CORRESPONDENCE. WHAT HAS BECOME OF OUR CRICKET CLUB. [TO THE EDITOR] [Newspaper Article] — The Pilbarra Goldfield News — 30 July 1897
CORHESPONDENQE. WHAT HA8 BECOME OF CUR CRICKET CLUB1 [to the editor] Sib,—The aliove question is asked nearly every day in the week, by a few of our sporting folk, and at times the answer, " It is defuuct," is given. If it is so, it seems a great pity, in this instance, "to let a sleeping dog lie," and I think somebody should at once take steps with a view of having it re constructed, as cricket is a game that should be fostered and kept alive all over the colony. It is the only pastime that we can enjoy in this part of the conn try, and we, who pretend to rank as sportsmen of Marble Bar, should do our utmost to prevent our cricket club from lieing shipwrecked in the storm that at present surrounds it. In con clusion, I would suggest a meeting be at once called for the purpose of re constructing" both tho cricketers and the club. Thanking you in anticipation. I BO), A LOVER OF CRICKET.

There is one instance at Marble Bar, of a company that lias ex pended nearly £20,000 in erecting machinery that is always going bang, and keeps an engineer fully employed effecting repairs. Shafts have also l»een sunk on the sides of hills, where there was not the remotest possibility of get ting water, whilst the work done in the direction of opening up the mine ...
