(To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 2 June 1939

(To the Editor.) Sir,--Having sat with Cr Miles at the council table for many years, I was naturally interested in his at tempt to better the condition. of the sustenance workers, and I always gave him credit that any business he did bring before the council was well Worthy of consideration. But to tackle a big undertaking such as giving all unemployed in the shire a constant job at the basic wage, about 13/6 per day! If that ever comes to pass with out taxing the ratepayers to any ex tent he will have achieved something thatj few would ever dream of. Most ratepayers find it hard to (pay their present rates, and any small increase would bring a hornets' nest around his ears. It may be uncharitable of me to say so, b!ht perhaps many of those on sustenance have not handled their money judiciously. Some men are born to spend, and others are born to save, and it seems hardly fair for the spender to have to tax the saver so that he can keep on spend ing. There is one thing Cr Miles says ...

(To the Editor.) Sir,-As a one-time unemployed man who, as a member of the Cen tral Unemployed Executive Commit tee, served on many deputations to the Government and its various branches, and who also sat at a great many conferences in the endeavor to ameliorate the difficulties of susten ance and the reintroduction of the basic wage, I am naturally very much interested in the publicity given to this subject recently in the Stand ard, particularly to that part relative to the local council's motion in regard to the matter, and, while quite mod estly claiming that I know something of the position, and still remaining an ardent advocate of the abolition of sustenance and reintroduction of the basic wage, I feel I cannot accept the council's declaration ivithout at least some reservation and qualifica Ltion, and as a basis of my outlook would venture to ask two cardinal -questions, viz.: No. 1. Are not the council elections near at hand? No. 2. What has been the Frank ston council's at...

Let's Write a Letter MR. F. LEWIS, Chief Inspector of Fisheries and Game, C.1. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 2 June 1939

Let's Write a Letter oOo MR. F. LEWIS, Chief Inspector of Fisheries and Game, C.1. Dear Sir,-We are not setting ourselves up as piscatorial experts, nor as leading members of the brain trust. We are just using a little commonsense. The point in dispute is that your department bans long-line fishing as detrimental to the fishing industry and permits long-net fishing. Many fishermen we have, spoken to hold the opposite view. The latter are practical experts. Are the departmental officers practical men or theorists? You claim to have wiped, out illicit long-line fishing ir, many parts, but we have not noticed any appreciable difference in the quan tity, quality,:or price of fish. We do not counsel fishermen to break the law. If long-line fishing is taboo ,then pressure should be exerted to change the law if it is wrong. The ocean is teeming with millions of fish, yet Australia-a maritime nation-finds a. fish diet a luxury. What is the reason? Your explanation that Australians only want...

LONG LINE FISHING. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 2 June 1939

LONG LINE FISHING. (To the Editor.) Sir,-Thank you for your very able assistance in bringing forth the many injustices done to the fishermen of Mordialloc and Port Phillip Bay. I also desire, through your columns, to thank Mr. Francis Field, M.L:A., for presenting my letter to the Fish. eries Department. The Chief Inspector of the Fish cries and Game Department (Mr. F. Le?wis) in reply to my letter published by you and his statement given to your reporter, has not given any positive reasons why long line fishing should not be allowed all the year round as it used to be. In Mordialloc, there are fishermen who have been fishing all their lives, and in other countries, such as Italy, Canada and the United States. of America; there are also fishermen in Mordialloc .who have had Port Phillip Bay fishing every day for 20 and 30 years. Their evidence cannot help being of much greater value to the community, than the men em ployed in the Fisheries and Game Deparment, who have little or no e...
