Menelik, King of Shoa. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 21 May 1896
Menelik, King of Shoa. I. Morelli, who has explored the Harrar, Shoa, and Gallas countries, has been giving the Paris correspondent of the Daily News his impression of Menelik, King on Negus of Shoa. He knows him well, thinks him able and unscrupulous, and likely to make the country he rules over the Prussia of East Africa. Menelik is always buying guns, and has been for the last 12 years. He asks Europeans whom he receives to be seated on armchairs kept on purpose for them. He swears by Gonghis Gueitai and Mikael Gueitai, or St George and St Michael, the patrson of Shoa, is afraid of ghosts, and stands in awe of monks and hermits. The king wears a broad-brimmed Panama hat, or a white felt hat of the same shape. , Beneath it is a light stuff bound round the head and tied in a bow behind. His over garment is a wide mantle of black silk. shaped like the Arab bournous. Menelik used to be very fond of watches and other timepieces. The mecha nism interested him, but he cares less now.

KANOWNA. May 13. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 21 May 1896
KANOWN A. L.FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] May 13. A public meeting was held here last night, for the purpose of giving the deputation that were sent down to Perth an opportunity of explaining to the general public the results of their visit. Mr T. Harkness was voted to the chair, and introduced the speakers with a few well-chosen words. The Mayor first occupied the attention of the meeting, but the only fresh matter he intro duced from that already published by you was that it was the intention of the council to cut up the reserve on the western side of the town into 33ft allotments, and let the miners occupy them as residence areas until the ground was wanted for town extension. The Mayor was careful to explain that the married men with their wives and families were to occupy one side of the street, and single men the other. He gave no reason for this arrangement, and many people are wondering now why it should be so. Coun cillor Barry was the only other speaker, and mentioned that ...

BOULDER MAIN REEFS. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 21 May 1896
BOULDER MAIN REEFS. At Monday afternoon's call of the Kaleurli Exchange, the ishares in the Boulder Main Reef Co. had a phenomenal rise, even for a Kalgoorlie stock. The only sales made were at 50s and 68s per share, or rather more than twice the latest London quotation. The reason to which the rise is attributed is that a sensational development has taken place in the mine. It is also asserted that the 100 tons crushed at the Leviathan battery last week yielded well. Unfortunately the mine is one of the mysteries of the field, the manager having received orders from London not to divulge any information respecting it. So strict is this injunction that a few days ago an ac credited representative of one of the big London financial journals was refused per mission to inspect, or even to write a report from the manager's statements. It is a pity a sterling property such as this should be messed up by a board of new chum directors.
SMELTING GOLD ORES. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 21 May 1896
SMELTING GOLD ORES. The fact of the Australian Smelting Com pany having opened an agency for the pur chase of gold ores on this field opens up a sure market for our gold ores, and one which should be largely availed of by mine owners and prospectors. It is well known that large quantities of rich ore are at present lying at different mines on this field which, owing to the gold they contain being very fine, cannot be treated by present appliances without considerable loss of gold in the tailings and slimes. The great advantage of smelting rich gold ores as against all other methods is that no matter how refractory the ore the whole of the gold is extracted in one operation, and it is only a matter of cheap freight, and all ores where the gold is fine and the subject to slime containing 2ozs per ton and over will pay better by smelting than by ordinary treatment. At some gold mines in New South Wales, the ore of which very much resembles that of Kalgoorlie, it has been found cheaper ...
CLAUSE XI. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 21 May 1896
CLAUSE XI. An able article on the registration clauses, written by Mr H. G. Parsons, the well known Kalgoorlie solicitor now in London, for the West A?cstralian Review, concludes as follows:-" On the fields public feeling has been too strong to find vent in any of those somewhat windy threats of separation which were indulged in last year in the face of the telegraph block by the late Mr Matheson and those who acted with him, but very influential committees have been formed, and, backed by mass meetings, and in every way by the unanimous opinion of a whole district, deputations will proceed to Perth and insist on having this matter put right. There is little doubt, or rather none at all, that the fields must have their way. They have the population, the brains, and the capital, and they have vastly greater influence than Perth, owing to their close relations with London. Perth may be permitted to rule the fields, which have no time to rule them selves, but she canuot be permitted to...

THE IVANHOE GOLD-MINING COM PANY, NO LIABILITY. The first half-yearly ordinary general meet ing of shareholders was held at the registered office, 39 Queen-street, Melbourne, on Wed nesday, April 29, 1896. Mr E. Neale Wigg, chairman of directors, presided, and there was a fair attendance. The chairman, in moving the adoption of the report and balance-sheet, referred gener ally to the decided improvements which had taken place in the company's property and in the value of the stock since they last met. He read to the meeting the following tele grams from the mine manager, which had been published : "April 25. No. 5 shaft : Have encountered the true footwall, south stope, average width of lode is 18ft and looking well. " April 28: South stope, No. 5 shaft: Average width of lode is 15ft and is looking well."

THE BANQUET. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 21 May 1896
THE BANQUET. After the meeting, Mr Moran and Mr Shaw were entertained at a dinner by the leading mining and business men of the district. The dinner was held in a large room at the Criterion Hotel, and was served up in Host Donnellan's best style. The Mayor presided, and had on his right Mr Moran, and on his left " The Chief." There were other visitors present among whom were Mr McGary and Mr Martin, representative of Messrs Lewis, Robinson, and Co, London. While dinner was on, the Kanowna Brass Band played selections of music. The chairman proposed the first toast, "The Queen," followed by " Our Guests," also performed by the chairman.

In reference to Mr Shaw, he stated that he had helped him considerably in municipal mat ters, and it afforded him much pleasure to welcome them back to Kanowna. Messrs Moran, Shaw ...
NORTH BOULDER. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 21 May 1896
NORTH BOULDER. The North Boulderis opening up splendidly both at the 50ft and 100ft levels. At the upper level on the reef found last Good Friday the stone for a width of 5ft is sur prisingly rich, and the whole face fairly glistens with gold. At the 100ft level the east and west lodes are both wide and well defined, while their gold contents are equal to two or three ounces per ton. There are several hundred tons at grass averaging three or four ounees per ton, and as the Huntingdon mill and amalgamating plant will be running some time in July there is every probability of the shareholders obtaining a return for their money in a reasonable time. The pro perty promises to prove one of the good things of the field, and future developments will be watched with interest.
