A Moving Pillar. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 26 March 1889
A Moving Pillar. IT would require the descriptive powers which Southey showed in his " How does the water come down at Lodore ?" to do justice in writing to those exeorable in- flictions peculiar of sandy barren distrio+s and known as whirlblasts. Such a reflection was aroused by watching an exceptionally massive one of these moving madly-whirling columns of dust and sand which at 10 minutes to 1 o'clock this afternoon was to be seen gyrating and "gimbling" (to quote Lewis Carroll) 1 on the reserve just behind the new court- house. At and about thU spot the sandy dust'lies thick, and was sucked and torn up to* swell the massive red-brown column, whose head reached high towards the sky and there dispersed into light clouds, which could be seen floating off in several directions. The column moved slowly off across the railway line and broke itself on the Masonic Hotel, which must have been a treat for the inmates. "
Government Buildings. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 26 March 1889
Government Buildings. MB. MCGBEOOB, who, on behalf of the Government, is supervising the erection of the new courthouse and police-station and cells on the reserve, Btated to a MINER representative this morning that both these : buildings'should, with reason- able haste and barring at present unfor neeable obstacles, be completed by July next. As the police station is more urgently required than the courthouse though the latter is only a shade less -it is probable thatj-the former will be ready for occupation: first, perhaps early in June. The work has been much thrown back by that very old cause of complaint-the delay in the arrival of timber owing to the necessity of tran I shipping at Terowie.
Nolan's Water Scheme. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BARRIER MINER. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 26 March 1889
Nolan's Water Scheme. TO THE EDITOR 07 THE BARRIER MINEE. SIB,-I see that Mr. Hogg, aa manager of the Nolan's Water Scheme, is going to call for tenders for constructing reservoir, &c. As a large shareholder, I should like to ask Mr. Hogg a few questions through your columns. Is the company floated and registered ? If so, who appointed the directors, &c. ? I have never Been any meeting of shareholders advertised. Is it not usual when a company is floated to call a meeting of shareholders and elect directors, &c.? This does not seem to have been done. I have applied several times to the promoters for information, but they seem to be as much in the dark as myself. If Mr. Hogg will kindly throw a little light on the matter he wUl greatly oblige myself and other shareholders.-I am, &c. A SHAREHOLDER. I

J. jssTKBUAY evening a meeting of the local Anglican congregation was held at the Tn^Hotó.:|^he:subject chiefly under discussion was the state' of the finances. íTJÍe Rev. C..G. E. Ashworth, the incum- bent, presided, and about 30 other gentlemen were present. The chairman said the business waa to""consider the present state of the church. - He asked Mr. Morgan, the convener of the meeting, I to give some definite particulars. I Mr. Morgan said that he supposed it was known to all present that Mr. Ashworth had forwarded his resignation, rand it became necessary to arrange for his I successor. The Rev. Mr. Hoporaft, of Petersburg, was staying in the town, and j the meeting had to consider what ofter J could be made to him. It was understood that the Bishop would be glad to appoint Mr. Hopcraft, but first it would be I necessary to provide for the stipend, and I ascertain what amount that gentleman j would: require.

Manager's Report. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 26 March 1889
Manager's Report. SAJISOH S. MIKE.-The managerreports: "Since my last report I-have sunk the western cutting 20ft. on the underlie. There is a fair, amount of ironstone, with chlorides showing frequently all the way down, hut nothing regular. The eastern cutting is on a lode running north-east by I Bouth-west, and ia of fair thickness ; but it is mixed with country and requires careful Borting. Have started a cutting near the western boundary, and think it must have dipped or run out. There are about 300 tons at grass."
"The Cannon's Mouth." [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 26 March 1889
" The Cannon's Mouth.? ANOTHER crowded , house r greeted the second representation - of ; Mr. Travers-. Vale's nüntary drama, " The Cannon's .Mouth," at the Theatre Royal last night. Being surprisingly well mounted, and, as .far, as the leading characters are con- cerned, moBt capably acted, the audience 'did not stint their applause. Miss Alma, who sustains' the part of the heroine, Marie Courtney, does so creditably, and ¿was deservedly encored at the oloae of each of her songs. The' sole remaining female role was -played by Miss Lena Salinger with: all: her-.accustomed : grace and aplomb? * Mr." Maitland as Arthur Ellington is somewhat of a laggard in the love sceneB with his. adored one ; and if he were'photographed in the position which, he. assumes, when attempting to escape' from the ruined mill, he would, we are persuaded, be the firBt to laugh at the utter ridiculousness of the situation. Captain Disney, in the person of Mr. Fitzgerald, made a most excellent scoun- drel; an...
Amongst the Mines. [BY OUR MINING REPORTER.] THE EAGLEHAWK. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 26 March 1889
Amongst the Mines. [BY ou» MINING REPORTÉE.] THE EAGLEHAWK. TUE Eaglehawk mine is situate upon the northern bank of Stephens' Greek,: straight through from Bound Hill town« ship, and has the reputation of possessing the most picturesque camp upon the Barrier. Ic is one of the oldest of the claims now working, as it was pegged out by Mi. J. Hall about five years ago, abd some ore of a very high grade has frequently been obtained from it, both in the early days and quite recently. I regret to state, however, that, after looking carefully over the claim yester- day, I am bound to condemn the mode of working adopted by the manager. The whole of the workings seem to me to lack system, and to have been carried out in a most haphazard manner, especially the more recent portions of the work done. I Any person looking at the mine as it now I stands open for inspection, not having a I previous knowledge of its richness, would I be quite justified in condemning this I claim as being utterly wo...

The Manner of Meetings. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 26 March 1889
The Manner of Meetings. THE unfortunate individual who follows the : occupation - :of ; press reporter 'in Broken Hill treads indeed a thorny path. Among his many - other ' troubles and trials is the fact that it is very rarely indeed that the chairman of any meeting ho is called upon to report has a clear knowledge of the duties of his position.' A. proposition is put in two or three different forms by. the mover. It fre- quently happens that he runs motion and speech together to begin ' with in such a manner as to make it impossible to tell " t'other from which." Then, as he ambles along, he receives suggestions from this side and: thar, which he often accepts and adds to bis original proposi- tion. The result is that when he gets to the end of MB, oration he ;- comeB out with a thoroughly'mixed-up' motion, bearing little resemblance to the 'one with which he started. But this is not'"alL' After hearing some other speaker, the mover will, without asking consent, amend his proposit...
Neighborly Feeling. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 26 March 1889
Neighborly Feeling. A SOMEWHAT amusing feature in connec? tion with the sanitary work being carried on in the town by the municipality calls for notice. Persons who have, cesspits that require to' be cleaned out are gene- rally heard to say that they do not see the .necessity ol the inspector coming down upon them individually; but as soon as -the -compulsory work is done, they change their tune, and, as a rule, are load in their assertions of the absolute essenti- ality of having these places abolished, and insist that none of their neighbors shall Wallowed to escape the salutary visits of tiie municipal contractor. They are most ready to point out to the sanitary inspector the existence of nuisances on neighboring premises, and thus materially assist him in his duties. Having compulsorily been made clean themselves, they are most strenuously desirous that all their friends and neighbors shall enjoy the same bless- ing. They " tell on" one another without the slightest compunction....
