The Geraldton Guardian & Express FRIDAY, JANUARY 11, 1929 COMMUNISM AND INDUSTRIAL PEACE. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 11 January 1929
%\%£ -&erulbUm (Suarftimt & (£xpre&0 FRIDAY, JANUARY 11, 1929 COMMUNISM ANi» INDUSTEIAL PEACE. Nobody . will be surprised that the ! eighth annual conference of the Com- I munist Party of Australia has express ed, in characteristically pungent terms, its disapproval of the Peace ia^Indus try movement and the Indus^il^Peaee Conference. The latter was described by one of the leaders of the movement as 'a stage-managed affair, designing to trap the workers' leaders into co operating with the employers to reduce the standard of living of the workers.' Since the avowed object of the Com munist Party is to break up the exist ing 'capitalist' system, it must be obvious to everyone that peaco in in dustry is the very last thing its lead ers desire to sec. Only by fostering class consciousnes and preaching class war can those apostles of revolution hope to attain the ends which they quite candidly seek.

RINGING THE CHANGES HOW BACKERS WERE DECEIVED [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 11 January 1929
RINGING THE CHANGES HOW BACKERS WEBE DECEIVED A new dodge was sprung on the un suspecting public at a trotting meeting recently held near Bendigo. That it was an nnregistered fixture, with 'go- as-you-please' supervision, goes with out saying, for the raee was a posten try event. The names of the horses were aispiayiM upon a wiacniwuru pnuc to the race. The swindle was vorket this wbc: Blavk Bird, figuring as No. 1, Bessie, as No. '2, both nominated or ►paid for by the same individual, the nominator getting the saddle cloths, No. 1 and 2, from the official in charge. A large number of the public, not knowing the horses, but taking note of saddle-cloths when the horses were do ing preliminaries, fancied the chances *-f the horse carrying No. 2, and, re sie, consequently they went baldheadcd for her. Bessie, it might be mention ed, was on scratch, as were all other horses excepting Black Bird, who was 75 yards behind -scratch. Judge to the astonishment of backers when they saw their, ...
DOUBLE CROPS YEARLY RESULTS FROM MULCH OF LEAVES [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 11 January 1929
DOUBLE CROPS YEARLY - ? — ? . BESULTS FROM MULCH OF LEAVES An American farmer has produced two berry crops from the saute vines in one year. He has done this now every year' since 1916. Interested in recent publicity in the New York 'Times' on the remarkable results from the use of paper mulch, Mr. A. E. Davis, Scarsdale (Victoria) gave an account of his experiences with a deep mulch of leaves around his berry vines. The results were remarkable, especially regarding blackberries. He writes: — 'In the fall of 1915 a mulch of leaves 6 to 10 inches deep, well pressed down, was placed about the plants. In 1916 a double crop of blackberries was produced. Thinking perhaps this result might have been due to a freak season, little attention was paid to it. However, in every consecutive season up to and including 1928 a double crop of blackberries has been produced — the ordinary varieties, which bear but one crop of berries a season in ordinary circumstances. Although the second crop is not...

BUSHRANGING DAYS LINK WITH THE PAST BROKEN [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 11 January 1929
BUSHRANGING DAYS LINK WITH THE PAST BROKEN Mr. William Thom, a resident of the Gisborne district of Victoria since 1860, and one of the last links with the days of the noted bushranger, Harry Power, died at Gisborne towards the end of last month, at the age of 77 years. He was a fearless horseman, a noted rifle shot, and was skilled in all sorts of bush craft. When the Pyrete and Blackwood ranges, and what is now the Wombat State forest, reaching to Day- lesford, formerly Jim Crow, teemed with wild cattle, which were a menace to settlers, Mr. Thom's services were availed of to get rid of them, in con- sequence of his reputation as a bushman and unerring shot. When Power, the bushranger, was out, and a terror to the country, the late Mr. Nicholson, Inspect- ing Superintendent of Police, in the days when Captain F. C. Standish was Chief Commissioner, engaged Mr. Thom to search the ranges for Power, and so much did he admire Thom 's courage and qualities as a bushman that he offered hi...
