Correspondence. [The Editor does not hold himself respon sible for the opinions expressed by cor respondents.] THE TOWN CLERKSHIP. TO THE EDITOR. Sxn-IlHerring to your leading article in this morning's issue I notice you say that the dismissal of the Town Clerk. cannot be dealt with by the Council unless I am present, as otherwise the meeting would not be a-" full " one. This version of the resolution I en tirely disagree with. It was the distinct understanding arrived at, at the last meeting that the .dismissal should be, dealt with finally at the next Council meeting, at which Crs McKenzie and Roberts will be present. The word "full," as applied to a meeting of the Council, means the full available attendance. I think this version of the proceedings will be borne oat by every councillor present.-I am, &c., JOHN WILSON, Mayor. Kalgoorlie. April 0,
THE MENZIES RAILWAY QUESTION. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 9 April 1896
THE MENZIES RAILWAY QUESTIQY. .1O THE EDITOR. Sir--Coolgardie as usual is folk wing in the wake of Kalgoorlie. The Kenztes ras.W way question is the latest example of "follow' my leader.?' As imitation is the sincerest flattery no ono here will object to our neigh bour displaying an eagerness to tread In our footsteps. What I for one object to is the misrepresentation by which it is sought to damage the interests of this district, find' with it the interests of the colony as a whole, in order to gratify the vice of selfishness. Coolgardle people overlook the fact that the big boy soinetinies coaxes to the ehd of* his growth suddenly, whilst the smaller boy? speedilyovertops him. This will be found to be the case with Kalgoorlie, whichalready bids fair to overtake Coolgardie in .commer cial, as it has alresidydone in uining impoi tancee 'The meeting which was held in Cool gardie on Saturday was "sound andi fury, signifying nothing." The Mayor was a nonentity and was not listened to. ...
