QUEENSLAND. CONFERENCE OF PREMIERS STATEMENT BY MR. KIDSTON. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 25 May 1910
QUEENSLAND. CONFERENCE OF PREMIERS STATEMENT BY MR.: ' KIDSTON. The Premier, ..speaking on Thursday of some -published re marks concerning a conference ot Premiers on 17th June, said he could not^ at present see what good purpose was likely to result from such a gathering. The Pre miers had managed to' secure a proposition for submission to the electors at the recent general election, and that proposition was wisely or unwisely rejected. The obligation to return to the States three-fourths of the Customs revenue held good until the end of this year, and thereafter until the Federal Parliament other wise provided. If the Federal Government wished to pay the States less than three-fourths of the net Customs it would have to make a definite proposal to that effect, and secure the sanction of both Houses of the Federal Parliament. Apparently it had already made up its mind that it would do so, and it seemed it had determined what the proposal was to be. That being the case, Mr Kidston c...

The Court (Mr Justice Isaacs dissenting) disallowed the ap peal. The Chief Justice (Sir Samuel Griffith) remarked that at best the invention was -a direc tion how to apply the ? laws of gravitation in order to keep in contact two bodies, one of which was being consumed.

HIS TOE IN' HIS POCKET. A young man named Richard Fitzgerald was driving a plough on Wednesday last at Boorha mon, when he accidentally placed his right foot in front of the coulter, which cut through the boot and completely severed the great toe. Fitzgerald recovered the toe, and, having unyoked his team of horses, returned to his employer's residence. He be haved in such a cool and collected manner that his employer found difficulty in believing the cause of his return until Fitzgerald produced his toe from his pocket. The sufferer was driven several miles to ? Rutherglen, but on arrival was too weak from loss of blood to allow of the administra tion of chloroform. He calmly bore the pain while the injury wps treated without aii^sthetics.

Crowds of people were astir at daybreak in order to get a position that would enable them to witness the funeral proces sion.
