ABOUT NORTHERN PEOPLE. EARLY BUNDARRA. Mr. Baldwio, Pioneer. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 30 May 1919
/ ABOUT NORTHERN PEOPLE. EARLY BUNDARRA. Mr. Baldwio, Pioneer. Mr. William Baldwin, son., who fur nished the material for the interesting article regarding Early Bundarra which appeared in the Voice of the North last week, has resided in the Bundarra dis trict almost continuously for a period of 74 years. Mr. Baldwin was horn in Singleton on the 1 Oth February, 1835, celebrating his 84th birthday in Febru ary. When ton years of age he mi grated from the valley of the Hunter for Kingstown, that property having been originally taken up bv a Mr. King, an uncle of his, with whom he made his advent to these parts. Controversies have taken place of late as to who is the oldest drover about these parts, and Advocate writer feels justified in passing the 'belt to Mr. Baldwin, for as far back as October, 1845, we find him, in his own words, "driving a mol} of old milkers and wrinkles from Singleton to Kingstown, keeping time with the bullock teams." In those days, the old man remarked (with ...

AGRICULTURAL LIME—AN OCCASION FOR CO-OPERATION [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 30 May 1919
AGRiCULTBML LIME—AN OCCASION FOR CO-OPERATION TheVxieed for lime for .agricultural" purposes,' and the difficulty of procuring .supplies at prices that would make Jiming an attractive, operation > to farmers, have.furnished a problem that has - been before the Department of Agriculture for years, but without any jsatisfactory solution presenting/itself. From', time . to time .concessions have been obtained (chiefly in the reduction of freights), but the total cost of this useful' soil ameliorant remained almost prohibitively high and supplies scarce. Lately, the Department has been in -touch with firms that it was thought might be able to meet the situation, but it -was found that a regular demand, sufficient at least to keep a kiln running continuously, would- be essential ..to a substantial reduction in,price. It seems, therefore, that it is largely a matter foi farmers to take up co-opieratively. For tunately, the problem of- organisation is n'ofr so difficult as might appear,...
THE PROGRESSIVE FARMER. MALTING BARLEY. Greater Yield and Greater Value Than Wheat. ITS RECOMMENDATIONS TO FARMERS. Small Areas on Clean Land Should Be First Attempted. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 30 May 1919
e THE PROGRESSIVE FARMERS "W MALTING BARLEY. Greater Yield and Greater Value Than Wheat. ITS RECOMMENDATIONS TO FARMERS. Small Areas on Clean Land Should Be First Attempted. Although increased attention has been paid to malting barley of iecent years, the Chief Inspector points- out that maltsters still find it necessary to pur chase large quantities outside the St,at». notwithstanding that the local product is of excellent quality, and that our own farmers should be able to supply all that is needed. As a matter of fact, a leading malt ster has stated that New South Wales barJey appears to contain a larger per centage of diastase than barley ob tained elsewhere; moreover, he has ob served that the grain from the northern part of the State is richest in that con stituent, that from the central west is less so, and that from the south slightly less again. This variation is the more interesting in view of the fact that superphosphate is now well recognised as decreasing in value from ...

JOHN BRIDGE'S SUCCESS DUE TO HARD WORK AND STUDY [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 30 May 1919
JOHN BRIDGE'S SUCCESS DUE TO HARD WORK AND STUDY The salo of the firm of John Bridge and Co. recalls the fact that it was started 'bv John Bridge, a self-taught man. As a lad, while working at hay stacks, it is recorded, he put in smoke oh at a book. Later on he became a bank manager, but it was not big enough, and he started as commission agent. He neither drank nor smoked. His idea was that if you treated the public fairly and honestly you must get on. While travelling once in New England he stopped one night at the home of a settler he had never met before. A discussion on wool after tea led to the man on the land un folding his plans to the commission agent and the latter's opinion on the proposal was asked. Before he left next morning John Bridge drew a cheque for £2000 and waited some time before he got security for it. He was a great judge of human nature and the settler's lionest manner had impressed him.

Deceased had been a resi- dent of the Inverell district for over 50 years, and reared a family of two sons and six daughters. Jealous of Armidale. A protest is being lodged here against the name "Armidale" being given to the new electorate of which the boun- daries have just been published. The electorate embraces the whole of the old electorates of Gough (of which In- verell was the most important town) and Armidale, and portions of Bingara and Tenterfieid. Residents hereabouts are of opinion that the new electorate should be given a name that will not give any particular town embraced with- in its territory any undue prominence &nbsp; over another centre. Tenterfieid and Glen Innes municipalities are also pro- testing against the name the Commis- sioners have given the new seat. Retiring From Force.

DECENTRALISATION. Its Present Need on North Coast. COUNTRYMAN'S VIGOROUS ARTICLE. Demands that Port Stephens Be Made Port for North and North-West. (By Anti-Groover.) To the thoughtful mind it is now more than ever 'evident (with the shadow of the maritime strike hangiug over our heads ami threatening to isolate th* entire North Coast with all its great dairying industry so essential to the well-being of our State), that the rail way started so long ago to connect ns with the outside world is still far from •comp'etion, writes Anti-Groover in tho Northern Star.

A New Business Creed. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 6 June 1919
A View of Hunter Street, Newcastle. Five thousand business men, asenibled from the four corners of the United States, recently adQpted the following resolutions as the new - creed of American business, at the Reconstruction Congress held at At lantic City:— (1) I Believe that Labor ano Capital are partners, not enemies; their interests are common interests, not opposed; and neither can attain . the fullest measure of prosperity at the expense of the other, but only in association with the other. (2) I Believe that the purpose of Industry is quite as much to ad vance social, well-being as material well-being, and in'pursuit of that pur pose, the interests of the community should be carefully considered; the well-being of the - employees, as reapects living and working conditions,' should'be fully guarded; management should be adequately recognised, and Capital should be justly compensated; and failure in any of these particulars means loss to all.
