TELEO RAPHIC. PEBRT, April 28. The Executive yesterday dealt with the case of Goulam Mahomet, sen tenced to death. It was decided that the death sentence should be carried out, but no date was fixed for the execution. At Fremantle, a fishing boat called the Rover struck a reef at Peron Point on Tuesday night, and sank. One man named " Sam " is missing.

He has been app inted commander of the forces .n gaged in the suppression of the Mata bele revolt, and sails on Saturday. A report is current that Bulawayo is completely surrounded by the Matabele. Several sharp skirmishes have taken place between the rebels and the Char tered Company's outposts in Buluwayo. It is considered that Buluwayo is im pregnable, but ccmpetent judges fear the treachery of the natives within the town. The Matabele rebels are engaged in raiding the cattle close to Bullwayo. Two thousand Boer: are said to be assembled within 25 miles of Mafeking, and are ostensibly engaged in prevent ing the spread of rinderpest among cattle, but suspicions are entertained that a raid is contemplated by them.

The Storyteller. A BICYCLE RIDE FOR LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 30 April 1896

The Storyteller. A BICYCLE RIDE FOR LIFE. I intended to break the record, as the slang phirase goes-no very difficult matter, I re flected, so far as a Canladian winter record on a bicycle was concerned. To do so, however, required judgment. I knew I had the long rise in forest before me and I must reserve myself for that. I went steadily on ! I had crossed the level at last, and I knew I had done well. The light was bright cIQtugh-to see the time, but I decided to wait until I entered the forest. It was no longer quite so easy to keep the bicycle up to speed. 'I'here was more effort in the pressure on the pedals, a little more sensation in the muscles of the legs, as I did so. I looked round. Yes, I had alreadly made a rise of a good many feet. The slope was regular, but not steep enough greatly to reduce my speed. As I went I glant?ed from side to side-for I was conscious of the oppressive solitude of the forest; but my pace was not retarded for a moment. One of: the sleighing par...

Wesleyan Church. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 30 April 1896

Wesleyan Church. The Rev. H. Wilkinson,the minister newly appointed to to take charge of the Wesleyan Church, arrived in Kalgoorlie on Saturday afternoon, and conducted his first services here on Sunday. The preacher quickly fond that the small building was utterly inade quate to accommodate the numbers who flocked to the evening service. Not only was the church crowded to its utmost capacity, but fully a hundred were at the door unable to get in. The preacher took for his text Eom. 115-" So as much as in me, I am ready to preach the Gospel to you that are in Rome also." Mr Wilkinson said. that if "Kalgoorlie" were subsituted for   " Rome," the text expressed both his feeling and purpose. By many the Gospel was misunderstood and misinterpreted, and he wanted to state some particulars which would be made prominent in his preaching. First of all the Gospel was not merely to get people ready to die; rather it was to teach them how to live, how to make the best of their liv...

Mount Ferrum. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 7 May 1896

Mount Ferrum. With regard to Hannan's Mount F'errum, I understand that the launching of this mine has given a distinct' fillip to the West Australian mining market. In fact, it is not too much to say that no more promising Westialian property has been floated here this year, tad -I am not surprised to hear that the shares have been freely dealt in to .day t 10Os preliium,, being an advance of 2s 6d on yesterday's price. The directorate is such as to inspire the utmost don fide?ice. The chairman is Sir JamesGarrick, late Agent-General for Queensland, and ihe has for.his .colleagues on the board Mr James Head, Mr T. S. Hall, trustee of the Mount Morgan mine, and Mr W. K. ]'Arcy, chair man '6fthe Mount Morgan mine. It may not begenerally known that the magnificent mining property has paid in dividends during the last nine years nearly fQgir millions sterling, and is now paying attkie rate of £25,000 a month,-or Gd per share. . The property to be ,aoquired comprises 83 aeres on the famo...

General Items. In the public schools of Germany the bright pupils are separated from the stupid ones. Medical men do the sorting. At a recent fashionable wedding itn ChiCago, the bride, a widow, was given away at the altar by her son, whose age is 10 years. The chief firm of British blacking manu facturers turns out three hundred million cakes of blacking a year, or one for every five individuals in the World. In reply to a questicn as to what he con siders the most important problem, now, before the 1public, Mr Chamberlain is re ported as saying : "How to dodge a bicycle." There is a craze amongst ladies in America just now for whist, and several professional players are earning a good deal of money by going round and giving series of lessons in the game.

COOLGAttDIE NEWS. [FROu OUR OWN CORRNSPONDENT.] [By TELEGRAPH.] May 4. William Essex was charged at the Police Court this morning with uplawfully obtain ing the sum of £3 from James Ware, by representing that he was entitled to £5 for wages, whereas he was only entitled to £2.. The prosecutor admitted that he had paid the money without consulting his books, an: Essex was discharged. Inspector M'Kenna and some of his con stables made a raid on timber stealers last Friday, and captured a number, who were brought before the Police Court this morn ing. Although there is absolute prohibi tion against cutting timber on the. forest reserve within two miles of the muni cipal boundary, John Hooly attempted to dispute the fact, but the direct question of the R.M. extorted the truth, and be was fined £5. Edward Castello, George Nor man, William Gordon, and R. Pascoe owned up to the devastation of the timber, and were each fined £2 lOs, the R.M. cautioning the offenders that they had made thems...

The Residence Areas. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 7 May 1896

The Residence Areas. At Monday night's meeting of theiMunicipal Council, Or McKenzie referred to the recent throwing open of a residence area site, and the manner.. in which a large portion of the blocks had been pegged out .by. one person. He said that on Friday afternoon, Warden Davis announced that a certain piece. of ground south-west of the town was available. for residence areas. One individual had the audacity to peg out nearly the whole of the blocks at daylight, next morning, and now. anybody requiring a residence area had to go to this man 'and biargain with him for a block., Thils was not as it should be, and the Council, in the i.'nterests of the tbwn, should interfere. He would move that the Warden be written to, and asked to prevent the dummying of residence area blocks, as the 'Conncil are credibly informed that such is going on. Cr Roberts seconded the motion. 'The Acting-Mayor said he had heard some extraordinary accounts of the .way the resi deuice areas Were being...

Negligence of the Mines Department. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 7 May 1896

Negligence pf the Mines Department. After the conclusion of Warden's Couft business on Tuesday Mr Jodrell addressed the Warden in regard to the application of Mr Varden on behalf of the Brown Hill Com pany for a water right. The application had n recommended by the Warden, but the papers were missing. The Mines Department in Perth were hopelessly fogged on the subject, as the telegrams in his possession would show. Some official in Perth had got it into his head that Mr Varden wished to obtain a water area on the Blrons Hill lease, whereas the area he was applying for was a mile distant from the mine. The telegrams received from the Mines Depart ment were as follows: "8th April, 1896. If Warden satisfied mines ; roducing more water than required for mining purposes, he is authorised to grant water rights over them, on your paying usual fee. Please communicate with me." ".18th April, 1896. I have wired Warden as to water right, presuming that as you want it in name of lessee of the g...

The Wednesday Half-Holiday. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 7 May 1896

The Wednesday Half Holiday. IT is an old adage that " All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy," and ar there are few if any persons in the com munity who have longer working hours than shop assistants, all right thinking persons must admit that they thoroughly deserve a relaxation from their labors on one afternoon in the week. We are glad to say that the Wednesday half holiday has been established for months in Kalgoorlie. Recently some of the new arrivals did not seem disposed to recognise the institution, but the Early Closing Association promptly took the affair in land with the result that all the leading business people of the town agreed to continue to keep their establishments closed on Wednesday afteinoons. The suggestion has been frequently made that the day should be altered, as many of the residents of the surrounding district come to Kalgoorlie on Wednesdays to despatch and receive their mails. The Association rightly point out that in a few weeks, when the railway i...

The Uitlanders' Sentences. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 7 May 1896

The Uitlanders' Sentences. A STARTLING development has taken place in affairs in the Transvaal through the severity of the sentences passed on the leaders of the Johannesberg Re formers. Surprise and indignatior. has been generally expressed at the result of the trials, but it may almost be regarded as a certainty that the death penalty will not be executed, and that the punishment in the other cases will be` much reduced. The 'pri soners, it should be remembered, pleaded guilty to a charge of high treason. This is an offence punishable by death throughout almost every country in the world, including the British Empire, and during the Fenian trouLles in Ire land many men were sentenced to be hanged who were guilty of no graver offence than that committed -.,by the leaders of the Reform Committi?. The Tansvaal authorities, in order thit their prisoners should have fair play, decided that they should be tried not by one of their own judges but by a judge from the Orange Free State. Th...

Separate Gold Returns. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 7 May 1896

Separate Gold Returns. THERE is a good prospect of a large in crease in the output of gold from tlis district in the near future. The last crushing of the Great Boulder was a record, not alone for the mine but for West Australia The yield for the fortnight was 3,155ois, and as the battery will be shortly increased to 30 head of stampers the returns, no doubt, will be considerably augmented. Several ot.:er mines in the district are on the eve of being provided with additional stampers, and crushing will become more general with the advent of the railway and the requisite machinery. Under these circumstances it is necessary for the residents of Klalgoorlie and the neighbourhood to strongly protest against the present system by which the gold yield of this district is included in the returns for another district. This locality is altogether ignored in the official re turns, notwithstanding that its yield is much heavier than that of any other district in the colony. This is palpably un...

West Australia and the Transvaal. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 7 May 1896

West Australia and the Transvaal. Tan old saying that what is one man's meat is another man's poison is not altogether inapplicable to the present state of affairs inl the Transvaal. Ac cording to the South African' Press since the recent crisis occurred, there has been a considerable diversion of capital from President Kruger's country, and there can be little doubt that much of this will find its way to West Aus tralia. The Mining World of March 14 is responsible for tl'e statement that brokers in their letters are accustomed to read now the following words which had no place in them five months ago : -" We "refer that you should select for us Westralian ventures, as we are not disposed to invest in Transvaal com panies of any sort." Tlhe same authority adds that brokers are also accoust ,med to read words like these : " Please sell such and such a Transvaal share, and place the proceeds in th~ promisin Westralians."

East Province Election. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 7 May 1896

East Province Election. THE constitution of the Legislative Council provides that at the expiration of two years from the date of election, and every two years thereafter the senior member for the time being for each pro vince retires. In accordance with this, the Hon. Richard Watson Hardy, senior member for the East Province, retires in September next. This fact cannot be too early or too widely made known on these goldfields, which form portion of the East Province. En paesant it may be pointed out that a re-distribution of seats is as urgently needed as regards the Legislative Council as the Assembly, and the ques tion should be given a prominent place by both electors and candidates. The East Province includes seven Assembly electorates, but the increase of popula tion. chiefly in the Yilgarn electoral district of recent years, fully justify the division of the Province into three Council electorates. Of course, it would be necessary that there should be a re distribution of sea...
