THE COMMONWEALTH FINANCES. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 11 March 1914
-----------I THE COMMONWEALTH FINANOES, v v MR, CooK, the Federal Prime Min later, has recently been drawing pointed v attention to the very unsatisfactory u state of the Commonwealth finances, At Mount Gambier a few days ago he referred to the enormous increase in the expenditure which had resulted from the legislation of the Fiebor Go vernment, and mentioned that the o Liberal Ministry while having to meet I this had found its revenue alowing a large decrease. It is only fair to otate that this decrease in much less than the figures would indicate, Under the Sugar Acts passed by the Barton Ad. I ministration in the early years of the t Commonwealth it was desired to give a bonus on white grown sugar, An ex. oise duty of £4 per ton was therefore placed on all Australian sugar, £3 per tonof it being returned towhite growers by way of bounty, It is obvious that, except for the £1 per ton differ. eoce, this was largely a book entry so far as the revenue and expenditure were concerned,...

STRICT PRIVACY PREVAILS. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 11 March 1914
STRICT PRIVACY PREVAILS. Reticence is one of the first rules in both the army and navy of Russia. In the navies of other great Powers, for example, there is a keen rivalry between different vessels inmarksman. ship, coaling,'boat drill, and so forth. In the Russian navy this is almost impossible, as the records made by any individual ship are never di vulged. So far is this rule of strict secrecy carried that even acts of heroism per formed by Russian sailors are con. cealed (except in war time). A Rlus sian seaman or stoker may have sav ed his ship or the life of a comrade by some act of self-devotion, but the fact is never made public, although the hero may bo rewarded and promoted. Matters of this kind are only published in war time, Another rule which is observed equally, whether in war or peace, is that no criticism of any kind is al lowed in either army or navy., No officer or man is allowed to criticise another. or to express an opinion re garding any arm of the servie. This ...
