34[Anderson, Thomas, Personal diary, 1885-1924, Battye Library, ACC 2808A (listing MN 720)]


1913 Mar. 14th. On we go! nearly a year since my last entry. The outlook in this State is not too good owing to the Banks & all business people pressing those who owe them money. The Banks and Merchants in their turn being afraid of the silly acts of a poor & incompetent so-called Labour Government. Our Premier (Scaddan) is away in England trying to borrow 5,000,000. The State debt is already 90 per head. Our population being 300,000. If he fails to get it which is likely then pressure all round will continue. If he does get it; then greater pressure later on. 300,000 people cannot pay interest on unlimited millions badly spent. Still on we go!
