, State Politics. ADJUKKSS BY MR. O. GILBERT Tlie local Liberal Association liad arranged for Mr. Henley, member lor Burwood, to address tlie elect ors on State politics on Monday night from the balcony of the Aus tralia Hotel. But iMr. Henley was not able to keep his appointment, and Air. O. Gilbert, who contested the Mudgee seat against Mr. Dunn at the by-election last year, and who is at present engaged in organ ising work for the party, spoke in his stead. iMr. R. Officer occupied the chair, and there were about 200 electors present, lined up across Lac.hlan-street. Mr. Gilbert was frequently inter rupted throughout his address, and at times his voice was hardly audible. He prefaced his remarks by saying that it was not the first time he had had. occasion to ad dress the people of Forbes. He had always received a good hearing, and hoped to secure the same on that occasion. It was only right for the public to hear both sides of any question, and they could then de cide lioxv to v...
EUGOWRA WATER SUPPLY. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 20 March 1912
EUUOWRA "XVATBIt SUPPTjY. The Boree Shire engineer reported to the last meeting of his Council that the site suggested at Narara Gully for a water supply for Eugowra is excellent in every way. There is a faultless foundation of granite at the dam site. A 20 feet con crete dam would give a storage capacity of over one million gallons, which could be increased, when desired, by construct ing other dams up the gully. The main would be 135 chains long, with a fall of 28ft. from the bottom of reserve. Esti mated cost, including a six inch wooden main and two stand pipes, £2,500. The reservoir would be just beyond the shire boundary, but landowners are agreeable to the necessary resumption of a few acres for reserve.
THE HIGH SCHOOL PROPOSAL [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 20 March 1912
THE HIGH SCHOOL PROPOSAL The leading article in last issue in sup port of the proposal for the establishment of a High School in Forbes read rather confusedly in part through several lines of type being placed wrongly. In urging the claims of Forbes to consideration, we de nied the ability of the High School already established at Orange to serve the whole of the western district, and the succeeding sentences should have read thus "It will, indeed, be sufficient tax on its cap acity if it meets the demands of the country lying to the east of that town. It is true that a claim has been put for ward on behalf of Dubbo ; and if the petition is granted the requirements of places along the main western line beyond Orange will be met. But this cannot affect the local right to consideration " etc.

Til 15 MARKETS. The wheat market was depressed to-day, and the price quoted was :ts Sd to 3s ltd; wheaten chaff brought from 3s 3d to 5s 8d, and oaten 3s 5d to 5s 5d.

Judge Kosalsky received a parcel through the post in New York, and opening it found an infernal mach ine. A small particle of dust had clogged the works and prevented an explosion, which would have meant certain death for the judge. Later, while the police, were examining the bomb, it. exploded, and the officer was severely wounded.

MR. GILBERT'S MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 20 March 1912
MIt. GILUEllT'S MJEEIIXG. The order of the' political meeting in Lachlan street on Monday night was more than pardonably interfered with by the continued unruly interjections from a small section of the crowd who appeared to have the idea that the proceedings were for their special delectation. Street gatherings for the delivery of electioneer - ing speeches cannot be expected to keep quite as decorous as do church congre gations, and a fair measure of latitude is always understood. But when the desire of the majority to hear in reasonable quiet the presentation of the speaker's point of view is frustrated by persons who ought to know better, then sterner measures in the nature of the arrest of leading offenders might justifiably be resorted to. It is not good for the reputation of the .town that visiting speakers, no matter what their political views, should be com pelled to the description of their ex perience as the worst they have met with —an admission which we regret to learn ...

FOR THE MOTORIST. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 20 March 1912
FOR THE MOTORIST. [By A. E. Peppercorn.] In these articles, which will appear from time to time in these columns, I propose to deal with the car and its care, in such a manner that they will be read by motor ists (novices and otherwise) and prove in structive and interesting reading. I shall endeavour to obtain the experiences of others, and shall be glad if those who have found out tips which they think may assist their fellow motorists will communicate with me, in order that I may include such tips in these articles. Before starting on the real business, it might interest readers to know something about the cars now running about Forbes. There are at present in Forbes and district 44 motor cars and 42 motor bicycles. Thirty-four cars were actually registered in Forbes, and the remaining cen in Syd ney. Two hundred and four licenses have been granted, representing a revenue to the State of .C78. These figures speak well for the -enterprise of the Forbes district, when it is remembe...

DEATH OF MR. R. WILSON. Another old identity of the Forbes dis- trict, in the person of Mr. Robert Wilson, aged 68, passed away at the hospital on Sunday. The deceased was a native of Ballima, county Antrim, Ireland and came to this State 37 years ago. After spend- ing several years in New Zealand and Victoria, he came to this district. He was employed for a number of years on Burrawang station, and afterwards at Ooma. Of late years he had followed the occupation of cab driver, and by his oblig- ing manner and large heartedness gained many friends. Many residents can relate incidents without end of his generous dis- position, which found frequent expression towards those less happily circumstanced than himself. " Bob," as he was familiar- ly known, only took to his bed on Saturday week although he was suffering from a bad cold for some time before. He leaves a wife and four children who have the sym- pathy of a large circle of friends. The funeral took place on Monday morning, the r...
ST. PATRICK'S DAY CELEBRATIONS. A SUCCESSFUL GATHERING. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 23 March 1912
ST. PATRICK'S DAY CELEBRATIONS. SUCCESSFUL GATHERING. The annual demonstration promoted by the Hibernian Society of Forbes to cele brate St. Patrick's Day took place on Wednesday. As in previous years the day was occupied with a race meeting, and concluded with a ball in the evening. Both functions were highly successful. The day was an ideal one, the sun's rays being tempered by a nice cool breeze which tended to make the outing a most enjoyable one. The usual prccession was held in the morning when about 50 members of the Hibernian Society, carrying their beauti ful banner, and headed by the Town Band, marched through the principal streets. The m tendance at the races, although not up to last year's numbers, was sufficient to give the club a profit 011 the day. The ladies attended in large numbers, and there were some very pretty dresses in evidence. The band, under the baton ot Mr. Acret, rendered a choice programme of music during the afternoon, which helped to pass away the int...

Gunning News. From our Correspondent. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 23 March 1912
Gunning ftews. From our Correspondent. A team of Gunning cricketers, eight strong, journeyed to BoganGate onSatur day last and gave the Boganites a good drubbing. Gunning had first knock at the wickets, T. J. Martin and R. C. Rowley going in first. They treated the home team to some rare fielding. Rowley knocked up JOI before being dismissed, while Tommy's share was a neat and at tractive 99. For Rogan Gate Goodacre was top score with 16. After the match our boys were entertained by the home team at a banquet held at Mr. Peter Rcilly's Railway Hotel, where, of course, the Gunning boys did themselves justice to such an extent that they have come back to Gunning and asked their secretary to try and arrange another match with Bogan Gate. I am pleased to be able to report that Mr. Jack Rodgers, one of our popular residents who has been laid up in the Forbes hospital for a few weeks, is knock ing about again and doing well. Rain is badly needed here at present, and farmeis and pastoralis...
