MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 5 February 1914
MELBOURNE LETTER (From our Speoinl Correspondent.) ^Discretion is often put into..use to great advantage, anil those who are called.on.to use it require to .be .broad minded- men of principle. An instance has just, bpen - .brought, under uotice where it could possibly lpive, been oxer-, cised by an officer of the Customs De partment, who demanded the sum of 114,000 from the Victorian Government as. payment of duty on a "borrowed dredge.". To the lay mind the thing is, preposterous,. and one is forced; to agree with Mr. Joseph Cook (the Prime Minister) who said:—"It opened, iny eyes when 1 saw it. I understand it is a matter of Customs law, but it seems to mo to be a law which works some what harshly when a Government has to pay,. £4,000 duty on a dredge which it is only borrowing. Quite candidly, my- inclination will be,to see if there' is any corner-in;'the. law which can be discovered to the advantage of the bor rowing State.
