A THREATENING DANGER. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 9 March 1894
A THREATENING DANGER. To the Editor. SiV, — It Beetns a pity that your cor respondent, Mr Laurio, should have nothing better to do than abuse a man he neither knows nor understands. 1 do not find fault with grantees, pion eers, wealth owners, or »ny other class, but do find fault wita a svstem wtuch allows the public value of innd to go into private pockets, instead of the public treasury, and then, to make up for this loss, taxes individual earnings for state expenditure. Mr Laurie seems ignorant uf the fact that all revenue comes front land. For in stance, the duty on tobacco, which is made from a plant, which plant grows from tho ground ; also the ingredients which produce alcohol, &c,, &o., all come from the land. Take any duti able goods and trace their derivation and see whence they cornel Why not put a direct tax on the increased value of land ft'id secure this legitimate means of revenue, instead, of introduc ing a thousand and one taxes on pro ductions which...

Hatton on the Assembly. A MOB OF DRUNKEN RUF FIANS. . When the honorable member for Newtown indulged recently in a some what ambiguouB addresB on the liquid, ating proclivities of the members of the Legislative Assembly, his de nunciation were productive of many indignant denials and a somewhat long and. resuttleBs debate. Doubtless the honorable member waff not aware that he was but echoing in a minor key key the utterances of the heir to an Earl dom, the Honorable Harold Finch Hatton, who, in referring to the Legis lative Assembly of New South Wales a few months previously, said : ' The creed' of the squatters and all re. spectable men in the colony has always been that Parliament is so disreputable a place that no decent man can ente? it without losing caste. That they are right in their belief I readily admit, and no one who has observed the pro ceedings' of tho Legislative - Assembly in Sydney can deny that such is the case.

ENCOURAGING SETTLEMENT. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 9 March 1894
ENCOURAGING SETTLEMENT. lo the Editor. Sir, — During the recent discussion on the leases in the Central-Division the Minister for Lands very justly pointed out the manner in which the Erogress of settlement was impeded y the professional selector, who prac tically kept the bona fide settler off the land, in order to inake a profit by forcing the neighbouring landowners to purchase it. The man who wants to obtain land for purposes of culti vation does not, as a rule, object to paying a fair price for the land, if the terms of payment are made sufficiently easy. It is the professional selector who clamours most loudly for cheap land, because the less he pays for it, the greater will be his profit when he resells it. He will not be content with a lease ; nothing will satisfy him but the right oil terms which practically amounts to giving the land away. There are worse things than making free grants' of laud to honest, hard working Bettlers, but to place these and the land jobber on equ...
