The connections of Prince Claro got no extravagant odds to-day. When Dark Chief was relieved of his engagement in the first division of the Welter Mile there was a rush to get on to tho Claro horse.

The Investment market had a very sub- dued tone on the Brisbane Stock Ex- change yesterday, and trading was along quiet Unes. Australian Consols again had an easing tendency, buying support being lacking, resulting In sellers In a few in- stances ' having to descend to buyers' limits to effect liquidation. Business In the group was dull and restricted to four Issues. Outside of the group trading was desultory, with prices on the whole dis- playing no movement of note. Sellers of the 3% per cent 1042 had to make a concession of 2/6 to dlsposo of a parcel at £101/12/6, closing at buyer £101/12/6, seller £101/17/0, the same recession also taking place In the 1038 4 per cent on a parcel bringing £102/17/6, closing st £102/16/3-£102/18/9.

TRADE AND FINANCE. City Council Compliment—Wool Rise Explanation— Australian Shares and Debentures—The Commonwealth Sacrifices. City of Brisbane Loan. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 31 August 1933
TRADE AND FINANCE. City Council Compliment^ - Wool Rise Explanation Australian ¡Shares and Debentures - The Commonwealth Sacrifices. City of Brisbane Loan. Tlie Brisbane City Council hns got its loan of £55,000 for electricity ox tensions from Messrs. J. B. Were and Son, of Melbourne, on very fair tenns. For a 20 years' currency 4 per cent, certainly is not high, especially as the interest will be taxable. At first the impression was that the issue was at a discount, but wc are assured that it was at par, and a feature is that it has been secured without Government guarantee. The last Commonwealth internal issue on behalf of the States -£5,000,000, and with some £81 mil- lion subscribed-was at 33 per cent., and that will give a net return pretty well equal to the City Council's 4 per cents. Thus the terms will not affect the market rate for any new issue by the Commonwealth on behalf of the States to completo the year's pro- gramme of works expenditure. True, the amount concerned co...

His progress seemed to be fair until last Thurs- day week, when he had a very severe attack. This was followed last Satur- day by a still more serious attack, and, except for occasional brief periods, his Grace had since ...

"The Harvester" disagreed with the view expressed in the South, and a well-known Queensland racing man, who desires to hide his identity under the norn de plume of "Ob- server," writes interestingly on the matter. He states: "In my opinion Tre- gilla was not a stayer." He then says that some of his friends were tkeen on 'iTegilla lor the Melbourne Cuo won by Phar Lap, and "Observer," after hav- ing had a good look at Tregilla, made up his mind that the then, three-year old was too heavy in the shoulders lo win, a two mile handicap.
