Mr Dowling has oined the well-known firm of W; IC. Garnsey, Senr., stock and station agents, and his big experience of stock, and genial, personality,: should commend him in his new sphere, where we wish him all sorts of luck. Mr A. J. Reymond, than -whom, there is no . better or more widely liked man in Forbes, lias been on the sick list since just before the holiday season. It was reported that Mr Reymond was down with fever, but the report has not been officially confirmed, and to that extent is without foundation; " We understand „ that Mr Reymond is now doing very fairly under the circumstances, and every-' one will hope to see his popular figure about again soon.

POLICE AND EUGOWRA. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 2 January 1912
POLICE and EUGOWRaZ P The people of Eugowra and.Senior-. Constable Justllius have . a .real, grievance against the police dept.— Eugowra, in that itis not fully polic-; ed, and Senior-Constatrte'Justilius, because of the excessive duties cast upon his shoulders. " He has been statione'd there-for some years, and has nearly as many different duties as the year has months, and while ther township steadily grows, it can readily be understood that the strain becomes heavier and heavier. Eugowra is a growingly, important place, which should have ample police protection, and . the- residents should see that ■the department- is well- shaken up over it; It is said that one reason for. letting thing's go as .they are is that very - few .pplice court. case's are recorded there. :I yIf-this is regarded' as an argument/It is a ridiculous one\x=req-\ It could mean;.(1) that -Eugowra is a very law-abiding centre; or (2). that: the solitary • "officer , stationed there is too busy attending, to cl...

MINING MEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 2 January 1912
MINING MEMS. There was a nebulous, elusive sort of rumour round town last week of a rush for platinum and gold to Platina; in the neighbourhood of Fi\x=req-\ fleld,'but on getting ot the nucleus of it it turned out to be\ based on the unimportant fact that a couple of~ prospectors-had bottomed on pay dirt 1 on portion of a small lead that had been lost for a chain or two,'and on i the unimportant fact that whilst the„ visiting buyer at one time offered only ,1G/- per ounce for platinum, he had now. sprung: ■ to £ 5-/5 /- ^ per ounce, which .makes all the difference to the digger. Messrs.Boyle.iand Rymeiv last week put through- about a cwt. of rich quartz at: Mr J. S. Sanderson's cyanide works at Calare, yielding 2«oz. :of gold, worth about. £3/10/- per oz. 'The-stone ; was crushed in a berdaii -pan,;?and then cyanided.

IMPORTANT TO STOCKOWNERS [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 5 January 1912
IMPORTANT TO STOCKOWNERS I A case of importance to stockowners was withdrawn at the police court on Tuesday. The Inspector pf Nuisances for the Forbes Municipal Council had summoued Mr Stuart Gordon for travelling stock through a street of the town, which was not an authorised stock route, to witj a street leading from the goods yards at the railway station. As a matter of. convenience, it has been the custom for the railways to give, permission to stockowners to untruck sheep near the goods shed, instead of at the trucking yards. The trouble can easily be obviated by .the erection of a gate by the railway authorities openiug from the station yard at this point on to the town common. Or, failing that, the Council could have the street proclaimed a stock route. Mr D. J. Moloney, who appeai*ed for the Council, stated, in withdrawing the case, that Mr Gordon had been made the scapegoat for the railway authorities.
