THE SOUTH AND CENTRAL MINES. [By Telenaph.1 Rrnfepn Hill. Anril 10. News reached here to-day that an attempt has been made in Adelaide, Melbourne, and Sydney to weaken the market for Souths and Centrals, and the movement is stated to have had its origin in Broken Hill. The temporary stoppage of the Cornwall smelter has doubtless been used as a means of disturbing the market, The repairs to the smelter are going along satisfactorily,! and it .is regarded as pretty certain that another start will be made to morrow, Excellent ore is being raised at the South, and the mine never looked more encouraging. The prospects both of the South and Central mines have much improved of late; ?

CAPTAIN SERGEANT AT BAROSSA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 13 April 1889
CAPTAIN SERGEANT AT BAROSSA. Captain Sergeant, of tbe celebrated Band and Albion Consols mine, Bailarat, being in Gawler for a few days, has paid a visit to the Barpssa Ranges and the site of the deep lead. He ps not unacquainted with the character of the country, as he has visited it on previous occasions, having been over it in 1872, in 1887, and since. He is much impressed with the country, and thinks there is a good future befqre it. He believes that capital willie re- quired for its development, but thinks that the holders of the ground require too much, They take too roach in paid-up shares, and also take out ;of the money contributed, leaving too little for the development of the mines. He confesses thai the promoters want to make too much. In Victoria he says matters are differently managed, the . promoters beine satisfied with far less than what the pro moters in South Australia demand. Mr. Sergeant says at the Enterprise Deep Lead the character of the country is precisely ...
ARRIVAL OF THE Earl and Countess OF KINTORE. A LOYAL AND ENTHUSIASTIC WELCOME. PORT ADELAIDE IN HOLIDAY ARRAY. CORPORATION ADDRESSES AND FELICITOUS REPLIES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 13 April 1889
AR R I VAL ? J ;?? OF THE Earl and Countess OF KINTORE. A LOYAL AND ENTHUSIASTIC WELCOME. PORT ADELAIDE IN HOLIDAY ARRAY. CORPORATION ADDRESSES AND FELICITOUS REPLIES. An event which ha3 bBen looked for ward. to ever aince the cables at the end of December last year flashed out the news that the Earl of Eintore had been appointed Governor of South Australia, in succession to Sir W. O. F. Robinson, was celebrated on Thnraday. In Adelaide, aa the capital city, the greatest preparations for the reception of Lord Kintore and his Conntess had naturally been made, bat that there had been a healthy rivalry at Port Adelaide goes without saying. Hitherto Glenelg, at all events of late 5 ears, has been the landing place of new Governors of the colony, and on the occasion of the advent of Sir Wm. Robinson it was impossible to give that eclat to the proceedings of welcome which is usual, for the simple reason that Sir William arrived on a Sunday. The late Mr. ThoB. King was at that time the may...
REPLACING BRIDGES OVER THE LIGHT. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 13 April 1889
REPLACING BRIDGES OVER THE LIGHT. TO THB EDITOB. S,ir— In reconstructing the bridges demo lished by the recent floods it would be wise i#r the Government to purchase all the dangerous logs along the river, both dead and alive, or build the bridges in each form as to allow the'logB to pass down the river without coming in contact with the main structure of the bridges, otherwise it will be useless build ing them, except on the Bwing system to enable the huge logs to pass through. I have been acquainted with the River Light and its floods for the last 25 years, and have never before seen euch tremendouB logs caBt high and dry,— I am, &c, JOHN O'SULLIVAN.
INTERVIEW WITH MR. DILLON. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 13 April 1889
IXfrftKVIlLW WITH MR. DILLON. A representative of The Advertiser was in troduced to Mr, DOlori on the promenade deck of the Orient soon after she cast anchor. Mr. Dillon is a tsfll, spate, thongtArnl looking man, whcse face tells of the amount of mental -' worry and excitement he has passed through. The organisation of a movement bo vast as that which has for its object the securing of Home Knle for Ireland must necessarily weigh with tilling effect -opon its leaders, and Mr. Dillon is evidently one who has never spared himself. He impresses one, above all, as being an ear nest man. ., ' whi i came our to austbalia,' he paid, ' was to a large extent a question of - health; otherwise nothing would have induced me to leave Ireland in its present situation. I have definitely decided this morning to open the campaign here. In the other Australian colonies I Ehall visit the largelinland towns, such as Bailarat, in addition to the capitals, and then go on to New Zealand and America. I hav...
Mining Intelligence. (For other Mining News see page 19.) THE BARRIER MINES. Broken Hill, April 11. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 13 April 1889
Joining Intelligence. (For other Mining News seepage 19.) THE BARRIER MINES, IBvfFele-nanh,l Broken Hill, April 11, Appearances at present indicate that the temporary stoppage of the smelter at the South Broken Hill mine was caused through a piece of careless workmanship, and has nothing to do with the principle on which the furnace is constructed. The defect is very trifling, and the work of making the iron jacket watertight has progressed smartly. It is expected another start will be made tonight. A discovery likely to lead to important re sults has been made in the workings from No. 1 shaft at the South mine, A crosscut from the winze at the 200-feet level proved the lode to be 8 feet wide, containing decomposed galena and composition ore, and' driving on the course of this haB revealed ore of a superior character. Until more work has been done on the find its extent cannot be known,
General News. MR. DILLON IN ADELAIDE. AN ENTHUSIASTIC RECEPTION. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 13 April 1889
[?] MR. DILLON IN ADELAIDE. AN ENTHUSIASTIC RECEPTION. Such an event as the arrival in Australia of a politician of tbe importance of Mr. John Dillon, M;P,, naturally evoked all the inborn enthusiasm of our Celtic fellow colonists, as well as of the thousands of Australians who Sourish under a system of self-government much more complete than that which the Irish nation has eo persistently claimed for the greater part of this century. It was at first thought that the fact of Mr. Dillon being a passenger by the steamer Orient would have the effect of clashing with the reception accorded to his Excellency the Governor, but Mr, Dillon's reception committee very wisely arranged mattersso that the receptions were kept entirely distinct. By an early train Sir Thomas Esmocde, Bart, M.P., and Ms. J. Deaay, M.P., the other two Irish delegates, who reached Adelaide from Melbourne early in the week, went down to Largs Bay with Mr. F. McM. Glvnn. M.P. fnmgidantof the South Au& tralian b...
