SLUICE SYSTEM AT MURRAY MOUTH CONTROLLED SEAWAY To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 27 February 1931
SLUICE SYSTEM AT MURRAY MOUTH CONTROLLED SEAWAY To the Editor I am, Sir, &c, ROSS GRAHAM. Tumby Bay. Sir— In the matter of locking the River Murray, the greatest problem, a "seaway," has been left until last. Con- ditions are as nature has, by argument of tides and storms, balanced them for ages- Such balance places the open ing and navigation of the Murray mouth beyond all question of utility and economy. It is a mouth that has too many arguments for us, so we must come away from it, and, I believe, to a solution of the great problem, namely, a controlled sluice system. The system is that of a controlled ingress, by barrages and lock, through the Murray mouth; then, at the fall of the tide, a controlled egress to the sea through a lock and canal at Goolwa. Goolwa would be made a basin by a lock above and a barrage below; the locks and barrages in the whole system being high enough to adequately con trol the water at highest tide. The locks to be so constructed as to allow t...
MR. BUTLER DUMBFOUNDED LIBERAL PARTY'S MISDEEDS To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 27 February 1931
MR. BUTLER DUMBFOUNDED LIBERAL PARTY'S MISDEEDS To the Editor I am, Sir, &c., MATTHEW ADAM, Mile-End. Sir— I am sorry to learn that Mr. Butler, leader of the Opposition, is back again at his old tricks of be- littling the workers. Mr. Bruce, ex- Prime Minister, recently publicly stated that bo:h sides had made mistakes; and Mr. Butler must bear his share of blame for tne deplorable conditions that exist at present in our State. If war broke out to-morrow, Mr. Butler would probably be found on the stump exhorting men whom he would not help in times of stress, to rally to the flag and fight for their country. But for the redder expenditure of his Gov ernment on the railways and in other; directions, there would not have been : any need for the lamentable system of i rations. By the way, it is quite in I order to ask Mr. Butler what he pro- duces for tee £700 per annum (less the farcical 5 per cent.) that the over burdened taxpayers are compelled to give him. Mr. Butler would b...
HELP FOR FARMERS GOVERNMENT SCHEME CRITICISED [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 27 February 1931

He is to be the serf that he nas always been, only in a more ag gravated forni. Most of the farmers have worked for the last eeven years for less than nothing: in fact, they iiave mostly lost their savings, and now the Government comes along with a scheme to get another year's grind out, of them. If the fanners would wake up and demand at least the basic wacr> for themselves, to come out of ti-.c crop firci, it would he only a fmr thing. No doubt they are entitled at| least to that, in addition to what bit of rations they ...

GOLD AND WEALTH SOME ECONOMIC FALLACIES To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 27 February 1931
GOLD AND WEALTH SOME ECONOMIC FALLACIES To the Editor I am, sir, &c., A.T. SAUNDERS. Sir—It is amusing and exasperating to read the nonsense that is written about sold in connection with money. One of the errors is that gold has value because it is used as money; but the fact is gold is used as money be cause it is valuable and takes, on the average, a great deal of labor to pro duce. Suppose some scientist showed that all the grains of sand on Le- Pevres Peninsula could, with little labor or expenditure, be turned into grains of gold. What would happen? Simply that the value of gold would fall and this would be shown by an enormous rise in prices; in fact, infla tion would ensue. For class reasons1 political economists will not admit nor I discuss the truth, that the value of any I article is the average cost of producing it, and producing includes transport to where It is required for use and con sumption. There is no such thing as capital. The word is used to hide the fac...
BE THRIFTY! PRACTICE OF CARDINAL VIRTUES To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 27 February 1931
BE THRIFTY! PRACTICE OF CARDINAL VIRTUES To the Editor I am. Sir, &c, J. E. SWANN, Angaston. Sir—Extensive political and financial reforms are imperative for Australia, but the main thing is for us to prac- tice more assiduously the ordinal vir- tues_ Let everybody be thrifty, and learn lessons from the past 16 years or more. Providence has provided its with over-abundance of wheat, wool, fruit, fish, and all necessary commodi ties, and a wonderful land to live in, and yet we are in need and want, and talk of bankruptcy. Why? Because what we should have saved has bsenj spent in over-indulgence in buildings, sport, gambling, drink, motor cars, non observance of Sundays, picture shows, and many vices. Every day there has been something new on which to waste our earnings. Be thrifty. Get back to God. Put our house in order, square things up by the end of Jane, and make an economic, thrifty, prosperous, and righteous start on July 1 for a better and wiser future.-
VIEWS AND COMMENTS FARMERS' EXPENSES GREATLY OUTWEIGH INCOME To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 27 February 1931
VIEWS AND COMMENTS FARMERS' EXPENSES GREATLY OUTWEIGH INCOME To the Editor I am. Sir, &c J. CHRISTIAN, Yaninee. Sir—I would inform Mr. J. Saunders that it is useless to insert the thin, end of the wedge of the single tax prin- ciple until some of the other wedges have been withdrawn. When that has been done, probably most farmers will have no objection to a little extra land tax. Now for a few facts and figures. For 1,000 bags (3,000 bushels) of wheat we receive at this siding exactly £187 10/ after rail freight and handling charges are deducted. Railage to the nearest port takes £62 10/, or 250 bags. To produce the thousand bags many things are needed, including super, the railage on which is £15. Machinery, improvements, and repairs and fencing are necessary, which take at least another £15 in freight charges per annum. The farmer needs food and clothing and other things for which the rail charges at £12 10/ would be a conservative estimate. If he keeps a few sheep and sen...
