Last week he committed four cases to the Cowra Sessions from 1 Kdorawatha, whilst on Wednesday l another two charges were heard at Young, and .sent on to the Young Quar ter Ses&lons on 30th March.

In a matter of this'kind it Is hard to say whether the man who forges'a cheque is the only person to blame. ' People in business are al ways being victimised by this means. Strangers come along and present a cheque in payment of goods, it is cashed and away he goes.

W(\t PRteas With which is Incorporated THE BURRANCONC ARGUS FRIDAY. FEBRUARY 5th. ELECTION OF MAYOR. On Monday night the election of } .Mayor for the ensuing year will be held? This is a question which in some quarters around town is being freely discussed. To an outsider it would appear that none of the nine aldermen want the Job, if one is to Judge by re* marks passed by them when a sugges tion of this or that alderman standing for the position is made. "Oh, he * won't take it-he doesn't want it-ror he has too much private business to attend to"-are common ' expressions made by each alderman when referring to the candidature of any other repre aentative of the ratepayers. Others who profess to be "in the know" aver that there's not an alderman sitting at the table who would not accfent the position if he thought there wa.? any chance. However, the general op inion seems to be that the present Mayor (Aid. L. R. TIerney) will be re-elected. During his term of office the retiring May...
