WANTED—A VIGOROUS LAND SETTLEMENT. A FEW PERTINENT QUESTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 March 1906
WANTED— A VIGOROUS LAND SETTLEMENT. A FEW PERTINENT QUESTIONS. Bv S.C.W. Why is land so scarce? Why are our farmers' sons emigrating to Queensland ? There is plenty of good land in our own State, but how is it held? In Riverina, where the Nouranie ballot took place, leaving over 400 disappointed land seek ers, there are 136 large estates, aggregat ing over 7,000,000 acres, or an average of scarcity of land in Riverina that blocks settlement, but it is the monopoly caused by our defective land laws which still are in vogue. Of that great area of over 7,000,000 acres less than 2 per cent, is cul tivated, while out of 800 small holdings aggregating 500,000 acres, over 15 per cent, is cultivated. Why should this han cent, is cultivated. Why should this handful of landholders stand in the way of settlement in one of the most magnifi ? cent wheat-growing parts of the State al ready served by railway lines which do not pay? It pays them to hold their land in large areas, and so very little...

CONTRIBUTED ARTICLES on Topical Subjects. LAND ADMINISTRATION BY COMMISSION.—V. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 March 1906
CONTRIBUTED ARTICLES on Topical Subjects. LAND ADMINISTRATION BY COMMISSION ? V. By E. B. The history of our transactions in this State is not by any means barren of pre cedents (if such are necessary). Various causes led up to our railways — the most valuable asset we possess after the lands — being placed under Commis sion, and Entirely freed from political control. The Western division of our a problem with which no Minister or party could successfully grapple, was handed over to the control of a commis sion. In one form or another, and called perhaps by different names, the original ? powers and duties of Government at its k inception, and as they developed as time j*^« went, have been more or less amended and simplified by delegating large pow ers and responsibilities to men outside Parliament. The Public Service Com mission is another instance, not to speak of the various boards regulating water and sewerage, traffic, and other duties. All these powers emanated from Parlia men...

A NEW STUMP JUMP DISC PLOUGH. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 March 1906
A NEW STUMP JUMP DISC PLOUGH. One of the most noticeable exhibits in the agricultural portion of the A.N.A. Exhibition, Melbourne, was the collec tion shown by Mr; H. V. McKay, of the 'Sunshine' Harvester Works4 of Ballar at and Braybrook, whose renown as in ventor and manufacturer of the 'Sun- shine' harvester has spread throughout Australia. The exhibit embraced a com plete line of implements, including the 'Sunshine' harvester, Field Marshal drill, 'Sunbeam' plough, and the 'Sun- rise' stump jump disc and mouldboard ploughs. Though all of ?these have an important bearing on Australian agricul ture, yet the most novel, and one of special interest at the present moment, is the 'Sunrise' stump jump disc plough. There has; hitherto been a diffi culty in securing a stump jump disc plough that would give sufficient 'pres sure on the discs while ploughing and freedom while rising over obstacles. Be fore the present time, the discs, whether ?held down by the horse draught or by springs, ...

JARROWYCK. THE PAPER— MINERAL LEASES WIRE NETTINC— OUR NEW J.P. At the meeting on Saturday (the president, Mr. J. Lennon, in the chair), * the attendance was the best we have had so far. Greater interest is now being manifes ~ ted in the Association and the 'F and S.' paper is found to , be just the right tliino- in flip, rie-ht nlace. Those who have seen copies speak highly of its merits, and all present at Saturday's meeting planked down their yearly sub scriptions. I think that is best, after all, when a mans money talks. for him. A discussion regarding the mineral leases showed the interest which all pre sent took in the subject. The secretary read a letter of advice from Mr. T. I. Campbell, dealing with the best ways and means of dealing with the cases, v ThV; was backed up by some hearty suggestions from the chair man, and after a deal of discussion the '*» matter was properly arranged for the time.

Branch Reports — continued. BAAN BAA. THE PAPER— WIRE NETTINC— PAR- TIAL STORMS— DAIRYING. There was a good attendance on the 3rd inst. You will have a full account of business transacted for next issue. Our members are highly pleased with our little paper, and the sound, instruc tive reading matter contained in each issue. I feel sure it will be well sup ported in this quarter, not only by our members, but by many other residents outside our Association. I enclose the names of several subscribers, and trust each week tn V-p ablp tn add tn rhpir num ber. The rabbit question is the present great trouble of our farmers and settlers, and unless the Government can supply the farmers with wire netting by June next I fear there will be very little wheat grown in parts of this distict. Of course, some settlers have made, or at the pre sent time are making, their holdings rab bit-proof, but the majority will, unfortu nately, have to look to the Government for netting. Our branch passed a re...
