LAND SETTLEMENT ? ? I MIGRANT8 AND AUSTRALIANS. PREMIER EXPLAINS. It would appear, from reports of speeches delivered in the country re cently by members of the Opposition,' said the Premier (Sir George Fuller) 011 Friday, 'tlmt an attempt is being made to discredit the ' Government's migration settlement scheme by arous ing personal prejudices. This is sought to rbe justified by the assertion that provision is made for preferential treat ment of migrants over Australian land seekers.' THE CHOICE. The Premier went on to say that, whatever advantages to migrants there might be said to be under the scheme, that were not available to local people, the question of preference to one set of prospective settlers as against an arisen.

Where is the Northern Line? [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 1 April 1924
Where is the Northern Line? When we look at the map of our State in connection, with the branches of the Country Women's Association, the question immediately arises: Where is the great Northern line? And why is it so slow in coming in behind a movement that is receiving the most widespread and unanimous support from the rest of the State? Glen Innes has thrown itself whole heartedly into the work of assisting the women in the West, and last year donated no less than towards t)ie upkeep of a. bush-nursing centre at Knnconia, while Gunning, in the far South, is_ assisting in the opening of a like station at Mt. Hope. Will not some of our prosperous towns along the line lend a little aid also? We sadly want more Bush Nurses in the cotlntry, where young mothers and little families aro far from doctors and entirely cut off from hospital care. Then we need another Seaside Home ; and as a beau tif nl site 1ms boon set aside for us at Port Maequarie, and another presented to us at Coft's H...

BE INDEPENDENT [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 1 April 1924
BE INDEPENDENT \ (By Rudyard Kipling.) - ? '? ? ? (The following is Mr. Kipling's Rec torial Address at St. Andrew's Univer sity, delivered iast October): — The sole revenge that Maturity can take upon Youth for the sin of being ? ,c- tn nvpnrli nt it. When 1 'was young, 1 sat and _ suffered under' that 'dispensation. Now that 1 am older I purpose, if you, my constitu ents, will permit me. to hand on the Sacred Torch of Boredom. Independence means, ''Let every herring hung by its own head. It signifies the blessed state of hanging on to us few persons aud things as possible, and it leads up to the singu lar privilege of a man owning himself. The desire for independence has been, up to the present, an ineradicable human instinct, ante-dating even the social instinct. When I wished to claim my independ ence and to express myself according t.- the latest lights of my age (for there were lights even then), it was dis heartening to be told that 1 could not expect to be clothed, fed, taug...
