CORRESPONDENCE. [We do not necessarily identify ourselves with the opinions expressed by our correspondents.] "THE SECRET OF HOLLY-BOUGH." TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Cressy and Lismore Pioneer and Western Plains Representative — 17 November 1915

CORRESPONDENCE. [Wa do not necessarily identify our selves with the opinions expressed by our correspondents.] "THE SECRET OF HOLLY* BOUGH." TO THE BOITOB. Sir,—After reading the balance aheet submitted by Mr Watts in connection with "The Secret of Hollybough," I was somewhat amused at the lack of businea ability displayed in presenting: the statement. In the first plac* it is evident that the public wera expected to take it for granted that the items shown in the bal ance sheet were accurate and a complete statement of facts. Such an assumption would be an insult to the intelligence of the public, who are capable of judg ing for themselves. The first I item discloses an apparent at tempt to juggle with figures, for it is known that a capable busi ness man entered the variouB items auctioned, and he agree* with others that £419s 6d was the correct amount. So much for item No. 1, which has no right in the balance sheet,for the money should have been handed over to the Red Cross, for ...

CORRESPONDENCE. [We do not necessarily identify our selves with the opinions expressed by our correspondents.] HIGH COST OF LIVING. TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—I have been expecting to hear the glad. news that there would be a reduction in the price of bread. When the price was fixed by the bakers two reasons were given for the increase— the high price of horse feed and flour. The difference in the price of horse feed to-dav and three months ago is fully 100 per cent,, cheaper, and flour within the last week has dropped £2 per ton, and likely to keep falling as the new wheat comes, but the price of bread has not dropped. Why ? We hear a.lot of talk about pa triotism, and there are a lot of appeals made on the community, but can anyone tell me if the working class in thir< town has had their wages raised to meet the demands that have been made < on them'by the high cost of liv ing that has been forced on us. he meat combine have had a good innings, but as a new but cher...
