FREETRADE AND THE FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 28 February 1896
FREETRADE AND TKE FARMERS. A. ,Mudgee journal says :—' Hundreds O^&if.raero who voted fur freetrade at last ©lection Have had their fiscal idol rudely jjkftttesed? They revelled i« -\ delusion that, under freetrade, all farming ma-1 chinery would drop in .price, and they would thus benefit; but they have 'fallen in,' for importers have decideid to leave prices as they were before the tariff was tinkered with. They pooh-poohed the idea of foreign wheat being dumped down here to their detriment ; but about that also they are now ' quite satisfied,' for the quantities of wheat and flour com ing in every day from California, San| Francisco, &c, has brought them to their senses, and they are suddenlv taught that outsiders are quite prepared to supply the whole of New South 'yValeB' require ments in farm produce. The imposition of the 6d. per bushelon wheat meant 6d. more for the colonial producer, but nothing extra to the cost of living of the colonial consumer.'

A POOR LAW FOR NEW SOUTH WALES. There is so much poverty coupled with infirmity in. New South 'Wales that the deputy medical adviser to the Govern ment has recommended the passage of a Poor Law Bill through Parliament. The Public Works Committee have been ia vestigating the subject of a new asylum at Eookwood for the aged and infirm, and the question assumed larger proportion s in the light of fuller information con cerning the indigent poor of the colony. It is now proposed to recommend that a Poor Law be passed to deal effectua'ly with the pathetic question. We have many noble charities in the country, but these are insufficient to meet the ever increasing demand on their attention and accommodation. A Poor Law was passed ia 1886, but was repealed nine months later. Circumstances have, however, ren dered necessary the re-enactment of the law. The age of cheapness and poverty seems to be coming rapidly in New South Wales, and an army of permanently- de pendent seems to be accumulat...
