HELPED TO DEFEND NORKE'S DRIFT. SUDDEN DEATH OF HERO WHO WON VICTORIA CROSS. ENJOYED FRIENDSHIP OF LORD CHELMSFORD AN GECILI RHODES. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 1 March 1913
HELPED TO DEFEND RORKE'S DRIFT. &nbsp; SUDDEN DEATH OF A HERO WHO WON VICTORIA CROSS &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; ENJOYED FRIENDSHIP OF LORD &nbsp; CHELMSFORD AND CECIL &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; RHODES &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Memories of one of the most thrill- ing episodes in the annals of the Brit- ish Army are recalled by the death of Private Frederick Hitch, who won the Victoria Cross by his heroism at Rorke's Drift during the Zulu War of 1879. Hitch died suddenly recently at his home in Cranbrook-road, Chiswick. Hitch was a private in the old 24th Regiment (now the South Wales Bor- derers), which in January, 1879, was stationed at Rorke's Drift. On the &nbsp; morning of the 22nd, Colonel Durn- ford was ordered to move up with all his command from Rorke's Drift to the camp at Isandlwana. This was an amazing blunder, for this left the post, a...
DONKEY AS A POLICEMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 1 March 1913
DONKEY AS A POLICEMAN. &nbsp; &nbsp; An intelligent donkey was commend- ed by the magistrate at West Ham Police Court recently. Giving evidence against Joseph New- man, a carrier, charged with being drunk while in charge of a donkey and barrow, Constable Mitchell said that the donkey, attached to a barrow, stopped outside the Plaistowe Police Station and would not go on till New- man was arrested. The witness, going out to see the cause of the stop, found Newman drunk. The magistrate fined Newman 5/ or five days, remarking, "I think the donkey ought to be commended for as- sisting the police." &nbsp; First Lady: "Mrs. Smith is too young to go shopping alone." Second lady: "Why is that?" First Lady: "She's liable to get excited and buy &nbsp; something." &nbsp; &nbsp; "Herbert, I promised you a bicycle it you passed your examination. What ever have you been doing all this time &nbsp; to fail so badly?" "I've been learn- ing to r...
AFGHANS IN COURT. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 1 March 1913
AFGHANS IN COURT At the sitting of the Coolgardie Local Court held on Monday, the 10th February, the case of Mahomet Omar v. Harim Allie came on for hearing before Mr. Troy, E.M. The plaintiff &nbsp; claimed £12/9/- and was represented by Mr. E. T. Williams, while the de- &nbsp; fendant counterclaimed for moneys &nbsp; &nbsp; paid. &nbsp; After hearing the evidence of the &nbsp; plaintiff and that of Mrs. Theresa McAuley, an amiable friend of plain- tiff''s, and of the defendant and his witnesses the E.M. dismissed both &nbsp; claim and counterclaim without ____ .
TWO CLASSES. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 1 March 1913
TWO CLASSES. Wherever you go you will find the world's masses &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Are ever divided in just these two classes; &nbsp; &nbsp; And strangely enough you will find, too, I ween, There is only one lifter to twenty who lean, In which class are you? Are you eas- ing the load Of overtaxed lifters who toil down the road &nbsp; Or, are you a leaner who lots others bear Your portion of worry and labor and care? ELLA WHEELER WILCOX. "What language does your new maid speak — broken English, isn't it?" asked the visitor. "Mostly broken &nbsp; &nbsp; ehina, I should say," was the reply of &nbsp; &nbsp; the long-suffering housewife.
The Lion Brewery. THE MEN WHO MADE IT. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 1 March 1913
The Lion Brewery. THE MEN WHO MADE IT. The West Australian Lion Brewing and Ice Company, Limited, is one of the big concerns of this field, but the brewery and its products are so well &nbsp; known in Coolgardie, and even sur- &nbsp; rounding districts that it will be more &nbsp; interesting to say something of those &nbsp; who built up and maintain so exten- &nbsp; sive an undertaking. There are a few &nbsp; houses in the Old Camp that sell other &nbsp; than Lion beer, but the enterprise of &nbsp; the founders of the local brewery has &nbsp; led to an hotel connection that gives &nbsp; them a big pull. &nbsp; &nbsp; Than Mr. Charles Vincent, the popu- lar managing director of the Lion &nbsp; Brewery and the owner of many hotels throughout the West Australian gold fields, there is possibly no man better known or more highly respected throughout the whole State of Western Australia...

THE CAMEL PADDOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 1 March 1913
THE CAMEL PADDOCK. Although, for some time past the camel paddock has attracted a con- siderable amount of attention there has not been as much prospecting work done as might have been expect- ed in the circumstances. Since the working of the old Union Jack, in the early days, more than one prospector has cast his eyes in their direction, but while the locality is about four miles only from the town, it has es- caped genuine attention, and, in fact, very little until recently. There are miners who still hold that pay ore exists at lower levels of the Union Jack, but the old workings are beyond the reach of the ordinary prospector on account of the water. During the past two or three years the Camel Paddock shows that have attracted most attention are the May Queen and the lease held by Frank Kayanagh and "Seotty" Livien on the north end of it. These have given fair average returns, and some rich patches have been found, but recently the run of gold was lost in the former and one of ...
KUNANALLING DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 1 March 1913
KUNANALLING DISTRICT. Last week, Messrs. Thomas and Dwyer, whose lease is on the north end of De Gracie's, near the 19 Mile peg on the Coolgardie to Kunanalling road, cleaned up at the Blue Bell battery a parcel of 60 tons for a yield of 52ozs. over the plates, or an average of 17 &nbsp; dwts. 8 grs. per ton. The amalgam was remarkably good, the total being 115 ozs. — 58ozs. from the boxes and 57ozs. off the plates. The stone making the tonnage was broken in sinking the main shaft, which is now down 40ft., and here the lode is 12ft. in width. It is a quartz lode with some schistose formations, underlies east, and has a slate footwall. The stone is very hard. This parcel makes 160, tons crushed from the same shaft for an average of over an ounce, the tailings having averaged 6½dwts. in addition. Customers speak highly of the treat- ment they obtain at the Blue Bell bat- tery, where the charge is 10/ a ton on parcels under 100 tons, but after de- ducting 2½ dwts. for treating ...
TNDAL'S MINE. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 1 March 1913
TINDAL'S MINE. As the annual general meeting of shareholders in Tindal's was held in &nbsp; Melbourne only yesterday afternoon, no information had come to hand at the time of writing as to the result. The object of the meeting was to con- firm minutes, to receive and adopt the balance sheet for the year ended Jan. 31st, 1913; elect directors and auditors to transact other business, and to au- thorise the directors to deal with for- feited shares. Interest centres more particularly in the election of the Board of Directors, and anyone aware that the new people control the shares must take it ior granted that the de sired change has taken place. The other important matter is the authori- sation to deal with the shares which fell in through non-payment of calls made in connection with the authorised addition to the company's capital, which was increased last year from £72,000 to £96,000. There is an impression here that Tindal 's may not exercise the whole of the six months' ex...
THE STATE BATTERY. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 1 March 1913
&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; THE STATE BATTERY. It is understood that the Coolgardie State battery will resume crushing either to-day or on Monday. After having been shut down since early in December. Several who have low &nbsp; grade shows have, so far, failed to &nbsp; break parcels, as they hold that send- ing such ore to these mills they are only working for the Government. At the same time, the bookings are satis- factory, and several rich parcels should go through. As booking continues during the run, no estimate has yet been formed of what the total will be, but it should be a good one. Man- ager Moyes and staff have been busy for some time cleaning out the dams and making other preparations for re-starting, and since the termination of the last run a large quantity of Government slimes have been cyanided.
Coolgardie Police Court. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 1 March 1913
Cooigardie Police Court. In the Coolgardie Police Court on Wednesdoy, before Messrs. Alfred Mercer and Lloyd, Pascoe, J.'s P., an interesting double case was heard, in which the parties in the limelight were Messrs. Thomas Tangye, generally known as the Mayor of the Three Mile, and Alfred Messenger. who is now prospecting in the vicinity of Tom's hen run. Over a fortnight ago a dispute arose between the two over a patch of alluvial ground, and it was then alleged that Messenger had dogged Tom out of a hole and placed him some yards &nbsp; away. On that occasion Messenger was fined. When the parties ap- peared iu court on Wednesday it was found that Tangye had charged Messenger with having used threaten- ing language, and Messenger charged &nbsp; Tom with having used threatening and abusive language. Both the beliigerants pleaded not guilty. &nbsp; &nbsp; After hearing the evidence, and as no witnesses were called by either side, the magistrates dismis...

PERSONAL The Postmaster- General (Mr. C. E. Frazer) will visit Coolgardie during the third week in April and then state his views to the electors. &nbsp; Mrs. "Jim" Elliott, late Victoria Hotel, has been holidaying at the coast whilst Mr. Elliott is now fully occu- pied with his brewery (late Langs- ford's) at Kalgoorlie. * * * &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Present absentees from Coolgardie &nbsp; include Mr. Strang, manager of the Western Australian Bank, and his sister, Miss Strang.

The Coolgardie Miner Published Weekly SATURDAY, MARCH 1, 1913 OURSELVES. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 1 March 1913
- The Coolgardie Miner Published Weekly SATURDAY, MARCH 1, 1913 OURSELVES. The position of any town of impor- tance that does not possess a news- paper is deplorably behind in this age of progress. Without an organ to deal with matters of local interest, be they great or small, any centre is seriously handicapped, and cannot expect that amount of publicity or attention to its wants that the position justifies. Coolgardie has felt this seriously for some time, and the neglect which the district has labored under has been a striking disadvantage to the commun- ity as a whole. The absence of a local newspaper indicates a loss of &nbsp; status, and it also means a lack of competition by other journals in cater- ing for the needs of the place. Fur- ther, it stands to reason that a big newspaper must deal with any ques- tion from a sense of population, and the management takes economic advan- tage of any district that has an in- dependent voice of its own. We are certainly convinc...
Coolgardie Amateur Swimming Club. SUCCESSFUL CARNIVAL. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 1 March 1913
Coolgardie Amateur Swimming Club. SUCCESSFUL CARNIVAL. A very successful swimming carni- val was held on Wednesday evening at the Municipal Baths in the presence of a large number of people. The events were numerous and interesting, &nbsp; the finishes in most cases being close and exciting. The teams' race, for which four teams competed, was the most exciting event of the evening, only a touch separating the first, second and third teams. In the Junior han- dicap a protest was lodged against E. Gregan for breaking his time by more than three seconds. The committee have upheld the protest and the race will now go to O. Smith and no second prize will be given. The committee are indebted to the following for do- nations and trophies: — Messrs. G. N. Clarke, Harry Levy, P. Rettig, A. Laphain, T. Higgins, Valgie O'Boda and Sergeant-Major Walsh. The fol- lowing were the officials: — Judges, Messrs. M. L. Reid, J. Briggs, L. Bru- ton; touch stewards, Messrs. M. Noo- nan and P. Mas...
THE PROSPECTORS' ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 1 March 1913
THE PROSPECTORS' ASSOCIA- TION. &nbsp; The Coolgardie Prospectors' and Leaseholders' Association has done &nbsp; some excellent work, not the least of which has been the affiliation of all similar bodies in the State, and the formation of an executive with its headquarters here. Whilst the asso- ciation has demonstrated its strength, &nbsp; strange to say, some underhand influ- ence has been at work, with the re- sult that a very small local band of those greedy of the good results achieved do not lend their moral or financial support to the Coolgardie branch. However, now that there are so many similar bodies, all affiliated, and the position is such a strong one, the malcontents are beginning to real- &nbsp; ise the weakness of their own atti- tude. There is a highly satisfactory outcome of the recent affiliation, and that is that new branches are being formed in different parts of the State, and these are applying for books of rules and stating the...
