General Items. April 29. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 7 May 1896
General Items. April 29. Kanowna town blocks are steadily in creasing in value. In fact, there has been a small boom in land, and a number of resi dential areas have been pegged out and ap plied for. These are on the side of the town, where it is expected that the railway will enter Kanowna. In reference to town blocks, Messrs Baldwin and Tonniges report having sold six blocks of land at various prices, the highest price being a few pounds short of £100. The proprietors of the Golden Coin and White Feather Proprietary companies have had another instalment of the purchase money. This is to be applied to the working expenses. In the White Feather Proprietary, at the 60 feet level, splendid gold has been struck in the reefs. The reef averages 20in in width. The gold is both coarse and fine, and is freely dis. tributed throughout the stone. This is one of the most promising prospecting shows in the district. The Perseverance is a 24-acre lease that is situated about 10 miles north of Ka...
(Before The Warden Mr Percy Fielding.) KANOWNA, May 1. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 7 May 1896
(Before The Warden Mr Percy Fielding.) KANOWNA, May 1. James Sullivan was charged with using obscene language to Mr Etteridge, one of the officials at the Post Office. It appears that Sullivan was under the impression that he had given Etteridge an order to forward his letters to Kalgoorlie, and when he found that his instructions were not carried out he came along to see the reason why. The Warden informed him that he had no right to insult an official If he had any complaint to make he should have reported the matter to his superior officer. Sullivan was fined £2 and costs or 7 days. The fine was paid. Richard McGrath was charged with deposit ing offensive matter within the prescribed dis tance of the town boundaries. His employer, Mr James Johnston, of the Royal Exehange Hotel, appeared on behalf of McGrath, and stated that the rubbish was deposited under the impression that it could be dropped any where out of the town boundaries. As soon as the offence was pointed out the rubbi...

The Western Argus. PUBLISHED EVERY THURSDAY. THURSDAY, MAY 7, 1896. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 7 May 1896
PUBLISHED EVERY THURSDAY. THURSDAY, MAY 7, 1896. LAST month the Minister controlling the Post and Telegraph Department asked the Victorian postal authorities to re commend someone competent to report upon and suggest improvements in re gard to the manner of conducting the postal and telegraphic business of this colony. In response to the request, the Victorian authorities recommended Mr G. S. Caldwell, a retired official of the Melbourne Post and Telegraph office. This gentleman, who has had 30 years' experience of the business, accordingly came to West Australia and spent several weeks lately investigating affairs in connection with the management of the department. The result of his in quiries has been a fairly comprehensive report, which was recently published in the press. The references to the diffi culties under which postal officials are at present required to labor contain little that has not been long recognised by the mass of the people of this colony, but the recommendati...
KANOWNA. BATTLE BETWEEN ABORIGINALS. KANOWNA, April 29. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 7 May 1896
KANO W NA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) BATTLE BETWEEN ABORIGINAiLS. (BY TELEGRAPR.) KANowNA, April 29. During the week there has been a meeting here of various tribes of blacks from the surrounding country, there being quite 300 of all ages and both sexes camped about a mile from the town. They include visitors from Pindinnie and the 90-Mile, as well as a contingent from Kurnalp'. Th y have en gaged in frequent corrobbories as well as fights, and at daylight this morning a Pen denni native named Jimmy drove a spear into the heart of a Kurnalpi black named Billy, death resulting almost immediately. The black Jimmy immediately left for fresh scenes and pastures new. He is an old offender, and about 13 months ago was on the chain here for threatening to spear a digger at the cement workings. He then escaped by sawing through the chain to which he was handcuffed. A coroner's inquest on the body of the deceased was held before Mr N. W. Harper, J.P., and a jury of three. The jury went o...
Successful Prospectors at The 6-Mile. 6-Mile, May 5. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 7 May 1896
Successful Prospectors at The 6-Mile. (PROM OUR CORRESPONDENT) 6-Mile, May 15. . An enjoyable evening was spent at the 6 Mile on Friday evening, when Messrs Howard and Leggat entertained a few of their friends at their camp to celebrate the settling-up of their sale of the S. Bendigo lease. The health of " The hosts" was proposed by Mr Paton, who, in a neat speech, alluded to the patience and perseverance with which those gentlemen had stuck to the district when things did not look as bright for them as they have since turned out, and said they deserved the reward of their confidence in the district. Mr Collins and a number. of their old friends of the "dry-blowing" days also spoke to the toast, and were all pleased to congratulate Messrs Howard and Leggat on their good fortune, as in good or bad times, they were always ready to do a good turn in any way, and always had faith in the future of the district. In reply, .MrBe . wa?wd.and ,Leggat were very happy to see so many of their o...

Kurnalpi. May 2. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 7 May 1896
Kurnalpi. [FROM OUR -OWN £ORRESPON~ ENT.] May 2. Brophy's Consols continues to open out well. Captain Rode has bagged up and despatched a large quantity of ore for exhibition in Adelaide. Messrs W. R. Wilson, Horn, and Jamieson paid the field a visit last week, principally for the purpose of inspecting the Kurnalpi Gold Exploration Company's leases. Very vigorous development work is being carried on by this company, which has a holding v?f something like two hundred acres embracing most of the old alluvial workings. Perhaps the very richest patch of alluvial ground on this field was what is known as Social Flat, and this ground is now being actively prospected by Messrs Maxwell and party on the west side, and Mr Joshua on the east. A system of cross-cutting has been commenced and will probably be carried on by a development syndicate, which is, I believe contemplated. A great deal of ground has recently been taken up in the neighbourhood of the Nil Desperandum, Lady Dorris, and Ital...
THE TRANSVAAL TROUBLES. LONDON, May 3. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 7 May 1896
THE TRANSVAAL • TROUBLES. LoNDoN, May 8. Lord Loch, who was accused on Friday last by the Paris Temps that he had discussed with the Uitlanders of Johannesburg the practicability of the invasion of the Transvaal, and of having offered to assist such an enterprise, has made an important statement in the House of Lords. He informed the House that in administering the Government of Cape Colony, and hold ing the Commissionership he was urgently requested to visit Johannes burg by the Uitlanders, who pleaded that their grievances against President Kruger were unbearable. He was dis suaded from doing so, and fearing an outbreak, he consented to receive a deputation at Pretoria. The feeling against the Transvaal Government then was very strong, but he advised a con stitutional agitation, and showed the utter futility of attempting a rising with only a thousand rifles- at their com mand. He in no way encouraged the movement, much less. did he offer to assist them in resistance. Any statemen...

Mr Robertson, the owner of the trotting horse Osterley. has decided not totake the £20 deposited by Martin, the cyclist, in con nection with the match between Osterley and Martin, which fell through owing to the League of Wheelmen refusing to sanction the match. A match was arranged between Osterley and A. W. Harris in mile heats, best two in three, for £20, and the match took place on the Richmond course to-day. The first heat was won 'by Osterley by 100 yards. Harris complained of the unevenness of the track, and decided not to compete in the other heats, and Osterley was declared the winner. W.
