The Low Death Rate of the District. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 13 February 1896

The Low Death Rate of the District. Falsehoods and misrepresentations continue to be ahnlmost daily published in the other colonies regarding the West Australian goldfields. At one time it is the riclhness and permanency of our mines that is attacked, and at another the inconveniencies of life are grossly exaggerated, but one of the favorite themes for the abuse of the fields is their supposed unhealtli hess, they being continually represented as hot-beds of typhoid and other diseases. An unan swerable reply is given, to the statements last referred to by the official report that has just been made by l)r Barber, the medical officer of health at Kalgcorlie, giving particulars of the mumber of deaths during the past six months amongst the residents of Kalgoorlie aud the surrounding district within a five miles radius of the township.

Fixity of Tenure. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 13 February 1896

Fixity of Tenure. A NUMBER? of powerful arguments can be put forward ini support of the old mining institution known as jumping. It is, per haps, the only means by which to ensure compliance with the required labor con ditions. The original idea was to prevent the holding of claims by those who would not develop them themselves, or give them up without payment to those who would work them. The system of jumping, when carried out on this principle, is but fair, but it is very different where forfeiture is applied for on frivolous pleas, which are likely to affect the interests not alone of the mine-owners directly interested but also the welfare of the fields generally.. The application for the forfeiture of the lease of the Great Boulder came on for heariu.g yesterday at the Warden's Cburt with the result that the affair has endediin smoke, as expected from the first by almost everyone who inquired in4o the legality of the claim. The plea that was put forward was that the property w...

The British Government will defer making a public statement until after the trial of those implicated in :the recent outbreak. Mr Chamberlain, in a despatch to Sir Hercules Robinson, reviews the course of recent events, and says he was aware that the exclusive policy pursued by the Transva'l Government had irritated the Uitlanders, who had formidable grievances. He had watched the movement but did not believe a, collision would take ilace. The inva sion of the Transvaal by Dr Jameson was unexpected. There was no reason to fear foreign opposition. . Great Britain, hlie said, was determined to :maintain all 'the rights and articles of the treaty of 1884, as follows : the, South, African?. republic ...

A RAILWAY BLOCK AND ITS CONSEQUENCES. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 13 February 1896

A RAILWAY BLOCK AND ITS CONSEQUENCES. To-day information was received fromn Fremantle that the {ailway Depart mnent had issued a notice stating that they would ,not take delivery of goods from ships or forward the same by train, except breadstuffs and horse-feed. The local storekeepers amd business people are simply furious at this idiotic move of the already incompetent Department. The wl:olesale houses have given notice to the miners that they cannot supply powder, steel, or iron tools, and other necessities for working mines, and as a con-sequence exemptions are being ap plied for owing to inabili:y to work the properties. Astonishment is expressed that Sir Jolhn Forrest has not made a statement as to how the Government in tend ' t dealc with the Riihiwy `n.a Telegraph Departments.
