'There Is no doubt that Auitra lla Is approaching a eritleal period In her national history, and the one brijht spot appears to be pros pects of obtaining cheaper money overseas.' When a representative ot ine ncgm» ailed upon Senator A. J. McLachlan [Honorary Federal Minister) on Wedues lay, he found him considerably perturbed :oncerning the present and future econo mic position of Australia— more perturbed, jbvioiisly, than he cared to admit; but t was not difficult to appreciate the seri lusness with which he viewed the position into which the, States and the Common ircalth have been placed. ? : -.

"UNHEALTHY SITUATION." Mr.Gilbert's Motives. LONDON, January 2. [Newspaper Article] — The Register News-Pictorial — 3 January 1929
'UNHEALTHY SITUATION/' : Mr. Gilb«rt'« Motivcj. / : LONDON, Jnauary 2. ? 'Mr. Parker Gilbert's verdict is certain to be questioned in Germany,' says The Daily Telegraph's diplomatic correspon dent. - 'It may also awaken mirnriw among those who assumed that his advo cacy of the revision of the Dawes Plan is based on Germany's incapacity to con tinue the stipulated payments. 'Mr. Gilbert is influenced not by a speculative estimate of Germany's future prosperity, but by the general unbealthi ness of the present situation. His main argument is that the period of testing Germany's stability and reliability has ended, and the time com* to return to normal conditions.'
