EIGHT HOUR ART UNION. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 6 March 1912
MIGHT HOIK AKT UXJOX. The twelve months' trip round the world and *100 in cash, or a first prize valued at £500, offered by the Eight Hours Committee of Melbourne in their forth coming 56th annual art union is one which excites widespread interest, and usually enlists a very general support. The com mittee, in consequence, again announce that valuable prize as the first, and offer in addition 99 others, ranging in value from £100. The support accorded the undertaking last year was so generous that the committee was enabled to donate a very substantial sum to the hospitals and public charities, to which the proceeds are devoted. This fact probably induces many people to try their luck who other wise might have some objection to doing so. The tickets are only one shilling each, or 22 for £t. Residents should pur chase direct from the local agent (Mr, G. F. Cochrane) or they may send to the representative, Mr. Theo. W. Heide, 231 Flinders-lane, Melbourne, who has acted in that capacity...

The Markets SYDNEY WOOL MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 6 March 1912
The Markets SYDNEY WOOL MARKET. Dalgcty and Company, Limited, report under date of 1st instant that transactions in the local wool market during the past week have been principally confined to the sale of withdrawn wools out of re cent catalogues, which have been moving off slowly at prices on the basis of recent auction rates. As mentioned in last repoi t, the quantity of uusold wool remaining in the Sydney stores is within a very moder ate compass, and with any sligkt improve ment in the market a clearance of the wools on hand would be speedily made. It has been a little disappointing that, with the almost certain prospect of an Australian clip not much more than equal in volurue to the one in the preceding season, there has been an almost entire absence of any upward tendency in values towards the end of the season such as could reasonably have been expected, more especially in view of the fact that the Continental sec tion has taken the great bulk of the wool, leaving Yorkshire ...
