THE COAL CRISIS. WILL TRANSPORT UNIONS ASSIST? APPEAL TO FULL COURT BEGINS TO-DAY [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 9 January 1930
THE COAL CRISIS. aMLL TRANSPORT UNIONS |% ASSIST? | jappeal to full court £l4/ begins to-day The position in the coal crisis has developed into one of waiting for the result of the High Court proceedings which com mence to-day. Mr. Jifstice Beeby has completed taking evi dence, and the subsequent legal argument is awaited with' criti cal interest. At Rothbury all is quiet, and it is reported that coal is being mined with expedition and economy. Much speculation centres round the question of whether or not the railwaymen and seamen will throw their weight behind the miners, and, by declaring all coal won by free labour 'black,' to hold up its distribution. The mine owners have refused the new demands of the Miners' Federation for higher rates throughout the Australian coal industry. They declare that this is but a ruse to extend the trouble to other States. SIDNEY, January 1. If Ibe intention of the Miners' Fede ration is carried out, miners in llie western and southern coalfields of...
FIFTY YEARS AGO. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 9 January 1930
FIFTY YEARS AGO. FROM 'CAPRICORNIAN' FILES. The following, are extracts from the issue of ' The Capricornian ' of Janu ary 10th, 1880:— The approaching municipal annual elections are beginning to excite atten tion. In the Rockhaiupton Council the members who retire by rotation are Al derman W. G. Caporn for Archer Ward, Alderman J. Ferguson for Fitzroy Ward and Alderman R. Sharpies for Leich hardt Ward. In addition to these there will be a vacancy caused by the resig nation of Alderman J. Buudy from the representation of Leichhardt Ward. We presume that Aldermen Ferguson and. Sharpies will consent to stand for re election. We hope that they will do uo for they can ill be spared from the seats that they have so efficiently occupied. Alderman Caporn, however, retires after eleven years' service. It appears that by an accidental omission of his name from the voters' roll lie is disqualified as a candidate for the forthcoming year, but, independently of that circumstance, he states, it ...

LETTER FROM LONDON. LONDON, November 28, 1929. The "Father of Victory." [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 9 January 1930
LETTER FROM LONDON. LONDON, November 28, 1929. The ''Father of Victory.' TF any one man might lay claim to having 'won the war,' it was Georges Clemenceau, known to his countrymen as the 'Father of Vic tory.' and nicknamed by Mr. Lloyd George 'The Grand Old Man of Prance' In hfs youth Clemenceau suffered imprisonment for revolution ary rervour, ana his father, to whom he was deeply devoted, was exiled for the same offence. Yet 60 years later, on the appeal of his bitterest political foe, Poincare, the 'Tiger' consented to forget all personal and party ani mosities, and to shoulder as Premier ] the burden of a great war that soenied almost lost. Nivell's ghastly losses ! oi 1917 had reduced some French regi ments to mutiny, and in Paris a group of defeatists ruled under Caillaux. Clemenceau accepted the task at an age when most men are either dead or valetudinarian, and make the ? shortest speech ever addressed to the French Chamber — 'I am making war.' His Bitter Wit. rilHOUGH he ma...

WEATHER CONDITIONS. IN DECEMBER. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 9 January 1930
WEATHER CONDITIONS. IN DECEMBER. The following notes on meteorological conditions iu Queensland during De cember, 1020, have been supplied by the Meteorological Bureau, Brisbane: — As in the previous month a notable feature of pressure distribution was the general weakness of anliuyclonic influ ences, for not one of six high pressure systems traversed Australia i;om ilic In dian Ocean without losing iulensKj, and all, except the last, faded away be fore reaching the Tasiaan Sea. Tropi cal ..low piesbuiu activity wab pro jounced all through the month and Sou thern Ojciu V-duprejuions co-ojKrcted to an unusual degree, several of the ruiiuuoiiiil ''lows' having moved south eastwards across the eastern half of thu Continent and amalgamated with them. Owing probably to the peculiar behaviour of the anticyclones, the distribution of rainfall was very unsatisfactory, nearly all of it having occurred iu the linst three and the last three days and be tween 18th and 2Jtli. Thus it happened th...
