(Published by arrangement). A Law For the Poor--Bul Not For the Rich [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 23 July 1925

(Published by arrangement). A Law For the Poor--Bul Not For the Rich In an article on Prohibition as it operates in the United States the New York " World " expresses the opinion that " the curse of it is its inequality in operation. It makes for hypocrisy and class hatred. It is commonly thought that these captains of industry and tinan cial leaders who think Prohibition a good thing for the.poor and middle classes, and who had their whisky be fore Prohibition, have their whisky now. It is generally believed that when they advocated Prohibition for the little fellow, they had no notion of observingr it themselves. And it is unquestionably true that as long as these men can get their whisky without difficulty, and because they can afford it they will publicly continue their pious pose as champions of the law. " We shall never know what'Amer ica really thinks of Prohibition until it becomes absolutely impossible for the richest as well as the poorest to get prohibited liquor; and whe...

Arrival of American Fleet SYDNEY, Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 23 July 1925

Arrival of American Fleet SYDNEY, Thursday. The arrival of eight of America's greatest battleships this morning in Sydney Harbour made a spectacle which will long be remembered. The dim shadows of the shapes of great vessels were seen from Coogee at 6.30. It was a quarter to ten, half an hour before schedule time that the leading battleship, California, passed between the Heads amid roa.s of applause from massed crowds on the deadlands. Delightful weather prevailed. The sky was cloudless but bracing winds made matters a little unpleasant for the crowds which thronged ferry boats, tugs, launches and excursion steamers and multitudes of other small craft which lined both sides of the Harbor. ,The spectacle was in all respects similar to that which marked the arrival of the British Service Squad ron and the Prince of Wales. The tense curiosity of the crowd somehow seemed to place restraint upon cheering, but when the battle ships drew near enough to the plea sure craft to receive their...
