NULLAGINE. NULLAGINE, April 17. [Newspaper Article] — The Pilbarra Goldfield News — 30 April 1897
NULLA.GIXE. (feoii oub own cobbfspondent). ■N DI.LAGINE, April 17. All the mines controlled in London are in full swing, and good stone is now bring raised, which, when put through the battery, should, froni present ap pearanci-s, average well. Five leases owned by the North-West Australian Goldlields Corporation will be manned next week, thus giving em ployment to 25 men. A very appro priate exemplification of the capricious ways of Government heads of depart ments may be mentioned in connection with these leases, which, having been under exemption for some time, must have work resumed thereupon on Good Friday, by order of the Mines authorities below. At the same time, I believe, Act of Parliament renders any one labouring on that day liable to a term of imprisonment. The battery has just finished caushing a small parcel of conglomerate from Barney's Hill, with very satisfactory results, 33 tons yielding almost 2oz per ton. All the conglomerate and quartz leases are raising splendi...

LORD BRASSEY INTERVIEWED. SYDNEY, April 20. [Newspaper Article] — The Pilbarra Goldfield News — 30 April 1897
LORD BRASSEY INTERVIEWED. Sydnky. April 20. During the course ot an interview at Sydney today, and in speaking upon the Greeco - Turkish complications, Lord Brassey, now on a visit to New South Wales, said he had the greatest conli dei.ce in that eminent British statesman, Lord Salisbury, who had so skilfully steered the nation through an anxious time, when the Venezuelan controversy arose. It was most desirable, if possible, to preserve the European concert, rather than to d&lt;-al with the tremendous prob lem involved in the breaking up of the Turkish Empire, now in the process of going to pieciB. It was most desirable the British Government should deal with circumstances as they arose by a method of agreement, rather than have recourse to the awful arbitrament of war. Therefore, Lord Salisbury, he thought, was well advised in straining a point in order to preserve the Europ*an Concert. Of course, there was a point beyond which lie could not go in opposi tion to the nation...

KINGSMLLL Oil EDGCUMBE ? Ok the 17rh of the present month, the electors of Pilbarra District will be railed upon to select the gentlemau who is to represent them in the cum in*; Parliament, and it is to be hoped those qualified to exercise the fran chise will make it a point to do so, and not, feeling assnred of the suc cess of the man they consider suit able, leave to others the duty of making the result no uncertain oue. This is a critical juncture in the life of Pi Ibarra Goidfield, and those with its welfare keeuly at heart should bestir themselves, lest history repeat itself, and this district con tinue to he, not an ever-piesent aud potent, bat virtually, an unknown factor in the political annals of Wes tralia.
