PADDJ GTON. NEW TREATMENT PLANT. Broad Arrow, Jan. 29. Signs of life are again visible about the old town of Paddington, which was once a munilcpality con taining half a dozen hotels, some sc·re or more of flourishing business concerns, and severr. fine Govern ment and public buildings.

THE MINING CONFERENCE. "Prospector," Kanowna, writes: -"Muc' dissatisfaction is voiced here.at the attitude of the Minister for Mines with regard to his pro posed conference, as the repeated postponements and the selection o representatives indicate that by no means is impartiality to be a lead ing feature. If anything further were wanting to confirm this opinion, there is the eloquent fact that the minister is providing free passes to the elect, but prospee!ors from the back blocks, to whom the magnates and State are indebted for the very industry itself, and all it stands for, are to be permitted: to attend at their own expense. A list of some 20 subjects has been submitted by the Miners' Union. almost entirely of a technical character outside the province of such a conference, but quite within the province of mining inspectors and the minister to deal with. " It is held that it would be far prefer able for a conference to meet at Kalgoorlie, there to discuss the various questions...
