VISITOR ROBBED. VICTIM OF SWINDLER. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 30 August 1933

VISITOR ROBBED. VICTIM OF SWINDLER. The kindly heart of a visitor from Atherton led to his being swindled of £3 by a confidence trickster, whom he met casually at the Central Railway Station last evening. Tht visitor, who left for Atherton last evening, was at the station mak- ing final arrangements for the journey when he was accosted by a stranger. The latter informed* him that he would be a fellow passenger. To pass the time while they were wait- ing for the train, the stranger sug- gested that they should go for a walk, to which the visitor agreed. They were returning to the station, when I the stranger discovered that he had I left some parcels in the city. To ob- tain the parcels he needed some small change, and as he had nothing less than a £50 bank note, he asked for a loan of £3. He promised to meet at the station. However, the visitor did not see him again, and the matter was placed in the hands of the police.

NO REGULATIONS. Pictures in Private Houses. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 30 August 1933

NO REGULATIONS. Pictures in Private Houses. Following the destruction by fire of a large boarding establishment at South Brisbane during the showing of moving pictures on Monday night.it was ascertained from the council's health department yesterday that the position had already been investi-, gated. Once an admittance charge was made, it was explained, the en- tertainment would come within the control of the council's by-laws re- garding entertainments, but as it was at present there was nothing to pre- vent a householder entertaining any number of guests at a picture display at his home. The subject was also referred to at a meeting of the Metropolitan Fire Brigades Board yesterday, when Ald- erman A. Laurie asked if the council's regulations did not apply in regard to such entertainments. The chief officer (Mr. W. Younger) said it was the first time the brigade had had a fire through the burning of films in a private house. His in- formation was that the film choked in the machin...

INVESTIGATION NEEDED. MUNICIPAL WORKSHOPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 30 August 1933

INVESTIGATION NEEDED. MUNICIPAL WORKSHOPS. Whether the amalgamation of the municipal workshops, as decided by the Brisbane City Council, had been pro- perly carried out should be investi- gated, said Alderman W. Power at the meeting of the City Council yesterday. From information given to him, said Alderman Power, it would appear that the wishes of the council had been ignored. The water and sewerage de- partment was employing its own car- penter, for Instance, and work was being given out privately. Alderman G. B. Vickers said that there was no doubt that the decision of the council was flouted. Tlie executive should show greater enthusiasm by in- sisting that the wort be carried out.,

REQUEST TO PREMIER. DO OVERHAUL OF DREDGE IN BRISBANE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 30 August 1933

REQUEST TO PREMIER. DO OVERHAUL OF DREDGE IN BRISBANE. A determined effort is being made by the Premier and Treasurer (Mr. W. F. Smith) to have the work of overhauling the dredge Fitzroy car- ried out in Brisbane, instead of in Sydney. Representatives of employees in the metal trades waited on Mr. Smith yesterday, and said lo him that their information was ihat the Rockhamp- ton Harbour Board, the owners of the vessel, proposed to send the vessel to Sydney for an overhaul. The men contended that the work should be done in Brisbane; it would give em- ployment to local men. The Premier said later that he had taken the matter up with the Rock- hampton Harbour Board and was en- deavouring to arrange that the work be done in Brisbane. "There is no reason," he said, "why it cannot be done as effectively in Brisbane as in Sydney." j

CHEAP JEWELLERY. JAPANESE DUMPING. AUSTRALIAN INDUSTRY SUFFERS. MELBOURNE. August 29.. Further evidence of Japanese dump- ing to the detriment of Australian industry is supplied hy local manu- facturers of Jewellery, such as links, studs, rings, wrist bands, chains, and earrings. Before the incursion of cheap Japanese lines, one factory gave steady full-time employment to 102 workers. In the last month 40 of these have been put off. Those remaining are working only three-quarter time. Another factory making studs found it possible to compete against Euro- pean studs landed at 14/ a gross against the Australian production's cost of 9/6 a gross, but when Japan- ese studs were landed here at an all inclusive duty paid cost of 6/11 a gross, the situation became impossible. FACTORY COST, 3/6 GROSS. These Japanese studs, it is reckon- ed, would be bought on the basis of a factory cost of about 3/6 a gross. This factory has dismissed all the better-paid operatives engaged in stud making, o...
