Additional Details:
Some Facts About Victoria (Aust.) (A Country which is progressive and prosperous, where Settlers are required and will be gladly welcomed.) The Government of Victoria owns and has control of all the railway systems and also the water supplies of the State, and has expended over $16,000,000 in Irrigation projects. The Climate of Victoria resembles that of California. It is one of the Richest Dairying countries in the world, and is fast becoming a great Fruit-producing State. Alfalfa will give six and sometimes more cuttings per annum. Hogs and Poultry thrive well, and are a source of great profit. Cereal growing has been one of the principal rural industries of the State for many years. The Government invites Settlers to come to Victoria, preference being given to those experienced in Irrigation and possessed of sufficient Capital to take up land, say $1,500. Intending Settlers may obtain Reduced Steamship Fares when traveling to Victoria, and special arrangements are also made for their conveyance on the State-owned Railways at Low Rates to and from the districts where land is available.
