The Bena correspondent of tlio "Lachlander" writes that Tuesday last was a gala day, or rather night, at Bena. From baout 6.30 t&lt; S.3 0 p.m. people from far and near were continuously arriving at Bena hall, intent 011 doing honor to Mr. and Mrs. W. Ridley, junr, who are leaving the district after a resid ence of over 25 years. After par taking of refreshments in the din ing room, the company adjourned to the hall, which was filled to the door.

In And Around Sydney. Written Specially for Country Readers. EFFORT LARGELY WASTED [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 23 March 1912
In And Around Sydney. Written Specially for Country Readers. (By T.C.B.) EFFORT LARGELY WASTED It transpires now that effort was largely wasted wlieu experts were engaged to examine school children In the metropolis and report upon their physical disabilities where fluch existed. In one district alone, the Minister for Education is report ed to have said, over 2000 notifica tions of physical defects in children Wore sent to parents, but only in 400 cases was notice taken of them. Further particulars were not given, but it is probably safe to assume that in the majority of cas es the defects notified concerned either the eyes or the teeth, or both. Also, it would appear to be safe - to assume that in the majority of such cases the parents found it inconvenient to consult either an oc culist, or a dentist, or probably both, so young Australia had just to get along as well as could be expected in the circumstances. Thousands of youngsters in Sydney need glasses, teeth, and many oth er....
CENTRALISATION. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 23 March 1912
CENTRALISATION. It will not be long before Sydney &aa a population of three-quarters of n, million. One of the metropoli tan papers, in commenting upon this relapsed perhaps accidently, into au admission which usually is not forth coming. " This growth," said the paper, "comes about in various ways , , new arrivals from over-sea Sind occupations in the city, &nd they stay there." That is the act ual fact. Young immigrants are be ginning to swell the population of Sydney largely, though the accepted teaching is" that they go into the country, and on to the land. Also, "there is the constant and rather to toe regretted influx from the country .which never seems to cease." Again, .there is the fact, revealed by official Statistics, that among the metropoli tan population the number of mar riages last year was the largest yet recorded, and the total number of births had also not been equalled previously. In each case the pei* centage rate per thousand was re markably hig...

Lachlan Liberal Candidate. MR. A. G. MANNING SELECTED At Condobolin last week the ballot for the selection of a Liberal candidate for the Lachlan closed, and resulted A. G. Manning, 59b; W. J. Ferguson, ex-M.L A., 362; informal it Mr. Manning has already secured the selection of the Farmers and Settlers' Association brandies, and his candidature will doubt less be endorsed by the executives of both bodies. . The choice is generally accepted as a wise one, and those who are familiar with Mr. Manning, who is well-known in the Condobolin and VVyalong districts, predict that he will put up a good light in the effort to oust Mr. " Andy " Kelly from the representation of the electorate. But the present member has many friends quite apart from his party followers, and the task of defeating him is now rendered more difficult by the alteration of the electorate boundary, giving Labor ap proximately a 250 votes advantage. Still, report hath it, the Liberals are quite con confident.

Mr Stevenson was in the chair, and there were present Messrs Broderick, McPlieo, Brennan Campbell, Booth, and tlie secretary, Mr. Lowe. The chairman explained the ob ject of the meeting. They were laboring under considerable difficul ty, as most of the members he sup posed were awarci of. They had expended £9 on thecourt which was of no use at all. and the only way ho could see out of the difficulty was to get the courts asphalted. The members might discuss the matter after the general business had been dealt with. This was agreed to. The secretary read a letter from the Sydney Tennis Association, asking for a match at Forbes. But as the courts were not in order at the present time it was decided t...

MOLOXG I'.X'. BOARD. At the lust meeting of tlio Molong P.P. Board tlie rabbit inspector, Mr. Hutton, reported that since Februar; 21st he had traelled 31)8 miles and made 102 inspections. In the parts of the district he had travelled over (Canowindra and Eugowra), own ers had mostly done good work and rabbits showed a decrease. Four holdings weren't being satisfactorily treated in respect to the destruction of rabbits, and he recommended that two of these be prosecuted.

In reply to a question both Inspec tors said that no cases of wilful ne glect in regard to the upkeep o£ netting fences had come under their notice.

General Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 27 March 1912
General Moies. Though t.lio now "Hansard" may pie ise -Mr. Willis, who lias apparent ly got the interesting publication, en tirely under his own guidance arid direction, it doers r.ot appear to be giving unalloyed satisfaction to members of the Opposition in the Assembly—which is not surprising in the House last week the Quest ion of the completeness and aecur ace'y of the reports of the debate cropped up, and both features of the work as carried out under tlio re formed methods was seriously im tpugned. The Minister for Works 'had himself to explain tlio omisaion from tlio published records of a statement lie made, and he was kind enough to credit the lapse to the noise in Parliament preventing Ilia words being hoard by the reporter. Then Mr. Levy, an Oppositionist, chipped in with tlio assertion that he could affirm that "Hansard" had "not been too accurate lately;" while Mr. Henley followed with a woeful complaint, that "every word he said" on one subject in his speech had been c...
