"HOW I VIEW THE DEMANDS OF THE R.W.U." [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 February 1911
"HOW I VIEW THE DEMANDS OF THE R.W.U." The' president of the. Glen Ihnes branch "(Mr. Herbert Osborne) writes: "Just at present the subject princi pally engaging the attention of the various branches of the F. and S. Association is the claims of the Ru ral Workers', Union. ..It; is evident that the scalc was, drawn up ..by people with the idea that by aiming at a star they .would shoot higher than if they aimed .lower. . If the rates as asked are confirmed by the Federal Arbitration Court, there is a good time ahead of the man. on the land. ' "Imagine what, chance a man .with practically no capital will have to commence, say, dairying. At present a man has to be a capitalist in a small way to comply with the "Dairies Su pervision Act,' and if further handi capped with the wages asked by the R.W.U., his start will be anything but rosy. The rates will not hit the estab lished man with an improved place and a banking account behind him, so hard, as lie will be able to trim his sails to...
JUTE GOODS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 February 1911
JUTE GOODS. The bad weather has rendered the demand for jute very quiet, but in most cases prices have been main tained at steady, levels. This has been due to the fact that the mar ket in Calcutta lias remained firm at rates very considerably above those ruling here. It has been persistently stated from Calcutta that there is rather a shortage of raw jute, but speculators there have a happy knack of smothering visible supplies, arid bringing them out later on, to gene ral upsetting of prices, that natural ly the trade here do not place too much faith in reports from that side at this period of the year. However, there is no question that prices have quietly improved in Calcutta. Wool packs have been cabled down at equal to 2/5% delivered here for season's shipments, and some buying has tak en place, though not much. There is a good quantity held on spot, and merchants have been buying these goods so that the market has lifted somewhat, and is now about 2/3% to 2/4. Cornsacks in Cal...
QUALITY OF WOOL PACKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 February 1911
QUALITY OF WOOL PACKS. The foreign and the English manu facturers never get tired advocating ' the use of a better class of woolpack. This is what they call the jute-in wool trouble. There is no doubt that some careless growers do pack their wool carelessly in old covers, but there is no encouragement to do any better. The large producers would be onlly too ready to fall in with the idea, if the buyers paid more for the wool, or made an allowance for a superior class of pack. This season, it was made plainly manifest that men who did use these better class coverings got not a penny more for their wool. They made a thor ough test, by using the newer style of packs and the old ones. The wool in the former was not even in better demand, proving that the grievance on the part of the manufacturers is more imaginary than real. General ly, when a proportion of wool is baled in expensive packs, it is only the lead ing lines that are so treated, while second qualities. and.,,faulty'; sorts g...

SHEEP-SICK COUNTRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 February 1911
SHEEP-SICK COUNTRY. At times country clevotecl to stock breeding: Avill become ???."sick." There are several causes to assign for it. One of tlie principal is overstocking. In a seas-on like the present, the land becomes -covered with a thick coat of verdure, tlie whole of which is of ten mistaken for fodder plants. Any botanist will tell yon that a good many of the plants have little or 110 nutritive .value., and some are inju rious. The thicker the coat of green, the more moisture is retained. In some parts of the States, the semi arid ones, this retention of moisture is a benefit, in others it means the reverse, for it tends to ''sour" some of the best of the plants, and becomes the breeding ground for disease germs and bacteria. Putting on a greater quantity of stock does not improve matters. The only remedy is to cut down the high grass and other plants, and convert it into ensilage. It need not be cut very low, but just enough to. provide good feed for the sheep in the paddock...

PRECAUTIONS IN DIPPING. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 February 1911
PRECAUTIONS IN DIPPING. Sometimes advice given by men, who have a thorough grasp of their subject,. t6 farmers and settlers, is disregarded because proof of its truth is absent. But it; must be remem bered that such advice is the out come of a well-tried experience. In our "Hints to Farmers," the neces sity of studying the sheep's health, from a wool-bearing point, of view, lias been made a strong point,: and the factors that militate against health, have been fully set forth. An example of the result of disregard ing these factors lias recently come to hand. The owners of an estate near Ba.tliurst decided to dip a flock of wethers, about the middle of last month. On their way to the dip the distance being five miles; heavy rain overlook them. Those in charge, ... evidently forced the sheep along at a great/pace, and tliey became over heated. Instead of resting the flock for a while, they were dipped straight away. The result was that about 1000 contracted pneumonia, and of these .2...

BARRAGANYATTI. The secretary of this branch writes: -"My branch.being conversant only with dairying and maize growing con ditions, dealt only with these items, and the following motions were car ried:-(1) That the executive be re quested to obtain a clearer definition of the abolition of child labour clause, and further, that the branch considers that the R.W.U.'s interference with child labour to be beyond their rights. In connection with this we desire to know whether it is the union's idea to prevent a farmer's children from helping on the farm, or whether it is simply intended to prevent the farmer from hiring outside child la bour. (2) Re dairying:-This branch considers 30s per week for 60 hours (including Sundays) to be fair offer, and to include all work pertaining to dairying, such as separating, feeding poddies, etc. (3) Re maize picking. This branch objects to day wages, but would offer instead piecework at the following rates:-25s per 100 bushels in the cob or 16s per 100...

Shall We Alter the Constitution? THE REFERENDA FOLLY. A RECAPITULATION. IV. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 February 1911
Shall We Alter the Constitution ? THE REFERENDA FOLLY. A RECAPITULATION. IY. Those who have followed our ar ticles upon the proposals for the al teration of the Constitution, which are to be submitted to the vote of the people in April next, will have now, we hope, a clearer conception of what these proposals really mean. Let it now be repeated: Under a system of unification, power of eentrol and respon sibility for results would go hand in hand, whereas under the constitu tion as now aimed at the power of control will be in one set of people, vh'lst the responsibility for success ful results "will rest with another set. One lot of people will spend the money; another will have to supply it. Under a constitution providing for the unification of the Aus tralian States, every voter in Aus tralia would have flhe same repre sentation, no more, no less. If there were eight times as many voters in New South Wales as in Tasmania, then New South Wales would have eight times as many represen...
The Reader's View "GO ON THE LAND FEVER." [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 February 1911
j-n The Reader's View "GO ON THE LAftD FEVER." "Agricola" writes:-I was charmed with that sparkling quotation you gave from some highly placed Italian patriot or official; but .1 am not sat isfied with what is being done in New South Wales to place men on the land. I have nothing to say against any particular officer of'the Lands Department. They may be all as good as can be got for the money; but the net result is disap pointing-mostly all cry and very little wool. After about. 50 years of experience in the business, the Great Circumlocution Office seems to be very well satisfied if it gets an ap lication fixed up bv the Land- Board inside of two years. What are two years to ' a young fellow with all ins life before him? They*' are liis best years, fullest of hope and en-: ergy? which with his little capital are : dissipated by the cumbersome and unbusinesslike methods Ave have enacted'into laws. Every year sees sonie new 'fetter rivetted oh indivi dual freedom in the "pursuit of l...
