Molong Mounted Rifles. Staff Sergeant-Major Wasson. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 8 August 1902
Molong Mounted Rifles. — u— Staff Sergeant-Major Wasson. It is with feelings of greatest pleasure that the Abgds learns of Stafi Sergeant-Major Wasson 's reappoint ment, until further notice, as In structor of Molong Mounted Rifles. Up to the outbreak of the Boer War, the Sergeant held the position of Instructor of both Molong and Forbes Half- Squadrons, and, returning safe and sound, with honors for distin guished service on the battle-field, we now learn that be has been appointed to devote bis whole attention to Molong. Sergeant- Major Hawkey, who succeeded Sergeant Wasson here, will continue to instruct the Forbes men. For Molong and Forbes both to have a military instructor is an honor indeed, and we feel that the guiding hand of Lieutenant-Colonel Claude Smith is here traced to the advantage of both Half-Squadrons. Sergeant Wasson is delighted with the new Military Hall recently erected by the Colonel, and, by the bye, would have been present at Friday night's banquet but for ...

The Dairying Industry. A DIRECTOR'S OPINION. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 8 August 1902
Tlie Dairying Industry. — \j ? A DIRECTOE'S OPINION. At Saturday's meeting of Molong Dairy Company, a letter was presented from one of the Directors, Mr. C. Miller, J.P., of Cumnock, apologising for his absence owing to ill health. In his characteristic style Mr. Miller deplored his inability to attend the meeting, for fear that some of the shareholders may think that he was afraid to face them. Writes Mr. Miller :- ' There are many who say ' Did I not tell you so— that here in the west butter factories cannot thrive ?' Now instead of the drought proving this, it proves the very opposite. If we get rain this or any future month, three weeks from that rain, if we have any cows left, we will have an income with which to keep the wolf from the door. Can that be said of the wheat-growing industry ? After buying seed and re-sowing you may get a crop in sixteen months — and, mind, you have to risk wet weather, hail, frosts, rust, &c, during that time. And those who are feeding the...
THE LAND ACT. To the Editor of the ARGUS. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 8 August 1902
THE LAND ACT. To the Editor of the Abods. 8m,— Mr. Hall, M.L.A., is moving, through the medium of your valuable paper, to get land thrown open for settlement instead of having it locked up for years under leases. There is a far more important matter than this — indeed this indirectly is included in it — which ought to engage the attention of people in this district. Most of the 0. P. holders took up their land with the right to increase their holdings at any time after they had selected the first portion. But Parliament has broken this part pf the bargain and unblush ingly Bays that it does noi intend to allow the selector or his heirs to carry out that portion of the agreement. If a private person were to try such a seheme, he would be promptly engaged in a Supreme Court action to compel him to allow the agreement to be carried out in its entirety. There are many persons in the Molong district who would be prepared to spend both money and energy in turning waste lands into producti...

Cudal News. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 8 August 1902
Cuclal Hews. ? u [Fbom our own Correspondent.! The article by ' Rusticus ' on our little town drew my attention to tbe fact that very few items of news have been finding their way to your columns of late, from here, aqd I thought it was little wonder that the aforesaid writer inferred that tbe divergence of the railway from tbe original- route had given Cudal its quietus. But bad be interviewed tbe firm of Ktueo ranter during tneir Coronation Sale, his opinions would have been considerably modified, for I have it on good authority that, despite the drought, their receipts were larger than on any previous similar occasion. The drought fiend ^till holds sway, and the butchers have the greatest difficulty in procuring suitable stock. I do not know of a stack of hay in the district. Mr. B. G. Glasson has been and is still a heavy loser of sheep. At Boree, Mr. Lance Smith is beginning to lose, and the farmers around are anxiously looking for the appearance of crops, but I suppose '.* thi...

Things in General. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 8 August 1902
Things in General. The determination of Captain — or rather Lieutenant ? Colonel — Claude Smith to cut up, at an early date, his Nandillyan Station property lor the purpose of inducing agricultural settlement, is one that will readily be commended by all who have 'the rise and progress of Molcng district at heart. It has been but too plainly uppaicuu iiu vuc ohuud, no won aa uv the residents, that the reason Molong has not advanced with that rapidity characteristic of a go-ahead centre, is that it is too tightly bedimed in on all sides by station properties, the owners of which only but recently conceived the idea of combining agri culture with the pastoral industry. Time and again the remark has been made that Molong would never ad vance un|il an Act, embracing the provisions of Closer Settlement, was passed and became the compulsory law of the land. ?? ? ? There is no gainsaying the fact that the unlocking of the many estates — let us say the agricultural portion of them — with wh...
