RENMARK WAR ON SLY GROG Hotel Pays Profits To Township EXPERIMENT DISAPPOINTS CRITICS [Newspaper Article] — News — 28 July 1923
REMA~RK WAR~ ON SLY GROG Hotel Pays Profits To Township EXPERIMENT DISAPPOINTS CRITICS 'They tell me, Pike, that you're going to put up some money to help build this Renmark Hotel. Take my advice, don't. labbits will be running through the place in a year or two." Not very encouraging, was it? Hotelsl generally pay their way, and the in-j vestor gets good interest on his money. But this was not to be a privately owned hotel. It was to be the property of the ratepayers in the town and irri gation settlement, and the profits, if there were any, were to be spent on improvements to the town. Everybody agreed it was a splendid idea. "But it cannot pay," said the pessimists. "It has never been done before, and it will not last here." But Mr. Pike could not see it that way. The weather in the summer was hot, the people would want a drink, the hotel was the only place in the district where liquor would be served, there was sure to be a profit. That is how he argued. And. further, it was an ...

WHAT OF OUR NAVY? Empire Co-operation Sought COMPROMISE PROBABLE [Newspaper Article] — News — 28 July 1923
WHAT OF OUR NAVY? Empire Co-operation Sought COMPROMISE PROBABLE When the Imperial conference of the Navy League meets, there is reason for believing that there will be no effort made in England to elimi nate the Dominion naval squad rons, for the reason that there is a desire to establish sea-sense in all parts of the EmDire equally, and because of the desire to work more closely with the Dominions. While it is thougnt trat the naval defence of the Empire could best be obtained by having a common fleet that is available, to be sent to any nart of the world as requisite. the fleet. being built and manned by means of a common contribution, both as regards money and personnel, it is confessed that this is a purely strategic ide:al. In the present state of Imperial de velopment, it is quite impossible that this should ever come to pass, not only for local considerations, but also he cause of the different stages of the Dominions Ps rea-rds their interest in and development of local nav...

Butter Pool's Trouble [Newspaper Article] — News — 28 July 1923
Butter Pool's Trouble Reports from QueenslIand indicate that tbhe butter pool committee in Brisbane is still able to maintain the wholesale price of TM/ a cwt. for first-grade butter in the metro polis. When, some little time ago, the price was reduced to 1/9, the revision was made owing to competition from New South Wale~s, Sydney bu:ycrs being in a position to re ship Queensland butter to Brisbane at low prices. Apparently efforts made to check re Importations of the kind were attended with succcs., because it was not long before the quotation was increased to 2/ a lb. whole sale, at which it now stands. It has not been possible wholly to stifle competition, and of late Sydney again has been shipping considerable quautitis of Queensland butter back to that State. This is disclosed by the number of retailers who are selling good but ter at cheap rates in the Brisbano shops.
