De Rose, who is leav ing the district. It was the first meeting held in the Club, and the big room was filled with mine managers and the leading men of the town and field.

It was his custom to go fora walk in the early mornings, and when on Wednesday at about 7 o'clocke he informed a friend that he inteiided to take a walk to the "old mine" no special notice was taken of his movements. As Mr Moore had not returned when business began, and he had the keys of the safe with him, Mr Miller felt somewhat uneasy, and he reported the matter to the police.

Mining News. LAKE VIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 14 May 1896

Mining News. (By OUR MININGl REPORTER.) LAKE VIEW. A splendid development has, taken place in the Lake View mine. A new shaft has been started at a point about half way be tweeni the south boundary and W.G.'s shaft, and although only a few feet below the surface very rich gold has been struck. The pit is being carried down in the lode which at the surface is like, an inverted wedge or a ridge, and is rapidly widening as it is sunk upon. It is exactly like the reef was when opened up a few feet in sinking W.A.'s shaft and the gold all through in coarse and fine psrticles is very evenly distributed. The new shaft is about 523ft south of W.G's shaft, or half way between that point and the boundary of the Lake View South mine. It isabout 400ftsouth of the mostsouthern work ing in the inine, and demonstrates that the rich 'ore extends mach further south than was expected. From" present 'appearnces it looks as if the golden shoot runs right into the Lake View South, and should remove all ...

There is no police protection in town,the which is periodically given over to the mob, whose proceedings are paralleled only in the history of the Western States of America. A few nights ago a scoundlel attempted to enter the bedroom of the barmaid of the hotel. A bystander interfering, the intruder com menced to hurl bottles. The:barmaid, terri fled, rushed from the rooin, and when doing so a bottle was hurled with terrific force. It struck the door, and was shattered into a thousand fragments one entering her eye. She was treated by a Menzies doctor, who asserts that the eye will be lost. A crowd seized the ruffian and put a rope round his neck. They then attempted to strangle him, and the only thing that saved him from being lynched was the fact that there was no place from which to suspend the rope.

Prisoners in a Lazaretto. SYDNEY, May 6. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 14 May 1896

Prisoners in a Lazaretto. (BY TELEGRAPH.) SYDNEY, May 8. A correspondent, who is a medical man, writes to one daily stating there are at present two men at the Little liay Lazaret' o whom Dr Taylor, medical superintendent, considers to be in a condition which should exempt them from this deprivation of their liberty, as in his opinion they are not affected with leprosy, although they were certified to be so diseased when sent into confinement. It is further stated that representations to this effect have frequently been made by Dr Taylor to the Minister in whose department this institution is, as well as to'the Board of Health, but without effect so far as securing the release cf the men was concerned. From enquiries made it seems certain that at least one man is detained in the lazaretto, though there is not the remotest possibility of his ever having been a leper. The other, it is stated, is suffering from nerve leprosy. which differs from the violent form of the disease and he mi...

The lander, William Cock, heard something behind him, and on looking round saw de ceased's heels disappearing down the shaft. A boy named Hewitson had keen working with him the night before. Deceased had beeni very ill during the night with diarrhoea, and had not been a great while out of Wallaroo Hospital He recently came from Broken Hill, and went to the hospital on account of lead-poisoning. It is supposed that he was very weak, and that he staggered backwards into the shaft. Richard Jennings and others went down the shaft and found part of the body floating on a piece of timber, one arm was missing, the whole of the right leg torn from the body, and the left leg about the knee gone. The body was terribly mutilated, and the head frightfully bruised. Engine-driver Jo...

NORTH BOULDER. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 14 May 1896

NORTH BOULDER. At the 100ft level from the main shaft of this mine both the east and west lodes have been struck. The crosscut east and west entered the lodes almost simultaneously last week, but while the west reef is 10ft wide the eastern formation is only about 6ft thick. Both carry fair gold, but neither is so rich as the shoot of gold which is being followed down from the prospectors shaft. At a depth of 80ft in the winze from the 40ft level the stone is full of gold, and some sp lendid speci. mens have been broken out during the week. It is intended to carry the winez down to the 100ft level. A start is being made to get out the foundations of the battery, and a large portion of the machinery is alreamIy on the ground.

THE IVANHOE. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 14 May 1896

THE IVANlHOE. The 100ft level of the Ivanhoe is still im proving as it is opened up. In carrying the first set of stopes north during the last few days better ore has been struck than has pre viously been seen in the mine. It is not a patch of rich stone, but the whole stope is rich. On the footwall there is a vein of stone about a foot through2 in which seams of fine gold so closely packed as to be almost like solid bands of metal. In the centre of the lode there is a similar series of veins of gold in schistose material, while the whole of the reef is rich. It is still maintaining its width of about tlift, and is as nice a body of ore as any on the field. The battery is still being run on ore from the south central portion of the mine, where the recent rich discovery was made, and until the winding engine is in position and the shaft centred very little will be dine at the north end of the property. In the meantime the two sections of the mine are being connected as quickly as pos...

THE MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 14 May 1896

THE MARKET. The sudden jump in the price of Bank of Englands and Ivauhoes on Monday, taken in conjunction with the later heavy rises in the prices of Great Boulders, Lake Views, and a few other mines, makes it appear that at length the true value of the greatest gold mines in the world is being recognised. It is : o longer possible to doubt the important part our mines are going to play in the world's production of gold, and equally, im possible to foresee the prices i which our stocks will rise. Even thi mining men in our midst are only just beginning to realise the value of the mines of the district, and no one to-day can say how far east and west, or north and south the diabase belt in which the lodes occur will extend. With the exception of a few, our mines are in the early prospecting stage, and despite the bumptious assertion of a few experts, no one can form the least idea of the value of the individually undeveloped properties. An instance of this is given in the Bank of Eng...
