BULK HANDLING OF WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 7 February 1906

BULK HANDLING OF WHEAT. Mr. John O'Neil, of Corowa, writes : — The ruling rates for cornsacks supplied to farmers in the height of the season means that the farmers of New South Wales will this year pay out about £200,000 for sacks for which they will get practically no return ; in other words, at current rates for sacks and wheat, the farmer gives away 60 bags of every thou sand bags he sells — he gets paid for 60 bags per thousand less than his American competitor would be paid. This is an un- fair handicap ; it is unnecessary ; it is wasteful ; it allows of our farmers being made the scapegoat of gamblers on the Calcutta jute market; and why? Simply because our own grain operators are wedded to the obsolete bagged wheat sys- tem, which has been abolished in all the grain exporting countries of the world in favour of bulk handling. There is absolutely no sound reason why we should not have bulk handling in these States. Victoria sent Mr. James Sinclair, a practical farmer (late co...

MR. T. I. CAMPBELL'S EVIDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 7 February 1906

MR. T. I. CAMPBELL'S EVIDENCE. 'I desire to point out a further disa- bility attaching to settlers in applying for land. These "Gazette" notifications show the land available. for settlement — this is the information placed before settlers when making their applications, and upon which their applications must be based. The blocks available are set out, together with the farm number, the capital and   annual value, the survey fee and the esti- annual value of improvements. Your     Honor will see that the survey fee is care- fully worked out to a shilling, and that being so, one would think there should be no difficulty in valuing the improve- ments to the incoming man from the   settlement point of view. By way of ex- ample, let me refer to settlement lease area No. 673: The value of the improve ments on farm No. 267 is put down at £690. That amount was reduced by the local Land Board to £158. On farm No. 269, the Crown improvement...

LANDS COMMISSION JOTTINGS. EXCERPTS FROM FARMERS' AND SETTLERS' STATEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 7 February 1906

LANDS COMMISSION   JOTTINGS. EXCERPTS FROM FARMERS' AND   SETTLERS' STATEMENTS.             "The debates in Parliament immedia-   tely prior to the passing of the 1884 Land Act went to show that the destiny of New South Wales was other than making and keeping it as one great sheepwalk, and the spirit of all land legislation was to provide for the re- quirements of permanent residential set- tlement and to offer inducements to   would-be settlers to immigrate and assist in the development of the colony. "The main feature of the 1884 Land Act was the attempt to provide for the diverse interests or the pastoral lessee and the selector by the division of the Crown lands, included in each pastoral holding, the consolidation of alienated lands, and   fixity of tenure for the leasehold area. In a Parliament largely representative of squatting intere...

MOREE. No Wheat for Samples.— Those Wanting Land. — Trucking Yards.— Sheepfeed- ing Experiment. The members of the local branch met on 8th instant, there being present : — Messrs. W.

Referring to a request 'rom Sydney Chamber of Commerce requesting sam- ples of local wheat for fixing wheat stan- ards, Mr. Cory said he had got nine bags only from 36 acres, and he thought most of the wheat crops were failures. It was resolved to reply that there was no wheat in the district available this   season. It was resolved to reply to the Intellig- ence Department's circular re census of those wanting land, pointing out that there were sufficient applicants for land to swallow up all the land available, and

Messrs. Cross, Bramma, and Woods were appointed sub- committee to draft the reply. The Railway Commissioners, through Mr Jones, M.P., wrote stating inability to comply with request of the Association re water for Moree trucking yards, but pro- missing to give the matter attention on their next visit. It was pointed out by Messrs. Cory and Scott that there was no water for 35 miles along the road from Terry-hie-hie to Moree, and if rain did not fall in sufficient quantities to fill the water holes it would be impossible for persons to bring stock to Moree for trucking, unless water was laid on to the yards. It was resolved to thank Mr. Jones for his efforts on this behalf, and to request him to lose no op- portunity in pressing their claims. Some discussion took place concerning ...

CREDITING RAILWAY ACCOUNT WITH INCREASED VALUE OF CROWN LANDS. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 7 February 1906

CREDITING RAILWAY ACCOUNT WITH INCREASED VALUE OF CROWN LANDS. To the Editor. Sir, — A proposal to the above effect was submitted to a Conference of the Farmers' and Settlers' Association some years ago at Wagga Wagga by Mr. W. Weisner, of Henty. Whether the proposal was carried by the Conference on its first introduction I cannot now remember, but it has since become part of the policy of the Associa- tion. That the matter has not received more consideration on the part of coun- try people, and especially those who fre- quently use our railways, is only one more proof of the supine indifference of the av- erage country folk to most of the ques- tions which intimately effect their every- day life and prospects. While the Rail- way Commissioners are saddled with the task of making the railways pay, or as nearly pay as they can, interest on the   full outlay in all railway extension and im- provement being set off against the re- turns derived, no account is taken of the ...

From the Pastoralists' statements. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 7 February 1906

'From the Pastoralists' Statements.   (It is reported that a well-known land agent and politician was engaged by the pastoralists to prepare their statement in reply to the Farmers' and Settlers' As- sociation evidence placed before the Royal Commission. It is said that the fees paid by the pastoralists amounted to several hundreds of pounds, and that the reply took three weeks to prepare. A feature of the pastoralists' statement was the thinly-veiled effort to embroil the con- tending parties by reviving the differen- ces that existed during the administration of the 1861 Act.) "Hundreds of men took advantage of the provisions of a law designed to afford them an opportunity of securing homes     for themselves, abusing the opportu- nity by selecting certain stra- tegic positions on a run, not with the slightest intention of permanently settling there, but with the clear knowledge that the very location of their holding would force the runholde...

All that they asked for, he took it, was that wire net- ting should be supplied at a reasonable cost, with time to pay for those holders who were not in a position to pay cash. They did not desire to pay the price exacted by a ring. It was also a fact that in consequence of a large demand for wire netting the prices had been rais- ed, and were being raised day by day. There was a very strong ring in Sydney, and he noticed the price of wire netting was going up daily. The President said all the farmers ask- ed was a fair price, with easy terms of payment for those not in a position to pay cash. Mr. Doyle spoke to the same effect. After all, he said, it was only human na- ture to raise the price under the circum- stances, but he blamed the Government for not coming to the assistance of the farmers.

Flowers about the Homestead. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 7 February 1906

Flowers about the Homestead. Few things will make a home home-like so much as the presence of a few flowers. Even a slab hut, if covered by a free growing climber, becomes a thing of beauty. Men and women grown to old age speak lovingly of the garden of child hood's days, and the sight and scent of the old familiar flowers never fail to awak- en long buried recollections. * * * It is, perhaps, not too much to say that the love of flowers is universal. The rich man lavishes money and the attention of skilled horticulturists upon the occupants of his glass houses, while the poor man, unable to reach the higher altitude of the wealthy, indulges his fancy by laying out and planting his own cottage garden, thus finding healthy and cheerful occupa- tion, and beautifying his surroundings. * * * Lord Roseberry, visiting Sydney Govern ment House, and viewing its matchless surroundings, where the hand of man, taking advantage to the full of natural opportunities, had gathered trees and shrubs...
