PROGRESSIVE LAND TAX. The Editor, "The Farmer and Settler." [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 6 June 1906

RAILWAYS AND CLOSER SETTLEMENT. The Editor, "The Farmer and Settler." [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 6 June 1906
RAILWAYS AND CLOSER SET TLEMENT. The Editor, 'The Farmer and Settler.' Sir, — Mr. John Flanagan's letter in your issue of 16th instant gives me the impression that 'Ajax' and the progressive tax has blossomed into ' John Flanagan' and freehold ten ure. However this may be, Mr. Flan agan does not devote much attention to his subject, but branches off to pro tection. ^ I have no inclination to traverse Mr. Flanagan's arguments in favor of pro tertinn. flirtlmr flm« tr\ c'nryrrnct fKnf 1%« ? -?---«, ? *..»..%»* v...... tw oitf](j^oi Midi 111; should explain to your readers how protection is going to assist the man on the land and primary producers? . My object in writing is to follow up the great question of closer settlement; and deal with it from my own point of view. In my previous letters I have pointed out that the failure of the Act of 1 86 1 to promote closer settlement was due principally to the absence of railways to convey and of markets in which to dispose of the produce gro...

.7,; HURLING IT BACK. Th'c;.' E.ditor,'1.^Tli'e,''Farrner 'and 'Settler.' ?Dear Sir,— I don't know whether you have seen ih'e' article in the 'Bulletin' ? of May ijHh, on ' '.The Producer and the' Other Producer,' but I have, and as1 the .cheap gibes and sneers are wholly directed at our class,' I think it is high time some one took it up. ? The 'Bulletin'' presumes to ; have a monopoly of all the virtues, sincerity included, but after reading the above article, I have come to the conclusion that it is only, a biassed, bungling blatherskite, sufferinc from iauncH™. 1 In quoting Statistician Hall's latest 'figures, it tries to make out that the farmer (parasites, it calls us) is rob bing the State when he is only charg ed 4s. per mile for 100 tons of pro duce to the city, and that the manu facturer suffers gross injustice, in comparison, when he is charged 12s. to 20s. for goods to the country. Surely it docs not take much brains .to sec that the ? cheaper we can get wheat to Sydney ...
CODLIN MOTH. The Editor, "The Farmer and Settler." [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 6 June 1906
CODLIN MOTH. The Editor, 'The Farmer and Settler.' Sir, — In your sub-leader of May 23rd . you refer to the codlin moth pest, and advocate the introduction of a parasite t to eliminate it. It is well known that there is no fruit pest more easily sub dued than this same codlin moth, and if our growers would only use their influence to press the Government to bring forward legislation to make every orchardist do his best towards keeping his own place clean, the diffi culty would be over. Tasmania was in as bad a state with the moth as we are, but legislation helped them to al most clear it out, so that they can now send away hundreds of thousands of cases of apples annually to supply not only the London markets but the New South Wales fruitgrower with fruit. Codlin moth . grubs have parasites here, but if we wait for them to clear it out, we shall be good customers for Tasmania for many a long year. Let us be up and doing. We have got apple country from Yass to Orange and away north t...
THAT DUBBO PETITION. A FOOLISH OPPOSITION. The Editor "The Farmer and Settlor." [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 6 June 1906
THAT DUBBO PETITION. A FOOLI8H OPPOSITION. The Editor 'The Farmer and Seitler.' Sir, — Many people will be greatly surprised that a petition to oppose Dr. Danysz's experiment is being hawked about for signatures, and still more surprised at the remarks made by the Mayor of Dubbo, and supported by Alderman Ryan. How people can be so blind to their own interests and to the welfare of the State passes all com prehension. Will* |JU11IL I (WObVI 13 W*C*b HIVj J-I4W posed remedy would be detrimental to human life. Now, this is a mere as sertion. As a matter of fact, Dr. Danysz's remedy is a profound secret. He undertakes to destroy the rabbits in the same manner and by the same means that the rats' were destroyed in Paris. It is believed by many who have given serious attention to the subject that the remedy to be used is a species or variety of chicken chol ' era, which is not dangerous to human life. So much for objection No. 1. No. 2 point is that many who are now making high wages wil...
AUSTRALIA'S GREY CURSE. THE DANYSZ EXPERIMENT. DR. DANYSZ ARRIVES IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 6 June 1906
^AUSTRALIA'S GREY CURSE. THE DANYSZ EXPERIMENT. DR. DANYSZ ARRIVES IN AUSTRA LIA. Dr. Danysz reached Fremantle on the 29th May, in the R.M.S. Mongolia. He was authorised by the Government to expend ,£600 on the apparatus for his experiments, and has brought with him all the instruments he will require in - order to enable the experiments to be made. To make the trip the Pasteur Institute has granted him two years' leave of absence. Dr. Danysz would not give an opinion as to how the virus is likely to act hv Australia. It will, he said, denend vcrv larcrelv unon the cli matic and other conditions existing in Australia, with which he is not at pre sent familiar. When asked was there any possibility ^ of the disease spreading to animals other than rabbits, the doctor gave a non-committal reply. His object is to demonstrate that it will not. His own opinion is still that it will not, but he intends that his experiments shall leave no doubt on the subject. He is a scientist, and prefers ...
PHENOMENAL MAIZE CROP. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 6 June 1906
PHENOMENAL MAIZE CROP. Mr. C. Everingham, of Carr's Pen insula, has pulled a phenomenal crop of maize this season. From 15 acres an average yjcldof 140 bushels to the acre has been taken. This eclipses any thing ever yet recorded on the Clarence River, where in the early days of maize-growing up to 110 bushels per tiuiiz w«a jjuiuju iiuiu aiiMvit fi*\»fio, when the land was virgin, after the bush fires had passed' over it. Mr. Evc'ringham's land has been cropped about 47 years, and has never been manured, but is repeatedly fertilised by the alluvium deposited by floods.
THE LAND SCANDALS. LATEST DEVELOPMENT. ARREST OF CRICK AND BATH. CHARGED WITH CONSPIRACY. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 6 June 1906
THE LAND SCANDALS. LATEST DEVELOPMENT. ARREST OF CRICK AND BATH. CHARGED WITH CONSPIRACY. Yesterday morning William Pat rick Crick appeared at the Water Po lice Court, and was charged by war rant that, at Sydney, on or about nth April, 1901, he, being a public officer, to wit, the Secretary for Lands. for the State of New South Wales, and charged with the administration of the Crown Lands Act of the said State, and that the said William Patrick Crick, William Nicholas Willis, and Charles Bath, did, on or about, the saiu tiay, at oyciney, in tne siaie aiore said, among themselves, and with one, . ; Peter Collison Close, conspire togeth er to corruptly and extorsively receive and take clivers large sums of moneys from divers persons, applicants for land, under the said Crown Lands Act, against the peace of our Sover eign Lord the King, his Crown and Dignity. Charles Bath was also charged under the same count. Mr. Hayes, of the Crown Law Office, appeared to prosecute, and applied for a...
A FLORAL NATIONAL EMBLEM. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 6 June 1906
A FLORAL NATIONAL EMBLEM. In the course of an interesting ad dress 'at the Sydney Girls' High School recently, Mr. J. II. Maiden said that many people considered the waratah the national flower of the State. It was a gorgeous flower, but it was confined to a small area in the coast district. No official cognisance or authority appeared to exist for the employment of this flower, however, as part of our crest, badge, arms, or bearings, according to the inquiries of Printer). With the sole exception of the Queensland seal, where the sugar cane is employed in a very minor way as a sort of secondary ornament round the badge of the State, Mr. Gullick did not know of any case in Australia in which a plant was officially recog nised. There had not been any agree ment in Australia upon a national floral emblem. Probably that agree ment, when it came about, would be on the gum or wattle blossom, which occurred abundantly in all the' States, lie hoped they would all live to see a flower selec...
THE NARROMINE SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 6 June 1906
THE NARROMINE SHOW. The splendid success mending the initial show at Narromine must have been' extremely gratifying to those who have' worked patiently and strenuously for a considerable time to establish Narromine as a show centre. It was considered by several prominent local people that the contiguity to Dubbo would discount to a very considerable degree the importance .of a Narromine gathering, so the greater credit is due to those who persevered and demon strated to the 'doubting Thomases' that Narromine and its settlers have the wherewithal to bring their district into annual prominence, and nrovide a reunion which will be beneficial all round — to the town in its business capacity ; to the settlers, as an educa tive stimulus, by friendly rivalry as re gards the merits of their stock and products, as an essentially farming centre; and to the State, in the atten tion that must necessarily be directed to a district with well-founded claims to be one of the best wheat-growing cent...
ADDITIONAL ACCOMMODATION ON RAILWAYS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 6 June 1906
ADDITIONAL ACCOMMODA TION ON RAILWAY8. The Railway Commissioners annual ly spend a large sum in improvements in the shape of additional station buildings, sidings, grain and goods ' sheds, etc., a vote being taken occa sionally to provide for accommodation to meet increasing traffic on the rail ways and tramways'. The policy of the department is to keep down the expen diture on new lines to' as low a limit as possible, and to provide the mini mum accommodation for the traffic. As the business develops more rooms,' further sidings, over bridges, goods sheds, etc, arc added. The Com missioners have- had a number of requests before them recently for new works, and acknowledge that many of them would undoubtedly be locally convenient, but they have had to inti mate in some cases' that they arc only undertaking works which are absolu tely essential, : and the m'ost pressing arc taken in hand first. At the present time the estimated cost of the hew works' which have been asked for is not ...
AN OPEN LETTER. To the Hon. James Ashton, Minister for Lands, Sydney. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 6 June 1906
AN OPEN LETTER. To the Hon. James Ashton, Minister for Lands, Sydney.. Sir, — The question naturally sug gests itself, upon which of the dif ferent parties in the State — or, per haps more fitly in other words, upon which of the holders of the two dis tinct lines of thought — does the re sponsibility of pushing forward the closer settlement idea rest? On the one hand we have a party which sees no effective means but by a system of taxation varying in sev erity with the varying values of estates. By this system of progressive taxa IHJII 11 Id ClcUUlCU Ulrtl 111 11111C rt aiclli: of affairs will be evolved under which the land will come easily and by steady degrees into the hands of those whom it is safe to suppose could make the best use of it in small areas.

WOOL REPORT. , Goldsbrough, Mort and Co., Ltd., report, for. week ending 3 1st. May, as follows : — The week's business has , been practically confined to private sel ling, which, however, has not been of an extensive nature, owing to the lim ited supplies now coming forward. Notwithstanding the easier tone that marked the closing of the last series of sales in London, the market here still continues firm, and any lots avail able are readily taken at rates fully equivalent to those ruling at the auc tions last week.
