Railway Fatality at Cool gardle. [By TI.EEGRAPH.] COOLGARDIE, April 20. A shocking fatality occurred last night about 11 o'clock on the railway 200 yards from the platform, by which a ganger in the employ of Wilkie Bros., name I Maurice Bowler, was almost decapitated. Patrick Herlihmy, permanent way inspector, was asked for a few particu lars about the matter and said, "I received a message at Kennedy's hotel last night: tli t a man bad been run over reatr the railway platform. and I immediately proceeded with the police to the spot, where I found the body of a man lying across the metals, face downwards. The skin of his neck had been cut,: but the neck had been pressed down ion the rail, and when the d'eceased was lifted up portion of the neck had been forced through his month. His left foot and ankle were bruised, and his right foot was cut across. I identified him as Maurice Bowler by his clothing ; his face was unrecognisable. Bowler was a ganger at the 84 mile from the Cross, a...
SPORTING. MELBOURNE CUP CONDITIONS. MELBOURNE, April 20. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 23 April 1896
SPORTING. MELBOURNE CUP CONDITIONS, (Br TELEdR&APr.) MELBOURNE, April 20. In compliance with ae petitionfrom owners and Itrainers, the V.R.C. has decided to cancel one of the Melbourne Cup conditions, which provided for a penalty of 31b being imposed on any horse winning a handicap race of the value of £500 after the declaration of the weights. No penalty will now be incurred for winning handicalis of less value than £1000, and the alteration should have the effect of increasing the field in several handi caipevents to be run at Caulfield between June and November, most of which are worth more than £500 and less than £1000. Mr Chaffee, representing Colonel North and other English capitalists, is at present on the Yalgoo field, with Mr Skertchly, a mining expert. Mr.Mackay, manager of the Hopes Hill Mine at Southern Cross, states that the out put of the mines has been 10,000ozs of gold from 27,000 tons of stone crushed, valued at £40,000.

BALAGUNDI MINING NEWS. April 20. PARIS GIFT. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 23 April 1896
BALAGUNDI MINING NEWS. (FPROMa OUR COBRESPONDENT.) April 20. PARIS GIFT. News has been received- by private letter, and on very good authority, from Adelaide, that this property is now being placed on the Paris market for no less a sum than £250,000. This certainly is a large sum, but as the' property comp.'ses 36 acres on the line of reef, from nearly end to end of which the reef has a strong blow and considered from assays to be a Sot show, it can hardly be called overcapitalised. With such a pro perty'as this, the district of Balagundi is one that is certain to obtain a large amount of attention. NARATELLA. This property, inasmuch as it adjoins the Paris Gift on the north end, must from its splendid position alone be of considerable value. The owners have commenced to put down a shaft right on the Paris Gift boundary. This will be an underlay shaft, taking out the reef as they go down. In the corner of this block they have already gone down to a depth of iOft on a very good looki...
Kurnalpi News. KURNALPI, April 19. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 23 April 1896
Kurnalpi News. (FROM OUR OOBBRREPONDENT.) KUB?ALPI, April 19. Mining work is being actively proceeded with once more after the late rains. On the majority of leases bailing water has been the principal occupation for the last week or two, but it has been pretty well got under now. In one shaft, however, which had been sunk for water by Messrs Cox and MacFar lane to about 200ft, there is at !present no less than 85ft of water, and the owners compute that she is still making about 2ft per day. How long would the water bogie last in this country with a proper scheme of conser vation 1 I paid a visit to Lake Lapage the other day and saw a stretch of clear water in some directions as far as the eye could reach. A really wonderful strike of stone was made some time last week in Brophy's Consols mine. Through the courtesy of Captain Rodda I was enabled to havea look at this property last week. The spot at which the rich stone was found is just at the intersec tion of the two reefs which tr...
Mining Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 23 April 1896
Mining Notes. One of the big'English purchasers has sent instructions to his manager to put on 20 extra men at once to develop his mines so as to have them ready for the June market in London. Does this fix the month in which the coming boom in Kalgoorlie stocks is to take place ? Mr 8. Harriss, formerly metallurgist of the Great Boulder, has returned to take charge of Hannan's Reward, during the absence of the manager in London. It is an open sneret that he will remain after Mr Cabould's re turn as manager of the big reduction works it isintended to erect at once on the Reward. It will be seen by the report furnished to the London board that dry crushing is to be adopted In the .treatment of the ore of the mine.. It is stated that the reason of the recent big rise in local stocks is that several proper ties held by Adelaide and other companies have been sold to English buyers without any publicity having being given to the fact. If this is so it would account for the rise in the pa...

-r ROBBERY FROM THE HOSPITAl. THE MEANEST OF THEFTS. £10C. FIFTEEN WATCHES, AND A QUANTITY OF JEWELLERY STOLEN. Cases of theft and burglarly are fortunately of rare occurrence in Kalgoorlie, where a vigilant police force have made things very uncomfortable for any representatives of the criminal class who have shown an inclination to take up their residence, but on .iFiiday morning it was made apparent that one, at any rate, of the most despicable villains that ever existed had been for some time in our midst. At about ten o'clock a report was re ceived from the Hospital that the tent of the Secretary and Dispenser, Mr' Stewart, tad been entered, and that-the sum of £100 in cash, a number of watches, and a quantity of trinkets, the property of the patients, had been abstracted from a tin box underneath the table. It has been the custom. in the hospital to take charge of all moneyand valuables in the posession.of patients when they enter for safe keeping, and, as the institution does...

The venture, the first of the kind floated for some months, has already attracted so much attention that the shares are selling at a premium.

This case was adjourned from Tuesday to allow oi the taking of the evidence of Mr A. A. Carlier. Mr Pilkington, who appeared for Cusick, said that he had made great efforts to secure the attendance of MrCarlier,but he had been unsuccessful. A man had been out looking for Mr Carlier all the previous day, and to his (Mr Pilkington's) mind it was clear that he did not wish to give evidence. He would have to request a further adjournment. Mr Henning, for the plaintiff, objected. to any adjournment. Mr Carlier was in town on Wednesday, and could have easily been subpcened.

Black Flag. April 17. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 23 April 1896
Black Flag. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] April 17. The flying survey party in connection with the proposed railway to Menzies made a survey through the township this week. I understand that the management of the Black Flag Proprietary mine have just com pleted arrangements to have 400 tons of machinery conveyed from Coolgardie to the mine. It is reported that a large nnmber of leases are being sold in London at satisfac tory prices. A good number of mining expeits and capitalists have been quietly visiting the field and arranging for the sale of properties. The order of the day here has been the repression and suppression of feel ings of excitement as regards results and discoveries, but it does not require much discernment to learn that a mild boom is immineuft, and from what.i can gathei there is such a strong auriferous backbone on the field that it will stand thh strain. The magnificent sheets of water an the lakes show no signs of diminution. " It will be fully 150 days before...
Smithfield. April 17. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 23 April 1896
* Smithfield. [FROM OURn OwN CORRESPONDENT.] *April 17. The rain of a fortnight ago demonstrates that this district is not so hopeless in respect to water supply as was supposed, for the water now standing in. the lakes would supply 50,000 persons for 12 months if properly conserved. The Warden's office-where is it to be for Smithfield ? To our great surprise our money for applications for leases was refused at Hannans on Tuesday, 14th inst., and we were referred to Kanowna, but that is just as far from here as Kalgoorlie, and if it is to be our place of business a track to get there should be given us, as to go by the present route, via the Lake Hotel, is some six miles out of our way. With reference to the proposed railway to Menzies, we are all very pleased to see the efforts to get it made direct from Kalgoorlie, as unquestionably it should be constructed along that route. It is easy 'to see that the Coolgardie folks in trying to make their town the starting point only want to b...

THE RAILWAY BLOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 23 April 1896
THE RAILWAY 'BLOCK. The number of loaded trucks at Southern Cross or in course of transit on the contractors' line to doolgardie is now being decreased. On Friday there were 242, on Saturday the number had increased to 266, but on bunday it had fallen to 200. Yesterday the number was 147, and it is hoped That the block may be still further reduced to-day. The presence of a large number of trucks on the contractors' line means a corresponding' decrease in the number available on the Govern ment portion of the line. A reduction in the former is therefore viewed by the authorifie " of the traffic branch with satisfaction. -
KALGOORLIE TO MENZIES RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 23 April 1896
KALGOORLIE TO MENZ[ES RAILWAY. A' strong feeling exist: in favor of constructing the line to Menzies along the Kalgoorlie to Menzies route. Those who have examined the merits of the rival routes readily recognise the superiority of that from Kalgoorlie to Mr.nzies, and it is now generally con ceded that such a line would best serve the largest number of persons. There is a section who advocate the con struction of the Menzies line direct from Southernt CrOss, as this would shorten the journey to the metropolis for the people of the Menzies district.
