Land Settlement and the Unemployed. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Express and Western District Advertiser — 17 February 1894
Xan% Settlement and the Unemployed. ir- [By Andrew Iloss, M.D.] ?To' THE Editok : Sir,— Another new fangl.ed idea has been added to the.,«already Jmge list of' nostrums for the alleviation or cure of the unemployed difficulty, or, - rather, as it is euphoniously termed, settling the unemployed on the soil. It. is lamentable to read the tnany plausible, pseudo, crude, quixotic theories that are from time to time put forth in' the interest of work and homos for the unemployed — theories, I fear, that are unwork able aud look better on paper than iliey would in practice. The last is one of the most mis leading that could possibly be submitted to the criticism of an hones', intelligent public. The chimerical question of 'Village Settlement' is bad enough with all the support it ruceives at the bands of theorists and amateur farmers; but to talk of settling 200 of the unemployed or farmers on a few select spots along our railway lines could only liavo emanated fi mn the brain of ari eutl...

Sale of Thorough-bred Stock at Larras Lake [Newspaper Article] — Molong Express and Western District Advertiser — 17 February 1894
Sale of Thorough-bred Stock at Larras Lake On Wednesday last the homestead of Mr. James Lee, of Larras Lake, wa9 the scene of unusual animation, occasioned by the large number of people there usseuioled from various parts of the Western district, ami amongst whom were many well-known : stock breeders. The attraction which drew together this gathering was the holding of the first of what is int uncled to be abnual sales of stock from the very choice ilocks and herds of Larras Like. This was an opportunity not to bo disregarded by stock owncr.H, as was evidenced by the large attendance and spirited bidding throughout. Considering the period of depression through', which we are passing Mr. Lee is to be congratulated on the success attending the sale, t'-.e holding of which at the homestead is undoubtedly a good idea, and will, if made a yearly affair, prove a considerable gain to stock-owners, who will be thus enabled to improve their herds by selections from the famed Larras Lake stoc...

Kni»i* to die out altogether, and so diminish. employ- ment, any danger of this happening is by no means imminent, and if it be desired that. Molong should ever become a sheep market of any consequence, especially .for sheep not intended for immediate slaughter, it will be worth while to remember that when . a man contemplates buying sheep to stock his pas tures, he does not,' as a general rule, wish to introduce burrs. at the same time.. Even a seller does not regard with satisfactioa the' prospect of Bending sheep to a market where they: will become covered with...

ROUNDABOUT NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Express and Western District Advertiser — 17 February 1894
ROUNDABOUT NOTES. The electors of Molong have hod their ears tickled lately with the clap-trap of a Labor agitator. Not since last election have any of these gentry visited the district until the last week or two, and the visit then was, doubtless, brought about by a desire to dis cover an opening for a bid for that £300 a. year. To hear some of these 'stump ora tors ' harangueing a crowd of electors one would think they were real geniuses m a political sense. But they're not. Oh, dear, no 1 Far from it... In nineteen cases out of 20, they are mere gas-bags, ,..who, by their facile powers of expression, top often succeed in hoodwinking and deceiving their audiences to.an extent sufficient to make them believe that they are talented, clever, and endowed with every essential attribute to qualify them to a neat in Parliament. . According to theai all the social and political evils we suffer from are to be remedied when their party gets into power, and above all things the fiscal questi...
