Wicked and Immoral (Published by arrangement.) [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 19 February 1925
Wicked and Immoral (Piublished by arrangement.) " Prohibition is intrinsically wicked and immoral," said Mr. Harry B. Kirtland, in an'interview to the Amer ica Associated Press, " because it is directed against the rights and liber +ties of the people. and it is peurile in its foolishness because it is opposed not only to the spirit of the Constitu. tion but to the law of nature. '"The powers behind Constitutional Prohibition are up against a problem of repression that has been too much for the most absolute despots that have attempted enforcement from the dark. est ages to the present time. They are beating their faces against facts of nature which have always defeated, as they always will defeat, the might. lest rulers of the world. ' It. is for this reason, as Mr. Kirt. land submits, that in spite of the Constitution, in spite of the law, in spite of. contrary views publicly ex pressed, good citizens, men of every. class,'violate Prohibition, and would very properly resent the im...

There was no improvement im the actual basis of values at our sale this week as compared with that current at the closing sales of last week though there was a rather wider range of competition. Japanese en quiry showed no improvement, but considerable help was afforded by local manufacturers while Continental buyers also participated- Values are nov about on a par with those rul|ing in December 1923, and although the decline as compared with rates ob taining, in November and December last is very considerable, there is no great desire in evidence on the part of manufacturers to buy readily. The efforts being made to stabilise values in the direction of extending the selling season, will, it is hoped, have a bene icial influence on market conditions. It has now been decided to re-arrange selling.rosters by closing the present series today (Thursday) and reopen on 9th Marsh. The interval of a fort night it it i hoped will afford so opportunily for the market to gain streng...
