     The bore put down in the Womarden Ward eight miles from Three Springs was a failure, delivering only salty water [5: 28-Feb-1936]

     The solicitors stated that he had "acted according to the Road Districts Act  1919-33 and in the best interests of the Board" [5]
     The ratepayers at the meeting supported him unanimously and found fault with the Members of the Board who had opposed him [5]
     After much discussion a motion was put forward by a local farmer that  all Members of the Board should resign immediately [5]
     He agreed with this motion, and that the ratepayers could then elect a new Board, or any of the old Members as they saw fit [5]
     Himself, Albert I. BROAD and Henry C. STACEY resigned, however the other members showed no signs of cooperation [5]
     As three of the Board's Members had resigned, there was insufficient Members and the Board was automatically defunct [5]
     At the end of the meeting a vote of thanks, which was "carried with acclamation" was bestowed on him for chairing the meeting [5]
After the Road Board became defunct a Government Commissioner was sent to run things until a new Board was elected [5: 10-Apr-1936]

From The Western Mail newspaper, Thursday 27 December 1928:
Country Towns and Districts - Three Springs - A Fertile Wheat District
"Fairfield, the property of Mr. W. Padbury, is a well equipped farm of 8,423 acres of good land to the east of the town. It is managed by Mr. E. Hunt. The crops are practically all wheat, the total being 2,600 acres. The 6,200 acres cleared include 1,350 done last year and now under crop. There is an additional area now fallowed. Next year the crops will cover 3,000 acres, including 300 acres of new land. Due to 500 acres of Federation wheat having been affected with rust, the last harvest yielded only six bags to the acre, but the return this year promises to reach seven bags. The misfortunate with Federation has induced Mr. Hunt to confine himself this season to Nabawa, Merredin and premium wheats. One paddock of Merredin is giving nine bags. Another patch of 67 acres under Carrabin, a premium wheat, is producing between eight and nine bags. An interesting unit in the [farm's] plant is an auto-header, which gives very satisfactory results. Though the farm does not carry a stud, it supports a fine collection of stock, comprising 2,000 sheep and 60 head of cattle."


From The Western Mail newspaper, Thursday 26 December 1929:
Country Towns and Districts - Three Springs and Mingenew - Cereal and Pastoral Wealth - People and Properties
"The chairman of the Three Springs Road Board is Mr. E. Hunt, who is indefatigable in his efforts to promote the interests of the township and district. He is chairman of the football and cricket clubs, and an enthusiastic supporter of other public bodies. Mr. W. Padbury's well-known property, Fairfield, which consists of 8,500 acres, is managed by Mr. Hunt, who has had extensive agricultural experience in England. He arrived in Western Australia in 1912, and in 1919 he took control of Mr. Padbury's Rose Hill Friealan Stud, at Guildford, until 1922, when he went to Wannamal to engage in share farming with Mr. Padbury. While there he also managed the Ayrshire Stud. Mr. Hunt came to Three Springs in 1923. This year 2,800 acres were cropped on Fairfield, and a five bag average is expected. Next year 3,120 acres will be seeded. In 1926 an auto-header was purchased, and it has given satisfactory results, harvesting up to 40 acres daily. Mr. Hunt is very popular throughout the district, and his many public services are deeply appreciated. He is the most unassuming of men."


From The Western Mail newspaper, Thursday 5 October 1933:
Country Towns and Districts - Three Springs and Carnamah - Rich Pastoral and Wheat Lands - A Progressive Community
"Mr Edward Hunt, the popular chairman of the Three Springs district road board since its inception in 1929, when it was alienated from the Carnamah and Mingenew road board districts, is a native of Lancashire, where he was born in 1878. As a lad on his father's farm he acquired considerable knowledge of the industry, particularly in that section relating to stud stock, so that when he decided to migrate to Western Australia, he was comparatively well equipped with the knowledge essential to success on the land. Arriving in W.A. in 1911, he set out to gain local farming experience in various agricultural districts until 1918, when he engaged with Mr William Padbury as stud master at Rosehill stud farm, Guildford. Since then, Mr Hunt has been actively engaged in the preparation of stud stock horses, cattle and sheep on behalf of Mr William Padbury, and has had outstanding success at the Perth, Melbourne and Sydney Royal Shows. At present, Mr Hunt is manager of Mr William Padbury's Fairfield property of 8,500 acres at Three Springs. In addition to his road board activities, Mr Hunt takes a very keen interest in the sport of the district, and holds executive positions with many of the clubs in the district. He is also a past president of the Three Springs Agricultural Show."
