The Kalgoorlie to Menzies Railway. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 16 April 1896
The h Kalgoorlie to Menz?es Railway. : Gooiiwork has already been done in the interests of the Kalgoorlie-Meuzies railway. Two Ministers, Messrs Wlt tenoom. and Richardson have -viitiually promised a flying survey. The request, in fact, is so reasonable that no: Govern ment worthy of the confidence of' the people could refuse it, and the opposi tion that has come from Coolgardie shows that the residents of that town are afraid that a comparison should be made of the two routes, viz., from Coo1 gardie to Menzies and froe. Kalgoorlie to Menzies. Our Coolgardie neighbours know that the route from Kalgoorlie to Menzies is not alone considerably shorter, but it would serve more people, and so they dread the proposed flying survey from Kalgoorlie, which would show the inferiority of the line from Coolgardie. Over a thousand signa tures have been obtained in the Broad Arrow district and in Kalgoorlie, and the number is being daily augmented. Much praise is due to the committee for the ener...

The Brunner Colliery Disaster. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 16 April 1896
The Brunner Colliery Disaster. GooD encouragement has been given to the committee for the collection of funds for the relief of the families of the 60 miners who lost their lives in the Brun ner colliery disaster.

Subscrip tions are also being raised in t' e other coonies, and the Agent-General for ev nd lr 4=ap to the gi(lis ip1 lie on blhilfA he suffer ers ; but notwithstanding these eff'.rts all the monies obtained will be needed and a good deal more. Some 200 bmien and children-some of them in utterly destitute circumstances-were deprived of their bread-winners by the castrophe, so thait a very large sum indeed will be necessary in order to re move them from the fear of want. The people of New Zealand: have always re :sponded liberally toany appeals for help frodm Australia or elsewhere, and now that their turn has come we tru...

The Storyteller. MEMOIR OF A REGICIDE. A condemnation of King Louis XVI. by the National Convention on Thursday, 17th January, 1793, created a profound impres sion in revolutionary Paris. Men embraced one another on the streets, in the cafes, at the theatres, and offered congratulations at the bright promises of the future of repub lican France. Blinded by their fanaticism, their spirits kept continually on the qui vive by the disputes between the Jacobins and Girordins in the convention, the revolu tionists of Paris did not dream that the exe cution of the king virtually establihljed the Reign of Terror, that frightful pcr)odfraught with so much bloodshed, wickedness, suffer ing, anl sorrow, and which will-nigh ruined the fairest land upon which God's sun has ever shon - -. Unlike my kellow patriots,'I felt thlt our young republic stood on the brifk-ofkii'nsm and that the death of the king, which oc curred on the 21st, would cause it to topple and fall into the fathomless depths.
