RAILWAYS CONTROL IN N.S.W. DIFFICULT Sydney, September 30. [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931
RAILWAYS CONTROL IN N.S.W. DIFFICULT Sydney, September 30. The Ministerial powers created by the Transport Act are being fully used for the enforcement of political control of the railways, and almost every impor- tant decision given by the Railways Commissioners recently, with the ob- ject of placing the railways services on an efficient basis, has been reversed by the Premier (Mr. Lang). In political circles it is believed that the Government's objective is to make the position of the Chief Commissioner (Mr. Cleary) so untenable that he will be compelled to resign. Mr. Cleary at present does not intend to resign. Early this month the Commissioners gave directions that 198 adult clerks, who had been doing juniors' work, should be dismissed, and their posi- tions filled with juniors. The deci- sion has been countermanded by the Premier as the result of representa- tions made by union officials. Recent decisions of the Commis- sioners reversed by the Government in- clude the followin...
UNEMPLOYED CAUSE TROUBLE IN LONDON LONDON, September 30. [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931
UNEMPLOYED CAUSE TROUBLE IN LONDON LONDON, September 30. Swarming out of Hyde Park, singing the '"Bed Flag and shouting. "Down with the National Government," seve- ral thousands of unemployed demon- strated in front of the Houses of Par- liament today. They broke a police cordon and attempted to enter the gates of the Boose of Lords, but re- inforcements were rushed from Scot- land Yard by motor. Mounted police dashed up and scattered the crowd. The demonstrators tried to pull the troopers from their horses, but they used their batons freely. Traffic in Parliament Square was at a standstill until the mounted police charged and cleared the square. Nine men were arrested, and attempts to rescue them were defeated. A depu- tation was permitted to hand a petition to Labor members of Parliament, and the crowd then marched up White- &nbsp; hall. A wild scuffle took place near the Cenotaph, the unemployed rushing a squad of police.
GENERAL NEWS UNIVERSITY LECTURE FEES [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931
GENERAL NEWS UNIVERSITY LECTURE FEES Referring yesterday to the decision or the Perth University Senate that attendance at lectures would continue to be free. Mr. F. W. Eardley (Regis- trar of the University of Adelaide) stated that the Perth University was the only one in Australia where fees for lectures were not charged. The question had evidently been reconsi- dered there, probably owing to the pressure of the times, and the deci- sion, as far as the Perth University Senate was concerned, was to con- tinue that policy. However, examina- tion and degree fees were charged over there. Fees for lectures were always charged at the Adelaide University, and produced a considerable amount of re- venue. The question of not charging fees for lectures was not likely to arise here, as far as the University Council was concerned. FINE FOR THE PRESENT The Divisional Meteorologist reported last night :—During the 24 hours ended 830 a.m., a light to moderate rain was recorded over the settled d...
MURRAY HERDS ON NEW PASTURES 2,000 Cattle Provided For PRODUCTION MAINTAINED [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931
MURRAY HERDS ON NEW PASTURES 2,000 Cattle Provided For PRODUCTION MAINTAINED About 2,000 cattle have been moved from the Murray River areas affected by the flood last month. All these cattle, which repre- sent about 90 herds, are depastured &nbsp; in various districts, the bulk of them being in the hills. Their production is reported to have suffered little, if any, fall because of the change, and with the satisfactory arrangements that have been made between settler and landowner, the position of the settlers is much better than could have been expected a month ago. That this is so is due to the promp- titude of the Cattle Agistment Relief Committee, which made a State-wide appeal for offers for the care and ac- commodation of the herds. It was fortunate, too, that there was an abun- dance of feed in all parts of the State. Another favoring circumstance was that not all those with grazing land to spare could themselves provide the ad- ditional stock which their land could c...
SHIP'S RACE TO PORT Sick Carpenter Landed at Anchorage 430-MILE DASH [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931
SHIP'S RACE TO PORT Sick Carpenter Landed at Anchorage 430-MILE DASH To save the life of a member of the ship's crew, who was dangerously sick, the Clan line steamer Clan MacTavish, bound from South Africa, to Hobart, made a desperate race to the nearest port, which happened to be Port Ade- laide, and she arrived unexpectedly yesterday morning at the Semaphore Anchorage. At 7 p.m. on Monday, while the ves- sel was in the Bight on its way from East London, South Africa, to Hobart, Mr. J. J. Cowley, the ship's carpenter, collapsed in the bathroom. Shipmates carried him to his bunk, and Captain D. A. Purton and the chief officer attended him. Seeing that the man was dan- gerously ill, Captain Purton gave orders for wireless messages to be sent out for advice, while he turned the ship fun speed ahead towards Port Adelaide —430 miles away. An answer to the wireless calls was received from a doc- tor on a passenger ship in the vicinity, who, after hearing the particulars of the illness ov...

STRIKERS CLASH WITH POLICE Three Killed: 20 Injured TROUBE IN CANADA ESTEVAN (Saskatchewan), Sept. 29. Three miners were killed and 20 people injured, including five policemen and two women, in a clash between striking miners and police here on Tuesday afternoon. &nbsp; The battle was the culmination of weeks of bitterness arising out of a strike at the coal mines at Bien Fiat and Taylor Town, near here. The miners planned to march on Estevan on Tuesday, but the mayor would not allow this. The strikers, however, en- tered the town in trucks, and automo- biles. When they began marching through the streets they encountered the police, who blocked the entrance to the town hall with a barricade. &nbsp; Showering the barrage with missiles, &nbsp; the strikers pressed on while the police &nbsp; slowly withdrew. &nbsp; The officers first fired into the air and drew their batons. They then called out a fire engine, and tried to turn a hose on the crow...

AIR HAIL SERVICE Imperial Airways Ready FROME ENGLAND LONDON, September 28. [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931
AIR HAIL SERVICE Imperial Airways Ready FROM ENGLAND LONDON, September 28. Acceding to the Australian Press Association's request for a com- prehensive official statement about the England-Australia air mail. Mr. G. E. Woods-Humphry, managing director of the Imperial Airways, de- nied the statement that the Air Minis- try considered Imperial Airways' quo- tation for the service too high. On the contrary, he said, all questions of tech- nical preparations and finance were worked out in conjunction with the Air Ministry, with which title company was in complete accord. He revealed that Imperial Airways had drawn up a new scheme for a weekly service, which had not been submitted to Australia yet. "The Dutch service is subsidised for the whole of the 10,000 miles to Java," he said, "whereas Imperial Airways are subsidised for only 4,500 miles to India. Nevertheless we believe we can submit to Australia a more attractive offer than the Dutch. It is a pity to see them participate in the A...
DEARTH OF POLITICAL LEADERS Plan to Stimulate Interest of Young People [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931
DEARTH OF POLITICAL LEADERS Plan to Stimulate Interest of Young People To consider means of stimulating the interest of young people in matters of national and political importance, a meeting of representatives of old scholars' associations, convened by the Citizens' League, was held last night. The president (Mr. W. Queale) occu- pied the chair. Professor W. McKellar Stewart said that, looking back over the past two years, one was disturbed by the dearth in political leadership of the kind that thoroughly prepared the ground for collective decision, and brought dearly into view the principles involved in any issue. The most urgent necessity was that of raising tbe mind in political leadership. It involved the election to Parliament of men of superior intelli- gence. Was the dearth but a reflec- tion of some fundamental weakness in their common life? There were cer- tain principles which should control school education. Education was essentially the process of training minds for ser...
EXPLOSION CAUSES DEATH Farmer's Body In Park OPEN VERDICT [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931
EXPLOSION CAUSES DEATH Farmer's Body In Park OPEN VERDICT "No evidence has been tendered to show whether death was caused accidentally or intentionally, and the verdict will therefore be, that death was due to injuries re- &nbsp; ceived from the effects of an explosion," &nbsp; said the City Coroner (Mr. F. C. Siek- mann), at an inquest yesterday into the death of Henry William Fleury (49), farmer, of Echunga, whose body was found on the bank of the Torrens in the Botanic Park on. Sunday. Mary Jane Fleury said that when her husband left Echunga for Adelaide last Thursday to transact some busi- ness, he was in good health and spirits. He had been engaged in clearing land for some time, and when he first be- gan the work had been using explo- sives, but this had not been necessary lately. She did not know whether he had had any experience of explosives, and knew of no reason why he should harm himself. &nbsp; Evidence of Doctor Evidence of an examination con- d...
UNUSUAL, COACHING METHODS Saturdays' Final PERSONAL TUITION FOR NORTH [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931
UNUSUAL COACHING METHODS Saturdays' Final PERSONAL TUITION FOR NORTH Unusual methods are being adopted by the coaches of Saturday's football finalists, North and Sturt. On Mon- &nbsp; day Sturt players were lectured by S. White, and North's men are being edu- cated individually in tactics by Percy Lewis. &nbsp; &nbsp; Both coaches are excellent strate- gists. White thinks that, in the hustle and bustle always noticeable in the dressing-room before the start of games, much of the value of a coach's talk to players is lost. That is why Sturt met on Monday night. Lewis is an advocate of personal tuition. Throughout the year he has treated his players individually, so far as correcting faults is concerned, and &nbsp; this week he will educate each man in the tactics suited to the position he will occupy on Saturday. Dinner for Both Teams North seems to be still improving after its lapse of form during the finish of the minor round, and Mr. C. Young, secre...
BANKS AND EMERGENCY ACT Bill in Assembly Today [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931
BANKS AND EMERGENCY ACT Bill in Assembly Today In the House of Assembly today, the Premier (Mr. Hill) will move the second reading of a short but important Bill to amend the Financial Emergency Act. Departing from the original draft, the South Australian Parliament &nbsp; brought the banks under the provisions of this Act as from October 1. The amending Bill, which provides that the banks shall come within the &nbsp; scope of the emergency legislation "on &nbsp; a date to be proclaimed," has been in- troduced at the unanimous request of the Federal Ministry and all Mr. Hill's fellow-Premiers, to bring the South Australian Act into substantial con- formity with the Acts passed in the &nbsp; other States. Since the passage of the &nbsp; Hill Government's emergency legisla- tion, the banks have given acceptable assurances that they will do all that was expected of them under the Pre- miers' Plan. &nbsp;

SHOT AND BURNED Tragedy at Ganger's Camp Brisbane, September 30. A shooting tragedy is reported from a ganger's camp near the Julia Creek wool scour. Thomas Boland was shot dead, and a man named Stein or Smith was seriously injured. It is alleged that after fatally shoot- &nbsp; ing Boland and wounding Stein, Thomas Connolly, a fettler, turned a revolver on himself, and is reported to be in a critical condition. Boland's charred body was found on a motor &nbsp; lorry, which had apparently been set on fire before Connolly attempted to &nbsp; &nbsp; commit suicide.
BRITAIN'S MOVE FOR ECONOMY Bill Passes Commons MAJORITY OF 55 LONDON, September 29. [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931
BRITAIN'S MOVE FOR ECONOMY Bill Passes Commons MAJORITY OF 55 LONDON, September 29. The Economy Bill, one of the momentous measures designed to help Britain to overcome her eco- &nbsp; nomic difficulties, passed its third reading in the House of Commons today by 297 votes to 242. &nbsp; In moving the third reading, Sir &nbsp; Arthur Steel Maitland (Conservative) said the Bill was designed to meet an emergency demanding quick and deci- sive action. He asked the House to re- cognise that. The crisis was confront- &nbsp; ing other countries and would confront nearly every country in the world. It was not merely a difficulty that could &nbsp; be surmounted leaving the world just as it was before. These difficulties presaged a new state of affairs. Within &nbsp; ten years there would be a regime of international agreement on economics and finance surpassing anything hitherto contemplated. That ques- tion would equal, if not surpass, in im- ...
ELECTION WITHOUT PROGRAMME Latest Lobby Report LONDON, September 29. [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931
ELECTION WITHOUT PROGRAMME Latest Lobby Report LONDON, September 29. It is stated that Ministers are now considering the idea of an appeal by the National Government to the coun- try without a programme, asking for a free hand to deal with the crisis and neither specifying nor excluding any particular measure. This would in- volve the Conservatives sacrificing their plan of fighting an election on a full tariff issue. On the other hand, it implies a Liberal acceptance of a tariff. If it is found necessary to meet spe- cial circumstances it is believed that Conservative leaders will be willing to agree to a manifesto on the "widest lines. The "Times" says Mr. Mac Donald now has an opportunity rarely ac- corded a statesman. He need not wait for a united front before taking the lead. If he raises his standard as National leader a good response is as- sured. Statement Expected Today After seeing the King at Buckingham Palace the Prime Minister (Mr. Mac- Donald) attended a Cabinet meetin...
NO WRITING DOWN OF CAPITAL Position of War Service Homes Canberra. September 30. [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931
NO WRITING DOWN OF CAPITAL Position of War Service Homes Canberra, September 30. It is not the intention of the Gov- &nbsp; ernment to write off any of the £28,000,000 capital owing to the public by war service homes buyers. The Prime Minister (Mr. Scullin), in making this announcement in the House of Representatives today, added that the occupants of these homes had been granted one-half per cent, reduc- tion of interest: every case of hard- ship was being relieved on its merits, and consideration was being given to carrying forward the repayments of principal for one year. "It is impossible to contemplate a writing down of capital value of houses." said Mr. Scullin. "Nobody can value these houses today on a basis that would be equitable to the buyers and the community. If they are written down in the depressed state of the market today the writing down would be permanent; there would be no prospect of writing the values up again when the market improves." &nbsp;
Railways Report [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931
Railways Report "By such a plan Parliament can establish a real, and effective, financial control over the undertaking in place of the present formal and ineffective one with its periodic and embarrassing railway losses, and the scheme, if adopted, will, in our opinion, prove a substantial benefit to both the taxpayer and the railway employes." "Demoralising Policy" "The present practice of permitting railways to depend upon Parliament to find the funds to meet the huge deficits of recent years is demoralising both for the State and the railways," insists the commission.* "On the one hand it establishes a tendency for the rail ways to depend upon the public re- &nbsp; serves instead of upon their own en- deavors, which easily fosters inefficiency and the continuance of lines, services, and methods of working which would not otherwise survive, and it is our considered opinion, that the railway losses would not have been so great if the administration had not felt that the def...
Cut among the People [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931
Cut among the People By Rufus. AT a delightful luncheon party at the South Australian Hotel yesterday. Dr. FitzGerald entertained us with some of his stories. He is most versa- tile, and can talk about a thoroughbred horse, the latest book, or the financial and the econo- mic position. Dr. FitzGerald said:— "I listen in to your wireless talks in Mel- bourne, and here is a story you can tell next Friday night. An American lawyer had been promoted to the bench, and in returning thanks, said:—'Gen- tlemen, you can rely on me to tamper with both justice and mercy.' " Gipsy Girl YESTERDAY, Seth Ferry, who took the Hunt Club Cup eight times, recalled with af- &nbsp; fection the mare Gipsy Girl, which &nbsp; won the first cup for him in 1869. &nbsp; He said, "I used &nbsp; to ride her to the &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; city from Wood- &nbsp; side, go through &nbsp; &nbsp; the hunt, and then jog home again in the &...
