A SCRAMBLE FOR CAPITAL. AN INTERESTING SPEECH FROM LORD MILNER. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 16 January 1914
A SCRAMBLE FOR CAPITAL, an interesting speech from lokd milner. The presidential address delivered bv Lord Milner, on Octooer 8 before the members of the Birmingnam and Midland Institute, was a remarkable one for it contains perhaps the best r^ume which has been given of one 0f\he leading features of the present finai cial situation, v>z., the great rise in the value of money arising from tbe universal scramble for capi tal The most lengthy report of Lord Miiner's speech is that given in The Ttmes," from which we take the fol After returning thanks for his ap pointment as president, and some eeneral remarks introducing his sub feet Lord Milner went on to say ihat he thought that the title of his ad— dress might very well be described as •A Scramble for Capital.' The inten sity of the competition, he went on to sav varied very much from time to time and the outward and visible sign of a heightened intensity was a n^e in the average rate of interest, which was something far more st...

RAISING THE AVERAGE WHEAT YIELD. SUCCESSFUL GERANG FARMER. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 16 January 1914
RAISING THE AVERAGE WHEAT YIELD SUCCESSFUL GEIUNG FARMER. An illustration ot the extraordi narily high yields that are possible in Victoria, oven in a season such as the past, comes from Nhill. From many contres instances might be cited to show how the thorough farmer has been mainly instrumental in raising the yield to such an unwonted emi nence, and how on the other hand the careless, thriftless man is respon sible for not letting it go much hisrher TIib ahwoo* a? "mv tv c*. vjftenwrooa, of G-erang, near Nhill, is the finest advertisement Victoria's wheat areas has ever received. Al though, at the same time, it is a humiliating reflection upon the ineffi ciency of many of our wheat growers. From an area of 400 acres Mr Greenwood has this year harvested an average of 41 bushels per acre. Victoria's average production is betweon 10 and 11 bushels (this year it will be slightly more than 13 bushels), and Mr Greenwood has demonstrated that ho has been able to almost quad ruple the qua...

?he thill Iigg Iress With which is Incorporated th® "Nhill Mail." FRIDAY, 16TH JANUARY. The Programme of the Watt Ministry. The country districts are Well re presented in the New Watt Ministry and the programme, as outlined in Mr Watt's speech at Essendon, is essentially a country programme. A sustained policy of railway extension, and increased activity in dealing with immigration, are its principal features. These are questions in which the progress of the State is intimately bound up, and a Ministry which will give earnest attention to them will merit the support of all sections of the Liberal Party. There are still great areas of country dis tricts which are only partially de veloped, and which must remain so until they are linked up with the railway system. Land 20 or 30 miles from a railway station, and without good roads, cannot be turned to its best use. There is scarcely a country electorate in the State which does not afford shocking examples of these conditions. A wise an...

AUDIENCE DISAPPOINTED. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 16 January 1914
AUDIENCE DISAPPOINTED. I The large audience who patronised the Theatre Royal on Wednesday evening to see tl>e bo styled "Great" Jansen were keenly disappointed witb the entertainment, which consisted of antiquated conjurer's tricks, inter spersed with two songs (by the same vocalist), and a drama production by two "artists''? which in no wise suited the refined taste of those pre sent, it travelling companies gull tlie public in this manner, a genuine combination when they happen along will find it extremely difficult to even fill the back stalls with patrons. The whole performance on "Wednesday evening only lasted about an hour and a half, inaluding a long interval, and this, combined with the before-men tioned antiquated tricVs by the "Great" Jansen, was responsible for very advere criticism.

But a feat has boon accomplished in South Australia which will set the West Wimmora knights of the twine needle thinking and talking. Wo clip tho following from tho Adelaide Chronicle:—A couple of years ago, Mr •Tames Darley, jun., son of Cr J. Darley, of Georgetown District Council, created a record by filling and sewing 327 bags of wheat in ona day.
