OIL SECTION RISING. London Markets. EXCHANGE QUESTIONS PROMINENT. (Australian Cable Service.) LONDON, August 26. The markets continue remark- ably firm, resisting bouts of profit taking-. There Is evidence that much of the recent buying has come from genuine investors, and not from professional operators desiring quick profits. The latest section to participate in ' the rise in prices is oil, and the pos- ' slbility that the higher American ' prices under the new code will pro- duce similar increases in Europe. Exchange questions are again prom- inent, after a short period of stabil- ity, due to the appreciation of the dollar during July and at the begin- ning of August. The British hoped that this movement would continue, ! owing to the normal seasonal Influ- ences, thus satisfying the Dominions of the anti-stability faction within the Government. However, the dollar's seasonal strength is becoming under- mined by a revival of inflationary rumours, and a 30 per cent, devalua- tion ...

PASSING PAGEANT. A Newspaper Sketch. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 28 August 1933
PASSING PAGEANT, A Newspaper Sketch. By R, R. PERRY. Trembling in the dressing room I wait, eager to slip out into the golden light of day, to take my part in the play that knows neither beginning nor end. I am the daughter of Truth and Courage-a thing of sunshine and shadows, of laughter and tears. My part is to carry on the play, to speak the lines of my two proud predecessors, who lived their day, touched lofty heights, and united in producing me. Many men shall prepare the lines I speak. A strange lot are these. . . . Thoy have lit their pipe« in tha morning calm That follows the midnight «treas. They have sold their hearts to ths eld black art They call the morning Press! Some of my lines may be grave and others gay The blooming daughter throws her needle by, And reads her schoolmate's marriage with a sigh; While the grave mother puts her glasses on And sheds a tear for some old crony gone. The preacher, too, his Sunday theme laya down To know what last new folly fills the town...
MOST UNUSUAL. ATTACK BY KANGAROO. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 28 August 1933
MOST UNUSUAL. ATTACK BY KANGAROO. Although they could recall many in- stances of hunted kangaroos turning on their pursuers, authorities in Bris- bane were surprised at a message from Perth stating that a farmer had been attacked by a six-foot marsupial. Unless the kangaroo was one that had been kept in captivity, the case was indeed unusual, said Mr. J. P. Peterson, a leading pastoralist. During a long experience of kangaroo hunting he had often seen animals, when cornered, turn and seek to grasp their pursuers, whether men or dogs, and tear them with their hind paws. Many dogs had been killed in such a man- ner, but he could recall no instance of a man having been seriously in- jured. Usually the kangaroo was more or less exhausted, and his grasp could be easily avoided.

DARING THIEVES. PRIVATE HOMES ROBBED. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 28 August 1933
DARING THIEVES. PRIVATE HOMES ROBBED. While the occupants were absent on Saturday afternoon, thieves entered the home of Miss Thelma Smith, in Oriel Road, Ascot, and stole a clock, several articles of jewellery, clothing, &nbsp; &nbsp; and cash, of a total value of about £13. It Is thought that the intruders, who entered through a bathroom win- dow, became alarmed, because they decamped without taking other valu- able jewellery lying exposed in various parts of the house. &nbsp; An intruder who entered the resi- &nbsp; dence of Mr. A. Broadbent, at the corner of Oxlade Drive and Turner Avenue, New Farm, displayed much daring. Early yesterday morning Mrs. Broadbent thought that she heard somebody moving about her room. She awakened her husband, and told him of her fears, but as the sounds were not repeated, the matter was for- gotten. Later in the day, however, it was discovered that a wristlet watch, jewellery, and cash, of a total value of about £12,...
NOT FOR BRISBANE. Lord Mayor's Show. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 28 August 1933
NOT FOR BRISBANE. Lord Mayor's Show. Tile suggestion of. Mr. Edmund Jowett that Melbourne should follow the example of London in holding a Lord Mayor's show each year is sup- ported by some of Melbourne's leading citizens, but the idea of introducing such pageantry to Queensland does not appeal to the Lord Mayor of Bns- I bane (Alderman J. W. Greene). "The public of Queensland, I think, would regard a local Lord Mayor's show with a certain amount of cynic- ism," he said yesterday. A Lord Mayor's show, however, could be made very interesting and colourful, and, perhaps, it would be a "little amusing. To that extent it recommended itself . Melbourne's centenary celebrations next year would offer a suitable op- | portunity for an experiment in stag- ing a Lord Mayor's show, but he would not favour Brisbane's following the example of Melbourne. "Do you think that Queensland Is not developed sufficiently to warranta Lord Mayor's show?" Alderman Greene was asked. "Perhaps, I believe that,...

PERPETUAL LEASE INTEREST. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER-MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 28 August 1933
PERPETUAL LEASE INTEREST. TO THE EDITOR OP THE COURIER-MAIL. Sir,-I notice that the. Brisbane Municipal Council has reduced its in- terest on overdue rates from 7 to 5 per cent. The Lands Department still charges 10 per cent, interest on over- due perpetual- lease payments. I I would again , ask, through your columns, the question whether it is fair on the part of the Government to charge the exorbitant 10 per cent, rate on overdue payments in connec- tion with perpetual leases. It is within my knowledge that there are several holders of perpetual leases I who are struggling to pay their way; I and I consider action should be taken i by the Government to reduce the 10 I per cent, interest to 5 per cent, on I am, sir, &c" "PERPETUAL LEASES." Brisbane, August 24.
NOT A TIDY CITY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER-MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 28 August 1933
NOT A TIDY CITY. Sir,-As a Southern visitor to your city, I read lia the dally journals quite a lot about beautifying it; if the City Council would turn its attention to cleaning it, then beauty would be at least begun. Brisbane is finely and beautifully situated, naturally; and I hav3 been residing during the past few months on what I noticed in a paper this week has been termed the "Press circle of Brisbane." It is true that the fine St. Paul's Terrace Justifies the appellation from its position, commanding magnificent and extensive views of mountain ranges, and bay, with a cool and healthy atmosphere at all seasons,, and convenient to railway stations, places of business, and also entertainments. Bui how deplorably dirty and unkept the fine thoroughfare is in the vicin- ity of the large public school, and, more particularly, around the school shops where scholars dally strew large quantities of food, refuse, and torn papers, which are blown hither and thither by the wind. Then th...
THE MENACE TO AUSTRALIA. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER-MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 28 August 1933
THE MENACE TO AUSTRALIA. TO THE EDITOR OP THE COURIER-MAIL. Sir.-The discussion concerning the futility'of party politics and the inepti- tude of our politicians '(the latter de- fect being a' product of the former) will lead nowhere whilst the subject of suffrage is allowed to remain on its present adult basis. When the fate of this country is being determined not in Australia but outside of it, how is it possible to present a case acceptable' 1 to the majority of the adults, having , as its object our economic recovery and I the wherewithal to defend ourselves? Of what account are our Arbitration Courts with their fixation of wages and conditions, and our tariff authori- ties with their attempts to exclude competition in our industries by the imposition of high duties and our ex- change manipulations imposed to place an export bounty on our primary pro- ductions and a further protection to our industries when Japan can flood our markets with her products and is actu- ally doing so...

ANNERLEY d.W.E.L. Mrs. R. E. Dargen, hon. secretary of the Annerley and South Brisbane branches of the Q.W.E.L, advises that the annual meeting of that branch had no association with the Country National Party, as was inferred in a report in the "Courier" on Saturday.
