The Kalgoorlie-Menzies Railway. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 23 April 1896
The Kalgoorlie-MlVenzies Railway. [From the MINER Of April 17.] THE Kalgoorlie to Menzies Railway Committee have wisely decided to hold a monster public meeting to further the project for constructing the railway to Menzies via Smithfield, Broad Arrow, Bardoc, and Goongarrie, instead of by the lengthy roundabout route advocated by a section of the Coolgardie people. The fact that a railway from Kalgoorlie to Menzies by the route mentioned would best serve the largest number of people in the most direct way and at the cheap est cost should not tempt the members of the committee to rest from their ex ertions in the conviction that no Govern ment desirious of effecting the greatest good to the greatest number would fol low the ridiculous course proposed by certain residents of Coolgardie, whose interests would be served by an accession of trade to the town. Strong interests are represented among the opponents to the Kalgoorlie to Menzies railway, and the committee, notwithstanding the ...
Bardoc Notes. Bardoc, April 15. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 23 April 1896
Barto6 Notest (FROM OUR' ORRESPONDINT.) Bardoc, April 15. The Excelsior battery, which has been running.for the past week, is giving great satisfaction, although the unavoidable delays incidental to starting new machinery were experienced by the management early in the week. One of the greatestdifficulties labored under was the absence of the pumping gear, which was unaccountably detained in Cool gardie. But all. is now. running smoothly, the water supply is ample, anid the returns, I have been assured, will be something sen sational. On the Bardoc G.M. Co.'s property, known as the Bank of England, a very rich find was made during the week, I have been told, at a depth of 70ft. The manager, it is stated, at once cabled the news to London, on which market this property was recently floated. Mr J. Green, 'owner of the Maitland, 24 acres, has been rewarded for his plucky and persistent work by striking rich gold, at the 150ft level. The Maitland is situated on the Excelsior line of ree...
The Matabele Rising. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 23 April 1896
The Matabele Rising. THE troubles in Matabeleland have de veloped into a serious rebellion. The rising in the first place appears to have been an insignificant affair. A few settlers were killed, and their famls plundered, but no great alarm was occa sioned at Buluwayo, and it was thought that the rebels would be suppressed with out difficulty. The cablegrams from South Africa since the receipt of the first news of the outbreak, how ever, indicate that the insurgents have daily increased in numbers and in daring. The native police simultaneously with the first outrages deserted to the ranks of their fellow countrymen, carrying with them a large number of rifles and as much ammunition as they could procure. One of the rebel chiefs was proclgimed king, and the dissatisfaction appears to have spread by this time over the whole of Matabeleland. A more serious aspect has been lent to the state of affairs by the fact that the Matabele are fairly well supplied with rifles and ammunition, a...
The Growers and the Mining Industry. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 23 April 1896
'the Growers and th. Mining Industry. AT the Growers Conference luncheon last week in Perth the Chairman, Mr Charles Harper, struck a true note when, in proposing " Success to the Mining Industry," he expressed the opinion that one of the greatest achievements they could accomplish as a body was to wed the interests of the mining industry and those of the agricultural industry. The interests of the two industries are in no way antagonistic, and the party or in dividual who endeavors to set the fol lowers of each in cpposition to one another is not a true friend of either in dustry or of the colony. The mining developments of recent years have given a great impetus to the pastoral, agri cultural, and horticultural industries. The goldfields are splendid markets for produce, but in addition to that they have brought an accession of wealth and population to the metropolis and the various towns of the colony, thus further largely increasing the demand for pro ducers commodities. The adv...

Australian Natives'Associa tion. [From the MINERn of April 20.] WHILE looking to the great nuing industry as the all important factor in the growth and progress of the West Australian Johannesburg, one is too apt to overlook the fdct that that growth may be facili tated to considerable degree by making the social life of the people as attractive as possible. Kalgoorlie h as now reached a stage when its future as thec greatest inland town of the colony can with certainty be predicted. There are large nnmbers of people who have made their homes here, and in a few months there will be a great increase in the proportion of lady residents.

In our last issue, we referred to the inauguration of the Amateur Athletic Club, which, if con tinued on the lines laid down, should in the depar...
