Fine Wools Wanted. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 23 April 1925
Fine Wools Wanted. Winchcombe Carson Ltd. report: Fine quality merino fleece wools com manded strong competition at our Sydney sale last Monday.

((Pl?lbhe by arruma?eemt.) MBd Mv.rtiu t for Fhibiti.m The Hon. Alfred J. Talley, Judge of the U.S.A. Court of General Sn-' sions, writing in the New York "Herald," pillories the conditions in U.S.A. nowadays. - "The declaration that we are the most lawless people in civilisation to-day excites but passing notice and no one assumes to deny or dispute it and yet this terrible indictment is accepted almost with complacence, and the average citizen gives no thought to the necessity of doing anything to remedy the situation which threatens our national exist ence. "Liberty and freedom are the twin pillars which support the arch of our republic, yet the criminal stalks the streets of our cities and lurks in the highways of the land fearing neither the vengeance of God nor the retributive justice of man. "On a coaparative estimate there are not fewer than ten thousand murder cases in a year in this coun try." 4
