Central Chamber of Agriculture n and the Fiscal Problem. At a council meeting of the Central and Associated Chambers of Agriculture held on Wednesday at the Society of Arts, Adelphi, the Earl of Warwick presided. A motion was moved at the last meeting by Mr Rider Haggard :â That this council considers that the time has come for the re-consideration aud reform of our present fiscal system, and it cordially welcomes the propopals submitted by Mr Chamberlain as being necessary and desirable for such reform. An amendment was moved by Mr C. Middleton (Cleveland), that the subject of fiscal reform should be referred for inquiry to a thoroughly representative Royal Commission. Dairy farmers and stock-breeders would, in his opinion, be worse off than they were at present under the conditions of Mr Chamberlain's proposals. This was seconded. Mr Maxted (Canterbury), as a practical farmer, said the remedy for agricultural depression was to be found in Mr Chamberlain's scheme. (Loud cheers.) Their only malvation was to follow the ex-Colonial Secretary. (Cheers.) Mr Kidner (of Taunton) said farmers all over the country had made up their minds for Mr Chamberlain. Mr Terrell, K.C. (Gloucester), held that if they endorsed Mir Chamberlain's scheme farmers would benefit considerably, mainly through the home markets being improved. Mr Chaplin, M.P., said the nation at present was holding the most exhaustive inquiry on the fiscal question that had ever been held on any subject. The amendment was lost by a large majority, only four voting for it. The resolution was carried with only seven dissentients.
