CORRESPONDENCE. TO THE EDITOR OP THE ALBURY BANNER. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 14 February 1896
CORRESPONDENCE. - - TO THE EDITOR OF THE ALBURT BANNER. . Sir,— In looking over the Banner of the 31st nit. I overlooked your Burrumbattock correspondent's criticism on my letter in the Banner of the 24 ih ; my attention was only directed to it later on, hence my late reply. Both yon in your foot-note to my letter as also your Burrumbuttock correspondent, ignore the real point of my argument. My premises briefly speaking are : The daty on wheat for many years, in fact, aa far back as I can - - remember, has never increased the price of wheat in Victoria except in the present season, for the simple reason that there was always a surplus. I contend that in the present instance the duly in raising the price of wheat is actually doing more mischief than good even to the farmers, inasmuch, as it assists to crush those unfortunate farmers who have harvested nothing, and who consequently will have to buy seed and bread at an advanced xate through the -taflaence of protection. This neither ...

FLOTSAM AND JETSAM. , , ? — i.l i. ? y — ? r (By H.N.T.) ' Speak naught but kindly.' Ab progooatioated in ' Flotsam and Jetsam ' & tew weeks back, the two old warriors and the new aspirant, who haa yet to win his spurs aa an alderman, have been eleoted. It shows that a majority of the ratepayers, at any ratej are determined to have no cliqueism in the council, whether through the nominees of leagues or otherwise. It is also a pretty straight intimation to any semi-political association that may wish to thrust its nominees forward that the ratepayers will hare none of it, The new alderman, Mr. W. Carkeek, may well be satis fled with his position on the -poll— a most flattering testimony even to a man who has ' always gone straight.' No doubt his actions yrill be closely watched and keenly criticisid' but, judging by his paat reputation, there need be little uneasiness as to the ultimate result. If the old warriors do as well in the future as they have done in the past, there ...
