A charge was laid against Hugh Jones, licensee of the Grand Hotel, that he did not give admittance to the police when called upon to do so at about 1 a.m. on Friday, 26th inst. Mr. E. S. Williams (Keenan and Randall), who appeared for the defence, pleaded not guilty.

Hendor Clarke (town watchman) corroborated the previous witness' evidence, and in answer to Mr, Williams, said that as it was a very quiet night a little noise eould travel a fair distance.

Several young men were fined amounts ranging from 5s to 7s 6d, with costs, for being found on ?un- licensed premises (Lion and Grand Jiotels), and were advised not to repeat the offence;
The Quarantine Proclamation. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 4 October 1913
The Quarantine Proclamation. TI19 matter of leceping Sydney in quarantine is .taking a new turn. The danger of the alleged 'smallpox' spreading is 'just as great — or jusv as negligcable — as over it Avas. There have been over 700 cases without a single fatality, so that a little scep ticism yeems' eminently in order. But, withou.t laboring any debateable points, lie idea that the disease, whatever it ia, may persist for many months, or even years, is beginning to penetrate the somewhat obtuse- minds of i\ie officials responsible foru medical pre cautions. Also, it is beginning to be understood that ic is something 'over the limit' to keep the chief city of the Commonwealth in a state of per petual quarantine Ion aoicouriu of a trumpery 'rash,' which' doesn't kill anybody, but which resolutely refuses to be stamped out. Consequently, the shrieks of alarm are giving place to pn eA-ident desire. to 'dicken.' 'Pass ;an Act to aiake vaccination compulsory jin New So-jth Wales, and we wi...
Is the Vaccination Rash Contagious? [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 4 October 1913
Is the Vaccijaation Rash. Contagious? ? Fiom the medical point of vieA\r, a quesJion of the., utmost importance is beinj raised. All the medical authori ties are agreed that the vaccine mat ter ':?} human smallpox, i.iu«itied by transmission through th? bovine ani mal. It is assumed that, by this tians mission, it is rendered non-contagious, so that vaccination is, in reality, ihe old nioeulation (which is now prohibi ted by law) minus the danger of con veying contagion too'thers. *-ut dur ing th-e orgy, of vaccination Avliieh lias been proceeding for the last fevv months in Sydney, serious doubts havfc been east on the soundness of this assumption. Very numerous case& liaye occurred in which the only ub A-aecinated member of a family lias contracted the rash whk-h is called 'smallpox.' The 'Vaccinating officials claim all these eases as testimony of the efficacy 'of- the operation. But there irf another exxjlanaiion, wlii/n is regarded by many observers as much more probabl...

Consolation. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 4 October 1913
Consolation. ? Ml*. Griffith, the Minister for, Works, who has been having a very rough time lately, had a gleam of consolation when visiting the porrigo. The rail - way which is to connect this fertile : district witn the coast is! out1- of those yvnicn arp. to be constructed' under ihe ' . Norton-Grifllths agreement. In Parlia - .. ment, it is difficult to say whether the agreement is more bitterly denounced ' by thoroughgoing Labor men, or by the Liberals. But. there. Avas no harsh criticism of it at the Dorrigo. Ths wisdom of the expedient was recog nised, the foresight and resource of tho Minister were -warmly nrar?3-l, and' as if to fill his crip of joy to the brim, Mr. Wade, against whom he js threatening to fake proceedings for slanderr was burnt in efiigy by the en thusiastic Dorrigonians. If Earliancnt can only be induced to -endorse tl-cir ? verdict, everything , will be lovely— for Mr. Griffith— but; extremely 'uinjleasant for Mr. Wade. The general opinion, however, is t...
Sydney Letter Commonwealth Banking [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 4 October 1913
Sydney Letter ', Commonwealth, BartKing. ,It deemed rather foolish on the part of !?. the people of Australia, or of the Ministers kyho were acting on their behalf, to eoinpete agamsc one another for their own . savings. Yet that waa virtually the effect 01 tne . establish ment of the CommonwealtX Savings Bank. The States were aomg all that could be reasonably expected in the way of Savings Bank business. In deed, for obvious reasons, tney were, 'and are still, pushing it with pronoun ced energy. The establishment of the Commonwealth, institution has deprived them of nearly three millions of the people's savings, whicn otherwise would probably . have found its way into, the State Banks. The present Government, however, seems to be * aiive to this anomaly, and has ex pressed its vdllingness to consider any proposals by which the Commonwealth institution and those of the- several States can work in co-operation, in stead of in opposition. It is not very easy 'to see how ip can be donS...
Griffith Versus Wade. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 4 October 1913
Griffith Versus Wade. No very denitefi steps have yoi been taken in the action which the 'Minister jfor Works has said that he will insti tute against the Opposition Leader, wit-h the vio,v of .compelling him to prove his charges. Mr. Wado hail said - - tnat, it sivih action were- taken, . lie would waive Parliamentary pm'ileges - ' On behalf of Mr. Griffith, he has been -' asked if lie would admit having ut tered certain statements which he* was . i-eported_to haver made on February . 12th, last year. To this he replied ., that he would neither admit or dc-ny. It was for the plaintiff to prove his case. In many of the Acts of Parlia ment passed under the auspices of Mr - Wade, when Premier, this wholesome principle has not been so rigidly re spected. But this by the way. * The difficulty the Minister for Works is in, is that, although Mr. Wade may ?waive his Parliamentary privilege, the - fact will still remain that these state ments were made in Parliament, and its is by no means,...

'SINS OE1 A CITY.'' ,. On Wednesday next at the Town Hali the above drama -will be pro duced by Mr. J. Fyvie Dench and his popular and first-class company of artists, splendid reports have been given the company for their per f ormances in Kalgoorlie and Boulder, and the crowded houses that have nightly witnessed this sensational drama have been amply rewarded. To elaborate on the whole of the company and the play itself would take up a great space, therefore at present we can assure the public of Coolgardie that they will be rewarded with acting and a play quite up to first 'class standard. Miss Gwladys Kichards is also in the caste, and that in itself is an assurance of some thing of the best in the dramatic line. Popular prices of 3sr 2s, and Is will be charged, which are very reasonable for such a talented com .pany/ '?_-?'
