THE ERLISTOU^ DISTRICT. ..Good euco-ir.tgetnent is- being ob tained by those working on the lode line recently discovered in the Erlis toun district. On Thursday, Sept. 4t, 89oz, additional to that already ob tained, were lodged in tiieW. A.' Bank, Laverton '? (Vay-s . the 'Mercury'). Fifty odd uuueos . of it came from Brooke and party's 1-mse (the Limon ite), and the balance from the Dolerite, which is owned by Cox and party, but portion- of wh'ch is let on tribute to Hayes and party. It was from the latter, where the balance of the gold came from. Brown and Doyle, Curmiugham and McLoughlin, and Cox and party are also on gold. It is the general epinion that a large amount of metal will be won from this line. The way in which the gold occurs is somewhat remarkable, as the richest of it is obtained in patches in the lode, a trace being almost invariably a sign thai a patch is not far away. Not a great deal of work, so far, has been done An inspection by a geologist may assist the pro...

The syndicate are to be con grain ? .hitfd for (he syst-matic aud economi cal 'manner in which the plant is ^--heing erected, and they hope- soon to raise suffieient ore to justify the erection of a mill. It would not be surprising to see this part employing quite a number of men, as the (Jlniloth mine has been producing psy.ib-s ore for about eight years. The Bur- banks Ivanboe, about- a quarter of a mile away, on a parallel lino of lode, could also be cheaply worked if equipped with a wiuding plant which could be driven by air from the Glenloth, no doubt, at a low figure, thu3 enabling them to handle their ore cheaply and save the cost of erecting expensive haul ing pow...

'Oceania,' the official organ of the Italians, in the Commonwealth, is up against Collier's Mines Reguiaton Bill, which proposes, among other things, to prohibit the employment or aliens in the mines in any greater proportion than one in 10. 'This action of the ScivVhi'i Hov ernment,' says 'Oceanic,' 'is put, forward without any excuse.

MARDA AND MOUNT KEITH. ; 'List year 1,608% tons of ore were onilled at the Mt. Jackson battery for a return of 3,091.3uozs., \alued in $11,128/16/6, an average of ' 138/ pei ton, or 'by far the highest in the State. The sands contained S99.36 fine ozs.; which brings the average value of the ore up to 158/10 per ton. At least 80 per cent, of the gold won at the Mt. Jackson battery came from parcels which had t.o be carted 10 miles from Marda; yet, despite the fact of the Jackson mill having established a bet tei record than any other in the State, the Mines Department appear to be ' hesitating about getting water and erecting a battery at Marda, which has proved to be the most promising new field m W.A. The battery at Mt. JSleith (50 miles from Wiluiia;, is one of the last public mills that has been started by r-he Mines Department; yet it will be seen from the undermentioned list of crushing^ that the average -value of the ore there is little more than half that of Marda.
