THINGS IN GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — Daily Witness — 3 December 1923
THINGS IN GENERAL I (By nn occasional Rambler)* Everything points to a decreased area in wheat cultivation. A cri sis has occurred in America and numbers of banks have failed, owing to the low price of wheat. . It is a question if it would not be better only to grow our own requirements for a year or two. Cultivate as much land as at present, hut for the excess put in Todder crops, thereby increasing our wool and fat lambs, the two best paying primary prod ucts we have at present, with dairy ing as a good runner lip. These three industries can pull Australia through. There is no use blinding our. eyes to the fact that the finan cial position at present is critical caused by the uncertainty .existing over the world. Unemployment in England has caused the present elec tions there. The fall in the value of money in many continental coun tries give them a big handicap in pouring their products into England -thereby closing up manufactories, fitahle. It is no use working on theories. Fre...

TEMPORAL POWER. Papal Renunciation Denied. NO SIGNIFICANCE IN SPANISH KING'S VISIT. [Newspaper Article] — Daily Witness — 3 December 1923
TEMPORAL POWER. Papal Renunciation Denied. NO SIGNIFICANCE IN SPANISH KING'S VISIT. ROME, 30th. November:-Consid erable comment has been aroused by the publication of an article in the "Osservatore Romano," the organ I'l the Vatican, protesting against the. in ternretation placed by the Italian and foreign newspajei's on the Span ish King's visit to the Pope. Che newspaper denies that the visit sig nifies the Pope's final renunciation of all dreams of recovering tempor al power. The iPope, by granting permission to Roman Catholic sovereigns to visit Rome, has not in any way ac quiesced in the situation .created in 1X70. An encyclical issued in 1920 by Benedict XV., by which the per mission was first accorded, is quoted to the effect that this concession must not be interpreted as a tacit rc munieation of the Pope's sacrosanct right. On the contrary, the Pope litis renewed the protest of his predeces sors. The article concludes:-"The wound of 1870 cannot be cured by blandishments."
