10925 Warrnambool Standard Vic Tuesday 25th May 1915; WANGOOM.Monday. THE LATE MR. HUGH ADAMS.
Deep regret was felt throughout the district at the news of the sudden death of Mr. High Adams, of Warrnambool, and late of "The Oaks,"Laen. The deceased gentleman was for many years a resident of Wangoom, and was widely known and much respected throughout the district. The call came suddenly and without warning, but to one with a sterling character such as his it is just an elevation from our ranks to the unseen ranks of the spirits of "just men made "perfect.' He was for many years a member of the Presbyterian Church at Wangoom, and on Sunday morning last the Rev. A.S.Houston, during his service, made reference to the departed. In the course of his remarks he said:" I feel I cannot let this service go by without some direct reference to the passing away of one, who was so well known to us all, and who was connected for some time with our church at Wangoom. -The late.Mr.Hugh Adams was intimately related to some amongst us, and was joined to most, if not all. of us by close ties of friendship. He was an elder of the Presbyterian Church- one of those strong, wise, Godly elders, who are to be found right throughout our church. those men who are at once the creators and creations of Presbyterianism.They have made Presbyterianism what it is and have themselves been made what they are and have been by Christianity and Presbyterianism. We dowell to be proud of them, and to honortheir memory. I do not intend to speak here of Mr. Adams' life and honor and faith, of tile lovableness of his nature or of that delightful humor and cheerfulness and youthfulness that he maintained even to the end. There is no need. You all knew and appreciated him. I want just to say this; that I thank God for men like him: they are the salt of the earth: they honor Christianity; they are the pride of our church; they being dead, yet speak. Mourn not for him nor his passing. God was graciousto him in his life and its close. Weare all pilgrims, and he has arrivedwhither we are all journeying -"Home. " To be absent from the body is to be at home with the Lord.To depart to be with Christ is far better. Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord, from hence forth, yea.saith the spirit, that they may rest from their labors, for their works dofollow them. The service closed with the congregation singing the hymn, "For Ever With the Lord."
Warrnambool Standard Vic Friday 21st May 1915; SUDDEN DEATH. A painfully sudden death occurred at North Warrnambool yesterday evening when Mr. Hugh Adams dropped dead in the yard at his residence. Although he had reached the age of 69 years , he was of an active disposition, and had been out cycling in the afternoon. He walked up Liebig-street with his bicycle, and was just about to put the machine into the shed when he fell down and expired within a few minutes, the cause of death being heart failure.Mr Adams carried on farming 'for many years at 'The Oaks,' Laen, and on retiring from active work, he came to reside in Warrnambool where he had a large circle of friends and relatives, about the and of last year. One of his sons, the Rev. Hugh Adams of Sea Lake is well-known in Warrnambool, having spent some years here while studying for the ministry.

10931 Wednesday 14 February 1912; The Adelaide Register; MR. MILLER. M.P. (Burra Burra).
Mr. William Miller, M.P., one of the earliest settlers in the Petersburg district, was born in the Orkney Islands in 1850. and arrived with his parents two years later. He remained with his father until the opening up of the northern areas, when he proceeded to the Hundred of Belalie. Twelve months later he removed to Golden Gully. That was before Petersburg came into existence. He was a member chariman of the Yongala District Council for some years, was a prominent supporter of the local agricultural society, and took the initial step in connection with the establishment of the local Agricultural Bureau. He has represented Burra Burra since the enlargement of the electorate in 1902. Mr. Miller ia one of the leading authorities in Parliament on rural questions, and his knowledge has been very valuable lately in connection with the extension of land settlement. For many years he has been prominent in connection with the Farmers' Union.

Saturday 18 January 1913, an interview by Special Reporter for the Adelaide Advertiser;
Mr. W. Miller, M.P., is one of the kindliest men I know. He is a "good subject" for an interview. I rang him up by telephone. "Can I have an interview ?"' I asked. "If you like; come along." Mr. Miller was at Parliament House, and when I arrived I found him with company. "I don't want to interrupt" I began. "That's all right; we are only killing time," he responded in his quiet way. We walked into the Assembly Chamber, and Mr. Miller subsided into his customary place. For the time being I occupied Mr. Robert Homburg's seat. I cannot say I received inspiration from the columned hall. I chiefly was impressed by the fact that it made one uncomfortable trying to write upon the table provided for members while retaining one's seat upon the couch like bench. "Tell me what you want and I will endeavor to answer," said Mr. Miller. "I was born at Stronsay, Orkney Islands, in 1850, and was brought by my father (the late Peter Miller, of South Rhine) to South Australia in 1852. The family immediately upon landing at Port Adelaide proceeded to Mount Crawford, where my father be- came overseer for the late David Randell, who selected, planted, and erected the buildings upon what is now known as Coryton Park. Mr. Randell called it Glen Para, and Mr. Rounsevell subsequently named it Coryton. Five years after my father joined him Mr. Randell selected, a block of country in South Rhine. My father then became manager of that, and during the ensuing three years planted the garden which has since come to be known as Rogers' vineyard. It may be worthy of note that between 1852 and 1857, 100 cows were, milked at Coryton Park and 100 more at a station down the run now known as Murray Dawson's property. Apart from dairying on Mr. Randell's farms, a large amount of wheat, barley, and oats was grown. In those days they used to cut either with sickle, or scythe, the threshing being done by machinery. It was in 1856, I think, that the first stripper came into the district, and was purchased by Mr.Randell from a man named Marshall, of Adelaide. It worked as well as the stripper of today, but was much heavier to draw, requiring a team of eight bullocks. In 1860 my father started for himself at a place about three miles from Springton."There was no township then?" "No. He carried on farming and dairying there until July,1906, when he died at the age of 85. He was a breeder of first-class draught horses. His youngest sons, E., and D. Miller, are still on the homestead. In the years 1865-6 which are historical on account of the drought which occurred throughout most of the State, South Rhine and Mount Pleasant had heavy crops, though the lower and far northern district suffered complete failures. That information is, important because it shows the value of the South Rhine country, and is a strong argument the residents have been using for the last fifty years in favour of constructing a railway to the district. But they have not got one yet. The next season in South Rhine was very wet, and though the crops were heavy they were rotten with red rust and returned about 2 or 3 bushells to the acre of wheat that did not go more than 55 Hd to the bushel.'' They were dark days? "Indeed, they were. After two or three years take all made its appearance."Was that the first you knew of take all? "Yes; and it made the burden of the farmers heavier still. Many went to the northern areas." And left South Rhine deserted? "Oh, no; not by any means. Many had had holdings of only 80 acres, and some only 40, and the land went into larger holdings. Even today on the Matthews' estate there are 22 tenants on less than 5,000 acres. Most of the original tenants' families are still on the estate. Most of those who journeyed northward were very successful, and some of the best farmers in the north are those who went from the neighborhood of Gumeracha and South Rhine in the early days." When did you ask the paternal blessing and strike out for yourself? "I think about '79. I put in twelve months at Belalie, near Jamestown, and then purchased a selection on the eastern side of the hundred of Morgan, ten miles north of the site of Petersburg. But there was no Petersburg or railway then. I have seen the railway come and the town grow. I carted my wheat l8 miles to Yongala, or else 32 miles to Jamestown. I had great trouble with rabbits, which first overran that country when I started. During the second year I was there the hundred of Coglin was surveyed. For a few years the farmers did fairly well, buk on account of drought in 1892 and subsequently they had to abandon their holdings. Since 1902, however, the farmers have been doing fairly well there. I sold my property four years ago." You have had experience of the severe droughts? "Yes, I went right through all of them. For several years I did not reap more than I sowed." How do farmers manage to live through such times? "Aye, it is a mystery. It would not have been so bad if they had had only one or two bad years, and then got a crop, but there were five or six consecutive absolute failures in the nineties. That is the worst drought that I remember." Worse than the '60 drought? "Yes, because it was longer. Most farmers had for years after 1802 to cart hay and cocky chaff to keep their stock alive. The Government granted seed wheat, but it was of no value to the farmers, because in each of the three years when it was granted the crops failed. It would have been better, if the farmers had not seen the seed wheat-but that was not the fault of the Government." Only a farmer knows the full significance of the term drought? "That is so. Some had a little money, and with assistance from the bank and the tradespeople industrious men were able to carry on until the seasons changed, but they suffered great privations." When the turn came they made their
fortunes? ''Not so many as you seem to think" Some lost heart and dropped out? "Quite a number went from my district to the other States. Most of the young people made for Broken Hill and worked to keep their parents on the farms during the bad times." That was like the Britisher. One hears of courage and heroism in many walks of life, but in spite of it all I suppose some of the old people had to give up? Do you know of any relinquishing their holdings just before the drought ended? "One man, the son of an English farmer, started up there worth a considerable sum of money, and when he began he had some very good crops. The drought ruined him after many years struggling against odds, and now he is an old age pensioner. There are many cases as pitiful. People dropped put just as the rain came, and others stepped in and got the reward which should have attended the efforts of the ruined men." It is very hard. Men cannot say when a drought will end. "Farmers keep on incurring expense, because to leave off sowing would perhaps mean that they would miss the rain when it came. It would have been better in the nineties for five, or six years had there been no crops in at all. But one can never say when the turn is coming."
Perhaps some means of accurately forecasting droughts will be discovered before long. "In the last ten years the introduction of a better system of farming by the use of phosphates and drills has assisted agriculture very much." Would the new methods pull us through another big drought? "Phosphates cannot make wheat grow without rain. But the drill is a wonderful help, because it puts the seed in at a regular depth. I have found the drill successful, even without phosphates. We cannot overlook the fact that in districts which had rain during the period of drought elsewhere there were light crops until the drill and manure came along. Phosphates and the drill really made the country. Look what they have encouraged us to do in the mallee. I believe from what I have seen, as a member of the Eyre Peninsula and Murray Lands Railways Commission, that there is a prosperous future before the land that has been and is to be opened up on Eyre Peninsula and east of the Murray. In a few years we ought to more than double the return of wheat in the State." What effect do you think a drought would have in the mallee country? "Doubtless diminished rainfall would entail lighter crops. But, you see, Loxton has passed through a dry period, and yet the crops were fairly good." Do you think more of the loamy soil in the mallee country, then, than of the heavier soil in the north? "The red sandy loam will do better with a lighter rainfall than the strong, heavy land will.They have produced excellent crops at Loxton on10 in. of rain." You have no doubt at all concerning the wisdom of building the railways that Parliament has recently authorised? "I think it was the best policy ever adopted to open up the country before the settlers go on it, and also to provide water for them." You have as much confidence in these new wheat provinces as in the tried land of the north? "I have.The crops may not be always | as heavy, but the country is thoroughly reliable. When you consider that on Eyre Peninsula there are 11,000,000 acres of land suitable for agriculture within the rain fall limit, and compare that with the 2,1/2 millions under cultivation in the whole of the State today, you will see that South Australia is only in its infancy in regard to agriculture. On the eastern side of the Murray there are another four million acres. Probably we shall have bad seasons, as we have had them in the past, but I don't think we will suffer to the same extent as we have done previously. Our geographical position makes us always liable to droughts." And what about this season? "I believe the State will average 10 bushels." That will be better than last year? "Yes, there are districts where the crops are light, but there is not a great deal of wheat growing in those districts. They are fair to very heavy in other places." You expect a better return than was predicted in the Government forecast? "Yes, prospects have improved even since then."
