New Zealand and the Federal Tariff. [Newspaper Article] — Werriwa Times and Goulburn District News — 25 October 1901
New Zealand and the Federal Tariff. A correspondent writes from N.2. The Federal Tariff is already engaging the serious attention of politicians, .commercial men and the newspapers from one end of New-Zealand to the other. In fact, the colony is only now waking up to the importance of her connection with the Commonwealth. The New Zealand press agent in Sydney has cabled that the object of making the agricultural tariff so high was undoubtedly to kill the New-Zea land trade, and thus to bring the colony up with a sharp turn to the realisation ofwhatithas lost. Whether or not this is an accurate statement of the case, it is the opinion generally held here, and, on looking into the returns of our trade with Australia, it is apparent that, in this respect, we shall certainly lose a good deal in con sequence of our remaining outside, the Commonwealth. In many cases' the duties are regarded as absolutejy pro hibitive and likely to kill our produce trade to the Commonwealth. The latest lig...

The Celebrated Racehorse Whisker. The Black Springs correspondent of the " Lithgow Mercury " supplies the following :—I had sent to me, a day or two ago, one of the shoes (racing plate) worn by Whisker, the celebrated race horse, in his last race for the Sydney I Cup in October, 1835—now 66 years I ago. Whisker was imported by the late Henry Bayley, of Bayley Park, in 1830, and was got by English Whisker and was a brother to the noted English Whalebone. Whisker had a very suc cessful career o£ racing all the time he was 111 this country, and I do notrecol lect that he was ever beaten. When lie won his last race Mr. Bayley was offered twelve hundred golden guineas for him 011 the spot, but that gentleman refused the offer, and it is thought that he would not have taken twice that sum for him. Unfortunately, this fine horse was found dead in hi3 box a | morning or two afterwards. Mr. Bay ley got a grave dug, and buried the remains, and there they were for nearly sixty years; until Bay...
