MINE MANAGERS' REPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 25 January 1898
MINE MANAGERS' REPORTS. New Golconda.—The leader has been driven upon about 14ft and broken down. The leader has been split up, but now seems coming together again. No picked stone has been got, but colours of gold are seen in the stone. In the leading stope the leader looks very well indeed. Grace Darling.—The rise is being carried up on the footwall side of the lode, and is producing ore of very good quality. About four feet of stone is being broken out and saved for treatment. Apparently the whole of the lode is eight feet in thickness, all of which will be available for crushing.
WAIHI BEACH. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 25 January 1898
WAIHI BEACH. (By Telegraph—Own Correspondent.) PAEROA, this day. Development work on the Waihi Beach Company's ground is proceeding satisfactorily. Driving has been started on one of the branches of the big reef from the side facing the coast, and a good-looking class of ore is being exposed. It is anticipated that this branch will gradually connect with the other branch lodes running alongside, forming one large reef. A drive will also shortly be started to prove at some depth the lode traced along the surface before Christmas, and which looked very promising.

LORD BRASSEY ON COOPERATION. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 25 January 1898
LORD BRASSEY ON COOPERATION. Lord Brassey last week lectured before the Essendon branch of the Australian Natives' Association on &quot; Co-operation and Profit Sharing Industries.&quot; His Excellency entered upon an elaborate review of cooperation in England from the initiation of the movement at Rochdale down to the highly-organised institutions that exist in England and in Scotland, some of which have a capital amounting to £15,000,000, and a business equalling £5,000,000. Many attempts had been made by workmen to become their own employers, but in England co-operative products, when compared with &quot;ordinary industry, were only* an insignificant quantity. Co-operative experiments in farming in the United Kingdom had been a failure, as agriculture could only flourish under highly-skilled management; but experience in Denmark had shown that co-operation might be applied to dairying with highly satisfactory results. While the advantages of co-operative p...
AUCKLAND TOTAL ABSTINENCE SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 25 January 1898
AUCKLAND TOTAL ABSTINENCE SOCIETY. The 55th annual meeting of the members of the above Society was held last evening in the Christian Meeting House, Ponsonby Road, when there was a fair attendance.

The report further stated that the last tenants having left the Hall it had been leased for five years to the Central Mission on conditions that Gospel Temperance work be advocated.

BUSH FIRES IN TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 25 January 1898
BUSH FIRES IN TASMANIA. MANY SETTLERS HOMELESS. NOTES BY AN OLD AUCKLANDER, Mr A. Picard, formerly of Auckland, now at Mount Lyell, in Tasmania, writes as follows of the disastrous bush fires recently experienced in that colony :— This flourishing district was the scene of one of the most terrible fires that has ever visited Tasmania on the day before New Year. Fires of a small nature were smouldering on the hills adjacent all the previous day, but were taken little notice of by the residents, as they were a good -*y ay off any places of habitation, but towards evening things began to assume a more serious aspect, as the wind was blowing very strong and drove the flames towards the Big Mine. There was no imminent danger, but as lights were extinguished in the various homes that night a very uneasy feeling existed in the minds of many. Toward morning a gale was blowing. The inhabitants were aroused by a roar like a cataract proceeding from the vicinity of Mount Lyell proper, and it w...
SUNDAY WORK AT WAIHI. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 25 January 1898
SUNDAY WORK AT WAIHI. (To the Editor.) Sir,—On Wednesday evening a carpenter Avrote in defence of the batteries being allowed to work on Sundays,. and from the standpoint of the people here and noAv, getting employment and dividends, his contention is forceful. But there are other considerations, viz., that of the people's permanent Avell-being and the interest ot society. When the Rev. E. G. RoAve, of Perth, gave an address here last November he told us that on their goldfields they had no Sabbath, all kinds of work Avas in full swing, the Yankee plan being in force. The same reasons that would keep the Waihi mine and battery going on Sundays would apply to the Kauri Timber Company's and other mills. Of course the same logic Avould stop all Sunday labour for gain merely,and so it ought to be. While the dismissal of so many men is a great hardship, is it not likely to be temporary rather than permanent, the policy of the company doubtless being to make the workers see and feel what ...
RAILWAY SEASON TICKETS. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 25 January 1898
RAILWAY SEASON TICKETS. (To the Editor.) , ..* Sir, —I shall feel obliged if you can tell' me why there is such an enormous differ* ence between, the rates charged for railway; season tickets to the rich man, who can afford to pay a year in advance, and to the poor man, who cannot afford to pay more than one month in advance. I freely admit that a concession should be made to&quot; the man who pays for the longer term,,tint. I contend that either the charge for yearly tickets is too low or that for monthly tickets is too high. Take a fewfigures as given in the railway time table. A second-class yearly ticket for two miles costs £2 ss. A second-class monthly ticket for the same distance costs 5s Gd, so thai the man who is compelled to buy'monthly,, tickets pays £3 6s per annum for,the same-;; privilege as costs his more wealthyneighbour only £2 ss. For six miles a . yearly ticket costs £6 10s, and a monthlyr ticket 16s 6d, making the yearly cost £9 18s. The proportions vary s...
CONDENSED CORRESPONDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 25 January 1898
CONDENSED CORRESPONDENCE. Our Railways.—R.B. is of opinion that the railway policy heretofore has been a short-sighted one, and has hampered the progress of the colony. Greater strid_s would have been taken in the development of our agricultural and mineral resources had greater facilities been, offered by the railway authorities. In catering for suburban traffic, especially, a lack of enterprise has been shown, with the result that 'buses compete success ■; fully against the railways. He also condemns the insufficient protection of the lines, in oon sequence of which'fatal acciy dents have occurred. Our correspondent further expresses an opinion that if the railways Avere in the hands of a private company a very different state of things would prevail. He thinks that the increased traffic which followed the last re** duction in fares indicates that further concessions in the same direction would prove beneficial to the public and the rail- Avay revenue. Schools of Agriculture.—Mr H...

SOME STARTLING FACTS. THE ANTI-SWEATING LEAGUE OF v VICTORIA. PLAN OF CAMPAIGN FOR 189 S. HOW SOME APPRENTICES ARE PAID. The seating accommodation of Wesley Church, M.elbonrne,was taxed to its utmost capacity on January 9th by the audience •which assembled to bear Mr S. Mauger, the lion, secretary to the Victorian Anti-sweating League, unfold that body's programme ot opeiations for the year just entered upon. Tlie proceedings were marked throughout by great* enthusiasm, and hearty plaudits greeted each reference riiade to past success, and present determination of the league to remove even the possibility of tite'practice of sweating from eVery trade and calling in the colony. Mr Mauger, who was received Avith applause, said he thought it a very fitting place in which to review and forecast the work of the Anti-sweating League, because it was there its operations had been publicly inaugurated. He wants to point out to his hearers that the council of the body he represented were goin...
A GIRL'S SAD DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 25 January 1898
A GIRL'S SAD DEATH. CARBOLIC ACID AND TOOTHACHE. A sad poisoning accident occurred at Berrin-a, New* South Wales, on January 14th, by which a young girl, aged 16, named Kate Walker, met her death. The girl was suffering severely from toothache, and when asked to come to dinner stated that her tootli was too had, and that she would be down shortly. She was visited later on by her cousin, when she pointed to a bottle of carbolic acid. Recognising that the girl was very bad, Iter cousin brought assistance, but, in spite of everything being done, she expired at 2 a.m. An inquest was held, when a verdict of accidental death was returned. It is presumed that deceased placed a bottle containing carbolic acid to her mouth, intending to poursomeinto her tootli, and by some means or other some passed into the'throat. The doctor stated that she did not swallow the acid, as at first supposed, but it lodged in the throat and affected the brain.

LIKENED TO A LEADENED BALL. PECULIAR CASE OF A COX- TRACTOR. Mr Larry Foran, a contractor and ganger, of Kerosene Bay, North Sydney, to a reporter from the. Sydney 'Worker,' who questioned him as to his recovery from a wearisome illness by-taking Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People, said : 'As I am well known, I may say, all over the colony, I hope what I am about to say will be.the means of saving other people from suffering as I did. 1 am working for the Government now at Folly Point, and have the control of a large number of men, and as it's almost time for me to start for the job I shan't be able to give you much more than the bare facts of my case. Mine was what you might call an in-andout illness. Some days I was well enough to do a bit of work, and some days I wasn't able to walk to the job, and sometimes I was too bad to leave the house at all. I suffered from indigestion and liver complaint. After eating, my food use to lie like a leaden ball on my chest for hours befo...
