TO-DAY'S WIRES. Brisbane, Tuesday. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 13 February 1912
TO-DAY'S WIRES. Brisbane, Tuesday. There were no fresh developments in Brisbane yesterday or this morning, although the strikers hinted at the prospect of those who had gone back to work being badly handled. Ominous reports are current, and extra patrols have been appointed, while the police force has been increased. It is believed an effort will be made to-day by the strikers to hold a procession in spite of the police. The miners at Blair Athol and The Bluff, in . the central district, have ceased work, in order to prevent coal being sent to Brisbane. At a meeting of the council of the Victorian Employers' Federation, the chairman said the strikers had learned their lesson, and realised that a general war upon the people was impossible.

PROGRESS OF THE TROUBLE. Likely to Fizzle Out. Brisbane, Saturday. Mr Ivavanagh, secretary of the Sydney Trades and Labor' Council, stated that he had sent £ 2000 to Brisbane for the strike fund, and that a further £500 or £600 had been promised in Sydney. An important development took place this morning. The chairman of the strike committee announced at the Trades Hall that the Northern unions had demonstrated their solidarity by coming out. It was useless for them to remain out longer, so urgent wires had been sent to Cairns, Bowen, Townsville, Rockhampton, Mackay, and Charters Towers, instructing ail excepting the transport unions to return to work. There will be no cargo loaded for Brisbane from the northern ports, however. The announcement of the northern unions having come out met with a mixed reception from the crowd at the Trades Hall. Many declared that it was just as well they had been 'ordered back to work, as they would have had to go back in any case. Brisbane, Sunday. ...

IN THE MAYOR'S ROOM. After the business of the meeting of the Council had been concluded, aldermen, one single ratepayer, the staff of the Council, and the" Press adjourned to the Mayor's room, where a ; number of toasts were lion\x=req-\ ored. Alderman Patterson, in proposing the. toast-of "The Mayor," said-that as he was not an alderman during the greater portion of last year, he could not say anything of the work of the Mayor, but when he and the Mayor were aldermen previously, though they had many hot and strong arguments, there was, no ill feeling carried out of the Council Chambers, and/lie had always found Alderman Kriwards a straightforward and honest opponent, and one who had attended to his aldermanic duties as well as any alderman he had known. (Applause, and "He's a Jolly Good Fellow.") The Mayor, in responding, thanked those present for the enthusiastic manner in which the toast had been received, and for the kindly way in which it was proposed. Whatever matter he took ...

COMMANDMENTS CONVENIENCE. CURIOUS DECALOGUE TOR. WOMEN. A ca|)le from New York, dated .Wednesday, February 13, runs as follows: — The. feminine half of America today are discussing the new decalogue for women, entitled ".Ten Commandments for Convenience," issued to the women members of one - of the wealthiest churches in Massacliu\x=req-\ ; setts by the Rev. Albert Marion Hyde. The . new commandments are:— Thou shalt not marry for a bank acocunt, or even to escape being an old maid. , it is better to remain single all thy life than to enter into the :matrimonial: state for revenue only. ■ . After marriage thou slialt not put on an old wrapper, leave thy hair on the toilet table, and wear slippers run. down at the heels: nor shalt thou be a slaye of fashions, making thyself a spectacle to the bystanders on the streets,; furnishing jokes for the funny papers,, and causing- thy husband, father, and "son to blush for you.

MUNICIPALITY AND SHIRE. HOT STUFF FKOM AN AIDERMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 16 February 1912
HOT STUFF FKOM AN AIDER\x=req-\ MAN. Amongst the inward correspondence, which was dealt with at the meeting of the iTorbes Municipal Council on Tuesday night, was a letter from the Jemalong Shire, directing the Council's attention to an old. cellar near Bolam's, to some stumps at the junction of Marsden and Condobolin roads, and to the presence of Bathurst burr within the ■"municipality. Alderman I-Iunter took exception to the allusion to the burr. He had read a report in a local paper of the. discussion in the Jemalong Shire Council, and he thought it. was a piece of downright impertinence, and ; unfair- to the Municipal Council, which was dealing with' the burr, whilst the.sliire was-not. What he read . was .that the town council should- be asked to cut the burr in the! municipality. Why, the Town Council was cutting: the :burr, and the shire was doing nothing, arid the ,state of the roads outside of "the municipality was disgraceful. Alderman 'Patterson said the cellar was on' a ...

THE STRIKE. ANOTHER PROCESSION STOPPED. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 16 February 1912
THE STRIKE. ANOTHER PROCESSION STOPPED. As the result of a rumour to the effect that the strike committee was going to attempt to organise another, procession through the streets on Thursday,, elaborate police precautions were taken to^prevent any such demonstration. A large body of police assembled in the market square. The sight of so many police cowed the^mob, and after a few/words from the strike leader, Mr Coyiie, the men dispersed. All the side streets' were guarded by mounted and foot police, and 2000 specials and regulars were kept in reserve for emergencies. The police paraded, all the streets in large numbers, but the only indications of interference came from a mob of hooligans at. the corner of Ann and Roma streets, which kept jeering at the guardians of the law. The police stood this for some time, but subsequently, as the mob showed signs of aggressiveness, they wheeled and "charged with batons waving aloft. The uiob fled panic-stricken, and ,the police reformed, after...

SPORTING MEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 16 February 1912
SPORTING MEMS. (By Mousqueton). Great mares on the turf do not, as a rule, attain equal form at the stud. The opening years of the 20th century were a noteworthy period, so far as racing mares are coucerned, La Car\x=req-\ abine, Wakeful, Cruciform, Gladsome, and- Lady Wallace figuring on the scene at intervals. Lady Wallace, who was the last named of the quintette to make her debut on the turf, threw a Derby winner straightaway in. her-stud .career, while La Cara\x=req-\ bine's produce: have all been moderates.; .So far Cruciform has failed to giv£ the turf anything of note;' but a. solid'prediction is offered that .the lop-eared chestnut daughter of St. Leger will ere long be known as a noteworthy matron. Mr R. Wootton began racing in England in a modest way in 1906, but His position in the winning trainers' list has been improving-each year. In 1906, he won £786, and in the succeeding years won £3133, £6703, £ 11,507, £ 10,013, arid £ 14,016. His total winnings to . the end of la...
