FATAL CRASH. YOUTHFUL PILOT. PARIS, January 10. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
FATAL CRASH YOUTHFUL PILOT. &nbsp; PARIS, January 10. Two airmen at the Istres aviation school, observing a 20-year-old pilot in difficulties, jumped into another aero- plane and soared to his assistance. Not only did the youth fatally crash, but his succorers had hardly risen 300 ft. when the wing broke off, bringing down the aeroplane in flames. One of the oc- cupants was burned to death, and the other, who parachuted in mid-air, was &nbsp; seriously injured.

REPARATIONS EXECUTION OF YOUNG PLAN PROVISION IF GERMANY DEFAULTS. THE HAGUE, January 8. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
REPARATIONS EXECUTION OF YOUNG PLAN PROVISION IF GERMANY DEFAULTS. THE HAGUE, January 8. The most important event of to-day's reparations conference was the meeting of the French delegation, at which a provisional clause was drafted, dealing with sanctions in the event of Germany's de- fault under the Young Plan. This was approved by the British and Italian delegations and sent to the Germans. The clause provides for a judicial definition of default, after which The Hague Court will determine if any default is wilful. It is understood, furthermore, that if Germany fails to respect the decision of The Hague Court the Treaty of Versailles will again become operative, implying the re-occupation of territory. The Franco-German incident ended, following the issue of a French com- munique at the instance of the Ger- mans. It stated that yesterday's dis- cussions were without incident and were most cordial throughout. M. Tardieu pointed out to the Ger- mans that a too meticulous examina- t...
RAND REPORTER. COMMITTED TO PRISON. JOHANNESBURG, January 8. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
RAND REPORTER. COMMITTED TO PRISON. JOHANNESBURG, January 8. The chief magistrate has committed the reporter, Louw to prison for eight days, the sentence to be suspended for a week to allow an appeal to be lodged to give Louw time to reconsider his position. Louw stated that he considered that sweeps were no more immoral than bets on horse racing. Consequently, he had not hesitated to give a pledge of secrecy. It was vital for the pur- poses of journalists' work, he added, that they should strictly observe con- fidences, but it was not only a utili- tarian necessity, it was a matter of personal honour. It was essential to preserve the professional standard of integrity. (Lotteries are illegal in the South African Union, but a good deal of gambling of this nature is said to take place. The ''Daily Mail,'' in the course of a campaign designed to expose the lax administration of the law, gave a detailed description of the drawing of a lottery in the Johannesburg hotel. The Minister for...

KNITTED A JERSEY. FOUND A HUSBAND. LONDON, January 8. As an outcome of a romance which brought her into touch with Henry Tindall, a flourishing farmer in New Zealand, Miss Eleanor Major, daughter of a Flamborough fisherman, is going to New Zealand in February. Miss Major is a well known jersey knitter, and a newspaper mentioning her reached Tindall, who wrote asking her to knit him a Flamborough jersey. Other correspondence and an exchange of photographs followed, culminating in an engagement ring from Tindall, who is farming near Auckland.
FAMILY MOURN. LOSS OF THEIR ELDEST SON. LONDON, January 12. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
FAMILY MOURN. LOSS OF THEIR ELDEST SON. LONDON, January 12. Lord Stalbridge and Lady Stal- bridge, with other members of their family, were present at St. Mary's Church, near Shaftesbury, at a me- morial service for their eldest son, the late Captain Hugh Grosvenor, who lost his life when the seaplane Widgeon II. crashed in Port Philip Bay. The con- gregation included many of the old ten- ants of the estates of Shaftesbury and Stalbridge and adjacent villages, where the late Captain Grosvenor was most popular. The hymns, one of which was ''The Time Is Short,'' were chosen by Lady Stalbridge. would submit the desired concrete pro- posals within two hours and stating that he would send the Under-secretary to Geneva instead of going himself.

PROSPECTOR'S PLIGHT. UP A TREE. INNISFAIL, January 10. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
PROSPECTOR'S PLIGHT. UP A TREE. INNISFAIL, January 10. Four gold prospectors were marooned &nbsp; in a tree for seven hours by flood waters last Tuesday. Just as the party was going to bed it was discovered that the flood waters were rising at an alarming rate, and the water soon entered the hut. The men made their way to a pine tree, which they climbed. The water rose to about 5 ft. below the branch of the tree and stayed at that level for about an hour. So gradual was the subsidence of the water that the men remained in the tree for nearly seven hours. Next morning an attempt was made to leave by swimming the river. A log was secured for the purpose, but the at- tempt failed, and the men only regained the bank with difficulty. After an exciting time the party managed to cross a deep creek, which was running fast, almost sweeping one man away. The four men reached Innisfail to- day, having lost all their belongings, but they were little the worse for their experience.
FRENCH NAVAL FORCES. FOUR NEW STATIONS. PARIS, January 9. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
FRENCH NAVAL FORCES. FOUR NEW STATIONS. PARIS, January 9. A new official disposition of the French naval forces create four new &nbsp; stations, namely, in the Pacific, in the Indian Ocean, on the West Coast of Africa, and the Antilles. Each of them henceforth will have its own permanent division corresponding with the British squadrons in China and the West In- dies. This decision inaugurates a new stage in the French naval policy, as the forces in these areas up till now have been made up of obsolete units.
CLUNG TO WRECKAGE. TWO FISHERMEN RESCUED. BRISBANE, January 12. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
CLUNG TO WRECKAGE. TWO FISHERMEN RESCUED. BRISBANE, January 12. After clinging for several hours to the wreckage of their 30ft. motor boat, two well-known fishermen, T. Gill and H. Moore, were rescued just in time at daylight on Sunday. The men left on a fishing trip on Friday night, but owing to a miscalcu- lation of time they struck the reef on Yellow Patch, off Moreton Island, on Saturday morning. During the early hours of Sunday morning the tide and the waves batter- ed the boat and a heavy ice chest on board was knocked from side to side with such force that it rent parts of the hull asunder. Before long the boat was a total wreck, and the men spent several anxious hours. They were res- cued by another boat just as the tide was nearing its full height, making it difficult for the men to cling to the wreckage. The launch was valued at £200. The engine and the wireless set were sal- vaged. &nbsp; &nbsp;

The Aramac country to the west of Pelican Creek comprises high class un- dulating, well-grassed downs, lightly to &nbsp; well timbered, with gidyea and boree, &nbsp; with a small area of claypans.

HEROIC ISLANDER SAVES TEN LIVES. FIGHT WITH BOISTEROUS SEAS. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
HEROIC ISLANDER SAVES TEN LIVES. FIGHT WITH BOISTEROUS SEAS. A stirring tale of the sea is told by a party of fishers who got back safely to Cairns after a strenuous struggle with the elements. The hero of the tale is emphatically Captain Pedro, a native of Thursday Island, who displayed qualities of seamanship which quite equalled any saga of the seas in which Northern Europeans figure. By his skill, courage and devotion he brought the party safely through apparently insuperable difficulties, and took them back to Cairns without mishap. CAIRNS, January 8. &nbsp; '' Nothing but the devotion and mag- nificent seamanship of Captain Pedro, a Thursday Islander, second mate of the beche-de-mer lugger Waikato, saved ten of us from death on the Great Barrier &nbsp; &nbsp; Reef in a storm on Sunday night," &nbsp; said Mr. H. Jorgensen, a member of a fishing party of ten, who left Cairns &nbsp; last Friday morning and for whose safety fears had been en...

EMBARGO ON STUD SHEEP. BRISBANE, January 8. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
EMBARGO ON STUD SHEEP. BRISBANE, January 8. Captain Weinholt, who returned from a hunting trip in Africa to-day, de- clared that the embargo on the export of stud sheep to South Africa was in- iquitous and should be removed. It showed a miserable and paltry spirit with which to meet competition. That it should have received any support from the pastoralists themselves show- ed how far the manly spirit of enter- prise and resource among them had been killed by the cursed policy of loans, with its allied evils of bonuses and guarantees for all and sundry. In regard to natural conditions, every thing was overwhelmingly in favour of Australia. The real trouble was that politicians had, by extravagant and wasteful expenditure, driven Australia into a financial and economic boghole and thought they could now pull them- selves out by putting a stone in front of the other fellow's wheel.
RAILWAY APPEAL. EMERALD, January 10. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
RAILWAY APPEAL. BY PUMPER W. ELLIS. EMERALD, January 10. The Railway Appeal Board commenced an appeal this morning by pumper W. Ellis, Comet, against his reduction to the position of labourer at Rockhamp- ton. The case was heard before the P.M. (Mr. W. Harris), Mr. G. Wilkinson (Commissioner's representative), and Mr. G. B. Wilkinson (employees' repre- sentative). Mr. V. Hall appeared for the Crown. Mr. J. D. Murray (Messrs. Swanwick and Murray ) , solicitors, Rock- hampton, for the appellant. In outlining the case, Mr. Hall said that the appellant held a position of pumper at the Comet loco, supply tank, which holds 30,000 gallons of water. His duty was to pump sufficient water to meet requirements within the usual working hours. He noticed that Ellis was working a fair amount of overtime and Sunday duty and the loco foreman at Emerald was instructed to see whether it was justified. Subsequently Foreman Betts visited Comet, went into the mat- ter with Ellis and gave certain instruc...
R.S.S.I.L.A. BARCALDINE BRANCH. BARCALDINE, January 9. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
R.S.S.I.L.A. BARCALDINE BRANCH. BARCALDINE, January 9. The R.S.S.I.L.A. held very enthuias- tic annual and general meetings last night, the proceedings not terminating until midnight. The President's report showed that the past year had been very successful. The branch is about £60 in credit, while the financial membership had in- creased from 40 to 55. During the year relief had been extended to 80 Diggers. Reference was made to the success- ful Anzac Day celebration, when 160 wreaths were placed on the memorial and a largely attended service held in the Shire Hall at night. The Armis- tice Day dinner provided by the ladies' committee, was a great success and was largely attended. The New Year's Day sports netted just on £100 and the League is now in a sound financial position. The sum of £100 had been placed at fixed de- posit. Mr. R. J. Hale was elected President vice Mr. O. C. Whitelaw, who would not accept another term, stating that the position should go round. Mr. W. H. Curti...
LAND SETTLEMENT. NEW CONDITIONS. BRISBANE, January 9. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
LAND SETTLEMENT. NEW CONDITIONS. BRISBANE, January 9. The Minister for Lands (Mr. Deacon), &nbsp; in the course of an interview on the Land Act passed last session, stated to- &nbsp; &nbsp; day that the new laws operated from January 1st and, therefore, were now in force. Speaking of the ringbarking regula- tions, under which the Government had proposed to advance settlers up to £200,000 per annum for three years at an interest rate of 1 to 2 per cent, the Minister said that, owing to the Federal Government's action in securing the sus- pension of the migration agreement, the ringbarking scheme would have to stand in abeyance, as the money was to come from the Imperial Government under &nbsp; agreement. The Minister added that the new con- ditions of settlement had been made much more attractive, and every settler could now convert his holding from per- petual lease to freehold and the form of tenure would be optional. Matters dealing with the Upper B...
