FELLOW-DIRECTORS' RECOGNI- TION. At the monthly meeting of directors of the Townsville Gas Company, held at the offices of Messrs Wareham and Donald on Monday afternoon, the op- portunity was taken to demonstrate the kindly feelings felt towards Mr Lennon and his family. In a few pleasant remarks, Mr A. T.

TICKS. [Newspaper Article] — Townsville Daily Bulletin — 9 July 1907
TICKS. Referring to my remarks last week under this heading, ticks were to-day discovered on cattle on the common, and as already stated the Ward and Warrego river routes have been closed consequent upon the discovery of the ticks in those localities. This is a serious business so far as this stock marekt is concerned, and it is to be hoped the Stock Department will "chuck itself about" and enforce the dipping regulations in the case of cattle travelling in to these districts from the north. Gross carelessness on the one part, and scarcity of dips in the other are the primary cause of the ticks. having reached this hitherto clean country, and if the post is to be nipped in the bud it will necessitate strict and prompt action on the part of the de- partment. All pending cattle sales in the Warrego district have for the time being been abandoned, and generally speaking the outlook so far as the spreading of the tick pest is concurred is viewed by stock owners and dealers in this distr...

The Bulletin. PUBLISHED DAILY. TUESDAY, JULY 9, 1907. STATE POLITICS. [Newspaper Article] — Townsville Daily Bulletin — 9 July 1907
The Bulletin. PUBLISHED DAILY. TUESDAY, JULY 9, 1907. STATE POLITICS. For reasons which have frequently been set forth by us since the Assembly elections two months ago it is much to be regretted that the political leaders whose programmes are almost identical have been unable to join their forces and give Queensland a Government strong enough to pursue a definite policy. Minority rule by favor of the weakest of the three political parties is the prospect placed before Queens- land by the Premier's selection of men to fill the vacancies in the Cabinet. Australia has had and still is having experience of the unsatisfactory char- acter of that arrangement. Being ne- cessarily a position of unstable equili- brium a political crisis and change of Government will always be imminent. In the Commonwealth Parliament this is expected to arrive as soon as the Customs tariff has been revised. It is only the fact that the Deakin Gov- ernment stands for a high protective tariff and that this fis...

IRELAND'S TRADE MARK. Industrial Ireland lias set an ex ample to Industrial Australia — It ha» gone In for a national trade mark.
