Residing on a Park. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
Residing on a Park. The Quarter Sessions at Lismore concluded yesterday. The appeal case-Charles Edward Darke (ap pellant) v. Woodburn Sliire Council (respondents) was heard and deter mined. This was an appeal against a conviction by the Coraki Bench of the appellant for residing on a park at Evans River. The appeal, with costs against the shire, was upheld, on the grounds that the only evidence identifying the boundaries of the al leged park was wrongfully admitted, and secondly that there was no evi dence of the dedication of the pam.

He mov ed,-"That in all future cases of typhoid the local officer should make an inspection of the premises, and if declared unfit for human habita tion, proceedings he immediately taken under the Health Act." The resolution was carried.
Reaching the Limit. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
Reaching the Limit. The question of striking the rate in many councils is a matter of seri ous moment, and any proposal to raise the rate, even in the £, causes much opposition. In fact, it is sometimes surprising that coun cils will hesitate to put on an extra farthing, even when they know what the increased revenue therefrom will do in the shape of extra works, and the money is badly needed. Many councils do not strike a rate accord ing to their necessities, but are satis fied with starving the roads. A les son should be learned from Wright ville municipal council, which has struck a general rate for this year of 14d in the & on the unimproved capital value, and a general rate of 2d in the £ on mines. In their es timates just published it is shown that the amount proposed to be ex pended is £625 14s 2d. There is nothing in hand available for such expenditure, and no other revenue is likely to be available. The unim proved capital of land other than mines, is £5609, and the...

GOVERNMENT WHEAT STANDARD. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 7 April 1911
GOVERNMENT WHEAT STANDARD. "A Broker' writes:-The Editor. Sir,-I have read your remarks un der the heading "A Government Wheat Standard," and note that Mr. Trefie proposes "turning up Jack, and playing tne Devil." Sensible traders ask, '"Why will not politicians (we have 110 statesman), and Government officials confine themselves to their own sphere of influence," i.e., the pro curation of trucks and protection from the weather when the wheat is actually entrusted to the government railways for transport. The farmer,' the miller, the shipper, the speculator wants nothing else but safe and quick despatch to consignment destination; and, when eur State Government the owners of the railways-fails to do this, how in the name of common sense can those trading in wheat ex pect to receive benefits in other ways from the meddlers above referred to.? I am not connected with the Cham-, her of Commerce, and whilst writers to the Press some time ago, described some of its members as old women, ...
DESTRUCTION OF NATIVE BIRDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 7 April 1911
DESTRUCTION OF NATIVE BIRDS. The letter written by "Phosphorus" in our issue of March 10, dealing with the question whether the poisoning of rabbits by phosj/iiorus also deci mated our bird life has evoked a good deal of contention, and the opinions have certainly been divided. In a letter we have received from a " Farmer" this contributor states : "From fifteen to twenty years ago we used to have a fairly good num ber of that granu bird, the native turkey. I have not seen one on this place for ten years. I would not swear that this is the result of poisoning, but nevertheless they are not to be seen now. I understand that a number of gentlemen in South Australia have induced the Govern ment to set apart a large area on Kangaroo Island as a reserve for native birds, the mallee hen in par ticular, as it Ts said that the foxes will soon wipe them out. It is to be hoped that the same gentlemen will turn their' attention to the native turkey." Subscribe for "The Land," and get your frie...

*ss Personal *ae Sir Samuel McCaughey, the Com monwealth's largest sheepowner, has done the thing handsomely. "Please find enclosed a cheque for £17,000." he wrote to the Taxation Commis sioner, "which I have pleasure in sending you for the tax on my pro perties." I am glad to do this much for a country which lias done so much for me. The rights and wrongs of the land-tax aside, this is a line spirit, to say the least of it. President Patten, having gone across country from Wellington to Muswellbrook, holding meetings on the way, and resusitating the branch at iuudgee, and forming others at different centres, has put some new vigour into the movement at Mait land is now en route for Gloucester and the Manning. Mr. Patten is put ting in excellent work, and a consid erable accession to the ranks of the Association is confidently looked for. While on the coast between the Hun ter and the Manning, he will be al most exclusively among the dairy farmers, the bulk of whom are al ready affi...
Notes of the Week The Commonwealth Purse. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 7 April 1911
' The Commonwealth Purse. . u y ' It is highly satisfactory, 110 doubt, , to learn tliat the Federal revenue for tlie ; nine months wlucli have passed exceeds Mr. Pish er's estimated sur plus for the full, twelve months by more than a whole million of money; The Federal Government will, thus have ample cash-to pay. r-Avith, provi ded their experiments are not too rash. The great revenue of the,Com monwealth is almost entirely harves ted at the Custom House. That is, the consumer within the Common wealth contributes this revenue, and, by Avay of compensation, pays an ever-increasing price for the commo dities he iises. That, the cost of liv ing should go up sympathetically with the Customs revenue, shows that there are two sides to the shield of prosperity, which Mr. Fisher holds aloft. The bouncing fiscal revenue suggests that the 25s per head re turned to . the States from, the Com monwealth is a frugal allowance. It also proves that the Land Tax of the Labour Party was a quite un ...

THE LAND. " Nations may battle and the world rock with revolution but the land will care for him who cares for it"" Telephone 1521 City. Telegrams, "The Land," Sydney Offices 3 Spring Street, Sydney. FRIDAY, APRIL 7, 1911. The Launch of the Warrego. The notable naval event which took place last Tuesday at Fitzrov Dock excited sympathetic vibrations throughout the whole Commonwealth. The occasion touches national pride for two reasons. ? One is that the Warrego completes our first unit of three destroyers, and the other is because the new war vessel is a- striking illustration of our industrial progress, for. although the parts were made in Great Britain, the Warrego was" built and made perfect in our own dockyard. The same workshop has now undertaken the serious work of entirely con structing three more destroyers and one second-class cruiser of the type now being built for us in England. Australia i? thus fairly launched upon the water, with all its future of dan ger and responsibi...

Poultry ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 7 April 1911
ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. "Poultry Farmer" writes: -What, in your opinion, is the best to give to pullets about five months ? old, to in duce them to begin laying before the winter is on us? I have nearly 500, ..and am, . of course, anxious to get. the earliest and best results. Force ? on with some kind of meat food (see paragraph on feeding in this is sue), use wheat, and not so much maize for the evening meal-the lat ter is too fattening, and, therefore, to be avoided for pullets coming on to lay. Substitute for wheat occa sionally an odd meal of short, thick oats, and give plenty of green food. S. T. J., Quirindi.-Yes; the birds have caught a cold, probably through the changeable weather. Cut up onions will almost always cure a cold, if given at once. If they have been suffering for any length of time give an occasional dose of cold and roup cure. The price of eggs this week has advanced considerably, owing, no doubt, to the cold snap we have ex perienced. We can see that the w...
