PRESS COMMENTS London, January 21 [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 24 January 1929
PRESS COMMENTS ' London, January 21 The City Editor ^f the 'Daily TeW graph' says that the response to the - Commonwealth 5} jter cent, loan (££,- 000,000 issue at £98) was poor, and' though no worfee was feared, was not flattering to the credit of the Domin ion,. The time was surely arrived Jhc said, when Australia's financial advis ers should review the position. The Un lerwriters were left with 87 per cent, of thr July stock, and 84 per ' cent, of the March stock. The reluctance of tite city to take np the stock at the time of issue needed investigation. Either the price was too high, or else there was an impression, which certain- ' !y prevailed, .that Australia borrowed too -heavily and too regularly. lit might be ? pointed out that as -control trajt'in the' hands' of a central authority, and' sinking fond arrangements existed, th-y contention. /inigW ; be unfounded, but ifiere was' an element of doubt; to ?winch attention should be paid.

THE GREAT PYRAMID RIDDLE OF ITS ERECTION M. Jean Capart, the eminent Egyp tologist, who is curator of the Museum of Ancient Art at the Palais du Cin quantentiare at Brussels, has a curious and fertile imagination (writes the Brussels correspondent of the 'Dafly Telegraph.') . Visitors to the museum are some what puzzled, onr passing through the Egyptian section, w&en they perceive a sort of cage of iron wire In the eh.ape . of a pyramid, and see habitues of the museum approach it and east little cubes of wood into the interior thro ugh the meshes. ' «-- Herodotus relates that ^'g Cheops, for the construction of his pyramid on the Gizeh plateau, had to make 100,000 men labour for twenty years.. The Great Pyramid is 230 metres j (about 760 ft.) in length over the sides ( and 146 metres -480ft^ in height.

A MASTER FORGER MENACE TO SOCIETY Described as one of the most expert forgers who had been before the court for many years, William Rey nolds, aged 56, mas charged at the Old Bailey last month with forging £1 Treasury notes. Some of the forged notes were hand ed- to Mr. Justice Swift, who examin ed them closely.

A 'warrant was issued for his arrest in 1928, but he was not captur ed until the present case. Woman's loyalty. . For some time past a number of ex. traordinarily clever forged £5 notes had been pat into circulation. They were produced by hand, and even the watermark on the paper almost baf fled detection.

ENGLAND'S LAST INVASION. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 25 January 1929
ENGLAND'S LAST INVASION. Although we have lately passed through the greatest war in history, we must go farther back to find the last time that England was actually invaded by a foreign enemy — that is to say, the last time a foreign in vader actually stepped on British The man who led the invasion was an American adventurer, named Col onel Tate. His force of fifteen hun dred men— most of them French ex convicts and rascals— landed in Car digan Bay, without opposition, on one spring day in 1797. They were merely a 'side-show' in France's unsuccessful attempt to land troops in Ireland, and they did no damage. After twenty-four hours, British troops were hurried up to en gage them, and Colonel Tate offered to surrender on terms. His offer was not accepted. He then surrendered unconditionally. No foe has succeeded in landing on Brit ish soil since. And let us hope no foe ever will I
