Amongst the Mines. (BY OUR MINING REPORTER.) THE SOUTH. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 6 March 1889
Amongst the Mines. &nbsp; [By our Mining Reporter.] THE SOUTH. &nbsp; THE South Broken Hill mine is one that must command considerable attention from all of those who are in any way connected with silver mining upon the Barrier Ranges. In my opinion it is a splendid property, and one that must ultimately force its way to the front, even amongst such properties as the Proprietary, British, Block 14, and the North ; for it &nbsp; is a wonder. And I am very pleased that the shares are held by Australians, for I am not one of those who believe in letting our best mines get into the hands of over-gorged English capitalists. For my part, I shall bitterly regret the day when the best claims on the Barrier fall into English hands, for that means actual poverty for Australia. There is one thing that is greatly needed at the South mine, and I would recommend the manager to bring it very forcibly before his directors. I refer to the want of a smelter on the mine. &a...

The Gun Went Off. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 6 March 1889
The Gun Went Off. &nbsp; A YOUNG man named William Hurrell was presented at the police court this morning before Mr. G. H. Gower, P.M., charged with the larceny of a double- barrelled gun,value of £20, the property &nbsp; &nbsp; of William Moorhoose, of Mossgeil. Con- stable Nolan related the circumstances connected with the arrest of the accused who had been "wanted" since February 19. The police had " shadowed" their man since his arrival in Broken Hill from Wilcannia until they were in receipt of the necessary warrant. The accused had admitted that his name was William Hurrell, and the constable asked for a remand to Mossgeil. Sargeant Saunders, in reply to the police magistrate, objected to the accrued being enlarged on bail, on &nbsp; the ground that he was a "slippery customer," who had been anxiously looked for during the last few weeks. The prisoner had only been released from gaol in January, after serving sentence of six months. The remand a...

A Zealous Lawyer. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 6 March 1889
A Zealous Lawyer. A slight passage of arms took place in the Warden's Court this morning during the hearing of the case of Linton v. Dela- &nbsp; more. Mr. Gower had signified his &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; intention of dismissing the case on the ground that the summons did not &nbsp; properly state the cause of action, when Mr. Welsh, who appeared on behalf of the plaintiff, ejaculated in a rather &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; excited manner, "I demand that your worship should proceed with the case." Mr. Julian smiled sardonically as he said, "Oh, come now, this is a bit of bounce." Mr. Gower, addressing Mr. Welsh, said that he could demand nothing, and that he (the warden) would certainly do as he thought fit. Mr. Welsh in a much more moderate tone then asked that the case might be proceeded with, but the warden was inexorable. Mr. Welsh asked that a &nbsp; note might be made of his objection, to whichMr. Gower acceded, and ...

A.M. A. Accident Pay. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 6 March 1889
A. M. A. Accident Pay. At last night's meeting of the Barrier branch of the Miners' Association, the secretary (Mr. T. H. Winnett), laid on the table, on the motion of Mr. T. T. Hicks, a statement showing what members had, during the preceding three months, re- ceived accident pay, and the amounts dis- bursed in each case. Altogether, it would appear, 34 members received the accident pay, which is, in the Barrier branch, £2 per week. In the majority of cases the individual disbursements have not amounted to more than £3 ; but in a few cases men have been laid aside for some time. Thus the grand total of accident pay amounts to £188. The unfortunate members who have received the greatest benefit during the quarter were E. Corner, who for over 10 weeks was on the books through injury to body and leg, resulting from a fall down a ladder; J. Trindad, who had his collar-bone broken at Umber- umberka, and was 13 weeks out in conse- quence; and James Dowbe, whom a stone injured, by strikin...

The Royal Commission appointed to &nbsp; inquire into the charges of bribery, &c., in connection with Parkes' tramway leasing scheme, brought by Mr. J. Haynes, M.L.A., against various parties, in its report says :-" The insinu- ations against the honor and good faith of members of Parliament and others appear to have arisen from rumors and suspicions which we believe were unjustifiable and totally unsupported by facts. The charges of bribery and dishonesty made during de- bates in the Assembly cannot be sustained. In regard to the special accusation made by Mr. Jno. Haynes MP. against Mr. T. S. Huntley, Mr. Haynes has failed to satisfy us that a bribe was offered to him by Huntley.
