OUTSIDE IMPRESSIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 6 June 1906

OUTSIDE IMPRESSIONS. Nothing could afford better proof of the fact that our Association is exerting1 a powerful influence through out the State than the prominence which is being given to its proccc 1 ings by metropolitan and country newspapers. In some of the latter a large amount of space is occasionally devoted to Branch meetings and trans actions, while in the former almost every branch meeting is briefly chro nicled in tho telegraphic columns, and trcqucnt comments appear tnere upon, generally of a favorable charac ter. Amongst the latter the following appeared in a recent issue of the 'S. M. Herald' : — 'If the Farmers' and Settlers' Association steers clear of a political split its immediate future should be very bright. The member ship of branches is increasing steadi ly. The record is held by Trangie with 147, and many other centres arc close up. Narromine affords an in stance of rapid growth. The branch has been in existence for some years, but about twelve months ago it h...

The Water Problem IRRIGATION EXPERIMENTS. WARNING TO HASTEN SLOWLY. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 6 June 1906

The Water Problem IRRIGATION EXPERIMENTS. WARNING TO HASTEN SLOWLY. A warning note was uttered at a meeting of the engineering section of the Royal Society of New South Wales concerning irrigation. While the en gineers present were unanimous that irrigation is necessary for the proper development of Australia, the advice was thrown out that the first experi ments should be on a modest scale. The Northern Murrumbidgce scheme will involve an expenditure of over ,£1,000,000, and it aims at the settle ment of village communities on 560 square miles of country between Nar randcra and Gunbar, that is at pres ent practically unoccupied. The presi dent of the Water and Sewerage Board (Mr. T. W. Kcelc) said :— 'Seeing that irrigation is a new industry in tins country, it seems to me that caution should be exercised before launching out extensively in costly works inland, where, in addition to the struggles for existence while gaining his experi ences, the irrigationist would be han dicapped ...

OLLA PODRIDA. Popular Opinion of Federation. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 6 June 1906

p— -. QUA PODRIDA. ^ Popular Opinion of Federation. Few of the Australian electors could reasonably be charged with holding the view that our Federal Legislature is a popular institution. Indeed, that opinion is shared by few outside the House itself, and it is pathetic to ob serve the repeated cissuranccs of Fed eral politicians that the electors are really given a quid pro quo for their money. What is much more likely to prove effective than such assurances is a departmental desire to afford every reasonable postal and telephonic fa cility to resident? in country districts. This may appear a little thing, but it is a well-known fact that, with the nvi-t*n(i*o nlprtnr n crnnri ((vr»nrlc nnrl bridges' member is the first consider ation when the time of election conies round ; and alongside this factor, po litical principle or opinion goes for very little. By the way, it is largely by the re cognition of this fact, and the conse quent devotion of its members to ' roads and bridges' w...

THE CONCLUSIONS. JUDGE OWEN CONCLUDES HIS REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 6 June 1906

THE CONCLUSIONS. JUDGE OWEN CONCLUDES HIS REPORT. I have reported at length on the var ious matters referred to me, and those which arose out of them, but it may be desirable to state succinctly some of the more important conclusions at which I have arrived. (1) That of the sums received by Mr. Close, .as land agent, in respect of matters then being dealt with by the Minister for Lands, Mr. Crick ac cepted one-half; but that no officer of the department received any money from Mr. Close. (--/ mm ii is .ucsirauic to place tne administration of the Lands Depart ment in the hands of a Board of Commissioners in order to free it from political influence. (3) That land agents should be regis tered and placed under the control of the Land Appeal Court. (4) That in the purchase of the Myall Creek estate, the evidence before me showed that the Government made a very reasonable bargain, and pur chased it at a price fairly arrived at between the parties, and tha't the ac tion tif the Governmen...

THE ASSOCIATION'S WORK. COMPLIMENTS FROM THE JUDGE. 'It was hoped that the public,' says the report, 'in response to whose de mand this extension has been granted, would have afforded assistance in this respect ; but the result of an appeal to those who set rumours of malpractices afloat was disappointing, with the ex ception of the willing aid given by cer tain officials and other members of the Farmers' and Settlers' Association, to whom the Commission is greatly in debted. 'Most of the matters requiring in vestigation were brought to light through the methods followed by my secretary (J. W. H. Houston), for which I take full responsibility.'

DISPOSAL OF THE FEES. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 6 June 1906

DISPOSAL OF THE FEES. Under this1 heading the following paragraphs appear : — 'One of the principal subjects to which by my commission I was instructed to direct my attention, was the purity of the administration. 'In addition to the large sums paid to land agents in the case of Sims v Browne and the Myall Creek case, it was proved in almost all the. im provement lease cases I have investi gated that very large sums were so tain was, whether any of that money could be traced to the Minister or any of the officers of the department. 'I ought to state at once that no evidence before me implicated any officer of the department in the receipt of any money received by any land agent. 'I saw very plainly from the first that direct evidence of bribery would bo very hard to get, for, if such occur red, every effort would be made to con ceal it, and no documents would be forthcoming to prove it. The -trans- action would be solely between the briber and the bribed, and they would take care, a...

BATH, WILLIS, CLOSE, AND CRICK. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 6 June 1906

BATH, WILLIS, CLOSE, AND CRICK. Under the heading, 'Purchase of Myall -Creek Estate,' the report says: 'Of the .sum of £4067 '7S. paid to J. C. Young and Co., a sum of £335 J5S was retained by them, and Mr. Willis received ,£4632 2s., out. of which he al lowed J. C. Young and Co. .£400 in re spect of the case Sims v. Browne, and the cheque of J. C. Young and Co. was given to Mr. Willis for the bal ance, .64232 as. No further or other fee appears to have been paid. 'There was, therefore, no 'introduc- tion 01 a purcnascr, as in me tiise ui ' a private contract, nor could I sec that any work was' done by Willis to jus tify s'uch an enormous fee. 'A further sum of ,61500 was paid by Mr. Willis -to Mr. Charles Bath un der extraordinary circumstances. 'Bath was, and for many years had been, an intimate friend of Mr. Crick, Ij8&icl lived near him at Randwick, and /-$%% story told by Bath was that Mr. $&PlP told him that Mr. Willis was IjSS&mMng of going to England,...

MR. EDWARD MACFARLANE. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 6 June 1906

MR. EDWARD MACFARLANE. The report deals fully with Mr. Ed ward Macfarlane's action when Assist ant Under-Secretary for Lands under Mr. Crick,, and the Commissioner says :' — 'In so far as he personally dealt with any matters, Mr. Macfarlane merely caricd out the wishes of the Minister, and the opinion of the de partment was practically eliminated. . 'Mr. Crick has generously stated thaHic takes upon himself the respon sibility for the acts of his subordin ates, but I do not think that that alto gether relieves his Undcr-Secretary from the proper performance of his own duties. . ' . 'It is, in my opinion, the duty of the Undcr-Sccrctary to lay before the Min ister the right and wrong of each case, and then to let the Minister decide. The ultimate decision must, of course, rest with the Minister, but the Under secretary should state to the Minister what had to be said for and against the application. 'I cannot say that Mr. Macfarlane in many cases did this. 'I have already referred to...

REFERENCE TO MR. CAR RUTHERS. Under the heading of 'Examination of Accounts/' the Judge thus refers to Mr. Carruthers, State Premier : — 'Mr. Carruthers- who was Minister for Lands from the year 1S94 to the year 1899, voluntarily placed all his accounts and papers for examination by Mr. Bowes, who made a careful an alysis of them, and reported to me. 'After stating what accounts, docu ments, and naoers he had examined. Mr. Bowes concludes his report as fol lows : — 'It will be seen that I have had every means afforded me of making a thorough examination of Mr. Carruth ers' bank account, and, although I have scrutinised all sums paid in, amounting to ,£50 and upwards, and many under that amount, I have been unable to discover any payment to him in connection with a land transaction, or anything to suggest that such a payment could have been made.'
