Ai on the surface the reef consists of nice looking grey quartz mixed with gossan and ironstone, and carries a little gold. The lode is from 5ft to 6ft wide, and is well defined on the hanging wall side, but is somewhat disturbed near the footwall, in fact it is somethbat difieult to tell whether it is the wall or merely a horse of country that has been met with.

The Pioneer Brickmaking Company. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 5 March 1896
The Pioneer Brickmaking Ccmpany. The above company has commenced opera tions near the Government bore, on the Cool gardie road. The first kiln, which consisted of 30,000 bricks, was burned recently, the re sult proving most satisfactory. The clay has been found to resist fire most effectively, and comparatively speaking there were to wasters amongst the bricks. The bricks produced are firm, of sufficient hardness, and Appear to be of a most durable nature. The present color, which is of a greyish white, has been caused through sulphur in the water and clay, and will disappear after a short time when exposed to the air. The bricks altogether are a credit to Messrs Ben. nett anti McGrath, the contractors for the company, aid are worthy of being utilised in the construction of the most elaborate and largest buildings. The days of canvas and galvanised iron buildings in Kalgoorlie are rapidly pass ing away, so the company have made com plete arrangements for meeting a large demand. The ...

Mining News. GREAT BOULDER. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 5 March 1896
Mining News. (BY OUR MINING REPORTER.) GREAT BOULDER. Water has been struck in thie new shaft near the boundary of. the Great Boulder, at a depth of 130ft. This shaft was sunk to tap the main lode which was opcned up in the Great Boulder Main Reef mine some time back, but instead! of opening out at the 100ft level to look for the lode it was decided to continue sinking to the water level in the hope of striking a big supply in the low lying ground in which the pit was started. In following out this plan the shaft has been continued, and will be sunk so long as the water making in the bottom can be coped with by means of a whip. At the present depth it looks as if the lode were maiing in the shift, the whole of the stuff now raised being loley, material. A winding engine is on the road for this shaft, and as soon as this can be got into position sidking will be pushed on as speedily as pos sible, so as to increase the flew of water. Sinking is easy, and a big working shaft measuring ...

SOUTH. AUSTRALIA, $TOOK ROUTE TO WEST AUS . TRALIA. ADELAIDE, March 3. The Surveyor "General has received an interesting report from Mr Hubbs the leader of the .expedition who re cently left for the interior to find a stock route to West Australia. It appears that the trip southward to the Musgrove Ranges is useful only in a negotiative :sense. Mr Hubbs met heavy rains but disappointment was experienced at Lindsay MoundBprings where, at a depth of 25ft 6in, in tensely salt water strongly impregna ted with gypsum was struck. At 52 ft Sin the tools refused to penetrate the solid gypsum that was encountered and the bore was abandoned.
COOLGARDIE NEWS. THE COSGROVE MINE. COOLGARDIE, March 3. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 5 March 1896
COOLGARDIE NETWS. THE COSGROVE MINE. [uY TELEGRPH.LA COOLGARDIE, March. :. At the Cosgrove mine prcktically no work is being done, only sufficient men being kept to hold thei grund. A five-head battery and boiler 'hve been erected since last October, but as one ori two parts of the engine are lost no stone haM been crushed. The mis sing parts were traced through the Customs, but were at terwards : lost, and the duplicate parts are 'supposed to be somewhere on the road. The directors deserve the severest colidem nation for their apathetic rmalnage ment. The mine is likely to prove the best on the line, and as tlhere is plenty of water in the shaft and an abundance of ore at grass, the Board have no excuse for having delayed starting crushing. Had a little ordi nary energy been used the mine should now be turning out very good returns.

The Europeai PoPi ers were not unjustly. reproached forI$heir failure. to prevent further massacres, and the Jingoes of the States proposed, that they should undertake the dep6sition' of Abdul Hmid; but His Majesty unfortunately ineeild more than ille words to get him to .acate his throne, and the tall talk of the United.

Telegraphic. PERTH, February 29. Two men named Robert Evans and Thomas Montgomery have been ar rested in Perth in connection with the tobacco robbery from Burgess's store, Fremantle. The men, when arrested, were found in possession of over 2 cwt. of tobacco and five boxes of cigars. Both men recently came from Vic toria. A meeting has been held at Fre mantle to consider the administration of the Post and Telegraph and the Railway Departments. There was a good attendance. A resolution deplor ing the state of affairs was proposed and supported by a number of pro minent men. An amendment was proposed by a labor leader known as Bill to the effect that the departments required reorganisation, and to do this it was necessary that the whole Cabinet should he reconstructed. This was carried by a large majority. An important minute, forwarded to th' Premier by the Commissioner of R:ilways, has been published dealing with the rolling stock question.

The Storyteller. THE CONSUL'S WIFE. A STORY OF THE CHINA MACCACRES. I. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 5 March 1896
The Storyteller. THE CONSUL'S WIFE. A STORY OF THE CHINA MACCACRES. 1. Consul Green was a little man, fat, bald and otherwise physically unprepossessing. i3ut there was no denying the goodness of lhis disposition. During his furlough at Chesnerton he had proved himself a worth y fellow in many ways, what with treats to school children and unostentatious charity towards the poor. And he quite won Mrs Broderick's heart. It was the winning of Mrs Broderick's heart that helped him mainly to win Isabel Broderick's hand. . Mr Broderick was the vicar of Chesner. ton, a poor living; and he had five children, of whom Isabel was the eldest. Isabel was just 21 when Consul Greeni arrived in the village from China. She was reckoned a beauty. She was dark of eyes and complexion, and of a magnificent pre sence for so young a woman. It seemed absurd that she should be mated with a little tub of a man like the consul, who was, moreover, 48. If any one Ihad suggested such a possibility to the girl du...

The Gaiety Company. A SUCCESSFUL OPENING. Monday night was noteworthy as being the occasion of the first theatrical performance in Kalgoorlie. Hitherto the difficulties of the road and other causes have been too much for theatrical managers, and Messrs Stevens and Wilkinson are to be con gratulated on their enterprise in overcoming these difficulties, and in bringing to the town a company whose performniances are well worth patronising. Solomon's Hall madle a very good auditorium. and special exertions were made by Mr Stevens to have everything in readiness by last night for the comfort and convenience of the audience. There was a large attendance, including a fair number of ladies, while amongst those present were the Warden and other leading residents. The pantomine staged for last night was the evergreen " Cinderella" with all its old jokes and plenty of new cites added. It is well for the performers that they live in a free coultry, for in some lands they would surely be iut to ...
