Steadfast Confidence [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 11 May 1923
Steadfast Confidence Could stronger proof of the merit of any product be desired than the state- ments of grateful endorsers who .say their confidence has been undimin- ished by lapse of time? These are the kind of statements that are appearing in your local papers for Doan's Back- ache Kidney Pills. They are twice told and confirmed with new enthusi- asm. -Can any reader doubt the fol- lowing: Mrs. A. B. Morgan, Eagle Street, Longreach, says: "I have been in grand health ever since I used Doan's Backache Kidney Pills ; they fixed me up completely. Before I took this remedy I suffered a lot with disor- dered kidneys, and the pains in my back were dreadful, and never seemecf to leave me day or night. To stoop meant torture. I always felt tired, and had no energy, and it was as much as I could do to attend to my work. To make matters worse, I got very little rest at night, and altogether felt far ^~ from well.' Seeing Doan's Backache Kidney Pills advertised as a cure for backache and ...
LABOUR'S LITERATURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 11 May 1923
LABOUR'S LITERATURE. Labour has never fought an election in Queensland in which the cartoon and the phamplet played such a big part. The pamphlet, of course, everyone knows, but the cartoon, as developed in this election, is an entirely new feature, and a big one too Some weeks ago a well-known cartoonist was brought from Sydney to get the local atmosphere, and his work is now going broadcast, in pamphlets. In the city, how- ever, lt stands out on the hoardings in great posters a dozen feet high, in places that must catch the eye as the trams race past. The moving pictures also .have been com- mandeered, but both sides have developed that idea. The Labour pictures, however, are certainly the more effective; Yes, La- bour is fighting this election with brains and money. These are the two big fea- tures of the city organisation. It never had so much money of its own to spend, and never such confidence. But, perhaps, money breeds confidence in a party just as it does with an individual...

To the Gregory Electors. DEAR SIR OR MADAM,— [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 11 May 1923
I To the Gregory Electors. H; DEAR SIR OR MADAM, II wish to place before you my reason for coming forward as a candidate for the Gregory, and also to give a general outline of the Policy that I will advocate and support, should I be returned as your representative. In the first place, I consider that the interests of Queensland are being sacrifled for party and sectional advantages, and that the present unsatisfactory industrial, and economic conditions are the result of the ill-advised legislation and administration of the present Government and its past Leaders, who have increased taxation, in- creased the public debit, and increased unemployment. If the present administra- tion is continued, taxation must be further increased, and it is even now being grad- ually loaded over on to the shoulders of the employees, both directly and indirectly hy such legislation as the "Unemployment Insurance Act" and "Government Gamb- ling .Sweeps." In regard to the future Policy of Queensland, I ...
