PRESENTATION TO PARLIAMENT FRUSTRATED Assembly Development [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931
PRESENTATION TO PARLIAMENT FRUSTRATED Assembly Development There was a remarkable develop- &nbsp; ment in the Assembly yesterday when the Minister of Railways (Mr. Denny) sought to lay the report of the Royal Commission on railways on the table of the House. The leader of the Opposition (Mr. Butler) intends to submit a formal motion this afternoon to discuss the position. Mr. Craigie had spoken until nearly 6 p.m. in replying to the debate on his motion regarding the tariff. The motion had been declared negatived on the voices, and Mr. Craigie called for a division. When it was over the House was still in cession, although, if the division had not been taken there would have been an automatic ad- journment at 6 o'clock for dinner. Mr. Denny thereupon moved the sus- pension of the standing orders to en- able him to lay the report of the Com- mission on the table. Mr. Cameron rose to a point of order and asked the Speaker (Mr. Shepherd) whether the motion was in order. Mr. She...

Unfavorable Market for Fat Bullocks Melbourne, September 30. There was a very unfavorable market for fat bullocks at Flemington today. The offering was 1,450 head—a substantial de- &nbsp; crease. The opening sales showed a firmer trend, but later, with irregular competi- tion, prices in many instances during the &nbsp; &nbsp; afternoon were fully 10/ to 15/ a head lower than the general average of last week's rates. The supply was chlefly ripe quality, medium-lightweight young bul- locks from New South Wales. Young cattle and calves were forward, and prices steadily hardened to improved rates, the closing sales being fully 10/ a head in &nbsp; advance of last week's reduced rates.

ULM'S DAIRY OF LIFE AT "COFFEE ROYAL" Disappearance of Southern Cross in North-West AIRMEN LIVE ON BABY'S FOOD [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931
ULM'S DIARY OF LIFE AT 'COFFEE ROYAL' &nbsp; Disappearance of Southern Cross In North-West AIRMEN LIVE ON BABY'S FOOD Forced down in the rough north-west while on the way to Wynd- ham, preparatory to taking off for England, the Southern Cross and her crew were stranded from March 31 until April 12, al- though they were not able to leave 'Coffee Royal' until April 18. In 'the Story of the Southern Cross,' Kingsford Smith includes Ulm's diary, written during that period. It forms the bulk of today's instalment. &nbsp; By AIR COMMODORE KINGSFORD SMITH PART 10 APRIL 3.— We are all weaker now. I feel gone in the legs and arms, but we are mentally alert. We corrected our longitude position again this morning, and col- lected wood for a fire, keeping it burn- ing all the morning. We had gruel for lunch and feel slightly better. The flies are unbearable, and the mos- quitoes damnable. There was an- other small shower about 2 p.m. The flies hampered work considerably, as one ...

FIFTY YEARS AGO From "The Advertiser," October 1, 1881 [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931
FIFTY YEARS AGO From 'The Advertiser,' October 1, 1881 FROM tonight a bright white light, visible in clear &nbsp; weather about five miles from a vessel's deck, will burn at the end of Port Victoria Jetty. TT would almost seem that &nbsp; city sparrows are aware of &nbsp; the edict whereby their heads and eggs may be exchanged by juveniles and others for cur- rent coin. There is a marked migration of these pests north- wards. FOR £20 a side, Deerfoot, the New South Wales cham- &nbsp; pion pedestrian, and Harris (Adelaide) met in the Crystal Hall. Bent-street, in a 24 hours' go-as-you-please contest. Deer- foot retired lame, after com- pleting 50 miles in eight hours, Harris going on to achieve 102½ miles in 22½ hours. There was a fair audience most of the day and night, and the winner was at times loudly cheered.

£25 DAMAGES FOR SLANDER Union Officials' Case [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931
£25 DAMAGES FOR SLANDER Union Officials' Case Mr. L. H. Haslam, S.M., in the Local Court yesterday awarded Alfred George Angell £25 damages against James Ernest Stephens for alleged slander. Angell, who is organiser of the Ade- laide sub-branch of the Federated Carters and Drivers' Union, claimed £99 damages from Stephens, secretary of the Port Adelaide branch of the union. Angell alleged that Stephens had said to him at a meeting of the disputes committee at the Trades Hall on Sep- tember 29, 1930—"What is more, I never accepted a bribe from a boss as you did, and I can prove it. I will give you all you want." Stephens counter-claimed £99 damages, alleging that at the same meeting, Angell had called him a liar. A verdict was returned for Angell on the counter-claim. Mr. Haslam said he had come to the conclusion that the statement of Stephens was made maliciously and with the intention of Injuring Angell. It had been established that the trans- action between Angell and Mr. W. H. Dr...
VIEWS AND COMMENTS FIGHTING THE MURRAY FLOWS "NEED FOR FULL ENQUIRY" To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931
VIEWS AND COMMENTS FIGHTING THE MURRAY FLOWS "NEED FOR FULL ENQUIRY" To the Editor CLEM R. COLLINS. Parliament House. Adelaide. Sir—In view of the unsatisfactory answers given in Parliament by irriga- &nbsp; tion officers. I feel it necessary to place facts before the public in regard to several points relating to the Murray floods. Prior to the flood arriving, the district officer of the Lower Mur- ray called a meeting at Wall, and asked for suggestions as to fighting the floodwaters. Various suggestions were made, amongst them being one by my- self asking the Government, in the event of the water rising to a dan- gerous height, to flood the swamp in order to save time and expense. No suggestion at this meeting was put in the form of a motion. It now ap- pears that after giving me an answer last Tuesday that no suegestion was received, officials are endeavoring to cover up their own omissions by ap- proaching some settlers and asking them to sign a statement to the effect "...
SCHEME OF LAND SETTLEMENT 500,000 ACRES ON OFFER To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931
SCHEME OF LAND SETTLEMENT 500,000 ACRES ON OFFER To the Editor C. L. ALEXANDER. Hon. Secretary, Back to the Land Committee, 12, Pirie-street. Sir—While not for one minute would I recommend an extension of our wheat areas at the present time, it behoves us to keep those areas under cultivation. It is certain that there will be a general writing down of farmers' debts, but the industry will come again. Canada and U.S.A. have had a phenomenal run of good seasons, while the seasons have been against us. The break will be our way next. A shortage of wheat can easily occur, and we must be prepared for it. Men going on the land today are in the happy position of being able to start out at today's prices; in other words, the process of writing down has already taken place by the fact that so much land is on the mar- ket. Nearlr 500,000 acres of land within assured rainfall areas has been offered without solicitation to the Back to the Land Committee. The settlers are also available, some wi...
COMPULSORY CONVERSION "DEBTOR SHOULD DO THE PLEADING" To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931
COMPULSORY CONVERSION "DEBTOR SHOULD DO THE PLEADING" To the Editor I am, Sir, &c., FRED STEVENS, Peel-street. Sir—It seems to me that the holders of 3 per cent. of the whole internal debt are a moderate number who find themselves obliged to dissent. They include many who require their money and trustees who are bound to pro- vide certain funds at fixed dates. Now the Premiers of Australia, "dressed in a little brief authority," are proposing legislation to break the Common- wealth's contracts with the dissen- tients. They will, however, endeavor to meet cases of hardship. How? Must people disclose their affairs to officials, who will decide whether they shall be paid their dues? It seems do me the debtor should do the pleading; but perhaps the cynic who said that the man who owes the money is master of the situation, was right, after all. The moral question, whether the self- asserted needs of a Government jus- tify the proposed breaches of contract, is one on which the chu...
PROHIBITION IN U.S.A. "DOTS" ACTIVE AMD CONFIDENT To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931
PROHIBITION IN U.S.A. "DOTS" ACTIVE AMD CON- FIDENT To the Editor ALBERT KEELING, General Secretary, S.A. Prohibition League. Sir—I am in receipt of a long and deeply interesting letter from Mr. Boyd D. Doty, general counsel of the World League against Alcoholism. Westerville, Ohio, U.S.A. He refers to the Rey. Dr. Henry Howard's state- ments against prohibition as "a con- glomeration of exaggerated misinfor- mation, and twisted opinion." The &nbsp; people of New York City, he says, are not generally competent to pronounce a trustworthy judgment on the work- &nbsp; ing of the prohibition law throughout the States. 'Dr. Howard simply doesn't know anything about the minds of the temperance leaders in America. ... In the Presidential election of 1928 so anxious were the American people to elect a dry President, that they took no chances and in the unprecedented &nbsp; majority received by Mr. Hoover, a &nbsp; large number of dry Congressmen were elected ...
POINTS FROM LETTERS Totalisator and Trotting [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931
POINTS FROM LETTERS Totalisator and Trotting From "Wide Awake":—The Council of Churches has offended the gambling fraternity by fighting against the ex- &nbsp; tension of the use of the totalisator. The Church's duty is to warn and help protect young people against the pit- falls (or the devil's traps, whichever &nbsp; one would like to call them) of gamb- ling and drink. These evils are fast dragging many men and women down to low depths of degradation. In op- posing the totalisator the Council of Churches has in mind the welfare of the souls of human beings, who must stand before the Almighty's judgment seat. "Cruel Exactions from Thrift"' From C. Barton, Port Pirie:—An elderly man who, by frugal living, saved money for his old age, is now in this position. Having either given up work or being unable to work, and having, say, an income of from £50 to £300 a year from investment in bank shares or industrials, he gets not a penny of exemption of any kind for income t...
TOTALISATOR AND TROTTING ATTITUDE OF COUNCIL OF CHURCHES To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931
TOTALISATOR AND TROTTING ATTITUDE OF COUNCIL OF CHURCHES To the Editor C. W. BURNARD. Superintendent of Good-Citizenship for Christian Endeavor in South Australia. Sir—Parliament declares that horse- racing and betting on races is lawful. Irrespective of what a clique of narrow- &nbsp; minded puritanical parsons may think to the contrary, the escutcheon ot the man who races or backs horses is as clean as that of the first citizen in the land. In its wisdom Parliament decrees that wagering or betting shall take a certain form. When the people concerned think that the proper con- duct of their sport warrants a change which requires the sanction of Parlia- ment, they ask in a constitutional way to have the change effected. Why should the Council of Churches be per- mitted to step in and say, in effect, if not in words. "We do not approve of your particular sport, and we have appointed ourselves your keepers. It matters not to us that the law ap- proves of racing. We are a law u...
OUR COUNTRY SECTION HEAVY LAMB SUPPLY Prices Again Below Melbourne [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931
OUR COUNTRY SECTION HEAVY LAMB SUPPLY Prices Again Below Melbourne After the short yarding of last week, the supply of lambs at the Abattoirs sales on Wednesday was the largest for many years, and the quality was more than equal to the high standard of recent offerings. The yarding totalled 7,100 sheep and 27,000 lambs, an increase of 2,000 and 14,000 respectively. Practically all the sheep were shorn Merino wethers, drawn from the pastoral areas of this State and New South Wales, with a sprinkling from the inside districts. The quality, on the whole, was excel- lent, and, although there were a num- ber of very heavy wethers, the supply of medium weights was greater than of late. Among the sheep noticed were ten trucks of shorn Merino wethers in splendid trade order, from Messrs. J. P. & L. J.Lewis, Nelyambo &nbsp; Station, Broken Hill; four trucks from Koonoona Proprietors, Ltd, Wauka- ringa; and five trucks from Messrs. A. I. & K. L. Hawker, McCoy's Well. L...
TELEPHONE ACCOUNTS NOT PAID Farmers and Others Cat Off Canberra, September 30. [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931
TELEPHONE ACCOUNTS NOT PAID Farmers and Others Cut Off Canberra, September 30. Replying to Mr. Hawker (S.A.) in the House or Representatives today, the Postmaster-General (Mr. Green) ad- mitted that a considerable number of farmers were having their telephones disconnected because they were un- able to pay the rent upon the mileage from their home to the post-office ex- change. The disconnections were not confined to the farming community. "The amount of money outstanding on unpaid telephone accounts," Mr. Green added, "is so considerable that I do not reel justified in continuing to make services available without the payment of the usual tariff, or unless some acceptable guarantee is forthcom- ing that the indebtedness will be met."
DAIRY PRODUCE BOARD MEETS Redaction in Cold Store Rates Wanted Melbourne, September 30. [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931
DAIRY PRODUCE BOARD MEETS Reduction in Cold Store Rates Wanted Melbourne, September 30. A meeting of the Australian Dairy Produce Export Board was held on Monday and yesterday. The board discussed the rates charged by the various cold stores in Australia for freezing and storing of butter, and it was decided to ask for reduced rates. Considerable time was devoted to pro- posals for the formation of a company in Australia to undertake the prepara- tion and marketing of Australian but ter in pat form in the United King- dom. It was decided to submit the proposals to a conference of co-opera- tive and proprietary- interests at a meet- ing to be held in Sydney on Decem- ber 8 During last season, in order to assist the Minister for Markets in his nego- tiations with the Canadian Government in connection with the reciprocal trade treaty, the board imposed restrictions on the shipment of butter to Canada and the Untied States. The meeting decided to recommend the repeal of these regulation...

Drowsy Feeling CAUSED BY LIVER AND KIDNEY TROUBLE [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931
Drowsy Feeling CAUSED BY LIVER AND KIDNEY TROUBLE Miss P. Clare. Fitzgerald-street, Cam- &nbsp; perdown, N.S.W.. writes:— "Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills were a decided bene- &nbsp; fit to me when I was suffering from a drowsy feeling, my liver and kidneys being out of order. I was bilious and constipated, and can honestly say that the use of Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills rectified my health and put me in the pink of condition."
