Theatre Royal. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 25 March 1889
PaiNcrPALpT,;noïdoubt, through a change in the means of enlisting popular support, the management of the Travers-Vale Dra- matic Company succeeded in attracting an excellent house to witness the initial presentation.of . " The Cannon's Mouth," at the. Theatre. Boyal, on Saturday night. The drama is one of Mr. Travers-Vale'B own composition, and the writer certainly cannot ' be accused of . being ignorant of the intense love of the present day for startling'Sensations. Throughout this appears /to - have been kept before; the dramatist's eye. so that it is not ' surpris- ing if here" and there probabilities are strained tq produce thrilling effect. Such things are not, however, taken into account; ¿by [the,; average. playgoer, and, therefore,' it "would have" been extraor- dinary had not the production* of the piece given genuine- satisfaction to the large number , who witnessed it. The company > itself is . of better Equality than moBt of those recently, playing here. It contains,...

Salting Gold Samples. A TIMELY DISCOVERY. THE LEIGH'S CREEK GOLDFIELD. ADELAIDE, Monday. : A great sensation bas been caused by the . issue of an official memorandum respecting the alleged gold discovery ¿ear Leigh's Creek, in South Australia. Me ws. Brown, the Government Geologist, D. D. Rosewarne, Inspector of Mines, G. W. Goyder, Junr., Government Assayer, to-day forwarded the following mémorandum to the Crown Lands Department :-" We the undersigned certify^ that on careful examination of samples of stone forwarded with a letter on the 14th inst, on behalf of the Great Northern Gold Mining Syndicate, the appearance of a glutinous substance was at once detected on two samples where the gold was thickest. On boiling the smallest sample with water for a minute all the gold came off the stone, the glutinous substance having dissolved, proving incontestably that the sample had been artificially produced. The gold dissolved out. This sample is in our opinion alluvial. The coarse speck ...
A Foolish Act. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 25 March 1889
A Foolish Act. JAMES BOSCANCE, a young man, 21 years of age, well-known in the town as a light- weight boxer, was charged before Mr. Gower, P.M., this afternoon with having attempted his own life on the 7th instant by cutting his throat. He appeared in court with a bandage round his throat &nbsp; and was allowed to sit during the hearing. &nbsp; Constable Urquhart produced a blood- stained razor with which the deed is alleged to have been done, and deposed that, having been summoned to the house inhabited by accused on the afternoon of the day mentioned, he found marks of blood all about a room. He then went to the hospital where he found accused in the accident ward and the latter then said "I did it on the spur of the moment." &nbsp; Accused was arrested on his discharge from the hospital to-day. Dr. Seabrook testified that about 1 p.m. on the 7th instant he was called to see accused at his father's residence and found him suffering from a clean, freshly in...
A Shepherdless Flock. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 25 March 1889
A Shepherdless Flock. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; AT a church meeting after the service in the local Baptist Church last night, it was resolved that the establishment be closed for one month. This step has been ren- dered necessary by the fact that, the Rev. Mr. Coller having gone to take charge of a pastorate at Newtown, Sydney, there is no minister available at present for the vacant cure in this town. The local &nbsp; &nbsp; pastorate is under the control of the Baptist Association of Adelaide, and that &nbsp; body does not appear to be able to arrange at once for filling a vacancy caused by the departure of a minister to some place beyond its dominion. There seems to be no reserve or relief supply of Baptist clergymen. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;
Hospital Items. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 25 March 1889
Hospital Items. &nbsp; THERE are at present in the Broken Hill Hospital 30 patients, 26 of whom are under treatment for typhoid fever. This morning Jimmy Boscance, the light-weight pugilist, who recently attempted suicide, was discharged, and was taken into the custody of the police. Of the fever patients the majority are progressing &nbsp; satisfactorily. Amongst them is Mr. W. V. Purcell, the vice-president of the Typographical Association, whose con- dition is this morning regarded as most favorable. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Prince Bismarck has repeated the assurance that the place of Europe is &nbsp; established for many years. &nbsp;
Abigail's Effigy Again. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 25 March 1889
Abigail's Effigy Again. THIS morning in the Petty Debts Court, L. Scott sued J. R. Edwards for a sum claimed for photographs taken of the hanging of the effigy of Minister Abigail, five months ago. The defendant is the well-known solicitor, and he informed the Bench that he could not recognise the suit of the claimant in this matter as he was only a collector for the firm of the photographers, and consequently could not sue on their behalf. On this ground claimant was non-suited. Mr. Edwards also denied liability.
The Late Mr. Taplin. ADELAIDE, Monday. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 25 March 1889
The Late Mr. Taplin. ADELAIDE, Monday. The funeral of Mr. Taplin, who lost his life at the Coffee Palace fire on Friday &nbsp; morning, took place on Saturday and was largely attended by clergymen, members of the Government and Parliament, many prominent citizens, and a contingent of black men and women. At a public meeting to be held this evening, suitable recognition of the deceased's work in the cause of the aborigines is to be taken into consideration. Mr. Taplin, it will be remembered, was superintendent of the Point Macleay Aborigines Mission Station

MAKING IT WARM FOR WEBSTER. LONDON, Sunday. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 25 March 1889
MAKING IT WARM FOR .ÎL.- WEBSTER. - ; . LONDON, Sunday. J . ¿In. the House of Gommons, according : . to his previously announced intention, Sic William Vernon Harcourt^ one of Mr. Gladstone's chief supporters, warmly attacked the Attorney-General, Sir Richard Webster, for the manner in which the latter conducted the case for the Times before the Parnell Com- mission. Sir William accused Sir Richard of having known the untrust- worthy character of the witness Pigott, and of not calling the latter until ... other scandalous charges -had been made against Mr. Farnell and his associates. Sir Richard Webster re- plied that Pigott had written intimat- ing- that he could not stand cross examination by Sir Charles Russell, which communication was shown to Sir: Charles Russell five days previous to the calling of Pigott. The Attorney General also said thats in deference to the wish of Sir Charles Russell, he did not communicate the contents of the letter, to the Commission at once. Sir Richa...
Church Matters [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 25 March 1889
Church Matters GREAT changes are being wrought at the local churches. Elsewhere to-day it is announced that the Baptist Church will be temporarily closed in consequence of the removal of the Rev. Mr. Coller ; and to-night two meetings of congregations will be held to consider matters in con- nection with their respective pastoral control. The Anglican congregation will, &nbsp; it is expected, shortly lose the services of the Rev. C. G. E. Ashworth, and it is more than probable some strange dis- closures concerning the finances will be made this evening. It is deemed probable that the Rev. Mr. T Hopcroft, of Peters- &nbsp; burg, will succeed Mr. Ashworth. The Congregationalists will most probably to- night conclude to regretfully part with the services of the Rev. R. Keith Mackay, who may in a couple of months time be welcomed by the Congregational Church in Sandhurst (Vic). As his successor it is possible a very hard-working clergyman at present laboring in the Thame...
