RELIEF FROM RHEU- MATISM. AN EXCELLENT TREATMENT. The treatment of rheumatism re- quires something more than merely rubbing the affected parts with lini- ments and oils. In some cases, relief from pain may be temporarily achieved, but sooner or later the aches return, and, unhappily, in a more severe form. It is generally understood that rheu- matism is due to some poisonous sub- stance in the blood, and not until this &nbsp; is driven out of the system can any permanent relief be expected. It is frequently found that the sufferer has thin, devitalised blood, and the general system is run-down. Because of their blood-building in- gredients, Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have proved of great benefit in the treatment of rheumatism and its allied complaint, lumbago, in thousands of cases. The action of these pills is to create rich, red blood, purifying and in- creasing it, and aiding the elimination of poisons from the system. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills will do you a tremendous amoun...

REPARATIONS AGREEMENT REACHED ALL FINANCIAL POINTS. THE HAGUE, January 13. The reparations conference has reached agreement on all the finan- cial points, notably the moratorium and dates of payments. Germany will pay on the 15th of each month in foreign curren- cies, recovering in reichsmarks at the end of the month. The moratorium is in accordance with the prepared text, the amount thus far becoming immediately payable at the end of the period of postponement. A special advisory committee will advise whether a postponement is necessary. Dr. Schacht, president of the Reich - bank, to-day supplied the conference &nbsp; with a letter, reserving his decision re- garding the Reichbank's co-operation in the scheme for the bank of interna- tional settlement, which was interpreted as refusing co-operation. The Big Six then discussed the Ger- man delegates' alternative proposals that another group of German banks should deposit £5,000,000 interest free at the bank of international ...

STAGE CELEBRITY. LEAVING AUSTRALIA. MELBOURNE, January 12. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
STAGE CELEBRITY. LEAVING AUSTRALIA. MELBOURNE, January 12. Fearing ruin by the operation of the Arbitration Court awards and severe taxation, Mr. Frank Neil, the actor- manager, who has been leasing the King's Theatre from J. C. Williamson, Ltd, has decided to leave Australia. He intends to take a full company of Australians, with whom he has been associated for many years in the pro- duction of farce, to South Africa. On Friday, Mr. Neil gave a week's notice to every member of his com- pany. He said he could see no pros- pects of being able to continue his pro- ductions without suffering large losses. '' State Arbitration Court awards,'' he said, '' have thrown upon theatre man- agements the whole burden of losses which have followed the talkie boom.'' Gramophone records of the voices of famous French singers, actors, states- men, and other public people are stored away in a museum in Paris. The col- lection was begun eighteen years ago.

MT. ISA. BRISBANE, January 8. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
MT. ISA. BRISBANE, January 8. Questioned to-day regarding the re- quest from the Townsville Chamber of Commerce that the Government should stop the picketing of hotels at Mt Isa, the Premier (Mr. Moore) said- to-day that the Crown Law Office had advised him that action would be taken if there was evidence of intimidation or violence, but in view of the police re- ports that no such evidence was avail- able there was nothing on which to base such action. Furthermore, he had received no complaints from business people or hotelkeepers at Mt. Isa. &nbsp; There was a section of the Code which provided for action against people conspiring to prevent persons from free and lawful eexrcise of their trade, but there appeared to be no con- spiracy, and in any event conspiracy was a difficult offence to prove. How- ever, he was having the whole matter thoroughly sifted to see what could be done to end the unsatisfactory posi- tion. &nbsp; &nbsp;

SHEARING POINTS. BRISBANE, January 8. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
SHEARING POINTS. BRISBANE. January 8. Three questions from the industrial magistrate at Winton were submitted &nbsp; to the Board of Trade and Arbitration to-day to secure an interpretation of certain clauses of the shearing industry award. Mr. Justice Webb and Mr. Dunstan were on the bench. Mr. W. Riordan, appeared for the A.W.U. and Mr. A. Coldham for the United Graziers' Association. The interpretations were in respect of the clause which obliges the em- ployer or contractor to pen sheep four hours before the start of the shearing. The questions were :— (1) If the sheep have not been yarded for four hours, can an employer de- mand that the shearers try the sheep? (2) If the sheep have not been yarded for four hours, can the shearers refuse to shear the sheep until four hours ex- pire without first shearing two sheep and taking a vote as required ? (3) If the sheep have been yarded for four hours. can shearers, under the wet sheep clause, still declare the sheep to be too ...

A FORTUNATE ESCAPE. ROWING BOATS CAPSIZE. BRISBANE, January 14. Eleven persons, the majority of whom were children, and one a baby in arms, had a fortunate escape when two row- ing boats capsized outside the treacher- ous bar of the Maroochy River to-day. Two families named M'Calloom and Adams occupied the boats, which were swpet over the bar by a swift running current. Two young men in a motor boat went to their assistance and com- menced to tow them to safety. When returning on the southern side of the bar in shallow water the towline parted &nbsp; and both boats capsized. Life savers and others went to the rescue of those in the water, and all were brought safely ashore.

LABOUR DEFENCE ARMY FIRST BATTALION PARADE MINERS DRILLED BY FORMER SOLDIERS. SYDNEY, January 14. The first battalion of the Labour defence army paraded in Aber- &nbsp; dare Park, Cessnock district, to-day. It was composed of about 1000 miners drilled by former soldiers. The instructors insisted on strict discipline, and the men were given orders with all the vigour and seriousness characteristic of the regular army. The men showed the keenest interest in the operations, which were watched by many women outside the park. The men were unarmed. The police patrolled the park, but no ac- tion was taken to stop the parade. It is understood that another bat- talion is to be formed on Thursday. Mass picketing of the South Mait- land mines is to be carried out to-mor- row morning.

HIGH COURT APPEAL. BEEBY AWARD. MELBOURNE, January 13. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
HIGH COURT APPEAL. BEEBY AWARD. MELBOURNE. January 13. When the High Court resumed the hearing of the coalowners' appeal against the Beeby award to-day, Mr. Justice Dixon said they were hearing a lot of detail at very considerable length. The question was whether it was not possible for Mr. Browne to get to grips more quickly with the case. He added that one thing that really mattered was whether the New South Wales Govern- ment did or did not employ unionists amongst those who answered advertise- ments calling for labour to work the mines. Mr. Browne : The point is whether they offered employment to unionists. Addressing Mr. Browne, Mr. Justice Starke said that apparently the first suggestion made that the Govern ment should subsidise coal production in Newcastle was made without any constitutional rights. It was apparent- ly done in a hurry without any con- sideration. Mr. Browne said that such payment would have been no more unconstitu- tional than hundreds of other payments made...

BARCALDINE FIRE. STARTED IN BAMBOOS. BARCALDINE, January 13. The fire alarm sounded this morning and created a great stir in the town. The fire was amongst a clump of bam- boos at the rear of the Rectory, St. Peter's Church. It appears that Dr. Cuselberg was burning rubbish in his yard in the vicinity and the fire spread into the Rectory grounds, igniting dried pampas grass. It made a big blaze, &nbsp; but the fire brigade, which turned out &nbsp; promptly, soon extinguished the fire. Many outbuildings were in close proxi- mity to the fire also the Rectory gar- &nbsp; age, but little damage was done.
FEDERAL INTENTION. ABOLISH STATE PARLIAMENTS. SYDNEY, January 9. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
FEDERAL INTENTION. ABOLISH STATE PARLIAMENTS. SYDNEY. January 9. &nbsp; The Assistant Minister for Industry (Mr. Blakeley), speaking at Condobolin, said that in all probability a referen- dum would be taken this year by the Federal Government, asking for power to abolish State Parliaments and giving full and complete power to the Federal Parliament. This would mean, if ap- &nbsp; proved by the people, the devolution of power to shires, municipalities and pro- vinces. The Federal Government would &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; control national railways and water- ways, but land, local railways and local waterways would be local matters and would be administered by people within the shire, municipality or province. LABOUR AGITATION. SYDNEY, January 9. Since the return of the Federal Go- vernment there has been a persistent agitation on the part of Labour for a Federal referendum on the abolition of the State Parliaments. More than 12 branch...
