Cricket. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911

Cricket. Petersham and Glebe played a draw, and it "was a very even game. Petersham carried their first innings to 1286, of which P. Newton scored 123 not out. Albert Cotter bowled remarkably well, his average reading 5 for 75. Kelleway had 33 knocked off his bowling without scoring a wicket. Glebe lost 8 for 233. The consistent Warren Bardsley was in evidence again, Australia's champion left-hand er scoring 75. The next highest scorer was Buckle, with 40. Cotter got 23, and Kelleway 20. Half a dozen bowl ers divided the wickets. The leature of the North Sydney -Central Cumberland match, won by the former by 1S8 runs, on the first innings, was a fine score of 162, by N. Y. Deane. North Sydney passed the 261 of Central Cumberland, with the loss of only four wickets. Deane played splendid and vigorous cricket, his first 100 appearing on the board in 70 minutes. He hit 20 fourers and three sixes. Massie knocked up 88 in an hour, and included in the score were four sixes. Googlie bowler...

Boxing. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911

Boxing. Jack; Howard and Colin Bell are to meet 'again at the Sydney Sta dium, on Easter Monday night. When they met a few weeks ago, Howard obtained the verdict, but Bell was not by any means himself, and after a short visit to his home at Moree, he has returned to the metropolis, as fit as the proverbial fiddle. He is quite certain that the thick end of the purse will come his way on Easter Monday night. Bell and Howard promise to put up a good fight. Bell may shape bet ter than he did on the last occasion, i but Howard, with a win to his. cre ; dit in the interim, will also be a better man. He is a hard man to beat, and improving all the time. Still, if Bell, who is two stone the heavier, goes in and fights, the burly man from Moree should win. The battle is rather a poor one to figure as the attraction at the Stadium for an Easter Monday night, however. The fight between Billy Elliott . (feather-weight), and Teddy Green i (bantam champion), at the Stadium 1 last week, was a very...

Motoring [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911

Motoring Hammond, the brilliant and dar ing aviator, who accomplished so many-fine flights in Melbourne is now in Sydney. He has not yet definitely arranged for a ground for his flights, but one of the racecourses will be en gaged. Hammond will not fly until after Easter, however. Mr. Anthony Hordern's 33-knot hydroplane, Kangaroo, won the Motor Boat Championship easily enough on Saturday afternoon, and was well handled by her popular owner. She did not average any 33 knots, how ever. Her speed, was 27 miles per hour. She was not extended, how ever, to beat her only opponent-Fair banks-who finished nearly live min utes after. Fairbanks hit the rocks at Shark Island, and badly damaged her propeller. Kangaroo is only 26 ft. in length, and is of 90 li.p. She is anything but handsome in appearance, but she has the pace all right. Two motor-cycle, reliability trials start from Sydney to-day, and finish on Easter Monday. The Sydney Club will run to Bathurst, and back, and the Motor Cycle ...

Land Appeal Court. FORBES LAND VALUES. Combined Applications. A Legal Reading. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911

Land Appeal Court. FORBES LAND VALUES. Combined Applications. A Legal Reading. Five cases in which land-owners in the Forbes district made appeals in respect of their applications for con- version of original homestead selec- tions or additional homestead selec- tions were dealt with by the Land Appeal Court last week. The prin- ciple involved in one governed the other four. The main case was one in which George U. Styles had applied for conversions of his homestead se- lections into original and additional conditional purchases. The Minister had referred the case to the Court on the ground that there was not any provision for the conversion of a h.s. 0r series into an o.c.p. and a.c.p. in sec. 3 of the C.L. Amendment Act of 1908. In giving judgment, the President (Mr. H. A. G. Curry) pointed out that sub-section 4 defined homestead selectionor grant to mean and in- clude an o.h.s. or grant., and any a.h.s., or grant held in virtue thereof. The latter part of sub-section 1 provided ...

ON THE NORTH COAST. COUNCILLOR WETHERSPOON'S TOUR. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911

ON THE NORTH COAST. COUNCILLOR WETHERSPOON'S TOUR. Never in the history of this country has there been a time when unity of purpose amongst tlie farmers was more requisite than at the present moment. The combinations in opera tion against them must be met by unity on their part. The action of the Farmers and Settlers' Association of endeavouring to gather them all in to one fold must be commended as a Avise and national move. As .one of those deputed to perform work in the field," writes Mr. John Wether spoon, M.L.C., "I decided on having a personal interview with as many as possible of the North Coast farmers, and so made a start on 21st .of March. My first meeting was in Casino, where I met a few of the ?bona-fide men on the land. I was joined nere by Mr. Armstrong, who afterwards proved a tower of strength to me. The result of the meeting was that those present decided to throw in their lot with the F. and S., .and arrangements were made to put the branch in proper order. Mr. W. ...

The Reader's View WHY NOT A COUNTRY CLUB? [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911

jyx . The Reader's View ^ HA. \J 00 C/ WHY NOT A COUNTRY CLUB? "Margueritte" writes: While glancing down ttie columns of your instructive paper, " The Land/' my attention was called to a very interesting interview headed " Why Not a Club ?" The subject, which foreshadows great possibilities, appeals to me as one well worthy the earnest con sideration of every farmer and gra zier throughout the State. That a " residential club" such as that sug gested by Mr. Gilmour would prove a boon to country friends specially is beyond doubt ; and 1 assume that, in the event of the dream becoming a reality, tourists from countries other man our own would not be denied a i.earty welcome within its hospitable walls. One gentleman urges the necessity of country men " coming together, sticking together, and clasping hands across a table !" Another sees no valid reason why the men of the interior should not grip the hands of their brethren of tne coastal districts ; while I would ven ture to extend th...

Our Wheat Harvest. EARLIER ESTIMATES FAR TOO LOW. A Record for the Commonwealth. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911

Our Wheat Harvest. EARLIER ESTIMATES FAR TOO LOW. A Record for the Commonwealth. It lias come to light, despite all the pessimistic reports of the crop which have been circulated 111011th after month, that the earlier official esti mates of ti.e New South Wales har vest were far too low; in fact, alto gether misleading. In December the estimate of the crop was placed at 23,500,000 bushels, but now it ap pears that the actual yield has been something over 27,700,000 bushels, or 4% minion bushels more than previ ously given. Such a discrepancy proves the futility of endeavouring to forecast the actual harvest. How ever, the gain has been ours, and 4% million bushels of wheat means a very fair additional sum in the grow ers' pockets. The harvest, therefore, has only fallen short of the record of the previous year by 823,000 bushels, when 1,990,180 acres were harvested for 2S,532,000 bushels. This season, however, it required 2,117,027 acres (a record ior the area harvested for grain in...

P. P. Boards. ARMIDALE. At a recent meeting of the Arnii dale P.P. Board, Mr. E. C. Blomfield presiding, tlie secretary reported a balance to the credit of the current account of £983 19s 9d., and there was £1000 on fixed deposit. A circular was read from the Kiama hoard re the amount required to be spent by boards in the destruction of rabbit harbour. The secretary said the board had been given five years in which to spend the sum of £9S3, and £483 was yet unspent. With a view to getting more efi'octive work, it was decided to raise the wages of the chief ganger by Is per day, and put on as many competent men as could be ob tained. It was decided to prosecute the trustees of the Walcha and Uralla aborigines reserves, unless the rabbit harbours there were destroyed. With reference to rabbit harbour on the Education Department's property, the board was told, in a letter from the Chief Inspector of Schools, that its destruction would have to be under taken by the board itself.

CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911

CATTLE. Shorthorn's make up'7Q.65 per cent, of the total of beef cattle penned, which nun.bered 184, SS being bulls, but only 17% per cent, of all the cattle entered. South Australia, Victoria, and New Zealand were the outside representatives, and some fine animals had crossed the border from Soutn Australia. But although some of our best Shorthorns had been ob tained from Victoria, only a few had come over from there. The quality was on a par with that of last year. The entries in the ottter beef breeds, Hereford, Devon, Aberdeen Angus, and Ked Polled, were poor, the "polls" numbering altogether only 15. Here fords were not much higher, and the 25 beasts in the stalls had come from six different owners, the three bro thers Reynolds sending the most. In the Devon class the oldest bull on the ground was only one year and ten months old, and the exhibitors numbered two-Messrs. S. lleynolds and Hunter White. The Devon was just the sort of beef animal that ,Avould suit the small farmer,...

The Referenda. A FINAL WORD. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911

N the year 1850, on November 11 th, news arrived in Mel bourne on the grant of separation from New South Wales. The Melbourne people indulged in rejoicings for live days. In 1855 responsible government was proclaimed in Victoria and Tasmania, as well as in New South Wales'. In 1852. a Representative, Legislation was granted to New Zealand. In 1859 responsible government was given to Queensland. These States had all been governed previously from Syd ney. The centralisation now coveted by the Labour Party was then in full swing, until in tne fifties it was unanimously abandoned, as experience proved that distant communities eouiu not be governed effectively from one centre. Since the days mentioned, the separated States have gone each their own way, ueveloping along the lines of their genius and in accordance with their special problems of. soil, climate, and territory. Instead of a million, there is now a population of roughly live millions, and two other immense and distant States h...

DAIRYING SECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911

DAIRYING SECTION. Ill the dairy section breeders were very much to the fore. Jerseys and milking Shorthorns were strong fa vourites; but most classes represen ted displayed good quality, though in some cases the entries were particu larly heavy. The prize-winners were undoubtedly good, and Mr. Donald McNab, the judge, had-liis. work'cut out in deter mining the awards. The milking Shorthorn bull cham pionship was again awarded to the Scottish-Australian Investment Co., Ltd.'s beast "Emblem of jjarbalara," in the opinion of some judges, the best sire of his class seen on the Sydney Show-ground. The reserve championship was won by J. W. Cole, Avitli "Jeweller of Col-: leville," bred by the exhibitor, and first in two-years-old and imaer three class. ? . This breeder was also awarded the championship for the best cow, "The Gold of Coleville," also, a special for the best of milking shorthorns.

"THE GENTLEMAN" WHO PAYS THE RINT." [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911

GXNTLEMAn" WHO ' PAYS . THE RINT." There was a falling-off tnis year in the entries of pigs, as compared with the previous year, ..but competition in most classes was good. The ab sence of one large Victorian exhibitor made some difference, but not suffi cient to account for the shortage of entries. The number of people keep ing pigs in the State is certainly on the increase, but breeding pigs for stud purposes do not show the in crease desirable. The two classes most strongly rep resented were Yorkshires and Berlc sliires, the popularity of these breeds for everyday purposes being undoubt ed. Poland China were present in but small numbers, while large blacks were chiefly conspicuous by their absence, only one entry being listed. Tamworth seemed also wan ing in favour. The champion Yorkshire boar was Mr. P. J. Miller's Bold Boy, and the same owner's sow, Heroine, carried the honour in her class. In Berk shires, Mr. Miller was also the suc cessful exhibitor in boars, with The Toff; w...

He would prohibit potatoes being conveyed to clean areas on the western lines, provided lie found it entailed no hardships 011 consumers further west, but would lift the pro hibition at once if anything in the liature of a ring were formed to un duly raise prices.
