PARLIAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Werriwa Times and Goulburn District News — 11 October 1901
PARLIAMENT. After dealing with some formal matters, which included the third read ing of the Demise of the Crown Bill, the Devonshire-street Cemetery Bill, and the recommittal and amendment of the Cily of Sydney Municipal Loan Bill, tiieorder of the day for the resump tion.of the debate on the second read ing of the Industrial Arbitration Bill was called on in the Legislative Council on Wednesday. Thereupon Mr. Hawken raised a point of order, in which he gave seven grounds for his contention that the State Parliament had no power to introduce and pass such a measure, and that it was in con travention of the powers conferred upon the Commonwealth in its Con stitution. The Attorney-General sub mitted that the points raised were matters of law rather than of order, and that no President of the Legisla tive Councilor Speaker of the Assembly would take upon himself to decide them. They we e matters for deter mination by a legal tribunal. The Deputy President, who was in the chair, adopte...
In Produce Circles. [Newspaper Article] — Werriwa Times and Goulburn District News — 11 October 1901
In Produce Circles. In produce- circles along Sussex sticet on Wednesday a good deal of discussion was indulged in by mer chants and others as to the effect of the proposed federal duties in the Sydney markets. The opinion expres sed was that the. duties would be a big blow to New Ze.itand,especiaUy sofar as New South Wales is concerned, as the high tariff would almost stop im portations of both grain and dairy pro duce into this colony. Considering the quantities of produce imported into New South Wales from New Zealand every year, this meant a substantial loss to the-New Zealand producers. Island produce in the way of maize would also be excluded, as well as American Maize. European, Japanese, and American onions would also have to pay a duty of per ton. The alterations inpriccs as the result of the duties were a rise in oats and New Zealand cheese. Both blue'and grey peas must improve considerably in value, as this market was almost en tirely dependent on New Zealand for these ar...

Interview with Mr. Wise. [Newspaper Article] — Werriwa Times and Goulburn District News — 11 October 1901
Interview v. ith A\r. Wise. Mr. i3. !*• Wise, Statu Attorney Genera!, snirl. " be remembered tlinl Mr. Kingston Jind not a ?reg hand In 'framing the tariff, but has bee i bound down by two conditions. ■ Firs'.. Jjc haj Iwdto provide a revenue j and : secondly, he lias had to pay regard ".to J the fact that in all the States there were protected industries, which no free trader would propose at once to de stroy. Hedged about as he was by these two limitations Mr. Kingston hits, I think, fanned a reasonable and moderate tariff. Of course it will hot please'either extreme freetraders ■or extreme protectionists, for it is essen tially a compromise tariff, and bears out to the letter the promise made by Mr. Barton when he foreshadowed the Government policy in his MaitJand speech." I see already the Melbourne pro tectionists are indignant because Mr. Kingston has not increased the duties; while the freetraders who sit in Op position are attacking the Government on opposite grounds. But fr...

iHr. H. W. G'Sullivan's Views. The fedornl tariff is (the Minister lor Works jDiiinrkbr]) designed with the twofold ohjet: of obtaining i-vonun and . pvinjj a fair amount- of protection to, Australian industries. It will no doubt lio unpalatable nt l!v;t. but I ventiiro to. assert tliat it will do an iuimcnso amount of good by developing the resources of j tlie country and (jiving Jiicro employ ment at a fair late of wage a. Protec tion is simply the development of the inetinot of self-preservation. I have many times predicted that if protection was conceded to New South Wales there would bo an enormous number of industries and manufactories started here, because Wo have all the ingre dients of a great manufacturing country —coal, iron, wool, timber, &e.
