Limiting Wheat Pool Liability [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 8 October 1931
Limiting Wheat Pool Liability "Periods of deflation carry with them a certain amount of repudiation and insolvency, and we are forced to do many things which we would not do at any other tune," said Mr. Young (Lib.), in continuing the debate on the Wheat Harvest Scheme (Claims) BUI in the Legislative Council yester day. He said he agreed, in a general way, with the sentiments expressed by Sir David Gordon, but did not admit that they applied to this particular case. Not long ago, he said, members were opposed to the reduction of Govern ment interest, and to the reduction of certain fixed caiaripa, but since then they had been forced to agree with those measures. The pools were the result of the war. They were not formed because the Government wanted to take over the wheat, and the business was done In a hurry. Blunders were to be ex pected. The Bill would bring about finality, and the farmers wanted fin ality, limiting liability to the funds In the pool. The alternative was to invol...
State Parliament SPECIAL MAGISTRATES Council Removes Them From Political Control [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 8 October 1931
State Parliament SPECIAL MAGISTRATES Council Removes Them From Political Control The Justices Bill was amended by the Legislative Council yesterday to provide that no special magistrate shall be appointed or dismissed except on the recommendation of the cnier Jus tice of the Supreme Court. The amendment, which was moved by Mr. Duncan (Lib.), and supported by the Minister of Local Government (Mr. Jelley), also provides that legis lation dealing with the retiring- age of magistrates shall not be affected. Mr. Duncan said the independence of the judiciary was the sole security of the maintenance of the law. therefore it was undesirable that the judiciary should hold office at the will of the .Government, especially when the Gov ernment might be a party to proceed ings before it. Judges were appointed for life, said Mr. Duncan, but special magistrates held office at the will of the Govern ment in power, except in one or two cases where the? had been appointed for a term of about three y...
ENIGMA OF FIFTH CREEK TRAGEDY No Evidence Of Motive At Inquest [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 8 October 1931
ENIGMA OF FIFTH CREEK TRAGEDY No Evidence Of Motive At Inquest "Did you ring Dalgety's?" "No, could not get through, I'll do it in the morning." These were the only words exchanged " between Charles James Hunter and Mrs. Gera Emmerton, of Fifth Creek, before he shot her in the face last Friday night and then com mitted suicide. No cause for his action was revealed at the inquest, which was conducted yesterday. Mr. E. M. Sabine, SJM. (acting Coroner) found thai Hunter had died as the result of a gunshot wound deliberately self-inflicted. Robert Green, of Fifth Creek, said he had known Hunter all his life, and was aware that he had been receiving medical attention lately. He saw him about 8 o'clock on the night of the tragedy, and he appeared to be per fectly normal. Dr. A. F. Lynch, who had conducted a post-mortem examination, said that death was due to the discharge of a shotgun, the muzzle having been placed in the mouth. The whole of the skull had been shattered. "On Best of Terms...
FIFTY YEARS AGO From "The Advertiser," October 8, 1881. [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 8 October 1931
FIFTY YEARS AGO From "The Advertiser," October 8, 1881. ONE of the most convincing proofs of the progress and prosperity of this colony may be found by a perusal of the list of joint stock companies. These represent, an aggregate capital of several million pounds sterling, for the most • part earned and invested by colonists. Auctioneers and lawyers are brought under legal control in their dealings with the public. Such precautions are certainly not less desirable in the case of sharebrokers, and would not be resented by the respectable portion of them. At present our share market is most unsatisfactory, no secu rity being provided against sharp dealing and frauds. /^JREAT success attended the *J last shipment of Australian meat to London by the Orient. The mutton arrived in splendid condition and was in great de mand, fetching as much as 6}d. a pound, the highest price yet realised. Should the next ship ment be of as good a quality, that figure is likely to be ex ceeded. Si&...
GAUGING WEIGHT OF WOOL Country Grocer's Novel Scheme DID NOT SEE BALE Apparently neither theoretical knowledge, nor practical experience, is the best asset in trying to win a motor car by guessing the weight of a bale of wool. [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 8 October 1931
GAUGING WEIGHT OF WOOL Country Grocer's Novel Scheme DID NOT SEE BALE Apparently neither theoretical knowledge, nor practical experience, is the best asset in trying to win a motor car by guessing the weight of a bale of wool. The Lord Mayor's Fund competition for the Wolseley Hornet sedan car, de-&lt;*> cided on Tuesday, proved that, from among the three who tied for first prize were a grocer and a milliner. Their methods of calculating the weight were novel. Mr. G. P. S. Harvey, of Aberdeen, the grocer, could not come to the city to see the bale, so he added the height, width, and depth, taking the result in inches as pounds. Then for ounces he added the last figures of the respective dimensions—that is, if the height was 45 inches he used ihe five. That gave him 95 lb. 15 ounces. He was a little doubtful of that re sult, so he bought another ticket, iooked through the commercial columns of "The Advertiser" to get the weight of a bale of scoured wool, compared the size ...

TOBACCO INDUSTRY Decreased Imports Cuts Customs Revenue Canberra, October 7. [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 8 October 1931
TOBACCO INDUSTRY Decreased Imports Cuts Customs Revenue Canberra, October 7. The shrinkage in Customs revenue due to the increased home production of tobacco might have to be largely if not entirely, counterbalanced by in- creases in direct taxation, said the As- | sistant Minister for Industry (Senator Daly) today. In 1929, 1,384^32 lb. of leaf were pro duced from just over 2,000 acres. To day it seemed reasonable to expect a crop of 10,000 acres which, at present prices, would be worth £1.250,000, and which should yield about one-third of Australia's requirements. As Aus tralia in 1929-30 imported 20,000,000 lb. of foreign produced tobacco, valued at £3,000,000, the shrinkage of Customs revenue owing to the increased pro duction must be given careful con-! sideration.

PREFERENCE SHARE DIVIDENDS "Absurd To Talk Reduction By Legislation" [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 8 October 1931
PREFERENCE SHARE DIVIDENDS "Absurd To Talk Reduction By Legislation" Agreement with the statement by the chairman of the Melbourne Stock Exchange (Mr. C. E. Bowden) that he deplored that propaganda was being spread in favor of a reduction in the rates of dividends on preference shares by legislation, wss expressed yesterday by the president of the Adelaide Stock Exchange (Mr. Walter Gumeri. "I fully approve of Mr. Bowden's remarks," Mr. Gurner said. "Many people tJhinir that tbe dividend on preterence shares is interest, but such is not the case; it is portion of the profits of a. company, and if there are no profits there are no dividends on preference shares. "It is, therefore, unjust to talk of compulsory reduction of tbe dividend on preference shares. There are many companies in South Australia which are today unable to pay dividends on their preference shares, so it is absurd to talk about reducing the rate by Act of Parliament." Proposal Inequitable The chairman of the Associa...

As a War Service Home occupant, this Minister had persistently failed to pay his rent. The deputy leader of the Opposition (Mr. Gullett) demanded the ""mp of the man. Mr. Cunningham—He is not a mem ber of this Parliament, and it Is none of your business. Mr. White (TJ-A-P., Vic.)—lt Is quite unnecessary to assure us that it is not a Federal Minister.
