Kalgoorlie Municipal Council. MONDAY, MAY 18. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 21 May 1896
Kalgoorlie Municipal Council. MONDAY, MAY 18. Present: Crs Nethercott (acting-Mayor), McKenzie, Tinley, and Fimister. The minutes of the previous meeting were read and adopted cn the motion of Cr Tinley, seconded by Cr McKenzie. THE MAYOR'S REPORT. The acting-Mayor said he had. not a great deal to report since their last meeting. Pro gress had been made with the meliling- of the street, and every precautioi had been taken to see that the work was properly done. He was afraid the work had been begun hurridly, or it would have been a much better job. Mr Hawkins, the Council's Engineer, had given much attention to the work. Rain was badly wanted to bind the road. Crs McKenzie and Fimister suggested that salt water should be used for binding the road. Cr Tinley proposed that salt water be used on two chains of the road, one of the council's drays to be employed on the work. Jr McKenzie seconded.- Carried. Cr McKenzie asked what was being done with reference to the removal of hessian bui...
Goldfields' Electoral Registration League. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 21 May 1896
Goldfields' - Electoral Registration League. ONE of the few questions upon which all political parties agree is the advisability of registration of votes, and all who have the interests of the goldfields at heart, no matter whether they be Liberals, Conservatives, or Radicals, must recognise that there are many reasons why it is particularly desirable that the mining community of the colony should represent as strong a body of voters as possible, so that they may be fully represented in Parliament. The re-dis tribution of seats will be to a certain extent based on the number of electors in the various districts, and in order to secure anything like a reasonable pro portion of members, the goldfields should have a voters' roll of considerable length. Mr Vosper, therefore, has done good work in establishing the Gold fields Electoral Registration League. The application forms for a vote con-' tain so many complicated questions that some such organisation was, badly needed. There are fe...
The Newcastle Strike. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 21 May 1896
The Newcastle Strike. THE best friends of both capital and labor now agree that strikes are attended by disastrous consequences to employers and employees, and that in nearly every case the latter of the two suffer the more severely. Strikes injure trade, and are productive of a waste of tiSle, energy, and money; but their most lamentable feature perhaps is their resemblance to war, inasmuch as might always wins, no matter whether might be in the right or in the wrong. The victory goes usually to the side with the longest purse, and wage-earners have to face a hard and practically hopeless battle when they challenge capital to fight with the weapon which is its strongest. General regret must be felt at the failure of the attempts to settle amicably the dif ferences between the mine owners and miners of Newcastle. Both parties have assumed very hostile attitudes. The masters lately decided that the men on strike should not be allowed to go back to workl except a reduc tion was made o...

Correspondence. [The Editor does not hold himself responsible for the opinions expressed by correspondents.] KALGOORLIE OR HANNANS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 21 May 1896
Correspondence. [The Editor does not hold himself respon sible for the opinions expressed by cor respondents.] KALGOORLIE OR HANNANS. TO THE EDITOR. SIR,-Reading in your valuable paper that it is proposed to form a committee of the pioneers of Hannans, I thing it a fitting oppor tunity to suggest that another attempt, and let us hope this time successfully, be made to change the name to Hannans. I am led to understand that on the former occasion when the question was before the public that so little interest was exhibited that scarcely any one attended the poll. It goes without saying that the similarity between the names Coolgardie and Kalgoorlie is altogether too close, and this is the case in many other instances where native names have been chosen to represent the abodes of English speaking people, and I for one much prefer any English sounding name to the compli cations of the native tongue. Why, when you go to say Kalgoorlie, you have to stop to think how to get your tongue ab...
TELEGRAPHIC. PERTH, May 18. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 21 May 1896
TELEERAPHIC. PERTH, May 18. Objections and applications for pro tection areas'at North Dandalup were heard in Perth to-day, by Mr Frank Reid, who has been appointed under the Act as Minister's agent. The cases were all heard and disposed of before half-past three, but most of the cases have been reserved for the Minister's final decision. It is under stood that the Government intend to declare the field a goldfield at the end of the month. The Engineer-in-Chief states that the Government will take over the Kalgoorlie railway line as far as Boo rabbin on June 80 next. He says the line is expected to be finished by July, although the contract will not be up until the end of the year. During the five months intervening the contractors will run the traffic at their own risk. MELBOURNE, May 18.

The Storyteller. GOLD-MINERS IN THE PAST. SOME EXPERIENCES IN CALIFORNIA. LYNCH LAW. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 21 May 1896
The Storyteller. GGL1)-MINERS IN THE PAST. SOME EXPERIENCES IN CALIFORNIA. LYNCH LAW. Now that the attention of the entire world has been attracted to gold-mining by the magnitude of the ou' puts from South Africa and West Australia., perhaps a few of the experiences of a gold-seeker may not prove uninteresting. But I am not a miner of the present day : it is nearly half acentury since I first set foot in California, and there is a vast difference between the way in which the precious metal is now extracted and the primitive methods which were considered per feet in my time. The miner of fitty years ago never dreamt of machinery, costly and magnificent, capable of crushing thousands of tons of quartz per week. He "dollied," or ground, his little bits of rock by means of a contrivance resembling a pestle and mortar, and it was only the very rich.st stone that repaid him for his labor. In fact, there was very little crushing in those days, quartz ot being easily found sufficiently ric...

Telegraphic News WEST AUSTRALIA. ROBBERY. PBERT, May 19. A daring shop rol bery was pe-ne trated at Fremantle to-r:ght. During tI the absence of Mr Costello, £9 8s which he left on a ledge aehind the counter, was stolen.

The police were communicated with as soon as the theft was discovered, and Con stables Conlon and Reading shortly after arrested two men wlho had been in the shop, but as 22s 9d was found on one and nothing on the other, They were released.
Kurnalpi. May 18. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 21 May 1896
Ku?urnalpi. May 18. Kurnalpi is at last under police protection, and the days of " Roll Ups " and summary justice are presumably at an end. A com modious police barracks is in course of erec tion, and I am informed by one who has in spected the plans that the cell accommoda tion leaves nothing to be desired. The Government have also voted us a further £250 for our Miners' Institute, making £500 in all, and the building will probably be at once proceeded with. Mr Warden Fielding is evidently deter mined Inot Ito encourage any promiscuous attempts at obtaining unnecessary exemp tion-many an applicant was refused at his last court here, and it has been made pretty evident that if a man wants to hold ground here he must work it. Development work is being ateadilv proceeded with, but no sea sational finds have been made this week.
Mining Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 21 May 1896
Mining Notes. A battery is being erected on the Four-in Hand Mine at Black Flag. The dividend in connection with the Premier gold mine is payable in Adelaide on the 29th inst. The Brown Hill clean-up is almost com pleted, and the result will be made known in a day or two. Mr Pritchard Morgan, who made an ex tended stay in Kalgoorlie at the end of last year, has reached England again. It must be very cheering to Herr Schmeisser to find the whole market has boomed on his somewhat adverse report on our mines. A reward of £1CC0 is offered by the New South Wales Minister for Mines for the dis covery of payable gold at a depth of not less than 2000ft. The output of the Auckland (N.Z.) gold fields for the year ended March 81 is valued at £872,106, against £261,746 for the corres ponding period of last year. Private cable messages have been received stating that the Great Boulder Company has decided to issue two subsidiary companies to work two of the northern blocks. Late wires-received on...
Mr Moran, M.L.A., and Mr J. S. Shaw at Kanowna. May 14. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 21 May 1896
Mr Moran, M.L.A., and Mr J. S. Shaw at Kanowna. May 14. A public meeting was held here last night for the purpose of giving Mr Moran an opportunity of expressing his views. The Mayor, Mr W. Lowes, took the chair, and there were about 500 miners present. The Mayor introduced Mr Moran, who said it was some considerable time since last he had an opportunity of speaking to the residents of White Feather. He had received a splendid reception then, and it was due to the fight he had made then in company with the miners' delegate that the alluvial mining laws of West Australia were the most hberal in Australia. He represented the largest electorate in Australia, in fact there were many centres of it he had not seen. He re gretted that this was so, but it must be re membered that there was no payment of members in W.A., and that the butts of his cheque book could tell a tale of the efforts that he made to try and keep in touch with all centres in his electorate. However, he had done his bes...

British Westralia Syndicate. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 28 May 1896
British Westralia Syndicate. Presiding on April 15 at the ordinary general meeting of this syndicate in London Mr E. S. Revett, chairmnan, moved the adop. tion of the report and accounts made up to February 29 last. The dividend (20 percent) would show that the directors and manager had worked hard in the interest of the share holders. They might have paid a larger divi. dend, but took into consideration the fact that in a new country like Western Anstralia ready money was always handy, so they did not think it advisable to divide up to the hilt. They had actually made a profit of 55 per cent. on their total capital, and they had in hand, in cash at the bank, a sum equal to nearly the whole of the capital. Unfortu nately, Mr Lane, who is on a visit to England, was too ill to be present, or he would have given a full account of their prospects and the various properties they had acquired. He would, however, write a report, which would be circulated among the shareholders. The report ...

Pritchard Morgan's Opinion [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 28 May 1896
Pritchard Morgan's Opinion Mr Pritchard Morgan, M.P. for Merthyr Tydfil, has returned to England. Questioned as to his opinion of the prospects of Western Australia, Mr Pritchard Morgan said that he considered that they had a very bright future. It was a great country, and the only difficulties in the way of profitable mining were' the want of water, and the heavy cost and highly inconvenient mode of transit. The opening of the railiway to Coolgardie was of immense importance, and would materially assist in the further de velopment of that dissrict, the reefs of which were of a very aurifcrous character, as was well known. The difficulties of transit were not insuperable, and as the country became more opened up the cost of transit would be considerably lessened, while the mode of transit would be greatly im proved. He purchased one mine in Western Australia, and was negotiating for others for himself and friends. He believed that the resources of some of the mines of Western Austra...

Kalgoorlie Racing Club. A meeting convened by Mr C. Cutburb was held at the Exchange Hotel on Tuesday night for the purpose of forming a racing club in Kalgoorlie. There was a very large attendance. Mr R. L. Hair was voted to the chair. The Chairman said that he was glad to see so many present. If a club was formed at once they would be able to have a race meeting directly after the Coolgardie meeting, and they would thus be sure of good entries. Mr O'Connor moved that a racing club, to be called the Kalgoorlie Racing Club, be formed. Mr Court seconded,--Carried. Mr Whelan moved that His Excellency the Governor be asked to act as patron. Seconded by Mr Clive Smith.-Carried. Mr Hair was proposed as President but declined, and he moved that the acting Mayor, Mr Nethercott, be elected. Seconded by Mr Court.-Carried. After discussion it was resolved to form a committee of 15 members, seven to form a quorum. About 35 nominations were received and a ballot was taken which resulted in the ...
