Activity in Mining. (Part 1)

Considerable activity in the mining enterprise prevails in various parts of this district and at present many hundreds of people obtain a livelihood by the development of the mineral resources which abound beneath the earth's surface. The ""find"" made in Fortune Harbour last year is turning out well. It is being worked by an American Company, under the management of Mr. C. O'B. REDDIN, who was one of the proprietor's of the property. There are from twenty to thirty men employed at present, and if it should prove a success, a much larger number will be working there later on. It is evident from the indications visible that a large deposit of copper ore lies buried beneath the bowels of the earth in close proximity to where the operations are now being carried on, and the probability is that 'ere' long mining will be ""booming"" in that locality. When we had the privilege of visiting Fortune Harbour last week the ore that was then being excavated was of a better quality than what had been brought to the surface for some time previously and we sincerely hope that this mine will prove a valuable source of wealth and give employment to many people. The harbour is one of the finest in the colony, is comparatively free from rocks and shoals, and will admit of the largest ships that visit our coast, entering it with the greatest safety.

Activity in Mining. (Part 2)

The mine now in operation is situated only a few yards from the waterside, which makes it very convenient for the shipping of ore which we trust will prove abundant as operations progress. The Pilley’s Island mine has recently been taken over by a new company, and will be worked more extensively than ever during this season. The ore which it yields, iron pyrites, is more abundant than formerly and preparations are being made for larger shipments this year. At Sunday Cove Island Capt. CLEARY has had a number of miners and others engaged the past few months, and a considerable quantity of ore containing a fair percentage of copper has been brought to the surface. A new shaft is being sunk and indications are very much in favour of a large deposit of copper covering the mining claim which he holds in that locality. In the old mining centres, namely: Little Bay and Tilt Cove, operations are vigorously pushed forward. Some hundreds of men are employed in connection with these mines and the greatest activity prevails in these important settlements. On the whole the mining outlook in our district is very encouraging and it is to be hoped that the large amount of capital that is being expended in connection therewith will yield profitable returns to all who are speculating in the mining enterprise.

The Event of the Season. (Part 1)

Tuesday June the 9th. broke with a damp Easterly wind and the smoke from the calcining stalls, hung between the hills that surround the village of Tilt Cove, which rendered the atmosphere rather unpleasant. But it was soon observed that there were light hearts under the cloud of fog and smoke. Before ten a.m. flags were flying in all directions in the village and the s.s. “Volo” which was lying at the pier, was decked in her best colours in anticipation of the coming event, viz.: the marriage of Mr. William BOWMAN of Irvine, Ayrshire, Scotland, to Miss Wilhelmina, daughter of Mr. John S. MARTIN of Upper Island Cove, Conception Bay. About noon the wind changed and the mist gave place to bright sunshine. As for the weather it was all that could be desired for the occasion. At 5 p.m. a goodly congregation had assembled in Christ Church to see the marriage. The bridegroom and his best man, Mr. F. G. WILLIAMS (Acting Manager for the Cape Copper Company) arrived at the Church shortly after. Behind them came the Bride, escorted by Mr. J. M. JACKMAN, and attended by others of the Bridal Party. She was attired in Cream Nun’s Veiling and wore a handsome wreath and veil.

The Event of the Season. (Part 2)

She appeared to be a picture of modesty and beauty combined, and attracted the attention of all present as she walked up the aisle leaning on her brother-in-law’s arm. The service was begun by singing Hymn 350, and ended with the 351st, (A. & M.) Mrs. CUNNINGHAM organist. On leaving the Church the happy couple were saluted by a volley of guns, which was oft repeated, and with the report of the guns and the noise of two steam whistles a continuous roar was kept up until long after the party reached Mr. JACKMAN’s dwelling, where a feast of good things awaited them. Everybody tried to make the happy pair happier. Mrs. FREEBAIRN had her organ removed to the Hall near the front door, and played the wedding march while they were passing along the road nearby. After dark the ground in front of Mr. GILL’s cottage was the centre of attraction on account of the display of fireworks – rockets, blue lights, and roman candles – which Mr. GILL gave as a token of respect to his head shopman, and in honour of the event. The wedding festival lasted two days. May the Bridegroom and the Bride have a long and happy union, and may the evening of life find them rejoicing in the hope of a happy eternity.

Fogo News

Our new Magistrate S. BAIRD, Esq., has already had several important cases. Two men were heavily sentenced for cutting Mr. PHILLIPS’ boom in Gander Bay. A man received a month’s imprisonment for stealing a piece of rope from his neighbour in Fogo; but the exciting case came off on the 4th of June respecting TWENTY-ONE DEER SLAUGHTERED. Mr. C. EARLE of Change Islands, acknowledged buying 17 quarters. It appears 7 men were in the company that killed them. Mr. EARLE bought them out of compassion for the poor starving men living in Gander Bay. The trial which had been postponed for some days, owing to the sickness of Mr. EARLE, was a most important one, as the news of the slaughter had reached St. John’s and two telegrams had been sent to Fogo urging the Magistrate and R. SCOTT, Esq., J.P., to give great attention to the case, and to have it carefully reported to St. John’s. The Court House was full and quite a lively spectacle was presented. Mr. Henry EARLE, J.P., and Sergeant LACEY had some sharp shooting – hot and bitter words. His Worship is evidently a man of peace and gentleness, and would rather calm than make strife. His Aid-de-Camp – the sergeant – is doubtless a man of law and war. His presence is the life of the courthouse; and even Mr. Henry EARLE, J.P. could not intimidate him, or prevent him saying and recording his objection to Mr. EARLE speaking to the court. Having received the telegrams the magistrate has deferred judgement until he hears from St. John’s. Possibly the case may be tried in a higher court. The parties have again to appear on or before July 1st. Meanwhile Seargent LACEY has been dispatched to Gander Bay to bring down the remaining six men who were in the party that killed them. The wife of one man, it is reported, struck the officer of the law with a stick, beyond this no violence was offered. Owing to the bad weather the men have not yet appeared, and it is not thought that they will give any fresh light on the case when they do. Fish here is awfully scarce and the whole outlook is sad and gloomy. There are still a few cases of diphtheria here, at Fogo Islands also, and Western Arm.

Death: Joseph RANDELL

Death of Joseph RANDELL, Storekeeper at Edwin Duders, Fogo: After about ten days illness this strong, healthy and active man fell asleep. He was unconscious much of the time, as his sickness terminated in brain fever. He was so much respected by all, that at the funeral all the merchants followed, besides a great and representative procession. He was honest and faithful as a servant, kind and obliging to dealers, exceedingly charitable to the poor at his home, where as a husband and father he was most gentle and kind. For years he was a teacher in the Methodist Sunday School, and an officer in that church. His place was never vacant at the hour of prayer. The wife and seven little children will be greatly comforted in their sorrow by remembering the words he uttered in his sickness, “It is well with my soul.”"

Grand Beach Murder Case. (Part 1)

Address of Chief Justice to the Grand Jury: The Grand Jury was summoned to Court this morning in connection with the Grand Beach murder case. The Chief Justice, Sir F. B. T. CARTER and Mr. Justice LITTLE were in attendance. After the Grand Jury had taken their seats, His Lordship, the Chief Justice, thus addressed them:-- MR. FOREMAN AND GENTLEMEN – Since we last met at the opening of the term on the 20th of May, when I was glad to announce there was no bill of indictment to be submitted for your consideration, a deplorable occurrence has taken place which has necessitated your being convened. It will be your duty to enquire into the circumstances in connection with a charge of the highest magnitude – wilful homicide – upon which the Acting Attorney General is prepared to submit a bill to you today. It would appear that in a place called Grand Beach, some twelve miles from Grand Bank, in Fortune Bay, among the few residents there is a family by the name of FOLLETT. There were two brothers – Edward and James FOLLETT; the former was of the age of 44 years, and the latter somewhat younger. The charge briefly is that on the afternoon of 30th May last after Edward had just landed from his dory on the beach, and when walking towards his dwelling house, close by, with a coil of rope on his shoulder, he was approached by his brother James, the prisoner, hurriedly walking or running, who was carrying a gun, and who, when some yards from Edward, pointed and discharged it at him.

Grand Beach Murder Case. (Part 2)

Edward almost immediately fell, and was found dead. On examination of the body there were discovered to be 68 shot wounds, chiefly about the heart. Some statements are alleged to have been made by the prisoner, which you will hear from the witness, as also, other facts, which I don’t think it is advisable I should now enter into. I infer, the prisoner was angered with the deceased from some real or imaginary cause, but so far as the depositions disclose, nothing occurred at or near the time of the alleged shooting, in any way to account for it. The law presumes every homicide to be murder until the contrary appears, and the Crown is not bound to prove malice or any facts in circumstances beside the homicide, from which the Jury may presume at. So if a man kill another, suddenly, without any, or without considerable provocation, the law will imply it, and the provocation, to reduce murder to manslaughter, that is, homicide not committed wilfully, or with malice aforethought, must be of an outrageous nature, such as would inflame the passion of a reasonable judgement and mind, and even then, if a sufficient time has elapsed between the provocation and the killing, the law assumes that the temporary furore has subsided, and the crime is capital. If the evidence should satisfy you that the charge of wilful homicide against the prisoner Edward FOLLETT has been sustained, you will find accordingly. The jury retired at 11 to examine the witnesses and read the evidence. Dr. HUBERT was the first witness called, after which some of those brought on from the scene of the murder were examined. At 4:20 this afternoon the Grand Jury came into Court with a true bill for wilful murder. FOLLETT will be duly arraigned for trial tomorrow morning. –Colonist, June 8.

Little Bay

LITTLE BAY, May 27. (To the Editor of the Sun). Please to insert in your paper the following:-- Received from Rev. S. O’FLYNN, the sum of one dollar and twenty cents, and oblige, yours truly, J.J. BENSON"

The Fishery

Caplin have been plentiful around our shores the past week, but codfish have been scarce.

Shipping News

Several fishing craft bound North, put into port last evening owing to adverse winds. An English vessel arrived at Little Bay a few days ago with a general cargo for the Mining Company. A large schooner laden with copper ore, sailed from Tilt Cove for a foreign market on Thursday. Another steamer is being loaded in that thriving mining community. At present between four and five hundred men are employed in connection with that mine.

Church News

The Rev. R. TEMPLE, R.D., took passage for St. John’s per “CONSCRIPT” to attend the biennial session of Synod. The Revs. R. W. FREEMAN, W. HARRIS, J.K. KELLY and S. J. RUSSEL also embarked here for the Metropolis to be present at the annual conference.


The weather up to date has been cold and chilly, and very backward for vegetation. One or two nights during the week there was a light frost. Further North, however, it has been much colder than we have experienced. A considerable quantity of snow fell at Conche on Tuesday night, and early the next morning the snow on the “CONSCIPT’s” deck was two or three inches thick.


The prospect of a good fishery on the so-called French Shore, as reported by the “CONSCRIPT” is somewhat hopeful. Many of the fishermen along the coast were doing well. The craft in Ming’s Bight were meeting with a fair measure of success, among them being the “SIX BROTHERS”, James YOUNG, and the “EREBAS”, Thomas VATCHER, master, belonging to this place. The salmon fishery is also reported to be opening well.


The “CONSCRIPT” Capt. WALSH, called on Thursday evening en route for St. John’s. She reached her terminus, Griquet, and did not meet with a great deal of ice, although a large body is reported at the entrance of the Straits. The “CONSCRIPT” had a large number of passengers going South, the list being much larger than usual on arriving here, as all the Methodist Ministers from the circuits North of this were taking passage to St. John’s to attend District Meeting and the Annual Conference.

La Grippe

La Grippe, which has been very prevalent for some months past in many parts of the country, has likewise been attacking many of the residents in communities North of this lately. At Conche many of the people were prostrated from its effects and several deaths have taken place. At Little Bay there have been from 250 and 300 cases, some of them being of a very serious type, but under the skilful treatment of Dr. JOSEPH all have survived, and up to a couple of days ago there had not been a single death from the direct cause of la grippe.


HYMENAL – This morning Rev. Mr. SMART, of Bay-de-Verde, and Miss NOEL, eldest daughter of the esteemed Rector of Harbour Grace, were united in Hymen’s silken banns at St. Paul’s Church. The ceremony was a very interesting one, and was witnessed by a large number, the church being literally crowded. – H. G. Standard.

Murder Trial

The prisoner FOLLETT was arraigned this morning and pleaded “Not Guilty.” Sir J. S. WINTER, Q.C., for the defence, said he was not in a position to inform the Court when he would be ready to proceed to trial, but that he intended having a consultation with the prisoner to-day, and would inform Court tomorrow whether he could proceed at once or not. – Evening Herald, June 9"

A New Schooner.

A fine new schooner built in Exploits, Notre Dame Bay, the past season, can be seen at Mr. CAMPBELL’s wharf, where she is discharging a cargo of lumber. She is called the MODUS VIVENDI, and will measure something like 80 tons. She was built for Mr. WINSOR, of Exploits, by Mr. George SEVIOR, who has the reputation of turning out some of the best sailers in Notre Dame Bay. He built the MERMAID, one of the prettiest models that ever floated down the Exploits River. The MODUS VIVENDI is a thoroughly built vessel, and as well built as birch, juniper, and copper can make her. She will be employed during the summer in the coasting trade. –Colonist, June 3.


On June 10th, at St. Peter’s Parsonage, Western Cove, White Bay, the wife of S. J. ANDREWS of a son.


At Washington, D. C., May 25th, the wife of Paul PUTZKI, Esq., of a son.

Masonic Lodge Twillingate.

An Emergency meeting of “Twillingate” Lodge, No. 2361, F. & A.M., was held in the Lodge room on Wednesday evening, when officers for the ensuing year were installed as follows: Bro. Andrew GRAY, W.M. “ Andrew LINFIELD, S.W. “ W. J. SCOTT, J.W. “ Nathl. PETTEN, Treas. “ Chas. MAYNE, Secy. “ Rev. W. R. TRATT, Chap. “ J. P. THOMPSON, Sen. D. “ Jas. N. PERCY, Jun. D. “ Charles WHITE, Steward. “ Jas. D. LOCKYER, Steward. “ Jno. W. AITKIN, Inner Guard. “ James PEYTON, Outer Guard. As it was not possible for either of the Past Masters of the St. John’s Lodges to be present to install the officers, a dispensation was granted by the Provincial Grand Master to call an emergency meeting on St. John’s Day (the 24th) for that purpose. The ceremony was performed by Bro. GRAY, the W.M. for the past year and was most solemn and impressive. At the close of the installation an unanimous vote of thanks was accorded to Bro. GRAY for the efficient manner in which he had presided over the Lodge the past year and for the great interest which he has taken in advancing the sublime principles of the Free Masonry in connection with “Twillingate” Lodge. It is only a year since the Lodge was inaugurated and in regular working order, yet a good many worthy members have been added to the roll, and it is in a comparatively flourishing condition.

Tribute to Rev. M. HARVEY

The Montreal Gazette of the 3rd inst., refers to the honors recently conferred upon Rev, Mr. HARVEY in the following complimentary terms: “The election of the Rev. Moses HARVEY, of St. John’s, Newfoundland, as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, will, we feel sure, be welcome to the readers of the Gazette, to whom he has long been known by his correspondence. There is, perhaps, no person living who has a more thorough and comprehensive knowledge of the history, resources, political situation and general condition and prospects of the Island than Mr. HARVEY. His “History of Newfoundland” has for years been a standard authority, both on this continent and in Great Britain. He has made a historical and economic study of the fisheries, with every feature on which he is ultimately acquainted. His description of the giant cuttle fish which first appeared in the Gazette, and his account of the ancient Basque graves discovered in Placentia Bay were most acceptable to Naturalists and Archaeologists. But for us there is still another reason why Mr. HARVEY’s election to the Royal Society should be greeted with satisfaction – his warm friendship for Canada and devotion to the cause of annexation. His presence in the ranks of the membership will, moreover, fill a gap left vacant since the death of the late Mr. Alexander MURRAY, C.M.G., head of the Geological Survey of Newfoundland, and formerly Sir William E. LOGAN’s assistant.

Dynamite Accident at Brigus

(Special to the Evening Telegram). Whitbourne June 19. A serious accident occurred at Brigus yesterday. While a man named John BARNES was removing a rock near the new Roman Catholic Church, having charged the blast with dynamite, the fuse apparently, did not burn down, and he went to see the cause, when the charge exploded, driving rocks in all directions, carrying away three of BARNES’ fingers, and mutilating him terribly about the head. Doctor DUNCAN has good hopes of his recovery, but the case is uncertain as yet. BARNES is about forty years of age, a married man and the only support of his widowed mother. He has had great experience in mining and blasting the past twenty years at Bett’s Cove and Tilt Cove. This goes to show how careful people should be handling dynamite. Poor BARNES’ hand was amputated last evening.


There are now some 800 men employed on the railway and about twenty miles of the line towards Rantem are completed.


The steamer that is to perform the mail service on the coast of Labrador this summer is to leave St. John’s on the 7th of July calling at Harbour Grace en route.


We learn that Mr. Henry JENNINGS of Western Head recently secured a tierce of fine salmon in one haul, among them being a monster one of thirty-two pounds weight.

Preventive Officer - Botwood

The Government recently appointed a Preventive Officer for Botwoodville, Exploit’s Bay, and Mr. E.B. COLBOURNE has been entrusted with the position. He left per “CONSCRIPT” to assume the duties of his office.

Crown vs. James FOLLETT

In the case of the Crown vs. James FOLLETT, charged with the murder of his brother, the jury brought in a verdict of “Manslaughter.” The trial which took the greater part of two or three days, ended on the evening of Wednesday the 17th inst.

Shipping News

The schooner “LOTTIE”, Capt. ROBERTS, laden with coal, arrived in port on Saturday night from Sydney, to Messrs. OWEN & EARLE, having first called at Fogo where she discharged part of her cargo. The “WILLIE”, Capt. TOMS, arrived to the same firm on Tuesday with salt.

Methodist Conference

At the meeting of the Methodist Conference in Gower Street Church, St. John’s, on Wednesday morning the Rev. James NURSE of Bonavista circuit, and Chairman of the district, was elected President, and the Rev. J.P. STOREY Secretary. We extend our congratulations on the distinction thus conferred upon them.

The Rev. Jas. LUMSDEN

The Rev. Jas. LUMSDEN, Mrs. LUMSDEN and child left here by the steamer last night en route to St. John’s. Mr. LUMSDEN has presided over Trinity Circuit for the past three years, and now, in accordance with the policy of the Methodist Church, is about to remove to another station. During their sojourn here Mr. LUMSDEN and his accomplished wife have made many warm friends, and their departure has occasioned feelings of regret among all classes. Mr. LUMSDEN’s flock realise that they are about to lose an able faithful and kind Pastor, and have petitioned the Transfer Committee with a view to retaining his services another year. This is evidence of the high esteem in which the Rev. Gentleman is so deservedly held. Trinity Record, June 20.

The Venison Trial

A Letter from Mr. H.J. EARLE. Plain Facts of the Case. (To the Editor of the Twillingate Sun). DEAR SIR, --- This morning on looking over your paper of the 20th inst., I find your Fogo correspondent stated that Sergeant LACEY and I had some bitter words in the Courtroom during the venison trial. The Sergeant made some objections to my addressing the Court. Unfortunately his voice is not the gentlest, nor – as our Fogo friend would say – of the sweetest, and so I presume I spoke rather louder than is my wont, and which, to some mind, may have sounded bitter. The affair began and ended very simply. As the Magistrate, a few days previous, had asked me if I had any remarks to make on the case, I took the liberty before the closing of the court to request permission to say a few words, as they would touch on the highly seasoned reports that had been circulated, all of which tended to point at my Agent as a deliberate violator of the Deer Act, and an inciter for the committal of further offences. Before leaving Fogo, Sergeant Lacey and I were on the most friendly terms, and I feel sure he will be much disappointed if I cannot return in time to assist in making up a full bench for the trial of the Fogo Agent who is accused of killing deer. For the information of the public generally I would add, the plain facts of the case against Charles EARLE are these: Several Gander Bay men came on his premises, one morning, and offered him some venison for sale. He declined purchasing. In the evening they returned, and stated they had been unable to dispose of it anywhere, that with the exception of venison, their families were wholly without food, and would he take the meat from them in exchange for Bread and Flour. After some hesitation, and at their earnest solicitation my brother consented. Hence the trouble. Truly yours, Henry J. EARLE. Twillingate, June 25.

Labrador Medical Officer

Dr. SCOTT has received the appointment of Medical Officer for the Labrador for the ensuing season, and will take passage for the coast by the Labrador steamer leaving St. John’s on the 7th July, which will call here en route for him. Last year the two offices of Medical Officer and Sub-Collector were combined and performed by one official, but it did not appear to give general satisfaction to the people requiring Medical treatment, as the duties of Collector called him to parts of the coast where the great bulk of the fishermen were not located. In this case it was impossible to suppose that the services of the Doctor could be availed of by those on the extreme Northern part of the coast. This year the Government has wisely decided to have the both services performed by two officials as formerly, and we believe that the selection of Medical officer is a very judicious one. Dr. SCOTT ranks high in his profession and takes with him into the office he has recently been appointed, many years of experience which cannot fail to be of great value in treating the many phases of diseases with which he will likely be brought into contact during his term of office.

First Arrivals from the Fishery

Two or three of our fishing vessels which left here early for the French Shore returned during the week with good catches, considering the short time they have been absent. The names of the schooners that have arrived are as follows: “IRIS,” John ROBERTS, master, 150 qtls; and “EREBUS,” T. VATCHER, 180qtls; and “MALLARD,” John ROBERTS, 50 qtls. The two former caught their catch in Ming’s Bight and report other craft fishing in the neighbourhood as having done fairly well. The schooners that have returned will start for the Labrador in few days, and we trust that more abundant success will attend the labours of the hardy toilers who compose the crews. It is reported that the Labrador coast is blocked with ice, though a few days’ favourable winds would soon remove the barrier and enable the craft to reach the northern most parts.
