MOTIVE POWER ON THE FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 2 February 1912

MOTIVE POWER ON THE FARM. Machinery is the order of the day; there is no sense in doing by hand that which can he done better and quicker by the a'd of machinery. Tlie "Alfa-Laval" Separator has long reigned supreme in the dairy, just as the L-K-G Milking Machine is large ly superseding the old fashioned slow and insanitary method of milking by hand. As to whether it is better for the farmer to purchase an oil engine, or_ a steam engine and boiler, local conditions, and the farmer's own pre ference are the guiding factors where wood and water are plentiful. Steam, of course, has many advantages, as steam is very handy for scalding and washing purposes, heating feed for cows, pigs, and so on. Where wood and water are scarce, an oil engine has many advantages, as it can be started quickly, and since the "Stan dard" Oil Engines have been on the market oil engines have been given a big lift forward. The L-K-G Milking Machines can be worked either direct from a steam boiler, on the fame ...

SPEAKER V. "HANSARD." ROYAL COMMISSION'S REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 2 February 1912

SPEAKER 1. "HANSARD." ROYAI COMMISSION'S REPORT. The report of Judge Backhouse, who sat as a Royal Commission to inquire into the circumstances lead ing up to the suspension of Mr Charles Robinson, chief of the "Han sard" staff, by Mr Speaker Willis, states:—(1) That the Speaker had power to suspend Mr Robinson, and had good grounds for exercising that power. (2) That one, at least, of the letters written by Mr Robinson contained expressions that should not have been used, (3) There had been insubordination in other matters. Judge Backhouse added:—"Whilst I find against Mr Robinson, I wish to make it perfectly clear that 1 liavo not one word to say against liis abil ity. He has discharged his duties faithfully and well for many years, but he had an idea that by the word ing of the Speaker's minutes, not only his ability but his honesty was called into question. The fact that he was laboring under this impression, and what was admitted to be a very hard week for everyone connected wi...

CRUELTY TO CATTLE. TRAVELLING IN HOT WEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 2 February 1912

CRUELTY TO CATTLE. TRAVELLING IN HOT WEATHER. Judge Docker had something to say at the Parramatta Quarter Ses sions last week, with reference to the way cattle are often carried long dis tances in hot weather. His Honor said: "It is becoming a public scandal. It ought to be with in the ingenuity of man to either un load the cattle half way along their journey, or supply them with water. The Railway Commissioners disclaim the responsibility for their cruelty, but they ought to refuse to carry cattle under circumstances which are opposed to the principles of common humanity." The case that his Honor was hear ing had reference to the travelling of cattle from Jerilderie to Campbell town, a distance of 450 miles, which took from Friday till Sunday, with out the cattle having had food or water. When they arrived at Camp belltown four of the beasts were found to be dead. His Honor said it looked like cruelty to animals. A solicitor in the case stated that a law existed in England which pr...

WHEAT TRANSPORT. FORBES OPERATIONS FOR THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 2 February 1912

WHEAT TRANSPORT. FORBES OPERATIONS FOR THE MONTH. During the month of January, 6675 bags of wheat have been forwarded by rail from the Forbes railway sta tion, and there are 2000 bags in the yard. It must be understood, how ever, that it is not necessarily be cause of a shortage of trucks that this wheat has accumulated, for it is a common practice for farmers to stack wheat at the station, and when a favorable market arises, to put it forwai'd as quickly as possible, so that it is quite conceivable that where there are not regular consign ments, a congestion must arise, when many are trying to seize the same moment to forward the grain. There is, therefore, at times a shortage of trucks at Forbes, but not such as calls for loud complaint, nor is the shortage continuous. The local mills, moreover, absorb such an amount of wheat that any congestion at the railway station is considerably modified. At Mr Clark's "Snow Cloud" flour mill, 22,000 bags have been absorbed dur ing the month,...

THE BRISBANE STRilCE. SERIOUS POSITION. Business Paralysed. Brisbane, Wednesday. In accordance with the decision ar rived at by the .unions, a general strike, in support of the tramway em ployees, began this morning. Busi ness in all directions is paralysed. Those establishments not closed are doing practically no trade. The city is seething with excite ment. No trams have run to-day. The railway employees have thrown in their lot with the strikers, and this means a great extension of the trouble. The Minister and Commissioner for Railways met this morning, , and de cided to reduce the passenger service, to fit the depleted staff So far, the engine-drivers, guards, and firemen remain loyal, but as a result of the union of other employees, there is a complete cessation of goods traffic. The effect of this will seriously in convenience the whole State, and it is possible that the whole service, al ready thoroughly disorganised, may be suspended altogether. Many of the hotels have clos...
