The Silver Ring. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 8 March 1889
The Silver Ring. THE shareholders in the Silver Ring S.M. Company met at the York Hotel last night, Mr. Hodge presiding. The chair- man said that the object of the meeting was to consider the position of the com- pany. Some time ago, recognising the high value of the property, a contract had been let to the Phoenix Foundry pro- prietors to supply certain machinery at £1015. The calls which were to pay for this had not come in ; and, although the contractors had been paid £250, they had removed the plant which had been placed on the mine. Other directors spoke, ex- pressing their willingness to resign if the shareholders were dissatisfied with them ; but by a unanimous vote those present de- clared that this was not the case. The mine manager (Mr. Julian) having affirmed that the mine was looking better than ever it did, a motion was carried authorising the absolute forfeiture of all shares upon which the calls were, at the expiration of 21 days, unpaid. Mr. Uren having been appointe...
Amongst the Mines. [BY OUR MINING REPORTER.] THE SILVER CRESCENT. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 8 March 1889
Amongst the Mines. &nbsp; &nbsp; [BY OUR MINING REPORTER.] &nbsp; THE SILVER CRESCENT. ALL work is suspended at this mine for the present, but, as a new board of direc- tors has been appointed, it is fully expected that the mine will be put in full working order early next week. The manager seems very confident as to the ultimate results at this property, as things gene- rally were looking very well when he received his orders to stop working. For my part I think a good deal of the Silver Crescent, and also of its manager ; and I am confident that, had he been put in charge of the mine 12 months earlier there would have been a different tale to tell about the mine at the present moment. I have good reason to know that all the workings in connection with the Crescent prior to the advent of the present manager were not in accordance with my ideas of honest mining ; but under the present regime I think things will be carried on in an upright and straight- forwar...

Silverton Warden's Court. YESTERDAY, before the Warden (Mr. Gower), in Henry and Wm. Walsh v. Jaa. Smith, Mr. Welsh appeared for plaintiffs and Mr. McCarthy for defendant. This was an action for trespass on land at the Acacia Dam. The plaintiff alleged that he gave the defendant permission to quarry limestone on an acre of land, but no time was mentioned. The defendant pleaded that he bought the acre of land for the sum of £10. After hearing the evidence, which, was somewhat contradictory, the Warden dismissed the case with £6 7s. costs. In the case of Henderson v. others against Hawke and others. Mr. Welsh appeared for the plain- tiffs and Mr. Jhonson for the defendants. This was an action for trespass on a mine- ral area in the neighborhood of the Angas mine, but in reality was to decide the &nbsp; title to the land. It appeared from the evidence which occupied the court the whole of the afternoon, that both parties pegged out under mineral licenses, the defendants applyin...

Only one tender, that from Messrs. Robert Fry and Co., of Silver ton and Broken Hill, was received for &nbsp; the supply of 20 pairs of trousers. The &nbsp; price named was 25s. a pair, and this tender was accepted.

Early Closing. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 8 March 1889
Early Closing. THE members of the local Early Closing Association have now little to complain about in respect of tradespeople closing at 6 o'clock. So far as is known, only one shopkeeper expresses dissatisfaction with the alteration . The lessening of the hours of labor is, of course, very highly &nbsp; prized by the assistants ; and it is stated that it is probable a mutual improvement &nbsp; society, or some kind of club, will be &nbsp; formed amongst the members, whereat an hour or two may be profitably spent in the long winter evenings. The idea is a good one. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; The Premier of Victoria hopes that when political affairs in New South Wales asssume their normal condition he will be able to persuade the Government to join with the other colonies in obtaining the advice of an English officer of distinction on the subject of federal distinction. &nbsp;

Athletic Club. APPOINTMENT OF OFFICERS. THE annual meeting of the Broken Hill Athletic Club was held in Cummins' Ex- change Hotel last night.

Sergeant Saunders pro- duced proxies of 25 members who had told him they would be unable to be &nbsp; present. Among these were some who took the greatest interest in the club, and who would not have failed to attend but ...
Water Supply. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BARRIER MINER. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 8 March 1889
Water Supply. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BARRIER MINER. Sir,-It is gratifying to know that the cily fathers have at last met to discuss the water question. It is certainly a begin- ning, and small mercies of this class must not be ignored. But there are peculiari- ties about the report of the meeting that makes one think that aldermen are really not as earnest about the matter as they would have us to believe they are. The first peculiarity is this, that the principal resolutions are proposed by the Mayor. This appears to me to be contrary to general usage for a Mayor to move resolutions in a council meeting. But perhaps Broken Hill is establishing a precedent. However, I think the Mayor's resolution is in the right direc- tion, as fas as it has gone ; but I think Alderman Williams has succeeded in neu- tralising its effect by his action, which is very hard to understand. He says, when speaking on the first resolution, "As to boring for water it was well known that this system was very sp...
Theatre Royal. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 8 March 1889
Theatre Royal. THE Friedman Minstrels last evening afforded amusement to another moderate audience in the Theatre Royal. The eccentricities of the corner men and Messrs. Tracy and Adson, Irish Comedians, the vocal efforts of Messrs. Fredericks and Pope, and the songs and dances of Miss Nina Tulloch and Miss Aggie Atkin- son were much appreciated, several encores being demanded.
