SCENE OF DESOLATION. Headstones and Graves Damaged by Flood Waters. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 4 June 1925
SCENE OF DESOLATION. ?-4 Headstones and Craves Damaged by Flood Waters. At the Council meeting on Tuesday night, Aid. Freebody said the scene at the local ce meteries baffled description; and as the result of the flood burials could not take place there at present; graves could not be located, and in some in stances they had been washed completely away. It might be necessary to stop further bur ials there. Aid. McCauley said it would be a wise move to call a public meeting of the trustees and others to consider the matter; it might be possible to arrange a working bee to clean the ce meteries up a bit. The Mayor said he could bear out what Aid Freebody had stated, it was most deplor able. He thought the Council should take action to fence the cemetery on Tharwa Road so that interments could be made there. It was the wish of the Federal Authorities that the cemetery near the river should be closed against further inter ments. Aid. E. Land said there were plans of each cemetery, and b...

Aid. Taylor said- :there 'were a number of people in a pitiful plight and all should receive, the same consideratidn. It ,would' bebhard to pick lidt the worst cases, :and might cause a deal of ill-feeling :amongst the people . : Aid.

TELEGRAPHIC NEWS SYDNEY, Thursday. THE ELECTIONS STATE OF PARTIES [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 4 June 1925
TELECRAPHIO NEWS SYDNEY, Thursday. THE ELECTIONS STATE OF PARTIES At the conclusion of count ing the election figures last night the position still indicates that the doubtful seats are: Newcastle, Namoi, Ryde, St, George, and Sydney. St. George will probably de termine the final position of the parties. On the latest figures Labor has forty-three seats, Nation alists thirty, Progressives ten, other parties two. Ministers are of opinion that the worst that can happen is' a deadlock, with 45 seats each; The Premier, Sir Geo. Fuller, is convinced that the Coalition Party will retain seats in St. George, Wollondilly, and Par ramatta. Mr. Lang, the Labor leader, says that there is not the slight est doubt that Labor will have a majority of two in the new Parliament. There is talk in Ministerial and Labor circles of a reversion to sipgle electorates.
THE PROBLEM OF WEIGHING MOTOR LORRIES. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 4 June 1925
THE PROBLEM OF WEIGH. ING MOTOR LORRIES. All the products of the State as well as our imports arc weighed at some period over weighbridges; therefore infor mation about these large weighing instruments is of in terest not only to engineering authorities, but also to every, progressive business man, A great number of the weigh. bridges in use in New South Wales were designed and in stalled long before motor trac tion was invented, and it is not generally realised that these old weighbridges, originally designed for weighing horse vehicles with an evenly dis tributed load, are quite unsuit able for motor lorry traffic. The majority of these weigh bridges are too short to accom modate motor lorries, and a general, but quite erroneous idea, has sprung up that it is possible to weigh such vehicles accurately by the expedient of weighing the front wheels and then weighing the rear wheels and accepting the added weighments as correct. The matter of ascertaining the weight of long vehicles ...

(Published by arrangement.) "COMIC AND HIDEOUS." [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 4 June 1925
(PubUshed by arrangement.) "COMIC AND HIDEOUS." ~-4--- More and more unpleasant grows the atmosphere sur rounding the Prohibition Act, says the New York "Times." Its inequality and hypocrisy are illustrated only in part by its erection of the farmers into a privileged class, "making their own" undisturbed, and laughing at dwellers in cities and industrial communities The distinction between intoxi cation in law and intoxication in fact is edifying; but we have to remember that, primarily, a prohibitionist is a prohibition ist of other people's drink, not necessarily his own. Hypocrisy is so common in politics, that perhaps the larger dose to which so many politic ians have treated themselves and the country in regard to prohibition ought not to excite cur special disgust. We have also the glorious exploits of the informers to admire. Apparently there is no false hood or calumny too atrocious to be put into circulation, no perjury too gross to be com mitted, by some members of the si...
IS IT YOUR KIDNEYS? [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 4 June 1925
• IS IT YOUR KIDNEYS ? Many people never suspect their kidneys. If suffering from, a lame, weak, or aching back, they think that it is only a muscular weakness; when urinary trouble sets in they think it will soon correct itself. And so it is with all the other symptoms of kidney disorder. That is where the.danger often lies. You should realise that these troubles often lead to serious kidney disease. An effective remedy for weak or diseased kidneys is Doan's Backache Kidney Pills. Read this experience: Mrs. N. Stuart, Crawford Street, Queanbeyan, says: "For some time I was a martyr to kidney trouble, the symptoms being pains in the back, dizzy attacks and bad head aches. My back was very painful, and I could hardly get about, as every movement added to my suf fering.' My rest at night .was bro ken, and I used to get up in the morning almost as tired as when I went to bed. One day I happened to hear that Doan's Backache Kid ney Pills were' a splendid kidney remedy, and, I decided to...

DISCOVERING AUSTRALIA. Captain Cook of Industry. Millions in Manufactures. 1. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 4 June 1925
DISCOVERING -AUSTRALIA. Captain Cook of Industry. Millions in Manufactures. (By Stanley Kingsbury.) 1. Imagine a gigantic capitalist stepping into . the Common wealth to-morow and anncunc ing: "I will buy your raw ia terial up to £190,000,000 a year." - The primary producer wc.uld hail the appearing of a gol'cu age. Yet such an announcement would be the privilege of the Australian manufacturer. In 1922-23, the latest year for which official records are avail able, he paid £186,082,663 for raw material, mostly Austra lian. Moreover, he paid in salaries and wages in the. same year £71,133,152 of which more than £27,000,000 was distri buted in this State. It stands to the credit of New South Wales that its average wage in industry was the highest in the Commonwealth, excepting that in Western Australia, a negligible State in manufac tures. Until very recently the man ufacturer was the unconscious victim of the vice which grip ped Australia before the war -the evil of unnatural seif dep...
