WHO SHOULD HAVE S.P. BLOCKS Mitor, " The Land.-It is a good tiling tliat. those interested with the j>rogress of settlement has a paper through whose columns remedies may be suggested where very plain faults exist. The daily paper,, and particu larly the " Herald," can rarely see its way to devote an inch of space to a genuine complaint, unless it is made by one of our many useless Parlia mentarians, who have edged their way from obscurity, and will shortly fall back into their accustomed places. I happened to be, one of those who ap plied for a block of the Crowther Estate, and was not lucky enough to draw a winning marble, .so that my complaint is not personal. I did not draw second nor third, hut those who drew aSTos. 3 and 18 blocks have good cause for complaint. The for mer was allotted to a man who gave evidence to the effect ;that lie could secure up to £10,000 from his father, and the parent was there to support this statement.

AUSTRALIAN WOOL AND BRADFORD "BEARS." [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 March 1911
AUSTRALIAN WOOL AND BR AD FORD '. BEARS." "Mr. Elliott . J. Carter writes: " The end of the present series of the 1910-11 season's sales is quickly ap proaching, and the great question that . appeals to the grower is what has the future in store ? If the growers are . to sit down and quietly suffer tne tactics of Bradfoi'd ' bears' next year, then the outlook is gloomy indeed, and the question arises, Is wool worth groAVing 1 The many frivolous ex cuses put forward by brokers cannot obscure the fact that good, clean, ; well-grown wool is not fetching its value'in the Sydney markets, and . consequently manufacturers are reap ing a rich harvest at the expense of ???growers,' vide the quotations of tops in Bradforu after the collapse of the January sales in this State. It is littte wonder that Bradford men were happy 011 that occasion, and it ;is a , fact that prior to tlie issue of the farmers and settlers' organ, 'The Land/ 'the true situation does not seem/ to »liave . been . reveal...

A FIGHTING FUND. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 March 1911
A FIGHTING FUND. Editor. " The Land."--In your issue of the 3rd instant I notice a short paragraph in which -you mention Mr . J. (J.' Watson smiling a broad smile re his daily paper scheme, and the means raised to finance it-25,000 last year by the A.YV.U. and £IS,000 promised by other unions. No won der he smiles ! It also makes me smile-an old boy over 70, who was one of the pioneers in the early days of, the first movements in liiverina re the formation of unions among the (as we were then known) free selectors to protect our rights ov wroiigs as against the men with the cash behind them, and Watson's smile reminds ;me of the countless number of times I inwardly cursed the folly, meanness, impecuniosity call it what you like-of the majority of my brother workers who could not be brought to take a broad view of the financial problem to keep on put ting up a fighting fund so as to en able us to bring influence in' the shape of cash to bear in carrying our ideas to a successful conc...

Borrowing from Anotner Fund. We learn that at last meeting of the Inverell Council, after discussing tlie matter of £252 10s., wliicli had been taken from the general fund-'to pay preliminary expenses in connec tion with the electric lighting scheme, it transpired that the general fund was now' alnfost exhausted. A mo sum be borrowed from the lighting account, and handed to the general fund account." As doubt seemed to exist in -.the."minds of some of the" aldermen as to the legalit.y of such a proceeding, an amendment was car ried to refer the matter to the fin ance committee, in order to ascer tain whether it could be adjusted. The matter appears to be simple enough. Ord. No. 54, clause 2, sets out that the council may cause plans, reports, etc., to be prepared for sup ply of electricity, and may charge all such preliminary expenses to the general fund, and may afterwards transfer such expenses to the electric light fund, if a special or local fund be established therefor. It is a...

A Municipal Quarry. Some little time back Temora Council desired to purchase a block of land, four acres in extent for a quarry site, at a subdivision sale by auction, and authorised Aid.

At "the sale the land realised higher prices than had been Anticipated, and Aid; Nixon purchased the land, acting on his own respon sibility, at £24 .per acre. As this was contrary to a resolution passed at a meeting previously, a special meet ing was called to rescind the said motion.

Nixon's ac tion, and agreeing that the consent of the Governor be obtained to the purchase.
