Selling Land Where Rates Not Paid. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
Selling Land Where Kates Wot Paid. The Parramatta Council, in com mon with many others, is riot satis fied with the provision in the L.G. Act which compels councils to wait twenty years before they can se.i un occupied land on which rates have not been paid. First they must take possession of the land after four years' rates are owing, then retain possession for another sixteen year?, and then if the owner does not turn up, the land vests absolutely in the council. It does certainly seem a long time to wait, and it is a serious matter for an owner of land. to re main in obscurity, and keep his whereabouts unknown while his land is improving in value on account of the council's expenditure in the dis trict, to which he himself does not contribute one farthing. Some more simple method surely could bp provi ded whereby councils would be saved all the trouble attendant on leasing land for sixteen years without any remuneration beyond the few pence re ceived from the land for rates. With...
Shire Insurances. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
Shire Insurances. The question of shire insurances is one that has been engaging the at tention of the Shires Association for some time. The executive has every confidence that an insurance fund coukl he established in connection with the councils, of a co-operative nature, in which all classes of ins\ir ance effected by them might be un dertaken, and a large amount of money which now goes to swell the profits of insurance companies, could be retained in the councils' hands. That it can be done there is no doubt, and in time will become ail ac complished fact. Certain legal diffi culties stand in the way, at present, no doubt, h'o many risks have to be undertaken by councils, that they are no^>calJed,'tipoii for their. own pro tection to take out..a number of poli cies. Bland .Shire Council has decided to'submit to conference next May, a motion affirming the r.dvisableness of forming a joint shire insurance com pany on the basis indicated.

IMPORTANT TIMBER DECISION. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
IMPORTANT TIMBER DECISION. An interesting action for damages has just been decided at Newcastle District Court, in which some resi- dents of Yarramalong, in that dis- trict, were the parties concerned. It appears that H. Sternbeck, had ap- plied for a residential c.p. of 100 acres in the parish of Stowe. Before survey and confirmation by the local Land Board, Messrs. Waters Bros., mill-owners, had cut and removed a quantity of mill logs. The plaintiff in the case, Mr. Sternbeck, notified Waters Bros., that he had made ap- plication for the area of land from which the timber ,was being remov- ed, and cautioned them against re- moving the timber. Waters Bros, claimed that, as the Forestry Depart- ment's officer had granted them a li- cense to cut and remove the timber in question, they were entitled to continue so doing until the area was surveyed and the application confirm- ed. Sternbeck then issued a writ for £200 damages, and the case came before Judge Fitzliardinge and a jury of ...
POINTED SPEAKING AT CROKI. United Action. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
POINTED SPEAKING AT CROKI. United Action. The demands of the R.W.U. brought realistically before the minds 01 the farmers of tne Croki district, the absolute necessity of organisa tion, that is if they, wish for any thing like a fair deal. To this end, therefore, they assembled in large force in the Oddfellows' Hall, at Croki last Saturday night, and deba ted as to the best action they could take to defend their rights from the R.W.U. Mr. A. Perrett, who organ ised the meeting, was in the chair, and on rising to address the gather ing, pointed out the advisability of forming- a branch of the F. and S. Association. The aims of the R.W.U. would affect every farmer and dairy farmer in the Commonwealth. They had had an illustration in the New castle strike, of the immense harm a labour organisation could achieve, and he was sure that none in the room would care to see a similar state of things in regard to the in dustry in which they were engaged. The rates of wages demanded were extort...

SOUTH EASTERN DISTRICT. The South-Eastern District Coun cil met at I-Ienty on the 20tli inst., Mr. W. A. Stoyles, president, in the chair, the other councillors present be ing Messrs. Thompson and Schnaars (Walla subdivision), Duffy (Henty), and Currie (Culcairn). It was resolv ed that the Walla subdivision and Culcairn branches hold a joint meet ing at Culcairn, when Mr. Trethowan will be asked to meet the members, and others. It was decided to circu larise the district branches, drawing attention to the necessity of using their influence to increase the mem bership,. so as to combat the demands of the Rural Workers' Union. it was resolved that the Depart ment of Agriculture be written to, objecting to fees being charged for the. Agricultural Bureau, and sug gesting that it be carried out on lines similar to the Victorian system. The resolution that all Crown lands (un der lease or otherwise) in the district be brought under some form of ten ure for settlement purposes, was car rie...

THE CALL TO ARMS. Organising in the South Coast. With regard to the special organis ing efforts the executive have decided to make in the interests of tlie mem bers of the association and landhold ers generally, Councillor Drummond reports that tnere is not a mile of raihvay in that part of six shires al lotted to him. He also states that, owing to the rain falling by the foot, instead of by points, in the extreme South Coast, the roads are almost impassable where not macadamised, and the rivers and creeks in a state of almost chronic flood. Under the ciricumstances, Councillor Drummond has asked the general secretary to forward to each branch in his district a copy of the claims which the Rural Workers' Union intend to file in the Federal Arbitration Court about June next. He has also written very fully to each branch secretary, and asked tlie members of each branch to assist, particularly in the following matters : 1. That the members consider only that part of tne rural workers' ...
WORTH COAST DAIRYMEN UNITE WITH THE F. & S. ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
WORTH COAST DAIRYMEN UNITE WITH THE F. & S. ASSOCIATION. Mr. John Wetherspoon, M.L.C., has been impressing on the minds of the dairy farmers of the Northern rivers tlie absolute necessity for them to organise, so as to be in a position to meet the onslaught of the R.W.U., and from the reports which have been published, his words of wisdom have mostly fallen on good soil. Last week lie addressed the farmers of Casino, Smd made a vigorous speech in de nunciation of the unreasonable and uniust demands to be levied on farm ers by the R.W.U. The farmers and settlers were the makers of the na tion," said Mr. Wetherspoon, "and as such he wanted them to awake and look after their own interests. The only way for them to combat the evils around them was to unite, for unity is strength. Union must be met by union, and while the farmer stood alone he would go to the wall. The Farmers and Settlers Associa tion represented the men on the land, and every farmer and man who de rives his liv...

Stock MORE WOOL WANTED. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
MORE WOOL WANTED. " What will have to be one of the watchwords of the agriculturist ana grazier is more wool on the sheep. It is now 104 years ago since a solid start was made in sheep husbandry in Australia, and as this country has all the essentials to make wool growing the best and most profitable in the world, the average yield of wool per sheep should have been more than what it is. Statistics are very , useful and needful, but as regards the returns from the wool industry, they have not always been reliable. This is not the fault of the Statistical Office, but of circumstances, which under present conditions cannot be altered. The wool year ends on the 30th June, the collection of sheep returns on the 31st December, and the statistical returns, as far as New South Wales is concerned, on both dates, the' first being the close of the Government's financial year. Thus it may happen, and it generally does, that wool belonging to one season is not sent down in time to be in cluded ...

MURRUMBIDGEE IRRIGABLE LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
MURRUMBIDGEE IRRIGABLE LANDS. Increasing interest is being taken in everything concerning the vast area of land that is eventually to "be made irrigable from the Burren-juck reservoir. The Murrumbidgee Irriga tion Resumption Act has given the Trust power to resume altogether iya million acres of irrigable and dry land, but the resumption will not be effected all at once. On the contrary, it will be gradual and systematic, the first land resumed being, of course, the first to be dealt with, and the rest as the requirements of settlers make expedient or necessary. The eager demand that is being made for information as to the intentions of the Trust, must to some extent wait on the consummation of the first resumption, and this in its turn is dependent upon a valuation being made, and this is the business of the local land board. In the course of an interview the other day, Mr. L. A. B. Wade, Chief Engineer for Irrigation and Drainage, told a representative of "The Land" that the Trust...
FAT STOCK BUYERS v. SELLERS. Annual Cricket Match. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
FAT STOCK BUYERS v. SELLERS. Annual Cricket Match. The .annual cricket match between the Flemington fat stock buyers and sellers was held on Wednesday last, at the Manly Oval. A good muster of both attended, and it was through out a jolly affair. The match started at 10.30 a.m., and an adjournment for luncheon was made at 1.15 p.m. Needless to remark, the commissariat was of the most liberal order. After lunch had been finished, Mr. H. S. Badgery, the chairman, proposed "The Day We Celebrate," in his usual feli citous manner, and he was support ed in the toast by Messrs. Grubb and A. Henson. Mr. Grubb proposed the health of the selling agents, to which a happy response was made by seve ral. The health of the buyers was in the hands of Mr. A. Henson, and to this Mr. George Oldham and E. O'Brien modestly replied. The only other toasts were: "The Press," by the chairman, and the chairman, by Mr. George Oldham, jun. The ar rangements were in the hands of Mr. E. A. Chisholm, and they wer...

THE MEANING OF " UNIFICATION." [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
THE MEANING OF " UNIFICA TION." A correspondent asks to be in formed . as to the meaning of the terms " Unification" and " Federal." There are three possible forms of Government : the unificationist or unitary as it is generally called., the federal, and the confederal. Each has essential differences from the others. In a unificationist country the central legislature is dominant, and if there be subordinate legisla tures these are solely under the con trol of the dominating body. The United Kingdom is an example of this form. The House of Commons is as supreme in Scotland and in Ireland as in England itself. In a federation there must be a written constitution, which grants certain powers to the central legislature and reserves other powers to other legis lative organs, which within their own spheres are quite independent of the central government. The Common wealth of Australia Canada, and the United States are examples of this form. A confederation is little more than a temporary...
A BOOM IN ENSILAGE MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
A BOOM IN ENSILAGE MAKING. It is a curious but interesting fact that, though the lessons of bad sea sons have had little effect on a great majority of larmers in convincing them of the necessity of making silos, and filling them up with supplies for the possibly droughty time ahead, a phenomenally good season has had marvellous results in that direction. The making of ensilage is now at tracting very widespread attention, and Mr. Valder, the Department of Agriculture's Chief Inspector, informs us that" the department is being very freely requisitioned for advice as to how to make silos, the best plan to follow, and what fodder to use for ensilage making. Needless,, to" say,, the department is very pleased indeed to note the awakened energies of the farmers in this direction, ana is only too anxious to give them all the information de sired. Numerous applications have also been received for inspectotrs to visit various districts and give the practical demonstrations of making ensilag...

DEMONSTRATION FARMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
DEMONSTRATION FARMS. Demonstration farms are to be es tablished in various parts of the bcate, and there are many districts al ready pushing their claims to con sideration. The ultimate number has not been decided on ; there may even tually be a score or upwards, but at present it is not likely that more than six will be started. It is pro-, posed, that, in each district where a demonstration farm is to be worked, what is regarded as a living area for that district shall be obtained, and the idea is simply to show how such a farm can be made to pay wlien worked under up-to-date methods. In the wheat districts, for instance, the department will endeavour to illus trate how yields can be improved by adopting the most modern methods of cultivation, paying special attention to the rotation of crops. In some cases the land will be allowed to lie fallow the first year, then next year it will be sown for a fodder crop, and the third year wheat will be raised on it. Much, of course, will de...
