MOTORING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 23 March 1923
MOTORING NOTES. -:o: -&lt; Gradually the Inter-state motor cycle record between Sydney and Melbourne is being brought more in line with the car record. For many years the motor cycle time for the 5651 miles lagged many hours behind that of the fastest time by car. The reason being that the physical strain on the motor cyclist played an Important part in this run, but with the gradual im- provement of the Interstate highway the motor cycle has gradually lessened the gap between the two classes of records. The respective times now are-car record 13hrs. 47mins., motor cycle record 14hrs. 43mins. The latter performance was es- tablished last week by T. Benstead of N.S. W. on a Harley-Davidson solo machine. He left Melbourne at four In the morning and was at the Sydney G.P.O. at 6.43 p.m. the same day. Benstead's time was Ihr. lOmins. faster than the previous motor cycle record. It is just 10 years since the Dunlop Rub- ber Co. offered a 20 guinea gold watch to the first motor cy...
THE COTTON CROP. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 23 March 1923
THE COTTON CROP. Yesterday saw the official ' opening, as it might be termed, of the first real cotton season in Queensland since the American Civil War, as on that day the Government commenced to take delivery of cotton from growers. This great new industry can~now certainly be reckoned as successfully launched, and it is up to the farmers to produce the best possible grade of cotton, and so at one stroke establish the name of the Australian article 'as second to none in the world. It is very largely lack of qual- ity that has put the beef industry where it is to-day, and a repetition of this disas- trous lack of care must at all costs be avoided in the new venture. So . far- this new primary industry has turned up trumps, and conservative estimated place the value of the year's crop, at« £700,000, while one or two of the. more optomistic ones put it as high as a million sterling. Probably the latter is too high, but when it is realised that even- a couple of years ago cotton was a...

Southern Racing. DONCASTER AND SYDNEY CUP. SYDNEY, Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 23 March 1923
Southern Racing. -: o : DONCASTER AND SYDNEY CUP. SYDNEY, Thursday. Wl)at little business was done to-day in connection with the Doncaster and Syd- ney Cup did not affect the general trend of the market. All Gold and Fleuriste held - their places at the head of affairs. For the Doncaster there were fair sums placed for Sir Maitland and Naharadan, but they were quoted many points longer than the two favourites. King Ingoda was top of the market for the Cup and after him followed Rivoli. There was a movement in favour of Caserta, but noth- ing very important developed. Cypher and Heir Apparent were also nibbled at. SYDNEY, Friday. All Gold and Fleuriste ar enow al- most equal favourites for the Doncaster. King Ingoda is firm favoui'ite for the Sydney Cup.
THE Q.U.P. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 23 March 1923
î"-~ ' THE Q.U.P. The Queensland United Party has se- lected Mr. C. Taylor as leader and Mr. Green, probably the most prominent Nor- therner, as Deputy Leader. There has been no further announcement in regard to Sir William ' Glasgow, but it is rumoured that his services may be available at a later date if required. Mr. H. G. Bradley, who has had a quarter of a century's political experience, and who has been so markedly successful in organising the Northern Coun- try Party, "has been appointed General Secretary, ' The platform of the United Party as well as the Constitution and rules has been drafted and will see the light this week", and immediate steps will -be taken to put the new machinery into operation. The ,position now is that the old National Democratic Council which fought some ' strenuous political battles in the past has "been, swallowed up. The remnant of the Couritry Party, however, &till remains as a separate entity and though there is a 'prospectif this remn...
Women's Conference. MELBOURNE, Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 23 March 1923
Women's Conference. -: o :-" MELBOURNE, Thursday. Problems affecting women in general and particularly those living in remote country districts were disq'ussed at the fifth annual conference of the women's section of the Victorian Farmers' Union to-day. Lady Forster said she considered the women of the bush were the backbones of the country, and expressed the hope that similar organisations would be es- tablished in every part of the Common- wealth. The president (Mrs. Ethel Res leigh) said women on farms worked hard- er than any other section of the commun- ity, and it too long had been the recog- nised practice to make farming pay with unpaid labour of women folk and fam- ilies. The sooner a new system was ar- rived at, when all would be paid over- time for long houx's, the bettex«. At pres- ent, a few people made slaves of them- selves and their families to produce cheap food for many who were in receipt of high wages.
Faith Healing. THANKSGIVING SERVICE. MELBOURNE, Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 23 March 1923
Faith Healing. THANKSGIVING SERVICE. MELBOURNE, Thursday. Addressing a thanksgiving service for the success of the Hickson healing miss- ion in St. Paul's Cathedral, Dr. Harring- ton Leese (Anglican Archbishop of Mel- bourne) said he was thankful for the lack of extravagance and hysteria in testimon- ials given. Rev. Wilson read from the pul- pit extracts from hundreds of letters writ- ten by sufferers testifying to cures in a wide range of diseases. Dr. Leese said the Church did not care how these things were explained as long as all channels ex- plained as long as all c ththmbthmhhmh plored led ?ultimately to God.
MEAT INDUSTRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 23 March 1923
MEAT INDUSTRY. Mr. O. S. 'Colman, \ General Manager . of the Queensland Meat Export Co., who has returned from a jvlsit.jt'p England and the Continent in connection'.with the . meat" in- dustry, has some interesting things to say in rçgard to future prospects of the ex portwtrade. One of the most satisfactory things he mentioned was that there is now very little -'prejudice, against Australian meat in England-a prejudice Vorn of ex- perience of old stocks, now worked »off and that .the public realises that freshly imported meat is quite a different article ' to the old stuff they had been-used to. The disappearance of this discrimination against Australian meat at least gives hope for the future. Another satisfactory fea- ture he noted during his stay in England was that considerable improvement was shown last year in the butchering and dressing of Australian meat, though it was still not equal to the South American pro .duct. According to Mr. Colman one of the great factors against...
