Death of a Well-Known Pressman. COOLGARDIE, May 11. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 14 May 1896
Death of a Well-Known Pressman. (FROM OUR OWN `CORRESPONDENT.) COOLGARDIE, May 11. Mr P. P. J. Rowe, one of the best known journalists in Western Australia is dead. For some time past Mr Rowe has been sufferipg from indisposition, but such a serious turn as set in last night was never anticipated, and it was thought that under the care of Drs. Morrow and Whyte his recovery was certain. At 3 o'clock this morning, however, failure of the heart's action set in, and death took place very suddenly. The Rev. Father Duff was in attendance, and administered the last consolations of the church. The deceased gentleman was a Queenslander by birth, being about 35 years of age. He was of Irish descent, and had long been distinguished for his fervid devotion to the" ouid sod." As an Irish patriot hecouldcount amongst hisfriends all the great leaders of Irish thought, and it was mainly due to Mr Rowe's exertions that Mr Davitt was induced to visitthe goldfields, and the colony generally, on his re...
HANNANS CONSOLS LIMITED. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 14 May 1896
HANNANS CONSOLS LIMITED. The Hannans Consols Limited, as the big stretch of country formerly known as the Caledonian is now called, is being rapidly opened up, and promises to become one of the big mines of the field. The English company which has purchased the property is fortunate in having secured the services of Captain Dunstan, who for so long was under mine manager of the Great Boulder. He is devoting his best energies to. the opening up of the property and has already secured splendid results. This is the most noticeable in the prospecting shaft sunk on the east side of Cassidy's Hill. This shaft has been carried down to a depth of 60ft, and the richest gold ever struck in this part of the field has been met with in the 2ft quartz reef running north and south. This was intersected by a crosscut run out east from the shaft, and looked so promising at the point at which it was met with that it has been driven on for 40ft. For the whole of this distance the stone is rich, and in...
NEW DISCOVERY. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 14 May 1896
NEW DISCOVERY. A good find has been made near the Lime Kilne, six miles west of Kalgoorlie on the old road. In the middle of the lake half a mile from the Lime Kilne a rich reef has been picked up. The lode consists of veins of quarts running through a dyke of porphery, and has been opened for a width of 25ft on the surface. It is of course not known what is the actual width of the formation at a depth, but as a surface show it is astonish ingly good. Assays taken from the outcrop gave returns of Boss 7dwts 7grs from unpicked stone, and 10lozs from picked samples. The gold is found chiefly in the ironstone, with which the quartz is heavily studded, and as a surface show it is well worth prospecting. Mr Harvey, the proprietor of the lime works, is the fortunate discoverer of the formation, which is attracting a good deal of attention.
Bardoc and Broad Arrow Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 14 May 1896
Bardoc and Broad Arro w Notes. [BY A CORRESPONDENT.1 Having just returned from a trip through the above mentioned districts a few notes on my journey may serve to interest your readers. Leaving Kalgoorlie two days after the last heavy rain we came to what is known as the Arrow Lake, and found it really deserved it's title of lake, for there was a sheet of water several miles in 1. ngth and about half a mile wide. Where we wanted to cross an enterprising individual had converted the cooler of a condenser into a punt, and was doing- a flourish ing business in ferrying passengers across, but knowing the country fairly we struck through a sandy track to the west and arrived at the Arrow. not having wet our selves or horses. Next day I drove to Bardoc and found the place much improved, and a general feeling of hopefulness seems to prevail. I did not visit any of the mines here except the Excelsior, owned by Mac donald and party, the former proprietors of the Hill End. There is a 5-head b...
CABLEGRAMS. SOUTH AFRICAN TROUBLES. LONDON, May 5. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 14 May 1896
CABLEGRAMS. SOUTH AFRICAN TROUBLES. Lo'no.w, May 5. The Transvaal Secretary of State, Dr Leyds, complains of the statement made by Sir Hercules Robinson that a small army of 6000 men is massing at Mafe king. He declares that it has caused a feeling of unrest throughout the Re public, and moreover states that the officers in command of some of the troops allege that the destination of the large force is the Transvaal. He cites in support of this case the affidavits of the Boers, whose waggons are engaged for transport purposes in connection with the proposed invasion. Sir J. De Wet, the British agent at Pretoria, confirms the statement, and suggests the appointment of an Anglo Boer Commission to inquire into the matter. Sir 'Hercules Robinson, in reply to the despatch from Mr Joseph Chamber lain peremptorily denies the foundation of the statements made by Dr Leyds and Sir J. De Wet. The proposal regarding the appointment of a commis sion he characterises as preposterous Troops to the...

The Question of Exemp tions. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) KAxowNA, May 8. On Thursday a deputation, the outcomeof3 a monster meeting held at Bulong on Sun day last,. and introduced. by Councillors Barry and Batho, waited upon Warden Fielding to protest against the wholesale granting of exemptions in that district. lessrs Patrick . Hughes, and " Maori." Dawkins, the delegates, explained at length their grievances, and urged the Warden not to grant exemption to companies unless abundant- proof was forthcoming that the applicants were entitled to suspension of the labor conditions. Ora Barry and Batho thought thetdepu tation had :made out a good case, and urged the Warden to allow every latitude to the working miners interested in claims. They argued that a miner oftentimes had to temporarily abandon his claim to work else. where, so as to earn sufficient to carry on the lease in which he was interested, and for this reason he was entitledto a short respite until such time as he was able, t...

The Mayor reported as the result of his visit to Perth a loan of £30C had beengranted to carry the Council on until a rate had been struck and collected. Also that the deputa had asked for a loan of £2,000 for sanitary purposes. This loan was now. being con sidered, and there was no doubt but that the request would be acceded to.

Spanish - American War Cloud. LONDON, May 10. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 14 May 1896
Spanish - American War Cloud. LONDON, May 10. Trouble appears likely between Spain and Ameieca in connection with events arising out of the Ouban insurrection. It appears that the, crew. of the CGonm petitionb were lately tried by court martial at Havanna. The Competition was a vessel that was captured bringing munitions of war to the insurgents, and the court sentenucd five of the tcrew, in eluding three Americans, to ,death. President : leveland has cabled to tne Spanish authorities that if the 'eintences be executed without a civil trial he .will regard the act as unfriendly to America. ...The Spanish statesman Canovas del. Castillo states that the affair must be settled in accordance with the law of treaties. It is reported that he has ordered the case of the men to be sub mitted to the Supicme Military Court. The New York Press are very in dignant at the decision of 'the Havanna Court-martial, and assert that the con demned men were only. guilty of smug gling; The vessel Bermud...

A Water Supply for Kalgoorlie. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 14 May 1896
A Water Supply for Kalgoorlie. FORTUNATELY the fields are likely to profit for a long time yet by the rains of about six weeks ago. The lakes have still abundance of water, the tanks are well filled, and though the supply of water is slowly but surely decreasing, there will be no scarcity of water for several months. This sufficiency for the day should not induce the residents and those interested in the district to forget + that this state of affairs will not last for ever, and that the experience of the past as to the difficulty of procuring water will be repeated unless adequate pro- 1 vision be made for cot ing with the difficulty. Owing to the increase in the population and the number of mines working, tr'e demand for water will be greater next summer than duritig: iny previous summer on these fields, and preparations should be made accordingly before it is too late. Many schemes for supplying these fields with water have been proposed, including that furnished by the Engineer-...
