Brisbane Wool Sales. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 8 June 1923

Brisbane Wool Sales. - . n rr The New Zealand Loan and Mercantile Agency Co., Ltd., Brisbane, report as fol- lows, with reference to the series of sales which took place in Brisbane.on May 30th and 31st :-At the sales held, the Combined Brokers submitted catalogues amounting to 32740 bales. Some clips from the more favoured portions of the various wool grow- ing districts of the State opened up satis- factorily, being well grown, in nice condi- tion, and free from fault, but the majority again showed evidence pf the adverse season which has been experienced, and al- though fine quality and free from vegetable defects, were poorly grown, thin, and a large proportion was tender and carried a con- siderable amount of dust. 'Considering the conditions under which most of the wool had been grown, however, the clip opened up better than might have been expected.

Children's Court. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 8 June 1923

fflillflran's Court. On Thursday last a boy under the age of 17 years appeared in the Longreach Children's Court on a charge of having ob- tained money by means .of a valufeless cheque. We learn that the lad in ques- tion obtained a blank cheque form and Ail- ing same in endeavoured to have it cashed at several business houses. in Longreach, eventually succeeding in obtaining portion of the money, and s*v.dng .that he would call back later for ene balance. Not re- turning, the casher of the cheque became suspicious, and instituted inquiries, which showed that the lad had immediately hired a car and left the town. Mr. Curtis, P.M., who occupied the bench, admonished the lad and discharged him. ; Merton: "I had to kill my dog this morn- ing."

In Days of Old. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 8 June 1923

Ju Days of Old. In days of old, when profiteers grew too bold very drastic means were employed to regulate prices in the interests of the con- sumer. When, George III. took the throne the law framed to maintain the so-celled "just" price" still stood. "All endeavours whatsoever," it said "to enhance tho com- mon price of merchandise, and all kinds of practices which have an apparent tendency thereto, are highly criminal." The law courts did their best, to maintain fair prices, and judges severely punished deal- ers who, with a view to profit, bought standing crops, acquired produce before ar- rival in markets, or purchased it after ar- rival to sell again. All these practices, com m oil to-day, are recognised as good business, but in those days such dealers might be put in the pillory or expelled from tho town in which they lived.

Girls in Wine Shops. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 8 June 1923

Girls in Wine Shops. Some startling allegations were made by a. deputation which asked the Minister for Justice, Mr. Levy to abolish winebars in Sydney.' It was alleged that many of the prettiest girls in Sydney were being ruined by these saloons. It was stated drugged wine was sold to the girls, wh,o were then robbed and abducted. Mr. Levy could not promise that wine saloons would be abol- ished. The question, he said, was bound up with the general one of liquor reform, and the people would be called up to express an ' opinion by referendum. He would refer to the Cabinet the question of abolishing' barmaids from hotels, and also ttíe^matter of. preventing sweets and fruit shops felling what the deputation stated were wines of the. most deadly make. <

WATER BOARD RATES. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 8 June 1923

WATER BOARD RATES. Earlier in the year the Water and Sew- erage* Board faced with the necessity of in- creasing its revenue by about £70,000, (probably to help meet the steadily rising Interest Bill) decided to increase the Water rate, not throughout the Water Board area, but on City Properties. The substantial increase aroused a very emphatic protest which the Board was forced to heed. It was however on the horns of a dilemma. The extra money had to be raised some- where and the new rate was struck, but the* very strong objection voiced by ratepay- ers individually and collectively had its effect. An appeal was made to the Gov- ernment who agreed to grant the Board a temporary loan provided there was no increase in the Water Rate for 5 years. This condition was agreed to but as the in- creased rate was already struck the Board was in somewhat of a quandary. A way out has however now been found. The new rate for the first half of. the year has been largely collected. It has accordin...

"Help, Police." TWO YOUNG MEN CAUSE A SENSATION. THE SEQUEL IN THE POLICE COURT. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 8 June 1923

" Help, Police. " TWO YOUNG REEN CAUSE A SENSATION. THE SEQUEL IN THE POLICE COURT. On Wednesday morning last two young men, John William Power and Harry Free-, man appeared at the Longreach Police Court to answer to a charge that they had been found upon the dwelling of Mrs. J. Springer, for unlawful purposes on tho. night of May 31st. On the night in ques- tion quite a sensation was caused in the neighbourhood by cries for police assist- ance and the call of "burglars." The two ; young men were caught and next morning appeared at the local Police Court, where they pleaded guilty to being upon the premises, but not for unlawful purposes. Sub-inspector Farrell prosecuted. When « they were called upon on Wednesday both men pleaded "Not guilty," Freeman adding that he did not remember anything about the matter as he was drunk at the time, and that when they were arrested they were charged with being drunk. The Sub-inspector : They were not charged with being drunk. Freeman ad- mits ha...

BRISBANE NOTES. (From Our Own Correspondent). CABINET RECONSTRUCTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 8 June 1923

BRISBANE NOTES. (From Our Own Correspondent). -: o : CABINET RECONSTRUCTION. When Mr. Theodore returns from Mel- bourne a meeting- of the Party will be held for the appointment of officers, officials, and for the general discussion of session business. So far the date has not been Axed, but the meeting will probably be held shortly, as all the members of the Party are back from the North. It is expected that Mr. Coyne will elect to go to the Land Court. He wanted that billet when Mr. . Hardacre had first choice at the time of the last vacancy ; and it is understood that, while one or two other Ministers will be in the field, the selection is practically cer- tain to fall to Mr. Coyne. That will leave a vacancy in Cabinet . rank which will doubtless be filled by Mr. Stopford, who has been a very decided success in the Home Office, and his elevation to full rank is assured. Mr. Pollock may step into his shoes as Assistant Minister. It has been suggested that Mr. Pollock will get the S...

THE FUTURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 8 June 1923

THE OPPOSITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 8 June 1923

THE OPPOSITION. The recent election has resulted in trans- ferring the direct leadership of the Op- position from Mr. Vowles to Mr. Taylor. There will be some changes there because in the last session the Country Party took up the whole of the front Opposition bench and it must now go elsewhere. Mr. Green was deputy leader of the United Party but his defeat makes another appointment necessary, and as Mr. Fletcher and Mr. McGregor have also lost their seats tho choice seems likely to rest between Mr. El- phinstone and Mr. Fry. Mr. Appel could get the position if he wished but it is un- likely that he will be an applicant because . he likes more freedom of action than would be possible as a deputy leader. The man holding that office naturally has to be in the House early and late, ready to relieve the leader whenever required, and Mr. Ap- pel prefers to get home early on "off nights" or to take a trip in his boat at the week-end rather than have to wait in town to attend some unintere...
