The Forbes Advocate, TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 1912. HOME RULE. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 13 February 1912
®Ijc ^b&ocate, TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 1912. HOME RULE. Mr Winston Churchill's visit to Belfast last week was a history-making one. The distinguished, young statesman went right into the heart of the hostile camp to preach the doctrine of peace, forbearance, and a better understanding. Not since Mr Gladstone's great Midlothian campaign has there been a development in British domestic affairs of as great,a significance as Mr Churchill's Belfast speech. It was a 'dauntless undertaking on the part of a very able and very courageous man, and must for ever remain a milestone in the history of the Irish movement. Every Australian ■ who appreciates free Australian conditions will admit that Ireland has been a misgoverned and misunderstood people. Mr Churchili went to Belfast to unfold a scheme whereby it is hoped to wipe out the past and its bitter recollections; and to do so lie. -went among the Ulstermen, whose hostility to Home Rule is now its only serious obstacle. It was his mis...

SUPERINTENDENT KENNY'S HOAX. THE GUILELESS YOUNGSTER. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 13 February 1912
SUPERINTENDENT KENNY'S HOAX. THE GUILELESS YOUNGSTER. Forbes folk will read with amusement the following incident related of Superintendent Kenny, who was stationed in Forbes for some years, and who, after transfer to Lismore, was instrumental in drumming some burglarious police out of the force there into the seclusion of a gaol, and received rapid promotion to the successive ranks of Inspector and Su-' j perintendent. . The incident is related in the Broken Hill paper "Truth," and is characteristic of Superintendent Kenny: An incident illustrating the characteristic stupidity of the average police constable occurred during Superintendent Kenny's journey from Deniliquin to Broken Hill. Knowing that there was a. wait of several hours in Adelaide between the arrival of the Melbourne express and the departure of the Broken Hill "slow coach," Mr Kenny, who is in charge of the Western Police District, asked a fellow passenger where was a good place to spend the few hours. Was advised, "...
THE FREEZING WORKS. THOSE LONDON RESULTS. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 13 February 1912
THE FREEZING WORKS. I THOSE LONDON RESULTS. In a recent issue we gave the detailed results of tlie competition for a prize offered at the last Forbes show by the Freezing Works on the following conditions:—Best pen of crossbred suclcer lambs, most suitable for export, to be killed, frozen, shipped, and sent to the London market, skins and tallow sold in Sydney, and the net results to go to the owners. The results, which were then only just to hand, brought out Mr .T. D. Low, of West Plains, as the winner,, with 14/6J per carcase. It seems, however, that a misapprehension has arisen from the way the figures were put forward, arid, the object of this paragraph, is , to correct it. The competition was proriioted by the company, which naturally enough paid the expenses of it. Thus, the company's standard charge of 2/- per lamb was not made, neither did the company appropriate the tallow (about 1/- per head), as is the case in ordinary working. Consequently, it will be seen that on ordin...
