CHAFFEY BROS'. AFFAIRS. A SENSATIONAL REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 23 April 1896

CHAFFEY BROS'. AFFAIRS. A SENSATIONAL REPORT. The report of the liquidat ,rs in the estate of Chaffey Bros. has been com pleted. The liquidators tell the shareholdersi that all the assets of the company have been assigned to the de benture holders by a comprehensive deed. The value of these properties and their nature is described, and attention is drawn to the fact that the iiqui dators -have appealed again st the Supreme Court decision, which places debenture holders in such a privilegedl position. A most exhans tine account is given in the rei ort of the revenues of the company, from its inception and how its receipts were dis bursed. From this it appears that enormous payments were made to indi viduals for such work as the flotation of loans, land, and other services, which it is alleged were not always performed, that guarantees were given in many transac tions that were not enforced, and whether intentional or otherwise the affairs of the company were made subservient to the p...

Hypnotism and Crime, [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 23 April 1896

Hypnotism and Crime, The most sensational judicical episode of this decade was the conviction some months ago in Bummer Co., Las., of Anderson Gray, on the charge of murder. It was sensational because Gray was convicted on the testimody of Thomas McDonald that Gray had exerted an influence over him which caused him to do the killing. It was not charged, we believe, that Gray was present when the deed was dons, but he was convicted, and McDonald, who confessed h .ving dispatched the victim, wasacquitted. There was much discussion in the newspapers on this remark able incident, and it furnished a text for magazine articles on " Hypnotism in Juris prudence." Another chapter in this strange story is now brought out. Under our laws a man who has been tried and acquitted cannot be again arraigned on the same charge. This provision is necessary to guard against per secution; but it sometimes shelterscriminals whose guilt is established by evidence dis covered subsequently to their acquitta...

The Boers and the British. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 23 April 1896

The Boers and the British. In the " Nineteenth Century" for March, Mr . A. Byrden :writes in praise of the Boers, to whom he gives an excellent charac ter. Their superiority to regular fighting. troojs has been demonstrated again and again, and Jameson's mun he obnsiders anu doubtedly superior to British regular soldiers as a South African fighting force. They have again been taught- to onsider their methods of fighting invincible, and the clockof South African progress and unity has been put back 15 years to where it wasin' 1891. .The Boer makes a much better settler thin Vth?

CABLEGRAMS. LONDON, April 15. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 23 April 1896

CA BLEGRAMS. LONDON, April 15. Last evening in the House of C om mons, Mr Gerald Balfour, C hief Secretary for Ireland. introduced the Irish Land Bill. The measure affo rds Irish tenants facilities for purchasing their holdings, and allows tenants two years in which to redeem their land by paying the arrears due, the landlord being free to take legal action for the rents owing for a longer period than two years. The measure further pro vides that the Land Court should fix the specific value of the tenant's interest, and extends the term for re paying the purchase money from 49 to 90 years. In the event of tenants who have been evicted, but whose rents have not been two years in arrears, agreeing to purchase by the land lord, the Land Court under the Act shall decide the value of the improve ments, subject to the right of appeal by either patty. Mr John Morley said that the measure contained so much debatable matter that unless the session were greatly prolonged five-sixths of the Bi...

THE ADELAIDE EXPRESS DERAILED. MELBOURNE, April 15. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 23 April 1896

THE ADELAIDE EXPRtESS DERAILED. (BY TELEGRAPH.) MELBOURNE, April 15. The express train from Adelaide met with a serious accident between Gerang and Dim boola shortly before 3 o'clock this morning. From the meagre particulars to hand it appears that the train, which consisted of an engine, two bogie carriages, one sleeping car, three mail vans, and a brake van, was travel ling along at a good pace when suddenly the train left the rails, bumping off the carriages on the permanent way. This naturally created a great deal of alarm and confusion, amongst the passengers, and luggage was tossed about in the carriages, but fortunately the train was irought to a standstill before any of the carriages toppled over. The officials on the train immediately turned their attention to the passengers who scrambled out of the carriages. Though several complained of a shock none were injured except one lady, who was slightly scratched about the face. The news of the accident was sent to Dimboola and S...

Unseaworthy Vessels. MELBOURNE, April 15. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 23 April 1896

Unseaworthy Vessels. [BY TELEGRAPH.] MELBOURNE, April 15. The board appointed to enquire into the charges brought by Mr Sangster, M.L.A., against the officers of the Marine Board for neglect of duty resumed its sittings to-day. Mr Saugster was not present, but a telegram was received from him stating he was on the Adelaide express, which had broken down at Dimboola. Further evidence was called in support of the charge in reference to the steamer Althorpe. This vessel put back owing to the engineer reporting her leaking. The proper officers of the Marine Board could apparently discover no leaks, but the en gineer found leaks, and the vessel had to be repaired before leaving. A statutory declara tion made by Robert Barclay, chief engineer of the Althorpe was read. He stated that the Althorpe left port for London on November 17 last with a cargo of frozen meat and other produce. When going down the bay he discovered the vessel was leaking, and found 5ft of water in the bilges. The pump...

The Great Southern Railway. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 23 April 1896

The Great Southern Railway. ALL must admit that the Government railways have not of recent years been managed as efficiently as desirabLi. The want of sufficient rolling sty ck, the block of goods at Fremantle, and the innumerable delays and instances of mismanagement are far from creditable to the department, but the:e are few who will not agree that these troubles would be soon remedied were the railways put under better control. Therefore their mismanagement is in no way likely to affect to any considerable extent the - opinion of the public regarding the suggested purchasing by the Govern ment of the Great Southern Railway. The company have made an offer to tjie Government to sell the whole of the works, stock, buildings, and land. The majority of the people of the colonies, and we believe the majority of the people of West Australia are decided in their views as to the superiority of State owned railways over those run by private companies, as far, at least, as the interests of...

Strong Condemnation of Pushes. SYDNEY, APRIL 17. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 23 April 1896

Strong Condemnation of Pashes. [BY TRLEGRAPH.] SYDNEY, APRIL 17. Two young men named William and Isaac Cohen, found guilty at the Quarter Sessions of inflicting grevious bodily harm on Edward Bezbr, were brought up for. sentence this morning. The accused and Berzer had a dis pute over gambling at a club at North Shore. Judge Murrey said the offence had nearly taken the form of murder. It was -only afortunate accident that the brick thrown by Isaac Cohen did not actually cause death. With reference to what happened in the hall before, Bezer may have been wrong, but that was immaterial to the accused, both of whom had deliberately waited outside the hall for Bezer each with half a brick in their hands. Isaac had struck him on the head, and Wil liam had broken his arm. William Cohen had been allied before with those wretched congregations of human blackguards who called themselves "pushes," and wanted whipping off the face of the earth. Isaac had been led away by William, and there was...

ANOTHER SYDNEY TRAGEDY. SYDNEY, April 17. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 23 April 1896

ANOTHER SYDNEY TRAGEDY. [BY TELEGRAPH.] SYDNEY, April 17. The finding last night of the body of Georgina Collins on the Esplanade at Manly furnished a clue to another notable tragedy. Collins' body was found on a seat at about 10.30 p.m. A bullet wound was found behind the ear and a small revolver on the ground, and a man's straw hat on the seat beside her. Inquiries showed that she had left her home at North Shore with Andrew Arkle, who is a resident of Avoca-street., Bandwiok, but Arkle could not be found The body of Collins was removed to the. North Sydney Morgue, and there seemed no likelihood of further developmens during the night. At about 1 o'clock this morning a watchman named Farrell was walking along the harbor beach with a dog when the animal rushed into the water. Farrell walked to the edge and found Arkle, who was still alive, but in a very weak state. He was being washed on the beach by the waves.

Mining News. THE NORTH ROY. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 23 April 1896

Mining News. THE NORTH ROY. At the. North Roy Lease, adjoining the Adelaide Sovereign Syndicate Roy proper. ties, the shareholders have been rewarded for their steady perseverance in opening qp the property. At the 40ft level in the main shaft the formation was unsettled but still gave fair prospects. Sinking was then con. tinued, and at the 80ft level another crosscut was put in with the result that the intrusion has proved to be a well formed reef of sugary quartz carrying ironstone veins, similar in character to the Roy East find, of which it is a continuation. From the hanging wall a very reliable assay resulted in a return of 10oz to the ton of fine and coarse gold, Further tests will be made as driving is pro ceeded with, and it is intended to sink a winze from the 40ft level and put a few tons through the battery to arrive at the true value of the property. Meantime driving will be commenced to the western lode to ascertain its character.
