Advertiser's special reporter, accompanying the directors and party to the Baker's Creek gold mine, wires that the report that the mine had been jumped is entirely without foundation. It ap- pears that there has been a trivial dispute regarding a machinery site leased from the adjoining claim. Instead of the claim being jumped, everything is w»ll at the mine, which is being opened in a system- atic manner. An additional 10 head of stampers are on the ground ready for erection, and arrangements are being made for the provision of steam power sufficient for 50 head of stampers. These arrangements are nearly completed. In all, 180 men are employed on the .nine.

Buggy Capsize. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 19 March 1889
Buggy Capsize. YESTERDAY afternoon while Mr. Edward Martin, a young man in the employ of Messrs. Ford and Callagan, bf this town, waa driving a buggy round the corner by Coombe's Hotel from Sulphide-street into Argent-street, he took the vehicle too close to the footpath, with the result that it capsized, and he and a male friend were thrown to- the ground with what appeared to be considerable violence. The friend, however, soon showed that he was not hurt ; but Mr. Martin was some- what slower in coming to himself, and as it was feared that he might have sustained some serious injury, he was taken into the hotel and Dr. Bennett was sent for. Upon the arrival of the doctor, however, it was found that Mr. Martin had fortunately sustained nothing more dam- aging than some scratches on the face. The capsize was complete, and the occupants of the vehicle have every reason to congratnlate themselves upon their escape with unbroken limbs and whole bodies.

Then two publicans went into the magic circle to wipe off a grievance with the gloves, and one of the most excruciatingly funny exhibitions that ha» been seo a here for some time took place. It was a case of " Brandy" versus Whiskey," and the way "Brandy" caracolled round the stage was a sight to be remembered. " Whiskey" almost tied himself in a knot in his endeavors to annihilate his foo. Every face in the audience waa expanded to its fullest ex- tent when the gloves were thrown off. "Brandy" claiming the battle as his own. Then two others had a wind cutting match, but as they fell all over the floor, and cuddled, and palmed each other like two cross-bred Kanakas at a bo...
Barring the Press. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 19 March 1889
Barring the Press. ME. SYLVESTER BROWNE, who in addition to being a director of the Junction end other Barrier mining companies, is very largely interested as a shareholder in many mines, ha» announced to the reporter of a contemporary that all reporters will be excluded in future from all properties in which he is interested. It is to be presumed, however, that Mr. Browne is not the supreme power in all the companies in which he> holds shares; and, as all shareholders do not happen to have the same peculiar way of thinking that Mr. Sylvester Browne is possessed of, it is just possible that even he may have to cry small. It ia understood that it is Mr. Browne's belief that all information respecting mines should first be announced by the manager to the directors, by whom it should ba made known to the share- holders. It is, however, a part of the BABRIEB MINER'S creed that all directors are not honest, and that, in some cases, there would be little use of the ordinary shareholder...
