A meeting of the executive of the Mineowners' Association, Mr George Grey, president, being in the chair, was   held to-day, when it was decided to send out a circular giving the objects of the society.

VICTORIA. A DISAPPOINTED LOVER. MELBOURNE, May 26. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 28 May 1896

VICTORIA. A DISAPPOINTED LOVER. MELBOURNE, May 26. Harry Burton, aged 30 years, made a most determined attempt at suicide at Brighton last evening. He was found on the beach with a large gash in his throat and a razor by his side. When Constable Mills approached he jumped up and rushed into the sea waist deep. The constable brought him out, and Burton assaulted him for interfering. It appears to be a case of unrequited love. Burton had made an appointment with a young lady, but the latter did nct keep the ap pointment.

FATAL ACCIDENT AT CASSIDY'S HILL. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 28 May 1896

FATAL ACCIDENT AT CASSIDY'S HILL. On Wednesday morning a sad accident hap- pened to one of the men employed at the Cassidy Hill mine, whereby he lost his life in a frightfully sudden manner. It seems that two brothers, Frank and Charles Brady, were engaged in adjusting the necessary fit- tings for the cage at the mouth of the main shaft, and a temporary platform had been erected a few feet down the shaft for this purpose. The shaft is timbered with round timber, and the planks of the platform were inserted between the crevices of the timber on each side of the shaft. Frank Brady was on Wednesday morning, at about 11 o'clock, working on the platform, while his brother was on top of the shaft. The latter had occasion to go to the engine-house for some tools, and it was during his absence that the accident occurred. It is surmised that Brady in reaching for a piece of iron work which was overhead shifted the plat- form out of position, and that the structure collapsed. Charles Brady re...

CABLEGRAMS. LONDON, May 25. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 28 May 1896

CAB LEG RAMS. LONDoN, May 25. The King of Swaziland, a young man only 18 years of age, a couple of days ago shot six of his servants. When asked the reason for his action, he ex plained that le wanted rifle practice.

The Kalgoorlie-Menzies Railway. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 28 May 1896

The Kalgoorlie-Menzies Railway. WE have the best authority for stating that in the opinion of the one member of the Ministry, who has examined fully the evidence in the possession of the Government as to the merits of the rival routes for the Menlzies railway, the evidence most distinctly favors the direct route from Kalgoorlie. This is only as all unprejudiced persons ac quainted 'with the facts expected, and the advocates of the Kalgoorlie route have no fear that it will be the one eventually followed, providing that the details of the three routes are fully before the House, and that the mem bers votes be not cast with a view of furthering the interests of any particular town, but of constructing the line along the route that will best serve the largest number of people. The opponents of the line still persist in grossly mis representing the true state of affairs. They not only have produced maps inm correctly showing the proposed line from Kalgoorlie, but the weekly edition of t...

THE OROTAVA. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 28 May 1896

THE OROTAVA. One of the Brown Hill-Crcesus group of lodes has been struck in the Orotava mine in crosscutting at the 100ft level. The Orotava is one of the mines of the Hannan's Proprietary Development Company, and the stone now being raised from the crosscut is very rich while the formation is wide. It appears to be one of the big lodes being worked in the Brown Hill-Croesus group of mines and is so important a find that one of the big cyanide plants capable of treating 50 tons per day will be placed on this block. Both the chairman of directors, Mr Herbert Moir, and the consulting engineer, Mr George Gray, are very pleased with the developments.
