Police Protection [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 15 March 1913

Police Protection The Burbanks Progress Association recently asked that a constable be sta- tioned out there and Mr McDowall has now received a reply from the Col- onial Secretary's Department stating it is not considered that the expendi- ture would be justified at the present time. The Under-Secretary adds — I am directed to point out that in addi- tion to regularly patrolling the town the police at Coolgardie give prompt attention to any complaints which may be received, of which there have been none during the past six months.

Sudden Deah. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 15 March 1913

Sudden Death. At ten minutes to 11 o'clock lsst night William (alias Darkey) Clark was chatting with Dick Eddy in the Denver City when he suddenly started to vomit blood. He was at once carried into the back yard where he vomited more blood, and then he was laid on a rug spread on a heap of soft sand. But within a couple of minutes of taking ill it was apparent to anyone that the end had come. Dr. Ellis and the police were rung up, and when the doctor arrived he pronounced that life was extinct.

COOLGARDIE CADETS. Councillors Wax Warm. Storm in a Teacup. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 15 March 1913

COOLGARDIE CADETS. Councillors Wax Warm. Storm in a Teacup, At the meeting of the Council on Thurs- day evening this matter came up again in red-hot condition. Cr. Linkson said that a fortnight ago that a letter he sent to Lieutenant Reid re the bad treatment of cadets during the visit to a sports meeting at Kalgoorlie, but no reply had been received. He moved that the military authorities be written to. Cr. Mercer seconded, pro forma, but said the Council had no right to touch the matter at all. Cr. Noonan partly agreed with Cr.   Mercer. Cr. Hanley said one boy told him that he did not wish to catch the train, as he would sooner camp at Kalgoorlie than come down by the late train. The Mayor said that the point was the military authorities had taken the lads away and.did not bring them back the   same night. Cr. Faahan said his particular grievance was that the boys were compelled to go to drill and were not fed. They should write   to the Min...

COOLGARDIE LEASEHOLDERS AND PROSPECTORS' ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 15 March 1913

COOLGARDIE LEASEHOLDERS   AND PROSPECTORS ' ASSO-   CIATION. This branch held its fortnightly   meeting last Friday evening, when the president (Cr. W. M. Faahan) was in the chair, and there was a fair atten- dance. The meeting was held upstairs at the Australia Hotel, as the Friendly Societies' Hall was again engaged. It was notified that branches had been formed at Greenbushes and Golden Valley, and letters from older branches show that they have not been idle since the Conference. It was fur- ther decided to send books of rules to the new branches as soon as they come from the hands of the printer. Resolved that, owing to the uncer- tainty of securing the Friendly So- cieties' Hall, future meetings be held upstairs at the Australia Hotel. Mr. Nisbet intimated that the association could have the use of the room free of charge. The question of publishing the official report of the Conference in the "Coolgardie Miner"with a view to &nbs...

RICHEST BABY'S PARTY. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 15 March 1913

RICHEST BABY'S PARTY.   On Christmas Day Vinson Walsh Mc- Lean, the three-year-old boy who will     one day inherit £20,000,000, entertained the poor children of Washington at a party at which the chief feature was   a huge Christmas tree laden with ar- ticles more useful than ornamental. The previous day was the anniver-   sary of his birthday, when his guests were of a very different social status — each being prospective heir or heiress   to a large fortune. He had numerous costly presents, but the one that most   took his fancy, wa a live donkey,   scarcely bigger than a toy, and a beau- tiful cart, into which the children crowded with delight for a drive round the drawing-room. A mammoth birth-   day cake was brought in on a huge     sleigh drawn by a reindeer with Santa   Claus as the driver. _____________________________ &...

BOWLING. "B" PENNANT.   COOLGARDIE DEFEAT KAL-   GOORLIE. Neither Kalgoorlie nor Coolgardie had their best "B" teams in the field on Saturday at the Old Camp, but a good game resulted, and Coolgardie had a comfortable win.

Our Eastern Letter. Sydney, February 25, 1913 Political. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 15 March 1913

Our Eastern Letter.     (From our Correspondent.) Sydney, February 25, 1913. Political. The whirl of political controversy grows more and more rapid. With the return of Mr. Wade, both parti js ft em to have been inspired by a lou^lity determination to keep their t n J up at all hazards. Heroic feats in the shape of the use (and the mis-use) of language are daily being perpetrated, and that curious faculty, which man alone, of all the animal tribe, seems to posses — the faculty, nail'/!'/, of making the worse appear the better cause, is being exercised by zealous champions for all that it is worth. Part of the stock-in-trade of 'Librr,'-' so-called, is to vilify the Liberals as " Conservatives." The charge has so       much foundation as may be found in   the fact that electors of conservative   instinct (which usually means those who have anything to conserve) re- gard the Liberals as the less...

The Great Victoria. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 15 March 1913

The Great Victoria Since the Great Boulder took an op- tion over the Great Boulder group of leases there has been a great deal writ- ten about them, but all the ink expend- ed over them has been from the pens of writers who have not seen the mine,   and who would probably be utterly in- competent to give an estimate of its   value if they did see it, as it is unlike any other deposit that has yet been worked in Australasia, if not in the world.           It was shortly after an article en- titled "Millions of tons and Millions: of Ounces" appeared in the "Southern:;   Cross Times " that Mr. Hamilton de-     cided to sample the Victoria, and he admitted to the writer that it was that article that influenced him in coming to see the deposit. The writer of the article claimed that millions of tons in the mine would go twenty shillings per ton, and after keep...

NOTES ON THE MINING IN-   DUSTRY. MARCH 6, 1913.     (By the Mines Department.) Coolgardie Goldfield. The gold yield from the Coolgardie goldfield for the year 1912 was 41,893.52 fine ozs., constituting the largest yield on this field since the year 1907, and 8,139.81 fine ozs. more than was won during the year 1911. Three distinct features stand out prominently in connection with the goldfield for the past year, viz., (1) the success of tribute parties on the Bur- banks Birthday mine, Burbanks, Hid- den Secret North mine at Eundynie,   and at Bayley's mine, Coolgardie; (2) the striking of rich patches in the vicinity of Coolgardie, notably at the old Australasian mine and at the Camel Paddock; (3) the forfeiture of and applications for forfeiture of cer- tain mines near Coolgardie which have been in existence since the very early days. As the result of these forfeitures, what was formerly known as Griffiths' mine, will in future b...

Published Weekly SATURDAY, MARCH 16, 1913 THE MINING INDUSTRY. Befor leaving the goldfields on the occasion of his visit in connection with the turning of the first sod of the Trans- Australian railway, Mr. Dodd, M.L.A., came down to Coolgardie and was, with others, entertained by the Mayor and councillors. On that occ- sion Mr. Dodd referred to his early visit to Coolgardie and made several statements that should have received even wider publicity in the interests of the mining industry than was the case. He contended, from his personal   knowledge, that this field could find employment for thousands of addi- tional men under more favorable con- ditions of battery charges and taxa- tion. In connection with the battery question he referred to the present cost of treatment to the leaseholder and prospector, and expressed the   opinion that some means of reducing the charges should be devised in the interests of the State's one great in- dustry. This was all ...

PERSONAL. Mrs G. N. Clarke and her daughter who have been spending an extended holiday on the coast, chiefly at Cottes- loe and Fremantle, returned to Cool- gardie, on Thursday morning. Mr C. McDowall, MLA, after spending a few days in Coolgardie, left for Ora Banda yesterday evening. He will open the new Miner's Hall there to- day, and spend next week in Cool- gardie. Great regret is expressed at the de- parture of the bandmaster Mr. Rushton, who takes his leave of Coolgardie. Under Mr. Rushton the band has made great progress, and he has always freely given his services to any deserving object. Prior to his departure last evening for Melbourne on a six months' holi- day in search of better health, Con- stable Hamilton was entertained upstairs at the Australia Hotel yesterday afternoon, when all present indulged in laudatory speeches regarding his manly qualities and devotion to duty. A handsome gold locket for his little son was also presented to Constable Hamilton by the Mayor, w...

Correspondence Those Cadets To the Editor. ! Sir — Prior to our cont st at Kal goorlie the parents of a certain cadet considered that we were beneath their son. and rather than let him drill with us he was sent to Kalgooriie and he competed in a Kalgoorlie team against S us. The result of the contest is past history and while I do not rt fleet on any of our comrades comprising the forces, we .'uncivilised lot' beat the company this celestial plumaged lad wis a member of, for discipline and obedience to officers. We now learn this pet boy of goodness is to go to PertK with as, and someone more cap aDie to De iett out, 1 hope our boys will be Australians and object to aesoc-. iate with those who have wrougs, real or.phantom like — respect the toiler as much as the jump-up or peacock bird -»f feathers, and keep our forces as free as the vast waters that wash our Is 1 ud Continent. 1 am, etc, Jack Davies.

HAMPTON PLAINS. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 22 March 1913

HAMPTON PLAINS. During the past month several well known prospectors have been giving some attention to a run of country on. the Hampton Plains estate, on the old Golden Eagle line, where some thous ands of ounces were obtained a few years ago. Birrell and J\ Lancaster have been prospecting there for some time, and not far from the Eagle they picked up a leader which made as they followed it down, good gold being ob tained. They are now driving, and have exposed some 30ft. of the reef, which, at one end, was ratller broken, t-ut is making up again. The show is ' more than a promising one, but the country is very hard. It is the inten tion of the owners to do a good amount of development work before sending a parcel to the battery, and they will not come in until the nest run, when , they expect to have a big tonnage of 2oz. stone. It is the prospects of thish show that have attracted others '?pi the Plains, but the reserving of end /;u bloc which may be exercised 'by the /:ompany is...

THE WALLSEND-ROBINSON. Messrs. Cecil and party at the 'Walls- eniu^iTady Eobinson have cleaned up 550 tons for 165ozs. 14dwts., or un average of a shade over 6dwts. The ore was broken from the big lode, two machine drills being1 used, and v.7£-.s taken over a width of 12ft.,, but ev- n then one of the walls was not disclos 0 ed. As the result of this crushing the members of the party have completed the payment of the plant and have drawn full wages the first time for three years. At last their persever ance has won some reward. The ad ditions to the plant since the air com pressor and drills were installed some months ago, include two winches, one being steam and the other an air winch. Other improvements are in contemplation, and it is recognised now that the mine can be made to pay, provided the party continue to break the ore in sufficient quantities. There is plenty available, and while there is nothing flash about it, the mine should be a consistent producer for a long time to ...
