TELEGRAPH IC. PERTS, April 1. Yesterday, two foremen in the rail wey forwarding branch, under the control of the piermaster at Fre mantle, were suspended for reasons which, the piermaster states, will call for a special investigation. The men suspended were J. Coghlan and W. Rudd, day and night foremen in the outer railway forwarding branches On the suspension becoming known, Coghlan's gangs, com prising about 60 men, struck work and by last night about 150 men, `nearly the whole of the laborers under the pier master, joined in the strike The first strikers meeting was held last evening, and was attended by about 150 men. Many were ordered to leave the room by the chairman on account of not being connected with the ques tion at issue.

TELEGRAPHIC. SYDNEY, April 3. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 9 April 1896

TELEGRAPHIC. SYDNEY. April 3. George Gibson, boundary rider, Berriwa Station, has inherited £40,000 by the death of a relative in England. Gibson had been advertised for un successfully for 18 months. He has been in very poor circumstances. In reply to a deputation which waited upon the Postmaster-General, yesterday, to ask for an extension of the penny post system to Penrith, he said he fully recognised that there were anomilies in the present system and therefore, if the colony could afford it, penny postage would soon be in force all over the country. The time, unfor tunately, had not yet come. He had no doubt penny postage all round the world would come in time but at pre sent he could grant no concession in the matter. Two Broken Hill members waited on the Minister of Works yesterday and urged tOat the survey of the line of railway from Broken Hill to Menindie be carried out at once instead of wait ing for the construction of the line from Condobolin. It was pointed out that th...

Golden West Australia. Although therel have not been wanting advances in the department of West Aus tralian gold mining shares, such as in Hit or Miss to £1 13s Od, in Masuland Consols to £3 2s Gd, and in West Australian Goldfields to £7 Is 3d; the tone of the market generally has been quiet, and an expectant attitude is still shown owing to some delay in the first crushings of some of the leading mines, upon which great hopes are built. The leaders of the market have, however, been fairly active, Great Boulder at £6 :s, and Hannan's Brownhill at £7 10s. From the goldfields advices continue encouraging, although the mail news, owing tothe period of exemption, is not very interesting from the point of view of the actual output. New finds are reported. one of which was made about 120 miles north of Kalgoorlie, and has led to an exodus of local residents. A rich shoot has also been struck in thi Groper Mine, near Cue.

The Opening of the Kal goorlie Railway. AN ENTHUSIASTIC MEETING. UNITY TO.BE THE WATCHWORD. A LARGE AND REPRESENTATIVE COMMITTEE APPOINTED. There was a crowded attendance at Quig ley's Hall on Tuesday night when the meeting convened by the Mayor to consider the making of arrangements for the opening of the rail way was held. A preliminary meeting had been held during the afternoon, at which certain resolutions had been adopted. The Mayor, Mr Wilson, was voted to the chair on the motion of Mr Jephson, seconded by Mr Solomon. The chairman said some wise precautions had been taken by the preliminary meeting that afternoon in arranging for a number of sub-committees who would be responsible for the details of the arrangements. It was because so much was left to one man that the Coolgardie demonstration was bungled. He hoped the demonstration would be a great success. (Cheers,) Mr Zollner moved the following resolution: "That this meeting considers that, in view of the early opening of t...

The Three Mile Bicycle Race was won easily by Simper, who received a handicap. This rider was generally regarded as a dark horse, and it was thought that he should have started from scratch. In the evening there was a concert, when the music of a piano was heard for the first time in Bulong, the instrument having been obtained from Kalgoorlie for the cc casion.

Bardoc Notes. Saturday, April 4. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 9 April 1896

Eardoo Notes. (FoR OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) Saturday, April 4.. The splendid supply of water, recently struck in the Excelsior shaft continues to im prove daily. The battery is -now complete, and the manager, Mr W. McLellan, hopes to start the first crushing to-day. There is a paddock of splendid stone at grass, and the result is anxiously looked forward to, but from what I have seen it is lQtu4 spii& satisfactory, the stone being exceedingly rich. The various other mines in the district are being steadily developed, but there Istothing sensational to report. Enquiry was made for the Austrian 12 acre block during the week, but the prohibi tive price placed upon it by the owner pre cluded the possibility of any business being done. Other blocks were asked for, and I believe the sale is pending for two or three. Rapid progress is being made with the sinking of the Government water shaft, and it is stated a few weeks will see it completed. A splendid supply of water will then be...

THE SLY-GROG PROSECUTIONS. TO THE EDITOR. SIR,--The sub-leader in this day's issue of the MINER will meet with endorsement from every man who is not unduly prejudiced.. In connection therewith I beg to direct atten tion to the following cuttings as bearing out your sentiments: " Broken Hill. April 1. "At the Police Court to-day, Joseph Rundle was fined £3 and costs for running a tote in the Freemason's Hotel billiard saloon. The Police Magistrate said he was liable to a penalty of £100, but as this was the first case of the kind here, and the police gave no warning, lie inflicted a small fine." And from a New York Letter : " Another class of witnesses has been made up of wretches ready to sell themselves for any price. They were suddenly taken sick, and they appealed to the saloon-keeper's humanity to give them a drink, and when, after hard pleading, they succeeded in get ting w at they wanted, they arrested the saloon-keeper and locked him up. There is something abhorrent in the sp...

PUBLIC MEETING. THE RAILWAY TO MENZIES. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 9 April 1896

PUBLIC MEETING. THE RAILWAY TO MENZIES. A public meeting to consider the advisable- ness of trying to secure the survey of a rail- way line to Black Flag, Broad Arrow, and Bardoc from Kalgoorlie, as being nearer than a junction from the Menzies line, and enlisting the support of those places in a request of this nature to be laid before the Premier, was held at Quigley's Hall on Wednesday evening. There was a crowded attendance, and Mr C. J. Moran, member for the district, was voted to the chair. The chairman explained that he could not preside if the meeting were for the purpose of asking for the survey of a line to Menzies from Kalgoorlie, as in opposition to the pro- posed line from Coolgardie. He as the repre- sentative of the whole of the field, had to preserve an attitude of neutrality in the matter of routes until the matter was before the House. If the meeting confined itself to the objects specified in the advertisement he would preside, not otherwise. He knew that the Prem...

The Fate of Goulam Mahomet. PERTH, April 12. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 16 April 1896

The Fate of Goulam Mahomet. (BY TELEGRAPH.) PERTH, April 12. It is stated that some of the friends of Goulam Mahomet, now under sentence to be hanged for the murder of his kinsman, Tagh Mahomet, have been conspiring to defeat the fulfilment of the law by administering poison to the convict. Such information has been given to the Sheriff from two sources. As a consequence the convict has been placed under strict surveillance All food supplies are stopped from outside, while no one excepting officials are allowed to approach the cell of the condemned mail. The reason of the at tempt to bring about Goulam's death by other means than hanging is to give him a chance of reaching the celestial regions. Ac cording to the Mohammedan faith a man has no chance of getting to heaven if he be hanged, for then he becomes a pertubed spirit, but if he dies by poisoning or other means, even if death be self-inflicted, he does have a chance of being admitted amongst the blessed. With such ideas firmly...

'terrific Duststorm at Broken Hill. (BY TELEGRAPH.) BaoKEN HILL, April 12. Bad as have been the duststorms which have visited Broken Hill, that of yesterday beat all previous records. It reached its highest shortly after 4 p.m., when dense clouds of dust were taken up into the atmosphere and caused an almost total eclipse of the sun. For about half an hour the darkness of night prevailed inside all the buildings, and lights had to be obtained. The storm continuedall the evening, though the duststorm was less dense. In Argent street the scene was remarkable for the air became inky-black. The gloom was most awe-inspiring, and many ladies were terri fled into .btyries~ At first there was an impresSion' that some awful calamity -was going to happen, and not a few thought that the Day of Judgment had at length arrived. The blaekness was succeeded by a bright red color, but the dust was so thick that the buildings on one side of the street could not be seen by those standing on the opposi...

Railway Opening Celebration. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 16 April 1896

Railway+ Opening C elebra tion. [From the MINER of April 10.] Muon depends as to the success or otherwise of the railway opening pro ceedings on the steps that are taken at to-night's meeting of the committee. We hope that consequently there will be a large attendance, and that the im portant affairs to be arranged will receive careful consideration. The eyes of millions will be turned to Kalgoorlie during the celebrations, so no effort should be spared to make the demon stration as large and perfect as possible. A considerable amount of responsibility rests with those who have taken the proceedings in hand, and their duties are certain to be by no means light. Care should be exercised in making the various appointments, and particularly as regards the Chairmanship of the Reception Committee, as there is much probability of the Mayor being absent when the celebrations are in progress. The occupant of this position should be a gentleman of dignity and standing, and one with a reputat...
