    Abstract

    In the first half of the century, the Central West farmers benefited from the close settlement policies and railway construction, which put them in contact with the Australian Worker's Union as well as the Labour Party. The farmer's support for Labor was strong in some electorates, even though this began to wane after rail construction peaked in 1913.
