Recreation Reserve Proposed Leasing Illegal [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 29 March 1913
Recreation Reserve Proposed Leasing Illegal At the meeting of the Municipal Cou cil on Thursday evening, a com munication was received from Messrs Keenan and Randall, giving an opin ion on the Council's question as to whether power existed to lease the Recreation Reserve. In the ' opinton it is first point ed out that the reserve was invested in the Council by a special Act on trust, for recreation purposes. It is explained that a Couneil may lease any recreation reserves that in its op- ! inion are no longer required for that I provided they are not subject to any * trust. The 'opinion' then concludes I v 'In this case the land is subject to [ a trust only for the purposes of a re- ' creation reserve. .We, therefore, can- ' not see that the Council has power to ' lease the property without the con sent of the Crown which would have to be by an amending Aet.' 1 In a discussion that followed several - councillors expressed the opinion that j they could lease the ground to any one who...

PINE HILLS. i The tributers on the Pine Hills. haver booked 200 tons for treatment and!, anticipate a ^.payable result. -,) - j Tne parcel of stone that was put through from the Diemel's Find was not quite correctly reported in our last issue, /the' exact figures being 45 tons for 58ozs. 2dwts. This « is pro bably too poor to pay under existing conditions,. The. mill at Mt. Jackson is now run aing on a parcel from the Standard mine at Marda, and a high yield is an ticipated from th'e 70 tons being mill ed. To date this lease has produced very high yields. In order to get to Canada, his na tive land^ before the season gets too eold, Mr. J. Garrett sold the Standard to Messrs. C. Don and the Atkiuson Bros. . for £20, and the lucky pur chasers have been fortunate 'enough -to strike some high grade rock. ' After the' mill at Mt.

A SPORTING YARN FROM AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 29 March 1913
A SPORTING YARN FROM &nbsp; AMERICA. Some enthusiasts, always in search of a new kind of thirst quencher, have discovered that an imported liquor called "Brummerlunner" arouses strange feelings that are said to be indescribable. It comes from Den- mark, and is said to be made of aged Hollands gin with crushed caraway seeds. One of the guests at Browne's Chop House, who drank a whole bot- tle and went to bed, threw all his clothes out of the window, and his &nbsp; valise, including the pillows and mat-, tresses. Then he rushed out in Broad- way imbued with the idea that he was a cab horse. His friends ran after him, and only succeeded in calming him down by putting a rope halter around the victim's neck, and tying him up for the night in a stable near by, where they left him with a bucket of cold water and a sack of oats.

Our Eastern Letter. Sydney, March 11th, 1913. Mr. McGowan. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 29 March 1913
Our Eastern Letter. &nbsp; &nbsp; Sydney, March 11th, 1913. Mr. McGowan. The storm of angry resentment which fell upon the devoted head of the Premier because he called on the citizens to do all in their power to restore the supply of' gas, and pro- mised ample police protection to any who would assist, has proved the " last &nbsp; straw" which has broken the back of his endurance. He now announces &nbsp; that he will retire from the Ministry at the end of the present Parliament. According to one report, this decision is subject to the approval of the party. According to another, it is de- finite and final, and was accompanied by a definite undertaking that he would never again accept a Ministerial portfolio. Whichever may be nearer the truth, the ruling principles are pretty obvious. Mr. McGowan is one of the best men in the party, because he still cherishes some remains of con- science. His conscience permitted him to sign the ironclad pledge. But i...
The Cost of Water. VIEWS OF FIFTEEN YEARS AGO. WATER AT 3/6 PER ONE THOUSAND GALLONS. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 29 March 1913
The Cost of Water. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; — o — &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; VIEWS OF FIFTEEN YEARS AGO. WATER AT 3/6 PER ONE &nbsp; THOUSAND GALLONS. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Reference is frequently made to the early predcition of Sir John Forrest and the late Mr. C. Y. O'Connor, Engineer-in-Chief, that Scheme water would be supplied to the fields at 3/6 per 1,000 gallons. In some instances, this is done, but much cheaper rates are charged in others. In connection with the mining industry, there is a grow- ing demand for cheaper water to as- &nbsp; sist in developing low grade shows, and an interview with Mr. O'Connor, which the "Coolgardie Pioneer" pub- &nbsp; &nbsp; lished in March, 1898, provides inter- &nbsp; esting reading, in view of the present discussion. In that interview, the late Engineer-in-Chief says: — &nbsp; "I have seen it stated re...
ALCOHOL AS FOOD. A BRITISH MEDICAL [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 29 March 1913
ALCOHOL AS FOOD. A BRITISH MEDICAL OPINION. Lecturing at the Conservative Hall, Uxbridge (England), on the 20th November, Dr. Thomas Dutton, M.R.C.P., said it had been argued that alcohol was a poison. How the people who entertained that idea came to their conclusions he could not conceive. He hoped to prove to his audience that alcohol was a food. At all events, if it were not a food, it certainly acted in a similar manner. If one took moderate doses of alcohol it was con- sumed in the body. It was oxidised like sugar, and went to make heat and increased energy. That had been con - clusively proved by a permanent com- mittee in America, called the Ameri- can Committee on the Liquor Pro- blem, and they came to the conclusion, not as a result of scientific investiga- tion lasting a day or a week, but years. Sir Lander Brunton, an im- partial scientific man, had also assert- ed that alcohol acted in a similar man- ner to sugar. The lecturer went on to cite the opinions of other great ...
Parson McKnock's Advice. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 29 March 1913
Parson McKnock's Advice. __________ &nbsp; &nbsp; Good, honest Parson John McKnock, Had long observed, with grief, his flock, &nbsp; Were getting fond, from day to day, Of mixing whisky with their clay. To cure this ill, he thought it right Some admonition to indite, Which from the pulpit he might lance, Against this horrid sin's advance. &nbsp; Now John himself liked whisky toddy As well as any other body ; &nbsp; So he might prudently beware, And do his censuring with care ; Lest, while another's faults were shown, &nbsp; He indirectly whipped his own. But every fear and danger scorning, He thus spoke out one Sunday morn- &nbsp; ing:— "My dearest brethren, I would fain &nbsp; Save ye and my ainsel' the pain Of preaching to ye o' a sin That maist of ye hae tumbled in. And that's in very truth nae less— It's sottish, wicked drunkenness. I preach nae, friends, against the use, But solely 'gainst the gross abuse Of rich g...
TO A SNAKE AT MY CAMP. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 29 March 1913
TO A SNAKE AT MY CAMP. You damned infernal crawling reptile, Why haunt you so my camp in this style; &nbsp; You 've got the bush all free to roam, For God's sake seek another home. My visitors you put to flight, They shake and quake with fear and fright; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; For you all night I lie and listen, And strain my eyes to catch your's glisten. &nbsp; &nbsp; Accursed vile descendant lineal Of tempter of our mother primal; I pause and wonder what you were, 'Ere Eve, all curious, took the snare. 'Ere yet you'd earned the just damna- tion, &nbsp; &nbsp; Most loathesome thing in all creation, I wonder in what stately mien You woo'd to ruin Adam 's queen. Small wonder that the feud's eternal, Twixt man and you, you thing infer- nal; &nbsp; &nbsp; The fault's with you that man's a toiler, &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; You curst...

FOOTBALL. COOLGARDIE CLUB CONTINUES, j The annual meeting of members of - the Coolgardie jFootball Club was held ' at the Australia Hotel on Wednesday evening, March 26, when Mr. H. M. ? Tardif was voted to the chair. The secretary (^Mr. E. Linkson) read the minutes of the previous annual meeting and pointed out that, owing to the neglect of his predecessor in office, several small accounts had been left unpaid, and he thought that, as soon as funds came in, these amounts should be paid. He also explained that, last season, Mr. Gordon Cameron had been secretary of the Association, but when called away to Sydney, he j had handed the books over to Mr. 1 Michell, who had called, a meeting of the Association, . which their delegates had attended. It was the opinion of those present at the meeting that the Association should be (re-formed, but nothing definite was done pending word as to the formation of the three district clubs. ? The Association, how ever, was practically in existence,...
