The Samoan Fleet. SYDNEY,, Monday. " The; Olga arrived from. Samoa on .Saturday, escorted by .the steamer .Lubeck. Upon being floated off it was ' found-.that the damage done was not . .sufficient to preclude her from under . taking an opean voyage. The captain saya that when the hurricane arose he I would have steamed out to Bea the same as the Calliope had done had not the rudder of his ship become damaged - through collision with the Eber. He, therefore, beached her on a sandy place in the Apia Harbor. The Nipsio has also been floated. She was severely damaged/ and is now only fit to be used as a hulk.

Hicks' Minstrels. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 15 April 1889
Hicks' Minstrels. TUB management of the Theatre Royal do not intend to keep that place of amuse- ment cloned very long at a stretch, al- though the miserable attendances at soma of the more recent performances have almost been disheartening enough to determine the-proprietor to board up the doora and windows of the whole concern. The Travers-Vale Company concludes the present dramatic season' on Thursday niaht next, and on Saturday, the Hicks. "Colored Minstrels will open -forià short season. This company is a large one, and has worked long together, sp th&t'jts per- formances are always yery' entertaining.

Sunday Concert. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 15 April 1889
Sunday Concert WITH the return of winter, Sunday con- certs have been again inaugurated in Broken Hill, the first for 1889 having been conducted last night in the Theatre Royal by the Travers-Vale Company. The attendance was only moderate. The programme was an interesting and varied one ; indeed, it is not 'at all certain whether the company does not appear to better advantage in a miscellaneous con- cert programme than in a strictlydramatic performance. Miss Lena Salinger has an excellent voice, which she made fair use of in two vocal Selections ;" Mr. Coughlan also contributed two songs. Mr. Herbert Salinger produced his violin and per- formed' a number. But nothing was better than Mr. J. B. Fitzgeralds two elocutionary efforts, the first " Becalmed,", the second " The Water Mil!/'

The South Mine. SPLENDID DEVELOPMENTS. (BY OUR MINING REPORTER.) FOR soine considerable time there have been many contradictory statementfl afloat in regard to the South'min^V'Some bfj, the critics have not sorapled to'condemn* the property in toto, while others have confined themselves to writing disparag- ingly of the manager and all his works, asserting that: under> the present regime the mine is- little better than a rabbit burrow and would.notf pay a dividend in a century. Others, again, ladled the blame out freely upon the directors; and abuse has not been .wanting recently for most of the officers in charge of the property. It has been freely-stated that an amount of almost unparalleled extravagance has been indulged in, though where and how in this particular mine is a conundrum I would greatly, like to see one of these critics solve. Wishing to set this matter at rest for all time, I have gone through every hole and been in every corner of the claim, and measured accurat...
