(Published by arrangement.) AFTER FIVE YEARS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 9 April 1925

(Published by arrangement.) AFTER FIVE YEARS. Despite arguments from a body of Prohibitionists, Dr. Nicholas Murray Butler, "The well-known and greatly respected President of Columbia Uni versity," as he was broadcasted re cently through the United States and British press, reiterates earlier char ges against the disastrous effects of the Prihibition laws in the United Statse. This is Dr. Butler's indictment: "As a result of the Prohibition law. we now have a nation-wide traffic in intoxicating liquors which is unli censed, illicit, illegal and untaxed. We have introduced intoxicating liquor into parts of the country from which it had well nigh disappeared. We have brought about a situation in which we challenge the ingenuity and sporting instincts .of millions of young people to test whether or not they can safely violate a law for which they have no respect. We have invited and induced a spirit and a habit of lawlessness which are quite without precedent, and which reach from the ...

Queanbeyan Races. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 9 April 1925

Qieanbeyan Races. Yesterday a race meeting was held on the local racecourse under the aus pices of the A.R.C. for the purpose of augmenting the funds of the local hospital and also the funds for -im provements which it is proposed to make on the racecourse grounds. The day had heen proclaimed a public holiday, as no addition to the usual Wednesday half-holiday, the weather was glorious, and the Racing Club had received a good list of nomina tions for every event on the pro gramme, and therefore. a large at tendance of the public was anticipated. and even more especially was this so on account of the numerous complaints made by townsmen regarding raeion being held locally on Saturdays, and thus considerably interfering with business by attracting the public to the racecourse, and also debaring both emplyoer and employee from wit nessing the racing. Well. notwith standing the Wednesday holiday, and the other very favourable conditions for an afternoon's outing, the attend ance of the ...

Cricket WESTRIDGE DEFEATS HOSTEL BY NINE RUNS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 9 April 1925

Cricket WESTRIDGE DEFEATS HOSTEL   BY NINE RUNS. By defeating Hostel in their de terred competition match on April 5th, Westridge have put themselves a in a position where they are practi cally unbeatable in the Douglas Cup   competition, with a lead of 6 points over Hall, their nearest rivals who have yet two matches to play and who will have to obtain two out right wins to be, equal with the leaders. As Hall's engagements in clude Westridge at Hall, and Can berra at Canberra, their chances of securing a three point victory in each case are very slight. Seeing that the Westridge Club are now practically premiers for the 1924-25 season. cricket enthusiasts out there are won dering what is wrong with an Asso ciation Selection Committee that can overlook all the playing members of the leading club in their own Asso ciation when selecting a team to re present their Association. Still this has been done on two occasions dur ing the season, viz., against Yass As...

A Word of Warning [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 16 April 1925

A Word of Warning That drinking in the street is an offence is not generally known, or if it is, like other laws is flagrantly disregarded. Beer-drinking out of bottles is carried out to a. large ex tent in Queanbeyan, and sonje lads make good money gathering up the empties which are strewn about the highways and byways of the town. Those who indulge in the bottle habit are given a caution. At the Police Court on Monday last, Sergeant Clarke said that he had instructed the police to take action against any persons they found drinking beer from bottles in the street, and charge them with offensive behaviour.

(Published by arrangement.) Danger Ahead [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 16 April 1925

(Published by arrangement.) Danger Ahead -4----- "It is a danger to society, un doubtedly," says "Judge" (New York) in a leading article on the Prohibition law. "Why do wealthy intelligent men," asks "Judge," "put the blame for the present conditions on those who violate the law and not on the law itself?" "Because," continues the article, "these men were instrumental in putting national prohibition over. They are, many of them, great in dustrialists, with mills and mines employing vast armies of labor. scat tered from one end of the continent to the other. They knew that na tional prohibition, whatever its fate among the upper third of Americans, would put labor on the water wag gon. And it has, largely. "Yet some day they will have to choose between the. two-between order and security with personal liberty, and lawlessness and , inse curity with prohibition.
