MELBOURNE BUTTER MARKET AN EXTRAORDINARY POSITION. SWAMPED BY SUPPLIES FROM OTHER STATES. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 29 April 1914

MELBOURNE BUTTER MARKET AN EXTRAORDINARY POSITION. ! SWAMPED , BY SUPPLIES FROM ! OTHER STATES. A most extraordinary state of affairs i exists in the Melbourne butter market at the present time. A good season -in NW South Wales and Queensland, cou pled with a dry season in Victoria, hias I 'od to the importation into Victoria of I Olio; mous quantities of butter from the ( Northern States. Its quality, moreover, is inferior only to the choicest brands ;hat Victoria produces, and, as it is be'j"?; ottered in the wholesale market at 2d. to 3d. per lb. loss than the price de sanded for Victorian butter, it is being disposed of without difficulty.

THE ALGAROBA FODDER BEAN-TREE. To the Editor. Sir,—This tree (Prosipis juli flora) is a beautiful shady-ever green growing to the height of 30 to 40 feet. It is a wide spreading tree, much like our wattle, and can be raised easily from seed in any kind of soil, if planted in the Spring or Summer months ; and requires about two years to bear.

They are said to con tain up to 20 per cent, of grape sugar, 17 of starch and 11 of protein and other valuable ingredients. This tree is a native of Chili, S. America, where immense quantities of these beans are gathered each season, and on three estates alone 15,000 bags are stored annually. It also produces a valuable gum, which gives employment to a large number of people, and the bark is valuable for tanning leather, and brings a good price, while the leav...

FEDERAL LAND TAX. EFFECT OF THE TAX. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 29 April 1914

FEDERAL LAND TAX. EFFECT OF THE TAX. That the operation of the Federal land tax is having the effect of in ducing large property owners to subdivide their estates is evidenced by the fact that the assessments for the current financial year are fewer in number than last year, and the amount of tax levied considerably less. A statement made available by the Land Tax Commissioner (Mr. G. A. M'Kay) shows that altogether 13.832 returns have been assessed for a tax of ^217,657. Compered with last year's figures, the tax for 1913-14 is approximate ly ,£175,000 less, but it is explained that the department's valuations have, in a majority of cases, to be applied to the values returned by owners for the current year. Ad ditional assessments in other States also have to be taken into account. Mr. M'Kay states, however, that an analysis of the returns re ceived points to the conclusion that the process of breaking up large estates (the main intention of the act) has operated during the past tw...
