LATEST TELEGRAPHIC. IN PARLIAMENT. Another Censure Motion. Defeated by 40 to 34. Sydney, Friday. Mr Wade moved another censure motion in the Asesmbly last night, to the effect that the Government does not.possess the confidence of the country. He vigorously denounced the Government for its treatment of Mr Robinson, late chief of jthe "Hansard" staff, and declared that the people at the ballot box would, mark their disapproval of such- conduct. Mr M'Gowen made a spirited defence, in the course of which he stated that the present disappointed office-seekers would be told in a few weeks that they must remain in the cold shades of Opposition for all time. He denied that Mr Robinson had been "butchered." A sharp passag;e-at-arms occurred between the Speaker and Mr Wood, the latter being compelled to apolo\x=req-\ gise.

BROOK'S PICTURES. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 23 February 1912
BROOK'S PICTURES. A most satisfactory attendance, considering the weather, witnessed Brook's Pictures at the town hall on Wednesday night. It just shows the popularity of these pictures that a good-sized audience could be drawn by them into a hall on an extremely hot and stifling night like Wednesday. As Mr Brook himself remarked, each person was deserving of a gold medal for brave conduct. The programme made amends for the unfavorable atmospheric conditions, however. It fairly teamed with good things, and was put through without the suggestion of a hitch. "Little honey gatherers," with which the programme commenced, presented a | flne series of studies, the dramatic ) sketches were, excellent, and the j comics were out of the ordinary good, including "A heat wave," so delightfully funny and apropos, that the 1 audience shrieked with laughter.

The Forbes Advocate, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 1912. RAILWAY EXTENSION. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 23 February 1912
®§e Jkte §Mocate, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 1912. RAILWAY EXTENSION. The question of railway extension and. development is one of constant interest.. In this /issue, we publish details concerning- two important proposals, oner'of which is of direct concern to Forbes. Both are what are ternjsd^ "national lines,'.' connecting JBroken Hill -with tne seaboard. The Condobolin to Broken Hill line is a very well-known -proposal, and: does not call for special reference . here. The other is an ^-almost entirely new suggestion, and offers a big range for, consideration. It will be remember-) sd that the Public -Works' Committee in 1908 were strongly of the opinion hat the Cowra to Canowindra exten\x=req-\ icn should riot stop at that," but iventually be taken pn, via Eugowra :nd Forbes, to Euabalon'?, and thence 'o Broken Hill. The Public Works '•ommittee had two motives for their recommendation—(1) the nature of counti'y to be served by such a line; and (2) the impossibility of the present line ...

The gentleman'was referring to umbrella grass, which balls up against the fences, and is lifted over by the wind.
