DANGEROUS BRIDGE Gaza's Drawback [Newspaper Article] — News — 1 August 1923
DANGEROUS BRIDGE Gaza's Drawback For a long while it has been recog nised in Payneham- and Gaza that the1 Fclixstowe Bridge which spans the Tor rens, connecting those districts, ha~s seriously hampered i-he development ot Gaza. The bridge itself is solidly enough constructed, but it is so narrow that twc vehicles can scarcely pass, and the sides are so low that any restive horse might easily plunge over. It is on this account that the bridge is avoided wvhenevcr :possible, and the district suffers in consequence, as the only approach to Gaza. by way of Paynehamn lies over it. The bridge is the common boundary betweein the Payneham and Yata~la South districts, and owing to a miusun derstanding between the two councils the bridge hais not received proper at tiflti( n. It is hoped, however, tha~t the much needed handrails will soon be forthcom ing.
LURE OF GOLD Unprofitable Venture £300,000 SUNK IN MISIMA MELBOURNE, Today. [Newspaper Article] — News — 1 August 1923
LURE OF lOLll Unprofitable Venture £300,000 SUNK IN MISIMA MELBOURNE, Today. The last phase of an unprofitable ven ture began yesterday when Mr. H. Thomas, general manager of Millbr and Co., Melbourne, set out on his journey to the Pacific island of Misitna, to supe rintend the dinantling of the Bloc,-: 10 Misima Gold Mining Company., in which £300,000 of Australian money has been sunk during the past three years. Gold, the lure of natives in all ages, is generally surrounded by a halo of romance which few can resist, and the history of the Misima enterpri is no less interesting because its loca tion is on a little island lying 150 miles due east frcen Samarai. Papua. The wonder is that, though it has been said that, for every ounce of ga14 won, the cost of the operation is more than the value of the metal, no les a company than the Broken Hill Pty. Block 10 Company saw fit to father and foster this underta~king. Eventually. when £300,000 had been spent, and all available capital wa...

Mr. McFarlane's Views REPLY FROM MURRAY- BRIDGE MURRAY BRIDGE, Today. Mr. Will Sladden, interviewed regarding Mr. McFarlane's statement in Melbourne, said that the Murray Bridge rowiug men were grateful to Mr. McFarlane for his explanation that he was not trying to dis credit the Murray Bridge crew, and he pointed out that, this eplanation was amply confirmed in Mr. McFarlane's latest utter ances, in which, while he admitted that Murray Bridge were left at the post at Perth, he volunteered the in'ormation that this was due to Murray Bridge's own fault. "Mr. MeFarlane," continued Mr. Sladden, ";s entitled to his own opinion, but, he knows there is an?oher side to this: but the matter is ancient history, and has no bearing on the point raised by Mr. MeFar line, namely, that the Murray Bridge row ers had done nothing over Olympic dis tance. "Mr. MeFarlane's fairness is a-ain illus trated in his remark that the Sterards' Challenge Cup is generally composed of second strinrs to the Grand...
