State and Federal Parlia ments will be requested to intensify action taken to combat the noxious Weed ser rated tussock which has become prevalent in the Central and Southern tablelands area. This was decided at a Confer ence held at Goulburn on Fri Day and attended by representatives of 17 Shires to discuss ways and Means of combating serrated tussock. The conference was of the opinion that government action in combating the Weed was at present not sufficient to Check its spread. Mul Waree Shire Council representative or. Stan Hunt told the conference he was amazed to hear that the . And . Had not carried out closer investigations into the matter than it had. He said it appeared that there was no concerted policy for combating and eradicating the Weed on a state wide basis. Research need he stressed it was imperative that 1 the Weed should be declared noxious throughout the state. 2 research into ways and Means of combating the Weed on a Large scale should be stepped up considerably. If the menace is entrenched in such a proportion As we Are Given to understand it is then we must have immediate action he commented. Or. Hunt moved that appropriate Steps be taken to have the . And . Carry out investigation into the control and eradication of the Weed. Or. Allan Fraser . Pointed out that it was desirable to have coordinated action be tween the state and the Federal governments on the problem of controlling Weed. He said it would be illogical for the state noxious weeds authorities to set up different investigations into the problem to the authority already existing for the purpose. It would be better to approach the weeds coordinating com Mittee to have investigations in to the problem from that source increased. Approach to minister state weeds officer or. K. R. Green suggested that the conference would do better to refer the matter to ministers controlling the noxious weeds problem in both the state and Federal governments instead of approaching a specific govern ment department. On this advice or. Macfar Lane of the by drag Orang Shire Council moved an amendment to or. Hunt s motion that an approach be made to the minis ters controlling the noxious Weed problem in both the state and Federal parliaments to have investigations into the eradication of serrated tussock intensified. This amendment was carried and or. Hunt s motion lost. Or. Johnson of the Good Rad Igbee Shire Council pointed out that individual landholders concerned with. The serrated tussock prob Lem should not wait for departmental action to be taken in the matter. They should do everything possible on their own behalf to eradicate the Weed. State Weed officer or. Green supported this View. We can t expect miracles to happen and the easiest Way to combat the Weed at present is for the individual landholders to Knock the Weed out wherever it occurs with a Maddock he commented. Council query on Flats Goulburn City Council will ask for an interpretation of the local government act in re Spect of requirements governing the building of Semi detached cottages and Flats. The question of interpretation arose last thursday when coun cil was considering a communication from the department which said Section 314 12 c of the local government act precludes the Council approving an application which does not conform to one of the standards prescribed in schedule 7 of the act Ard further the Council is bound to apply these standards in the Case referred the communication had been sent in reply to the Council s inquiry regarding the converting of premises at 111 Bradley Street into a residential Flat building. Ald. P. R. D. Hollis said it seemed an anomaly that people in Sydney could build duplex Flats and Semi detached cot tages on a single Block whereas in the Case in question in which there was much More land and a comparatively Large building the application was refused. Council agreed that the mat Ter should be investigated and decided to place the question on the Agenda paper for the next local government.

Building certificate refused Goulburn City Council last week defined to Issue a certificate to c. M. And d. A1. Rampton Home builders in Elizabeth Street because the eaves of a Home they had built were too near to the Boundary line. Council was told by the chief health and building. Inspector or. A. H. Currell that while the builder had been advised to have a Survey made while the building was in Progress be cause the location of the Boun Dary line was doubtful. In spite of the advice said or. Currell the building does not comply with the require ments of the ordinance. This ordinance stipulates that the distance from the Edge of the Rainwater Gutter to. The Boundary must be two feet three inches whereas on the build ing in question the distance is two feet two inches. I cannot recommend the is sue of the desired certificate said or. Currell. In agreeing with or. Currell s action aldermen said that there was Little Council could do about the matter. The Ordi Fiance was definite on. The require Nimen to and Council was bound by it. Aid. P. R. H. Hollis said that the Only Way to overcome a repetition of such circus instances was for Council to insist upon a Survey wherever the Boundary of lot was in doubt. He moved that wherever there is a doubt concerning the Boun Dary of any lot on which a building is to be erected the building inspector shall have Power to recommend the defer ment of. The building application until such time As the land in question has been Aid. Mullen i agree with that. If people then persist in building in face of such a Deci Sion then the responsibility will be Orn their own shoulders. The motion was carried. New Goulburn dwellings Goulburn City Council last week approved plans for buildings estimated to West �6650. Applications approved were a. R. Cody 165 Nicho son Street. Fibre Cement dwelling five rooms bathroom laundry and garage estimated value. £2600. E. Dunlevie Bellevue Street Weatherboard dwelling six to cons bathroom and laundry. Esti mated value �2500. H. A. Weeks Furner Street Timber and Fibre dwelling four rooms bathroom and laundry. Estimated value �1550. Council also approved of a number of applications for additions and alterations to existing buildings. Current among men like Coin is the tinsel Clink of compliment. Editorial the spotlight turns on tariffs what australian manufacturers Wanti s to Hae Tariff barriers raised still higher against overseas Competition so As to inflict their. High costs on the Economy with consequent higher costs of production government and the Secretary of the joint co Minitte for Tariff revision. Or. B. B. Evans certainly hit the Nail on the head when he made this statement last week in condemning representatives of. A number of leading manufacturers for threatening the government with reprisals unless it raised certain tariffs. Or. Evans further pointed out that the manufacturers did not seek Tariff Protection merely to enable them to compete on the australian Market but rather to bolster up tariffs to such an extent that Competition from overseas would be virtually impossible. The threat of reprisals against the government by the manufacturers was also strongly criticised by other groups including the. Graziers association of . And the retail traders association of . The Secretary of. The latter organisation very rightly described the threat As an attempt to bludgeon the government into giving a Blank Cheque of Protection without first establishing that the industries were efficient essential and were making a genuine Effort to compete with overseas such Plain speaking is Welcome indeed. It throws the Long tolerated Ham stringing protectionist policy right into the limelight where All its defects and ineptness can be seen. Moreover it comes at a time. When the world s attention is beginning to focus on the functions of . And the intimation by America that she is prepared to help British countries in their efforts to free themselves from Trade and currency restrictions. A sincere attempt at this stage by the West in nations to lower obstructive Tariff Walls and create a Lively interchange of goods would go a Long Way towards correcting inflation and putting the Pound Back in its proper pers?ect.?e. The fetish of nurturing manufacturers by blocking Competition from other countries has gone on far too Long and has proved. Its Inefficacy by sending prices and wages skyrocketing beyond the Bounds of reason. Because the whole premises on which Protection is based is false it has caused costs of production to jump in an alarming fashion. It has meant that the Public has been playing through the neck for goods which under a free Trade policy they would have been Able to Purchase at their real value on a competitive Market. The Day is fast approaching however when australian manufacturers will no longer be ble to lean on protective tariffs at the expense of the consumer. They will simply be a compelled to fall in line with the common sense trend towards unhampered Trade and either put their goods on the open Market at competitive prices or go under. If someone Are unable to run their enterprises efficiently and economically they won t be Able to expect the Public to pay for it. Australia has a Clear duty ahead and it is twofold it Mutt liberate the soit for greater primary production and it must be prepared to become part of a world Community by buy ing and Selling on an unrestricted Market. By constantly working towards that end it will be also serving Well the cause of world peace and Prosperity.

The unusual phraseology of advertisers is exemplified by the undertaker who makes the statement that his is the cheap est funeral establishment in Goulburn and exhorts the read ers not to be deceived by others claims to the contrary.

Pills and patients other advertisements indicate that the Early inhabitants of the Colony of new South Wales far from being healthy Hardy men required an amazing assortment of pills poultices powders and patients to retain life. Patent medicines were advertised to cure any malady from cholera to bad appetite.
