SUICIDE IN BUSH Unknown Man Found Hanging MILDURA, Today. At Mallee Cliffs, a sheep station 14 miles from Mildura, the body of a man 6 ft. high, of thin build, and aged 24 years, clad in a blue twill suit with light tan boots, has been dis- covered. Evidently the man had been dead for four months. A strap had been passed through a buckle to form a running noose. The noose was round the man's neck and the other end of the strap was tied to a bough of the tree.
COTTON BOLL WEEVIL Investigations in the Territory MELBOURNE, Today. [Newspaper Article] — News — 24 July 1923
COTTON BOLL WEEVIL Investigations in the Territory MELBOURNE, Today. Sen. Pearce, Miniser for Home and Territories, has no official report of the discovery of the cotton boll weevil pest in the Northern Territory. A re- port from Queensland stated that &nbsp; cotton growers in that State had been advised that the boll weevil had appeared in the Territory, and they were advised to take necessary pre- cautions. Sen. Pearce said this morning that he had sent a telegram to the Administrator asking if the report were correct. Col. Evans, the Queens- land Government's cotton expert, is in the Territory investigating the suitableness of certain areas for cot- ton growing.
FRANCE'S NEW DEMANDS Important Proposals Expected (PUBLISHED IN "THE TIMES.") LONDON, July 19. [Newspaper Article] — News — 24 July 1923
FRANCE'S NEW DEMANDS Important Proposals Expected (PUBLISHED IN "THE TIMES.") LONDON, July 19. A Paris message remarks that the difference between the Allies and the French on the economic side of the re- parations question is not so great as is mentioned. News "perhaps extremely impor- tant" of a proposal which, it is believed, represents a serious effort on the part of the French Government to reach accord, is to the effect that, for the moment, nothing shall be asked of Germany except sums to repair the devastated regions (France's share is put at 26 milliard gold marks); toge- ther with annuities towards Britain to meet payments to America, estimated at betwecen 35 and 40 milliards, which might be forthcoming in the next 10 or 15 years. Thereafter the financial situation could be reviewed in the light of adjustment of war debts. It is anticipated that Britain, France, and Germany could all agree to such a scheme.

GIRL CLERK KILLED Run Over By Train &nbsp; NORTH FREMANTLE TRAGEDY &nbsp; PERTH, Today. Robert Stanley, of the Harbor Works Department, saw a woman standing near the North Fremantale level cros- sing at 9.30 o'clock last night, and re- turning a little later noticed an attache case on a post near the line. Connect- ing the case with the woman he had &nbsp; seen he made a search and found the woman's body ten yards away along- side the line. The body was dreadfully multilated. An address in the attache case gave the name of Dorothy Millray. The body was subsequently identified as that of Miss Millray, 24 years, clerk, employed by Elder, Smith & Co. at Fremantle, who lived with her parents at Fremantle. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; In the attache case were a purse, some papers, and a parcel addressed to Miss Kelly, care of Dr. Way, Boulder City. &nbsp; The girl's parents cannot account for their daughter's presence in North Fre- ...
TURKISH TREATY OR PEACE Pre-War Concessions Stand British Have Access to Anzac LONDON, July 23. [Newspaper Article] — News — 24 July 1923
TURKISH TREATY OR PEACE Pre-War Concessions Stand British Have Access to Anzac (REUTER.) LONDON, July 23. &nbsp; &nbsp; The Lausanne conference lengthily summarises the main points in which the Treaty of Peace differs from the draft treaty presented to the Turks on January 31. Most of the points have already been published, but the treaty also provides that the pre-war Ottoman public debt be distributed between Turkey and the territories detached from Turkey after the Balkan and Great Wars, and that the foreign post offices of Turkey be suppressed. Conditions were provided under which the British Empire is to enjoy access to the Anzac area, and visits thereto are to be facilitated. All concessions duly granted to the Allied Nationals before October 29, 1914, are to be maintained, and the Mu- dania convention will remain in force until the end of the evacuation from Constantinople and the Straits, subject to all measures being taken to avoid in- cidents, and subject t...

PEACE WITH TURKEY Russia Will Sign Treaty (REUTER.) LONDON, July 20. Chitcherin has replied to the invita- tion of the Lausanne Conference agree- ing to sign the Straits Convention of Constantinople within the specified time of three weeks. The Russian reply is controversial, reiterating the Russian objections to the settlement, but agreeing to sign in regard to the most important para- graph. Photographs of the mine &nbsp; &nbsp; fire used on this page and elsewhere, were taken by the Special Photographer of "The News"
COAL DISPUTE Early Resumption Certain SYDNEY, Today. [Newspaper Article] — News — 24 July 1923
COAL DISPUTE Early Resumption Certain SYDNEY, Today. The action of the West Maitland miners in rejecting by a small majo- &nbsp; rity the compromise conditions need &nbsp; not be taken as detrimental to the settlement of the coal dispute reached through the mediation of Mr. Oakes. The position has been engineered solely by the Communists, actually a small section of the workers on the field. It is anticipated that today's meeting on the Newcastle fields will place the issue beyond doubt. An early resump- tion of work is certain in view of the &nbsp; attack by the Communists. There is &nbsp; every likelihood now that the execu- &nbsp; tive will rigidly enforce its policy of &nbsp; heavily fining persons deemed guilty &nbsp; of fomenting trouble or provoking unauthorised stoppages. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;
HELMETS OF HEROISM FACING UNDERGROUND DEATH AT MINE FIRE [Newspaper Article] — News — 24 July 1923
HELMETS OF HEROISM &nbsp; FACING UNDERGROUND DEATH AT MINE FIRE &nbsp; There will be a golden border round the smoke-stained, fire-twisted page, &nbsp; which will tell the story of the great fire in the Broken Hill Central mine. The &nbsp; daily, hourly heroism which takes men grimly into an underground inferno of flame and poison gas is not new on the Barrier. Four hundred feet below the surface, smoke helmet on head and hose in hand, fourteen fire-fighters are steadily winning their battle against the out- break in the rich mine. Flames five feet long; water three feet deep; heat so intense that the eyes have to close while mind and hand work on; swirling smoke and choking gases; these are foes worth conquering. &nbsp; Behind the firemen with their oxygen helmets, are the mine officials, &nbsp; whose hours run round the clock and upon whom falls the full responsibility and planning. Not an officer of the mine would hesitate to take t...
CIVIC RECEPTION [Newspaper Article] — News — 24 July 1923
CIVIC RECEPTION The civic reception at the Adelaide Town Hall was attended by a repre- sentative gathering. Sir Henry Bar- &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; well (Premier) and Lady Barwell, Sir John Bice (Chief Secretary), Mr. G. R. Laffer (Minister of Immigration), and Mr. J. Gunn, M.P. (Leader of the Op- position) were among those present. Mr. L. Cohen, the Lord Mayor, in welcoming the visitors, said the delega- tion was the most important that, had ever visited Australia. It was hoped that its members would be able to &nbsp; show them how to fill up the empty spaces with desirable citizens. They would also have to bear in mind the necessity of finding markets for their produce. The Premier stressed the importance of Empire development, with which the problem of Empire trade was linked up. The latter would have to be on a much more satisfactory footing than it was at present. He hoped the forthcoming Imperial Conference would prove to be the turni...
WELCOME TO "THE NEWS" "WILL SATISFY LONG WANT" [Newspaper Article] — News — 24 July 1923
WELCOME TO "THE NEWS" "WILL SATISFY LONG WANT" "It is many years since the previous &nbsp; visit of a pressman to our council meet- ing, and I think the occasion worthy of &nbsp; &nbsp; a toast. I call upon Ald. Auld to pro- &nbsp; pose the toast of 'The News'," said the &nbsp; Mayor of Kensington and Norwood &nbsp; &nbsp; (Ald. W. Essery) when the councillors &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; had adjourned to the parlor after their last meeting. Ald. Auld said it came as a great surprise to him to be called upon, but it was none the less pleasing. He was very glad to see a reporter with them. The presence of "The News" represen- tative spoke well for the enterprise of the paper. "The News" would satisfy a long felt want. Publication of reports of their meetings would do a lot to ad- vance the interests of the council and district, and he felt that the work they were doing warranted it. Cr. Thomas said the innovation...
PLENTY OF FIREWOOD Prompt Delivery Promised [Newspaper Article] — News — 24 July 1923
PLENTY OF FIREWOOD Prompt Delivery Promised Contrary to the position a few weeks ago, firewood is now available in the metropolitan area in practically any quantity, with a prompt delivery. That was the opinion expressed by a Mile- End merchant. "So far as I can see," he said, "there is no shortage now. We are able to supply all the demands made to us, and promptly, too. "Most of our wood is coming down from the Murray lands line, and the railways are giving us a fair go. We can't expect to get trucks at a minute's notice owing to the wet weather and other considerations, but we are able to keep up our stocks." "Hasn't the price hardened lately?" he was asked. "Not anything worth speaking of, considering the winter we have been having. Our business, of course, is er- ratic, and it is bound to fluctuate. "Stocks are good. We have now in hand about three or four thousand tons of firewood, with more coming in every week."

UNIFORM TRAM FARES Zone System Preferred Mr. Goodman States Merits [Newspaper Article] — News — 24 July 1923
UNIFORM TRAM FARES Zone System Preferred Mr. Goodman States Merits "The zone system of fares in use in Adelaide is, in my opinion, the fairest," said Mr. W. G. T. Goodman, Chief Engineer and General Manager of the Municipal Tramways Trust, this morn- ing, when asked the merits of the American and Adelaide ticket systems. The uniform fare system is in use in America. Passengers pay a five-cent fare, and can travel any distance from 500 yards up to five miles. This means that passengers travelling only short distances have to pay for those who go long distances. The great advantage of the uniform system, which has always been in operation in the United States, is that it facilitates the collection of fares. It allows the pay as you enter scheme to be adopted. "This latter system," Mr. Goodman &nbsp; said, "could not be introduced effec- tively in Adelaide, because passengers tender 2/ and 2/6 pieces, and even 10/ notes, for their fares, which means that change has to be given....
RELIGIOUS SERVICES TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — News — 24 July 1923
RELIGIOUS SERVICES TO THE EDITOR. A Plain Man:—The necessity for re- vision of religious services does not stop at that relating to marriage. There is great need for revision of funeral services. But before touching particu- lary upon that may I point out that there is room for improvement in "The Lord's Prayer." What reasonable objection can be raised to the substitution of "who" for "which" in the opening words? Would it not be better to say "leave us not in temptation" instead of "lead us not into temptation?" Would a child ad- dress his earthly father in the language of the prayer I am referring to? Again, why not substitute "each" for "this" in the reference to daily bread? "Give us this day our daily bread" is palpably out of place at an evening service. With reference to funeral services, taking, for example, that of the Church of England, is there not a great deal that could with advantage be left out and much that could be improved by alteration? The service is inordinately...

Persons Wanted [Newspaper Article] — News — 24 July 1923
Persons Wanted MOUNT LOFTY.—Single-handed Cook. Ap- ply by letter.—Mrs.——, Crafers. She washes up the dishes As she reads the latest book, And she has my fondest wishes, Does the single-handed cook. For she's out to set the fashion, Of the singleness of things; And she'll serve a single ration When the breakfast bell she rings. But what I'd like to settle Is how she carries out the "coup," And, with one hand on the kettle, How she stirs the bally soup?
