She was a fine vessel, and was on the slips at Wellington for repairs, when an outbreak of fire nccurred in the fofward part of the vessel, almost immediately followed by an explosion.

The owner values the vessel at £1700. The insurance money was £750. Nothing is known as to the origin of the fire.

Mining News. HANNAN'S REWARD. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 13 February 1896
Mining News. (BY OUR MINING REPORTER.) HANYAN'S REWARD. This mine, which was originally known as laHannu's Hill, was one of the first leases takea up on the field and includes the six cre lease granted to Hannan for discovering the best alluvial find ever nuile in the colony, 'and without.knowing it the best reefing field lhe world has ever seen. The history of the mine is the same as of most other properties on the line, that is the outcroping quartz leaders or feeders of the main lode were first dis jgovered and extensively opened up before the presence of the main north and south Jade was dreamed of. In the Reward claim, 'which has had the advantage of being under the one management from the first all the work accomplished has been very thoroughly one. A series of shafts were sunk originally along the length of the leases and connected by crosscnts which at the 88ft level were run forth and south for a total distance of 1100ft. n the course of this work no less than 17 usrts rein...
HANNAN'S STAR. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 13 February 1896
HANNAN'S STAR. This mine is immediately south of the Boulder Mlain Reef, and although as yet the continuation of the main reef has not been picked up within its borders it is only a question of time for Aiss to be done. A lot of good work is being done to open up the property and already one fair fornmation has been picked up. It looks as if the main lode had dipped under as it came south and for this reason deep sinking is the order of the day on tthe mine.
BOULDER MAIN REEF. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 13 February 1896
BOULDIER + [AIN REEF. This mine has attracted a great deal of attention, owing to the fact that the contina ation of the Great )Boulder lode has beenI struck on the property within the past few months. The reef was met with in cross cutting cast at the 70ft. level, and its value is as high as in the big mine itself. The formation, which presents all the features of the Great Boulder lode, is 10ft. wide at the point at which it was intersected and the same average thickness was main tained right up to the bouldary of the Boulder. The drive south from the crosscut has been carried about 140ft, and the reef, which maintained its average width most of the distance, has narrowed down to about Mft or 6ft in the face. This, of coume, was not unexpectcd, as the whole of the lode for imations in this section of the field, and even in the big mine itself, make and contract at various points, although they maintain an average width of from 8ft to 10ft. Work is being energetically pushed on by ...

IVANHOE JUNCTION. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 13 February 1896
]VA~IHOE JUNCTION, Two shafts are being sunk on this mine with a view to cross-cutting for the reef at a depth. It is proposed to carry the workings down to a depth of 180ft before opening out as the alluvial deposit is very deep on the flat west of the Ivanhoe South Extaended. and it would be useless cross-cutting until scettled country is reached. The results achieved in these workings will be watched with interest, as they will be a good guide to the value of the western section of he belt.
