"A DISGRACE." Packing of Exports. EASTERN COMPLAINT. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 29 August 1933
"A DISGRACE.'' Packing of Exports. EASTERN COMPLAINT. "Grading and packing methods adopted by Australian manufacturers, dealing in dried and tinned fruits, arc a positive disgrace," said Mr. Edward Sassoon, representing the Java America Trading Co., Sourabaya, who has ar- rived in Australia for the purpose of protesting to, and advising, merchants with whom he deals. Mr. Sassoon, who is a passenger on the Marella, mentioned that frequent- ly he had asked Australian packers to supply him with products of certain classification, but they seemed to adopt tile attitude that if they were good enough for Australians they were good enough for the East. Conse- quently the United States was getting a great deal of the business that Aus- tralia would otherwise have enjoyed. Australian canned fruit, he said, was invariably a source of loss to Eastern merchants, as on delivery the syrup from a number of tins had leaked out on to the labels, and very often it ruined whole cases. Although Austral...
SEVERAL GANGS. REPAIRING CITY ROADS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 29 August 1933
SEVERAL GANGS. REPAIRING CITY ROADS. Several gangs were detailed for the carrying out of road repairs, the city engineer (Mr. E. P. Gilchrist) said yesterday, when replying to a sugges- tion that some of the bitumen thor-, oughfares of the city and suburbs were in rather a neglected state. Evidently, said Mr. Gilchrist, refer- ence was being made to roads which had been put down, not as first-class highways, but had merely received a coating of bitumen and gravel. On occasions these became pot-holed after considerable traffic, but all the at- tention that was possible was given to them. The opening of streets for water and gas purposes interfered with the surface, and it was necessary that the material should consolidate before it received a coat of bitumen to re- pair the surface. Several gangs were detailed to repair such roads, and as little inconvenience as was possible was caused to motorists and others.
SALES TAX ACTS. MANY ANOMALIES. REVIEW PROBABLE. CANBERRA, August 28. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 29 August 1933
SALES TAX ACTS. MANY ANOMALIES. REVIEW PROBABLE. CANBERRA, August 28. Officials of the Taxation Depart- ment at Canberra concede that many serious anomalies exist in the sales' tax legislation, and it is likely that the Government will shortly give con- sideration to them. It is claimed that Mr. H. V. C. Thorby, M.H.R., who in the last few days has attacked the Taxation De- partment for its unsympathetic ad- ministration of the Sales Tax Acts, has not produced anything not already known by the department. It is pointed out that the Taxation Department is compelled to adminis- ter the law as it finds it. The Minister for Customs has legal power to suspend the operation of any duty or duties when he is convinced that conditions warrant such action. While similar action could not be taken in regard to the sales tax or any other Commonwealth tax, it would be possible for the Government to bring down legislation, removing the anomalous positions created under the existing law. It is beli...
RIVER'S BEAUTIES. Improvement Schemes. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 29 August 1933
RIVER'S BEAUTIES. Improvement Schemes. Work on the establishment of a river walk or drive from the Grey street, Bridge towards Toowong was being put in hand as the opportunity offered, the city engineer (Mr. E. P. Gilchrist), said yesterday. By this means it was hoped to improve the appearance of the river bank and at the same time make possible a pleas- ing walk for the people of Brisbane. One part of the river to which at- tention was being given was that at the end of Glenny-street, St. Lucia, opposite the Hill End point. It had been shown that at this spot an admir- able view of the river, both up and down stream, was provided, and plans had been prepared for terracing this ground, laying it out with grass lawns, and generally making it a pleasing spot for visitors and others who would thus be able to observe amid pleasant surroundings the broad up-stream stretches.
NOT SUFFICIENT. Grounds for Divorce. DANCING AND CARS. (Australian Cable Service.) LONDON, August 28. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 29 August 1933
NOT SUFFICIENT. Grounds for Divorce. DANCING AND CARS. (Australian Cable Service.) LONDON, August 28. Modern dancing and visits by couples in cars to secluded spots form in- sufficient grounds for divorce. This is the burden of a judgment by Lord Pitman, hi a case in which Mrs. Mary Henderson accused her husband of dancing indelicately, and taking car rides with the co-respondent. Mr. Justice Pitman declared that the de- scription given in the petition seemed to be a fairly accurate account of modern dancing. When a motor car could convey the people to a secluded spot within twenty minutes it was out of the question to condemn all who danced as the respondent did, on the principle that familiarities plus op- portunity inferred misconduct.
Mr. G. A. Bayard. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 29 August 1933
Mr, G. A. Bayard. More than 800 persons, representa- tive of almost every eeetjon of the community, yesterday attended the funeral of Mr, George Arthur Bayard, who died on Saturday afternoon. Ex- tending for neayly two pilles, it was one of the largest funerals seen in Brisbane, and was a, fitting tribute to a man who, py his. upright character and kindly personality, had earned the highest esteem in Church, social, and commercial spheres, The late Mr. Bayard was principal of the South Brisbane drapery firm of Bayards Pty., Ltd. He had been in business in Brisbane for many years, and was particularly popular with the South Brisbane business fraternity, Before the cortege moved off to the South Brisbane Cemetery a service was held in the Wesley Methodist Church, Kangaroo 'Point, "where Mr, Bayard had been an executive officer for 25 years. The services in the church and at the graveside were con- ducted by the Rev. C. Whitehead, assisted by the Rev. R. P- Pope (rep- resenting the Rev...
NO BIG WORKS. RELIEF LABOUR. USE TO CHIP FOOTPATHS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 29 August 1933
NO BIG WORKS. RELIEF LABOUR. USE TO CHIP FOOTPATHS.! One result of the Government's re- fusal to reduce the number of inter- mittent relief workers in the Bris- bane City Council area will be that instead of carrying! out bigger works the majority of the men will be en- gaged on small tasks, such as chip- ping footpaths. The works executive (Aid. E. Lan- ham) said yesterday that at present the council was carrying on with approximately 15,000 relief workers. It had asked instead that the total should be reduced to 7500, including 6000 married men a week, and 1500 single men. A request had also been made that £150,000 should be made available to the council on the same basis as last year: 50 per cent, loan, and 50 per cent, subsidy. These re- quests had been refused, and the Government had intimated that it would give the same assistance as last year, when £121.000 had been received by way of loan and subsidy. This decision, said Aid. Lanham yesterday, would mean that big works would...

MEAT EXPORT. OPENING DELAYED. VICTORIAN DISPUTE. MELBOURNE, August 28. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 29 August 1933
MEAT EXPORT. OPENING DELAYED. VICTORIAN DISPUTE, MELBOURNE, August 28. A further hitch has occurred in the rneat export trade, as the result of which the opening of the Melbourne export season, which was scheduled for to-morrow, has been delayed. The original dispute arose three months ago over the objection of the men to the team system of slaughter- ing. When the men, lost week, de- cided to work under the team system, it was believed that the matter had been settled, but the men now refuse to work at the rates proposed by the employers, 37/6 a hundred for sheep or lambs, compared with 40/G a hun- dred under the solo system last year. Further meetings of the parties aro being held In an effort to arrive at an agreement.

NO DEFLATION. Church's Spirit. -? ST. ANDREW'S ADVANCES. "Economic depressions cannot deflate the spirit of the Church. It ajano, among all the institutions in the world, is entirely Independent of material considerations," said the Rev. Norman Millar last night, at the 71st anniver- sary of St. Andrew's Presbyterian Pharoh. The Church, he said, had abundant cause to rejoice, because of Its pro- fitless in t|ie present time of material and spiritual difficulty. St. Andrew's had maintained Its place as the second largest Presbyterian congregation in the Commonwealth, with on active membership approaching "roo. in loox. the ayerage attendance at the Com- munion services of ßt, Andrew's was 151.

BE GREATER NOW. NEW FARM FLOODING. VALUATION BOARD HEARS EVIDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 29 August 1933
BE GREATER NOW. NEW FARM FLOODING. VALUATION BOARD HEARS EVIDENCE. Every year storms similar to those which caused the 1893 flood passed down the Queensland coast within a few miles of Cape Moreton, but the right set of conditions to bring them to the land did not prevail, said Mr. W. F. Cameron when giving evidence before the Federal Land Valuation Board yesterday. If these storms should be brought inland, he said, the flooding in the New Farm reach of the river would be greater than it was in 1893. The Federal Land Valuation Board, which comprises Messrs. W. J. Lambert (chairman), J. C. E. Thorpe, and C. D. Ferguson is engaged hearing an ap- peal by the Colonial Sugar Refining Co.. Ltd. for a reduction of the Fed- eral land tax assessment for 1930 on the company's property at New Farm, from £7413 to £5395. The Federal Land Tax Department has fixed the unimproved value of the land for 1930 at £54,400, and Mr, Cameron, who valued the property at the request of the company, has value...
