Unlawful Election of Mayor. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 7 April 1911
Unlawful Election of Mayor. A correspondent from Hyde desires to know if the proceedings of the council during the time the present mayor occupied the chair, before he was appointed by the Governor, are unlawful. We presume that our correspondent refers to the period from and after he was elected on the occasion of the returning officer presiding at the council meeting for the election of Mayor until the proclamation, of the Governor. If this is so, then we would say certainly not. Provision is made in the Act for any such cases, in section 200, which says:-r-_ "No proceedings of a council, or a commitee thereof, or of any person acting as mayor, president, alderman, or councillor, shall be invalidated by reason of any defect in the appoint ment or election, or of any disquali fication of any member of the council or of any such person, or by reason of there being any vacancy in the council or committee at the time of such proceedings." So it will, there fore be seen that all the ac...
Sunday Trading. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 7 April 1911
Sunday Irading. A correspondent asks:-"Would an alderman be in order in moving a resolution at a council meeting, to draw the'attention of the police" to 1 the fact that Sunday trading is car ried on in the area? While admitting that councils do many things which are not in strict .order-apart from quarrelling-but which they, as representatives of the people, feel they are justified in deal ing with, the motion referred to would not be in order, according to law. That is our opinion, based; chiefly on clause 47 of Ordinance No. 1, which is headed "Acts of Disorder," and reads as follows:-"Any alder man who at any meeting of the coun cil or of any committee commits a breach of any ordinance, or who moves, or attempts to move any motion or amendment embodying any matter beyond the legal jurisdiction of the council or committee . . . shall be guilty of disorder." Such a motion as that referred to by our cor respondent is certainly "beyond the legal jurisdiction of the council."
A Mayor Resigns. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 7 April 1911
A Mayor Resigns. The Mayor of Erslcineville (Aid. Eobinson) presided at last meeting of the council, when a motion was sub mitted, "That on and aft"c 20th March, the minimum wage of all labourers employed by the council be Is per hour, equal to 8s per day." In answer to Aid. Schuler, the Mayor said that at the present time the council only employed two labour ers, one at 7s per day, and the other at Ss. The Mayor said that if the council fixed a standard wage, it must be presumed that one work man was as good as another, and, if necessary, they must be prepared to change places. If one did scavenger's work, and the other worked with a pick and shovel, and both were paid the same wages, they must be able to do each outer's work. Now, in open council, lie could not say just what he would like to say, but if the council was going to act the part of dry nurse, he knew what course he would take. The Mayor put the mo tion, and declared it carried. He then said that for conscientious rea s...
Proclaiming a City. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 7 April 1911
Proclaiming a City. A. W. (Albury) asks:-"What steps have to be taken in order to have a place proclaimed a city?" Before the advent of the Local Government Act, there was no direc tion given in the Municipalities Act on this subject, and it was generally understood that any place which con tained an episcopal cathedral would be called a city; but now the L.G. Act gives definite instructions as to how a municipality may be constitu ted a city. The Governor may pro claim a city any municipality which lias during the preceding five muni cipal years had an average population of at least twenty thousand persons, and during the same period an ave rage gross municipal revenue from all sources of at least £20,000, and is an independent centre of population, and is not a suburb, whether residential, industrial, commercial, or maritime, of any other municipality or centre of population. This could be done by the Governor, on his own initiative, that is to say, after representation had been m...

Boundary Works. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911
Boundary Works. Tlie following is from a report of the -Glen Innes Council's last meet ing:-"With reference to the claim made by tlie Shire Council for a pro portion of amount expended 011 the creek crossing on the Emmaville road, it is recommended that they be in formed that, as the provisions of Ordinance Xo. 20 have not been com plied with, and the necessary autho rity given for the expenditure, 210 re commendations can be made." It therefore behoves councils which are about to carry out any boundary works, and expect tlie adjoining coun cil to share in the cost, to strictly follow the procedure laid down in section 10G of the Act, and clauses 2 and 10 of the Ordinances.
Our Wool Clip. SOME FEATURES OF THE SEASON. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911
Our Wool Clip. SOME FEATURES OF THE SEASON. As usual, the annual wool reviev published by YVinchcombe, Carson, Ltd., is interesting, and comprehen sive. After dealing with the growth and general quality of the clip, which factors are well known to our read ers, the report deals with the re quirements of buyers and the wools which have met with the most in quiry. The season was remarkable for the run upon; superfine merinos. From start to finish the cry was fineness. Quite a number of unattractive,, heavy-conditioned clips realised ex treme prices simply because tliey were sufficiently fine in the hair ttt suit the special demand. Clothing, weft and combing wools all sold ex ceptionally well if they complied with the imperative condition of superfint quality. Short fuzzy crossbreds of 110 character are rio« wanted; Gobd length is necessary, and all the, quali ties from the strongest to the finest find a ready market. The finer the quality, the higher the price. The, demanu for crossb...

Dalgety & Co.'s Stand. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911
Dalgety & Co.'s Stand. The country visitor to the Royal Agricultural Show will lie glad to see the stand of a firm which lie knows thoroughly, and can rely up on as dealing only in the best class of goods. In none of their departments have Messrs.

The Royal Show. PRODUCERS' GREAT CARNIVAL. Beats all Records. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911
The Royal Show. - PRODUCERS' GREAT CARNIVAL. Beats all Records. For several years past each succeed 1 ing exhibition on the Royal Agricul tural Society's Show-ground has had some special feature to mark the progress of one of Sydney's most popular institutions, and each year just as consistently shows that there is no approach to finality. The de mands of the public are all the time a little ahead of the Society's coura geous efforts to catch up to them, and the outstanding lesson from each newly added feature for the accom modation of the public, and for faci litating the work the society is charged with, is that a lot more still remains to be done. This year's improvements may, per haps be thought sufficient to give the Society breathing time for a couple of years or more, seeing that they are more extensive than those of previous years, including, not only ? the erection of a liuge grandstand and offices, additional and very commodi ous cattle sheds, but the enlargement of the gr...
THE F.A.Q. STANDARD. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911
THE F.A.Q. STANDARD. " Grower" (I-Ienty).-It is true that at the present stage of the wheat industry shippers are averse to a dual standard of wheat qualities. But their objection arises chieiiy from the circumstance that there is not as yet a sufficient volume of the supe rior wheats grown to make a dual standard workable. For the present, (therefore, the grower of extra ..prime wheat (either particularly clean, plump, and even samples of the old or of the new strong-floured varieties) has to look for his premium from the local milling trade-and unless the millers are exceptionally full up they will generally give something over -shipping values for grain of superior .quality. It is to be remembered, jhowever, that British millers have in -formed the Agent-General that if .growers would make a special feature ?of such varieties as Bobs, Jade, Bun yip, Comeback, and one or two others, .'and could put these varieties on the English market without admixture of .'less valuable sorts, a...
The Clyde Engineering Co., Ltd. AT SYDNEY SHOW EASTER, 1911. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911
Tbe AT SYDNEY SHOW EASTER, 1911. About the centre of the main pay i lion a comprehensive group of ehaff cutters in motion includes a double bagger " Myee/' a modification of tne company's well-known " Myee" single bagger, -.this new design will at once appeal to users who experience the difficulty of keeping bags quickly clianged when a machine is running full. The single bagger "Myee K2," also shown, is an established favour ite for the low power required to drive it. The " Kalos" bagger is in evidence, connected to a " Kl" cutter -a combination effective for 20 tons per day as a stationary plant. The " K2" cutter, with a Farmer's ele vator" attached, is also to be seen. This plant has demonstrated its use fulness in filling bags without the labour incident to the old system of having a hole in the floor and a man in it. Right alongside is the " Rex:; cutter, shown for the first time last Easter. It is a fine, strong, wood framed two-knife cutter, with a double-bagging elevator, an...
AN OLD-TIME ENSILAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911
AN OLD-TIME ENSILAGE. if. E. M. (Quirindi): The informa tion respecting your experiment with a fodder stack is very interesting. It reminds us of a method which used to be in v.ogue in the old country many years ago-a method which might be worth a simple trial in this country. This ancient procedure was to stack up green, fresli-cut stuff of any kind with intermediate layers of dry .straw. It was found that if the layers of greenstuff' were not too thick-say Gin. before compression .it did not heat or grow mouldy ; while at the same time it gave much of its taste and flavour to the intermediate layers of strain. Oat ptraw was naturally found the best for the purpose, but wheat and barley .straw were also found successful where the mixture was subsequently chaffed. Clover or similar succulent stuff' was favoured before grass, but any green crop would do. It should hot be wet but allowed to wilt be fore carting, though even then it is heavy for its bulk. A stack of straw must be ready...
THE SHIRES. Application to Wages Board. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911
THE SHIRES. Application to Wages Board. At the sitting of the Wages Board appointed to deal "\vitu the claims by the Railway Workers and General Labourers' Association, oil Friday last, Mr. J. W. Maund, solicitor to the Shires' Association of N.S.W., made application for exemption of the sliires from any award that might be made. In support of the application, Mr. Maund urged. the dissimilarity of interests as between the shire councils and general con tractors, and also referred to the very short notice that had been given to shires of their inclusion in the scope of the award. Mr. Kelynack, who appeared on behalf of various railway contractors, strongly opposed the claim of the shires for exemption. Mr. Maund also made objection to the constitution of the board,, and strongly urged that if the claim for exemption was not granted, that the board should be reconstituted, so.as to allow of direct representation of the shires on the board, as the inter est of shires could not be prope...
COMPENSATION FOR BLIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911
COMPENSATION FOR BLIGHT. At Orange the question of . com pensation has arisen in connection, with the destruction of a grower's patch of blighted potatoes. Mr. Trefle, Hon. Minister for Agriculture, naturally declined .to sanction. ^com pensation to tlie ow)ier. Tt is a case'. in which the individual interest-.has: to give place to that of the public. No Government could adopt the prin ciple of 'compensating everybody-., who meets with a misfortune. In tnc case of Irish blight, who is going to take the trouble to fight it if lie can rely on a Government to make up to him any loss it may bringupon him ? The Minister will destroy the in- , fected patch if the owner be willing to let liim do so without compensa tion, but this suggests that in the absence of permission the blighted field is to remain to do what niiscliiefv it may. Surely such a position can not commend itself to the Minister or his officers, to whom power should be given to take all necessary steps for the protection of...
When the Country Comes to Town. A CENTRAL MEETING PLACE. WHY NOT A CLUB? [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911
£3 . Q When the Country Comes to Town. A CENTRAL MEETING PLACE, _ WHY NOX A CLUB? 'Is . v ... m Why not a Country Club ? This question is asked and ans wered by an executive officer of the Farmers and Settlers' Association, Mr. G. J. Gilmour. And why not, inaeed ? "I have had the idea for some time," said Mr. Gilmour to a repre sentative ? of "The Land/' "and I think the present is a convenient time to bring it prominently to the attention of countrymen in general. .Just consider a moment ! Xearly .very other importarft section of the . community has its club. or meeting place. The man on the land-if we except for the moment a proportion of the larger pastoralists who are in frequent contact with the city-has no common meeting place in Sydney, and of all others he needs such a meeting place most.
