The Opposition Policy. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 7 May 1896

The Opposition Policy. AT Mount Magnet last week Mr Illing-. worth enunciated what may be regarded as the Opposition programme. After a strong denu!iciation of the Government for its hesitating policy towards the goldfields Mr Illingworth stated the re forms that in his opinion should be` effected. Much is included by him that should attract the sympathies of large numbers on the goldfields, especially those who have come from the other colonies and are imbued with ideas favorable to progressive legislation. The judgn ent of these people should, in fairness to both parties in Parliament, be suspended until -Sir John Forrest's views are known on the questions dealt with in Mr Illingworth's programme. The first place is given by Mr Illingworth to the representation and re-distribution of seats on a population basis. No fair thinking person can conscientiously deny that a reform in this direction is abso.: lutely necessary so as to abolish the absurd anomaly existing at present, by whi...

The Rival Railway Routes. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 7 May 1896

The Rival Railway Routes. GREAT energy has been displayed by the committee formed in Coolgardie for the purpose of opposing the construc tion of the proposed Kalgoorlie to Menzies railway. They know that their case is very weak, so, lawyer-like, they have freely indulged in abuse of the other side. A number of very uncom plimentary things have been said regard ing the people of Kalgoorlie, and also about this journal, and the merits have been grossly misrepresented of the three rival routes to Meuzies, viz., from Southern Cross, from Coolgardie, and from Kalgoorlie. The only argument that has been advanced in favor of the Coolgardie-Menzies route is that the journey to Perth from Meuzies by this route would be shorter than via Kalgoor:ie. This would be the case if the railway were made direct from Cool gardie to Menzies as the crow flies, but no one favors the adoption of this course, an: the CGolgardie .committee propose that the line should wind about in various directions to serv...

Correspondence. [The Editor does not hold hiinself respon sible for the opinions expressed by cor respondents.] JAPANESE AND SLY GROG SELLING. TO THE EDITOR, SIn-I see you have been giving the •Japanese a turn lately in your valuable paper, and I quite agree with you ; but, sir,: think if this matter had been quietly laid before outr energetic police force they would have soon put a stop to it. Let me here call jyour attention to what many of' the resi ?dents know to be almost as bad as the -Japanese, that is the sly grog shanties. I trust that the police will -give them another turn such as they gave them only a short time ago. They set~n now, howAver, to -carry on their little game nearly as bad as before. The language of somen of the fre -quenters of these sly grog shops is something terrible to hear at night, or rather early next -morning, when they are turned out. They are a hundred per cent worse -than any licensed hotel in town. By publishing this _you will confer a great ble...

The Storyteller. A WASTED LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 7 May 1896

The Storyteller. A WASTED LIFE. I first niet the deacon under rather odd circumstances. A persistent touch of rheu matism under my left shoulder, which defied linaments and plasters, sent me to the Hot Springs, seven miles north of Boonopolis, Southern California. To reach the Hot Springs, the traveller crosses five miles of desert country, where the cactus flourishes like the green bay tree, and the coyote shrills at night his peculiar lay. Then up climbs "the grade," a rise of 1000 feet in two miles. This part of the way is over a mouutain road which skirt precipices and winds in and out among canons in a way that makes timid people dizzy. One beautiful winter afternoon Deacon Hardwicke started for the hotel. That morn ing he had procured at Boonopolis a livery team and a driver, and had been taken to different points about the valley, looking at lands which were offered for sale. Having completed his inspection, he was driven to the foot of the grade, and therŽ he dismissed the t...

FUNERAL OF SIR HENRY PARKES. SYDNEY, April 29. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 7 May 1896

FUNERAL OF SIR HENRY PARKES. (BY TELEGRAPH.) SYDNEY, April 29. The funeral of Sir Henry Parkes to-day was devoid of all State cere- mony, but nothing could prevent it being made the occasion of a great demonstration of grief. Hundreds of aged men, whose lives had been bound up with the early days of the colony, and who were consequently associated closely with Sir Henry Parkes, fol- lowed the body to the grave, and in very many cases their strong grief was shown by unrestrained weeping. The old men present at the funeral was in- deed its most touching feature. Practically all the high officials of the colony were represented, and their carriages, with those of the deceased gentleman's many friends, made an enormous cortege. Fully 5000 spectators lined the way from Annan- dale to the railway station, whence the corpse was taken by train to Falcon- bridge. The little cemetery of this mountain hamlet contains the dust of many members of the Parkes family, including the first Lady Parke...

Kanowna Police Court. (Before Mr Warden Fielding and Mr N. W. Harper, J.P.) FRIDAY, MAY 1, 1896. Benjamin Brand was charged with being a disorderly person, and having no lawful or visible means of support. Constable Purkis gave evidence as to ac cused being a suspected thief, also that he kept the company of suspected thieves. Constable Smith substantiated the previous witness' statements and stated further that on the evening of 30th ult, he saw accused and two other suspected thieves in company with a "drunk." He accosted the acused, and asked him what he was doing for a living. Knew Brand for about 18 months and never knew him to work, excepting for for a few days; certainly not sufficient to keep him. Accused was suspected to be the the leader of a gang of suspected thieves. In answer to accused : Knew that he held a cement claim, and had seen him out at the Gorden rush. Prisoner made a statement to the effect that he was one of the first on the "cement," and held a claim up to ...

Kanowna Warden's Court. FRIDAY, MAY I. (Before the Warden, Mr Percy Fielding.) Coombe v. Wray.-This case was struck out. Considine v. Connolly.--Case struck out. Thomas v. Huntington. - Thomas was sueing Huntington for £28 13s, being a third of the working expenses on lease 2001E, situated at Balagundi. Mr Thomas conducted his own case, and Mr Jodrell, of Hare and Jodrell, acted on behalf of the defendant. It appears that Thomas, Huntington, and a miner named Reid formed a syndicate to work the lease. Thomas and 'Reid were to work the ground, and Huntington was to keep them in "tucker." Reid threw up the job on account of Thomas not fulfilling his part of the agreement, and Huntington was not prepared to go on with Reid out of it. -Judgment was given for plaintiff for the sum of £4 10s, costs not allowed. Holmes v. Earl.-This was an objection to a survey. Mr Jodrell, acting on behalf of Earl, withdrew his objections, and asked that costs should not be allowed. Mr Rounsevell, acting ...

WATER FOR THE GOLDFIELDS, TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 7 May 1896

WATER FOE. THE GOLDFIELDS, TO THE EDITOR. SIn,-Kindly impress upon the Govern ment the absolute necessity there is for a plentiful supply of water to all our goldfields for the health of the inhabitants first, and for the development of the mining industry next. The Almighty in His beneficence sends us enough water for our wants, but the Government do not take advantage of it by conserving it properly. Why is there no efflcientcontrolleror board appointed who will look after every town where there is a popu lation large enough to warrant the construc tion of water works to thrust the locality forward? One man cannot carry on every thing. I know the Government has appointed an engineer for water supply to the gold fields, but we want someone else to look after our interests, and point out to the engineer where he may display the abilities to the best advantage. One man cannot carryon the administrative and professional work com binelt-he must fail in the one case or the other. Surely...
