West Australian Gold. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 6 March 1889

West Australian Gold. FOR some time past several miners of   Broken Hill have expressed their inten- tion of leaving at an early date for the West Australian goldfields, and a few have actually gone to the 'sleepy colony.' It will not, therefore, be cheering news for the friends of those who have left to learn that a telegram has been received in Adelaide from Mr. Charles Hardy, a com- petent man, having reference to the Pilburra and Egina fields, as follows:- " Warn miners against coming. Com- pletely worked out. Numbers leaving daily.

Theatre Royal. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 6 March 1889

      Theatre Royal. THE Theatre Royal was accorded better   patronage last evening, and the perform- ance was in many respects more excellent   than on the previous evening. Especi- ally pleasing were the songs, choruses,     and dances in the first portion of the   programme, and the finale by the whole company evoked hearty applause. In the second part the eccentricities of Messrs. Gilmore and Gardner, and the Irish absurdities of Mr. Dan Tracey, roused the risibility of the audience, which seemed to reach a culminating point when the sketch of "Nitro-glycerine " was pre- sented. A hearty laugh was, however, reserved for the concluding farce of "The   Coming Man," in which Nina Tulloch,   and Messrs. Fredericks, Gilmore and Gardner excelled themselves. The grace- ful dancing of Miss Aggie Atkinson re- ceived the meed of applause which it de- served, an...

Parliament THE MINISTRY DEFEATED. SYDNEY. Wednesday.       Mr. E. B. L. Dickens, member for Wil-   cannia, has taken the oath and his seat. Upon the commencement of business,   Mr. Dibbs, the Premier, in reply to a question, said that the Government had authorised the paying of the salaries of civil servants without parliamentary sanc- tion when Parliament was not in session, but they gave no such authorisation while the House was sitting. Consequently they did not intend to provide the salaries for last month. Mr. Garvan, the Treasurer, announced that the rerult of the recent examination showed the deficit at the end of December to be £4,064,747. The debate on the Address-in-Reply, to which Sir Henry Parkes had moved an amendment, was continued till a few minutes past 3 o'clock this morning.

The Fire at Bottrill's. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 6 March 1889

The Fire at Bottrill's. THE unfortunate man John Tregilgas Bottrill, who had his dwelling house burned to the ground on Monday night, is a greater sufferer than was at first thought; for, in addition to the loss of his building, cash to the value of £68, besides a quantity of clothing and furniture, was destroyed. Altogether Mr Bottrill has lost £150. There is a good cause to suspect incendiarism arism in this case; and the matter has been put in the hands of the police.

Stealing a Valuable Letter [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 7 March 1889

Stealing a Valuable Letter MARY ANN JONES, of the Pinnacles,   appeared with a baby in arms in the   Local Court this morning, in answer to a summons by the police, charging her with having stolen a letter containing a valuable security, the property of John   Thomas Bird of the Pinnacles. Sergeant Saunders stated that he laid the informa- tion on what he heard from the police at Wilmington (S.A.). Charles Hobbs Suckwell, storekeeper, of Wilmington S.A.), deposed that he posted a cheque for £10 to John Thomas Bird, at the   Pinnacles. When he saw the cheque again it had been altered. J. T. Bird stated that he boarded with Mrs. Jones, at the Pinnacles, and his parents reside at Wilmington (S. A.). The cheque for £10 was sent to him, but he never received it. He had authorised Mrs. Jones to get his letters at the post office, but not to open them. He had told Mrs. Jones he was expecting the money.     John W...

Worn-out Miners. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 7 March 1889

Worn-out Miners. DR. SISCA, the originator and promoter of the scheme for the establishment of the Worn-out Miners' Sustentation Fund, has written to a member of the local Miners' Association as follows :-" As you may by this time be aware, the scheme for the Worn-out Miners Sustentation Fund gave rise to a very animated discussion at the conference of the A. M. A. They were un-     animous in affirming the principle of the scheme, but the majority of the delegates had received instructions to vote- against the details as formulated by the executive ; and so it was that in the end the scheme was referred to the executive council; in order that the details may be so modified or altered as to meet with the approval of the various branches. This means a delay, the end of which nobody can say when it will come. I cannot say that I will go to Broken Hill to have the pleasure of hold-   ing a meeting there, but it all depends on the probabilities of ...

Yesterday's Fire. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 7 March 1889

Yesterday's Fire, Ax twenty minutes past five o'clock yesterday afternoon the alarm of fire was raised in Argent-street, and smoke was seen ascending from some buildings in the lane at the rear of Barnet Harris' Royal Exchange Hotel. It was soon discovered that an iron building, used by Mr. Eddy, as a carpenter's shop, was in flames. A large crowd quickly collected on the scene, the hour being one when   the streets are most frequented by promenaders. It was at once apparent that the building in which the fire origin- ated was doomed, and efforts were directed to saving the adjoining cottage, belonging to Mr. Barnet Harris. The   crowd went to work with a will, and soon had the contents of this tenement removed beyond danger of the flames. Upon the arrival of the fire brigade a stream of water was kept playing upon the point of junction. The burning building was also pulled down, and the spread of the   conflagration by these means was pre- ven...

Manager and Men. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 7 March 1889

Manager and Men. Four somewhat peculiar cases were heard at the Purnamoota Warden's Court on Saturday by Mr .G. H. Gower. It ap- pears that a few weeks ago the manager of the Black Prince mine received in- structions from his head office to suspend work at the property. In consequence of this, four men were immediately dis- charged. But the men's wages did not reach the mine for a week ; and, during this time, they alleged they could do nothing but wait about. They, therefore, sued the manager, Mr. F. E. Edwards, for this week's wages, together with certain damages. Although the manager was heartily defended by Mr. Welsh, Mr.   Gower decided in favor of the plaintiffs, who were awarded a week's pay, £3, and a guinea damages.

The Umberumberka Mine. REFERRING to the quantity of ore now being treated at the Umberumberka con- centrators, Mr. Dudley, the new mine manager, in his last report says during last week "the plant worked 66 hours, reduc- ing stock of seconds 195 tons, and I have dispatched E. and A Copper Company 24 tons of concentrates, 18 tons of fourth barrow, and 12 tons of slimes ; total 54 tons for the week=276 tons for the month, at the end of which I had to stop to renew roller-shells and some repairing; however, will start again next Monday. But owing to this I should have dispatched nearly 100 tons for the week instead of 54."
