THE ADVERTISING CONTRO VERSY. In., connection with ? tin recent discussion in t\v2 Shire Council in regard to advertising rates, when it was stated that , the 'Review's' account for certain advertising1 was Jow?r than that of, our contemporary, an insinua tion is now 'made that we have not charged tho ' Council the N.S.W.

RESIDENCE UNDER THE LAND ACT. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 6 June 1916
RESIDENCE 0OTER ^HE LAND The residence conditions un der our Land Acts are both per plexing and ridiculously unfair. The confusing part -of the busi ness, is that different conditions attach to different classes of hol dings. For instance, if the hol der of a conditional purchase de sires ro ruini ins condition or residence attaching to it on an other holding, he is not permit ted to do so unless the latter is classed as a holding under the Crown Lands Act. A freehold which has been a C.P. is regar ded as such a holding. On the other hand an auction purchase ?? IP not. At last week's meeting of the Board the holder of C.P.1 applied to perform the residence attaching k to the former on a freehold block which had been purchased at auction, and on which he had resided practical ly all his life. He was refused permission because- the law was right up against him. The hol der of a Grown' L^ase and several other tenures under the Land Act arc not only permitted to carry out, residence con...

OUR WOOL TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 6 June 1916
OUR WOOL TEADE. At the time of .Writing no ex planation lias, been vouchsafed by the Federal authorities as to their reasons for prohibiting the ex port of wool from Australia to countries other than Great Bri tain. That they have some sub stantial reason for adopting such -m extreme measure ? may be fair ly taken for granted. What it is will sooner or later be disclo sed. Meanwhile an article ap ' pearing in an influential trade paper may possibly account for the milk in the coepanut. This points out that the British Go vernment has not been I very suc cessful in its management of the large quantities of wool goods; purchased since the commence ment of the war, and it goes on to say that 'the measures that are hanging over the head of 'h« industry are the -direct out- ^ come of the defects* of the^ast.'- it is suggested that these new 'measures will take 'the form of ? controlling prices.

BRITISH FRONT: FORTNIGHT'S HAPPENINGS. TJiougji no official news is giv en of the fighting on the Austra lian front, and the Australians are not mentioned infSir Doug las Haig's communiques, the fol lowing is a complete record of the happenings' on the' entire British front in France and Flan ders during the past fortnight, in which the Australian section of ths line has taken a full and active share, as shown by the casualties already published in Australia. The most active centres of the fighting have been Souchez Vil lage and Vimy Ridge. The fury of the artillery attack at Arimy has not been equalled ' since September. During the bombard-, ment on the 21st -smoke and dust could be seen for miles. All subsequent fighting occurred in a cloud, which sornstinvrs obliter ated the front trenches. The enemy concentrated 100 batteries on a small fr-on^. wiping oik thn trench, and the German infantry had little to face except our barrage 'tire. During the 22nd and 23rd our patrols at Vimy...

In consequence of this short supply the market showed ~ a decided improvement, ranging from Is to is €d^-: per head. The vardinsr on Thursday last, totalling upwards iof 23,000, evidently proved beyond require ments. ' Opening sales were firm,' but at rates showing a 'decline equal to the improvement of the ' previous Monday. Well-grown quality lambs were again in good demand, and the prices realised for these were most satisfactory. Limited supplies of sheep are ?showing ahead, and point to pre sent improved rates being more than maintained. Thursday's supply of cattle was more than anticipated, - and evidently proved beyond buyers' requirements Op ening sales showed a decline of £1 and upwards, and this tone prevailed throughout.

Wool Again Held Up! NONE FOR OUR ALLIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 6 June 1916
Wool Again Held Up ! NONE FOR OUR ALLIES. With characteristic watchful ness, John Bridge and Co. have lost, no time in revealing what, in their opinion, is the real sig nificance of the severe embargo, upon wool for .(exportation to any territory outside the United King dom, announced bv the Minister for' Customs in Monday's press. G&heral feeling throughout the trade would seem to be exceed ingly -apprehensive that this lat est prohibition will have the ef fect of handing over our wool product to the tender mercies of the Bradford man, who would then have it in his, power to ab solutely control prices. Interview ed in regard to the situation, John Bridge and Co. expressed the opinion that the restriction up- - oji the export of all wool to ports outside the United King dom was probably the result of what had. followed upon the re solution passed some. few, months ago by the Wool Committee of ths Bradford Chamber of Com merce. It was then resolved to approach ths Trade t Dep...
