[Aus]Bulletin (Sydney) 13 Jul. 24/2: ‘No “lambed-down” shearer’ (writes The Bulletin’s London correspondent) ‘was ever chucked out of “The Traveller’s Rest” into the dusty road in a limp heap as the Maorilanders have been shot out of the Antipodean bowling team. [...] Looks as if the Meat-freezers were becoming thoroughly Seddonized, and the whole Southern Pacific will be necessary to reduce their ballooned heads.’.
