COUNTRY KILLING. SOLUTION OF MEAT PROBLEM. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 7 February 1919
COUNTRY KILLING. SOLUTION OF MEAT PROBLEM. The country killing of stock, an argu ment which has almost been worked threadbare in the editorial columns of Dubbo "Dispatch," was the subject of an interesting discussion by the Castle reagh farmers at the last conference. All present were not only unanimous in the opinion that country killing, the ' elimination of the middleman - and cold storage constitute the solution of the meat question; but they also declare that the Government is doomed if it does not help this accomplishment— which will give the grower a fair price for his stock, and will enable the meat i o be sold to the consumer at a greatly redueed cost, as compared with present price's.' Mr. 1ST. L McLennon put it tersely when he stated that the middle ! man, without any risk, makes as much ! out of a beast in 2-i hours as the grazier j gets for it after rearing it for years.

BEST WINES FROM HUNTER VALLEY. Industry Has Great Future. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 7 February 1919
BEST WINES FROM HUNTER VALLEY. Industry Has Great Future. A party of: politicians has just re turned from the vineyards of the Hun ter Valley, impressed with the potenti alities of the vine. Our parliamentar ians should be perhaps congratulated upon their belated recognition ot' the vine industry, for it is better late than never, states the "Evening News." Wine in itself is a good thing, and Aus tralia is admirably adapted for the pro duction of good wines. The Hunter Valley is pre-eminent in Now South Wales in this respect. No one who has roamed the pleasant hills of .Pokolbin at vintage time would be other than a friend to the industry. The typical winegrowers of the Hunter Valley were and are a fine typo of men. The Wil kinsons and the Lindemans were typical families, and the industry which bred a man like Mr. .J. McDonald, who has now exchanged his Pokolbin vineyard for a Queensland station—has reason for pride. Of the vineyards of the Mur ray much the same might be said, and (...

TO STIMULATE TOBACCO GROWING. Australian Companies' Offer. Will Take Two Million Pounds (weight) every year; Revival Expected. With the object of stimulating the tobacco industry in Australia, the Aus tralian tobacco companies have made an offer to the Commonwealth Board of Trade to 'purchase 2,000,000-lb. weight of Australian-grown flue-cured tobacco each year for three years, starting from the date when the first year's product is marketable. The type, grades of leaf, and quanti ties required, and prices offered are as follows: Lemon color, 2f>0,000-lbv, at 2s. 6d. per lb.; bright mahogany color, 750,0001b. at 2s.; No. 1 dark, r>()&lt;),000lb.. at Is. 6d.; No. 2 bright and dark, oOO,OCOlb., at from Gd. to Is. per lb. 'Commenting upon this offer, the agricultural editor of the "Sydney Morning Herald" writes: The tobacco industry in the Tamworth district has shown signs of a revival during the last two years. ■Growers a couple of years previously had practically aban d...

New Hospital Wanted at laverell (From our Inverell Correspondent.) | mere is an urgent neea ror a-'new hospital at Invcrell. .Recently the Minister for Health visited the institu tion and expressed the opinion that a new structure was needed.

Armidale High School. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 7 February 1919
A r mid ale High School. (From our Armida^e Correspondent.) A suggestion has been made that a High School be built as a local soldiers' memorial. The Minister for Education has promised a deputation that if Armi dale ipeople subscribed £3000, he would find the other £6000 to build- the school. Unless this amount be raised, Armidale stands little chance of getting a High School for years, as Broken Hill, Lis more, Taree, Taanwortli, and other centres are all ahead of Armidale. These towns have no large private schools in their midst to take away pupils.
GOVERNMENT GRANT TO NECESSITOUS FARMERS. Inverell People of Opinion That More Money is Necessary to Avert Disaster. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 7 February 1919
GOVERNMENT GRANT TO NECESSITOUS FARMERS. Invereli People of Opinion That More Money is Necessary to Avert Disaster. (From our Inverell Correspondent.) A largely attended meeting was held at tlio Inverell Town Hall 011 Monday evening for the purpose of protesting to the State Government against the inadequacy of the grant to necessitous farmers, who have been affected by the drought. The sum of £100,000, which has been set apart, is to be doled out in small amounts, with a £100 limit. It is felt in this district, where farmers have been very hadly hit by the dry weather conditions of the last 12 months, that the grant is altogether too small. Tt is, in fact, pitifully in adequate. The flocks and herds .in this State must be saved at all cost, and if there are cases where it is shown that a grant of up to £500 or £1000 is re quired to save the settler from absolute ruin, then it is felt that the Government should not hesitate a moment in afford ing the relief required. It has been dec...

REPATRIATION COMMITTEE DOWN YARROW1TCH SCHEME. At the monthly meeting of the Wing ham and Upper Manning Repatriation Committee, the Mayor presented a couple of letters which had been received by the Council from the president of the Walcha Repatriation Ccm-mitt.ee, asking for co-operation m inducing the Minister for Repatriation to acquire the Crown lands and, if necessary, private lands, at present values, at the heads of the Hastings, Macleay and Manning Rivers; after ac quiring, to petition the Government to construct a railway by sections from the North Coast line to open up and de velop the lower levels above Com-boyne and Ellenborough, and gradually con tinue on towards Yarrowitch or Nowen doc on the tableland; the whole of the railway work to be done by returned soldiers. A party was being organised (to include the district surveyors of Armidale and Maitland and membeifc of all neighboring shires and Repatria tion Committees) to explore the country mentioned. The meeting unan...

OREE DISTRICT. Sister M. Woods Honored. Sister M. Woods, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Win. Woods, of Woodpark, Moree, lias been awarded the Royal Red Cross. Sister Woods has been on active service for over four years. Presentation to Mr. Cuimnins. At the Council Chambers on Tuesday evening the Mayor (Alderman D. B. Suttie), on behalf of his fellow alder men, presented Mr. R. E. Cummins (formerly town clerk for the Munici pality of Moree) with a handsome silver teapot, a silver coffee pot and a valuable set of carvers.' In making the presenta tion, the Mayor paid a warm tribute to the recipient for the high standard of efficiency with which he carried out his duties as town clerk. Mr. Cummins volunteered for the front, but was re^ jected on account of physical unfitness. He was one of Moree's most enthusias tic patriotic workers, and it was in a large measure due to his organisation as secretary to various patriotic day appeals that Moree had the splendid achievement to its credit of hav...

THE PEST OF PESTS. Manilla Farmers Declare War on Rabbits. SCHEME TO WIRE-NET COUNTRY. In the Meantime, Poison will be Used Extensively. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 7 February 1919
THE PEST OF PESTS. Manilla Farmers Declare War on Rabbits. SCHEME TO WIRE-NET COUNTRY. In the Meantime, Poison will be Used Extensively. Air. Raymond Hammill, of Man illa, relates how the farmers in hi:* district have banded together in au attempt to rid the country of rab bits. A far-reaching proposal, he states, is to be placed before the Government—to float a loan of £10,000,000 or £15,000,000 for the purpose of making wire-netting, which is to be used to divide the whole countryside into divisions. The residents of each division would then be made responsible for the destruction of rabbits in their division. That is the essence of the scheme. (By Raymond Hammill.) The man who chooses the land as his way of making a Jiving lias many troubles to contend against. Droughts, bush-fires, Hoods, and wheat rust all come, but it may be safely asserted that "the furry friend of the trapper" is his greatest enemy. The rabbit is the pest of pests. No natter where one goes, north, south, oas...

Inverell-Glen Innes Railway. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 7 February 1919
Inverell-GIen Innes Railway. A conference is to be held at Inverell on February 26 for the purpose of ar riving at some unanimity of opinion respecting the point at which the pro posed railway to the northern line from this centre should join up. The Inverell Chamber of Commerce is taking the matter up and issuing invitations to all affiliated bodies and others interested to attend the conference, so that when the Government is approached there will not be any dissension regarding the route to be advocated. The construc tion of a railway from Inverell to Glen lnnes strikes a strong decentralisation note, and for that reason there may be strong opposition in certain interested quarters to the proposal.
DECENTRALISATION IS FOR WHOLE STATE. And Not for One Locality. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 7 February 1919
DECENTRALISATION IS FOR WHOLE STATE. And Not for One Locality. The Tain worth "Observer" takes Inverell to task, says Armidale "Ex press," for being keen on decentral isation hut unenthusiastic in respect ot the "Observer's" pet hobby—urging that Port Stephens be made a port aiut have rail connection with the tableland —of course not very far from Tarn worth. The Inverell public meeting was bold enough to affirm that a port on the North (Joust in a direct line with Inverell would be a great advan tage to the town and district. "But this is not the point/' writes the "Ob server." "The question is not whether Inverell shall have 110 outlet at Coff's Harbor or whether Tamworth and other places shall have one at Port Stephens. It is whether a comprehensive scheme of decentralisation shall be commenced at the right end." Could an argument be more lopsided or illogical? Year in and year out the "Observer" cham pions the cause of Port Stephens, yet if one of the many other proposed ports— ...
