[?] ongreach Leader FRIDAY, MAY ll, 1923. TRUSTING THE PEOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 11 May 1923

Wangxtaäj Wmbtv FRIDAY, MAY ll, 1923. TRUSTING THE PEOPLE. When opening his political campaign in Longreach recently Mr. John Payne stated that the present-Government trusted the people, and that that was the reason why they had dispensed with the Upper House. Whatever tho argument for the re- tention or discarding of the bicameral sys- tem of Government may be, v/e do not propose to deal. When the pues tion of abolishing tho Upper House was put beforo the people, the people stated they did not wish to dispense with the Legislative Council, at least that was tho meaning of their answer when a large majority voted against its abolishment. Despito that verdict the present Govern- ment abolished tho House ,not becauso the people had willed it so, but in spite of the wishes .ot' the majority of the electors. That is one instance of how the Government trusts the people. Again, when approached to put G o'clock hotel closing to the vote, the Government refused to trust the peo- ple by gran...

Wool Still Wanted. J - : o : -? ITS DOraXM'JP MARKET POSITION. Winchcombe, Carson, Ltd., Sydney, re- . port :-"Absence of supplies ls the only ' check, on business on the wool market. If offerings were available, buyers could be readily found. The limited quantities of passed-in and local scoured lots available are being eagerly purchased privately. ? France and Japan are most active. Scoureds have been taken in large quantities by French operators. Textile manufacturing is booming in France. Export trade has been very brisk. Stocks of tops in Roubaix and Tourcoing have been steadily declining, sales having developed too rapidly for the machines to ! keep replacements up to the quantities des- ;? patched. The advance in the value of the France now quoted at G8 to the £, the high- est level since January, may act as a brake on export orders.
