Saturday july 18, 1936. Tasmania s recovery. A s a sign of returning Prosperity the tasmanian budget figures Are in conformity with the general australian experience. Under the old method there would have been a surplus for the year of �127,000, but As the accounts have been adjusted to express truth in finance there is a deficit of �129,000. It is just As Well that the accounts have been so expressed As not to show that there is a surplus when such is not the Case seeing that we have to make our Case Good before the Federal authorities and once the publication of a surplus was broadcast there would not be the sympathy for Tasmania that we Are looking for. Opinions May differ As to the manner of budget presentation but it should obviously be desirable to get at the facts even though they be not the most consoling to the mind. We have in mind the recent decision of the Queensland government to fund a Large portion of the railway losses so that the system there gives the illusion that the lines Are paying their Way. But since the debt which was removed from the. Departmental balance Sheet still figures somewhere the adjustment is misleading and prevents a comparison with the results of railway management in other states. The Only Way to remove railway shortages with just regard to the financial facts would be to wipe off the losses out of Revenue. That of course cannot be done. Whether we Are to regard the state balance Sheet As showing a surplus or a deficit the figures at All events prove that there is a considerable measure of recovery in evidence. Tasmania s Posi Tion shows marked improvement Over the year. But it is just As Well to face the full facts and affirm with the director of the International labor office that the True Index of Prosperity to Day is not to be found in government balance sheets but in the Mea sure of unemployment. If this be the Yard stick applied then Tasmania with the other states is far from being out of the Wood. But if we look at the matter from this Angle there is still cause for satisfaction since the level of work Tessness in this state is much below that of South Wales and compares Well with the australian average. The treasurer is at pains to show that the Public debt has been reduced very substantially compared with the years prior to the de pression. We have had the advantage of interest reductions to assist us both in Australia and London which have doubtless tended towards the general betterment and enabling much More Money to be spent in giving work while allowing of reductions in Taxa Tion especially in the Federal sphere. The tasmanian govern ment has avoided giving Relief to taxpayers on the ground that the unemployed have to be thought of. Still the debt charges which include sinking fund and Exchange on the Oversea commitments total a very formidable sum exceeding �1,100,000 annually. It. Is an enormous amount for a Small country with a handful of breadwinners to pay. Exchange accounts for-�112,000, yet we would not have it removed for it Means that a Bonus to that extent is Given to the Export industries. Which suggests that there is some legerdemain about Money. Save it and you lose spend it and it comes Back again after Many Days like the bread cast upon the Waters of bib Lical lore. It is to be noted that while the Revenue has reached a record in the history of Tasmania the expenditure has likewise advanced beyond the �3,000,000 Mark. It would appear that an Effort to pile up a heavy deficit has been frustrated by the very buoyancy of the returns and doubtless that buoyancy has been due in a measure to the spending. Under almost every heading there has been increased expenditure. Mining is about the Only exception and it might be suggested that major Davies owes an apology to his colleagues for proving too economical. Fall from horse injuries prove fatal. Refused medical assistance. Hobart Friday. A verdict of accidental death was returned by the Coroner or g. C. Gilmore it Hobart to Day when an inquiry into Tho death of John Burns who died on july 0 at a private Hospital in Hobart was hold. Evidence was Given to Tho effect that deceased was working at Par Attah and was thrown from his horse and drugged for a considerable Disturco with his foot caught in Tho Stirrup. He refused medical assistance for some time but eventually was persuaded to go to Hobart. To died is Tho result of a Frac tured Skull pneumonia and Shock. Executive Council.

Victorian Grey soils sold at �0/15/ to �7/5/, and Ballarat Rcd soil snowflakes at .�7/15/. 1 state budget held up. Grants commission s report awaited. Hobart programme of Tho government with reference to parliamentary proceedings this year cannot to definitely determined until the Premier or. A. G. Ogilvie has been acquainted with Tho extent of Tho Commonwealth giant for the current financial year. Tho compilation of Tho budget is " held up until the amount allocated to Tasmania is announced. The statement Mado at Canberra yesterday that Tho third annual report of Tho Grants commission would to ready within Tho next month or two therefore caused perturbation in trea sury circles. If Tho Federal govern ment cannot consider the recommendations of the commission for two months Tho drawing up of Stato accounts will to seriously hindered. Tho Premier said to Day that in his opinion Somo error had been made for there should to nothing to prevent an announcement within a week or so however to Clear Tho matter up he had forwarded Tho following Telegram to Tho Primo Millilitre or. J. A. Lyons the press says that the Grants commission s report will to ready within the next month or two. As Tho preparation of our budget ? is held in a Betanco pending decisions on this year s Grant would appreciate any information available regarding Rel Caso of commission s churches protest. Proposed hotel at Hobart.

Australia a liquor License for approximately every 1,000 persons while Tasmania has a liquor License for every 773 persons. Ave there fore strongly protest against and in crease in Tho number of liquor James Appeal Case from Page. Federal marketing legislation upset. Alteration of Constitution. Canberra Friday. The whole Structure of Commonwealth marketing legislation in relation to dried fruits Dairy produce and wheat depended on the James Appeal Case and the verdict May mean that a referendum will be necessary for an alteration in the Commonwealth Constitution to give the fed eral parliament Power to control marketing which the privy Council has just declared it does not possess. If the James Appeal has completely upset the dried fruits act then it Means All similar legislation also is unenforceable As any party who pleases May take similar proceedings to those taken by James. The challenging of the Dairy produce act would throw into Complete chaos Australia s third largest exporting Industry. Also the Home consumption Price scheme for wheat May not come into operation for next season As was proposed. Por Tho first Nizo months of Tho inst financial year ended March 31, dried fruits exported were currants �181,144, raisins �577,425, and other fruits �772,030. During Tho same period butter exports were �7,650,216, cheese �300,130, and milk and Cream �598,430. ? wheat exports were �10,917,616, and flour �3,373,134. Consequently the judgment May affect Between �20,000,000 and �30,000,000 exports for a full year. Authorities stated to night that until full details of Tho judgment Wero known it was impossible to say to what extent Tho existing legislation would to affected. An essential feature of Tho dried fruits act was Tho Power Given to Tho comm wealth to control the inter Stato Trade in this commodity. Tho object was to Force Tho surplus in dried fruits on to Tho Export Market and so compel All producers to share in Tho Export quota. If it has been decided that Tho Commonwealth is bound by Section 92, and that a Wido View has been taken and that into Santo Trade is to be regarded As free from every restriction it Ivas stated to night then a Largo legislative Field has Boen lost to the Commonwealth and states and Tho mat Ter will have to receive very serious consideration by the Tho reference to Tho matter being remitted for trial by the High court does not affect Tho principle of Tho judgment but relates Only it is thought to assessment of damages on a Point of Law which the Commonwealth took against James. It is considered Tho judgment is unlikely to Havo any effect on legislation affecting such commodities As meat and wino is Thero is no inter state control of them by Tho Commonwealth transport legislation also is unlikely to to affected. It was decided by a High court majority decision in a Caso affecting Tho . Transport co ordination act and Tho South austra Lian transport act that Section 92 did not apply and leave to Appeal to the privy Council was refused. Tho privy Council judgment invests the premiers conference in Adelaide on August 26 with added importance As it is considered it May. Now to Neces sary for Tho Commonwealth to approach Tho states to ask them to agree to a constitutional amendment to invest the Commonwealth parliament with Power which Tho privy Council says it does not possess. Cabinet consideration on tuesday. Melbourne fed eral Cabinet will review its marketing legislation in Melbourne on tuesday and will discuss Tho advisability of holding an Early referendum aimed at extending Commonwealth Constitution Al Powers. Tho position will also to examined at Tho premiers conference in Ade Laide next my the but in View of Tho intervention of states on opposite sides during the hearing of Tho privy coun cil Caso agreement Between premiers on Tho most suitable procedure for the future is unlikely. Tho Primo minister or. Lyons declined to night to comment on Tho decision. In View of the fact that All Commonwealth schemes for the Premier pleased. Hobart Friday. The result of the Appeal was very pleasing and was a justification of the government s action in briefing counsel to appear for Tasmania the Premier or. A. G. Ogilvie said to night. Tho importance of the decision could not be Over rated. The relationship Between the states and tile Commonwealth was to be discussed at the forthcoming pre. Mier s conference and the important decision of the privy Council should be reviewed care. Fully and completely particularly in relation to fruit and the Trada Between the states. No doubt the Commonwealth government would to a Little More amen Able to reason. Marketing of primary produce have collapsed however the significance of Tho decision is appreciated by All ministers and Tho judgment will be treated a an urgent matter on tuesday. Reports from Commonwealth Legal authorities will to available for Tho direction of ministers w. A Cabinet considers the referendum proposal i Confidence that Tho difficulty caused by Tho privy Council s judgment would to solved was expressed to night by the acting Federal attorney general j senator Brennan. Personally i no not surprised he said. Tho judgment agrees with Many Early decisions of Tho High court defining Section 02 of Tho Constitution As binding the Commonwealth As Woll As Tho states. It was Tho m i Arthur judgment in 1020 that started us thinking along different lines and led to Tho View generally entertained that the Section did not bind Tho government in respect of its marketing 6chcmos. Now that the privy Council has hold otherwise Tho government will Havo to consider Tho position As soon is possible said senator Brennan. It May to necessary to ask Tho peo ple to Amend Tho Constitution to give the Commonwealth those Powers which Tho High court has regarded it As hav. Ing in its Moro recent judgments. Tho question of a referendum however is one for the prime minister. I am confident that some moans will to de Vised to Solo Tho Tho victorian Crown solicitor or. P. G. Menzies said to night that the upset of Tho decision of Tho High court in relation to marketing and compulsory pools and possibly transport int i tors which might to involved was ser ious. Tho position would Havo to to i reviewed. Transport and marketing had been on a different basis to said but this decision might throw them to Gether. To. Had not seen the text of the privy Council s judgment but there could to no doubt that it would have a far reaching effect. An Amend ment of Tho Fod Orul Constitution and � a referendum to give effect to it would be necessary. A leading Legal authority estimated to night that Tho costs to Tho common wealth and the intervening states in Tho cases before the privy Council and the High court would to approximately �10,000. Tho Pic Mier of Victoria or. Dun Stan to night expressed regret at Tho privy Council s decision and said an investigation would Havo to to Mado to Seo if Tho position could to met by some other Means. Tho decision is a blow to organised marketing snid or. Dunstan. James damages at least �25,000. London . James told a representative of Tho australian associated press after Trio head ing that Tho judgment had relieved him and the ten year ficht had ended. He had never doubted Tho outcome because to ised that Tho priv Council did not mix politics with Justice. I do not know what the fight will Cost my he said. Tho final Stace will be my application to Tho High court for damages which will probably boat least �25,000. After which i will Olavo for Australia on Tho Ormonde sailing on aukrust 35. I no remain intr in London for Tho present to Settle up financial matters. My business is almost wrecked by the government s action. It continued seizing goods Evon Whilo i was in England appealing to the privy Council. It is a Victory for the rights of Tho individual citizen in Tho smaller states and i a establish is the original intention of Tho Constitution and restores rights which Tho common wealth and Santo parliaments have been increasingly Fil Ching. Australia has been Drifting to an uneconomic position regarding Tho introduction of overseas marketing of primary products and Tho marketing boards Havo been repressive and harm Ful. Tho judgment Means that they Aro illegal and All actions Aro Ultra Vires. It is difficult to Fay what their future is. I believe there is a constitutional method of retaining Tho boards which Aro doing useful work. Tho pol icy of increasing Homo consumption prices will Engblo Australia to compete of Vorsas. It is obvious that Tho uneconomic position is steadily pushing Australia farther from Tho world s markets. Australia will be Able to re treat Tho old policy and develop economically and reduce Tho costs of production consequently it will to Able to accept competitive prices which will still to profitable for primary producers and manufacturers. Or. James added that marketing boards Wero largely duplicating their work. Tho agents did a certain amount of Good but it was outweighed by Tho harm done by Tho Board. Many Custo mers in England Wero opposed to it when other markets were open to them. They refused to accept dictation from Tho Commonwealth which irritated customers who. After nil. Wero the final or biters of Tho nation s producers. I Havo contended nil along that the Bounty quota is a primitive method of solving problems of production and marketing and since 11124 have pleaded for Moro scientific and modern approach to it. 1 Cousin Der there should Boun excise duty payable on All pro ducts with a rebate for exports Over sea s. The government has amnio Powers under Puro food acts to attend to Quality and packing without stepping outside the Constitution and unfairly discriminating against individual producers. Tho government s business is to govern and not Trade which is Best left to private or James Doe. Not intend to Cense fighting to re establish Sano marketing production methods. He May enter fed eral politics probably in . Inter ests. He was a country party member but is afraid that party is working on the wrong lines and not interested in the Ordinary routine of politics. His policy will to concerned with primary production and marketing. To has Learned a lot to says which to believes will to of Valuo to Australia. An official of Tho australian dried fruits Board described Tho effects of Tho judgment is obscure especially in View of Tho Rof Crenco Back to Tho High court. So far As to Are concerned it does not seem to affect us he said though i will not venture to express a positive opinion. To Aro not inter ested in an inter state Trendo Issue. To consider applications from growers for Export licenses and attend to overseas marketing. Our position was unsuccessfully challenged in Tho courts last year and to do not expect Tho judg ment to alter Tho situation. An official of Tho canned fruits Board stated that what followed was a matter for Australia. To in London accept Tho decision and question instructions. If to were told to put up Tho shutters to would to bound to cheerfully obey but to do not expect matters to come to that. The various boards hero Aro doing valuable work and doubtless Australia will find a was out. If Tho judgment should necessitate Legal implications the Cass is not a matter for votes for Kentish municipality. Hobart Friday. Tho chief Secretary or. T.
