COUNTRY CRICKET. A PHEASANT CREEK WIN. ROCKHAMPTON, January 14. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
COUNTRY CRICKET. A PHEASANT CREEK WIN. ROCKHAMPTON, January 14. Our Buneru correspondent wrote on the 10th instant :— There is a good deal of rivalry be- tween the Pheasant Creek and Buneru districts in cricket and other sport, and this was manifested last Sunday when the Creekites came here to play the local eleven. The visitors won the toss, and sent Buneru in. Buneru were dismissed for 62 (R, Manton 14, G. Henderson 13 not out, and D. M'Pherson 11). J. Lindley secured five for 8, A. Hassall three for 21, P. Marson one for 12 and C. Hassall one for 13. Pheasant Creek opened disastrously, the first two wickets falling for 9, but &nbsp; the next wicket added 35. J. Lindley topscored with 34, including four 4's and two 6's. He was the only batsman who reached double figures. The innings closed for 76. G. Henderson bagged four for 9, D. M'Pherson four for 32, A. M'Pherson two for 5. Buneru, in their second knock, were dismissed for 39. D. M'Pherson (16) did best. J. Lindley wa...
"EIGHT-NINE-OUT." BACK TO THE WILD. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
"EIGHT-NINE-OUT." BACK TO THE WILD. There is something about a knock out in boxing which places it as the supremely dramatic moment in sport. There is nothing like it in any other game, for frequently it comes unexpectedly, possibly from a reeling, almost beaten man, and when it comes it releases the ani- mal buried deeply beneath the tai- lored suit and faultless manners of a shop assistant or the meekness of an eight-stone clerk. Down on the white canvas of the ring, under dazzling white lights, two perfectly conditioned athletes are weav- ing in and out; a white arm at the end of which is a blob of brown leather, shoots out and another follows it. But the second athlete has moved in and the wicked punch curls round his neck. ''Ah-h-h!'' sighs the mob from the surrounding darkness, and with a scrape of shoes on resined canvas, the two &nbsp; men beneath the lights slide out again. Then there comes a time when one of the boxers fails to move inside the punch or fails to blo...

THE COAL CRISIS. DEMONSTRATION BY MINERS. TRANSPORT UNIONS SUPPORTING MINERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
THE COAL CRISIS. DEMONSTRATION BY MINERS. TRANSPORT UNIONS SUPPORTING MINERS. Although conditions were comparatively quiet on the northern coalfields during the weekend, serious trouble is threatened. Miners are talking about further marches on Rothbury and speculation is rife as to whether there will be a demonstration at the Maitland Court House when the inquest into the death of Nor- man Brown, who was shot during the riot, commences. No further coal has been hauled from Rothbury, but many filled trucks are awaiting removal. The general position was discussed at a meeting of the Labour defence organisation at Cessnock. The meeting, which was at- tended by 1000 miners, was held behind closed doors. Subsequently the miners marched in procession through the main thoroughfare, where they formed a guard of honour for 250 women, led by two &nbsp; women carrying a banner inscribed ''Norman Brown did not die in vain. Out of it a workers' army has been formed.'' The demon- stratio...
KING'S ADDRESS. AT NAVAL CONFERENCE. MELBOURNE, January 13. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
KING'S ADDRESS. AT NAVAL CONFERENCE. MELBOURNE. January 13. For the first time in the history of broadcasting an attempt will be made on January 21st to transmit an address by His Majesty the King to all parts of the Empire. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Preliminary arrangements are being made to pick up the address in Aus- tralia and rebroadcast it from 2FC Syd- ney and other Australian A class sta- tions. If it is satisfactory the trans- mission is certain to be rebroadcast by 3LG. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; If the attempt is successful all per- sons in Australia owning even a crystal set will be able to hear the King speak. KING GEORGE. The address will be delivered at the naval disarmament conference, which will be opened by His Majesty in Lon- don at 11 o'clock on the morning of January 21st. The transmission, dur- ing which the whole of the opening pro- ceedings will be broadcast, will occupy about t...
INDIAN STATUS. A REPLY TO LABOUR. LONDON, January 8. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
INDIAN STATUS. — 0 — A REPLY TO LABOUR. LONDON, January 8. Lord Russell's recent references to India have evoked sharp criticisms from Labour circles in Britain. Lord Rus- sell now says that his speech was over- summarised. He claims, he never said that Dominion status for India was not possible for a long time, but that the evolution of democratic institutions had taken a long time, and in Britain even now were not perfect. He hoped, &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; with India's co-operation, to evolve a workable scheme. The Labour Party was sincere in this matter. &nbsp; ''I deplore alike,'' he says, ''the at- titude of the Indian National Congress and the British Tories. The Press is causing the present embarrassment, and I trust that my Indian friends will rally round Lord Irwin, the Viceroy, who is India's best friend.''
TRACKED CRIPPEN. ARRESTED BALFOUR. LONDON, January 7. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
TRACKED CRIPPEN. ARRESTED BALFOUR. LONDON, January 7. &nbsp; &nbsp; Frank Frost, the famous detective, died to-day. (Frost was very much in the public eye towards the end of last century, and the beginning of the present. He went out to the Argentine Republic in 1893 and arrested Jabez Balfour, the well known British public man, who had been the author of a gigantic swindle in connection with the Liberator &nbsp; &nbsp; Building Society. (Frost was very much '' up against it'' when he arrived in Argentina, as every possible means was adopted to prevent the extradition of Jabez Bal- four. But eventually the Argentine authorities handed over the ''wanted'' man and Frost accompanied him to England. (A still more sensational case, in &nbsp; which he acted, was that of Dr. Crippen. Crippen had poisoned his wife with hyoscyne and fled to Canada with Miss Le Neve. The ship on which they travelled was then (1902) somewhat of a novelty, as it was fitte...
POLAR DISCOVERIES. LONDON, January 8. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
POLAR DISCOVERIES. LONDON. January 8. The following radio message has been received from Sir G. H. Wilkins, De- ception Island:— '' We are back again, and have had time to approximately plot our discov- eries. We fixed the north coast of Charcot Land at five miles south of its charted position. The cape where the coast turns south beyond the most easterly point is conspicuous enough to deserve a name, and we suggest that it be called Cape Mawson. Another cape, Long. 76 degrees W. and Lat. 70 degrees S., we should like to be known as Cape Byrd. We sighted two islands which, possibly, are the most easterly. We are uncertain of the number of is- lands belonging to the Finlay group. It is not likely that we will be return- ing to New York until April, owing to the dangerous uncertainty of flights &nbsp; &nbsp; across the pack ice. We are unable to make the Ross Sea flight, because of the absence of a suitable place to take off. We are postponing our Arctic cruise for a y...
THE PASTORAL AWARD. ACTIVITY AMONG UNIONS. PROTESTS FROM A WIDE AREA. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
THE PASTORAL AWARD. ACTIVITY AMONG UNIONS. PROTESTS FROM A WIDE AREA. Although the Brisbane branch of the A.W.U. strongly advise shearers to ''accept work at award rates and conditions,'' there are not wanting indications that more will be heard from the more ex- treme section. Reduction of output was urged at a meeting of 200 shearers held at Toowoomba, while a meeting at Dalby resolved to shear only at the old award rates. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Much centres round the fact that across the border, New South Wales shearers are working on a Federal award, and unions already are issuing warnings to those shearers who might essay to avoid the coming turmoil in Queensland by making for the southern States. AT CUNNAMULLA. CUNNAMULLA, January 8. Another meeting of the pastoral workers was held this morning and was attended by 120 men, who endorsed the action taken by the meeting of men &nbsp; on Sunday. They affirmed that they wished to win the...

VENGEANCE. POLICE AND COMMUNISTS. BERLIN, January 7. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
VENGEANCE. POLICE AND COMMUNISTS. BERLIN, January 7. A long procession of Communists at the funeral of a suburban comrade, who was murdered by Fascists, carried a manner, inscribed ''Vengeance for our murdered comrade.'' The police inter- vened to confiscate the banner, and a riot followed. The police allege that the Communists opened fire and they replied in self- defence, wounding several rioters. Two policemen were wounded. One was stabbed. Seven of the ringleaders have been arrested. The remainder re-formed the procession.
TELEPHOTOGRAPHY LONDON—BERLIN. LONDON, January 7. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
TELEPHOTOGRAPHY LONDON— BERLIN. LONDON. January 7. A representative of the Australian Press Association was present at the inauguration of the London-Berlin tele- photography service, which is controlled by the postal authorities. The Siemens Karolus Telefunken ser- vice is being utilised, as this works both ways on the same circuit. Professor H. B. Lees-Smith, the Post- master-General, transmitted his own photograph, and he received a photo of the German telegraph director. The latter was as perfect as a studio pic- ture. The actual transmission occupied 21½ minutes, the negative being de- veloped and printed in 12 minutes. The representative inquired whether an extension to Australia was contem- plated. The reply was that the matter was under consideration. It is under- stood, however, that it is now being left for wireless interests to develop. The post office charges 1s., 4d. per square inch. It is even willing to en- courage the transmission of written messages, notwithstanding...
SON ARRESTED. MURDER OF MOTHER. LONDON, January 8. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
SON ARRESTED MURDER OF MOTHER. LONDON, January 8. There has been an astonishing de- velopment in a crime mystery which has been exciting the public curiosity for two and a-half months. Henry Fox, the 30 year-old son of Mrs. Rosalyne Fox, has been arrested, and he will be charged to-morrow with the murder of his mother, who was found dead in room No. 66, of the Ho- tel Metropole, Margate, on November 23rd. The room was in flames. Fox was arrested at the time and charged with fraud, but it is only now that a murder charge has been preferred. The inquest on Mrs. Fox resulted in a verdict of death through misadven- ture, but inquiries by the police caused the exhumation of the body and Sir Bernard Spilsbury, honorary patholo- gist to the Home Office, was able to prove that the woman died before the &nbsp; fire occurred. The woman was heavily insured against accident.
HEAVY GALE. IN ENGLISH CHANNEL. LONDON, January 12. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
HEAVY GALE. IN ENGLISH CHANNEL. LONDON, January 12. &nbsp; &nbsp; A 120 mile an hour gale is raging in the Channel and steamers are ex- periencing a rough passage. Assistance had to be sent to the Italian steamer Liana, which was in trouble off the South Goodwins. The seas are so heavy at Folkestone that the Channel fishing boats are un- able to enter the harbour and are being diverted to Dover. A boy was blown off the Ramsgate pier and drowned. Inland also it was one of the wildest nights in memory. Many trees and &nbsp; telegraph poles have been blown down. A woman was killed by a falling tree at Muswellhill. Another tree crushed on a charabane at Kingston, injuring five people.
BANNING CHRISTMAS. MOSCOW DEMONSTRATION. RIGA, January 1l. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
BANNING CHRISTMAS. MOSCOW DEMONSTRATION. RIGA, January 11. &nbsp; Demontrations against the celebra- tion of Christmas in the old style, which &nbsp; began some time ago, are claimed by the Soviet Press as being successful &nbsp; throughout the country. More than &nbsp; 30,000 adults and 10,000 children de- monstrated in front of Moscow churches with blasphemous effigies and hooted the processionists carrying tableaux. They concentrated in the square, where ikons were burned in bonfires. Crowds danced around a Christmas tree, containing effi- gies of notable persons, including the British Prime Minister (Mr. Mac- Donald), which were later consigned to the flames, one at a time.
EX-SOVIET OFFICIAL EMBASSY IN PARIS. MOSCOW, January 8. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
EX-SOVIET OFFICIAL. EMBASSY IN PARIS. MOSCOW, January 8. That women and excessive ambition had caused his downfall, was stated in the indictment at the trial in absentia of Bessedowski, a former official of the &nbsp; Soviet Embassy in Paris, on a charge of having stolen £3000 from the Em- bassy funds. The prosecution alleged that Besse- dowski had neglected his wife and his work and created numerous scandals. &nbsp; Roisenman stated in evidence that he merely went to Paris to investigate the Embassy's finance. Bessedowski ob- structed him and lied and finally fled. Previously he stole the Embassy's money, silver and crockery. Witness also alleged that one of the causes of the trouble was Bessedowski's pique, because he was not created an ambassa- dor. &nbsp; &nbsp; The accused's brother Jacob testified that the Soviet was not persecuting Bes- sedowski's family. &nbsp; Bessedowski was sentenced to ten years' imprisonment and his property was o...
"PARROT FEVER" SUDDEN OUTBREAK. NEW YORK, January 10. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
''PARROT FEVER'' SUDDEN OUTBREAK. NEW YORK, January 10. The health authorities are mystified &nbsp; at a sudden outbreak of psittacosis or ''parrot fever,'' cases, which have been reported throughout the country &nbsp; &nbsp; within the past week. &nbsp; The disease first appeared at Buenos Ayres, where an actress died of the complaint. It has now reached the United States. The unfamiliarity of physicians with the disease renders its treatment largely ineffective, and while there have been only a few deaths, it is now reported that virulent cases have occurred in the cities of Ohio, Maryland and Cali- fornia. Four cases were reported from Baltimore to-day.
