FREE SELECTION BEFORE SURVEY. A WORD IN FAVOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 13 June 1906

FREE SELECTION BEFORE SURVEY. A WORD IN FAVOR. In giving some interesting personal reminiscences to a Sydney paper, Mr. Charles Cowper, ex-sheriff, says : — 'During my father's time as Prime Minister, both he and Sir James' Mar tin introduced moderate measures, which would have reformed the land laws, on the principle of survey before selection, and been more beneficial than free selection ; but the squatters were unreasonable, and my father sub sequently became a convert to Sir John Robertson's opinions. If he had visit came its member, in i860, when a man could not get a farm except by paying the squatter a pound a year as annual rent for land, for the fee simple of which the squatter paid the Gov ernment only the same amount an acre, he would have been surprised that he was not converted much sooner. Terence Aubrey Murray, an old land owner, and Deniehy were strong ad vocates for free selection, before sur vey, and it was bound to come. I am now as strong a believer in it as ever...

THE LANDS COMMISSION. EXTRACTS FROM JUDGE OWEN'S REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 13 June 1906

THE LANDS COMMISSION. EXTRACTS FROM JUDGE OWEN'S REPORT. 'I take upon myself the full respon sibility of not asking for further pow ers until it was shown that such further powers were necessary. If I had asked for them earlier I have no doubt the Government would have acceded to my wishes ; but the necessity for the addi tional and unusual powers was only apparent from the evident intention cf a very few witnesses to flout the Com mission and to disclose nothing except U'h.if- fhm- rnilM hn tnrrnrl t-n ^lie/*lrtc/- . . . . I felt that in asking Parlia ment to grant these powers I had to ask it to repose unusual confidence in me as sole Commissioner, that these powers would not be harshly or unfair ly exercised, and I am thankful to say that the known existence of these pow ers has been sufficient without the ne cssity for putting their penalties in force.' 'I do not sec that the Government had any more reason than I had to suspect that Mr. Willis would leave the State as he did, or...

LAND VALUES AT NARANDERA. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 13 June 1906

LAND VALUES AT NARAN DERA. Land values in the neighbourhood of Narandera have received a couple ot splendid advertisements recently in the high prices realised for the well-known farms of A. H. Knagge and the late Robert Egar (says the Narandera 'En- sign'). A mild surprise was created a few weeks afro when the former sold at auction for £4 10s. per acre, but this was easily eclipsed by the price real ised for Egar's farm a day or two back. There were many genuine buy ers present, and bidding commenced at £3 1 os. per acre, which steadily in creased until the coveted little property, was knocked down to the bid of Mr. H. S. Carter at £s 15s. 6d., and since then the purchaser has been offered a sub stantial advance on his bargain.

THE ENGLISH IMMIGRANT. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 13 June 1906

THE ENGLISH IMMIGRANT. Writing from London recently, the correspondent of the 'Daily Tele graph' says : — I met to-day an inter esting immigrant, and one of the very best type. As he was saying good-bye to Mr. Prcedy prior to going on board the Moravian, I took the opportunity of having a chat with him. He was not a good talker, and it was with some difficulty that I persuaded him to tell me his story, which is similar to that of many another English farmer. Since 1600 his family had farmed in Essex. For 70 years they had farmed the same 400 acres, but recently his farm had passed into the , hands of a wealthy wine merchant in London, who wanted shooting — not farming. So his rent was raised, and irksome game laws enforced. Partridges and pheasants were more needed than wheat, while, though the law says tenants may shoot hares and rabbits, the land lord inserted a clause in. tho lease that if they did they must go. 'So I'm moving out to New South Wales with my little ones,' he said....

MYALL CREEK CLOSER SETTLEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 13 June 1906

MYALL CREEK CLOSER SET TLEMENT. A wire from Invcrell says : — The Land Board concluded a' three-days' sitting on 29th instant, having been principally occupied with allotting My all Creek Closer Settlement Leases. These arc' blocks as yet unapplied for as purchase, and arc now being made available for lease on somewhat similar tenure to annual lease. The number of farms allotted was seven, aggre gating 4495 acres, i-orty leases were granted, representing almost the whole of the balance of the Myall Creek, at rentals ranging from 7d. to 14c!. per acre. There has been considerable grumbling amongst Myall Creek set tlers that they were not given the first chance of getting some of these leases. It is said that a few fortunate indi viduals, who got early information, snapped up several blocks each. One applicant secured fifteen, his applica tions being first in. The board had no option but to grant them, whilst later applicants for single blocks were re fused.

HARSH MEASURES. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 13 June 1906

HARSH MEASURES. A case of stern official exaction on the part of the Lands Department is reported from Albury — so stern, in fact, that one might be led to think that Shylock had his counterpart some where on the staff. From causes not specifically stated, but which may easily be guessed, a man who had se lected under the Robertson Land Act fell into arrears with his interest pay ments, to the amount of about ,£24. He had been regularly paying interest for three-and-thirty years, and even ex acting monetary institutions would not deal harshly with an old client under such circumstances. But the Depart ment cannot boast of much tenderness to the small man in difficulties, if its action in this case is taken as evi dence, although it has apparently winked at big men who have been de liberately exploiting the public estate by means which have been pronounced by Judge Owen as 'corrupt.' What the Department did in this case shews how keen it can be in small matters. The property in respe...

A committee was then appointed to draft a petition, for presentation to the Minister for Lands.

CROWN LANDS LESSEES. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 13 June 1906

CROWN LANDS LESSEES. The High Court had before it recent ly a question of interest to lessees of Crown lands, inasmuch as it raised the point as to how far they are bound by the provisions of section 08 of the Crown Lands Act of 1884. The Chief Judge in Equity had held that the holder of a provisional lease was pro hibited by that section from sub-letting except for grazing purposes. The lessee in the case had agreed to sub let, with timber-cutting rights, but subsequently ueciincu i«j *-*ui} uua ma contract, and when sued for specific performance, he set up the defence that the agreement which he had made was illegal, as it contravened section 98 of the Act, and this contention was up held by the Chief Judge in Equity. The High Court was asked to place an ex tended interpretation on the section, and say that a lessee may sub-let tim ber rights, provided the consent of the Crown is obtained by the person who desires to remove the timber. The agreement contained a stipulation as to c...

NATIONAL TRAITS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 13 June 1906

NATIONAL TRAITS. Some thoughtful observer who has made a study of national characteris tics, says that if a fly drops into a glass of beer a looker-on can easily tell the drinker's nationality by his action. A Spaniard pays for the beer, leiivcs it on the table, and goes away without saying a word. A Frenchman will. do the same, but he swears as he goes. An Englishman spills the beer and then orders another, glass. A German carefully fishes out the fly 'and then drinks his beer, as if nothing had hap pened. A Russian drinks the beer and the fly. A Chinaman fishes out the fly, swallows it, and then throws away tlie beer.
