Fiscal Facts for Federalists. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 8 March 1901

Fiscal Facts for Federalists. Where does die Wheat Farmer come in, with Wheat selling in Protected Vic toria at a shilling a bushel less than in Free Trade England? Under Free Tnde, Farmers obtain their machinery, farm requisites, clothing, and food cheaper than under Protection, and the port being open, they nave better facilities for the disposal of their produce. If Protection ' benefits ' any class, it does not ' benefit ' the Farmer to the same extent. The Vic torian Tariff Board found that out, and included it in its report in 1895. The Farmer has to pay through the nose to enrich a few private individuals in the large cities where industries are ' pro tected.' Protection doee substantially nothing for Farmers except to tax them. If the manufacturing industries of Aus tralia, by the adoption by the Federal Parliament of protective duties, can take £5,000,000 for themselves out of the com munity,, and the much bigger industry— the farming — can only take ^'5000, would not the F...

Certainly he obtained a few local men employment at the forest thinning, and the Wakool cutting. Any other man could have done the saint;.

Cricket Match. DENILIQUIN v. MOAMA. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 8 March 1901

Cricket Match. DENlLlQt'TN v. MO AM A. On Wednesday last a team of Moama cricketers came to Deniliquin to try conclu sions with a combined local team. The day was almost perfect, but notwithstanding the half -holiday there was a very poor attendance. Mr A. H. Windeyer captained the Deniliquin team, and Mr A. J. Hill looked after the interests of Moama. The latter won the toss, and as1 -the wicket was in first-rate order, he decided to send his men in. Only three of the players reached double figures, J. Farreli being the highest with 27 to his credit, and the innings closed for 111 runs. The teams then adjourned to the Globe Hotel, where a first-class luncheon had been prepared. Play was resumed shortly after two o'clock, the batsmen being Harrison and Heriot. The former was nicely caught when he had made 18, and Langley scored 22 before he was clean bowled by A. Hill. Windeyer gave a fine exhibition of cricket before being bowled by Joss for 58, and Sexton, Fordham and Perrin all m...

HOW TO STOP A POPULATION LEAKAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 15 March 1901

HOW TO- STOP A POPULATION LEAKAGE. 'So argument' was more effective dur ing the recent campaign in Canada than this. Under tlie high-tariff regime there was a, steady drift, of population from Canada to the United States. Since the Liberals won their tariff issue, and re duced the duties, the drift of population from Canada has practically ceased. At Toronto, Octaber. 16, the Liberal Premier (Sir W.. Laurier) said :: — ' The object of the National (High Tariff) policy was to give to the manufac turer and the fanner a home market. That object was not reached. I appeal to the Conservatives to bear witness that their policy ended in failure.' Again Sir Win. L^urier has said— j ' The expansion of industry under the Liberal regime has naturally strengthened the position of the Liberal . candidates. The workmen have no desire to return to the conditions which prevailed in ; 1895. Abundanceofemployment-andhigli wages ?iare.eye'r-prespntSconditiqns, anti the cur-fV rent demand for labuur' i...

THE LOSS OF POPULATION. The true, test of any fiscal poiicy is, does it attract population ; 'does it keep the nativerborn happy and prosperous in their- own. country ? A, policy, which renders a state an attractive community is a success; a policy which repels outside people, and which drives the native-born to '$eek their 'fortunes elsewhere is a failure. ! Tlie High Tariff advocates shirk the issue of the unfortunate loss of population 'Unhappily suffered by. Victoria— a. loss which has caused a serious depression in the state. What is that loss ?
