BANK OF ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 9 April 1896
BANK OF ENGLAND. The rich outcropping vein discovered on the Bank of England a few iweeks ago promises to completely alter the vahle of the mine. It will be rememtbered that when inspected some little time sine the vein, carrying very rich gold, was 'widening as It was opened up in a trench being sunk on it. Since then~the trench has been carried down to a total depth of 9ft, and at the bottom the I vein has widened out to a lode four or five feet wide. It carries splendid gold, and prospects washed on Wednesday gave a] better return than has previously been obtained from any other schistose ironstone I lode in the district at this depth. The metal is fine, but is carried all through the matrix. and although, of course, the whole lift would not show such good returns, as the samples] dollied, the discovery is an important one I and ;promises to turn what has been regarded somewhat-in theoight of a lame duck inito a very rich mine. The reef is opening pip so1 well that a start has .b...

He was accompanied by all the members of the Ministry except the Commissioner of Crown Lands (Mr Gillen), who is out of town. He opened by referring to the first time he was a candidate for West Adelaide, and re ferred to the work of the last Parliament as a record of which the Ministry and legislators might be justly proud, as it had passed more reforms of great im portance than any of its predecessors.

He laid special stress on adult suffrage, which enfranchised 60,000 women, and on the initiation of the progressive principle of taxation. Be claimed that his Govern ment had...
MINING. Mining News. HANNANS WEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 9 April 1896
MINING. (QY OUR I MINING REPORTER) Mining News. HANNANS WEALTH, A good strike has been made in this mine, which is situated about half a mile from the town on the Boulder road. A shaft was sunk to a depth of l00ft, and from the bottom a crosscut was run in 50ft, at which point a lode 5ft in width was intersected, It is a true north-west and south-east formation consisting of ironstone. schist, and quartz, from which fair prospects have beenobtained by dollying. In the deep alluvial ground in which the shaft was. sunk the settled country was not reached till a good depth had been attained, but in the hundred feet of sinking several quartz leaders were passed through, and a peculiar vein of jasper and abestos was met with. This was en couraging, and the crosscut was pushed on as rapidly as possible to see what the country contained. Carrying it across the strike of the country, it had been driven only 50 feet when the lode was struck. It is a nice-looking body of stone, but in this de...
A Remedy for Typhoid. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 9 April 1896
A Remedy for Typhoid. With reference to the recent cable message stating that the scientific investigations at the Pasteur Institute, Paris, had discovered a new serum innoculation with which is stated to be a cure for typhoid fever, Dr J. W. Springthorpe, of Melbourne, has supplied some interesting information. ' Ever since Dr Koch brought forward tuberculin for the treatment of consumption," he says, "there has been great activity, especially on the Continent, both in Germany and France, in the treatment of infectious diseases, much on the same lines. As everyone is aware. this has already been successfully done in diptheria, and with some satis factory results in tetanus and other diseases. Typhoid fever has naturally received careful attention in the same direction. Several attempt. have already been made to treat typhoid patients by means of an injection of some form of anti-toxin, but the difficulty with typhoid is that no animal but man seems susceptible to the disease. Still...

The Storyteller. THE FINGER OF HANKIN. CHAPTER III. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 9 April 1896
- The Storyteller. THE FINGER OF HANKIN. (FROM "CHAMBERS' MISCELL&NY. ") CHAPTER III. When a young man of twenty-three de liberately adds to his bachelor household an attractive young lady of six summers, who -Apeaks foreign languages and possesses a history, attention is naturally drawn to the performance. Scale's acquaintances, espe cially the feminine portion of them, were first curious, and then shocked; and out of sheer justice to Nancy he had to tell one or two of them the true story of 'fankin. The news spread through that small fraction of London which knew Seale, and the esteem with which it had previously regarded him changed with a very short prelude. It is no use giving dinners to a young man with no expectations who has deliberately chosen 'to cumber himself with a scamp's brat ; and if you have daughters, it is a mad thing to ask to your dances a wretched fellow whom it would be the utmost misfortune for your daughter to fall in love with. And so the invitation...

A small bratich steamer came out to her from inside the bar, and Scale tasted the joys of being transhipped in a tossing surf-boat manned by paddling Elmina boys. The branch steamer deposited him at one of the wharfs which jut out from the boulevard of the Marina into the lagoon, and his new chief met him there with a triekshaw and white umbrella. Knowing that Lagos is a town of negroes, he had somehow or other been prepared to find unlimited had smells and because these were entirely absent, the air of the place came to him as a general surprise. He settled down in two large, cool, whitewashed rooms, and proceeded to enjoy himself. Being newly landed and full of health, he naturally found the work expected of him ridiculously light; and lie had occasion to put on his dress-clothes every night, and dis covered that...

The Western Argus. PUBLISHED EVERY THURSDAY. THURSDAY, APRIL 9, 1896. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 9 April 1896
PUBLISHED EVERY THURSDAY. THURSDAY, APRIL 9, 1896. PRAISE is due to the residents of Broad Arrow for calling public attention to the influx of Italians and to the digni fied attitude assumed by them at the meeting recently held on the question. It would not be reasonable to object to the employment of foreigners, so long as they received the ruling rate of wages, but their presence is suggestive of cheap labor, and, conse quently, in the opinion of the miners of Broad A:row, the matter needs investi gation. It was stated that a number of Italians who are now working in one of the mines get only 11s a week and rations, and it was further asserted that the greater number of the men are not working for the owners of the mine, but for an Italian contractor to whom the managing director had let a contract at 9d per foot lower than the lowest tender from English-miners. As the meeting was not cognisant of the facts of the case a committee of three was appointed to make inquiries and to re...
Black Flag. March 30. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 9 April 1896
* Black Flag. March 30. We have just been favored with an extra. ordinary downpour of rain. Commencing on Thursday night it continued without inter mission until yesterday (Sunday) at mid-day. Altogether nearly five inches of rain fell in 40 hours. The consequence is that the country is flooded. An immense volume of water is still 'pouting in to the. lake east of. the Devon Consols Gold Mine. The lake for two viles in length and one mile wide is coveredwith water three feet deep at the shallowest part. The novel sight is presented to-day of men proceeding to their places of work fording the streams with their ap parel under their arms. It does seem a pity that so much of the precious fluid (sufficient to work all the batteries in W.A. for the next quarter of a century) should be allowed to run to waste. A good deal of damage has been done to the mines by the magnificent rains. The Royal Standard mine is reported to have haul 15,000 bricks, made at a great cost on the mine, destroyed...

Correspondence. p [The Editor does not hold himself respon sible for opinions expressed by corres pondents.)' A DISSATISFIED INDIVIDUAL. TO THE EDITOR. Sxn.-The subjoined is a cutting from the "Ballarat Courier,". and I think, Sir, it will speak for itself. The writer of such a letter evidently must be homesick. It's a pity someone doesn't assist him to go back to his mother for fear the Field will be worked out, and land him 'among the unemployed. He can't be much of a prospector when he says that he has come here too late, as all the ground has been taken up for eight miles around. I ari thankful myself that there have been men here with better pluck than Mr Sheridan to go a little further out than eight miles.-1 am, Sir, &c., MINER. Black Flag, March 30. The extract referred to in the above letter reads as follows: Mr John Callinan, president of the Balla rat branch of the Miner's Association, has received a very interesting letter from. .Mr Johnt Sheridan, formerly of th...
