Personal [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
&lt;J* Personal &lt;£ - - Mr. Sydney Kidman, the great cat tle-owner, has been expressing the opinion that it would be a good thing if the much-talked-of American meat trust did extend its operations to Australia. It would mean, he says, more outlet for our surplus produce. And so long as the trust was a buyer in the open market, no doubt, this Avould he so. But we can talk more about that when the trust actually starts serious operations, if it ever does. At the moment there is more interest in Mr. Kidman himself. Any one seeing him sitting on the top-rail of a sale yard, would scarcely think that he was one of the very largest owners of cattle in the world, and absolutely the largest owner of horse flesh. Yet not so many years ago he was, as a youth, running the mail out from Wilcannia. He bought a horse and sold it at a profit. That started him on his remarkable career as a horse and cattle dealer, for al though he occupies enormous tracts of territory, and number...

Large Estates in Settled Districts. The Need for their Sub-division. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
Q a Large Estates in Settled Districts. The Need for their Sub-division. ~ 13 13 Writes a correspondent:-"The time hag arrived when the owners of large estates situated in the settled ?districts, and used wholly or mainly for grazing purposes, should ask themselves if it is not better to cut up the property for closer settlement .purposes, ana even invest the pro ceeds in Government stocks, than con tinue to use the land on lines that is sure to yield a lesser return in the near future. The grea,t and steady rise in land prices within the last .five years has affected agricultural .and pastoral interests alike. Guided Iby the average of prices obtained dur ing that period good grazing land will bring from £2 10s. to £3 per acre, according to distance from railway. -Taking the lower figure, the interest ?at 5 per cent is 2s.

Qa 9P Cultivation ae Nj Irish Blight in Potatoes ^ The Efficacy of Spraying. Some Useful Hints. Type of Potato Sprayer at Work. IN most of the districts where Irish Blight appeared last year, it is re-appearing this season, Mr. W. J. Allen re ferring to . some published - opinions that the disease ===== that has developed is not ===== Irish blight, says, "there is absolutely no possibility of mistake about this blight being with us. We have to realise that we have it, and that we have got to fight it. As soon as the conditions are favour able for its growth it shows up in a good many districts." But if taken in time, and properly sprayed, Mr. Allen sees no reason why farmers Bhould not be able to get marketable crops. The proper spraying mixture consists of a combination of 6 lbs. of bluestone and 4 lbs. of lime dissolved in 50 gallons of water. The first spraying should "be given when the plants are about eight inches high, it being n-cessary that the mixture should be distributed ...

BREEZA BRANCH. The annual' meeting of the Breeza branch was held' on Hatch 11. tfee rain and generally unsettled state of the weather interfering with the at tendance. The secretary's report showed a considerable amount of progress- and improvement brougho about by the efforts of the association in the dis trict,. and the treasurer's , report showed the finances in good order, the year ending up with a balance of £3 7s. 6d.

BROCKLESBY. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
BROCKLESBY. Mr. W. Scnilg, who "was present at the meeting of Brock lesby branch last week, reports that the claims of the ll.YV.U. were read and discussed, and the opinions of practical farmers may be summed up as follows :-As farm work in its various branches is very much affected by weather con ditions, farmers are bitterly opposed to any interference of farm work and family by the 11. W . U. freedom of contract with workmen is to be in sisted upon. During the last few years wages have gone up about 25 per cent., and a good man always received good wages without legisla tion. A sum up to £5 was voted to be given to the Farmers' Defence Fund, if it should be required, in con testing the claims of the JR..W.U. "The idea," further writes Mr. Schilg, " of a farmer giving prefer ence to union men before his own family is considered the ' last straw that breaks the camel's back,' and the height of absurdity ! This shows what they are going to do if given an opportunity. And Ave reasona...
HOMESTEAD BRANCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
HOMESTEAD BRANCH. At a recent meeting of the Home stead branch presided over by Mr. J. I\ Chick, it was resolved to approach the P.P. Board to have a bonus placed on rabbit scalps. The secre tary was also instructed to procure information in regard to the Herd Testing Association with a view of forming one in the district. A sub committee drew up a scale of wages for rural workers, which was adopted, and forwarded to the executive. The members were of the opinion that no satisfactory scale of wages could be made to apply to the farmer and , settler until such time as prices for his products were fixed from year to year.
PONTO. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
PONTO. The monthly meeting of this branch was held on the 16th instant. A let ter was received from the Agricul tural Department, asking if any de finite steps had .been taken towards, the formation of a branch of the Agricultural Bureau. Some months ago this branch wrote to several other branches near about Geurie, asking if any oT their members were favour able towards forming an Agricultural Bureau, with Geurie as-centre. So far Geurie is the only one from which a reply has been received, and it was unfavourable. However, a good many members of the Portto branch seem eager to make a start, and think it likely a sufficient number of meihbers will eventually be secured to get the thing going. A reply to that effect was directed to be for warded to the department. After some other small matters of local interest had been settled the meeting gave its attention to Mr. R. Pattan, who kindly attended in response to a special invitation to en lighten the branch on various matters in conn...
Notes of the Week The Darling Harbour Jam. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
Notes of the Week The Darling Harbour Jam. According to a statement of the Chief Commissioner to a deputation this week, it is not the railways, but Darling Harbour which is respon sible for the tardy lifting of wheat from country stations. Xo doubt, in a large measure this is true, for the Darling Harbour yards are notori ously inadequate to cope with the produce which is now crowding there in ever-increasing volume. Probably the producer cannot expect much re lief until the Glebe Island depot is finished, and this, according to the official estimates, will not be for an other two years! Of course the rail way department is not to be blamed for this. Tue blame rather must rest with past governments, which had not the foresight to anticipate the growing shipping requirements of a , fast-developing State. Now, how- i ever, that the extent of the require ment is gauged the present Govern ment might put a little more vim in to the work of construction. There is no sufficient reason why...
The Question of Questions. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
The Question of Questions. &lt; Owing to the action of the British Immigration League, 100 immigrants are due here shortly. This batch is not by any means the first introduced by the League, which is an inde pendent body. Their immigrants are brought to us without a penny of cost to the Government. They are selected men of good character, such as we want here as intensely as a patient suffering from anaemia wants good red blood to course along the arteries of life. But the Government has taken up towards these immigrants a semi-hostile attitude, or, at least an atti tude of profound discouragement to the British Immigration League and all those who, in common with that League, realise that population is for Australia the. question of questions; involving all others, and embracing every other problem or our national life. The Acting Premier states that the Government takes no responsibility- for these immigrants. So far as a guarantee of ernpk^Tnent is concerned, the Governme...

** Nations may battle and the world rock with revolution hut the land will care for him who cares for it," Telephone 1521 City. Telegrams, "The Land," Sydney Offices 3 Spring- Street, Sydney. FRIDAY. MARCH 31. 1911. The March of Organisation. The most encouraging- feature about the organisation cam paign at present in progress on behalf of the Farmers' and Settlers' Association is the responsive attitude of large classes of farmers who previously had not realised the need of pro ducers as a body standing together. The coastal men, of whom the dairymen form the large majority, are coming in splendidly. The middle North Coast-between the Hunter and the Bellinger, let us say-are almost solidly with the Association. On and about the Manning particularly some vigorous branches are in being, and a ijumber more in course of formation. On the far North Coast-the Richmond to the Tweed-Mr. Wether spoon, M.L.C., has been meeting with excellent results : and some of the most influential men in ...
