Katoomba and Leura Reserves. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 7 April 1911
Katoomba and Leura Reserves. A lengthy discussion took place in Katoomba Council on a motion by the Mayor,-"That this municipal ! council take over the trusteeship of; the Katoomba, Leura, and Banksea : Park reserves, providing that the pre sent trustees resign." The Mayor said he considered it one of the most 1 important questions that had been before the council. A grant of £230 . per annum had been made by the Go vernment" for many years, and he- . thought they might get the allow- 1 ance increased. Some of the alder- . men were of opinion that the mat- ' ter should be postponed and care fully considered. The motion was. 1 however, put and carried. There is- i no doubt the work can be much more satisfactorily performed by the coun cil as trustees.

=£0== c The Reader's View iU^ \ZJ £ THE REFERENDA PROPOSALS. The Editor. Sir,-The campaign for and against the referenda proposals is now fairly before the public, and ?we have the advantage of seeing Avhat some of our greatest present-day thinkers have to say on a matter ?which, not only affects the welfare of the States, but our people as well. And before making any avowed de claration in favour of the extensive alterations in the Constitution, where by the States would be almost com pletely deprived of the right to regu late their own internal affairs, it would certainly be good, sound busi ness on the part of the electors to think the matter out for themselves in a common-sense mariner, before conceding these powers to the Com monwealth without first going too thoroughly into the pros and cons of the case in its various bearings, and its applicability as a means of na tional advancement. The trend of thought, for some time past, has been in favour of decentralisation, as the onl...

AGENTS' REPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 7 April 1911
AGENTS' REPORTS. Dalgety and Co., Ltd., report:-The brisk market which has been in force at the Sydney sales during the past week speaks volumes for the sound ness of European trade at the present time, and reveals very clearly the absence of a valid reason for the weakness in the early part of the New Year. As month after month goes past, it is more than ever evi dent that the English writers' esti mates of the current clip were most unjustifiable. Their forecasts being now totally discredited, it is to be hoped that the London authorities will, in iuture, leave the Australian news to those at this end, who are in a position to supply reliable details. The shipments of wool from New South Wales since July 1, have amounted to 839,944 bales, as against 836,121 bales for the corresponding period last year, and the shipments from the Commonwealth have amoun ted to 1,782,032 bales, as compared with 1,745,640 bales last season. The increase in exports is now down to 12,285 bales, with no...
The Market Mirror WOOL. General Rise in Values. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 7 April 1911
=D Ck The Market Mirror WOOL. 3 General Rise in Values. After a spell of about live weeks, the Sydney wool market emerged once more into the activity of auction sales. The catalogues submitted dur ing the week have amounted to over 23,000 bales, being considerably heavi er than is usual at so late a period of the year. The selection of the wools offered was also higher than usual, including some clips shown in November and December, which, ow ing to the slack condition of the mar ket at the commencement of this year, had been held over. At the time, doubtless, the grower, was disappoint ed, but the delay has proved really a blessing in disguise, for the market at this week's auctions showed con siderable improvement, as compared with the rates ruling at the termina tion of the weekly series on March 2. Generally speaking, it may be said that prices now are fully 5 per cent, higher than they were at that time. Of course, super greasy wools were practically absent at this week's sales...

BRADFORD WOOL "BEARS." [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 7 April 1911
BRADFORD WOOL " BEARS." " Wool Expert" writes :-Mr. El liott .. J. Carter, iri . a > recent -is^ sue, is. evidently under 'the impres sion .that the Bradford wool " bears" / largely control wool prices. . This is - a mistake, for whatever influence Bradford may have liad in the wool market in previous years it gradually . lost as the wool sales in Australia increased. For years the combers there fought the foreign buyers in its efforts to prevent a great rise in tops, and they kept stocks as low as possible, not always with profit to themselves. The greatest blessing to the Australian grower came with the advent of the foreign buyers out here, and seeing that they shipped direct to the manufacturers, created dismay and anger to the Bradford men. They " egged on' 'the London wool brokers in their efforts to retain as much as possible of the London trade, but it was useless, and whilst Bradford is still the leading wool centre of the United Kingdom, its in fluence on the worlds woo...
