The following interesting article ap peared in London ' Truth ' of tlie 21st ult.:— With tlie Kaffir Circus, the matket for West Australian gold shares is also fast recovering from last week's scare. 1 There never was any real fear of com-, pletc' collapse, at all events in the shares controlled by the strong groups of the ^W.esf 'Australian Goldfields, or of the 'West Australian Exploring and Fin ance Companies. After the panic set in on Saturday, November 9, one of tlie leading West Australian financiers had' ? * by Monday morning £200,000 cash placed at his disposal by friends and 'connections, for the purpose of acquiring -shares iii substantial companies at any thing like that day's level, but it was .: impossible to buy at anything near::-v^ those quotations, which were found to . : :; have., been quite nominal.

MORE MAGISTRATES. REQUIRED. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Miner — 31 December 1895
MORE MAGISTRATES RE QUIRED. There is only one Justice of the Peace in Coolgardie, and as a result .almost every case before the Court has to be remanded. The greatest inconveni ence is caused, and cases are piling up at an alarming rate. The Attorney General has beeu communicated with, but he has taken no notice of the request that he should deal with the matter. It is grossly unfair that men charged with offences should be confined day after day, till an extra J.P. turns up.
