An interesting review of the country north of Mulleka, and .of its possibili ties, was given in an interview yester day by Mr. C. J.

BRITISH POLITICS LIVELY TIMES FOR CANDIDATES RIOTIOUS SCENES AT LABOUR MEETING London, January 9. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 10 January 1929
BRITISH POLITICS LIVELY TIMES FOR CANDI DATES BIOTIOUS SCENES AT LABOUE MEETING London, January 9. A foretaste of what candidates of all parties may expect at the forthcoming election was experienced by Messrs Ar hnr Henderson, John Wheatlcy, and David Kirkwood, Labor members, at a riotous Glasgow meeting. The Communists' shouts of 'Spy,' 'Murderer,' 'Traitor,' greeted Mr. Henderson, whose first words 'If you were in Russia,' were lost in pande monium. Mr Kirkwood removing his spectacles jumped from the platform into the me lee. The police intervened and arrested 17 persons, including Guy Alfred, a notorious Communist, four women and a blind man, whereupon Mr. Hender son shouted 'The Revolution is now over. ' '

MEIROPOLTTAN MEMS — ? ♦ TEST MATCH ENTHUSIASM. (From Our Own Correspondent.} Perth, January 7. Perhaps it is just, as well that the fight for the 'ashes' is over, for bus iness last week-end was being sadly de moralised owing to men in all walks of life being apparently more interested in the latest scores than the work, which their hands or brains were sup posed to do. The story ' teller was abroad on Friday afternoon, and those who, accept test match stories, with out the proverbial pinch of salt, which should go with them, were wonder fully bucked up by a rumour that two of England's batsmen had been dispos ed of for a score of only 15. Later in the afternoon, when authen tic news was circulated to the effect that once again Hobbs and Sutclifie were making a first-wicket stand, the jubilation changed to depression, and this abided until the final result was known the following, day. Now the enthusiasts console themselves with the reflection that adversity has -its uses, and they ...

MIGRATION AGREEMENT AUSTRALIA'S FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITY MR. ANGWIN EXPLAINS CONDITIONS. London, January 9. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 10 January 1929
MIGRATION AGREEMENT AUSTRALIA'S FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITY ME. ANGWIN EXPLAINS CONDI TIONS. London. January 9. Mr. W. 0. Angwin, Agent General for Western Australia, in a letter to the 'Times' with reference to the Eco nomic Mission's suggestions, ssty.s there is a widespread impression in Britain that the Imperial Government is find ing £34,000,000 for the Migration Schemes. Few people seem to under stand that Australia must, find and re pay the money. The last Australian loan floated in London, said Mr. Angwin, for £7,000, 000 principally for migration, met with such a poor public reception that it did not afford Australia much encourage ment for the development of migration.
BE KIND TO PARENTS AN APPEAL TO THE YOUNG. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 10 January 1929
BE KIND TO PARENTS AN APPEAL TO THE YOUNG. At a recent meeting of the Mel bourne Botary Club, the Attorney General (Mr. J. G. Latham,) gave a witty and weighty moral discourse, which might have been styled 'Ad- vice to a Young Man on Leaving SchooL' Addressing his remarks more to the sons than to the fathers, Mr. Latham Baid that parents, when pleading with their sons for kindness and forbear ance, could say, 'We are what you may become, so do not be too hard.' The sons should remember that if they had been born earlier they might have been our fathers. 'We,' said the speaker, 'did not have the advantage our sons iiaa — the advantage or having us for their fathers.' There was a time when a parent was regarded as having wisdom because he lived in the past. But that was the reason why he was considered to know very little nowadays. What father of to-day could assemble a wireless set as well as his son? Life was more .than live lihood, and living something more than merely earning. Suc...

SOCCER FOOTBALL GERMAN INVITATION DECLINED [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 10 January 1929
SOCCER FOOTBALL GERMAN INVITATION DECLINED The London _ 'Daily Express' says that Germany's invitation for a Brit ish football team to visit that country lias been declined because insufficient first class players are available. It is stated that the Foreign Office urged that only fin?t class men should be despatched to the Continent, because it regards it as essential that British prowess should be well maintained. In an editorial, the 'Express'' de scribes this astounding attempt to regulate soccer on the 1914-18 basis as .'the silliest thing imaginable.' In any English town the amount of rubbish dealt with yearly averages 234 tons for each thousand people, or roughly, a ton for each house. Before he can take up his new ap pointment an Archbishop of Canter bury has to pay £850 in fees, of which £117 goes to officials of Canterbury Cathedral.
