Adelaide South Australian Advertiser (Newspaper) - January 15, 1881, Adelaide, South Australia National Library of Australia one became they Are utterly useless unless it is shown How the borrowed Money has been expended and what in Terest it returns in each of the colonies Between which the comparisons an made. One Colony May Hare political railways which pay no interest at All another May be Only supplying urgent need. Whichever Way the comparison May turn in either Case the same Rule with regard to borrowing cannot be fairly applied. Of course everyone knows that South Australia is tartly hotter than new zealand but it is not easy to see How that fact can form any criterion by which the ability of either Colony to pay its debts can be judged. We will Supply Here Tome information which May Aebisc the economic in forming a Correct judgment of our Posi Tion. We have Loans contracted and authorised to the amount of �10.000,000. Of this sum about �6,000,000 Bare been spent on be Toul and reproductive Public works sine 1861 we Hare Laid out �13jf50,99$ in this Way of which �7,750,000 have been furnished out of our Revenue. Most of this has been applied to the development of our res Moea. The alienated and settled land which has been rendered productive and valuable in consequence of the outlay has not yet been taxed to assist the Revenue in consequence and yet the interest has always been paid with rigorous punctuality and without any straining of our purse. A stave this resource if our Revenue should flu off and we have besides nearly �600,000 due on land sold available it Wii the present year and 1889, and an almost unlimited Quantity of land available for tale. Surely these facts ought to be of client to Calm even the Buonomi to anxiety on the subject of the South Australia debt. But we need aay no More. The article is by no Means written in an unfair spirit but the writer As we have shown is evidently deficient in knowledge of the subject of which he treats. If he will apply to the agent general for the statistical Register the auditor general s report and the Public works report for the year he will place himself in posses Sion of reliable official information which will guide him safely when he next desires to favor his readers with a dissertation on South Australia. The australian parliaments with one exception Are in recess. Hie representatives of the Colony in whose capital the inter colonial conference has again met have been called together after an adjourn ment of four weeks. One or two urgent matters May justify the re Ata Embling of the new South Wales legislature still it is evident that neither exciting debates nor arduous labors will Lonj detain members. When they met after the general election next to nothing wan done beyond swearing them in listening to the vice regal speech voting a reply to it electing a speaker and a chairman examining writs and passing the eds Sirms orders. The programme submitted by the government was generally approved of by the Leader of the oppose Etsu which is As yet somewhat nondescript. But for the growl of the Blu Dee lion of the protectionist a no sound would have Dis Turbed tiie Harmony of the initial proceed Ings. Or. Buchanan s protest on behalf of restrictive Giacal policy was supported by three members Only truly an insignificant exhibition of the strength of the protectionists in the Assembly. This episode 4id not however occasion much delay and after a three Days sitting parliament adjourned till toe Aday last. In the interval at die festival sir Henry Parkes being naturally in an excellent humor cheerily refined to the ugh Promise of the new Brih of to. Tea expressed it a of stiff with the great legislative improvement of adding thirty five More members to the Assembly and asserted oat it character Jav Tauy compared with that of its pre flee Esson. It May be presumed that he was not simply joking Whan he declared oat the outflow of the Pokey of the government would be a number of very important measures measures which when acc fitted to the Public would elicit the admiration of everybody the chief object being to save the country from the Aad Fly Saster of a change of self Praise is vulgarly supposed to be so recommendation. Yet it is astonishing Tow effectual in political life tin blowing of one s own trumpet May be rendered. On parliament resuming the other Day it was soon Manifest that the session would be alike abort and comparatively unimportant. Its principal duty May possibly be to endorse what the representatives of new South Wales do at the conference. Mean while ways and Means will a pushed through tenders called for another rail Way a municipalities Bill a Bui to establish a system of local government fisheries Bill and a measure to Amend and consolidate the Law As to land titles will be brought in a Bill to alter the Law relating Tou seaworthy ships Aad the navigation act of 1671 being Al ready introduced. Even this modest pro gramme would in All likelihood give Rise to Esu mated discussion Wen it not that Mem Bers ire pretty Well agreed on the subjects proposed. There is however one Bone of Contention Over which some wrangling May be expected. The question of water Supply has of late created considerable agitation in Sydney. For a time the dread of Awater famine alarmed the whole population whose aqueous supplies were rigidly tinted while the streets had to be moistened with Saltwater. The Reliance hitherto placed on the botany swamps had Given Way. It was announced that the demand was nearly double the available Supply which bad been seriously diminished owing to the decreased rainfall reckoned at Little More than half tiie average of the past year. In other words the water Revenue did not meet the expenditure and it was requisite to j draw on capital on the reserves of previous Jean. But a hopeful change came at last. Panic subsided As the Waters apparently Rose. Unexpected stores of water were obtained from a seemingly dried up Reser voir and the fear of dearth was greatly lessened. Nevertheless it was prudently insisted that a similar risk should not a incurred in toe future. If the citizens fortunately escape privation of the kind during the remainder of the summer still they will hardly be Content with things As they Are. An influential committee have been vigilantly looking after their interests in this vital matter and they complain tha their efforts have been walked by the of government. The merits of the dispute have not much interest for outsiders who Are Little concerned about the rival schemes for supplying water to Sydney the probability being that from one source or another that City will be secured henceforth against the danger it has lately experienced. Between the competing schemes a Compromise May be possible. What is known As the Kenny Hill scheme is evidently most favored by the citizens but it is hardly skely that parliament will Sanction it if the Engineer in chiefs report is confirmed and adopted. By that scheme the report shows the water rate would be �66,000 More while the estimated Gross outlay is about three millions Sterling whereas the Prospect scheme would entail an expenditure of �1,170,000. This financial difference apart from other alleged comparative defects of the Kenny Hill High pressure scheme would seem to be fatal to the acceptance of the project which nevertheless continues to be the More popular of the two. It May be fairly assumed notwithstanding the indignation of Sydney inhabitants against the government on this question that the ministry would have the overwhelming support of members in their preference of the cheaper scheme should they actually decide in favor of it. The attendance of the leading members of the colonial cabinets being required in Sydney the work of their respective go vet menu must go on without them. In no instance is their absence Likely to be very detrimental. Particularly a this True of Tasmania whose affaire display quite a Roseate tint a our Hobart correspondent notes. Ministers have no deficit to bother them and no taxation schemes to Ponder Over. No doubt or. Giblin and or. Moore who appear for that Colony at toe con Ference will be greatly a obtained in their part by this sense of Relief from Ordinary ministerial cares. Having no anxiety arising from financial troubles they May Appeal to the solvent position of Tasmania a an exceptional proof of its importance As a Factor in any calculations. The Colony has attained this enviable height mainly be cause the government has had the Wisdom to impose and the people the Good sense to Bear extra Burdene which the require ments of the state rendered imperative. These have for the most part taken the shape of direct taxation which is submitted to without grumbling and collected without difficulty. It would be Well were this policy adopted in provinces of the australian Mainland at present exhibiting an ignorant impatience of taxation. It should be our aim to diminish the taxes on articles of Universal consumption and in crease those that wealth will have to pay. As a great writer on this subject has observed taxes on food and raw material constitute a Drain at the Spring head which will soon leave tin Channel dry whereas a Drain to the same extent after the River has run its course drawing supplies from All aides and v about to empty itself into the Ocean to no perceptible difference to its it was the principle of sir Bobert Peel s system to relieve Industry at the expense of property without distinction of classes. This should be the principle of our legislation Here. It is on tin card that this question of direct taxation May be mooted at the conference and in that Case no doubt or. Giblin will have Fri going to say respecting its application to tag mania and the Desoix acuity of its Genera 1 acceptance in Australia. Hjaj3.
