As Others See Us. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 27 February 1896

As Others See Us. The following letter from Captain Polglese. an old Queensland miner, published in the " Bundaberg Mail" is interesting : - ' I hardlyknow where to start to give you any thing like an adequate ideaof the work going on, &c, but it reminds me of the Garden Gully line in Bendigo, with its popJpet hedls, whims, whips, windlasses, and machinery erected, or in course of erection ; the white tents, bush houses, and hessian buildings; while the town itself can boast of some very nice buiblings and has a look of permanency about lit, as if it had come to stay. You have not forgotten the old adage. "Where it tes, there it tes " and it is quite applicable to this field. Mlany a score of shafts will be put down that will never pay for the cost of sinking, and leases will be abandoned by the score, but despite this fact, there are claims here, and lines of lode, that are going to live. Within a radius of a mile from my camp, there are six crushing plants, totalling 60 he...

The Critics of the Government. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 27 February 1896

The Critics of the Govern ment. Tax adverse criticism to which the Government have been subjected has elicited an able reply from the Premier this week in Perth. Those who are accustomed to condemn iin strong lan guage the administration of the colony mostly exhibit w:iut of fairness and consideration as regards the authorities. The quiet, humdrum condition in which the colony existed for generations, dur ing which money was scarce and com merce. almost a minus quantity, was first disturbed by the granting of re sponsible government, and a few years after came the discoveries of the various goldfields, and the rapid advance of the colony in wealth, population, and busi ness. The machinery, that had suited the requirements of the old days was called on to meet the niinerous and ex tensive needs of a colony that had suddenly become the most progressive in Australasia. A comparison is often drf?a by ,new nrrivals between the post and telegraph and railway arrange ments, as well as the ...

Correspondence. [The Editor does not hold himself respon sible for opinions expressed by corres pondents.] WARDEX'S OFFICE OFFICIALS. TO THE EDITOR. SIR--With reference to a paragraph in your issue of to-day concerning an angry mining agent who lost his temper and, used hard words in the Warden's office yesterday, kindly permit me, as the offending patty, to correct the impression therein conveyedl. The exclamation used was, not for one moment intetrled to apply to all the officials, but simply to two junior clerks who, after keep ing me dancing attendance on them unneces sarily, as I think, for a whole week, rewarded' me at length by effcecting certain entries prejudicial to my client. and in distinct opposition to instructions by the 1W4arden, who, with his well known impartiality has promised to investigate the whole circum stances. As the matter is still sub judice, and the remark made in the heat of the moment was unreservedly withdrawn. I will now say nothing further than that...

THE PROPOSED ROADS BOARD. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 27 February 1896

THE PROPOSED I.OADS BOARD. TO THE EDITOR. IR--Some ten weeks or so ago a meeting was convened for the purpose of forming a Roads Board, or arranging for the election of. a Roads Board for the East Coolgardleo goldfield. This action was taken, I believe. in- consequence of a suggestion from our much-abused Premier, Sir John Forrest, who stated that the Government would advance a sum of money to commence operations with. The movement, began in such a promising manner, has. I believe, like similar affairs in our town (the recent Fire Brigade committe for instance) collapsed, anl the chances are that although the Government has advanced the subsidy, nothing more will Le done in the matter. With such a state of affairs as this I would suggest that in future the Government be asked, in aidlition to advancing funds for public purposes, to send up an energetic working coemm'tte3c from Perth so that our citizens can attend the open-call undisturbed, otherwise I can see nothing for it but to ...

Over 7J niluers ,were engabmg at the commencement of operations at £4 per week, but after about a fortnight's work a notice was posted stating wages would be reduced to £3 10s and water after the 26th inst. That notice appeared on that memor able day when about 30 men were refused work excepting at the reduced iwages, after walking out from Hannans, where they had been engaged at £4 per week. That men were not then wanted at any price is plain when we now read of exemptions being granted to a number of Corsair leases. After the 26th instant the miners were notified of the reduced wages, whidh is merely a rimple way of getting men to leave. The prices of stores here are far in excess of Kalgoorlie prices, and consequently the miners have all signed a notice to the manager of their in tention to leave unless they get £4 a week as arranged.
