The Glenelg Railways. ADELAIDE, Friday. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 15 March 1889
The Glenelg Railways. ADELAIDE, Friday. &nbsp; The Glenelg Railway dispute has now &nbsp; entered upon another phase. A public meeting of ratepayers was held last even- ing when an endeavor was made to over- ride the poll debarring the company from using the streets, wherein to run their trains without paying £250 per annum. The meeting was rowdy, and decided to uphold the corporation in their demands upon the railway company.

Browne and J. Considine. A small fire occurred on the Hill early this morning. The damage is put at 35s, and it is gravely stated that the property was not insured. Neverthless the mine whistle was long and loudly sounded. The Hon. J. C. F. Johnson, South Australian Minister of Education, ar- rived in Broken Hill this morning. He is stay- ing at the Grand Hotel...
An Explanation. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BARRIER MINER. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 15 March 1889
An Explanation. &nbsp; TO THE EDITOR OF THE BARRIER MINER. Sir,—In reference of your report of the &nbsp; charge of larceny against Duffy and Cassidy, I would ask to add a few lines &nbsp; explaining my position. I arrived in town with my cheque, and, of course, found many friends. Amongst them was one Cassidy, who took a great interest in &nbsp; me, and was very anxious as to my move- ments. He asked for 2s. 6d. to buy him- &nbsp; self a shirt, but I, having some in my &nbsp; &nbsp; swag, gave him one, or rather told him to get it and bring the swag to my lodgings, which he did. That is all I know about the swag being opened, and you may rest assured I did not want to make it heavier. &nbsp; I had nothing to do with the opening or closing of it, and never opened it since &nbsp; leaving Eurowie. I "treated" this obliging stranger all through the town, &nbsp; and thought him to be a true friend ; in &...
The North Mine. ADELAIDE, Friday. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 15 March 1889
The North Mine. ADELAIDE, Friday. &nbsp; The telegram concerning the very &nbsp; unsatisfactory condition of the North mine, posted at the MINER branch office this morning, created an immense sensation on Exchange. Further information is eagerly awaited. However, it would seem that prior to the receipt of news from this source, a prominent broker had received information, as he was selling all the morning. Later on very heavy transactions were recorded.
Hospital Meeting. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 15 March 1889
Hospital, Meeting. THe usual monthly meeting of the hospital committee was held at the Grand Hotel last night, Mr. J. J. Williams, the chairman, presiding. There were also present Dr.-Groves and Thompson, and Messrs. Abbott, M.Henry Clark, H. M. Bristowe and Christmas. The chairman &nbsp; apologised for the absence of the Rev. Keith Mackay, and Mr. Abbott for that of Mr. Justin M'Carthy. The chairman announced that owing to the sudden &nbsp; &nbsp; resignation of Mr. Rudyerd, the secretary, he had appointed Mr. Thomas Webb secretary pro tem. The minutes of the last meeting having been confirmed, the correspondence was considered. In reply to the secretary of the forthcoming National Fair to be held in Sydney in aid of the hospitals of the colony, the secre- tary was instructed to forward all the necessary information in regard to the local institution. A telegram from Mr. B. Rudyerd, in Sydney, stated that he had handed over to the proper authorities the aged...
Block 14. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 15 March 1889
Block 14. THE following is the return from this mine for the two 8-ton furnaces, less one furnace for three days :— &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Ore treated ... 491 tons Lead produced ... 125 " Silver produced ... 13,671 ozs. The amount of silver produced last week was 10,363ozs., so that the starting of the additional smelter has resulted in a gain of 33080zs. This can hardly be regarded as unsatisfactory considering that the second furnace was only put into full swing on Sunday last. &nbsp;
The Water Question. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 15 March 1889
The Water Question. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BARRIER MINER. Sir,—I am pleased to see that Mr. J. J. Williams , has written a long, letter in reply to myself. I may be permitted to notice that part of his letter that refers to what I have previously said. I am sure it will not do the water schemes any harm for Mr. Williams and myself to discuss their merits. Mr. Williams refers to my "wholesale slaughter,'' and says that I have used some extraordinary arguments, based apparently on a false construction, altogether at variance with what took place at the council meeting or with the report in the press. Where is the variance with the report in the MINER? Mr. Williams has not pointed it out. He refers first to my reference to the Mayor &nbsp; moving the principal resolutions, and says he fails to see any thing to complain about. I never said a word about what Mr. Williams saw in the action of the Mayor to complain about or otherwise. I said that probably Broken Hill was going to est...
CONCENTRATES. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 15 March 1889
CONCENTRATES. South Australian railway revenue for past week shows a decrease of £1771 com- &nbsp; pared with that of the corresponding week &nbsp; of last year. &nbsp; The Mt. Gambier (S.A.) show has been held during the past two days. The prize &nbsp; wheat weighed 67lbs per bushel. In other respects the show was satisfactorily. The divorce of ex-King Milan of &nbsp; Servia, from Queen Natalie is to be an- &nbsp; &nbsp; nulled. &nbsp; Thirteen tons of postage stamps were &nbsp; &nbsp; sold last year in America. &nbsp; The Silverton hospital has only £16 to its credit. The Jubilee S.M. Company have de- cided to apply for a suspension order. It is probable that the next Circuit Court will be held in the Carrington Hall. &nbsp; The latest regarding the copper market is that it is excitedly speculative. &nbsp; The tin market is quiet and steady. Australian is quoted at £95 10s. Mini...
STRAY NOTES. THE COPPER MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 15 March 1889
STRAY NOTES. &nbsp; THE COPPER MARKET. THE copper market is gradually righting itself after the recent partial collapse, and the price of the metal in 24 hours has advanced between £4 and £5 per ton. &nbsp; During last week the Société des Metaux, or, as it is better known, the French copper syndicate, was reported to be tottering. The London Standard, which by-the-bye has latterly been very incorrect &nbsp; on such matters, even announced that the copper bubble had burst, which was &nbsp; synonymous with declaring that the operations of the syndicate were sus- pended. Hence this great fall from £70 &nbsp; to £53. Later cablegrams, are however, &nbsp; most reassuring. Instead of totally collapsing, the syndicate has apparently, in the eyes of the commercial giants of Europe, so prosperous a future before it that they came to the rescue at what no doubt was a critical time- a time when, unless prosperity could have been dis- tinctly see...
The " Passenger" Station. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 15 March 1889
The " Passenger" Station. IT seems somewhat absurd to have a rail- way station in a central part of Broken &nbsp; Hill put to little or no use. Passengers &nbsp; arriving at 8.10 a.m. or taking their de- &nbsp; parture at 7.10 p.m. are the sole benefi- ciaries thereof. The unlucky individual who has to take his leave of the place at midnight has to travel with his impedi- menta through the ocean of dust which &nbsp; lies between the town and the tramway &nbsp; goods station before he can shake it from off his feet. He, also, who arrives in the &nbsp; small hours of the morning finds himself set down at a point where accommoda- tion is almost unattainable. Then, in the matter of parcels, it might have before now dawned on the intelligence of the tramway officials that an office could be advantageously opened at the Sulphide- street depot for the receipt and delivery of goods of a light description. The Tramway Company have had one of th...
