THE DREDGING INDUSTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 12 January 1900

THE DRED{INtl INDUSTRY. *The latest form of mining for gold and tin in Australia is that of dredging, which has been introduced to the main land by Nev Zealand mining engineers (renrarks a Sydney contemporary). In New Zealand the dredging system of recovering metals (gold chielly) has been a great success, and New Zea land's output of gold has been largely increased by its use. The profits from the system are not due so much to the quantity of gold won as the low cost of its production. In Kalgoorlie one minB has been producing 32,000oz. of gold per month (or a ton in weight) for a long time; yet the dividends are not large. With a bucket dredge at work 25oz. of 'old per wee8k should pay a profit of at 'cast £50 per week. This shows the liffercnce in the two classes of mines. :Whaen using the centrifugal pump and :iant nczzle the cost is somewhat rrcater than with the bucket dredge, but still a grain and a half of gold per cubic yard leaves a profit. The dredg ing bill has now passe...

"INCOG" AT THE FRONT. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 12 January 1900

"INCOG" AT THE FRONT. It is the truth, as well as the com mon gossip of every 'aristocratic club in London, that at least one very near male relation of our Queen is in Natal under an assumed name, and he is only one of many distinguished camp fol lowers who are incognito. Not only is it a fast, too, that more than two-thirds of the officers who were concerned in the Jameson Raid. are once more in South Africa, most of them choosing to keep their exact whereabouts a secret, but there is the additional fact that, through the: very strongest personal influence, some most distinguished ollicers, both of our mili tary and naval services, are at the front under assumed names, though certain of these same olfficers are not even supposed to have leave. Again, an Englishman, who is one of the Ger man Emnperor's closest friends, is pre sent at the front entirely apart from the oilicial German War Ollice r.epro sentative, and he is constantly both writing and telegraphing to the -Em peror, wh...

ZEEHAN WANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 12 January 1900

ZEEHAN WANTS. An influential deputation from the Zeehan Chamber of Commerce was introduced by the Hon. A. Morrisby, M.L.C. The two principal items brought under notice of Ministers were the removal of the Court House from the present site to a more central posi tion and the excessive fares charged on the Government railways during the recent holidays when compared with those of the EmuL Bay line, which was a private company. Mr. Mulcahy met the deputation in a most friendly manner. Regarding the Court-House grievance, he pointed out that both Zeehan and Queenstown were now large and important centres, and might eventually have court business conducted at both centres; but Strahan put in a claim that if a central court were established in the town it might prove suitable for the bulk of those interested. This, however, was a matter for deep consideration, and would not be decided until after the projected visit of the judges to the West Coast. He was, however, of opinion that the pre...

CONSOLIDATED LEASES. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 12 January 1900

CONSOLIDATED LEASES. The last person to seek-an interview with the Minister of Mines was Mr. James Doran, an old prospector and West Coast identity. Doran placed in writing his views on com.panies or syndicates holding several sections, and probably only a limited amount was expended on one of the sections held. Doran's ideas pleased Mr. Mulcahy extremely, who said he knew of sections which had been held at Zeehan for the past 12 years on which he felt certain £5 had not been spent. The matter would certainly re ceive his careful consideration.

HOSPITAL BOARD MATTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 12 January 1900

HOSPITAL BOARD MATTERS. A deputation was introduced by Mr. J. C. Whitelaw, and matters of finance were gone into. Ministers were evidently in union with the work and general ideas of the Hospital Board, and recommendations were made.by Ministers as to the man ner in which the books of the board should be prepared, thereby plainly showing the several respective ac counts. By this means it would facill tate matters with the Audit Depart ment and allow of an equitable allot ment of the amount by which the hos pital is subsidised on the pro rata prin ciple.

MR. GLADSTONE'S SALARIES [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 12 January 1900

MIi. GLADSTONE'S SALARIES Mr. Gladstone first took office in 1834, beginning at the very bottom of the class by being named a Lord. of the Treasury; the salary was £1000 a year. But as he was appointed. In December, 1834, and in January, 1835, became Under-Secretary for the Colonies, a lynx-eyed Treasury may be depended upon to have seen that he was paid strictly in proportion to the time of service. He held the Under-Secretaryship for the Colonies till April, 1835. This post has attached to it a salary of £1500 a year. It is probable that the total amount received in the way of salary by Mr. Gladstone at this some what disturbed start was £ 600. From September, 1841, to May, 1843, he was Vice-President of the Board of Trade, drawing £1500 a year. Twenty five hundred pounds .may in rough figures be put down for his term. From December, 1845, to July, 1.846, he was Secretary of State for the Colonies, with a salary of £5000 a year. If he drew £3000 for the seven months he would be re...
