SHOOTS OF ORE (Continued). [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 18 August 1894

SHOOTS OF ORE (Contenued) [BV OUR RfcPPESENTATlVE.] Montana. — With Mr. John Crase I had a good look through the mine, and as the following notes will show, that gentle man has one of the most difficult problems to solve in the management ; but ho is quite equal' to (he occasion, being a practical miner, an educated and obser vant man, and is not like Home of our other highly paid managers — a man of theory (in the air), but when anything in his mine wants doing, he is there in person, and directs himself. Moreover, lie is his own underground boss, and the work that has been done both on the surface, in the shaft, and mine is of a character that is as. -near perfection as is possible. I may say that I have visited many mines, but the good cha racter and economic manner in which Crase has carried out his work surpasses them all, and what apparently seems heavy timber to some people is infinitely cheaper and (jafer in the long run. On entering a cage In the 14ft. long by 5ft. wide sha...

HOBAET MUTUAL PEOVIDENT SOCIETY. Dear Clippee, — I cravo space in your columns to bring under the notice of the shareholders in the above Society the injustice they are allowing to be perpe trated by the Directors in submitting to the misappropriation of the interest earned in bolstering up an illegal reserve fund.

The fact of Carney being a stranger enticed a good audience to assemble to witness the evflnt many thinking it would furnish a very trood idea an to how Carney would shape with Clifford, in this they were doomed to disappointment as Jim was never ex tended and won easily in one round. Before the contest was called on Bodgers and Gallagher, and Dunahoo and Irish Joe furnished some exhibition sparring. Carney with Murphy and Brennan. and Miller had with him Clifford and Luke, entered the ring. THE CONTEST.

LETTERS OF S.A. TYER No. XXV. To VISCOUNT GORMASTON. K.C.M.G. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 18 August 1894

LETTERS of S.A. TYER To VISCOUNT GORMANSTON, K.C.M.G My Dear Jenico, - You are now owing to my good offices,rapidly gaining some knowledge of the early days of those colonies, and no   doubt fervently wish that you had the power to order a few of your mininions to be flogged occasionally   just to do them good. But unfortunately the good old times have gone by and some people have actually had the audacity to propose that we should do without a fine a fine old well preserved governor, whose   sole fault appeals to be that he does nothing for his salary. You will   of course treat the remarks, of such persons with silent contempt and go on "fishing" as usual ; but be aware lest you stick in the mud. I do not wish to weary you with floggings and executions, and will   therefore merely mention that on Oct 7th, 1788, a criminal court sentenced a, convict to 500 lashes for stealing soap the, property of another convict, val...

Shoots of Ore. Success and Owen Meredith.— The tri butore are about to put in a tramway to the mine from the road, as the track hat now become so bad that the ore cannot be packed out. If the present Govern ment are at all sincere in their desire to encourage mining, then why net lend sufficient old used iron rails to the tri butors on liberal terms, who will spend, in round figures, £500 on the tram f If the rails were required by the Govern ment, it would be quite a different matter, but how many tons of them are to be seen lying rusting »way in various parts of the colony ? Surely enough rails can be spared to lay about four miles of a tramway, and thus help to open up what is reported to be a large and valuable mineral field. Smith Section, McKay and party tri butor*. — Lode is about the same ae re* ported in last issue. About 00 tons ore, firsts and seconds, have been raised for one week's work, nearly half of which being firsts. Davern Bros.— Lode poor ; only raised a small qu...
