The Junction. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 7 March 1889
The Junction. FROM information gleaned this morning in reference to the above mine, prepara- tions were being made to get steam up, and it is anticipated that work at the 300ft. level will be proceeded with to- morrow, by which time the water will have been baled out of the drive. Ac- cording to Manager Jolly's statement, the influx of water was insignificant, and as hitherto the North mine has drained the Junction, it is quite possible that the re- ports which reached Adelaide and were circulated from mouth to mouth here may have been exaggerated. The Adelaide Advertiser, which is usually well informed regarding the claims along the main line, stated that the mine was shut down and the 300ft. level flooded. As a matter of fact, operations at the higher level were never discontinued. When work was stopped last Saturday to permit of the blowing-off of the boiler, it appeared that the lode was gradually widening towards the north, and observations made in the winze from the 200ft. lev...
The L. V. Races. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 7 March 1889
The L. V.Races. WITH reference to a paragraph which appeared in yesterday's MINER, regarding &nbsp; the non issue of a balance sheet showing the receipts and expenditure in connection with the recent Licensed Victuallers' Race Meeting, Mr. Solomon states that, seeing &nbsp; that the meeting was only promoted and subscribed to by about 13 persons, it was not deemed necessary to present a balance sheet to others besides these. This has &nbsp; been done ; and, as the result, it was determined to vote £10 to the hospital. This amount, Mr. Solomon admits, has not been yet paid over, but it will be a soon as ever £10 10s, which was lodged with the -Broken Hill Jockey Club to make good any injury which might be done to the course, is paid over to him.
Captain Eddy. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 7 March 1889
Captain Eddy. IT is understood that, in consequence of remarks made at the last meeting of share- holders reflecting upon him, Captain Eddy, the manager of the Eaglehawk mine, has formally requested the Mine Managers' Association, Barrier branch, to nominate three members to visit and inspect the property. It will be remem- bered that, at the shareholders meeting held in Melbourne, it was alleged that Captain Eddy had furnished unwarranted &nbsp; reports upon the mine ; and, such being the case, the manager has very properly asked that he should be judged by three practical men of his own profession.
STRAY NOTES. SMELTER HANDS SUNDAY WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 7 March 1889
STRAY NOTES. &nbsp; SMELTER HANDS SUNDAY WORK. CONSIDERABLE interest is being taken &nbsp; amongst members of the Miners' Associa- tion in regard to the discussion which took place at the last meeting of the Broken Hill branch respecting surface- men's Sunday time. The consensus of opinion seems to be that the hours of such men should be reduced, but at the same time the opinion of the meeting, that the matter of moving for a reduction be de- ferred for the present, appears to meet with the support of those members who were not present on Tuesday night. The question has also risen whether or not the hours of labor on Sundays of men employed about the smelters should also be considered. It is absolutely certain that the manage- ment of the Proprietary will not consent to a reduction in the actual hours of labor on Sundays of the smelter hands, for, seeing that it is improbable in the very extreme that the furnaces will be shut down for even an hour on Sundays, it foll...
In the Wrong House. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 7 March 1889
In the Wrong House. PIERCE CROAK proceeded against Denis Trinidad this afternoon for breaking and entering. Complainant is a teamster living in Wolfram-street, and accused &nbsp; lives near. The two quarrelled some &nbsp; &nbsp; time since, and, according to complainant's, evidence, half an hour after midnight on Saturday he found accused in his bedroom. His wife and three children were in the house at the time, and the entrances had been secured. Accused burst open the &nbsp; to get in, and the fastening was &nbsp; carried away. John Croak corroborated. In his own defence, defendant said he went to complainant's house and inquired where the Government school was. The night was very dark, but complainant's door was open and a light was burning inside. He knocked at the door, and complainant told him to clear out. The bench considered a prima facie case made out, and committed the defendant for trial. He was allowed bail, self in £40 and two su...
Irishmen in Court. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 7 March 1889
Irishmen in Court. At the last meeting of the Irish National League, a disturbance took place which resulted in a summons issuing by Patrick McMullen against Michael J. Elwood for smiting the former on the head with a stick. The case was heard this afternoon. Mr. Raymond appeared for the com- plainant, and Mr. Abbott for the defence. A plea of guilty under provocation was entered. Complainant stated that when he was addressing the chair at Mon- day's meeting he was interrupted in an insulting manner by defendant. As the latter passed him on his way towards the door immediately afterwards, he took defendant by the coat and invited him to come and settle the matter outside. Thereupon defendant struck him upon the head with a thick stick. Defendant was sworn, and admitted that he struck the blow, but it was only to release himself from the grasp of a far stronger man, who had threatened to kill him. The bench decided that there had been provocation, but as the defendant had begun the q...
RUSSIAN RAILWAY ACCIDENT. LONDON, Wednesday. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 7 March 1889
RUSSIAN RAILWAY ACCIDENT. LONDON, Wednesday. &nbsp; The Russian Government have been assiduously pursuing their inquiries into the railway disaster at Borka, in &nbsp; the Crimea, in October last, when a train, carrying the Czar, his family and his suite, ran off the line as the party were breakfasting, smashing the carriages and resulting in an almost miraculous escape. It is suspected &nbsp; &nbsp; that this was not an ordinary railway accident, but a Nihilist plot ; and in &nbsp; consequence of this an indictment has been filed against Admiral Possief, the Minister of Ways and Communi- cations, and M. St. Jereval, the In- &nbsp; spector of Railways, to appear before the courts as being implicated.
The Naval Depot. SYDNEY, Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 7 March 1889

Admiral Fairfax complains that the conditions of exchange of various lands in Sydney for Garden Island as the naval depot of the Australian squadron are unfulfilled, and threatens to move his head quarters to another colony. Mr. Dibbs has promised to immediately give orders for the speedy carrying out of the works necessary for the fulfilment of the contract.
