LOCAL ADMINISTRATION AND SETTLERS. A Co-operative Body. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 August 1914

LOCAL ADMINISTRATION AND SETTLERS. A Co-operative Body. At a recent meeting of settlers the Commissioner, amongst other matters, mentioned that he regarded the local ad ministration and the settlers in the light of members of the one co-operative body in so far as the existence of the local ad ministration depended on the settlers, and without the local a3ministration the re quirements of the settlers could not be met. The local administration may Be di vided into two headings (1) System under which the organisa tion is carried out, and (2) The officials who carry out the system, * The Commissioner has, the responsibility for the system, and if tfys system is in any way inefficient and does not meet the requirements of the settlers he will be pleased at any time to receive per sonal suggestions from any settler who feels he can demonstrate where the sys tem could be improved to better meet the requirement of the vSettkment.

IMPLEMENTS FOR A 10 ACRE BLOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 August 1914

IMPLEMENTS FOR A 10 ACRE BLOCK. A settler has preferred the following request:-"What implements are neces sary for a 10-acre block? Please advise." It is assumed that the 10-acre block has " been planted. If not, it will of course be necessary for more implements to be pro vided than are referred to in this reply. No doubt, however, the assumption is correct, and the settler inquiring only de sires to know what permanent | imple ments he should provide. It is folso as sumed that the settler intends to do all his own work. Working under these assumptions, the most important part of the settler's equipment tor an orchard block would be a good, stout, medium draught horse, together with the necessary harness and swings. The cost should be somewhere about £34. Horse £30, harness £2 10s., swings, etc., from £1 to £2. He will require one single-furrow plough at a cost of from £3 to £4. An implement with a wooden beam is, perhaps, the most suitable implement, but a plough of the same kind ...

Berseem or "Egyptain Clover." [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 August 1914

or "ngvDtian »» Clover. As a result of the paragraph which re cently appeared in the "Record" regard ing the possibilities of Berseem, a num ber of inquiries have been made by set tlers interested. In the circumstances, it was thought advisable to communicate with Professor Perkins, the Principal of the Roseworthy Agricultural College, South Australia, who has interested him self largely in the introduction of this fodder plant. Professor Perkins has very kindly supplied a lot of information, 'from which the following is culled. The cover ing letter received from Professor Perkins is worth quoting in full. Special atten tion is directed to the passages which have been .printed in heavy type. , "I have f your enquiry in reference to Egyptian plover, which we have tested on a fairly-large scale for three successive seasons.

Vegetable Experiment Plot. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 August 1914

Vegetable Experiment Plot. Settlers are aware that some time ago the Commissioner decided to establish a vegetable experiment plot for this pur- pose of obtaining data for the guidance of those who intend to go in largely for vegetable growing. An area of 14 acres has been set aside at Petersham, and the work is to be purely experimental, al- though, of course, an effort will be made to cut down the expense as much as pos- sible. The project should not, however, be considered in any sense a commercial proposition. Experiments are to be carried out with every vegetable likely to be profitable, both for growing for the fresh vegetable market, and for canning or any other pur- pose. This work is being controlled by the experimentalist of the Department of Agriculture. The Department supplies seed and manure, as is done in the case of experiments carried out by private settlers under the supervision of the De-   partment, but the expense in connection with the laying out of...

PERMANENT PASTURES. Work of the Department of Agriculture. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 August 1914

PERMANENT PASTURES. Work of the Department of Agriculture. The matter of t}ie best grasses for the prevision of permanent pastures was re cently discussed with Mr. E. Breakwell, .Agrostologist, Department of Agricul ture, who is directly interested in experi mental work on these lines. He stated that Mr. Fry's remarks in a recent issue of the " Irrigation Record" «as to the department's lack of enterprise in the matter were hardly correct, since the. de partment was taking a very keen interest indeed in the subject. Recently over 100 packages of various grass seeds were dis tributed to settlers in various parts of the State, but only in about 6 per cent, of the cases were satisfactory reports re ceived. The great majority of the fail ures was probably due to the difficulty which has always been met with in ob taining satisfactory results under arti ficial conditions from the planting of seeds collected from wild grasses and plants. This difficulty is well known to anyone who has tri...

The Jubilee Show of the Wagga So ciety is to be held on the 25th, 26th, and 27th of this month, and in view of the special nature of the function, the com mittee desires to make it <as attractive as possible. The Commissioner is arranging for an exhibit of pictures illustrating the 'Irrigation Areas to be forwarded to Wagga from Sydney, and though it is not .possible to arrange for an official exhibit from the Areas, it is desired to bring the matter under the notice of settlers who may wish to exhibit. A few copies of the official list of classes, prizes, & c., are available, and can be obtained on application.

CUTTING FENCES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 August 1914

CUTTING FENCES. Reports are continually being received of damage done to fences, and although it must be admitted that teamsters and others have absolutely no respect for the Commissioner's property, yet the fact re mains that many settlers on thie Areas who should know better are almost as bad. They drive cattle through and over fences just as the spirit moves them, and although the result means endless trouble and annoyance to other settlers as well as to the Commissioner's officers in charge of agistment stock, these facts seem to influence them not at all. Nothing whatever can be said in justi fication for actions of this kind, and set tlers who, to serve their own selfish ends, are prepared to damage fences to such an extent to render them useless for keep ing stock in different paddocks sieparate, are deserving of no consideration. A very bad case of the kind has just been brought under notice by a settler, who complains ^ he has had stock art agistment in .the ' West Gogieldr...

Settlers' Meeting. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 August 1914

The third meeting of settlers under the new conditions was held in the Officers' Clubroom on Tuesday, the 5th instant. In view of the fact that Mr. C. E. D. Meares, of the Coastal Farmers' Co-opera tive Society, was to address the gather ing after the ordinary business had been concluded, the number present was no doubt larger than it would have been under other circumstances, but i t is hoped the attendance will be maintained at future gatherings, as there should always be something of a sufficiently important nature to lure settlers to L ee ton. The following matters were discussed : Instructions to Settlers,-At a recent meeting of the Stony Point branch of the Settlers' Association this matter was considered, and it was decided to bring it under the Commissioner's notice with a view to seeing whether some al teration could not be made in the pre sent system which would (1) Allow of more frequent visits be ing made to settlers by the Commission er's instructors.

WASTE OF WATER. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 August 1914

-7-- -t. - 3 WASTE OF WATER. Already this season it would appear thfat many settlers have failed to learn the liesson that so many efforts have been! made to teach in regard to the pro per use of water. Although only a few firms have been irrigated at the time of writing, there are indications all over the Areas that water is being wasted in considerable quanti ties. Drainage channels are running "a banlker," and worse st:11. in some cases mads have been partially flooded. More over, these effects a?re to be seen adjacent to farms that have been in occupation for a considerable time, consequently the lessees should have learnt the lesson of economically using water by now. It is not intended to Larrass 's3':i»trs any more than can be helped, but ths waste of water cannot be allowei lo continue. Unless settlers take staps to prevent the loss, it will be necess=uy for the le gulations to be put into force against them.

General Notes. WAR AND THE FACTORIES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 August 1914

General Notes. WAR AND THE FACTORIES. It is early to say what effect the war will have on the finances of the Irri gation Scheme, but if it continues for any length of time, it is bound to have a very serious effect indeed. Not only so, but there is a great probability that the machinery ordered from over seas fior the bacon and canning factories will not be available when, anticipated. Every effort is, however, being mlade to keep faith with the settlers in both of these matters. As far as the canning factory is con cerned, the building is nearing com pletion, and settlers passing the struc ture can see for themselves that it is sufficiently large to meet the require ments of the Areas for a considerable time to come. Even if the machinery ordered is not available, it is the in tention to instal a smaller plant, which will in all probability meet the require ments of the coming season as far as vegetables are concerned. The fullest information in regard to this matter will ba publi...

COMMON ERRORS IN IRRIGATION. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 August 1914

COMMON ERRORS IN IRRIGATION. The following notes have been written specially for the Mirrool settlers, but the information given 'is just as applicable to those at the Yanco end, and it is there fore commended to their earnest con sideration : From personal observation during the last week's watering on this area I have noticed several farms which have not been effectively nor economically irri gated. . Settlers have been trying to cover far too great an area at one time, with the consequence that the "work done" by a given quantity of water is reduced to a minimum. Every settler should know the work expected, and the work that can be done by a supply of two or three cusecs, as the case may be, providing true irriga tion principles are used. With a supply de livered from the meter of 2 to cusecs the ground that can be effectively flood ed (provided it is correctly ditched and graded and not "slummed over" as some settlers seem to think is quite sufficient) is fully 12 acres in 24 ho...

VEGETABLE CANNING. Owing to the pressure of work in con nection with the obtaining of machinery, &c., for the canning" factory, Mr. Harri son, the processor, has been unable so far to pay visits to settlers as he intends to do. It is,.however, hoped that be will be in a position to call on most of the likely vegetable growers in the vicinity of Leeton within a short time. It is not the Commissioner's intention that Mr. Harrison should give instruc tion, but rather that he should advise settlers as to the amounts and varieties of vegetables that he will be able to handle at the factory, 'as this informa tion will be of great value to them in connection with their planting arrange ments .

SUSPENSION OF RENTS AND WATER RATES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 August 1914

SUSPENSION OF RENTS AND WATER RATES. A considerable amount of misconception appears to exist in the minds of settlers on the matter of suspension of rents, and a few words on this subject will perhaps not be out of place. In 'the first place it cannot be pointed out too strongly that the Commissioner is under a statutory obligation to collect rent, and the only op tion for a settler who is not in a position to meet his liability in this regard is to eiiher apply for suspension of rent on the form provided for that purpose or to take advantage of the Amending Savings Bank Act and apply for a loan, portion of which could be used in paying the rent. In the case of settlers who would only be en titled to a small loan from the Govern ment Savings Bank, the question arises as to whether it would not be a better financial proposition to apply for suspen sion of rent. In the first place, there would be no charges for inspection and no charge for a mortgage, as would be the case in connectio...
