Aitken) Charlotte Hinder proceeded against Alfred M'Cracken for having travelled stock along a route which traversed the complainant's holding (Rim- banda) without first having given' notice of intention so to do. Mr. R. L. Peterson who appeared for the complainant,-«tated there was nothing exceptional about the mat- ter and the complainant did not press for a heavy penalty.

The defendant stated that he had posted a notice to the complainant, but he (the de- fendant) had since been informed that the notice had not been received. Mr. Peter- son : We certainly didn't get notice. The P. M. : In cases where notice has been sent we must have evidence, such as a copy.

State Elections. THE MITCHELL SEAT. UNITED PARTY LEADER'S VISIT. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 27 April 1923

State Elections. [ THE MITCHELL" SEAT. UNITED PARTY LEADER'S VISIT. The Lougreach Shire Council Hall was well filled last night when Mr. Leon m! Lyons, the United Party's candidate for the Mitchell addressed the electors of Longreach, and had the assistance of the leader of his party, Mr. C. Taylor. Mr. T. F. Barker (chairman of the Shire Council) occupied the chair, and briefly introduced the speakers, and asked for a fair hearing for both gentlemen. Despite the interjec- tions by one or two disgruntled back-seaters both speakers were given good hearings, their speeches being p\inctuated by repeat- ed cheers and applause, the enthusiasm of the audience being most remarkable. Mr. Lyons delivered an interesting ad- dress, and created quite an impression upon those electors who had not pre%'iously heard him speak. The subject matter of his ad- dress was similar to that delivered at Ilfra- combe, a report of which appears on page two of this issue. Mr. Taylor, who was well received, sa...

WüxtQvtaáf Wmbtv _FRIDAY, APRIL 27, 1023._ The electors of Mitchell will bo called upon on the 12th May next to give their decision as to what party shall control the destinies of Queensland for the next three years. So far as the Mitchell is concerned there are two parties represented arid ask- ing for support. The banner of the United Party is being carried by Mr. Leon Lyons who is well-known in the district. Mr. Ly- ons did his bit faithfully and well in the great war and his intimate knowledge of the west and its peculiar conditions and requirements render him eminently suitable to represent the Mitchell. Mr. John Payne, who has held the seat for so many years, has again been chosen to represent the Labour Party. Both men are well and favourably known, but In this issue the ap- peal is not on personal grounds. The issues at staka in this election are vital and dis- tinct. The question for decision is "Which party will best serve the interests of this great district and the State...

I had an ap- pointment to meet her in her room after the play, and slipped round behind the scenes before she left the stage. Her exit was astonishing and touching. The whole company of the Coliseum and its variety show-acrobats, jugglers, "funny" men dancing girls, "star Turns"-had lined up in a double row to await this Queen of Tragedy with homage. As she came oft! the stage. George Robey, with his red nose and ridiculous little hat, gravely offered his arm, with the air of Walter Raleigh in the presence of Queen Elizabeth.
