BANDS COMPETITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 13 April 1923
BANDS COMPETITION. This has been a week of band music, much of it of very high standard. Apart from the competitions and street marches there has been band music in the various parks and in the streets so Brisbane gen- erally has had a musical week. Intense public interest has been shown throughout the whole competition, and on Saturday morning when the street march competi- tion took place thousands of people wedged themselves . so tightly Into thes footpaths and street that bandsmen at times had dif- ficulty in carrying out their programmes. A great contest was that between the Bal- larat and Newcastle bands in the street march. The congestion in the street was exceedingly unfortunate because at one stage the bandsmen practically had to march io single file in the effort to get through the packed mass of spectators. It was perhaps an experience for many of the visitors to march through closely pack- ed and frequently jostling crowds, but it is reasonable to assume that in such cir...
THE SEARCH FOR A TIGER. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 13 April 1923
THE SEARCH FOR A TIGER. The announcement the other day tnat an expedition had passed through Bris- bane on its way to Cooktown in North Queensland to search for a tiger that is supposed to haunt the mountains at the back of the Palmer River caused no little amusement to those who know the North. Certainly the evidence on which the ex- pedition bases its conclusions would hard- ly warrant, a conviction in a police court against the tiger. The fact, is, however, that the party has gone North, being fin- anced from Sydney, and it has the back- ing of quite a number of big scientists" who probably hope to get good specimens of the rock phytons and tree kangaroos even if they do not discover and traces of the tiger. Seeing that the expedition also in- cludes a movie-camera man the chances are that the film has something to do with the search. Whether the party ever sees its tiger is doubtful, but at all events it ought to, get some fine movie-picture views in the Palmerville ranges.

An Interesting Traveller. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 13 April 1923
An Interesting Traveller. This week there passed through Long- reach a very interesting traveller in the person of Mr. John Jones, of Toroalto Sta- tion, King's River, Northern Territory. The journey to Longreach from this far spot occupied about six months, the actual dis- tance covered in the route being over 1400 miles. Mr. Jones has two partners in the holding-Messrs J . M'Leod and John Emanuel, and these selectors are really pioneers of this particular country, a great quantity of which is practically unexplored. Mr. Jones states that there is plenty of good unexplored country but a man needs to be a good bushman in those parts. The blacks are bad, but these selectors get on well with them, for, as Mr. Jones remarked "we let them do as they like, but with strangers they are not to.be trusted. Our nearest neighbouring white man .is 300 miles away ; and we are 800 miles from Darwin and 800 from Winton in a direct line." Provisions are obtained from Derby, Western Australia by cam...

FEDERAL PASTORAL AWARD. SYDNEY, Thursday. Recently the Australian Workers' Union approached the Graziers' Association of New South Wales, requesting the confer- ence t odeal with the Federal Pastoral award matter. The secretary of the Graz & iers' (Mr. Allen) on behalf of the Federal bodies has replied that in no circum- stances would the association or its repre- sentatives be prepared to agree with the union on a variation of the Federal Pas- toral award being made in conference, as / they considered such a step would be un / surping the powers and functions for the '^ Commonwealth Arbitration Court. í ___________

AUSTRALIAN BEEF. MELBOURNE, Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 13 April 1923
AUSTRALIANJBEEF. MELBOURNE, Thursday. That there was no question of competi- tion between Australian and Argentine beef in English markets for the reason that Australian meat was, at best, only second class, and therefore could not be compared with South American product, was a state- ment made by Mr. Frank Houlder, dir- ector of Houlder Bros., London. Mr. Houlder is on his way to visit his company's meat- works at Bowen. He regarded the trouble as being due mainly to the fact that we had allowed our stock to deteriorate. Not more than 10 to 12 years ago the positions was reversed, but to-day there was no question but that Australian beef had become in- ferior. The Argentine breeders recognised the cause of the inferiority and remedied it by buying the best stock procurable. The present trouble, however, is not confined to the quality of the meat. One of the con- tributing causes of the inferiority was that insufficient care was taken in trucking stock on hoof, with the result that ...

RIVER WATER. (To the Editor "Longreach Leader"). [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 13 April 1923
RIVER WATER. (To the Editor "Longreach Leader"). Sir,~There seems to be a necessity for inf mediate action to meet the present dif- ficulty. Now I would like to point out that some 25 years ago the borçe was put down here, when there was a population of about' 1500 people and there waa water to spare. At present there is between 4000 and 5000 people and still increasing (this does not include the moving public). Water is a necessity and must be had at any cost. To put down another bore will take some time, and the water may not be usable. Then-were are we ? It must be borne in mind that our population is still increasing and will continue to do so while there is no earth- quake. Then take into consideration the requirements of water in large quantities such as baths, ice works, and other institutions (to increase as time goes on ). Consider the state of our streets for the want of the usual water cart-in this case one thing strangles another^ In all probability the loss" on one thin...
