COMMERCE €> BUSINESS SHORTAGE OF FOOD IN GREAT BRITAIN. Australian Markets Affected. British Merchants State Reserves Must be Built Up Before Ex port Trade is Resumed. The following letter has been re ceived from Messrs. Crosse aud Black well, Ltd., London, dated January 6:— "Although an armistice has been signed our export business is not at all likely to be resumed on anything li'ie normal conditions until the end of the year. The war has lasted now for four and a half years, during which period prac tically all stocks of raw materials have been used up, so that it will be neces sary for the country to build up re serves before the War Trade Depart ment will be likely to lift the embargo to any great extent 011 foodstuffs. First of all, the shortage will have to be made up in our own country, as well as in France, Italy, Serbia and Koumania. It will also be necessary to send sup plies to the Central Powers, so that we are not likely to be in a position to execute orders for a c...

WHEAT SCRIP BEARS MAY SUFFER SEVERELY. Oversold, They Are Said to Be Scheming to Find Out Way to Cut Losses. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 14 March 1919
WHEAT SCRIP BEARS MAY SUFFER SEVERELY. Oversold, They Are Said to Be Scheming to Find Out Way to Cut Losses. No notice need be taken of a state ment that has been posted anonymously to the managers of banks throughout the State, and to leading commercial men, Joseph Palmer and Sons write. The identity of those who h.ive distri buted the article in question is pretty well known. They consist of outside people, not connected in any way with the Stock Exchange, but who, haviu£ oversold the 1917-18 Scrip to a danger ous extent when it was low, sure now at their wits end to cover "without losing heavily. Nevertheless, the • W&eat Board should issue a statement denying the charge that the "C" 1917-18 pool is likely, to be shuffled for the benefit g>; the 'VB" 1916-17 pool. It would bo manifestly unfair to credit the ' • 3 pool with any of the proceeds of foreign sales, unless "B" grain -were delivered in the pme proportion, as suc?h a p'rac trice would leave the "'C,; pool sadd...

WOOL IN AMERICA BRINGS LOW PRICES. Big Increase in Number of Ealss Shipped Over Previous Seasons. Details to hand in connection with the recent sale of Australian and Ameri can grown wool in Boston ?how that, whilst lines of Australian carbonised sorts made good prices, the auctions were very -Hat generally, and a sharp line was drawn between choice fine wools and other grades, stat-js the Syd ney Wool Selling Brokers' Association. Buyers showed no interest m most of the lots offered. Whilst fine clothing wools made up to Government prices, values wTere extremely variable, and sometimes ruled far below the Govern ment level. There was no speculative buying, and the competition came en tirely from mills requiring a little wool to tide them over the transition period. There- has recently been a great in crease in the volume of shipping, and during February no less than 142,110 bales were shipped, as against 42,845 bales in January and 28,723 bales in February last season.

NEW80LL) SILICA BRICK CO. , Prrpnralory work is in progress for the ercction of buildings for the .Newbdid Silica Brick Company at \v arati'.li. The euinpany already has extensive works at Lithgow, and since the com mencement of the war they have been supplying .silica bricks for all the steel making and copper-refining plants hi | the Commonwealth. Until recently the firm manufactured their silica bricks from quartzite, which they have been mining in the vicinity of the Lithgow works, but they are now engaged in opening up large deposits of quartzito at Ulladulla, 011 the south coast, says t.lie Newcastle Morning "Herald." Th® silica bricks made from this material have given results, according to expert opinion, equal to if not better than any brick in the world. As the Broken HiU Proprietary. Company is by far the larg est buyer oi the firm 's product, and as ' it was realised that Newcastle waj ths j centre of the steel-making industry, the Newcastle district offered consider abl...

FARM CROP COMPETITIONS LEAD TO BEHER FARMING What Nhill Can Prove. Wor &lt; Performed in Careful Manner Will Mean More Profits in tbe End. The influence of good methods anl the measure in which healthy competi tion will contribute in forcing them under the notice of farmers, are testi fied by a reference in the Victorian '' Journal of Agriculture'' to farm crop competitions which have been held in the Nhill district of that State every year except 1914 for the past seventeen years. A perusal of the Nhill records (says the judge of a competition which has been initiated in another pa?t of "Vic toria) "shows that the successive com petitions (at Nhill) 'have stimulated and maintained a live interest, first of all in inanurial and in cultural pro blems, such as the better working of the fallows. For instance, in 3 903 tiie judge was pleading for the introduction of superphosphate, and later, attention was insistently directed to the care and attention to seed. Finally, as the r...

NORTHERN PEOPLE. :=D cr ARMIDALE'S NEW MAYOR. Alderman Hawke's Fine Record. Alderman "W. J. Hawke has been elected Mayor of Armidale for the ensuing year. The honor is not a new one to him. Nine years ago he filled a similar position with singular success. For very many years he has served the ratepayers faithfully and well as an alderman, and in every other branch of the virile public life of that city he has taken his part. He is, perhaps, one of the best known personalities upon the Tableland. G-len Jnnes has the honor of being his birthplace, although he lias reside 1 in Armidale 'for the greater part of his life. He is straight forward almost to a fault, and nobody is more admired on account of this characteristic. His generous nature has rcade for him many friends throughout Uie district. The same liberality applies to his views upon everything with which he is brought into contact. He is one of the most tolerant and broadminded men in Armidale. A true lover of sport, hs has i...
DAIRY FARMING—HOW TO SUCCEED. Selection of Herd. Farmer With 15 Years Experience Says Lucerne is Best Fodder for Cattle. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 14 March 1919
DAIRY FARMING HOW TO SUCCEED. Selection of Herd. Farmer With 15 Years Experience Says Lucerne is Best Fodder for Cattle. "To be a successful dairyman," said Mr. Ivcn Kirkham, in a paper read be fore the Ashbourne branch of the South Australian Agricultural Bureau, one should pay close attention to ths following points:—Selection of herd, culling, locality, quietness in handling, cleanliness, and feed and general man agement. j In selecting the herd, if one had no ! previous experience in dealing with j cows, it was advisable to obtain the j opinion of some capable judge of dairy- ; ing stock. It was on the first cows of the herd that so much depended, namely, the class of stock that the herd would eventually consist of. and the profit that would be derived from tho cattle. The cow. 'best suited for dairying work, and one which, from experience, he favored, was one at about second or third calf, fine bone, sharp features, wide across the bridge at back below the tail, good escutcheon...

COOLONGOLOOK GOLD. It is stati'ii that ;i syndicate is being formed with a capital of £1000 to pros pect for gold on some of the leefs near (Joolongolook.

SOME HILL END ORE SHOWS RICH GOLD. The tributors at the Amalgamated mine started crushing during the week. The stone being broken shows very rich gold.

The dams at this mine are now full of water, and this will very much assist crushing operations.— -Our Mudgee correspondent.
BELLINGEN WANTS A SHORT RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 14 March 1919
BELLINGEN WANTS A SHORT RAILWAY. The Bellinger River bar is again in a, troublesome state for shipping, and again has the matter been brought for ! ward of urging on the Government the necessity of constructing a small length of railway from Raleigh terminus to deep water in the Bellinger River, so that merchandise, produce, timber, etc., could be landed direct from river drogh ers into railway trucks and forwarded to Coff's Harbor for shipment, thus avoiding considerable delay. The matter has been persistently brought before the Chamber of Com merce by its president, Mr George Suthrien, and it has been decided again to urge upon the Railway Commission ers the necessity of constructing the half-mile length of railway required. It has been stated that there are some 20 specially constructed timber trucks ly in.sr idle at Coff 's Harbor end of the railway which could be utilised if the line mentioned was established.
M[?]L MINING AT ATTUNGA. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 14 March 1919
MCLYBDENITL MINING AT v AT1UNGA. Development work at the Great Boulder molybdenite property, Attunga, is being carried &lt;;n in a most satisfac tory manner. The tunnel, which is being driven to cut Nelson's line of lode, is now in ilfi feet. It is expected that the lode will be cut when another 5 or 13 feet have, been driven. This lode has been opened up by trenching, and proved to be continuous along the surface for a distance of 200 feet, and it is showing payable molybdenite for the whole distance. Operations on the 12 chain lode have ceased temporarily, thus enabling an extra shift to be put on, to hasten completion of the tunnel now being driven to cut Nelson's reef. Prospects are particularly encouraging, and developments during the coming fortnight should prove the property a most valuable one, as the indications are most favorable, and it is hop,ed that Nelson's reef when cut in the tunnel will warrant the erection of a plant for crushing and treating.

Alleged Government Profiteering in Wool. SOUTH AFRICAN CLIP. John Bridge & Company Show Why Rumours Regarding Imperial Government are False. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 14 March 1919
Alleged Government Profiteering in Wool. SOUTH AFRICAN CLIP. John Bridge & Company Show Why Rumours Regarding Im perial Government are False. There has been some outside criti cism of late of the Imperial Govern inent's attitude in connection with the acquisition of the Australian wool clip. It is assumed that vast profits havi been made by the Imperial .Govern ment 's attitude in connection with thg acquisition of the Australian wool clip. It is assumed that vast profits have been made by the Imperial Govern ment out of its purchases, and the open wool markets of South Africa are cited as an example of what would have hap pened in Australia, and probably New Zealand, if our markets had been equally open. The i-nticism referred to is extremely .superficial, write John Bridge & Co., Ltd., of Sydney, and does not take into consideration the fact that the South African wool growers themselves, after testing an appraisement market and ai» open market, insistently urged u...
