Balagundi, Past and Present. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 4 June 1896

Balaguadi, Past and r resent. -,--- (BY AN OCCASIONAL CONTRIBUTOR.) Although we read frequently the mining news from Balagundi, yet many of us are un aware of the exact position of the district. If a map be taken and a line drawn from Kalgoorlie to Kanowna, from Kanowna to Bulong,. and back again to Kalgoorlie, a triangle shall be described, within which lies the Balagundi district. This flourishing mining district which 4s daily attracting more attention from great capitalists was first discovered at the opening of 1895. The first prospectors were Mr O'Neil and party, who first found gold on the main line ?of reef on New Year's Day, which naturally suggested to them the name of The Gift. Mr O'Neil and party took up 36 acres on the main line. The prospectors after having sunk three 50ft shafts, disposed of the pro perty to a French syndicate, who have since floated the property in Paris for some mil lions of francs, and re-christened the pro perty The Paris Gift. The Paris Gift main...

The Storyteller. AN ENCOUNTER WITH PIRATES. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 4 June 1896

The Storyteller. AN ENCOUNTER WITH PIRATES. Our steamer had just cleared Singapore. My duty in the engine room was done, and I was sitting with the mate on the bridge watching the downward sweep of the tropic dusk. 'It puts me in mind of a theatre sunset," he was saying; "they always go by the run. And that was a pretty theatrical bit you had in the engine room," he said to my chief, who had joined us. We had found all the nuts but one off the connecting rod head ; had another half-turn been made our engines would have been a scrap heap. "Only once had it happened before," said my chief, "and there was a grand tableau, as you call it, but not in the engine room. Our steamer and three wall-eyed junks were the actors. It was up there," jerking his head northwards. "There was nothing but a thousand odd miles of water and a dusting of islands between us and Hong Kong." The mate held a lighted match to the chiefs pipe, and set him drifting on with the current of his yarn. " You see it wa...

KANOWNA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT. Monday, June 1. Dick Worland is one of the best known of our citizens, and as he has made up his mind to "get out back " a number of his friends deemed it a fitting opportunity to give him a send-off. The send-off took place at Wyatt's Oxford Saloon on Tuesday even ing last, when Mrs Wyatt laid a splendid dinner for the assembled guests, the tables being very tastefully decorated. Mr Wad don was voted to the chair. The Chairman gave the first toast, "Our Guest," in a eulogistic speech. The Chairman was sup ported in the nice things said about Dick by Messrs Donnellan, Reddan, Cole, Nicol, and others. Mr Worland, in ieply, said he was pleased to see so many old faces. He had been a long time on the Feather, and he felt sorry to sever his connection with so many friends. He hoped, however, that it would not be for long. The other toasts proposed were, " The town of Kanowna," proposed by Mr Rankin and responded to ty Mr Don nellan, and "The Ladies,...

TELEGRAPHIC. PERTH, May 27. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 4 June 1896

TELEGRAPH IC. PERTH, May 27. From time to time complaints have been made regarding the packs of dogs which infest the aboriginal encamp ment on the outskirts of the city. The animals live in a half wild condition, having generally to provide for them selves. Necessarily they do consider able damage to property in the neigh borhood of the owners' camps, and have become bold enough to even attack human beings. Two instances of the latter occurred yesterday. At about yD o'clock in the morning, a little girl named Rose Turner, 7 years of age, was walking in Fitzgerald-street in the neighborhood of the Toorak estate, North Perth, when she was attacked bya number of dogs belonging to the aboriginals camped on the estate. The animals worried the little girl severely, and inflicted serious injuries upon her legs and arms. She would probably have been killed but for the fact that a man named B. Pye noticed the occur rence and quickly drove the dogs off. The little girl was removed to the hos...

Sunday in New York. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 11 June 1896

Sunday in New York. April 5 was the first Sunday (says Dalsiel's New York correspondent) on which the new liquor law, called the laines Bill, was fully enforced. Under its provisions no restaurant keeper is allowed to serve wine with dinner, and every saloon and restaurant, except hotels, is required to close from Saturday midnight -until five o'clock on Monday morning. Nj, woman at all is allowed to serve liquor, and two waitresses in a Dutch beer saloon were arrested on Saturday simply for serving customers with beer, there being no question raised as to the respectability of the girls. In private clubs it is forbidden that drinks shall be served to members on Sundays, either with or without meals. A person is forbidden to offer liquor in his own home to visitors, and a police officer is empowered to invade a private residence if he suspects that others than the aetual members of the family are drinking wine at dinner.. The room where the liquors are kept at hotels must be open to...

The Storyteller. A GOLDEN EASTER EGG. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 11 June 1896

The Storyteller: SA GOLDEN EASTER EGG. (By L. J. MILK in St. Paul's.) Luckless Tom, as the other miners called him, sat disconsolately at the mouth of his drive. He was quite alone. It was Good Friday, and the miners had almost all knocked off work : some to celebrate the day with a carouse, a few to take a rest until Monday, and two or three to tramp into Bendigq-as Sandhurst was then called--to the neaibst Roman Catholic chapel. Tom's drive was in a deserted part of the campi-a part that luckier men than he had given up months before. And he was almost always alone. His ill-luck was proverbial, and no miner would mate with him. But when the camp was in its full blast of excited work, Tom could hear the ring of the picks, the qwish of ithe shovels, and now and again the loud shriek of gunpowder as some rich lead was blasted. Tom was the incarnation of generosity, and he took great comfort out of the cheerful sounds of his luckier fellows' industry. It was company for him--almost al...
