BRANCH REPORTS. THE METROPOLITAN BRANCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 February 1906
BRANCH REPORTS. THE METROPOLITAN BRANCH. The Metropolitan Branch of the Farm ers' and Settlers' Association is making: considerable headway, and it is proposed to inaugurate regular meeting's so as to afford opportunity for members of coun try branches on their visits to Sydney to get into touch with metropolitan mem bers, and thereby assist in the movement generally. At the next meeting- it is to be proposed that a regular monthly meet ing- be instituted, the dates of such meet ings to be kept well before members throuR-h the columns of 'The Farmer and Settler,' and that an invitation be ex tended to any member of the Association visiting the metropolis to attend. At the I last meeting of the branch, Mr. E. H. E. Allen, President of Engowra Branch, and Mr. A. Mortimer, Vice-President of Gil gandra branch, were among the visitors, and submitted various matters in which their respective branches were moving. Mr. O'Neil also submitted his views on the present system of handling wheat ...
MILBY WEST. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 February 1906
MILBY WEST. Secretary E. H. Henderson writes un der date 30th ultimo : — There is no doubt the landholders want some paper to represent their inter ests, and as I am anxious to see 'The Farmer and Settler' a success, I intend to write to or see personally all the mem bers of this branch, and get them to sub scribe to it. You will have to do some battling, of course, as there will be plen ty of criticism from other sections of the press, and not a little from our own I class, for if half a dozen of us get to I gether we all have different views on I political questions. Three years ago I this district passed through one of the a greatest droughts ever known, and this I year it has suffered severely from fire. I If we are unable to pay the rent one I year it is tacked on to the next. How I can a landholder prosper when the Lands I Department impose the maximum rent in I this way ?. After' allowing for his keep — I and very poor keep at that — if he has to I pay two rents in the one ye...
BRANCH REPORTS—Continued. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 February 1906
BRANCH REPORTS— continued. We intend to bring the matter before our member, Mr. W. Bennett, and shall be thankful if other members will assist to alter this state of things. There are miles of gravelling to be done on this road, and should be done before winter rains set in. It should be laid down wherever the foundation metal shows. It wants this to make it even in the state existing five years ago. Later. At a later meeting the matter of the roads, was brought up, and in compliance with the wishes of our Association, the secretary has written a long letter to the member for the district concerning the negligence shown by the Roads Depart ment in attending to our requirements, ever since there was a hope of passing the Shires Bill. It is to be hoped that he will make himself heard, and get things of this kind straightened up properly before the burden is put on local shoulders. We also have had to write to our Fed eral member upon the matter of the tele phone, which seems again she...
UNDERBANK. Starving the Roads.—Local Government. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 February 1906
I UNDERBANK. ' Starving the Roads. — Local Government. One of the matters to be brought for ward at next meeting is the unsatisfactory state of the roads. It is hard to account for this neglect, unless the passing of the Shires Bill has kept road requirements shelved to saddle the expense on the }ocal ratepapers. This is so obviously unjust that I trust the country members may be influenced to move solidly against the handing over the welfare .of our roads to 1 any iuutii uuuitss uuui me juauo ua»c uccu put into a thorough state of repair. From Dungog to beyond Underbank the roads are in many places lacking gravel and ex posed to the. big blocks ofuncracked foundation stone, enough . to lame and . cripple every horse on the road. The cul \\ verts are unsafe to drive over. Two I young men, trotting albng the road in I front of the writer, pa-ssed over a cul I vert about four miles from Dungog. One I horse went through, throwing the rider, I and smashing the horse's leg well above I-;...
BRANCH REPORTS—continued. BENA AND WAMBOYNE. Mail Matters.—Wire Netting.—The Appraisement Farce. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 February 1906
BRANCH REPORTS— continued. BENA AND WAMBOYNE. Mail Matters.— Wire Netting.— The Appraisement Faroe. The regular meeting: of this branch, at Wamboyne on the 3rd inst., was fairly well attended, Mr. Fitzgerald in the chair. Tin* rnrrasnnndfincn mainlv referred tn district mail matters, four new proposals having- for some time past eng-ag-ed the at tention of the branch. Three of these, viz., Moonbi to Wamboyne, Bena to Wya long. and improvements in the Billy's Lookout service, have just been brought '' to a successful issue, and the fourth (a direct Forbes-Marsden-Wyalong- service) is now under consideration. On the mo tion of Messrs. R. Fitzgerald and Ludlow a special vote of thanks was accorded to Mr. T. Brown, M.H.R., for his assist ance in these matters. Other correspondence related to minor matters of local interest, and also to the new association newspaper. The Hon. Secretary (Mr. VV. A. Ewers) as one of the Executive, said that it would soon be recognised, even by those who in...
THE FIRE FIEND AND THE ADVANCE AGENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 February 1906
THE FIRE FIEND AND THE ADVANCE AGENT. Mr. T. Brown, M.P., has returned from a visit to portions of his electorate which have been devastated- by bush fires. He must have told a thrilling, story to the 'Herald' reporter who interviewed him on the subject, and as a result reduced to cold print the following remarkable sen tences : — 'On the wings of the storm the fire fiend burst the bonds of restraint, and rode in awesome splendour, the dread master of the situation. Sheets of flame, and burning debris were carried high in mid-air in advance of the main body of fire, which followed rapidly, and' burning- debris acted as an advance agent of the fire fiend.' We are inclined to think Mr.« Brown's bold interviewer has missed his true vocation. With such glowing Ian-: guage at his command he would shine as an advance agent of a circus troupe. The inadequacy of the arrangements at the Sydney Technical College is illus trated by the fact that the sheep and wool classes have already been fil...
THE BARREN JACK SCHEME. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 February 1906
THE BARREN JACK SCHEME. To the Editor. Sir,— In the Premier's speech at Royal Exchange on 25th January last, he stated ' that the work which Mr. Lee has in augurated with regard to water conserva tion would go a long way towards over coming the defects of a climate which at the present time held the agricultural in dustry at its mercy.' We. are now in possession of what the Minister for Works' intention is, in refer ence to utilising the waters to be con served by means of a large storage work at Barren Jack. It is to create a Mildura Settlement near Narrandera, and cut the land into farms of from 20 to 80 acres, which will necessitate intense culture, and fruit-growing, with perhaps a little dairying combined, must be the means adopted to maintain the 25,000 persons who are going to live on an area of about 180,000 acres, according to the Minister's forecast. - This in its way is an excellent project, but at present is at least twenty five years before its time. One thing is certai...
A WORD OF PRAISE AND PROMISE. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 February 1906
A WORD OF PRAISE AND PROMISE. To the Editor. Sir, — I have much pleasure in forward ing my subscription for your. journal, and in offering my congratulations on the splendid start you have made. I am con vinced that 'The. Farmer and Settler' will be both a very powerful political fac tor for the cause of 'the man on the land,' and an invaluable educational 4n fluence. The small man is the man who is going to make and to keep Australia, and my sympathies are with him and his strug gles, his successes, and his failures, all the time. Although the representative of a city constituency, my heart is in the country, because I see that there lies the only hope of prosperity for Sydney. I shall be prepared to do all I can to support many of the items in your politi cal platform, and especially that one which demands a rigid scrutiny of all Crown Lands held under Occupation Lic ense, Annual Lease, Improvement Lease, and as timber, mining and travelling stock reserves. If the branches of the ...

THE WILLIS FIASCO. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 February 1906
THE WILLIS FIASCO. The breakdown of proceedings re garding the extradition of W. N. Willis from Natal to New South Wales came rather as a shock to many who have been patiently fol lowing the developments at the Lands Commission, and awaiting the denouement ; and now that it is plain that the prospects of any suc cessful action to compel the attend ance of Willis at the Lands Commis sion enquiry are extremely remote, it is to be hoped that the enquiry will soon be closed, and that Mr. Justice Owen's report will be sub mitted to the Government, and the whole proceedings then be open for public comment. Some very inter esting facts will probably be disclos ed when the subject is open for dis cussion. ? The presence or absence of Willis should be immaterial to the issues before the Commission, and although it would have probably in tensified the interest in the final pro ceedings had Willis been available for fuller examination, the Commis sioner's report will probably lose no thing of ...
THE F.A.Q. STANDARD. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 February 1906
THE F.A.Q. STANDARD. A correspondent in this issue touches on the matter of the fixing of the F.A.Q. wheat standard at 62 lbs. This is a question of. great im portance to farmers, and it is satis factory to note that the Chamber of Commerce has made overtures to the Farmers' and Settlers' Associa tion to assist in arriving at a fair and equitable standard as represent ing 'the fair average quality' of the season's harvest. We desire to em phasize the importance of this mat ter to the individual farmer, and it behoves our Association as repre sentative of the true interests of the producer, both individually and col lectively, to assist the Chamber of Commerce in the matter, by collect ing the fair average samples of each district, so as to strike the happy medium as applying to the State as a whole. Our correspondent asks for suggestions 'that would tend to bet ter safeguard the interests of grow ers,' and in answer to that query we unhesitatingly say he himself furnishes the soluti...
THE POLICY OF "THE FARMER AND SETTLER." [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 February 1906
THE POLICY OF 'THE FARMER AND SETTLER.' The following resolutions, which were passed at the last Annual Conference, form the basis of this Journal's policy. It Is our grea task to further advocate these aims, and to spread a knowledge of the Association's work among the many tho usands of the farmers and set tlers of this State who— neglecting their own interests — still remain outside the membership of the Association. The result anticipated is that such an Increas ed membership will be secured, and so many District Branches be added to our present strength as to ensure these reso lutions ultimately forming part of the State laws, making for the betterment of the conditions of life and labour upon the land, and for the realisation of which every farmer and settler should now ,-? unite. T. I. CAMPBELL, General Secretary. Offices: 84 Pitt St., Sydney. STATE LAND BANK, i. That this Conference upholds and approves of the proposed amalgamation by the Government of the Post Office and Ba...
SPECIAL NOTICE. To Branches of the Association. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 February 1906
SPECIAL NOTICE. To Branches of the Association. Now that our paper is an established fact, and the Association has an official organ directly under the control of the Executive Council, circulating' each week throughout the State, we purpose using the columns of the 'Farmer and Settler' in making- official communications to branches, thereby stimulating interest in rjrancn meetings, ana materially assist ing branch secretaries in keeping mat ters of importance well under the notice of members and also of settlers generally. We desire to specially bring under no tice that the Executive Council will meet in Sydney on April 9th, and as the busi ness under consideration will be the pre paration of annual report and ensuing 'Conference arrangements, we would ask branch secretaries to arrange their meet ings for early dates, so that full con sideration may be given to any matters they desire to have brought before the Executive Council for inclusion in Con ference business paper. Branch S...
TARIFF COMMISSION. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 February 1906
TARIFF COMMISSION. To the Editor. Sir, — I beg space in your valuable paper to draw the attention of the various branches of the Association towards the Tariff Commission, which will soon be nearmg Us .close, with the intention of trying to devise some means whereby the rural producers of this State may be given a chance to voice their opinions upon any alterations in the Federal Tariff before the Commission closes. It was passed by resolution at the Dubbo Conference that the Association in its entirety should not embark upon politics, but this was amended at the last Sydney Conference to the effect that branches in their respec tive electorates may take political action in regard to representation ; and if so, any branch would, I consider, be quite justi fied in passing resolutions affecting the tariff. Such resolutions could be forward ed to our General Secretary, who could be instructed to present them before the Tariff Commission. Up to the present, nearly the whole of the time ...
CLAIMS OF CLOSER SETTLEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 February 1906
CLAIMS OF CLOSER SETTLEMENT. 'The reasons for closer settlement are many, and the chief of them all that, if God so will, we may keep this pleasant land of Australia for our children and their kin. The great squattage, which has been one of the former glories of this country, breeds sheep, not men; but we cannot put our trust in sheen in the day when armed hosts come together. It is plain, therefore, that the policy which will give us men and women — the mothers of men — is all vital and urgent for Australia to-day. To divide the land, to put it to its best use, to place 50 men where there is one to-day, there are the claims of those who cry for closer settlement.' — Dr. Arthur, M.L.A. There are to-day, in Canada, some three thousand cheese factories, with an annual aggregate output of i8,ooo,ooolbs. of cheese, or an average of about oooolbs. per factory. ? No town in the world imports more honey than Hamburg. In 1891 the im portation was 8,300,000 pounds, at an average price of 6d ...
