HIGH TARIFF MENAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 22 August 1925
HIGH TARIFF MENAGE. WE shudder to think that the ' Federal Ministry contemplate a policy of high duties on * im ported merchandise The para mount position that commands our attention in this regard is that of the farmer and his ma. chinery. Why should the artic. les he uses in production be sub ject to high tariff thereby shrink, ing his profits? He is not in the same position as the ordinary "trader; he cannot pass the charge on. Not only is the farmer handi. capped by duties on machinery, but a duty of 2d. and 3d. per gall on is asked on kerosene and mo tor spirit, in cases. NO demand is too preposterous for presentation to the Tariff Board, as witness the application for a duty of 2d. a gallon on kerosene in packages, now imported free, and 3d., a gallon on motor spirit in packages, now duti able at Id. a gallon. A crushing im post of this kind would descend upon country life likfe a deadly blight—for it is the country, remote from centres of bulk distribution, which would be pen...

TENNIS. "THE PINES" CLUB. The tennis courts and grounds were ' a scene o£ gaiety on Sunday afternoo'n as the result of the untiring efforts of an energetic secretary (Mr. -H. Merrifield) with the advice and as sistance of Sergeant Riordan, Mrs. Riordan and family. 'About 200 peo ple were in the court grounds to take part in what may be termed the- rein statement of tennis at Taralga. And judging by Sunday's exhibition, which in some particular contests was of a very high class, this pleasant pastime will soon again be an outstanding sport in several places in fhedistrict. During the afternoon the ladies of the town provided afternoon tea, which was very much appreciated. The Taralga Band rendered an excell ent programme and added much to the enjoyment of the afternoon. The weather conditions were good, al though not quite what may be called ideal tennis weather, being overcast at times, which interfered with the light, especially on one occasion when . a very hard-fought set was bei...
The Plan. Article No. 4. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 22 August 1925
The Plan. Article No. 4. Wake up, country. There is much to be done it' we are to hold Australia, if jve are to keep it white, and i£ we are to save our children from some of the horrors we haveknown. There must be a prosperous countryside. This must be in fact, not in talk. Look at the problem this way: Does New South Wales trouble about .Wes tern Australia? Even so, just' as we in this State do not worry in the least about the foct that less than 400,000 people are trying to develop one third of this great country, neither does the well-off city merchant trouble about the country and the struggles of those who are trying to make a competence by winning real wealth from the soil. The city press is so busy with sensations, with what is looked upon as readable "news," and the safeguarding of interests of select vested interests, the welfare of the country falls into an "also ran" place. There must be a combination of efforts of three country forces,— The Country Press, the Country Bu...

POTATO MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 22 August 1925
POTATO MARKET. The Primary Producers Trading Agency, Ltd., reports under date 14tli August:— The market for locals has been somewhat irregular dhring the week, but generally prices held fairly firm. On Monday, 10th insl., 23 trucks were forward, most from Crookwell, and for the week about 9,000 bags were forward. On top of the heavy sup plies held on the several wharves on account of Tasmanian growers the supply was considerably more than re quired for normal trading, consequent ly we experienced a dragging, market, and as the week progressed prices were inclined to weaken. Sales for the five trading days ranged from 12/7 down to 9/G per cwt. at the yards, and on the wharves from £14 down to £12. At time of writing there remains on the wharves many thousands of bags yet to find buyers. Roughly the carry-over will be in the vicinity of 8,000 to 10,000 bags, and it is very evi dent that many of these potatoes will have to be sold at prices much under the fixed price before buyers will...
Correspondence. (To the Editor). INSURANCE OF WOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 22 August 1925
r Correspondence. i • (To the Editor). INSURANCE OF WOOL. Sir,—A circular has been broad casted requesting woolgrowers to ad opt a certain combination policy of sheeps' back and "whilst in store and until paid for policy." We regard the matter of such out standing importance as to warrant us ia seriously requesting every one of our clients to refrain from adopting such method of insurance until he has first referred the whole question to an insurance expert or to his solicitor. Wo are not in tlie habit of writing without solid basis in sounding a warning of this kind in direct oppo sition to the advocacy of a strong or ganisation, but insurance is a highly technical matter, and qute unwiitting ly woolgrowers may easily be launch ed into a medley of complications regarding "dual insurance;" the ab struce "average" question; "total and partial loss;" "Eall o£ the hammer';" and' "for value" policies, and other intricate points in connection with the wool trade that have for years past ...
