THE DISCOVERER OP SOUTHERN

CROSS.

!" To THE EDITOB. j

SIB,-As the matter of rewards for the ! , discovery of payable goldfields in Western

Aostralia is still in abeyance, wilt you kindly % allow me to publicly announce my claim as 7 the discoverer of the " Southern Cross " .' goldfield. When leaving the (rolden Valley

*? on au exploring and prospecting expedition

in May, 1888,1 was accompanied by Messrs. Faulkner and Parry, who were not associated with me ; bat as both of them were entirely innocent of any know-

ledge of bashoraft they asked permission: to follow er accompany me, which I granted.. . Exploring my way south, I ultimately arrived

at what ia now called Southern Cross,and pros ; peoting around found gold-bearing quarts on

the site of the claim known as the " Phoenix.' Having thus accomplished the objeot of my expedition, I returned to the valley and took. - ont Sisely, and the olaim was pegged on

bebau* of the syudioate wo represented.

The Southern Cross may now oome, I suppose, under the denomination of á payable \ goldfield, and my olaim as its discoverer

thus simply stated-is generally acknow '." lodged en the field, and I fearlessly challenge

anyone to npset it. ' '

Yours, Ac,
