FINE WOOLS FIRM OTHER CLASSES CHEAPER. [Newspaper Article] — Adelong Argus, Tumut and Gundagai Advertiser — 12 February 1925

FINE WOOLS FIRM OTHER CLASSES CHEAPER. ? A\ inchcomlie, Carson, Ltd., report:— Demand was. again restricted at our Sydney wool sale last Monday. Japan ese competition was not so active. Un ited States operators f competed for the more attractive offerings and French inquiry was experienced for any lots showing fine quality. German bidding was also easier and Yorkshire proved a vrey sparse bidder. Austra lian and Italian manufacturers, liow ! over, frequently gave the market good i support. I Recent values were maintained for fine merino wools. Shufty free wools suited to the American mills were 2} to 5 per cent, cheaper compared with the previous Sydney auctions. Merino fleece wools in which broadness was evident and all skirtings declined 5 to 75 per cent. Rates for comebacks and crossbreds were also 5 to 7i per cent, lower. ISMs generally displayed much irregularity. Our catalogue generally included a selection of average merino wools drawn .from Southern, Northern, and Central AV...

TALE OF A DOG. [Newspaper Article] — Adelong Argus, Tumut and Gundagai Advertiser — 12 February 1925

TALE OF A DOG. It seems extraordinary to hear of a man losing a dog in Wagga and find ing the animal again while surfing at Manly. But truth is ^stronger than fiction, and such was actually the ex perience of a Wagga resident. The owner set some valuo on the dog which was lost in W.agga about a month ago, and he went , to the extent of advertising his loss but without result. Then oif he went with his family to Sydney for a spell by the briny. Surfing at Manly was a popu lar pastime and it was while lie was; on the beach thus engaged that his: dog, evincing every indication of glad recognition, pranced up to the family. Shortly afterwards a man came who. claimed ownership of the dog, but the nan ;from Murrumbidgeo told him thjt he could come .to the police station. The stranger . appeared willing until about half the distance had been tra versed. Then lio eald that ho would not bother, tho Wagga man could keep the dog, though he had bought it In Sussex Street. The owner, who was cer...

DIGGERS FIGHT TO REPATRIATE THEMSELVES. WEAVING OF ANZAC TWEED TO BE CARRIED ON. [Newspaper Article] — Adelong Argus, Tumut and Gundagai Advertiser — 12 February 1925

DIGGERS FIGHT TO RE PATRIATE THEMSELVES. WEAVING OF ANZAC TWEED TO BE CARRIED ON. When the work of rctuldii'voii jv:ns began by the . Victorian Staio War Council in 1015, returned disabled soldiers were instructed in the art or hand weaving. Looms were built and yarn was procured from the Com monwealth Woollen Mills, Geelong. Iii a few months the soldiers became expert weavers, ^ and the quality of their work was such that the tweeds produced by them had a ready sale at good prices. These were the first of the Anzae Tweeds which have since become famous throughout Australia and are not unknown abroad. When the work of repatriation was taken over by the Commonwealth Department of Repatriation, it was thought that hand weaving would not survive competition with the power looms and an attempt was made to close down the Industry. A strenuous campaign, however, re sulted lu the soldier weavers being allowed to . go under the control of the Returned Sailors and Soldiers' Im perial League....

COUNTRY TOWNS. POPULATIONS COMPARED. [Newspaper Article] — Adelong Argus, Tumut and Gundagai Advertiser — 12 February 1925

COUNTRY TOWNS. POPULATIONS COMPARED. The latest figures showing the popu lation of the principal country towns are for the year ended December 31, 1023. Commenting on these the statls tic.Vn says: — 'As might be expected from the nature of the Industries of the State there are In New South Wales com-' paratlvely few large to\tun. Outside the metropolitan area the only towns of outstanding Importance, are New Castle and Broken Hill, and tho exis tence of both is due to the rich min eral deposits in their neighbourhood. Lilhgow, the third largest town out side County Cumberland closely de pendent upon the city, there are only two country centres with a popula tion exceeding 10,000 ; twelve, includ ing two unincorporated, between 5000 and 10,000; and twenty, including two unincorporated between 30000 and 5000.

RE-ARRANGEMENT OF, I SHIRE RIDINGS I MOTION TO ALTER DEFEATED. The notice of motion by Crs. Grain and Benson, to alter the boundaries of ithe ridings of Gadara Shire, in order to give the ratepayers more equal rep rcsentation, came before AVednesday's meeting, but was defeated, only being ?supported by the mover and seconder. ('.? drain nointed out that there wore 070 voters in 'B' and 'O' Rid ings, and 553 (with 80 to be added) in 'A' Riding. The 070 bad four rep resentatives on the Council, and the 55;} (pins 90) only two representa tives. The mover based his arguments for the change upon the principle of ?one man one vote, which he said was adopted by all governments in the Commonwealth as the fairest method. Cr. Ilerlih.v, who was. the main spea ker in opposition, said the one man one vote principle was a big curse to ? the country, and resulted in a lot of useless citizens of the city, who were non-producers having practically the biggest say in the government of the country.
