Mr. Leon Lyons. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 11 May 1923

Mr. Leon Lyons. It is interesting to know that the can- didate selected by the Longreach branch of the Queensland United Party has been a Western man all his life and as such is well acquainted with the needs of the Mit- chell electors. Mr. Lyons, who was born in Queensland, came out West as a jackeroo twenty five years ago, and at the commencement of war in 1914 was managing a property near Barcaldine. He was prominent in sport and was re-     cognised as one of our best horsemen leav- ing Australia in 1914 with the A.I.F. He     saw service in Gallipoli and France, and   unluckily lost a leg in action. On returning to Australia he came West     at once and bought a property and has lived out West ever since, so his actions show his choice of residence is in the district he hopes to represent in Parliament. Mr. Lyons has always been known as a progressive, broad-minded man who can be relied u...

Minnie Bowns had 170 points and several stations in that district had from 50 to 100 points. All the back country rivers are running strong, especially in Bulloo. The sensational arrest of William Ed- wards, at Stonhenge, recently, has caused much surprise here. It will be remem- bered that Edwards was charged with horse stealing about two years ago at Roma and it was alleged that he had stolen quite a number of horses at Cunnamulla and here.

Winton Notes. (From Our Own Correspondent). [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 18 May 1923

.Winton Notes. (From Our Own Correspondent). Tlic Weather.-The weather is again very fine and the nights are becoming cold. From present indications the rain has gone and the outlook in this district is far from bright and many of the selectors are going to have a hard time to save their stock. What dith high taxation and the prospect of it still going higher, the selector's lot is not altogether a happy one. Stock.-The stock movements are not very brisk at present. Sheep are coming along to the depot for shearing, but in- dependent of that the numbers travelling South are not very great. A few rams arrived some little time ago, and will prob- ably go to their destinations by motor lorry. The Elections.-The elections here passed off quietly. The Labour man was returned by a two to one majority, and, judging by reports coming to hand, Labour seems to have won all along the line. Events will now be watched with keen interest to see how far they are capable of going. Any- way with the ...

772e Symptoms-The Cause j The Remedy j v One of the most distressing troubles a person can endure is biliousness. It is depressing to the spirits and demora- lising to tho entire system. Tho person so afflicted is scarcely able to work or take an interest in anything. The sowors of his body are clogged and need flushing out. The bile is turned from its proper channel and enters the blood and produces that peculiar eas* of complexion. Ho is very restless, uneasy or sleepless at night, or perhaps hia slumber is lethargic and dull. He I has dull pains, uneasiness under the j right side and shoulder-blades, a bitter j taste in the mouth, sudden dizziness on < rising, furred tongue, bowels loose one ! day and constipateù9ihe next. Ail or I any of these conditions may accom- j pany the bilious condition, and while j so afflicted the patient 's life is scarcely j worth living.

BRISBANE NOTES. (From Our Own Correspondent). THE PREMIER'S CONFERENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 18 May 1923

BRISBANE NOTES. (Prom Our Own Correspondent). THE PREMIER'S CONFERENCE. The publication of the agenda paper ot the Premier's Conference to be held in Mel- bourne is causing somß interest, seeing that so much of the discussion is vitally connected with Queensland. On the big financial question there is a .distinct differ- ence of opinion, some believeing that it would be a benefit to the people if the Fed ral Government left the field of income tax exclusively for the State whilst others point out that it is very doubtful if any real sav- ing would be effected, seeing that the State would have to enlarge its staff, and it is equally doubtful if under the State there would be any reduction in taxation, the one impost, being as large, if not larger, than the existing two-should the Labour Gov- ernment be returned to power on Satur- day. Those represent the two views that are being expressed. The immigration scheme has been accorded more general support, whilst the suggestion that the g...
