CHAPTER IX. IN PURSUIT. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 27 March 1889
CHAPTER IX. IN-PURSUIT. I waa still weak from one of the most dangerous operations of modern surgery, when the shock of Trinopoulos story as /fco your flight came upon me. This, superadded to the suffering I had endured, well-nigh crushed me, and for 'many^veary days I \ias ill. ? ;,I saw no reason *o doubt Trinopoulos : assertion. What interpretation could -I, haye upon your letter, but the one which suggested itself to me at first ? You looked upon me as a madman. When we last parted, I had used actual violence towards you. I had deceived you through these long years by keep- ing back the secret of my malady. Madness, violence, deceit : . surely 'serious reasons enough to take a woman from her husband. And you had fled with Denison. I remembered my old jealously of him and your admiration for his good Qualities. I could well conceive that, 'disappointed in me, half in fear of me, you had confided yourself to* him, though under what circumstances I could not guess. Hor could Trinop...

A Generous Directorate. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 27 March 1889
A Generous Directorate. IN connection with the movement for the relief of the miner, John McLean, who was permanently disabled through an accident which happened to him while working on the property of the Maiden Rockwell S.M. Co., the legal manager thereof (Mr. Granville Price) has for- warded from Melbourne the following letter (with cheque enclosed) to Messrs. Rakow and Fischer :-" My directors have full sympathy with the memorial that you and others have forwarded for further assistance to thiB man. They had previously paid £19 4s. for medical atten- tion and £20 to the man himself, in dis- charge of any claim he might have on tho company. It must be remembered that the accident was the result of gross care- lessness. Still I am delighted to be authorised to enclose for McLean a fur- ther sum of.- £30, as the result of your appeal, which I heartily trust will be wisely, used." The Maiden Rockwell Company is assuredly generous.

From the Ashes. AMONGST the many'iew and imposing ätructnrea recently'built or id course of erection upon that portion of Argent street over which swept the fire of No- vember 5, there is none which so attracts the eye as the premises built to the order of Mr..

r Manager's Reports. BÏ lt STAK ¿M. CO.-«4 I beg to sub- mit you my report of work done up to date/: Before starting work on the pro- perty I made a careful examination of the No. 1 Bhaft, and found that the ore in the drive was dipping south and under- lying west, and that by sinking a-new shaft south-west of the old one we would be more likely to cut the lode of ore in the drive. I started the contractors to sink a new shaft Bouth-west of the old one, the size being 6 x 4 in the clear, and is timbered up with 6ft. sawn timber. I measured the work this morning, and found the shaft to be 34ft. deep. On Friday last, when down about 30ft. the can trac tor cut the cap of the lode, show- ing galena and carbonate of lead. The lode is underlying west and dipping south. From the present appearance of the lode it seems rather unsettled, but I consider by the rime the contractors complete their contract they will be properly into the lode." Dr. and-Mrs. Bose"'are instituting an action agains...
