Labor Farm Near Wellington. [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times — 26 October 1899
Labor Farm Near Well ington. Information of an important nature was to- day received in town of the Govern- 1 mini's indention to establish a Labor farm in tho vicinity of Wellington. The information came through the Depart ment and was to the effect that Crown Lands to tho oxteut of about 2000 acres, as near as posfiblo to tho railway station, would bo Bet npnrt for the purpose. Littlo has been heard of this matter ro cently, but doubtless tho now Govornmont, in rtnrannnp.n nf -if'. a nrntnicoa nirl in — ? — i ? vrwajr way, settlement on ttiohuid, and withadssiro to lessen to somo extent tho. unemployed trouble, has resorted to fliii previously tried way out of tho difficulty. There is no doubt that in deciding cn locating the farm near Wellington tho Governmont has hit upon a district which will give tho experiment the fullest opportunity ' of proving it's practi cability.
