INVERELL. Re-Forming the Branch. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 11 April 1906
INVERELL. Re-Formfng the Branoh. On March 26th, Mr. J. Perry, M.L.A., President of the Association, addressed a public meeting here in the interests of the Association and of the farming class generally. At the close of his address, it was re solved to re-form the Inverell Branch, and Mr. R. Hughes was appointed secre tary, pro tem, with power to convene a mfifttinir at an parlv flntp fnr thp piprtirm of officers, many of those present en rolling themselves as members. Amongst other things' in his address, Mr. Perry said there were 170 branches of the Association throughout the State, and it behoved them to combine and see to it that their rights were attended to. There were 73,000 farmers settled on the land, and from what he could see it was useless for them to ask for anything unless they presented a solid front. In New Zealand there were 50,000 farm ers, 20,000 of whom were members of the Farmers' and Settlers' Association. There they had. practical men 'in Parlia ment, and that...
SOUTHERN RICHMOND. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 11 April 1906
SOUTHERN RICHMOND. At last meeting the following resolu tions were passed for submission to next Conference : — 1. 'That all drovers travelling with stock from one district to another shall be compelled to report. at all sheep stations en route.' 2. 'That all timber on conditional leases shall be the property of the selec tor, exactly the same ?.« — conditional purchases'.' I would like to point out that in the former case a drover might start a mob of cattle, say in the Grafton district, without the police there knowing any thing about it, and travel right through the Richmond district into Queensland without the police in Casino district see ing him or the cattle ; consequently, there is no check upon them under present rules. With regard to the timber on c.l.'s, under the present law selectors, can de stroy all timber but cannot sell 'a stick — strictly speaking, I believe, they cannot even take off a sheet of bark for their own use. The consequence is that millions of feet of va...

BAAN BAA. Increased Vitality—General District News [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 11 April 1906
BAAN BAA. Increased Vitality— General District News The annual meeting is set down for Sat urday, April 7th, and there is every pro mise of it being a most successful and well-attended one. I am happy to say our members are tak ing a very lively interest in the work, and it is needless to say our little Association is doing a great deal of good for the dis trict. Ploughing operations have commenced, and for this work a (rood fall of rain would be most acceptable. Unless rain soon falls, things will be getting rather serious in parts of this district — more so as the winter is fast approaching. The dairying industry is getting a great hold here, and despite the past unfavor able summer a large quantity of cream has been despatched to the Singleton, Aberdeen, and Duckenfield Butter Fac tories. A co-operative butter factory is being started in Narrabri, and everything is ready now to start the building, al though the site question has not been finally decided upon, awaiting the analy s...

Hannan were appointed delegates to represent the Junee Branch at the Electorate Confer-' Mr. Wels'mith's motion,— 'That the P.P. Boards, be abolished, and their du ties be transferred to the Shire Councils,' evoked a good deal of discussion. The resolution was eventually carried, and the secretary was asked to forward it on to the Executive Council to be placed on the business paper of the General Confer ence. The motion by Mr. D. Campbell,— 'That the Land Appeal Court be abol ished and the decision of the Land Board be final,' was withdrawn. Mr. W. L.

THE 'INHARMONIOUS TRIO.' FINDING OF THE COMMISSION. The folllowing are the conclusions ar rived at by the three Commissioners — Judge Rogers (President), Mr. George A. Wilson, and Colonel Burns — as the re sult of their investigation into the rela tions existing between the Railway Com missioners of New South Wales. Their report, which runs into twelve pages of printed matter, was issued on Friday : — 1. That inharmonious relations have ex isted between the Railway Commission ers iium a very eany period or tneir official association. 2. That the origination of these relations is to be attributed to the attitude of the Chief Commissioner towards his col leagues, especially towards one of them. 3. That their continuance is1 mainly (the President thinks entirely) due 'to the same cause. 4. That their relations have had injurious effects (1) On the railway service, as tending to the establishment of par tizanship on the part of the officers and men ; and therefore leading to the des tru...

A MEETING PLACE. AT THE SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 11 April 1906
A MEETING PLACE. AT THE SHOW. The New South Wales Chamber of Ag riculture have secured a space in the new A.N.A. pavilion on the Show-ground, for an office and cloak-room. The Secretary, Mr. H. J. Ruinsey, and other members will be in attendance to give information and distribute literature. Members may have letters and telegrams addressed there, and use the place as a rendezvous for themselves and friends. No charge will be made for minding parcels, cloaks, etc., and it is hoped that our country friends, whether members of the Chamber or not, will make use of it. The position is a good one, next to the Intelligence Bureau, at the end of the new pavilion, and quite close to the door leading into the agricultural exhibits. ^ mt o ^ ^ ^ ? jfc
JUDGING AT SHOWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 11 April 1906
JUDGING AT SHOWS. The spirited writer of the 'On the Land' column in the 'Sydney Morning Herald' has enthusiastically advocated, the single judge system at agricultural s'hows. In doing so, he backs up the view taken by the Pastoral and Agricul tural Societies' Union. This body, after going fully into the matter, gave its ap proval to the system, and with the object of promoting it has had a fairly extensive register of judges of recognised compet ency in different lines compiled for the use of Agricultural Societies. The Sec retary of the Union is Mr. T. I. Campbell,, of Vickery's Chambers, 84 Pitt Street. The view of the Union is that 'competent judges will secure public confidence ; ex hibitors and competitors will exhibit and1 compete with the knowledge that prizes will be awarded according to merit, and' Societies will be satisfied that the ultimate aims of their labors are being attained. One expert and competent judge is pre ferable to a board of judges whereby a. majority of...
OLLA PODRIDA. (Political and Otherwise.) THE REAL SPIDER. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 11 April 1906
OLLA PODRIDA. (Political and Otherwise.) By Cypher. THE REAL SPIDER. The 'Worker' — the 'official organ of the trades unions and labor leagues — re- gards Mr. G. II. Reid's invitation to the protectionists to assist him in combating the crazy notions of the Trades Hall dele gates in the Federal Parliament, as the invitation of the spider to the fly ; and inferenlially cautious protectionists against being seduced by the arguments of the spider. The 'Worker's' attitude is Laughably transparent. That it has the auuacny iu Lwiumuiii un uiu niiiuci 111 such a way is evidence of its sublime de gree of confidence in the credulity of the average elector. However, since the Victorian protec tionists have virtually agreed to an alli ance with the Socialists, on the basis of compromise, in return for the assistance of the latter in securing a still higher tariff, the confidence of the Labor organ is not misplaced. After the 'volte face' of the anti-socialist Melbourne Chamber of Commerce, any...
POULTRY FOR PROFIT THE ECC-LAYING COMPETITIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 11 April 1906
POULTRY FOR PROFIT THE EGG-LAYING COMPETITIONS. Saturday, 31st ult., witnessed the con clusion of the egg-laying competition at the Hawkesbury Agricultural College. The highest total for the twelve months was that put up by the White Leghorns of a ^country entrant, Mr. L. S. Luck, Moruya, whose pen was responsible for 141 1 eggs. * * * The record for the previous competition was 130S. The second place in the com petition just finished was filled by Mr. G. Howell's S. Wyandottes, who maintained their reputation by putting up the excel note that an Australian breed, although not actual winners, stand very .high on the list. These are Imperials, a fowl bred by an enterprising suburban poultry man, Mr. W. E. Boutche'r, of Canterbury, their tally being 1251, which entitles them to third place. As the College received more applications for pens than could be entertained, Mr. J. Mclntosh conducted what might be called an overflow competi tion at Rockdale, where so pens, each containing six...
FERTILISER FACTS. ARTIFICIAL MANURES. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 11 April 1906
FERTILISER FACTS. ARTIFICIAL MANURES. A couple of very useful brochures hayq been issued from the agricultural offices of the Potash Syndicate (7 and 9 Bridge street, Sydney), dealing with artificial manures in their relation to agriculture generally and to citrus fruit trees. The first booklet has a recommendatory introduc tion by Mr. W. S. Campbell, Director of : Agriculture, and contains a fund of in formation for farmers, dairymen, orch ardists, and others who desire to increase the m-oductiveness of their lands. The needs of the different soils 'and the best sort of fertilisers to use to supply those needs are indicated, and the information is. conveyed in language which the ordin ary layman can :easily understand. The same remarks apply to the booklet on citrus fruit trees, which has the additional advantage of being nicely illustrated. Copies.of these brochures may be had for the asking.
THE GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 11 April 1906
THE GARDEN. Our remarks under this heading have hitherto been confined to flowers. We have dealt with 'the sentimental helio trope, rather than with the practical cab bage'— in other words, the ornamental rather than the edible has received atten tion. He is a good gardener who can find room for both — that which will cheer and decorate the home as well as thai which can gladden and satisfy the inner man. We propose, therefore, to touch upon — Creen Peas. The cultivation of this favorite vege table has of late received a remarkable stimulus. Belonging to the leguminous order of plants, which, unlike the bras sica, or cabbage tribe, do not require a rich soil to bring them to perfection, it is not surprising that a product which is always in demand at a paying price, and the cultivation of which is in a large measure free from the drawbacks atten dant upon many others, should receive increased attention as its merits become more widely known. * * '* A remarkable fact in connection wi...
