NORTH BOULDER. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 28 May 1896
NORTH BOULDER. The lace of the south-east drive on the course of the lode at the 50ft level from the west shaft on this mine is showing splendid gold. The formation appears to be 10 or 11 ft thick, and the full width of the drive is extremely rich. Most of the gold is in the form of fine particles of metal deposited in clay-like patches, while occasionally small deposits of metallic gold occur in the heart of the stone. The show of gold is one of the best on the field at the present time, and promises to create a good deal of speculation in the eastern properties of the line before long. At the 100ft level from the main shaft both the eastern and western lodes are opening splendidly, the eastern line being about 8ft thick and the western 6ft wide. The ore from both these reefs is of high grade, but the most third line of lode on the western side of the property is the richest of all. Mr Humphries, a Yankee engineer, has arrived to erect the machinery, and the battery is making rapid...
Mining News. HANNAN'S REWARD. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 28 May 1896
Mining News. (BY OUR MINING REPORTER.) HANNAN'S REWARD. The lode at the 200ft level of Hannan's Reward Mine has been penetrated about 4ft to 5ft by the crosscut, and is apparently a big body of stone, the drills being still in quarts and schist. The stone so far has averaged about a little better than loz per ton, but the richest ore in the upper levels is about 100ft south of the point at which the reef was intersected, and at tc.e 200ft level will probably be met with some dis. tance further south than at the level above. It is intended to drive south on the course of the lode as soon as the crosscut reaches the foot wall so as to get under the rich shoot. The lode at the 100ft level varies in width from 20ft to 40ft, and as is so often the case here, the richest ore is met with in the widest portions of the.reef. The thickest part of the formation in the mine is south of the crosscut, and a start will be made to drive for this as soon as possible.
HANNAN'S PROPRIETARY DEVELOPMENT COMPANY. FIND IN GOLDEN PIKE. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 28 May 1896
HANNAN'S PROPRIETARY DEVELOP-i MENT COMPANY. FIND IN GOLDEN PIKE. What is evidently the continuation of the Boulder line of lode has been struck in cross cutting at the 100ft level in the Golden Pike mine, one of the Hannan's Proprietary Development leases. The lode is wide and rich, showing good gold all through it, and careful surveys nude leave little room to doubt that this is the continuation of the Boulder line of lode. It occupies the position the line should fill, while the ore in every respect resembles the Boulder stone. The discovery is very important to the Proprietary Company, but is of much greater value to the Boulder, proving conclusively as it does the continuance of the main line through the whole mile of country held by the big mine. The find revolutionises all ideas of values and pretty clearly indicates that the lodes of the main mineral belt are continuous as was hoped by the sanguine mining men of the camp. This find indicates that the Hannans Proprietary Comp...
COOLGARDIE MINT. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 28 May 1896
COOLGARDIE MINT. This property, which was formerly known as the Royal Mint and Iron King, has been taken over by the manager for the English Company, Mr Harry Wilson, who will start crushing next Wednesday. The battery is ready, but it will occupy a few days cleaning up, filling the tanks, and the thousand and one things needed at the last minute in start ing a plant. There is an abundance of good ore and plenty of water available, and the mine promises to give a good account of it self. The battery consists of ten heads of stamps, and has been well erected, so that no trouble should arise in working it. A new shaft has been started some distance from the main workings to strike the continuation of the Bank of England lode, and also the phenomenally rich line of reef recently dis covered in that mine. The property is well situated, and the main reef, which has been worked for some two years, is rich and well opened up. The new manager of this property is put ting his shoulder to the...
Fatal Accident at Mount Margaret. MENZIES, May 22. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 28 May 1896
Fatal Accident at lMount Margaret. MENZIES, May 22. A serious accident has just been reported from Mount Margaret, 100 miles north-east of Menzies. On Tuesday evening Mrs Chap man, wife of the mining manager, was taking tea with a miner named Alek. McDonald in the kitchen excavated from the side of a hill. The kitchen roof was constructed evi dently of rotteh mulga on which had been piled the excavated debris. Without a moment's warning the roof collapsed, bury ing Mrs Chapman and McDonald under tons of earth. Mrs Chapman's husband had just gone out, having finished tea, and he raised an immediate alarm, which was responded to by a score of miners whose efforts proved wholly futile. The bodies were fearfully mangled when recovered. The funeral took place on Wednesday.
Suicide at Niagara. MENZIES, May 23. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 28 May 1896
Suicide at Niagara. MENSIEs, May 28. Another terrible occurrence is reported from Niagara. This morning a widow, who passed under the name of Johnson, was found dead in a tank of water. Having partially undressed, she secured a box and placed it against a tank, into which she got head first. The opening of the tank proved too small to admit the whole body, and the unfortunate creature was caught in a hole by the hips, the remainder of the body sprawling over the rim of the tank. In this position she lay perfectly helpless till death came. There is no suspicion of foul play, though the district is infested with scoundrels capable of any diabolical deed. The indications are that Johnson, who kept a wine saloon, had suicided. She had £35 cash in the house and a gold watch and chain. Johnson's real name was Waterhouse. She was formerly a stewardess on the intercolonial steamers, and later a boarding-house keeper at Manly Beach. Sydney. She had very recently gone to Niagara from Menzies,...
General Wires. PERTH, May 22. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 28 May 1896
General Wires. PERTH, May 22. The Commissioner of Crown Lands, on reading a reprint of the telegram from the Government Inspector of Stock at Coolgar die, that the station camels were found to be infected with the cattle tick, communica ted with the Government Veterinary Sur geon, whose report in reply to the query addressed to him is as follows:-" I have the honor to inform you that I have carefully read the paragraph referred to by you in your message this morning. In reply to the question whether camel tick is thle same as cattle tick in Queensland, I hasten to point out that it is by no means alike. Judging from the results of the experiments which I have made in the last twelve months there is no need to fear tick in the camel and dromedary. They have three distinct kinds of ticks. Hundreds are often found on one animal. The whole three may be found and all living peacably clustered in groups attached most firmly to their great common host. Some nine months ago, with a view to ...
COOLGARDIE NEWS. COOLGARDIE, May 20. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 28 May 1896
COOLGARDIE NEWS. (BY WIRE.) [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.1 COOLGARDIE, May 20. William Buchanan was charged at the Police Court, this morning, with having stolen a bicycle, valued at £30 on May 16, from outside the Great Western Hotel. The bicycle was the property of Arthur Cawood. On the application of the police the case was adjourned for eight days. There are 115 patients in the Government Hospital at the present time. The institution is still overcrowded despite a new ward having been erected quite recently, and it will be necessary to make further provision at an early date. A women's ward is at present being built to accommodate 15 patients. What is needed more than anything else is that a new convalescent ward should be con structed, and that the nursing staff, which is overworked, should be added to. James Keogh, who was well-known in Coolgardie as the cowboy, and whose escapade in riding a bullock on the recreation reserve will be remembered, died at half-past six' o'clock t...
Kurawah (Broad Arrow). May 22. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 28 May 1896
Kurawalh (Broad Arrow). [FROM OUR OWN CORREBPONDENT.1 May 22. Kurawah is fast becoming an important mining centre. Many of the mines compare favorably with any of the best known shows on the field. Almost every day news is brought in of fresh discoveries or fresh de velopments on mines already working. Not the least important of these is the William Pell and the William Pell North. On the latter splendid gold was struck yesterday at the 112ft level The stone shown me to-day equals anything I have yet seen in the district. Complications are arising already in con nection with the town allotments, through the want of a proper title, and a desire is expressed by all to have the land sale held as soon as possible. Buildings are going up on all sides, among those in course of erection is a hotel for Mr Murphy It will contain 26 rooms, including a billiard room, 14 bedrooms, and several parlours. ' When finished, it will be an orna ment to the place, and without doubt the best and largest...

Correspondence. -0--9--~ [The Editor does not hold himself respon sible for the opinions expressed by cor respondents.] THE RAILWAY STATION SITE. TO THE EDITOR. SIa,-H'ave the Municipal Council or the townsfolk at large any particular views as to where the site of the railway station ought to be? Mr Holmes, the manager of the West Australian Bank, and Mr Salmon, manager of the Bank of New South Wales, are both very keen that the station should be a good deal nearer the town than the site at present proposed. I am personally indifferent, but would assist them if the majority of the townspeople desired achange of site. You should let me know whether we should move in the matter in Perth or not.-I am, &c., ALEX. P. MATHESON. St George's Terrace, Perth, May 20.
KANOWNA NEWS. May 25. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 28 May 1896
KANOWNA NEWS. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) May 25. In matters mining we are steadily progres sing, and in a very short time we shall have at least three more batteries in full swing. The White Feather Main Reef Company are making good progress in erecting their battery. The 10-head of stampers are already in position, and last week their boiler arrived. This boiler is the largest of its kind in Westralia, weighing 114 tons without mountings and is 22ft long by 7ft 6in in diameter. There were no cranes on the rail way powerful enough to handle it. The jinker on which it was brought from Cool gardie had to be specially built for it. and took a team of 16 horses to draw the load. The boiler is made of heavy steel plates to stand a pressure of lOOlbs to the square inch, and is of the Lancashire type, made specially for using salt \nater. A feature of it is that a man can easily get into it for the purpose of cleaning. The steaming capacity of the . oiler is I0-horsepower nominaL The So...
MINING. THE BROWN HILL CRUSHING. 462 OZ. FROM 96 TONS. AVERAGE 4 OZS. 16 DWTS. 6 GRS. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 28 May 1896
M 1INING. THE BROWN HILL CRUSHING. 462 OZ. FROM 96 TONS. AVERAGE 4 OZS. 16 DWTS. 6 GRS. The manager of the Hannan's Brown Hill mine cabled the result of the first crushing on Thursday evening, as follows :-" Crushed 96 tons of 2,0001bs and cleaned up 462oz of smelted gold." On Friday the following fuller cable was despatched to the company's London office :-" The total amount crushed is 110 tons of 2,0001bs, all the ore being weighed. The mill was working 308 hours, and we extracted 462ozs of smelted gold from 96 tons; the difference is made up by the untreated ore and rich slimes." The result of the first crushing must be re garded as entirely satisfactory, considering the difficulties attending the starting of a mill of the kind in use in a place so far re moved from all mechanical conveniences. The average of the yield per ton was 4oz 16dwts 6grs, while the tailings contain only 3dwts per ton. As the average of the crush ing may be taken as a good deal less than the average value...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 28 May 1896
The present Lord Chancellor's family have been for two generations intimately connec ted with the press. Mr John Giffard, Lord Halsbury's grandfather, was for more than a generation proprietor, with full editorial control, of the Dublin Journal, a noted Irish paper of the last century and of the early part of the present century, which came into the hands of Mr Giffard from Faulkner, the publisher, and friend of Swift and Chester field. Again, Dr Stanley Lees G iffard, Lord Halsbury's father, was associated for many years with the London daily press. The Western Mad writes :-In our issue of May 2, last year, Mr Herbert Stoneham, of Stoneham & Messenger. told the readers of the Australian Afail how he was laughed at when he stood up in the Stock Exchange as the first jobber to deal in Westralian shares. Some remarkable developments have taken place since then, and now even the Stock Exchange is being enlarged in order to provide more room in the Westralian department. In West...
