STUMP EXTRACTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 28 February 1906

STUMP EXTRACTION. A machine lias just been introduced by Messrs. Trewhella Bros., of Victoria, for grubbing trees, stumps, roots, etc., which promises to find much favor with those who have lands to clear; in is, in fact, already being . extensively used through out the Commonwealth. The mode of 'action with the 'Trewhella Jack' is de scribed as very, simple and effective, re quiring no horse power to work it, and yet being capable of exerting* a lifting power of several tons by the labor of one man. We have seen some of the testi monials received by the firm ' from pur chasers, all of which speak in the highest terms of the utility and. effectiveness of the machines. An advertisement relating thereto appears in another column.

A LESSON IN ARTESIAN BORES. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 28 February 1906

A LESSON IN ARTESIAN BORES. Says the Warren 'Herald' : — An extra ordinary and most interesting develop ment of the question of the failure of bores has taken place at Haddon Rig. A bore there, of the depth of 1146 feet, began to give out, the flow diminishing till it ran only i£ inch over the piping. The station wisely determined to sink deener. Messrs. Macrae and Co. were engaged to perform the work, and Mr. Beauchamp was given its charge. The result has proved most gratifying, five feet of silt was found in- the pipe, and, at 1560 feet, a flow estimated at half a million gallons per diem was encounter ed, which runs 10 inches over the piping. It is purposed to sink another 200 feet, when it is hoped that a really big flow will be struck. Five inch has been placed within the original six-indi piping. The country is indebted to Haddon Rig for a. most significant object lesson.'

THE F.A.Q. STANDARD. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 7 March 1906

THE F.A.Q. STANDARD. . By J. O'Neill. The fixing of the F.A.Q. Standard at (j^lbs. per bushel has caused widespread dissatisfaction in the grain districts, and it is time steps were taken to put the business on a more satisfactory footing. Agricultural Societies have failed to rise to the occasion, therefore it behoves the farmers1 and settlers to take the matter up, and it is nothing but right they should take a live interest in that which so in timately concerns them. The best plan to adopt would be to have a Saturday night in the wheat sea son set apart for fixing the standard in each district. The members of the sev eral branches could bring, or send, a fair sample of their whole crop : then let the whole of the individual samples be mixed together. in the. meeting room,, and a bushel measure filled there and then and weighed and recorded. This bushel, or half bushel as the case may be, to be sent to the Department of Agriculture direct. The Department, through the Board of Expo...

THE WORK AHEAD. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 7 March 1906

THE WORK AHEAD. Writing from the West, a farmer says : — 'I wish to say that I hail with delight the issue of 'The Farmer and Settler.' I have long thought there is room for a paper devoted to farming and grazing in terests. Hitherto there has been lack ing a medium for circulating the views and advancing the interests of the farm ers and smaller graziers, although one publication 'gossips' a good deal about it. I hope 'The Farmer and Settler' will educate the country people up to the duty they owe their country, themselves, and their families; that it will plainly show them where their interests' are being neglected, the handicaps under which they labour, and last2 but not least, im- . press them with their voting strength — their power to remedy these evils. The man on the land cannot march under the banner of the Labor party; neither can he sail with the extremists among the large landholders. But between these ex tremes is a broad open road, along which I hope 'The Farmer and Se...

Willis Re-arrested in Natal. FRESH WARRANTS FROM SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 7 March 1906

Willis Re-annested in Natal. FRESH WARRANTS FROM SYDNEY. The Attorney-General on Saturday re ceived a cable from Natal intimating that W. N. Willis has been re-arrested. The information contained in the cable was : — ''''Willis re-arrested ; remanded for a week.' Beyond that Mr. Wade had no knowledge, excent that the. now develon ment had arisen out of directions given by the Crown law authorities. For three weeks, he said, the negotiations had been carried on, and though he anticipated Willis's re-arrest, he did not know the nature of the charge preferred against him. The appeal in the case was sustained on a point arising out of the jurisdiction of the magistrate before whom it was tried. It is presumed in legal circles that the defect disclosed has been covered by an Order-in-Council, and the charges pre ferred were identified with those upon which the previous proceedings were based. The negotiations have included a good deal of cable correspondence with the Imperial authorities...

A CARPING CRITIC. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 7 March 1906

A CARPING CRITIC. (By ' Wombat.') The 'Temora Independent' hazards the opinion that the ' Farmer and Set tler' would prove of benefit to the far mers, 'if run on independent democratic lines.' which means in this particular instance, that it should sacrifice its in dependence as the official organ of rhe ?; man on the land,'' and pander to the Labor party. Should the 'banner and Settler' fail to do this and refuse to take advice from the Temora oracle, the early doom of the Association is confi dently predicted. One can imagine the satisfaction of the 'great man' as he signed the death warrant of the farmers' paper ! It is difficult to see how the ' Farmer and Settler' could consistent ly ' barrack' for the socialistic crowd - l on any lines, and at the same time pose ' 1 as the champion of the farmers' cause. W Certain individuals can do these strange ? contortions, but then the ''Farmer an.d m Settler' has no axe to grind; it hasn't 1 one eye on Parliament and the other on 'I the ...

THE MINISTER FOR LANDS ON CLOSER SETTLEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 7 March 1906

THE MINISTER FOR LANDS ON CLOSER SETTLEMENT. During an important deliverance at In verell Show luncheon' on the subject of closer settlement. Mr. Ashton, Minister for Lands, said: — lie was speaking with out the slightest trace of heat or bias when he said that he was perfectly cer lain that the sentiment among all classes of the community in favor of closer set tlement was so strong that the holders of large areas would not be able to keep them out of use very much longer. Steps were sure to be taken, whether of a quiet, pacific character, or a character going somewhat beyond the bounds of modera tion, to bring about the multiplication of settlers in close proximity to the country towns and to the main trunk railway lines. Me hoped that the Government would be able to facilitate the work of subdivision : but. after all-, the purchase of land was not the best method of promoting closer settle ment. It involved the Crown in great risks. If the Crown in purchasing a large estate made ...

"WOMBAT" versus WATSON. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 7 March 1906

'WOMBAT' versus WATSON. (To the Editor.) Sir, — Your correspondent 'Wombat,' in your issue of February 21st, fears the ad vent to power of a Federal Labor Min istry, on account of landholders having to bear extra taxation — presumably progres sive land taxation — the object being to break up large estates ; and he then pro ceeds to say that they are breaking up rapidly as it is, without resorting to a policy of confiscation. Now, does 'Wombat' own a large es tate, say, out Junee way ? or is he writing in a large estate-owner's interests? Will he inform me how it is that taxation in New Zealand is looked upon by some of the most conservative as an advantage ; and in regard to. the rapid subdivision that is. taking place, he may be able to state why' there were over 400 disappoint ed applicants at the Nouramie ballot. Also, why are scores of would-be settlers in New South Wales crossing over the border into Queensland ? — which by the way, is a much more Socialistic State than our squ...

LOCKED-UP LAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 7 March 1906

LOCKED-UP LAND. Speaking last week at the opening' of the Eccleston Show, Mr. W. Bennett, M.L.A., said there were 200,000 acres of land locked up in forest reserve in the Dungog and Allyn district, which should be thrown ooen for selection. It com prised rich bush land and sloping ridges, fit for agriculture and dairying1. The timber upon it was of little value. The reserve was only four miles off the pro posed North Coast Railway, and eight miles from Dungog. It would be rushed by settlers if thrown open. He advo cated the resumption of estates in the coastal districts near large centres of population* and with easy assess to mar ket, for closer settlement purposes, . and he said it was a national sin that the great North Coast districts were not granted, railway communication, with the metropolis.

LANDS ADMINISTRATION BY COMMISSION. IV. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 7 March 1906

LANDS ADMINISTRATION BY COMMISSION. IV. By E.B. 'Their habits of office are apt to give -? them a turn to think the substance of business not to be much more import ant than the forms in which it is con ducted.'-' — Burke. I have little more to say regarding the system which with but little variation has operated in the administration of our lands. It is only fair to acknowledge that at times, during periods of distress, when misfortune overcame a large num ber of honest and industrious settlers, the Department, by the measure of considera tion given to almost all deserving cases, certainly did get out of the old well-worn xruts along which departmental action has travelled so long, and a sincere effort was made to conserve the interests of all, and save many deserving settlers to the State. But approaching the matter broad ly, the quotation as given above, though taken from an utterance directed against an administration of over a century ago, seems peculiarly well suited to apply ...

SO-CALLED SOCIALISM. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 7 March 1906

SO-CALLED SOCIALISM. By ''Mentor.' It has become fashionable among sup erficial thinkers of late to regard Social ism as a noble ideal to be looked up to, much in the same manner as are the true principles of Christianity. Every move ment for the benefit of mankind, they say, is more or less socialistic, and they see no harm in a term which represents a condition of affairs in which each man shall have his just clue and there shall be comfort and happiness for everybody. Consequently, there is a disposition to view the socialistic aims of the Labor uartv with e-..'i.un.iritv. Xow. is the Aus tralian brand of Socialism ever likely to produce ?he Elysian state ? The so-called Labor party which we have represented in our Parliaments, Federal and State, has chosen to give its absolute adhesion to Trades Hall caucus dictation. And that dictation amounts to class tyranny of a pernicious and reactionary type. In the caucus deliberations the supposed in terests of a comparatively small numb...

MINERAL RESERVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 7 March 1906

MINERAL RE8ERVES. By Allan Ballard. Undoubtedly the great political prob lem of the hour is Land Settlement. Even the man in the street talks land, and though this awakening has come late it is better now than later. For years past our law-makers have been trying to prevent the aggregation of estates by dummying, and quite recently they have had clear proof of how the Im provement Lease Clause in the. Lands Act has been abused. But there is still an other system of land monopoly practised of which they seem entirely oblivious, and and that is the securing of whole funs by having the land gazetted as Mineral Reserve. That such reserves are very often made in the interest of the lessee, and hot in the miners' interest, no one need doubt. I saw a letter written by a run lessee in reply to a prospective buyer who had asked what purchase land there was with the holding, and it said : — 'There is no purchased land, but, what is bettor., thf whole of the run is secured as a Mineral Reserve...
