Hair, H. R. Davies, Tom Bower, J. W. Fimister, C. Cut bush McLeod, Kennedy, Mason, Hawkins, Miller and Curran. Mr H. R. Davis was voted to the chair. The Chairman explained the object of the meeting.

He recognised many old faces at the present meeting. He would be glad to hear suggestions as to the best course to pursue in making the representation of the pioneers a success. Mr Tom Bower was appointed secretary to the meeting. Mr Wake proposed that the word "Pioneers " should be defined-as those who were on Hainans field in 1893. M...
Visit of Mr Moran. M.L.A., to Bulong. BULONG, May 3. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 7 May 1896
Visit of Mr Moran. M.L.A., to Bulong. LFROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [BY TELEGRAPH.] BULONG, May 3. The town was yesterday thrown quite into a state of excitement by a wire received by the Chairman of the Progress Committee, Captain Truscott, announcing that the mem ber for Yilgarn was going to pay us his long promised visit. Although the time was short immediate steps were taken to receive Mr Moran in the manner he deserves, not only because of his position as our member, but because of the esteem in which he is held as a man. Captain Truscott and Messrs Greenwell and Young at once got Messrs Corry, the mail contractors, to harness up their coach and proceeded along the road, where they met and practi cally took forcible possession of Mr Moran mounting him on the box of the coach and bringing him back to the township in triumph. Mr Greenwell most scientifically drove Mr Moran's conveyance safely back after the coach. It goes without saying that the dust on the road was bad, and the ...
The Matabele Race. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 7 May 1896
The Matabele Race. The origin and history of the Matabele are of considerable interest. In 1828, after the death of Chaka, the famous Zulu king, his brother and successor, Dingan, had not the same control over he terrible military instrument created by his predecessor. The chief of one of the Zulu armies, Moselekatse, whom Chaka had ordered to be put to death, revolted and led his troops into what is now the Transvaal and Bechuanaland. Their power was irresistible, 50 of them being more than a match for 500 Bechuanas. They devastated the country far and wide, all the natives being exterminated except the best looking of the girls, whom they took as wives, and some of the young men, who were spared and received into their own ranks. In the course of a few years Moselekatse had built up a vast dominion in the central part of South Africa from which his armies went forth to conquer and exter minate or enslave all the surrounding tribes. Moshesh, the Basuto chief, in his impregnable mou...
Our Auriferous Cement. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 7 May 1896
Our Auriferous Cement. An interesting fact relating to the so-called West Australian auriferous cement is pointed out by Mr Pittman, the New South Wales Government Geologist. Some specimens re c ntly submitted to Mr Pittman from the claims which were involved in the dispute with the alluvial miners, were declared by him after microscopic examination, to be exceedingly like the upper cretaceous (desert) sandstone of Queensland. The gold contained was seen to be distinctly rugged and crystalline, thus disposing of the sugges tion that the cement should be classed as alluvuiniunm, and deposited in fine particles between the sand grains possibly by percolating thermal solutions. There are two distinct varieties of the desert sandstone. Both are of the same age, but they differ in their physical features. The first is a friable, porous variety, styled by Mr A. R. Jack as a "bibulous" rock, and is recognised both in Queensland and New South Wales as con stituting a formation favorable to ...
Smithfield. April 29. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 7 May 1896
Smithficld. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) April 29. The property known as the Wheel of Fortune was the first lease applied for for quartz on Smithfield, and a considerable amount of work has been done on it. There are several gold beating reefs on the property but the one best known is that on which an underlay shaft has been sunk to a depth of 90ft, aid the quartz taken out to that depth. It maintains its solidity for the whole dis tance, and is gold bearing throughout. Both walls are .of slate and strongly im pregnated with iron in, the,clos' proximity of the reef. The underlay is about one in two and the width of the stone about two feet. The heap at grass is estimated to yield two ounces to the ton or over. A vertical shaft has been sunk to meet the underlay and carried down ten feet below it, and the reef taken out. It still maintains its good quality. Water is met with at 80ft, so that there need be no trouble on that score. The Wheel of Fortune group embraces 9 sections or le...

Wholesale Granting of Exemptions. [BY TELEGRAPH.] BULONG, May 3. A mass meeting of miners was held here to-day to consider the exemption clauses and to express indignation at the wholesale grants of exemption now teing given.

Bardoc Notes. [FROMI OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] BARDOc. May 2. The Bardoc Proprietary is a 24 acre block joining the Queenslander on the south, and has been continuously worked for the past six mcnths. In addition to a lot of costeen ing work a shaft has been put down 40ft, at which depth the reef was cut. the width being 2ft lin with fair gold showing.

Golden West Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 7 May 1896
Golden West Australia. SWhile the news from Western Australia continues favorable, both as regards new discoveries and that of the older mines, more especially of the Great . Boulder, the market has not responded to those advices, as the public very properly are waiting for the crushings of some of the most important of the new mines, which may shortly be expec-. ted. Amongst these the Hannan's Brown dll crushing, more especially, will be of the. greatest interest. According to a cablegram received by the ?Eancial n.ws,. the dry crushiing .plant employed on this mine is proved to be capable of extracting from 85 to 90) per cent of the gold, and it was expected that crushing would commence on Monday. The price of Hannan's Brown Hill shares is already very high, viz, £6 10s, but a really favorable result by this dry-crushing process would have a most ,important bearing upon gold mining generally in West Australia, and developments should therefore be care fully watched. The news that ...
DISORDERLY HOUSES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 7 May 1896
DISORDERLY :IOUSES. TO THE EDITOR. Sin-I was very pleased to see by your items of news in this morning's paper that only one case of drunkenness came before the court on Saturday morning, and that the police had an easy time on Saturday night, but.should our constables prowl out on the Boulder-road from 10 to 12 p.m. on Satur day nights they would have some good cases oif Monday morning. The language used is filthy, and it is disgraceful that any respec table man.or woman should have to listen to it. I trust more constables will soon be available, or private citizens sworn in, so as to protect private people and their property, because we are expecting ever~ now and then to hear.and see our doo6rsiand windows broken in.-I am, &c., ONE or T-iHE=fI ISTURBED.

CROESUS SOUTH UNITED. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 7 May 1896
CROESUIS SOUTH UNITED. The Brown Hill lode, which was struck some time ago at. a delcth of 140ft in the Croesus South United Mine., is opening up well. There was for a time some little doubt as to whether the lodes were the same, but compeltnt .authorities pronounce the recent discovery to be a continuation of the reef which so many managers are now trying to trace into their properties. It came into the shaft fron the. west side, and this in.the first pliace gave rise to the doubt as to the identity of the 'formation; as it had been looked for on the east side of the main shaft. It has been found impossible to sink any deeper owing . to the influx of water being too great to be coped with without machinery, and until the Winding plant arrives the reef will be'prospected at the 140ft level. It is apparently very wide and carries good gold, the stone closely resembling that being raised from the Brown -HiUL...The position of the lode makes it appear as though the Block 45 would get a...
Mining News. BOULDER PERSEVERANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 7 May 1896
Mining News. (BY OUR MINING REPORTER.) BOULDER PFRSEVERANCE. - This mine, which" Is situated immediately north of Lake View and on thz same line of lode, is opening up splendidly. The company hold a block of 24 acres, which gives them a quarter of a mile on the line of lode. Already four shafts have been sunk on the Lake View lode,. proving it from the south to the north end of the mine, and all through the block the ore is worth about the same as in the Viewi, or a little better than two ounces per ton. The deepest shaft on the mine is down" 120ft, and is situated at the south end of the property. This was started on the west side of the lode, and after going through 37ft of decomposed country. rock hard diorite came in and continued for 40ft. At a little over 70ft. the lode was crt, and is going down so licarly vertically thr t the whole of the bottom of the pit has down to the present depth been in lode formnat'on of good grade. ,There is as yet no sign of the footwall, and until...
THE IVANHOE. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 7 May 1896
THE IVANHOE. The Ivanhoe is opening up so splendidly that the directors have decided to erect 15 additional heads of stamps, making the mill 20 heads. This is fully warranted, especially as the mine has a splendid supply of water. It will be remembered that the lode was struck at the 200ft level about six months ago, and ever since the five-head battery has been run on mine water without in any way altering the level of the water, which still stands 28ft above the bottom of the work ings. It is not intended to interfere with the existing battery for the present, but the old mill and oil engine will be allowed to stand,'and the new battery of 15 heads of full-weight stamps will be erected a little south of the old plant, and will be run en tirely separate, the motive power being supplied from a 20-power oil engine. The whole of the plant is now on the road from Melbourne, and its eection will in no way interfere with the working of the old plant, which will subsequently be used as a ...
REEFERS EUREKA EXTENDED. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 7 May 1896
REEFERS EUREKA EXTENDED. This property comprises 12 acres, and.is situated on the West boundaryof the Reefers Eureka, the said boundary being aboutj300 feet distant from the main shaft of the latter mine, the lode formation of which is dipping direct into the Reefers Eureka Extended. At the 80ft level, a leader of quartz and ironstone is met with, which widens from 18 to 24 inches in the bottom of the drive. Some of the specimens from this leader are carrying rich gold. There is also on the dump a first class sample of this leader, 1 ut owing to the unsettled nature of the country, the shaft has been continuale to 120 feet, where another crosscut is being put in with a view to agwn cutting the leader, which at a depth it is anticipated will prove to be a true fissure lode. The formation in this mine is similar to that of the Reefers Eureka, and it will be very disappointing if this mine does not prove to be one of the genuine and stay ing kind.
The Australian Eleven. THE VOYAGE TO COLOMBO. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 7 May 1896
The Australian eAleven. THE VOYAGE TO COLOMBO. Mrs John Hill, of Adelaide, has received from her son Clem. a letter containing several interesting items about the voyage of the Cuzco to Colombo. They had a splendlid voyage, and when he wrote,on March 29, Hill, like the other members of the team, was enjoying excellent health. The articles of agreement were signed by the members of the Eleven soon after the vessel left Albhuy, "- some not having been well enough" -to sign before. It is cheering to hear that the cricketers were getting along splendidly together, and that they were all "ns keen as rats to do well." Giffen's birthday coming on March 27 and Hill's on the next day, a special dinner was given by the ship to cele brate the events. The health of the two South Australians was drunk with enthusiasm, the commander of the steamer proposing the toast, and Mr H. M. Gooch supporting it. Afterwards a concert was held, at which I redale, Johns, and Donnan were prominent performers. A...
