It w quite needless to repeat any thing with respect to the exceptionally Ian level of values which has ruled this year. Surveying the Calendar year we no be that the highest Point touched by Bradford tops was 31a. Tor common. Descriptions and 32 d. For supers compared with 20d. And 22d. Respectively during 1898. Lie year opened with tops at w. And 21d., and closed a 31d. And 31d. � on january 7, 1898, Ops were quoted at 18 d. And 19jd., and on december 30 of the same year 19jd. And 21a. I is calculated that the highest Point of the season was probably reached during the fire half of the week beginning november 3,-Wheri the rang of Menno and Fine Croe reds was not less than 75 per cent above the average rates of last season. It is estimated that for the half year now ended the average value per Bale of the Wool Dis posed of at the whole of the australasian sales was slightly if anything Short of 60 per cent higher than during the previous Wool year which ended on june 30, 1899. Dalgety 4 co., limited compute that the total sales in Australia during the season 1898-9 amounted to 799,379 Bales of a Gross value of �8,730,525. Allowing that the ales in the colonial centres during the woo year which is now half gone will amount to the same As in the preceding year at the values which Bare been ruling the Mone tary return will be dose on �14,000,000. Exclusive of the Wool sold Here there were some 350,000 Bales disposed in London Der int the last Wool year which realized �323,750. Presuming that the rates which Hare rued during the last six months Are maintained during the remainder of the year the same Quantity of Wool will realize Over �6,000,000. Thus allowing for there to be a decrease in the australian clip this year of 100,000 Bales it is estimated that the increased return owing to higher prices will exceed 74 million pounds. On the question of the probable decrease in the clip the rear a return of australasian Wool exports from july 1 to november 30, 1899, compiled by Dalgety & co., is interesting. This shows that from ail the colonies with lie exception of Tasmania and Western Australia. 555,531 Bales were exported Dur ing Tolj live months a decrease of 69,069 Bales on the corresponding months of last year. The Only increases were in South Australia 11,223 Bales and new zealand 2,713 Bales. The other colonies show the following decreases Victoria. 0,699 Bales new South Wales 49,662 and Queensland 23,644. As far As rates of Money Are concerned 1899 was a year of comparative dearness. Be Bank of England minimum rate of discount was altered on six occasions this being the same number of times As during 1898 and 1897. Whereas in 1803, however the rate never went beyond 4 per cent., the rear which has Juat dosed has witnessed a 6 per cent rate which indeed still prevails. It bus not been necessary for the governors of the Bank to quote As nigh As this since 1890 and in fact 1399 com Jucs with the first year of decade in other a specs also. The lowest Point to which the quotation fell last year was 3 per cent., a compared with 2i in 1898, Ana 2 per cent in each of the three years preceding. It is necessary to go Back to 1390 to find a year in which discounts could not be effected at the Bank of England at leu Chan 3 per cent. The average rate throughout 1s99 works out at 4.21 per cent., a compared with 3.24 per cent in 1sb8. N 1803 the year of financial unrest the Bank of England rate of discount was altered to fewer than 13 times Bat even then a 21 re cwt. Rate ruled at time and the highest quotation did not go beyond 5 per cent while the average for be year was nearly 1 per cent below what it was during the last twelve month. Again it u necessary to go Backo 1890 to discover a higher average for the twelve months. Another indication of the firm Ness and the upward trend of Money last year u obtained from the fact that while in 1897 the financial quotation was reduced on four occasions and rated on two and in 1898 a i movement in both directions was equal last year there ask Only two reductions whereas on four occasion it a found necessary to increase the Price of Money. The year opened with a 4 per cent Tate but before january bad much More than half run its course this was reduced to 3j per cent Ai it was Felt that the former quotation had ceased to be effective. Early in february there was a further reduction to 3 per cent u supplies of Money were abundant and rates in the open Market again showed Sixes of falling on. With the exp Naon of Trade and the usual autumn demand Jor rid july witnessed a Rise in the rate by per cent and Early in october the in creasing tension of the political situation in South Africa caused the. Goro nors of the Bank to take the precaution of putting up the rate to 4. Per cent. A couple of Days later the most unusual course was adopted of again incr Vamg the charge for discounts and 5 per cent was quoted. Not for Over a Quarter of a Century hat the Bank of England rate been changed More than once m seven Days while equally unusual was the alteration of the rate on any other Day bul thursday. The stoppage of sap pres of Gold from the Transvaal Wai the Mam came of making Money mow stringent and on the last Day of novem Ber 6 per cent was charged for accommodation. The last occasion on which k High a rate ruled was in 1882. The comparatively High rate which has ruled for Money periods of political uneasiness and the impending reduction in the rate of interest which the Stock bears have combined to cause the quotation for British Consols to be lower than during 1898., last year opened with the Stock at �111, As compared with �113 at the be ginning of 1898, and i it closed with the quotation at �99, against �102 10. Coa sols were at their highest Point in january and thereafter continuously declined till �93 5s was touched a week ago. Durini 1398 the Stock was . �106 15and this comparatively Low Range was occasioned far the Roshod incident. Last sept enter the Transvaal Troutte be Gan to seriously affect the securities and �102 7s. 6d. Was recorded he Lowe to in a 1s85. There was a slight recovery but the recent. Reyenes in 6outh Africa were largely instrumental in Jet Nitt Consols to be quoted lower than at any time since 1893. Sout australian 3� per cents opened at �107 5s., compared with �110 in 1898, and closes at �104 against �107. The highest Point reached during the put twelve month was �108 3s., and the lowest �104. In 1893 the highest was �110, and die lowest �107. South australian threes opened at �93, and closed at �94, compared with �100 and �98 respectively during 1896. The highest and lowest Points touched year were the opening and closing quotations. There was nothing of importance trans acted in the local wheat Market on Satur Day morning.

New year s Day of tic christians commemorated the Dedica Tion by mysterious rite of the holy in Fant to religion. The juxtaposition of Christmas to the new year however May be regarded As an ingenious ecclesiastical device to deepen devout impressions for while the Date of the Bethlehem incident is Uncertain. Not until the fifth Century was the roman cast of the birth of sol chosen to Murk the most interesting of All. Fatalities. Though warmly accepted in Europe the religious festival was accorded a Billing reception in Britain and its adoption was later prohibited. In some american colonies. In preference to a formality relieved by harmless indulgence Puritan reactionaries introduced def Tasiola for morbid intros Section which in a modified and often profit Able form survives in watch ight ser vices. Lecent years Nave witnessed diminishing numbers and Fervour Anion zealots who take pleasure in the pain of a Microscopical examination of the Little acts of daily life unmindful of the fact that Many of those acts have no special significance. Breezy practical com nonsense declines to suspect . Impute the unworthy motives which the neurotic with moral hysteria attribute to themselves. Increasing facilities for Exchange of ideas have revealed. A family like Ness even in the infirmities of All Mankind and while Engen Dering intense and broader sympathy modern tendencies have substituted duty for ecstacy As the noblest of human realizations. Incessant activity leaves Little time and less taste for feasting upon one s own vitals. If in the isolation and Sanctity of the pre scientific age men thought that prayer is labour in these Days of congested cities and tireless philanthropy a rever ent conviction has led in Exchange to the Choice of the motto labour is player. The sensible and observant traveller along life s Highway declines to keep company with dubious melancholy but he notes As be passes the milestones How very quickly the changing characteristics of the country and accommodates his Pace to Tho probable Daylight. Unfortunately for those martyrs of method who would plan life s Campaign with the precision of a punctual railway time table the great events in the careers of men do not tit it. With chronological divisions and there is a growing impatience of the doing of Good by Rote and As per hand Book. There is much Force in what has been called the recessional of the individual soul we live in deeds not years in thoughts Sot breaths in feel Nat not in figures on a dial. We should count time by heart throbs. He most lives who thinks most feels the noblest acts the Best. Not the Peculiar property of this any other generation is the emotion with which on turning aside we Mark the fast dowing River of Days carrying intelligent creation into the uncharted Ocean of eternity. Ancient pagans were profoundly moved on the first Day of each year sought to propitiate destiny directors mud of that occasion accepted As a. Good Omen the so cops of any Enterprise. To the ideas of propitiation and link we arc pro Bably partly indebted for the custom of sending new year s gifts and Many ivies of superstition May be traced to the same source. A parody on Divina Tion is preserved in the German amuse ment indulged in at the last witching hour of the old year of mailing tin Kad into a Basin of water the fantastic figures thus formed suggesting Many simulations to a Lively imagination. It is a kind Providence which has placed a cumin before Tho future Jet Wrob what intense eagerness would the world gaze into a magi Cian s mystical Mirror to behold a of coining events in South Africa for instance. Bit with what result assuredly not the promo Tion of happiness even of Content ment the Eagle Eye is for the Eagle. Man i. Intended to take Short views of life. Sufficient unto the Day is the evil thereof. And what he Hicks in prophetic vision that Hope which Springs eternal in the human breast can Supply in ample stimulus to Rise again after Many prostration a new year the word new sounds As a Clarion Call to worthy action. Tho old year disappears with its errors and its defeats of Good purpose its disappointments and its sorrows. Then Lei the dead Pant Bury its dead. A now year with fresh opportunities has come let us make the most of u Aud them. Away with excess of Brood ing introspection the Winter of Leader skies and leafless Trees is overcast. A new season of Bright heavens and of melodious nature is upon us. Hope and Joy arc often indissolubly joined to Gether. Life lags sorely in its Treadmill Guise of Mere routine am performance. The thrill of existence is in the Delight of discovery Conquest of hearts and anticipation of wonders yet to be. The Sunshine streams equally on. Mau Siou and cot Aud so Tho Felicity of Belli 4s conferred irrespective of class of condition. Yet happiness like honesty when pursued As a matter of policy dudes the Chase. The peasant merrily humming Over Bis Spade is wooed by a fairy who May not be. Found by a Cross grained Prince though he lavish Kalgoorlie upon the search. With to Day the business holi Days will close and the season for the Exchange of formal compliments will end. To Morrow men and women will resume their places ? in the of toilers but Tho recreation which has been enjoyed should not be evanescent the earnestness with which the Soldier responds to the demand upon his Cour age and loyalty is the Best Token of comradeship for individual neglect if it does not involve disaster increases the hardship of the Campaign to. All concerned. Happiness is not at the end of the line of least resistance selfish Man Ever yet discovered it. The Joys of life Are for the selfless. They who give most receive most and a remembrance and practical application of these maxims May make All the Dif Ference Between moral Success and failure to Many a Man and woman Dur ing this. Last year of the dying Century. Notwithstanding the National trials of the present and the anxious Outlook for the future we May sincerely and confidently wish for on readers the fullest realization of the meaning of the Good old salutation a Happy new year. Britain the Transvaal and . Leyds is performing a wretched if lucrative task. He Lias Long been paid to vilify the British so As to bring against them the Force of european Public opinion and now be has stooped so Low As to try to incite a political agitator in Egypt against the very country which is holding Back the Savage tribes who Are eager to attack the Boer troops. He has not succeeded in Bis purpose of securing european intervention in favour of the dutch republics but he has at least per formed his contemptible Mission with disgraceful thoroughness. How near he May Bare Goue to. Lea Guing official Europe against Britain we May never know but his Success in arraying an Al social Europe in hostility to her has been most marked. He has been Worth to . Kruger More than his weight in commandeered Gold. His chief instrument has been the Continental press and his credit balances both in Bullion and in human credulity have been enormous. He has drawn upon Irth with remarkable boldness. Any ethical considerations regarding methods do not Trammel him and Why should they is he not the representative of people who use the White Flag i a ruse de Guerre shoot Down Stretcher men attending to the wound pm after an engagement and Shell the women s Laager and the Convent his most outspoken press snout pieces Are in Russia France Aid Germany. Russia has just deprived Finland of liberties which the Young Czar Only Bitely swore on the sacred Coronation paths to maintain and has thus crushed the Constitution of the most enlightened and advanced. State subject to the Imperial Crown yet now its Tess is overcome with indignation be Muse the British government will not allow englishmen to be treated As he lots and because it prefers to keep the Cape colonies As British posses Sions. The russian journalist How Erer has not a Large Choice of subjects and abuse of the British is a harmless diversion and. Perhaps an exl usable one also As the papers dare not discuss Home abuses newspapers in France in the same direction Hare. A congenial task Roming so closely after the Fashoda humiliation. Besides the French press tysver did have any Penny qualms about imitating Ananias and the conscience Price of some of the papers in the Gay capital is very reason Able. It is Only natural therefore that borne of. . Leyd s most conspicuous Svec esses should have been gained through the parisian press. Several weeks ago we Learned from Paris that Ladysmith owing to the insubordination of its Garrison had surrendered Ard this is Only one of numberless items of a like order taken from the prolific source. Quite recently however the doctor must have been saddened by the tone of one influential Paris journal the Figaro which for Aries sly published the evidence of the court of cassation an exposure that was nearly a deathblow to the conspirators of the . It has paralleled its other feat by sending a special com missioner to England and the reports of his investigations do not represent Ovnik Paul As the saintly Patriot for whom . Leyds has so earnestly striven to arouse sympathy and support. The most Brilliant achievement How Ever of the agent for the Boer republics has been his Cal Tetiuk a Rainert the British a certain Iii out of unofficial Public opinion in Germany in spite of the friendliness of the Kaiser. Jealousy of the Extension of British Dominion cannot account for this nor inn the influence of Rich monopolists who have made handsome profits in Transvaal Trade railway and other i a Cessious. Though the probable loss of these under a British government was a Good Iio int for . Leyds to work upon. Psychologically the subject is into resting As demonstrating How the tick Lessly false statement of Only one Side of a Caw May convince even an intelligent Community especially if it is Al a distance from the actual scene of trouble. In this View one May question whether the British government is Wise in persisting in that Lazy indifference to Force go press opinions upon which an eminent Frenchman lately commented. Lies which Are told with great Nofsia Riveness and without contradiction Are Apt to be believed and How easy would be the disco Blure of . Leyds while the Irish nationalists in Ireland vehemently protested against the action of the British government irishmen in Cape Colony quickly United to express appreciation of thu con duct of the High commissioner. Ger mans in Hamburg held meetings to denounce British proceedings but Ger Man colonists in Natal in territory temporarily under Boer Power declared that they would rather be shot than take the due i Side against England. Consequently at one place the Noble Christian Boers looted the Homes of these germans and turned their women and children out to spend the night in drenching rams. In consideration of such Facto it is amazing that barefaced lies against the fair Fame of England should be so readily believed in. Germany by germans. It is equally astonish lug that even in South Australia there should be sympathizers with the Boers Aud especially that Home of these hold be people who came from foreign lands and have pro Sii ered with the Aid of the perfect free Dom which britons with characteristic altruism extend to All people who Settle amongst tue i. Yet Forsooth the British government is acting wrongly in demanding for the poor Uit Lander foreigner As Well As English Mcvon less fico Down than they in Australia have so Long enjoyed and still enjoy a Cau not believe that any really intelligent colonist from foreign kinds would take such a preposterous stand. He would rather Saji loft my own land to escape from the bondage of an Ironbound Lul tary system. 1 have lived in a British Colony under a British govern ment for Many year. I am not a britishers ? but 1 live been treated exactly As if i were. Every Benefit which a of i Tinner has May Bare is if i wish. The British Here Are i suppose. A the British elsewhere. I Here is no sign of brutal grasping greed oppression and injustice Here there is no indication of tyranny and 1 Don t credit the assertion that there will i in South Africa. Am 1 to be Lieve then of these people whom i know All the nonsense that i am told by others who Ore not acquainted with them As 1 am it seems incredible that a people who treat me with every consideration should go to War without a Ery Good cause Aud i la not believe it a Little Calm reasoning of that kind would go far. To prevent such incidents As that reported from broken Hill last week and would allay that equally unpleasant division of feeling which has been noticed lately in some parts of South Australia. Certainly when great Britain is defending herself in a War begun by an enemy who broke solemn agreements with her. And is now invading her territories any South australian colonist who May openly take the Side of the foe should expect to be the subject of highly uncomplimentary comment the National Revenue. Holiday no Holiday Tho under treasurer May be relied upon at the close of each Quarter to produce his re venue figures with unfailing and Hiehle Cummen Zaoie regularity. For financial purposes the second division of the year dosed on saturday and the approx Nutte returns have been made Avail Able to the press with characteristic promptitude and Courtesy. The Decem Ber Quarter is not a particularly Active time with the receivers of Revenue and the figures which follow should be considered in relation to that fact the treasurer s revised estimated of the year s receipts was �2,734335 half of is �100,168. Six months of the year Bare gone and yet Only �14161,075 has been paid into the Treasury. The september Quarter yielded �614351, and Tubaj which bus just closed contributed �u4u.?24. Together these amounts fall Short by. �105,093 of the blk months quota of the estimate but there is nothing unusual in such a Posi Tion the latter half the year is Al ways the most productive for in it Are received the great bulk of the land and income taxes in themselves the de Cember returns display no specially noteworthy features. The total receipts were �3,6s1 less than in the similar division of the financial year 1&98-0, but any significance which that statement might otherwise have possessed is lost in View of the fact that probate Aud succession duties alone snowed in the latest Quarter a comparative decrease of �26,030 the amount contributed by legatees a year ago was �37,562, and on this occasion tie contribution bos fallen to �11,532. This source of receipts must always necessarily be purely speculative for the treasurer of a British Colony Lias not Power such As lob Ngola possessed in Matabeleland to give a Happy other dispatch to some property owner when the Royal Treasury Ehst its equivalent needs replenishing. The toss in succession duties was practically balanced by gains on other lines Revenue. With �304,755 railways yielded �9,242 More than in the preceding december Quarter and in two Yean the income from the state lines of communication bos increased to the extent of �40,262 on the three months. Customs duties have produced �s,19tt More on the comparison of the year and Rostand telegraphs an Addi Tion of �&295. From land and income taxation has come �1.124 extra and from waterworks a slightly enhanced receipt the department last indicated however does not earn More now than it did two years ago and the general return from this expensive Branch of the unlit. Works and services is. Not Ade quate to the recently greatly increased outlay. Upon it. The territorial receipts shorn another reduction the sum in december Quarter 1899, having been Only �20,557. Against �244538 a year earlier this Means a shortage of �3,681 which by a coincidence Corre sponds to the net comparative. Total reduction on the Quarter a still larger amount if the period of com Parison be two years instead of one. Of course this is partly due to conces Sion land tows the effect. Of which should be ultimately beneficial to he re venue credited to sources other than the land office. Still nothing else i connection with the state account is us remarkable us the enormous decline in the amounts handed to the govern ment in payment for rent and Purchase o the landed estate of the Crown.
