Special Mining Wardens appointed

Tuesday 9 August 1910, The Sydney Morning Herald

Some time ago a number of special mining wardens were appointed to take charge of districts where it is impracticable for the resident police magistrates to attend to the duties of that office. The constitution of the districts in of a temporary nature, some being of considerable extent. Glen Innes, for instance, embraces Drake, Inverell, Tenterfield, Armidale, Hillgrove, and other northern mining localities. In the meantime, one of the wardens, Mr. W. Perry, will have his headquarters at Glen Innes, Mr. A. B. C. Barker, at Bathurst. Mr George James, at Cootamundra, and Mr. O. R. Williams, at Goulburn. They will commence duty in their new appointments on August 15. The scheme, if successful, will probably be further extended. So far it is experimental. Cobar and Broken Hill are not included in it, as, owing to their position, apart from other fields, it is not considered necessary to have special wardens.
