^ail jfetofr OUR ANGLO-COLONIAL LETTER. [From our Sirecial Correspondent,] London. February 8. 1839/ We have received In brief telegrams in telligence of the proceedings of tha Aas tralasian Federal Council at Hobart, but the information is of a very meagre cha racter. The general impression, however, is that although, the council cannot yet boast of imposing proportions or com manding Influence, it shows In both a grow tn that may reasonably be taken to betoken greater things for tie future. Aa to the action taken by the council, the vgrd&t ia that it appears insignificant for a concl&ye of such high-sounding title and representing the interests of provinces bo vaet. Still it is recognised that tha caution and hesitation shown about assuming an active general conrae of action before the council cer taltly knows the limits of its own Influence, and while yefc there are other provinces which may become Incor porated with it, manifest prudence in judgment and a spirit ...
LONDON TABLE TALK. London, February 8, 1889. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 23 March 1889
LONDON TABLE TALK. rPrcm our Special Correspondent,! London, February 8, 1889. The February magazines contain several articles of quite exceptional interest and importance which should on no account be missed. The Contemporary has of course the outrageous or courageous — whichever way yon happen to look at It — attack on Bismarck pere etfils. The more carefully one reads this tremendous im peachment the more clearly one sees it cannot fail to have great Influence on the future. The Chancellor himself Is simply furious, and has vowed condign vengeance on the unfortunate Empress Frederick, to whose inspiration he attributes many of the most damning passages. Neither he not Count Herbert (whose amiable charac teristics are so luridly pictured) will rest until they discover the writer. The editor of the Contemporary has ec far been discretion itself (declines even to negative people's suspicions), and nothing can be learnt from printer or compositors, as the article was type-written.

THE NOBTH AND JUNCTION MINES. THE OPTNTONS OF EXPERT3. [From the Silver Ace of March IS.] We have become to accustomed or late to receive telegrams from Adelaide, Syd ney, and Melbourne clamorous for informa tion regarding rumors that have reached theFe piaces concerning the mines ia pro cess oi development in the main Broken Hill lode that we were prepared for almost any vegaiy possible to imagine. Yesterday evemeg, however, proved that there were sur prises in store for us that outbppErared all pre viouB efforts in this direction Vague murmurs were at first in process of circulation about the pinching out of the lode- at the North mine, that the hanging- wall had been met with in the crosscut at about 9 feet, and that the lode stiiff waB poor. The Junction lode, at the 300 feet level, it waB next alleged, was dwind ling away into nothingness, and the upper levels abandoned, the ore being worked out. But the climax came when it was freely stated that the Barrier Ranges Concentratin...
THE JUNCTION LODE. A SURREPTITIOUS VISIT. IMPORTANT DISCLOSURES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 23 March 1889
THE JUNOIION LODE, A SURREPTITIOUS VISIT. IMPORTANT~DIS0L0SURES. fFrom ths Barrier Miner of March 18. 1 Some weeks ago it was considered advisable to insert in the columns of the Barrier Miner a strong protest against the way in which the Junction mine had been 'worked.' The protest was couched in the plainest words imaginable, acd the words used were to the efiect that the Junction was one of the moat Bhamefullv mismanaged mines upon .the Barrier. - This action was prompted by the knowledge that influential members of a cer tain clique were trying to work the mine for their own special advantage, to the detriment cf tbe shareholders generally. The news was at that time beicg diligently spread abroad that the lode at the SCO- feet level of the mine had pinched out beyond all hope of redemption. Thift latter idea the Miner most stoutly coin batted from the first moment that the rumor was circulated, (and we have ever since asserted that it would not be long before tbe lode would be f...

This gully is not near Blackwocd at all, but is some 20 miles beyond it, and the mine is about 2S miles from Adelaide by road, the way to it being through Clarendon.

Behind a good pair of horses, and with a gcod driver, the journey was a pleasant one. The company's property is 80 acres in exte...

OUR CALIFORNIA!* LETTER, — ? [From our own Correspondent.] San Francisco, February 11, 1889. It begins to look like a foregone con clusion that our exemption from coolie immigration Is to be a brief one. The men in command are evidently determined to change the course of the ship of State on this question, and to undo all that Cleveland's administration, In a political h*-at,_ had rlnn« fnr thn whlfa labor Interest on the Pacific coast. The first Intimation of this change of policy was the defeat of the Bill in the Callfornlan Legislature to employ special counsel to assist the At torney-General of the United States In the argument of the Chae Chou Ping caBe, to be made before the Supreme Court* on the 11th of March next. The counsel for the six companies and those In terested In flooding the country with Chinese have devoted months of time to the consideration of their side of the case, and are fully prepared for argument, while those supposed to be interested for the people show n...

Surveyed lot 45 with a view_ of ascertaining the position of the buildings, which were all villa residences. Know lot 44, and understood it was held on lease for 50 years from November, 1881, As sumicg that on each of these acres dwellings' to cost £1.000 were to be erected and one value £750 on the three-quarter acre, in my opinion tbat lease would be wcrth nothing. Knowing all the other of the company's properties, lot 44 is not, in my opinion, material to the posses sion or enjoyment of the company's property. By Mr, Downer — In my opinion if a pur chaser bought a lease without a cove nant to expend £2,750 without know ledge of the covenant he ought to re ceive this amount as compensation.
