The West Australian Loan. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 14 May 1896
The West Australian Loan. THE Success that attended the floating of the -balance of the 1894 loan on the London market was no more than was generally expected, considering how high the credit of West Australia stands at present. No one can doubt the bright future in store for the colony with its rapidly increasing population and vast undeveloped resources with which, not alone its reefs and formations, but also its pastoral, agricultural, and forest lands abound. It would certainly be astonishing if the colony were not a favorite field for investment, and that the latest financial venture should have met with other than a satisfactory recep tion. But while allcwing for all the circum stances in its favor, it must be admitted that credit is due to the Premier for his cautiousness in approaching the market. The troubles in the Transvaal, and the big drop that took place some months ago in the value of American securities have had a lowering effect on foreign investments in the estimat...
The Question of Exemptions. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 14 May 1896
The Question of Exemp tions. THERE is perhaps nothing in the ad ministration of the goldfields more difficult to deal with than the qu..stion of exemptions. No one can reasonably deny that in many cases the granting of exemptions is desirable. and to strictly enfore the labor conditions in every instance would be unjust and be a great hardship to the poorer class of lease holders. Cases are common on the field of owners who have struggled man fully perhaps for years under adverse circumstance, but who, after spending a considerable amount of time and money, find that through want of funds or some other reason they are temporarily unable to comply with the labor conditions. A pmchaser at a reasonable price is not always readily obtainable, and it would be very severe on such a man to be compelled, possibly just as he was on the eve of success, to sacrifice all the time, capital, and labor he had expended. Exemptions are supposed to 'provide against such oppressions, but unfortun atel...

Gold Returns. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 14 May 1896
Gold Returns. THErF.E is an improvement in th.' gold output for April as compared with the output for the previous month. During April, 16.772ozs were exported, while during March the amount was 11,084ozs, thus showing an increase of 5,688ozs. There is, however, a decrease of 2,355ozs compared with the returns for April of last year. To a person unacquainted with the facts the reduction of the gold output for this year, as compared with last year, might be considered an un favorable sign as regards the auriferous wealth of West Australia. but the decrease was not more than might have been expected, and may be easily ex plained by the factof the alluvial diggings being to a great extent worked out. The mining at present carried on is mainly development work, and managers are more concerned in procuring and erecting the necessary machinery, sink ing for water, and making re quired shafts and drives than in actually winning the gol: from their mines. It has been conclusively proved tha...
TELEGRAPHIC. WEST AUSTRALIA. PERTH, May 12. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 14 May 1896
TELE( RAPHI C. WEST AUSTRALIA. PERTH,MJ.12..... Mr Fowler's report on the Dandalap goldfield las beern publishe:d. Et is- on sidered to be most inconclusive, and gives unnecessary details of the visit to the spot. There are no comments upon the reQalts, and much dissatisfaction is expressed, the general opinion being that the report is a poor one. Hitherto no police have been stationed in the Niagara district, which was con trolled from Menzies. The Commis sioner of Police decided recently to establish a police station there, and three constables with camels and full equnip ment left Coolgardie for Niagara for that purpose on Sunday. The station will be under the charge of First-Class Constable Stone. An additional constable will be also permanently stationed at Kanowna.
CYCLING INCIDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 14 May 1896
CYCLING INCIDENTS. From America comes the information that on the 3rd March at Coronado Beach, Cali fornia, W. W. Hamilton, paced by a quad and a quint. cut the world's record for one mile, flying .tart, to 1mini S 15th sec. A venturesome French cyclist lately dis tinguished himself by entering acage of lions at a circus, and whilst the trainci kept them engaged the wheelman rode round the animals, none of which made any attempt to attack him. The London Daily Te~lgraph relates a cycling incident said to have taken place in Paris. A policeman was driving furiously along a boulevard in the effort to capture a mad dog before the animal should bite anyone. A cyclist, seeing the gendarme was being distanced, borrowed his sabre, mounted a bicycle, and dashed after the animal, which he adroitlyran through the body in truelaneer fashion. The cyclist's action was warmly cheered by the crowd that gathered-as soon as it was seen that the dog was incapable of mischief. A queer race was run in ...
