KEEP TO THE LEFT. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 20 April 1923

KEEP TO THE LEFT. Hitherto the rule of the road in Brisbane has been to keep to the left and the rule of the footpath to keep to the right. The Police Commissioner's Conference recently held in Melbourne decreed uniformity throughout the Commonwealth and short- ly the keep to the left rule of the footpath is to be enforced in Brisbane, with the as- sistance of the ubiquitous policeman and painted signs on the pavements, liberally interspersed with broad arrows. The in- creasing pedestrain trame is apparent to all who have resided in the City for the past 12 years and also the urgent necessity for more conti-ol over it. Though at pres- ent pedestrains are supposed to keep to the right, as the majority do still there are always in the moving crowd a few con- trary individuals who, out of either pure cussedness or ignorance keep to the left and upset the ordered march of the many. When the new regulations comes into force, the police, as traffic controllers, will have a busy time to co...

THE SWING OF THE PENDULUM. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 20 April 1923

THE SWING OF TH 13 PENDULUM. Public opinion is proverbially fickle and more especially ls this true In regard to politics. A comparatively few weeks ago, and even right up to the Federal elections it "seemed certain that the State Labour Government would go out of office on an appeal to the electors. Then something happened, the pendulum began to swing the other way, and when Mr. Theodore . made the dramatic announcement ot an election within 8 weeks, Labour stocks be- gan to rise. For a week Labour's oppon- ents were in the doldrums, and almost ex- treme pessimism was rife in Nationalist circles. But there has been still another change since then and the political atmos- phere is now much brighter and more healthy from the Anti-Socialist standpoint. News is filtering In from the country indi- cating that notwithstanding the Premier's big effort to cajole the farmers and the countryman generally, he has not suc- ceeded and will receive the shock of his political existence when the c...

THE SUGAR PROBLEM. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 20 April 1923

THE SUGAR PROBLEM. The/Prime Minister, Mr. Bruce, is ex- pected to reach Brisbane next month and much energy will be displayed in placing before him the facts concerning the sugar industry. Since he has renewed the grant to the cattle industry for another year, in spite of the hostility of the Melbourne Press, there is a distinct feeling of optim- ism that he will consent to a higher duty for the sugar industry. There is a feeling here in political circles, however, that our own case is being weakened by those who are agitating in favour of a renewal of the agreement when there is not the faintest chance of getting such a thing. The Fed- eral Government has made that plain enough ; neither could the Government get a renewal passed by Parliament it it wished ever so much. It will be a pity if, when Mr. Bruce comes here, there should be a weakening of our case in a srtuggle for the unattainable.

Correspondence. -: o : ---- THE PASSING OP THE LESSEE. (To the Editor "Longreach Leader"). Dear Sir.-I have appended hereto a list , of leases of first class country in this dis ' g trict shortly falling due and I have set these out in columns with the respective rentals, showing the date of the expiry of the lease. .1 have thought it would be interesting reading to make a comparison in the rent- als paid by the present lessees and pro- spective as grazing farms. The columns show this and also what was paid prior to the passing of what is known as the "Re ; pudiation Act." !These figures speak for themselves and ;the comparison reveals an ennormity of ; increased revenue from land as grazing ? farms. These appear to be :-Rental prior to the Repudiation Act, "£9,956/3/11 ; rent- al now paid by Lessees, £22,003/13/11 ; rental as Prospective Grazing Farms, -£53,989/3/0.
