MELBOURNE LETTER (From our Special Correspondent) Nothing sensational happened as the result or tho re-opening of the Mel bourne Stock Exchange. The man in the street is asking why it snould have rema.ned closod for nearly two mouths. Ho had been under the impression that the appearance of the Emden off Sydney—luck.ly, the possi bility of such a visitation is not ont of the thL.gs we need worry about in Melbourne—-would not have had moro ,clireful choots than that long-deferred re-opening. But it may be takeli as a tribute to the excellence of the pre cautions taken alike in Britain and Australia to guard against anything in the way of financial panic, that tho proceedings were marked by a calm that would bo creditable to a friendly chess party. The committee, had guarded against the effect of "bear ing" operations and "spec" selling in suspending "term" dealing, and signifying their wishes for dealing to was naturally of modest extent on opening day, and prices were on a lower pian...

IRRIGATION SCHEME FOR QUAMBATOOK. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 22 October 1914
IRRIGATION SCHEME FOR QUAMBATOOK. Every farmer who is interested" in irrigation should undoubtedly consider it his duty to be present atthe meeting, in the Mechanics Hall, Quambatook, on Saturday evening next at 8 o'clock, to con sider the scheme offered by the State Rivers and Water Supply Commission. Naturally, it will carry an an additional rate on farmers \v ithin the area. Every one wants water, but farmers don't want to pay 1/9 in the £ for dry channels. Therefore, the meeting under notice has been convened by publiclhen who be lieve that in the multitude of counsellors there is wisdom, and that the best scheme ought to be decided on before any costly works are commenced. Time then to push matters for all they are worth. An irrigation scheme for Quam batook and district would so en hance the value of land that the average farmer could about sell half his holding at double rates, or, in other words, he could dis. pose of half his farm for its pres ent total value, and have -the...
POSITION OF SHARE FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 22 October 1914
POSITION of SHARK farmers. Where a farmer enters into a, "share" contract with another per son, the extent of liability depends upon the arrangement made. If, for instance, one farmer, A, lets his land to farmer B, the latter to pro vide the seed, do the ploughing and harvesting, and then hand over to A his agreed-upon proportion of the proceeds, A would not he deemed the employer of B, and the relationship of priaeipal and con tractor would probably not be set set up, in which case A would not •be liable under the Act for accidents to B's men ; but much depends on the circumstances.
WATER NAMINE. DOG-IN-THE-MANGER POLICY. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 22 October 1914
WATER NAMINE. DOG - IN - THE - MANGER POLICY. The following appeared. in Wednesday's "Argus " from the Swan Hill correspondent : — '' Great indignation has been caused by the action of the State Rivers and Water Supply Com-; mission in diverting the water in the channel in the Long Lake area to Quambatook via Cannie. It is admitted that Quambatook is short of water, but it is also stated that some consideration is due to the settlers in the Long Lake area, who have been paying rates for years, and who are, owing to the perilously low state of the lake, now in danger of being without water. At a meet ing of farmers in the affected area it was decided to immedia tely telegraph to Mr John Gray, M.L.A., with a view to his inter viewing the authorities and put ting the representations of the farmers before them."
FARMERS MUST INSURE CONTRACTORS EMPLOYES. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 22 October 1914
FARMER * MUST INSURE CONTRACTOR EMPLOYES. The liability of_a farmer to the employes of any person who has entered into, say, a threshing and chaffcutHng contract with him has to be considered. The Act pro vides that the employe of a con tractor may, if injured, make his "claim either against the contractor or the principal contractor, that is the farmer employing him, but if the farmer is called upon and pays compensation to such an employe he has a right of indemnity against' ■ the contractor. Therefore the far- | mer requires protection under his policy in respect of contractors' employes should a contract be en tered into, and this can also be ar ranged. The premium chargeable depends upon whether the farmer has arranged with the contractor to effect the necessary insurance or does so himself. If the contractor has insured the men employed on the contract, the farmer still wants some protection, one reason being that complications may arise be tween the contractor and his "in sur...

CASUAL EMPLOYES TO BE INSURED. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 22 October 1914
CASUAL EMPLOYES TO BE ; . • INSURED. It is not necessary Tor an em ployee' to be constantly employed in order to render the farmer liable to pay compensation in terms of the Act. Therefore, when a farmer, completes a proposal, either with a State accident insurance office or a duly approved "insurer," he should include an estimate of the wages and "keep" which he anticipated paying for casual labor during the ensuing twelve months, in addition to the allowauce for the permanent hands: The initial premium : is ! based upon an estimated amount only, and at the conclusion of the policy year'a certificate is supplied to the farmer by the "insurer," in which he fills the exact amount of wages paid during the year, and then returns the certificate to the "insurer.'.' A comparison is then made by the office of the estimated amount on which the premium was originally paid and the actual sum paid ' away, including "keep." Should it be f*und that the actual amount exceeded the estimate, an ad...
RATE OF PREMIUM. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 22 October 1914
KATE OF PREMIUM. Mr , Holmes points, out that the .premium to be paid "by farmers .is] 20i per cent, on the estimated re muneration tor a period of twelve months to employes who come within .the scope of the act. This rate applies irrespective of the work they m y engage in, includ ing bush felling, harvesting and threshing, and housebreaking. To the actual wages must be added the estimated value of "keep," and this is taken as 15s per week for each employee "found so that if a farm hand is in receipt of, say, £i 10s per week and "keep," the actual remuneration on which, the prem/unj t« c«v/?r the employer's liability 1 to pay compensation as provided in the Act is based is £117 per annum; consisting of wages £78 and estimated-value of "keep" £39. The premium, in this case would therefore be £1 3s Id (yearly).
