III. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911

III. One does not required to be a pro found economist to perceive that if by means of any system of law every individual composing what are call ed the wage-earning classes of the community could have his wages uni formly increased, the burden of the change must ultimately " rest upon those who are engaged in developing the primary industries of the coun try, whose products are sold at ex port prices in the markets of the world. When an increase takes place in the cost of an article produced in limited quantities, and sold within the boundaries of the Commonwealth, the manufacturer and the distributor reimburse themselves by passing the increased cost on to the purchasing consumer. But in the case of a man who sells his product in the outside markets of the world, at a price de termined by competition in those markets, this operation is not pos sible. He has to take in every in stance just what he can get, whether the cost of production be high or low. During the last nine years, t...

SHALL WE ALTER THE CONSTITUTION? What the Referenda Proposals Mean. WHERE THE PRODUCER STANDS [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911

SHALL WE ALTER THE CONSTITUTION? What the Referenda Proposals Mean. WHERE THE PRODUCER STANDS The decision of the Labour Conference, which concluded its sittings in Sydney this week, not only to support the proposals for the alteration of the Constitution, but to allow no freedom of action or expression to those Labour Parliamentarians who believe those proposals to be un wise, makes it all the more important that the individual country voter should take some pains to reach an independent understanding of the position. The Labour party's ultimate aim, as disclosed in the published proceedings of what was meant to be a secret conference, is not merely to extend the Federal authority, but to destroy the State authority al together, and to abolish the High Court. This would mean such a cen tralisation of government as to enormously aggravate the very evils from which producers and country traders are struggling to free themselves. At the close of the last article, we were asking the qu...

Workmen's Compensation Act. LIABILITY OF COUNTRY EMPLOYERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911

Workmen's Compen sation Act. LIABILITY OF COUNTRY EMPLOYERS. A number of correspondents having written to know how they stand in relation to the Workmen's Compen sation Act, the question as to scope of the Act was referred to " The Land's" solicitor, who furnishes an opinion in the following terms : " 13y clause 3 of the Workmen's Compensation Act No. 10/1910 " ' This Act shall apply to employ ment by the employer on, in, or about " ' Any railway, tramway, factory, workshop, mine, quarry, wharf, vessel, engineering or building work, any building used for dumping or storing wool carried on by or on behalf of the employer as part of his trade or business.' " An employer is a person who habitually employs at least four per sons in his trade or business, and includes firms, companies, and cor porations employing workmen and the legal representatives of a de ceased employer. " The Act does not include farming by express reference, and I think that so long as farming is confined to farmin...

DODDER IN LUCERNE. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911

DODDER IN LUCERNE. Dodder seed matures about the same time as clover seed. A slender, delicate slioot appears., This little stem sways about looking for'a sup ; port; or a host as it is often balled, for its habit is to twine and climb about otner plants, especially clover or lucerne. When' it reaches a clover or lucerne plaiit it sends out little suckers, which enter the host wher ever the dodder touches stems oi* branches, and. extracts therefrom ready-made materials. Here is .where the damage from dodder comes in. The dodder, once attached to a host, \branches extensively,; thus send ing suckers in large numbers into the juice-conveying tissues of the clover or lucerne. As. soon. as. the food stor ed, in the seed is exliaustedj the dod der plant becomes a 'complete para site, living wholly on the host plant. It dies at the ground, thus cutting off all connection with the latter. The trouble begins in circular "spots", which gradually spread out. Exa mine a "spot," and there will ...

Personal [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911

?j* Personal ^ After his bludgeoning in the Labour Conference .which has been contribut ing' so . successfully to the gaiety of Mr. W. A. Holman. nations in Sydney (luring the past week or so, it becomes a question whether W. A. Holman can much longer remain in the ranks of tli6 pure Labour merinos. But whether he withdraws from the fighting ranks of the Labour Party or not, the fact remains that lie is one of the most effective figures which the Labour " movement"-it is always correct to speak of it as the "movement"-lias thrown up. In the Conference, ex hortations to " remember the past" evoked no response. Yet it was his boyish eloquence which not only gained for the Labour Party in its early days valuable ad herents, but gave it, at the same time, soul and shape. It is, there fore, in the last degree indecent for a gathering, of men, nine out of every ten of whom have no more under standing than a cow of the practical issues involved in the Federal Labour Government's mad attack...

Hints for the Farmer. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911

Hints for the Farmer. As few fanners know how to mea sure excavations ..for tanks and dams tlie following is a simple-rule:-(1) ?. To the greater length add half the lesser length, and multiply by the greater width. (2) To the lesser length add half Hliei greater length, and multiply by the lessor width. (3) Add the two sums together, and mul tiply by a third of the depth taken/ perpendicularly. There is no need to measure the roadways or slopes. There are other rules, but. none so simple as the ? above. For instance, a tank measures v ISO feet long by . 80 feet wide at top, pnd 120 feet long by 20 feet wide at bottom, with a depth of 10 feet. Then 180 added to 60 (half of 120), totals 240; this multiplied by 80 gives 19,200. Now 120 added to . 90 (half .jof^lSO), tota-ls 210; multiplied by 20* gives 4200. Add J.9,200 and 4200, and you get 23,400. To get at a third of the depth, 10, which is', not easily divisible, iftultiply first by: 10, equals 234,000, afid divide by 3, which giv...

Inrough the heart of what used to be called desert Australia, Mr. lenry Deane's sur vey party .lias blazed the line for the Transcon tinental Railway. It was pointed out that only one difficulty beset the work of building this railway-want of water. But as soon as man calls upon, the continent to justify itself as a lit field for human habitation, belxold how eloquently the continent . responds ! Word is just to hand that the survey party has struck abund ant water at a depth of 1000ft., nearly half a. thousand miles east of Kalgoorlie and just up against the South Australian border.'"""It is not yet known whether tlie supply just tapped is artesian, but it is abund ant, and goes-far to justify, the hope that, underlying the most forbidding regions of interior Australia, may be cisterned water amply sufficient for the needs of man and his flocks, if not ...

The Handicap of the City. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911

The Handicap of the City. The country made the city. When a Chinaman prevents another ? Chinaman, from committing suicide he is under a strict obligation to maintain the rescued- Chinaman for the remainder of his natural life ; so, having made the city, the country has .to carry the city on its back ever afterwards. Great things are necessary in Sydney. There must be continued resump tions, wharf building, underground trams, a city railway, bridge or tunnel connection between the two Sydneys, perhaps both, and numerous other necessary devices to cope with the life of a great capital. But this work should not be done with money scooped from the pocket of the man on the land. They should await the coming of a Greater Sydney scheme, and the finances of the city should be strictly separated from those of the country. The country has its own urgent and constant needs. It wants miles and miles of railways and other developmental works, and if the Government of the day is to finance these ...

A Sydney Miller Talks Wheat. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911

A Sydney Miller Talks Wheat. "Comeback," says a Sydney miller, "is a good hard wheat, and com pares very well with the Manitoba wheat, but the trouble is that it seems to be going Dack somewhat; certainly it is riot maintaining its original characteristics. 'Bobs' is very similar to 'Comeback,' and rea lises the same price, about a penny or twopence a bushel over that of ordinary wheat. : , - "Federation, from the miller's point of view, is a very dirty wheat. "It produces a tremendous lot of husk," said one prominent Hour factor, "and for that reason the millers do not care for it as much as they do for other varieties." The shippers do not object to it, however. "There is no doubt that the farm ers need to be a little more particu lar with their wheat after it leaves the harvester, or Avinnowing ma chine," said a large handler of the grain to a representative of "The Land," the other day. "If they would only put some dunnage on the ground to stack their wheat on, a lot of the dama...

Telegrams, "The Land,'' Sydney Offices 3 Spring Street, Sydney. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 1911.. The Labour Split. In Opposition, political parties remain compact, as a rule. It is when a party proceeds from Opposition to power that the subtle processes of disintegration begin, and the Labour Party is already ibeset by disruptive influences, some very obvious, some secret. In a movement in whioh every soldier carries a Marshal's baton At is' tdo much to expect that those in posses- / sion-of the prizes of success will be left unmolested', and the . white ants are already busy, with the weapons of intrigue, in the house of Labour.

HELIANTI, A NEW FODDER PLANT. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911

HELIANTI, A NEW FODDER PLANT. Mr. G. H. Pickard, of Thirlmere, informs "The Clarence Examiner," that while on a recent trip to Eng land, he saw exhibited at the Royal Agricultural Show, the new fodder plant called Helianti. The attention of English farmers was first drawn to this plant by an account of it in the "Daily Mail," at the Paris Agri cultural Show. When Mr. Pickard saw tlve plant it had just been intro duced into England, and was then being tested in Norfolk. lie pur chased a supply of the roots, and has planted them on his farm at Thirl mere, where, lie says, they are now doing well, the stalks now being 5ft. in height. The Helianti belongs to ' the-.artichoke family, but is a more robust grower than the variety gene rally used for culinary and fodder ?.purposes, and unlike those of the Je rusalem artichoke, the tubers are very elongated. Both the tops and the tubers arc used for fodder, in-a variety of forms, and the most ex aggerated claims have been made for its: value...

Experimentalist, and two other officers, yet to be selected, will represent the" N.S.W. Department of Agriculture. There is also an invi tation for three practical farmers to represent the State, but. the difficulty appears to be that men who would most fittingly do so may be unable to spare the time or are not dis posed to go to the expense of the trip. The farmers who do go will have to defray their own expenses, though there will be a concession in : fares if a party of six is made up.

CURRA CREEK. The ...secretary, reports"The , R. W.U. log was considered by my branch at the last monthly 'meeting. The members consider the eight hours' system, as applied to farm work impracticable, especially dur ing seeding and harvest time." "These periods are limited, and if they are not taken the utmost advan tage of, serious loss results, not only to the farmer; but to the whole State. "It is only just that competent men should receive a reasonable wage for these seasons of the year, when so much depends upon his services, but a day of eight hours Avould be unreasonable. ? "The members also think that 25s. . per week for ploughmen, and' a £1 for general farm hands are fair rates. For horse drivers, 48 hours per week is considered fair, provided the time is to be put in on the seat of. the plough or machine, as the case may lie, without adding the time occupied in feeding or cleaning."

KELVIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911

KELVIN. The secretary reports: - "Our branch considers that the rates of pay of the R.W.U., as applied to wheat-growing and general farm hands, are not: too high for compe tent men, but each year the wheat growers are compelled to instruct fully 75 per. cent, of the men em ployed by them before they can do the work required; and of these 75 per cent., fully 50 per cent, are men who know absolutely nothing about farming. What becomes of those men so instructed next year ? Well, any man who thinks lie has a grasp of the work required on a farm pro ceeds to get a farm of his own, or on the share system. Thus, another - farmer comes into the field as an employer, to absorb the remainder of the competent men, and so the ^em ployment of farm hands goes on, the established man being always under the necessity of teaching new men the trade, so to speak. The xi.W.U. dos not take any cognisance of this necessity. "Then, again, there is the ques tion of hours in harvest time. We would be quite...
