17.—Forfeited Improvement Lease. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911
17.-Forfeited Improvement Lease. (Q.).-An improvement lease was forfeited by "Gazette" notice, dated 19th Feb., 1908, to take effect at the expiration of thirty days. What rates could be recovered by the coun cil in respect of same? (A.).-1. Section 144 of the Local Government Act, sub. sec. 3, provides the amount of any rate shall be due and payable on the expiration of the time fixed in a notice of such rate served on such owner or holder or tenant or licensee, as prescribed, not being less than thirty days after such service. 2. I am of opinion that if the for feiture was made before the rate was completely levied, such lessee or li 'censee is not liable for rates.

CORRESPONDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911
CORRESPONDENCE. Editor "The Land",-The comments .which you make in your issue of 31st ultv on the extract taken from a local paper's account of a meeting of the Coolamon Shire Council are so forcible, that I trust you will allow me an opportunity to show that the paper's account of the proceedings wias far from being a correct one. The facts are these:-Cr. Lyndon pre sented a letter (addressed to the President), which a ratepayer had handed to him, and asked that the Clerk be permitted to read it. Cr. Doubleday immediately inquired if such a course was allowable. The clause in the Ordinance dealing with correspondence was thereupon read, and the President ruled that the let ter could not be read, either by Cr. Lyndon or by the Clerk. The state ment of the local paper that Cr. Lyndon read the letter is entirely untrue. Later on, when moving a re solution, he informed the councillors of the substance of the letter, but he did not read it. You will see from this explanation that the co...

Is he to pay sepa rately on the estate, and the minimum rate 2s Gd on each of the allotments, or are the allotments to be added on to the estate assessment from time to time, and his rate on each would be lOd, instead or 2s 6d. ? (A.).-If A's allotments are sepa rated by a lane or street or road from the estate or from one another, then in such case each must be a separate rating; but if any of the allotments adjoin one another, then those so adjoining would be included in one rating-vide section 136 L.G. Act. (To be Continued.)
MILLET AS A MILK PRODUCER. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911
MILLET AS A MILK PRODUCER. Apparently Japanese; millet is go ing to play an important part in the daily industry as it will be con ducted in Australia before many win ters are over our heads. Mr. Shugg, a Victorian, expresses a high appre ciation of it after a trial. His experi ence/also goes to show that it is a better milk producer than maize, and that'Is saying a good deal. Besides, it is hardier in character. Being an observant man, he notices the results of different fodders on the flow of millc-a point that no farmer can .afford to miss. One year his cows were taken off fields of rye grass and clover, and heavily hand-fed on maize, but gave no extra yield of milk. Despite the fact that the pas ture had become thin and deficient, there was no increase, though he fed liberally with the maize. Last year he changed his dairy herd from simi lar pasture into a field of Japanese millet, and they increased their flow by eight gallons-not a bad increase for 30 cows. So far as its prote...

PURE BREEDS AND CROSSES. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911
PURE BREEDS AND CROSSES. The dual-purpose cow fad lias never struck Australia very serious ly, though there are some who advo cate it. The South Australian dairy expert, Mr. Suter, whose opinions are always worth having, put the matter crisply the other day. "If you want beef, go for beef; if you want milk, stick to the milk breeds." He allowed that the nearest approach to the dual-purpose cow was made by the Red-polled cattle, and the milking shorthorn, but considered that the greatest value would be found on reasonably-sized areas of rich country, where facilities exist ed for the rapid fattening of steers. His argument with respect to the milkers was that if they were deep milkers, and were fed in proportion to their capacity for maximum pro duction, it was asking the impossible to expect them at the end of a pro fitable butter-fat return to fatten easily and bring top prices for beef. Who will dispute the theory that these remarks are full of common sense? The milking shorthorn ...
COMMONWEALTH DEFENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911
; COMMONWEALTH DEFENCE. . Mr. Jolin Flanagan, of Gunbar, writes: - " Will you give me leave to say that I consider your leader in issue 17tli March was the ' most common sense thing I have read on Common wealth defence for many a day-my own ideas to the ' Albury Banner' two years ago to a T. The -population of European countries is so dense, and our products so good and cheap, that those who want our products will come and buy them at our own doors. It will he their own business to pro tect those goods afloat, and not ours. " That par by W. E. Abbot about the bogey of our meat market being cornered is keen, cutting, and . con cise. Mr. Ellet E. Carter, too, shows plainly that if we were de pending solely on Bradford bears, as purchasers of our products, it would be a sad day for Commonwealth pro ducers . All tliese above subjects dovetail one into the other in a cer tain sort of way. Let us build Tip a strong army to protect our con tinent. Let them all come to pur chase our product...

THE R.W.U. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911
THE R.W.U. Thus Mr. A. E. Lamotte, Tam Avortli:-"No doubt most of your readers know by this time that this union is not being engineered by the rural workers themselves, but by a few Labour agitators. These men have agitated themselves into Parliament, and are not going to lose their six, eight, or ten pounds per week easily, so must be doing son^ething to stir up strife. We can not blame them for this, and we can also, blame the farmers if they do not organise to frustrate the aims of these disturbers of rural peace. Has not the farmer enough to con tend with already in the shape of droughts, Hoods, frosts, grasshoppers, etc., without this added deterrent. Let the farmers, come ..together, and discuss ways and means, , and be unanimous on the main points in con nection with/this R.W.U., for they need to combine to defeat these agi tators' claims Granted that in some instances the 'wages asked for are fair enough for skilled men. But to try and bring in the eight hours' sys tem for ...
Motions for Conference. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911
Motions for Conference. On the motion of the President of Cessnock Shire, it was decided to sub mit the following motions for next conference of shire representatives: "That the time lias arrived when the Government should introduce a bill to regulate the width of tyres; that shire councils should receive all re venue from the dog tax; that shire councils should reecive all revenue from hawkers' licenses." In moving the motions he pointed out the havoc the narrow tyres played 011 the shire roads, and estimated the wider tyres would mean a saving to the shire of about £1000 per year. The receipt of the revenue from the dog tax and hawkers' licenses would be a welcome revenue.

S THE TOLL OF THE AGITATOR ! " warmer/' Tweed Heads, -writes : "J. have, filled in and forwar.ded , : my Federal land tax papers, and I just want to tell you how I feel .about the matter. A more unjust act to myself I was never asked to perform. The inconsistency of the Labour Party levying a tax for the defence of the country when they have done and are doing their utmost to strangle the very essentials for the protection of the country ! Any ordinary intelligent person "knows that , to protect a country you must . have money. The legitimate way to get that money is to develop the country's resources. To do that you must have population, and that popu lation to work in harmony. Unfor tunately for my peace of mind.. I know this Labour Party too well.

A RESIDENCE CONDITION. House on a Hill. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911
A RESIDENCE CONDITION. House on a Hill. A rather novel ground for an ap peal to the Land Appeal Court against the' finding of the Gosford Land Board, in respect of an applica tion by John Smith, to convert a h,s. into a c.p., was put forward at the last sitting of the Court. The ap pellant had written to the Minister, asking to be relieved from living on his h.s., as he desired to live on; his freehold. lie gave as his reason for the application that about two years ago, he contacted rheumatism, and . had been very lame ever since which made residence upon the selection some 400 or 500 feet above the main road, a very heavy handicap in the pursuit of his business, also that his new property was permanently wa tered, and the selection was very badly supplied with the same." _ On June 10, 1908, an intimation was made to him that the Minister waived the incurred forfeiture of the h.s., througli non-residence, so long as he continued to own and reside on the freehold block. In giving th...
