PUBLIBHED EVER~ Y THURSDAY. THURSDAY, FEB. 27TH, 1896. THE frequent interruptions on the inter colonial telegraph line are a ceaseless cause of public :exasperation. The sender of ,a message to the. Eastern eolonies can never be certain whether it wil.be deliveredin a day or in a week. The despatch of telegrams are, in fact, ittzended by.many of the glorious uncer tainties of a lottery.. These delays un questionably' are productive of much injury to the nmiuing and business coin muanities, and, it| fact, the whole colony. Someone munst be blamed so the Tele graphl Departmentt comes :ith for a fair share of abnse.

The. interruptions, caused as they are by atinosphiesic conditions, are union trlfable ,by mIndanm e authlority,. The iop ortors of this colonsiy are, besides, de pendant on South Australia, so that even in the case of dela...

This I believe has been done, and we are to have Mr. Percy Fielding Warden of the Ncrth-east Coolgardie goiW. field. This has not been granted to us a'day too soon, as the expressions of disgust were both loal and deep, at the manner in which personas coming from a distance had to wait for their turn to be served at the Warden's Court at Kalgoorlie.

A number of cases were heardon Saturday and Monday at the Police Court, that arose out of a fight that commenced on Saturday night a...
