Dr Barber was the first witness called, and he deposed that on examining the body he found both legs fractured and an extensive oompound fracture of the skull. The fall down the shaft was sufficient to cause these injuries. Sydney Frederick Goddard, mining engi neer and manager of Cassidy's Hill G.M. Co., Ltd., deposed that he knew the deceased who had been engaged for five or six months on the mine as a miner. On 20th inst deceased was fixing in chains at the mouth of the main shaft. He was working with his brother 4ft or 5ft from the s...
Smithfield. May 22. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 28 May 1896
Smithfield. [FRaoM OUR OWN CORREBPONDENT.] May 22. Immediately east of Smithfield lies a zone of totally different country of some miles in width and extending north and south. It is a porphyritic formation in some places closely resembling granite in this country, and some two miles east is situated the King of the West mine. It is owned by a strong syndicate, and is being opened up under the able management of Mr Mitchell. There is a massive quartz reef running a great distance in a north and south direction right through their numerous leases. It underlies to the east, and is sunk on to a depth of over a hundred feet, and at that depth splendid gold was met with in a dark colored stone highly charged with iron. The. peculiar feature of this reef is that it is a contact one, the country on one side being porphyry and on the other side talcose slate, although the country to the east is again porphyritlo. Mr Mitchell is laying his plans for athorough development of this mine, and in...
THE TRANSVAAL CRISIS. LONDON, June 1. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 4 June 1896
THE TRANSVAAL CRISIS. LONDON, June 1. The additional clemency extended by the Transvaal to the Rand Reformers convicted of high treason, all of whom except the leaders and two who declined to petition for a mitigation of their sentences have been released, has occasioned great rejoicing throughout South Africa, where it is generally regarded as a pledge of racial re-union. As the result of this amicable feeling the value of the Rand stocks have risen 50 per cent. A decided change has come over the residents of the Rand in their attitude towards the Government, and President Kruger has been loudly cheered. General Joubert and Dr Leyds, in the interests of the Transvaal, are re ported to be consulting the Orange Free State authorities for the uniform arming of the forces of both republics. President Kruger, it is also stated, is calling for tenders for 5,000 rifles and 10,000,000 cartridges. The Transvaal Government has sent officers to the frontier to verify Sir Hercules Robinson's s...
THE OXFORD UNIVERSITY MATCH. LONDON, June 2, 5.50 a.m. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 4 June 1896
THE OXFORD UNIVERSITY MATCH. LONDON, June 2, 5.50 a.m. There was a very large attendance at Oxford yesterday to witness the first day's play of the University match. The weather was perfect, and the wicket in very good order. The University team was as follows -G. R. Bardswell, F. N. E. Cunliffe, P. F. Warner, G. O. Smith, H. R. Foster, G. J. Mordaunt, H. D. G. Leveson-Gower, Warddey, R. P. Lewis, J. C. Hartley, and G. B. Raikes. Australia lost the toss, and Oxford proceeded to bat. Warner and Smith were the first in, and they faced the bowling of Jones and Giffen. Smith was very soon bowled by the S.A. champion, and Warner and Mor daunt followed in quick succession, Jones securing both of these batsmen, and three wickets were down for 13 runs. Foster and Raikes carried the score to 31, when the latter was caught by Giffen off Jones. Foster' was joined by Leveson-Gower, and both men played very cautiously for a.time. They afterwards hit freely, and together added 115 to the score wh...
THE MOSCOW DISASTER. LONDON, June 1, 6.30 a.m. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 4 June 1896
THE MOSCOW DISASTER. LONDON, June 1, 6.30 a.m. Further particulars have been received regarding the terrible calamity that marked the festivities in Moscow in con nection with the coronation of the Czar. The disaster appears to have been of a much more serious character than was at first reported. The dreadful affair occurred on Saturday on the Hodynesky Square, where a popular fete had been announced to be held. Free amuse ments were to have been provided, and bundles of food distribted as souvenirs of the coronation. Crowds- chiefly peasants-begali to arrive some days previous to the fite day, and an immense number remained on the square all Friday night. It is estimated that altogether 400,000 persons were present, many of them travelling from considerable distances. There were but a few police in attendance. A general feeling prevailed amongst the people present that owing to the vast number who put in appearance there would not be sufficient gifts for all, and a false alarm tha...

The Western Argus. PUBLISHED EVERY THURSDAY. THURSDAY, JUNE 4, 1896. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 4 June 1896
PUBLISHED EVERY THURSDAY. THURSDAY, JUNE 4, 1896. TnE fresh attempt about to be made to fill up the blank spaces in the map of Australia will, it is hoped, form the last chapter in the long and adventurous history of Australian exploration. The last expedition into the interior for this purpose was fitted out at the expense of Sir Thomas Elder, and led by Mr David Lindsay. A large extent of unknown country was traversed by the party, who thus did good work. The cost of the expedition now about starting, which will amount to about £5,000, will be borne by Mr Albert Calvert, whose name is well known in connection with these fields. It has been organised with a geographical and scientific and not a commercial object. The intention is to explore all those parts of West Australia and the Northern Territory left untouched by the Elder expedition. The whole party will consist of six white men and one Afghan. They will leave from Cue with 19 or 20 camels, or only about half the number taken...

Legislative Reforms. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 4 June 1896
Legislative Reforms. PA.LIAMENT will meet next Tuesday unless in the meantime it be further prorogued by proclamation. A rumor has been current that the latter contin gency is not improbable owing to the various departments being much behind in their work through the press of busi ness and the necessary reports, &c., being not ready for presentation. We trust that such a course will not be necessary as the country badly needs legislative reforms and can ill afford further delay. West Australia is the most backward of all the colonies of Australasia as regards its legislative and administrative affairs, and many years of Parliamentary work even under the most favorable conditions will scar cely suffice to as much as partly clean the Governmental Augean stables of this colony. There are almost innumerable questions awaiting immediate settle ment. The advisableness of taking immediate steps to provide all the fields with an adequate water supply deserves the instant attention o...

Kalgoorlie Requirements. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 4 June 1896
Kalgoorlie Requirements. THE numerous splendid developments that particularly of late have taken place in the mines of this district, and the magnificent prospect most of them present of rich returns in the near future, has had the effect of promoting increased activity each week amongst owners and managers of mines with a view of reaping a golden reward as early as possible. All this has affected Kal goorlie in a very marked manner, and the town has been advancing during the past couple of months at a marvellously rapid rate. The population has been growing weekly by hundreds, and there are now in the town and its vicinity scores of buildings in course of con struction. The noise of the ham mer may be heard continually all day long, and the s pply of builders and carpenters falls short of the demand. As the Government have completely failed to keep pace with the amazing progress of Kalgoorlie, it is not surprising that the wants of the residents should increase and that they should...

President Kruger. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 4 June 1896
President Kruger. SINCE Dr Jameson's now famous raid into the territory of the Transvaal Re public, bitter differences of opinion have existed in the British Isles as to the rights and the wrongs of the dispute between the Uitlanders and the Boers. The latter have many warm friends, particularly amongst the Liberals, one of the staunchest of these being Mr Labouchere, who, in Parliament and in the columns of Truth, does yeoman service for the Transvaal Republic against the Scuth African Chartered Company. The most prominent jour nalist on the other side is Mr Stead, who, in an interesting character sketch of President Kruger in the April issue of the Review of Reviews, draws atten tion to the strange anomaly by which Liberals support the actions of one of the most reactionary rulers to be found in the whole world to-day. Mr Labou chere, for instance, is a Radical of Radicals, swearing *by all the popular nostrums of advanced, democracy, and abominating territorial aristocracy. He is...
