Beastly Language. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 25 March 1889
Beastly Language. THE local police court was crowded this morning by the great unwashed evidently anxious to hear the case against Emma &nbsp; &nbsp; Coghlan, a woman of powerful physique and well-known attributes, accused of having been drunk and disorderly in a public place on Saturday and of having used very foul language at the time. De- spite her formidable appearance and repu- tation, the prisoner seemed very meek and mild in court as she pleaded guilty to the charges preferred against her. Con- &nbsp; stable Jackson stated that the woman was arrested in Argent-street near the Theatre Royal at 9 30 on Saturday night, and that her language and conduct were so violent as to be a perfect scandal to the hundreds of people about at the time. She was with difficulty placed in a cab and taken to the police station. The officer further remarked that the woman's neighbors complained of her house as a nuisance. &nbsp; &nbsp; Called upon by the Ben...
A Desirable Reformation. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 25 March 1889
A Desirable Reformation. HERE is another bit of work for Mr. Wy- man Brown, the newly-elected member for this district. If it be true that new brooms sweep clean, and our member has any of the desirable spirit of the reformer about him, he will not neglect the oppor- tunity. In the Petty Debts Court this &nbsp; &nbsp; morning, Mr. J. R. Edwards, on behalf of the solicitors, called the attention of the bench to the number of cases in which the summonses against debtors &nbsp; had not been served in consequence &nbsp; &nbsp; of the latter having left the colony, and urged that some step be taken to bring about legislation giving power to stipendiary magistrates to grant warrants to detain debtors in any &nbsp; cases where there is a reasonable sus- picion that they contemplate flight from the colony. He suggested that a deputa- tion, headed by the police magistrate, wait upon the judge at the ensuing circuit and press the mater upon his ...

The Usual Promise. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 25 March 1889
The Usual Promise. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; MR. GOWER, P.M., has a way of his own in dealing with persons brought before him who plead guilty to drunkenness. From such of these that he has reason to believe intend for the future to "eschew &nbsp; sack and live cleanly" he extracts a promise of amendment, and he then dis- charges them with a caution. In this fashion he this morning dealt with James Cornelius, an elderly man, charged with having no visible means of support, and with a respectable-looking middle-aged man named Richard Bowden, who was found lying drunk in Argent-street on Saturday afternoon. To the allegation of the police that he had no money, did no work, was kept by charity, and was in the habit of drinking to excess, Cornelius re- plied that he had a balance of £40 in the bank at Kadina. He said he was a brick- layer. "Why, you've got the shakes now" remarked the Bench, adding, "you &nbsp; won't be ab...

Another Local Epidemic. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 25 March 1889
Another Lota! Epidemic. YESTERDAYa representative of the MINER &nbsp; had an interview; with one of the leading medical men of the town on the preva- lence of sickness locally just now. "The causes of the spread of typhoid" said the professional gentleman, "hardly need explanation; but there is another disease which is epidemic in the town just now, and which, in the absence of other trace- able general cause, I can only attribute to the same source, which is accountable for the presence of typhoid, that is the in- sanitary condition of the town. You may not be aware that although yellow jaundice of the type which is now show- ing itself here is by no means unusual in isolated cases. It is very rarely that this disease takes the form of an epidemic ; in fact, only six previous instances are for certain known to the profession. Now, jaundice is always found to arise from some specific cause ; but to account for this outbreak in Broken Hill, no one has cause to cover all the c...
The Filth Fiend. [BY WIDEAWAKE.] [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 25 March 1889
The Filth Fiend. [BY WIDEAWAKE.] &nbsp; IF there be any persons in authority in Broken Hill so crassly ignorant of the requirements of sanitation as to imagine that the town is in something like a proper sanitary condition, it is time they were undeceived. The prevalence of typhoid alone should be enough to convince them of the horrible danger of disease which still surrounds the residents of this place. Everyone of our aldermen, therefore, every paterfamilias, every mother and wife, every person in charge of a house- hold, however small, should read the joint report of Dr. Ashburton Thompson, chief medical inspector of the Board of Health, and Mr. George Stayton, M.I. C.E., of the Sewerage Department of Public Works, upon an outbreak of typhoid in two of the suburbs of Sydney, recently &nbsp; issued from the Government Printing Office. The inspection was made under instructions from the Minister of Works, in consequence of the attention aroused by the suddenness and...

South Australian Mining. -?- - ADELAIDE, Tuesday. &lt; Mr. T. A. Masey, the managing direc- tor of the Blinman copper mine,, amongst. others,etatoa;that at the end of this month he will be compelled to reduce hands, and also wages, owing to the recent great fall in the price of copper ; but the mine will not be stopped altogether. The best men are to be sent on to the Wirrialpa silver mine, also in the northern district, and under Mr. Masey's charge; which is reported to be in splendid condition at present. Operations here have, however, been retarded through the floods in January washing away the roads. The work of effecting repairs to these ways is still in progress.
Salting Gold Samples. THE LEIGH'S CREEK SPECIMENS. ADELAIDE, Tuesday. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 26 March 1889
palting gold Samples. THE LEIGH'S CREEK SPECIMENS. ' M; , ÁDELATDI, Tuesday. 'The disclosures regarding the alleged salting of gold samples sent by the Oreat Northern Prospecting Association to the Government Department for report, and which specimens, it was stated, were from a gold mine at Leigh'sCreek, are causinga great sensation. This morning both papers devote leaders to the subject. Afr. George Pleass, upon being interviewed on tile subject, stated that he was confident of the great value of the property till yesterday, and' had not sold any of his interest in it. There was no doubt that a great swindle was proposed to be worked, but who was to blame was hardly clear. Two tons of stone similar to that submitted to the Government experts had, it appears, been treated at Fulton's Works, and only resulted in a grain and a half per ton. It is reported that the matter has been placed in the hands of the Grown Law officers for the purpose of instituting an investigation into the wh...
