HEAVY MACHINERY For Murray Irrigation Works [Newspaper Article] — News — 24 July 1923
HEAVY MACHINERY For Murray Irrigation Works The steamer Woolgar brought to Port Adelaide machinery to augment the pumping plant of the Irrigation Department at Loveday, River Murray. It includes a high-speed steam engine and centrifugal pump of large capacity, made in Castlemaine, Victoria. Owing to lack of facilities for hand- ling heavy lifts at Port Adelaide six of the packages, which weighed a total of 41 tons, had to be transhipped into the barge Elwood and lightered to Commercial Wharf, where they were landed into railway trucks for car- riage to Murray Bridge. From there they will be sent up river by barge to Loveday, through Cobdogla. Despite the obsolete hand-operated crane at Commercial Wharf these six heavy lifts were handled on Thurs- day without accident in under two hours. The fact that railway lines at the Port are laid too far from the wharf edge to permit ships' gear landing cargo direct into trucks is a drawback that has long been felt, and necessi- tated the above...

Small Girl Visitor from Far-away East Quickly Exchanges Neat Trousers for Skirt [Newspaper Article] — News — 24 July 1923
Small Girl Visitor from Far-away East Quickly Exchanges Neat Trousers for Skirt It is not often that Adelaide has a visitor from the land of the lotus. Just now we have a dainty Chinese girl, Chan Soisoh, in our midst. She likes Adelaide for a holl- day, but would not care to live here always. She must go back to China. She was brought here about a month ago, and is filling the position of nurse- girl. People in a strange city are often troubled over money values, but this is not the case with Chan Soisoh, who understands the different values of coins to a nicety. She accompanied a lady on a shopping expedition one day, and had to get change for a half- crown. The wrong amount was given her, and she quickly passed it back, with great indignation, and demanded and received the right change. She is nineteen, and though has been in Adelaide only a little while she seems quite at home, and speaks Eng- lish well enough to make herself un- derstood. On arrival she wore the native Chinese ...
"BACK TO DARK AGES" Sunday Closing Prophesied HINDMARSH COUNCIL REJECT [Newspaper Article] — News — 24 July 1923
"BACK TO DARK AGES" Sunday Closing Prophesied HINDMARSH COUNCIL REJECT A proposal to ask the ratepayers of Hindmarsh to decide by a poll whether or not shops in the district shall close on Sundays was defeated at the last meeting of the Hindmarsh District Council. Sunday trading, said Ald. Woods in making the proposal, sad a detrimen- tal moral effect on the young. He had no desire to be puritanical, he said. Cr. Jervis (Croydon Ward) ridiculed the suggestion that Sunday trading was morally harmful. Only one sec- tion—the Port Road—was affected. Why should a majority of ratepayers in unaffected sections place a restric- tion on a minority who were affected? Cr. Shierlock said he did not desire to see Hindmarsh wowserish like Gawler, where, he understood, the people could not even bury their dead on Sunday. They would soon, per- haps, ring the Curfew Bell and forbid anyone to smile on Sunday. They were going back to the dark ages. Why should Hindmarsh alone abjure Sunday trade? Ald. ...
FLOWERS FROM VEGETABLES Chef Finds New Occupation [Newspaper Article] — News — 24 July 1923
FLOWERS FROM VEGETABLES Chef F'inds New Occupation Nestling daintily in a spray of rose- bush, encircled by green fern, two blood-red roses side by side with two beautiful yellow daisies, looked a tempting sight—until one examined them. Though all the picturesqueness was there, the wreath was a fraud. But it was a wonderful exhibition of carv- ing, for the flowers had all been deli- &nbsp; &nbsp; cately cut from vegetables. &nbsp; Vegetable carving is the new occupa- tion of Mr. F. P. Cullen, a chef. A bunch of flowers brought by him to "The News" office was a work of art. Swedes, turnips, carrots, and red beet all figured in a fascinating way. No one looking at the finely carved specimens would have doubted that they were real flowers. Each was care- fully hewn into shape. The work occu- pied half an hour.
FATAL NORWOOD ACCIDENT Council Stirred to Action [Newspaper Article] — News — 24 July 1923
FATAL NORWOOD ACCIDENT Council Stirred to Action Steps to minimise the risks of loss of life at the Maid and Magpie Hotel corner, are to be taken by the Ken- sington and Norwood Council, accord- ing to a resolution carried at the coun- cil's last meeting. Mr. E. O. Gooden, clerk, was in- structed to confer with St. Peters Town Clerk on the matter. "I have seen many narrow escapes at that corner," said Cr. Ross, referring to the accident causing the death of Mr. G. D. McLean. "Five streets con- verge to one point there, and make the locality very dangerous. I have been nearly caught myself, and I was won- dering if something could be placed at the spot to warn people of approaching traffic." He proposed the resolution, and Cr. Woods seconded it. "The locality is a real death-trap, and we ought to have taken precau- tions long ago to remedy it," Cr. Woods remarked.

BIRKS &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; "The Good Value Store" &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; PROGRESS &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; IN the year 1864, when those big-hearted pioneers were still blazing the trail for succeeding generations, the House of Birks &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; was founded. Nearly sixty years ago Mr. Charles Birks laid the foundations of this business in Hindley Street. He realized that to be an enduring institution it must be based on a definite plan, that plan one of Quality, Value and Service. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; This Progressive Establishment now owes its present position to the strict &nbsp; adherence to the early ...
MOTOR TAXATIONS Refunds Made [Newspaper Article] — News — 24 July 1923
MOTOR TAXATIONS Refunds Made Officials in the office of the Registrar of Motor Vehicles are being put to a good deal of trouble in refunding money unnecessarily paid in. Re- funds of nearly £100 a day are being made. This morning Mr. L. M Hurley (Act- ing Registrar) explained that people paid their taxation on motors up to March 31. The receipts were dated to June 30, the end of the financial year, and the majority of owners were under the impression that because their licenses expired on June 30 they had to pay their tax again. A similar thing happened last year, but prior to that people had been pay- ing regularly, and not doubling their payments. The next payment will be due on March 31, 1924.
PORT CONSUMERS Complain About Gas QUALITY AND PRICE [Newspaper Article] — News — 24 July 1923
PORT CONSUMERS Complain About Gas QUALITY AND PRICE Port Adelaide consumers pay more for their gas than those in the metro- politan area. Why a distinction should be made they fail to see. Efforts have been made to have the position reme- died, but no satisfaction has been re- ceived. The Port City Council has frequently moved in the matter. City councillors think that if a cer- tain standard is enforced by law in regard to other commodities the same should apply to gas. Ratepayers have been complaining of inferior gas, and since the price was increased a few weeks ago they have become incenssd, especially in the domestic sphere, where it is chiefly used for cooking purposes. In taking the matter up again the council intends to bring it before the Municipal Association with the object of having a Bill requiring a pure sup- ply drafted for submission to Parlia- ment.
"YOUR WORSHIP" Adelaide's Police Magistrate [Newspaper Article] — News — 24 July 1923
"YOUR WORSHIP" —.— Adelaide's Police Magistrate Mr. E. M. Sabine, LL.B., who occu- pies the office of Police Magistrate in Adelaide, is a native of this State. A son of the late Mr. Clement Sabine, &nbsp; he was born at Norwood in 1867. his early education was received at Lancing School, Glenelg, conducted by the late Mr. J. W. Billiatt. This gentle- man was a member of the party of the celebrated Australian explorer (Mr. John McDouall Stuart), which went from Adelaide through the middle of the continent to the shores of the In- dian Ocean. Mr. Sabine recalls the fact that each year, on the anniver- sary of the eventful day upon which the Indian Ocean was first sighted by the party, their old master would give them a morning's talk on the trip through the interior, and in the after- noon a half-holiday. Mr. Sabine continued his studies at St. Peter's College, from which he ma- triculated. He was articled to the late &nbsp; Mr. C. J. Dashwood, afterwards Crown Solicit...
LAUNCESTON GRIPPED Flue Invades Hospital LAUNCESTON, To-day. [Newspaper Article] — News — 24 July 1923
LAUNCESTON GRIPPED Flue Invades Hospital LAUNCESTON, To-day. Influenza, which for the past few weeks has been p revalentt in Laun- ceston, has invadide the hospital. The nursing staff has been reduced by half, and the surgeon has also contracted the complaint.

Flour and Tea Prices [Newspaper Article] — News — 24 July 1923
Flour and Tea Prices &nbsp; Minimum prices for tea and flour were re- cently considered by a sub-committee of the Retail Grocers' Association of South Aus- tralia at two conferences with representatives from the three principal packers of tea and flour in Adelaide. The conferences were of a very friendly nature (says the official organ of the association). The wholesale merchants said they desired to see that the reltailers obtained a fair margin of profit on the commodities mentioned, and if the asso- ciation was willing to co-operate they would name minimum retail prices. This was acceptable to the retailers, and this arrange- ment is now being put into force.
Business Man's Diary NEW COMMONWEALTH LOAN. [Newspaper Article] — News — 24 July 1923
Business Man's Diary NEW COMMONWEALTH LOAN. There are many attractive features about the new Commonwealth Government loan of £21,500,000 which is being issued to meet the unconverted balance of the seventh War Loan falling due on September 15. In the first place, it is a short-dated loan, and issues of this character are popular with investors. The price of issue is £98, and interest at the rate of 5 per cent. will be free of State income tax. Holders of stock or bonds in the 5 per cent. 1923, 5 per cent. 1948, and the 4½ per cent. 1925 loans may convert into the new issue. The Commonwealth Government has endea- vored to offer an attractive rate to invest- tors in the new loan, and considering the nature of the security offered, the rate must be regarded as liberal. After all, security is the main thing, and there is no safer se- curity in Australia than a Commonwealth Government Bond.
BUTTER TRADE DISTURBED. [Newspaper Article] — News — 24 July 1923
BUTTER TRADE DISTURBED. Owing to the continued cold and wet wea- ther in this State several unusual and some- what disturbing features are presenting themselves in connection with the butter in- dustry. In normal years the early season in South Australia has enabled the trade to dispose of a large proportion of the surplus production to Victorian and New South Wales buyers. Consequent upon recent wea- ther conditions the season is about four weeks late, and it is quite possible that it will be another month before any shipments are made to London. Last year good sales were made to the eastern States early in the season, and moderate quantities of butter were exported to England from the end of July onwards. It is true that there is a surplus of supplies in this State at present, and limited business has been done with the neighboring State; but indications point to the "flush" season running close to that in Victoria. During the last few days Victorian buyers have been exercising ca...
