3949 Applications for Farm.

Narandera, Tuesday. - Considerable interest has been taken in the making available for selection as a homestead farm the area formerly used by the Aborigines' Protection Board as the Warangesda Mission. The farm contains 1,612 acres, is situated 10 miles from Wilbriggie railway station, and1½ miles from Darlington Point township, and is improved to the value of £915. The area has attracted applications from all parts of New South Wales and many parts of Victoria. It is thought that the number of applications received, 3,940, is a record for the State. A ballot willbe taken by Narandera Land Board next week.

Senator Pearce - If the honorable senator thinks that all those applicants are landless he is greatly mistaken. Seventy-five per cent. of them already have farms.

Senator Sir William Glasgow - Ninety-five per cent. of them were bogus applications.
