Publicans ‘clean sweep’ at Cup

IN  Charters Towers recently a man gave the hotelkeepers a real turn. He victimised ten of them with forged cheques. There has since been an amusing sequel to the affair. One publican remarked that the forgeries were a “clean sweep,” and were an “office” for the winner of the Melbourne Cup. Consequently several of the victims backed Clean Sweep [pictured] for the Cup, and they won from £20 to £100 each.
