The Western Argus. PUBLISHED EVERY THURSDAY. THURSDAY, MAY 28, 1896. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 28 May 1896

PUBLISHED EVERY THURSDAY. THURSDAY. MAY 28, 1896. By bitter experience the people of these fields have begun to realise that truly indeed " hope deferred maketh the heart sick." The railway, which means to them so much, has been now long and eagerly waited for. For many months past the prevailing idea was that the line to Kalgoorlie would be completed after an additional few months' work. Week by week has gone by, but the railway has not been finished yet, and at present there is no proba bility of the iron horse being seen at Kalgoorlie before the end of July. Some comfort may be derived from the fact that the earthworks have reached the town, but the residents have been so long disappointed that some of the sceptical ones amongst them cannot be blamed for fixing the opening of the railway much further away than two months. The contractors, of course, should know their own business best. They have until the end of the year to complete the line within contract time, but to the outsi...

The Australian Cricketers. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 28 May 1896

The Australian Cricketers. PERHAPS none cf the events now trans piring in any part of the world attract so much attention in Australia as the matches that are being played in Eng land by the Australian team. In com parison with the results and the details of the doings of the representatives of this continent on the English ovals, the troubles in the Transvaal, or the dis pute over the Venezuelan boundary, notwithstanding the vast national in terests that are involved, pale into insignificence in the estimation of the majority of Australians. The scores of Trott, Giffen and Hill, and the number of wickets taken by Jones are sought for with more eagerness in the news papers than the latest utterances or actions of President Kruger, Mr Chamberlain and President Cleveland on which the fate of nations may depend. Whether this should be encouraged or otherwise differences of opinion exist; but that such is the state of affairs none can deny, and all must recognise the wonderful stronghol...

THE BRUNNER RELIEF BALL. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 28 May 1896

THE BRUNNER RELIEF BALL. THE Ball in aid of the fund to assist the sufferers by the recent colliery disaster at Brunnerton, N.Z., which took place at the Amateur Athletic Hall or. Monday evening, deserved to be, and was. a complete success. There were a number of contributing causes to this result. A good working committee, with an energetic secretary had worked hard for some weeks, the Athletic Club had in view of the praiseworthy object of the ball-generously granted the use of their splendid hall, and other friends gave valuable assistanee in various ways. Dancing began shortly before 9 o'clock, the first item being a Grand March - Polka. The programme `consisted of 24 dances with supper sand wiched in between, and when the gathering' broke up at a late hour this morning, all present agreed that the evening had been a most enjoyable one. The hall was gaily decorated for the occasion with flags, and it presented a very pleasing appearance. The floor was as nearly perfect as possib...

A Satisfactory Return. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 28 May 1896

A Satisfactory Return. FoR many mo:ths past the results of the Brown Hill crushing have been awaited with much anxiety by all interested in these fields. No one acquainted with the mine could even for a moment doubt its richness. A picturesque writer in a London journal described it as Alladin's Cave, and the name does not exaggerate its wealth, but notwithstanding the strong evidence of innumerable reliable witnesses who have been through the property, if the returns from the crush ing had not been satisfactory there would be many who would not be slow to attri bute it to the poorness of the ore and not to the want of success as regards the new process tried by the Company. The experiment was a risky one for the fields, as its failure would have probably done them at least temporary injury; but all's well that ends well. The average yield of 4ozs 16dwts 6grs per ton has equalled the expectations of all save the most extreme optimists. The total yield would have been much higher wer...

KANOWNA. Kanowna Municipal Council. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 28 May 1896

KANOWNA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPORDENT. Kanowna Municipal Council. An ordinary meeting of the Municipal Council was held on Wednesday, May 20, there being present the Mayor (Mr W. Lowes), and Crs Barry, Batho, Baugh, Flynn, and Donellan. The minutes of previous meetings were read and confirmed. The Mayor reported that a corporation laborer had been engaged to clear the streets of all stones and rubbish at the rate of £4 per week. Also that the Town Clerk had taken steps to place the town in as sanitary a condition as possible, and that improve ments in the condition of the town could already be seen. F. Hanch is building a public hall, and Cr Barry wanted to know if the plans of the hall had been passed by the municipal sur veyor. The Mayor replied that most of the build ing had been erected before the Building Act had been gazetted as applying to Kanowna.

A Severe Critic. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 28 May 1896

A Severe Critic. THE journalist who writes under the well-known nom w de plume of " The Vagabond " appears to be brimful of the prejudice existing in the Eastern colo nies against the West Australian gold fields. An old proverb says that all seems yellow to the jaundiced eye so coming to West Australia imbued with the belief that all the favorable reports regarding the goldfields have been merely the outcome of an endeavor to create a boom, it is not surprsing that the Vagabond's report should be of a damag ing nature. He not alone makes the most of any features of an unpromising nature that comes within his ken, but many of his statements contain gross inaccuracies which no doubt are acciden tal but it is curious these errors are all of the wrong kind, as far as the interests of the goldfields are concerned. The Vagabond stayed but a few days inl the neighborhood of Kalgoorlie, and we have not heard that he made great ex ertions to get a knowledge of the dis trict or of the people,...

FRIDAY, MAY 22. (Before Mr L. R. Davis, Warden.) [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 28 May 1896

FRIDAY, MAY 22. (Before Mr L. R. Davis, Warden.) Hearing of an order to chow cause why H. R. Davies' water right, Kalgoorlie, should not be forfeited. Mr Mann appeared for Mr Davies, and roised the point that the summons to show cause was issued under the Water Right regu lations of 1895, whereas section 2 of the regulations of 1896 repeals all regulations previously in existence under the Act of 1886, and its amendments without saving liabilities already created or incurred, and that that the summons for forfeiture does not allege distinctly the grounds on which the forfeiture is sought, and the regulations which have not been complied with. Further proceedings stayed pending the decision of the Crown Law Ohices upon the' above points. McKenzie v. Hannans Reward Company. -Objection to registration of lease 2329, adjourned from May 19. Mr Jenkins for Mr McKenzie, and Messrs Jodrell, Henning, Pilkington and Stow (instructed by Messrs Hare and Jodrell) for the company. It was admitted...

Separate Gold Returns. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 28 May 1896

Separate Gold Returns. EVERY week the injustice done to Kalgoorlie and the district through the present system of issuing the gold returns becomes greater. The necessity for separate gold returns for the various goldfields districts has been frequently pointed out in these columns, but thoughthe Kalgoorlie Town Council moved in the matter, nothing definite has been yet done by the authorities. In a recent issue we showed that this district, which receives no credit in the returns for yielding any gold, produced during last month a large proportion of the gold exported from the colony. During April the total amount of gold exported from West Australia was 16,772oz, but the two April crush ings of the Great Boulder gave 3165oz and 1828oz respectively, and the Lake View crushings for the month were 628oz and 668oz. The Ivanhoe crushed 464cz during the month, and a good quantity of other gold was produced in the district, but considering only the Boulder and Lake View the total yield fo...

West Australia's Auriferous Wealth. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 28 May 1896

West Australia's Auriferous Wealth. BERGRATo r CARL, SCHMEISSER, the Prussian Government mineralogist, came to these fields with so high a reputation and maintained such an im pressive silence as to his opinion of their auriferous weath that his report was anxiously awaited, and the feeling generally prevailed that it would very considerably add to the sum of know ledge of the mineral capabilities of West Australia. The expectations that were entertained of the report were such that most persons looked for it to reveal the future of the fields with certainty, and it is not surprising, under the circum stances, that they have been dis appointed. To form an accurate opinion on the geological conditions of West Australia is, as Herr Schmeisser admits, rendered very difficult "by the unusual surface formation which offers neither on hillsides nlor in such water courses as exist any rock or outcrop for. examination. This," he adds, "becomes all the more perplexing by reason of the great ...

General Wires. SYDNEY, May 25, Mr John Davies, M.L.O., died on Saturday, at his residence, at Moore Park, after an illness of some months. He was 58years of age. An old woman named Isabel Lydia Healds, was burnt to death at her residence in Arden-street, Coogee, this morning. it is supposed that a candle set fire to the bed curtains. Deceased was 68 years of age. The attitude of the Newcastle miners was shown further last night when the West Wallsend and Seeham lodges decided to stand out for the full terms of the strike. The Cardiff miners have had to accept a slight reduction on the terms under which they were working, being now paid 3s 6d per ton, but not having the advantage of the concession for yardage, &c., granted by the 1888 agreement. MErLBOURNE, May 2 5. A woman named Hannah Moriarty, 40 years of age, attempted suicide by jumping into the Yarra yesterday, but she was rescued by Constable Grant.

A BRUTAL HUSBAND. [BY TELEGRAPH.1 SYDNEY, May 21. Mr Justice Simpson had to listen to a shocking story in the Divorce Court to-day. Cecelia Shying, formerly of Stapleton, petitioned for a divorce from John Robert Shying on the ground of adultery and desertion. The parties were married in 1891. The story told by the petitioner, who is a young woman of timid and nervous demeanor, disclosed revoltingeonducton the part of the despondent. His misconduct was such that the petitioner became very ill, and had to be treated at the Sydney Hospital for a considerable time. When discharged from the hospital the respondent refused to allow her to come home to her mother. He terrorised her into staying in a park all day, and in the evening com pelled her to earn money for him by soliciting men in the streets. He misconducted himself with a woman who lives in the same house as himself, and his wife one night woke up to find that her hus band had a strange mate in her bed. He had also occasionally ...

TE3 LEQRLAP ICG. A TERRIFIO GALE. [By TELGRAPH.] SYDNEY, May 25. Three shipping disasters, all to Sydney-owned vessels, have been re ported as a result of the howling southerly gale that has been raging along the coast during the past 48 hours, and in the case of one there was loss of life. While making for a haven of safety two of the wrecks occurred. Theschocner Condongand the barquette Karoola were the unfortunate vessels. They were driven by the hurricane squalls and mountainous seas on to Morna Point whilst endeavoring to make for the safe anchorage which Nelson's Bay affords. The crew of the Condong landed safely, but those on the Karoola were less fortunate. Whilst endeavoring to escape from the wreck in the ship's Ioat th~ey were capsized in a heavy sea, and two mates and a seaman were drowned. The third disaster was the foundering of the steamer Byron, off Newcastle. The Condong was a steamer of 96 tons, and was wrecked on Saturday night. During a southerly gale the vcssel ...

The Newcastle Strike. MEETING AT BLACK FLAG. (FROM OUR CORREBPONDENT-) May 17. On Sunday, May 10, a large crowd as sembled at Black Flag to undertake ways and means to show practical sympathy with the miners now out on strike at Newcastle. Mr T. Ellis, who convened the meeting, took the chair, and after reading some correspondence from Mr Curley, the Searetary of the Amal gamated Miners Association, N.S.W., appeal ing for help, said that it needed few words to lay the matter before them as it spoke for itself. He felt sure thatall would contribute to the fund, and felt confident that the Flag would acquit itself creditably. He would ask Mr C. Cutts to move the first motion. Mr Cutts said it afforded him pleasure to accede to the request of the chairman. The cause was one that appealed to their hearts and pockets, and he felt sure they would rally round their fellow-workers in their attempt to improve their position. It was no use wasting words for the very fact that it was an appeal...

Bardoc Notes. May 23, 1895. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 28 May 1896

Bardoc Notes. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) May 23, 1895. Business continues brisk here. Numerous enquiries for properties are being made daily, and I have much pleasure in reporting the sale of tqe Homeward Bound for a very substantial figure to a well-known Kalgoorlie buyer. The Homeward Bound is a 12-acre block, and immediately adjoins the famous Excelsior on the north. The main shaft is down 87 feet, at which depth the reef was cut, being seven feet wide and showing fine and coarse gold freely. Further north another shaft has been sunk to about 45ft. A lode formation was met with here, running parallel with the main reef, and carries the precious metal in very payable quantities. In addition to the above, a lot of costeening work has been done, exposing the reef in several places. The fortunate buyers are to be congratulated upon having secured, what is regarded here, as a most valuable property. On the Excelsior development work is being rapidly pushed forward. The water supply...
