THE GOLD INDUSTRIES OF W.A. DIRECTORS' DUTIES AND TEES. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 27 September 1913
THE GOLD INDUSTRIES OF W.A. &nbsp; DIRECTORS' DUTIES AND FEES. When the Gold Industries of W.A. was floated, an impression got abroad that at last a company had been form- &nbsp; ed that would materially help the min- &nbsp; ing industry along to prosperity; yet it has done nothing but take advan- tage of the Bullfinch boom to earn good profits. For a time there was a lot of talk about a slimes plant on Billy Hills up north, but all the talk and expenditure ended in smoke and loss. Later several other properties came under the notice of-the company &nbsp; with the ambitious title, but the latest report shows how the mighty have fallen to the level of a public benefit for the directors. In icy terms the re- port says, "Nothing has been done during the past year." Then with a &nbsp; &nbsp; cast-iron impudence it goes on to state that the directors (Messrs. Shallcross, Black and Pilkington) have confined their year's labors to the passing...
GEOLOGICAL SURVEY WORK IN AUGUST. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 27 September 1913
GEOLOGICAL SURVEY WORK IN AUGUST. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; _______ &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; On the 13th nlto., the Government Geologist left for Feysville to inspect the work carried out there by Mr. &nbsp; Honman. Later onhc proceeded over &nbsp; land to Parker's Range, in South Yil- garn, where. Mr. T. Blatchford, assis- tant geologist, was engaged in field work. During ths earlier portion of the month, the Assistant Government Geo- logist (Mr. Woodward), was engaged at Mandurah on investigations of the limestone deposits of the State for the Department of Agriculture. Mr. Talbot, Field Geologist, was en- gaged during the month in continuing his flying survey to the north of Peak Hill. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Field work in connection with the detailed survey of Meekatharra en- gaged the attention of Mr. E. de Courey Clarke, Field Geologist. Mr. P R. Feldtmann, Field Geologist...
SPORTING. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 27 September 1913
SPORTING. The "Sunday Times" says:— "The Australian lightweight, Jack Read, who crossed over to America from Sydney with Sam Langford, seems to have cut an inglorious figure in his first battle in Uncle Sam's country. Cabled from Philadelphia that in a cheduled 15-round bout with a local lightweight named^Sam Robidean, &nbsp; Read was almost knocked out in the fifth round, and in the sixtth round the referee stopped the fight, presumably to prevent the Australian receiving further punishment. Read is the lad over whom Dick Cullen got the verdict, on a foul in Sydney, some time, ago, and from whom Alf Morey wrested the Australian residential championship. &nbsp; Cullen tried hard to induce Read to come to Perth, but the call of America was too strong, and Read accompanied Langford and party." Read's victor is a stranger to these parts, but surely that was not the Australian's best form. He was always regarded as a nice, clean fighter this side of the At- lantic, and i...

VALEDICTORY. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 27 September 1913
VALEDICTORY. &nbsp; On Monday evening last by the ex press to Perth, one of the town's old identities in the person of Ernie Millen put off for Merredin, where he will now be located in business for some &nbsp; time. Mr. Millen, it may be stated, is a brother of Senator Millen, the pre- sent Minister for Defence. During his sojourn in the Old Camp he has been closely associated with almost one and all. Apart from being "hale fellow, well met," Ernie was classed &nbsp; &nbsp; as an expert crib player, and no doubt he will be missed by mine host and hostess of the Denver City, with whom many a friendly and keen game &nbsp; was played. Before departing Mr. Millan was accorded an impromptu send-off at the Denver by a few of his many friends, and again at the station a number had assembled to say good bye and wish him every prosperity in his new sphere. This paper also wishes him success and good health.
The Coolgardie Miner Published Weekly SATURDAY, SEPT. 27, 1913 WHY COOLGARDIE SHOULD LOOK UP. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 27 September 1913
The Coolgardie Miner Published Weekly SATURDAY, SEPT. 27, 1913 WHY COOLGARDIE SHOULD &nbsp; LOOK UP. (Special for "Coolgardie Miner.") &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; To one who has carefully investiga- ted the mining industry of Coolgardie and examined the lode formations as they are now available for inspection, the only apparent reason why the Old Camp is not more prosperous is that gold mining is not now " fashionable" &nbsp; &nbsp; and, in consequence, it is difficult to obtain the capital, however small, that is required to develop some of the local properties. But there is a better time &nbsp; coming. The inevitable swing of the pendulum is this way again. The dis- trict has proved itself by its increased gold output. Last year its returns were 8,000 ounces in advance of anything for five years, and the progress now being made indicates that the year 1913 will be very much better still. ...
A NARROW ESCAPE. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 27 September 1913
A NABROW ESCAPE. When coming in from Marda, Messrs. Charley Jones, C. S. Lochhead, W. Grant and A. M. Mclntyre were thrown out of the motor car, since when the latter has not been getting along too well .Fortunately, a large box whieh was tied on to the side of the car pre- vented what might have been a most serious accident. Ford cars seem to have a habit of turning turtle on Yil- garn, for it is is not many weeks since &nbsp; one capsized near Yellowdine, and the occupants were saved by a case of naphtha. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;

ITEMS OF INTEREST. '' The Coolgardie Miner"— On and &nbsp; after our next issue the price of the paper will be one penny instead of twopence as hitherto. Painful Accident. — On Thursday last Mr. J. Cecil, of the Lady Robin- &nbsp; son Burbanks, met with a painful accident whist attending to his duties by treading in some hot ashes, thus causing his foot to be severely burned. &nbsp; &nbsp; Fresh Air League.— We have re- ceived particulars from the committee &nbsp; of the above league that, owing to &nbsp; the success of the recent euchre party and dance, they have handed &nbsp; over to the honorary secretary (Mr. &nbsp; A. P. Wymond) the sum of £14 3s. &nbsp; A Tin Field —Mr. G. Stewart, of Boulder, has made application for a tin mining lease about a mile and a half from the Prince of Wales mine at U?i?i. From an assay taken, Mr. Hewart secured an average of 78 per cent., which is a most encouraging result. &...
Girls' Friendly Society. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 27 September 1913
Girls' Friendly Society. On Thursday evening last a dance was held in the Parish Hall under the auspices of the above society. A good attendance of friends of the society were present, and altogether a most enjoyable evening was spent. It must be said that great credit is dne to those at the head of this society for the very nice evenings arranged from time to time. Not only do they give the outside public a chance of mixing with the members, but apart from that the leaders are doing good work in keeping the girls together, as the society is carried on with the object of giving them an opportunity of gaining intellectual as well as social know- ledge.
Coolgardie Boys. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 27 September 1913
Coolgardie Boys. To the Editor. Sir,— It is with regret that one &nbsp; feels it is his duty in a small com- munity such as ours to have to comment on the behavior of some of the boys of our town. I do not wish. to infer that they are larrikins, but certainly do think that if they considered for a while, more especially those of whom are bordering on manhood, they would realise for themselves that it is far better for their future welfare if they acted more gentlemanly when in the streets than some of them do at present. I do not wish to infer that every boy in the town is of this kind, but there is certainly a few who seem to think that the streets are the place for their little bit of rowdyism. Al- though we do not wish to see our boys brought up before the magis- trates, it is most pleasing to notice that the police intend taking a hand in this direction and keep one or two from not behaving themselves as they should. However, I trust that for the future the boys of our t...
A GAME OLD COUPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 27 September 1913
A GAME OLD COUPLE. _________ About a year ago old Jack Ryan and his wife (who are both into the sixties) shouldered their worldly belongings at Bullfinch and trudged to Mt. Jackson. After looking at some of the leases there, they bought some tucker and started out through a trackless wilder- ness for Payne's Find, a distance of 150 miles as the crow flies. With high hopes and light tucker bags they set off as cheerfully as though they were going to a picnic, and as this old cou- ple have got over thousands of miles of the fields per boot, everyone who knew them felt confident that they would get through with safety. Yet, the time must come when they shall cease to tramp and their beloved bush will claim them for ever. Let it be hoped that such pluck and endurance will reap the rich reward it deserves, and that old Jack and Mrs. Ryan will locate enough of the precious metal to enable them to end their days in com- fort.
Town Gossip [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 27 September 1913
Town Gossip During the week a quiet wedding was celebrated in St. Mary's Church, Coolgardie, the contracting parties be- ing Mr. Bert Campbell, of Higgins- ville, and Miss Fitzgerald, of Fre- mantle. The marriage rites were con- ducted by Dr. O 'Hurley. Our Sunday contemporary has taken exception to the fact that in two re- cent police court cases concerning charges laid against local hotel keepers that the Bench made a wide margin in the fines inflicted upon the &nbsp; licencees. In the one case, a fine of 10/ and costs was imposed, whilst in the other a fine of £5 and costs. It is &nbsp; not our intention to dictate the law to our Sunday scribe, but if he should get hold of the charges laid he would find that the cases were laid under two distinct sections of the Act. In the one there is a maximum fine of £2, and in the other a minimum of £5 with a maximum of £50. The one ease was for having other than bona-fide travel- lers on the premises after hours, whilst the ...
A PREDICAMENT [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 27 September 1913
A PREDICAMENT. Mr. Poodle knew well the value of &nbsp; an initial laugh which it is so neces- sary to introduce into the beginning of a speech to put the audience into &nbsp; a good temper, and especially so when a discussion of some weighty subject is to follow. "Astronomy tells us," he began, "according to our learned friend who &nbsp; has just sat down after his most in teresting remarks on that fascinating science , that an express train, travel- ling at the rate of one hundred miles a second, would take several million years to reach a certain star." &nbsp; &nbsp; He paused and beamingly looked &nbsp; round on the assembled company. &nbsp; "That was the statement," said &nbsp; a neighbour. &nbsp; "I was just thinking, "went on Mr. &nbsp; &nbsp; Poodle, "what, a predicament a man &nbsp; would be in if he missed the last &nbsp; &nbsp; train and had to walk!" &n...
The Fleet. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 27 September 1913
The Fleet. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; State and Federal authorities are busy making preparations for the visit of the Australian fleet unit, which, reinforced by the new battle- ship Australia, is expected to enter the harbor on Saturday, the 4th of next month. It is agreed that the oc- &nbsp; casion is at least as worthy of a great &nbsp; demonstration as was the visit of the American fleet. The citizens are be- ginning to take a hand in the prepara- tions on their own account, and it is confidently expected that the display will be worthy of the State.
The Barrack-street Savings Bank. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 27 September 1913
The Barrack-street Savings Bank. The proposal of the Government to take over the Barrack-street Savings Bank, which is administered by trus- tees appointed by itself, acquires spe- cial interest at the present moment from the scarcity of money and the consequent tightness or the market. The institution pays one half per cent, higher interest than the State govern- ment institution, and thus attracts money which the Treasury thinks &nbsp; should come into its own coffers. Moreover, it has about three millions &nbsp; &nbsp; earning interest at fixed deposit with the cheque-paying banks. This would be a nice little nest-egg for a hard- pressed Treasurer. The fact that its withdrawal would not be relished by the banks which are putting it to use would, in itself, be rather an induce- ment to a "Labor" Ministry to adopt that course. But then, it would also &nbsp; &nbsp; diminish their power of according ac- commodation to their borrowing cus- tomer...
