The Brisbane River Disaster. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 20 February 1896

The Brisbane River Disaster. Our telegraphic news records one of those appalling disasters that period- ically startle the public. A crowded passenger steamer on the Brisbane River is reported to have been cut in two through being driven by the force of the current on a steamer's anchor chain. The number of lives lost cannot be defi- nately ascertained, but according to the latest estimate 40 persons have been drowned. In more ways than one the disaster was attributable to the flooded state of the river. Some years ago the Victoria bridge, which connects Bris-   bane with South Brisbane was carried away by the force of the current during a flood in the river. The authorities, believiing that the struc- ture since erected was endangered a couple of days ago, stopped all traffic over it, and that was the reason why the steamer that was wrecked was carrying passengers across the   river. Unfortunately, the desire of the authorities to avoid one disaster was in...

Terrible Disaster at Brisbane. _________ A PASSENGER STEAMER CUT IN TWO. FORTY LIVES LOST. THRILLING INCIDENTS.   A FIREMAN'S NARRATIVE. [By TELEGRAPH.] BRISBANE, February 14. A terrible accident occurred on the river a short distance below the Vic- toria Bridge, about five minutes past five o'clock yesterday afternoon. All the traffic having been stopped on the bridge owing to fears being entertained as to its safety in consequence of the river being flooded, a small steamer, the Pearl left the Queen's Wharf, South Brisbane. The vessel carried a large complement of passengers. Accounts vary as to the precise number, but it is thought there were between 80 and 100 persons on board. The flood waters were at the time running fairly strong, but not strong enough to interfere greatly with the steamer's journey across. The Pearl steamed down the river a short distance in order to pass between the steamer Normanby and the Government steamer Lucinda. The Pearl came foul of the...

Telegraphic. WEST AUSTRALIA. FREIGHTS ON THE KALGOOR LIE-FREMANTLE LINE. AN IMPORTANT STATEMENT. PERaTH, February 25. Mr John Davis, General Traffic Manager, was interviewed yesterday with reference to the srggestions put forward for the cheap carriage of ore from the goldfields to Fremantle. As to the contention that ore might be car Sried as coal is in America, at a rate of five-eights of a cent per mile per ton, or 8s. 6d. per ton between Kalgoorlie and Fremantle, Mr Davis stated that it would be impossible to do this. The ordinary rate from Kal goorlie to Fremantle would instead be 198 per ton. It would not be possible to use for the carriage of ore the ordinary tracks which returned from the fields empty, as ore trucks would require to be iron or bevelled with iron. The only conditions under which a material reduction of the rate of carriage could be made were if heavier rails and heavier engines were used, making it possible to carry twice as heavy a load as under present circ...

Company was held at Adelcide on February 3. to consider the question of reconstructing the company, winding it ,up voluntarily, and appointing Mr J. Wyles liquidator. There was a fair attendance, andi Mr T. R. Bright, who presided, stated that the new scheme, which would cost only from £20 to £80, was believed to be the best in the interests of the shareholders. The nmanagement of the pro perty had been taken at a nominal sum by Mr It.. D. Thompson, the manager, and the sum which would come by the reconstruction would go a long way to develop the mine. Something had been said about the sale of the mine in London. but the negotiations had led to nothing. The whole of the old property would be vested in the new.

Great Britain and the United States. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 27 February 1896

Great Britain and the United States. E:cLIsH speaking people all over the world must regard with considerable satisfaction the signs recently appearing indicative of the growth of a more friendly feeling than has heretofore existed between the United States and Great Britain. The suggested reference of all future differences between the two countries to arbitration has received the support of many of the leaders'of thought in the two countries as well as such a great power as the "Times " and other influential newspapers.. For many years lovers of peace have looked forward to both nations arriving at some such agreement, but the idea has never been brought as piominently to the fore as of late, and it may now be regarded as possessing a possibility of accom plishmuent in the near future. The, people of the United States may be truly described as the children of the British Isles. They speak the 'same language, and still possess many of the cliaiacteristics of residents of theMother'...

The Proposed Roads Board. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 27 February 1896

The Propcsed Roads Board. W .AT has become of the proposed Roads Board? About the middle of December a public meeting was held in Kalgoorlie, at which it was unanim ously resolved to take steps to form a Roads Board- A coinutitee was ap pointed, and, we. -understand, a grant was subsequently received from the Governmentt ; but the money has been lying idle now for a couple of months, and we have not heard that anything whatever has been done towards form ing the Board. An explanation may reasonably be demanded from the pro moters, of the absence of any apparnt effort on their part to bring the move ment to a successful issue. It is not fair to the Government nor to the district to ask for public money, and when the roquest is complied with allow it to remain unutilized for months, yet this has been done in this district in too many instances of late. A notorious example of this is afforded by the local Fire Brigade promoters, who in response to an urgent telegraphic request made mor...
