PUBLISHED EVERY THURSDAY. THURSDAY, APRIL 16, 1896. THE Soudan promises to once more be come the theatre of operations of world wide interest. The advance of the com bined British and Egyptian forces to Dongola is apparently the beginning of a campaign having for its object the restoration of the Soudan to civilized rule, A significant statement was made lately in the House of Commons by Mr A. J.: Balfour to the effect that Eng land would never be satisfied with the position in Egypt until the Soudan had .been regained. A fatal, almost criminal, mistake was made by the Egyptian authorities in deciding to evacuate the Soudan, and a no less condemnatory error was made by the British Govern ment in withdrawing after the fall of Khartoum and the death of General Gordon. The many gallant lives that were lost, and the large amount of money that the expedition cost'were thus spent in vain, and the Soudan. was aban doned to the victorious [hibigts, whp, as Slatin Pasha, a~aptjeig 4 mngst th...

THE RAILWAY OPENING CELEBRATIONS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 16 April 1896
THE RAILWAY OPENING CELEBRA TIONS. TO THE EDITOR. Sia*-As I shall be in London when the Railway Demonstratioc takes place on the opening of the railway to Kalgoorlie, I think that the mining population of this field shoubld participate as much as possible in the enjoyments connected with the demonstra tion. I would therefore suggest that an open air concert be given for the amusement of the general public. I unfortunately omitted to make this suggestion at the general meeting this evening. Trusting this will meet with the approval of one of the sub-committees whose-duty it is to-cater for the public amusement.-I amn,,c.,, JOHN WILSON. Mayor. Kalgoorlie, April 10.

THE GOVERNMENT BUILDINGS. TO THE EDITOR. Sin--The opening of the railway to Kal goorlie will be a big thing for the town, and no doubt the energetic committee now on the boards will work to make the opening a success. The look of our -main street is a great item, and I understand the Council has this matter in hand, but the fence along the Government reserve is in a most dilapidated state. I think if a suggestion came from the right quarters. i.e., the Warden, the Government would sanction the erection of a really substantial and neat fence.-I am, &c., RESIDENT.

New Diseases. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 16 April 1896
New Diseases. According to the "British Medical Jourmnal" two new diseases may be added to the list of those arisingifrom the, conditions of. modern life. Among the most inevitable of such con ditions, of course, we must number football for the young and golf for-well older. But football has the distinction of a disease all to itself. This malady'lhas been dcbbed by the Wellington boys with the elegant and handy name of "serum pox," and it appears that it is an infection which is liable to be transmitted through' the abrasions which rough jerseys are apt to cause on the .faces of players during "scrummages." When: it once breaks out, it seems that the most strenuous sanitary measures have to be taken for the disinfection of jerseys and the avoidance of abrasions. It is "golf arm," however. which will arouse the greatest terror among the adult population. This disease cannot be dismissed in so light a phrase as the other. "lt appears to be due," we hear. " to the repeated sudden and ...
Australian Diggers in South Africa. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 16 April 1896
Australian Piggers In South Africa. It is not generally known that a party of Australian gold-diggers played an im portant and early part in the romantic history of gold-mining in South Africa. In an interesting, article, entitled "The Gold Mania," in a recent number of " Chambers's Journal," the incident above referred to is thus related :-Tie ruins of Masho naland were discovered in 186 by Karl Mauch, who also discovered the gold-field of Tat4, on the Zambesi, of which Livingstone had reported that'the natives got gold there by washing, being too lazy to dig for. it. When Karl Mauch came 1back to civilisation people laughed at hiss tories of ruined.cities in the centre of Africa as travl lers fables, but a number of Australian gold diggers thought his report of the 'Tate gold field good enough, to follow up. So about 1867 a band of them went out and sqt up a small battery on the Tate River foi crushing the quartz. This may be called the first serious attempt at gold mining in Sout...
