NEW LANCI 1LOGAN -AINE. .-.:WASH CARRIES- RICH- COLD. HALF - A- PENN'YWEIGHT FROM HALF A DISH. SHARES RISE RAPIDLY. THE FUTURE OF THE GREAT DEEP LEAD ASSURED. " It's a long lane that has no turn ing," and at length, after many years' of strenuous effort and the eipenditure of -something - approaching £200,000, there appears to be no room for doubt hut that the future of the great lead below the Hopkins plateau, and conse quently of the prosperity of Ararat as a great mining centre, are now assured. On Saturday the wash was tapped in the new intermediary drive, and from the first sample, only half a dishful, half a pennyweight of gold was ob tained. The wash is very strong, two heavy white waterworn quartz stones being displaced in driving in a top lath, and this work brought the small quantity of dirt obtained. The mana ger, Mr W. H. Toole, at once came in and the following report was tele graphed by him to the office in Mel bourne : Heavy wash on back laths. Got very small sample o...

SOUTH AFRICAN PAPERS. . ONLY ONE .ANTI-GOVERNMENT ORGAN. : BAIN'8 BODYGUARD, FINED. -CAPETOWN, Sunday Night. ,Practically the whole of' the South African newspapers have 'upheld the action of General smuts in deporting the strike leaders. The "Vreend," of Bloemfontein, roundly attacks the Go vernment, and blames them for their actions. The impression that Mr Kendall, a prominent Laborite, had been deported with the other leaders, turns out to be wrong. Mr Kendall has so far evaded capture. Members of the bodyguard of Mr J. T. Bain, the Labor leader, who was besieged in the Trades-Hall, were pro secuted to-day. Fourteen of them were fined £15 eacn, or one month's impri sonment, and the ousers -were dis charged. _

OBITUARY. MR MATTHEW BAKER. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 10 February 1914
OBITUARY. MR MATTHEW BAKER. Death removed from our midst yes- terday morning a well known resident of Barkly street in the person of Mr Matthew Baker, who passed away at the age of seventy-four years. The de- ceased who was a native of Somerset- shire, England, was born in 1840. He left England in March, 1857, and land- ed in Adelaide in July of the same year. He took up land at Redcamp, Glen- burnie, but after staying there a few years he removed to Horsham, being one of the early settlers there. Then for a considerable number of years he carried on the calling of a farm- er in the Jung district, and having been successful in his undertaking, he retired and came to reside in Ararat about six years ago. He was then a widower, his wife having died some years previously. After being in Ara- rat for about a couple of years, he mar- ried Mrs Warren. Deceased did not take any prominent part in any of the local institutions, beyond being elected chairman of the first branch of the People'...
OUR MELBOURNE LETTER. OBITUARY FRILLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 10 February 1914
OUR MELBOURNE LETTER. OBITUARY FRILLS. Readers of newspapers must often wonder when they read death notices in the advertisement columns how it is that such very important people have been allowed to live unioticed and un- honored in the community so long. Quite recently the advertisement clerk of a big metropolitan daily took in a long death notice, in which it was set out that the dear departed was the son of so and so, the grandson of so and so, and apparently he and his immediate ancestors were people of very con- siderable importance. So much was the sub-editor ot the journal in ques- tion impressed by the advertisement, that a reporter was told off the next day to hunt up the career of the de- ceased great man, and write a para- graph about it. Alas, for the founda- tions of human glory. The captains whose names were so plentifully be- sprinkled in the obituary advertise- ment, turned out to have been cap- tains of shifts in mines, with the ex- ception of one of them, who had ...

MINING INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 12 February 1914
dI~£2 ING fTELL1G2ENgE, The Cathcart Gold Mines lia-e... de -lared their. twenty-thiid dividend of 1/ per share, payable 24th February. The amount to the credit of the. accounts is -about £3,000; and the dividend will re quire £2,600, so that the amount re nmaining will be between £400 and £500. Including this distribution, the total amount returned to snareholders to date is over £03,000, and it is not unlikely that some further return will be made before the payable wash is exhausted. Langi Logan stocks again accounted for a fair volume of business in the Melbourne share market on Tuesday; though the turnover was not so heavy as on the previous day. A report from the New Langi Logan mine was receiv ed, stating that wash was still on the back of laths, and a small sample indi cated' a value of 2 ozs per fathom. Share prices touched 35/3 in the morn ing, and then eased to 34/6, the day's turnover representing about 2000 shares. Rates for the simaller-priced stocks moved on similar l...
PLAN OF PROCEDURE. NO DEBATE ON ADDRESS-IN REPLY. MOTION OF CENSURE. FOR NOT APPEALING TO PEOPLE. LONDON, Tuesday. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 12 February 1914
PLAN OF PROCEDURE. NO DEBATE ON ADDRESS-IN. REPLY. MOTION OF CENSURE. FOR NOT APPEALING TO PEOPLE. LONDON, Tuesday. With a view of emphasising the gravity of the Ulster crisis it is the intention of the Opposition to' aban don the customary., general discussion on the Address-in-Reply. Mr Long will instead move an amendment chal lenging the Government for its refusal to submit grave constitutional changes for a decision of the electors at a gene ral electiqon. In Tory circles the question is being discussed whether the Lords should amend the Army Annual Bill in order to prevent the use of the army for the coercion of Ulster. The "Daily Chronicle" says. that Mr Asquith will speak after Mr Long, and that the Prime Minister will adopt a conciliatory attitude towards Ulster. Messrs Redmond, Dillon, and O'Con nor hold that the concessions ought to be announced late in the session, and the Opposition should pay the price' by undertakiig to facilitate the settlement of. the Irish question....
NEW LANGI LOGAN MINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 12 February 1914
NEW LANGI LOGAN MINE. Progress with the wash workings of the New Langi Logan mine must neces sarily be gradual, and that fact is be ing appreciated by those interested in the claim. Latest news from the mine was contained il a telegralh received at Melbourne from the mine manager on Tuesday, reading as follows : - "Heavy was, still on back laths; got small sample with difficulty; should es timate value at 2 ozs per fathom ; wa ter about same; satisfactory." The rate at which the wash is coming down into the drive is slow, on account of the way the lead has been entered, and each small advance of the laths into the wash means the removal of a good deal of bedrock, so that there is not likely to be much more than a foot of wash in the face before next week. Recent results, however, both in regard to the condition of the wash and its value, have removed a weight from the minds of those controlling the com pany's operations, and attention has oeen given to the question of opening up the...
HOME RULE. SIR H. PLUNKETT'S VIEW. CIVIL WAR OR OUTRAGE. TRIAL TERM SUGGESTED. LONDON, Tuesday. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 12 February 1914
. HOMnE RULE.` SIR H. PLUNKETT'S VIEW. CIVIL WAR OR OUTRAGE. TRIAL TERM ..SUGGESTED. LONDON, Tuesday. Sir Horace Plunkett, after confiden tial interviews with the Ulster leaders, states that: it is criminal to say that the Ulstermen are bluffing. He added.: -"It is my firm belief that if the ilome Rule Bill is passed without sub Stantial modlifcation, there will be civil wir or sectarian outrages,- which wIill probably lead to retaliation." Sir Horace Plunkett proposed that Protestant Ulster should accept the Bill conditionally that a plebiscite shall de cide at the end of a fixed period whe ther Ulster shall continue to be subject to the Irish Parliament.
