Pessimism. THE LAND LAWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Stock and Station Journal — 5 May 1896
Pessimism. THE LAND LAWS. ? Some time ago a gentleman, well known in the world, made some stirring remarks about the land laws. He spoke bitterly, from out the depths of a hard experience. We wrote and asked him to use our columns to say further what, was in his heart. His reply is saddening, but it only ex presses what many feel. He says : — li I would gladly undertake a part in a crusade, having for its object the reform of the existing iniquitous land laws, did I think that any efforts put forth in this direction would be of the slightest avail ; I know, by bitter ex perience, they would not be. No combination of squatters would be of the slightest use, as they do not hold the balance of voting power. In my opinion, the reform of the land laws will only be obtained when the Parlia ment of New South Wales realises, by the abandonment of large areas of Crown lands, what an immeuse por tion of New South Wales is unprofit able for sheep farming purposes.'

The Bungendore and Bywong Gold Mining Company, Ltd. 5 Moore-Street, Sydney, May 1st, 1896. To the Shareholders. LaDIESANdGentlemkx,— Havingrecently .accepted the position of Chairman cf the JJoard of Directois of your Company, I have felfc it my duty to make a careful scrutiny into the affairs of the Company ; also an to its prospects, at an early date, of returning fairly remunerative dividends upon the sub scribed capital. xxTi'+k thin And in view the oince ot the 'Company has been removed to the above ,*ddre?s, adjacent to my own ottices, and Mr. J. H. C. Harper appointed and gazetted legal Manager of the Company in the place . .of Mr. E. E. Hole, resigned.

Pastoral Defence. TO THE EDITOR " S. S. AND S. JOURNAL." [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Stock and Station Journal — 5 May 1896
Pastoral Defence. TO THE EDITOR ' S. S. AND S. JOURNAL.' Sir, — Your admirable chapter of lt Gossip,' in your issue of 21st inst., , is worth the consideration of those j engaged in producing the chief wealth i of the colony. Your arguments are j unassailable, yet it is to be feared that f those in whom you are interested will : turn a deaf ear to your exhorta tions. The people engaged in pastoral \ pursuits in this colony are so hope- ! lessly disunited that to bring them to gether is almost a similar task to thab of Sisyphus. You may roll their grievances up the hill to attract public y attention, but the moment you turn \ I aside the past work is undone. Per- I haps at no time in the his tor v of New li South Wales have the landed in- I terests been more threatened than now, and for what purpose ? Merely to suit the views of a certain class of legislators who, for the sake of holding on to a Parliamentary place, have not scrupled to pander to the worst pas sions of an ignorant, u...
Strange, but True. TO THE EDITOR " S. S. AND S. JOURNAL." [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Stock and Station Journal — 5 May 1896
Strange, but True. TO THE EDITOR ' S. S. AND S. JOURNAL.'' Sir, — Touching the enclosed letter. We have really done more for New Wales than any other colony, but the results are not so conspicuous — they form a part of the great whole. New South Wales has. or had. somn sixty million sheep, and although we have done about seven million it is only a small part. Western Victoria and New Zealand had, like. New South Wales, practiced the arsenic and dip drenches along with ours. They, as educated, practical men saw tin.) tremendous contrast, and went at once for the best results, hence our position to-day among the highest class wool and mutton authori ties in Australia. Sheop in New South Wales are, unfortunately, low down in the scale. and owners say that any kind of poison is good enough This is to be deplored, for people believe this evidence. We have certainly been used handsomely in the other colonies ; Victoria, Queensland, and New Zealand dropped their Customs de mands 30 per cen...

THE WKATHER AND THE PASTORALIST. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Stock and Station Journal — 8 May 1896
THE WEATHER AND THE PA8TORALIST. The weather in the country is curiously unsettled. Over immense areas the land is as bare ap a board, in spite of the recent rains. The winter is near at hand, when vegetation will cease to spring, and we will be left to a long winter with no feed. The prospects are not too pleasing. Over other vast areas they have plenty of grass and water, and the season is as good as it could possibly be, and it is difficult to arrive at the real condition of affairs. In many districts there are enormous areas being placed under wheat, and the pastoralists themselves are setting aside large cultivation paddocks and preparing for the bad season that may come. Slowly but surely we are being driven to methods of cultivation. We are realising that a 'sheep takes its wool down its throat. A sheep that shears six pounds on the run will shear fourteen pounds if it.'s a home stead pet. Heavy clips and good prices come to the men who go in for artificial feed and deep tank...

Vagaries of Agents. TO THE EDITOR "S.S. AND S. JOURNAL." [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Stock and Station Journal — 8 May 1896
Vagaries of Agents. TO THE EDITOR ' S.S. AND S. JOURNAL.' Sir, — Some of the stock agents practise a very pernicious trick that it behoves stock-owner 3 to beware of, i.e., immediately they receive par ticulars of a lot of stock likely to go off quickly they apply for the offer and then try and find a buyer. If thev succeed no harm results, if not the owner suffers, for when it is known that stock have been under offer and not sold it is presumed that they have been inspected and rejected, and so other buyers are unjustly prejudiced against them ; or a bona fide buyer may come along, when the stock are thus needlessly locked up, and the owner probably lose the chance of an an advantageous sale. The remedy would appear to be for owners to insist upon receiving name of buyer, with application for offer. Yours, etc., ' Kea.' The regatta of ihe public schools will be held on May 9th. Mr. Oecil Rhodes has resigned from the chair of the Chartered Company, and is willing to resign from the...

Scone A. F. YORK Reports— Since our last report I have sold a great number of stock of all descriptions, but prices have fallen very much, both for stores and fats, owing chiefly, no doubt, to the want of rain, and also to the strong in dications of a dry winter.

Our Wool Report. THURSDAY NOON, May 6th, 1896. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Stock and Station Journal — 8 May 1896
Our Wool Report. Thubsday Nook, :: May 6th, 1896. Auctions were held in this market yester day and to-day, when 2279 bales in all were brought under the hammer. Con : sidering the time of the year, and the small ness of the offerings, there was a very good attendance of buyers, several representatives from Melbourne being present At yester day's sales the offerings were unattractive, consisting of wools ranging from inferior to medium quality, ana ot wmen tne larger proportion was scoured wool. Although competition was keen, the market had an easier tendency, but not to the extent that bad been anticipated in view of the lesB favorable news from London. As a matter of fact, the decline reported from the other aide had, tola certain extent, been discounted here, the Sydney sales of a fortnight ago giving premonition [of the state of things that might be expected when the London aeries opened on 28th April. At the local sales under notice considerable withdrawals took place, owners no...
