TERRIBLE DISASTER IN MOSCOW. LONDON, May 31, 7.30 a.m. A sad and awful calamity has marked the festivities that have been in progress in Moscow in connect;on .with the coro nation of the Czar. A feast was given outside the city to the peasants . of the the district. The attendance numbered no less than 400,000 persons, many of whom travelled from a considerable dis tance to be present. All went well until meal-time; when the majority madly rushed the booths, and large numbers were wedged. in the inarrow passages. The pressure was terrific, and hundreds were trampled under foot. There were several hollows in the pas sages. These became so many death traps, and were quickly filled with dead and injured persons, the victims being chiefly womeh and children. The at tendants were intdequate to deal with the rush, and the police and Cossacks were unavailable. : An' official return. that has been issued states that 1100 persons were killed in the: disaster and ,450 injured: The affair has ...
Mining News. HANNAN'S REWARD. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 4 June 1896
Mining News. (BY OUR MINING REPORTER.) HANNAN'S REWARD. The lower levels in IHaanan's Reward are opening up m ich better than was hoped. The lode has been struck at the 300ft level, and the crosscut is already six feet into the reef. So far the stone has averaged about 2oz per ton, much of the metal being con tained in the pyrites, although free gold shows very often in the stone. The lode appears to be very wide, no indicatioji of the wall having been met with, while the grade of the stone is higher than in the level above. At the 20C ft level a start has been made to drive south on the course of the reef, and although only eight or nine feet in from the crosscut, the stone is rapidly im proving in grade. The face on Monday gave a return of loz 16dwts by bulk assay, and the ore is growing better as the big body lying further south is approached. A lot of water is making at the bottom level, and it would be a good idea to continue the crosscut for at least 100ft east of the reef to ...
Block 45. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 4 June 1896
Block 45. Very rich stone has been struck at the 100ft level in Kelly's lode. The stone is wonderfully rich in coarse free gold and the reef continues to open out well. This is a parallel lode running west of the telluride on which the prospectors worked in the early days of the field. It is widening out as it is sunk on and promises to prove as valuable as the recent discovery. Some samples of the telluride ore were secured a few days ago by Mr A. J. McGeorge, who, in conjunction with Mr Erle Huntley, his associate, in the laboratory made careful wet assays or an analysis of the telluride contents of the stone. After separating the metal from the gangue they found that the component parts of the telluride were as follows :--Gold 42*6, tel lurium 54'1, silver 0'7, arsenic 1-1, iron 0'9, sulphur 0*4; total, 99"8. The small quantitieb of sulphur, arsenic and iron, were due to crystals of arsenopyrite which could not be separated in concentrating the stone. The analysis wan most carefu...
THE AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 4 June 1896
TRH AUSTRALIA. The lode at the 100ft level in this mine is opening up better than was hoped. The crosscut is 14ft into the reef, and the stone after careful tests is estimated to average from four to six ounces per ton This is the line of lode on which the Kalgurli is situated, and promises to become as famous as the Boulder, Lake View and Ivanhoe reefs; which are parallel lines situated on the west side of the Kalgurli lode. Both Mr Geo. Gray, the consulting engineer, and Capt. Oats, the general manager, are so pleased with the development that an engine shaft will be started at once and carried down to water level. A cyanide plant capable of treating 50 tons daily has been ordered for this property, and will be ready for working as soon as the shaft reaches water level.
AN INTERESTING EXPERIMENT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE KALGOORLIE "MINER." [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 4 June 1896
AN INTERESTING EXPERIMENT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE KALGOORLIE " MINER." Sfi,-For the information of the mining public, an easy and interesting test can be made with the blow-pipe for tellurium. A small piece when placed upon charcoal and acted upon for a short time with the oxidis ing flame of a blow-pipe will readily melt into a globule, giving off a beautiful, greenish blue flame, and a white sublimate of tellu rium oxide is formed on the charcoal round the bead. This sublimate will disappear, giving also a similar beautiful flame when treated by the reducing flame of a blow pipe. If the bead, which is now of a dark lead color, be placed upon a piecs of white porcelain in a drop of strong sulphuric acid and heated, it will give the bright carnation, color, characteristic of tellurium. If the bead be now further treated, with the oxidising flame on charcoal, the remainder of the tellurium can b:. expelled as oxide, and a bright malleable button of gold is left behind. Yours, etc., ART...
TELLURIDES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 4 June 1896
TELLURIDES. TO THE EDITOR. SIR.-Although the existence of tellutide ores in the Kalgoorlie goldfields has come upon most of the mining community as a surprise, and has no doubt marked an epoch in the history of Kalgoorlie, it may be interesting to know that telluride of gold and silver was known by us to exist on this field ten months ago, samples from an Eng lish Company's property having been found to contain it, but not until investigation resulting from the failure of an expert to disclose gold in the ore by panning. Tel luride of bismuth was discovered on the Coolgardie goldfield eighteen months ago by Mr Octavius Watkins, assayer, of Bayley street, Coolgardie. However, in spite of the valuable information that hi been given to the Kalgoorlie public by r scientific men in the recent issues of th' Press regarding. tellurium and tellurides of metals, that question asked at the be ning of the dis cussion. viz., "What is Telluride ?" has not been answered ; nor has anyone attempted...

General Cables. LONDON, May 29. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 4 June 1896
General Cables. LONDON, May 29. Five Maxim guns of the latest type are being manufactured, and will be shipped to Victoria in September. The congress now sitting at Aix-la Chapelle of miners' representatives from all parts of the world have discussed the advisability of urging the nationalisation of mines. The delegates argued that mineral wealth was the property of the State where it was found, and not of any private person or persons. There were, they contended, many other im portant reasons why mines should belong solely to the State, and a resoluticn was carried demanding their nationalisation. LONDON, May 31. The United States, in view of pos sible hostilities in the near future in connection wi 'h the Cuban trouble, en tred into negotiations recently for the purchase of two ironclads at Genoa, but while their agents were haggling with the owners over the price, they were suddenly forestalled by representatives of Spain, who bought both the vessels.
