FARMERS AND UNIONISM. ACTION IN GEELONG. [Newspaper Article] — Warracknabeal Herald — 3 February 1914
FARMERS AND UNIONISM. ACTION IN GEELONG. At a meeting in the "Exchange" on Thursday, Geelong district far mers, who crowded the room, had a vigorous discussion on unionism, rates of pay to rural workers, and the hold ing up of the industry in other parts of Australia by strikes. Speakers ad-: vocated that farmers should stand ! solidly together for their rights. They; would easily gain the upper hand if they stood firm, even if it went to the extent of having to do all the harvest ing, carting, and loading themselves. It is understood that about 70 farmers intimated that they would combine for mutual help purposes and contribute to the defence fund. It was also sta* ted that many others who could not attend the meeting will fall in with the proposal. Another meeting is to be held this week to further discuss it.

WATER SUPPLY. The decision of the Water Commis* sion not to send the water down the channels until the first of June is not regarded as satisfactory by the majority of far mers, who pay.high .water rates, and i depend on the channel for a freshen* : tag. supply..,.It is usually during the | months from January to April or May I that a replenishing of the dams and j water supply is most required, as seed I ing operations are then in progress, and water generally is getting low, but usually by the 1'st of June rain has fal len, and when the water comes along it is more of a nuisance than a bles sing, as in most cases -it is not requir I ed, and the already filled dams are ! overflowed, and it has to run to waste in the paddocks. Oould the commis sion be prevailed upon to adopt the more - sensible method of sending down a supply, in. February or March, it would be a welcome boon to far mers, who would gladly pay the rates without a murmur, while the quantity said to be absorbed in soak...

THE PAPER WITH THE LARGEST CIRCULATION. PUBLISHED EVERY TUESDAY AND FRIDAY MORNINGS, WITH SUPPLEMENT. TUESDAY. FEBRUARY 3rd, 1914 Mention has been made in the open columns of the "Herald" recently crystallising the public opinion held by residents from 'Murtoa to Hopetoun I that the second addition of the Mel* ! bourne North-Western express should terminate Its journey at Hopetoun in stead of Dlmboola. as at present. At present, the Adelaide through ex press leaves Melbourne at 4.30 p.m. No passengers are allowed to travel on this first addition on the Melbourne side of Horsham.
