BANKER AND CUSTOMER THEIR RELATIONSHIP [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 10 September 1926

BANKER AND CUSTOMER THEIR RELATIONSHIP Prominent in the courts recently was the case of a man who unsuccessfully sued his hank for £.'¡000 (writes "A Banker" in the Daily Wail). The sum was said to have been lost by him ow- ing to milking an investment on the strength of information given by the bank. Danks are, of course, consulted by their customers on a variety of subjects, but it will be seen that they run risks. A mistake made in doing some well-meant kindness might easily result in a lawsuit. For instance, a banker is under no obligation to give advice lo hi« cus- tomers on investments, hut if he does so negligently he is liable for damages should any loss result. Jewels, plate, and other articles of value aro left by customers at their banks for safe' cus- tody in the strong-rooms. if these were lost owing to the bunker's care- lessness the banker would have to make good the loss. He himself, however, has no claim on these goods. A customer might dc I .posit for safe keeping ...

LIVE STOCK PAUCITY OF OFFERINGS Holdings Well Stocked [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 10 September 1926

LIVE STOCK PAUCITY OF OFFERINGS Moldings Well Stocked As is customary at the end of the .winter, the usual livlinoss In the sheep and cattle market has been absent of late, and although the wool market opened at a 5 per cent, advance and has been maintained; forward deliv- ery business is practically out of the question. Considering that the season has been an exceptionally (rood one, it Is diffi- cult to account for the lack of offer- ings, but the real reason Is thal hold- ings arc well stocked and there does not appear lo he much outlet for the surplus sheep which the present good lambing will make. Some relief is fcxpected from Hie anticipated break of the drought in Queensland with Lhe usual October rains, but even with -thal help it is possible that tills year's off shears market will be on a lower basis than has existod for some years.

BURNS' LETTER FIND [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 10 September 1926

BURNS' LETTER FIND A find ol Burns letters of particu- lar Interest to Dumfries has been an- nounced. It consists of a large col- lection of letters written by that warm friend of the poet, John Syme, of Ryedale, to a friend in Edinburgh, Alexander Cunningham. For genera- tions these papers have reposed un- disturbed among the documents of the Cunningham family, and only recently have they been brought to light. They give a vivid picture of the society in, which Burns, moved, of his life at Dumfries, and particularly of his death and funeral. They show thal the life of Burns at Dumfries was a happy one, and not a period of gloom or tragedy, as some writers have indi- cated. The letters- are now in the possession of Dr. Joseph Hunter, Dum- fries, and they are to be published.
