STRAY NOTES. THE COUNCIL MEETINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 1 March 1889
STRAY NOTES - THE COUNCIL MEETINGS. Not manyweeks ago, Alderman Williams introduced as an amendment to a motion in the municipal council that in future meetings of that body should be held every alternate Wednesday. The circum- stances under which this amendment was &nbsp; &nbsp; brought forward were of so extremely peculiar a nature that at the time many thought-and I must confess to being then amongst the number-that Alderman Williams had moved this amendment out of pure cussedness, if I be allowed the use of that term. Nevertheless the &nbsp; arguments he then adduced were so strong that I see no reason to now doubt Mr. Williams' sincerity. As he pointed out, &nbsp; the hospital committee meetings are held also on Wednesday nights. Masonic lodge meetings are held also on these nights, and various other societies follow suit. Several complaints have &nbsp; been made that Wednesday night is invariably seized upon as that for the holding of me...

Larceny as a Bailee. &nbsp; OVER THE BORDER. ADELAIDE, Saturday. William Ambrose Mappin, jeweller, late of Broken Hill, was charged in the Adelaide Police Court this morning with stealing one gold ring while being the bailee, the property of Henry Toal, of Broken Hill ; also with coming under the scope of the Fugitive Offenders' Act. He acknowledged to being the person wanted &nbsp; on the charge, stating that he had brought &nbsp; the ring with him for repairs. He had written to Toal previous to his arrest, saying that he had been unable to see him prior to leaving the Hill.

Manager and Men. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 2 March 1889
Manager and Men. &nbsp; A VERY pleasing fact, showing a good re- lationship existing between the Mine Manager and his employes, has come to light in connection with the recent elec- tion of officers of the local branch of the Miners' Association. On the polling day, the manager of one of the mines in the Round Hill district called the men up from the shaft to record their votes, thereby facilitating the poll-taking. This arrangement proved of great convenience to the voters and generosity of the manager will not be speedily forgotten. Any circumstance pointing to the main- tenance of pleasant relationship between the managers of the mines and the men in their employ is to be cordially wel- comed. &nbsp;

Men for Men's Work. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BARRIER MINER, [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 2 March 1889
Men for Men's Work. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BARRIER MINER, &nbsp; SIR,—Kindly grant me space in your valuable paper to ask whether it is a steward's place to report to the A. M. A. if he knows of anyone working under wages on a mine. If it is I think it would be advisable for one to have a look through the British mine, as there are plenty of practical miners and men able to do trucking in Broken Hill. Just see if they can't drop on two truckers and three miners, considered not able to do a man's work, engaged there under wages If they cannot. I'M A DUTCHMAN.
