MASONRY. IMPORTANT CEREMONY. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 23 January 1912
MASONRY. IMPORTANT CEREMONY. Oil Thursday night last, what might be considered the biggest initiation Masonic ceremony that has ever taken place in the State occurred in the lodge room of the Lodge Lachlan, Royal Arch Chapter, when most excellent Bro. Jenlcinson and his officers initiated sixteen members, included in which were fourteen from Condobolin Lodge. It may not be generally known that Forbes is the only place west of Orange that is able to confer these degrees, and when it comes to the highest degrees of masonry, Forbes is the only town outside of Sydney able to confer tlini. About a month ago Forbes lodge had the pleasure of installing these degrees on about a dozen .of the Parkes brethren, so that we expect to see in the near future the formation of the highest degrees of masonry in the sister towns of Condobolin aiid Forbes. About midnight on Thursday, the brethren, to the number of 40, assembled in the lodge room at Forbes, and sat down to a banquet provided by Sutton B...

PUBLIC SWIMMING BATHS. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 23 January 1912
PUBLIC SWIMMING BATHS. It is perhaps a little late in the season to bring up the question of. swimming baths for Forbes, that is so far as fully awakening public interest in such a project is concerned. As far as the need and utility of public baths are concerned, the question is an ever present, and even urgent one. It is safe to say that a very large proportion of the people of Forbes cannot swim, notwithstanding that the town is so surrounded with water as to be practically an island. It is a case of water everywhere, and not too many swimmers. Of course, the lagoon is not suitable for bathing. The water is not fit for it at low ebb, and in any case there is not the necessary privacy. The river is just a little too far away, except to those who can get a lift,to take them there. This is a pity, for there are N some lovely bathing holes, and a swim in this weather is to be numbered amongst the luxuries. What is wanted, for the convenience, clean-^ liness, and health of tne public,...

CURRENT TOPICS. THE NEXT TEST. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 23 January 1912
CURRENT TOPICS. THE NEXT TEST. The Kangaroo is sore put to it. He does not sleep o' nights, for both days and nights are for him full of phantom Hobbses, Douglases, and Gunns. Se has no time for anything but plans of how to put a twist in the British Lion's tail. How to do it? Here is where the theorist has a. least of suggestion. tSHbJbBIP papers are just now full of pTOtings for the undoing of Mr Alphabet Doug\x=req-\ 'as and his merry men, and the diversity of ideas is great. One section thinks that if only Noble is brought ^ack the Englishmen's cake is as Tood as dough. Another clamors loudly for MacLaren, the Queensland express bowler, to back up the attack of the mighty Cotter. Yet another wants Mailey, the Redfern 'googlie" •nerchant, on the principle that, Hor\x=req-\ •lern's "googlie" tricks having been discovered and laid bare, more "goog\x=req-\ ■ie" in another guise should be turned •>n the foemen. One thing that stands out very clearly is that a mightly stimulus has ...

The Forbes Advocate, TUESDAY, JANUARY 23, 1912. ALL FOR SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 23 January 1912
Jw'te TUESDAY, JANUARY 23, 1912. ALL FOR SYDNEY. An important movement is afoot In the central western portion of the State, having: as its object a linking of the northern and western railway systems, the opening up of new country, and the finding of fresh outlets on the seaboard. Forbes is not drawn into this movement, for the ■ reason that it has secured a connec\x=req-\ itoii with the southern line, and will thus have direct communication almost due east and south with Sydu«y and Melbourne, being, in fact, signally fortunate in that respect. The only complaint Forbes has is one that it shares with every other railway town in the State—its traffic to the eastern seaboard is along a ridiculously over-taxed and congested route, affecting the interests of everyone compelled to use it. It is instructive to look at the map in relation to this stupid system of ours. All the lines of the State have a common objective—Sydney. The traveller may want to make from Bourke to Tenterfleld, but...
FORBES JOCKEY CLUB. COMMITTEE MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 23 January 1912
COMMITTEE MEETING. A meeting of the committee of the Forbes Jockey Club took place on Friday night at the Albion Hotel, Dr. Broadbent (vice-president) in the chair. At a conference of the Western District Racing Association held at Orange, and at which dates were fixed for the race meetings of the affiliated clubs, certain dates were allotted to the Forbes Jockey Club, and the old commitee, dissatisfied with these dates, had requested the delegate of the Forbes Jockey Club, Mr C. S. M'Phillamy, to report why such unsuitable dates had been allotted, and the report was furnished accordingly, the following being a precis: — The delegate reported having attended the meeting of the W.D.R.A., which was an important one, held at Orange, when matters of importance were discussed. The only matter worthy of report specially, however, was, in the opinion of the delegate, the allotment of dates for the autumn race-meeting of the Forbes Jockey Club. Going to the meeting with a special desire to ...
