THE INTRODUCTION OF A RABBIT DISEASE. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 February 1906
THE INTRODUCTION OF A RABBIT DISEASE. By A.L.P.C. Much has been written about the ad visableness or otherwise of introducing a disease among- rabbits in this State, and many, and sometimes curious, are the arguments used in opposition to the contemplated experiments by Mr. Dan zys. many arguments in favor of the intro — -*w*-w»* *--. u *t*uvugw \\ niy^n WUUiU SCI V C to keep the lively rodent in check, and only one against it. That one, I admit, is deserving of the maturest considera tion. Of course, I allude to the possi bility of the disease spreading to other animals, jar even to humans. The ex periments7'1however, could be so surroun ded by safeguards as to reduce the dan g-er to infinitesimal proportions.' I was discussing this matter with a friend the other day. His knowledge of the subject, according to my ideas, was not extensive, and he seemed to have only a limited notion of the gigantic na ture of the first mortgage which the rab bit holds on our future clips of wool and ...
RE-APPRAISEMENT VALUES. (Extracts from a C.P. Inspctor's Report to the Premier.) [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 February 1906
RE-APPRAISEMENT VALUES. (Extracts from a C.P. Inspector's Report to the Premier.) ' I have studied the effect of the ad ministration of this Act, and have con cluded that the cause of so much dissatis faction is due to no provision being made for uniform valuation. All the argument before Land Boards hinges on what can be made by the individual off the land after deducting cost of living, and other expenses. . . . mere is one simple way, in my opinion, to arrive at a fair rental value, and that is on its fair carrying cap acity, if grazing land, and its productive ness if agricultural. This provision is found in the Western Lands Act — rental value being fixed at a maximum of 7c!. per sheep; 7d., gel., 1/-, or 1/6 per sheep for grazing is the amount that pastoralists reckon it is worth to pay for grazing sheep per head per annum, and as they have worked out the whole cost of stock, labour, improvements, etc., these are mat ters that appraisers need not be expected to give expert evi...
LAND ADMINISTRATION BY COMMISSION. II. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 February 1906
LAND ADMINISTRATION BY COMMISSION. II. By E.B. The question of whether the laws were in themselves so intrinsically bad that no effort in the direction of vigorous and heroic administration, the trend of which would always be strongly in favour of subordinating the interests of the large to those of the smaller holders, would still have left a great deal to be desired, need not enter too prominently into this discussion. For this just and sufficient icaauu, (.net 1 wiui me uicuciicu at nanu tu work on — which we all know was suffi ciently effective to promote a large amount of permanent settlement — the whole trend of the administration for years was in the direction of discourag ing settlement by all the various devices which interested parties could suggest and a pliable and obliging admininstra tion could carry into effect. Among the various anomalies, we had the following : — Improvement purchases which in many cases had no improve ments, and in the majority of cases no useful i...

Contributed Articles, &c. (Continued). IRRIGATION. II. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 February 1906
Contributed Articles. &c. (Continued), IRRIGATION. II. (By Robert Gibson, Hay.) The mistaken conception is sometimes held by residents in humid districts that aridity implies desert conditions, the ab sence of vegetation, and the existence of naked rocks and sand glistening- in the brilliant sunshine. In the United States of America the area of land which should be classed as desert is relatively small, and only comprises about 7 per cent, of the total area. The remainder of the arid mrrinnc ic rrw'PVPr] with n mnrfi fir ifiSS scanty vegetation of some value to man kind. It is at once apparent how closely this State of New South Wales approaches the United States. In neither of them can the desert conditions be compared in character and extent to those in Africa. In the United States the open range of the arid regions is generally stated to be capable of supporting a cow for every 20 or 30 acres ; the same land when watered and put in lucerne will feed ten times as many. The...
RE-APPRAISEMENT. I. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 February 1906
RE-APPRAISEMENT. I. By L.C. Of all the problems awaiting solution by the rulers in this1 State the one under this heading stands pre-eminent— in fact/ upon it hinges the whole question of Leasehold versus Freehold, which is puzzling the wisest statesmen;, not only here, but in many parts of the Old World, and par ticuiany at, me. present time in uiai pio ' gressive little spot from which our ?Perpet- ual Leasing System has been borrowed, New Zealand. If one assumes that appraisement and re-appraisement on the basis of- unim proved values can be brought about with even an ordinary feeling of satisfaction to the Crown on the one part and to the tenant on the other, then unquestionably leasehold is the mode that should be adopted ; but we know from bitter exper ience that this idea, so simple in theory, but so unworkable in practice, is doomed to failure and disappointment all along the line. No doubt, to many anxious, well-meaning persons, having little prac tical knowledge, arid who ...
ALIENATION OF CROWN LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 February 1906
ALIENATION OF CROWN LANDS. Some few months ago it was notified in the 'Gazette' where a block of 517$ acres of Crown Lands in the Parish of Curra bunganung, County of Urana, on the Goree Holding, was to be submitted to public auction at Deniliquin on Tuesday, 23rd January, 1906. The land is situated on the western side of the holding, being one or tne many isolated blocks on tne holdings throughout Riverina, which our paternal Government thinks that the only way to get them off their hands is by way of auction, consequently, in nearly every 'Gazette' taken up are to be found noti fications of these sales. A little con sideration on the part of the authorities surely should show them a more satisfac tory way of dealing with them, viz., by the way of exchange, which would be more in the interests of all parties. It is an easy matter for them to find out the total area on each separate holding 'n Riverina of these insular blocks, large and small, in the first place, and having that inf...
ABOLITION OF INTEREST. To the Editor, "Farmer and Settler." [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 February 1906
ABOLITION OF INTEREST. To the Editor, 'Farmer and Settler.' Sir, — The subject of the abolition of in terest has been before the public of this country for many years. Many and var ied have been the opinions expressed in relation to the justice of its retention; but after all there, can only be one con clusion arrived at, and that is that it is ivrong, and has been proved to be wrong by men who have had every opportunity of judging. It is a strange thing that in this, the mother State of the Common wealth, it alone has an existence. When nur lpcrisint-nrs in thp nnst nut on the. K per cent interest on the unpaid balance, they no doubt thought they were doing it in the best interests of the people ; but as time rolled. on the wrong was dis covered so far as to reduce the interest to 4 per cent in 1884. This was an admis sion that it was oppressive. Through -the strenuous fighting of the Farmers', and Settlers' Association, it was still further reduced, in 1903, to t\ per cent, and th...

THE NOWRANIE BALLOT. JERILDERIE, Friday. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 February 1906
THE NOWRANIE BALLOT. JERILDERIK Friday. Dissatisfaction is expressed here at the manner the ballot was conducted at Urana over the Nowranie Reserves. The appli cants, who numbered 450, were summon ed to attend at Urana on February 8. The ballot then commenced in alphabetical order, those far down on the list being compenea to wan ror several aays, incur ring expense. Farmers' sons, born and reared in the district, were indiscriminate ly disallowed to go to the ballot. A strong feeling is expressed against the powers vested in the Board, and that the Minister should be requested to curtail the Board's powers re appeals against their disallowance. The Farmers' Union will meet to-morrow to discuss the matter. 'Pleased we are to have our own news paper at last. All members will recog nise its importance ... a sure index of the growth of the Association.' — Branch Secretary M. Ryall, Red Range.

SEND-OFF TO MR. J. ROYLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 February 1906
SEND-OFF TO MR. J. ROYLE. A larg-e number of representative ex porters, merchants, and shipping1 people on Saturday afternoon entertained, at a harbour picnic Mr. J. Royle, manager of the Wholesale Co-operative Society, Lim ited, prior to his departure for London by the R.M.S. Moldavia. Amongst those present were — Senator Gray, Messrs. E. W. O'Sullivan, M.L.A., M. O'Riordan (Mayor of Alexandria), L. Mitchell (China Traders' Insurance Company), T. Gray (Gray Brothers, Limited), Morrison iv^ucisiai r aimers ^o-opeiauve ouciciy;, Henry Fisher, George Shirley, T. I. Campbell (Farmers' and Settlers' Asso ciation), Jas.

After a pleasant cruise round, a halt was called at the head of Middle Harbor, where the Chairman (Mr. Henry Fisher) opened proceedings proper by proposing the toast of 'The King.' He then referred in eulogistic terms to Mr. Royle' s sterling qualities, and called upon Senator Gray to propose the health of Mr. and Mrs. Rovle. In pr...
A FARMER'S SHEEP-SHEARING MACHINE. "The Little Wonder." [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 February 1906
A FARMER'S SHEEP-SHEARING MACHINE. 'The Little Wonder.' We move in an age of rapid mechanical progress, and there is no doubt that the man on the land who makes use of the latest contrivances in carrying on his op erations is going to do better than the man who does not. Indeed, up-to-date methods are becoming necessary for self preservation. The sheep-shearing ma chine seemed a wonderful thing when it was introduced to Australia. Now, it is taken almost as a matter of course. Soon every well-regulated station will have its well-designed shearing shed fitted with machinery tor relieving the sheep of their wool, and it is a question whether the old-time hand shears will not, within a comparatively brief period, be quite a thing of the past. For now we have a specially-designed machine suitable for. the farmer, who has only 500 or 1000 sheep to deal with. It is being placed on the market by the Cooper Sheep-shearing Machine Proprietary, Ltd., and is well called 'The Little Wonder.' It...

THE FIRE-SWEPT COUNTRY. The Secretary of North Condobolin and Derriwong Branch (Mr. E. N. Dunne) writes under date 7th instant : — 'The fact is everybody is burnt to a cinder, and all that remains of our fair prospects of a month ago is ashes ! 'On this account all is chaos and con fusion. Fences are burnt in all directions, and stock are roaming fancy free. My Branch, therefore, is quite out of gear, and until fences are patched up, likely to remain so. 'I have not time at present to do either canvassing or writing for the paper. In fact, I haven't time (nor desire) to pray; nothing only swear, and very little time for that. In a few weeks' time Associa tion matters will receive due attention. Until then, adieu!'
