COOLGARDIE, YILGARN AND DUNDAS GOLDFIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 30 August 1913
COOLGARDIE, YILGARN AND DUNDAS GOLDFIELDS. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; The following is the annual report &nbsp; of the Inspector of Mines (Mr. J. &nbsp; Crabbe) on these fields:— &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; COOLGARDIE GOLDFIELD. &nbsp; &nbsp; "There has been a substantial in- &nbsp; &nbsp; crease in the gold yield in this field compared with the year 1911, which amounted to about 7,000 ounces of fine gold, and as mining at the different &nbsp; centres is looking more prosperous than at the beginning of the year it may reasonably be expected that the year 1913 will show an increase &nbsp; compared with the year under review. &nbsp; &nbsp; "At Chadwin high grade ore has been treated from the different mines; &nbsp; the veins are maintaining their size and value and have every appearance of continuing to a considerable depth. "Good results were again obtained &...
Concealing Facts. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 30 August 1913
Concealing Facts. Some years ago the accounts of the Railway Department were so segrega- ted that those who ran could read and &nbsp; ascertain the extent to which the &nbsp; people of the goldfields were being fleeced through the Railway Depart- ment. Then, obviously in order to keep the people of the fields in ignor- ance of the extent to which the de- partment were penalising them, some- one arranged that in future the ac- counts be made less explicit, and since that fat went forth, we of the fields &nbsp; have to submit to an unfair measure of taxation without being permitted &nbsp; to know the extent to which we are being bled by one of the most impor- tant departments in the State. It was bad enough to blind us as to the methods by which we were being fleeced on wholesale lines through the &nbsp; &nbsp; iniquitous railway freights, but now it appears as though goldfields folk are not to know the extent to which they are being imp...

Workers' Homes. A CHANCE FOB CHARLEY. __________ The "Southern Cross Times'' has &nbsp; the following to say rcgarding the member for Yilgarn: — A few issues back we insinuated that Charles Hudson, M.L.A., and a couple of other alleged politicians, who are spposed to represent this field, &nbsp; were not earning the salaries that they draw from the Treasury. We still re- gard the throe- to ivhcn we 111 made re- &nbsp; ference as ' «;lap trai- p:uji_itcd, who only- come l-vli1 way vrhLg they want our votes; but, though we Unovr the uttcv worth! ossnssF of iho alleg-il repre- sontativas »sf this great goldfield, we &nbsp; foci it to bo jur duty to po;nt one to them, and tt- Mr. C.

GARDEN NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 30 August 1913
GARDEN NOTES. This should be a busy time with gold- fields gardeners, and sowings of French beans should be made.The best &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; variety for the fields is Canadian &nbsp; Wonder.It gives the best results in &nbsp; well preparcd ground, but plenty of water is required. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Jerusalem artichokes do remarkably well on the fields, and now is a good &nbsp; time to plant the tubers. They are &nbsp; &nbsp; very similar to potatoes, and should &nbsp; be cultivated in the same manner. They are grown from tubers, which should be planted in the early spring, in rows &nbsp; twenty inches apart and nine inches &nbsp; between the tubers. They are ex- &nbsp; tremely hardy, and will yield enormous crops with very little attention. When ripe they should be stored in dry sand; they will not keep if exposed to the air. &...

THE CYCKET'S GONG. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 30 August 1913
THE CYCLIST'S SONG. &nbsp; Oh it's a joy to be up in the morning when the dew is yet on the &nbsp; clover, &nbsp; &nbsp; And the air is full of sweetness that makes a draught devine ; To mount one's wheel and go flying away and away— a rover, In a wide, bright world of beauty— and all that world is mine ! There's a breath of balm on the &nbsp; breezes, a scent of the wayward roses, &nbsp; A hint of the incense odours that &nbsp; blow through the hillside pines, And ever-shifting landscape, that &nbsp; &nbsp; some new, bright charm dis- closes, As I flash from nooks of shadow to plains where the sunlight shines. &nbsp; I sing in my care-free gladness ; I am kin to the wind that's blow- ing ; I am thrilled by the bliss of motion like the bird that skims the down ; Give me a wheel for a comrade, and the king may keep his crown.
AN ALLUVIAL PATCH. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 30 August 1913
AN ALLUVIAL PATCH, There was some talk in Coolgardie yesterday about an alluvial find on the Hannahs road, near the site of the old Coolgardie brewery. There &nbsp; were a few men but there, and a &nbsp; &nbsp; dozen had assembled early in the day. Several were getting a few &nbsp; pieces, but there was nothing sen- sational about the find. A Coolgardie Estate. — Notification is given in this issue relative to the estate ot the late F. W. H. Hoffman, of Coolgardie. Claims against the estate should be sent to the curator of intestate estates (Mr. Gervaise Clifton) by Sept. 22. &nbsp;
A TAILINGS LICENSE. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 30 August 1913
A TAILINGS LICENSE. Thomas Moore applied for a license to treat tailings on lease 4192, the old Golden Bar, which has been idle for some time. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; John M. Elliott said the applicant was his partner. He had posted the usual notice on one of the pegs, about two chains from the dump, and he had advertised the application in the "Coolgardie Miner." He had seen the regulations before making his appli- cation. The estimated tonnage of what they meant to treat was about 400 tons of slimes that had been left by others. There were about 15,000 tons of sands, all told, but they would treat the small lots of slimes amount- ing to about 400 tons that had been left by others who had been treating the tailings. The material they wished to treat was scattered all over the place, a few tons here and there, on a good part of the lease. The appli- cant wanted the license for two months. The Warden said he would recom- mend the granting of the li...

Martin and Herbert Stockdill applied for gold mining leases 4455, being identical with the De Beers lease which was forfeieted for non-payment of rent. There was &nbsp; no opposition, and the Warden, recom- &nbsp; &nbsp; mended that the application be granted &nbsp; subject to survey. &nbsp; &nbsp;
SOME OCEAN NEWSPAPERS. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 30 August 1913
SOME OCEAN NEWSPAPERS. The ocean daily newspaper may be described as a bye-product of wire- less telegraphy. Prior to the arrival of Marconi in the world of science, the Transatlantic passenger was cut off from the world for six or seven days, but he can now have his news served up hot at breakfast-time &nbsp; every morning, just as if he were sipping his matutinal coffee on terra- firma. The most ambitious mari- &nbsp; time venture into the realms of daily journalism is that for which the Cunard Company are responsible. Evolving from a single sheet, which made its appearance once during the voyage, it has grown into a 32-page &nbsp; paper which contains, not only the news of the day, but also a serial story, chattyparagraphs, poems, ex- &nbsp; tracts from standard authors, des- criptive articles, items of useful in- formation, and advertisements ga- lore. It is, in fact, precisely the &nbsp; class of production to enable the idle passenger, l...
"Why the Child is Slow at School." [CONTRIBUTED.] [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 30 August 1913
" Why the Child is Slow at School." [CONTRIBUTED ] An article entitled " Why the child is slow at school," in " The Girls' Own Paper and Woman's Magazine" for May, by Elizabeth Childe, is worthy of wide publicity. She speaks &nbsp; of the fact — a fact recognised by all sufficiently interested in the subject of education — that there is something wrong, and that considering the effort &nbsp; put forth in striving to educate children the results are on the whole disappointing, and for the reason of this she does not go to the school but to the home. " Teachers feel," she writes, " that something is wrong, and struggle on. Parents feel it, aud stand by critically watching the efforts of the teachers to accomplish the impossibe. It is the proper office of the school to teach subjects, to deal out impartially to each student his share of instruc- tion, and then to pass on to the next pupil." And here she thinks she has found out the source of much of the trouble. " The m...
THE WEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 30 August 1913
THE WEATHER. &nbsp; The following notes on the weather for the week ending Wednesday, 20th August, have been supplied us by the Government Meteorologist : — &nbsp; The week ended yesterday, the 20th, opened with an active depression ope- rating over the sub-Tropical areas, ex- cluding the goldfields. As the system moved eastwards, the rain extended to the whole of the State, excepting the Kimberley and far south-east, moder- ate to heavy falls being registered on Thursday morning in the south-western division, and light elsewhere. The fol- lowing morning the registrations were light to heavy in coastal areas be- tween, Hamelin Pool and Esperance, and light over all the agricultural dis- tricts and the greater part of the Murchison and Coolgardie fields. By this time a new "high" was well es- tablished between Perth and Onslow, and with its advance the rain area con- tracted and diminished in intensity, only light falls being recorded on &nbsp; Sunday morning ...

DANGER OF PICKING SAMPLES. &nbsp; _________________ &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; A fifteen years old copy of the &nbsp; "Coolgardie Miner'' gives a good &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; idea of the danger of picking samples from the most favorable looking por- tions of a lode or reef. The report, which appeared in March, 1898, gives some historical information concern- ing the old Golden Leases, and is as follows:— &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; "Speaking at the first ordinary gen- eral meeting of the Mining Transport and General Finance Company, Ltd., held in London on December 31st, the managing director said:— 'The Golden Lease property is an amalgamation of two gold mines of 12 acres ea...
