CONCENTRATES. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 14 March 1889
CONCENTRATES. &nbsp; Senior Sergeant Saunders is to be slaughtering inspector to the municipality without salary. A barren title. The municipal council will meet on Thursdays in future. The smoke stack of Block 11, now that the two smelters are at work, sends forth a volume of smoke rivalling the smaller chimneys of the big mine. The police had several other charges of larceny as a bailee against Mappin, had the cases heard fallen through. The Stannary T.M Co, is to be wound up. They have a credit balance of £469. An assay of stone found near Lismore (N.S W.) went 19ozs. gold and 130ozs. silver. The residents on Reserve 3075 are to be cleared off. Alderman Williams thinks this resolution hard and unwise. Not much "gas" expended at the council meeting last night. The alder- men present mostly sat like Quakers waiting for the spirit to move them, or, to use another simile, like extinct volcanoes. The slow rate at which the municipal valuators are proceeding with their work was...
Is he Sane? [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 14 March 1889
Is he Sane? &nbsp; This question, propounded in last night's MINER with regard to William Henry Davis, who yesterday accused himself of &nbsp; having poisoned a man, is not yet satis- factorily settled. Davis was brought before Mr. W. P. Tompson, J.P., in the local court, deemed to be of unsound mind. Constable Nolan stated that yes- terday afternoon he arrested the man at &nbsp; Long's boarding-house on suspicion of his being of unsound mind. Davis then said that he had poisoned a man named "George" on Sturts Meadows Station, about 18 months ago, and that " George " was there buried by the station hands. He also said that he felt as if he could fly in the air, and that he had sold his house to the devil. Richard Long, boarding- &nbsp; house keeper in Oxide-street, stated that Davis had been living in his house during the last nine days. Davis said he had poisoned a man on Sturt's Meadows sta- tion,and could not rest quiet in his mind, in consequence ...
Municipal Council. ORDINARY FORTNIGHTLY MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 14 March 1889
Municipal Council. ORDINARY FORTNIGHTLY MEETING. The municipal council held its usual fortnightly meeting last night. The Mayor occupied the chair, and the other members present were Aldermen Chapple, Ryan, Creedon, Williams, Thomas, and Delamore. The officers of the council were also in attendance, and there was a sprinkling of the general public, which dwindled down to one or two individuals &nbsp; before the close of the meeting. The minutes of the last ordinary meeting and of the special meeting which discussed the water supply question were read and adopted without comment. The town clerk then read the outward correspond- ence; and in reference to a letter written to various municipalities asking for in- formation as to the laying of tramways in the streets, Alderman Williams sug- gested that the Municipal Association, in Sydney, to which the council belonged, should be applied to as to the terms and concessions usually made in such cases. The town clerk said he would w...

SYDNEY, Thursday. &nbsp; At a general committee meeting of the Queen's Fund, it was announced that £16,000 had in all been collected,all of which had been put out at interest of 5 and 5½ per cent. A bill will be submitted to &nbsp; Parliament for the incorporation of the Fund, providing for the utilising of the money for the relief of distressed ladies in this colony, and vesting the management in a council of 25 women and three trustees.
Sub-letting Babies. SYDNEY, Friday. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 15 March 1889
Sub-letting Babies. SYDNEY, Friday. &nbsp; Annie Kate Andrews was charged &nbsp; before Mr. Fisher at the Sydney Water Police Court with abandoning a child &nbsp; given into her custody. The bench decided that the child having died they would dismiss the information. The police, however, have nearly twenty other cases of a similar character im- plicating Andrews, who is a young married woman. The modus operandi appeared to be to get from five to ten pounds with each child, whom she would sub-let for a few shillings per week, vanishing herself after a time, and throw- ing the child upon the mercy of the sub- lessee. &nbsp;
Suckled on Poison. SYDNEY, Friday. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 15 March 1889
Suckled on Poison. SYDNEY, Friday. After taking a dose of chlorodyne, Mrs. Burgess, a resident of Dugong, suckled her baby. The next morning the latter showed symptoms of poisoning by a narcotic drug. During the day the infant died, and the doctor certified that death was the result of the chlorodyne, but he freed the mother from all blame. &nbsp;

The North Mine. THE LODE PINCHED OUT. [BY OUR MINING REPORTER.] [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 15 March 1889
The North Mine. THE LODE PINCHED OUT. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; [By our Mining Reporter.] &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Yesterday I reported fully upon the &nbsp; North Broken Hill mine, and I then &nbsp; explained that things were looking very &nbsp; bad at the 200ft. level. I also mentioned &nbsp; &nbsp; that a crosscut had been put in for a few feet and some galena struck. The work was continued, the galena was driven through, and a horse of country was met with. This proved to be only a couple of feet thick, however, and, when more galena ore put in an appearance, the prospects of the mine looked decidedly brighter, and all concerned were jubilant. However, this morning, at about seven &nbsp; o'clock, I paid the mine a visit of inspection, and, as I had timed my visit so as to catch the manager and the underground " boss" going down, I was enabled to make a good and careful survey of...
Self Vindication. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 15 March 1889
Self Vindication. &nbsp; &nbsp; THE sanitary inspector, in reference to certain remarks made by Alderman Wil- liams at the council meeting on Wednes- day night, states that he has frequently visited Mulga Hill of late, and has no knowledge of the particular prevalence &nbsp; of fever in that neighborhood. He further states that Smith Bros' slaughter- yard was removed from the vicinity on January 23 last, and that he saw that the premises were then cleaned off as effectu- ally as a slaughter-yard can be rendered clean; but, he adds, it is well known that &nbsp; long after a slaughter-yard has been re- moved, an offensive odor will rise from the &nbsp; blood which has soaked into the ground, which nuisance cannot be got rid of with- out bodily removing the top soil." You &nbsp; &nbsp; may break, you may shatter the vase if you will, but the scent of the roses will cling round it still." &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp...

THE TIMES CASE CONCLUDED. LONDON, Thursday. The Times case against the Par- &nbsp; nellites before the Judical Com- &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; mission is concluded. Sir Charles &nbsp; Russell, the leading counsel for &nbsp; the Parnellites, announced that he &nbsp; would call no less than 400 witnesses to &nbsp; rebut the charges which had been made by the Times against his clients. Wil- liam O'Brien and E. Harrington, Ms.P., two Irish prisoners, have been released from gaol to give evidence, they guaranteeing to abstain from entering &nbsp; upon any agitation during the time they are at liberty. &nbsp; &nbsp;
Self-Accused of Murderer. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 15 March 1889
Self-Accused of Murderer. WITH reference to the man named Davis, who is self-accused of the murder of his &nbsp; mate, and who is now in Broken Hill, under observation to test his sanity, Wil- liam Walton Jones, residing at the Miners' Arms Hotel, has informed the police that he was on Sturts Meadows Station at the time George Calderwood was found dead about 18 months ago. Calderwood was a boundary rider, and was found dead near a wire fence. His horse was much cut about, and it is supposed that the rider's neck was broken by a fall consequent upon riding into the fence. Jones says &nbsp; that as far as he knew Davis had not seen &nbsp; Calderwood for a week beforo the fatal- ity. Davis then occupied the same tent with a man named Miller, or Muller, now in Broken Hill. Davis, at times since he has delivered himself up to the local &nbsp; police, has protested that he poisoned &nbsp; Calderwood, but Jones' statement would &nbsp; seem to...
