It was stated in refutation that over-insurance is never permitted wilfully; and, as a matter of fact, every possiblo precaution is taken to avoid it, The leading firms deny that they or their agents give countenance to such practices, and whenovor cases of over-insuranco do occur they are due either to mis representation or to a combination of circumstances which make it easy for an error to happen, even when the greatest care is exercised.

STILL ON THE UP GRADE. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 20 January 1912
STILL ON THIS UP GRADE. .. Just now in tlio commercial world: few studies, if any, are so interest ing and educative as that of the upward tendency of all wages and prices. This up-lifting, is in pro gress all along the lines fj'onl A to Z in tlio business calendar, and just where it is likely to bulge out on a fresh spot at. any minute is be yond the power of any one to fore see. Yet another instance lias eomo to light, this time in con nection with shipping freights. It concerns Avhoat shippors directly, and other shippers indirectly. The liarquo Inverlyon is said to have re fused 28/9 per ton to load wheat at Sydney for tho Channel. Her' owners asked 20/G while the own ers of a steamer asked 32/6. An other barque got 27s per ton, a ship 27s 3d, and a second ship, for South Australian wheat 20s 6d per tori. These rates are from 7-s 6d to 10s per ton higher than the ruling quo tations this time last year, and it means that the grower will get that much less for his grain. ;

TH13 CHEAP AND NASTY .WAY. Sydney's harbor, also its favorite surfing bays and -beaches' aro shamefully dosecrated, not by the caroiess, thoughtless, irresponsible householder who usually comes in for a. heavy share of whatever blame is going, but by municipal councils. The sanitary and scien tific way, and withal the clean and stU'o way, to dispose of garbage is to cremate it. The cheap and nas ty, way is to tow it outside the Heads and dump it overboard where by a good deal of it washes baclc ou the foreshores and the beaches.

The Forbes Times. SATURDAY, JANUARY 20, 1912. KABBITS OA THE CO.ADIOX. A measure of local interest lias been focussed this week on the con tinued prevalence of tlie rabbit pest and the efforts to suppress it. This was by virtue of the prosecu tions at the instance of the Pastures Protection Board, which took place at the police court on Tuesday last, and particularly the case against the aldermen of the municipality in their capacity as trustees of the common. This was the second time within the comparatively short per iod of six months that tlie inspector of tho P.P. Board had deemed it his duty to report oil the efforts of the trustees to keep down the pest 011 tlie land under their con trol as being unsatisfactory, and that tlie board had resolved ' to follow up that report with the cus tomary legal proceedings. There seems reason to suggest, however, that in these proceedings both the inspector and the board have been a little over zealous in the adoption of the rather arbitrary...
