"THE MAN THEY COULD NOT HANG." [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 9 January 1912
"THE MAN THEY COULD NOT HANG." The above is the title of a sensational four-act drama, which Messrs Curran, Devonport, and Armita'ge will produce in th'e Forbes town hall on Friday night next, 12th inst. This play is founded on the life story of John Lee, a man who, after repeated unsuccessful attempts to hang him, served 22 years' imprisonment, and at the end of it was found protesting his innocence. "The planks of the scaffold may have swollen with rain as the public imagine, the bolts may have been rusty, the lever ma'y have jammed, but the question that puzzles the world at large is—why did the mechanism of the scaffold not work that morning with John Lee?" The company will also appear on Saturday night, when a different piece will be staged."

PROPOSED HOSPITAL RACE MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 9 January 1912
PROPOSED HOSPITAL RACE MEETING. We understand that a proposal was considered by the hospital committee last night for a day's racing in aid of the hospital's funds. The suggestion is that the day following the annual picnic races be fixed upon, and that the picnic club be invited to control the meeting, which it is proposed to hold on the Forbes racecourse. If a meeting is held under these conditions, it is stated that Messrs C. S. M'Phillamy and S. Jones have very generously undertaken to provide the prize money. We understand that the committee heard of the proposal with favor, but did nothing, as a new committee is shortly to be elected.
