THE FEDHRAL TARIFF. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — The Register — 8 March 1901
THE FEDBRAL TARIFF. To tlie Editor. ? oir— The protectionist president of Man num accuses me. of picking figures- to make a good case for free trade. This is the usual wail from protectionists when ariven into a corner. 1 will take his 'Made m Germany Williams' fienres, and -make a still better case for free trade. The following are Biitish exports icr the last fifty years of Protection:— 1798 to 1800, average £35,000,000; 1805-10, £46,000,000; 1815-7, £41,000,000;. 1818-22, £36,000.000; 1823-7, £35,000,000; - 1828-32. £44,000,000 1833-42, £50,000,000; 1843,7, £57,000,000. It is waste of time and space to quote these figures as Mr. Shearer did, because they show that England's exports increased £11,000,000 only, in fifty years of protec tion; and in 1896, after -50 years of free trade, they, were £296,370,000, showing an increase of. £222,250,000 or. 300 per cent. English imports for the same period were 1846, about £70,000,000; 1896, £441;802,000— increase, £365,855,000, or 481 per...

To the Editor. Sir— I note Sir Richard Baker's reply to my letter, but I am still unconvinced that the report of the commission' was correct. I represented at that date, as I do now. one of the largest agricultural engineering establishments in South Australia, and do not recollect any other firm or person in this particular line of business giving evi dence to the effect that they were in a .position, without protection, to cope with similar manufactures from all parts of the world. My own evidence was an emphatic declaration to the contrary, and I am pleased to see Mr. Grainger's letter point ing out Mr. Baker's error. I would like to be informed of the name or names of the persons or firms who asserted before that commission that without moderate protec tion they could successfully compete with the cbeap labour countries of the world. In reply to 'Not a Federal Candidate,' commenting upon Great Britain's prosperi ty since adopting free trade, T would say that after 200 years of p...

THE ABORIGINALS. To the Editor. Sir— It appears from what one occa sionally sees in the press that the blacks are becoming troublesome, especially in the far north and north-west, where cattle and horse killing is of almost daily occur rence. ' It is high time that the Govern ment took steps to capture and punish. the offenders. V' What would be the best, mode of punishment? Certainly not bringing them to Adelaide to receive free board and lodging and a railway journey, which they probably enjoy, and go back to boast about. Let -tlie Government try the 'excellent ad vice of Mr. ? W. J; McMillan ?? of Bond Springs— a man- who has had many vears' experience among the blacks/ and 'knows what he is talking about. 'He says— 'Let them be punished as near the scene of out rages as . possible, -wi th sdlitary confine ment,' flogging, or roadmaking, and make them -work ^wnire they're afc it,1'- -This would deter them from' 'again offending likewise.
