There are no mining appliances on the
ground. There is an old shaft on the ground
before the present lessee took possession. He
had a party ready to go to work if lease
were granted. To Mr Cohen : The reef was
worked down to water level in ports. He
had the means to erect machinery. To Mr
Rymer : There was plenty of auriferous stone
above water level which he intended to try.
Richard Tretheway, a farmer whose land
adjoins the lease, deposed that no work has
been done on the lease since September, 1892.
There is plenty of stone above water level.
He was not interested in the application.
Robert Young, a carter, deposed that he was
employed to carry away the stuff from the
the land. He took away the partitions in
the shaft, the windlass, and every thing on the
to identify Mr Baynes's lease from Mr
Manning's. For the defendant Mr Cohen
said that the work had been stopped because
of the necessity for machinery. This had
been almost settled. If the lease were for-
English capital in a now part of the goldfield.
The stone was payable if the lease were near
work it. That was the reason it had previously
remained unworked for 19 years. Mr Storey
would have to employ the same number of
men as Mr Bayne, and a poor man could
not do that. Mr. Bayne was now try-
ing to form a company to work the lease.
W. W. Barker deposed that he was acting as
attorney for Mr Bayne. He believed Mr
Bayne was trying to form a company to work
the lease. The warden promised to report to
the Minister. The application of George M.
Watson for a prospecting area of 54 acres at
Ellesmere on private property, was heard.
Applicant deposed that he had come to an
agreement with the owner, Mr A. O’Keefe.
There was no reef yet discovered, and he
wanted the large area, about 1½ miles in

A BENDIGO MINER KILLED AT CHARTERS
TOWERS.— A miner, named W.J. Long was
last week killed by a blasting accident whilst
Charters Towers. His widowed mother, Mrs
Long, who resides in Myers street, and his
brother, who is an engine-driver at the Ex-
tended Hustler’s mine received news yester-
day by telegram of the sad occurrence. The
deceased, who worked for several years at the
Hercules and Energetic mine, Long Gully ,was
35 years of age, and leaves a widow, and four
children, the youngest being only five weeks
old, and the oldest about seven years. Great
sympathy is felt for the bereaved relatives,
who besides his mother, and widow, and
child, include three sisters and three brothers.
The latter are in different Bendigo
mines.
THE IRONBARK COMPANY'S ACCIDENT.—
so terribly burned in the Ironbark Company’s
mine last Friday, was in a critical state last
night. Dr Peebles, the resident surgeon of
the hospital, says he is much worse than
when admitted.
AN EXCITING SCENE IN COURT.— Quite an
exciting scene occurred in the Melbourne City.
Court yeaterday morming the principals being
half a dozen constables and a blacksmith
named Arthur Seymour. It seems that on
Sunday forenoon Constable McCubbin ob-
jected to Seymour lounging against a lamp
post, and asked him if he had started any
work yet. Seymour doubted his right to
question him on the subject. The constable
replied that as he had spoken to him twenty
times within the last three years and as he
never did any work or gave him any satisfac-
ion, he would arrest him for vagrancy. On
the road to the watchhouse he tried to escape
but was overpowered after a desperate
struggle. The court records showed he had
been several times convicted with larceny
and vagrancy. In court yesterday morning
he objected to the mention of these records
as if he had done wrong he had been punished.
The bench bowever, ordered him to six moaths.
When being taken to the cells he made a
desperate onslaught on the police and was
ordered back into court again. As soon as
the constables let go of him he rushed at
McGubbin and tried to cripple him with
kicks on the knees. Then half a dozen police-
men grappled with Seymour, who is a very
powerful man, and finally got him firmly in
hand. Then the magisgtrates increased his
vagrancy sentence to 12 months, and re-
constables.
FLOOD DAMAGES.— During the floods of
Saturday last, which were so heavy in the
Western District, a flve-horse waggon team
which were being driven across a creek at
Skipton, were washed away and drowned.

GOLD STEALING AT STEIGLITZ.— For some
time (says a Steiglitz correspondent) it has
been suspected that gold or amalgam was be-
ing stolen from the New Mariner’s mine,
and the police, with Mr Clinton, the mana-
the battery, and on Friday night about mid-
night caught a youth named Goodwin, a
blanket washer, stealing the amalgam from
the ripples. When arrested he was found to
have 7oz of amalgam in his possession, and
he acknowledged having appropriated a simi-
closely watched, but a corner of the housing
provided a screen for the culprit. Another
youth named Walker, one of the battery
feeders, who is, supposed to be implicated,
was also arrested. The 7oz of amalgam
would probably contain 2½oz of gold. Other

BENDIGO AND DISTRICT.
Sydney Barwick, 10 years of age was fined
by the City Bench on Monday, 20/, with
10/6 costs, on a charge of having stolen a
small bag of wood from the Bendigo railway
station. Bertie Hogg, aged 11 years; Flor-
ence Heatty, 11 years; and Horace Hurst
14½ years, were each fined 10/ with 10/6
costs, on similar charges. For having con-
tributed to the commission of his son's
offence, John Hogg was fined £2, with 21/
costs.
It has been proposed that the day shift in
the mines shall, at all events during the
winter months, start at 8 o'clock in the
morning, instead of 7 o'clock, as has been
the custom for years. The miners gene-
rally are strongly opposed to the proposal
as they think that, if carried into effect, it
would seriously interfer with their recrea-
tion and sports. Some contend that if the
change is brought about the miners should
be given a half-holiday on Saturdays, when
they could organise football, cricket, and
other sporting competitions for their own
physcal benefit and to strengthen the
Worn-out Miners' Fund.
A youth named George Jackson was fined
20/ by the City Bench on Monday, with 2/
costs, on a charge of having used a horse
in circumstances involving cruelty.
Mr. E.N. More, P.M., conducted an in-
quest concerning the death of Mrs. Jane
hospital as the result of burns sustained
at her residence in Golden Square on Wed-
nesday. A verdict was returned that death
was due to burns and that no blame was
attachable to anyone.

Court on Mondav on a charge of vagrancy.
