IVANHOE SOUTH EXTENDED. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 13 February 1896
IVANHOE SOUTH EXTEND)ED. Considerable progress has been made with the work of developing this property, and already two shafts have been carried down to a depth of over 100ft. The claim is situ ated south-west of the Ivanhoe mine on the same run of country as the Ivanhoe West mine, one of the Great Bouhler blocks. It is probable that the lode which traverses the last-named mine will be picked up in the Ivanhoe South Extended block, and at present the work in hand is being carriedl on with a view to accomplishing this and also to cut a supply of water. In tme north shaft the manager is putting in a drive at the 100ft level to cut the lode which is believed to run between this working maid the company's east boundary. This is in 12ft and will be pushed on as rapidly as possible. The country nmet with in cross-cutting is very -soft-ainnd-4t is exIpectaed- thea ItIhi °i c fi weeks the value of the ground will be tested.

THE GREAT BOULDER. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 13 February 1896
THE GREAT BOULDER. The Great Boulder still maintains its lead as the biggest gold mine in West Australia, and promises to long maintain its supremacy. The company holds a vast block of land in the midst of the richest group of mines the worldl has ever seen, and as yet its resources are scarcely known even to those ,most inti mately connected with its working. The six blocks held by the mining corporation tion contain over one hundred acres, andl through this block of territory several lines of reef are known to run, while as yet no ore has been taken from any save a small section of one of the reefs. Very little has been done to open up the vast resources of the mine, but it is to be hoped the time is not far distant when there will be 100 head of. stamps at work on the property, and a start made to do the resources of the mine justice. The Boulder lode, as the reef now being worked at the junction of the two southmost blocks of the location is known, has been opened up for about 9...

- LoNDo, February 4. Troopers in the SouLth African -Chartered Company's service, who have arrived in England, allege that there is strong evidence that Presi .dent Kruger forged telegrams to Dr fJameson, which caused the invasion of the Transvaal. Friction has been caused at Johan :nesburg owing to the arrogance of the German police. Ten residents have Ibeen assaulted and unable to obtain ,redress. Mr. John Morley, criticising the _Marquis of Salisbury's speech, in which Ithe Premier declared that England is Inot bound to take up arms on behalf .of the oppressed Armenians, asserted 'that such an utterance means the efface ,ment of British influence from Turkish :affairs. The Sultan is reported to be highly satisfied with Lord Salisbury's declara 'tion, and has ordered his Ambassador 'to express his thinks to his lordship. It is reported that America has de *cided, if necessary, to compel Turkey t'o pay the indemnity demanded for the *destruction of American missions in Armenia. It ...

Bardoc Notes. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) Work is now in full swing on most of the mines here, although there is a scarcity of labor, and more men are wanted. As mentioned in a previous letter, work was carried on during the exemption on the Excelsior, three shiftsbeing reg ularly em ployedl driving in the water shaft. Addi tional men have been put on during the last few days, and development work is prIocee ing briskly under the manuagement of Mr. McLellan. On the Homeward Bound (12 acres), ad joining the Excelsior on the north, work has been resumedl, and a drive is being put in to the cast at the 100ft. level by the parties who have recently taken this pinoperty nlder offer. On the Wollongong, a small block of four acres, work has been suspended some time, owing to its having been jumped recently. Tihe same remarks apply to a 12-acre block adjoining, and known as Gorman's Show. Travelling still northwards, we come to the Waterloo, a 12-acre block ownled .by Leslie, Ryan and par...

Death Rate of Kalgoorlie and the Vicinity. ONLY 11 DEATHS IN 6 MONTHS. NO SERIOUS TYPHOID OUTBREAK ANTICIPATED. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 13 February 1896
Death Rate of Kalgoorlie and the Vicinity. ONLY 11 DEATHS IN 6 MONTHS. NO SERIOUS ilTYPOliID OUTBREAK ANTI'CIPATIED. Dr. Barber, the medlical officer of health for Kalgoorlie, has supplied the Board of Health with the following report : "Since August 1, 1895, to February 5. 11 deaths have occurred in the Kalgoorlie town ship and within a radius of five miles around as follows :--Three from typhoid, four from influenza and pneunmonia., one from dysen- tery, one from marasmus (an infant seven months old).and two from accidents. One of the typhoid and one of the accident cases came from without the district. The population of the district in August was roughly esti- mated at 4.000. and has been rapidly increas- ing, and is now probably 7 000. In October and November influenza was prevalent. There was a slight increase in the number of typhoid cases of a mild form admitted to the Hospital in January. There seems no reason to anticipate any serious outbreak of typhoid fever.

Gold Export Returns. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 13 February 1896
Gold Export Returns. To compare a bald statement of the returns of the gold exported during January with the amount sent out of the colony during December and during the corresponding month of 1895, might lead a person not acquainted with important facts bearing on the figures to suppose that the gold industry is declining. The press and the stay- at-home public of the other colonies will doubt ignore everything but the actual figures, and we may look forward to their being used as an argument to show that the fields are being worked &nbsp; out, and to warn miners and others against going Westward. A different aspect is given to the returns when a &nbsp; few points not revealed in a mere state- ment of the figures are taken into con- sideration. For instance, a second's thought is only necessary to explain how the quantity of gold entered for export in January was 1540ozs less than the return for December. The exemptions began on 16th December and lasted all through ...

QUEENSLAND. &nbsp; THE NORTHERN FLOODS. BRISBANE, February 11. The amount collected in aid of the Townsville flood relief fund now amounts to £484. At Rockhampton rain fell last night and this morning, registering 460 points. Low lying lands hitherto dry are submerged. Steps are being taken to protect the Fitzroy bridge by guying it with 3in steel ropes, and by diverting the current from the piers. Comet River and Dawson's Creek are still over the railway bridges, and the lines are covered with water for miles. Communication with Charters Towers is cut off.
