Tbo State Cabinet last week dia cuaaed a report on the introduction of the bulk handling of wheat ■yatem supplied by Messrs John Metcalfe and Co. under orders of the Ministry. The Premier stated the Minister of Railways had out lined the proposals in the report, and had announced that he had instructed the Railway Commis sioners to supply a written comment on it beforo Cabinet finally .con sidered it. This comment, the Premier said, would be ready in a few weeks,and Ministers had decided to deal finally with the report when they received it. The report states it is estimated that on a 60,000,000.bushel crop the loss to fanners by purchase of bags is £664,581, of which £500,000 would be spent abroad. The value of keeping so large an annual amount within the Commonwealth and State need not be elaborated.

FARMERS' UNION. [Newspaper Article] — Cressy and Lismore Pioneer and Western Plains Representative — 5 April 1916

FARMERS' UNION. The prevailing unrest in this district among the farmers and producers generally, vrhich has been simmering for a number of years, and more especially since the tinkering with the wheat pool scheme began, reached a climax last week, when the formation of unions was decided upon as a means of fighting for the rights of the producers, not only to be legislated for, but, as Mr Hart subsequently put it, " to demand that they should cease to be legig lated against." To this objective, therefore, a request was sent from the far mers' meeting convened by Mr Alex. Robertson at the conclusion of the wheat protest meeting, at which Mr Hagelthorn was pre sent, to the Victorian Farmers' Union, whose headquarters are at Trentham, asking them to Maid Mr Isaac Hart, their organising secretary, to this district to ad dress meetings and explain the objects of their union. The cen tral body willingly accepted the invitation, and Mr Hart came to this district Ja<t week and h...
