PARLIAMENT. Mr. Gillies delivered his 4th Budget state ment in the Legislative Assembly on Tnes-. day, in the presence of a very full attendance o of members and a large gathering of Imer cantile men and others in the galleries. f The hon. gentleman had very little--almost I nothing-to say that was liew, for he found " himself compelled to restate the facts and I propositions of last year. But Ihe was care ful not to bore members, as he might have done, with an old story spun out to a great length, so what he had to say was condensed t into the smallest possible compass and delivered at a'galloping' rate. He-must have surprised himself by the rapidity of utterance at sonie points; he ceitainly iiade great demands on the attention of those who wished to follow him. lie commenced about 25 minutes to fire and concluded at half psst six sharp, and in that time he told the House as muchins. would lijave takeni tvwo hours and a half at his'ordinary rate of speaking.

Tus national balance shleet for the year 188J 90, which Mr. Gillics laid before the Assembly" on Tuesday last, affords in contestable proof of the colony's present prosperity, for it shows an excess of revenue over expenditure amounting to £1,007,559, which is a far larger surplus than any Colonial Treasurer has vet been able to announce upon a similar occasion. Taken as a whole, the Budget statement redounds to tie Treasurer's credit as a financier. His estimates of revenue for the past year were well within the mark, while the total of anticipated expenditure was not reached. Under these circum stances the country may rely with considerable confidence upon the rea lization of the Treasurer's financial lanticipations with regard to the current year. The intentions of the Government relating to the disposal of the surplus, which was announced last year, are still adhered to, but as ...

Cullen, Williamson and M'Donald, will be held on Thursday next. In the East Loddon Riding Cr. Collen has been returned unopposed, and for the Lower Murray Mr. Gray takes the place of ,Mr. MI'Donald, who does not scek re-election. In the West Loddon Riding there will be a contest between Messrs. Horsflall and Allen for the scat vacated by MIr.

For, as in national politics so in connection with the coi duct of our local affairs, there is no question of and importance upon which public opinion is divided, and the ratepayers of the West Loddon Riding will have simply to decide which of tie two highly respected residents in their dis...

AGRICULTURAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Kerang Times — 6 August 1889
AGRICULTURAL NOTES. (Ia"sOM OUR OWN COIRIESPONDENT.) The weather experienced during the past week has been very favorable for farming operations. Ploughliig is being vigorously proceeded with. The crops arc growing well and all vegetlation is in a healthy condition. the pasture lands especially' so. Stoclc of all kinds are in good condition. Naturally the claims of our agricul. turists have not been overlooked by the Government in preparing the tariff which was submitted to the House on Tuesday last. The Premier spoke at some length on the subject, andi if the whole of the concessions asked for on behalf of the farmers have not been acceded to, the advantages bestowed on then in other directions will undoubtedly recompense them. Mr. Gillies repeated the terms on which bonuses wonld be given to on courage fitrmers to launcllh out into other products beyond thoso which almost monopolised their attention. In this direction L250,000 will be spent, and of that sntu L17.,000 will be devot...

MIR. IIORSFALL IN REPLY. [To TnE EnDroI 01o Tilu: KEAI:N. TImES.] Sir,-An old adage says. "a lie that is partly true is ever the most dangerous of lies," and thie miixtre which presumably came from the pen of AMr. Patchell in your issue of Friday last (although I have been credibly informed some of it was concocted at Lake Charm) can only have one meaning at the prcsont juncturo.e and that is to injore me in my candidature for a sest in thie -hlic council. It is on a par with many more of the tactics of this individual and his clique, and worthy of them, that almost en the eve of the election, when it in impossible for my reply to reach the outlying districts in time, they should go back to letters of mine written in 1883 and garble their meaning to try and do me an injury, in order to foist upon the West Loddon electors their own nomince, trying thus to seduce them fronm their allegiance to their own riding. If he thought lie could refute my letter of six years ago, why didihe not ...
