(To the Editor Peak Hill Express.) [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 10 October 1902

(To the Editor Peak Mill Express.) Sir,— Although Mr. Fletcher's let ters have already been so ably replied to lit your columns, I wish to point out '-that Kadina . farmers paid duty solely, on account of the drought, the worst 'on.jrecbrd for o45 years/. Pro toctionists*claim.that ia«ordinary years cient food stuffs for all requirements^ and consequently there is no need for importation. The duty upon turnips as now collected, amounts to £1 per ton, and does not em hh the Common wealth c..)ff jrs. Mr. Fletrher ought to lknow that over three-fourths of the duty, is returnable to the State Trea sury, the increased revenue from the Tariff enabling the Government to re duce the railway rates by more than the Duty so collected. It is further; au evident fact that our present Gov ernment would have either to stop progressive works, or added fully an' additional million wounds to the public debt, if they had not received tho extra revenue, from the Federal Tariff. := Mr. Fletcher speaks o...

In August (wicn I wrote that statement) the tariff then under discussion in the Federal Hoii6c wns 2s per lOOlbs. That--is actually more than what I. said, and amounted to £2 5s 9d duty on 1 2s of turgrps \ (The Senate lias been instrumental in reducing it since then, and 3mve fixed it at Is per lOOlbs, or £1 2s 4d per-ton). I thanjj him, too, because he expresses my feolings when he terms if ' plundering ' the producers who were struggling to keep their sheep alive in tiino of famine.

The 'account is now in the British Museum. Dr. E. M. Close, an Anierican Astronomer, drew public attention to this prediction tliroe years1 ago, ? He says 'the factexiots that the planetary conditions will obtain during 1902-3', and if planets exert a mRgne tic influence on this world, then, the liquid &ry,niatter will readily respond to the combined attraction of the entire solar system exerted in nne singular direction unon the earth.
