A Sydney Mystery. SYDNEY, Tuesday. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 12 March 1889
A Sydney Mystery. &nbsp; SYDNEY, Tuesday. As a result of the inquest on the body of Kate Reilly, the jury found that death was the result of malpractices in the attempt to procure abortion. A verdict of wilful murder on the part of some person or persons unknown was entered. Smith, who it is alleged, is a quack doctor, positively denied having seen the deceased until he found her in the yard adjoining his house ; but a witness also positively swore that he saw the woman Reilly standing on the verandah of Smith's house on the night of February 25. The police intend carrying inquiries into the matter further. Bitten by a Snake. &nbsp; BRISBANE, Tuesday. &nbsp; &nbsp; James Hickey, a miner who lived at &nbsp; Clarron, lingered 30 hours after being bitten by a black snake. After having suffered great agony he died.
After the Deed. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 12 March 1889
After the Deed. INQUIRY at the local hospital this after- noon elicited that the lightweight "pug " &nbsp; Jimmy Bosance, who was admitted a few days ago with his throat cut, was able to sit up, and in a week's time would be fit to leave the institution. As the deed is al- leged to have been the work of his own hands, Bosance will, as soon as discharged from the hospital, be charged before the police court with attempted suicide.
Mappin's Case. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 12 March 1889
Mappin's Case. WILLIAM AMBROSE MAPPIN was, after a lengthy trial before Mr. G. H. Gower, P.M., yesterday afternoon, eventually acquitted of the charge of larceny as a bailee of certain clocks, the property of George Carlaw. The evidence, which was reported yesterday, having been given, Mr. Henning, who appeared for the accused, addressed the court at some &nbsp; length. Mr. Gower , agreed with Mr. &nbsp; Henning's contention, and dismissed the case. Mappin has, however, to appear &nbsp; on two other similar charges. The hearing of these was adjourned for three days, bail being allowed in accused's own surety of £20. &nbsp;
Wanted to Butcher. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 12 March 1889
Wanted to Butcher. A SMALL disturbance took place this after- noon at Neilson's butcher's shop, Oxide street, caused by the disorderly behavior of a man named William O'Gorman, formerly an employee at the establish- ment, whose manner argued drunkenness. He seemed particularly anxious to indulge in fisticuffs. The police were sent for and Constable Urquhart took O'Gorman to the lock-up. He will face the Bench to-morrow, and not for the first time.
The Old Nuisance. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 12 March 1889
The Old Nuisance. It is said that despite the fact that some of the owners of slaughter yards in the South township hare already bean before the local court for having unclean pre- mises, there bas been little improvement in the manner of conducting these &nbsp; &nbsp; establishments. The police are deter- mined to use all the powers invested in &nbsp; them by the statute to compel public &nbsp; cleanliness, and unless the delinquents take this hint, and immediately set their premises in order, it is more than probable that they will shortly find them- selves hauled before the local bench.
"Drunks." [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 12 March 1889
"Drunks." A TALL, smooth-faced young man named William O'Day was drank in Argent-street &nbsp; yesterday and his conduct being dis- orderly, he was taken in charge by the police. Thereupon he grew abusive and used indecent language to the police. The result was that Mr. Tompson, J.P., this morning ordered him to pay 25s or go to gaol for 14 days. James Tain similarly offended and was similiarly punished. John Walsh was found drunk in Delamore street yesterday afternoon. He pleaded guilty this morning, but as he had given the police no trouble, was discharged. George Lever when called to answer to a charge of having been drunk in Argent street at between 2 and 3 o'clock this morning, swaggered up to the scratch with a semi-defiant air, and was distinctly seen &nbsp; to wink in the direction of the Bench, though whether at the presiding justice or at a friend in the doorway beyond was not clear. He bestowed another wink, how- ever, on the press. He questioned the ident...
Copper Fossickers. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 12 March 1889
Copper Fossickers. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; THERE is an immense heap of slag on the &nbsp; property of the old S.A. Copper Company, at Redruth, which has been there since the early days of smelting in the Burra. Of late, through a scarcity of other work, several men have obtained leave to fossick about in the heap, and our Burra corres- pondent understands, they are making a fair living from occasional finds of half smelted ore.
Illustrated News. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 12 March 1889
Illustrated News. WE have received the March number of the Illustrated Sydney News, which is no better than might be. With it is published a large sized supplement, being a key-map to a bird's-eye view of Broken Hill re- cently published. The map fortunately is described as being of Broken Hill, otherwise there might be some mistake &nbsp; about it. The illustrations are fair, at &nbsp; least those are which have been taken &nbsp; from photographs. Altogether the March News is nothing to be proud of.

Copper Market Collapse. ADELAIDE, Tuesday. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 12 March 1889
&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Copper Market Collapse. ADELAIDE, Tuesday. The leading gentlemen connected with the South Australian copper industry have been interviewed relative to the alarming fall in the prices of metal. It has been ascertained that the local mines have no direct dealing with the French syndicate, the bulk of the copper exported being sent to France and there sold to private brokers for cash. The directors do not contemplate reducing hands for the pre- sent, but should the low rate continue their profits will be seriously affected.
A Fight for a £10 Note. A DESPERATE FRAY. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 12 March 1889
A Fight for a £10 Note. A DESPERATE FRAY. LAST night a goodly number of people rolled up to Hamilton's Hall to witness the 'Spider' and the 'Barber' pulverise &nbsp; &nbsp; each other. A good willing 'go' was ex- pected, as both the bantams were known to have thirsted for each other's gore for a long time past. A few friends had a bout with the gloves before the blood- thirsty pair donned the mittens. Wise &nbsp; and Johnson were the first couple to face the music, and as the latter was knocked clean off his feet about twelve times during three rounds, it may be inferred that it was willing enough from the jump. Downie and Billy Wil- liams boxed in first-rate style. &nbsp; &nbsp; Williams looked splendid, and bounded, about the stage like a panther. His con- dition was so good that it drew from his opponent of next Monday night (Owen Sullivan) the remark, ' Tare au' ages! &nbsp; But he's lookin' well.' Owen looked in fine condition him...
