Australia Golden Opportunity. Tubero is one problem awaiting Lution in Australia which transcends in importance All others. It is More pressing than socialism it is certainly hire practical than All the Short cuts to tie Nillen Nikuni and its settlement would make possible the development of industries throughout Australia to a far More Permute it degree than a new Tariff. Most of tie questions that Are now dividing political Ca ones and bringing Abonit a condition of an est de development throughout our Laid would fade away like to Ming Mist before the Sunshine if the Murray and its tributaries were Only made to fulfil the functions intended by nature. It is one of the ironies of federation Liat having joined the Union Pai by on the strength of representation that a few years of Central administration would do what half Century of divid i control had failed to accomplish we should Noav be brought face to face with tie fact that the. Commonwealth authorities Are doing Little or nothing to help the states to arrive at a better i understanding. The triangular con test is being continued much along the same unies As in prel ederal Days., Sturt discovered and explored the Ray in 1s30. Twenty year latest thanks to the Energy and vision. Of us. H. De. Wal Fox Youn then governor of this state the Murray. Was. Opened to a navigation and during the last half Century it has been the main artery of Trade Between the coastline and that portion of i Kidd Australia served by the Rivers system. Notwithstanding the important part taken by South Australia in tie opening up of these Waterways and the immense service that has been rendered thereby to settlers in Victoria and new South Wales there i still considerable ? ignorance throughout the Commonwealth concerning the Rivers system and tiie opportunities for agricultural expansion along the Murray Darling and Mur Runi Bridgee the average australian opens wide his eyes and gives expression to his astonishment whenever he is told that tie navigable length of the Murray and its tributaries is equal to the distance from Adelaide to port Dar win across the Effot deut and Halfway Back again Down these great Chan Nels there daily flows to waste in the son an enormous volume of water and when the Day Peridis come Australia with one voice laments i the fact that nothing has been done to store the prel ious Fli Iid in flood time that it May be made available during the drought. Every one admits that tie right thing to do is to place locks and weirs across the Rivers at stated intervals and turn to sic court the great storage basins which nature has generously provided close to the streams. But nothing is done without a single exception Ivery candidate during the present political Cain Paigin in this state has expressed himself in favour of a Vigo Rous policy in connection Ith the River Murray yet past experience justifies the fear that the first practical proposal for accomplishing some thing would not Only be treated with sceptical criticism but would have to run tie Gauntlet n of Ucli opposition. Would members ror instance of pre pared to it once Sanction tie erection of locks Between and the Border the six locks deemed necessary by engineers to be completed within say. Five Yea re that would be a test of the sincerity of their promises and the government might Well consider the advisable less of Briti Gehg Forward some such proposal. Acc have been beating the air quite Long enough with out courteous protests and our desire to placate the other stat Sand some thing More thao talk is urgently required. ? if Softli Australia set Ito Avorie Audi constructed tie locks which the. Com Mission of experts declared will be required Between Blanch Etori and the Border the Money expended could be deducted from the third share which this state is willing to Bear in connection with. The Complete scieme and the beginning of a work of this kind would strengthen our claims to riparian rights if a Case is Ever put be fore a Legal tribunal. The Enterprise could also be justified from the state Point of View for failing the agree ment of new South Wales and Victoria to a comprehensive. Undertaking it Woi ild be necessary for South Alistra lians to do something for themselves to order to provide compensation for the water which is already being diverted. Navigation must hand in hand with irrigation. Tie one is the Corol Lary of the other. Without the cheap transit facilities provided by the water Way irrigation kits would never be Able to make a Success of i b.eir1 Holdi uss and this is a proposition which sir William Willcocks has distinctly Laid Down in connection with the great irrigation works with which he has been connected in Egypt Mesopotamia and in other countries. The alleged arid land in our River valleys is not the de Sert that it is represented to be but Good pasture country awaiting tie application of that great fertilizing agent water. The commission of experts estimated that there Are 50.000.000 acres capable of irrigation in the three states of which 2,500,000 Are in South Australia an area exceeding by 400,000 acres the largest total acreage of land Ever put under Cereal cultivation in any year in this state the experts further committed themselves to the statement that the River Murray judged by its length of Channel and area of catchment should be one of the great streams of the work they went on to say it is therefore mat Ter for Surprise that the problems which it is the function of this com Mission to investigate still remain unsettled where the great Amer an desert existed a few years ago there Are to Day \ thousands of Miles of Ca nals distributing water to 8,000,000 acres of kind which last season produced crops Worth �20,000,000. The great american desert has been Avi Ped off the map. There is a Call to Australia to wipe something Oil the slate and that something is tie neg Lect to take advantage of a Rich inheritance represented by Bur unused Waterways 7 v ,.there is no other question in aus to Ilia that Calls for statesmen Broad gauge Long Visioned men much As this River question the settlement of it is of such pressing importance to Australia .1 that patriotic legislators should come together and agree to drop the divisions of party politics until the Nate ways Are rendered ? permanently navigable and sufficient. Supplies of. Water. Are guaranteed for the carrying out of extensive irrigation systems. If tills were accomplished it would Settle As by a magician Wand the Unrein pity id trouble and would increase pro auction in Australia to an enormous extent. Consider Ito. The promises that candidates have. Made on the hustings me reasonable Hope is that when Par i ancients meets the government of the Lay will recognise ? the wisdom1 of adopting a More aggressive policy than hitherto in Corine Etiopi with River mat ers. Victoria and new South Wales should be told to the most emphatic inane in that s6ulh Australia. Insists m some finality in connection with the dispute without any More dil Lydall ing. Either they must agree. To join hands in a Complete conservation Chenie or Liis state must have re Jourse to Law in order to test the be a Litof of diversion Avoris completed my co template by the neighbouring 8ta Les. Sir Edmund Barton Sheri prime minister declared at Corowa hat the Commonwealth Constitution Ivas framed to. Be worked by. Reason Ible men and that therefore there Mist be an exhibition of Wisdom to be ratio1. And Good sense betwee ii the states of the commom Ealta considering that South Australia has been writing letters to the other states Liol Ding conferences and in various Vajs negotiating for Over half a Cen Tury it cannot be Trutlin fury urged that we have been want aug in reasonable lessor lacking in Ioder Atibel the1 of engineers estimated that for provi Diug a Complete system Tif locks and weirs tie Cost would be a a proximately ?�2,Uoo,o6o. This is about the sum which Western. Australia Laid out in a local water Schemeit is ridiculous that three states like new South Wales Victoria and South Australia should Haggle Long Over spend ing this a mint of Moljery consider id the colossal Behi fits Itiat would Flo a from the streams of water stretching Over 3,000 Miles into the Interior would be of Inesti Mable value to Australia and yet the magnificent result can be attained at a comparatively Small Cost it does not say much for our statesmen or for the matter of that for our reputation As an enterprising people that there should be this Long delay in coming to an agreement upon a subject. That is Vitai to the welfare of Esi Cli state immediately concerned and indeed to australian Progress. The Driver probe lera is no problem at All itis capable of the simplest solution and Engi neers have pointed the Way times with out number. At a Cost of less than �1.000,000 each the three states Cou Eer hed am not Only provide permanent Waterways one and a half times the distance across he continent but they can make available for dose settlement 50,000,000 acres of country that is now practically uninhabitable owing to the want of water. There is room for Mil Lions of people in tlie5 valleys of the Muriny Lac Laii and Darling Why when. Australia is languishing for want of population is this Golden Opportunity persistently neglected. Eaf Piile displayed by the Vari Ous colonial 1gk-venuneut8 relative to the selection of May 2i As Empire Dav is indicative. Of a growing sense of tie practical value of patriotism As a National asset and f that stand Point tie innovation May be Reg Ardeil As an auspicious augury of the solid Arity of the British Empire in the future. To Day thousands of school children in All parts of Kin Edward vast dominions will receive instruction specially resigned Byr Editn tonal experts to inspire patriotic enthusiasm and inculcate intelligent appreciation of Stile duties arid response abilities incidental to British citizenship the form in a Whilce tiie import amt lessons Are to be presented to the scholars has t largely to the discretion of the teachers but the list of suggested topics is sufficiently comprehensive to afford at pie scope for the nost diverse personal predictions. This year australian schools will participate in the co lob ratio of Empire Day. Thus completing a world encircling Chain of Imperial sentiment which cannot fail to strengthen the Bonds of Union be tween the motherland and the Coli lies. The Success of the movement has been due in a Large measure to the enthusiastic advocacy of the Earl of meath whose persistent efforts to quicken the Public sense of Imperial National and civic duty Are worthy of the High est commendation. In a speech delivered at Lames Hall in Aulon Hist year the Earl epitomised the objects of the league which he represents As follows in tic first place we May say at once that the ideas of the promoters of Empire Day have absolutely nothing in common with the condition of mind ? popularly known As jingoism we. Desire no aggrandizement of the British. Empire for aggrandizement Sake. We do not believe that the honour of the nation or the respect due to tie Flag in be in any Way Piug meet de by wars carried on for Mere Mili tary glory or do we desire to of Laurit the glorious Standard which has braved a thousand yews the Battle and the Breeze defiantly in the face of any potentate or people. We wish to live in peace and Amity with the whole world. ,. There is no occasion for boasting. It is Only the weak who need to boast. We Aro conscious of the niacin licence and Power of our Empire of its absolutely unique character of its extent and almost boundless re sources of the loyalty of its populations of the unrivalled Freedom and lil erty of person enjoyed by them All these things we know. There is no occasion to recapitulate them constantly but it is Well occasionally to re member that the blessings which an All knowing Providence has thought fit to bestow upon us May take unto themselves wings and Fly to other nations should we prove unworthy of the Trust reposed upon us. Recognising that in youth the mind is More especially malleable and therefor open to receive lasting impressions lord meath and his co workers wisely decided to concentrate their efforts primarily upon the important work of instilling into the minds of tie rising generation such Noble and inspiring sentiments As those of loyalty to a common sover eign of patriotism towards a common Empire of self sacrificing Devotion to wards fellow citizens of a state enjoy ing the rights of Freedom and personal Liberty in a greater degree Luin the inhabitants of even the most advanced republics ? the prominence which will hence for ii be Given to those inspiring themes in schools and colleges cannot fail to make a profound impression upon the Young people of Australia. The late or. Pearson in bus pessimistic analysis of National life and charac Ter asserted that patriotism is dying and predicted that the modern English Man would change his fatherland As lightly As he does his coat no one who witnessed the remarkable demonstrations of loyalty in the various Colo Nies during the dark Days when British supremacy in South Africa appeared to be trembling. In the balance could truthfully apply that accusation to the present generation of colonists. The Transvaal crisis demonstrated in spite of the cynics who would have us ? be Lieve that patriotism is Only another for self interest that sentiment counts for a great Deal More in National emergencies than would commercial tariffs or formal treaties which Appeal Only to cold business motives. It must not be forgotten however that there is no natural Affinity Between the diverse races which owe allegiance to the British throne. Cosmopolitanism is inimical to the spontaneous develop ment of the primitive Type of Patriot ism which Springs from instinctive love of country Ami racial prejudices. Those elementary passions Supply no Force for the fusion of such antagonistic races As the French canadians the dutch settlers in Duth Africa the exclusive by thins f5 Van Lia Vian d our own German colonists. The ties which bind these apparently incompatible nationalities to be motherland and to each other Haye. Been evolved by a slow and Complex process. What has brought these younger nations to great Britain jul Ndu eed them to Spring to Cven before you called upon Vliem ask Feia ser Chamberlain in tie House of commons a few years ago. I it is the Imperial instinct which you Juri Leand,sco.-r? self i5eoin inon interest of common duty of As Iiran ser Mutual support of Pride in the great edifice in which they Are All members it is with tlie1 object fostering and strengthening that Ini Pervai instinct which denotes the a Iii of the Empire that the anniversary of the late Queen Victoria birth Lias been invested with a new significance. Tie innovation is in Larmony with modern theories regarding tie. Scopo and purpose of education. The ideals and impressions which children derive from their academic exercises cannot fail to make a profound impression upon their characters. In order that the rising generation May be Able to fully realize their obligations to tha state they must Nave a rational Rebii caption of the magnificent heritage committed to their care acid they can Only learn to emulate the loyalty of their forefathers by acquiring a Tho rough knowledge of tie history arid achievements of the Empire to which Tivey belong.
