Husband and Wife. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 18 March 1889
Husband and Wife. JESSIE BENNETT did not appear in the &nbsp; local court this morning to prosecute her case against her husband Thomas Ben- nett for assault, and the case was conse- quently struck out. This man has recently been released from imprisonment, and when before the court last week on a charge of bad language, stated that when he returned to his house after this compulsory absence, he found his wife in the amorous companionship of another man, which naturally moved the husband to wrath. The police stated this morning that the wife did not want to press the charge of assault.
STRAY NOTES. OUR MILK SUPPLY. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 18 March 1889
STRAY NOTES. - OUR MILK SUPPLY. i SOME time ago a good deal was, written havingreferehce to the specialappointment" of a municipal officer to inspect dairies and milk supplies, with power to call to.^ his assistance a reognised chemist or analyst. Nothing, however, appears to have been done in the matter, which is of such vast importance that reference to it again is not only excusable; but absolutely a duty: Possibly the dairies and yards of Broken Hill may be the personification of clean- liness. Stonie of them I am led to believe.: ar.e ; but theAOWpliments regardingTothers are sp numerous and corroborative that even the. moat charitable cannot but conclude that they are not all that can be desired. Li other caaes complaints are made that the water with which the cows are supplied is polluted to a degree which one shudders to think of. Moreover some of the milk, or rather the article sold as milk, is palpably an adulteration. Heaven knows with what horror it is adulterated ! Taki...
Leniently Dealt With. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 18 March 1889
Leniently Dealt With. MR. GOWER P.M., presided in the police &nbsp; &nbsp; court this morning, and several indivi- duals were brought before him, charged with having been found drunk by the police in the public streets. William Nicholson was found lying helpless in Argent-street on Saturday night and having had the stupidity of his conduct pointed out to him, was sent about his business with the admonition not to get drunk again. An elderly man named James Williams, who had previously &nbsp; offended, was discovered in a similar &nbsp; plight on Saturday night, and he also was discharged with a caution. Richard Crowder, on bail, pleaded guilty to having been drunk in Iodide-street. He ex- pressed contrition, and the bench said 'I'll let you go this time, but take care &nbsp; you don't come before me again.' Joseph Antonio could not say anything in defence of himself when charged with having been drunk and disorderly in Argent-street yesterday,...

Trinopoulos, to whose skill I was indebted for my continu- ance in the land of the - living,-a doubtful blessing, I am sometimes inclined to think. He was, dark, very dark, with the big lustrous eyes that are so markedly typical of bis race. His hands were small and well-shapen, like a woman's, and in many respects he was very womanly, ? notably in a somewhat prudish delicacy that in so skilful a- .surgeon was remarkable, and in an irritability that was sometimes almost comical to see. He would tend and dress horrible gaping wounds on a quie^ tíáSheás-like way which many a less^nracös...

St. Patrick's Day. HIBERNIAN SPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 18 March 1889
St. Patríck^sCDay. ¿ HIBERNIAN SPORTS/ Sx. PATRICK'S DÁT ia peculiarly sacred to Irishmen..:: On that day they/almost to a man, put on their holiday attire, and, having sported the little piece of green, make their way to some trysting place, and there , indulge themselves as only Irishmen, -out on their national holiday can: ' This year, however, matters became alittlèmixed. St. Patrick'sDay'occurred on the Sabbath, and "so the commémoration of the day was split up between Saturday last and Monday (to-day). The sons of the Emerald Isle who sojourn in dusty Broken Hill resolved to oelebrate the event on the Monday ; and so therejoicings are taking place. For several weeks past the Hibernian Society, headed by their energetic secretary (Mr. O'Donnell), have been bu>y arranging a lengthy programme of athletic sports, preceded by a proces- sion and followed by a dance. Unfortun- ately the dust of Broken Hill has no respect for persons or days ; not even did the clouds pf fine dust r...

A Dwelling Bunted, t ! k :WOMÁÑ;INJÜRED. I FOB some time put thootown has been blessed with an almost complete immunity-, from fires, and it.almost seemed,that tho': alarma and : scares . of conflagrations so frequ nt a month or two ago, had quite become things of the past. On Saturday night, however, a dwelling-house was completely 'destroyed by .this dread ¿agency, and the only occupant-a female -as only rescued with difficulty, and was' then found to be^ao. much burned aa^to necessitate her removal tc the hospital: The alarm was given at a quarter past -ll o'clock, and at that time a fireman who. happened to be in ^A'rgeht-street not far from the spot saw- flames* arising from a tenement in Crystal-street at the back. He rushed to the spot and found that 's small house was .on-fire, and then gave; the alarm. Meanwhile, pending the ar- rival of the fire brigade, the usual crowd which quickly gathers on such occasions, made such attempts at extinction as were possible under the cir...

ELMORE MURDER. THE EXECUTION. PROTESTING HIS INNOCENCE. (FROM OUR SPECIAL REPORTER.) SANDHURST, Monday. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 18 March 1889
THE EXECUTION. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; PROTESTING HIS INNOCENCE. &nbsp; (FROM OUR SPECIAL REPORTER.) &nbsp; SANDHURST, Monday. This morning, at 10 o'clock, William &nbsp; &nbsp; Harrison was executed in the Sandhurst gaol for the wilful murder of John Dug- &nbsp; gan, at Elmore, a few miles out of Sand- hurst, in May last. The victim has &nbsp; undergone two trials. At the first he was skilfully defended by Dr. Quick, and the jury could not agree after being &nbsp; locked up for a long time. However, a &nbsp; second trial was undertaken and a vast number of witnesses were examined. Eventually it resulted in the returning of a verdict of wilful murder, principally through the evidence of and that procured by Detective-Sergeant Mahony and &nbsp; Sainsbury. Harrison, ever since it became known that the Executive, while mitigating the sentence of death passed upon four others, refused to reverse...

THE GOAL SITE, &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; TO THE EDITOR OF THE BARRIER MINER. Sir - As the fat of our autocratic Government has gone forth, the site of the new gaol is not to be altered. Hap- pily we live not in the days of the Medea and Persians. The people are the power, and our elected lawgivers are relied upon for impartial administration. Therefore we residents off Wolfram-street distinctly and emphatically request our aldermen not to rest ; let them build what they like on reserve 3082 so long as Wolfram &nbsp; &nbsp; street is opened through to the rail- way. Certainly someone has blundered by not first having , carried this street through. At present we have no other way than climbing over rocky hills to get to the railway station ; and if Wolfram street is opened through it will be the &nbsp; best entrance to any part of the town. We are, etc &nbsp; WOOLFRAM STREETE...

As I was the person who men- tioned the matter to your correspondent, I must in justice to the local officer state that my complaint was about the lax manner in which business was conducted at the head'office.
