Influence on Production of Closer Settlement. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 3 June 1915

Influence on Production , of Gloser Settlement. Tt is nil incontrovertible fact that woolgrowing has been the backbone of Australia's growth aud prosperity and the pastoralists who pioneered a nil l.-ackcd their faith in the coun try'5 future witli honest toil and en terprise have made the Common wealth what it is to-day. Neverthe less the march of time has decreed that in the sheepraising industry, as in wheat growing, the necessity for improved methods and standards should manifest themselves- . As closer settlement has come and made its impression on the produc tion of the country, land lias become dearer, consequently the grazier has had to alter and improve his meth ods in order to keep pace with the risen value of land. With sparse population the old-time methods would have been good enough, and little or no effort would have been made to have obtained the best pos sible production from the country. Under the smaller holdings regime, however, greater production is neces sary a...

If The War Stopped To-day [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 3 June 1915

StopptMl To-day One of the loading British jour nals says that if the war stopped today history would record a sig nal German victory and a decisive Britsh defeat. This statement is roundly challenged by Dr. Fitch ett, tho editor of "Life", in the .lime issue of that excellent Aus tralasian magazine. In this most graphic style, and with that keen ness of insight which character ises his writings on the war he points out the exact reverse to he the case. "Great; Britain," Dr. Fitchett writes, "has suffered no defeat; the foot of the invader has not touched her soil. Pier command of tho sea is absolute. She lias created in a few brief months an army of Continental scale and of at least, Continental quality. Hut. on the other hand, what a cata logue of failures makes up the story of'Germany! Her whole plan of the war lias been wrecked. Tho 'march to Paris' failed: the swing eastward of victorious armies, which was to overwhelm Kussia, has not taken place. Ger many has tried to reach Pa...

Punchisms. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 3 June 1915

I | Puncliisms. I A Few quest ious have occupied so much time in the federal Par liament as that of sugar. It fairly bristles with difficult points uvul there lire so many aspects from which it can be reviewed that members are chary of touch ing it at all. At the present tune the local production is said to be unequal to local requirements, and there is a strong move to have the import duty of £6 a ton re moved. This is oackert up by Ministers representing most-^ of the State Governments. But Customs Minister Tudor is slow to move in the direction the\ desire. In this attitude, he is supported hv some of the sugar growing interests. The proposal put before him by'Attorney-Gene ral Hall of N.S.W. is that the duty should be suspended tor about six weeks to tide ovei the time between the last sugar sea son and the nvw crop. Una would enable sugar to be impoitcd from Java, and those in favor of this course aver that the retail price, would thus be kept down. Sugar growers aro accused ot...

Football. DOOKIE COLLEGE v. DOOKIE. A friendly game was played on Saturday afternoon last, when the College team came in and met the locals on their own ground. The game for the first quarter promised to be an interesting one, and when the bell went Dookie had scored 2 goals 2 behinds to 1 goal 2. After that, though, the Dookie men began to show signs of lack of training, while the College team forced the pace and 'worked system- atically, finally inflicting a defeat on the locals by 12.7 to 3.3. The match was umpired' by Mr Mc- Lennan. Tho ground should improve as the new grass comes along, and in its present state does not seriously injure anyone coming a " cropper," as others than players could testify. A meeting of tho Dookie Football Club was held at the Gladstone Hotel on Thursday, 27th May, at which were present-Messrs P. W. Ryan (in the chair), P. D. Ryan, B. Moylan, P. F. Lynch, A.
