DISTILLERY GRAPES Land Tax Assessments [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 24 February 1931

DISTILLERY GRAPES Land Tax Assessments At the suggestion of the board of the Renmark Growers' Distillery, repre- sentatives met to consider if some steps were possible to relieve the wine and spirits position. A discussion took place on the possibility of improving existing conditions. It was stated that in the Renmark area there were not many settlers entirely dependent upon wine and spirit grapes, but in a num ber of cases such grapes were an im portant factor on growers' holdings. No committee was appointed, but a reso lution was carried, suggesting to the management of the two local distil leries consideration of the question of the formation, of a Doradillo growers' organisation. The recent Government land tax assessment was considered, and the opinion was expressed that local un-j improved land values were rated too high. It was resolved to look into the ' question of lodging appeals to secure relief. It was pointed out that an old grievance in the assessment of unim proved va...

Copland, the Federal Treasurer (Mr. Theodore) said to-day:— "No proposal can be as sound or practical which seeks to t__rust tha whole burden of the economic adjust ment upon the shoulders of the wage earner and the primary produce- alone.

PRIMARY PRODUCERS CONFER Want Costs and Taxation Reduced Melbourne, Februaiy 23. To discuss means of bringing about the restoration of the industry, repre- sentatives of the grazing, agricultural, and other associations of primary pro- Queers met in conference to-day.

The pegging of the exchange rate at an artificially low rate was regarded as dP_ritn.nt^i to the primary producer, and a protest was made against any steps in that direc tion.

Monetary and Commercial WORLD'S WHEAT DEMAND SHOULD IMPROVE [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 24 February 1931

Monetary and Commercial WORLD'S WHEAT DEMAND SHOULD IMPROVE By the City Editor While the latest reports respecting the world's wheat buying markets in- dicates that trade is slow, the recent activity stares that wheat is still -KsnSeo. but that any large volume oi Insmess is only possible when rates are lew. For a number of months overseas trading in Australian grain appeared to be almost impossible. Ekrij- tnis month, however, a compara tiiely good demand set in, and it was if ririm, to receive advices from day to dty of long lists of sales of cargoes ?nd parcels. The most recent 'cable messages, however, state that traders *zs again more reserved. With any: vc£ ***jxfii buying movement, prices nataraQy tend to advance, and then nmers retfce, and the present outlook ts not very promising for higher values.

AUSTRALIA'S CRISIS "LIBERALISM AND LABOR ALIKE CONDEMNED" To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 24 February 1931

AUSTRALIA'S CRISIS "LIBERALISM AND LABOR ALIKE CONDEMNED" To the Editor —lam, Sir, R. A. CIUEtJTO, Murray Bridge. Sir— In your Friday's Issue Mr. W. G. Duncan defends the Liberal Federation machine, but he is hardly convincing. To escape the one machine, we vote for the other, and have been so doing for years in regular cycles. Now that Australia, is almost high end cry on the financial rocks, the people begin to realise that neither of these machines is to be trusted further. It is fair to say that the Liberal and Nationalist machine lias done as much, if not more, than the Labor machine, -with its socialisation schemes, to place as where we are to-day. The eternal suspicion and distrust engendered by these parties must cease, and give way to clean poli tics, wherein there shall be no intrigue, scheming, and hypocrisy. Why should the electors of, say, Start have to vote for a Liberal nominee against a Labor nominee, or vice versa, just because two caucus bodies nave so decided? Aus...

"HOLD THE SOUTH-EAST" OPENINGS FOR MIXED FARMING To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 24 February 1931

"HOLD THE SOUTH-EAST" OPENINGS FOR MIXED FARMING To the Editor Sir—It is pleasing to note that the Chamber of Manufactures has at last realised that something must be done to hold the South-East. Had the advice of Sir David Gordon been fol lowed years ago, and a broad gauge railway been built, a lot of the present trouble would have been overcome. There are a number of good estates which can be purchased at a fair price that would carry a large number of farmers who would make a good liv ing dairying and mixed farming. It does no; look as if wheat will rise for come time, as. according to reports, Russia has enough suitable wheat land to over-supply ihe world's demands. It would pay the Government to assist i tlte unfortunat-c farmers outeide Goy dcr's line of rainfall to take up some of the good land in the South-East. .^ c:cat number of fanners could get. la "first-class living a: dairying ana mixed farming, as all the land is near to cheese and butter factories.

VIEWS AND COMMENTS HIRE PURCHASE FARMERS RESENT HARSH TREATMENT To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 24 February 1931

VIEWS AND COMMENTS HIRE PURCHASE FARMERS RESENT HARSH TREATMENT To the Editor Sir—The S.A Wheatgrowers' Pro- tection Association was the first to move on this vexed question. I nave a letter dated July 25, 1930, from the Government, stating that the question of amending hire agreements was be ing considered. The association had discussed the matter at the council meeting held in June. When the com mittee was formed to consider the question, I applied on behalf of the as sociation to have a representative on it to put the case as it affected the farmer; this was refused on the grounds that the committee (city law yers) knew all about the subject as it affected the farmer. This was amusing, especially in view of the question, why hadn't they acted before? Knowing that the proposed legislation would not ccme before the House at the end of the session, a conference of farmers, called by the Freedom Association and the Protection Association, approached the Attorney-General to include hi...

"SEND US BACK TO ENGLAND" Unemployed British Migrants' Request [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 24 February 1931

"SEND US BACK TO ENGLAND" Unemployed British Migrants' Request Representatives of 735 unemployed British migrants in Adelaide suggested the chairman of the Unemployment Relief Council (Mr. B. H. Gillman) yes- terday that 'the Government should pay their fares back to England. The representatives, Messrs. G. Toft, G. E. Rose, and E. Boswell, pointed out to Mr. Gillman that, before the migrants left England, promises -were made that they would obtain work immediately on landing in Australia. Most of them had been in Australia between two and four yeans, and during that time had had very little employment. They were now wholly dependent on rations. It. would pay the Government better, ifcey said, to return them all to England, where they would be with their friends and relatives and probably obtain some work. . . . . . Mr. Gillman promised that their argu ments would have consideration, and that they would be advised later ol the Government's decision in 'Hie matter.
