The outside grower would Mot at least voluntarily Bear his share of �. That proportion and that was unfair. How Ever now that consumption was overtaken the position had changed completely As regarded currants. Putting principle on one Side and looking at it merely from the breeches pocket r Point of View he would not feel justified in leaving the association.

Cons e ii cantly the wheat Market at Clare a not attained the prominence which it enjoys in other Rural centres. The season How Ever there has been a marked improvement in the Quantity of wheat delivered in Clare for the increased Quantity grown because Hill River estate As subdivided and Cut i into farms has made it Worth while for agents to actively compete for deliveries at care. Already this season messes. F. T. J pm & Sonn acting As agents for the Blyth Mills hav taken or very of Over 5,000, bag and there is still a much larger Quan Tity to come to hand. By next Harvest the quantities delivered locally will be greatly increased As Hill River Farmers will then be in full swim on the portion of Hill River that was recently subdivided.

Clare february 10.-the currant crop is not Likely to be so Large As it was last year. The Frost in the Spring did a Onui durable damage to Low lying Vine Yards and the returns will be consider ably reduced while there is a probability that at least part of the second crop will not Ripen if an Early Winter sets in. In the vineyards not touched by Frost and there Are a number of these tie returns in Mam instances will be larger Rhian Ever before. The Sultana crop will practically sneaking be a failure. Spasmodic picking has started in some of the Vine Yards but the fruit generally is still in an unripe stage and picking will not become general for at least two to three weeks.

English Wool Lettes next week s sales. Quantities and prospects. From oar special correspondent Bradford. January 10, Isis the first week in the new tear looks like being a fateful one from a labor Point of Rie the Lona feared dyers dispute having come to a Frad. The men s notices expired on wednes Day evening and the Battle can be said to have begun. It ii a Boc Kinerly a fortunate beginning to the sew year s activities and what its effect opon business will be cannot yet be definitely stated especially As the trouble starts Juet on tie Ere of the opening of the first series of notions in London for the present year. Independently of the quietness that usually attend the nearness of the London auctions the threatened rupture Bas bad a lulling effect upon the business on change this list fortnight. While the worst has been feared the bust has been hoped for. Business in tops and yarns showed signs of beater ctr Vita a week ago and it seemed As if the Christmas spirit had worn itself out Bot now comes the new setback with All its immense possibilities and dangers effectually Pat Ting a Stop to buying by spinners of tops which they May not be Able to get dyed for no on Lnona when. Business begins again. Since my last week s letter was mailed the australian auctions have been again resumed in Sydney where so far As we can gather from cabled reports there is no difference in the prices compared with those ruling prior to the closing Down for the Christmas recess. Yorkshire buyers were again reported to be buying Brick la. And it is evident that even at the ruling rates there Are Many folks in Bradford who Aro willing or i obliged to operate. The auctions that been next week in London Promise to be interesting la i More ways than one and would probably have i been More so had the course of True business Only run straight for one thing there is rather i More Wool available than at first appeared prob us Al the Whoie almost of the new zealand Wool will be new clip while yet again Many people Are anxious to see whether new prices would be the order of the Day As the acute Wool hunger existing prior to the december sales be. Ginning has now been partly satisfied by the arrival of direct imports. My opinion is that come what May Wool has no reason to decline i value from last Sal Tes. To Beor me jl5 i.

Of m " App a the usual pc London sales held m Antwerp where Merino wools ols Outh american origin have marked on adj Icelow 5 centimes Over the prices current in novent-1 Der. Fine crossbred a have made double the Advance and coarse wools Are unchanged. This shows no the Wool situation. We shall see suit if it does it Means that i the extreme rates current in november december will again be the order of the Day. So far spinners Are concerned Wool has already declined in value but spinners do not always reflect the True feeling of the Wool Market and what they think to Day will not necessarily have influence to Morrow. The coming Sale. Hore Wool than was anticipated will be Avail ahle probably 20,000 Hales mainly crossbred hav ing come to hand unexpectedly with the result that the total now amounts to 135,000 Bales of australian wools mad up of tile following de tails country.

Quantity of South australian Wool for disposal is abnormally Small for the time of year Nils is a striking reminder of the huge direct business done in the Adelaide Saleroom. There looks like being a Good selection for buyers of Merino Wool and just a fair Quantity to go on with but the new zealand wools will soon be licked up. Most of the Trade and even the importers being very hungry for spot Wool position of spinners. Notwithstanding the cheaper 40"s markets of the past fortnight in Bradford there is absolutely no ease in Wool prices in sight although spinners tried to make much out of the Napier report which admitted that owing to american Absten Tion Fine crossbred a were 5 per cent easier. Sup poring we admit this what bearing has it upon coarse wools which formed 90 per cent of the offerings and which were reported As unchanged. This week the news from Wellington where a Large Sale has been held fully confines the stiff Ness ruling in Napier and according to top makers puts out of reckoning entirely any idea of producing a 40 s top at Laid per to. There is. However one disquieting feature about the Wellington Sale inasmuch As out of an offering of 26,000 Bales Only 21,000 Bales were sold while american com petition was entirely absent to Fea Ture Lay have accounted for the 5,000 Bales withdrawal because the withdrawn Wool were pro Bably medium and Fine crossbred a. Which were not suitable for the English buyers unless at English prices. The fact remains however that withdrawals in a keen time always leave behind a rather bad odor. The tasmanian saes have close i on a Par with Melbourne according to Pri vate cables received in Bradford while Wool suit Able for Bradford requirements have been completely cleared off the Buenos Ayres and Monte Videan markets at rates which have never tended towards easing from the top Price. There is an opinion expressed in Bradford that the dyers strike win not Lart Long because so far a great Many of the arms outside the Bradford dyers association show no sign of loaning in the dispute. It ii not a question of wage but simply a test As to who shall be master in his own House whether the owners of the business or the men s Union. In the present temper of Bott parties the struggle can easily be Long and bitter. The Topa Harker. Here is an Osier Sale to Day in Liverpool of a fair Quantity of Merino Wool All of course Hiver plate grown. A Biff crowd has gone to lift the offerings at probably top prices. London is fully expected to show no Chance from last series and in spite of the present labor upset in Brad Ford Wool a badly wanted so that any difference May be in a hardening tendency especially in the Case of Merino. Coarse wools cannot fairly be any dearer although there Are More urgent buyers of the than of any other sort unless it is a half bred Wool of 5o"s Quality which sort is very scarce and dear.

A Well written letter k More i poetic than True and More idealistic Dhan scientific the words of professor Vir Chow Ai materialist Are apropos. He say there is a materialistic As Well As an i ecclesiastical and idealistic dogmatism. Certainly the materialistic is the most Dan serous because it denies its dogmatic nature and puts on the cloak of science because it presents itself As empirical when it is Only speculative and because it wishes to extend the Limite of natural enquiry to questions where it �3 evidently still income the tirade of is illogical and shows lib ignorance and presumption. What does he mean by saying that darwinism is not evolution and also what does he mean by affirming that All scientists Are of the same cult never was a More untrue statement made. The scientists with very few exceptions were All opposed to Darwin and Haeckel and treated their theories with contempt. Of the 200 scientists i could name Only a very few were genetic evolutionists. On monism professor Lombroso the Cronin Logist s3ya that at one time he considered that Haeckel s monism waa the very Acme of science but he has reason now to think quite otherwise and regrets having Given his ideas to the Public be. Professor Larkin of the �-s-a., the great astronomer on this Bead says that he considered at one time the Monistic theory Aei ence s he a written in 70 magazines some 4,000 articles on Monist and wishes that he could recall them As he finds the theory entirely wrong. It were tedious to repeat the recantation of All the followers of the cult of monism. It is sufficient to quote von Hartmann who says in the sixties of the past Century the opposition of the older group of savants to the Dar win Ian hypothesis was 6till supreme in 1 the seventies the new idea began to gain ground rapidly in All cultured countries in the eighties Darwin s influence waa at i its height and exercised an almost also Lute control Over technical research. In i the nineties for he first time a few timid expression of doubt and opposition were heard and these gradually swelled into a great chorus of voices aiming at the Over throw of the theory. In tie first decade of the twentieth Century it has t come apparent that the Days of darwinism Are professor von Hartmann statement fairly represents the recantation of the German savants. Where has been during the last two decade is he another rip Van Winkle that he professes not to know the trend of Modera thought As we before noted the British scientists ignored Darwin and Haeckel and. Their few disciples. The said disciples of evolution Are Joy some called quacks others not quite so severe Call them As Baron Liebeg did amateurs for the last 40 years Haeckel has been described As a fraud even by men in his own Camp so to speak. Professor Karl Vogt evolutionist says no one Ever saw any of Haeckel e life stages " and never will a one of the most Brilliant intellects in South Australia Paris Nesbit. in his work the beaten Side say6 that the basis of the whole universe is spiritual. I Fhi Rit our fanatical Young Friend has very great Deal to learn and it is fair to your readers that they should know what work on materialism he has copied the preface of i am Tecc to the be Jetish budget. Wanted �20,000,000. Great Rise in expenditure. From our special correspondent London january 10, 1312. The fed Ingr of satisfaction with which John Bull Lias been scanning the figures of his Trade record for 1912 will ii a to be feared quickly evaporate As he studies the forecast of the budget figures on the expenditure Side for 1912-13. It is reckoned that or. Lloyd George will Bare to and somewhere somehow fully i two Hundred million pounds to meet the National expenditure for the coming Finan Cial year. Thid will mean that the Chancellor will have to raise 10� millions More than he has done during the cur Rane financial year. How or. Lloyd George will obtain the further sum re quire next year will not of course be known until he makes his budget speech. But owing to the failure of his scheme of land taxation to pro Duce Revenue arid the disappointing re suits from the super tax further Taxa Tion would appear inevitable although the present financial year will probably show a surplus of anything Between four and five millions Sterling. Of the forecaster increase in expend Ture the Navy will probably account for Between four or five million pounds the estimated expenditure on our first Uno of defence during the coming year being no less than �50,000,000, which is approximately five times a much As was spent in 1ss0. At that time people were talking about the intolerable Bur-1 Den of naval and military expenditure and prophesying National bankruptcy if i there was any further increase in the Cost of the services. The army vote it is expected will not fall Short of �23,000,000, and the provision for _ the \ civil services must be on a higher scale than Ever before. The charges for salaries will show further expansion in consequence of recent legislation. Moreover the High Hopes which were at one time entertained that the National insurance act would Lead to i a reduction in the amount required for old age pensions Bave not been realised. In i facing the Cost of the sickness insurance the Chancellor of the exchequer cannot i count upon any appreciable Relief owing i to a reduction in the number of state pensioners. Considerably Over �12,000,Coo will be needed for old age pensions in 1913-14. The Burden of the insurance act will prove much harder than was estimated when this measure was submitted to the House of commons. The Cost of administration is exceeding All expectations and in addition the medical Benefit will involve nearly �2,000,000 More than was originally anticipated in official quarters. According to the Chancellor of the by Chequer s first forecast the state contributions to the working of the act in the forthcoming " financial year should have been �4.3 36,000, apart from the amounts payable in respect of Post office contributions. This figure has now been increased to Over �6,000,000, while the charges for administration which were computed at a very modest sum will exceed All expectations. These things Are of course strictly in accordance with precedence and Only the helplessly optimistic among us expected to find the official forecasts in relation to old age pensions and the National insurance acts anything but very wide of the Mark especially in the matter of Cost of administration. But in this reflection the British taxpayer can find neither Consola Tion nor sugar coating for the budget Pill. Altogether it is reckoned that the total of John Bull s household Bills end general expenses for the 12 months to april 1, 1914, will not fall Short of �200,000.0000. In 1880 it was approximately 79j Milb on 10 years later it was 9�j millions in 1900 just Over 125 millions and in 1905 nearly 160 millions. Since then the total has continued to ? show big yearly increases the figures for the last three years being-1910, �173.0oi,000 1911 �182,997,000 1912. -�1?9.070.000. If the forecast of the new budget is Cor rect it reveals the fact to at since he pre sen government Carne into office National expenditure had risen about 40 million pounds. _ _ i the coastal shipping dispute. To the editor. reference to the merchant service Guild and the coastal shipping dispute i read in this morning s advertiser that a certain shipping manager i had made a statement that on account of the master of his ship not being a member of the merchant service Guild the present trouble did not concern his company. I May state that All the masters and officers on the ships con-1 corned in this dispute in South austra Lia Are members of the Guild with the exception of two certificated for Small ships Only. However both companies to which these two Small steamers belong have other ships. And therefore this Dis Nute includes them also. I am a o. Manning. Organising Secretary.

Which asked that the siding at the Woodla Wirra railway Sta Tion be lengthened As the present one a insufficient owing to the increase in the Wood Trade from 700 to 900 tons being trucked away monthly and also the Large Quantity of wheat consigned from there each year and also that other improve ments be made to the station such As waiting room lavatory for ladies the.

Redmond. M.p., recen Tiyi asked Ore president of the Board of Trade to state the total value of the imports from Canada Australia and new zealand respectively into the United kingdom during the last five years and the proportion of raw material and food supplies to articles. The. Reply of see parliamentary Secretary Tel the Board of Trade took the shape of a somewhat instructive table giving the in formation desired but covering a period of Only four years the necessary data for 1912 not being yet available. The figures which take into account Only the i imports actually retained in the United kingdom afford some surprises. Who. For example save close students of Trade statistics would have imagined that Australia supplied a greater percentage of wholly or mainly manufactured articles i to the United kingdom than Canada and who would have imagined thai Australia s percentage of these things in 1911 would be less than half what it Wadi in 1908? it would be interesting to know what proportion of new zealand s food drink and tobacco import was represented by the two latter items and what is the nature of the drink supplied by Thoi Dominion of the old country. Australia sends us a goodly Quantity of wine and Canada is we Are led to believe guilty of sending us a certain Type of whisky but1 new zealand vintages and still products Are certainly not at present known to the Man in the Street and the tobaccos of a three dominions May be fairly classed As unknown quantities to the smoking Puk i lie Here. The chief value of the tables lies in to fact that they bring out so clearly the enormous preponderance in the imports from our Oversea food Iori our people and raw material for our manufacturers. In the Case of Canada i in 1911 these classes of goods represented nearly 95 per cent of the total retained import in Australia s it was nearly 931 per cent and new zealand s figure was 99.6 thus in 1911, out of a total re trained import from three of the great Oversea dominions Worth Over 04j Mil lion pounds nearly 96 per cent consisted of foodstuffs for great Britain s to Ming millions and raw material or practically raw material for our factories and work shops v a from the Dominion of Canada.

It was reported in London shipping circles Early last month that or. David a Thomas managing director of the cambrian group of collieries would shortly sail for new York to visit the great coalfields on the Atlantic Border of the United states As the outcome of a statement by South West american owner that they can deliver Coal at Bri Tish ports v at lower prices than the Coal producers of the United kingdom.
