THE LAND QUESTION. To the Editor, "The Farmer and Settler." [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 30 May 1906
THE LAND QUESTION. To the Editor, 'The Farmer and Settler.' - Sir,-1— Reports of debates in committee and conventions of the Farmers' and Set tlers' Association and correspondence in your paper show that while a majority are aware of the baneful effects of large es tates, there is acute diversity of opinion in regard to the means by which *he smaller men — the majority of the members of the Association — should be enabled to hold their own. 1 therefore hope you will question in a fashion that may help to remove some prejudices. [Here our correspondent quotes ex tensively from ancient histwry to prove that 'the complaint aainst the crushing power of the owners of large estates is not a new one.'' lie then proceeds to refer to the efforts which have of late years been made to improve the condi tions of our public life, and emphasises the fact that the unique medley of land ' laws has failed to settle the people on the land, either through being too elas 1 * tic or unnecessarily restri...
AWAY WITH THE P.P. BOARDS To the Editor, "The Farmer and Settler." [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 30 May 1906
AWAY WITH THE P.P. BOARDS! To the Editor, 'The Farmer and Settler.' Sir,— Having, with others, read in your issue of the iSth inst. the article re the P.P. Act (inoperative and vexatious) by 'L.C.,' we herewith beg to endorse everything he has advanced, and also ask if the time is not ripe for concerted and ? ^ _„*?,*,, «,* +ua r\r-r+ nf nil branches of the Farmers' and Settlers' Associa tion to R-et the P.P. Act abolished? The way the plague of rabbits is in creasing all over New South Wales is proof of the utter inefficiency of the Act. The incidence of the inspection is most unequal and unjust. If the money it costs to run the P.P. Boards was distrib uted in the shape of a bonus to rabbit catchers where the price of skins is low, it would mean a more equitable division of the money. ? , Another phase of the matter is that the Minister for Lands proposes to hand over to the P.P. Boards the distribution of the wire netting to settlers. This is a most serious matter, and ought io en...
LANDS INQUIRY REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 30 May 1906
LANDS INQUIRY REPORT. ? Within the next few days Mr. Justice Owen will present to his Excellency the Governor an interim report of the Royal Commission on the inquiry into matters affecting the administration of the De partment of Lands. The report will be a bulky document of probably 400 pages of typewritten matter, and it will be accom panied by the evidence, already in printj covering about 1200 pages. The neces sity for furnishing an interim report has been occasioned by several considerations. A number of minor matters will probably be left over for the final report, and in any case the Commission has not closed, and it may be deemed necessary to take further evidence. Another consideration is that certain matters are sub judice in connection with the charges against \YV N. Willis, M'Nair, and Hoskins, and it ? will probably be found that several phases of different questions have been left over for a future report. At the same time the report, which will probably reach his Exc...
WHEAT LAND AVAILABLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 30 May 1906
WHEAT LAND AVAILABLE. Mr. Robert Gibson writes as .follows : — Seeing there is so much inquiry for land for selection, I beg to draw attention to the large area available in the Hillston land district. There arc nearly Soo,ooo acres of country suitable for mixed farm ing and grazing at present unoccupied and a menace to the adjoining settlers through the rabbits. A railway to Hillston from any of the existing lines would cause all this land to be taken up. To show the capabilities for wheat sowing, over 16,000 acres of land were under cultiva tion last year in the Gunbar and Hillston district, besides a large area in the Whit ton district. All averaged three bags per acre. Most of these farmers have strug gled on for the past 15 years, relying on getting a railway to get their produce to market. At the present time about 24,000 bags of wheat are stacked on the farms, teams being unobtainable for carting to the railway. About one-third of this is already destroyed or valueless throug...

SETTLERS FOR N.S.W. 131 HAVE LEFT ENGLAND. Bringing £20,146 in Capital. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 30 May 1906
SETTLERS FOR N.S.W. 131 HAVE LEFT ENGLAND. Bringing £20,146 in Capital. In a letter received by the Premier from Mr. Coghlan, the Agent-General, the prospect of getting a desirable class of immigrants from the agriculturists of the Old Country are very hopefully spoken of. He remarks : — 'The concessions made by the shipping companies are very substantial, in fact, on the ,£2 1 two-berth cabin a concession of X)i is uiituc xoi uvuiy x-4 aoowuu uy 111c Government. With regard to this ques tion, I should like to say that we are in communication with a number of farmers, who have expressed their intention of go ing out to New South Wales, but several of them have to give notice to their land lords that they will quit at a certain date. Some of them have to give as much as n year's notice, while others have in'timated that they have given notice to leave after Michaelmas, after -which they will pro ceed to New South Wales. We have clone an immense amount of preparatory work, which has t...
A FAMILY MATTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 30 May 1906
A FAMILY MATTER. At the Land Court in Sydney last week, William George Cox appealed against the decision of the local land board in respect '*» of his application for permission to fulfil the condition of residence attaching to his c.p. Nos. 99-20 and 1903-3, and c.l. 29,146, Molong, by residence on his father's c.p. 96-12, Wellington. The local land board refused the application on the ground that the applicant was a married man, aged 29 years. In giving the Court's decision the Presi dent remarked that though the Court did not decide the question whether anyone, of any age, in any circumstances, should be permitted to break up his establish ment, and carry out the residence on the land of a member of the family, they were inclined to think that the circumstances, particularly having regard to the state of health of the appellant's wife, justified the matter being looked at 'somewhat generously.' The case would be remitted back to the board with a view to the re quired consent bein...
