The Forbes Times. WEDNESDAY, MARCH 20th, 1912. FROM BOURKE TO QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 20 March 1912

The Forbes Times. WEDNESDAY, MARCH 20th, 1912. VJIOM BOUKKK TO QUEENSLAND. | ) in his reply to the deputation Which waited on him last week, tlie Minister for Works, Mr. Atrhur Grif fith, was not one whit more favor able and emphatic than were warran ted by the arguments submitted to him urging the advisability of -the early establishment or railway com munication between western New South Wales and the Northern Ter ritory. Unhappily, the prospects of a similarly favorable reception of the proposition at the hands of the Federal adminisration, which is more immediately- concerned as the responsible body for the Northern Territory, are seriously hampered by the committal to South Australia that connection to Port Darwin shall be gained by extending the main line of that State due north fro;: Oodnadatta. The general 'concensus ol' opinion appears to be, however, that it will be a long time before that extension materialises, because ol the quite palpable fact that, the route over the ...

When is Water Filthy? CURIOUS CASE AT CONDOBOLIN. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 20 March 1912

When is Water Filthy ? CURIOUS CASE AT CONDOBOLIN. A case of great interest and importance was heard before the police magistrate, Mr. Jamieson, at the Condobolin police court, on Thursday and Friday last. The Commercial Bank manager, Mr. P. S. Bowman, was proceeded against by the municipal council for permitting filthy water to flow from the bank premises through a drainpipe into the storm-water channel of Bathurst-street. Evidence for the prosecution was given by the council's sanitary inspector, Mr. P. V. Wood, to the effect that he found water entering the said channel. The liquid was as clear as crystal in appear • ance, but on taking up a handful he found ' it had an offensive smell. Evidence.for the defence showed that in September, 1908, the council gave the bank permission to erect a septic tank, and 12 months afterwards gave notice to dis continue using it within 14 days. But after receiving a letter from the bank manager, stating that only kitchen., bath, and washing wate...

The Police Magistrate's Absence. NOT FAIR TO THE PUBLIC. At the Police Court yesterday, Mr. Hassall, C..P.S, drew attention to the fact of honorary magistrates being asked to adjudicate on lengthy cases. They had their work to attend to, and that must be considered. Mr. Jamieson, the P.M,was at present away on holidays and Mr. IS. Marriott had to attend to • Orange as well as Forbes. He would do his best to have a regular day appointed for a court sitting so that the public would not be inconveni enced every time the P.M. took his annuaj leave. Mr. Reymond concurred with Mr. Has sails remarks, and said the present arrange ments were most unsatisfactory and they should be attended to by the department at once. Forbes was an important centre and it was not fair to the public who had business at the court to be treated in the way they were.
