FALSE PRETENCES. VALUELESS CHEQUES. ROCKHAMPTON, January 15. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930

FALSE PRETENCES. VALUELESS CHEQUES.     ROCKHAMPTON, January 15.   In these days of advanced busi- ness methods, it is hard to recon- cile the ease with which valueless cheques are passed, but a plausible   tongue can evidently still be used to some effect. Jack M'Kinnon, a Victorian, is one who can tell a story which yields him profit, for the time being at any rate. But such prosperity is short lived. In the Police Court yesterday, before Messrs. A. H. Scott and A. Sim-   mins, JJ.P., M'Kinnon pleaded   guilty to two charges of false pre-   tences, and was sentenced to three   months' imprisonment on each charge, the sentences to be concur- rent.   The first charge against him was that, on December 28th last, he falsely pre- tended to John Alexander Coutts Ander- son, of Wowan, that a cheque for £8, drawn on the Commercial Banking Co. of Sydney (Rockhampton branch) ...

AGRiCULTURAL SOCIETY FORTHCOMING SHOW. ROCKHAMPTON, January 14. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930

AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY FORTHCOMING SHOW. ROCKHAMPTON, January 14. Apart from another discussion on the question of the admission of polled Here- fords to compete against the horned classes, the appointment of the sub-   committees to revise the schedule for this year's Show was the chief business at the monthly meeting of the Agricul- tural Society yesterday. The chairman (Mr. J. W. Nuttall) presided and 21 others were present.   In connection with the Society's re- quest for permission to conduct an art union in aid of funds for the erection of an agricultural hall, the Justice Depart- ment asked that they be furnished with a list of the proposed prizes, which must not include cash, land, bonds, buildings, shares in companies, spirituous liquor   or tobacco. It was also desired that an assurance be given that the prizes were of British or Australian manufacture. — The matter was referred to the Finance Committee and Mr. Chisholm. Cane Exhibits. ...

LOCAL LEAGUE FORMED ENCOURAGING TOURISTS ENTHUSIASTIC MEETING. ROCKHAMPTON, January 11. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930

LOCAL LEAGUE FORMED ENCOURAGING TOURISTS ENTHUSIASTIC MEETING. ROCKHAMPTON, January 11.   In the past Rockhampton has made many laudable efforts to en- courage tourists to visit this centre, but no move has been under- taken capable of such wide expansion as the project decided upon by a public meeting last night, when a Tourist League was formed to act in conjunction with the Queensland Government Tourist Bureau. There was a representative gathering of about 40, the Mayor (Ald. R. Cousins) presiding.   The meeting was called at the instigation of the Commissioner     for Railways, who sought the co-operation of a public body in the city, to be termed the Tourist League, to assist in developing tourist   resorts and tourist traffic in Queensland. The meeting was most en- thusiastic and it was unanimously decided to form the League. The Mayor of the city was appointed president of the League and all the public and sport...

AUSTRALIAN LAND CLEAR. ING MACHINERY ABROAD. THE TREWHELLA MONKEY GRUBBER IN BRAZIL [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930

AUSTRALIAN LAND CLEAR- ING MACHINERY ABROAD. THE TREWHELLA MONKEY GRUBBER IN BRAZIL.   Over 20 years ago Messrs. Tre- whella appointed Mr. Arthur Robin- son their Queensland representative. Demonstrations of the utility and power of the various Trewhella lines were   given throughout the State, arousing   great interest. From that time there   has been a steady progression, more powerful and up-to-date machines, jacks,   and grubbers for the work were invent- ed and introduced, the firm constantly keeping ahead of all competitors.   This Australian concern, starting in     a small way in Victoria, now forwards   its manufactures to all parts of the   world, to reach which it was necessary   to establish works in the Old Country before the war.   It may interest readers to know that His Majesty the King has purchased Trewhella Mon...

TIMES HAVE CHANGED. NEWSPAPER STYLES IN 1861. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930

TIMES HAVE CHANGED. NEWSPAPER STYLES IN 1861.   Seventy years is not a long time. There are men alive and active to- day, taking place in the world's affairs who were children then. But in some respects 70 years is an age. Last week we brushed the dust   from files and brought to the light of day newspaper advertisemente of   70 years ago, possessing a quaint-   ness and individuality unlike any- thing of recent times. It is a fas- cinating thing delving into the past, and the files repay further investi- gation, not only in the advertising sections but in the literary columns also.       For journalism has changed greatly   over 70 years. The literary style of the Victorian age imbibed the mincing fanciful and pedantic spirit of the time Paradoxically it betrayed at once its unwillingness to employ plain terms and its brutal frankness, The literary columns are thick with personal...

BLYTH HANGED MURDER OF WIFE. ADELAIDE, January [?]. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930

BLYTH HANGED MURDER OF WIFE. ADELAIDE, January 9. The sentence of death passed on Tho- mas Blyth on December 12th for the murder of his wife was duly carried out at the Adelaide gaol at 8 o'clock this morning. The condemned man met death calmly. He thanked the warders and gaol authorities for the consideration they had shown him. He was pinioned and walked on to the scaffold in silence. Just before the hood was fitted over his head he said, ''There is only one thing I regret, and that is that I did not get Warren.'' Immediately after his head was covered and the sentence was executed.   London Museum has received a gift   of two pieces of silk brocade from the mantle Charles Stuart (Charles I.) wore on the way to his execution.

THE WEATHER. IN QUEENSLAND. REVIEW OF 1929. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930

THE WEATHER. IN QUEENSLAND. REVIEW OF 1929. The following notes on the meteorological conditions in Queens- land during 1929 have been compiled by the Meteorological Bureau, Queensland: — The following notes on the meterolo- gical conditions in Queensland during 1929 have been compiled by the Meteoro- logical Bureau, Queensland: — JANUARY. Two depressions of definite character operated. The first formed between Mackay and Twin Hills on the 11th and passed out to sea at night. The second seems to have formed between Towns- ville and Willis Island on the 21st. It advanced rapidly towards the former during the day but receded at night,   and on the 24th it had moved away to the eastwards of Willis Island. High temperature prevailed through- out the interior during the greater part of the month, the highest reading being 118 deg. at Winton on the 19th and 20th. The lowest screen temperature was 48 deg. at Stanthorpe on the 26th. Rainfall aggregates were well above the avera...

SUMMARY, 1929. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930

SUMMARY, 1929. In its broad characteristics the dis- tribution of rainfall in Queensland was very similar to that of the preceding year, that is to say, the total regis- trations were subnormal over approx- imately four-fifths of the State, the only essential difference being over- average aggregates in a larger area of Cape York Peninsula, and a smaller por- tion of the south-eastern quarter. Pre- cipitation for the whole of 1929 was greater than the normal as follows : —   (a) North from a line drawn from Nor- manton through Georgetown to Innis- fail, due almost entirely to good rain of a general nature in January and April ; (b) between Gilliat, Richmond and Stamford, chiefly because of State- wide rain in April and good thunder- storms in November ; (c) the greater part of the South Coast division and   the south-eastern corner of the Darl-   ing Downs ; (d) between Chinchilla and   Columboola ; and (e) at Ingham, Cap- ella and...

LETTER FROM LONDON. LONDON, DECEMBER 5, 1929. Angry Constituents. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930

LETTER FROM LONDON. LONDON, DECEMBER 5, 1929.   Angry Constituents. ''L. G.'' has certainly scored over his opposition rivals. There was one conceivable excuse for the Gov- ernment's extension of an increased   unemployment dole to youngsters just leaving school; that was the firm con- dition that they attended some train-   ing centre. Against her own better judgment, Miss Bondfield dropped that safeguarding provision to placate the   Maxtonites. When a Liberal amend-   ment reinstating it was moved last week, the Labour Party, to their in- tense surprise and glee, got a comfort- able majority over the combined Liberal and Conservative vote. But   the Government would have been de-   fea[t]ed, and a grave public scandal   averted in the matter of doles for   loafing adolescents, but for the unex- plained absence of over 100 Conser- vative members. Shoals of indignant...

CURRENCY AND CREDIT THEORIES II. THE MONEY MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930

CURRENCY AND CREDIT THEORIES II. THE MONEY MARKET. By Pertinax.       In his second article, the writer fulfils his promise to furnish a brief orthodox account of the existing money system at work. The outburst which the first article evoked from Rockhampton's inveterate currency reformer prompts us to empasise the fact that the series si purely expository, and in no sense propagandist. Money is a mystery only to those who   do not or who will not understand it.   The currency enthusiast who proclaims   that money is a mystery may or may not   understand its workings. Either he has   failed to understand the subject or he   desires to regard it as a mystery in or-   der to enhance the virtue of his own   revelations.   Functions of Money.   The prime functions of money are to   act as a measure of value ...

ROUND THE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930

ROUND THE WORLD. (By Cosmopolis). During some celebrations in America it seems to have been taken for granted that Edison was the inventor of the electric light. There is not the slight- est foundation for this claim. A Mr. Lane Fox-Pitt took out a patent for lighting by electricity on October 10th, 1878. Edison, of course, did a good deal to improve the electric lamp and brought a rather crude idea to a high state of perfection, but it did not or- iginate with him. As history is written it is difficult to find out who was the inventor of anything. If there is one statement that is reiterated, it is that   James Watt was the inventor of the steam-engine. This is an utter fable; steam engines were used for pumping water in England and Scotland before Watt was born. James Watt was em- ployed by the University of Glasgow to attend to their scientific instruments. One of the professors brought him a model of a Newcomen engine and asked him to repair it. Watt took it pieces,...

GRACEMERE BLACKS. "BOLD AND DETERMINED" [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930

Thursday, January 16, 1930       GRACEMERE BLACKS. ''BOLD AND DETERMINED'' A link with the past is supplied by perusal of a letter, yellow with age, and   in the characteristic caligraphy of the time, kindly loaned to us by Mr. Alister Archer, of Gracemere. The letter was written by Mr. Charles Archer, who, it will be remembered, left Eidsvold on Tuesday, April 12th, 1853, passed through the Dawson Valley, and dis- covered the Fitzroy River on Sunday, May 8th. The letter is undated, beyond that the month of January is given, and ap- parently was written from Gladstone. It reads as follows: — ''I do myself the honour to in- form you that upon the night of Tuesday the — January, the blacks made a most determined and syste- matic attack upon the Messrs. Elliott, who are now encamped with their stock upon my run and within four miles of my head station. ''I am now about to proceed to the Fitzroy with a decked sailing   boa...

VISIT OF MR. F. M. FORDE MEETING AT MONTO. ROCKHAMPTON, January 13. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930

VISIT OF MR. F. M. FORDE MEETING AT MONTO. ROCKHAMPTON, January 13.   The Acting Minister for Trade and   Customs (Hon. F. M. Forde), addressed   a large public meeting at Monto on Wed- nesday last. After briefly traversing the points dealt with in his recent speeches on the cotton industry at Rock- hampton, Wowan and Biloela, Mr. Forde said that he had been immensely im- pressed with the wonderful potentiali- ties of the entire cotton belt from the Dawson Valley through the Callide Val- ley to the Upper Burnett and Monto districts. The soil and climate appear- ed to be almost ideal for cotton-grow- ing. There were many thousands of acres of the best land available in these districts, but farms only occurred here and there and it was evident that the prospects had only been scratched. Thousands of families could find a liv- ing in the cotton belt, provided re- munerative markets for their product could be established. The town of Monto was a go...
