It stopped at ali stations, and the rival train-crew ou the other side of the Chamber, led by ex-Railway Minister Morgan and Guard Kenny, tried to obstruct the track every few yards, generally doing their utmost to delay the Premier's ex. press. The Premier, in a few well-chosen words, which seemed to throw grave doubts on Mr. Morgan's efficiency as an accountant, said that ...

ECONOMIC PROBLEMS AT THE CONFERENCE. The Drift Towards Controlled Production* (By Professor Douglas Copland.) LONDON, July 1?. At first, one half of the work of tlie Conference was devoted to economic discussions, When the stab- ilisation storm burst, monetary prob- lems receded from the ptctuie. Un- fortunately the most useful economic discussions were also virtually aban- doned. For the view taken on tariffs, restrictions, and subsidies by Euro- pean countries, notably Prance and Italy, was that there could be no satisfactory discussions on these matters while currencies were un- stable. Countries must be free to pro- tect their trade balances by tariffs and other weapons. Further, these weapons were necessary for defending national trade against the invasion of goods from countries with depreciating cur- rencies. So all prospects of freeing international trade were destroyed, and the Conference was finally left with the problems that arise under the heading of "Co-ordination of P...

RIVER SIDE SCHEME. IMPROVING HAMILTON ROAD. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 31 August 1933
RIVER SIDE SCHEME. IMPROVING HAMILTON ROAD. One important work which the city works executive (Alderman E. Lanham) considers might be given at- tention shortly is the provision of a 3tons wall along the Hamilton Road, from a point near the old Hamilton Council Chambers to the Cold Stores. Financial provision for building such a wall, he explained, yesterday, had not been made on the allocation of works, but he was going into the question with the city engineer (Mr. E. F. Gilchrist), and felt sure that it would have the approval of all aldermen, as it would be of utility as well as providing a fine rlver-s'.de drive. If the council approved of the scheme he intended to place It oe fore the Department of Labour and Industry so that financial assistance might be given for it, apart from the present subsidy loan already provid- ed for relief works. If that were agreed to work could be found on a very useful project for up to 200 men at a time.
