STATE LABOR PARTY "SOCIALISATION WING DISCREDITED" To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 9 October 1931

STATE LABOR PARTY "SOCIALISATION WING DIS CREDITED" To the Editor I am. Sir. &c., WILLIAM DANIELS. Magill. Sir—Seemingly the ragged remnant of the once honored but now dis- <*> credited official State Labor Party has been in travail, and brought forth a mouse in the Sorm of the Socialisation | Party of six Parliamentarians, five of j whom are union secretaries. The i new party will seek to justify its existence by opposing IJie Premiers I Plan, and those who favor it. But I political developments in recent months have caused many who formerly voted for official Labor candidates, as well as those who have been apathetic and ne glected to exercise th? franchise, to admit by the logic of events the fal lacy of their beliefs, and the urgent need for financial and industrial re form. Economy is a matter of prime necessity. The nni Government has already effected a saving in the State's salaries and wages bill approximating £600.000 a year. Owing to Mr. Hill's initia...

CHIEF SECRETARY AND MR. WARD BRANDS OF COMMUNISM To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 9 October 1931

CHIEF SECRETARY AND MR. WARD BRANDS OF COMMUNISM To the Editor I am. Sir. &c., F. F. WARD. Sir—The Chief Secretary (Mr. Whit- <*> ford) is reported to have said in your issue of October 8 that the workers knew where he (Mr. Whitford) stood las an Honest Labor man, but their i were entitled to ask "Where is Mr j I Ward." The workers know where I j am, and always have been, in the j I Labor movement since its inception: | I always loyal to the policy of the party j iand all its principles, and an earnest; advocate for it. The words quoted as ibeing used by Mr. Whitford are taken I from the report in the "Daily Herald" ■ Mr. Whitford says from what he ; knows of Communism there is no dif i ference between the Russian.

NORTHERN TRAIN SERVICE COMPLAINTS FROM QUORN To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 9 October 1931

NORTHERN TRAIN SERVICE COMPLAINTS FROM QUORN To the Editor I am. Sir. &c., E. G. WHILLIAMS, Quorn. Sir—The train service is the poorest we have had for the last 40 years. Instead of the train keeping pace with other means of transport, it is drop- ping further behind every year. In 1912 the train arrived at 6.5 pjn., late enough for the distance (234 miles). Now it prrives on Monday and Thurs day at 7.42 p.m.; on Tuesday, Wed nesday, and Friday at 8-31 PJH-, and on Saturday 6.4 pjn. Take the four days, omitting Tuesday's and Friday's express. These trains run from any thing up to one and a half hours late sometimes. On Wednesday it came in at 9 pjn. and Thursday 8 pm. Fancy asking us to patronise such a service, when we can get through from Adelaide to Quorn by car in six to eight hours, as against the train's 10 to 12 hours. Is it any wonder the railway revenue :is falling off? Why should the Wed nesday train be held back for the Mel bourne express for the chance of carry i...

EMPIRE BANK TO STABILISE THE CURRENCY To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 9 October 1931

EMPIRE BANK TO STABILISE THE CURRENCY To the Editor A POYNTON Sir—Some time ago a correspondent, "J. A. S.," dealt with this subject, and I thought that it was of sufficient Im- <*> portance to be commented upon by some of our financial and economic ! experts, but up to date there has been {no comment. Personally lam of the opinion that an Empire bank would have a good effect in stabilising the currency within the Empire, especially now that England has departed from 1 the gold standard. One of the most important effects of such a bank would be that the currency issued by the Empire bank would be negotiable at its face value in aD parts of the Em pire, and not, as it is mow, subject to a large discount. The greater ambit you give the currency the more stable it becomes. We had a practical example of that when we decided on a Commonwealth note issue. Prior to | that Queensland had its note issue, but the notes were subiect to a discount in all States outside Queensland,...

INFLATION AND OPTIMISM "FINANCIAI. ANGELS CONDEMN DEFLATION" To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 9 October 1931

INFLATION AND OPTIMISM "FINANCIAI. ANGELS CONDEMN DEFLATION" To the Editor I am. Sir. &c., A. c. STEVENS, Glenelg. Sir—The Rev. A. C. Stevens returns to the subject of inflation by saying "it is at present the actual policy of all parties in actual practice." Yet in his letters he advocates it as a remedy that ought to be , introduced. | He proceeds to boast of "being honest; about it:" then we have the plea that if inflation is robbery, so is deflation. Thus Dick Turpin might excuse himself by pointing to Bill Sites. "Inflation merely clips the wings of the rich." O. kind ana gentlemanly Robin Hood! If only It were so! But I can tell of an Australian woman -widowed in Ger many, and left with what she thought was sufficient to beep her and her child for a year or two. Very soon the in flated mark left her penniless. Bob bing the "widow and fatherless!" I wonder when Mr. Stevens discovered -the deflation of the past six years"; or is it an imagined period suggested as a warra...

LAND SETTLEMENT SOLUTION OF MARKETING PROBLEM To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 9 October 1931

LAND SETTLEMENT SOLUTION OF MARKETING PROBLEM To the Editor I am. Sir. &c., C. L. ALEXANDER. Hon. Secretary Back to the Land Committee, 12, Pirie-street. Sir—I agree with Mr. R. Madigan that the producer does not receive enough for his produce, as compared with what the consumer has to pay. This is not due so much to his being a poor business man as to lack of ; organisation. The producer must, In an lines of production, adopt a system of organised marketing. Co-operation is essential, and goods must be graded and standardised. The need for this ! is exemplified by the prices offering for i fanners' lots of butter and eggs. Graded i eggs for export today are bringing about lid., as against a few pence a dozen for farmers' lots. Denmark, Hol : land, -and other European countries have no trouble in obtaining the highest prices because they produce only the best. It is pleasing to note that there is going to be a central body established in England for marketing our' butter. In...

GANDHI'S IDEALS CHRISTIAN IN SPIRIT To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 9 October 1931

GANDHI'S IDEALS CHRISTIAN IN SPIRIT To the Editor I am. Sir. &c., ARTHUR H. BLACKET. Goolwa. Sir—Mr. Strutton rightly emphasises the length of his residence in India, as lending force to his opinions. How- <*> ever, long residence in India has made it more difficult for some Englishmen . to appreciate the spirit of Nationalism, m which has spread so amazingly in the . i last ten years or so. During a holiday ', in Simla, in 1330 I lived with a vete \ j*an missionary, who had rendered j;g:ect service to India, but was utterly . | inaale to sympathise with Indians in , \ their national aspirations. His was an ' ; extreme case, although I know of I others like him; but it illustrates a f | truth which needs to be remembered. f 11 agree with Mr. Strutton that we can - j not absolutely (or often do not) free a , man from responsibility for the con fduct of some of his followers, however j contrary they may go to his known • principles; but no missionary would like t...

VIEWS AND COMMENTS LIFE INSURANCE AND PUBUC FINACE WRITING DOWN CAPITAL VALUES ' To the Editor I am. Sir. &c., JOHN LESLIE, Nuriootpa.

Action Against Conversion Dissenters Canberra, October 8. The Treasurer (Mr. Theodore) an- <*> nounced tonight that he win introduce a Bill on Tuesday to deal with dis- <*> senters in the conversion loan. Replying to the deputy leader of the Opposition (Mr. Tatham) today, Mr. Theodore said that, of the 25,000 dis sentients, a very large proportion had dissented only with respect to portion of their holdings, usually the early, maturing securities. It was almost im possible now to ascertain exactly how many were in the position of being classed as dissenters, so many having converted part of their holding, but the number was considerable. Mr. A. J. Barrett, retired superinten dent of the London Metropolitan Police, is completing a round trip by the liner Mongolia, which sailed from the Outer Harbor for Londort yesterday.

NO FIDUCIARY MOVE Mr. Scullin Convinces Caucus STRATAGEM FAILS Canberra. October 8. Caucus today, after a hard-hitting speech by the Prime Minister, re- <*> jected a motion to force an election by securing the reintroduction of the fiduciary currency issue. The majority of the party stood strongly behind Mr. Scullin in his at titude that no definite line of finan cial policy should be embarked upon while the world situation was in a state of flux. Mr. Scullin pointed out that, since Mr. HoUoway had introduced his pro posal a fortnight ago, as a protest against the failure of the banks to grant the £5,000,000 for unemployment relief sought by the Premiers, a new scheme had been propounded, under which credits for works were to be advanced to the municipalities. Mem bers should now concentrate, he said, on urging municipalities in their elec torates to prepare estimates for re productive schemes of works, which should be submitted to the banks, with a view to securing ad...

MAKING HOLDERS OF BONDS CONVERT Bill Opposed In Assembly REPUDIATION SAYS MR. BUTLER [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 9 October 1931

MAKING HOLDERS OF BONDS CONVERT Bill Opposed In Assembly REPUDIATION SAYS MR. BUTLER The leader of the Opposition (Sir. Butler) stated, in the Assembly yesterday, that the people of Australia would never take the word of a Prime Minister again if the Bill for the compulsory con version of bonds were passed. He said it was unfortunate that Par liament had been asked to consider the Bill before members knew what the other States and the Common wealth were going to do regarding the matter. Members should defer ex pressing an opinion imal they knew that. He could understand legislation of that nature being introduced if the Conversion Loan had not been a suc cess. It was a pity, however, to spoil the magnificent succes of that conver sion by introducing the new BilL There had never been any suggestion, when bondholders were invited to con vert their bonds, that they would be compelled to convert them unless they did so voluntarily. The Premier (Mr. Hill)—All that we are asking is that t...

JUDGES' ATTITUDE TO SALARY CUT Some Refuse Reduction Canberra, October 8. [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 9 October 1931

JUDGES' ATTITUDE TO SALARY CUT Some Refuse Reduction Canberra, October 8. An extraordinary divergence of opinion among the judges of the High Court and the Arbitration Court is re- vealed in the final replies, which have now been received by the Prime Minister, to the Government's sugges tion that all members of the Federal Judicature should agree to a salary cut commensurate with the general reductions unde rthe Premiers' Plan, Taking the view that nothing must be done which would tend to weaken the principle that the judiciary should be independent of Governments, the Chief Justice (Sir Frank Gavan Duffy), Mr. Justice Starke, and Mr. Justice Evatt, of the High Court, have refused to accept a cut, though they have voluntarily consented to sacrifice their ~4 4/ travelling allowance while on tour.
