Ministerial Parsi Muny the minister of education and Post Pujue. The minister of education has known us the correspondence alluded to in the Para graph which appeared under this heading in the Register on thursday and has Askea us to give us replies to certain let ters. The matter of a school of mines for port Pirie has been the subject of negotiation fur some months. It was brought under the notice of the Tini Ayi. By a memo rial irom residents of that town and in reply a dlr. Batchelor stated that he would give a definite answer when he received certain particular which he asked should be supplied him. These were furnished to the Alinger and he then dispatched the following answer to or. Newman Barwell january 21. Sir i am directed by the honourable the minister to acknowledge receipt of your letter of the 13th ins Zivins part ulars a to the curriculum Ana Constitution of the Council of the school it mines and industries proposed to be opened at Pott Pirie. The minister desires Rue to inform you that a tic Grant asked for. Viz. , is quite out of the ques Tion and As no amount is provided on by year estimates for the proposed school be will be glad to know it a Grant of �50 were made available Tor the remainder of tic current financial year whether the coat Mittie would be prepared to go on with inc projected school. If so the minister win immediately place the matter before Cabin of for approval. 1 have the honour to in 4c. Jaugu Bath Secretary minister of education per g. W. R. Lee the re to thu communication was the letter to Viii air. Barwell which appeared in the her Tor of thuraia and which stated from the private and Public experience that the lion the minister has gained in nutters of technical education it Misc to be Patent to him that �50 is utterly inadequate to inaugurate and maintain a Mph vol of mines. Be would also Call Atten Tion to the amounts Inid to similar in tit Uuras at Moonta Hacunda and caller for maintenance yearly and contend that port i Irie is the most suitable Centre in the state outside Adelaide for an institution Zaeh a we intend to initiate on february jump. Bau ukr acknowledged the let Ter by the following communication which was dispatched on wednesday february 20 i have the honour to acknowledge receipt of your letter of the 13th inst. A the subject of the amount of �5u offered of a if runt to the committee of the school of mine proposed to be established at port Pirie. In reply 1 beg to inform you that the lint Grant to the Gawker school far one year was �50, As against a similar amount offered to port Pirie for four month. The amount of �1,000 asked for by the committee is much More than Dou ble the sum granted to any school of mines a sept that at Adelaide where there Are pupils. The reference to a difference Between my platform utterances and administrative action is obviously due to a Lack of comprehension of the conditions under which ministers control the expenditure of Public funds otherwise i should regard it As an insult. 1 would again Point out that the government have no fund from which they can draw for this purpose and in offering �50 for die remainder of the financial year they Are going outside the parliamentary votes. Had this request been made prior to the estimates of expenditure being placed before parliament i should have endeavoured to obtain a larger Grant and will be prepared to do so when sub Mittins next years estimates. I quite appreciate the earnestness and Bona fides of the committee and am in entire Accord with them in their desire to see a school of mines worthy of such an important Centre As port Pirie. But would suggest that their earnestness will not be any less apparent if they accept the position As it exists and begin the classes in a Small Way As other centres have done. If the course suggested be adopted it will greatly assist me in obtaining a larger Grant next year the minister of education seeing the paragraph in the paper on thurs Dav containing the text of the letter sent to my. Dispatched the of Howins additional letter february 21 since writing my letter of Jwta Day i note that your february 13 a been published without doing me. The Courtesy of waiting for a reply. I can Only conclude therefore that your object a rather to stir up political antagonism than to promote the establishment of a school of mines at port Purrie tee Bedster a maternity Home shilling fund.

He is emphatically of opinion that if the intentions of the liberals bad been made dear months ago the War would Long since have been honourably concluded. Had the dutch won in the struggle they would have taken every Penny of the stakes. Curiously he by implication charges great Britain with undue and foolish generosity i her treatment of the dutch. In Cape Colony and Natal he remarks the dutch have enjoyed Equality of rights with britons and their language is officially recognised Side by Side with the English language. Still the dutch Are not satisfied and so Long As the two languages Are permitted peace and the fusion of the two White races a Fol be impossible. The British certainly ought to take Steps to abolish the Taal with a know ledge of the English language and England s literature the descendants of the commandants who have fought so bravely will occupy the seats of the mighty the Universal loyalty of the British colonies to the motherland during the War has been a great lesson to the dutch in South Africa.

The it purse proposal which the Vic Torian government Girga in connection with die Pacific and Cape Cable schemes has alien to die ground. Or. Pup. O Queensland and or. Ward of new Zea land both condemn the proposal. The opposition of new zealand came As a Surprise for or. Seddon was die first to suggest Pool ing die receipts. The Federal Campaign. My Holder and or. Batchelor at the town Hall. The Adelaide town Hall was the place selected by die Premier Hon. F. W. Holder and die minister of education Hon. E. L. Batchelor to begin Timeir Federal Cam Inion As candidates for die Hause of he present Atiles and on thursday evening their initial addresses were delivered in the hearing of a Large number of electors. The acting mayor Alderman Wells pre sided. Among Thoice on the Prado pm were nil die members of die ministry and a viral other legislators. Or. Holder who was received with loud applause on rising said he was proud for the first time to address a meeting of electors of Australia who had now a voice in the politic of the continent under a Constitution unusually Broad based upon die people s will. That Constitution must be conserved unaltered at least until sufficient experience had been gained to determine the result he i glad however dial die Federal government proposed to equalize die franchise and har Monize die electoral Laws throughout Australia. Cheers at present die Nequa due in die different states were perplexing and die matter should be dealt with As Early As possible by die Federal parliament. Clause 41 of die Constitution die insertion of which he secured at die Adelaide convention prevented die possibility of and one possessing die franchise having it taken irom him or her. What was therefore pro posed was not harmonizing the franchise at die expense of any one but by adopting die broadest of All this would not be an amendment of the Constitution needing a referendum but could be obtained by a Sun pie Federal . The capital should be Cho sen a speedily As possible so thai be Federal government and Federal departments might have a permanent Home. Many interesting questions arose in connection Widi this which had received wonderfully Little consideration. The Federal territory would not be a part of any state and would not therefore be subject to state Laws. It would have no representation in the Federal parliament but some method of self government would have to be devised. The proposal of die Federal government that die land within die Federal area should not be alienated had his entire approval hear hear and should be Fol Lowed by provisions for a Large measure of municipal self government the state control of such matters As licensing Lam Sani tation police and education would have to be provided. He regretted the nature of the references of the prime minister to the Northern territory which certainly should be taken Over a Federal territory by the common wealth cheers and developed by the construction of a transcontinental rail Way connecting Ood Nadatta Widi Pine Creek. This was As no Cestary and deserved As much consideration As the construction of the important line to connect port Augusta with Kalgoorlie. Which would incidentally develop mount Gunson Tarcola. And other important Mineral properties. Cheers among die first matters with whih the Federal parliament would have to Deal were a number of machinery acts and the civil service in which it was to be hoped Merit rather than Mere seniority and die equal rights of All die states to share in any patronage would be considered. The min Biry and naval in Encis should provide not for Defiance Tut for defence not for a standing army but for an enrolment of such citizen sol Diers As had so greatly distinguished them Elvce in South Africa. Cheers the interstate commission should be constituted As soon As possible to Deal with preferential railway tariffs Light and Harbour dues and anything which might derogate from Equality and Freedom of Trade throughout the Commonwealth. A judicature to constitute the High court of Austraha ought to be one of the earliest measures considered and be entirely agreed with lose who urged that judicial appointments Louki be made from amongst australians. An audit a customs regulation and acts relating to postal telegraphs and Telephone services would have to be passed is soon As possible. A Penny Post age might Well be secured cheers if t could be shown that we could afford the luxury. Old age pensions would be far More satisfactorily arranged by the Federal authorities tinn by the state seeing that Many of our people moved from state to Tate so frequently. The experience of Victoria recently showed that great care would have to be taken in formulating die so time. A conflation Law probably some what on the lines of that introduced to die Sydney parliament during its last session a or. Wise would meet Widi his support cheers or. Barton s references to coloured labour and die necessity for a White Australia were rather vague and be Toped that his action would go further Nan his words seemed to indicate. Cheen a recent conversation Widi or. Mow minister of native affairs in Natal would if anything could have strengthened his views regarding die importance and urgency of dus matter. Coming to finance the watchword must be Economy Economy Economy. Hear hear but for this policy pursued in South Austraha during he last seven years the income tax exempt ton would not now be �200, but �150 or less. Economy would be urgently Neces sary in All affairs of the federation. The new Federal expenditure to cover die salaries of the governor general minister members of parliament new departments. A might be fairly estimated at about �400,000. There was besides this die Cost of die transferred department in excess of the Revenue they would produce which Grisat be set Down at �14250,000. Thiec we had borne in the past m Dut it was no new Burden. The problem we bad to face was How con we pay our Way As heretofore meet �400,000 new Cost and make up die loss of inter colonial duties recouping these duties did not mean a new impost out merely the Exchange of one for another. No state could afford to surrender any port of its existing revenues. The Federal authority took rom us absolutely the right to Levy Cus Toms and excise duties but it must not encroach any further on state right by levying direct taxes. These were the Only four pcs of Revenue available to die states and every Penny of direct taxation levied by the federation meant so much less available for Levy by die state authorities. Customs and excise must be die Only sources of Federal Revenue beyond the ser vice taken Over. Customs and excise were bad taxes hear hear in that they were paid by importers to whom die govern ment gave the right to Levy on con Buiners die tax they paid Widi such additions As they pleased. Hear hear no one knew exactly How much taxation a paid or How much of what he paid found re Way into the state Treasury and How much was directed into private coffers. We would not tolerate die farming out of our land or income taxes and yet All customs and excise duties were in effect fanned out taxes n this Case however Tivey were necessary evils let us make diem As Small As we might cheer customs and excise last year without licences and fees realized n the �7,600,000 Odd. Add to dus die new expenditure of �400,000, ind half a million which must be raised in new South Wales by any conceivable uni form Tariff before she came up to the Gene ral Commonweal i avenge and we had die total sum to be raised of �800,000 per in Nam. Less would not suffice unless die Revenue of die states was to be diminished. Nei Titer free Trade nor a protective Tariff would produce this sum. Free Trade would not because die duties would be insufficient and Protection would not because a really protective Tariff excluded imports my prevented Revenue. Hear Bear we must therefore have a Revenue Tariff. Loud cheers the total value of imports into die Conanon wealth in 099 was �6300,000, less inter colonial produce and manufactures �28,000,000, fearing Date extra Colo Rel value at �31,500,000. The Constitution gave to die Commonwealth so Long As it remained unaltered die Boon of free Trade on �20,000,000 Worth of imports. On the �34,500,000 we had to raise �8500,000 of Revenue. Intoxicants and narcotics Worth �200,000, yielded customs duties �3,100,000, excise on intoxicant and narcotics of �lmjo,o0o. Licences and few produced �300,000 total �4,300,000. We should not be Able to dispense with the excise on sugar. Ifs Caseau needs Mast trois would produce �900,000, which added to Dre sum hot Aud made �5,000,000. We had Stefl �32400.000 Worth of impart left to yield �3 ,500 ,000 of Revenue. At 11 Par cent on All ext noon Al floods we Wom i realize Hus amount and Here 1bey Cam to the Crux of the whole question Wila was what a Odd the free list be it wan impossible to conceive of a Tariff without s tree Liat. We wonted a free hot to include merc Bauduc required far tic of Pur territory such is Iron Timber agricultural fencing wire wire netting raw material Tor manufacture and so far As we could afford it die Neon Sirica of h be. Cheers if our free list included import Worth �800,000 15 per cent duty on All the rest would give us the sum we needed. If our free Bat arc �10,000,000 16 per cent average duty would do it if die free Li-4. Were �12.000,000 17$ percent average duty would do it his own opinion was that we should keep the free list Down to � near �8r500,000 Tut pos sible to that the duties might not average More than from 15 to 16 per cent sir wit Iam Lyne estimated that die natural Iro Section Wal id every Clam of merchandise secured in the Nhac of freight insurance ac., averaged 20 or cent surely hat added to the 15 or 16 per cent before men toned should satisfy die Nonafar Tarr. Of course we should All be plotted to do i out duties altogether but those to whih be Hud referred were the Madest with which the financial stability could be a wired and we must therefore accept Tho inevitable. Cheers he had served Tho we ii in die Paris Anent of South Australia for almost 14 year and be thought lie might ssi cry leave Horn of in the hands of been if they did him the honour to return him As a member of the Federal House of representatives they com Ray upon his utmost endeavours to promote the Best Siiter Esu of Thi state and of the com Roo Natahn of Australia As a whole. Cheers the Hon. E. L. Batch Beer who we Wett received announced himself As a labour candidate. It was he said important that he should do so because apart from the Tariff question there was a wonderful unanimity of opinion All die Candi dates for Federal honours. They could not judge from the Federal manifestos to what party a Man belonged. They might judge that a policy was iacued by � labour organization and find it signed by die president of die australasian National league. Hear Bear imitation was tit sincerest tonn of Nutter it and he the gentlemen who had reached the platform of the labour party. The bulk of die australian people belonged to the Artisan and working comes and the legislation of the australian Par Vantent would be More acceptable if there were present in die legislative Halls a fair of labour. Hear hear it had been Aid that die labour members of South Australia would have no influence in the p ship parliament on account of their want of mental culture. The very people complained of Bud according to Booc who made the complaint in the two few Yean absolutely dominated the whole parliament and yet they Tad Only 14 members out of a total of 78. As a matter of fact Dut was nil rubbish. He had not heard any nor know proposal to alter die Constitution and it Mutt be a Nightmare which made or. Bar ton protest to vigorously inst it no doubt the part payed by a prime mini after in securing die Constitution caused Liim to be Feor Lul. It would not be fair u attempt to alter the Conett tuition. Lot it have u fair trial hut it was Risku Soiu to suppose that it win sacred. It was a human machine which must be kept up to Date. Cheer lie agreed that a Large standing army was for Aastra la. It bit been proved to Denton Hora Tion that die citizen ral Diery was All they required. Cheers he believed however in proper equipment the by Stem in eng land by which officers must have a Large private income to ? their to i Thonh mud be guarded Gamst or they would not get the Best men in die Community. Hair Bear Ever one beb eved in Economy in admin trat on but they must Sec that it should extend to die common wealth As Well u to die tittes. There was no need to increase the governor general salary beyond �10,000. He favoured tic federation of the railways and there was a growing feeling in that direction rite chief advantage of that a i a uniform gauge would be that it would work against centralization. He was not prepared to pledge himself for or against the railway to Western Australia. He wanted to Sec some real advantage which would accrue from it the other states owed it As a duty to South Australia to keep die line of a White Australia to die further most shores and to that end die Commonweal i should take Over the Northern territory and construct the Overland railway. He was glad that die increased value of die lands of the Federal capital would be for Ever secured to die Federal government hear hear As die Yean went by the City worm in crease in size and vane and die rent Roll would go a Long Way towards meeting Federal expenses. Cheers he favoured old age pension nil and conciliation being dealt with uniformly. On die burning a Ueston of die Federal Tariff he believed b re was ready very Little difference be tween the opposing forces. He approached the question from a protectionist Point of View. Whether they called die taxation protective or Revenue it mattered Little he people would have to pay die Money. He favoured putting raw materials die no cessies of life and the greater part of agricultural machinery on the free lift. Cheer no reasonable protectionist objected to customs duties and excise on intoxicants and narcotics. Whatever Cui Toms duties thy put on articles As against raw materials was Protection and while is free list would amount to 13 of Lions he believed an 18 per cent average Tariff would give sufficient Protection to die australian manufacturers. By having a cer Tain amount of Protection new industries could be established and prices could be kept Down by bringing into Competition die weal manufacturer and the outsider. Cheers to drive away a manufacturing Popula Tion would not be to die advantage of die agriculturist As they would not have a containing population for Timeir products. They recognised that they could not Force upon the people a Strong protective Tariff neither com they have free Trade. What Ever Tariff they decided upon they should see that tic local manufacturer was fairly protected. Cheers questions having been answered die chief Secretary moved and or. W.
