At an average value of from 1/6 to 2' each, these are worth £150,000 to £200.000, which money would have come to Australia had they been sold. This would have been very accep table at the present time, especially to the fanner, who needs every penny he can get.

and Register ADELAIDE: FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 1931. FEDERAL POLITICAL CRISIS The hopeless failure of the Premiers' Conference, reported from Melbourne last night, precipitates a political crisis which not only defies description, but makes speculation a mere groping in the dark, even in relation to the imme diate future. Mr. Scullin must accept the major share of a terrible respon sibility. The impasse from which the conference was offered no conceivable means of escape, and in lace of which the breakdown of negotiations was inevitable, was of the Federal Govern ment's own making. The unalterable resolve of the Prime Minister and his dismembered Cabinet to maintain Com monwealth expenditure at a level of impossible and ruinous prodigality completely nullified every effort to for mulate a national plan of economy. The sacrifices which have already been made in five of Hie States, In pur suance of an heroic struggle towards financial recovery, have been callously ignored by Mr. Scullin,...

MEADOWS FIRE It is seldom nowadays that anything on the scale of the bush fire at Mea- dows is experienced in South Australia, though worse catastrophes have been known in former years, involving occa sionally loss of life. Here it is a case of damage only; but this has been serious enough, and, apart from the monetary loss, estimated at some £30,000, is the sentimental loss and in convenience to those nine families who lost their homes. The wind proved lander than not a few expected, or the red tongues would have lapped the whole of Kuitpo forest and Meadows. As it was, only one of the pine plan tations appears to have been destroyed. In December, the Waterfall Gully fire sounded a note of warning as to what might be expected from the dryness of grass and scrub, and with the air heated as it has been during the past few days, it is impossible to ex aggerate the danger of are. Eternal vigilance is the price of safety as well as liberty, and prevention rather than cure was advocated ...
