A New Arrival. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 3 April 1889
A New Arrival. BY this morning'* delayed Adelaide ex- press, Mr. G. A. Milla, who has become part proprietor of the BABRIBS MINIE, arrived in Broken Hill from Sydney. Outside the management of the office, Mr. Mills, it may be expected, will be an acquisition. He has, for many years, taken an active interest in public move- ments, and no better introduction could be brought by him to the Barrier than the following newspaper paragraphs res*; pecting his departure from Parramatta: The Cumberland Argus, of March 9, ri« marks :-44 Mr. G. A. Mills, who hal managed the Parramatta business of Milli and Pile for the past sis years, is about to enter into the newspaper business. He has bought into the BARRIER MINER, a daily . newspaper published at Broken Hill.' Should Mr. Mills take as active an interest in the volunteer and othei public movements in his new sphere as hf has in Parramatta, he will be welcomed as a useful citizen in those parts."

Another Warning. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 3 April 1889
Another Warning. TWXCK and again has the MISER warned the townsfolk that any attempt to jump portions of the land held by the Brisbane Blocks S.M. Company and fronting Crystal-Btreet may result in something more serious than simple ejection. So Margaret Hickey alias Barnes discovered this morning when she and Philip Barnes, a young man, were proceeded: against in the Warden's Court for trespass on the land in question. Mr. McCarthy conducted the case, and the .story went that, when the ground -was recently pegged out, the trespassers wera ordered off and all departed save defendants, who persisted in occupation of an iron hat which they had conveyed on to the land and refused to leave Hence the action. Mr. Warden Gower ordered that the defendant pay 12s 68 costs together with £3 3s profes- sional costs, and desist from further tres- pass. He further added that there was not the slightest chance of the land being thrown open.
Licensing Court. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 3 April 1889
Licensing Court. I Ms. GOWER, P.M., desires that all con I cemed may be* acquainted with the fact j that, in consequence of the Licensing ' Court, announced to be held in Broken Hill on the 10th instant, having lapsed for want of due notice in the Gazette, all notices of applications for licenses should be forwarded to Silverton to be heard at the Licensing Court to held there on the 12th instant. The hearing of the Broken Hill applications will then be adjourned to the court to be held in this town on the 15th instant. It will not be necessary for any local applicants to attend the Silverton court, this proceeding being merely a formal manner of getting over a technical difficulty. The real business will be on the 15th.
Sundry Sport. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 3 April 1889
Sundry Sport. Ii is said that there, was tremendous rejoicing amongst the American colored population at ithe defeat of Joe McAu liffe by Peter Jackson, the Australian colored boxer. In San, Francisco the feeling ran tremendously high, and the colored people now to a man fondly be- lieve that " Pete" can badly, demolish the whole world. Upon the. night of the battle they paraded the streets singing nigger "melodies," with the invariable refrain-" Whar am now; dat color line ?"
STRAY NOTES. CRIMINAL LIBELS. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 3 April 1889
STEAY NOTES. CRIMINAL LIBELS. SEVERAL 'chargea-of criminal libel arel noy, I believe, pending against Australian journalists. Indeed, the harvest'of stich cases has latterly been plentiful, not only in the colony but in England as well. Commenting upon this recently, the Lord. Chief Justice of England offered certain remarks which it would be well to pro- nounce far and wide.' The practice ,of indicting, foe libel' had, he said, grown fo a mischievous extent ; and the' mere possibility of a criminal proceeding waa an oppressive weapon in ' the hands of 'a virulent or unscrupulous opponent. A ! mere. individual. squabble: between two persons , should not be, he contended in conclusion, a proper subject of indict- ment. Quite right ! In a criminal libel prosecution the Crown's, aid is called in on behalf of the prosecution; and, this being so, ic is plain that, the Crown, representing general public interests, should be .directly , affected. And surely general public' interests are no...

Robe Bald Hill. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 3 April 1889
Robe Bald Hill. A FEW days ago it was. stated in, these columns that, several Silverton .share- holders in the Robe Bald Hill and King- fisher S.M. Oo. offered strong resistance to the winding up of the 'concern. It will, therefore, be highly satisfactory for them to learn that a general meeting of shareholders held in Adelaide on Monday afternoon decided not to wind up the com- pany at present, there being still] a con- siderable sum in hand. A motion was, however, carried request ng the directors to obtain a report upon the property from nome thoroughly competent expert, j further instructing him to obtain and for I ward five tons of ore now at grass to the Fort Adelaide smelting works. To-morrow a short series, of; articles dealing with the present, aspect and pros- pecto o| the country between Broken Hill and Mount Browne, by our special re- porter, will be commenced, in tbe MJNKR.

A. M. A. Meeting [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 3 April 1889
A. M. A. Meeting THE Kiosk was well filled last night at rthe usual weekly meeting of the local branch of the Miners' Association'. The vice-president (Mr.7. C. - J; ' Pound) was chairman/. There being no corres- pondence, the reports -»ere called on. i - SDMDAT ?WOBK.". .-'-v Sixteen truckers employed at the Pro- prietary mine had signed a complaint that they received no concession ,j£or working on Sundays, and had beetí informed by the boss ;that no extra allowance would be made. The'vice-president suggested that a .proposition be made instructing the secretary to write to the Mine Managers' Association. Mr, H. Bennet son moved that the secretary write to the Managers' Asso nation asking that a similar concession be allowed to the truckers working on Sundays as is allowed to the miners proper. Mr. Cock seconded the proposition. Mr. M'Lean thought it would be better to appoint delegates. kitQT a little further discussion, the proposition was carried unanimously. Mr. Bowe moved that...
More Joy. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 3 April 1889
More Joy. i IT is understood that Keats' saying, "A thing of beauty is a joy for ever," has been appreciated by the members of the local municipal council to the ' extent that they have all a* last availed themselves of the offer made by a local photographer to have their counterfeit presentments per- petuated by means of the camera. The enterprising artist has engaged to enclose the portraits of the twelve first municipal apostles of Broken Hill in a handsome frame, to be suspended in the 'council chamber and remain for all time-that is as long as the mines laatr-a reminder of the civic pioneers of this town.
The Crystal Rink. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 3 April 1889
The Crystal Rink. THIS establishment has, as has been announced previously, passed into energetic hands, and the management evidently intends to spare no pains and expense to revive the pristine glories of the Crystal Skating Bink. Now that the summer is about over, and? pedestrianism is not a meeting process, it may be safely assumed that the portion of our i population which is on pleasure bent will feel that need of exercise I which ;. springs 5 from the - .feeling I of " life in every limb. " Means. of grati I tying this need are rare in this township, , and rinking goes far to fill the gap. The ' ordinary attractions of gliding or tumbling I on the slippery surface-according to the j proficiency of the performer-are to be supplemented this night and until Satur- day by the performances of Professor i Aginton, who to-night and to-morrow night will give a miscellaneous dispJay:cof his abiHtyandtbumo^ ançf on Friday &lt;and ^^rJ^iiighti1 will per- form his daring feat of s...

Death of Mr. C H. Wilson. A TELEGRAM -from our Silverton wpie sentative announces the'death of MfcfC. H. Wilson, at Silvertont ^ 'Thia sad'event is by no means unexpected, as Mr. Wilson, has been .very, ill fair several weeks past, i He has bien attended ¿nd treated for ' typhoidfever by Dr.;Thomson, and, de i spite, the utmost care and attention, he succumbed at an early hour this morning. Mr. Wilson is an old resident on the -Barrier field, and, until , recently, was manager of the Umberumberka mine. Under his superintendence the concen- trators were , erected , on this property about two years ago; and in those days he bore the very highest reputation as a skilful manager. When he came to the Barrier silver mining was not new to him, as he had spent a good time in the Thames district of New Zealand, there taking an active interest in many public matters. Seven or eight months ago he resigned the charge of the Umberumberka mine, and was appointed manager of the Broken ! Hill Conso...
Impartiality. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 3 April 1889
Impartiality. I A COEKESPONBENT.writes :-TT"I think the meaning of the above word is a thing, if not unknown, at least forgotten on the Barrier, especially among those in authority over us. It is not long since that, when I was walking along Argent street, about ll o'clock at night, I heard a policeman command, in gruff and surly tones, a landlady of a hotel to close her doors, as it was after ll o'clock. A slight expostulation was "&lt; made, and reference made to the fact that two hotels opposite were still wide open. A prompt and insolent reply was made, accompanied by a threat. Now, last Sunday morning a hotel in Oxide-street, not very far from the police station, carried on business until 5 o'clock, when there were present a number of people drinking, dancing, and singing, and with the piano jingling!. Again, there is another hotel in the principal street where occasionally the piano is going until daylight, accom- panied by drunken _ brawling, and occasionally relieved...
