Gates erected by public subscription commemorate John Inglis and his thirty years of service from 1904 to 1933.

Tenterfield, Thursday.
A fine tribute to memory of the late Cr. John Inglls was paid at an impressive ceremony when Cr. W. Harry Smith, president of Tenterfield Shire Council, unveiled a tablet on the memorial gates erected at the entrance of the Legume public school, in the presence of a large gathering. Mr. Bunker, headmaster of the Kyogle High School, represented the Department of Education, and the Mayor of Tenterfield (Ald. E. J. Petherick) attended as president of the Border Caledonian Society, of which the late Cr. Inglis was a vice-president for many years.

Crs. I. McL. Inglis, A. J. Crisp and W. H. Tomkins, Mr. W. C. Andrews, Mr. T. Rice, and a number of Tenterfield residents also attended.  The chairman of the organising committee Mr. R. Duncan presided and the secretary (Mr. R. A. Wallace) traced the history of the movement set afoot some years ago to perpetuate the memory of one who worked hard tor the district.
