By a Small Farmer labour will be Busy shortly claim ing that it represents the salvation of Tho Small Farmer and incidentally mentioning that unless it to Given the reins .of1 government farming vill curl up and die. First and Foremost labour cannot lift its Little Finger on behalf of the Small Farmer i because labour has not a soul to Call its own ? anyway it is a huge machine driven by the City Bosses again Whoso very existence de pends upon the Yot of of Tho mass who in turn non shrieking for Lusher Ancl higher Tariff Walls to protect be co Nilay industries. It sounds All right to hear orators and talkers and schemers whim they visit the country districts especially for election times say that All Small far mers should support labour because labour intends to break up Large estates arid All that. I say it sounds Nice and fiery and enthusiastic but it does tout any Ico scientific government Means sound nuance and Thuro cannot Over be sound finance whilst the Small Farmer is being compelled to work from Sunrise till rundown paying taxes for Tho. Better ment of and in lieu of City dwellers. This Point naturally treats very considerably with tile question of Protection for secondary industries. No Man is More enthusiastic than j am in demanding that the worker shall have a fair spin during his Short so Journ on this Earth but i cannot stand Bluff. Labour politics arc just about the dead end of everything. But when labour representatives have the teme Rity to claim they Are working for the Good of the Small Farmer i object. They care a about As much for the Good of the Small Farmer or any Farmer for that matter As a burglar care about the owner of a Safe he is cracking. Thiol is a truth and it is about time the said Small Farmers prove that their brains Are not in Accord with their holdings. Any political party depending upon votes of the mass for its existence never has and Novar will trouble Abii t the Small Farmer except to get his vote and then laugh at him. I am not say ing this from any prejudiced standpoint either. What i know is that any Man who says with one breath that he believes in High Tariff Walls to protect the worker Ancl in the next say3 his party is the salvation of the Farmer is either a fool or a Knave and per a Little of once upon a time did stand for the Good of the worker. I said once upon a time. To Day it stands for the Good of its Bosses and until a new spirit fights its Way in again the position will remain the same. I do not doubt at All that that the spirit is willing but i do know from experience that the flesh is weak when it comes to a show Down As be tween Tho interests of the Small far Mer and the interests of the unions. And the test can come Ever so quickly if any labour parliamentary Candi Date or politician is asked these questions a 1 do you Ibelice that primary production should come first 2 Are you prepared at All times and under All circumstances to stand the abolition of taxation upon Tho food clothing and machinery Neces sary for the Small Farmer s welfare no questions could Ibe fairer and they will very quickly draw the Bluff of men who talk glibly at election times but who know definitely and at once that the Only possible an j ser to both questions is a decisive no without doubt there would come a lot of talk about smashing up the Large holdings and giving the Small Farmer a big Chance but it is not much use smashing up holdings a Large or other Wise a to induce Farmers to farm the smaller bits unless the said Farmer is Given a a Hunch to produce tit a profit. And there is a lot More of it too there were wild scenes in the legislative Assembly Over the Gold pass grab proposal. The Assembly decided that it would not be dictated to by the legislative Council Ancl amid uproar restored the Gold pass amendment by an overwhelming majority. Or.

The Surveyor general of new South Walea or. A. Ii. A Husterman gave evidence before the new states com Mission in Sydney. Speaking of Tho District opened up by the Balranald Moama railway or. Chaste Man said that there was going to be a big development in settlement1 in that area. In answer to a question whether there had been a difficulty in finding buyers for land he replied that there were plenty of buyers at a Price but it was the Price that was the Check. Before federation. Victorian buyers certainly were seekers after land in new South. Wales owing to the difference in Price Between Eivor Ina and victorian land. Since that time this1 difference had Dis appeared to a certain extent but victorians had pushed ahead their Border railways which had tended to maintain prices of victorian land ahead of new South Wales. Victoria with its larger comparative population to new South Wales considering its size had doubt less evolved a better method of farm ing. Asked if the land policy of the ministry was being defeat cd by the a action of speculators or. Chesterman said that it was the first time that he had heard of it. He did not think that to to the Case As the Iund was bring ing such prices a would leave no mar Gin for speculators. Australia first.

The subjects Wiro skilfully prepared and lucidly presented and the general advantages of keeping Australia wheels turning wore emphasised in the titles. The efficiency of the australian ? worker and the attention to Industrial welfare displayed by Tho bigger manufacturers were Given justifiable prominence.
