EAGLEHAWK S.M. COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 2 March 1889
EAGLEHAWK S.M. COMPANY. The half-yearly meeting of the Eagle- &nbsp; hawk S. M. Company was held in Mel- bourne on Thursday, when the report of a specially-engaged expert was read. He reported that there were really no lodes disclosed in the mine, and nothing but small veins carrying ironstone. In one place a very thin vein was carrying native silver. He recommended that this should &nbsp; be followed down. The meeting resolved &nbsp; to remit the question of management of &nbsp; &nbsp; the mine to the directors, with instruc- &nbsp; tions to reduce the expenses as far as &nbsp; &nbsp; possible and prospect portions of the property according to the recommendations of the expert. &nbsp;

Bidding Good-bye. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 2 March 1889
Bidding Good-bye. ON Thursday evening, at the Silverton Wesleyan Church, the usual quarterly social was held, and the occasion was seized to bid good-bye to the Rev. A. S. J. Fry, the retiring clergyman. Mr. Fry also introduced his successor, the Rev. Mr. Trewren. Before the time for dis- persing had arrived, Mr. Taylor expressed his satisfaction with Mr. Fry's work in the church, and he believed he was correct in affirming that that satisfaction was general. Mr.Fry had especially taken a praiseworthy interest in organisations in which young men were particularly inter- ested. Mr. Fry suitably responded. During the evening several songs were sung and recitations rendered.

For Protection. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 2 March 1889
For Protection. &nbsp; &nbsp; An old man named Henry Burns, who &nbsp; has three times been before the local court on charges of being of unsound mind, drunkenness, and needing protection, was found in Argent-street yesterday by the police, evidently incapable of taking care of himself and lying down near the Went- worth Hotel. He owned to being nearly 60 years old, a miner by occupation, and was recently discharged from the hospital. He appears to be friendless and penniless, and his health is so feeble that he could not be brought before the bench to-day.

Sanitary Matters. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BARRIER MINER. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 2 March 1889
Sanitary Matters. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BARRIER MINER. Sir,-I notice in your report of the municipal council meeting held on Feb- ruary 27, in reference to a letter from Mr. John J. Christmas, you say that Alderman Jones found fault with the &nbsp; veracity of some of the statements made. &nbsp; It would have saved me some trouble in replying if I had known which statement he referred to. Is it to the statements that no disinfectants are used by the &nbsp; scavenger, either on his carts or in the cesspits, either when he is emptying them or after they are emptied ? I have good reason to know that this statement is &nbsp; correct, from the fact that all my family, as well as my men, have been ill since a &nbsp; closet adjoining my place has been &nbsp; emptied. One of the men has had to go to Adelaide with fever since, and all were well previous to being poisoned by the scavenger's cleansing process. I only &nbsp; wonder that the...

Accidental or Otherwise? [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 2 March 1889
Accidental or Otherwise ? A FOREIGNER, named Abraham Goitt, was admitted into the local hospital (wrote our Burra correspondent yesterday), on Wed- nesday evening in a dying condition. It appears the man was on his way from &nbsp; &nbsp; Broken Hill to Adelaide, and when about two miles from Petersburg he by some means got from the train to the side of the line, and so injured himself that on his being picked up his life was despaired of. On being admitted into the hospital he was attended to by Dr. Sangster of Kooringa, but no hope was entertained of his recovery, and the poor fellow died during the night. An inquest was com- menced on Thursday, before Mr. D. S. Packard, J.P., and a jury of twelve. The evidence of the doctor and a fellow countryman named Carlile Goitt was taken, and the inquiry was adjourned till Tuesday next, when the police intend &nbsp; having further evidence. According to all accounts the only passenger in the &nbsp; same carria...
Without Foundation. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 2 March 1889
A RUMOR was current in the town this morning that Mrs. Clarke, who, it is &nbsp; alleged, was so shamefully ill-treated by her husband at near Stephens' Creek, had died last night in the hospital of the in- juries received. On inquiry at the in- stitution this morning it was found that there was no truth in the rumor, as Mrs. Clarke is progressing very satisfactorily.
Williams and Green. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 2 March 1889
Williams and Green. DAVE GREEN states that he has retired from the prize-boxing ring and will not, therefore, at least for the present, meet Williams. Fred Green is, however, willing, it is said, to come to terms with Williams, and negotations are now pro- ceeding for a match between these two for £100 a-side. Already £10 a-side has been put up at the MINER office, and it is anticipated that another £40 each man will be put up with Mr. Hales this after- noon. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;
The Treasure Mine. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 2 March 1889
The Treasure Mine. FOLLOWING is the directors' report pre- sented the shareholders in Melbourne on Thursday :-"Work has been con- tinuously carried on at the mine during the past half-year, but as yet without dis- covering any permanent deposit of the same class of rich ore met with in the early history of the mine, although several small but very rich patches have &nbsp; &nbsp; been met with. Mr. James A. Nolan &nbsp; having resigned his position as mining manager in December last, Mr. A. F. Arkinstall, who possessed a previous &nbsp; &nbsp; knowledge of the mine, has been ap- pointed to succeed him. Mr. Arkinstall has recommended the sinking of a new shaft south of the present deep shaft, to cut the lode at about 100ft depth, from which he has little doubt that he will pick up the rich ore again. These recommendations have beep adopted, and tenders are now being called for the work." The balance-sheet shows receipts £1210 and credit balance ...

The Junction Mine. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 2 March 1889
The Junction Mine. THE following report by Mr. W. H. J. Slee, Chief Inspector of Mines, has been submitted to the Minister of Mines :- " Several paragraphs have lately appeared in the Sydney press stating that great excitement prevailed and almost a panic had set in consequence of the lode in the Broken Hill Junction mine, at Broken Hill having pinched out. I do myself the Honor to inform you that the pinching out of the lode in any mine on the Barrier Ranges might occur at any time. In my annual report of 1883 and subsequent reports, I drew attention to the fact that when the mineral deposits of the Barrier Ranges were most systematically developed it would be found that they are not &nbsp; continuous lodes but lenticular veins occurring in shoots and pinches of ore going down a certain depth, trending along the line of lode or fissure, and then &nbsp; pinching out ; but the mine managers and miners should not be discouraged by this failure which is characteristic o...
