For some months milners and settlers in the neighborhood of Palmer's and Oakley have suffered severely from the depredations of a man known as " Slippery JIck," who was often seen but liever captured. The man has been in the habit of visiting houses and tents in the absence of the occupants and stripping them of portable property. He would then return to his haunts in the mountains. All attempts to fiud his hiding place failed until Friday, when a settler nanmed William Hutchison while on thie ranges reached the top of an alhnost imcessible peak. looking down from which he diseovered -siboke curling qup from a cavern far below. He descended the mountain, and on coming near the place lie Iotice: a cleared plot of grounnd. He investigated no further but went back to the town and informed the police, who organised a raid.

THE TOWN OF JOHANNESBURG. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 27 February 1896
THE TOWN OF JOHANNESBURG. The eyes of the civilisel world have re cently been turned to Johannesburg, in con sequence of Dr Jamieson's invasion of the Tmnsvnal with the intention of aiding the Uitlanders residing there in a preairrangad insurrection that was to have taken place against President Krliger'sGovermnment. The town is situated in the Heidelberg district of the South African Republic. 30 miles south west of the capital Prctoria.

Almost all the railway officials are Hollanders. The rail ways arc,'all badly construct...

Repairs to the damaged section of the Central Railway, between Rcckhampton and Grasmere, have been completed sufficiently to enable a train to go through. Stockmen sent by Mr C. J.

A Seat on the Melbourne Exchange. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 27 February 1896
A Seat on the Melbourne Exchange. "Atticus" in the Melbourne " Leader" writes :--I should like to know the history of thlnt curious individual whose doings were related by Rev Mr M'Neil to Presbyterians the other day. This strange person pur chased a seat. on the Melbourne Stock Ex change for the round sum of £1400; butas he found that the practice of buying and selling stock for clients was in direct contravention of his views on the doctrines of Christianity. lhe gave up his seat. Now, one is fi s tempted to inquire what he supposed would be the duties of n scat hohler at the Exchange, be cause it seems odd that a man should invest so largely without having satisfied himself beforehandl that he could conscientiously fulfil them. 'Next, did he give up his seat for nothing? or did lihe sell it- to someone else : for itn either case he was only making room for someone of a less squeamish moral code.

Golden Ashantee. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 27 February 1896
Golden Ashantee. There is in Ashantee a ringe of rich quartz rocks on the higher ground., on the lower grouuds long stretches of nuri ferous alluvial deposit. Gold is practi ctlly everywhere--on the mlontaill sides, in the river beds in the common rude ornaments of the people. For trifling purchases even thte medium of exchange is gold dust. To this region the approach is through a fever-striken country, roadless pathless evenl-for so rank is the vegetation and so rapid its growth, that every traveller hacks a way where his predecessor hacked before. Over all hangs the promise of sanguinary war. another clearing away of barbarism, the development of long-buried riches, and a further great stimulus given to the craving appetites of our generation.

THE CRŒSUS. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 27 February 1896
THE CIR(ESUS. -The transfer of this mine to the English company wiill?-not le completed until the 'v ppio :arrive from the head office, and the consulting engineer comes from London. In -the 'meantime the developments that are taking place are nlly doubling the value of the property, and the poor Adelaide slhare holders will have the satisfaction of aseing their mine, enrich the alleged English liur chasers. The big lote met with in the No. I . North runs into the Craesus, and in sinking a new shaft to tap it what is believed to be the top of the lode' has been struck at a depth of 75ft. A few days will prove -vhetlher this is the case, but the ironstone chistose material closely resembles the cap ping of thelode :in the adjoining property, and the nathager of 'the latter,' hr R.H.' SCr)el~, is satisfied that it is the body on which he is working. Even this does not represent the whole of thf luck of the Craesus, as the underlay of the lode is west. and there is every reason to beli...

Under the new management opera tions are being concentrated on the main shaft, which is being sunk three shift, andl has already attained a depth of 140ft, The bottom is in soft country still, but several veins and leaders have been passedl through in the last few feet and there is every sign of reaching settled ground a few feet deeper. It is intended to carry the shaft down to a depth of 250ft and then open out. Crosscuts will be run in east and west to cut the lode while a drive will be started to connect with the north shaft, which is down 125ft, and will be continued to the 250ft level. The main s...

CRCESUS NO. 1 NORTH. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 27 February 1896
CIRESUS NO. I NORTIH. This mine which is being worked by the Central Exploration Co., is opening up won derfully. It is a nine-acre block situated on the east and north of the Crosus mine, and now promises to be one of the show properties of the district. For a long time the chief work in progress was a drive along thecourse of the vein supposed to be the lode, which had contracted. This drive was carried a distance of 200ft from the No. 1 shaft in a northerly direction. To test the ccmntry and also the oft-propounded theory that the true lode was on the footwall, or eastern side of the workings, a crosscut was run in at the northmost end of the drive, and within a few feet the reef was met with. The lode at this point proved to be 35ft wide, and is phenomenally rich. Three feet on the foot wvall side averages about I lozs per ton while the balance of the 35ft averages about 7ozs per ton. This is a record, even for Kalgoor lie, taking both the width and gold value into consideration...
