THE WIDGEON DISASTER. MELBOURNE, January 8. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
THE WIDGEON DISASTER MELBOURNE, January 8. Two flying caps were found by search- es on the rocks at Port Philip Bay to-day, together with a small amount of wreckage, but no trace of the bodies of the ill-fated airmen were discovered. The caps were picked up four or five miles from where the Widgeon crashed. A systematic search of the Bay was carried out by aircraft, and land par- ties co-operated, but no bodies were found. The caps were of regulation pattern, and it was impossible to say to which men they belonged. The tip of a wing and a cushion were also found. Experienced fishermen told the Air Force officials to-day that unless the bodies were recovered within the next few hours the chances of ever finding them would be remote. The search, however, will be continued for several days. MELBOURNE, January 9. Another small fragment of the Wid- gean was all that was found to-day by searchers. No trace of the bodies was discovered. It has been established that the Widgeon alighted on ...
FACTORY FIRE. RUSH THROUGH FLAMES. MELBOURNE, January 9. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
FACTORY FIRE. RUSH THROUGH FLAMES. MELBOURNE, January 9. Fed by large quantities of inflam- mable material, a fire which broke out in the premises of the Boston Black- ing Company, Richmond, trapped three employees, resulting in Alexander Curry, 26, Richmond, being burned to death. Altogether six others, including a fire brigade officer, received injuries and burns, one man being critically injured and the others seriously. The fire was heralded by several ex- plosions and is supposed to have start- ed among the highly inflammable liquid used for mixing rubber stored in the basement. Curry, who was working near the basement, was trapped in a room, and, making a dash through a wall of flame, his clothing was burnt off him by the time he reached the street. Another employee named Cleland, who was working near some rubber so- lution, was also burned about the head, but his condition is not serious. He quickly warned the other employees, who rushed from the building. The explosion cause...
OIL AT LONGREACH EXISTENCE PROVED DEPTH OF BORE 3227 FEET. LONGREACH, January 14. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
OIL AT LONGREACH EXISTENCE PROVED DEPTH OF BORE 3227 FEET. LONGREACH, January 14. The Longreach oil bore reached a depth of 3227 feet to-day. As previously reported, a small pilot hole has been drilled below the casing and to-day the top of the oil sands was apparently tapped. &nbsp; When the pump was raised, after drilling about 6 inches, a thick &nbsp; oil scum came to the surface. Drilling wag stopped and it was decided &nbsp; to bail out the water and relieve the pressure from the oil. The water has now been bailed down to 1000 feet from the sur- face and each run of the pump shows an increase in the supply of oil. &nbsp; In the town bore, about 100 yards away, 14 feet of oil-bearing &nbsp; sands were encountered and it is thought that probably only a couple of inches have yet been opened in the oil bore. The oil is of a dark brown colour and smells strongly of crude &nbsp; oil. Bailing will be continued and may prove that the wate...
THE WATERFRONT. CANBERRA, January 8. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
THE WATERFRONT. CANBERRA, January 8. The Assistant Minister for Industry (Mr. Beasley) strongly denied to-day that he had recently met the Mel- bourne waterside officials at sec- ret conferences. Reports to that effect, he declared, were un- true, but he probably would meet the &nbsp; officials in Melbourne next week, though he was not aware of any grow- ing unrest on the waterfront. Cabinet would also consider the waterfront position when drawing up industrial legislation to be introduced next ses- sion. &nbsp; NO UPHEAVAL IMMINENT. MELBOURNE, January 8. A denial was given by waterside offi- cials to-day to the reports that a serious upheaval is imminent, although they admitted that much discontent prevails among the workers. Any attempt at direct action, it was believed, would end in failure. &nbsp; Other union officials claim that the threat made in Sydney was merely an attempted demonstration of kite flying.
SAMOA. PUBICITY WELCOMED. AUCKLAND, January 9. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
SAMOA. PUBICITY WELCOMED. AUCKLAND, January 9. Determined efforts to enforce law and order in Samoa will be made by the New Zealand Government, according to a statement by the Premier (Sir Joseph Ward), who issued an ultimatum to the Mau organisation in Samoa. The Government, he said, was con- vinced that the fullest consideration and utmost faith had been accorded the Mau, and it would be failing in its duty if it did not now take all the necessary steps to assert law and preserve order in the territory. The ultimatum adds: ''The New Zea- land Government has always been ready and willing to consider any grievances the Mau might have, but it was unfor- tunately true that the Mau and their supporters had been trading on the na- tural reluctance of the Government to use force against the misguided natives, except as a final resort. ''With the death of a New Zealand constable, for which the Mau were re- sponsible, the situation materially changed. In collaboration with the Ad- ministra...
UNIFICATION. RAILWAYS GAUGES. MELBOURNE, January 14. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
UNIFICATION. RAILWAYS GAUGES. MELBOURNE, January 14. Further proposals regarding the uni- fication of railway gauges throughout Australia will be submitted by the Fede- ral Ministry to the next conference of State Premiers, which is expected to be held in Canberra about the middle of February. It was decided to submit to the conference for consideration the re- port received recently from the railway commissioners of the Commonwealth &nbsp; and the States, which recommends that the Commonwealth should reaffirm the proposals agreed to in 1921 to bear one- fifth of the total cost; that the States be invited to accept the revised esti- mate and agree to the work being un- dertaken on the basis of the 1921 pro- posals, which were accepted; that the States be invited to agree to restrict- ing all new constructions to an abso- lute minimum during the next five years, with a view to concentrating all efforts, financial and otherwise, on the comple- tion of uniform gauge. The propos...
SHOT HIS COUSIN. THEN ATTEMPTED SUICIDE. ADELAIDE, January 14. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
SHOT HIS COUSIN. THEN ATTEMPTED SUICIDE. ADELAIDE, January 14. Two persons were critically injured at Port Pirie this morning, when a youth is alleged to have shot a woman, his cousin, at whose house he was liv- ing and then turned the weapon on him- self. The victims are Mrs. Phoebe War- wick, 27, Port Pirie, bullet wounds in the throat and back, and E. Argent, 16, bullet wound under the eye. Leslie Ar- thur Warwick, husband of the woman, was working in Port Pirie when the shooting occurred. Argent had been liv- ing with the Warwicks at Port Pirie and doing odd jobs about the place.

Market Movements for the Week. MARKET PRICES. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
Market Movements for the Week. &nbsp; MARKET PRICES. Many difficulties surround the matter of conveying to primary pro- ducers a proper record of market movements through the week. The &nbsp; daily fluctuating supply, the vagaries of demand as well as the market &nbsp; tactics of both buyers and sellers make impossible the giving of prices other than fair average prices for fair average quality. Nobody want- &nbsp; ing to either buy or sell a large line of primary produce would close &nbsp; the deal on such quotation, for the reason that the quality might be either above or below fair average quality, and the advantages of deal- ing in bulk instead of piece meal have all to be considered. &nbsp; The source of origin of such prices also has to be considered, and the comparative scarcity of primary producers' trading organisations narrows down the source to private trading concerns. On the other hand, for the same reason that private tra...

ROCKHAMPTON NEWS, ROCKHAMPTON, January 9. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
ROCKHAMPTON NEWS. ROCKHAMPTON, January 9. In a local maternity home recently a boy was born with 12 fingers and a similar number of toes. There was an outgrowth on each of the little fingers and also on the little toes. This is probably a unique case so far as Rock- hampton is concerned, but Gould and Pyle, in '' Anomalies and Curiosities of Medicine,'' provide even more extraor- dinary cases of supernumerary fingers and duplication of toes. A sketch is shown of a hand with nine fingers and a foot with nine toes. Voight records an instance of 13 fingers on each hand and 12 toes on each foot. Saviard saw an infant at the Hotel-Dieu in Paris in 1687 which had 40 digits, ten on each member. Annandale relates the history of a woman who had six fingers and two thumbs on each hand, and another who had eight toes on one foot. Meckel tells of a case in which a man had 12 fingers and 12 toes— a parallel to the local case— while Mason has seen nine toes on the left foot. About 8 o'clock last ...
THE HARDY POLL. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
THE HARDY POLL. Sir. -The leading article in your issue of Monday last, under the heading ''Development of the Cattle Industry,'' &nbsp; has undoubtedly been read with great interest, showing, as it does, most im- portant factors for successful develop- ment of the industry, but there are one or two features which convey a &nbsp; &nbsp; mistaken conception of the relative merit of polled and horned cattle to withstand drought, or other hard con- ditions. Your position precludes a close observation of the infinite complexities surrounding the study of beef produc- &nbsp; &nbsp; tion, which is made possible only by concentrated thought on the long ex- perience of actual results. You say that polled cattle are not able to with- stand hardships so well as horned cat- tle. Experience teaches us that polled cattle, especially polled Herefords, can and do, withstand the hardships of drought periods the best of all. As a matter of fact one can always ...
CORRESPONDENCE. THE HOSTEL, To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
CORRESPONDENCE. THE HOSTEL. To the Editor. Sir,— Opposition to the proposed hostel for country children has come from one of the two institutions that shortly are likely to be hanging out distress signals. Unsecured by denominational interest and influence, and compelled to face the growing menace of the High School, both the Boys' and Girls' Gram mar schools are in danger of being left with little beyond their ponderous and costly dual control and traditions upon which to subsist. The official state- ment made by the Trustees of the Girls' Grammar School indicates at least a dawning realisation of some such men- ace, as well as a somewhat pedantic &nbsp; disregard for the interests of the &nbsp; parents of country children who initia- ted the movement. In the absence of a similar protest or objection from the &nbsp; trustees of the Boys' Grammar School, it may be accepted that they are either &nbsp; oblivious to the menace, or else they &nbsp...
WRECK OF MANUKA. WELLINGTON, January 8. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
WRECK OF MANUKA. WELLINGTON, January 8. Captain Ross Clark, master of the Manuka, stated at an inquiry at Dune- din to-day that the loss of the liner was due to an abnormal set from east to west. The current, he contended, carried the vessel off its course. It was difficult to recall what happened. It was all over in a flash. Looking from the side of the ship, he saw the loom of land and breakers close by. Then the Manuka struck on the rocks. He believed that the visibility was about one mile in every direction. Light rain was falling. He could not have asked for anything more in the be- haviour of the officers and crew.

The Wonder Air Plant, on the contrary, calls for no care ; it re- quires neither water nor soil. Suspended anywhere out of the direct sunlight, it preserves its beautifully fresh and green appearance for years, the feathery fronds expanding in damp weather, absorbing moisture from the air and glistening with dew, and in dry seasons becoming more close . The engrav- ing is an inadequate representation ...
