CORRESPONDENCE. RESERVES WANTED. [TO THE EDITOR.] [Newspaper Article] — The Pilbarra Goldfield News — 25 June 1897
CORRESPONDENCE. RESERVES WANTED. [to THE EDITOB-] Sir,—Kindly allow me through the medium of your valuable columns to draw the attention of the Pilbnrra Roads Board to the necessity of the set ting aside of one or more reserves. At the presant time, if any owner of horses j or horse wishes to turn his team or teams out for & few weeks spell, he has to make arrangements with the neigh- j Injuring squatters, and the exorbitant charge of 1/6 per week per head deinauded by the latter, seems to me hardly in keeping with the amount paid by them as rent, namely, I believe, ten shillings per annum per thousand acres. I would suggest some permanent water-' hole, such as Eginbar on the wet weather, track to Gnudoii, being placed aside with say, 1000 acres. This reserve might be put under some control, and a small charge made. I am sure all horse owners will feel with rnc in this matter, and should the squatters complain, well, really, after all, they have only them sclvesTo blame for ...

Barnato's self-destruction was doe to severe nervous strain, brought about by over-work. He was suffer ing from a delusion that he would die poor. It appears that immediately prior to Barnato jumping overboard from tbB steamer Scott, he was walking on the deck in apparently good spirits, and asked a passenger the time, but before any reply could be given he plunged overboard. Au officer of the vessel at once jumped after him, but failed to effect a rescue. The body was afterwardj picked op life being extinct. On the stock exchange of London all African stocks are greatly de pressed in consequence of Barnato's death. It has transpired Barnato thrice attempted to commit suicido before leaving Cape Town.
