Barrier Miner. SATURDAY MARCH 9, 1889. The Nominee House. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 9 March 1889
SATURDAY, MARCH 9, 1889. The Nominee House. SOME of the events which no doubt &nbsp; led up to the overhtrow of the Dibbs Administration should produce a last- ing effect upon the minds of both parties in the New South Wales legislature; and more especially is this the case with the accusation brought against the late Government in reference to the appointment of Legislative Councillors. For very many years the constitution of the Upper House has been subject to much adverse comment. The people very naturally object to having measures &nbsp; which have been passed by their &nbsp; &nbsp; elected representatives thrown out by a nominee House-; and now the &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Parkes party have raised their voice and objected to the appointment of &nbsp; eight gentlemen because they declare they were simply relegated to the chamber for purely party purposes. On these grounds they delare the constitution of the House to be ...

Great American Insect Exterminators. It paralyses the first touch and then kills. If blown into their haunts (crevices), or where their eggs are laid, death is in- stantaneous for Beetles, Ants, Silver Fish, or any other insect. It is perfectly harm- &nbsp; less to birds or animals, and may be placed under the wing of a pet canary, and rubbed on dogs, cats, or monkeys, killing &nbsp; &nbsp; the parasites that infest them. If burnt in a room or in a camp, it kills flies and mosquitoes. If placed on window-sills you can see the large " blow fly," as well as the common fly, give up the ghost.

Wife Beaters. [Br SMILER.] [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 9 March 1889
Wife Beaters. [By SMILER.] HAVING heard that there were several members of this most accomplished and gentlemanly profession dwelling in our midst, I determined to put on my very best manners and pay several of them a visit of congratulation. So, arming myself with a packet of insect powder, I ventured forth in quest of one of these noble specimens of God's creation. When I had arrived at the door, my dog refused to enter the house. I couldn't blame the dog ; and, not being able to explain my mission to my canine friend, I had to put up with the look of disgust that the animal gave me when I entered the door of the wife-beater ; for even a dog would refuse to bite one of those cow-hearted creatures under any circumstances. I found Mr. Longman, the 'gentleman' himself, at home with his wife. The latter had a face like a pretty cottage with a bad tenant. She had a decidedly pretty front, but one window had the shutter up &nbsp; and was decidedly black. It might have &n...

LOVERS BOTH.[The End.] A year later the whole of Wyvill family are once more gathered together in the old house in the Cathedral close. On the morrow a double wedding is to be solemnized. Francis has chosen one of the very sweetest girls in the whole city of Idleminster for his bride, and at last Noel and Graham are to become all in all to each other. Molly and Dorothy are &nbsp; there with their husbands and child- ren, the Wyvill comeliness deepened and &nbsp; increased by the unmistakable signs of happy married life ; so also is Conny, now engaged to Mr. Blake, and looking forward to see Nell before another year is over, for Willy Blake was three months ago presented to an Indian chaplaincy, and Conny was without difficulty persuaded to cast in her lot with his. Present two are the twins, together as of old, with arms close entwined about each other's waist &nbsp; and with their ruddy golden locks ming ling, though Adele has been for several months Barones...

Mr. Walterus Brown. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 9 March 1889
Mr. Walterus Brown. SOME days ago it was announced in the &nbsp; MINER that there were good grounds for &nbsp; believing that Mr. Walterus Brown &nbsp; would be appointed police magistrate, &c., at Broken Hill. It is now notified in the Government Gazette that Mr. Brown has been appointed "to be a Warden of the Albert Mining District, to act within the division assigned to Mr. Warden De Boos, during the absence of Mr. Warden De Boos on leave, such appointment to take effect from the 14th ultimo." As &nbsp; &nbsp; Mr. De Boos is only away on short leave, it is almost certain some other division will be found for Mr. Brown. And the fact of the Broken Hill &nbsp; appointment being open strengthens the assertion that Mr. Walterus Brown is in- tended to be the next police magistrate and warden at Broken Hill.

Case Dismissed. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 11 March 1889

On Saturday last a man named James &nbsp; Walsh and the old man James Fahey, whose name is familiar in connection with the police court proceedings, were in the bar of Kenny's hotel,and both were intoxi- cated. The licensee, who was sitting in the bar parlor, heard the sound of a heavy blow and going out found Fahey lying on his face and bleeding therefrom, while Walsh was making off. Walsh was arrested and taken to the policestation, but when the constable in charge arrived there he found that Fahey had already been taken there and appeared to have recovered from the effects of the blow. Walsh was charged with common assault, and was brought &nbsp; before Mr. Gowers.P.M., this morning. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; - these facts were elicited. Walsh &nbsp; told the bench that he was so drunk on Saturday night he had no recollection of what occurred. The bench held that there was no c...
An Old Offender. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 11 March 1889
An Old Offender. HENRY WILLIAMS was found drunk and disorderly in Oxide-street, and this morn- ing pleaded guilty to the offence. The police proved nine previous convictions, and stated that he had just come out of gaol after serving a term as an habitual drunkard. Prisoner pleaded very hard for his liberty, and promised to be a teetotaller and go away from the township if discharged. He said he had had a lot of trouble during the last 10 months, which had caused him to take to drink at times. The bench remarked that the prisoner's face was familiar, and that he had been several times convicted of drunken- ness in Willcannia. " Now, will you pro- mise me not to get drunk any more, but get to work?" asked the bench. " I will, &nbsp; I will," said the prisoner. " Then you are discharged, and mind you don't come here again."
