Points in Passing. (Written Specially for the "Northern District Standard.") Compulsory Voting. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 26 August 1915

Points in Passing. (Written Specially for the "Northern District Standard.") Compulsory Voting. A bill toprovide for compulsory voting ,is shortly to come before the House of Representatives. This is one of the bills Mr Kisher is anxious to see passed. If its results when in operation—should it pass—are equal to those of Queens land at the last State election, as the outcome of a similar State measure, then the I.abor party will have nothing to lose, but everything to gain. One serious defect, however* in the bill is that it makes no provision for postal voting. In Queensland this is part of the electoral law of the State by which for the following reasons persons are allowed to vote : —1. A person residing at least five miles from the nearest polling place. II. A person unable to go to the polling booth on account of age, informity or ill-health. III. A person who believes he will be absent on polling day from the electoral dis trict for which he is enrolled. The per centage of vot...

Ladies' Column. A Decided Change. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 26 August 1915

Ladies' Column. (By Rosalanil). A Decided Change. For a lew seasons now we have had no really drastic or pronounced changes in the general lines of dress. Of coursc numerous fancics have come and gone. The coat lengths have fluctuated between short and full length ; a new shape in the collar ;a bell here or a few pleats there constituted the full extent of the 'variety. But this season we have a complete and entire change. The silhouette or outline of the garment has undergone a complete revision. Instead of being shaped almost like a top as was the case with the tight skirt and short, full coat, the sil houtte is more like the shape of a bell. This drastic change is brought about, not so much by the moulding of the figure by means of the corsets, as by the cut of the garments them selves. This change in the sil houette is most evident when one I looks at the width of the fashionable skirts. Anything ranging up to four and ti half yards round the hem is now la mode. The flare is, of...

with which is incorporated the Boort Standard, Korong Vale Lance, and Quam batook Herald. Interesting reading matter will be found on our sixth page. . Thursday, August 26. Our Train Service. In our railways we certainly pos sess a valuable asset. What the actual value might be it would be extremely difficult to determine, owing to the unsatisfactory and unbusinesslike methods of finance, which have been, and are adopted' principally in the direction of proper provision not being made for depreciation and obsolescence. It must also not be overlooked that, notwithstanding what may be said to the contrary, an asset of this nature is most valuable for its in terest-producing virtues, for deduct revenue, and ultimately the asset resolves itself into an accumulation of old wood, steel, and iron, valu able only according to the intrinsic worth of such commodities, with a considerable reduction on book values of railway lauds occasioned by consequent"depreciation. When sentiment enters int...

We have received a copy of Dal gety's Annual Wool Review for Australia fur tbe past season, which contains the usual exhaustive sum mary of everything relating to tbe past season's clip and the market ing of same. The publication, which is in its seventeenth year of issue, deals comprehensively not only with the wool clip, but also with many branches ol tbe wool industry. Naturally the war has played a very large part iu the wool-selling operations during the past twelve months, and the wool trade experiences in Great Britain, as well as 011 the continent, are summarised in a manner that should make the record a useful one in later years. Production of Wool. The oversea exports of wool during the statistical year ending June 30th, amounted to 1,575,688 bales from Australia, and 562,0l'l from New Zealand, the former being a decrease of 390,8SS bales, as compared with the preceding i year, and tbe latter an in...

Miss Starr plays a season in Brisbane oefore setting out and settling down to well-earned rest in Honolulu. Then she makes a beo lino to New Vork, before entering on another engagement for the "linn" —in South Africa. The career of the young actress here has been remark able. Different critics have passed different opinions upon her, but none iiavo escaped tho fascination of her personality. She iias reached right over the stage to them all. She has played comedy and tragedy, but while her appearance in tho former ap proached only to failure, there is no two opinions about the merit ol' her work in emotional drama.

THE SILVER LINING. "Cheer Up" Policy Will Brighten Everybody. Australia's Magnificent Position. Figures and Facts That Tell Their Own Story. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 26 August 1915

THE SILVER LINING. "Cheer Up" Policy Will Brighten Everybody. Australia's Magnificent Position. Figures and Facts That Tell Their Own Story. Boiled down to an ink-spot, the Fish er war finance implies that the ordinary revenue this year amounts to £23,540,000. This in spite of war and drought and the desperate efforts of linancial scaremongers is £1,12S,290 more than last year. Ordinary ex penditure for this year was estimated | at £2G,4SS,3SS, and war expenditure at £47,05-1,716, making a combined but i clior's and general household bill of £74,043,104, as against an ordinary expenditure last year ot £36,S23,615. I The gap between revenue and expen diture, amounting to £50,503,104, is to be bridged, with a trilling excep tion of £10,103,104, by the local war loan of £20,000,000, plus £10,400,000 advanced by the British Government, and an income tax of £4,000,000.

BIG SUGAR DEAL. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 26 August 1915

BIG SUGAR DEAL. It is not generally known that when the war broke out the British Govern ment purchased 900,000 tons of raw sugar, with a view to avoiding a fam ine in that commodity. The deal in volved an outlay of about eighteen mil lions sterling. Java, Mauritius, and Demerara, among other producing cen tres, are contributing to this enormous supply. Perhaps that is why sugar is so scarce here—or is it the Trust? The wounded soldier was being at tended by the doctor. The latter seemed to treat the case in a light hearted manner. He prodded the sol dier in the ribs and grinned. "You'll be all right," he said. "You have got a "bullet in your left arm; but that does not trouble me In the least." "I don't suppose it does," said the soldier. "An' if you'd got a bullet in both arms I don't suppose it 'ud trou ble me, either."
