LITTLE DRINK TROUBLE No Council By-laws DANCES IN HALLS NOT UNRULY [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 7 October 1931
LITTLE DRINK TROUBLE No Council By-laws DANCES IN HALLS NOT UNRULY Suburban councils have had so little trouble from intoxicating liquor being drunk in town and district halls that they have not even troubled to frame by-laws pro hibiting its consumption, although under neither the Licensing nor the Places of Public Entertainment Acte is it an offence. The only controlling factor is a dis allowing clause included in the hiring agreement by some of the councils. Yesterday council officers, -explaining what seemed to be an unusual position, j said there had never been sufficient unruliness arising from the drinking of liquor at dances to warrant restricting by-laws. The Prohibition League differs from t*1"" in that, but shares with them the view that Hie greater, part of any ribaldry is caused by liquor drunk In cars parked outside the pre mises. Council officers did not know of any cases parallel with that repor-' ted from Mount Gambier in "The Ad vertiser" on Monday. Alderman Le- Ld...

IN OTHER CITIES Perth Gossip From Our Special Correspondent. Perth, October 6. The State Budget evoked from tax-&lt;*> payers a sigh of relief, which may, or may not, be temporary. The Premier has taken advantage of every sixpence of deficit allowed him by the Premiers' Flan, and a few odd thousands more, and budgeted for a deficit of £1,222,600. But new taxation is slight. The re bate of one-third of the income tax, allowed when the disabilities grant was made, is reduced to 20 per cent.; the tax on cheques is doubled, and becomes twopence. Against this, the taxation on unimproved land values is remitted. The expenditure is estimated to be less than that of last year by £633,000. and the revenue is estimated at £439,000 lower. Exchange on overseas interest is reckoned at £600.000. and unemploy ment relief at £480,000. Signs of Optimism There are gigw« of optimism In places. The railways are estimated to earn £220,000 less, and to save £350,000 more by wage reduction. The...

Heavy Yarding Of Lambs At Flemington Melbourne. October 6. [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 7 October 1931
Heavy Yarding Of Lambs At Flemington Melbourne. October 6. With a heavy yarding of lambs, com-&lt;*> prising 70,000. and an adequate supply of fat sheep, comprising 36.000, at the Flem-&lt;*> ington yards today, the market was sub-&lt;*> Ject to decided fluctuations, frequently In favor of buyers, attributable In a great measure to the gradually weakening trend of export competition. New South Wales consignments provided a great bulk of the supply. Fat sheep consisted chiefly of useful trade grades, a large proportion comprising good and prune Merino wethers and mixed classes. The fat ewes market opened unsteady, and as the sales pro gressed competition was generally Irregu lar and prices easier, the .decline being most pronounced in averaee grades, es pecially Merino wethers. In the fat lamb section the offering was almost solely lair to good average export grades. In the ear:? part a firmer trend was apparent, but was not maintained, prices general...

Jervis Bay Now a Tourist Resort Canberra, October 6. Great hopes are held by the Govern-&lt;*> ment for the development of the aban-&lt;*> doned naval college at Jervis Bay as a tourist resort, and an application for a liquor licence for the former officers' quarters will probably be granted shortly. In addition to these buildings, which comprise the largest in the area, the Government has leased for the Christ mas season practically the whole of the staff cottages at the base, and It hopes soon to dispose of other larger baud ings suitable for use as guest houses. Jervls Bay offers many attractions, infilling &lt;ightng boating, swimming, tennis and golf.
TOO MANY REGULATIONS [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 7 October 1931
TOO MANY REGULATIONS The need for traffic control in a modern city full of motor cars is un-&lt;*> questionable; but it is equally clear that, in the whole sphere of municipal government, nothing is more difficult t.hiifri to hit upon a plan of regulation which shall represent the happy medium between traffic anarchy and traffic paralysis. The Adelaide City Council time wrestled with tihtg problem, with the 4*?i !■"'?«■ of nwwiMiHAiit en deavor, over a series of years, but has, unfortunately, been Influenced by the curious delusion—or so it mig-vi^ appear from the result of all these labors— that Adelaide is a vast metropolis .of narrow and tortuous streets, in which traffic ought not only to be drastically regulated, but actively discouraged, by a mn*tfplicity of well-intentioned but vexatious and complicated by-laws. The fact Is, of course, that the city upon which this ever-growing incubus of traffic regulation has been imposed, is neither so overgrown, nor yet so dest...
TO SEE A TREASURE CHEST Crowds at Antiques Exhibition [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 7 October 1931
TO SEE A TREASURE CHEST Crowds at Antiques Exhibition The best test of any venture is suc-&lt;*> cess. The fact that the Antiques ex-&lt;*> hibition on North-terrace is still draw-&lt;*> ing well over a thousand patrons a day, although it is within three days of closing, carries its own wwnmmdiMfo". One of the wt?iM*? which is attract ing much attention is the early 16th century treasure chest, a contraption of wrought iron and mysterious lock ing TWf^iiftTitgm which savocb of pirates, adventure, and romanticism. A whole story might be written round that quaint Iron box, which somehow suggests the exploits of Cap tain Kldd. It is on the first floor, in the north-eastern corner of the room. Piracy is a thing of the past, if one excepts those occasional epi sodes which occur off the coast of China, and which are merely a mild form of what was once a very for midable danger on the high. seas. Yet the old chest suggests pirates, for it was the sort of th...
The Advertiser ADELAIDE: WEDNESDAY, OCTOBEB 1, 1931 BRITAIN'S ORDEAL [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 7 October 1931
The Advertiser ADELAIDE: WEDNESDAY, OCTOBEB 1, 1931 BRITAIN'S ORDEAL British Ministers have conquered the difficulty they had in making their minds, and. as will be seen by our cable messages, the Parliamentary ses- sion will end today, and with It Par liament Itself. The emergency legis lation is complete, bat. as Earl Peel reminded the Boose of Lords, the Bod get has stffl to be balanced, and the need of a National Government is as Imperative as ever. This want can only be supplied when the Government has obtained from the country a House of Commons more exactly to its mind than the present one. It is lament able to think that a national crisis more fraught with peril than any that has occurred since 1914. snonld find political parties at sixes and sevens as they now are. and the safety of the country dependent, to an extent rarely experienced, on the commonsense of the constituencies. It is seldom that democracy has been subjected to such a test as will now be imposed upon it. or...
MR. BUTLER ASSAILS PREMIERS "Sole Object To Evade Responsibilities" DEFENCE OF BANKS [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 7 October 1931
MR. BUTLER ASSAILS PREMIERS "Sole Object To Evade Responsibilities" DEFENCE OF BANKS Speaking on the Financial Emergency Act Extension Bill in the Assembly yesterday, the leader of the Opposition (Mr. Butler) said the last Premiers' Conference had reflected little credit upon those who took part In it. It was apparent, he said, that the Premiers had met with the sole object of ascertaining whether they could evade their responsibilities under the Plan, in so far as the limita tion cf deficits was concerned, "by bring ing pressure to bear on the banks tc lend them more money. Fortunately for Australia, the banks had refused to yield to that pressure. He was con vinced that the Budget statements of many of the Governments ~ would eventually reveal that the deficits had been limited to the amount agreed upon at the Premiers' Conference Vy subter fuge rather than.by honest methods and correct accountancy. It was fla grant dishonesty for the Governments to compel bondholders to take a lo...

GREAT FLIGHT ACROSS PACIFIC Japan To U.S. 4,600 MILES HOP Americans Win £5,000 VANCOUVER, October 5.

POINTS FROM LETTERS Breadcarters' Conditions [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 7 October 1931
POINTS FROM LETTERS Breadcarters' Conditions From Harry Adams, James-street:—&lt;*> The Federal Council of the Bread-&lt;*> carters' Union cannot possibly believe that it can induce the Government to stop the sale of bread in shops. The remedy to stop most of the shop trade is to lower the costs of production and delivery, so that the price may be lowered a penny per loaf to the con sumer. People would rather nave a baker can. than go to the shops for bread. Any sensible youth after a few weeks can become an experienced breadcarter. The council should know that the time for dictating to the em ployer as to whom he shall employ and from whom he shall get his em ployes has passed. As one who was breadcarUog for some years, I advise breadcarters to consider the fact that there are many experienced men out of work who could do the work as well as they at less wages. "Directorate of Bauways" From C. Barton. Port Pirle:—The Railways Bnqulry Committee advises that the...
