Bendigo May 27.-there have been some ups and Downs of a rather sensational character in the share Market this week. Tho most remarkable feature was the heavy Advance of Hustler s reef from 23s. Go. To 30s, 9d., and the sudden fall to 20s. This reaction was Only to be looked for As every shilling they advanced the exaggerated expectations of shareholders became heightened. And the result was that though they had an excellent yield-315oz. Gold from 298 tons there was a feeling of disappointment and a number of shares coming into the Market caused a severe fall in prices. Tho mine maintains an excellent appearance and the Prospect is a. Good one. South St. Mungo another fashionable Stock had also a Severo fall but for a More tangible reason As the yield showed a marked decline. Princess Dagmar had Good support As the reef in the Shaft continues to show Gold in apparently payable quantities.

Job mining revival has set in at poster better known years ago As stockyard Creek. Recent discoveries show Thot the reefs which feed the alluvial leads carry payable Stone and that Branch leads exist in addition to the one worked out years ago. The great Victory company has come upon payable alluvial ground with indications of a Good reef close at hand. The Jubilee company on the North is working on Stone showing Gold freely. The poster proprietary company further West and South has bottomed at 40ft. On a payable Load whilst the Central King company ha9 discovered a Gold bearing Lead which is apparently a new Branch altogether. South Australia. A Telegram from Beltane announces that the Leigh s Creek bore has gone through 12ft. Of Good Black Coal and is still in it. Considerable speculation has been going on for shares which fluctuated in Price Between 33s. And 16s., going up again to 25s. The government geologist has a High opinion of the discovery and thinks that Coal May be found nearer the surface than where the seam was struck. Or. W. Howchin f.g.s., says that the Coal is simply a variety of Lignite and is of an inferior character and will not Bear Export to a Long distance.

There was a dispute about the ownership of the animal. Plaintiff said it was his having Given a couple of pounds for it whilst on the other hand defendant contended the dog was his. His honour was at a loss to decide Between the parties but the dog settled it for on plaintiff calling out " Minnie it followed round the court and into the witness Box. The judge humorously observed that the dog s evidence was strongly against defendant and to accordingly entered a verdict for plaintiff with �1-damages for detention.
