SETTLING RETURNED SOLDIERS DEPARTMENT'S POLICY CONDEMNED. BY TURON SHIRE COUNCILLORS. OBJECTION TO STARVATION HOLDINGS. (Article), The Bathurst Times (NSW : 1909 - 1925), Wednesday 9 January 1918 page 1 2020-02-07 11:53 Cr. Hodgo said ho could boar out

that tho land in question wus Long
more 's, nnd it wns only r. permissive
occupancy. Ho had taken a portion of
tho uroa hinisolf. This land was re
ported on by (ho Govornmont officers
us being ttiitablo for roturnod soldi
ers. He thought tho Council should
ask tliQ Dopartmont if that land has
boon roportod on nnd, if. so why wore
not Crs. Godfrey uud Williams con
sulted in tlio mattor. Ho moved u mo
tion to tlmE oDVjct.
THE, YETHOLME LAND.
Cr. Gurrurd eaid thut with rogurd to
(ho Yk'tholine hind, it was very grati
fying to know tho Dopartmont hail in
timatod that tho uoldiors wore not ex
pected lo make ti living out of it. But
why put men 011 a block of forty ncrus
whoro there wns no labor. Ho admit
ted tho ground would grow potatoes
and fruit to n certnin extent, but not
sufficient for commercial purposes. Ho
understood those returned soldiers hud
applied for thoso lands. With regard
to the rainfall, his record for tho putt
six years showed un r.veruge annual
full of 10J inches, two-third', of which
fell in tho winter, when no bonoflt was
derived from it. The nuVurc of tlio
; country wns dry, white, hard, granito,
timbered with peppermint. He wns
vory ploasod to seo tlio Departmont ox
poctod tho returned soHiors lo keop
tho land, not tlio laud lo keep the sol
diors.
I Cr. Hodgo: Tlio nion who liavo ap
plied for the hind may hnvo friends
there, and all they want muy bo a piece
I of ground on which lo build a homo for
thcmsolvos.
! Cr. Bullock: Tho Government uslicd
1 (lie Council lo givo its assistance. The
1 question is, do they want tlio assist
I nncc of tho Council or do they not?
A SHAJIK AND A CRIME.
Cr. Williams: I think it is a shnmo
nnd a crimo tlio way th'cy aro treating
(ho returned soldiers. I think they
sliould get tho best hind that wo liavo.
Cr. Hodgo 's motion was carried, and
tho clerk was givon instructions ac
cordingly.
Cr. Hodge said he could bear out
extent. He was in the Lands
Department recently, and ascertained
that the land in question was Longmore's,
and it was only a permissive
occupancy. He had taken a portion of
the area himself. This land was
reported on by the Government officers
as being suitable for returned soldiers.
He thought the Council should
ask the Department if that land has
been reported on and, if so why were
not Crs. Godfrey and Williams
consulted in the matter. He moved a
motion to that effect.
THE YETHOLME LAND.
Cr. Garrard said that with regard to
the Yetholme land, it was very gratifying
to know the Department had
intimated that the soldiers were not
expected to make a living out of it. But
why put men on a block of forty acreas
where there was no labor. He admitted
the ground would grow potatoes
and fruit to a certain extent, but not
sufficient for commercial purposes. He
understood those returned soldiers had
applied for those lands. With regard
to the rainfall, his record for the past
six years showed an average annual
fall of 19 1/2 inches, two-thirds, of which
fell in the winter, when no benefit was
derived from it. The nature of the
country was dry, white, hard, granite,
timbered with peppermint. He was
very pleased to see the Department
expected the returned soldiers to keep
the land, not the land lo keep the
soldiers.
Cr. Hodge: The men who have applied
for the land may have friends
there, and all they want may be a piece
of ground on which to build a home for
themselves.
Cr. Bullock: The Government asked
the Council to give its assistance. The
question is, do they want the assistaance
of the Council or do they not?
A SHAME AND A CRIME.
Cr. Williams: I think it is a shame
and a crime the way they are treating
the returned soldiers. I think they
should get the best land that we have.
Cr. Hodge 's motion was carried, and
the clerk was given instructions
accordingly.

Cr. Bullock said he know of a lot |
of land that was being reported on nt
the presont limo, which wus absolutely
unsuitable for settling returned sol- 1
dicrs on. Out; of the four or fivo thou- 1
sand acres that wcri) being reported on I
not one in ovorv thousand ncros could ;
be cultivated. And that wus (ho sort,
of laud tho Department wns reporting
on for retlnrned soldiers. Tho Govern- 1
mont officials liud boon sent all over j
tho Turon river near Hill End to re- '
port, and lie thought it wus nothing
short of a crimo to put returned sol
diers on land of that kind.. Further,
the Government uskod ussistanco from
tho Sliiro Council, but he contended it 1
wus ignloring tlio Coiiiicil by -not scok
ing information from (ho two Council
lors appointed to supply that informa
tion.
At the December meeting of the
Turon Shire Council a discussion took
place with regard to the unsuitability
of certain areas of land at Yetholme
for living areas, and Councillor Garrard
waxed rather warm on the
subject.
Following on that discussion the
Shire Council received a communication
from the Minister for Lands (Mr.
W. G. Ashford), and this was read at
yesterday's meeting of the Council, as
follows: Referring to the recent
discussion at the meeting of the Turon
Shire Council, regarding certain land
allotted to returned soldiers near
Yetholme, I enclose herewith particulars
of the blocks in question, as furnished
to me by the surveyor general. The
policy of the Government in regard to
soldiers' settlement applies not to
living areas, but are only for residential
purposes, in order to give returned
soldiers the opportunity they ask for,
namely, of acquiring a site for a home,
while following some other occupation.
It is in all such cases specially pointed
out that these blocks do not constitute
living areas, and they are consequently
not subject to the usual
advance of money for improvements, etc.
The land referred to is portions 224
and 225, parish of Yetholme, county
Roxburgh. A. G. Anderson, a returned
soldier, who also has three sons at
the front, desired to obtain one of
them.
The land is a quarter of a mile from
Yetholme Post Office, and reported to
be gently undulating land, grey, sandy
soil of granite formation, timbered
with fairly open gum and peppermint,
with light scrub. No permanent
water; whole area is arable and suitable
for fruit and potatoes. Rainfall about
available in two blocks for returned
12, 1917, with a footnote that the

ACCEPTANCE OF COUNCIL'S
In reply to a letter from the Council
the officer-in-charge of the returned
soldiers' settlement branch of the
Department of Lands wrote stating that
the Department would be most pleased
to avail itself of the services of the
shire president (Mr. John Godfrey)
were nominated by the Council to act
IGNORING COUNCIL'S
REPRESENTATIVES.
Cr. Bullock said he knew of a lot
of land that was being reported on at
the present time, which was absolutely
unsuitable for settling returned soldiers
on. Out of the four or five thousand
acres that were being reported on
not one in every thousand acres could
be cultivated. And that was the sort
of land the Department was reporting
on for returned soldiers. The Government
officials had been sent all over
the Turon river near Hill End to
report, and he thought it was nothing
short of a crime to put returned
soldiers on land of that kind. Further,
the Government asked assistance from
the Shire Council, but he contended it
was ignoring the Council by not seeking
information from the two Councillors
appointed to supply that
information.

DEPARTMENT'S POLICY

HOLDINGS.
The mode of settling returned soldiers
on the land, adopted by the
Department, is one which is roundly
condemned by those people who may
rightly be termed authorities on the
question in their respective districts.
The Department does not seem to have
any conception of the quality of land,
nor what is required in order that a
person may make a living on the land.
So long as a certain area is allocated
for each soldier, the Department seems
to think the soldier is well provided
for. It does not seem to matter whether
the country is all rock or clay — it
is all the same to the Department. An
advisory board reports throughout the
State on which it considers suitable
land on which to settle returned
soldiers, but the members of that board
appear to have as much idea of the
quality of land, and what it will produce,
as the man in the moon. Some
time ago shire and municipal councils
were communicated with and requested
to appoint suitable persons in their
respective localities, with a view to
assisting the Advisory Board of the
Department in selecting suitable land for
the settling of returned soldiers. The
councils carried out the wishes of the
Department in this respect, and in
most cases appointed two members of
the Council to supply the required
information. In the case of Turon Shire
Council, two gentlemen well versed in
land matters in the Bathurst district,
viz., Councillors John Godfrey and
Samuel Williams were appointed. But
these gentlemen have not in any way
been approached for advice on the
suitability or otherwise of land for soldiers
settlement within the shire.
