BRANCH REPORTS. PILLIGA. An Initial Sports Meeting. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 2 May 1906

BRANCH REPORTS. PILLIOA. An Initial Sports Meeting. ' The athletic sports meeting inaugurated by this branch came off on Mister Mon day, and being the lirst venture of the kind, may bo considered a success, both financially and otherwise. The events were not as keenly contest ed as anticipated, maybe on account of lack of athletes, or that the prize money was not larec enough. However, now that our branch is on a firm footing, let us hope that this will be the commencement of an annual outing for our district. All the committee worked with a will to carry out the programme, and everything went off without a hi'ch. The social at night attracted a good crowd, the hall being taxed to its utmost, upwards of fifty couples being present. Dancing was kept up until about 2 o'clock, when all returned well satisfied with their night's enjoyment. Amongst the visitors were noticed some from Burren, Bulyeroi, , and Come By Chance.

THE CUDGELL CREEK CUTTING. A BIG IRRIGATION OBJECT LESSON. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 2 May 1906

THE CUDCELL CREEK CUTTING. A BIG IRRIGATION OBJECT LESSON. A start in irrigation was made on the Murrumbidgce on Wednesday last, when the Minister for Works 'turned the tap' of the Cudgel Creek cutting, near Nar randera. The undertaking was initiated by Sir Samuel McCaughey, who made an offer to the Government that if (pending the construction of the main Barren Jack scheme) they would construct a cutting Oak Creek into the Bundidgerry Creek, and thence to the Cudgel Creek, along the line of the proposed main channel, he would pay absolutely for all works in connection therewith, which could not be used for the main scheme, and would pay interest at 4 per cent, per annum on the cost of such works, as could be used for the main scheme, in return for which he asked for the use of the water reaching' Cudgel Creek, thereby till the main canal was constructed. The cutting conveys water a distance of 12 miles from the Murrumbidgee to North Yanco station, and will eventually form part of t...

Berry's, when there wore present Mr. J. lioniion (in the chair), and a good attend ance of members, and several visitors, who are becoming interested in the doings of our association. The report on the mineral lease by Mr. F. Brennan was read, and received great comment. The secretary was instructed to convey Mr. Brennan a vote of thanks for the straight-out and candid report which he submitted. It was all that could DB UCHirUU. The canvassing for signatures on peti tions re mineral leases wero not completed, and the petitions wore allowed to stand over till next meeting. Mr. G.

If similar energy wore exorcised by more of tho members of our associations their pow er would be felt even in the back-blocks of tho State. As a result of a letter re...

NEVERTIRE. Annual Meeting. — Railway Freights.— A Ball. The annual meeting was held on 18th instant, the president, Mr. Gilbert Mur phy, in the chair, and a goodly number of members being present. The statement of accounts showed a credit balance for the year of £7 6s 3d. The president, in the absence of an an nual report, gave a resume of tho year's transactions. He regretted that they could not point to any great improvements ef fected, such as roads, bridges, &c. He re ferred to the future operations of the Shires' Act as affecting country districts, and stringently criticised the proposed pro gressive land tax — one of the monstrous socialistic planks of the Labour Party. If for no other reason they should keep to gether to render what opposition lay in their power to these socialistic proposals. He reviewed what had been done in the matter of rabbit destruction, and stated that efforts in this direction had been en tirely successful. After pointing to seve ral local imp...

FREE SELECTION BEFORE SURVEY.—A REPLY TO CRITICS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 2 May 1906

FREE SELECTION BEFORE SURVEY.— A REPLY TO CRITICS. By 'Ajax.' Mr. Barton, in your issue of 11/4/06, seems to think that he has demolished Ajax's arguments to the certain satisfac tion of the Tory who justifies land mono poly because he has paid for it. Just like a man who says, 'My wife has a right to obey me, because I bought her from her father.' much settlement in the settled districts on river frontages. The lands were sold by auction, at which, as my experience of those times, no poor man could procure an acre of the soil. I knew a good, faith ful old servant of a squatter's who had saved money go cap in hand to his master and say, 'Please, sir, will you let me pur chase one of these farms to be sold by auc tion next week ?' 'Not one acre; I will rim it up to three times its value before I allow any settlers on my run,' was the answer he received. There was another poor Scotchman, with a large family, who built a cabin on a village reserve. He used to work for a brother a few m...

"THE TIGER BEFORE MY CABIN DOOR." To the Editor "The Farmer and Settler." [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 2 May 1906

'THE TIGER BEFORE MY CABIN DOOR.' To the Editor 'The Farmer and Settler.' Sir, — 'Little Landholder' of course means Socialist by 'Tiger,' but I wish to inform him through the columns of your valuable paper that I dread hordes of monkeys prowling around my cabin door far more than I do his fanciful tigers. It is because I dread the mon keys that I am a Protectionist, and a ' progressive land taxer,' for these poli cies urn best suited to fill millions of cabins in both town and country with in dustrious, prosperous people, who would be interested in beating back the mon keys. It may reasonably be assumed that if these laborites whom he designates as 'tigers' gained control of this country, and had its industries under the collec tive principle, they would thenceforth be come the staunchest Protectionists on earth, and that they would then shut out cheap labor products to create labor here ; with the beneficial result of an influx of 'people in place of the so-called cheap goods, tha...

MR. MclNERNEY IN EXPLANA TION. To the Editor 'The Farmer and Settler.' Sir — With regard to my remarks at our last executive meeting' as to our attitude to the pastoralists, I meant that we ?should use our influence as an associa tion to bring' about the resumption of Scrub and Improvement Leases, in the terms of the motion moved by me and seconded by Mr. J. G. Carroll at the last annual Conference, and which reads as follows : 'That Legislation be intro duced providing for the resumption (where necessary in the interests of resi dential settlement) of scrub and improve ment leases in the Central Division. In speaking to this motion at the Annual Conference, I . said : 'If the Minister Avould undertake to so amend the Closer Settlement Act that he could resume 'these lands and compensate the owners, it would enable him to supply cheaper lands than if he had to buy the estates 'back.' Now, Mr. Editor, I am of the s'ame opinion still, and I think we would be doing good work by concent...

MR. McNAMARA AND THE ASSOCIATION. A WORD IN REPLY. To the Editor, "The Farmer and Settler." [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 2 May 1906

MR. McNAMARA AND THE ASSO CIATION. A WORD IN REPLY. To the Editor, 'The Farmer and Settler.' , Sir, — In reference to Louis McNama ra' s letter in your issue of the 4th ult., as secretary of the MorangorellBarmed I man Branch, of which he is a member, I I feel called upon to reply. I He says — 'I know one prominent I 'bianch, and the members are two publi I -cans, one butcher, etc.' He evidently I does not refer to our branch, as the cap I -does not fit. We certainly have one pub lican a member, who pays his- annual subscription regularly, but ne,ver takes any part in the Association meetings. 1 am inclined to think that Mr. McNa ?mara refers to a branch that exists in a [ large town not many miles from 'here, and whose secretary will perhaps speak [ -for himself. My branch is. composed en tirely of small 'landholders, with the ex ception of the publican mentioned, and one storekeeper, neither of whom take any active part beyond paying their subs. Mr. McNamara is the largest land-, ...

CONTRIBUTED ARTICLES on Topical Subjects. IRRIGATION—IV. No. 4. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 2 May 1906

CONTRIBUTED ARTICLES on Topical Subjects. IRRIGATION— IV. No. 4 By Robert Gibson, Hay. Experience in the United States has shown that irrigation is often advanta geous in localities where the climate is humid, where a drought of a few weeks' duration results in decided injury to the crops or pasturage. Consequently in many parts of the humid regions small irrigating systems have been established for occasional use. These arc regarded as an insurance against the accidents of weather. Our own experience in Australia has shown that there is no portion of it but what can be benefited by having the command of water, as even in the best districts there are occasional seasons that are dry, or the rain has not come at the right time. The almost universal prac tice of watering grass plots and vege tables testifies to the great value of the artificial application of water, and the same systematic watering of orchards and fields would produce similar benefits. At the same time it must be admit...
