The Kalgoorlie to Menzies Railway. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 30 April 1896
The Kalgoorlie to Menzies Railway. Now that the survey of the proposed Kalgoorlie to Menzies railway has been promised we trust the committee will not rest from their labors in the 1,efief that victory has been won. The direct route from Kalgoorlie to Menzies has so many and such great recommendations that the committee may be tempted to cease from their efforts to advance its claims from the conviction that no Gb vernment having the interests of the country at heart, and having the merits, of the rival routes before them, would construct the railway to Menzies in other than a direct line from Kalgoorlie. The Broad Arrow, Smithfield, Paddington, and Bardoc districts are as rich, if not richer, than Menzies, and are just as much entitled to railway communication. In fact a line to these places in the near future is absolutely necessary, but it would be sintply absurd to serve them by a railway which first went north-east to Mount Burgess, then north-west to 25-Mile, and then north-ea...

The Progress of West Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 30 April 1896
The Progress of West Australia. VITAL statistics and financial returns for the first quarter of the year show in a striking manner the marvellcusly rapid strides the colony is making in population and wealth. The quarter's increase in population is estimated to be 15,944 or slightly over 15 per cent, and is enormously greater than that of the previous quarter, which was calculated at 6862. The excesstof arrivals in the colony over tdepartures during the quarter was 15,876. Most of the immi grants come from the Eastern Colonies, all the efforts of the Press of the neigh bouring colonies having failed to deter them from travelling Westward. The rate at which the population of the colony is increasing is shown by the fact that the increase during the whole of last year was 19,163, or but 3219 greater than that of the first quarter of the present year. A specially pleasing feature of the leturns is the increase in the munber' of the fair sex who are coming to the colony. The proportion ...

Disturbance in Hannans Street. EXCITING SCENES. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 30 April 1896
Disturbance in Hannans Street. EXCITING SCENES. For months past the MINER has had reason to congratulate the people of Kal goorlie on the good order observed in the streets. On Saturday evenings the streets have been crowded with thousands of persons, but rows have been the exception, and the police have had comparatively little to do. More recently, however, the authorities have been taking steps to check the use of filthy language in public, and in their en deavours in this direction they have had the sympathy of all those who wish to see Kal goorlie become a town in which women may reside without being offended by hearing foul expressions made use of. It was in making an arrest on a charge of disorderly conduct which included the use of bad language that a scene, which it is to be hoped, will never be re-enacted in our streets, occurred early on Saturday night. It was shortly before 9 o'clock on Saturday night that Constables Riddell and McDonald took a man named Martin Lilis int...
Bardoc Notes. April 23. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 30 April 1896
Bardoc Notes.. April 23. The satisfactory crushing from the Excel sior of over 5oz per ton referred to last week has resulted in a big demand being made for properties on the Excelsior line, and the fact of the water difficulty being overcome in Bardoc is now fully recognised by the leading investors on the eld, who are daily picking up the good things here. Snowden's 9-acre block near the Queens lander, on the line of reef of that name con tinues to open up splendidly, some remark ably rich stone having been raised yesterday. The Queenslander owners will, I understand. resume operations next Monday, 27th inst. their somewhat lengthy exemption expiring on that date. The election for the new Progress Com mittee resulted in Mr B. Leslie being re turned at the top of the poll, the following being elected in the order named :-Messrs A. Laidlaw, S. Bridges, A. Gath, W. Ash worth, R. Pym, T. O'Loughlin. J. Blacker. and T. Monaghan. The first meeting of the yew committee was held on Monday...
DEATH OF SIR HENRY PARKES. A PEACEFUL END. SYDNEY, April 27. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 30 April 1896
DEATH SIR HENRY PARKES. A PEACEFUL END. (BY TELEGRAPH.) SYDNEY, April 27. Sir Henry Parkes died shortly after 4 o'clock this morning. His condition had shown considerable improvement, but failure of the action of the heart occurred, and he died somewhat suddenly. The only persons with him at the time of his death were Lady Parkes and the Misses Parkes, and Dr O'Connor, who has been constantly in attendance. Since Monday last it was noticed that Sir Henry had changed for the worst, the heart's action having become de cidedly weak. A restorative was applied, 'and for a time the venerable statesman rallied. Hope was enter tained that he would pull through. As last night wore on, however, it was observed that he was gradually sinking and despite all efforts he succumbed a few minutes after 4 o'clock. The end was very peaceful. During the last few days he hoped in a large measure to regain his health. Yesterday Sir Henry seemed rather better, although he could not speak, and he only seem...

Mining Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 30 April 1896
Mining Notes. A winding plant has been obtained for Tindal's mine. Mr G. W. Froggart is the new manager of the Hannans Eureka. It is reported that a good reef has been found 10 miles south-east of Woolgangie, where a likely looking belt of auriferous country is being prospected. Some very nice specimens has been brought in from the Struck Oil mine near Bardoc: The quartz carries coarse gold all through it, and the reef is described as a very rich one. Mr C. Kaufman, who has invested so heavily in our mines on behalf of his com pany, returned to Kalgoorlie on Wednesday evening accompanied by Mr H. L. Conran.

The only questions they had to consider were: Firstly, was there any necessity for the line; and secondly, was the expenditure justifi able. Ona an occasion such as that they would understand he was not desirous of...

Mr Pilkington for the applicant. Mr Pilkington raised the point that the court had no jurisdiction to hear any objec tion before survey, and pointed out that this objection was an atteipt to raise an objec tion to the issue of leases after the 80 days grace had expired. The Warden ruled as follows :-I have no jurisdiction to hear the objection to survey in this form, as it amounts to an objection to issue of the lease, and I cannot see how the survey, if made, can interfere in any way with the rights, if any, of J. Callaghan to the same area. I therefore dismiss the objection but do not allow costs." EXEMPTION APP...
