Free Trade and Protection. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 20 February 1896

Free Trade and Prctection. A QUESTION that before Iollg must take a prominent position ill West Aiustra lian politics is the revision of the tariff rate:s on most imported articles, including manyu even of the necessaries of life. As these duties full very heavily oil the mining population who receive no alternative protection, their injustice should appeal more strongly to them than to perhaps any other section of the eoimnlnnlity. The Case against protection is one that lmay be viewed, • however, riot in it parochial spirit, but in the broadest seuse. New South Wales after a 'trial decided at the end of last year to abandon her high tariff list, and Sydney has been since the beginuing of the year one nof the freest ports of the world. The protective duties of Victoria have also been re duced, though not to the sanme sweeping extent as in the Mother Colony. The fact is, the people of the East are beginning to realise that cus toms duties on imports. breed mono polies. 'One section ...

Geological Formations of Kalgoorlie. OFFICIAL REPORT BY MR S. GOETZEL, ASSISTANT GOVERNMENT GEOLOGIST. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 20 February 1896

Geological Formations of Kalgoorlie. OFFICIAL REPORT BY MR S;. GOBTZEL, ASSISTANT GOVERN MEXT GEOLOGIST. The auriferous deposits in the surrcund ings of Kalgoorlie. considered systematically and also practically, may be classed as two distinct types, although they are of a similar and probably contemplOneous origin. Tl:e representatives of these types are respec tively the Hannan's Hill.Maritaua series and the CGreat.Itouhler-Brown Hill series. Both series of ore deposits appear in conjunctiorn with eruptive ales or dyken. The contents of the branch and lateral fissures. as well as those portions of the dykes which have become fracturedl and have served in con junction with these branch and lateral tis sums as solfatara and thermalvents, are highly auriferous. The difference in both series of gold deposits lies in, and is chiefly caused by, the differentcountry foru:aticn in which they occur. The auriferous lode material in the Great Boulder-Brown Hill series of lodes consists, besi...

Last year was the best ever known for British investments in the Australian Colo nies, no less than 52;i Australian Companies. with a total capital of £53A,795,4394, being registered in London during the 12 months. The bulk of the companies were formed to work West Australian minling properties, no8 less than 432 Companies, with a nominal capital of £42,749t.194, being registered to work properties in this colony. Commendable liromptitude has been shown by the Directoir of the Cassidy's Hill (Kal goorlie) Gold Mines in bringing before the shareholders the latest information regarding the property, as the meeting cannot he held before March. From the circular published (states the "' Financial Times") it appears that a very decided change has come over the prospects of the Company, which was undoubtedly regarded in many quarters at the time as a mere "prospecltus" mine. In the middle of November, however, it was announced by the management that the Hanuan's lode has bee...
