SOME PLAIN TALK. (Editor, "The Land.") [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911
SOME PLAIN TALK. (Editor, "The Land.") A meeting of more than ordinary importance was called for Tnursday night last in the Protestant Hall. Our Moerell Factory directorate re ceived a circular signed J. W. JLaw rie, .Byron Bay. When delegates as sembled it was plain that most of them came under instructions from their various boarus to form a union of factories. The chairman, Mr. Shepherd, ex plained from liis point of view the question at issue, but in refusing to allow the general secretary of the Farmers and Settlers' Association to explain the position, and thus throw some light upon what seems to me a political move to keep the dairy farm ers from joinng the Farmers and Settlers' Association he alienated the sympathy of a very large number of dairymen, who were only too anxious to arrive au some broad plan of ac tion to fight a common foe. The attitude of the chair was such that fully half the delegates retired from the conference. Mr. 1). A. McDonnell, of Manning River, Mr. N...
THE GENERAL SECRETARY AND THE DAIRY FARMERS' UNION. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911
THE GENERAL SECRETARY AND THE DAIRY FARMERS' UNION. In tlie course of an interview on the possible outcome of tlie confer ence of dairy farmers, held at tlie jprotestant Ilall last week, Mr. T. I. Campbell, general secretary of the Farmers and Settlers' Association, stated that he did not regard the de cision of the meeting in anything of a serious light. No opportunity was given to those present to understand what the position really was as re garded the Farmers and Settlers' As sociation. The circulars calling the meeting were from the standpoint of establishing a union of dairy fac tories, which was a very different proposition to the aims and objects of the Farmers and Settlers' Asso ' ciation. In Mr. Campbell's opinion, the chairman at the conference was . very prejudiced, and though stating he was animated by no hostility nor opposition towards the Association, he seemed determined that the dairy farmers should not have the chance of learning how the Association could be made ...

£111111 lllll£ Dividing the Producers. = = THE DAIRY UNION PROJECT. = Sililll mm? l)aiiy fanners representative of most ox the dairying districts of the State met at the Portestant l-lall last week, and proceeded to consider the best plan of uniting to protect their interests as threatened by the claims put forward by tue K.W. Union. Mr. E. Shepherd (JJomatlerry) pre sided. Tue necessity of uniting seemed to be a matter 01 conviction, and two methods were uppermost : One, that of affiliating with the Farmers, and Settlers' Association, uie other that of forming a dairy men's union pure and simple. A fairly large minority favoured the former plan, which, however, shared the usual fate of minority-espoused principles, and it was decided to launch a union, the following resolu tion being carried, on the motion of Mr. W. Watts . (Shoalhaven), seconded by Mr. Dowie (Glenifl'er): "That a union consisting of the dairy farmers of iSiew South Wales be at once formed, embracing- the movement ...

DETERMINING BUTTER PRICES. Dairymen Want Representation. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911
DETERMINING "BUTTER PRICES. Dairymen Want Representation. Tlic question of having some say in the lixing of butter prices has been agitating the minds of dairymen and factory managers for some l.ong time past. Last "week it will be lemem Dered that we published a resolution passed at a meeting of the Manning lliver Co-operative Company to the enect that the co-operative factories should have more direct representa tion in the fixing of butter prices in Sydney, and advocating a board elected by the various co-operative factories throughout the State.

Bell will never make a fighter, and he is never likely to be matched in Sydney again.
A.J.C. AUTUMN MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911
A.J.C. AUTUMN MEETING. The Australian Jockey Club's au tumn meeting was opened on Satur day, in glorious weather, but on Syd ney Cup day-Monday-it rained so heavily that it was feared that the day's racing would have to be post poned. The feature of the first day's sport was the success of the Victorian horses, who appropriated five of the six races on the programme, includ ing the principal event-Doncaster Handicap. The local forces were thoroughly routed, and have never be fore fared so badly at a big fixture. The Victorian victories were all full of merit, and the element of fluke did not enter into one of them. The Hurdle Race opened proceed ings on Doncaster Day, and, some thing unusual for Randwick, it at tracted 13 runners, Royal Fleet, with the steadier of 12.1, was installed favourite at 5 to 2, but the weight anchored her. Another Victorian was equal to winning, however, and that was Boyong (Scliimmel-Campan ula). He carried 10.5, and although at 8 to 1, was well backed. H...

The meeting was rather long, and was not finished till 5 p.m., and Mr. Cox had to address another that even ing at Ardletlian, some twelve miles distant, which he...

DAIRY PRODUCE. The only change worth noting since our last report has been in eggs, which have sold up as high as 2/4 per dozen for choiee new-laid, but the ebb has set in, and they are lower, but still too high for the average housekeeper.

Potato Growers in Conference. SOME GOOD REFORMS ADVOCATED. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911
Potato Growers in Conference. SOME GOOD REFORMS ADVOCATED. The New South Wales Potato Growers' Association held, their ^ an nual conference in Sydney on Tues day last, Mr. J. Gillespie, jun. (lvialla), presiding. The attendance, however, was small, and called forth some adverse criticism from the chairman, who pointed out that if the association had not accomplished all some had required of it, the fault lay with the growers not co-operat ing. It was only by united action that they could hope to get clean potato districts in Mew South Wales. Amongst the more important resolu tions carried was one dealing with the grave danger in the indiscriminate use of second-hand unsterilised bags for distribution of such products as bran, pollard, maize, grains, and all root crops, and it was urged that farmers should help themselves and not touch second-hand potato bags at any price. It was resolved to urge the Department of Agriculture to adopt some system of sterilisa tion of all bags used fo...
