Barrier Miner TUESDAY, MARCH 12, 1889. Refractory Managers. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 12 March 1889
Barrier Miner. TUESDAY, MARCH 12, 1889. Refractory Managers. THE position occupied by the average mine manager is not a bed of roses ; but oftimea the manager himself is greatly to blame for this. One of his greatest troubles, no doubt, is the adverse criticism to which he is sub- jected in'the public.'Press. ' Very naturally in nme casé» out of ten he maintains that those criticisms have resulted from pure malice or down- right ignorance on the - part of the mining reporter or of him who has commented upon the circumstances either detailed by the reporter or dealt with in some other manner. > Then the manager who considers himself wronged exercises what he deems to be his pre- rogative and refuses the representatives of the,"to'.his mind, erring journal admittance to his mine., .j This .sort of thing has been practised on the Barrier for several years, in fact, ever since mining reporters were engaged at all. There has not been one mining reporter, so farras - we can remember, w...
A Pull-up. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 12 March 1889
A Pull-up. WHEN a public body entrusted with important duties sets out to perform a part of its functions, the members thereof should be careful to incur no unfavorable criticism by their behavior. Their business proceedings are, of course, open to legitimate criticism ; but their personal conducts should be such as to give no occasion for adverse comment. It &nbsp; &nbsp; is necessary to administer something in the way of a rebuke to those &nbsp; &nbsp; gentlemen who have the grace and sense to perceive to what circumstances this paragraph alludes. It is sincerely to be hoped that the good "works" which the municipal body in question is undoubtedly capable of performing, and some of which it has already performed, will not be marred by any unseemliness of de- &nbsp; meanor. If not public spirit, at anyrate private self-respect should prevent the necessity for the Press to undertake the painful duty of calling public attention to some of our m...
THE MINE. [BY OUR MINING REPORTER.] [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 12 March 1889
THE MINE. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; [BY OUR MINING REPORTER.] &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; On Saturday last I visited the mine, in company with the mining reporter of the S. A. Advertiser, Mr. S. Lawrence (the &nbsp; legal manager of the company), and Mr. T. C. Tait (one pf the first directors of the original syndicate). My object was to test the truth of the rumor that had been floating round town for some weeks past in reference to the filling-in of the chloride shaft. We all four went down the shaft, and another and myself, sup- plied with tools for the purpose by Mr. Lawrence, started to sink at the bottom &nbsp; of the shaft. We at once discovered that &nbsp; it had been filled in. We worked for two &nbsp; hours, and sunk two holes about 3ft. deep, which we partly filled in again. This was enough for our purpose. We did not know how far the shaft had been filled in, and all we required to know was that such a th...
WHAT DO THEY MEAN? [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 12 March 1889
WHAT DO THEY MEAN? By the above contradictory statements it will be at once seen that someone has been trying to work in a crooked manner, and another swindle has been perpetrated upon the unsuspecting public. Who the guilty party is the public must judge for themselves. Mr. Lawrence, distinctly and emphatically stated that Mr. Bullock never told him anything in reference to the covering in of the lower portion of the shaft, and so also says Mr. Tait, one of the original directors, before Bullock re- signed the management of the mine. If Bullock did not tell his directors, then he was guilty of conduct that would disgrace any man in the eyes of all honest men. Only one conclusion can be arrived at as to the motive in con- cealing the fact that ore was at the bottom level. On the other hand Bullock most &nbsp; emphatically avers that he did tell his first board of directors all about the covered-up ore, and further states that Lawrence must have known all about it. Again, Bul...
MR. S. LAWRENCE'S STATEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 12 March 1889
MR. S. L AWRENCE'S STATEMENT. &nbsp; Mr. SAMUEL LAWRENCE, on being inter- viewed stated:- I never knew anything of the mine until I was asked to help to float it in February, 1888, by Messrs. W. Bullock and David Kemp, who then resided at Broken Hill. I made an &nbsp; agreement to assist them in floating. Bullock was one of the promoters, but &nbsp; Kemp was not one of the original holders. I was told by Bullock that he and his mates opened up the mine two years prior to the time of negotiating with me. Bullock told me that the mine was a splendid one, and he had sent 12cwt. of ore from the mine to the Day Dream smelter, resulting in the return of 4,000 ounces per ton for the firsts, and 900 ounces to the ton for the seconds, and a picked sample went 14,000 ounces to the ton. He further alleged that documentary evidence could be obtained from Mr. Gibson, Senr., at Purnamoota, to bear out this statement. But I never saw it. Bullock said that he had done a lot ...
MR. T. C. TAIT'S STATEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 12 March 1889
MR T. C. TAITS STATEMENT. Mr. T. C. Tait said:— "I was one of the first directors of the Silver Stream S. M. S." "When did you first become acquainted with the Silver Stream mine?" the reporter asked. "When it was first being floated into a &nbsp; syndicate." "How were you connected with the &nbsp; mine?" &nbsp; "I had eight shares given me for help- ing to float the concern and £25, less my share of the advertising expenses. I was appointed one of the first directors. I know Bullock was appointed manager. I &nbsp; do not know why he left the services of &nbsp; the company. I was not on the directorate at the time he severed his connection. Bullock never told me that the lower por- tion of the chloride shaft was covered, but I knew there was a stage put in. Bullock never told me there was good ore below the stage. He never told any of the first directors, to my knowledge. If he says he told me there was rich ore below the stage it is unt...
MR. H. L. ROBERTS' STATEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 12 March 1889
MR. H. L. ROBERTS' STATEMENT. Mr. H. L. Roberts, who endeavored to float the claim, said : Went home, took the Silver Stream mine with me, in June of last year. If Mr. Lawrence, the &nbsp; secretary of the syndicate, states that I was to get nothing and defray my own expenses if I failed to float the mine, then that statement was untrue. For refer- &nbsp; ence I would refer them to the minutes of the meeting, when it was decided that I should take the claim home. It was &nbsp; discussed whether I should take cash or wait four months for the £50. It was decided to adopt the latter course. When &nbsp; I returned from England I waited on Mr. Lawrence and asked him for a hearing in reference to the mine and my doings in London. He refused to hear me. I then wrote in Mr. Lawrence's office to the directors. That letter was never to my knowledge placed by Mr. Lawrence before his directors. His conduct throughout has been questionable in the extreme. My highe...
THE SILVER STREAM. SOME SHADY BUSINESS. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 12 March 1889
THE SILVER STREAM. SOME SHADY BUSINESS. FOR the past few weeks some strange rumors have been floating about regard- ing the Silver Stream mine, and nume- rous inquiries upon the subject have come from Adelaide and elsewhere. In conse- quence of this the "MINER'S", mining re- porter has visited the property, and infor- mation has been obtained from other sources, in order to throw what light is possible upon a somewhat mysterious affair. Of course there is no positive proof that any fraud has been committed ; neither is it insinuated that such has been the case. Nevertheless there are many things in connection with the mine, its proprietary, and its management with which the general public, and more &nbsp; particularly honest shareholders, will not be satisfied. The public are easily swindled. Take an example how this may be done. A and B own a silver mine They know positively that it con- tains magnificent ore, for they have found it in the lowest level in the mine. But whil...
WILLIAM BULLOCK'S STATEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 12 March 1889
WILLIAM BULLOCK'S STATEMENT. Mr. W. Bullock, the late manager, said : Pegged out the claim with my two bro- thers about 4½ years ago. Started the &nbsp; No. 1 chloride shaft, and took out three bags of chloride ore. This ore was of ex- traordinary richness, and Mr. Sylvester Browne, who examined it, classed it with the best ever found upon the field. Sold a forth share to Keats for £100. Then con- tinued to sink the shaft to a depth of 15 &nbsp; feet, in chloride ore all the way. Lost the ore at this depth, carrying away to the north. Sinking was resumed to a depth of 33 feet. The lode formation carried down, but no chlorides were vis- ible. Then drove north 27 feet. About 6 feet from the shaft met a vein, on the hanging wall, of chloride ore, about 6 feet in length, and a couple or three inches in thickness. This was the only rich ore found at that level. Put in a floor to take the ore away from the 15ft. level. Just commenced to break down &nbsp; &n...
Attempted Murder. ADELAIDE, Tuesday. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 12 March 1889
Attëmptèd Murder: ADELAIDE, Tuesday. Henry Richardson, charged with shoot- ing Leonard Woodman, at Pt. Augusta on Saturday night, has been committed for trial for attempted murder. There is nothing fresh in connection with this case except that Richardson appears to have been harboring revenge for a considerable time past on account of Woodman's attentions to his wife.

Parliament Dissolved. THE GOVERNMENT PROGRAMME. MELBOURNE, Tuesday. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 12 March 1889
Parliament Dissolved. THE GOVERNMENT PROGRAMME. MELBOURNE, Tuesday. The Acting-Governor, Sir W. F. C. Robinson, has officially dissolved Parlia- ment. The nominations are to be re- ceived on March 22, and the polling is to take place on the 28th. The writs are returnable on April 4. The Premier, the Hon. D. Gillies, ad- dressed the Kew electors last evening, announcing the Government programme. It was received with fearful, uproar, which was more or less maintained during the whole of the address. He ex- plained that the reason he was leav- ing Rodney, his old constituency, was that experience had taught him that he could not properly manage the canvass of such a large district, the Premier having to transact the office administra- tion even though Parliament was dis- solved. In the course of his speech such expressions as "Kick him out,' "You're a scoundrel !" and so on were frequent. Ultimately a motion that he was a fit and proper person to represent the electorate was declared c...
