Longreach Leader FRIDAY, JUNE 8th, 1923. THE PROBLEM OF LAND SETTLEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 8 June 1923
f gttgrmr-ft %tsfoa FRIDAY, JUNE 8th, 1923. THE PROBLEM OF LAND SÉT/ELE MENT. There ia increasing recognition of the fact that land management, and land culture are technical task. There was a time when lt was thought that all the man on the'land had to do, was to sit down and watch things grow. We have emerged ïroirf that stage. Even In a country like Áus ' tt a lia, where natural reources > are sb abundantly displayed and lavishly available, and where the natural return in anything like an average season is so extraordinarily generous, we have reached the stage of realizing that, brains and experience are necessary in .making the land produce or maintain what is asked of it. It has beenj a long process arriving at this stage andi . there-are still numbers "Who are'in mental arrears in regard to it. This is to be seen in tho cotton fields of .this year's crop. - Some will have a gooa average reium m a. muoi j unfavourable year, because they carefully ' and skillfully prepared th...

Prince Caricatured. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 8 June 1923
Prince Caricatured. A cartoon depicting the Prince of "Wales, grown old and dejected, standing at a reg- istry office table, and marrying his land- lady's daughter, Flossie Pearson, has shocked the critics at the exhibition of Max Beerbohm's caricatures. Mr, Beer- bohm's caption reads : "Long choosing, and beginning late." There is what pur- ports to be an extract from "The Times" of September 10, 1972, which says : "Ed- ward Windsor, formerly the well-known heir apparent to the late King George, and latterly residing at Linen-avenue, Ealing, the home of the bride." In what is intended to represent an interview wjth a "Times" representative, the mother of the bride is supposed to have said : "I always hoped Flossie was destined to make a brilliant match. However, I believe' Mr. Windsor will make a good husband. I must say, a nicer, quiter, more pleasant spoken gen- tleman never lodged under my roof." Mr. j Beerbohm's taste is at present being hotly questioned. J ______ I
Kept Behind The Rope. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 8 June 1923
Kept Behind Tho Rope. This is how they do things in Japan. A party of Englishmen were watching a matsuri, or river carnival, at Osaka and, with the usual contempt for authority of tho Briton abroad, took their stand beyond the rope barrier which had been erected to keep people off the bridges. The police would have been justified in taking strong measures. What they actually did was to untie the rope on one side and pass it in front of the offending foreigners, with an apology, in which our "honourable" per- son?: were mentioned more than once, for taking this course.

Alderman Diddams' Views. .'Matters are mighty bad in the northern capital," said the Mayor of Brisbane, Al- derman DiddamsVat the Shires Conference in Sydney. "Under the present franchise thc nomad who dosses in a city lodging house for a while has a vote as to how the rates in the city should be spent, while owners of property in the city, if they live in a suburb, have no vote in the city elec- ' tions. We are likely to be seriously ham- pered by the legislation forecasted for the Parliament just elected."

Wool Prices and Demand Continent Most Active [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 8 June 1923
Wool Prices and Demand - -_ vi Continent Most Active Winchcombe Carson Ltd, Sydney, ? re- port : The character of the offerings at the Bris- bane "Wool Sal ss was, to a greet extent responsible for any easing in bidding not- iceable. Dry times haye made their marie on the clip. Much tenderness and fault was in evidence. As a result, competition was chiefly confined to the Continental section. Sound wools are usually the goal of Japanese, Yorkshire, and American , buyerB. Few clips of this type were avail able. Garmauy, France, and Belgium, therefore, largely had the field to them- selves. . In face of the expanding consumption and restricted supplies, a constant upward trend in wool prices might be anticipated by the over-optimistic. But the experi- ence in Brisbane shows that buyers are not likely to be stampeded into paying ex- treme figures for raw materials. Caution' has come to the fore frequently in the last twelve months, when a too decided upward, trend in prices has been ev...

MEAT TRADE. BRISBANE, Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 8 June 1923
MEAT TRADE. _ ? - . BRISBANE, Thursday. Prior to his departure for the South, tho Prime Minister (Captain Bruce) said that during the war Australia had shown a great'deal of consideration for Britain. "There is something wrong in Britain's atti- tude," he added, "when we see shops in England to-day piled, full with Argentine meat, while in Australia the meat industry is languishing through lack of orders. It was only the other day that we saw two great ' meat contracts go to the Argentine. Why should England push the ' Argentine barrow? Argentine took no part in the war ' and is not burdened ' to-day with any loan war debts. Oh the other hand Australia " gave England every help iri the crises, both with men and with supplies of produce. (Applause.) But although during the war Britain required the greater portion of Aus- tralia's production of wool and méat,'which were necessary to her, it is pleasing to re- member that we did not exact the last shll lingling for what we sold to Brit...
