Theatre Royal. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 4 March 1889
Theatre Royal. THE Theatre Royal waa moderately well attended Saturday night, when Friedman's Specialty Company provided a varied but excellent entertainment. The per- formances, vocal and dance, of Miss Nina Tulloch and Miss Aggie Atkinson were perhaps most highly appreciated ; but, judging from the frequent applause, the whole show hit the popular taste. To-night's entertainment promises to be marked by the introduction of several novelties. &nbsp;
The All Stars. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 4 March 1889
The All Stars. &nbsp; THE Bijou Theatre was thronged on &nbsp; &nbsp; Saturdy night, when the All Star Minstrels presented one of their very best &nbsp; programmes. Throughout the audience was very appreciative, and even those who supplied the few moderately well rendered numbers were recalled. The best item &nbsp; was undoubtedly the concluding farce, "Black Justice," which was throughout played so excellently that one prolonged burst of laughter filled the hall during the time it was on the stage.
A Rowdy House. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 4 March 1889
A Rowdy House. IN the local Police Court this morning, Robert Coglan was summoned for having used obscene language in front of his house in Oxide-street. He appeared on crutches, and with his right foot bandaged, &nbsp; having met with an accident at Euriowie some months ago. Mr. Raymond con- ducted the defence. The police stated that they went to the house and heard the language used in the presence of several persons. They also said that there had been many com- &nbsp; plaints about the rowdiness of the &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; place, and Sergeant Saunders elicited that the defendant had received notice to quit, and was going to move that day. The Seargeant said the wife was most to blame. Mrs. Coglan, a determined-looking female, asked leave to address the court and was granted permission ; but when she com- menced' by an allusion to the police, couched is follows:—"There is law- &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &...

Williams and Green. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 4 March 1889
Williams and Green. IT is said that the contemplated match between Williams, the Sydney lad, and &nbsp; Fred. Green has fallen through.Wil &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; liams maintained his willingness to meet Green in a hall, hut to this the other party's friends would not agree, they ar- guing that it was an impossibility to have a straight "go" to a finish on the stage. The deposits will, therefore, be drawn. It would be far better if pugs talked less of their prowess. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;

A Suggestion, [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 4 March 1889
A Suggestion. Í SOME enterprising person or persons has &nbsp; or have been agitating in Burke Ward for &nbsp; a separate municipality, and the ground of the complaint was the distance from the centre to the town of this outlying part. This grievance would be largely diminished if the proposed tramway along Argent-street were to be continued beyond the Duke of Cornwall, an intended terminus, to some central spot in Burke Ward. The Tramway Syndicate is asking the Municipal Council to state terms for the necessary conces- sions in carrying out its plans, and the aldermen of Burke ward might take into consideration the suggestion that it be a condition that the tramway be continued to their ward. &nbsp;

The cul- prit having pleaded guilty to the, offence, replied in answer to the bench, that he was not married, but had a mother to keep. " What! and you get drunk while &nbsp; your poor mother is awaiting you at home! " exclaimed the magistrate; " You ought to be thoroughly well ashamed of yourself. Be off, and mind you don't get drunk again-" &nbsp;
Block 14. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 4 March 1889
Block 14. UPON the invitation of Mr. J. Brandon, secretary of the Block 14 Company, a MINER representative has obtained from &nbsp; the directors a brief statement of what they have done during their official visit to the mine. One of the principal objects of the visit was to arrange matters that, should any accident occur, the mine would not have to cease work in consequence of running short of coke and timber. They had determined upon gathering a reserve by ordering for some time to come rather more than they actually required ; and in this way they would get together about a four months' reserve. Communi- &nbsp; cations were passing between the com- pany and those from whom their coke supply was drawn, and arrangements were almost perfected. They would, how- ever, go to Port Pirie to arrange matters in connection with the unloading &c. there. The question of timber supply had also received the directors' attention ; and, seeing that so very great quantity ...

"Extraordinary Pulpit Utterance." TO THE EDITOR OF THE BARRIER MINER. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 4 March 1889
"Extraordinary Pulpit Utterance." TO THE EDITOR OF THE BARRIER MINER. SIR,-Your remarks in your issue of Monday last in reference to my sermon in the Congregational Church on Sunday evening last evidently proceed upon a misapprehension. Nothing could have been further from my thoughts than making an attack upon Mr. Mackay, between whom and myself exists the &nbsp; warmest friendship. In proof of this he asked me to arrange his supplies during his absence in Victoria, and when on Friday last a few hours before the last train left Adelaide for Broken Hill I received notice that the minister who had agreed to supply last Sunday was unable to go, I at once determined to go myself at great personal inconvenience rather than leave Mr. Mackay's people without a preacher; and my engagements were such that, though I preached twice and conducted young Finlayson's funeral in the afternoon, I left again by the 12.30 train on Sunday night in order to be ready for work on Tuesday morning....

Struck Out. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 4 March 1889
Struck Out. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; JOHN COLLINS, the bailiff of the Court of Requests, this morning proceeded against &nbsp; Roger Devane, in the Police Court, for assaulting him while in the execution of his duty as bailiff. Mr. Edwards was for the defendant, and Mr. Julian repre- sented Collins. Mr. Edwards at the outset asked Mr. Collins to produce the Gazette notice of his appointment. This plain- tiff could not do ; in fact, he did not even know whether he had been gazetted. &nbsp; This was held by Mr, Gower to be a fatal objection, and the case was struck out. &nbsp; Mr. Collins will have a lively time of it for a few days if he fails to unearth the requisite Gazette notice. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;
