Committees. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911
Committees. Hay Council, at last meeting, de cided, that as the Finance Commit tee went out of office on 27th in stant, the members be asked to re main in office until their successors were appointed. This step was en tirely unnecessary, as the Ordinance provides that every standing commit tee shall hold office until the first meeting of its successor. Such com mittees shall be appointed or elected annually, as soon as practicable after the annual election of the President.
Election of Mayor. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911
Election of Mayor. A paragraph in one. of our country exchanges, dated February 1, says: "First. Mayoral clction takes place at Forbes. Aid. J. Edwards has been elected Mayor of Forbes." At first sight this looks like a very illegal act, electing a Mayor on the 31st January, but on enquiry we find that .the election, was: to fill an .extra ordinary vacancy in that office, in consequence of the retiring Mayor not being now a member of the Coun cil. So that Aid. Edwards only holds office until the 28ffh February, unless elected at another meeting, to be i.xayor for 14)11-12.
CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911
CATTLE. There Avere 1981 listed for sale, from 82 consignors, and 1969 were submitted, including about 600 cows and 50 vealers and yearlings. The major portion came from the north and north-western districts, with a few from the west and south. The latter were chiefly coast dairy cows, in low condition. Taken throughout, the yardings-comprised a, splendid rep resentation of good useful bullocks and steers. With the exception of the dairy lines, the cows showed bet ter quality than the bullocks. Buyers were largely represented, and all useful lines met with ready competition, at Monday's reduced values. Best beef may be quoted at from 20/ to 21/ per lOOlbs., with the fair quality cheaper. A few extra prime bullocks and cows from Bourke district commanded most attention. The bullocks averaged £10/8/, and 12 cows £7/15/8, easily topping the market. Quotations: Extra prime bullocks to £11/11/, prime £8 to £10, good trade, £6/10/ to £7/10/; steers, best weights, £6 to £7/10/; light from ...
The Rolls. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911
The Rolls. Ill many sliires complainiisive been made about persons' names hav ing been left of the rolls prepared for the recent elections. Consider able time was spent at last meeting of Manning Shire Council, discussing tne question. It seems that the Council did not appoint a roll col lector, neither did it appoint the Clerk to be the collector, so far as we are aware, and consequently it devolved on him to obtain the in formation as to who should go on the electors5 list as best he could. The Ordinance (14, 12) provides that in making out the list, the Clerk shall have regard to (among other things), "the valuation and rate-book or books kept as prescribed," Natu rally, many alterations would tabe place in connection with the owners and occupiers of property, since those books were written up, and of which the Clerk would not be cogni sant.

Councils' Officials. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911
Councils' Officials. Mr. John Fraser, Town Clerk, of Nowra, stated at a dinner given by the Mayor of that municipality, that Nowra was at the bottom of the State in regard to administrative expenses, and at the top in expendi ture on works-that was speaking relatively. Mr. Williamson, Town Clerk of Prospect and Sherwood, has been pre senter by the aldermen, with an en grossed address, in appreciation of the value of his work in placing the Council's books in good condition, and materially reducing the large amount of arrears owing. The Cabramatta and Canley Vale Council presented a testimonial to their Clerk (Mr. W. J. Johnson) as an expression of their high opinion of his ability and industry in carry ing out his duties. A District Shires' Engineers' Asso ciation is about to be formed in Cootamundra.

No Nominations at Balranald. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911
No Nominations at Balranald. What's tki matter at Balranald? some-might ask. -Not single nomi nation was received in connection with cue late triennial election. The ?last meeting of the council was held on 10th January, four aldermen were present, and it was generally under stood that they intended to stand down and give an opportunity to others to form a strong council. Last year, the Government had a receiver in possession, owing to the neglect of the council to pay the sums overdue in connection with their water sup ply. This practically took the spend ing-power out of the council's hands, and it has remained so ever since. The ' affairs of the municipality have not been in a satisfactory con dition for a long time. The Depart ment has been insisting on knowing what the council has done about the auditor's suggestions in respect of accounts for 1909-10. The Mayor reported that the auditor had found that last year's correspondence had been eaten with white ants, which was no faul...

Triennial Elections. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911
Triennial Elections. Alderman Luseombe, who lias been a member of the JVIuswellbrook Coun cil for 19 years, considers it a mis take that all the aldermen under the present Act had to retire simultane ously; the old way of retiring yearly in batches was preferable; because if it ever happened that nine men en tirely new to aldermanic work were returned, they would simply have to depend upon the officials for guidance. Is not that the case under any cir cumstances? The officials must al ways guide the councils, and alviwc them as to the many intricacies of the Local Government Act, etc. If they are not able to do this, then they should be displaced, and make room for those who are capable of doing so.
A New Interpretation. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911
A New Interpretation. A candidate for election to the Woodburn Sliire Council, is reported to have said that "the Shire Cham bers were illegally in Coraki. Tho Act says where a shire has a town ship within its boundary containing a bank and a post-oflice, the shire chambers must be in that township." This is something new, and lest our readers should consider this is cor rect, we say that the Act spys no thing of the sort. Section 73r!(v) says that shire councils may acquire the power of "maintenance of oll'ces for the transaction of the council's busi ness, such power may be exercised with respect to oflices outside tne shire, where the council so decides, etc."

Health Matters. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911
Health Matters. A fish vendor lias been fined 40s. and costs, in Grafton, for not keeping his premises in a sanitary condition. The evidence showed that the defen dant's yard was found to be strewn with fish heads, scales, guts, . fowl heads and feathers. There were also three other boxes in the yard, full of fish guts and decayed vegetable mat ter, uncovered from which a very offensive smell was produced. The boxes had been there for three days, and the insanitary conditions of the place were a nuisance to the neigh bourhood. Such premises as these require constant watchfulness on the part of the Council's inspectors.
The Market Mirror WOOL. THE GENERAL POSITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911
- -o a The Market Mirror i WOOL. THE GENERAL POSITION. Substantial catalogues and. good, average selections have been sub mitted to buyers this week, arid with Melbourne and Geelong now out of the running, except for a few clear in0'-up sales next week, Sydney has hall the field to itself. The buying strength has been augmented by a number of operators from the Vic torian capital, and values have ruled well up to the highest point since the December close for greasy wools. Scoured fleece wool, which is rather plentiful in Melbourne, as well as Sydney, has not been m such good request; but pieces and locks have, like greasies, been in strong demand at late full rates. The buying strength has been con centrated in the Yorkshire and Con tinental sections. America has not been in the running, and the Japan ese section has not been s® active as Svhen wool was cheaper than it is to-day. The Japanese buyers, like the Yorkshire representatives, took advantage of an artificial position, so f...
Federal Territory. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911
Federal Territory. The Under-Secretary has informed the Town Clerk of Queanbeyan, that the effect of the enactment of the Commonwealth Seat of Government Acceptance Act, 1900, and the Com monwealth Seat of Government (Ad ministrative) Act, 1910, is to include the land comprised in the transferred territory from the operation of any of the provisions of the Local Go vernment Act. The council, therefore has, in the opinion of the department, no power to expend its funds on any works situated in the territory, nor has any person who previously held qualification as an elector in respeet to any land situated in the territory a right to vote at elections in respect of that qualification. One of the results following on the acquisition of the capital site by the Federal Government, will be the effacement of the Queanbeyan muni cipality, and also a large portion of the Narrolumla Shire. It is proposed to cut up the remnan-t of the Yarro lumla Shire, between all or some of the adjoining shi...
MAGISTRATES AND RABBITS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911
MAGISTRATES AND RABBITS Editor "The Land".-Your para graph headed "Wagga Indignant" is one that calls for comment. Picture to yourself that poor unfortunate pastoralist . liarrassed during shear ing time by that dreadful ogre, the rabbit inspector, and after the case being proved, the Magistrate address ing him sympathetically: "I shall1 only fine you £1, as I consider it a shame you should be harassed dur ing shearing time." How pathetic? But let us carry the picture a little farther. Suppose this pastoralist was also a wheat-grower. Of course, it would be equally a shame to harass him during cropping or harvesting time. So that according to this ma gistrate's reasoning, there would be over six months during each year that a landowner growing wheat and wool should be sacred from the rude intrusions of rabbit inspectors. One would naturally think that a gentle man holding the position of Police Magistrate would have brains enough to know that, if a landowner destroyed his rabbits du...

The consignments were principally from the north and north west, with a few from the west and south-west. The condition, taken throughout, was from good trade to prime. Extra prime were in light supply, as were also the inferior. Buyers were in full attendance. Exporters Avere well represented. The market was very firm for prime qua lity at advanced values. A few ex tra prime merinos, from the Yass dis trict, topped the market at 19/1. Prime stock made from 14/ to 16/, good from 11/, others from 6/ up wards.

A few extra prime me rino ewes sold to 15/, prime from 12/; good made from 9/, light and ...
WHEAT. UNSATISFACTORY MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911
WHEAT. UNSATISFACTORY MARKETS. The wheat markets have continued in a very unsatisfactory condition, the general situation suiting neither buyers, sellers, nor shippers. If one was to ask a shipper what lie made of the market, the answer returned, in all probability would be that he was hanged if he could find any mar ket at all, as far as cargoes were concerned. "How can I go on opera tin""'' he would likely enough con tinue, "when there is absolutely no backing behind English^ buyers ? _ And this has been one of the chief troubles in the shipping section, for English buyers have been confining their purchasing to immediate wants, and practically nothing else. Just latterly cables have advised a rather better inquiry for Australian car "*ogs find parcels, but the l^nglisli and. Continental markets continue very touchy, and any pressure to sell has the effect of making buyers on the other side sliow a masterful letieat. Consequently exporting here has dragged on slowly. Furthermore, ...
AGENTS' REPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911
AGENTS' REPORTS. Messrs. Winchcombe, Carson, Ltd., report:-"A very animated market has been, experienced in Sydney dur ing the week. Prices have ruled very firm,, especially for good wools, and it does not seem likely that there will be any change in the values of such grades in the near future. The season is likely to close with a well sustained demand, for better grades of merino. "Short staple and faulty wools are not so well, competed for, and have not recovered from the fall regis tered on the 16th January, to the same extent as the better grades have done. ' "Taken all round, there is: very general competition, and all sections of the trade are competing eagerly. Even from America a few orders are available. The limited demand for wool from the United States has been one of the greatest disappointments of the present season." The Australasian Mortgage, Loan and Finance Co., Ltd., report:-The wool sales have been continued dur ing the week under very satisfactory conditions for...
