COMMERCIAL PRICES AND MOVEMENTS THE WEEK'S MARKETS [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 10 January 1914

37HE WEEK'S MA-R.TCWTS Wheat has had the usual speculative fluctu ations in Liverpool during the past week, but the movements have been "within narrow limits, and there is little real difference on the week. Unfavorable reports have been re ceived by cable from Argentina and India; but the markets have mot responded as ex pected. It has been cabled from a good Eng lish authority that Russian shipments are: likely to be liberal all the season; but that Argentine shipments during the ensuing four months will only be about three-fifths of .those for the same period last year. Russia's huge wheat harvest this season is expected to counterbalance the decreased supplies from Argentina and India, in and after March, when the Black Sea ports be come free from ice. There has been con siderable divergence in the.reports as to the eteent of the current Russian crop harvested several months ago. The International Insti tute of Agriculture at Rome has a reputa tion as a careful compiler, and its...

SUSPECT NOT SPARKS POLICE ADMIC MISTAKE MADE. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 10 January 1914

SUSPECT NOT SPARKS POLICE) A'DMrC MISTAKE MADF* "John Henry Sparks" called Ser geant T. Ahem, at the City Court on January 3, and in response a thick-set, middle-aged man with clean-shaved face stepped forward. He smiled to a friend in -court as he took his stand at the dock. There was a buzz of excitement in the room and the court was quickly filled by police officers and detectives. The charge read out against the man was that he had escaped from legal cus tody on July 3, 1901. He was dis charged. Mr C. Barnet, who appeared for the man, said that he was arrested and charged under the name of Sparks, but he denied that he was in any way identical with that man. Inspector Bunker said there had evidently been a mistake made. Detective A. S. Burvett said that, in consequence of information received at headquarters, an intimation was sent to Gippsland, and the man was arrested. He was brought to Mel bourne for the purpose of identifica tion. He had been seen by Inspector Macmanamny, Mr...

SENSATIONAL FIRE. BURGLARS SUSPECTED. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 10 January 1914

SKXSATIOXAL FIRE. BURGLARS SUSPECTED. "Stephanie," the two-story resi dence of Mr. C. Wilke, woolbroker, was burnt out at Darling Point, Syd ney, on January 7. The cause of the outbreak is a mystery, but bur gars are suspected. The house is situated in Darling Point road. The only occupants at thextime of the fire were Mrs. Wilke and a friend, Mrs. Shawcross, of Perth. They were both sleeping up stairs, and about 1 o'clock Mrs. Shaw cro^, who slept on the back bal cony, was awakened by the noise of flames. She dragged Mrs. Wilke out of bed, and threw a mattress over the bal cony. Then she tied the sheets from tl^ bed to the balcony to use them as^-i means of escape. They were at first afraid to venture on the perilous journey, but, in response to cries of the next-door neighbor, who warned them that they -would be burned to death, they slid down to the ground. Mrs Wilke fell when half-way down, but alighted on the mattress. The fire brigade soon arrived, and though unable to save th...

MIRBOO NORTH. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 10 January 1914

MIRBOO .NORTH. Excellent weather, with heavy showers of rain, is the • general report. The early crops are the best, as is always the case In this district. Some fine crops are already cut and carted. Caterpillars did a certain amount of damage, and some oat crops were cut on the green side. The labor trouble was not felt, as most of the farmers are able to do their own har vesting. All descriptions of stock continue to sell well in the local auction yards. Sheep and piprs are still bringing high prices. The onion crops put in as an experiment by Messrs Wilklns and Company and Bell are looking well, and have made wonderful growth since the weeding operations. It is reported that the fruit yield through out the district will be short. Pears will be the most abundant crop.

KILMORE. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 10 January 1914

KILMORE. The rainfall during the past year locally "was 24 inches 2 points, as compared with 22 inches 3D points for the previous year. The ■\vinter rains were much lighter than, usual. Harvesting is being pushed on-.with all pos sible haste, owing to the hot weather and the rapid ripening of the crops.

CANADIAN GRAIN FARMER IS HE PROSPEROUS? WAYS OF GRAIN SHARKS. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 10 January 1914

CANADIAN GRAIN FATtMER IS HE PROSPEROUS? WAYS OF GRAIN SHARKS. Mr Niels Nielsen, in his report to the New South "Wales Government on the elevator system in America, says; —"All through the United States and Canada wheat is bought in four grades —1, 2, 3, and chicken feed; but No. 3 absolutely disappears in the hand ling of it through tho elevators. By the time it 13 shipped, or sold in the Eastern States, the elevator owners, and grain sharks, have manipulated it In such a way as to 'ring in'..practi cally the whole of the No. 3 grade wheat into Nos. 2 and 1 in certain pro portions, and this manipulation of the grain results in the enormous profits that accrue to the elevator owners and grain speculators at tho expense of the farmers." It was because of this that it was strongly recommen ded to keep the proposed N.S.W. ter minal elevators in Government hands (says a Sydney paper). In a recent number of the Canadian "Grain Growers' Guide" an article ap peared, entitled "Why Wheat is ...

BQOR'f th<3 .wheat harvest is in full swing, through out the district, ana ' wonderful yields . frfe reported. One man has stripped 1005 bags on 80 acres, of Yandllla ICing variety, arid anything from 6 to 10 bags is the order ot the day. Farther north crops are not so good. After leaving Quambatook. going north, the yield lessens, about Watchie being the poorest. Thousands of acres in that district are not worth stripping. The oat crops In the Boort district were the heaviest for many .years, but owing to the severe wind storms less - than half was harvested. Those who cut their oats for threshing will Come out best. There w&s more than the usual area cut for hay, and the quality will be very good, so that the farmers up north on the Chillin gollah and Manangatarig line, who could not cut hay, will be able to procure it at a low freight cost. "Wheat is coming iff very freely. There have already arrived at the Boort stations over 60,000 bags. This is about double ...

GORMANDATiTi! The month of December was drier than usual for these' parts. The year closed with a, total of 31.17 points. The weather of late has been most- suit able for harvesting operations. Fodder crops &re the staple round hero, and tihese have been got in an good condition. A felling oJf in the'milk yield has taken place as a matter of course. The season is an excellent one, and as t&e weather has not been too warm as yet, the grass has kept Igreen. S-crae fires have taken place, in the rough bush paddocks, but no harm has been done. In fact, fires on these blocks early in ' the season make the more settled parts safer from lire later in the summer. ; There are indications that the Roads [Board will soon be letting contracts on the proclaimed main roads in this locality.

A NEW STATION. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 10 January 1914

A NEW STATION. Good progress is being made with the erection of the wireless station at Casterton. When completed it will link the Casterton and Strathdownie districts. It will be the first of the wireless sta? tions which it is proposed to set up in the back country districts, and which will confer on the remote parts of the State the benefits of telegraphic communication. The cost'of the construction of the station at Casterton will be about £200, which is a great deal less than if the old system of. pole and wire had been relied upon. It is the policy of Mr. Agar Wynne, the Postmaster General, to have the erection of these wireless stations pushed ahead as quickly as the department can under take the work. -■ . .
