The harvest is now concluded, and has proved to be a fairly good one, but the farmers are now hampered with the difficulty of a shortage of trucks, thus being unable to dispatch their grain as quickly as they would wish.

AN EARLY PIONEER. DEATH OF MR. THOS. WHITL[?]Y. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 4 January 1912
AN EARLY PIONEER. DEATH OF MR. THOMAS WHITLEY. The death at Blackheath, on the Blue Mountains, on Friday last, of Mr. Thomas Whitley, at the age of 81, removes another of the links with the days of the early gold diggings, and with the commercial life of Sydney in the fifties. He was born in Lon don in the year 1830, and sailed for Australia on October 20, 1852, in the ship Resolute, commanded by Cap tain Lewis. A call was made en route at the Cape, and the vessel ar rived at Sydney in March, 1853. The Resolute was subsequently wreckcd at Balaclava, with all hands. The brothers of Mr. Thomas Whit ley—George and Charles—were paint ers of repute. Indeed, George would very probably have taken a very high place had he not been cut off in his prime. He exhibited at the Royal Aca demy, and an example of his work is to be seen in the National Art Gallery of New South Wales. On his arrival in Sydney Mr. Tho mas Whitley went to the Ovens dig gings, and on return settled at Ray mond Terrace, ...

Sanderson, who is cyaoid ing the tailings of the shufc-dovra Lach lan quartz mine at Calare, was victimi sed for his year's profits by the theft of a quantity of gold precipitates, which had been lodged in the slab shanty at the works. The thief removed a couple of slabs from the edifice, and got away with about a few score pounds of the zinc shavings, containing the gold, but if they are to be of any valuo to him he must either be able to treat them chemically, or dispose of them to a "fence" possessing the necessary skill. The robbery occurred on the 16th ult., and so far thero is no clue to the thief. A hard-working man came into town last week with £41, and hoped to give his wife and family a good Christmas time, but though ho was asked by a friend to put: his money into safe keep ing whilst he looked on the wine when it was beer color, ho refused, boasting that he was quite capable of looking after himself. The sequel proved how hollow was his boast, because s...

Matters at the Tuion Sliiro Council meeting on "Wednesday had proceeded smoothly, and councillors were congra tulating themselves on the way they had started the .\cw Year, when at about 4.20, the last, item ou the busi ness paper—a notice of motion by Councillor Godfrey—precipitated a thunderbolt on the heads of unexpected councillors, and nuido the rafters of tho chamber resound once more wirth that famed eloquence of Turon Shiro states men. The motion was to the effect that the Engineer (Mr. A. A. Patter eon) be asked to pay the £10 (the amount granted lb Contractor Burns) to tho Turon Shire Council. At tho outset much preliminary skirmishing took place as to whether the motion was in order.
