TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Pilbarra Goldfield News — 28 January 1898
TO THE EDITOR. Sm,—With regard to the letter which appeared in your issue of the 14th Jan., 'under the heading of 'Justice in the ' North West,' we should be glad if you would publish our emphatic denial of certain statements made therein. In the first place, although we trusted the individual who signs himself John 13rown and his partner, with goods on credit, we never took ativ legal steps against them to recover the money due to us. Where the idea originated, that we had applied for a warrant, ■We are utterly unable to say ; but it is extremely probable that it was involved by the same fertile Brain which produced the column and a half of falsehoods, which appeared in your issue of January 14. It is utterly superfluous for us ttr attertipt to criticise the condutt of a pair of men who admit that they cleared out with the intention of avoiding the people who trusted them; hut we are glad to state that our business experience has, happily, never before brought us into contact with ...

WARDEN'S COURT. THURSDAY, JANUARY 27. (Before Mr. Axel Ostlund. Warden.J. An application was male by Mr. F. j W. Shells for four months' exemption on leases 213, 214, and 215, situated at Western Shaw. Frederick W. Shells, appearing for the Imperial W. A. Corporation, sworn, ' said :—-[ am the attorney for the Imperial W.A. Corporation, Ltd., and I have posted the required notices for exemption. I have had exemption for these leases before; it had just expired. That exemption was granted to allow the directors time to laise funds. I have wired tne company re funds, and received a reply instructing rue to apply for further exemption pending the arrival of an expert, who is on his way out from England. The company sent me some money, but not sufficient to man the leases. The expert has been engaged to re.port on our properties, as the company has been grossly misled as to the value of the leases. The company has already spent £30,000 on the properties, and they do not intend to spend ...

THE WEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — The Pilbarra Goldfield News — 28 January 1898
. THE WEATHER. During the pa>t week, we have again been treated by a great change in the weather, and scarcely a day has escaped that the sky has not been o^erj cast, and the rays of • Old Sol ' hidden 'inongst the clouds. The thermometer has, not registered lOOdeg. in the shade since last Sunday, and 011 the whole it has been more like winter than summer, and was felt so by many people in town who came out iu their winter wardrobe and top-boots. On Sunday evening rain set in, and continued until Monday morning, when it ceased, but not for long, as on Monday evening it came down nice and steady, and set the town creek running, and the Coongan River was also filled to a banker. We learn that the water reached the Chinamens' gardens, wash ing away a few beds of vegetables and destroying several others more or less. Bet ween here and Condon the road is i very bad. and traffic has bi*en blocked | at the Gorge, where several teams have ! been stuck up. [ Although these rains may have ...

OfTK CRITICS CRITICISED. I The roflotfing, wrtfWn under the nom de plume of 'Traveller,' (Marble1 Bar), is taken from ' Clare's Weekly ' of tlie 55th DeC'clfrber- l " I can't endorse all that c Northern Buubury' says in regard to the uncalled-for waste of public money on public buildings in the insignificaut mining place called Marble Bar. The Government must surely have had some bidden reason for wastefully spending JE1?,000 on the present white elephant- comprising the post office, warden's court, and police quaiters, and the lather too palatial building that shelters the present foreign warden. The doctor's residence and hospital are, of course, a real necessity, and no one can cry out against tlieni. Marble Bar at present comprises, in popu/ation about 40 inhabitants, over a third of whom arc Government officials, one half Chinamen and Japs, and the balance is made up of a few miners waiting for work, and a few business people waiting to sell goods.

ADELAIDE S.S. COMPANY'S HALFYEARLY MEETING. Adelaide,. January 29. [Newspaper Article] — The Pilbarra Goldfield News — 4 February 1898
ADELAIDE S S. COMPANY'S HALFYEARLY MEETING. I Adelaide. January 29 ! The forty-fifth half-yearly meeting of [ the Adelaide Steamship Company was j held to-day. The Chairman speaking of : the W. A. trade, said :—'' Thia time last | year, I told you that we could not ! anticipate the volume of traffic existing, ' to be maintained. This forecast has l»een fully borne out, with the result that our earnings have increased considerably, but we are not singular in this Experience. A falling off in the traffic was-accompanied by a decrease in the rates, which is also due to the fact that the tonnage emp^-ed was much in excess of the trade requirements. Direct imports from Europe and Africa to W.A. had naturally inpreased considerably ; shipments from the Eastern colonies to W.A. being correspondingly reduced. The Company has been unfortunate in losing the steamer Lttbra, and the steamer Innamincka iiaobeeu | seriously damaged. This would make a difference in the year's earnings. The directo...
Victoria. THE RECENT FIRE. Melbourne, January 29. [Newspaper Article] — The Pilbarra Goldfield News — 4 February 1898
Victoria. - | THE KECKNT FIHE. j Mi-lbourno, January 29. The recent fire in Flinders st. was n heavy burden on the Victorian Insurance Company. At the half-yearly i meeting today, the Chairman stated j that the Company had lost between £30,000 and £40,000 through the fire, j The statement for the half-year snowed j a debit Italance of £15,888, and he did j not think the directors had ever had a j worse balance sheet to submit. Owing to the conservative iaction of the Com-1 pauy, in putting aside monies to meet disasters of this kind, it would be able to , pay, without making any calls, if it coBt: the country a million pounds. The brigades could not get appliances to cope with such fires, and a number of insurance companies had stopped doing business altogether, and were selling to other companies. However, he hoped the Company would shortly recoup itself.
