Statistically, Wool Prospects are Bright. [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 25 March 1924
Statistically, Wool Prospects are Bright HOW will wool sell next year? Nobody knows for certain! Opinions differ, naturally, but It can be said that none of the experts expect to 'see any big change. One authority here in Sydney puts it thus: 'Wool prices may go up a .little, they may go down a little, or they may remain practically on the same level as to-day. I do not know.' - Statistically, the position is eminently sound. The world's wool supplies npfl not 1nr»r#-jis1nfr. Tn fnr-t f-lipv nro still Four years ago there was Bawra's ' 'mountain of wool.' To-day compara ?a tively It is only a mole hill. No country has considerably Increased its wool production in the last four years. The world to-day Is relying upon only the actual growth of wool for its needs. Sir Arthur Goldfinch estimates that the standard of consumption to-day 'v exceeds the actual- growth by at least twelve per cent. In the United States the tendency is towards less and less wool produc - tion. Cattle andj agri...

Parliament Should Keep Better Hours [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 25 March 1924
Parliament Should Keep Better Hours IT N Queensland there Is. a suggestion that Parliament should sit in the day 1 time only. The Acting Premier (Mr. Gillies) favours the suggestion. v At first flush, the suggestion seems good. If Parliament sat only in the day-time, you would expect better legislation. And everybody kno\Vs that ?we want better legislation, although we could do with less legislation. If Parliament sat in the day-time only, however, numbers of excellent zsen would be debarred from it. They could not afford, or they would, not be 'disposed, to give the whole of their time to Parliament. iuUIiy llieu ill VUX1UUB wumg UL UlU, bUOi Ub U±V piXiUUlj Uiicicaw, uuar s©ss, and the professions, would not be able to enter Parliament.
