TENTERFIELD. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 February 1911
TENTERFIELD. Tenterfield District Council has passed ;the following resolution: "That, this council protest against the rate of wages and hours of work, as put forward in the claims of the Ru ral Workers' Union, and this council asks that arrangements he made to have a sitting of the Arbitration : Court held in Tenterfield, for hearing of. evidence rebutting those claims." "Our .district,", writes the'secretary, "is altogether different to a good many other parts of the State. For instance, the soil is much poorer, and the holdings are on the whole very^ small. In the winter months the cold stops the dairying; in fact, it is as much as. we can do to keep the but ter factory going during the winter months. . . "Again, we are so far away from the markets that the freight is very heavy. Taking these things into con sideration, it is impossible for the farmers to pay such rates of wages as the H.W.U. put forward".

Councils' Officials. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 February 1911
Councils' Officials. Kempsey Municipal Council, ac cording to the local paper, possesses a Town Clerk (Mr. J. W. Wilson) arid a Council Clerk (Mr. A. J. Druitt). The Returning Officer of Lismore is, we hear, -threatened..'with, legal pro ceedings for refusing the nomination of one of the candidates at the late election. We learn from an exchange, that one of the councillors, of Bolwarra Shire, said that "the Ordinance riot only compelled them to employ a cer tificated engineer, but also fixed the salary lie was to paid." Such is not the case. . While it is compulsory for all sliires to have an engineer, the re muneration is left to the discretion of each individual council.; Mr. Lock, of Castlemaine, Victoria, has received''the appointment of En gineer to Kyogle Shire. The Mayor of Gunnedah stated to the council that the Government In spector of accounts had examined all books and accounts of the council, and failed to find any one particular in which the clerk had neglected to : co...
General Produce. SUSSEX-STREET. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 February 1911
General Produce. SUSSEX-STREET. Generally speaking, business is still feeling the effects of the rainy wea ther, and the common belief tliat we have not yet seen the last of it. Of produce arriving there is much that is damaged, especially chaff, and a good deal of grain has suffered. Potatoes are higher than they ought to be, and onions likewise, partly be cause the conditions have not been favourable for digging, and hence the supply in the market is less than would otherwise have been the case. There are good crops of potatoes and onions awaiting attention, and pre sent priees cannot be maintained when these reach the market. Chaff is just now a drug, and much of it is far from being up to the mark. Choice is scarce, and almost unob tainable, and so with hay, which the growers have not been able to make in any quantity for some weeks. There is good maize coming in from Victoria and Tumut, but most of the Northern Rivers' maize is weevilly, and some of it only fit for the use of p...
Chief Secretary on Hospitals. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 February 1911
Chief Secretary oil Hospitals. Apropos of the scheme propounded by Cr. It. J. Higgins, President of the Shires Association of NeAv South trol of hospitals, and levy a hospital Wales, for councils to take the con rate, the Chief Secretary (Mr. M'Don nell) has expressed.himself as favour able to a system of taxation whereby they may be supported. "Personal ly," he said to a deputation, "I would make it an obligation of the State to provide efiicient hospitals throughout the country. I realise that while people like you give your money in support of hospitals, there are lots of other people who won't give a cent, though they are ready enough to take advantage of them when they fall ill or have an accident. There should be a system of taxation that would make these people pay up their fair share."
RAILWAY SALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 February 1911
RAILWAY SALES. All the week the railway market at Redfern has been unsatisfactory from the sellers' point of view. The prin cipal commodity ottered at auction here is chaff, and just now chaff is something of a drug in the market; because there is such a plenitude of green feed as' the result of bountiful rains. But that is only a temporary condition. Chaff-cutting machines in the country districts go on cutting . just the same, be the weather wet or fine, and the usual outlet, the rail way, is used to take the goods to market. But it is a question for the cutters to consider whether it would not pay them better to conduct theii business with more discretion and less by a sort of " rule of thumb" method. The fact that they sent so much chaff to market last month is not sufficient reason why they should send the same quantity this month, if in the meantime the weather con ditions have changed. In Australia a very little rain will give a great deal of green feed, and a plenitude of gr...
Accounts. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 February 1911
Accounts. We have to congratulate our young friend, Mr. A. C. Marshall, Shire Clerk of Yarroluihla, on the early publication of his revenue account and balance-sheet for the past year, it having been audited on the 11th January, approved by the Statisti cian, and published on 3rd February. Also to Mr. A. A. Daniel, Shire Clerk of Martliaguy, who had his audit over on 17th January, and it was approv ed and published oir 4th February. These are the first two shire balance sheets published that, have come under , our notice this year. ^
Another Council Resigns. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 February 1911
Another Council, Resigns. A meeting of the Maclean Council "was called for the 7th February, for the purpose of electing a Mayor for the current year. Instead of attend ing the meeting to carry out its ob ject, the whole nine aldermen handed in their resignations. It appears that ex-alderman Scliwonberg, who was disqualified as a candidate at the late election on account of unpaid com mon agistment fees, has commenced an action to unseat, if he can, the whole of the elected aldermen.
Councils Leasing Lands. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 February 1911
Councils Leasing Lands. Blayney Council received an appli cation from a person to lease a cer tain allotment in Blayney West, on which rates were not being paid by the owner. The application was not entertained, on the ground that the council had 110 power to grant such a lease. Under the L.G. Act (sec. 148), municipal councils . cannot.:,take pos session of land on account of rates being unpaid thereon until after the 31st December, 1911. Shire Councils can take possession one year earlier than this (i.e., from 3.1s.t. January, 1911, so that this year we may ex pect to hear of a number of shires taking this step). It is a very im portant provision of the Act, and one which councils should certainly put into operation in every possible case. At the same time certain practical difficulties; are in the way. In the first place what is involved in "taking possession"? In some cases the act of doing so is simple enough. The council can erect a fence, however pri mitive, on the boundaries...

A Wet Poll. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 February 1911
A Wet Poll. On Saturday, 28th January, it was found impossible to take the poll at Wiley's Crossing, for one of the rid ings in Bellingen Shire, in conse quence of floods, so it was postponed until the following Saturday, when the same difficulty existed. Never theless, the poll was then taken, the officials having to travel about &lt;10 miles for the purpose. Over 40 en thusiastic voters, some having to walk seven miles through the mud, and rain, exercised the franchise. One man, not to be baulked, stripped, tied his clothes on his head, and swam the . stream ,and recorded his vote. Some women electors drove through the rain distances from 12 to 20 miles. One candidate (Butler) received 22 votes, and the other (Moseley) 102.

LAMBS. A fair proportion of lambs were yarded. Most of tliem were of me dium quality, a very limited supply being suitable for the export trade. Crossbreds were most in evidence, some of the best were very burry. The market was without quotable change, a few of the best made to 14/, good trade from 10/ to 12/6, fair quality, from 8/; light and inferior, from G/.
Taxing Crown Lands. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 February 1911
Taxing Crown Lands. The State Premier lias expressed the: opinion that the losses to local revenue through the exemption of Government land, constituted a ques tion that must be faccd. During the course of a discussion with a deputa tion, it Avas mentioned that North Sydney was losing over £G00 a year by the State having acquired posses sion of the land at Ball's Head. The year over property it could not levy Redfern Council was losing £1000 a on. The. question of how far the Go vernment should be exempt while the municipality was to carry on its func tions would have to be met in some way sooner or later.
FAT STOCK. SHEEP. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 February 1911
FAT STOCK. SHEEP. From 193 owners there were listed for sale 43,894 slieep and .lambs, in cluded in which were eight drafts, ranging from GOO to 1000, and 45 drafts from 300 upwards. The bal ance covered small lines from 20 up wards. The condition, taken as a whole, was from fair trade to prime, with a few small drafts of extra prime, and a moderate supply of the medium grade. Ewes were much in evidence, with occasional pens of prime showing. Crossbreds were in moderate supply, chiefly of good qua lity, with a few pens of prime. Buy ers were in full attendance, and as the supply was within requirements, the market was firm at last week's: quotations for good trade and prime quality, whilst other grades met with good competition-so much so that a few local buyers preferred to obtain their requirements from the whole sale buyers. Messrs. Maiden Bros, topped the market with up to 20/0 for a draft of Cannonbar merinoa in full wool, also at 17/9 for a line of ewes from same station. The ...
