Railway Delays. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 9 March 1889
Railway Delays. UNCONSCIONABLE delays are continually happening in the transmission of goods from Adelaide to Broken Hill, the majority of them occurring at Terowie, where the break of gauge is. Very frequently merchandise, the non-arrival of which causes the greatest inconvenience, is, through the notoriously deficient con- veniences at Terowie, detained there for two or three days. It is surely about time some steps were taken in the matter by Barrier tradesmen. South Australia is generally supposed to be very friendly towards the Barrier, and withal possessed of some idea of providing modern conveniences ; but it is positively disgraceful that no better system of tran- shipping at Terowie is adopted. A &nbsp; united protest sent to the Railway Com- missioners might produce some change. As an example of how vexatious may be the delay, it may be mentioned that a periodical shipment of paper should have reached the MINER office two days ago, and, providing for slight delays,...
STRAY NOTES. THE REVIVAL OF SPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 9 March 1889
STRAY NOTES. THE REVIVAL OF SPORT. THE love bf sport is apparently returning to Broken Hill. Twelve months ago &nbsp; &nbsp; there was certainly no town its size in the colonies where more ardent sportsmen &nbsp; were gathered together, nor was there another town where better patronage was extended to all classes of manly recreation and amusement. Race meetings, athletic club fixtures, boxing tournaments, wrest- lingencounters-all were freely patronised, But a change came o'er the spirit of the &nbsp; dream of the sportsman. No golden sovereigns tinkled in his pockets. The course, the running track, and the saloon were almost deserted. Even in cricket and football little interest was taken, and Broken Hill during the past twelve months was fast losing its name as a home of genuine sport. True, there were some forms of sport presented ; but the inter- est taken in them was so insignificant that I fear many of those who engaged in them were compelled, i...
Petty Debts Court. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 9 March 1889

In the same v. Cornelius Biermann, for £3 12s. 11d., goods sold, judgment was entered for the plaintiff for £3 5s. 8d., with costs. In Daniel Brooks v. P. J. Kennedy, on a dishonored cheque for £2 9s. 4d., judgment was given for plaintiff for £2 9s. 4d., with costs. Geo. Raynor sued Richard Tonkin for money lent and horse hire, amounting in all to £3. Judgment was in this case given for plaintiff, with costs.
Non-Payment of Rates. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 9 March 1889
Non-Payment of Rates. At Silverton, on Friday, before Mr. G. H. Gower, P.M., the local municipal council proceeded against the following persons for non-payment of rates. In some cases judgment for amounts levied were given with costs, in others the sum- monses were continued :- James W. C. Crommelin £5 4 0 Elizabeth Simmons ... 2 7 0 &nbsp; Frank Harman . 0 16 0 John Stokie and wife ... 2 10 0 George Crossing. 1 6 0 Edward Colyer . 1 6 0 James Anderson 1 11 0 Robert Eddy . 3 6 0 Henry Williams . 1 13 0 Robert Grabnan. 1 3 0 William C.

Broken Hill Footballers. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 9 March 1889
Broken Hill Footballers. MEMBERS and intending members of the Broken Hill Football Club met at Phillips' saloon last evening, Mr. Newton presiding, to arrange preliminary matters in connec- tion with the coming season. It was, amongst other things, decided that the colors of the club in future be navy blue with silver hoop, instead of navy blue with red hoop. With the object of forming an association several ideas were suggested ; and eventually it was decided that Messrs. Edwards, Stewart and Herbert wait on the Willyama Club on the matter, and also that the Secretary should communicate with Mr. Carlisle, of Silverton, with the same end in view. The name of Mr. Nichols was added to the committee, and, some routine business having been performed, the meeting adjourned.
The South Mine. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 9 March 1889
The South Mine. A RUMOR was yesterday evening somewhat widely circulated that Captain Piper, manager of the South mine, was carrying out the instructions of his directors by dis- missing a large number of his men, with the ultimate object of suspending work altogether. This rumor appears to have been set afloat in Adelaide, and numer- ous telegrams arrived there from asking whether there were any truth in it or not. Inquiry from Captain Piper elicited the information that, instead of any number of men being dismissed, more would be put on ; and attention was drawn to an advertisement which appeared in yester- &nbsp; day's MINER calling for tenders for the sinking of two shafts. Information gleaned from other sources would, how- ever, lead to the belief that some daymen have recently been discharged, but it is believed that a greater number of men will find work at contract than have hitherto been employed by the day.
The Discharge of Men. 107 MEN DISMISSED. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 9 March 1889
The Discharge of Men. 107 MEN DISMISSED. DURING this afternoon the following telegram from one who should know the full particulars regarding the question &nbsp; whether or not a large number of men had been dismissed from the South Mine was received in Broken Hill :-" In reference to the sub-leader in the Silver Age of to-day, it is alleged as a fact that on Captain Piper's return from Sydney, during the present week, 107 men were discharged from the South Mine, viz., on Thursday morning. Some of these men &nbsp; have, it is believed, since been taken on again, and it is also understood that a number of men will be put on Block 5, but in future work will be confined to developing the mine, and less hands than formerly will be employed. Stoping will be discontinued. There is some truth therefore in the reports sent to the metropolis yesterday respecting the dis- charge of men, although the Age says there is not a scintilla."_
Managerial Changes. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 9 March 1889
Managerial Changes. ON Monday last it was announced that Mr. W. Dick, who has for a considerable time been general resident manager for the Barrier Ranges S. M. Association, had severed his connection with that body. It now transpires that the cause of this action was Mr. Dick's ill health. It is understood that he will be succeeded in the management of the Gipsy Girl by Mr. Robert Gibson, for some time the manager of the Pioneer mine, also of Thackaringa, and prior to that of the Victoria Cross property. Mr. Gibson will, however, only exercise a visiting superintendence of the Gipsy Girl, Mr. Polkinghorne remain- ing there as mining manager.

Fell from the Train. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 9 March 1889
Fell from the Train. THE inquest on the body of Abraham Goitt, the Assyrian who recently met his death by stepping off the Broken Hill express near Petersburg, was, writes our Burra correspondent, continued at the local hospital. Charles Bathgate, the well-known pugilist, of Broken Hill, who, it was reported, was the only man in the carriage in which Goitt travelled, was the first to give evidence. He and two others, who were also proved to have been in the carriage at the same time, deposed that Bathgate was lying on the seat when the Assyrian disappeared. This removed all suspicion of foul play, and the jury then returned a verdict, " That the deceased, Abraham Goitt, met his death by accidentally falling from a train while in motion, causing concussion of the brain, and there is no blame attachable to anyone."
The Labor Market [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 9 March 1889
The Labor Market. IT would not appear that the local labor market is glutted in all directions, as some people would have one to believe. For several days now one firm of brick- makers have been advertising for drays on what are said to be favorable terms, and a long job guaranteed ; nevertheless the applicants for the work have so far been few and far between. No doubt there are many others than draymen out of work, but the fact mentioned should prove conclusively that this particular class is not more numerously supplied than necessary for the demand.
Brought Back. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 9 March 1889
Brought Back. WILLIAM AMBROSE MAPPIN, who used to carry on business as a jeweller and clock and watch repairer in a small shop in Argent-street, was presented before Messrs. J. Butterworth and J. J. Williams, Js.P., in the local court this morning, on two charges of larceny as a bailee-the first, of a gold ring of the value of £3, the property of Henry Toal at Broken Hill, on February 25 last ; the second, of two clocks the property of George Carlan, of the value of £2, in the same month. Accused was arrested in Adelaide about a week ago on a warrant from Broken Hill. He was then admitted to bail on his own recog- nisances and was brought back to Broken Hill by Constable Hearn, of the local police, who was sent to Adelaide for the purpose. The officer and his prisoner arrived by the express this morning. Only the constable's evidence was taken this morning, and accused was then remanded for three days. Bail was allowed on the first charge of self in £20 and one surety in the same am...
Whose Dog? [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 9 March 1889
Whose Dog? THOMAS ZEVENBOON, alias Thos. Harris, was brought up in the local police court to-day, charged on warrant with the lar- ceny of a greyhound slut, and a pup, the property of Frederick Smalpage, of the value of £6, about Feb. 11 last. Ser- geant Saunders deposed that upon in- formation from Broken Hill accused was arrested at Mount Browne and taken be- fore the magistrate at Milparinka. The evidence then taken was read, and showed that when arrested accused claimed a right in the slut, having purchased a half share in her from Mr. Jones when the latter was licensee of the South Broken Hill Hotel, and he produced a receipt to that effect. Accused, with the slut, arrived in Broken Hill by coach yesterday, in charge of Constable White, of Wilcannia, and he repeated to Sergeant Saunders that he half owned the dog. When asked what he had done with the pup he said he left it behind, as it had the distemper. On the application of the police a remand for eight days, for the product...
The Original Victory. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 9 March 1889
The Original Victory. EARLY in January the manager of the Original Victory Silver Lead Mining Company resigned (remarks an Adelaide paper), and after his departure operations were also suspended for a few weeks. Three of the directors visited the mine, and though the quantity of ore in sight is not large, they considered the property to be worth systematic development, and 33 tons of ore were at once sent away and sold. The lead varied from 37 to 70 per cent, and the silver from 18 to 34 ozs. Mr J. V. Parkes, lately in charge of the Lady Carrington mine, has been appointed manager, and active operations have been resumed. He intends to save as much ore as possible, and for this purpose is erecting a small hand-dressing plant for treating the seconds. Mr. George Dougherty, stock and station agent of Melbourne, is suing the Bank of Australasia for £30,000, for wrongfully selling plaintiff's station.
"Omnibus" and the "Age." [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 9 March 1889
" Omnibus" and the "Age." &nbsp; YOUR sapient morning contemporary is good enough to attempt to advise me (writes our contributor "Omnibus") on my style of writing, and has the unparalleled effrontery to state that I do not know where "tittle-tattle ends and &nbsp; possible malice begins. " I shall see about &nbsp; this presently ; but permit me to remark that I do know right from wrong, and that in the columns of this contemporary I will guarantee to point out at least a dozen blunders daily that are perhaps hardly the result of carelessness, but of crass ignorance and stupidity. The same subtle censor will not find me write one thing one day and correct it with an apology the next. If my writings partake of gossip they seem to be wonderfully accurate, and form a striking contrast, I hope, to the inter- pretation of this shining light upon European cablegrams, intercolonial tele- grams, and local news. To correct a week's blunders in the Age would take up a ...
The Water Question. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BARRIER MINER. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 9 March 1889
The Water Question. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BARRIER MINER. Sir,- In your issue of the 8th inst, appears an article by " Argentum" and a letter signed by Mr. J. J. Christmas, both criticising, and to a great extent &nbsp; condemning, certain actions taken by members of the council at its late meeting held for the consideration of the water question. With your permission, I ask to be allowed space to reply thereto. " Argentum " has apparently based his assertions on the abridged reports of the meeting, for there is nothing to warrant the statement that any alderman wished to usurp the functions of a professional engineer. One reason given by the proposer of the first resolution for bringing the matter under the notice of the Government, that the geographical situa- tion of the Barrier was not favorable for conservation, raised the question of Stephens' Creek ; and in face of such a reason being adduced, I felt justified in objecting to that portion at least, as I hold an opinion ...
Mineral Leases. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 9 March 1889
Mineral Leases. IN the Government Gazette of March 1 are published a list and particulars of the &nbsp; gold and mineral leases in force in the &nbsp; several mining districts of the colony at the present time. These leases are new so numerous that the lists extend over 83 pages. As might be expected, the number in existence in the Silverton division is very great. The first appears to have been obtained by Thomas John Haydson. for the county of Yancowinna, parish of Stephen, near Umberumberka. This was taken out on June 18, 1884. During the same year seventeen other mineral leases were delivered in the Silverton district, the name of W. P. McGregor most often occurring in connection with them. During 1885 a very much increased number of leases were delivered, num- bering in all 80. It is also worthy of note that in the early part of this year silver mining companies were the lessees for the first time. Thus we have the Lubra S.M. Co.. the Copper Blow S.M. Co., and o...
