I de sire to point out that tho Minister's letter is very inconsistent and unsat isfactory. _ Ile says that on the re commendation of the Commissioner it is proposed to expend £7000 on a cen tral railway refreshment room at Conara to serve thoso travelling by the Main and Western lines, and "then goes on to say that the average dis tance travelled is so short that those making, through journeys take meals before joining the trains, and arrive at their destination by the time they require another meal. If this is cor rect, why go to the expense of erect ing a costly building_at Conar...

SOME CROP FICURES. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 15 January 1919
SOME CROP FICURES. I Tho usual forecasts of crops for the current harvest have been received from the Government Statistician, and they, are of a cheery character in com parison with previous statements. Thero is an increased acreage under tho principal crops in all lines except po tatoes and wheat. It has been notorious that in both these lines the acreage has been a lessened one. For many years tho Tasmanian farmer has been competing with the mainlander ia growing wheat under obvious difficul ties, and with price fixing in vogue ho 'has not had the promise of a partici ' nation in values that aro usually to be anticipated when the crops fail- on the 'other side of the water. For tho-re grettable decline in potato production there are doubtless many contributing factors. One of the most notable is the "drilling"' growers -have received in previous years by tho blight.ibut it is very unfortunate that many of them' went to tho eitreiho" of leaving tho crop alone altogether. " For ins...
