Adelaide Express and Telegraph (Newspaper) - November 24, 1920, Adelaide, South Australia National Library of Australia ? maximum skate temperature to\2 . To Day prices regulation work of the commission. An interesting review. The ninth report of fee prices Regula tion commission which has been presented to the governor is As follows your commissioners desire to refer very briefly to the changing conditions Vicli Lave governed the control of Price in. Australia. In 1914 and-1815 the main abject Tive was to prevent undue profits by reason of accumulated stocks. This Ivory was j performed by state quasi judicial tribunals. With the Progress of the War it became necessary to control tie prices of primary products each As wheat meat in theft. J sugar hides &c., without regard to world values. From 1916 this responsibility devolved upon the Federal executive since the signing of the armistice the War pre cautions regulations had been gradually relaxed. Concomitant with the release of r Trade restrictions the shortages of imported commodities and the plenitude. Of paper Money profiteering became a household word. With the Advent of fall ing markets for Taw materials restricted pub he demand and deflation of credit the work of the pm Mission would re late very largely to prices and conditions of Sale which Are controlled by associated. Interests Trade agreements honorable understandings a. Results obtained. The commission does not prop oae to enumerate in this report the apparent re sults in values of specified commodities of its work during the year. It wishes to emphasise the fact that its Efficacy or necessity cannot be gauged by the number of prices filed by Law. It is not the function of the commission to excuse or justify its existence or to advocate its continuance parliament Baa conferred upon it wide discretionary Powers and its policy and procedure Are by legislative provision., Spe Bially untrammelled. The commission has exercised its functions without fear or favor and Las pursued a Broad policy without regard to its acceptance or rejection by any particular Section of the Public. Previous reports show that Price control As opposed to Price fixation Nas been adopted wherever possible. Thin practice has entailed frequent checking of the costs of such commodities As flour bread milk Oatmeal biscuits soap Jam infant s foods and gives no indication of the amount of effective work done in de laying increases in prices until justified by costs. Undue profits by Large companies supplying such commodities air Artu Icin fertilisers Kero Aine condensed milk Gas and electricity have been prevented by re Quiring Tae approval of the commission be fore rates Are advanced. In Tegard to clothing the publicity of the commission s enquiry Ian has no doubt been of consider or Able Benefit to the consumer and further it a k6 made Early an Ifil. To test the basis of the control imposed. The principal lines connected with. The Cost of Nous no . Timber bricks Cement lard Ware Are engaging toe attention of the commission. In All these enquiries the commission wishes to acknowledge Tae reasonable attitude of the commercial Community and the invaluable assistance of the press. Apart from the private control of prices by Trade associations there Bas been an amount of More or less involuntary profiteering but on the whole the consuming Public has benefited to a much greater degree than is generally recognised. How far such Benefit is due to the presence or influence of the commission it is impossible to say but it May be stated that the Cost of the commission to the state per individual has been less than one Penny per a nomm. Future work. I the commercial editorial of a Reading australian daily recently contained the following comment the worst features of company life an Australia just Are the Way in which Chain of company directorates is being evolved and the failure to it Ublish adequate statements of a the present act confers tie most comprehensive Powers combining a it does the provisions As to com Mercial trusts common to anti Trust Law with the dire at Power of Price fixation. The Powers of Price fixation have in addition been extended to cover the sliding Ecale Prin Ciple ., Gas and electric Light its dividends and wages As in profit sharing and conditions and Ireum stances to Deal with list prices adopted by associations which Are not commercial direct Power of Price fixation was first conferred a a War measure. The 1919 act expires on november 30, 1921. If the intention of the legislature to continue the double barrelled provisions of the present statute the quasi judicial 7 ower3 conferred May have to be exercised against powerful vested interests. It i therefore essential that the status and terms of office of at least the executive officer of the commission should he secured by parliament in order to preclude the cuss ability of political pressure from the government of the Day. The Early consideration of your ministers is invited to. This important aspect of the future work of the commission. The report is signed by messes. D. It. Davidson chairman. P. J. \.

The Paris correspondent of a London paper writing on september 20, says a week ago i was at Versailles and seized the Opportunity to see the Little Vil Lage built for Marie Antoinette close to the Petit Rianon when i noticed that the windows of the Latterie or Dairy were still boarded up and that the whole place had a curious air of loneliness and looked at it with the More interest be cause of. The strange Story told by two ladies in a Book published in 1911, which described remarkable incidents that had be fallen them some 10 years before that Date. They visited the Petit Rianon and saw buildings and details of scenery or so they said not As they exist to Day but As they were afterwards proved to have existed in Marie Antoinette s time. They spoke to people whom they supposed to be living persons masquerading for some undisclosed reason but whom later and roller enquiry led them to believe to be wraiths of people at Marie Antoinette s court. Mentioning my visit and this Story to a woman Friend two Days ago she told me that she also had had a a Tiger adventure at the Latterie and had informed Many people of it some years before the Book in question was published. She said that she noticed the boarded up windows and won dered that was inside. She therefore went up to one of the windows to look in through a Crevice in the boarding when to her great Surprise she distinctly Felt her self push i away. 1 Marie Antoinette s ghost. There was no visible person there and it was Broad Daylight. But she entertained then no doubt and she entertains no doubt that this was a supernor Mal happening and she had on eerie feel ing which the associations of the place May explain in part. What was even More interesting was that when she asked various people in Versailles Why the particular window we boarded up she was told that it had been so covered because Many passers by had i seen or alleged that they had seen the ghost of Marie Antoinette and this had made a great Many afraid to go near. Versailles is visited by so Many travel lers and the Romance of the place is so great that it would be important to know whether any other British visitors have observed anything of the kind reported.
