded areas quickly. The report followed a letter from the West Torrens District Council in which it was stated that there was an impression abroad that the flood was accentuated by the action of the City Council in opening the flood gates while the river was in flood, thus dis charging a greater volume of water than would have been the case had the lake been used as a storage basin.
