TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 16 April 1896

TO THE EDITOR. SIR-Kindly allow me, through the columns of your paper, to return thanks to Mr John White, and the miners employed on Reefer's Eureka, Reefer's Trident, and Golden Zone North for their very accep table contribution of £9 10s in. aid of the relief of the widlows and orphans of the miners who lost their lives in the recent catastrophe at the ill-fated Brunner Mine. I am sending a copy of your paper containing the letter from Mr White to the Hon R. J. Seddon, Premier of New Zealand, so that that gentleman, who is an old miner, may see that the miners of Kalgoorlie fully and practically sympathise with the unfortunate sufferers from the deplorable calamity. As a New Zealander I specially thank the donors on behalf of the afflicted women and chil dren in my native country, and I sincerely assure them, should it be their misfortune God forbid it ever should--to meet with a similar fate, New Zealand will not be slow to render practical assistance to those in need.

Casting his eyes in the direction of the bag Edwards noticed thatsome loose parts of the sack .!ig at the mouth were smouldering. Acting on the impulse of the moment L:e ran towards the bag and was in the act of stamping out the smouldering fire when the contents of the bag exploded. At the moment of the explosion Edwards had instinctively raised his arm to pro tect his face, which was considerably scorched, his moustache-an d-eyebrows being singed, and his armn badly burned.., Fortui?ately Suirgeon-captaiu McWil liams was in camp, and in a few min utes was in attendance.

CABLEGRAMS. LONDON, April 8. Four machine guns from the flagship, George have been sent to Buluwayo. Lieutenant Maurice Gifford was wounded in a recent engagement. LATEB. Lieutenant Gifford's wound has not proved serious, and he still commands a force operating against the rebels, whom he has twice repulsed of late.

The rebels are re ported to be massing in large numbers within 15 miles of Buluwayo, and hard fighting is expected.

The Position in the Soudan. The Socdan, which, after an interval of 10 years, has again became the scene of events of world-wide interest, is inhabited by a variety of races. Of these the Arabs are by far the most important. Between Assuan, at the first Nile cata: act, which is the frontier of Egypt proper, and Khartoum, the people occupying the country on both sides of the river are what are called by Major Wingate camel Arabs in distinction to the cattle Arabs or Baggaras. On the west side of the river theyalso extend from Khartoum to the thirteenth parallel of latitude. The Baggaras reach as far as the eight parallel, and south of them is theregion of cattle~qwniug people of negroid race, wh-ose territory stretches to the equator on the northern shores of the Victoria Nyanza, and the great Congo forest.

Ellis was charged at the Police Court with the robbery of at cheque for £62 from a man named Watson. He was remanded for eight days. The promise that sleeping cars would be provided on the railway seems to be nothing more than a promise. Beyond being attached to the Vice-regal train at the time of the opening of the festivities, nothing more was seen or heard of them. The site granted by the Government for a racecourse was yesterday selected by the committee. It has been decided to lay down a course of one and a quarter miles in length. An important meeting was held last evening by the forwarding agents and merchants, with :the object of dealing with the new regulations made by the railway contractors. The regula tions...

A Remarkable Discovery. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 16 April 1896

A Remarkable Discovery. A French scientist, M. Ragonneau, has just discovered how to make a plant grow from the seed in 80 minutes as mucoh as it would under ordinary circumstances in as many days. Heretofore nature has shared this secret with the yoghis of Indiaalone, and the methods pursued by these clever magicians in performing this trick have been often described. They plant a seed in the earth and cover it with a cloth. In a few moments the cloth begins to be pushed up wards by the growing plant, which in a short timeattains the heightof several feet. Various theories have been advanced as to the modus operandi of this miracle, one of the latest being that the spectators are all hypno tised by the magician. During his travels in India M. Eagonneau saw this trick per formed frequently and noticed that the Hindoos always embedded the seed in soil which they brought with them especially for that purpose. At last he learned that they brought the earth from the ant hills. Now. as e...

.Some Lessons of Jameson's . Battle. . , A milita6, coz?espondent writes to the ' St. James's Gazette" : It may be worth while to devote some con sideration to the purely military aspects of the recent miserable events of the Transvaal. Snough is already known to furnish a lesson df great value to British soldiers and to the nation, for the military problem which Dr. Jameson and, his '! gilant- but. criminally insane staff set themselves to solve is one likely to occur ~equently under almost similzr conditioni in modern warfare, betvween Europeans armedt with monidefin weapons of precision., Dr. Jameson'slforces had to attack disciplined, infantry veterans (as regards the use of their weapons) in a defensive position, which allowed breach loading Tflee-fire to fallºwith abnormal.efeet,.

TELEGRAPHIC. PERTH, April 12. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 16 April 1896

PERTH, April 12. A serious smash occurred near the Federal Hotel, Framantle, yesterday morning, when a horse attached to one of Holmes Bros. butchers carts bolted from Henmerson-street, where the driver was serving a customer. After driving the cart some yatds: the rope broke, and the horse careered along )William .street at a mad gallop. The contents of the cart were scattered promiscuously :on tne roadway from the swaying vehicle. Nearing the Federal Hotel the horse swerved and brought the cart with a terrific crash against the corner columns of cast iron which sup port the balcony. Two of these columns were smashed into small pieces, and the corner of the balcony, robbed of its support, dropped several inches. The force of the impact failed, however, to arrest. except for a moment, the progress of the runaway whiclh continued along High-street where the ani mal was captured. The horse and cart were neither of them much the worse for the col lision. Fortunately no person was injur...

Life in Johannesburg. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 16 April 1896

Life in Johannesburg. "Society," as represented in Johannes burg, is of a decidely unique description. Without doubt there are highly educated and altogether charming people among the residents. both men and women; but they belong, with few exceptions, to the profes sional classes-clergymen, physicians, and lawyers, who have left their native lands and come here, attracted by the prospect of a larger scope for the exercise of their various callings. The elite. the mine-owners and original possessors of land-all million aires many tinmes over-taking them col lectively, hardly display those qualities which "stamp the rank of Vere de Vere.'" The women are vulgar aud illiterate, with dyed hair and. artificial complexions; they wear. outrageously loud toilettes. and are plastered over with diamonds at all hours. Most of them are former members of theatrical touring companies, barmaids, or shop-girls, and they are to be seen all day long driving about the streets in their gor geous carria...

The National Reform League. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 16 April 1896

The National Reform League. Pas'is is certainly due to the members of the recently-formed National Reform League for the moderation which marks their programme. West Australia lags a long way behind as regards the political reforms of the last twenty years. Payment -of members, adult suffrage, one-man-cr ne-vote, progressive taxation, are s ill in the dim distant future, but the work of reformation can only be effected gradually. The lower rungs of the ladder must be surmounted one by one before the top can be -at stained, and the advisability of advanc ing cautiously and step by step has evidently been wisely recognised by the members of the League. The first object for which tlit organisation has been formed is to establish and support a sound constitutional government by inducing tie candidature and securing the return of capable and honorable men as representatives in Parliamenlt. This -means that the League will en deavor to obtain the election of men subscribing to the platfor...
