Barrien Miner. THURSDAY, APRIL 4, 1889. The Western Country. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 4 April 1889

THURSDAY, APRIL 4, 1889. The Western Country. TO-DAY the first of a short series of I articles giving an account of a recent   journey through the western country is. printed, and will, we think, prove highly interesting. Comparatively   very few people know anything at all about that great stretch of country, comprised within the electoral districts of Sturt, Wilcannia, Wentworth and   Bourke, and extendingr from the Victorian border on the south to the Queensland boundary on the north. The majority think of it as " The Barren West," as it has been called, and so content themselves, without pausing to consider whether its         wretched condition is not to a very great extent directly attributable to the lack of attention which our Sydney legislators have bestowed upon it. When a Governor passes through it by easy stages, he is on his return lauded as one who has accomplished a brave action...

P,M. for Broken Hill. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 4 April 1889

P.M. for Broken Hill. MR. WYMAN BROWN, M.L.A. has had a lengthy interview with the Minister and Under-Secretary for Justice in regard to the appointment of a police magistrate at Broken Hill for this town alone. The Under-Secretary was astonished, on com- paring last year's police and court returns to find that no court of petty sessions outside the counties of Cumberland and Newcastle had so many cases dealt with as at the Broken Hill Local Court. And in the latter county the only court whose business is greater than that of Broken Hill is Newcastle. The Under-Secretary   has also received further particulars of the great want existing for the appoint- ment of the magistrate, and Mr. Brown is confident that the matter will shortly be arranged.

Petty Offenders. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 4 April 1889

Petty Offenders,. THE police court sitting this morning did not occupy many minutes. Mr. J. J. Williams presided, and three individuals charged with drunkenness received their deserts. William Paisely pleaded guilty to having been drunk while in charge of a horse and buggy in the streets. He can consider himself lucky to have fallen into the hands of the police before serious   damage resulted, and a fine of 10s, with the alternative of four day's imprisonment, was none too heavy a penalty for an offence which might have resulted in a serious accident. Marshall Tarre, who was found drunk in Argent-street, but was not troublesome, was fined 5s or 48 hours imprisonment. Bryan Kennedy was     drunk in Argent-street and behaved indecently. He attributed the latter     offence to an uncontrollable natural impulse. The bench remarked that a person subject to that sort of thing should be especially careful, and imposed a fine...

Through the Western Country. A POLITICAL TOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 4 April 1889

Through the Western Country. A POLITICAL TOUR. ABOUT two months ago our special correspondent left Broken Hill for Mount Brown and district, in order to present to the electors the views of the then protectionist candidate for the suffrages   of the Sturt electorate. As many MINER readers who are deeply interested in the welfare of the district as a whole have never been over the Mount Brown track, a brief description of the country will be interesting. The first stopping place on   the road was Albion Town. Here a well attended and enthusiastic meeting was   held in Quinn's Hotel, with the genial host in the chair, and the audience was unanimously in favor of protectionist principles. Mr. Crossing, who has erected the tindressing plant at Albion Town, was present. He and those associated with him in placing the machinery upon the ground are much to be commended. Judg- ing from the conversation I had with Mr. Crossing, my knowledge of the tin l...

A King of the Rollers. LAST night, afc fche^Crystal Skating.Rink, Professor. Agiloman-that is to say; Aginton-made his debut and gave a very fine exhibition, of fancy skating. He ac- complished the most difficult feats with ease, dancVd'.on his^itoes^describad;. in- volved figurés with Eis heels/and waltzed and whistled about over the spacious floor as if to the manner born. It is very clear that the professor is perfectly,at home on théltreacherous rollers^- and {frequent and hearty applause burst from the large body of 'spectators present at his feats of agility. After an interval of retirement he came forth again in the character or a dude who is learning to skate. The learner was re- presented to be much embarrassed with a wonderful masher hat, which would keep falling off, and which he found great difiBculty each time in regaining. He also carried a dainty cane in one hand and a ;fan"inthe other. The professor-sprawled and fell about to the huge amusement of ;the spectators, an...

Women's Suffrage. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BARRIER MINER. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 4 April 1889

Women's Suffrage. TO TÍUS EDITOR OT THE BABBIEK MIXER. Sm,-Will you allow me to make a few comments on the principal topic of the day. We are living in the age of reason and politics, and it appears to me . a certain class of people are not satisfied, with the free «onstitution of manhood suffrage which we now enjoy. There are certain, reverend gentlemen advocating, female suffrage. Now, sir, what are their motives for this great revolution . In the .(Government of- states' and empires, I think that manhood suffrage wUl meet and has met all requwements, as far as constitution ¥hd liberty" gb"; hut I am inclined to think that these gentlemen are something like the silversmith of old. Their craft is in danger unless female suffrage ^cornés ' Undoubtedly it will ~ stem the tide of democracy for another 'century, ? but, in spite of their puny'¡efforts, democracy will stiU assert itself vwhen kingdoms. and empires "have crumbled into dust," although female influence, for a shortf, 'yea a...

Things We See. [BY SMILER.] [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 4 April 1889

Things We See. [BY SMIEEK.I "Say, Mr. Smiler, do you play billiards ?" "Notan artist, my friend; but'I can tell a cue from a firestick." T " Well, that's more; than some people can do, anyway. ' Just come over to. Beach's, and see some of those strolling players perform." I went. I saw a young-old man, in a superfine suit of rusty black, whose clean Bhaven face reminded me of a white- washed wall. He was playing billiards, though I shouldn't have known it had I not been told so by my friend. The player walked up to the table ard eyed the balls as if they were part of a square meal to which he had been a stranger for at least a week. Then he looked at his cue, much as a young lawyer looks at his i first brief, for he did not barely know ! which end of it to handle. Then he adjusted one shining, well-oiled curl that waved gracefully down his massive fore- head, and, after balancing his body gracefully on a well-poised toe, he plunged the cue forward and-failed to scoie. Then he drew h...

Rains in South Australia. ADELAIDE, Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 4 April 1889

Rains in South Australia.         ADELAIDE, Thursday. Heavy rains have continued to fall in various parts of the colony since yesterday, especially at Saddleworth, a northern town, the streets of which were flooded three times in 13 hours, owing to freshets bursting over the banks of the river Gilbert. The districts further north, such as Wilson and Hawker, continue to complain of drought. LATER.       Every bridge over the River Light, except the railway bridge, has been washed away by the late floods. A depu- tation has asked the Treasurer to grant assistance to effect necessary repairs. Mr. Playford replied that he could not, as there were no available funds.

Theatre Royal. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 5 April 1889

Theatre Royal. THERE was a much better attendance at the Theatre Royal last evening than on the occasion of the previous performance of ( Mr. Travers-Vale's drama, "The Artist." Possibly this is because of the evident pleasure with which the piece was received on Wednesday evening, and last night's production showed;, the ¿ company , off to even better advantage than-before; Special mention must again be made of Mr. Musgrave's most capable acting in the part of the artist's trusted and faith- ful servant, friend and adviser, Robert Airdslie. ; But throughout there were evidences of ;: no small talent , and very careful preparation. Beyond the fact that Mr. Matthews, the Jewish money* lender, might be much improved upon, there cannot be said to be a decidedly weak point in the whole. For to-night an excellent miscellaneous programme is billed.
