AGENTS' REPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
AGENTS' REPORTS. Dalgety and Co.. Ltd.. report: Transactions in the Sydney market since our last report have been on a small scale, and confined princi pally to the disposal by private treaty of wools withdrawn out of recent sales, for which there has been an increasing inquiry. Advances on the original auction bids have been forthcoming in a number of instances, and further business of. the same nature is pending, so that the remain ing stocks are gradually diminishing. As at present, arranged, the next sales in this market will be held about April 3rd, on which date we expect to offer 3000 bales, including several well-known clips. The mar ket outlook is of. a satisfactory na ture.' as it is. now proved beyond. question that the Australian output for the current twelve months will not greatly exceed that of the. previ ous season, which disposes of the ar guments of excessive production which.' were used a short time,.back, and which,.-.'unfortunately,, had ..the effect of doing se...
THE SIXTH BRISBANE SERIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
SIXTH BRISBANE SERIES. Before it became evident that the heavy rains in Queensland would block shearing, and delay the carry ing of wool from sheds to trucking stations in the northern and central districts, it was expected that the sixth series of sales in Brisbane would But the almost continuous rain for the jiast couple of months rendered "difficult the despatch of wool to the northern'^selling "centre. A two- or three-days' sale was thus curtailed; to one day; and this took place .in Brisbane on Tuesday last, and up wards of 13,486 bales were offered. The selection .was only an average; one in the grease, but the seoureds included some attractive parcels. A large contingent of buyers from Syd ney attended the sales, and as the' supply position is now a very strong one, competition was keen, and values ruled strongly in growers' favour. The market for gootj greasy wool was-2% to o per cent., and good free seoureds, 5 per cent, above the rates ruling at the fifth' series in Januar...

The Market Mirror -r1) \-J : WOOL. GOOD PROSPECTS FOR NEXT SERIES. . Last week closed the regular sell ing season for the current statistical wool year. The close was reached a fortnight earlier- than last season; owing to early; shearing, a short break during the Xmas-New Year holidays, arid., an tminterrupted cata loguing of'the wools as-they came into'store.' Had tlie heavy rains that have fallen during the last two or three, months fallen in the late spring and early summer a different tale might have had to be written of the weekly season how at an end; for the rains would lfave delayed shear ing, .steadied the quantities of wool reaching the seaboard, and moderated the supplies at a period when every thing-was. to be gained by growers waiting, and not - rushing to sell.! When heavy. rains fell, all the clip was practically" shorn, arid the vast "bulk of it was sold.

THE WEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
THE WEATHER. Light falls have been the general order of the day for the preceding week. The North Coast has had four days wet out of the seven, and the .Hunter, Hastings, .and Manning are keeping lip big figures, by recording from 1 to nearly 5 inches in live wet days. Despite the severity of the weather since the beginning of the year, except in rare cases, good ef fects have accrued. The Dorrigo, for instance, is experiencing Hood conditions, and reports state that settlers are isolated and starving through impassable quagmires of roads, no are up against rough con ditions in their efforts to establish theinoelves. From the West down to the Riverina almost, fine condition® are prevailing, while the North West slopes to the Central Tablelands ha.v.e. averaged % an inch, the North Coast registering six wet days out oi the seven, but only reaching the half-inch total.

THE R.W.U. CLAIMS. Mr. F. \\Wtnaby (Bungulla, Ten terfield), writes:-"I notice in "The Land" of Fe.bruary 17th, 1011, that the Bungulla branch of the F. and S. Association, after careful considera tion, came to the conclusion that the claims of the rural workers were fair and reasonable. This was a very thinly attended meeting, not more than seven or eight members pre sent, and most of these were young men, who expect to receive the wages. I can assure you that there is no farmer in the district that can pay the rate of wages, or accede to the hours of work put forward in the claims of the Rural Workers' Union.
The Reader's View CONDITIONAL LEASES. Must They Be Converted? [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
=iXk =>Yr= V-/ w CONDITIONAL LEASES. Must They Be Converted? Mr. G. B. Tait, of Mullaley, writes: "It has been said tliat it is the in tention of the Minister for Lands to stop tli e conversion of .any leases into C.P. after this year. "I have gathered from what lias been published, that the intention is only to repeal the Conversion Act, and so stop the conversion of those leases to which the Act applies. "The Conditional Purchases leases were taken lip 011 the condition that the lessee could at any time during currency of lease (40 years) convert into C.P. The Crown are surely not going to repudiate this condition now. Can you tell me through "The Land" what the intention is?" [The Minister has already stated publicly that there will be 110 repu diation, and that the Government will strictly preserve all existing rights. The repeal of the Conversion Act will not affect any existing rights of conversiort of conditional leases or additional purchase leases. It will, however, affe...
PROFITABLE PRUNES. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
PROFITABLE PRUNES. From 15 acres of trees at the Wagga farm, it is estimated that at least 25 tons of prunes will lie pick ed, for which it is expected to average 8d per lb., or equal to £75 per ton. A pretty profitable crop. Fruit-growers this season had to market their fruit quickly owing to the effect of the wet weather. A lot of our country is now suffering from the unusual trouble of too much rain. That is part of the ups and downs of life on the land. You seldom know where you are, or anyway, where you are going to be before the end of a season. The Government of Tasmania have received official word to the effect that theer would be a market in Paris for 1000 cases of apples of a specified sort, as a trial shipment. A syndicate has taken the matter up in Paris. The samples sent were not regarded in Tasmania, as by any means the best varieties, but they are what the French people asked for. The syndicate is paying 4/0 per case f.o.b. at Hobart. An idea of the magnitude of the f...

PHOSPHORUS POISONING. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
PHOSPHORUS POISONING. "Phosphorus" (Wellington) writes: -There is a matter which is con tinually cropping up in all sorts of papers, and sometimes in quite un expected places, which it is high time was definitely settled one way or another. I refer to the question of whether phosphorus poisoning for rabbit destruction is so harmful to bird life as some seem to believe. Con tinually one sees letters in the daily papers blaming phosphorus poisoning for every insect pest that comes along and crying aloud that the terrible practice should be put a stop to. The latest effort in that direction is from a quarter where, at first sight, one would scarcely have expected to find it-the Labour congress. However, taking into consideration the amount of sympathy the "man on the land" generally gets from Labourites, one is tempted to think their commise ration is more for the sake of pre serving the poor rabbit than the harmless, birds. But, anyhow, what amount of destruction to bird life is phosp...
N.S.W. APPLES FOR LONDON. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
N.S.W. APPLES FOR LONDON. The ..Department of Agriculture is about to test the London market for New South Wales apples. A consign ment of 500 Imperial bushel cases from' the Bathurst Experimental Farm left the, inland city for Sydney on Monday, the 0th inst., was placed on board the P. and 0. II.M.S. India oil Tuesday. : The liner left on the following day for Ilobart, where a large crop of Tasmanians will ;be taken on board, Although the great er portion of the shipment consisted of Jonathans and Five Crowns, there were a few cases of the Cleopatra, Rome Beauty, and (Jrainiy Smith va rieties. It goes without saying that the apples were carefully chosen, and as carefully packed, so that this test of the London market should be made on reasonably favourable conditions. The result of this experiment will be awaited with considerable interest.

PEACHES FROM PERA BORE ORCHARD. Some very line specimens of peach es, of the .variety known as Pic qnet's Late, were to be seen at the Agricultural- Department, the other day., They were grown at the Pera Bore orchard, and one of them weighed 10 ox. In estimating the value of peaclilies anything over 7 ox. for a single fruit is regarded as good. Some peaches from Broken Hill, sent to Adelaide for exhibition, averaged 12 ox. each, four weighing 3 lbs. Evi dently when the West takes up the production of peaches, the coastal districts will have to look to their laurels.
GRAPES IN THE HUNTER DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
GRAPES IN THE HUNTER DISTRICT. Grape-cutting is in full swing in the vineyards on the hills around Eokolbin, one of. the famous .wine growing districts of the Hunter (says the "Mercury"), and which besides is a popular health resort, deserving to be - better known. Some of these hills rise to a height of 500 feet above the surrounding country, and the air is always light and balmy. It is also a singular fact that the higher one goes up these volcanic hills, the. richer the soil becomes. The vintage would'have been very good this' sea son but for a passing hailstorm, whichr- did- considerable --damage--in some vineyards, while recent showery weather has retarded ripening. Some of the", table grapes growon in -the. neighbourhood are very "fine;' '' '
