Glenelg Train Dispute. ADELAIDE, Saturday. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 9 March 1889
Glenelg Train Dispute. ADELAIDE, Saturday. A deputation waited upon the Glenelg council last night, ostensibly for the pur- pose of asking the council to open up negotiations with the Glenelg Railway Co., with the object of reallowing the running of the trains through the streets. Most of the deputation, however, took quite an opposite view, supporting the corporation in their demand for adequate compensation for the use of the streets. A statement was made by a deputationist that Councillor C. Mortimer Muirhead had travelled during the past three months over the Glenelg line free of charge was characterised by that gentleman as an "infernal lie," amid tremendous uproar. The special sixpenny return fares, attract large numbers to Semaphore and Largs Bay, who previously visited Glenelg.

Block 14. SECOND SMELTER STARTED. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 9 March 1889
Block 14. &nbsp; &nbsp; SECOND SMELTER STARTED. &nbsp; HAVING heard that the second of the two 80-ton smelters was to be put in blast this morning, a representative of the MINER proceeded to the mine so as to be present at the initiation ceremony at ten o'clock, the hour at which it was under- stood the furnace would be started. Upon arriving at the smelter shed, no signs of any unusual proceeding were discernible. The left-hand smelter, &nbsp; which has so far proved a complete success, was venting slag at one exit and bullion at the other with its usual regu- larity, and the bars of bullion, &nbsp; methodically piled close by, testified to the good work being done. Just a glance at No. 1 smelter and then attention was directed to No. 2; but as Manager Lane was not on the spot, it was deemed advis- able to interview him before proceeding to close investigation. It is necessary to be careful in passing over the levelled ground in front of the ...
Great Barrier Range. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 9 March 1889
Great Barrier Range. NEWS comes from Adelaide that a very rich discovery has lately been made in the country lying just at the " fault" of the Broken Hill Ranges, more commonly known as the Great Barrier Range, about fifteen miles south-east of Cockburn, and exactly opposite a similar conformation of country in South Australia, viz., the Booloomatta Ranges. From an assay by the Government Assayer the stone gave 114 oz. of silver to the ton, with a slight per centage of copper, and from a bulk assay of half a ton by the E. and A. Copper Company, Port Adelaide, the same stone gave over 40 oz. of silver, so that the presence of a rich argentiferous deposit is undeniable. Arrangements have been made to proceed with work at once, a complete plant having been for- warded within twenty-four hours of re- ceipt of the bulk assay.
Waukaroo Tinfield. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BARRIER MINER. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 9 March 1889
Waukaroo Tinfield. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BARRIER MINER. Sir,-Respecting the Waukaroo tin- field, a great many claims in this district were floated into syndicates, in many of which I hold an interest. I wonder what the directors intend to do in the matter, now that Mr. Crossing's concentrating plant at Albion Town has proved a suc- cess in cleaning the ore to perfection. Samples given to me by his manager, Mr. Threadgold, showed pure oxide of tin, and he at the same time told me it could be treated in quantities for £1 per ton, so that stone going, say, 3 percent, would pay well. I am convinced that there are few claims on this field producing less; and I think it high time the shareholders were bestirring themselves to their own interest, as there is also plenty of water at hand. I cannot understand why they are waiting. The result will be the money will be consumed and no one will be able to see where it has gone to. I would suggest that each secretary publish through the press a s...
