ALPHA RACES. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 23 August 1892
ALPHA RACES. THE races passed off very quietly. There was a fair attendance, consisting mostly of bookmakers and the usual professionals who visit the racecourse. The spielers' tables, &c, wero plentiful, but the players were scarce, and I do not think the owners of the figured cloths took much money away from Alpha. Tho fields for the Maiden Plate and Hack Race were fair, and the racing also, but in thc other events thc fields were poor, and the winners got home in the easiest manner. Thc following is a resume of the racing: MAIDEN PLATE, of 6 sovs. 1 mile, W.f.a. I Mr. A. J. Jackson's cm Ada, 8-2 (J. Davey) 1 M. Klein's g g Logic, 8-12 (P. Anderson) 2 B.

Hie American Strikes. Battles & Bloodshed In Tennessee. [BY GABLE.] FBOM ODS OWN COBBESPONDENT. LONDON, Thursday. NEWS has been received of fighting having taken place at the Olive Springs, Tennessee. It appears that 700 miners demanded the re lease of some convicts that were working in the mines, but that their request not being compiled with, the miners assumed a threaten ing attitude, and «oldiers to the number of 25, in charge of the prisoners, barricaded them selves, and were ordered to shoot low if violence were attempted. The miners bent on releasing the men, rushed the barricades. Orders were then given to fire, and a dis charge of musketry resulted in five of the rioters being killed, and in a large number of wounded. The miners again attacked the soldiers, and further fatalities resulted. At tention was then directed to the railway line, the rails of which were destroyed by the miners to delay the arrival of reinforcements. The Governor of the state is meditating w...

A Day Among Minerals. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 23 August 1892
A Day Among Minerals. MANY months must now have elapsed since a party of business people in Blackall formed a syndicate for the purpose of enriching its members by developing certain resources of the country outside their own particular dis trict. The money was subscribed to fit out a prospecting party to search for precious metals in the country about Listowel, where it was always rumoured that deposits of silver ore existed in quantities awaiting only the pick of the miner to bring them to thc surface. The result of operations in this direction wus not satisfactory, and subsequently tho syndicate was enabled to raise money to ex tend its operations in quite a different direc tion. This time the locality selected was in the vicinity of Withersfield in the direction of the old Emerald-Blackall road, and close to a chain of ranges of which Mount Pleasant is one of tho peaks. Tho syndicate employed a party of miners to thoroughly prospect the locality, with the result that some extens...
