Sub-inspector Holmes saidu that there were a number of applications which appeared to be out of order, inasmuch as they were signed, not by the applicants, but by solici tors on their behalf. He would like the Bench to decide as to whether these applica. tions could be entertained. Mr Hare said he was not acquainted with the person who had aldressed the court. He presumed lie must have some authority for speaking. Sub-Inspector Holmes: I am the Sub-In spector of Police. Mr Hare : Then why is the sub-inspector not in uniform ? He is guilty of disrespect to the Bench in appear ing in ordinary dress. No police officer had a right to appear unless he were on duty, and if on duty he should be in uniform.

Abdul Hamid. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 5 March 1896
Abdul Hamid. INTERNATIONAL jealousy has placed the Suitan in a position' of immunity from the interference of European powers in the administration . of the affairs pf Asia Minor.' The representatives Of the countries that view with horror the massacres of the Christians in Armenia have been unable to agree to any one individual power taking action, or to concerted actioni, and annouicements continue to shock the world of the ,butchering of men, women, and children. The cries of the helpless sufferers hak been unheeded and they still remain at the mercy of .the sovereign who regards himself as the shadow of Godd on earth, Commander of the Faith ful, and Chief-Constable of Christendom in Western Asia and Eastern Europe. A most wretched, pinched-up, un happy-looking little man of dark complexion and a beard of dusky grey--suich is the description given by Miss Elliott of the man whom Turkish writers describe as " the finest pearl of the age and the. esteemed centre of the universe, at...

The Manning of Leases. (BY TELEGRAPH.) PERTi, Feb. 27. The Minister for Mines recently re ceived a communication from the mine proprietors of the easterni goldfields, representing that the present require ments-that there should be a miner employed for every three acres held for mining purposes-pressed very hard on a great number of claim-holders. It was represented to the Minister that there was great difficulty, even in the largest centres, in getting practical miners. The Minister is considering the matter with a view of seeing whether in special cases the regulations could not be altered to meet the circumstances.
Adult Suffrage. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 5 March 1896
Adult Suffrage. In a couple of months time a general election will be held in South Australia, at which, for the first time in the history of Australia, women will be granted voting power equal to men. The results of the election will be watched with considerable interest in order to see how women will exercise their new privilege; A telegram published in yesterday's issue indicated that in New Zealand, where the franchise was extended a couple of years ago to the fair sex, the Government have made important con- cessions to the Temperance party, and intend going the length of total Prohi- bition, where such a reform is approved &nbsp; of by a majority of members of a licens- ing district. In South Australia the Government are evidently bidding for &nbsp; the women's vote, which is a very im- &nbsp; portant consideration. In some con- stituencies their voting power is greater &nbsp; than that of the sterner sex, and the total number of female voters i...

RISING SUN. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 5 March 1896
RISING SUN. A formation carrying gold has been struck in crosscutting west at the 8Oft, level from the eastern shaft on this mine. The edge of the reef has as yet only been touched, and the width and value of the lode has not been demonstrated. It is very solid, and is appa- rently lying east of the very rich reef which was worked in the early days from the old underlay shaft. The new manager, Mr Hollow, is starting to sink a main shaft in the middle of the block, and it is intended to run the crosscut through to connect the two shafts, and thus open up the block, for a considerable width with a view to testing its value. As soon as this work is accomplished a start will be made to crosscut east to catch the continuation of the Isabel reef, which is supposed to run along the eastern boundary of the mine. A good deal of energy is being infused, into the working of the property, and the present prospects are good.

Ball at Kanowra. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) The Leap Year ball held last Friday evering at the Kanowna Hotel may be said to 'have been one of the most suocessful " shivoos " ever held here. In the past there has been on such occasions a lack of the fair sex, but there was' no such lack last Friday eyening. A' large cohtiugent of' gentlemen arrived from Kalgoorlie. They were driven by Warden Davis, who, I am told, handled his four-in-hand in a creditable mannbr.' I am sorry to have to add that the Kalgoorlie ladies did not favor us as they have done in the past, 'only oieliady travelling the journey. The Warden's party included Messrs Taylor, Campbell, Berliner, Vernon, ,Dupley,, Flet cher, and Brook.

Mining Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 5 March 1896
Mining Notes. It is understood that a new manager' has beeli appointed to take charge of the Kal gooriie Proprietary mine, viceCaptaln Hawke resigned. Good work has been done on the mine since it was taken over by the company a few months ago, and it is a pity to see an experienced manager like Captain Hawk' leaving the district. Mr Grifliths, the representative of the South African Gold Recovery Company, has returned to Kalgoorlie after having a look at all the districts of the fields, and intepds to invest in our mines. He inspected several properties on Tuesday, and to-day will visit Broad. Arrow. , His,stay on - A fields ans already lnsted some weeks, and within a few days Mr Griffiths will start for London.

Bardoc Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 5 March 1896
Bardoc Notes. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) Since my last letter business has improved considerably, numerous enquiries having been made for properties. developed and otherwise. It is stated that some good shows have been placed under offer, particu- lars of which are not available as the ven- dors are somewhat reticent. Very rich stone is being raised on the Kentish mine, 12-acre block, situated on the Towanini line of reef. Samples have been shown to me by the owner, Mr J. Cosma, which fairly glisten with gold. The reef which is dipping slightly to the west, ave- rages 2ft in width from the surface to the present level, 25ft, and sinking is being carried on. The Mullara is a very valuable 12 acre block, owned by J. Paine and party, and adjoins the above. The reef at the present level, 50ft, is about 7ft wide, and shows coarse gold freely. It is the intentione of the owners to sink another 50ft before again driving. The Nerrin Nerrin is a 25 acre block situ- ated about two and a-half m...
RARDOC v. BROAD ARROW. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 5 March 1896
RARDOC v. BROAD ARROW. (FROM OUR BARDOC CORRESPONDENT.) The much talked of cricket match between the Broad Arrow first eleven and a local team was played on Sunday last, February 23, and resulted in an easy win for the Bardoc boys by ten wickets and two runs, but it is only fair to the visitors, who were captained by C. Brown, to state that they were deprived at the last moment of the services of some of their best men, who were obliged by pressing business to absent themselves. For the visitors Mills, Roberts, and Brown did good service, while for Bardoc, who were cap- tained by T. Craig, Bolitho and Jones played well, and the bowling of Matheson, who was in great form, proved most disastrous to the wickets of the "Arrows." I append the scores. BARDOC. 1st Innings. E.
