Isa Mines, Ltd., a silver-lead proposition in North Queensland, for the year ended June 30, 1932, issued in November last, did not contain a statement of ac- counts in the period coveied by the accounts, as the directors explain that "part of the plant was put into opera- tion for tuning up and for prcduction on a limited scale while the comple- tion of the remainder of the plant was in progress.

It would be practically im- possible for any power to land an army on the Northern shores, and march hundreds of miles through waterless regions to the centres of population. "FEDERAL NEGLECT." Referring to the magnificent pas- tures of the Barkley Tableland, Mr. Williams said that a great deal of that vast area still remained unde- veloped, owing to tho maladministra- tion of the bureaucracy o...
