The Western Lands Commission at Hay. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 26 April 1901

The Western Lands Commis sion at Hay. The Western Lands Commission commenced a sitting at Hay on Tuesday morning last. There were present:— Mr C. J. McMaster (chairman) Messrs Ash ton, Davis, Spence, and Willis, M'b.P. and Mr It. K. Machattie. The Chairman said, in opening the proceedings, that one of the principal reasons for the Commission coming to Hay was to ascertain whether any of the land in the Central Division was of a similar nature to that in the Western Division adjoining, and they would be glad of any information on that head. William Gibbon Walker stated that he had been district surveyor since December. He had worked in the Hay Board district from 1876 to 1885, both as a licensed and staff surveyor. He had a personal acquaintance of the land of the Western Division. He first saw the land in the Western Division in 1877 and 1878, and he had seen it recently. The land had undoubtedly deteriorated 6ince 1877. The bush and the grass did not exist to the same extent. There...

Land , Legislation. STATEMENT BY MR. CRICK. HAY, Wednesday. Mr W. P. Crick, Minister for Lands, ar rived in Hay, by to-night's train, and was met at the station by the mayor and alder men. He was driven to Tattersall's Hotel and welcomed to the 'town. In response to his health, Mr Crick said the policy of the new Government would be unfolded on Saturday by the Premier. With regard to their land policy, he intended to make the occupation of the land the first considera tion, irrespective of revenue. The policy of the past administration had been to squeeze as much money as possible out of occupiers. Under federation the whole state would have to contribute taxes to the amount of £2 per head, and the state Treasurer would get re paid from, the Federal Treasurer. They recognised that land was now their principal asset, but they did not intend to dispossess the present tenants in order merely to put new ones in.

The Western Lands Commis sion. HAY, Wednesday. The Royal Commission on Western Lands resumed its inquiry at Hay on Wednesday. Evidence in support of the claim of certain of the central division's pastoral tenants to have their holdings included in the western division was given by Mr Gordon Ayre, of Benduck : Mr Harrv Fn,rrn,i«_ nf K«ri Rori ? Mr John Dill, of Toogimbie; Mr Robert M'Farland, of Thelangerin ; Mr A. W. Aus tin, of Canoon. The Government surveyor (Mr John Broughfcon) gave evidence to the effect that the carrying capacity of the hold ings in question was a sheep to 8| acres. The number of sheep a small holder should be able to carry was 1,500 to 2,000, but near the towns, where dairying and poultry farming could be carried on, a selector could do with 1000 sheep. In the Hay district 98,000 acres had been made, available in settlement leases in 36 holdings, and of these 34 had been taken up. The present settlement leases in the Hay district were too small, and should not...
