BAMBOO CREEK. (fBOM OUH OVTX COBBKSPOVDEITT.) Bamboo Creek, March 22. As has already been stated m these columns, tlie recent rains have materially interfered with the speedy transit of machinery from Condon to the several mines here that have it on the way, and as yet none of this plant has made its appearance on the field ; but it is expected that before this is printed the first lot belonging to the Bulletin will have arrived. Abont eight tons for the Bulletin Block are now somewhere be tween here and Condon, and should the balance (some six or seven tons) be forwarded without any lengthy delay, this gear will be erected in a compara tively short space of time, as Mr Parker has now on this claim everything in the shape of foundations, levels, &c., in readiness. O'Brien has come through from Condon, after a severe battle, with three teams laden with sawn timber for the shafts of the Bamboo Queen and Reward Mines.

FEDERAL CONVENTION. [flV TELKGHAPH.] Adelaide, March 28. It is uulikely that any of the Westralian delegates will take rart in the discassiou on Mr. Barton's re solution, all being very much an noyed at the prolongation of useless talk, and the postponement of real work. Several members, in speak ing to-day, said that had they known how much t'me was going to be wasted, they would never have taken the trouble to come over, iu face of the general elections coming on shortly, and they want the pro ceedings concluded with the greatest dispatch possible, consistently with the thorough carryiug out of the work of framing a constitution for the Commonwealth, so that they could return in time to address the electors. They are frightened that if more work is not done, and less time wasted iu futile talkiug, they will run great danger of losing their seats in the Legislature, through not devoting proper attention to their electorates. .Sir John Forrest in tends to call attention to-morrow to...

AN AFGHAN EXECUTED. Perth March 31. The execution of Jumna Khan, the Afghan who was the chief actor in the fearful tragedy committed at Fremantle on the 3rd December last, when William Griffith, wharf inspector, was fatally at tacked with an axe, took place at Fre mantle gaol yosteidav morning. The condemned man met his fate calmly, aud on the scaffold all arrangements were carried out without the slightest hitch, death beiug apparently instantaneous. Jumna Khan refused the attendance of the Mahomet priest, MirzaKhan, during his last days of life, the only fellow countryman who visited him whilst he was in the condemned cell, being an Afghan named Azau Khan, another pri soner in the gaol, who was allowed to pray with the unhappy murderer during his last hours. Khan was asked if he would like to say anything before suffer ing the extreme penalty of the law, and replied,No, sorry but I could not help it."

TERRIBLE MURDER. [Newspaper Article] — The Pilbarra Goldfield News — 2 April 1897

TERRIBLE MURDER. At MuJgee, Walter John and Daniel Phillips were charged with umrdeiing their father at Bellalippa, near Cassilis, daring November last. Phillips, it ap pears, disappeared from his selection while looking for sheep. His horse retained with the saddle and bridle, bat a diligent search through the country failed to disclose any trace of him. Eventually, however, the police were informed that the remains of a body had been found iu a burnt stump hole near a hut where Phillips had spent the night lieforc his disappearance. Today, Dr. Rennie, the Jhng Gov ernment Pathologist, deposed that the bones were human, and had been burnt while green, and a piece of breast bone which was produced, had a bullet hole in it. It was stated the bullet had been found in Hie ashes.

STATE-ESTABLISHED BATTERIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Pilbarra Goldfield News — 2 April 1897

STATE-ESTABLISHED BAT TERIES. In our last issae we announced that the Government intended to estab lish, upon the varions goldfield*, crashing plants for the use of private leaseholders, and this deter mination was hailed with ranch pleasure throughout this district. I/ater advices, as may be seen in onr telegraphic columns, would seem to indicate that, so far as Pilbarra Goldfield is concerned, a single plant suitable for the treatment of ore is considered by the wiseacres below snfficieut to cope with onr necessities, and here, again, the deplorable ignorance so frequently manifested of late concerning tho Nor'-West goldfields is once more shown. At present, one of tbB greatest drawbacks the private claim holder must straggle agaiust is the impossi bility of getting his stone crashed ; and, tbongh where a battery is already established in connection with a mine this does not apply, it certainly has a very detrimental effect npon the development of localities which are distant from...

MINING, ? PILBARRA GOLDFIELD. WESTERN SUAW. (fbou ope own corrkspoxdfkt). Wkbtkhn Suaw, Mnrdi 24. There is nothing sensational to report this week. The Imperial Company's manager, Mr. K. C. McGregor, is push ing 011 the developmental work in connection with this mine with great energy, and has kept his men emplo3red principally in making new passes and driving frt^h levels. He further eon templates, I understand, the sinking of a deep-level shaft shortly. There are now about fifty miners employed here, and fresh faces are noticeable every day. Many of the men have travelled hither from the Whim Creek copper mine, and nearly all who asked obtained work. The Imperial Company's manager lias posted a notice calling for tenders for the supply of 200 cords of firewood, which may be increased to 600 cords at the option of the successful tenderer. This looks very promising, and it seems as though the battery attached to this mine is likely to be kept running con tinuously for some time to c...

TAMROXJRRAH. (fbom oub own cobbesfoxdent). Tamboukhmi, March 24. After wearily waiting many months, there is at last some probability of getting ore crushed. The Imperial Company, at Western Shaw, have now got their full complement of stamps to work, and are shortly going to crush some public 6tonc. The first lot from this place will he al>out 100 tons from the Tambourrali King and Western Chief, the first load of which will be carted to-day. Altogether there are some 300 tons ready for treatment at grass here, and I think it will be found that the whole will average mors than 2oz per ton, which should give a very much needed impetus to the place. Leases that have for some time been abandoned are gradually finding favor in the eyes of others than the original applicants, and are being re-taken up. Lately three, viz., the Rushinatte, Young Australian, and King Extended, have been re-applied for, and now that there is a cli&nce, though a costly oue, as it means an outlay of...

Sir Hicks Beach, the Chancellor, in speaking to the motion, declared that financial or political Home Rule were equally fatal, and the Govern ment would, he added, adhere to that «ysteui or taxation which was common to both countries. They wonld, however, lend special help to develop Irish resources, if the new commission which was to be ap pointed so advised.

I Regarding the McPhee's Reward, matters are in no way improved ; in fact, for some unaccountable reason no word has con:e*to hand from John Ball for the past three or four months. It is generally stated that an action against this company for the recovery of a con-j siderabl? sum is on the list of business : for the next sitting of the Marble Bar \ court, and in the event of the plaintiff being successful, the probable result at an early date will be the selling up of the plant and effects, included in which j area splendid ten head battery with the i latest improvements in gold saving ap- j paratus, manufactured by a well-known j Castlemaine (Vic.) firm, two portable i boilers of English make, and a Berdan pan.
