Theatre Royal. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 5 March 1889
Theatre Royal. THE performance at the Theatre Royal last night was fair, but the attendance was almost nil. Under the circumstances, however, one could hardly expect the theatre would be patronised at all, no matter how good the show. The public are getting a trifle more particular than they use to be. There is no truth in the statement that to-night will be the last appearance of the companv in Broken Hill. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Rev. G.D. Buchanan, Cairns Memorial Church, East Melbourne, has accepted &nbsp; &nbsp; the pastorate of the Wickham Terrace Presbyterian Church, Brisbane.
Abandonment of Children. SYDNEY, Tuesday. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 5 March 1889
Abandonment of Children. SYDNEY,Tuesday. &nbsp; &nbsp; Kate Delory was arraigned at the &nbsp; &nbsp; Criminal Sittings yesterday on eight distinct charges of abandonment of chil- dren. Upon pleading guilty to the first charge, the plea was accepted. On seven other charges she was remanded to appear on Thursday next, to enable the police to institute in the meantime further enquiries. For some time it appears the &nbsp; prisoner has been subsisting solely on the proceeds of the fees obtained by her from people entrusting the children to her &nbsp; care. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;

Newmarket Sales. MELBOURNE, Tuesday. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 5 March 1889
Newmarket Sales. Melbourne, Tuesday. The Newmarket annual yearling sales commenced yesterday, when there was a large attendance. Sir Thomas Elder's Morphettville (S. A.) animals were the chief attraction, twenty three animals &nbsp; realising no less than 3,285 guineas. Mr. Blackler's animals also' sold well. There were thirteen in number, and brought 1930 guineas. The Victorian bred horses &nbsp; were sold at extremely low rates. Several of Neckersgat's progeny were disposed of.

Various Things. [BY SMILER.] [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 5 March 1889
Various Things. [BY SMILER.] I THOUGHT that at last the days of pug- ilism were over, when Charles Bathgate, of beloved memory, made such a gallant display of pugilistic prowess against Wil- liams. For I communed with my soul &nbsp; in this wise : Charlie smote his opponent with all his might, and when that other &nbsp; puncher dashed his ardor by hitting him on the body, the brave Charles turned up his toes and-slept. And what a howl &nbsp; was there, for those who paid to be com- &nbsp; forted ; and I, Smiler, not being a lover &nbsp; of the sinful game, rejoiced with exceeding &nbsp; &nbsp; great joy. I thought that those foolish people who went to see Charlie, their pride and their pet, wipe the floor with the sturdy Sydney boy were properly &nbsp; served. And yet it was sad to see the &nbsp; way the Barrier boy took his gruel ; there was sugar in the gruel too, oh Charles ! I have heard that he has gone to ...
The Barrier Chief. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 5 March 1889
The Barrier Chief. At a meeting of the Barrier Chief Silver- mining Company, held in Sydney, it was resolved to wind up the company volun- tarily.The company has still £12,500 of &nbsp; uncalled capital, but the prospect is not good enough to warrant making calls on the shareholders. The report states that, in October last, the influx of water became so heavy, and the expenditure to cope &nbsp; with same so large, that the directors decided on sending up a winding engine which would do all the necessary work without the expense of a pump; this machinery was got into position and started on December 19, but before any benefit could be reaped the company's cash in hand became exhausted, and the directors had reluctantly to apply for exemption from labor conditions, which exemption was granted on January 10, for three months. All hands were im- mediately discharged, and no mining has since been done on the property. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &...
Our Outside Mines. [By WIDEAWAKE.] [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 5 March 1889
Our Outside Mines. &nbsp; [By Widraware] &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Not many weeks ago I had a long con- versation with an English visitor, a man of financial experience and a thorough knowledge of business, which has &nbsp; impressed me with some ideas I feel impelled to put before the readers of the MINER. This gentleman I happened to know in England as a shrewd and success- ful financier, so I think that what he has to say about the Barrier and its prospects should have due consideration. He com- municated his views very freely to me, but when I asked him whether he would allow me to put them in print, he expressly stipulated that they should not be published until he had left the district and was about to return to England. The reason for this stipulation will appear. I have now received a letter from him from one of our parts stating that he is returning to England immediately, and I am therefore at liberty to publish what he tol...
Proposed Association. PRELIMINARY MEETING [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 5 March 1889
Proposed Association. PRELIMINARY MEETING A MEETING of engine-drivers and firemen was, according to advertisement, held in Roberts' kiosk last night, to consider the desirability of forming a local association for men of those trades. Mr. Dowie was &nbsp; voted to the chair, and Mr. Fergusson was appointed secretary pro tem. There was not a large attendance, and the pro- ceedings were not of a formal nature. They took a conversational term, and some difficulty was experienced in arriv- ing at a conclusion as to the basis of the proposed association. In the course of the discussion it was mentioned that there were fully 200 engine-drivers and firemen employed in the district. A proposition was made that the association be formed of these two classes of labor only ; and this having been seconded an amendment was moved that a Trades Union be formed, open to workers in all trades. Neither proposition nor counter proposition was put to the vote, and after some further debate, it ...

STRAY NOTES. SMOKE SERVICES. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 5 March 1889
STRAY NOTES. SMOKE SERVICES. &nbsp; IT has recently been suggested in Sydney, in fact several letters on the subject have appeared in the press, that divine services should be conducted, at which smoking may be indulged in. In many quarters &nbsp; &nbsp; the idea was ridiculed ; and that caustic publication, the Bulletin, devoted a page of extravaganza to illustrating what these smoke services might be and what they might lead to. These people are evidently &nbsp; under the impression that the idea is quite a new one, and that whatever may be done in regard to holding them will be purely experimental. They are wrong, however, for such services have been frequently conducted in America ; and now I read that none less than Dr. Parker, of the Temple, London, has commenced the practice. The doctor began by &nbsp; delivering a series of talks to workingmen, &nbsp; which he announced in the following manner :-" Working men, I intend the &...
Barrier Miner. TUESDAY, MARCH 5, 1889. Certificated Miners. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 5 March 1889
TUESDAY, MARCH 5, 1889. Certificated Miners. &nbsp; JUST now a great deal of attention is being bestowed upon the appliances adopted in mines to prevent accident &nbsp; overtaking the employés, and both Mr. Patton, the general manager of the Proprietary mine, and his subordinate officers have recently gone to some trouble to explain to visiting laymen what means are adopted, and to hear any suggestions for still further pro- tecting the lives and limbs of the &nbsp; &nbsp; miners and others engaged in and about the company's property. Of course it is only very natural that the managers of the mines should be very solicitous in this respect ; it would cer- tainly be opposed to their best interest to have numerous fatalities, or even accidents ending far less seriously, happening in the properties under their charge. Still some credit is due to them; for, though many cases of neg- lect on the part of managements have been unearthed, yet on the whole we ...
