SEWER WORKERS TROUBLE SETTLED Men's Claims Granted Peace reigns once more throughout the sewerage working of the commis- sion the sewer workers having returned to duty on Tuesday last The trouble which broke out last Friday was swept away by the an- nouncement to the Industrial Tribunal that the men's claims had been granted.     The tribunal decided that where men     engaged in sewer reticulation work were   working on a trench ot more than eight feet in depth, the hours to be worked should be 44 hours a week.

ABORIGINES. Near Water Supply PROBLEM AT YASS YASS, Wednesday. [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 24 September 1926

ABORIGINES. Near Water Supply PROBLEM AT YASS YASS, Wednesday. The Yass Municipal Council is ex- periencing trouble in the matter of removing the local Aborigines from the vicinity of the Water Supply Reservoir. Some time ago the Board of Health no- tified the council that the people in question would have to be removed ow- ing to sanitary reasons, and although various alternate sites have been sug- gested, the Aborigines Board has re- ported against them on the grounds of being unsuitable. The Board is at present negotiating with a private owner for a block of land, but, so far, nothing definite has been achieved, and should this fall through, the position will be acute, as the water works will soon be completed and the aborigines refuse to be trans- fured from Yass to any other Mission.

TAEMAS BRIDGE To be Rebuilt SITE DECIDED ON YASS, Wednesday. [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 24 September 1926

TAEMAS BRIDGE To be Rebuilt SITE DECIDED ON YASS, Wednesday. Since the Taemas Bridge was destroy- ed by the big flood of last year, depu- tations comprising residents on the other side of the Murrumbidgee River have urged the authorities to proceed with the building of a new bridge without delay. One section favours the old site, whilst another prefers a site a few miles up stream. However, at the last deputation, both factions agreed to abide by the decision of the Minister for Works, and there is a likelihood of the upper site being chosen on the score of economy and less damage by floods.

THE WHIPPET New Light Car ADVANCE IN DESIGN [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 24 September 1926

THE WHIPPET New Light Car ADVANCE IN DESIGN Considerable discussion has ensued of late regarding the type of car which present day demands make es- sential in the solution of the traffic problem and the problem of the cost of motoring. The opinions, have been quoted of a number of the best known motoring people in the world, includ- ing Sir William Letts who is the Pres- ident of the Motor Manufacturers As- sociation of Great Britain. It has been   indicated that the ideal light car would be one which would combine certain desirable features which belong to the European and English type of car with those qualities of high efficiency in performance and extreme ruggedncss which have made American cars so tremendously popular all over the world. The Overland Whippet taking the place of the four cyclinder Overland car which has been favourably known upon the Australian market for sev- eral years embodies these features. It is not a re-desrgned car in any re- spect. The Over...

New Variety Star [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 24 September 1926

New Variety Star An operatic star who refused £1,500 for a week's engagement in variety 12 years ago, has been singing at the Colioseum Music Hall (London), one of' the Stoll chain of halls. This re- fers to Madame Emmy Destinn, whose "capture" Sir Oswald Stoll naturally   regards as one of the greatest in mus- ís hall history.   A native of Prague, Emmy Destinn   was for many years from 1904 to 1919 - one of the most prominent stars engaged by the Grand Opera Syndicate at Covent Garden. She was a   magnificent Aida, and her Tosca, Mad- ame Butterfly are unforgettable. Dur- ing the war she underwent severe pri- vations, and was interned by the Aus- trians on her own estates. Destinn has received the largest salary ever paid to a singer - £2,000 for a single aria from "Mignon."     This was in 1913 when she entered a cage of lions in a Continental men- agerie, and "mesmerised" the animals with her voice. She was playing the leading ...
