The Eastern Typhoid Epidemic. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 12 March 1896

The Eastern Typhoid Epidemic. A WhLr. populated mining field in its its early stages of development is never wholly free from typhoid or enteric fever, especially during certain seasons of the year. Its presence is as certain as the existence of malaria, cholera and other complaints in many tropical and. densely populated parts of the world. These fields Iave been no exception to the rule, but the sanitary conditions have been, of late, immensely improved in several townships, and we have already shown by returns published in this journal that during recent months the cases of typhoid on these fields, and especially in the Kalgoorlie district, are a mere trifle in proportion to the popu lation. Evc ry now and then we are certainly shocked by hearing of a strong healthy life cut off in its bloom from the dread malady, but such incidents are not confined to the goldfields. It seems inconsistent to read in a recent issue of the " Melbourne Age " warnings against the West Australian gol...

THE SUGGESTED OVERLAND CABLE. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 12 March 1896

THE SUGGESTED OVERLAND CABLE. Referring to the suggestion which has been made to erect an electric cable overland from Adelaide to Perth, Sir Charles Todd says that a similar suggestion was made many years ago, but the idea was never carried out, owing to its enormous cost, which was estimated at that time to amount to something like £800,000. In addi tion to this objection, Sir Charles views the idea of a cable with disfavor, because it would debar important stations en route from having tele graphic communication as it would not be possible to tap the cable. South Australia and Western Australia have entered into a contract for the construction of a duplicate line, and therefore laying a cable now would be out of the question. Sir Charles said that the cable would cer tainly not be affected by sea spray, but the objections he pointed out would be fatal to the scheme. The line, he said. might then break down altogether. Speaking of the duplication of the present line, Sir Charles s...

The South Australian Dinner. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 12 March 1896

The So..th Australian Dinner. THE success that has attended the first annual South Australian dinner 'in London should induce the numerous West Australians, as well as those interested in the colony now in England to consider the advisability of profiting by the example that has been set, and thus secure a big advertisement for the colony. The invitations to the South Australian dinner were accepted by a large number of distinguished person ages, including the Earl of Rosebery, the Earl of Selbourne, and Sir James Fergusson. The gathering was made the occasion of many eulogistic refer ences to South Australia, and an oppor tunity was given to the Agent-General and other representatives of the colony, to point out the value of its resources and other features that should be brought into prominence. The practice of hold ing annual Australian dinners was initiated some years ago by Queensland, and has been since regularly maintained by that colony. The value of such a function appears ...

INTERCOLONIAL TELEGRAPH LINE. IN NEED OF MANY REPAIRS. ADELAIDE, March 5. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 12 March 1896

INTERCOLONIAL TELE GRAPH LINE. IN NEED OF MANY REPAIRS, [BY TELEGRAPH.] ADELAIDE, March 5. Mr T. Brown, pastoralist, owner of the Nnllarbar station at the head of the Great Australian Bight, who re ce utly travelled from the station to Israelite Bay, with a mob of sheep, along the telegraph line has been interviewed. He had an ample oppor tunity of observing the condition of the line, and states the line is on wood poles on the Western Australian sec tion. He considers from what he saw of the line that the poles are rotten. Dry rot and white ants have, he as serts, eaten away the poles at the foot with the exception of those crossing the salt lakes. Some poles had fallen and many which are off at the end had been re-erected with stones around the foot. It was possible for him as he rode along to thrust them over with his hands. In his opinion there are not nearly enough line-men to keep the line properly in repair. There is only one line-man at the Eyre Sand-patch, and only one at I...

Federal Questions. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 12 March 1896

Federal Questions. THE: absence is to be regretted of a direct representative of Wlest Australia at the Premiers' conference which has just beenl c:ncluded in Sydney. The questions of federal defence, quarantine, and immigration are of equal importance to this as to the qther colonies. The voice of West Australia should he heard wherever the federal affairs of A ustralia are being discussed, but there is no reason to suppose that the many argu ments in favor of the representation of West Australia at the conference in question have not been fully recognised by the Government. Important to the colony as was the presence of Sir Johni Forrest, his absence was inevitable, as the state of affairs in West Australia at present would not permit of the Pre mier's leaving the colony for evien a couple of weeks. A special feature of the cor ference was the unanimity that was exhibited towards many of the in tricate subjects that were considered So many war clouds have lately ap peared on the p...

At the Police Court this morning three men under remand on a charge of having stolen gold-bearing quartz from Bayley's No. 1 South mine on March 3rd again appeared. William Berrynman charged with having stolen quartz valued at £5,. John O'Connor, with having taken 5s worth, and Hugh Jen nings, charged with the theft of £70 worth.

The prisoner elected to submit to summary jurisdiction, and subsequently it was arranged that O'Connor's case should be taken with Berryman's, and he also elected summary jurisdiction.

Revenue Returns. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 12 March 1896

Revenue Returns. To the average reader revenue returns possess little fascination. The study of figures is usually dull and unattractive, but to the residents of West Australia and all interested in the colony there should be much that is cheering in the receipts of the colony for February, which have just been issued by the Under-Treasurer. Most of the other colonies continue to drift downward financially, notwithstanding the most vigorous retrenchment, but West Aus tralia still exhibits a marked contrast to the East, and remains the one bright gleam that relieves Australasia from the reproach of general stagnation and in debtedness. The retirns of Mr Eliot for last month sho~:t an even greater adivance compared with' previous monthly returns than was made formerly. No less than £173,373 was collected as revenue this year during February while in the corresponding month of 1895 the total was £92,995, the increase being over 86 per cent. The expenditure was not enlarged during the 1...

CABLEG RAMS. The Abyssinian War A GREAT BATTLE. THREE THOUSAND KILLED. THREE ITALIAN GENERALS WOUNDED. LoNDoN, March 3, 7.30 p.m. Further particulars have come to hand regarding the rece:t battle in Abyssinia, in which the Shoans in great force repulsed an attack that was made on them by the Italian forces under General Baratiere. It appears that three columns of the Italian army were compelled to retire and that they had to abandon half their artillery, which con sequently fell into the hands of the victorious Shoans. Both sides fought with great gallantry and the loss of life was very heavy. The number killed is reported to be 3000. Three Italian generals are amongst the wounded, who are also very numerous. Intense excitement prevails in Rome and elsewhere throughout Italy and the friends and relations of the troops en gaged await with anxiety for the list of the killed and wounded. The action of the commander of the troops in Abyssinia, General Baratiere, was for some time past t...

TELEGRAPHIC. PERTH, March 9. The work of building trucks is re ported to be proceeding satisfactorily. Two weeks ago the superintendent was enabled to make a start with the building of 25 trucks. The ironwork was brought by the steamship Bothnia. During the first week six trucks were turned out. A similar number were produced for the week just closed. Both low and high sided trucks were built, and most of them have gone into use. In addition, the Department has turned out 20 low-sided trucks. Miller's new engine, brought by the steamer Kirklands, and Martin and Co's Gawler engine are running well. Another of the same description is being put together. ADELAIDE, March 8.

THE COURTS. Warden's Court Procedure IMPORTANT CHANGES [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 12 March 1896

THE COURTS. Warden's Court Procedure IMPORTANT CHANGES Mr Davis, the local Warden, has decided on making several changes in the procedure of the Court in regard to exemption applica tions. On lodging these applications it has been the custom formerly to apply for protection for the lease until the application has been dealt with. These applications for protec tion have hitherto been granted as a matter of form, but the Warden has resolved for the future not to grant any such applications and the lease must be worked until the exemption application has been heard. A more important change, however, is the decision of the Warden to grant protection for short periods, up to a month, when good cause has been show: by evidence on oath or by affidavit lodged with him. This will simplify the business of the Ocurt consider ably, and all the delay and waste of time, which cannot be avoided in making applica tion for exemption, will be saved. Of course the grounds for which protection is asked...

Dry Crushing, Amalgamation, and Cyanidation. A TYPICAL PLANT AT THE BROWN HILL MINE. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 12 March 1896

Dry Crushing, A malgama tion, and Cyanidation. A TYPICAL PLANT AT THE BROWN HILL MINE. [Br A MINING ENGINEER.J But little less in importance to the lode itself containing gold or other mnetalsistheeconomi cal and efficient extraction of its gold or less precious metals. The value of a mine de pends not so much on the comparatively small portion of its high grade ores, as in the greater portion of its low grade ores.. For it is the mininmun payable limit of the low , grade ore in a mine that can be mined and milled at a profit, that ultimately determines the real value of that mine. This must neces sarily be so, for nature is rarely a prolific giver, and where very rich ores occur, in thei immediate vicinity are almost always found ores of very low grade-then the output of that mine will depend on the quantity of the latter that can be milled with the former in orler to make the quarlity of the product payable. The methods employed for gold extraction vary in acconLance with the loca...

All labor is concentrated on the main shaft, which is now down about 30Oft. The Kentish, 12 acres, owned by J.

The members of the deputation appointed by Kalgoorlic, Coolgardie, and other centres,, are now on their way to the capital, and the result of their mission will be watched with deepest interest by all who have the welfare of the goldfields at heart. A telegram from Perth, which a: peared in Thursday's MINER, would seem to indicate that the Government is inclined to back down. If this be so the battle may be looked upon as already won, for with the convincing arguments which the members of the deputation will put for ward, any doubts as to the justice of the claim for a different reading of Clause I I which may exist in the minds of the Premier and his colleagues will be dispelled.
