NO AVIATION FOE FORBES. The public meeting called by the Mayor, which was to have been held on Tuesday evening, lapsed, only three aldermen, the Mayor, and town clerk, and a pressman turning up. The object of the meeting was to devise ways and means for raising the guarantee of £150 asked by Hart's Bi-planes, Limited, for a visit from the Australian aviator, W. E. Hart, and as Forb'es didn't attend, it may be assumed that it isn't prepared to raise £150 out of its collective pocket to see the airman's flight. Forbes thinks it can wait a little while till bi-planes are as common as motor cars in this district.

BUSHRANGING RELIC. Mr J.
