SECOND DAY. March 2. JLiie rlcmicgton lairn and course looked beautifully green and refreshing to-day, when. the racing was resumed. In the Australian Cup badladecn and Sailor Boy were scratched. There were a dozen starters, The Officer being the actual favourite before leaving the post. A grand race resulted, in which Coil, who was well handled by Harris, succeeded in winning by a long neck from Preston. Last year's winner was heartily cheered as he returned to the scale. Much disap pointment was expressed by the backers of Bloodshot and The Officer, who were never dangerous, lite results were as follows:— Hphdi.es. About 2| miles.

Fine weather prevailed, and the attendance was ! very good. The racing prodmed one great Keusalion in the downfall of Newbaren in the St Ledger Stakes. In this race there were three starters, and Newbaren at the post showed no sign of lameness. Mr. S. G. Cook was confident about The Officer's chances «»f winning, and he won easily. The favourite appeared greatly distressed, and sweated freely, a fall lie had pre viously receired having greatly interfered with his work. The Officer was in capital condition. The course orcr which the race was run was some 132 yards less than the one prerionsly used. Great excite ment was manifested by the crowd as the winner returned to the scale. In the New market Handicap, Carlton, from a spread eagled field, won in a common canter. Carlton started at 20 to 1. The detailed results of the racing...

ON PROGRESS COMMITTEES. The local Progress Committee is at last, we understand, about to resurrect itself from tlie slate of stnpour into which it had, apparently, fallen, aud now that the summer is almost over, we trust the members of this body will bestir themselves towards seeking out re dress for the many grievances under which not only Marble Bar, bat the whole Pilbarra Gbldfield, labours. We presume that whilst our own committee will keep a watchful eye upon the iutercsts of the Bar, it will, nevertheless, be ever ready to co operate with other similar bodies es tablished in the leading towns of this district, and collectively these organisations will work together for the common weal. The various matters deserving of the local com mittee's atttntion require no detail-, ing from us iu au article of thisj uature—they are too self-evident -,k and too long has this towu been handicapped iu attaining to its full development owing to the apparent ignorance manifested in all thiugs ...

LOCAL AND GENERAL. Tiie Mails.—A large Southern mail is expected to arrive at Marble Bar to morrow (Saturday) from Roebourne via the Western Shaw route. This repre sents the first mails containing Perth, English, and intercolonial correspondence received here for something like montli. Verily it is time the antiquated postal department were roused from its lethargy with a view to a few innova tions in keeping with the times, so far as this district is concerned, being effected. The Wkathkr. — This important topic, like the indigent elsewhere, is ever-present, and, so far as Marble Bar is concerned, at the time of writing, is all that could be desired, being compara tively cool and pleasant, the rain having apparently cleared away. On Friday evening last steady rain, preceded by a high wind from a westerly direction, set in, and continued for some hours, the fall registering 22 points. Towards the Shaw, we learn, there hare been copious downpours, one team, which arrived here on Wedn...

DISTRICT NEWS. BAMBOO CREEK. BAMBOO CREEK, March 9. [Newspaper Article] — The Pilbarra Goldfield News — 12 March 1897

DISTRICT NEWS. BAMBOO CREEK. l>noH otra own cobkesfoxdent] Bamboo Cbf.ek, March 9. Much dissatisfaction is expressed here at the irregular manner in which the mails reach Bamlioo. Certainly we have what is supposed to be a fort nightly service, but it is only supposition. For instance : though the coach arrives here regularly (weather permitting)' every fortnight, it almost invariably ! happens that it misses the steamer at Cossack—sometimes leaving a day or two l>efore the vessel arrives with the Southern mails, and as a consequence i has to travel all this distance with a few j unimportant letters from Roebourne. This is a state of affairs that surely j could ')e remedied if the postal author! | | tics were alive to the interests and con- j venience of the people of this and other j places along the mail routes. Another little matter that might, without disturbing Mr. Sholl's equilibrium, be attended to in connection with the mails is, that a weekly service could be establis...

CONDON. (Fbom ova own Cobeespoxdext.) Cox don, March .Steady ram set in here 011 hriday evening last, and continued inter mittently through the niglit. 'l'he rain kept up thence from early morning 011 Saturday till noon, and altogether 73 points fell. It was a nice soaking rain and was badly wanted, as up to that time only 15 points had fallen 111 Condon and the immediate vicinity since last July, consequently the grass hereabouts was in a very dry state.

NULLAGINE. NULLAGINE, March 4. [Newspaper Article] — The Pilbarra Goldfield News — 12 March 1897

NULLAGIXE. [FKOM OUE OTC COBBESPOXDEXT-] NuLf.AGiNK, March 4. A portion of the North-West Austra lian Gold Mines, Ltd., machinery is now en route from Condon to the Nullagine, hut the heavier portions of this equipment have as yet not arrived at that port. On account of the large quantity of machinery awaiting transit to Bamboo Creek causing a scarcity of teams, some considerable delay, it is feared, will be occasioned in the cartage of this plant, and conse quently the work of erection will !>e blocked for a corresponding period. It is a good sign, however, when one has to complain of a scarcity of teams, though it is somen hat vexatious at times. Mr. John Horrigan, the well-known prospector, after a few weeks' stay with his aforetime comrade, Mr. James Isdell, has started away to the eastward on an extended prospecting trip, and proposes to eventually work his way to wards Peak Hill, on the Murchison.

FRIDAY, MARCH 12, 1897. [Newspaper Article] — The Pilbarra Goldfield News — 12 March 1897

FRIDAY, MARCH 12. 1897. A petition is now going tlie rounds for signature, for presentation to the Postmnster-Cencral, in effect, re questing that the present coacliiug service between Marble Bar and Condon, run by private individuals, be subsidised to carry tlie mails be tween these two places. There can be no question as to the great public convenience which the inauguration of such a service would mean to the residents of this town, the outlying mining settlements, and the impor tant localities of Bamboo Creek and Nullagiue. The ruling mail arrange ments are totally inadequate to the needs of this goldfield. For example, we have now a weekly land service, which means that all mails received from the steamers at Cossack, and sorted at Hoebonrne, are forwarded from that place to tlie various postal towns thronghout Pilbarra district by road—plainly a slow and unsatis factory method, when it is taken into consideration that, roughly speaking, we "are situated 300 miles from Roebouru...
