The property known as the Callion is a 30 acre lease situate about 70 miies N.W. of Coolgardie ia the locality known as Ullartint; The find was made some months ago by Messrs J. Speakman, Cooke and Lukin, 0r Fremantle. Amongst some cf tbe experts who have visited the property waa the repre- sentative of Messrs. Bewick, Moreing & Co   who, it ia stated, pronounced it one of the best and most consistent battery shows in the colony. There are three reefs on the pro. perry, the principal of which has an average   width of 15ft and bulk sample* taken all over tile reef gave a return of the ton. The second reef has an average width of Sft. Oin. aad gives a return of over 1 1/2 ozs. to the ton. The prioe that has bean agreed apon for tha sale of the property is, it ia stated, the largest that has been paid for any ens show outside the Londonderry, bat the anvtant ha» not been diseased. Mr. E. G. Price is the secretary to the eyndioate.
