An Inuendo. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911
An Inueiido. A poultry-raiser writes the Tweed press complaining of the ai-bitrary methods of the Shire Council, and says: "I just want to say this, that if the extension of that Act is going to interfere with my raising of the clvookey hen, then I shall have to go out of the thing, and take to pumpkin growing, and have one or more of those councillors beheaded to get the seeds."
IMMIGRATION. The People We Want. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911
IMMIGRATION. i 1 The People We Want. I Mr. John Wetherspoon, of "Glen coe," New England, writes:-"Ob 'viously one' of the--mo9t important questions in the State, and in the Commonwealth to-day, is that of immigration. The suggestions put forth by tke Hon. Minister for Agri culture, some time ago had a certain bearing upon the question, but he gave no solution to the matter as it stands. The problems so clearly worked out on paper, are sometimes unworkable when put into practice, and hence we have to take actualities, and not suppositions, in dealing with the important question of immigra tion The history of this country does not bear out the assertion that artisans are not suitable to face the difficulties of pioneering life in Aus tralia. Many of the men who write on this subject seem to know as much about .it as .the pigmies of Central. Africa. If some of these gentlemen looked up the history of the past, they "would find that many of the first settlers, in this fair land, were me...

THE GROWERS' VIEW. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911
THE GROWERS' VIEW. In tlie discussion re laxity in for warding samples, frequent references were made to tlie indisposition of the farmers to forward samples to the cnamber, and Mr. Campbell was in vited to give his view as to how the request for samples is regarded by the farmers. He pointed out that tnis matter has received considera tion at various conferences of nie Farmers and bettlers' Association, and that the feeling among the far mers undoubtedly is that the fixing of the f.a.q. standard is detrimental to their interests, particularly of that section of the growers who take par ticular care in growing, and in so tar as is possible, grading their wheat and keeping it up to a high stan dard. He could say that the opposi tion to the system came largely from the best growers, and several of the men he could name who ranked among the growers of the best wheat in New South Wales instanced tnat they could not command any more for the best samples than they could obtain for the ord...
A CHAMBER OF COMMERCE EXPLANATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911
A CHAMBER OF COMMERCE EXPLANATION. At the Dry Farming Conference, held in Sydney last July, Mr. J. M. Paxton put the ease for an f.a.q. standard as it presents itself to the Grain Section of the Chamber of Commerce, and it may be usetul to now repeat in part what he then said. If there were no wheat for export there would be no necessity for a standard being fixed. The necessity .for the standard is not to enable you to sell your wheat at all, but to en able the exporters who purchase the wheat from you to sell to the buyers on the markets of the world. The buyers there had no doubt some voice in fixing the principle in dealing with Australian wheat in the early days. Having adopted the standard in the other exporting States, we had of necessity to fall in line. This is so from the all-important reason that it is not what we want, but what tne buyers want. If we wanted to im port something, we describe the ar ticle which is required, and expect to get it, nor will we have anything e...
HOW MILLERS REGARD THE SYSTEM. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911
HOW MILLERS REGARD THE SYSTEM. "As far as New South Wales is concerned," said a leading miller to ''a) ' Land" interviewer, " I don't see lvow any alteration can be made in the system unless it be made in the whole of the Australian States. The present system lia3 been the recog nised custom for a number of years here, and buyers in Great Britain insist on buying on a standard that they can rely on. There are so many different kinds of wheat grown here, and these get mixed, up in the car goes of loaded ships, so that a recog nised standard is the only basis mer chants and exporters will buy on,: because thek know that standard is fixed by the Chamber of Commerce. "As regards dealing in wheat on standards of 59, 60, 61, 62, and 631b. weight per bushel, it would be im possible to sell cargoes in this way, as the average of the whole lot would probably be only 611b. or 621b. per bushel. In fact,( if wheat were sold in this way 1 believe the result would be detrimental to the farming in...
THE SHIPPERS' ATTITUDE. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911
THE SHIPPERS' ATTITUDE. "1 do not think," said a member of one of the largest grain shipping Arms, that you can have any improvement on the existing system until there is a sufficient quantity of superior wheat produced to make the recog nition of grades commercially prac ticable. I can quite realise that a farmer who takes trouble to grow prime grain should feel it a handicap to receive 110 more for it than the man who either grows an inferior grain or who markets it in a dirty condition. But the shippers' diffi culty is that, having to do his busi ness oil a bulk scale, he must ac commodate himself to the require ments of the oversea buyer. The jinglish operator, for instance, wants to buy Australian wheat ; he hasn't time to bother witii this or that variety-he wants wheat. And in order that he may deal by cable he must have a general standard of quality fixed-hence the f.a.q. "Now, a cargo is made up of wheat of varying quality, and so long as the average is about up to the stan...
Shire and Municipality The Elections. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911
II Shire and Municipality II = = "The Land" will welcome discussion upon matters specially affecting shires and country municipali ties, and jyill as far as . possible, furnish specific infirmation in answer to questions. The Elections. The triennial elections are over. As a Kile ' there were 'plenty of canui dates. The success of the .Labour Party at the late Federal and Estill later State elections inspired many of its adherents .with, a desire to Be come members of their local parlia ment. In some cases the laDOur or ganisations met and selected candi dates to stand in the interests of Labour, and a real test of party strength in the district took place. It is now generally known that their efforts, which were to be deplored, were almost entirely unsuccessful. Without having the full figures be fore us, it would be impossible to say to what extent or in what propor tion was this the case ; suffice it to say that our opinion is that the electors, though not altogether satis fied i...
Apathy of Electors. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911
Apathy of Electors. The recent elections have shown gene rally that from 30'to GO per cent, of the electors on the rolls voted, but from Warialda, we learn that only 14 persons took the trouble to vote, out of 157 names on the roll. If the vote taken was under the referendum previsions of the Act, for some sim ple object, such as changing the name of the district, probably a 50 per cent, vote would have been recorded; whereas the mush larger and more responsible matter of electing their representatives to sit for three years did not cause them much concern.
RAILWAY GOODS SHED SALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911
RAILWAY GOODS SHED SALES. It is claimed for the railway mar ket, which still goes by the old name of Redfern, that it is the scene of fiercer and keener competition than can be found in any other trading centre in the metropolis. It is fur ther claimed for this Redfern railway market that the consigning farmer is on top all the time. The auction eers, of whom there are some twenty in regular harness, vie most keenly with each other in the effort to make the best deal for their respective clients; in fact, two or three of them may be working all they know for one and the same client; and it is because the farmer, 'cuter man than he is often credited with being, adopts the plan here indicated, of finding out who is the best salesman, that the auctioneers strain every nerve, and some other things besides, to ensure that the best price going shall be obtained for their client, by themselves. Under the circumstances, therefore, it is not surprising to find that the competition in the bus...
General Produce. IN SUSSEX STREET. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911
General Produce. IN SUSSEX STREET. Wheaten Chaff.-The quantity of choice wneaten chaff coming forward is very small, and in comparison with prime and good, is realising a price not actually proportionate to the feeding qualities of the product. For instance, good to prime wheaten chaff is selling from 3/9 to 4/1, and choice realises 4/5 to 4/7. Inferior and medium qualities are extremely hard to dispose of, and this is more especially the case if the cutting of the same is rough through not hav ing been carefully attended to. Chaff containing black oats and barley grass is extremely difficult to dispose of, owing to the effects of the late bene ficial rains, which have stimulated a good growth of grass in the metro politan and adjacent districts. Oaten Chaff.-Choice qualities are selling at 3/9 to 4/, with a little more occasionally for lots "extra special," but the medium sorts, owing to the heavy shipments of oaten chaff from other States, have not been reaching remunerative rates...
DAIRY LINES. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911
DAIRY LINES. Butter.-The market maintains its level at 90/, and there is not so much buying for export. It ia anticipated that with the lower values in Lon don, and an increasing production, prices will have a set back in the near future. Arrivals in London last week were over 3000 tons, and this week a still larger quantity is due. The total shipments since 1st July, 1910, are 28,853 tons, which compare with 19,887 tons up to a similar point last season. This is an increase of 8966 tons. There is also a surplus from New Zealand, and it is there fore, not hard to understand why prices in London this season are so much lower than last. Prices are: First grade, 90/; good to medium, 86/ to 88/; secondary, 80/ to 83/; pastry, 70/. There is a plentiful sup ply of second quality butter and pastry sorts on this market, chiefly the product of private separators. Bacon.-Prime factory sides, 6%d to 7d; flitches, 7d to 7Vad. Hams.-Very little demand. Bacon hams, 8d to SV!>d, prepared lOd to...
Disputed Elections. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911
Disputed Elections. In several instances there are ru mours of threatened actions to oust successful candidates at the late elec tions. Among others, we hear of one where the validity of the elec tion is to be tested on account of a number of electors having voted who are under the age of 21 years. Ques tions of this nature have arisen be fore, and the Supreme-Court has re fused to constitute itself a revision court, and decide whether the roll is correct or not. Provision is made in the Ordinances whereby any person whose name is on the list, or who is claiming to have his name inserted thereon, may object to any person's name being retained in such list, and if any name is irregularly thereon, by being under age, or other, sufficient reason, we contend that the revision court is the only place, whereby the list may be amended or corrected. The lists, so the Act says, "shall, when revised and signed by the revi sion court, be the rolls of electors." In another case litigation is th...
