Wickens) showed that the cost of groceries and food in the various States for Novem- ber showed that of the five States in which there were increases compared with the corresponding month of last year, Queensland's increase of 1.7 per cent was the lowest.

BIG FIRE AT ESK. ESK, December 29. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 2 January 1930
BIG FIRE AT ESK. ESK. December 29. Damage estimated at £10,000 was caused by a fire which destroyed the store owned and occupied by A. J. Heap &nbsp; and Co. early this morning. About 3 a.m. Mr. Heap and nearby re- sidents were awakened by an explosion and flames were seen issuing from the building. A bucket brigade was quickly formed, but the building was gutted in half an hour. The flames spread to the bakehouse adjoining which was also destroyed. The brick wall next to the burning store saved the remainder of the busi- ness portion of the town from a similar fate. The wall withstood the flames until they died down and then collapsed on to a butcher's shop occupied by M. M'Kil- lop. A number of persons in the shop narrowly escaped injury from the fall- ing timbers. The shop, which was valued &nbsp; at £500, was badly damaged and will have to be rebuilt. Although the neighbouring buildings &nbsp; were blistered by heat, the bucket bri- gade prevented them fr...
HAICHING ATTACKED. TOWNSVILLE, December 30. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 2 January 1930
HAICHING ATTACKED. TOWNSVILLE. December 30. A story of attack by pirates on the &nbsp; steamer Haiching was told by passen- gers aboard the Changte which arrived to-day. The Haiching, which is a passenger vessel, left Swatow on December 5th carrying 300 passengers, principally Chinese. &nbsp; About 1.30 o'clock pirates, disguised as passengers, made a move. They rushed the ship's guards, killing two and injuring one. Captain Farrar, his officers and guards, immediately returned the at- tack and a fierce fight followed. The pirates were eventually repulsed, 12 being killed and six burnt out. The pirates had brought kerosene from the engine room and scattered it about. The flames quickly consumed the woodwork. &nbsp; A radio message brought assistance and naval men soon extinguished the flames. Escorted by a warship, the Haiching proceeded to Hong Kong with the bridge destroyed and a mass of twisted iron amidships. &nbsp;

Turner, and a box of plums, the pro- perty of Comino Bros. The evidence &nbsp; showed that the articles were taken &nbsp; from Rossberg's freezing chamber and hidden.

IMPORTED PEANUTS. BRISBANE, December 30. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 2 January 1930
IMPORTED PEANUTS. BRISBANE. December 30. The continuation of the embargo against the importation of peanuts for three years from June 30th, 1930, was sought by a deputation from the Queens- land Peanut Pool Board, which waited on the Acting Minister for Trade and Customs (Mr. F. M. Forde) to-day. &nbsp; The Board contended that it was able to supply the whole of Australia's requirements, amounting to 2000 tons of varieties for manufacturing purposes and 1000 to 1200 tons of the Virginian variety. The embargo has been brought into &nbsp; operation by the late Government in March last, with the proviso that all &nbsp; contracts for importation made up to the &nbsp; date of the proclamation should stand As the embargo covered a period of 15 months only it was of little value to the &nbsp; industry locally. The Minister, in reply, said that one of the reasons for his present visit to Queensland was to inquire into the al- &nbsp; legations ...

M. LITVINOFF. MOSCOW, December 24. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 2 January 1930
M. LITVINOFF. MOSCOW, December 24. The French Ambassador (M. Herbett) visited M. Litvinoff, noting Foreign &nbsp; Commissioner, in order to remind the Soviet of the Kellogg Pact obligations in connection with the Manchurian dis- pute. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; According to Soviet official papers, M. Litvinoff refused to accept the com- munication, reiterating what the Soviet Government has already intimated, namely that they regard the action of &nbsp; America, France and England as un- &nbsp; friendly, especially when the Man- &nbsp; churian dispute is almost settled. &nbsp; &nbsp; When M. Herbett pointed out that he was only acting on his Government's in- &nbsp; structions, M. Litvinoff replied that such instructions did not compel him to ac- cept the proffered declaration. M. Herbett tried to read the de- claration, but M. Litvinoff refused to listen. He also declined to accept the document, which M. Herbe...
"USE MORE WOOL." LONDON, December 24. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 2 January 1930
''USE MORE WOOL.'' LONDON. December 24. The suggestion that Australia and &nbsp; the other Dominions contribute £25,000 &nbsp; to the work of the British Research As- &nbsp; sociation of the woollen and worsted &nbsp; industry, as contained in that body's &nbsp; report was made in answer to the re- &nbsp; quest by the Federal Council of the Graziers' Association of Australia. &nbsp; The report says that the wool in- &nbsp; dustry should not, as it is now, be con- &nbsp; sidered in two sections, namely, pro- ducing and manufacturing, but should &nbsp; be closely co-ordinated into one econo- &nbsp; mic unit. &nbsp; If publicity is to be given to wool &nbsp; with its undoubted superiority as a tex- &nbsp; tile fibre, it is necessary to eusure that what is advertised is of standard excel- &nbsp; lence. This is the result of scientific exploitation of fibres to the utmo...
WHITE HOUSE. WASHINGTON, December 24. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 2 January 1930
WHITE HOUSE. WASHINGTON, December 24. The President (Mr. Hoover) to-night &nbsp; stood on the roof of a wing of the White House and watched a Christmas Eve fire seriously damage the remodell &nbsp; ed Executive offices. The outbreak was presumably due to a short circuit in the electric wiring. Half-an-hour after the fire began, dense clouds of smoke were pouring from the structure, while the entire building, including the President's &nbsp; office, was thoroughly soaked by streams of water poured on the fire. Mr. Hoover's secretary dashed into the President's office through the dense smoke and rescued all the President's papers and personal belongings. It is believed that important records have been destroyed.
OVERSEA LOAN. NEW YORK, December 24. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 2 January 1930
OVERSEA LOAN. NEW YORK, December 24. Australian reports that the Common- wealth Government is seeking to enter the American market in the near future is noted with considerable interest here. The Australian Press Association, which during the past fortnight has canvassed the sentiment on this and related questions, has received the clear- est intimations that any Australian borrowing during the first quarter of 1930 would face nearly insuperable bar- riers. &nbsp; The market here at the present mo- ment is naturally most unpropitious, even gold edged issues being taken up only with caution. The New York City Corporation, which has just dis- posed of a 40,000,000 dollar (£8,000,000) 40 year non-callable bond issued, did so on a return of 5.63 per cent to the investor on the basis of the non-takable &nbsp; features of the issue. Preferred flo- tations of important industrial stocks &nbsp; are being made only in the most moder- ate quantities, although in some c...
CHEERLESS CHRISTMAS. LONDON, December 25. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 2 January 1930
CHEERLESS CHRISTMAS. LONDON, December 23. The English Channel was swept by a sudden heavy gale, causing many ves- &nbsp; sels to seek port. &nbsp; A storm of terrific violence swept sou- &nbsp; thern Ireland last night. The streets in towns and villages were littered with &nbsp; fragments of tiles and slate blown from roofs. Hundreds of trees were uprooted. The lowlands were badly flooded. LONDON, December 26. Boisterous gales, hail and rain were &nbsp; the main ingredients of Christmas weath- er, though there were occasional bursts &nbsp; of sunshine between the rain storms. Christmas, however, was snowless throughout the country, though there &nbsp; were ice and sleet and north-east winds in Scotland. The gales in the Scilly Islands reached 75 miles an hour. The gale caused the Orkney Islands and other northern areas to miss the &nbsp; Christmas mails. Many University students and school &nbsp; children were u...
CHURCH OF ENGLAND. LONDON, December 24. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 2 January 1930
CHURCH OF ENGLAND. LONDON . December 24. The controversy regarding High Church practices in some churches of the diocese of Birmingham has reached &nbsp; a climax. The trustees of the parish &nbsp; of St. Aidans, including Bishop Truro, &nbsp; threaten Bishop Barnes with a High &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Court action to test his right to refuse &nbsp; &nbsp; to institute the appointed vicar, who refused to accept Bishop Barnes' con- ditions. Bishop Barnes has issued correspond- ence to the Press, in which he says he does not intend to contest the issue, which is moral and spiritual, and not legal. If the trustees succeeded, any Bishop henceforth would have to in- &nbsp; stitute any clergyman, though the latter might intend to introduce the whole Roman sacramental system. It would end all hope of restoring order &nbsp; in the Church of England. " I will not &...
HUSBAND POISONING. BUDAPEST, December 26. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 2 January 1930
HUSBAND POISONING. BUDAPEST. December 26. The trials of the women from the villages of Tisquakurt and Nagkrev, on charges of husband poisoning, are being continued. In all, 60 women are charged and several have already been found guilty &nbsp; and sentenced. To-day, Esther Takacs and Marie Csabai were placed on trial. Takacs is accused of having poisoned her father-in law in 1922. The alle- &nbsp; gation is that the man was a confirmed drunkard who pursued his wife with undesirable attentions until she ad- ministered large doses of arsenic. Takacs was denounced by means of an anonymous letter. The body of the husband was exhumed and a post mortem examination revealed the pre- sence of arsenic. The case was strengthened by the fact that Takacs was the sole inheritor &nbsp; of the old man's property. Csabai admits that she murdered &nbsp; her husband by means of poison pro- cured from Mrs. Sazekas, who also supplied poison to several of the other prison...

FIERCE CALE LONDON, December 26. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 2 January 1930
FIERCE GALES. LONDON. December 26. &nbsp; Fierce gales on the British coast and over south-eastern Europe played havoc with the shipping. So far, 31 deaths have been reported. &nbsp; Gallant rescues from vessels, in diffi- culties have been effected. There is an unusually long list of Christmas tragedies, half of which have been the outcome of motoring smashes. An unusual accident occurred at Hull where 12 persons were injured through the collapse of a scaffolding at a church overlooking a football ground. The scaffolding gave way under the weight &nbsp; and precipitated the spectators 40 ft. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; to the ground, amid crashing timbers and masonry. The Fleetwood lifeboat on Christmas Day rescued six men from the French steamer Tehad, on a voyage from Bor- deaux to Morecambe. The vessel drifted on Pilling Sands. Rockets proved unavailing and the crew soaked their mattresses with paraffin &nbsp; and burnt them. The ...
FASCIST PRESS ROME, December 27. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 2 January 1930
FASCIST PRESS ROME, December 27. The Pope made an unusually outspok- en attack on the attitude of the Fascist &nbsp; &nbsp; Press, when answering the Christmas greetings of his Cardinals, and hinted broadly at a lack of good faith on the part of the Government. The Pope vigorously and categorically denied that Catholic news and propa- ganda organisations had anything to do with politics and declared ''The Catholic Press of Italy is beaten badly, obviously badly.'' The Pope proceeded to denounce the intention to erect a statue in Rome of Garibaldi which he said ''was contrary to the spirit of the Luteran Pact, which recognises the sacred character of Rome, &nbsp; &nbsp; this Rome which remains always our &nbsp; Rome and diocese.'' The Pope deplored the permission and facilities given to publication which were irreverent and disrespectful to- wards the Holy See and the Pope and indicated that these should be called anti-religious. &nbsp;...
