THE EASD0WN RABBIT TRAP. By some peculiar circumstance the ad vertisement of this practical trap in our last issue did not give any address where farmers and settlers could write to for information or send their orders We think Mr. Easdown must have been trv ing to say so many good things about the trap, in his advertisement, that he omit ted to inciuue nis auure&s. mi. ^awjj bell, though, soon found this out. Quite a number of letters have reached him from country friends asking for the ad dress, which is now given as ' Victoria Place, 575 George Street, Sydney, right opposite to Anthony Hordern's mammoth building.' Mr. Easdown has now estab lished a factory there, and is building the traps at a furious jate. ? ^ ^

RABBIT EXPORT TRADE. THE DANYSZ EXPERIMENT. Protest of Melbourne Business Men. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 9 May 1906

RABBIT EXPORT TRADE. THE DANYSZ EXPERIMENT. Protest of Melbourne Business Men. Twenty-five business men interested in the rabbit export trade met in Melbourne recently to consider means for preventing the adoption of the proposal of Dr. Danysz to exterminate rabbits by means of inoculation. Mr. A. L. Jqubert, the chairman, said that the Premier of New South Wales had promised to allow Dr. Danysz to make experiments against the advice of his medical officer and the inspector of stock. Mr. Deakin was strongly adverse to the proposal, but the question of health was not a Commonwealth matter. He thought a sub-committee might in duce Mr. Deakin to bring pressure to bear upon Mr. Carruthers in order to persuade him to abandon his purpose. Mr. Brown (Government inspector) be lieved that the germ would not spread by infection and would not be as potent as it was expected to be. He thought that if a scheme were adopted it would be abandoned altogether for a time from a commercial point of vi...

SUCCESSFULLY FIGHTING THE PEST. HOW BUNNY CAN BE SUBDUED. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 9 May 1906

SUCCESSFULLY FIGHTING THE PEST. HOW BUNNY CAN BE SUBDUED. I i he following letter appeared in' a late number of the ' Australian Star ' : — Sir, — I notice in this evening's issue where your reporter, in an interview with 'Mr. H. A. Benn, on the rabbit question, was given an instance of the successful way the pest were dealt with on the Iandra estate, attributing the clearance of bunny to the systematic manner in which trappers worked on that property. Now, as I have been one of the Hon. G. H. Greene's employees for the past ' four years, and part of my duties was me suppression or ounny, 1 may claim to have a knowledge of the means em- ' ployed, and work done which has brought about the undeniable assertion that Ian dra is free from rabbits. Firstly I may surprise some of your readers when 1 assert that at no time within the last four years have trappers, other than the regular station hands, been at work on Iandra station. If you wilJ allow me space, I will, as briefly as the subj...

THE WORK IN THE WEST. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 9 May 1906

THE WORK IN THE WEST. Mr. Dulhunty, Rabbit Inspector, has furnished the Dubbo 'Liberal' with the following interesting report of his last trip : — 'I have been for a trip round Bunde mar, Collie, and Gilgandra, and although the country round Bundemar is looking wen, it is oniy un me numa^c. ncauj all the country I saw, though looking nice and green, is very bare, and wants rain badly. The feed is very short and thin, except where the barley grass is, and there it looks splendid. All stock are in good condition, and I think there will be a record lambing by present ap pearances. I consider the present short ness of grass in those parts is principally clue to rabbits, which are simply swarm ing. But master bunny is having a very ugly time just now, as, owing to the value of his skin, exeryone is going for him bald-headed, and he is being slain in tens of thousands. Men, women, and children are .throwing up all other employment to chase him, and it is hard to get a man to do other work...

IN THE CARCOAR DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 9 May 1906

IN THE CARCOAR DISTRICT. At a meeting of the Carcoar Pastures Board on Wednesday, the inspector re ported that rabbits were numerous in patches, especially where owners are not poisoning enough, but generally through out the district a great deal of poisoning and trapping are being done, with good breed, and as they were taking baits readily, he considered that advantage should be taken of the present favourable period to poison largely. The inspector found many owners were doing nothing to keep rabbits down, and he concluded they were anxious for the pest to increase, with a view of making money during the winter, as both skins and carcases are fetching good prices.

THE GULLIBILITY OF OUR PEOPLE! [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 9 May 1906

THE GULLIBILITY OF OUR PEOPLE! John Elder, Mosman, writes : — The virulent and inoculous disease that is go ing to be introduced into this pure, wholesome, and virgin continent for the destruction of rabbits, is set forth as one manufactured under rigid specifications and circumscribed within drastically de marked limits. It is, I understand by the most definite language, to be a most loatnsome scourge, lerrioie in us con tagion, and certain in its corruption and destruction, being universal death, but only to rabbits. It is absolutely untran sitionable to any other form of life, and, furthermore, renders the dead carcases perfectly harmless to bird, beast, or creeping thing. The air will be perfectly saved from infection, and the patent, life-withering blast will be of such a spe cific character as to be in no way injur ious to stock or to human beings. This is all put forward as being brainy and vaultingly scientific ; but such state ments purporting to bear on the scientific rese...

THE OPPOSITION TO DANYSZ. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 9 May 1906

THE OPPOSITION TO DANYSZ. Writing under date 1st instant, Mr. Benn says: — ' It may not be amiss,' to recall the attention or the public, i.e., the taxpayers, to the results of the distribu tion of vaccine by the Argentine Govern ment, as related in the ' Pastoralist Re view ' of March 16, 1905. It is stated that the branch of the Pasteur Institute nrpnornrl n iinrrino cnnnncprl tn r*»nr1f»r cattle immune to tick fever ; that after due investigation the Government dis tributed the vaccine ; that the cattle in oculated, mostly valuable stud bulls, died and that the owners claimed compensa tion from the Government. We are told that the Danysz experiment will be aiaci1: here under Government supervisi an, tltre fore the Government will be responsible for any losses which may be incurred. In the Argentine case the inoculation was not a contagious disease, otherwise the consequences might have been ruin ous. The experiment with contagious diseases now proposed here lias no fin ality, and...

SUPPLIES BY BOAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 9 May 1906

SUPPLIES BY BOAT. On the wharves oats and maize arrived in large quantities, but the demand seem ed quite equal to the supply ; in fact, oats advanced during the week to *he tune of ad. to 3d. per bushel. Rumor had it that maize would see 2/- in May, as Queensland would swamp the market; but, despite her heavy yields, buyers are ready to operate at over this figure on board Brisbane or ex rail Wallangarra, and offerings so far have not proved too heavy. Relatively speaking, maize is far and away the cheapest feed grain offering, and seeing that mill offal and lucerne hay are so dear, Sydney alone can furnish a demand for 12,000 bags weekly at present rates. If Northern river farmers regulate supplies aright, there should be no reason for lower prices. Oats are dear on account of a partial failure in New Zealand, and the conse quent heavy demand on Victorian Alger ians for Western Australia and South Africa. Oats, however, will not have much call locally with maize at present 1* titc...

SUCCESSFUL FARMERS. WHAT SOME OF THEM HAD TO CO THROUGH. A resident of Kempsey has written to one of the City morning- dailies on the North Coast lands, gives the following | as illustrations of how success may be won by determined and continued energy, and what hardships some of the men on the land had to encounter in the struc-jrle to make homes : — . 1.

\ A SPECIAL LEASE MATTER. ? At the Land Appeal Court at Wagga on Wednesday, Alfred Woodbridge ap pealed against the recommendation of the local land board for refusal of his special lease application. When this case came before the board in December last there was no opposition to it, the dis trict surveyor recommending the granting of the application for 10 years at an an nual rental of 2s. 6d. per acre. Staff surveyor Graeme favoured the application, and the applicant stated that he was will ing to accept a lease on the terms indi- . cated by the district surveyor. The land was within an important travelling stock reserve on the main Sydney road, and was very much used by -.r. veiling stock. There was no appearance at the B6ard on behalf of the Stock Branch. Two mem bers qf the board, from their own local knowledge, recommended the refusal of the application, on the grounds that the area was required in the public interests and that the land applied for was within one of the most ...

AT REDFERN. A further evidence of the busy plough ing operations throughout all the inland districts was noticeable at the Redfern auctions, where supplies were very light indeed. Even chaff, which constitutes the chief commodity always, was conspic uous by its absence, from 15 to 30 trucks being the daily supply. Prices ruled firm, and buyers, fearing inland supplies ncic giving uui, luiiicu uicir aiicmioii to South Australian offerings, with the re sult that during the week heavy supplies have been bought to arrive from Adelaide and Melbourne. Lucerne, too, was in light supply, and record prices obtained.
