The Division of the Field. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 27 February 1896
The Division of the Field. TuE great extent of the East Coolgnardie goldfield, and the vastness and import alice of its mineral resources fully justify its division into two districts. No one can object to the reduction of this district who huis had al idea of the cnornous .au.,ºnt of business that has had to be facedl of late at the W\arden's office. The advance of the tield has been so rapid, that the increase in mining busi ness might have beena weekly observed for some time past. :Thie only objection that can be raised to the cutting up of the district, is the unequal manner in which it appears to have been divided, and to the consequent reduction of the lJnst Coolgardie goldfield to the position hf being the smallest in the colony. Tihe plans are not yet to hand, and full details of the boundaries have not been received, but the new district has been described as including the districts north from the -Black Flag, aid north and east from the SO U up. to Mount Margaret.

Golden West Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 27 February 1896
Golden West Australia. [FROM LONDON TRUTH or JAN. 16.] The market for West Australian Gold Min ing shares has continued to show a very strong tone. thie vagaries of the Kanffir Circus being altogether disreganled, Dealings are not on a large scale, but there is every pro. mise of a very active market itn the nearo future, andul when oce a large demand arises, it will'be found that very few shares in the good mines are available. I do not, of course, speak of the " duller" mines, of which there are many, but of such good mines as the Wealth of Nations, Paddington Consols, Mainland Consols, &c. With reference to the last-mcutioned mine, I have already statel that regular crushing returns on a large scale may be expected in February, and, according to all accounts. these will be of a sensational character. Not that I expect them to be as good as the assay which has just. been pub lished, and which is from the very rich chute, but they will unadoubtedly beexcellent. An- _ other ...

correspondence. [The Editor does not hold himself respon sible for opinions expressed by corres pondents.) GRANTING LICENSES AT THE 1 0 U. TO THE EDITOR. SIR.-In iIotnday's issue of the KAThGoohldlE MINER aI statement is maide to tile effect that " the police authorities intendl to oppose the graniting of aiy further wine and beer licenses at tile i 0 U until police protection for that district is proviled," As far as I lam aware no wine and lbeer licenses have bel granted at the 10 IT. but for the police to object to granting such licenses until police protection is provided is utterly absurd. Is a townl to be retarded in its progress sinmply because the Government cannot see its way clear to pay a stationed constable about tel bob a day to reside there ? The I 0 U is destined to be a large and rich gobldield, and no doubt in the course of a few months, the four hotels now erected there will be taxed to their utmost. But why should people be compelled to sleep in stables, outhouses...
