THE FARMERS AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT. PROMPT ACTION URGED. The Editor, "Farmer and Settler." [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 March 1906

THE FARMERS AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT. PROMPT ACTION URGED. The Editor, 'Farmer and Settler.' Sir, — I notice in your issue of 28th inst. the account of the inaugural meeting of the newly-formed Western District Coun cil at Dubbo, and I wish to congratulate the Western branches upon having over come the prejudice that met our efforts to establish Councils all over this State. The Dubbo farmers and settlers are in a position that no other farming com munity enjoys. They are combined, and rnn tnl^n a Unnri in tlif» tri lie mpn nn the land, most important epoch in the his tory of our State, i.e., the formation of the Provisional Government under the Shires Bill. For years our Association has been urg , ing the passing of this Bill. Now, I tfant to ask the members of the various bran ches what they have done to forward the interests of the men on the land under the new Act? Are you going to sleep and let the professional politician run the show, and put his nominees on the Coun cil? Or are y...

THE LANDS COMMISSION. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 March 1906

THE LANDS COMMISSION. With the evidence tendered on the 5 th instant, and the adjournment of the Lands Commission sine die, it is probable that in so far as the taking of evidence is concerned, Judge , Owen's labours are completed. The develooments at the later series of sittings have thrown some interest ing side-lights on the evidence as submitted to the Commission in its earlier stages. It will 4 be remembered that prior to vacation the pastoralists had pre pared (or had prepared for them) a most voluminous reply to the state ment submitted by the Farmers' and Settlers' Association, which was supported by the best evidence they could gather, and which they pre sumably thought would be quite suf ficient to shatter the contentions raised by the Association. To their dismay the expensive and voluminous report evidently missed fire, as. Judge Owen still appeared to keep a close grip on the ques tion before him, and' the Commis sion was not sidetracked from the real issues as to wheth...

IDLE LANDS FOR IDLE HANDS. To the Editor "The Farmer and Settler." [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 March 1906

IDLE LANDS FOR IDLE HANDS. To the Editor 'The Farmer and Settler.' Sir, — It is time a voice was heard from Wagga Wagga, through the medium of 'The Farmer and Settler.' The unanimous opinion of those who have received your paper is that it is very good. The different matters dealt with in each copy have been of direct interest to the man on the land — practical men speaking-, too. in the interests of their fellows. This paper must be a bond of unity, and I trust will be a voice speak ing with no uncertain sound, compelling our legislators to act in such a way that idle hand shall have the use of idle lands, under right conditions. A united front can do this. Let the farmers arid settlers look out men of ability and right principle, and push them to the front ; some of the best brains are in the field. America's greatest Presidents came from the field — Garfield and Lin coln. Our paper is going to bring out the best brain power in the State, and then that 'fellow feeling' which 'make...

OUR EMPTY CONTINENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 March 1906

OUR EMPTY CONTINENT. Undoubtedly the most pressing need of Australia to-day is — Popula- tion ! The largest island-continent in tbe world is in the possession of a mere handful of people, something under five millions. We are not only 'a feeble folk,' but our occu pation is confined practically to a mere rnnge arouna me coast, ana only on the southern and eastern portions, at that. The greater por tion of the continent cannot be said to be in effective occupation. We realise, to a limited extent, the rich ness of our inheritance, and quite rightly are determined to, as far as lies in our power, preserve our pos terity from racial contamination by the teeming' millions of Asiatics, right at our doors. More than that, we, desire to be safe from the wan ton interference of covetous' Euro- pean nations, in order that we may remain free to carve out our own national destiny, to develop in a land free from many of the social prob lems of the old world, a model de mocracy that will be an i...

THE F.A.Q. STANDARD. To the Editor "Farmer and Settler." [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 March 1906

THE F.A.Q. STANDARD. To the Editor 'Farmer and Settler.' Sir,— I read with interest your article on the question of fixing the F.A.Q. standard for the sale of wheat. It js quite apparent that the present system is very unsatisfactory, from the farmers' point of view, as disclosed by your cor respondent, Mr. M. Griffin. With permission, I would like to sub mit a lew suggestions. iviy iuca. i& uiai we should have two fixed standards, say 50.1b. and 62lb. per bushel. After last year's experience , we know that wheat 59lb. or 59£lb. per bushel is a good sale able wheat on the English market ; and the dual standard system might have the effect of making farmers more careful in the get-up of their wheat, as very often wheat that would go 6alb. or 631b. per bushel is greatly reduced in, weight by carrying too much foreign matter in the shape of oats and chaff. I think there is altogether too much of our wheat sold as chickwheat. By a little effort on the part of the farmer much of ...

NO NEED FOR ANXIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 March 1906

NO NEED FOR ANXIETY. By 'Mentor.' The 'Sydney Morning Herald' in its ' On the Land'1 column the other day, dwelt at some length on the prospect of political dissension resulting in the burst ing up of the Farmers' and Settlers' As sociation. While giving the writer credit for all sincerity in the sage reflections he has passed on the subject, I am inclined to think that he has attached far too niuwii iiu|jui taiii^t; iir a, iiAi*iu£ llll*lUdJl* Because an officer of the Association has prominently allied himself with another organisation with antagonistic political aims and the Western District Council has chosen to mark its distinct disapprobation of his conduct, that is no reason why the Association should be immediately burst up. It might just as reasonably be ur ged that the rival organisation is in dan ger of sudden dissolution. The wayward ness of the individual concerned will re coil on himself, and sooner or later he must declare on which side he is going to stand. ' He cann...

OLLA PODRIDA. (Political and Otherwise.) The Falling Birth-rate. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 March 1906

OLLA PODRIDA. (Political and Otherwise.; By Cypher. The Falling Birth-rate. Like the old, old subject that to young: men and maidens is ever new, this mat ter is also one of perennial interest to all sections of the public. It is probably true that the birth-rate is not so high as it used to be in the good ( ?) old times, but it must be recognised that the decline is' general throughout the civilised world — a corollary of advanced civilisation — and no creator here than elsewhere. It will be recollected that a commission was some time ago appointed to investigate the matter, and in its report made certain sensible recommendations respecting the control of maternity homes and registra tion of stillborn infants, etc., which un doubtedly should be embodied in legis lation. The commission, however, did not stop at that, but (presumably with its tongue in its cheek) gave the public a lot of fatherly advice as to the control of its own domestic concerns. The only result was a keen demand...

CLOSER SETTLEMENT. (Per favor of "The Farmer and Settler.") [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 March 1906

CLOSER SETTLEMENT. (Per favor of 'The Farmer and Settler.'') The Farmers' and Settlers' Association of New South Wales has for many years strongly advocated the question of Closer Settlement. In its calm deliberations, it carefully respected the rights of all men ; and the inclusion of a limit of ,£20.000 un improved value on estates to be exempt from resumption clearly indicated the broad principles of justice that animated them. But the Closer Settlement Act seems to have failed in the most essential points. The Crown has certainly re sumed a few estates for the purpose of experimenting' on the question, but the venture has not been too successful ac cording: to report. The Myall Creek re sumption was, and is, looked upon as a failure ; but has any of its opponents proved their condemnation ? This estate was resumed by the Government at the average price of £2 us. 6d. per acre, and when offered to the public under a classified condition, it was not all absorb ed in one act, and so...

BRANCH REPORTS. TO BRANCH SECRETARIES. Secretaries will kindly note that hence forth, unless specially requested, we will not be sending- them more than a single copy each week. We have a very large list of names compiled, between ^70,000 and 80,000, and our desire is to have the paper brought as speedily as possible under the notice of each farmer and set tler in the list. Several of our people advise they are receiving more than one copy, whilst'? others are advising from some districts that they are not receiving any, so we think that it will ensure cor rect delivery and avoid' duplication if the distribution is made direct from . this office. We will only be too pleased to send on extra copies at any time to secre traies who require them.

GLENCOE. NOXIOUS ANIMALS AND WEEDS.— ROAD MATTERS. —SPORTS.— THE PAPER. The local branch held a meeting on the 3rd inst.
