RISE IN WOOL VALUES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER-MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 31 August 1933
RISE IN WOOL VALUES. TO THE EDITOR OP THE COURIER-MAIL. Sir,-In your issue of the 29thi instant, and on your bill-boards cover- ing the same, prominence is given to a 30 per cent, increase in wool values, as evidenced, by the opening Sydney sales on the 28th. There is no doubt that this is true, but it is somewhat misleading to Queenslanders. Actually the rise of* 30 per cent, is reckoned on -values which ruled in Sydney at their last sale in eafrly June. Subse- quent to that, however, sales were held in this centre which were at least 10 per, cent, higher than Sydney. Therefore, the increase on the highest point known to Queenslanders is 15 per cent, to 20 per cent. It would have stated the case more accurately for this State had your headlines and bill-boards shown IS per cent, to 20 per cent., and mention made in the smaller type that actu . ally the sales were 30 per cent higher than the last Sydney sale, which was, however, lower by 10 per cent, than the Brisbane sales in late ...
MOST FOR 19 YEARS. Explosives Imported. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 31 August 1933
MOST FOR 19 YEARS. Explosives Imported. The largest importation of explosives to Queensland for the past '19 years was made during the year ended June 30 last. This fact is set out in the annual report of the Government Analyst (Mr. J. B. Henderson), which was tabled in Parliament yesterday. Mr. Henderson, who supervises the handling of explosives on behalf of the Government, informed the House that the explosives imported during the year were as follows:-Gelignite, 20,296 cases;,blasting gelatine, 116 cases; gelatine dynamite, 20 cases; dynamite, 43 cases; samsonlte, 2541 cases; ligdyn, 2061 cases; and quarry monobel, 867 cases-in all, 25,944 cases.- The report _ explains that the rise in quantity has mostly been caused, by the increase in mining, and partly by the relief work for road making. "Owing to the com-1 paratively small reserve stocks carried, I explosives are not magazined for near- ly so long as they were before the war," it proceeds. "For this reason, and also because ...
PRIMARY PRODUCERS' PROBLEMS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER-MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 31 August 1933
PRIMARY PRODUCERS» PROBLEMS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER-MAIL. Sir,-It is interesting to note the typical city view with regard to the measures that have been adopted to assist the general position resulting from the depression. Many city people believe that the exporting industries have had the big end of the stick for a long time by reason of the "25 per cent, exchange premium," and that the importing industries have been affected in inverse ratio. They seem to forget that the exporting industries .must be given first consideration be fore permanent recovery can come about, because if they are not prosper- ous ¿he importing industries cannot hope to be. The city can be likened to the superstructure of a building and the country to the foundations. If the foundations are unsound, then the superstructure must be also. In other words, make the country prosperous and prosperity in the city will follow. In this lies the solution to all our Australian problems, and can be nar- rowed do...

THE LOWEST TENDER. But Lost Contract. QUEENSLAND BID WITH VEAL. Although a Queensland firm submitted the Ion est tender for the supply of veal for the American army in tlie Philippine Islands this year, it was not given the contract. The quality of the article was not in question. This disclosure was made yesterday by the manager of Redbank Meat- works, Pty., Ltd. (Mr. R. H. Ken- dall). 'His firm's Manila representa- tive, he said, had advised that its quotation was the lowest tendered. The contract, however, had to be approved in Washington, from which advice had been received later that the Queensland tender had been rejected and an American one accepted. Tlie quantity of veal required for the year was about 25,0001b. Mr. Kendall added that the con- tract for beef, other than veal, for the American army* in tlie Philippine Islands went to a Queensland firm this year, and last year an Australian firm had the contract for veal. This was clear evidence of the ability of Queens- land ...
