BULONG. BULONG, May 8. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 14 May 1896
BULONG. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [BY TELEGRAPH.] BULoNG, May 8. There is no doubt that the fast growing importance of Bulong is attracting outside notice. Only last Saturday we received a visit from our member, Mr Moran, and now "The Chief," Mr Shaw, and Mr Martin, representing one of the largest financial houses in London, are amongst us. Luckily Mr Moran has found ample to do in inspect ing the valuable properties round here and as far as Mount Monger, and it still with us. It speaks volumes for our district when a gentleman of Mr Moran's stamp finds it necessary to devote so much of his time to this district. The people of Bulong, through the Progress Committee, gave Mr Shaw and his friends a most hearty and sincere welcome at Mr Waters' Bulong Hotel. Captain Truscott presided and there was a most representative meeting. Mr Shaw gave a most entertaining description of the fields as they were and- as they are, and strongly advised the people of Bulong to pull together and con...

A BOULDER ROAD TROUBLE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 21 May 1896
A BOULDER ROAD TROUBLE. TO THE EDITOR. Sm--I desire to draw the attention of the powers that be to the small creek that wends fits way directly across the BoUlder road, and proceeds from the neighborhood of the Hannan's Proprietary. On several occasions when returning to the Boulder from Hannans I have stumbled into the sludge caused by this overflow of water. I have also heard several others complain of the nuisance. I believe by the act no company is allowed to so obstruct a public way, and I trust that this note wilJ have the effect of the nuisance being abated.--I am, &c., PEDESTRIAN. May 16.

Correspondence. [The Editor does not hold himself respon sible for opinions expressed by corres pondents.] THE LOCAL POST OFFICE MUDDLE. TO THE EDITOR. SIa,-Being one of the many unfortunates not residing within the precincts of the town of "Hannans," and thereby not participat ing in the pleasure of receiv'ng my mail by letter-carrier, I feel, at least, when call ing at the office, that some effort might be made to avoid the unenviable necessity of waiting one's turn .in a field of 50 to 500. If the town delivery were abolished, and our many respected citizens had to fall in line, I would ask how long such a heathen practice would be tolerated ? Commercial men would scorn the thought of subjecting their clients to such treatment, well know ing that such would speedily meet with the contempt it merits. Rumor says that our worthy "Premier" has remarkable improve ments in store, viz., the importation of some " British Johnnies," to assist the telegraphic branch, Why not include a few ...

Government Buildings. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 21 May 1896
Government Buildings. ONE of the leading features of the report of the Victorian expert, Mri Caldwell, en the Post and Telegraph Department of this colony was his warm endorsement of the frequent assertions of the Postmoster-General, that more space is required to conduct the enoic mously increased postal and telegraphic business. Mr Caldwell has too much experience of office work not to"recog nise that officills cannot perform as much and as efficient work when the accommodation is insufficient, as when roomy and suitable offices are provided, and concludes the repcrt by expressly stating that no radical reform is possible until additional space is provided for extending the department. These remarks apply with equal force to all branches of the Government Service, and a better exemplification of the ne= cessity for improvement could not be found in the colony than is present at Kalgoorlie. The Government, it is but right to state, are scarcely to blame. The tenders for the present...
A Useful Organisation. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 21 May 1896
A Useful Organisation. A LONG-FELT want in connection with the mining community will be filled by ti:e Mine Managers' Association of West Australia, which was recently formed with headquarters at Kalgoorlie. The organisation will be on the lines of similar bodies in the other colonies, and one of its main objects is to maintain the rights and privileges pertaining to the position of mining managers. This is specially necessary in consequence of the numerous bogus experts who flourish on all goldfields. As Herr Schmeisser has pointed out in his report, members of all trades, formerly sailors, soldiers. professional men, mer chants, and clerks in the air of this district develop into mining authorities with amazing rapidity. Smatters are usually Itore brisk and pert than those who understand an art, and the public often mistake these men for genuine experts. The results are disastrous to those who put faith in them, and as the fact of these men being merely bogus experts does not alwa...
THE MINERS' CLUB AT THE BOULDER. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 21 May 1896
THE MINERV' CLUB AT THE BOULDER. IT is only a few weeks since it was an nounced in the columns of the MINER that steps were beinr taken to erect a building suitable for recreation purposes at the Boulder, and it speaks volumes for the energy of those who have had the matter in hand that the work has so far proceeded as to allow of the building being forma'ly opened. The organisatiou which has performed this work and will be responsible for the mainten ance of the building is the Miners' Club. A committee of about a dozen representative miners, with Mr W. O'Neil, the popular manager of the Lake View, at their head, has been formed, and it is proposed to make the club an attractive resort for miners and residents of the Boulder, especially in the winter evenings. The nucleus of a library has been obtained, qnd the principal papers and periodicals of the colonies will be at the disposal of members. In addition to this it is intended to have a programme of amuse ments for each week. The...

New South Wales Politics. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 21 May 1896
New South Wales Politics. THE present Premier of New South Wales has become famous for his broad views and fighting powers. He has made Sydney lractically the freest port in the world, and provided for the loss to the revenue through the abolition of protective duties by an increased land tax. This was only accomplished after a severe fight with the Legislative Council, and afterthe reform had been submitted to the judg ment of the country through the medium of a general election. In the Mother Colony, as in most of the other colonies, the so-called Upper Chamber has long been a stumbling block in the path of progressive legislation. When, as in Victoria, the qualifications for electors and candidates for the Council are very high, the Chamber is purely represen tative of the wealthy class, and the presence of such a chamber cannot be regarded as other than a blot on a colony's constit :tion. The days have long since passed when any par ticular section of the community should have t...
PERTH FOOTBALL. PERTH, May 17. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 21 May 1896
PERTH FOOTBALL. [BY TELEGRAPH.] PERTH, May 17. The football season was opened on Satur day, the weather being splendid. Fremantle played the Rovers on the Association Ground, Perth. The ground was in good order. Some brilliant play was witnessed, but there was a little roughness on the part of some players which will have to be put down with a strong hand by the central umpire. The Fremantle team were heavier than the Rovers, and were consequently able to force the game, which proved an easy win for them. At half-time the scores stood :- Fremantle, 4 goals 5 behinds; Rovers, 2 behinds. The conclusion of the game saw Fremantle 10 goals 5 behinds to Rovers' 4 goals 5 behinds. For the winners, the play. of Doran, Musgrove, Moorehouse, Watson, Wilson, Thurgood, and McDonald was bril liant, and was much admired ; while Sumpter (whose play was certainly the most brilliant on the ground). Baxter, Sedders, T. Price, Lennon, and Henri were noticeable for the Rovers.
