WERE GOOD JUDGES. Tipped Cup Winners. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 30 August 1933
WERE GOOD JUDGES. Tipped Cup Winners. Pat. Kennlff's rifle stood for years in a corner of the Brisbane Supreme Court registry, which is now being altered to provide more suitable fit- tings for the filing of documents. The weapon is in good condition, and, if oiled, could still be used to knock over a kangaroo or fetch down a hawk. This interesting relic was removed from the registry recently, and placed in a big vault in which is gathered a variety of legal exhibits admitted In the course of many civil and criminal trials. Two large steel frames crammed with filing cabinets also stood in the regis- try for many years, but a few days ago they were pulled down to make way for new shelves. One of the large steel frames was covered with scrib- bling, which included tips for Mel- bourne Cups of other days, and" the scribblers were good judges, for they tipped many winners.

BRITISH COLONY. Fears for Safety. IRAQ MASSACRES. LONDON, August 28. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 30 August 1933
BRITISH COLONY. Fears for Safety. IRAQ MASSACRES. LONDON, August 28. The special correspondent of the "Daily Mail" at Bagdad states that tho British authorities are worried concerning the security of the Chris- tian communities and even of the British colony in Iraq. It is feared that Europe may take an anti-Moslem view of the Assyrian massacre, further alienating the Mohammedans. "I consider," the correspondent continues, " that the Christian allega- tions of unnameable atrocities have not been proved, and probably are generally untrue, while the Arab ex- planations are unconvincing. I learn that the massacre occurred while the Iraq army was inspecting the citizenship papers of disarmed Assyrians. A shot was fired, &nbsp; whereupon indiscriminate shoot- ing took place until 315 persons &nbsp; were dead. Kurds and Arabs stripped &nbsp; the dead in their customary manner and looted the houses."
