AUSTRALIA'S GREATEST NEED. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 March 1906
/ AUSTRALIA'S GREATEST NEED. Obviously the only way to ensure a reasonable chance of freedom to realise our national aspirations, is by taking to heart the well-meant advice of President Roosevelt. It is ? '* true that our people are at last show ing signs of awakening to their critical position, and the encourage ment of immigration is beginning to ? be talked about as a national neces sity. More than that, as a natural reflex, our State authorities have ac tually made a oractical movement (although of microscopic dimen sions) in the desired direction, and, out of a gross revenue of eleven millions, have decided - to devote £2000 (no less!) to the purpose this year. Such prodigality could only have been decided upon after grave consideration, and Parliament is to be congratulated upon its 'broad minded approval of this extensive appropriation from revenue, as well as upon its sublime disregard of the . y. possible dire consequences of earn I ing the disapproval of the Sydney I Labo...

Branch Reports — continued. JINCELLIC AND OURNIE. THE SIZE OF MESH. The following resolution was passed to be forwarded on to the Executive Council of the Association : — 'The Jingellic and Ournie Branch of the F. and S. Associa tion endorses the action of the Hume P.' P. Board in recommending three sizes of mesh to be used in the construction of wire netting, and urges upon the Govern ment to expedite the supply to the small holders ; and it expreses the opinion that at the high price quoted for the 42 x ii wire netting very few of them could afford to erect fences of that class in this dis trict. :'
IGNORANCE IN RUSSIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 March 1906
IGNORANCE IN RUSSIA. Of the 130,000,000 subjects of the Czar, 93 per cent, can neither read nor write, and what is still worse, they cannot even think for themselves. The result is that be tween the wealthy, educated aristocracy andr the poor, ignorant, common- people, there is no middle class, and no public opinion. There is an abundance, of , cheap strong liquor to be had, and ' in-' , toxication is naturally the great I ' and only amusement of the people. When;* an heir was born to the Russian throne, the event was celebrated in almost, reyplting way i'by, i three-quarters of| th'e ]\ population-; of the' capital' getting drunk.'7 This.nyretctied condition of the people is directly,: traceable to the Government un der f\vhich they live. It is^completely'buf '' off joint, and to persons wlib know what freedom' is,'1 to go 'to Russia -is^ like ap-r ? proaching an iceberg. — ' Onward.'
STRINGENT ACTION URGED. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 March 1906
STRINGENT ACTION URGED. A wire from Germanton says : — At the last meeting of the Hume Pas tures Protection Board the chairman, Mr. John Ross, referred to the unsatisfactory manner in which many landowners were dealing with, the question of rabbit de struction. He said that he was adopting., more extreme measures. The only way the board could make people accept their responsibility would be by enforcing sec tions 52 to 54 of the Act. When the board was confident that a holder was not doing his duty, let them place men on at tne owner's expense to kill the rabbits. Inspector Palmer said that the Act em powered the board to charge for all rab bits so destroyed. Mr. A. R. MacLaurin : 'If we put on men, every landowner will want the rab bits wiped out before paying, supposing that rabbits were thick at the end of the month?' The Chairman : 'Keep the men on for another month, and show them that the board is determined to make them clear the rabbits, and that we will do the work for them ...
SO-CALLED SOCIALISM. To the Editor "The Farmer and Settler." [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 March 1906
SO-CALLED SOCIALISM. To the Editor 'The Farmer and Settler.' Sir, — Reading the article of Mentor's on 'So-Called Socialism,' in your last issue brought to my mind the New Lord's Prayer. As the sentiments expressed in it are similar to Mentor's, you might find room for it : — Tllli NEW LORD'S PRAYER. By Morrison Davidson. Lord, keep us rich and free from toil, For we Are the honored holders of l'hy soil, Whom Socialists would now despoil With glee. Oh ! Lord, our fathers got the land For serving those whom Thy right hand Had chosen. to be great and grand As Kings. Tho' gained by fraud, we're not to blame; Thou knowest, Lord, it is a shame To say of us of landed fame Such things I Lord, let us live in wealth, content, And peace ; For we are by Thy mercy sent To rate mankind and make our rent Increase. The birds that haunt the moor and hills, Tne fish that swim in streams and rills, The beasts that roam as nature wills— We own. K'en, Lord, the minerals that lie Beneath the earth's per...
FROZEN RABBITS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 March 1906
I FROZEN RABBITS. Mi In reporting on the frozen rabbit mar ket in London the 'Fish Trades' Gaz ette and Poultry, Game, and Rabbit Trades' Chronicle' writes1 as follows, un der date Jaunary 27:— ; : 'Sydney rabbits are still taking prece dence of- sale over Melbourne, and it is thought that if nothing' happens to dis turb the .trade they should sell well when our English supply falls off in March. With one. or 1 two exceptions, the N.S.W. rabbit is reported to have been fatter and better quality all through the past sea 1 ? sun. There is evidently no anticipated dearth of supplies. Victorian firms are offering large quantities for delivery any time during the current year on a basis which looks low, even after our recent experiences. In fact, so fine are prices cut in this trade that we hear of several firms who talk of ' letting the trade severely alone.' This is not con fined to the London houses, but has ori ginated in Melbourne. In view of certain potentialities — we might say pr...

CLOSER SETTLEMENT. THE PEEL RIVER ESTATE Not only the people of the Tamworth centre, but those interested in the land throughout the State, have found some thing to speak about in the announcement that a large portion of the famous Goonoo Gobnoo ' Estate is to be brought under the ; hammer on 26th instant.

A FRIENDLY CRITIC. To the Editor, "The Farmer and Settler." [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 March 1906
A FRIENDLY CRITIC. To the Editor, 'The Farmer and Settler.'' Sir,— Congratulations. 'The Farmer and Settler' deserves success, and judging by the brainy articles and contributions will get it. This is a time of specialities, and you have hit the mark at an oppor tune time. Keep your eye on the land laws, land agents, and the Department! The Land for Settlement column is a good idea, seeing that we get the news fresh every week. 'Wombat' is versatile and vitriolic; but his scheme of combina tion amongst settlers to secure a repre sentative of their special interests is, in my opinion, only a dream, the same as socialism. We have men amongst us of all creeds' of political faith. At present our branch meetings are a sort of millen nium, politically speaking. The socialist lion lies down with the anti-socialist lambs. The same with freetraders and protectionists. Introduce politics, and at once you have discord, division, disaster. But say his scheme is practical, we have the settler an...

RABBITS DRIVE OUT TIMBER-GETTERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 March 1906
RABBITS DRIVE OUT TIMBER GETTERS. A wire from Nairabri says : — Rabbits on Boheena Creek, on the east ern boundary of the Pilliga Scrub, have destroyed the livelihood of nearly 500 men in the timber-getting industry. The cut ting of logs and sleepers has supported hundreds of teamsters and choppers for five years ; but only about forty men now remain, the rabbit having eaten up all the grass, so that stock could no longer exist, the drawing of timber thus being render ed impossible. Out of 25,000 sleepers contracted for delivery, one-fourth has been with difficulty secured. (

TRAPPERS' TRICKS. A wire from Molong says : — Dr. N. W. Kater, of Boree, has written to the Mo long P.P.

The writer felt sure that any scheme which would propose the complete extermination of the rabbit would be opposed alike by the trapper and the Labor party. The Board decided that it could not dictate to holders, so long as they did their best to cope with the plague.
INQUIRY COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 March 1906
INQUIRY COLUMN. All inquiries from farmers and settlers concerning- subjects relating1 to the land forwarded to the General Secretary of the F. and S .Association, 84 Pitt-street, Sydney, will receive special attention, and answers thereto will appear in this column from week to week. Our readers are invited to seek infor mation upon any subject concerning which they may be in doubt, and we shall do our best to supply reliable answers to their questions. C. P. R. (Narromine) asks: — A has a conditional purchase selection adjoining 13, who holds a settlement lease. Between the holding's there is a two-chains road. B has blocked the road, and is making use of A's fence. Can A compel B to pay for half the fence ? A condition attaching; to settlement lease is that it shall be fenced within five years. B would presumably have to ap ply to the Land Board for permission to enclose the road between A and B if he did not elect to fence his own boundary. Section 26 of the 1903 Act provides: '...
CITY CRITICS AND THE RABBITS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 March 1906
CITY CRITICS AND THE RABBITS. Branch Secretary Lane, of Walmer, writes: — It is often very amusing, not to say exasperating, to read some of the letters appearing in the Sydney dailies comment ing on rabbits and rabbit destruction. Every week we see letters condemning the poison cart as not only useless but almost criminal in its destruction of bird life. Of course, we can understand that those interested in the rabbit trade should decry methods which are against their business intfirfisfs. hut if i-? hnrr. to understand whv I so many people who know absolutely no p thing about the rabbit as he is in infested ;f parts should set up as judges of ways I and means of destruction. As regards the ?\h effectiveness of the poison cart to keep *he I pest within reasonable limits there is no |'-'» question, in this district, an any rate, and I as for the alleged wholesale destruction of I bird life, if true .at all, it must be where I conditions differ, very greatly from those a .governing t...
THE FIRST RAILS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 March 1906
I THE FIRST RAILS. The first railroad track was constructed b by the? Greeks as far back as 600 B.C., or 2500 years ago. The tracks were con ? structed through the mountains on the road to the temple at Delphos; and were ; to guide the wheels of the waggons? bear i ing,* sacrifices and sacred vessels thither. I Had an accident happened to the wag i1- gons en route it would have been an ill— I omen, and a . sign of the gods' displea | sure, .hence the tracks. These tracks jf were two. parallel grooves about three 1 inches apart. The cart wheels travelled IJ-. in the grooves.

NORTH-WESTERN NOTES. A Transformation. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 March 1906
NORTH-WESTERN NOTES. By 'Myall.' A Transformation. The late glorious rains have gladdened the hearts of North-western landholders, and will give a great impetus to the pas toral industry. We were on the eve of disaster when the bountiful downpour happened along; in fact, several losses of stock had already occurred. Now there is a visible tinge of green covering the black soil plains which but a fort night ago were gaping heavenwards for moisture. No doubt the rabbit plague will benefit as well as the landholder by the glorious transformation scene, and notwithstanding a prolific growth of grass the struggle will continue until our great Reform Ministry can see- its way clear to comply with the legislation providing for the supply of wire netting, and the Minister for Lands inaugurate a comprehensive scheme for the readjust ment of Crown rents on an equitable basis. ♦ * * A Friendly Shake.

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. LAST YEAR'S REPURCHASES. A Splendid Record. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 March 1906
SOUTH AUSTRALIA. LAST YEAR'S REPURCHASES. A Splendid Record. The year just closed was a particularly satisfactory one for those who believe in a policy of land repurchase for closer set tlement. The Butler and Price Govern ments between them spent ,£265,687 in buying back large estates for the use of small holders. The ordinary taxpayer who looks no further than his own poc ket might regard with apprehension the expenditure of so large a sum in one year, but he has really benefited in com mon with the whole community. A solid class of men have been settled on the repurchased lands, which are returning good revenues. Up to last September nearly half a million pounds had been spent by the State under the Repurchase Act of 1897, arjd in a return that was supplied to the Assembly at the instance of the Hon. A. Catt it was shown that the arrears in rent amounted to only ,£120 us. 6d., and in instalments of purchase money £708 19s. 2d. We were informed at the Lands Office on Tuesday that ...
THE USEFUL TRAP. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 March 1906
THE, USEFUL TRAP. By means of trapping, in 17 clays Messrs. John Davis' and Henry Burns ac counted for no less than 21,550 rabbits on Mr. McKillop's holding. Being- unable to skin such a large quantity, the weight of those which they sent to market turned the scales at the remarkable avoirdupois gitiw °f 22481bs., for which they received a ? ?.?» cheque amounting to ,£28 14s.
