BULLOO BITS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Charleville Times — 20 August 1898
BBLLOO BITS. XO THE EDITOR SIB,-Presuming, that the Bulloo cor. respondeat mil bow to the ruling of his chief in the leading article commenting on the Mitchell Rabbit Board, I feel that X must champion the member of the fourth estate as bis strictures on the doings of the Board are thoroughly justified. I thinfc yoa aro wrong in stating the cost of thn Board's supervision at £5 3a. per mile, for, although, the Mitchell Rabbit Beard paid £7,114, the other £1065 was another Board'3 share of the maintenance of the 1,175 miles of fence, and as the salaries of the Superintendent, Secretary, Chairman, free railway pass, offices, and incidentals were not included, I think £7 per mile would be much nearer the actual cost. It 13 universally conceded that the salaries all round aro too high, and this is apparent from the fact that the principal oScera of the Board, and several of the netting riders gave ap situations a3 over seers on sheep stations in order to join the Board.

The demand from all quarters has continued to be on the roost liberal scale, and apart from coarse crossbrcds a farther improve ment can be chronicled. In outlining the movement this week it must bo said that merino descriptions selling in May at 3d., now show an advance of jd. Below this point the hardening tendency Is much more attested in s rise of $d. on 8d. to 8td. wools, and *d to $d on the heavier descrip tions ranging last time from 6Jd to 7id per lb. Pieces, bellies, and locks, hava ac cordingly mended their position by a good Id per lb all round.
