Rowing. THE INTERCOLONIAL EIGHT-OAR RACE. MELBOURNE, May 17. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 21 May 1896
Rowing. THE INTERCOLONIAL EIGHT-OAM RAGE. (Br IELEGRAPH.) ' MLBOUtiNE, May 17. The Intercolonial Eight-oar Race was rowed yesterday. The Victorian crew se cured the first place, and the Queensland men were last. Though Victoria won all the way, the race was by Po means a hollow victory, as New South Wales were only de feated by a length. The time, 17min. l7sec.. shows the pace that was set. Queensland was out of it before the mile was reached. Victoria has now a record of 14 wins, New South Wales four, and Queensland one. The race won by Victoria last year is in dispute, it being contended that the drew was not eligible under the amateur rules.

HANNANS FOOTBALL CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 21 May 1896
HANNANS FOOTBALL CLUB. The first match arranged by the new club was played on the recreation ground yester day afternoon There was a good roll-up of members. and sides were chosen and play began soon after 3 o'clock. One side was named Brown Hill, as a number of men from the mine were playing, and the other was called Hlannaus. Very fair form was shown by about a dozen players, and it is evident that the town possesses the nucleus of agood team. As about 80 men were following, the game, which resulted in a draw--4 goals all -does not call for much remark. Mr Carmody, from the I.O.U., made an efficient umpire. The club will have to have all the stumps removed from the ground before regular matches are commenced, and on the next occasion-even if it be only a scratch match-players should turn up in uniform.

The Western Argus. PUBLISHED EVERY THURSDAY. THURSDAY, MAY 21, 1896. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 21 May 1896
PUBLISHED EVERY THURSDAY. THURSDAY. MAY 21, 1896. FROM many quarters of late evidence has come proving that the Kalgoorlie route for the Menzies line is increasing in favor in the metropolis, and amongst the disinterested residents of these fields as well as of the colony generally. The public aie becoming better educated in the geography of the towns affected, with the inevitable result that they recognise the immense superiority of a direct line from Kalgoorlie to Menzies over the zig-zag route proposed by the people of Coolgardie, or the no less absurd route advocated in the interests of Southern Cross. The question, of course, should be considered apart alto gether from any benefits that the route chosen would confer on any of the three towns, and the route shoutd be formed that would best serve the largest number of people. This is the position Kal goorlie has taken up from the outset, feeling perfect confidence in the strength of their case. The danger to be feared now arises ...
KANOWNA NEWS. May 19. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 21 May 1896
KANOWNA NEWS. -4t---- [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] May 19. A large number of miners are enrolling their names on the electoral roll for Yilgarn. This is owing in the main to the energy of one of our best-known citizens, as well as to the persistent warnings of the goldfields' press. This gentleman, who does not wish his name published, was kept busy on Satur day night in the Municipal Chambers filling in the forms and attesting the signatures. Quite 100 men made claims on this occasion to have their names on the roll, and I hear that there were about 58 forms filled in by the same gentleman at Balagundi. There is nothing fresh to report about the Post Office robbery. The police have done all in their power to trace the thieves, but, in the absence of all clues, find that there is ab solutely nothing more to do, and are conse quently evincing a masterly in activity. Last week I mentioned one of Kanowna' outlying districts. Now I propose drawing the attention of your readers attentio...
A Happy Farewell. PRESENTATION TO CAPTAIN BROOME. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 21 May 1896
A Happy Farewell. PRESENTATION TO CAPTAIN BROOME. On Sunday afternoon about 100 employees on Marmion's 240 acre leases assembled at the mine office for the piurpose of bidding fare well to Captain Broome, who is giving up the management of the property, and is about to enter into business at Menzies. Ir Bateson read an address signed by the employees, and which referred to the appre ciation of the manager's many good qualities and the sorrow that was felt at his leaving. Mr Hancock, foreman on the property, in presenting a gold sovereign case to the Captain, said that it was with mingled feelings he made the presentation. He was sorry that they were losing a gentleman-in every sense of the word (cheers)-who bad endeared himself to every man and boy under his charge, but he was pleased that their loss was to be Captain Broome's gain. On behalf of all present, he wished him God-speed. Messrs Williams, O'Keefe, Martin, and others endorsed the remarks of Messrs Hancock and Bateson. Mr M...

MATCH AGAINST AN ELEVEN OF ENGLAND. THE ENGLISHMEN COLLAPSE. LONDON, May 18. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 21 May 1896
MATCH AGAINST AN ELEVEN OF ENGLAND. THE ENGLISHMEN COLLAPSE. LoNDoN, May 18. The Australians began their third match to-day on the Crystal Palace Ground against a scratch team repre senting England, ard consisting of: Hilliard, J. Briggs, A. Mold, Baker, Sugg, A. D. Pougher, J. T. Rawlin, C. Smith, C. E. De Trafford, H. Ward, and A. Ward. There was a fair attendance at the beginning of the game. As the after noon wore on many suburbanites came to see the finish of the day's play. This was in itself rather disappointing, far although the wicket was good the Australian bowlers had matters pretty much their own way all through the day. - De Trafford, the English captain, won the toss, and elected to bat. The innings was a disastrous one from the first, as with the score at 27, two wickets went down in a few minutes, and at lunch time there were six men out for 95. The batting was by no means brilliant, while on the other -hand the fielding of tl:e Australians was distinctly good. The i...
