CORRESPONDENCE. THE ELECTION CAMPAIGN. [to the EDITOR.] biBj—Mr. iungsmill, in addressing tae dectors at Marble Bar, stated that the mining industry was the mainstay of this colony, and the other resonrces were small indeed. In an editorial yoa also presume that Sir John Forrest will do everything possible for the encourage ment of the only resource tins colony possesses, and compared with which all others are infinitesimal. As regards Sir John Forrest's views. He will do all he can to develop the gold-raining of thecolony in which such large sums of English money have been vested, for he stated that not even a fool would go on investing money if he got no returns within a reasonable time ; and this able statesman also refuted the argument which so many are now using, that gold mining is the only factor in the colony's progress, and points oat clearly that, important as that industry is, and encouraged as it should be, the agricul tural industry must not he lost sight of, especially...

TAMBOURRAH. TAMBOURRAH, April 22. [Newspaper Article] — The Pilbarra Goldfield News — 30 April 1897

TAMBOURRAH. (fBOM OUE OWK COEBKSPOXDENT-) Tambourrau, April 22. The rcsolt of the first crushing of any considei-ahle parcel of stone from this place has been a severe disappointment, both t » the owners and the public generally. The ore treated was 56 tons from the Tamltourrah King, and the yield was 2oz of snielt<-d gold per ton, though a much higher yield was confi dently expected. There has, without doubt, been a fault somewhere, as the stone was worth more than that; but I shall not attempt to locate it. Most probably a sample of the tailings will be sent for assay, which may throw some light on this matter. The Imperial Company's Western Shaw Irattery crushed the parcel, and is now engaged upon some 40 tons from the Western Chief, which, it is said, looks as though it will realise a better return—let us hope so. The " King" is protected for a fort night, but the Rush matte, Brilliant, and what is known as Dawson's P. A , with the Western Chief are all hard at work, ...

A crushing of fifteen tons of stone from the Augusta South lease, having l»een treated at the Stray Shot hattery, was on the 20th inst. cleaned up for 57oz lldwt of smelted gold. The sensation of the week in local mining circles has been a strike of magnificent gold-bearing stone on the White Angel lease, which took place on Monday last, at a depth of 65ft. Mr. J. McDonald, the manager, informs us that! ever since water was encountered the quality of the quartz has been steadily improving. The reef where the rich specimens we have inspected were ob tained is at that place 8ft in width, and is going down vertically, maintaining its sin-, rhe gold is vibiMe right through the pure white quartz, is coarse, and richly distributed.

INTER-PROVINCIAL. [by teleobjlfh.] Perth April 21. Glorious weather prevailed all through the Easter holidays, which passed off most successfully. There were many diversions, including the cricket match Australians versus Westralians, at which the total attendance for the three days was 18,000. The encampment of volunteers at Karakatta was also largely attended, and all in camp this year say that at lost the defence force of the colony is making headway more in pro portion to the general advance of the whole province. For this, thanks are due to the energy and skill of Colonel Wilson and his officers. A large number of people left Perth on Mouday by special train to attend the opening of the Cue railway, and another large contingent visited York races. Gn Monday night the Theatre Royal opened with "The Silver King." thus marking a distinct epoch in the history of West Australia. The company played most successfully.
