Plying for Hire Without License. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911
Plying for Hire Without License. An interesting case under the local government ordinances "was heard at Bega Police Court, when the munici pal council proceeded against Percy Von Heyde, residing at Boinbala, for plying for hire within the municipal ity with an unlicensed car. The facts were that Heyde, the defendant, brought a party from Bombala to the Bega races. He was under contract to take them to and from the course, and in doing this he picked up out siders at the course, and drove them into town, for which they tendered the usual fee, which the driver ac cepted, but did not demand. Defen dant's counsel argued that the car' could not be plying for hire while it was running under contract to pick up certain people, and that if this iwere so the car would have to be li censed in every shire and municipal ity which it entered. The police ma gistrate overruled the point, and fined the defendant £1. In connection with the above case, a point was raised by defendant's solicitor, wh...

Public Gates. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911
Public Gates. A carrier wrote to Gostwyck Shire Council, asking them to insist on pro vision being made to keep gate3 secure from swinging back when opening, as he recently had a valu able horse killed by a gate closing on liim. This is a very reasonable sug gestion, and should be capable of being carried out. The president said he thought the trouble could be easily avoided, at a small cost, by owners putting in a post, with a hook at tached, so as to hold the gate securely open while persons are passing through. It was decided that owners be notified to erect such appendages to their gates, or otherwise make the gate free from the trouble.

PIG RAISING. A Golden Opportunity and a Much Neglected Industry. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 28 April 1911
BBgMMMkllilUHJlliLJmiiiaUMimimWHUMCBHIIIIIII II Mil PIG RAISING. A Golden Opportunity and a Much Neglected Industry. On many occasions, "when the sea son turned out droughty, or prices for wheat and wool were low, the man on the land had the opportunity to fix another string to his bow, -either by the cultivation of other ?crops, or the keeping of pigs, the last at all times one of the greatest stand-bys in farming. In Ireland the pig is often the rent-raiser of the -farm, and when it is put alongside the sheep, it gives the better return of the two. Yet wool-growing has ?so taken possession of all "classes of settlers in New South Wales that the pig has been greatly neg lected. Even to-day, when the wealth in this animal has beeit made more And more apparent, it is a difficult matter to get the farmer to under ?stand it. It is hardly credible that there were only a few more pigs in the State at the end of last year than in 1870 ; in fact, the statistics from that date onwards show ...

UNDERBANK. At a meeting of this branch a letter was read from the Department of Agriculture stating that it would subsidise herd-testing associations to the extent of 10s, in the pound. Two co-operative butter factories wrote oLering any assistance in their- power to any herd-testing association that might be formed.

Mr. Holman's Policy Speech. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 28 April 1911
Mr. Holman s Policy Speech. Comments by Mr, Wade* Commenting upon the Cootamundra policy speech by Mr. Holman, the ex-Premier, Mr. "Wade, said during the week : " VVe were challenged during the last State elections," Mr. Wade went on, " with four things-extravagance, backwardness in our education policy, failure in our industrial legislation, and want of activity as to land set tlement. Mr. Holman's speech is a vindication of the Liberals in prac tically everything. So far from hold ing up his hands in lioly horror at our alleged extravagance, he proposes to go farther. The Government's pro posed expenditure for this year will be the highest on record for the State. '. The proposals outlined will involve an expenditure of many millions of money. The educational forecast closely follows the policy outlined by myself prior to the last election. The proposed alteration of the In dustrial Disputes Act would appear to involve no radical change, if I may except one matter. . And the outst...

OUR CROWN LANDS. Inventory by the Minister. Wyaiong-Hillston Districts. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 28 April 1911
OUR CROWN LANDS. Inventory by tlie Minister. Wyalong-Hillston Districts. Mr. Niel Nielsen, the Minister for Lands, has recently been on an ex ploration tour of the Wyalong-IIills ton district, for the purpose of as certaining the extent and the classes of Crown lands available there. On being questioned as to results on his return, Mr. Nielsen said he was hav ing a thorough topographical survey made to enable him to know exactly how much, and what sort of land he had available there. "But I have seen enough," he went on, "to know that there are at least a couple of million acres that may be made available for agricultural settlement with the assistance of railway com munication.'' Mr. Nielsen also stated that out South from Mount Hope, in the Western division, and north of the Lachlan River, there were some fine tracts of land, which could, by a slight deviation of the proposed Condobolin-Broken Hill line, be brought' sufficiently close to the rail way to lit tliem for agricultural ...
Notes of the Week The Future in Wheat. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 28 April 1911
The Future in Wheat. ISTo man is indispensable, and much i this country stands to lose by Mr. Sutton's departure for West Australia the work in which he did so well will 3till go on. As he re minds us he will still be working for Australia, and doubtless we in New South Wales will profit by any discoveries lie may make in rendering fertile the wide lands of the Great Western State. He enters upon his new arena; in a spirit of buoyant optimism. Voting some considerable enthusiasm at a West Australian port recently con cerning the export of 25,000 bushels of local wheat he declared his intention of making the export 25,000,000 bush els before he finishes his work. It is a great ambition. It will probably be realised; and an even more opti mistic forecast was made on the same occasion by Professor Watt who is satisfied that the two and a half million acres under wheat in Mew South Wales will yet grow to 20,000, 000 acres. Wheat farming is not re stricted to the region of 20 inch rain f...
POTATO BLIGHT. Meeting at Orange. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 28 April 1911
POTATO BLIGHT. Meeting at Orange. At a. large meeting of Orange farmers, held for the purpose of tak ing some ueJinite steps to deal with the reported case of Irish blight in a potato crop on a small farm near the town, a curious . situation had deve - loped. :vr.: The inspector had reported the infection six weeks previously, and naturally the potatoes were ex pected to decay and the blight to spread. While delays occurrc.il in dealing with the case the crop wimt on ripening, and it was found that' after all the potatoes are..apparently free, from disease. As a. result of the Department having declared ilie field infected with Irish blight, a subscription list was 'opened''by the district farmers to raise funds to purchase the crop, with a view to having it destroyed by the Govern ment as promised, and some £40 was collected.' But seeing that, in the opinion of the farmers, the crop is not: blight infected, they are not go ing to have it destroyed. All that is the matter with the p...
The State Government Policy. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 28 April 1911
The State Government Policy. Mr. Holman's speech on the policy of his Government was a mixture of good airad iba'cl. Evidently to. some extent ministerial responsibility is educating him to a sense of the .practical. A wholesome sign of this is his vigorous repudia tion of the "no-borrowing" fad. At one time (this fad was almost the head and front of the Labor policy, which insisted that everything should be paid for out of revenue. This con tention, which is still heard occasionally, is, of course, absurd in principle and impossible of application. This country could never have been developed without borrowed money, and if the development is to go on then so also must the borrowing. If ithe lender has no qualms, neither should we. Our security is 'the amplest which could be offered. . Mr. Holman proposes a very vigorous policy indeed. He proposes to utilise 10,000,000 .acres of Crown land for closer settlement^ and in order to do this he boldly faces ithe necessity for an expansive...
THE DISEASE—CERTAIN. Market Quickly. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 28 April 1911
THE DISEASE-CERTAIN. Market Quickly. The hope, however, that what was called. Irish blight on an Orange farm had been wrongly diagnosed, and was some familiar and far less destruc tive disease, has been ruthlessly dis pelled during the last few days. In the course of an interview with a representative of "The Land," Mr. H. C. L. Anderson, Director of Agricul ture, said: "The Department of Ag riculture obtained specimens from two totally distinct sources, and were sent independently to the Go vernment Pathologist, who has defi nitely recognised the disease Irish blight in the leaves and stems. Spe cimens of the tubers have been sub mitted, and the disease has not been found in them, but that simply means that the climatic conditions have not favoured the development of the disease, and the passage of it down the stems into the tubers. At the same time, it is exceedingly un likely that some of the tubers are not infected, and if they were kept for a time, and the right conditions deve...

FRIDAY, APRIL 28, 1911. The "Noes' Have It. Although at the moment of writing the voting returns on the Referenda are far from complete, it seems extremely im probable that any later figures will materially alter the position ,as at present disclosed. For "Yes" to have prevailed at least four States must have each returned a majority vote in addition to which a majority vote for the whole of the Commonwealth, considered as one electorate, must have been cast. As it has turned out, however, not only the people of the Commonwealth as a whole but the States also have given a majority for "No." In New South Wales and Victoria the negative vote has been emphatic; in Queensland, South Australia and Tasmania only less so; while in Western Australia the division of opinion seems to have been cl...
