Towers Pastoral Society. (From the MINER.) [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 25 April 1891
Towers Pastoral Society. (From the MUTER.) THE postponement of the Towers Pastoral Association's Show, which has had to be made in consequence of the disturbances in the country, caused by the men now on strike in the western parts of the colony, is one of the first inconveniences that has been felt through the attitude as sumed by the so-called workers in the bush, and it is to be especially re gretted as it involves a breach of the agreement made between the Towers and Townsville Clubs as to alternate shows. The cause of the postpone ment is not far to look for. It is the same cause that is making business stagnant, and everything in the country come to a standstill, namely, the Shearers' Strike, and until the promoters of that precious movement are brought to see the folly of the action they are taking it will be quite impossible to briog about a normal condition of things. The loss to the district through the usual annual show not being he'd is much greater than might be imagine...
The "Courier" on the Situation. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 25 April 1891
The " Courier" ou tflie Situation. THERE is not muck need for a Parlia mentary inquiry into the causes of the present distress, for they are too obvious. Yet a not inconsiderable percentage of in telligent persons in the community are so liopelessly astray on this matter that no evi dence extracted by the most costly Royal Commission would convince them of their error. It is held by such persons that, the distress is wholly due to capitalistic selfish hobs. They point to Sir S. W. Griffith as a commanding figure heroically demanding for the workers their due share in the profits of labor, and they regard property j as robbery. Because a few young women j work long hours in towns for inadequate wages, it is held by such reasoners that the j shearers are to be applauded for refusing work at a pound a day during the season; and because there is no profit to the em ployer of labor at current rates of wages, and only one-half the workers in the country are employed, therefore wages ought...

Hugliendeu. WITH THE CHARTERS TOWERS COMPANIES AT HUGHENDEIT. As I thouglit, the weather changed to very stormy, and shows signs of continuing. This is rather a serious matter for us, as the soil here is of a vejy sticky black character, and comes up on one's boots in pounds, malringr walking a very difficult feat indeed. We are liking advantage of a fine interval to put down roadways of ashes around our impro visad barracks, not a bit too soon, for as I write, a heavy shower, which has been, threatening all the afternoon, has commenced to fall. A commodious guard house has been put up, in front of which our sentries will walk out * their lonely night watches. 5he Government has conveyedit& thanks to the men on duty in this district both through the officers and the Police Magistrate.

Nearly everyone would proceed to ? powder the ore And wash it, and, as * rah*, this simple process cannot be improved upon, save and except in the case of silver oreB, and for that I will give yon Mr. Cjj H- Aaron's test, as given in his "Practical Treatise " on testing and working - silver ores. Mr. Aaron says: &lt;'The ore should be ground fine, and then a few ounees areniixed with about one-tenth of its weight of salt, and one-twentieth of copperas. This is placed in ao old frying-pan and heated gently, so long as asmell of J burning sulphur can be noticed, the ma sr. being starred witii a thin bar of iron all the time. ^ After all the sulphur has been driven off, the heat is increased for a few minutes...
