The Forbes Times. SATURDAY, MARCH 2nd, l912. THE QUEENSLAND STRIKE. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 2 March 1912

The Forbes Times SATURDAY, MARCH 2nd, li>12. THE QUEENSLAND STRIKE. The outstanding point of I lit judgment of Mr. Justice Higgins, o£ the Federal Arbitration Court in the Queensland tramway strike refer ence, that there can be no legal prohibition against the wearing 01 badges by members of unions, is to emphasise once more the futility and wanton wastefulness of the weapon: of the strike as a means to combat employers. His Honor, while being qui|te decided in his support of the unions' protest against the tramway companies in terdict o£ the badge, explained his attitude in these striking terms: "Perhaps I should say here that 1 have nothing to do with the con duct of other unions in striking work in sympathy with the Bris bane tram men. What is called a general strike does not extend be yond one State, and however fatu ous and futile the device of making . a quarrel with innocent employers because tramway men have a quar rel with their employers, or the device of taking the pub...

The Markets. HORSE SALE AT ORANGE. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 2 March 1912

The Markets. HORSE SALE AT ORANGE. At their new horse bazaar on Tuesday Messrs. J. S. Leeds and Co. conducted the most successful sale of draught horses yet held in Orange, when they yarded prob ably the finest lot of draught mares the property of one owner in the West. They were all beautiful animals—big, bony, muscular beasts, as fat as pigs—specially selected by Major Claude Smith. This in itself was sufficient recommendation. The bidding for them was spirited, one bay mare and foal topping the market at £70. This beautiful mare was secured by Mr. M. F. Dalton, who also purchased another superior looking mare for £62. As will be seen by the sales below, Major Smith's mares were indeed a fine lot, and the prices realised were good. Mr. Bowman's horses reached £43 for a draught mare, and £40 for a well-bred filly, and Mr. T. Martin secured £40 for a filly. Right throughout the sale was conducted by a large staff of men. The salesmen were Messrs. E. T. McNeilly and G. Leeds, The fol...

43 WHEAT GROWERS TO NOTE. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 2 March 1912

No. 43. \vh!:at growers to note. The experiments conducted by the Department liave thrown some addi tional light: regarding die economic pro duction of wheat. The object of these experiments was to obtain answers to certain questions forming the subject of dispute among practical men. Purely scientific research was unable to fully elucidate the points involved; while the experiments in other countries would hardly meet the case'owing to ltrohal.de differences in soil and climate. When the'Cowra Experiment Farm was opened in 1900, arrangements were made for experimenting in wheat-grow ing over an indefinite number of years. By thus extending the operations, it was considered that anything like con clusive results could only be reached. The experiments were extended to other farms in different sections of the wheat belt to ascertain the varying be haviour of the several varieties of wheat in the respective districts. Con clusions cannot, of course, be yet con sidered as final, as it i...

It is \ cheap work converting starving men with a Bible in one hand and a slice of bread and butter in the other. I will undertake to convert West Ham to Mahommedanism on j ihe same terms.'
