NOVEL LAND BOARD CASE. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 11 April 1906

NOVEL LAND BOARD CASE. A wire from Gunnedah dated Thursday says : — The Land Board, as reconstruct ed, sat to-day on the appeal case of Messrs. Morse, Nelson, and Cleg-g, against Mr. M'Gregor, involving- the claim to a block of 1500 acres of Crown land, in which the applications conflicted. Messrs. Poate, chairman, and W. J. Clon an, the recently-appointed members who had been sitting on current business, re tired, and Messrs. Watt and Newman pro ceeded to hear arguments on the evidence taken at a previous sitting. Mr. M'Don ald, who appeared for M'Gregor, lodged the following objections to the con stitution of the board : — '(1) That the present members did not hear the whole of the evidence given in the case, and that these cases should be heard by Messrs. Rennie, Newman, and Crawford (the members who first heard the evidence). (2) That the appointment of Mr.- Watt as acting-chairman is con trary to law, as there w.as_ at the time a chairman of the Land Board, who had not, been, s...

LOCAL GOVERNMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 11 April 1906

LOCAL GOVERNMENT. The early inauguration of Local Government, as provided in the Shires Act, is a matter that should engage the earnest attention of all country residents. The alteration of the system from free-and-easy political patronage to a methodical business-like policy by which each country district will manage its own . dLuans, is ueciuecuy a progressive step ; and now that the Government have performed their part and en acted the necessary legislation, it remains for country residents to re cognise their responsibilities and to take such steps as will ensure the management of their local affairs being placed in proper hands. The Shire Councils elections are to take place during November next. In the meantime, so that the Act may be properly launched, the in augurating Council will be appoint ed by the Government. If the Gov ernment display the same commend able spirit in considering the nomin ations of the branches of our Asso ciation as was done in regard to the amendments...

THE LAND. ANSWERS TO INQUIRIES. All inquiries from farmers and settlers concerning: subjects relating- 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 copcerning which they may be in doubt, and we shall do our best to supply reliable answers to their questions. F. W. Knapman (Casino) asks: — A. took up a Conditional Purchase in 1890 of 500 acres, and in 1904 A. took up a Con ditional Lease of 471 acres (A. could not take the Conditional Lease before as the land was reserved for railway purposes). When the Conditional Lease was survey ed in 1904 a road was marked right around the Conditional Lease. In 1905 B. selects land along1 the other side of the road on the northern boundary. B. has since obtained permission to enclose the road between his selection '. and A.'s Conditio...

WHO IS THE PERJURER? [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 11 April 1906

WHO IS THE PERJURER ? The latest development in connection with the Lands Inquiry is that Mr. Crick has categorically denied receiving', various sums from Mr. Peter Close in considera tion of his sanctioning' improvement leases, and has g'one the length of declar ing- that the latter is 'a liar.' Any. money handed to him by the indemnified witness was, he explains, in the nature of a loan, and he never received a farthing' corrupt ly in his life from Mr. Willis or anybody else. 'I was one of the most surprised mr-n in i'hp rrmntrv.' the p.v-Ministcr boldly asserted, 'when I found that there were such 'mugs' about as to pay Willis ? for what they could get for themselves by coming' to the department.' It will be for Mr. Justice Owen to consider Mr. Crick's firm denial in conjunction with Mr. Peter Close's original circumstantial story, and ascertain, if he can, who is the perjurer. Having1 been contemptuously branded as 'a liar,' Mr. Peter Close may now stir up his memory to recollec...

A POLICY OF NEGATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 11 April 1906

A POLICY OF NEGATION. The great drawback in connection with Mr. Reid's anti-Socialistic crusade is that it amounts to a policy of negation. Soc ialism is an all-embracing- term taken to mean all sorts of thing-s. Many desirable objects may be classed as socialistic, and it is insufficient for Mr. Reid to declare that he is simply anti-Socialistic. He proposes to smite the Labor party hip and thigii, but if he succeeds what is he g-oing' vw -v*w . it 11v.11 *«v* nciJ 111 Ulll\_t» lie lyl c*l*ll\*~ ally did nothing-. Is he going to repeat his performance, supposing- he is once more placed in power? Let him bring some constructive policy before the peo ple, and he will have -a much better chance of winning their attention and sup port. Will he do anything- to stem the tide of Socialism, and upset what has al ready been achieved in that direction ? In his own camp it is to be noted that he is not getting- the support which the leader of a great political cause should have. Mr. Bruce Smi...

RIFT IN THE LABOR LUTE. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 11 April 1906

RIFT IN THE LABOR LUTE. Though Mr. W. Kidston, the Queens-/ land Premier, is a Labor man, he is em-' phatically against the co-operative 'Com- monwealth notion, 'because,' he says, 'I have never been able to conceive any co-operative Commonwealth system that would not restrict individual liberty./^ That we are travelling, in the direction of^u Socialism', I think, is evident to everyone, * and yet I don't believe the end of it will be a co-operative Commonwealth. I hope and believe, although I- don't see either a method or a reason for it, that men of a later generation will find a way to get a maximum of social good by abolishing social evils with a minimum interference with personal liberty. It is not any par ticular 'ism' that men are concerned about, but a rational enjoyable life for thems'elves, their wives, and their chil dren.' Regarding the split in the Queensland Labor party, Mr. Kidston says if the party is wise the disagreement will be fixed up. The reason the Queens land...

THE FEDERAL MUDDLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 11 April 1906

THE FEDERAL MUDDLE. The neglect of the Prime Minister to announce a straight-out programme of action has unquestionably weakened his former weak position, and he is now a most debilitated creature in the hands of the Labor party. His chance of raising the tariff question to any prominence at present is reported by the Melbourne cor respondent of the 'Telegraph' to be very feeble, and it is stated that attention is concentrating on the anti-socialistic is sue raised by Mr. Reid. No doubt the wish is father to the thought, but there is nn rlmitat t-lint- Air l'^-»nt#in ic rrnfrtinfr mnra ..W ^.VSV.I^l VI. ..V Kill IWUItlll * -J ^Wtlll^ A**\y*^ and more discredited.

THE SOCIALISTIC DEBATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 11 April 1906

THE SOCIALISTIC DEBATE. Although considerable interest was tak en in the debate on Socialism between Mr. Reid and Mr. Holman, its value as a logical discussion was not great. Essen tial points were not argued out thorough ly, the disputants endeavouring to cover too much ground in the short intervals of time allotted alternately to them, and lay ing thems'elves out to a large extent to piease tneir partisans oy a set or. asser- tions having little co-relation. Mr. Holman, who is deputy-leader of the Labor party in the New South Wales Assembly, was fervent and enthusiastic in his advocacy of the State taking con trol of monopolies, while Mr. Reid bright ened his anti-socialistic sallies with con siderable humor, besides' talking a good deal of sound sense. The debate extend ed over two nights, but the speakers prac tically exhausted their main points at their first meeting. They can be reduced to a nutshell. On the one hand, Mr. Hol man based his iustification for wantimr the' State ...

A RUNAWAY OSTRICH. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 11 April 1906

A RUNAWAY OSTRICH. There was an exciting chase after a runaway ostrich at South Head the other day. There is an ostrich farm in the locality, from which a lucrative feather trade is derived. The bolting bird was one of a flock of sixty, and becoming alarmed by the pranks of some playful calves, knocked down a galvanised iron fence which separated it from freedom, and started off in the direction of Sydney. Then the fun commenced. Men, boys, and clogs .loinccl 111 active pursuit or the valuable giant bird, and the hunt ex tended over miles of rough country. The ostrich plunged boldly through all sorts of obstacles, knocking down not a few fences, and got as far as the Rose Bay golf links. Here it became exhausted, and ultimately fell down on the South Head road, alongside the tram line. The pursuing party wasted no time in making the bird their prisoner, and returned it to the farm in a cart, for it sulked - and resolutely refused to walk.

FOR SWEET LIBERTY. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 11 April 1906

FOR SWEET LIBERTY. The tale of how French convicts risked their lives for liberty by traversing two thousand miles of ocean recalls the ven turesome voyages of Australian convicts in the old days. Some weeks ago, six refugees from New Caledonia were found on the island of New Britain in an ex hausted and emaciated condition. On be ing questioned, they related that with ten other convicts they escaped from Noumea about a year ago. They constructed rafts from barrel staves, and rigging them with frail sails, committed themselves hope fully to the Pacific. One of the rafts occupied by the six men who have lived to tell their remarkable story safely pass ed through winds and storms, and after a journey representing about 2000 miles, reached an uninhabited portion of New Britain. For four months they wandered in search of a civilised locality, and ulti mately were found by white people and taken to Herbertshoe. One of them ship ped on an American schooner and an other got a post as engin...

REVENUE RETURNS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 11 April 1906

REVENUE RETURNS. The March revenue returns for this State show a reduction of the expansion which has recently taken place, and but for a good haul under the uncertain heading of stamps, the increase would have been slight indeed. The diminish ed receipts from Western lands has con duced to a decrease of .£12,345 in the land revenue. Mr. Carruthers, however, is satisfied that the year will end well, and intimates that while the expenditure gen erallv is hfiintr kent down in thp. mean time, a little extra money is to be spent on road works. Things are now begin ning to look up in Victoria, the revenue for last quarter showing an increase of £230,935. The Premier (Mr. Bent) has estimated the revenue for the year at .67, 145,753, and as only £1,406,960 is re quired to make it up, a substantial sur plus is expected.

NOTES AND COMMENTS. THE FEDERAL SESSION. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 11 April 1906

NOTES AND COMMENTS. THE FEDERAL SESSION. The coming Federal session is not like ly to be prolific of tangible results. Three measures which are sure to involve the Representatives in prolonged discussion are the Old Age Pensions, Navigation, and Encouragement of Industries Bills. The last-mentioned — the Bill introduced by Sir William Lyne in December last, ' For the Preservation of Australian In dustries and the Repression of Commer cial Trusts' — is described by the 'Daily Telegraph' as a 'startling measure in deed.' Under the definitions contained in it, that journal considers that 'the vendors of any proprietary articles, or their agents, and even public companies, could be declared to be 'commercial trusts,' while any competition between imported and local goods, which 'would probably lead to the Australian goods be ing either withdrawn, or sold at a loss unless produced at a lower remuneration of labor,' would be 'unfair competition,1 and as such, the importation of such goods...

STEWARDS AT SHOWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 11 April 1906

— ▼ — STEWARDS AT SHOWS. As a correspondent of the 'Sydney Morning Herald' points out, the valuable work performed by stewards at shows is a matter which should be considered in relation to the single judge system. It is quite true that the stewards have more to do with the success or failure of a show than the judges. A bad steward, igno rant of rules, discourteous, and never in his' place when wanted, will choke off more exhibitors than a judge who occa sionally creates a little dissatisfaction. The exhibitor only sees the judge tor an hour, or less', during the show, and once ' a decision is given that official interests him no more. But the steward should be in his place every 'morning to see that everything is all right, and can' do a lot by the display of a little tact. The best way that stewards can be helped is by ap pointing single judges only.. Three judges often have different ideals, and spend much time in useless' argument, to the distraction of the steward. It is a goo...

THE TASMANIAN ELECTIONS. The recent elections in Tasmania have resulted in the direct representation of Labor in the Assembly being increased from four to seven members. It is the same old story. Apathy and want of cohesion among the general body of elec tors arid splendid organisation and defi nite aims on the part of the Trades Com mittees. When the Trades Hall people have completely captured the control of the legislative machines of the Common wealth and States other parties may gain sense, and concentrate their efforts a little more.

A PROGRESSIVE LAND TAX. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 11 April 1906

A PROGRESSIVE LAND TAX. What Mr. Watson seems most bent upon at the present juncture is a pro gressive land tax. There is no uncertain sound about Mr. Watson's voice when he talks politics, and he informs us that he 'cannot agree at all with Mr. Deakin when he says that a progressive land tax is necessarily bound up with the prob lem of the State debts and the general financial relations between the Common wealth and the States. The proposal for it iJiuy icssive iauu iax on unimprovea values is not put forward with a view to raising revenue, and it cannot yield any large amount if it succeeds in its in tentions. If it were put forward as a revenue-producing instrument, I admit it would be a question for consideration in conjunction with the financial relations between the Commonwealth and the States, but in the shape in which our party is advocating it, it is not connected with those questions, and remains for de cision on the other, and perhaps more im portant issue of finding land...
