MR. A. M. BLAIN [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 5 July 1947
MR. A. M. BLAIN — :o: — We have just received from Mr. Blain some cuttings from Hansard, and thank him for them. Pre sumably they were sent to show what is being done on our behalf. Reading carefully we come to the following conclusions : 1. As an Independant we agree that Party Government is bad. 2. We are pleased to see that he ia speaking up for the Tennant Creek miners, but does he forget that they are being robbed on the price of gold. When lias he ever made any remarks about this and why not ? Why has he not men tioned about the price of mica ? y. Is he a Northern Territory Member or a Queensland bar racker ? A lot of his speeches are of Queensland troubles and the bores he put down on his pro perty at Kingaroy, Queensland. 4. He is worried about the buffalo shooters, those small men (one has on offer an area of 10,000 square miles (only 0,400,000 acres poor chap). 5. He is worried because the station people's pockets are now filled with cash, he wants those lands taken away a...

TOPAZ [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 5 July 1947
TOPAZ It is not' generally known that where granite grows, and we have plenty in Centralia, the hills are full of it, and the Creator when arranging1 the making of those hills had plenty left over (they are everywhere). Well amongst those are often found the topaz. It is generally a milky looking piece of round waterworn small quartz, but unimpressive as it may look in its wild state, it makes the most glorious brilliant, equally as lus trous as a diamond, and one that none but a jeweller can separate. It has a wonderful effect when dis played on a pretty girl. Just a whisper- boys 'They don't cost much. They were bragging about their home towns. 'I,' said one, proud ly, 'came from Glasgow.' 'I envy you,' asserted the Edin burgh, man. 'Indeed ?' 'Yes. I'm just going there.' '

FOOTBALL MATCH A.W.C. v. Halfcaste Boys [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 5 July 1947
FOOTBALL MATCH A.W.C. v. Halfcsiste Boys The ball was bounced at twenty minutes past three, and from then on it was a battle for both teams, and very fast. The umpire gave a grand display for a job which is a hard .one and he does not deserve the criticism when he gets from spectators. The goalsneak for the A.W.C. did a magnificent job in trying to stop the opposing team to get a lead. S. Jenkins (goalsneak) and W. Jones played a good game. H. Peckham. and M. Goodhall, who played for the halfcaste team, played one of the best games on the field as yet seen in Alice Springs. Goalkickers were : — Halfcastes — H. Peckham 5; A.W.C— G. Owen The final scores were : — Half- caste Boys — 7 goals 12 points ; A.W.C. — 5 goals 5 points.
LAND OFFICE [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 5 July 1947
LAND OFFICE — :o: — / It seems a pity that our Land ~j£-fnee was shifted to Darwin. ^Vlice is the head of the line and riaUu-ally people want to know what is available for settlement, what the conditions are, and when selected do their business here without the necessity of having that long delay in sending appli cations to Darwin, perhaps having them returned for trivial purposes. We have in Mr. Clough and Mr. Warton two very courteous officials who are prepared to give all the information they possibly can, and this paper has at many times put them to considerable inconven ience in asking for all sorts of in formation that . it would like to pass on to the public. It is surprising what different enquiries come in. We are sup posed to bo a public encyclopedia. We do our best, but if a mistake is made, then it is misinformation once more, Both the officials mentioned are quite capable of handling these matters if the Administrator will allow. It would be a relief to all in the south...

TENNANT CHEEK NEWS [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 5 July 1947
TENNANT CREEK NEWS News from Tennant Creek . this week was seven closely typed sheets of foolscap plus a further sheet with more news. It is im possible to print news of this length and it should have been sent direct to The Hon. Mr. Nelson Lenimon. Cutting it short — it' ap pears that Mr. Lemon did not give notice of his arrival, but Tennant finding out, met Mr. Lenimon and he gave them 20 minutes. Tennant has, at a large meeting, decided that the Housing and Works Department has fallen down on its job and its inefficiency has seTious results for Tennant Creek. They consider that cen tralisation at Darwin and Alice | Springs is .primary cost of delay. They consider that Housing is re sponsible for maintenance of Com monwealth buildings and that it is too slowly done and give many instances how this has been de layed. They claim that the urgent needs of Tennant Creek are being overlooked and ask why. It is stated that with the unexploited wealth coming from Tennant much more should ...
