DEATH OF MR. G. DAVIES. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 13 April 1912
DEATH OF MR. G. DAVIES. We regret to have to chroniclle the death of Mr. George Davies, aged 21, from lung trouble which sad event took place at the hospital shortly after noon on Friday, the 5th instant. The deceased has only resided in the district for about 12 months coming from Sydney to take charge of the Bonny Dell Public School near Eugowra about that time. About a fortnight ago he was in Forbes and rode home on his bicycile. Shortly after his ar- rival home lhe became ill and was conveyed to the hospital where he died as above stated. Allthough only a short time in the Eugowra district the deceased was very popu- lar and his death is sincerely re- gretted by both parents and child- ren. His remains were taken to Sydney for interment by the mail train on Saturday afternoon. Mr. W. E. Luthje had charge of the funeral arrangements.
DEATH OF MR. J. R. DACEY. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 13 April 1912
DEATH OK MR. J. R. DACEY. &nbsp; Last Wednesday's metropolitan papers referred briefly to the fact that Mr. J. R. Dacey, State Treasurer, had that day been admitted to a private hospital suffering from a severe attack of depression and rheumatism. On Thursday our Sydney correspondent telegraphed the sorrowful news that Mr. Dacey had died, suddenly. The deceased gentleman who was 57 years of age, was undoubtedly one of the strongest personalities in the present Government, and his demise will be severely felt by the Labor party. Mr. Dacey was a worker of the strenuous type, and there seems little doubt that his col- lapse was really due to overwork and worry.
