"MUSEUM PIECES." TELEPHONE SYSTEM. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 29 August 1933

'MUSEUM PIECES." TELEPHONE SYSTEM. The "barrel-organ" telephone, which is almost a rarity in Queensland, is still common enough in England. But the British Post Office officials have at last decided to abolish all examples of this "antediluvian" instrument, says the "Morning Post," London. This museum piece of the telephone system is known to post office en- gineers as the "magneto" type. It is distinguished from all modern tele- phones by having a handle which must be turned rapidly by the person who wants to use the telephone and must first draw the attention of the ex- change. The exchange operator, in turn, has to turn another handle to call the person or exchange to which he is transferring the call. This furious rotation of handles is not only physically exhausting to tele- phonists and exchange operators, who are at it all day; it also wastes a great deal of time. Although it was the first important system introduced in Great Bl itain, and so was at one time universal in go-a...

FOUND FLOATING. LARGE MALE DUGONG. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 29 August 1933

FOUND' FLOATING. LARGE MALE DUGONG. A large male dugong, weighing about 5cwt., was found floating off Lota yes- terday by Mr. A. P. Cross. Marks on its back suggested that it had recently fought another fish, and it must have expired just before it was discovered. It was 8ft. long and approximately 5ft. 6in. in girth. After being towed by a motor boat across the bay to Wynnum Creek it was hauled on to the landing stage nt the Moreton Ice and Cold Storage works by li- men. Mr. W. R. Howard purchased the carcase to . convert it into valuable oils.

LOAN OF £55,000. OFFER TO COUNCIL. ELECTRICITY WORKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 29 August 1933

LOAN OF £55,000. OFFER TO COUNCIL. ELECTRICITY WORKS. Tile offer of a loan of £55,003 for new electricity works was a further evidence of the soundness of the Bris- bane City Council's finances, the Loi'! Mayor (Alderman J. W. Greene) stated yesterday. The loan, which is on offer to the council through Messrs. J. B. Were, of Melbourne, is for new electricity works, and its acceptance has been recommended by the city executive. The interest (4 per cent.), said the Lord Mayor, represented the best rate obtained since the new council carne into being, excepting Commonwealth and State loans at 3 per'cent., walch had been borrowed for special unem- ployment relief. The loan was the best yet raised for the council on the public market. On the whole, he thought it was an admirable piece of business to raise the sum at 4 per cent,, which would return in revenue £19,250. The increase in loan indebt- edness was to provide additional capital for a concern that was at present doing a profitable...

MOTOR DRIVERS. Compulsory Insurance. SYSTEM IN ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 29 August 1933

MOTOR DRIVERS. Compulsory Insurance. SYSTEM IN ENGLAND. Mr. T. H. Bishop (motor assessor in Queensland for Lloyds Underwriters) is in favour of compulsory motor in- surance. In a statement yesterday on the subject Mr. Bishop said: "In Eng- land, in spite of the traditional re- pugnance of John Bull to compulsion, no motor vehicle is allowed on any thoroughfare without insurance. See- ing that no opposition to this pro- posal becoming law was expressed by either the Royal Automobile Club or the Automobile Association, the two most powerful and representative motoring associations in the world, there can be little, if any, reasonable objection." The way in which the insurance is watched by the British Transport Authority is shown by the action taken when it came under notice a little while ago that a claim was Invalid if the licence of the driver had expired. As a result of the refusal of the authorities from that date to accept a policy with this clause all of the insurance organisat...

WOMEN "BLACK-LEGS." CHILD ENDOWMENT AS REMEDY. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 29 August 1933

WOMEN "BLACK-LEGS." CHILD ENDOWMENT AS REMEDY. "In respect of low wages, women and girls, as Sir Philip Gibbs points out, are 'black-legs,' but made so by the differential rates awarded by our Arbi- tration Courts," said Mrs. irene Long- man, president of the Queensland Citizenship League, when opening a discussion on equal pay for equal work at the monthly meeting, at which she presided. The question of equal pay was largely complicated by the principle on which the basic wage was assessed, she continued. The number of single men and those without families who had not saved on the basic wage, and had nothing to fall back upon when unemployment came, showed the fallacy of the present system. A sensible form of child endowment was the only remedy. Then the basic wage for women could be made the same as that for men.

FEDERAL BUDGET. Ready Next Week. "INNER CABINET" MAKES PROGRESS. CANBERRA, August 28. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 29 August 1933

FEDERAL BUDGET. Ready Next Week. -* "INNER CABINET" MAKES PROGRESS. CANBERRA, August 28. It is not now expected that the pre sessional Cabinet meetings will last more than 10 days, owing to the dis- cussion that took place at Canberra to-day between the Prime Minister (Mr. J. A. Lyons), the Attorney General (Mr. J. G. Latham), and the Assistant Treasurer (Sir Walter M. Greene). The "Inner Cabinet" covered many aspects of the Budget, and, it is understood, cleared up many points that in the ordinary way would have had to be thrashed out by a full meet- ing of Ministers. Tlie Cabinet, which meets on Thurs- day next, will sit on Friday, then ad- journing to the following Monday. By the end of next week the Budget will be completed in all detaiú and sent to the Government Printer for prepara- tion. Mr. Lyons said to-nlçht that the Government would present the Budget to the House as soon as Parliament met, on September 27. The Senate will not meet until early in October.

POLICE METHODS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 29 August 1933

POLICE METHODS. Mr. H, P. Talty, secretary of the Queensland Police Union, deems it essential, in the public interest that he should tell the people of Brisbane that a gang of criminals working intelligently could ransack the city within few hours. But it is not Mr. Talty's object to blame the police. All he is doing is to point out that methods which served to protect tlie citizens when Brisbane was a small town are inadequate to-day, and that those methods need ad- justment to modern conditions. A wireless patrol waggon is needed, and motor cars and special tele- phones ; but, particularly, more men are needed. It is stated that of the 16 police in the Traffic Office only three are available for traffic work proper, If there are not enough police traps it is because there are not enough men to set them. If that be so the position is without doubt very unsatisfactory. The criminal nowadays uses every invention that he can use, and if the police are to cope with him. then they, too,...

Emus a La Russe. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 29 August 1933

Emus a La Russe. - There is food for thought in the suggestion attributed to the super- intendent of the Moscow Zoo that emus should be imported into Russia for the purpose of provid- ing the Soviet proletariat with "succulent and savoury meat." One takes leave to doubt, however, whether the idea will produce any more substantial food. Counting his eggs, even before they have been laid, the learned professor calculates that each female, with the help of incubators, would be capable of raising 15 young annually, and in his prophetic vision 1000 pairs of birds imported from Australia would become 'he progenitors of a vast feathered race to roam the South Russian steppes. A wonderful new sport is promised for the Russian Cos- sacks. One can be sure that their interests as farmers and husband- men, having crops and pastures to guard, would increase their zest in pursuing it. Professor Manneuffel is credited with the further ingeni- ous suggestion that some of his acclimatised emus might...

QUEENSLAND TOO. Customs Retirements. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 29 August 1933

QUEENSLAND TOO. Customs Retirements. Although it has been suggested in a message from Canberra that the Customs stalf at Brisbane should re- main undisturbed while other Aus- tralian ports may lose valuable offi- cers through retirements in the next decade, it was stated yesterday that Queensland will also lose a number ot its prominent ollicers. Tlie Collector of Customs (Mr. R. B. Curd) is at present on sick leave, but in the ordinary course he would be retired in 'about three years' time on attaining the age limit in the Public Service. Recently two valuable officers at Brisbane relinquished their association with the department. Mr. C. H. Smith, the chief officer in the excise department, retired a few weeks ago, and another prominent officer Mr. P. W. Woodroffe, who was in charge of the bonded warehouse-was farewelled by his staff. Even if officers to replace these three gentle- men are taken from the Southern States, it was pointed out, replace- ments would have to be made the...

DISPUTE ABOUT LOAN. Innisfail Electricity, INNISFAIL, August T.8. At a meeting of the Shire Council | to-day the question of holding up the i proposed electric light loan of £6000 arose when Councillor Crowley asked I for leavo to withdraw the item on the | agenda dealing with the matter. An amendment was moved that the I Public Works Department should be| asked to approve the plans and sped, fications so that work might be pro- ceeded with. "The amendment was de- feated and the motion was lost on the I casting vote of the chairman. One | member did not vote. The clerk of the South Johnstone Shire Council (Mr. J. B. Perrier) sent a telegram to-day to the Minister for Works (Mr. H. A. Bruce) stating that the chairmen of the Cardwell and South Johnstone shires were of opinion that an Order in Council should be granted to both shires to enablo them to obtain expert opinion on the Joint electrification scheme. A conference was being arranged between the councils. The telegram asked Mr. ...
