How to Get Better Politicians That is the Problem [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 11 March 1924

i .WfM.^TO .nv/' Problem IS the quality of our Parliaments deteriorating? Are politicians worse than they used to be ? 11' so, why ? Take our own State Parliament : The personnel is mediocre. Statesmanship is conspicuously absent, there is lack of character, and intellectually, members e&sm very limited! The 'tone of Parliament often seems lamentably low. Outsiders of ability, capable of judging, who have had much dealing . With Ministers.., and rank and file, become pessimistic. i hey nnu in oui politics a lack' of grip, of grit — it is hard to tind a man who is capable of taking hold. There is timidity everywhere, -the habit of procrastination is ever present, and leadership seems to be nowhere. 'Courage,' wrote one of the keenest British students of. politics, 'is tho highest, and, perhaps, the rarest quality among politicians. It is specially needed in democratic countries.' The puzzle in politics is to find it. ? Our ablest men rarely go in for politics. They do not lik...

Will the Age Rule Apply to Mr. King? [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 11 March 1924

Will the Age Rule Apply to Mr. King? iN all this talk about, the Metropolitan Bleat Board, there is one phase that so far has not been mentioned. It is this: Mr. G. H. S. King, Chairman, we understand, will be 65 years of age in June next. Now if this is so, will Mr. King be permitted to carry on after his 65th birthday? Will tho Public Service regulations come into operation hereP ' This phase is important because if Mr. King must retire on his 65th birthday, it changes the position very considerably. Assuming that Mr. King has to retire in June next, and .assuming that in April he is re appointed Chairman, he will hold the position only for about three months. After that, what? If Cabinet is satisfied that Mr. King must retire in June next, will it re-appoint liim Chairman in April for three months? If it does so re-appoint him, has it anyone in view for chairman after June? Cabinet should make itself clear on this point. It may be, of course, that in his position of Chairman of t...

Megass and Gelotex COMMERCIAL USE SAVED FROM THE FURNACE [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 14 March 1924

Megass and Gelotex ' ? * ? ? COMMERCIAL USE SAVED FROM THE FURNACE It is quite on the cards that the next year or two will reveal some wonder ful development, botfc In Queensland and) in this State, in tibe economic use of megass or sugar-cane fibre— a waste product difficult of disposal. Celotex, a building composition pre pared from megass, possesses a wide range of utilisation in the construction of many of California's tonlest .villas. It is -understood that arrangements have been made for the manufacture of celotex in the Commonwealth. Megass is also being pressed into use in the preparation of a rough fabric for top-dressing or mulching the fine tilth in wihich cane 'sets' and pine apple suckers are planted — this pre vents undue evaporation of moisture under an intense tropical sun. This practice is being extensively fol lowed in the Southern States of Ame rica and the Hawaiian Islands. So suc cessful has this Innovation proved in the sugar-cane and pineapple industries that ...

Rabbit Trade Troubles "COSTS TOO HIGH." LONDON MARKET PROSPECTS. [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 14 March 1924

Rabbit Trade Troubles 'COSTS TOO HIGH.' LONDON MARKET PROSPECTS. Even 'the rabbit' trade' has its ?difficulties ! For news of this, you have only to go away from home. London Meat Trades Journal reports/an interview with Mr. Stuart Harvey, Chairman of the Country Packers and Freezers' Association of New South Wales, 'who is now in London inves tigating the position.' We quote the fallowing from the intevrvipw wliinli will interest our landholders. ''Various large operators here have said quite openly, that they consider Australia is asking too much for rabbits, and they infer that the pack ers are making excessive profits out of present figures. I would like to assure them most emphatically that this is not the case, and, as a matter of fact, I doubt if any Australian pack er has made profits out of his opera tions during the last three years. Most of them, and in this I include my own Company, which is probably the largest individual operator in New South 'VVales, consider themselv...

LEAGUE OF THE EMPIRE OUT WEST. [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 14 March 1924

LEAGUE OF THE EMPIRE OUT WEST. Dear 'Planets, '—It's a good while since I last wrote to the goad old League, so I'm having another flip at it. I m afraid I'll have to have a good deal of practice before I'll be able to write a letter like 'Southern Star' or 'Porkygine,' or any of those in teresting Leaguers. It's quite a while since I saw a letter from 'Porky- pine.' Since I joined tho League I'm sure my mouth— which extended from ear to ear before — is' gradually getting wider. If I keep on reading the funny adventures of 'Southern Star,' etc., the results will be disastrous. It's awfully cold liere at present. That sounds rather -ridiculous in . Janu- ary, but it's quite true. Last week the temperature was up to 118 degrees, and it suddenly dropped to 70, and it hasn't been much more than that since. It would be good if this cold weather kept up all the summer. 1 hate hot weather. Summer is all right down in Sydney, or any place by the sea, but, by jove, it's 'up to putty' out her...

A NEW LEAGUER. [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 14 March 1924

A NEW LEAGUER. Dear 'Planets,' — May I become a member of your happy League? It seems to be forever growing. I am just a very quiet person who haa been thinking of writing for a long time, but couldn't pluck up the cour age. Seeing so many bonza letters on the Page, I thought mine would look very insignificant there. However, there is nothing like trying; is there, 'Plaiiets'P I live in the Walcha district, which is devoted mainly to woo Ingrowing and agriculture. The town is not very large. There is no railway through it, the nearest railway being 12 miles away. So all the, transport is done by motor service. People aro still liv ing in hopes that the railway will run through the town yet. The route has been surveyed, but so far that is all that has been done. Meantime the powers that be are considering whether they will proceed with it or not. Every body hopes-/' of course, that : they - will. I haven't been reading the 'Stock Journal' very long, and was surprised to find so much ...

Answers to Correspondents. [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 14 March 1924

Answers to Corresnondonts. O.B.— So you, too, have been trying to find out where 'outback' is. It is always further out and back of beyond. If yon live on the Coast it is just over the range,, if you live just over the range, it is .further West. It is a great place; anyway. Your idea of a League meeting in Sydney at Easter time or some other convenient time is well worth discuss ing.,- Lots of Leaguers come to Syd ned, and it ought to be possible to arrange a meeting. It certainly would be good to meet. I have not read 'Swift Lightning,' but from your description it must be good. What a lot of readable books there are in the world! As you say, we present-day humans are not satis fied, which perhaps, is just as well. One should be unsatisfied but not dissatisfied. _ 'Maurine' isn't a business girl, but she lives in Sydney.

Boiled Down [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 14 March 1924

Boiled Down Ceremonies at Tutank.'s tomb in cluded the slaying of two bulls as a sacrifice. It seems that Carter also made a bull of it. A Melbourne clergyman, who lias been offered £3000 a year by a Sydney business firm says he 'can buy anil sell anything.*' There's faith for you. Fish, discovered in the Niagara River, were found to be drunk, owing to the dumping of 'moonshine.' Per haps they felt they had to live up to that reputation — 'drink like a fish.' The Victorian Police Department lias been flooded with applications for the job of policeman. Apparently there is a lot unhappier than the polije man's. Mr. Ramsay MacDonald tilts at the men who buy honors. But the men who have bought them will not mind — their hides axe feet thick, and their souls aro mud? 'Whether we have a Tory, Liberal, or a Labour Government, you cannot do much,' Mr. MacDonald says, 'with people who can do nothing but be amused by somebody else or with the gramophone.'

Boiled Shown ? Billy Hughes told them in America the other day that the East, which onco dined upon a crust, now demands its place at the world's banquet table. The world simply has to stomach it. Arne Borg is so pleased with Aus tralia that he talks of coming back to live here after the Olympic Games. Apparently Arne likes the way that Australia licks ? him. The franc, normally worth 9Jd, would only buy tuppence in London on Satur day.

'We came together in the beginning as a composite Govern ment drawn from the different parties. There was an atmosphere of complete want of trust between the people who support our respective parties. But the twelve months that have gone have completely destroyed that. COMPLETE CONFIDENCE.
