HERR HEINCKE'S ORCHESTRA. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 9 November 1895
HERR HEINICKE'S ORCHESTRA. It is very gratifying to be able to record the continued and increasing popularity of the concerts given by Herr Heinicke's talented orchestra. The audience has been larger at each successive concert, and on Saturday evening the body of the Town Hall was quite incapable of accommodating the large crowd ot listeners, tne attendance Deing greater tnan at any preceding concert of the season. The beautiful music rendered by the orchestra ought to be sufficient to attract a packed house at every concert. Herr Heinicke lias 45 in strumentalists under his command, and they obey the baton with the utmo3t preci sion, so that the strains issue as if from one comprehensive instrument. Most conspicuous features of the orchestration are tho charming distribution of solo passages and the delightful combinations which are arranged by Herr Heinieke.

BASEBALL. GOODWOOD V. NORWOOD. These teams met tor the first time this season on the South Park Lands on Saturday, in the presence of aiore than a moderate attendance of spectators, and resulted in a win for the premiers by scoring 11 for eight innings to the Norwoods 4. The Goodwoods bad but a fairly representative nine, while the Nor woods were at a disadvantage owing to the absence ot Captain Ewers, who might have altered the result of the game. Good work at lirst base was equally divided by ireloar ana Lora lor their respective teams accepting all chances given them. The pitch . Ing on both sides was good, and Huston as catcher performed his work in a most efficient style. For the Goodwoods Polkinghorne, Stewart, and J. Power were the best with the bat, J.

CYCLING NOTES. Mr. McGann, of Leigh-street, has shown me a splen did photograph of a group of yiroiuinent cyclists, which he took with the fine lens he has just imported from England. '?? Zimmy' is in the centre, and the whole of the likenesses are brought out post faith fully. That Mr. McGann is a thorough artist is shown by the picturesque sjJots he always selects for his groups, and in the one before me he has picked out one of tne prettiest spots in me Jtfotamc uaraens. The photograph is a credit to Mr. McGann, who alto secured one of Zimmerman and Parsons before they ? left the colony. Mr. Zimmerman wag to have left by the Melbourne express on Tuesday week, but not being able to gain a berth in the boudoir car he had to postpone his departure till Wednesday. On arrival in Melbourne on Thursday he was seen by a Herald reporter, who writes thus:— 'Zimmerman doss not look well, nor does he feel in the best condition after his recent illness.

LEIGH'S CREEK COAL. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 9 November 1895
LEIGH'S CREEK COAL. TO THE EDITOR. Sir— Re the Leigh's Creek colliery. I should like to know what the directors are doing. Some time back great things were pro mised. 'Gold was nothing to it.' Why do we hear so little now ? I notice some time back that the railway authorities had a very satisfactory trial on the north line. How is JLt they do not use the coal and keep the money in the colony? The Commissioner stated they were altering a fire grate or something of the kind to Buit the coaL I think they must be makingan engine, tender, and carriages all on a new principle to suit the coal, judging by the time they are- ''-' taking about it. Some of the 'big bugs' must -have great interest in the New castle collieries, and that, I think, is where the shoe pinches. Working men should find out why our money is sent to pay labor in . other colonies when it can be spent here in employing the same labor, in raising the same article, or at least an article to suit the pur pose.— I am, &a...
CARTERS AT SAPPY VALLEY. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 9 November 1895
CARTERS AT HAPPY VALLEY, TO THE EDITOR. Sir— In your issue of the 29th ult. there appeared a paragraph emanating from the Commissioner of Public Works re Happy Valley. Injustice to the carters at Happy Valley it would be very wrong indeed to let that statement go unnoticed, as tho following will show : — A two-horse team is allotted piecework at a price that makes it possible to earn from 10s. Gd. to 13b. per day; average 12s ; a three-horse team from 12s. to a trifle over 15s. per day. It costs at tiie present time 20a. per week to feed each horse (proof available) and 6s. per day for a driver, leaving the owner 4s. a week in debt, and the owner of a three-horse team 12s. in debt. The Commissioner evidently does not look through the same glasses as the carters. He probably borrowed the resident engineer's glasses for that particular view. — I am, &c, ONE OF THEM.
THE LUX MINE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 9 November 1895
THE LUX MINE. TO TIIE EDITOR. Sir— In. reference to the report of the meeting of shareholders in the Lux Gold Mining Company which, appeared iu your paper of November 1, and which contained veiy serious charges against my brother. Captain It. Barkla, I have to state that niy brother is absent in West Australia and cannot therefore reply to the chai'STCS which are of so dnnuurinir a ohnrn^tor That he can successfully rebut them 1 am perfectly certain. Up to the time of his departure for the West my brother was in town every day but one day since he came down from the Lux mine and was quite pre pared to give all needful information. My object in writing is to ask the public to suspend their Judg ment till his return in a few weeks. I claim this in. the interest of fair play.— I am, &c., W. H. BAUKLA. Unley, November 2, 1895. ^ Sir— I see by your report of the half-yearly meeting of the Lux Gold Mining Company held on Thursday last you report me to have said— 'Mr. Caterer had m...
THE VICTORIA GOLD MINE. TO TUB EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 9 November 1895
THE VICTORIA GOLD MINE. TO TUB EDITOR. Sir—It-scctna to me that nil the available capital is going to West Australi i to work mines Uiere which are not so profitable as some I could name now lyintr idle ia South Australia for the want of a very small outlay to make them payable. 1 would name the Victoria pold mine, situated about two miles from Hahndorf, and owned by Mr. Joel Fry. The reet averages 9 ft. in width, carryins: eold the full lenirth of 120 ft. The geld is estimated to go half an ounce per ton. Four shatts have been sunk on the property, the deepest 140 ft. and the shallowest 70 ft. At the bottom of each shaft there is very rich quartz, which if worked would yield a good return to the share holders, as it can be raised for 6s. per ton. With my experience in mining I was surprised to find such a valuable property idle for the want of a little capital. I have no interest in writing other than to see the mineral resources o£ the colony developed.— I am, &c, OCULAR
