The Forbes Advocate. TUESDAY, JANUARY 9, 1912. THE CZAR OF RAILWAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 9 January 1912
®|e |wte ^b&ocate; TUESDAY, JANUARY 9, 1912. THE CZAR OF RAILWAYS. The State Treasurer is emphatic in his reference to the present system of controlling the railways. Waited upon by a deputation, with a string of requests for changed and improved conditions, Mr Dacey clearly hinted that, in his opinion, the time, was ripe for a reversion to the old system of management by parliamentary meddling, with the commissioners in the position of head officials, carrying out the behests of politicians. The country- will do well to study this question well before empowering Mr Dacey, or anyone else,- to bring the railways once more under the parliamentary thumb. No one who re Tiiembers such things, can forget the constant suggestion of intrigue, and worse, surrounding railway management of a few years ago. It was common property that there were logrolling and jerrymandering in those days, to an extent and of a nature as to do no credit to the country, and those who were managing its af...

ENGLAND ON TOP. THE SECOND TEST MATCH. (Specially written from Melbourne for 'The Advocate.") [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 9 January 1912
ENGLAND ON TOP. THE SECOND TEST MATCH. (Specially written from Melbourne for 'The Advocate.") The second test match, just con-; eluded in Melbourne, has emphasised more than one salient point. Many critics, or experts, as the Melbourne dailies are pleased to call them, had\x=req-\ been led to believe that the present. English eleven would not win one of the tests, but they are now inclined, to the belief that unless Australia's top notcliers strike their true form, Australians will have to part with 1 the ashes. Bardsley, Trumper. and Hill were absolute failures in each innings, and none of the Australian bowlers, troubled the Englishmen over much, . iwth the possible excep-; tion of Hordern, who was in his element towards the end of the. Englishmen's first innings? Cotter - bowled well on each occasion, as also did Whitty, but each of these men lacked the sting of successful international, bowling, and although Armstrong kept the runs down in the second innings, he was not successf...
LATEST CABLEGRAMS. London, Monday. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 9 January 1912
LATEST CABLEGRAMS. London, Monday. Mr Winston Churchill, in explaining the recent changes in naval administration, says that the Minister must have a war staff in the way that a general in the field has one, its personnel representing every grade of the service. He says that the functions of the war board are advisory, not administrative, and an essential feature of the scheme was that the First Sea Lord is enabled to advise on grave issues, without being weighted with the burden of detail. The German press reproduce a long interview, published in a London paper, in which the Kaiser is represented as Britain's warm friend. Pan-German newspapers declare the interview an insult to the German nation and Emperor. Mr Winston Churchill declares that Home Rule will strengthen Great Britain, and draw h&r neargj^,to the United States, and aiof the English-speaking races. Two thousand wood carters have struck at Bradford" against the employment of non-unionists. A lockout, involving 1...

THE WEIR. AND OUR WATER SUPPLY. Discussion in the Council. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 9 January 1912
THE WEIR. _ AND OUR WATER SUPPLY. Discussion in the Council. . In the report of the Waterworks Engineer, Mr D. F. Underwood, which was submitted to the Forbes Municipal Council at the last meeting there was a suggestion that the aldermen visit the weir, and make a naked-eye inspection. It requires no microscope to see that the river is silting-up, and Alderman Sam has for some time past been pointing this out. . . . In order to fully understand this question, it is necessary to point out that any locking up of -waters on any river which traverses a big territory, is pregnant with damage, not only to the local riparian landholders and local.inhabitants, but to the denizens of the towns which have grown up on the banks" of that river lower down. . For instance, if Goolagong were to build a weir 200 feet high, Forbes would naturally begin to cry because its inhabitants were not able to get cod for breakfast, simply because the cod needs water, and Goola gong would have made a corner in...
