Early Closing Association. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 5 March 1889
Early Closing Association. A MEETING of this body was held in &nbsp; Cummins' Theatre Royal Hotel last &nbsp; night. Mr. Plant was voted to the chair, in the absence of the president and vice-president. After the usual formality of reading and passing the minutes of the last meeting, a letter was read from the secretary of the Hibernian Society asking for the support of the institution for the general acceptance of St. Patrick's Day as a holiday. It was resolved that a member of the society wait upon the various retail establishments to push the views of the meeting. It was then carried that a sub-committee be appointed to arrange dates of annual holidays. A &nbsp; complaint was lodged that a certain store in Argent-street kept open after hours after signing the agreement to close at 6 p.m. The secretary was instructed to write to the firm on the subject. An alarm of fire here put a premarture end to the meeting. &nbsp;
The Water Supply. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 5 March 1889
The Water Supply. A special meeting of 'the municipal council is to be held to-morrow night, when the question of water supply will be discussed. It is by no means certain &nbsp; what powers the council have in this matter ; and it is very probable, from the present aspect of affairs, that the meeting will end in nothing of practical nature. It is understood, however, it will be proposed that the council take steps to construct their own waterworks. A reference to the Act now in existence will show that they can hardly work under &nbsp; that, and, this being the case, if they are determined to themselves carry out water- works, it is more than probable they will have to secure the passage of a private &nbsp; bill. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;

The All Stars. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 5 March 1889
The All Stars. &nbsp; THE company made its bow to a good house last night, and succeeded in keeping the audience, in excellent humor for a couple of hours. Duriah was in fine form and did a great deal of the work. Miss Hazelwood was as popular as ever, while all the other lady members of the com- pany had to submit to encores. A good &nbsp; performance is promised for to-night.

Baker's Creek Mine. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 5 March 1889
Baker's Creek Mine. ANOTHER magnificent crushing from the Baker's' Creek gold mine, near Hillgrove, in this colony, is reported by the secretary, whose office is in Adelaide, where most of the shares are held. The manager cleaned up, for less than a fortnight, 1590oz gold from 105 tons of stone, taken from Smith's reef. This stone averages over 10oz to the ton. The mine manager further telegraphs " Mine looking splen- did." And yet this is the property which Sydney and Melbourne investors refused a few months ago. &nbsp;
A Pleasing Sight [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 5 March 1889
A Pleasing Sight . IN this barren part of the earth the sight of flowers and natural verdure are most &nbsp; &nbsp; refreshing to the eye, wearied with look- ing out upon an all-surrounding expanse of sand. A love of the sweet things of nature is implanted in every rightly con- stituted disposition ; and no doubt as time advances and the energy of the people of this locality reaches to the pitch of obtaining a proper water supply, grass, shrubs, and flowers will become less of &nbsp; such rarities than they are at present in and about Broken Hill. Meanwhile the resi- dents of this town must be thankful for small mercies ; and one of these mercies is afforded by the window of the local fruiterer and florist. The display of Mr. E. J. J. Howell, whose shops adjoins Elliott's Hotel, calls for particular at- tention. He has been enterprising enough to procure from the well-known model nursery of Newman, of Adelaide, a select- ion of plants in pots which are on vie...

Sullivan and O'Donnell, respectively the president and secretary of the &nbsp; Hibernian Society. A lengthy discussion then took place regarding the anticipated visit of Messrs. Dillon, Esmonde, and Deasy to Australia. It was resolved to form a large and represent- ative committee of reception. It was determined enthusiastically that a congratulatory cablegram be sent to Mr. Charles Stuart Parnell on the failure of the prosecution of Parnell by the Times.

Non Compos Mentis. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 5 March 1889
Non Compos Mentis. HENRY BURNS, an old man evidently out of his mind, was brought up before Mr. Butterworth, J. P , this morning for his own protection. Constable Grieve found him wandering about the South mine with his trousers over his feet and his pockets full of stones. He was picking up ore saying it was gold and appeared to- be wandering in his mind. He was arrested and brought to the police station. Sergeant Saunders stated that he had known the man three months, and that he had been found by the police twice apparently dying. He was taken to the hospital on Saturday and ran away on Sunday. After about a week's detention he seems to get all right and then goes about exposing himself and taking no food. The observations which the accused let drop in court pointed to lunacy. He was committed to Silverton gaol for 30 days.
