STRAY NOTES. WORN OUT MINERS. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 2 March 1889
STRAY NOTES. WORN-OUT MINERS. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; So Dr. Sisca's scheme for the establish- ment of a Worn-out Miners' Sustentation Fund has been accepted by the Miners' Association Conference as correct in prin- ciple ; but the adoption of the scheme it- self was not decided on: Dr. Sisca, in thank- ing the conference for what they had done, regretted that they had not gone the whole hog, and accepted his plans. Though myself a great supporter of the philanthropic doctor and an ardent be- liever in his scheme, yet I cannot think that the association as a whole knows sufficient of the scheme to accept it at once. It would be far better for the various &nbsp; branches to have Dr. Sisca's plans placed before the branches, thoroughly discussed, and a report of such discussions forwarded to the A.M.A. Executive. Then prior to the next conference they might bring for- ward the scheme, and place side by side therewith such suggestions as the ...
Barrieu Hiner. SATURDAY, MARCH 2, 1889. Opening the Session. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 2 March 1889
SATURDAY, MARCH 2, 1889. Opening the Session. THINGS have already begun to move in a sprightly manner in the Legislative chambers of New South Wales. No &nbsp; sooner had the Assembly been opened &nbsp; by commission on Wednesday than a &nbsp; a sharp tussle resulted over the ap- pointment of Speaker, Messrs. Abbott and Young being named for the posi- tion--the former by the Government and the latter by the Opposition. Even, at so early a stage in the ses- sion's existence an attempt was made to have a party vote taken on this question. But in this the zealous sup- porters of freetrade on the one hand, and the protectionists on the other, were only partially successful, for the tele- graph informs us that several mem- &nbsp; bers said to be freetraders voted with the protectionists for Mr. Abbott. It is difficult to understand how a true party vote can be taken on a question of this nature ; and the fact that five &nbsp; Government supporters ...

Anthony Horder's Estate. SYDNEY, Saturday. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 2 March 1889
Anthony Hordern's Estate. &nbsp; SYDNEY, Saturday. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; The late Mr. Anthony Hordern's estate &nbsp; has been valued at £190,000. Mr. Equity &nbsp; Justice Owen yesterday refused to allow &nbsp; of the forfeiture of 24,000 acres of land in Western Australia, concerning which &nbsp; Mr. Hordern had entered into improve- ment contracts. The Judge ruled thus, on the ground that there was plenty of money to keep the family and also obtain the freehold of the land.
London Chartered Bank. NEW PREMISES. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 2 March 1889
London Chartered Bank. &nbsp; NEW PREMISES. YESTERDAY the local branch of the London &nbsp; Chartered Bank of Australia opened its &nbsp; &nbsp; new premises in Argent street. The wooden building wherein the business has &nbsp; hitherto been carried on was in no way suited to the purpose, and was anything &nbsp; but a credit as an architectural effort. &nbsp; Nearly all the local banks are now credit- ably housed, and although the new &nbsp; premises of the institution under notice are not in any way striking, they are an immense improvement upon those first used. The new building is situate two doors north from Finn's Royal Hotel, and has a frontage to the street of 22ft. The banking chamber occupies the whole space of the front part of the premises, and ex- tends back 18ft. The manager's room &nbsp; opens from the back of this chamber, and the back part of the premises is divided into two rooms to be used as b...
LAURIUM S.M. COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 2 March 1889
LAURIUM S.M. COMPANY. &nbsp; The Melbourne shareholders of the Laurium S.M. Company are making a hullabuloo in consequence of alleged mismanagement. At a meeting held on february 26, a Melbourne paper says it was stated that the directors had not attended to their duties, and had in fact only held one meeting, which took place informally at the Exhibition, when it was decided to make a call of 1d. Share- holders made charges that the whole of &nbsp; the proceedings had been conducted in an illegal manner from the very outset, even the appointment of directors having been irregular. It was shown that the moneys of the company had been expended without the directors having signed the cheques, as they were required to do by the articles of association, and that the company was now in debt. Eventually the balance-sheet, which was signed by the company's auditor, was rejected, and &nbsp; a committee was appointed to obtain legal advice and investigate the position...
Friedman's Minstrels. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 2 March 1889
Friedman's Minstrels. LAST evening several members of the local aldermanic body attended at the Theatre Royal, when a programme &nbsp; &nbsp; similar in character to that presented on the previous night was placed, before a moderate audience. George Gardner and &nbsp; John Gilmore were specially successful as cornermen, and the other members of the company-balladists, dancers and come- dians-worked well and in harmony to please a somewhat unappreciative &nbsp; &nbsp; audience. In view of last Saturday evening's monster attendance, great things may naturally be expected for to-night.
TREASURE S.M. CO. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 2 March 1889
TREASURE S.M. CO. The half-yearly meeting of the Treasure &nbsp; &nbsp; S.M. Co. was held in Melbourne on Thurs- day. The manager recommended that a new shaft should be sunk south of the pre- sent deep shaft, to cut the lode at about 100ft., from which he had little doubt he would be able to pick up the rich ore again. The recommendations have been adopted and tenders called for the work. Mr. J. Badge was elected director in place of Mr. Charles Crook. Messrs. C. Tyan and T. W. Wintle were re-elected, as also were the retiring auditors.
Mountain Maid Leases. SYDNEY, Saturday. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 2 March 1889
Mountain Maid Leases. SYDNEY, Saturday. &nbsp; The papers giving the inquiry into Mr. Abigail's connection with the Mountain Maid leases, were, laid on the Assembly by Mr. J. P. Abbott yesterday. Mr. Abigail, who was then Minister for Mines, was accused of favoring his friends and relations by rushing through the cancel- lation of leases. The report says that Mr. Abigail acted consistently with the law, but under some influence, of which Mr. Abigail was probably unaware, which was brought to bear somewhere in the Depart- ment. The present Minister for Mines states that owing to the manner in which the present Mountain Maid leases were obtained, the holders of them are not en- titled to them. &nbsp;

THE ATTORNEY-GENERAL DISCREDITED. LONDON, Friday. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 2 March 1889
THE ATTORNEY-GENERAL DISCREDITED. LONDON, Friday. Sir Richard Webster is continuing his examination of witnesses in the attempt to connect Parnellism with crime in Ireland. Mr. Healy, M. P., has given notice in the House of Com- mons of a motion that Sir Richard has forfeited the confidence of the House as Attorney-General in consequence of his advocacy of the action of the Times before the Parnell Commission.
In Extremis. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 2 March 1889
In Extremis. JUST before going to press a reporter from the MINER office called at the police station and inquired as to the condition of the old man Burns, who was found feeble and destitute in the street by the police yesterday, and was too ill to be brought before the local court. His condition this afternoon was critical, and the acting Government medical officer had been summoned to see him. From his appear- ance it may ba conjectured that he has lived a life of hardship in the bush, and his constitution seems to be entirely undermined. He has several times been an inmate of the local hospital, and it is inferred that he has hastened the course of nature's decay by alcoholic excess. He was too feeble for removal to the hospital this afternoon, and the police did not think it likely he would recover. Every attention has been paid to him at the police station, and to sustain his waning strength brandy has been unsparingly administered. Weakness, however, prevents his swallowing, ...

Proposed Tramway. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 2 March 1889
Proposed Tramway. At Wednesday's meeting of the municipal council, Mr. W. O'Connor, as agent for a syndicate, submitted by letter the plans of the proposed tramway and asked for the concession of the requisite permission from the council. The plans were prepared by Mr. A. Billingham, C.E., and a letter from that gentleman, explaining the pro- posed works, was read. It is proposed to start by laying rails along Argent-street from the Duke of Cornwall Hotel to the Willyama Hotel, a distance of 60 chains, or just three-quarters of a mile. The foundation would be of lime concrete, 8ft. wide and 6 inches thick ; hereon would be laid hardwood sleepers four feet apart. To the sleepers the rail would be secured by two iron dogs at each bearing, and the &nbsp; space between the sleepers would be filled in with asphalt. These rails would admit of the heaviest cars propelled either by steam, compressed air or electricity ; but the engineer advises that at first horses only be the locom...
At Loggerheads. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 4 March 1889
At Loggerheads. &nbsp; THE Broken Hill and Silverton cricket clubs, which latterly have been struggling for the premiership in the Barrier Ranges Cricket Association, have come to &nbsp; distinct loggerheads. They had to play off a final match, upon the result of which depended the occupancy of the first &nbsp; &nbsp; and second places on the scoring list. The Broken Hillites decided that the match should be played on last Saturday week ; the Silvertonians decided to play it last Saturday. So, as the Silvertonians failed to turn up a week ago, and the Broken Hillites failed to turn up on Saturday, both clubs now lay claim to having won the match by forfeit. &nbsp;
