PREY OF PESTS. Tobacco Culture. GAIN BY EXPERIENCE. TOWNSVILLE, August 29. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 30 August 1933
PREY OF PESTS. Tobacco Culture. GAIN BY EXPERIENCE. TOWNSVILLE, August 29. Willie sugar ,was practically free from pests, tobacco, although It con- tained poison, seemed to be the prt»y of everything that flew, crawled, and crept, and growers had to be continu- ally on the watch. This was a statement made before the Tobacco Investigation Committee, at Townsville to-day by Mr. E. W. Ford, of Home Hill. Mr. Ford, in reply to questions, said he had had 22 years' experience in the sugar industry. In that time he had seen many improvements in faim methods which had increased effici- ency, and he was of the opinion that in tobacco culture the expérience gained each year should be nut into effect at the beginning of each suc- cessive season, so that there would be a gradual improvement in tobacco culture.
SUSPICIOUS FIRES. NUMBER DISTURBING. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 30 August 1933
SUSPICIOUS FIRES. NUMBER DISTURBING. The number of suspicious fires was rather disturbing, said the chairman of the Metropolitan Pire Brigades Board (Mr. W. B. Denmead) at the monthly meeting held yesterday. The chief officer (Mr. W. Younger) had reported that several of the out- breaks classed as serious had occur- red under suspicious circumstances. One had taken place at 2 a.m. The report had stated that where fires had occurred in unoccupied houses about midnight they could not be re- garded as other than suspicious. It was added that no fewer than nine of the fires classed as slight or very slight could be put down to carelessness, and it was probable that lighted matches thrown down were the cause of seven outbreaks. The total number of calls during the month had been 35, and it was a coincidence that the whole of the 10 stations had received calls-a very unusual event. The chairman said there had been a lot of suspicious fires during the last 12 months, and it was remark- abl...
FAKED CLAIMS. Insurance Frauds. SECOND CASE LIKELY. LONDON, August 29. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 30 August 1933
FAKED CLAIMS. Insurance Frauds. SECOND CASE LIKELY. LONDON, August 29, In consequence of the recent fire in- surance conspiracy case, the London insurance companies have appointed a secret committee of senior officials to form an unofficial criminal investiga- tion department of insurance through- out the world for the purpose of stop- ping bogus claims. The "Daily Herald" learns that clues which were discovered during the ' recent case led the detectives to sus- pect tlie existence of several more fire raising organisations. A close watch has been kept on the movements of a number of men who are prominent in London business circles, besides some whose names are known in public I life. "If the inquiries result in a prosecu- tion," continues the "Daily Herald," "the charge-sheet will be one of the most sensational that has ever been seen in an English court, but the next ste.i is likely to be the launching of a case against a group of defendants outside London." Meanwhile the fire-ra...

CASES REPORTED. ALSATIAN AS KILLER. GRAZIERS' EVIDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 30 August 1933
CASES REPORTED. ALSATIAN AS KILLER. GRAZIERS' EVIDENCE. "The sterilisation or destruction of Alsatians has long been advocated by (he Queensland Cattle Growers' Asso- ciation," said Mr. C. A. Jacob (secre- tary) yesterday afternoon, "and that attitude is strongly supported by a great deal of evidence I have recently collected that the Alsatian is a killer." Mr. Jacob said that authentic in- formation he had got from Victoria included the following cases: In September, 1931, nine breeding ewes, owned by Mr. J. H. Plant, butcher, of Kyabram, were killed by a female Alsatian, which was seen throwing the sheep down and tearing at their throats. On December 14 of the same year more than 20 stud sheep, belonging to Mr.'iR. Bullen, were killed or wounded so that they had to be destroyed, two Alsatians being responsible. The attack took place in a paddock at Essendon. In August, 1932, Mr. K. Gullock, of Bal- larat, found an Alsatian and a grey- hound worrying his sheep. This year, said Mr. ...
LESSONS BY POST. SCHOOL FOR MINERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 30 August 1933
LESSONS BY POST. SCHOOL FOR MINERS. It is the hope of the Minister for Mines (Mr. J. Stopford) that shortly a correspondence school for miners will be established. This should lead ultimately to the re-establishment of a School of Mines. At present the Minister is in com- munication with the Minister for Edu- cation (Mr. P. Cooper) on the sub- ject. Mr. Stopford is of the opinion that with so many men engaged nowadays in mining such a school would prove of material benefit. It could bo controlled either by the Uni- versity or the Education Department, and in addition to lessons through the post on mining subjects suitable lectures could be given periodically by the Government geologists when visit- ing mining districts. For many years there was a School of Mines at Charters Towers, but with the decay 'of that field the school was closed down.
Forced Spending. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 30 August 1933
Forced Spending. Professor Raymond Moley has quickly tired of his position as chief of President Roosevelt's "brain trust." For two years he has had an active hand in every- thing that Mr. Roosevelt has decided or planned, but it was evident during the sittings of the World Conference that the Presi- dent and the Professor were look- ing at the same matter in very different ways. And no sooner does Professor Moley give up "brain trust" work than another member of the trust puts forward a proposal for compelling people to spend money instead of saving it. But how can you make people spend money if they "do not want to spend it? We can imagine the President asking that question. The Professor, for again it is a professor's scheme, replies : "Issue a new batch of currency every month, and declare that the currency of the preceding month worthless at the banks and stores.'1 This plan is said by its proposer to be proof against economic experts and reaction- aries. So the dollar has to d...
Sound Borrowing. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 30 August 1933
Sound Borrowing. . There are signs to encourage the hope that relief of unemploy- ment in the early future will be assisted by "more constructive public spending. The loan of £55,000 at 4 per cent offered to and accepted by the Brisbane City Council for extension of the revenue-producing services of its electricity undertaking is a happy augury. The terms of the loan are the lowest yet obtained by tlie council on the public market. In Brisbane there are many fields .for the productive investment of cheap loan money, provided that man- agement and labour co-operate to ensure that borrowed money purchases for the community the maximum amount of worth-while work. It is far better that the City Council should use loan money in this way than that it should incur larger obligations towards the Government to employ relief labour under conditions thal make it next to impossible for work of durable value to be under- taken. Fortunately the Government is now coming to realise that it has a re...
Motor Insurance. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 30 August 1933
Motor Insurance. The Assistant Treasurer (Mr. F. A. Cooper) is about to present to the Cabinet an official report on the question of compelling motor- ists to take out insurance policies against accidents in which pedes- trians are involved. The Royal Automobile Club of Queensland is opposed to any scheme of com- pulsory insurance, but favours the "safety financial responsibilicy law" as it operates in the United States and Canada. Yesterday we published a statement by Mr. T- H. Bishop in which he called atten- tion to the fact that in Eng- land "in spite of the tradi- tional repugnance of John Bull to compulsion" no motor vehicle is allowed on any thorough- fare without insurance, and that neither the Royal Automobile Club nor the Automobile Association expressed objection to that enact- ment. To the argument that reck- less drivers would probably be more reckless if they were covered by insurance Mr. Bishop replies that the insurance offices might safely be left to attend to that ...
