NEW SOUTH WALES. SYDNEY, April 28. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 30 April 1896
NEW SOUTH WALES. SYDNEY, April 28. George Love, the husband of the woman murdered a couple of days ago, was arrested this afternoon. He had been concealed for about 29 hours in an old disused chimney standing in a brickyard, near the scene of the tragedy. The police had tracked some man from the hotel which was the scene of the butchery to this brickyard. They then lost the trail, but by chance look ing down the soot-coveted shaft of an old chimney they noticed that the plaster in several places had been rubbed off. At the bottom of the chimney shaft runs a drive about 8 feet in length and 2 feet wide, by 21 feet high. To obtain a view of the interior, it was necessary to remove a number of bricks. About a dozn,, had been removed when Constable Walker caught sight of Love as he at tempted to crawl further up the drive. " Come out," demanded the officer. " Right, I will," replied the hunted man, and slowly he backed out of the cramped posilion he had occul ied until he was able to st...
QUEENSLAND. BRISBANE, April 26. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 30 April 1896
QUeEEISLAND. BRISBANE, April 26. A well known shearer, William Gar dour, commritted suicide at Long Reach to-day by taking strychnine. He was formerly of temperate habits, and had saved over £1000 pounds, but he took to drink, and lost everything. Finally, after informing a certain person that he would die like a dingo, he took a dose of poison, and was found dead in. the street. In his pocket was found a piece of paper on which was written, " Direct home on downward career." Two dogs were found poisoned in his tent. It is supposed he first experimented on them.

Several shots were fired before taking effect. Malone escaped by running into the bush. He can give no description of the offenders. The police and black trackers are making an investigation.
TELEGRAPHIC. WEST AUSTRALIA. PERTH, April 28. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 30 April 1896
TELEG RAPHIC. WEST AUSTRALIA. PERTH, April 28. - A peculiari railway mishap occurred in the railway yard, at the rear cf the Fremantle good sheds. A train of empty trucks had just discharged some loads of stone at the end of the south mole, and was being propelled up the line towards the Railway Bay quarries. A truck of sheep by some unaccoun table circumstances was being dis charged at the rear of the good sheds, and there were a number of sheep on the harbour works line of the railway, ihen the trucks approached. The leading trucks crashed into a flock of about 20 sheep. The impetus was such that three trucks were derailed. An examination of the scene dis covered a horrid sight. Ten sheep were mangled and reduced to a pulp by the wheels of the trucks. Some curious allegations were made at the public examination of a debtor in the Bankrupt Court to-day. The debtor, who is David Reed, of the I O U, and who carries on business as a mining agent, in describing a sale which had been ma...

The Sangster Board to-day took farther evidence in the case of the Wendouree. Wm. Clarkson, engineer ing assessor to the Government of South Australia, stated that he had had 20 years experience of engineering on the Tyne and in the colonies. The port coal bunker of the Wendouree was so thin and corroded that it was possible to knock a hole through it anywhere with a chipping hammer. It was un safe to carry coal, and he hardly under stood how it held it. The starboard bunker was in almost an equally bad condition. T'he bilges were very much gone by corrosion, and he had a chipping hammer put through every one of the diagonal plates. They were gone completely and had no strength left in them. The web frame was almost eaten through, and the foremost bulkhead was almnost eaten away. He examined the boilers. ...

Items of News. The tender of Mr R. Tighe for the erection of the new police quarters at Kalgoorlie has been accepted. The petition in favor of the Kalgoorlie Menzies railway was on Wedesnday forwarded by the hon. sees., Messrs F. A. Plumstead and J. O. Browne, to Perth for presentation to the Premier.

He is being carefully nursed, and last night we were glad to learn that he was somewhat easier. Messrs A. P. Matheson and Co. have decided to erect a big block of stone offices for their own accommodation in Maritana street, adjoining the immense iron store nowi being built for them, and commonly known as the railway station.

The Western Argus. PUBLISHED EVERY THURSDAY. THURSDAY, APRIL 30, 1896. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 30 April 1896
PUBLISHED EVERY THURSDAY. THURSDAY. APRIL 30, 1896. ].N the death of Sir Henry Parkes the public life of Australia has lost one of its most remarkable and picturesque figures. For the greater part of the part 50 years the veteran statesman, who has just died, occupied a prominent place among the public men of New South Wales. His bitter antagonism to the last two Ministries, and the peculiarities of his policy during the closing years of his life, should not cause us to forget that he was not always an old man rendered sour because he had been passed in the political race by younger men with fresher ideas. A man who formed no less than five of the Ministries that ruled the destinies of the Mother Colony has had great power, and his work has had an important bearing on the welfare of the people. The influence and power of Sir Henry Parkes were not, however, merely local. His name has become a household wo:d all over Australasia, and his fame was not confined to these colonies, but ex...

Smithfield. [.POM OUR owN CORaESPONDENT.] April 20. The Kingsley Hall Reward was one of the frst leases applied for after the discovery of alluvial gold at Smithfield, and it is situated right among the alluvial workings on:the flat. There is a group of claims bearing the name, but this is one of the fairest prospects. It contains 24 acres and is in course of filototion. in Adelaide. A good deal of work has been done on the lease, the lode being tapped by four shafts in a line along its course, at a depth of about 6Oft in each place, and for a distance of about 100yds. The lode material is about 16ft wide with a slight underlay to the west of about 1 in 6. Itis com-n posed of a variety of substances such as Iron ore (probaibly hematite), white clay (mniis called kaolin), quartz of course, something like decomposed porphry and other eaithy matter, the country rock on both sides being soft clay slate. The average prospect is, I am told equal to three ounces of free gold to the ton. So...
KALGOORLIE TO MENZIES RAILWAY. PERTH, April 27. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 30 April 1896
KALGOOQRLIE TO MVIEN ZIES RAILWAY. (BY TELBORAPH.) PBRTH, April 27. A deputation from Coolgardie waited on the Premier this afternoon, with reference to the proposed Kal goorlie to Menzdes railway. The memr bers were introduced by Mr Moran, M.L.A., who said that whichever line was chosen to Menzies it should be made direct to that town and that the Menzies line should not be dragged from place to place. Mr H. W. Mills believed the proper route for the Menzies line was from Coolgardie, with a loop line from Kal goorlie to other centres. The Premier replying said his own opinion was in favor of the direct route from Coolgardie to Menzies, which he thought was the best one to serve the best interests of the districts en route. The matter would not bet decided by the Government. He would have a report made on the route sug gested by the deputation, and the whole matter wonid come up for discussion in the next session of Parliament.
Treatment for Typhoid. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 30 April 1896
Treatment for Typhoid. THE -Veeer`J pid?iie of phoid which has raged for some months in many portions of the Eastern colonies has caused much prominence to be given in the press to the lest modes of treatment. Fortunately in this district typhoid can not be regarded as very prevalent, and the number of deaths is by no means large, but so favorable a report cannot be given of the other parts of the gold fields. At' Menzies and other places the disease has made great ravages, and any, treatment that lessens the per centage of fatalities is worthy of atten tion, particularly from medical men. The mode of treating typhoid cases that has attracted most notice is the cold bath treatment, which has been practised for many years at the Brisbane Hospital with much success. ' This treatment was first introduced into the Hospital on January, 1st, 1887, by Dr Hare, of Charters Towers, one of the best authorities on the subject living. The medical superintendent of the Brisbane Hospital, Dr J. S...
