Schools of Mines. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 14 May 1896

Schools of Mines. THE people of Kalgoorlie and the dis trict would do well. to consider the advisability of taking steps for the estab lishment of a School of Mines in the town. The benefit conferred by the mining industry on West Australia of recent years has been enormous. To it the colony owes its present prosperity, and as the advancement of the industry is of the utmost importance itis a matter for considerable surprise that no School of Mines has yet been brought into existence in West Australia, more especially as such institutions have proved so beneficial in the other colonies, particu-. larlyat Ballaratand Bendigo. Mostmin ing men in this district lightly regard theoretical knowledge pure and simple, and its value may be easily over-esti mated, but a combination of theory and practice is necessary, in order to secure a complete acquaintance with all that is useful to mining men. The majority of the residents.of these fields are ignorant of even the elementary facts of geol...

At the 'opening of Fitzgerald's circus to night, everything passed off successfully until it came to the turn of Professor Peart, the champion diver, to perform his feat of diving from the roof of the tent to a tank. a distance of between 60 and 70 feet.
