TUESDAY, MARCH 30, 1915. Current Topics. Parliament.-Parliament has been further prorogued till the end of April, and, on account of the Premiers' Conference, the probability is that it will not meet .till late in May. Evrery week's respite from the wrangle that is going on in the ranks of" the party is welcome. But possibly matters may.clear up before " the people's _repre sentatives"' are . summoned " for the despatchi of busine'ss." * * * * .Medical Supervision. - The medical officials are mak ing a bold bid for' the super vision of the health. of the people.

THE BAND AND THE SHOW. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 30 March 1915
THE BAND AND .THE SHOW. To THs EDITOB. SIR ,-In a report of a meeting of the.Queaubeyan P. & A. Associa tion, appearing in your last issue, I noticed a resolution that was, carried in reference to the Queanbeyan Town Band, the outcome of which requires comprehensive emphasis. It appears that the band furnished the show committee with a tender of £6 zo/. for the use of their services at the show and, in considering the tender, the committee evidently thought it a little excessive, consequently it was decided to ask the band to play for the paltry remuneration of £3/3/3 In replying to this, request, the band intimated that the offer could not be accepted under rules which came intb force on March z. The reply caused some uncomplimentary re marks and expressions of Indigna tion at the committee meeting of the association, which, in my opinion, were unwarranted; and when your numerous fair-thinking readers be. come cognisant of the circumstances, I feel convinced the criticism l...

The other Queanbeyan judges were also thanked. Mr. Litchfield ex pressed his intention of being present at the next Queanbeyan show, and also of sending along some exhibits. Mr. C. J.

Correspondence. Wa do not necessarily identify ourselves .with the opinions expressed by our corres pondents. THE BAND AND THE SHOW. To Tuz EDITOR Sis,-On behalf and by authority of the Town Band, we have much pleasure in pen ning a reply to the uncalled-for remarks and resolution passed at the last meeting of the P. & A. Association as reported in your is sue of the 26th. The bandsmen cannot but help feeling put out at the attitude taken up by two of our vice-presidents, Mr. Wicks and Mr. Morgan, in making the remarks and supporting the resolution condemning the band for their action in not accepting three guineas to play at the show. Had these two gentlemen, as officials of the band, taken the trouble to.ascertain the true facts of the case, everything would have worked smoothly and all this uproar would have been saved. We also think that it would be far better in future, when the -P.- & A. As sociation have any business to transact with the band, that tha.busines...

PRIME HEREFORDS. YrST RDAY morning Mr. C. H. Mc Keahuie, J.P., of Booroomba, who is noted throughout the Commonwealth for his breed of pure Hereford cattle, trucked 63 magnificent" bul locks to Riverstone, Sydney, the pqr chasers being Messrs. B. Richardson and Co., of. Riverstone, who have bought them for slaughtering pur poses. An opportunity was afforded a representative of this journal to In spect the consignment-a very even lot indeed, of good breed, .onebrand, and all bred on the Booroomba estate. The carcases will easily average nine cwt., and their condition at a season like the present speaks volumes for the nutritive grasses of Booroomba, and especially of its-irrigated areas, of which the pick are close around the homestead. Besides our repres entative,' there were several other gentlemen who watched the operation of trucking; and these without a dis sentient, and all having practical knowledge of what constitutes prime bullocksof market quality, declared that the animial...
WELCOME RAIN AT LAST. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 30 March 1915
WELCOME RAIN AT LAST. Since the 22nd February up to last night, a period of over five weeks, no rain whatever had fallen in and around Queanbeyan, and but sparsely here and there elsewhere in the district ; and with that excep tion, when 71 points fell, there had been none for a month previously. Last night, Lowever, a welcome change was heralded by thunder and lightning, which at about eo p.m. was followed by heavy rain, with intermittent hail, lasting well on throughout the night. At daybreak this morning the rain slackened; but at that hour 77 points were regis tered at No 2 observing station. This timely visitation will be of the great est service to all kinds of vegetation, but especially to the stimulation of growth in grass which will relieve the anxiety of stockowners who were on the look out for grass for their stock for the winter. Had it been deferred a week or two longer, for this purpose it would have-been al together: too late, as the lowered temperature would have bee...
