Wool Deadlock. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 7 May 1915
Wool Deadlock. Schutcr Bell and Co., Limited, re port:-.Notwithstanding a definite guarantee giving by the shipping companies that 'sufficient space is available for immediate shipment of all wool that would be offered this and next week, buyers did not bid at the sales on Tuesday, though they ~ attended the sale room in full force. Three catalogues were submitted on r the usual terms and conditions, and as no question can arise as to the delay in shipment even if bone or more boats snould be commandeered by the Government, buyers' inaction is unintelligible, since there is no possibility of the difficulty antici pated by them becoming a practical one. It is impossible at the moment to foresee what may be the ulti mate outcome of the trouble. Some growers may not be aware that buy ers absolutely refuse to pay interest on purchases not'-paid for on expiry of the usual fourteen days allowed for payment, known in the trade as "the prompt." The chief point for which selling brokers have...

A TRAGIC POSITION. The present drought arid the spec iaI conditions prevailinig in. this country have. caused some cxtra ordinary positions. A case.in point is reported from a district in River ina,' the culmination of which 'is tragic. ''A landowner who combines wheat farming with sheep raising on a fairly large scale six weeks ago purchased a suppily of .ensilage "to keep his sheep alive, as his property was bare absolutely of feed. . So far the fodder _has not arrived, as the railways have not been able to sup ply the trucks. The'landholder has a supply of wheat on hand that"ne kept for seed, and it is said"that the -Government will not allow him to ues it to feed his sheep. The Go vernment railways fail to deliver the fodder ordered, and! 'the owner has to watch his sheep die. .. This is. intei'esting: There is, a little place' in this State called Tev ern. Its population' consists. of 40 families, say 300 persons, including women and children., Yet: this prac tically unknown ce...

THE Queanbeyan Age, FRIDAY, MAY 7, 1915. CURRENT TOPICS. THE DROUGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 7 May 1915
FRIDAY, MAY 7, 1915. CURRENT .TOPICS. THE DROUGHT. Persons in autliority seem to have a rooted objection to acknowledge that anything calamitous can pos sibly :take place in the realm over which they exercise control. How ,far a feeling of this kind may have influenced! Mr. Fisher, the "Prime Minister, .in his remark minimising the severity of the drought, it would be difficult to say. There is, how ever, a concensus of opinion among farmers and grazicrs. to the effect 'that over a large area of 'the Com monwealth, the drought has been worse than any, which has been ex perienced in the' last half century. What is . stilt more disquieting, in many localities it has not yet rc laxed its grip, so that the outlook for the winter, which is now fairly upon us, is anything but cheerful. Under these circumstances, it would seem to be a b'etter policy to arrange for a copious supply from outside, of breadstuffs, fodder, and the like, than to fiddle and tinker with thel wretchedly , inadequat...

BELGIAN DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 7 May 1915
.BELGIAN DAY. May 14 is to be observed as Bel gian Day and every town in New South Wales is making a special effort to register a record. in one day's giving for the world on behalf of the starving Belgians, and it is hoped that Queanbeyan will not be one whit behindhand when the day arrives. The committee are work ing well. - It may be said, and no doubt it is said by many, that they gave to the Belgian Fund some weeks or months ago. That may be true, but, at the same time, the Belgians have had their country in vaded, thousands of their bread winners killed, their primary and manufacturing industries destroyed and we have the word of the Brtiish Government that "unless more assistance is forthcoming nundreds of thousands of Belgians must starve."
THE WEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 7 May 1915
THE WEATHER. The weather is cold and dry. Even a little rain would be most useful to both pastoral and agricultural in terests. Grass is fairly good within wirenetted areas, but on land expos ed to the depredations of rabbits the herbage is scanty, and stock is likely to suffer even under favorable conditions during the winter on all such lands.
