Flatters at lfsirralriiuc. Baecaedike, May 15, 1 The carriers' meeting was concluded at 11 o'clock. A ballot was taken, which resulted in a majority of 16 voting for the resumption of work. The voting was 50 for and 34 against. The carriers will take up loading again to-morrow morning. This is expected to have great effect on the conclusion of the whole strike. Some excitement was eaused at a large mass meeting of unionists to-day by the denunciation of a prominent unionist named Frank Reynolds, a member of the District Council of the Australian Labor Federation. At a carrier's meeting last night a section of the carriers proposed a resolution, inviting the presence of Jack Meehan, a delegate of the Shearers' Union, who has been absent during the continuance of the strike, in the southern colonies. Another section of mem bers invited Reynolds to be present, as he was supposed to favor an early settlement of the strike. After Meehan had spoken, Reynolds said there were several men in...

Scientific Notes. ON SOME OF THE CHEMICAL PROPERTIES OF GOLD. XII. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 23 May 1891
,&k$. [BY A. W. CLARKE, F.G-.S.] ON SOME OF THE CHEMICAL PROPERTIES OF GOLD. XII. IN this article .the tarnisli produced by sulphurization on the surface of gold will be considered with specia reference to amalgamation, Ftofessor Skey "^narking it down" as one of the " foes" to amalgamation. In melting gold I notice that when a pot of gold smells strongly of sulphur, (due to the liberation of sulphurous acid from the entangled pyrites in the retorted cake) the cast bar frequently comes ont of the acid decidedly richer in tint than is the case with the clip turned oat of the interior of the bar for assay. This greater depth of tint is often the cause of disappointment to the pro when the assay comes out, one is led into thinking the yellow color of the bar is entirely dne to the proportion of pure gold assoc iated with 2. the silver in the bar, whereas the yellow color of such a bar is heightened considerably by the tarnish.

CHAPTER XVIII.—A PAINFUL STORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 23 May 1891
CHAPTER XV III.-A PAINFUL STJBY. The bright sunshine of a summer morning shone into the sitting-room, of a lodging house situated in a quiet street not far removed from Hanover square. The apartment, though not wholly uncomfortable, showed little effort of adornment. Moreen curtains, once crimson but now faded to a tawny hue, hung from mahogany poles by wooden rings that rattled noisily when moved; the floor was covered by a carpet somewhat threadbare with the jassage of feet, but retaining much of its primitive freshness where it had been mercifully sheltered by the centre table. A large mirror in a gilt frame, from which the floralj ornamentation had been broken, stood upon the china ney-piece o£ eraked! white marble, and reflected the large bouquet pattern of the wall paper, relieved here and thereby lithographs after Sir Edward Landseer's pictures incased in cumbrous frames. It was just 10 o'clock, and Mrs. Simmons was busily engaged in brushing the crumbs from the centre table,...

Affairs at Rocfchamptoii. Rockhaacptok, May 15. The conspiracy trials were further re sumed to-day. The evidence for the Crown, which was mostly of a documentary nature, Was concluded about half-past 11. Mr. iiilley said he liad no "witnesses to call for the defence, and Mr Power then commenced to address the jury, and had not concluded when the court adjourned for the day at 1 o'clock. In the co-rse of his remarks Mr Power said he thought they might congratu late themselves that the evidence in this lengthy trial was at last concluded. From the very nature of the case, from the very fact of there being fourteen defendants, and from the charge being made one of con spiracy, it was impossible to shorten it more than had been done, and it woul i be neces sary for him to connect the different defen dants with eaeh other, so that he could rely on the overt acts of one mm as evidence against all the others. To do this lie would have to touch on the letters, and he thought lie should be a...

The big dog is down there now, and he's pawing and howlfog, and aches all over. I'll bet your dog stock in his throat, and that he'll choke to death in less'n half an hour.'

Clisti'leviZIe Xews. * OnAKiiXViiii.il, May 15. Practically there is little change to record in the position of affairs, except that the carriers who loaded prior to 22nd March, were allowed to leave. The decision of the Barea] dine carriers will have a natural effect on future development. Fifteen extra police arrived during the week, and five left to strengthen the force at Cunnamulla. On Wednesday night a man named Gray was promptly arrested for hooting free laborers, and was fined £2, or one month's im prisonment for disorderly conduct. Al though he had £21 on his person, he decided to take the imprisonment.
