AUSTRALIA'S OIL REQUIREMENTS "Can be Found Here," Says Expert [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 26 February 1931
AUSTRALIA'S OIL REQUIREMENTS "Can be Found Here," Says Expert "The first bore put down by the com- pany at Mount Barker should prove be- yond doubt that South Australia can produce ail the oil that Australia re- quires," states Mr. N. A. Frean, an oil expert, who recenQy returned from America, where he made an inspection of the Califonuan oilfields. Mr. Frean's opinion is contained in the report of the directors of the Mount Barker Oil Company Limited, which was adopted at the first annual general meeting of shareholders of the company yesterday. The directors stated that Mr. Frean had convinced them that his methods of locating oil had been greatiy strengthened as a result of his Cali fornian trip, and in view of the infor mation he had placed before them, they felt sure that the time was opportune to begin the raising of sufficient capital to put down deep bores with every chance of success. The report stated that the directors had eet out to raise £25,000 to purchase a plant capa...
LAKES ENTRANCE OILFIELDS DR. WOOLNOUGH SAYS YIELD WILL BE SMALL ROOM FOR OPTIMISM Canberra, February 25. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 26 February 1931
LAKES ENTRANCE OILFIELDS DR. WOOLNOUGH SAYS YIELD WILL BE SMALL ROOM FOR OPTIMISM Canberra, February 25. While extravagant hopes for a big oil find at Lakes Entrance (Vic- toria) are not justified, oil formation conditions in the district give room for reasonable optimism, and indi cate that continued prospecting of the field is necessary, says the Com monwealth Geological Adviser (Dr. Woolnongh), in a report to the Government, As the result of a tour of inspection in the district, he declares, however, that the unequi vocal existence of a small oilfield at Lakes Entrance shows that con ditions for oil formation are not en tirely absent. "Present indications, including the very considerable gas flow recently en countered," he says, "do not justify any very extravagant hopes in connection witn tiie Lafc.es .Entrance Held, tne yield of winch is likely w be small. Geological survey methods of investigation are impossible since most 01 use area is covered by recent formations. Any state...
TIME BOMB MISSES INTENDED VICTIM President of Cuba Escapes Death Twice in One Day HAVANA, February 23. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 26 February 1931
TIME BOMB MISSES INTENDED VICTIM President of Cuba Escapes Death Twice in One Day HAVANA, February 23. The President of Cuba (Gen. Gerardo Machardo) had a narrow escape from death yesterday when a bomb exploded within the walls of the presidential palace near the president. A soldier who was posted as guard on the roof confessed to having lowered a time bomb through an air shaft to explode when Machado left his bed at his usual early morning hour. The soldier, how ever, did not know about recent plumb ing adjustments which had left a pipe extended through an aperture. This prevented the bomb from reaching its intended position. The explosion shattered the apart ments over Machado's head. This was the climax to a series of bombiners which have terrified the city for many weeks. The day before three bombs wrecked the Governmental school. On Saturday a dozen exploded in various parts of the city. Machado escaned death again on Tuesday. He was nearing the end of a public address when a ...

The Advertiser and Register ADELAIDE: THURSDAY, FEBRUARY, 26, 1931 WRECKERS VERSUS THE PEOPLE [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 26 February 1931
The Advertiser and Register ADELAIDE: THURSDAY, FEBRUARY, 26, 1931 WRECKERS VERSUS THE PEOPLE Whether, as a centre of political de- moralisation, Sydney is more notorious than Canberra, is at least open to argument; but Mr. Lang's claim to etand alone among Australian poli ticians, admits of no difference of opinion whatever. The Premier ol New South Wales is a prodigy. There is, perhaps, an occasional optimist who still looks for the eleventh-hour con version of Mr. Scullin, or Mr. Theodore, to the simple creed of financial sanity; but Mr. Lang is universally regarded as a hopeless fanatic. As such, he is a grave national danger. His power, as the dictatorial and ruthless Premier of the most populous Australian State, is alarmingly great; and his reckless con duct of the affairs of New South Wales is producing the most serious repur cussions, not only throughout the Com monwealth itself, but far beyond Its borders. Fortunately for Australia, most overseas critics of our affairs see...
GORGED WITH GOLD [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 26 February 1931
GORGED WITH GOLD It has been known, for some time that British and French representatives of finance have been putting their heads together with a view to finding a solu- tion for the much-vexed and ever pressing gold problem; and to-day we have the cabled statement that the prospects are hopeful. As long as there is a gold standard, much will turn^on the question of what is cone with the precious metal. Indeed, as readers of "The Advertiser" will remember, Mr. J. Wardell, in the interesting articles which we published last month, un hesitatingly attributed the slump in wool prices, and, by implication, hi the prices of other primary products, to the gold deficiency produced by hoard ing by the Governments of France and America to an extent infinitely beyond the requirements of those countries. There are shallow thinkers who imagine that, because gold as a currency plays a limited part in transactions, national or international, the world would be none the poorer if it were all cons...
VIEWS AND COMMENTS LEST WE FORGET IMPELLING SENSE OF DUTY To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 26 February 1931
VIEWS AND COMMENTS LEST WE FORGET IMPELLING SENSE OF DUTY To the Editor Sir—Mr. Henry Halloran's admoni- tory letter in your issue of the 21st Inst while stressing the main attri- butes which compose the character of *c tree Briton, overlooks his ingrained ?gnse &lt;&lt; cir-y—a national trail that is tee source of all his other virtues. £Jury is so tremendous a word that it &lt;antics a far more careful attention £roTn us Than a mere feeling of self- j ss:is^ac; :or.. indeed, what one owes ta hisself is purely the outcome of wfaa: he owes to everyone he comes in cocta" with—something one is s??d to do. something not optional. b;r obligatory.

HIRE PURCHASE "TIGHTEN UP THE LAW" To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 26 February 1931
HIRE PURCHASE "TIGHTEN UP THE LAW" To the Editor Sir—Mr. H.H. Pittman refers to my remarks concerning certain abuses of the hire purchase system as so much "political kite flying." When Parlia- ment reassembles that late may swoop down in some unexpected places wi'ii rather disconcerting results. Mr. Pitt man also alleges that my remarks are "a slur on the commercial community generally." If he took the trouble to read my letters carefully he would have seen that I stated that "the general body of creditors were acting most generously towards the farmers."' Most people are law-abiding citizens, yet it is necessary to make and re-make laws to check and punish the comparatively few transgressors. Similarly most busi ness men refrain from exercising the dangerous powers conferred upon them under hire purchase agreements. Yet in my opinion it is necessary to tighten up the law against the unscrupulous few who are battening upon the present misfortune of the farmer. But neither Mr. Pittm...
HOLDEN MERGER ORDINARY SHAREHOLDERS To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 26 February 1931
HOLDEN MERGER ORDINARY SHAREHOLDERS To the Editor Sir—It is surprising that "J.S.W." considers Holden's ordinary share- holders are being "squeezed." I think that most holders will consider them- selves fortunate under present condi tions, if the proposed scheme is adopted. According to "JJS.W.'s" own figures, the ordinary dividend has averaged 12i per cent, for the past six years, which. I think, will be admitted is a very fair return. "J.S.W." quotes balance-sheet figures at June 30, 1930, and gives total reserves at £508.807. but it is quite possible that, if a revalua tion of buildings, plants, and ma chinery and other assets were made on the basis of realisation, the reserve figure would have to be considerably reduced to meet the writing off neces sary to show the assets at their true valuation. Although the ordinary shareholders have benefited so handsomely in past years, I think most shareholders realise that their prospects at the present time do not point to dividends any ...
JUSTICE FOR WHARF VOLUNTEERS "GOOD WORK FOR THE STATE" To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 26 February 1931
JUSTICE FOR WHARF VOLUNTEERS "GOOD WORK FOR THE STATE" To the Editor Sir—Regarding recent developments on the waterfront, I must voice a strong protest on behalf of the volun- teers who came to the help of South Australia when her business was being j held up by the red element. Are these men to be quietly set aside after alii they have gone through? They hsve risked life and limb; they have been subjected to foul insults, blackballed by the trades unions, and forced to go oil rations. Their living has gone, and, they are at a dead end. Their, exemplary behavior is in striking con- | tract'to that of the men who refused; to accept the Arbitration Court's avrard. When confronted with the de cision of the Scullin Government, they obeyed the law, as they have done rieht from the beginning. It is up to j our prominent and law-abiding citizens [ to see that these men do not suffer for I the no'olc role they have played—l -I am. Sir, &c. MEMBER OF CITIZENS' LEAGUE.

INTEREST CHARGES MR. LANG AND REPUDIATION To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 26 February 1931
INTEREST CHARGES MR. LANG AND REPUDIATION To the Editor Sir—Mr. Lang evidently acts on the principle that if you say a thing often [?] and loud enough you will eventually be believed. There is no ?V of coCTterin!i this oolicy except to reiterate the facts. Mr. Lang as sumes that we tan hanfi over primary products in TJlaoe of interest. So we ?n_ tat xre have to co so at world's! putty, sad not at Mr. Lang's "reason s'* &lt;Ye.. Australian) prices. The fact is tia* there is always a sale tor our products —at a price. To talk of forc icc O?e TOrld to accept them at our price is siinalr another of Mr. Lang's rhetorical outbursts. Sb short, ire in South Australia are fceartCv tired of Mr. ScuUin's futility wed Mr Lane's hot air.

It had better come before Mr. Lans succeeds in makinu ts2k of it a carrital offence, as he has ?2rea£v threatened. Mr. Lang has at least clea...
FARMERS' DISABILITIES "FUND DEBTS; WRITE DOWN CAPITAL VALUES" TO the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 26 February 1931
FARMERS' DISABILITIES "FUND DEBTS; WRITE DOWN CAPITAL VALUES" TO the Editor Sir—Referring to Mr. T. C. Stott's letter in your issue of 11th inst., in which he speaks of firms issuing sum- monses to farmers, it appears to me that any firms taking such steps must be ignorant of the real position; other wise, instead of proceeding against the fanner, they would assist him, by bringing pressure to bear on the Gov ernment to accede to the just and rea sonable demands that the farmers are making through the organisation of which Mr. Stott is secretary. In their own interests these firms should rea lise that, if they force the farmer into insolvency, they will not. at this time, be able to collect more than a small fraction of what is owed to them. They should also consider whether the transformation of book debts of. say, £100.000 into cash in hand, £10.000. is going to improve their balance sheets. A funding of fanners' debts combined with a general writing down of capi tal values, debts...
HEAVIER FINES FOR BETTING Magistrate's Warning [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 26 February 1931
HEAVIER FINES FOR BETTING Magistrate's Warning "After to-day anybody who takes on a job of betting for a day's work must understand that he need not expect the minimum penalty, because of that." eaid Mr. E. M. Sabine, P.M., in the Police Court yesterday. The magistrate also stated that de- j fendants found guilty in such cases j ?would not be given a long time in j ?which to pay the fines, -which might amount to anything between £50 and £200. Percy Raymond Bennetts, who admitted having been at the Bed Lion Hotel on Tuesday for the purpose of betting, was fined £50, with costs 15/. Three months was allowed in which to pay. A similar penalty was imposed on Charles Penery. who admitted a similar oSence at the same place on February 10. Mr. H. Torrens Ward appeared for both defendants. Sergeant R. A. Len tha.ll prosecuted.
DAIRYING INDUSTRY HAMPERED BY COSTLY REGULATIONS To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 26 February 1931
DAIRYING INDUSTRY HAMPERED BY COSTLY REGULATIONS To the Editor Sir—There is no industry which de- mands more time and labor, or one more subject to disaster and loss than that of dairying, and yet there is no ! rural industry so hampered by legisla j tion and so completely out of control iof the dairyman. A man starts on this industry more often because he has the unpaid labor of his family as his I cne asset. He must face many troubles. : I have seen wiiole herds decimated by ? ? ''pleuro." In 1915 I lost through | j drought 40 proven cows, each averag i ing from 14 to I7h lb. of butter per I week. In all the years of our dairying since the separator came into vogue, two questions have been undecided:— Does the dairyman get the full measure and price he is entitled to? He sends 10 lb. of cream to the factory and is credited with 9 lb. of butter. He churns 10 lb. at home, and it yields 11 lb. He is paid 1/ per lb, and butter is sell ing at 1/6 over the counter. In Decem ber, 1929 I ...
