The scheme is admirably calculated to make the taxpayer's hair curl; Under this proposal Australia at the end of twenty-two years will . liave a-navy consisting of fifty-two vessels at a cost of £23,290,000. The expenditure for maintenance, building, and also providing for a sinking fund for depreciation, Admiral Henderson places at £4.000,000 per year.

Closing a Road. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 March 1911
Closing a Road. What appears to be a very high handed proceeding on the part of the Blue Mountains Shire Council is the closing of an important road, one end of which is in their shire area and the other in Blaxland area. At last meeting of the latter council a let- ter was read from the Blue Moun- tains Shire Council, stating that on account of the dangerous state of Berehofer Pass, they had blocked traffic from using that portion with- in their shire by fencing it off, and asking the Blaxland Shire to take similar action. It was resolved that the Blue Mountains Shire be written to, protesting against their action in blocking the traffic. Later in the evening, a report on the subject was read from the Engineer (Mr. B. A. Heffernan, as follows:- "On the 22nd instant a notification was received from the Blue Mountains Shire Coun- cil that Berghofer Pass was being closed to traffic, it being considered dangerous.

Sixteen meetings had been held during the year. It was due to the combined efforts of this Association, the pro gress association, and the P. and A. Association, that Millthorpe had at last obtained from the railways one of the most up-to-date weighbridges on the western line.

Interesting Land Case. Question of Conversion. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
Interesting Land Case. Question of Conversion. In dismissing by majority the ap peals by Edgar lloger Blomfield against the recommendations of the Invercll Land Board in respect of two applications to convert his special leases into original conditional pur chases, the Land Appeal Court dealt at some length with some interesting phases of the C.L. Amendment Act of 1908. The President (Mr. IT. A. G. Curry) in giving judgment, pointed out that the appellant held two special leases of 320 acres each, and applied under section II. of the 1908 Act, to convert each into o.c.p/s The leases adjoined a block of c.p. and e.l. land, totalling 1.9TG'acres; and it-was understood that Mr. Blomfield was not the original selector of these lands. The Land Board""recommended "tlie"i'efusal of the applications on the ground that Mr. Blomfield was not qualified un der section II. of the 1908 Act. The section said, "Notwithstanding anything contained in the principal Acts, or its its regulations, tiie r...

AN INTERESTING RAILWAY INNOVATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
AN INTERESTING RAILWAY INNOVATION. Queensland is experimenting in the direction of providing lighter running vehicles on railways where the traf fic is often not very heavy, and of adopting the motor-car principle for this purpose.' In this interesting ex periment' everybody may wish the Northern State good luck, and con g#«£Ci&lt;late1 her ion .such an exhibition of commonserise. Not half the service is done by the railways that they are capablc of, and Queensland is likely to furnish Australian railway managers with a good object-lesson. When motor-ears, running on macad amised roads, can race passenger trains, as the writer has seen them doing, and make a very good show ing, their possibilities on smooth and generally level railway lines ought to suggest themselves to .any up-to date railway manager. Queensland deserves all credit for being the first in this new field, and tenders have been called for 10 auto-car chassis. The motors are to be used on the ordinary-rails, a...
BULLOCKS FOR PLOUGHING. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
BULLOCKS FOR PLOUGHING. " We have had more nice rains."' writes Mr. J. Perry, "and the ground is in good order for ploughing, which is in full swing. A much larger area will be under crop this year in the north-west. Owing to the high price of draught horses, many farmers are using bul lock' teams for the ploughing. Pullman Bros., of Morr Ureek, are great believers in bullock teams for ploughing and harvesting, driving them four abreast. They tell me that with eight bullocks four abreast in the harvester they were able to keep up with six horses in a har vester. Alter losing eighteen of my draught horses, I have taken to the bullock team, and report very satis factory work, averaging about four acres a day with one man and ten bullocks using a four-furrow disc plough. Grass and herbage are abun dant-feet high nearly everywhere." A farmer at Wyalong has leased his 1000 acres for five years at £500 a year.
