TELEGRAPHIC. ADELAIDE, April 15. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 23 April 1896
TELEGRAPHIC. ADELAIDE, April 15. Bertie Gambling, aged about 16 years, was killed yesterday afternoon at the corner of King William and Pirie-streets through a horse and dray passing over him. It had been raining, and the boy appeared to slip down, the wheels then went over his forehead. Death ensued soon after. A man named Fitzgerald has been sen tenced to six months' imprisonment at Port Darwin for cutting the overland telegraph line. He severed the wire on three difEerent occasions. Each time he said he required assistance. The Minister controlling the Northern Territory has received particulars of a new gold find about 20 miles south-west of the Wandi field. ADELAIDE, April 16. It appears now that the Government will not accept the offers of the London medical experts to come to the colony until they have tried to obtain the services of medical men in the other colonies for the Adelaide Hospital; consequently applications have been invited for the position of senior resi dent su...
Fever Epidemic at Menzies. MENZIES, April 20. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 23 April 1896
Fever Epidemic at Menzies. (nY TELEGRAPH.) MENiBss, April 20. A severe fever epidemic has prevailed here for some time past. The hospital is overcrowded, and last month's ex penditure exceeded £350, while the amount to credit was' only £204. There is an urgent necessity for more accommodation, and the Government are bound to assist as long as the pub lic have done all in their power. The post office building must indeed be an unhealthy place. During the last three months there have been nine cases of fever there, three of which have ter minated fatally,' the last to succumb being Mr William Johnson, who died on Satuirday morning and was buried on Saturday afternoon. This young gentleman came over from Victoria quite recently, and was very obliging in manner, and to be cut off so suddlenly at the age of 22 years is indeed a sad fate. The accountant, Mr A. moEd-' mond, was also strickt n down %l.. day, and is very ill indeed in the hos. pital. This mn:kes the ninth case. It seems that...
CRIME AT MENZIES: MENZIES, April 20. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 23 April 1896
CRIME AT MENZIES: [BY TELEGRAPH.] MENZIES, April 20. Burglaries are Of nightly occurrence. Two teamsters were robbed of over .90 on Wednesday night, and Wilson and Co. of £230 on Thursday night. The perpetrators are using daring means to accompli-h their objects. Two of the police are down with fever, and the oether two cannot hope to do day duty and walch the night prowlers. The residents are? arming themselves and are doterminied to shoot any midnight intruders, regardless of consequences. The Government should send assistance at once to capture the daring thieves before they are killed by protective bullets.

'Xacdoniald, J.P., and his partner, Mr Thomas Cosgrove, al legmg that they had obtained certain money by false pi-etences. The tran saction in connection with which the information is laid has regard to the sile of a condensing plant. This matter has been pending during the past two ar three ;diys, as the infor mant had placed the'jiarticulars before his solicitorA at the end of last week, and an application was made to Mr iFinnercy, R.M., for a warrant for tl.e arrest of Macdon;.ll and Cosgrove, but this was rtefused on the ground that the persons against whom the allegations were made were well-known residents of the town, and were not likely to clear out.

LIGHTS ON MINES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 23 April 1896
LIGHTS ON MINES. TO THE EDITOR. Sia,...Kindly allow me space in your columns, which I always appreciate for their fair comment, to call the attention of mining managers near Hannans to the necessity that exists for every shaft where general work is carried on being provided with a conspicuous light at night. From my own observations I can say that those lights were not to be seen on the 16th. There was one glimmering light on one shaft, but many were short of such lights. It is a great pity there are no Mining Inspectors residing in Hannans or near to see that the Mining.Act and regula tions, are carried out as they should be. I am rot prejudiced against mining.managers or any persons individually, but I regret there are men representing properties as managers that should be :occupied elsewhere-in shops or offices for which they are more suited. Sometime in the near future itis to be hoped these so-called mine managers will have aeon spieuous light on their shafts for, the safety of...

Kalgoorlie Amateur Athletic and Gymnastic Club. THE CLUB ROOMS. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 23 April 1896
Kalgoorlie Amateur Ath letic and Gymnastic Club. THE CLUB ROOMS. It is scarcely a month since a meeting was callU to consider the feasibility of starting an Amateur Athletic Club in Kalgoorlie. It was felt by those who attended that meet ing that a club of this kind was much re quired here where recreation is almost a minus quantity in the daily life of the large majority of the people, and it was decided to at once form an amateur club having for its object the promotion of manly sport in all its branches. Certain fixed principles were laid down which have and will be rigidly adhered to. The chief *of these is the exclusion in toto of the professional element. It will be remembered that it was the admission of profes: ionals that speedily ruined the Coolgardie Club, and there is no fear of the Kalgoorlie organisation falling into the same mistake. At the inaugural meeting an influential committee was ap pointed. with Mr Tom Bower as hon. see,, and Mr A. G. Holroyd as hon. treasurer...

Mining Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 23 April 1896
Mining Notes. Messrs Gordon Lyon and Everard Browne are making a tour of our most important mines with a view to investment. It will be re membered that both of them made big fortunes out of the Bayley's Reward mine at Coolgandie. Good gold has been istruck in the Kapai lease near the boundary of the Victoria Cross. It is in the same line of reef as the Cross, and in the jasper quartz, of which the line con sists, the gold does not show much, but the stone crushes well, showing good prospects. The big yield from the Lake View has evidently taken the public by surprise, and has come almost unexpectedly upon the investing public.. It has been- recognized for some time that the mine was a good one, but a three ounce crushing was not thought to be on the cards. The London market continues to improve, and the demand for Kalgoorlie mines for flotation has in consequence improved. One of the well-known representatives of English companies has been buying heavily lately, and has in several ...
BROOKMAN'S BOULDER. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 23 April 1896
BROOQ MAN'S BOULDER. A splendid find has, been made on the Golden Gate, one of the two blocks held by the Brookman Brothers' Boulder Company. At a depth of 105ft after sinking through 60ft of the so called hard diorite of the district the main shaft broke through into a big lode .formation, which now covers the whole of the:bottom of the main shaft 9ftby 4ft. The lode:is.of the. ordinary schistose, ironstone and quarts, nature common to the district. and in places shows, rich gold in the stone, while the average of the whole llde is high. The mine is situated on the- west side of the Boulder road near the Hainault, and adjoins the Kalgurli mines on the west. This is the second reef that hag been struck on the pro. perty, andtis -eryvprobably the Lake View line although some little doubt. exists as to the lines of lodes being worked by the various companies, owing to the fact that very few of the lodes have yet, been traced from property to property. The discovery adds materially to ...
Mining News. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 23 April 1896
Mining News. (BY OUR MINING REPORTER.) One of the oldest residents of Kalgoorlie has done well inthedistrict, and has amply demonstrated his faith in our mines. During three years' residence, he hIis spedt the sum of £170,000 in opening up mining leases in various parts of the field. His plan has always been to buy or peg another block as soon as he has. sold one, and by this means has turned the money over several times. He recently sold nine blocks within a few days. and at the - present time has 20 leases which he is working at his own expense. His wages bill just now amounts to £400 a week, while his scrip in various mines sold and floated in London is worth at market prices £800,000. He has six under ffer to London firms, and expects within a few days to learn that the whole of .these have been taken up by the English buyers. One of the six mines is being floated for half a million, and when the original owner receives his'ditr dend it would probably be a good thingforthe secre...

Board of Directors, George Leckie, General Secretary, and McDowall, member of the Victorian Board, were present.

The latter gentleman had been specially requeste l by the Victorian Board to help along the work of the A.N.A. in this colony. Mr Illingworth, who was received with loud applause, took the chair, and said he was very pleased to be present. He sketched the history of the association since its in ception in Victoria over 25 years ago. He was sure the A.N.A. would be a success in West Australia, because quite a number ...
MINING. THE LAKE VIEW SALE. ADELAIDE, April 16. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 23 April 1896
MINING. THE LAKE VIEW SALE. [BY TELEGRAPBH. (FROM OUR OWN CORREBSPONDNT.) ADBLAIDE, April 16. A meeting of shareholders of the Lake View and Boulder East Company was held to-day to consider the offer for the sale of the property from a rich English syndicate. The directors recom mended the accepting of the offer, because they considered justice was not being done to the mine, owing to the small capital of the company. The provisions of sale included that the company would receive 145,000 fully paid up shares from the new company, and that the working capital, £80,000, should be supplied by the principals, who were represented by Mr Symon. The meeting resolved to support the board on the understanding that 160,00C was substituted for 145000 fully paid-up shares, and that no contract be entered into without the authority of another meeting, which will be held in about a month.
LADY MEDICAL OFFICERS. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 23 April 1896
LADY MEDICAL OFFICERS. Considerable interest was attached to day to the proceedings of the Melbourne hospital committee in consequence of the committee having chosen six resident medical officers from the list of the most successful students .at the University, the number including two ladies, viz, Miss Gamble and Miss Grieg G. Godfrey. It was resolved that the first six candidates on the list be elected. Mr Fink seconded the motion, considering the committee had no power to reject ladies if they wished to do -o. He spoke strongly in favor of their claims. After some discussion, most of which was in favor of giving lady applicants the honors they had worked for, the motion was carried by 12 votes to 8.
