THE NORTHERN TERRITORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Register — 7 March 1901

THE NORTHERN TERRITORY. A correspondent writes:— 'Last week a number of gentlemen interested in the Northern Territory met at Scott's Hotel, Melbourne, for an informal discussion on the affairs of the Territory. The Hon. J. S. Butters was in the chair. Mr. Dugald Little spoke strongly in favour of the com pletion of the railway from Oodnadatta tc Pine Creek. He said it was not compli mentary to the representatives of New South Wales, Victoria, and South Austra lia in the Federal Cabinet that they had to succumb to the ironic personality of Bij; John, and leave the direci line to Europe in abeyance, while tlhey authorized the straggling line from Port Augusta to the west. A railway expert who was present said that a narrow-gauge line was quite unsuitable for a transcontinental express service. Mr. M. Keddie suggested a $e\v broad - gauge line direct from Corio Bay (GeeJong) to Port Darwin. Mr. Joe Brad shaw said that if the Government would only authorize the construction of the line...

A TRACT FOR THE TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Register — 7 March 1901

A TRACT FOR THE TIMES. We have received from Mr. W. A. Magarey a pamphlet under the title of ''Free Trade or Protection.' The object of the well-known writer is to assist others in placing the fiscal issue clearly before the electors. Wisely, therefore, he has content ed himself to a brief discussion of genera! principles, which are clearly and forcibly set forth. A strong point is made that 'protection stands unadvocated by any ac cepted authority' among economists. If a restrictive tariff succeed -in its object tlie imports necessarily decrease in volume and the revenue declines; and Mr. Magarey adds:— 'A protective revenue is therefore a vanishing one.' He also explains how, when at last the raising of the tariff totally prohibits importation, the whole of the tax by the aid of rings and trusts controlling prices goes, not into the revenue, but into the pockets of local producers. On the other hand the 'application of free trade is 'a crescent and not a . waning revenue.' Alludin...

THE FEDERAL TARIFF. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — The Register — 7 March 1901

THi) FEDERAL TARIFF. To the Editor. Sir— All those who argue, as does *Manu- ? facturer,' to the effect that 'the manufac- I turers living within the Commonwealth I can only be protected against unfairly com- I penng with foreigners through the linposi- I tion of customs duty which is burdensome I upon the consumers,' I ask— 'How do you I prove it?' I undertake to Bhow a reason- I able method by which protection mig^ht be I afforded to tnose manufacturers without I the imposition of customs duty, and with- I out the burden of preferential bonuses, ant I at the same time to provide for the pro- I duction and collection of an annual re- I venue of sixteen million pounds sterling I within the Australian Common wealth. But I -while the Australian producers and the I consumers alike are so enamoured of cus- I toms dutjr aud excise, where is. the good I of suggesting a substitute for them? Does I any one attempt to contradict the truth I that ''with protection the consumers suf- I fered s...

IS RELIGION DETERIORATING? [Newspaper Article] — The Register — 7 March 1901

IS RELIGION DETERIORATING? . The Methodist Conference occupied most of Wednesday in an earnest discussion on the advisableness of ministers being purged by the Holy Spirit of God so that they might be more successful in converting 'parents and in turn leading to the better attendance of children at Sunday-schools. One speaker claimed that at no period had the devil been stronger than at the present time; he was an educated devil, and had educated machinery. The Rev. W. G. Clarke's secretarial report on Sundav sehcpls showed that there arc in this State 43C schools associated with the Methodist Union, with 4,215 teachers and 36,324 scholars, a decrease of 25 schools, 202 teachers, and 1,292 scholars. Some of the falling off was accounted for by the culmi nation of Methodist union. The Rev. W. T. Sixapley remarked, that {South Australia was not alone in the deplorable lack of interest on the part of parents in the spiritual welfare of their children. English returns showed that in- th...
