AFTER 17 YEARS. Relay Tram Tracks. -? COST ESTIMATED AT £22,390. Provided the new rails arrive in time, it is intended to commence the relaying of the Queen Street tramway tracks in 10 days' time. The estimated cost is £22,390. The order for the rails, which are to be manufactured at Port Kembla, was placed yesterday. The rails are to be of the railway type, and will have no groove similar to the existing rails, which have now been down for 17 years. The general manager of the tram- ways department (Mr. G. R. Steer) ex- plained yesterday that it was intended to make an innovation in the method of rail-laying. Instead of surrounding the steel with mass concrete it would be embedded upon a bitumen filler one inch in thickness. Almost all the tramways in Great Britain were using this method, which provided a more even bed for the rails, and a quieter running track, which was Important, especially in the heart of the city." Another advantage was that when the time came for relaying the ...
DIFFICULT TO COMBAT. Dumping Clothing. THE CONSTITUTION A BAR. The Federal Constitution, under which interference with inter-State trade is prohibited, is held to be an effective bar to the prevention of dumping in the clothing trade. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 31 August 1933
DIFFICULT TO COMBAT. Dumping Clothing. -_* THE CONSTITUTION . A BAR. The Federal Constitution, under which interference with inter-State trade is prohibited, is held to he an effective bar to the prevention of dumping in the clothing trade. Although Queensland legislation pro- hibits persons engaged in the cloth- ing trade taking work home to pre- pare and finish, the Minister for Labour and Industry (Mr. M. P. Hynes) admits that he has little or no power to prohibit the importation into Queensland of cheap labour goods manufactured in Victoria, Mr, Hynes made these remarks yes- terday when referring to the state- ment published in the ."Courier-Mail" that clothing factories in Queensland wero being ruined because of the dumping here of clothing manufac- tured in Victoria, under sweating conditions, and mainly by foreigners. The Minister said that because a Federal and a State award operated in Queensland an anomalous position existed, as 75 per cent, of those engaged in the clothin...
SPECIAL FORCE FOR AUSTRIA. Permission Likely. REQUEST TO TREATY POWERS. It is expected that the Versailles Treaty Powers will grant Austria permission to recruit a special auxiliary force of 8000 men for short term service.

SPECIAL FORCE FOR AUSTRIA. Permission Likely. ? REQUEST TO TREATY POWERS. It is expected that the Versailles Treaty Powers will grant Austria permission to recruit a special auxiliary force of 8000 men for short term service. Austria's re- quest has a arisen out of the tension on the Austro-German frontier. LONDON, August 29. An agreement will probably be con- cluded within a few days embodying the conditions on which the British, French and Italian Governments will consent to the request that was re- cently made by the Austrian Govern- ment for permission to raise, for one year, a special auxiliary force of 8000 men. The Governments of the "Little Entente" Powers, it is understood, have been consulted, and have given their consent. The Austrian request arises out of the atmosphere of tension existing on the Austro-German frontier. By the terms of the treaty of Saint Germain the Austrian army is allowed 30,000 men, but it has never been up to full strength. The pro- posed derogation...
"ABSURD POSITION." Amend Constitution. REFERENDUM ON UPPER HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 31 August 1933
"ABSURD POSITION." Amend Constitution. REFERENDUM ON UPPER HOUSE. "If a government can so alter the Constitution as to provide that there must be a referendum before a second chamber can be established, then a government can tie up succeeding governments in such a way that taxa- tion cannot be levied or money bor- rowed without the people first being consulted." This observation was made hy the Leader of the Opposition (Mr. A. E. Moore) yesterday when discussing the proposal of the Government to amend the Constitution to make it man- datory to refer to the people, by referendum, the question of the establishment of an Upper House. Mr.'Moore said that he failed to see how any government could bind succeeding governments in a matter of this description. If it were com- petent for the present Government to alter the Constitution as stated, then there was nothing to prevent a succeeding government doing like- wise. The thing would lead to the creation of an absurd position, and was neve...

Edwards, city valuer, attached to the Fed- eral Tax Department, was reported to l.avc said: "I have the expert opinion of the Portmaster (Captain T. H. Roberts) that the Brisbane pilots would be pre- pared to take steamers of at least 450ft. long to wharves extending over 1200ft. at this place." The words "at least" should have read "up to."

COUNCIL WORKS. Year's Allocations. SANDGATE-WYNNUM SEA WALLS. Schemes to construct further sea ?walls at Sandgate and Wynnum are among the proposals approved by the civic works executive (Alderman E. Lanham) as part of intermittent re- lief expenditure during the year. The allocations for the various wards, both from the city fund and in regard to intermittent relief proposals, were out- lined yesterday. Alderman Lanham said that, follow- ing the announcement by the Gov- ernment that it could not make avail- able to the council more than £120,000 during the year by way of loan and subsidy for carrying out the relief scheme in the metropolitan area, he had arranged "with the chief engineer (Mr. E. F. Gilchrist) the year's allocations. Approximately £100,000 had been made available from the city fund for works expenditure, but there were certain items, such as £33,000 for administrative expenses, £23,000 for street cleansing, and £34,000 for street lighting, which depleted the grant t...

The directors and management con- ferred on the programme to be fol- lowed for further testing of the lode at a greater depth.

FEES TOO HIGH. Motion for Repeal. PORTION OF TRANSPORT REGULATIONS. The Leader of the Opposition (Mr, A. E.

FEES TOO HIGH. Motion for Repeal. ? PORTION OF TRANSPORT REGULATIONS. The Leader of the Opposition (Mr, A. E. Moore) gave notice in Parliament yesterday that he would move to-day that portions of the regulations under tho State Transport Act of 1932, which were laid before the Legislative Assembly by the Minister for Transport (Mr. J. Dash) on August 16, be dis- allowed. The most important of the regula- tions opposed under Mr. Moore's motion is that which fixes a schedule of fees for heavy vehicles at lad. a ton a mile, calculated on the capacity of the vehicle, for goods transport, and a half-penny a passenger a mile, cal- culated on passenger capacity, for pas- senger transport services. The Opposition's contention is that these charges are prohibitive and im- pose1 an unwarranted burden on coun- try residents. Another regulation opposed is that .which makes it an offence for the driver of a, motor vehicle to overtake or pass another vehicle proceeding in the same direction unles...

Greatly encouraged over the ap- parent successful negotiation of tho coal code, the National Recovery Ad- ministration to-day continued its whirlwind campaign to formulate and implement as nxny codes as possible before Labour Day (September 4). With the exception of a few "die hard" operators, the vast soft coal in- dustry, which for years has suffered from turmoil and bloodshed, is now under the Blue Eagle clause, allowing 340,000 hitherto non-union miners to organise for collective bargaining. The operators have also agreed to increase wages and'shorten hours in conformity with the industrial recovery pro- gramme. MB. FORD'S POSITION. In a Press interview the National Recovery Administrator (Senator Johnson) to-day virtually threatened that the Government would boycott Mr. Henry Ford's motor cars unless he signed the automobile code.
