RIFLE SHOOTING. BUMBURY BEATS FORBES. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 30 January 1912
RIFLE SHOOTING. I BUMBURY BEATS FORBES. A team of eight men from the Bumbury Rifle Club visited Forbes on Friday, and gave our men a sound drubbing. The conditions were 7 shots each at-300, 500, and 600 yards ranges. Though the light was not too good, and the wind at times variable, that affords no explanation of the extraordinary collapse of some of our crack shots at the 300 yards range. The team averaged 27.47 per man at 300 yards, 31.75 at 500 yards, and 27.62 at 600 yards, and was beaten by 43 points. The visitors averaged 28.75 per man at 300 yards, 31.87 at 500 yards, and 29.5 at 600 yards. The nearest approaches to possibles were by Captain J. H. Bates and W. Shirvington, of Forbes, and R. A. Douglas, of Bumbury. Luncheon was served on the range for the two teams. It was originally intended to shoot ten men aside, but Bumbury only mustered eight. Following are the scores:— BUMBURY RIFLE CLUB. H. Moseley .... G. Casey ..... R. A. Douglas . . W. A. Day .... W. Moseley .... E. ...

The Forbes Advocate, TUESDAY, JANUARY 30, 1912. A UNIFORM GAUGE. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 30 January 1912
SU&ocate, vi - \Z/ TUESDAY, JANUARY 30, 1912. A UNIFORM GAUGE The question of a unifo'i.'n railway gauge througljaiit Australia was, naturally jatffigh. one of those that nggfl^lppne attention of the recent ^SBK^neSice of State Premiers, but it cannot be said that anything in the nature of a conclusive decision was arrived at. The story of the, divergence of Australian gauges is an old, and, in many respects, an interesting one,, but we do not-propose to go into it just now. The position is that each State has a gauge of its own, and the consequent inconvenience and danger to Australia are two of the big problems just now hitting this country in the face. The inconvenience is apparent to anyone, and the loss comes home with special force to the interstate trader. The danger involved is a big national question, and the^ sooner the people of Australia open their eyes thoroughly to it, the better for all concerned. Lord Kitchener was particularly straight on the subject in his ...

FOOTBALL. AN AUSTRALIAN RULES ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 30 January 1912
FOOTBALL. AN AUSTRALIAN RULES ASSOCIATION. Our travelling correspondent writes: — Whilst out in tlie Gunning district recently I was discussing sport generally with some of the local boys, and someone mentioned football. I think it -was Paddy Broderick who first brought the matter up, and at once all the boys were attention. Of course it was the Australian rules game that was discussed, and I was informed that last season a couple of games were played between teams representing Gunning and Forbes, and also that the Paddington team had visited Forbes to give a helping hand to the Australian game. Now, in the coming season, an effort is to be made to organise an Australian Rules Football Association in this district, and it behoves every lover of the game to give the organi\x=req-\ sation every support. The Gunning boys are quite satis\x=req-\ fled that they can muster a very fair team around Bedgerabong, Gunning, and Bogan Gate, and with the necessary energy instilled surely Forbes c...

CADETS' MATCH. Forbes v. Parkes. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 30 January 1912
CADETS' MATCH. Forbes v. Parkes. Anniversary Day saw one of the finest and most evenly contested matches played in Forheiy|«|«a9 very ^considerable time, j^^^^p^ginning WTnis'seasoii, a cSaeTOiuo was formed in each of the three towns, Molong, Parkes, and Forbes, and as Molong was too far distant, Parkes and Forbes agreed to try conclusions in a series of four matches for the premiership of the extreme western district. The four matches have now been played, and thrice has Forbes been victorious over a doughty team of opponents, who never acknowledged' defeat until stumps were drawn with the scores against them. The final match, owing to the cricket ground being engaged, was played on Poverty Square, which was marked out and arranged for the occasion. The Forbes boys won the toss, and decided to bat, and so certain were they of victory, that all through the first innings they treated the bowling of the visitors amusingly, with the result that in an amazingly short time six wickts fel...
FORBES v. SOUTH FORBES. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 30 January 1912
FORBES v. SOUTH FORBES. South. Forbes is tlie dominant club in the Association competitions, with Gunning next in the field of three, and Forbes a bad last. The third round of the competition was completed on Saturday, when the two town clubs played a draw. The game was a remarkable one, on account of the way the bowling was collared. South Forbes batted first, and Boulton, who went in first with Roy Emmett, came out of his shell, playing a fine free innings for 112, including nine fours. Roy Emmett, the consistent, notched 29 before being caught and bowled by V. Elliott. J. S. Shiels, who followed, hit freely, and though he had some luck, knocked up 152 before he was given out lbw to V. Elliott. Included in his score were twelve fours. H. Ellis, fourth man in, was 20 not out, and the innings was declared closed with no less than 35 sundries, at 348. No less -than eight bowlers of the Forbes team were tried. It looked any odds on South Forbes, but it was evidently a batsmen's day. T...
