On the Slide. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 13 April 1889
On the Slide. Ai the Crystal Skating Bink last night Mr. Nestdale, the instructor, repeated the feat of sliding down an inch ned plane from the roof beams at one end of the' hall to the floor at the other. Just after starting he has to ¿i duck" ander a beam, and the difficulty (if to r esume the upright from stooping "posture. . In this respect I he ia apparently t&t iso practised aa Pro ! fessor Agintón,'*w^b ^introduced this feat , to local notice last week. Directly the 'professor passed; under the , beam he .stood Upright' andi performed^ the rest of his descent " in a standing, position without any anxiety visible on his countenance Mr- Nestdale, on the con- trary, appears to have a lively Bense of danger, and this, no doubt, is due to some extent to. the fact that a day or two ago, while performing this feat, he came a " regular, cropper "; near the end of the slide, but, fortunately, without damage to his person. The gathering of spectators last evening was smaller th...

Scarcely Honest. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 13 April 1889
Scarcely Honest. IN June last an article on " Spielers " by 1 " Smiler " appeared in the MINIE. This I was considered good enough by -the ¡Brisbane Fiijaro to republish,' which course it a few d»ya ag-) pursued. Only it forgot to go about it in a manly fashion. Tho Figaro people altored the article a trifle, and published it as their own original production ; tho Sydney Heferec, the premier sporting paper of Australia, gave them considerable praise for the article. "Smiler," who, of course, recognised his own offspring at once'wrote to the Beferec and ; sent along the original article on "Spielers," and the following clipping will explain the result : -"Under thu heading we (Sydney Referee) published-an article reprinted from the Queensland F:garo. Since do- ing so we have received a letter from a scribe who writes under the norn dc plume " Smiler," and is attached to the staff of the BARBIER MINEB, published at Broken Hill, enclosing the original sketch, which I he alleges was writ...

The Truckers* Grievance. _D(|apîa"tB& pàstfèwl days we;havé ire 'ceived a large number of communica- tions deaHng,n br - purporting to deal, with the truckers' grievances, but all in reality replying to the letters whLh , have appeared from "W.M.M."

New Gold Rush. [BY TELEGRAPH]. (FROM OUR OWN REPORTER). PURNAMOOTA, Saturday. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 13 April 1889
New Gold Rush. [BY TELEGRAPH]; (FROM'OUR OW1T REPORTER). PURNAMOOTA; Saturday. I T here is nothing very startling to report respecting the new gold find. . A large number of visitors from Broken Hill and Silverton visited the locality yesterday, but generally they were disappointed. The spot where the nugget was found by Mr. Davis is about 2i miles from the Golden OreBt mine, and on the Golden Crest run of country, about 6^ miles north of the Purnamoota township. There is nothing to warrant a rush. Gold was found here about two years ago, it is said by Mr. G. Clark ; and, although the coun- try has been passed over several times since then by competent prospectors, nothing else appears to have been found. The party to which Mr. Clark, the finder of the nugget, belonged, consisted of six, including Clark and Ned Saunders. They had a spar deposit near by, and were, they say, prospecting on and near this when the nugget was found several weeks ago. It would not appear, however, that th...
Probable Ministerial Visit. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 13 April 1889
Probable Ministerial Visit. IT ia regarded in Sydney as virtually, settled that \ Mr. Brunker, the -Minister for, Lands,;will visit, the .-.western part :of the colony'during the next Parliamentary recess, which is expected to eventuate in about a couple of months time. Mr Brunker has already, visited Bourke, but is desirous of proceeding into the pastoral "country as . far as Wücannia. , Barrier people' in Sydney think it most likely that, the. Minister will come on from Wilcannia through Broken Hill 'and thence to Adelaide, rather than , retrace his way across the railwayless western country. , There is no Ministerial visitor more worthy of ' a ~ welcome ' than. Mr. Brunker, ' against whose political' career even his enemies can say very little indeed^
THE PURNAMOOTA FIND. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 13 April 1889
THE PURNAMOOTAFIND. OWING to reports of alluvial gold1having' been found in the neighborhood of Purna- moota by a party of prospectors (writes our Silverton rèporter),and, as some of the nuggets were shown in the town, consider- able excitement has been created in Silverton. On Friday Beveral parties were formed and might be seen in. buggies and- other conveyances making their way towards the scene of the find, fortified with miners' rights, stores,' «fcc. Whether thè i information 'to- hand warrants ' those going to this new Eldorado is very ques- tionable. It - is 1 to be hoped, however, that something really valuable will be föundj which will give > "an additional impetus to mining all over this field.
AN INTERVIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 13 April 1889
AN INTERVIEW. - Thia morning Mr. E. H. Saunders, who is one of the prospectors,, was interviewed -by a MmEB reporter. ** There are six in óurfpartyi" he sáid^ V and we fnaye^béen engaged .for several months working on a calcite deposit we have near by. We had our tent not far from where Davis, who is one bf dur party, found the nugget. That, was several weeks ago ; but as we were very busy . with - the - calcite we deferred saying anything about the gold just then. Indeed, we would not have made any furs about it now ; but we thought, it better to report it. when we had the chance. : Very exaggerated statements respecting the amount of gold we had got have been cit ciliated. Besides the 4£ oz. nugget which Davis found we have only obtained a few small pieces. It is magnificent country, how- ever, and we intend giving it at least a three months trial." In reply to other questions, 'Mr. .Saunders, was certain that'Davis found the saTmplèr "It was a genuine discovery, of : that he was ...
