Bush Nursing. BRISBANE, Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 9 March 1923
Bush Nursing. &nbsp; BRISBANE, Thursday. "One of the reasons why I am convinced &nbsp; &nbsp; that settlement in our interior spaces is &nbsp; not more rapid is the impossibility of &nbsp; establishing homes there, with women and &nbsp; children, is because of the fear that in &nbsp; case of accident or sickness medical or &nbsp; nursing aid would not be available". The &nbsp; Mayor of Brisbane, Alderman Diddama, &nbsp; made this statement in an address at the &nbsp; annual meeting of the Bush Nursing As- &nbsp; sociation held yesterday. The committee &nbsp; &nbsp; in their report appealed to the Queensland Public for greater support and interest in &nbsp; the work of the association, whose object &nbsp; was to provide duly qualified nurses in &nbsp; those parts of the State where medical &nbsp; services are insufficient. &nbsp;

THE TRAMWAYS. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 16 March 1923
THE TRAMWAYS. y Vf > The Ti amways Trust is not unexpectedly meeting with many temptations but is re " solutely pursuing what -it, and the public too, consider the straight and undevlating course. All sorts of pressure has been brought -io bear on members individulaly as well as collective in the effort to secure free passes for different kinds and classes of people but the Trust has been adamant pn this respect. It has put its foot down a equally firmly pn all applications for mon-^ etary grants, on the grounds that public' money was being handled and should not " be wrongfully paid away. Even the Royal National Association was turned down in this respect, though It-was the custom of, th* Tramways Company to make a dona- tion of-£25 to the Association. The Trust argued in this particular instance that though the Annual Exhibition brought grist to the Trust mill by largely increasing the traffic, still it wa the Trust's trams which brought the thousands of people to the Exhibitio...

THE RATEPAYERS BURDEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 16 March 1923
THE RATEPAYERS BURDEN. , "? ^ .The City'Council is among the Local - Authorities who while maintaining the old ' rate impost, has increased its revenue by increasing the valuations. Ratepayers are becoming very angry in consequence as in many instances it means an increase in the Muncicipal impost an increase in State and Federal Land Tax and a very large increase .> in Water rates. So far ae the latter are concerned, the increase in , valuations has come at a most inopportune time, as the Water Board has just adopted a new sys- tem of rating which in itself means doub- ling and even trebling last year's rates in certain sectiona of the City. The City Fin- ance Committee according to the dictum of the Chairman have taken up the posi- tion that increasing the valuations means making the city progress. At any rate he says that any man who condemns an in- crease in valuation is condemning the pro- gress of the City. It is doubtful, however, if this will be the viewpoint of the alrea...
