FUTURE OF THE FILM. COMMON AMERICAN PICTURES. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 2 May 1924
FUTURE OF THE FILM. COMMON AMERICAN PICTURES. Capt. Hubert Beaumont, F.R.G.S., has contributed to an English news paper an interesting article on the 'film as the great interpreter of life.' Speaking with the authority of one who has made a close study of picture production, its value as an entertainer, and as an aid to education, he exnlains that the All British campaign has come at a cri tical time in the history and develop ment of cinematography. Among the reasons advanced for the slump that recently occurred overseas, he expresses the opinion that up to the present cinemato graphy has been a 'luxury trade, in which few have ventured to experi ment, let alone plunge.' The cine ma, in consequence, has suffered ra ther through economy of necessity than of desire; and the- goose that laid the golden egg has been killed by charging high prices for admission. So far as the allegation that high prices of admission have had a dam aging effect on the industry is con cerned, one can hard...

MOTHER AND DAUGHTER A double tragedy, involving the death of a mother and her daughter, was discovered at Merewether on Monday, following the receipt of a letter by the Newcastle police.

The premises were locked, and on entering through a window the j-olice found the bodies of the mother and | daughter lying on a single bed in a front bedroom. The bodies were each clad in night attire, and death appeared to have taken place some time previously. There were no signs of a struggle. On a single bed along side was a glass tumbler, which contained a small quantity of sedi ment. On the top of a small cupboard in the room was found a note, which read: 'Bury us as we are.

A Destructive Dingo. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 2 May 1924
A Destructive Dingo. Owing to the ravages of a dingo amongst the flocks of settlers along the Merri Merri Crek, resulting in heavy losses, a drive was organised, and over 40 horsemen took part, but without success. A bonus was then oei.ided upon, and £40 subscribed, which was offered for the dingo's scalp. A party was formed to watch at night from ambushed positions, and on the third night the animal ventured within rang? of one of the shooters on Mr. J. D. McCalinan's Pretoria property. After being shot j he struggled away for about a quar- i ter of a mile, and was found dead next morning. It was of the true dingo type, the skin measuring 6ft. 8in. in length. The biggest loser was Mr. A. Patrick, who counted 120 sheep since shearing which he knows had been killed on his property by this dingo.

FEDERAL PARLIAMENT. MR. THEODORE WILL CONTEST HERBERT. Mr. Theodore is to enter Federal politics. 'The Guardian' says this an annouuceinent was made at a smoke concert on Saturday night at the Trades Hall by the Acting Premier, Mr. Mcoormack. . Though there have been rumors of Mr. Theodore's intention to enter the Federal sphere, the definite an nouncement came as a dramatic sur prise. There were a few cries of 'Oh!' but generally the news was received in silence. Mr. McCormack stated that he had received from the Premier a message that he had dccidcd to stand for a Federal scat. The Acting-Premier got busy immediately, and sounded the Labor organisation in the Her bert electorate. An interchange of cables led to the acceptance of the offer of nomination for that elector ate.

STATE EVADES FEDERAL LAW. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 6 May 1924
STATE EVADES FEDERAL LAW. The Melbourne correspondent of 'The Guardian' says the Minister who takes the place of Mr. Gibson, P.M.G. (he left for Stockholm yes terday) will be confronted with ra ther perplexing problems. The atti tude of the Government towards a certain consultation in Tasmania has for many years been that of the os trich. Now, the Tasnianian Govern ment has entered into an agreement with the 'certain consultation' to run a lottery for charity, and to over come the difficulty of the Federal postal regulation, which is supposed to prevent delivery of lottery tickets, it has been arranged to receive all mail matter at State Treasury. The Tasmanian Treasurer has announced this decision, and the Commonwealth Government will accept a 12i per cent. tax. Question on Saturday re garding what action the Post Office would take, Mr. Brown, Secretary to ; the Postal Department, said that per sonally he would be very reluctant to refuse to deliver the mail to a State Treasurer, b...
STATE FINANCES. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 6 May 1924
STATE FINANCES. Though Sir Arthur Cocks has an increase of £1,134,262 in the Slate revenue to date, he has still to col lect during the remaining three months £8,589,890 to realise his Bud get estimate for the year. but hnancial authorities have no doubt that the estimate will be con siderably exceeded. The collcct'ons for April amounted to £2,720,797, so that if the income for the remaining months of the financial year aver ages that amount, the Treasurer will have nearly the £8,589,230 necessary to reach the total upon which he based his Budget calculations. As a matter of fact the receipts will be swelled by the bulk of the income tax, payments for which will fall due in June. If the expenditure is kept within the Treasurer's figures, the surplus of £1,300,000 realised last year (out of which the navment of over half a million was made to the Wheat Pool) will probably be exceeded, j LOAN POSITION. Loan expenditure is proceeding as if Sir Arthur Cocks had never been struck by pani...

At the Goulburn sittings of the Supreme Court on Monday, before his Honor, Mr. Justice James, Ed ward Charles Preddy was arraigned on two indictments, and in each case pleaded guilty. j The charges were: — Stealine on January 27, at Robertson, a mare be longing to Charles William Rutland; on January 31, at Mittagong, a sulky, two -overcoats and sweater, the pro perty of John Bede Ryan. On the second indictment there was a fur ther count of receiving. Preddy had a criminal history. 'That you first stole a horse and tlion later took a sulky shows that your act must have been a premedi atcd one,' said the Judge to accused. His Honor sentenced Preddy to two years' hard labor on each charge, and as in the case of the nrsvimts offender, left the election of the place of custody to the discretion of the Comptroller-General. He point- 1 od out, however, that as accused was once temporarily insane, it was quite probable that he was still weak mind ed; and it would be advi...
