ADMINISTRATION OF THE LAND LAW. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 19 September 1874

ADMINISTRATION OF THE LAND LAW. No.IV. (From the Sydney Mail.) MR. FITZPATRICK, when asked whether he had any idea of what this dummyism is, to which objection is made, replied :— "The word has passed through two or three stages. When first used it meant a selection made by a squatter in a wholly fictitious name. I am informed by high authorities out of doors that ' dummyism ' in the present day means such selection as came before   the public in the Barton v. Muir case, that is, selection by an agent, who is expected at a certain period to make over the land to his principal. I   am aware that this system of ' dummyisim' is carried to a great extent, much to the loss, as it would seem now, of those who adopt it. That has arisen from the changeful way in which our land law has been administered in regard to for- feited selections. When ' dummyism ' was first started in this country, the squatters who resorted to it believed they were securing the land from ...

ANNUAL STOCK REPORT-SHEEP. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 19 September 1874

ANNUAL STOCK REPORT—SHEEP.         The Chief Inspector reports the total number of sheep in New South Wales to be 18,717,648. He says :—The official returns show that, not- withstanding the large numbers of sheep killed for home consumption and for preserving at the various establishments now at work in the dif- ferent colonies, there was an increase in the number of sheep in the colony in 1873 compared with 1872 of 1,116,899. This increase arises partly from the stocking of new country, but prin- cipally from the improvement of the carrying capabilities of the runs by fencing and water- making—especially by fencing; and as these   improvements are every year becoming more general we may expect that the increase which has again fairly commenced will be a steadily progressive one. In the foregoing general total of the whole number of sheep, something over a quarter of a million (264,000) of them are coarse- woolled or l...

REJECTION OF THE COMPULSORY EDUCATION BILL. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 19 September 1874

REJECTION OP THE COMPULSORY EDUCATION BILL. THE debate on the Elementary Education (Com- pulsory Attendance) Bill yesterday afternoon revealed a wonderful advance of opinion on its principle, in comparison with which the division that followed is of the smallest possible impor- tance. The title of the Bill showed that the object of its promoters was to bring some coercive machinery to bear on negligent parents, so as to compel them to send their children to some eificient school ; and of the thirteen members who joined in the debate, two only objected to the principle of the proposal. All the others agreed that recourse must be had to compulsion to attain the objects we all desire, and that the time had come for its application. The single topic of dispute was.the best machinery to secure the ends desired, and upon this point there was, without a doubt, a considerable divergence of opinion. The Bill proposed the establishment of School Boards throughout the country, which should be ...

PEARLS AND PEARL DIVING IN THE SOUTH PACIFIC. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 19 September 1874

PEARLS AND PEARL DIVING IN THE SOUTH PACIFIC.           THE Paumotus have been for years famed for producing mother-o'-pearl shells, and large for- tunes have been made by Europeans in fitting out " shelling '' expeditions to collect the pearl oyster for trade purposes. This article of commerce was never so high in price as at this moment for the mail just brings in accounts of sales having been made for the Australian white edge at £190 up to £330 per ton, and for Tahiti and Panama from £60 up to £90 per ton. A few years ago, the latter were only worth £20 and £30 per ton. These shells are principally obtained by natives diving for them ; but it is intended shortly to place the enterprise on a surer basis by employing men with the diving apparatus, when greater results will follow. There are comparatively few natives in the South Seas good divers. The best a few years ago came from the island of Rapa (Oparo), lying to...

SOWING FLOWER SEEDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 26 September 1874

SOWING FLOWER SEEDS. We are continually hearing the cry, " Why don't my flowers come up ? The seeds are of no ac- count. The seedsman has cheated me," &c. We generally listen to such complaints with as much grace as we have, knowing all the time that the fault is generally, not in the seed, or the seeds- man, but in tne would-be cultivator. The princi- pal reasons, " why the seed will not come up " are :—   1. The ground is not of the right kind, or has not been properly prepared. 2. There is not warmth enough to cause the seed to sprout. 3. The seeds were planted too deep. But very often the seeds sprout, and yet the little plants fail to grow and mature. The following are the reasons :—   1. The ground as before, is not of the right kind, or is lumpy, or otherwise in poor condition. 2. The ground dries and bakes in the sun, whereby the delicate plants are dried up, and destroyed. 3. The plants, if covered with glass, are per- mitted to get too hot...

No title [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 26 September 1874

One of the most important, and to most of our readers one of the most interesting cases of litigation which has occurred in connection with the Crown Lands Alienation Act of 1861, passed through its preliminary investi- gation at the Burrowa District Court on Monday last. A resumé of the whole case may be given as follows :—About 80 years   ago, Mr. John Donald Macansh undertook the management of a squattage which had come into the possession of Messrs. Flower, Salting, and Co., of Sydney. Under his able management run after run was added to the estate of his employers, until the principality in the possession of the owners of the famous S. K. S. brand, had become proverbial for its size, its excellent grazing capacity, and the superior stud sheep raised upon their estate. As soon as the purchase of Crown Lands in the unsettled districts was permitted, Mr. Macansh, on behalf of his employers, largely availed himself of the privilege, and secured for them about 20,000 ac...
