GOLD MINING AND WAR PROFITS TAXATION. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 5 December 1916

GOLD MINING AND WAR PROFITS -TAXATION. I (By W. A. Macleod, in the Monthly Journal of the Chamber of Mines.) In times like the present all petty 1 Interests must be subordinated to the -one great and vital need tor a speedy and successful termination of, the war. Problems of taxation should be viewed from the broadest possible standpoint, even to the sac rifice of justice to expediency. The incidence of taxation can never be quite equitable,` but where necessity compels, interests must often give way to Imperial and Federal re quxrements, which at this moment are, in order, men, munitions, and the preservation of such industries as are essential to militar and financial operations now and after the war.

NEW TAXATION PROPOSALS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 5 December 1916

NEW TAXATION PROPOSALS. The Centralisation Party always opposed the Scaddan Government's proposal for increased, taxation on the plea that the Ministry should institute economy in administration rather than impose additional bur den, on the people. It was on this contention that Mr. Frank Wilson, the Centralisation leader, induced his supporters in the Legislative Council to- reject the fresh taxation proposals of the late Government. Now that he himself is Premier he calmly proposes new taxation that. during the remaining six or seven months of the financial year will ex-. tract an additional £237,000 from the pockets of the people.. During the current financial year he pro poses to expend £495,679 more than the revenue expected .and "the esti mated result will be that despite the increased taxation he will end the financial year .with a deficit of £258,679. Instead of economising, the new Government propose to spend nearly half a million more than the revenue expected. The Commonw...

However, a meeting uf all the local Slavs which is. being called on Sunday will discuss another means. for serving . the allies vwhich was suggested last year, and which will. if a sufficient response is forth coming throughout the Common wealth, probably mean the despatch inr of volunteers to the help of the allies apart from the A.I.F. A movement is afoot to ascertain if there are sufficient Slavrs in Aus tralia to form part of a force called the "Adriatic Legion," planned by the Jugoslav Committee in Loudon, to aid the allies in the best way pos-sib:e.

RAILWAY FINANCE AND CHARGES. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 5 December 1916

RAILWAY FINANCE AND CHARGES. In a democratic country which owns and works its railways there are never-ending opportunities for disagreement and complaint among widely scattered and variously oc cupied sections of the community, as to what profits should be made, how they should be allotted, and who ýiall hear the loss, when loss accrues from toe S tate monopoly. As a general thing there used to be no loss; because Railway Com missioners-and all the States are agreed that it is advisable to keep railways clear of polities, and par liamentary interference-are . in structed to work their lines on busi ness principles. But, of course, if Parliament will authorise and con struct lines for "developmenta.lpur poses," and with a far view to the future rather than to the present, the Railway Commissioners are oonstrained to show a loss instead of a p:rofit in had times. Nearly 30 years ago Victoria, which had launched lavishly into construction, had to lament a loss of £1000 a day on her ra...
