THIS HEAT WAVE. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 23 February 1912
THIS HEAT WAVE. i ' tV. Old residents of Forbes confess, and the confession is wrung from tlierii under thermal pressure, that'not for the last'twenty years has there been such a /continuous stretch of hot weather .'as that which' we sire now experiencing. The record thermo-. meter register in Forbes is 116 degrees Fahrenheit, but the conditions surrounding such a register are not those which obtain to-day. ' The post ofiice records are now taken for'the Federal statistician under conditions, which are- exactly similar1 at every post ofhce where meteorological . instruments are supplied, and therefore the records are accurately comparative. In the oid clays,i when the thermometer ran up to an alleged ""fr2-0 degrees in the shade, the temperature was not taken - by the appliances nor under the same condi-: tions which prevail now. Moreover, the oppressiveness of the weather is not altogether indicated by the' thermometer; it is.the humidity in the atmosphere which causes the distress...

LIBERAL ORGANISATION. MR W. H. CLUTTON'S WORK. Reports received at this office indicate that since the arrival of the Liberal organiser, Mr W. H. Clutton, in the Ashburnham, electorate, there has been a marked revival of Liberalism, and old supporters of the Liberal party say that the Ashburnham electorate has never been better or\x=req-\ ganised so far as Liberalism is concerned.

The branches now formed, we understand, are as follows:—Forbes, Parlces, Wyanga, Peak Hill, Mungery, Cookamidgera, Goobang, Ticlibornc, Alectown, Bumbury, ...

Says a traveller:—The river frontage from Moonbi to Forbes has no grass; coming to Bogandillan there is only dry stuff, and very thin; from there to Davidson's, similar, and from there to Wliaite's, where the Condo\x=req-\ bolin road crosses the road to Wya\x=req-\ long, very dry; from there to Koy\x=req-\ una, owned by. Mr C. E. Rowley, very scattered dry patches, and that prevails to within 25 miles of Lake Cud gellico. These were the conditions that prevailed last week, but recent showers will no doubt have altered the aspect.

LAND APPEAL COURT. ITS PEKSONNEL. At. the conclusion of the meeting of the Forbes branch of the Farmers and Settlers' Association" on. Saturday, Mr R. Officer, who was elected to take the chair in the absence of the president and vice-presidents, had a word to say regarding the personnel of the Land Appeal Court. Though he had nothing pei-sonally to say against Messrs Rennie or Currie or Houston, who constitute the Court,\x=req-\ yet he thought the Farmers and Settlers' Association would be looking after its own business if it objected to the personnel of that Court. He considered it was absolutely necessary to have a practical main on the board, who could impartially weigh the evidence. There were a large number of appeals to be heard, and in each the Lands Department was on the one side and the appellant on the other. Now that Court consisted of three men who had been Undei'-Secretaries o£ Government Departments, and who had been associated with them all tlieir lives, and so it wa...
