Punctual to the fixed hour of ten o'clock, Mr. Justice Stephen, escorted by Mr. Edgar, his associate, arrived at the door, hut it evidently took a long time for the judge to habilitate himself in the traditional scarlet robes.

Weather in Silverton. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 16 April 1889
Weather in Silverton. . RAIN began to fall somewhat unexpectedly : early on Monday morning and continued more or less heavily throughout the day. It ceased in the evening, but may re- commence at any moment, as the' sky is still heavily laden with water clouds. The creek has been running strongly. Only one accident has been reported. While Mr. Bishop, with a horse and dray, was crossing the creek on the main road at the end of Bourke-street, the current was so strong as to capsize the dray, throwing Mr. Bishop into the water. Happily, however, he suffered no more harm than a severe ducking, and the horse and dray were afterwards landed in safety.' It has been considered risky to cross at this part while the creek is running, and it will be remembered that only a short time since, two individuals nearly forfeited their lives while attempting the feat. Searle yesterday challenged Teenier and O'Connor to row for the champion- ship of the world on ¡the Thames for any amount. The lamest ...

The Truckers' Grievance. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BARRIER MINER. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 16 April 1889
The Truckers* Grievance. TO THE EDITOR OW THE BARE 1ER JUNEE. SIB,-While I have no desire to prolong I this controversy, yet in its present sta*« it is far from satisfactory. I think that W.BÍ.M" ia in honor bound as a gen- tleman either to accept my statements on the wages question as true, or prove them untrue. I again assert that truckers' wages are higher in Queensland than on i the Barrier ; in fact, truckers are paid at the rate of 14s per week more in Charters Towers than they are in Broken Hill. It is made up in this way :-Truckers receive 10s per day, and Saturdays they receive 10s for four hours' work. A large number of the miners on this field think that " W.M.M.s" false statement on the wages question the worst part of his now notor- ious letter ; and the miners think that "W.M.M." is bound to prove his state- ment, or acknowledge that it is untrue. Mr. Editor, I think you will agree with me in the stand I had taken rc the wages question. "W.MM." claims to be a miner ; t...
