MARITANA EXTENDED. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 12 March 1896
MALRTANA EXTENI)ED. The Maritana Extended, situated about half a mile from the town near the Boulder road, is being developed by an Adelaide corl pany. Since the end of January work has been carried out energeticanlly under the supervision of Mr Middleton with every prospect of success. The mine is not far west of the Maritana, and if the lodes met with in the mines further south continue on their course some of tlhenl should traverse the property. With a view of testing the block as completely as possible it is intended to sink to a depth of abou 100Oft, and then crosscut to test the nature of the ground. The first shaft has already been sunk vertically 90mt, and a crosscut is being run in towards the west to prospect the ground. " This has been carried a dis tance of 127ft, and several very promising leaders have been intersected. The air is now very bad in the face, anvd as work can only be carried ou t with difficulty, it has been decided to sink a second shaft about 800ft west ...
HANNAN'S WEST. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 12 March 1896
IIANNAN'S WWST. Wraterl has been struck in this uine at it depth of 180ft. The shaft is situated on tho east side of the town near the intersection of Maritana and lEgan streets, and has been sunk very rapidly, uaving been in fairly soft ground from the first. As yet the influx is small, averaging about. 100 gallons per shift, but the shaft is being carried down to get ar better supply. A big supply of water so near' the town would in itself be a. very valuable asset, but it is also intended to use the working to test the ground for reefs.
HANNAN'S WEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 12 March 1896
HANNAN'S WEALTH. This is also an Adelaide owned mine, and lies immediately north of the Maritana Ex tended. Since the manager, Mr W. B. Andrews, took charge on January 18 the main shaft has been carried down vertically 104ft, and a start is now being numade to cross cut to the west from the bottom. At a depth of 157ft a quartz vein from 6in to 9in in thickness was met with, and this underlayed rapidly to the west. A little lower down a vein of rather greater width was met with, and this was carried down in the shaft almost to the bottom. This leader consisted of quartz, jasper, and asbestos, and assayed about 1jdwt per ton. There is also a good deal of mica mixed up with the c.sting of the vein and the material forms as queer looking a mixture as any met with on the field. This vcin underlies slightly to the west, and will be passed through within a few feet from the shaft. As soon as the crosscut huts been put in at about 1COft it is p1olposel to liut down another shaft in the midd...

KURNALPI MAIL SERVICE. [TO THE EDITOR.] [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 12 March 1896
KURNIALPI MAIL SERVICE. [TO THE EDITOR. Sir,-In your issue of March 4, 1 notice a few satirical remarks regarding the pro posed alterations in the Kurnalpi mail ser vice. As those remarks are lmade for one ostensible purpose, and are likely to convey an erroneous impression to your readers, I will state the chief reason of the proposed alteration, viz.: To enable the, residents of this district to obtain ireplies from Coolgardie within one week, instead of tivo as at pre sent. This is of paramount importance here as we are at present notblesod with abank. Will you kindly insert this letter in your next ?-Yours faithfully, R. C. JONES, Hon. Sec. Progress Committee. Kurnalpi, March 6.
Correspondence. [The Editor does not hold himself responsible for opinions expressed by correspondents.] THE PRICE OF WATER. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 12 March 1896
Correspondence. [The Editor does not hold himself respon sible for opinions expressed by corres pondents.] THE PRICE OF WATER. TO THE EDITOR. SI--Kindly allow me space for a few remarks re the price charged per gallon for water. At the present time it is 54d per gallon, which is, 1 think, an exorbitant price. A short time since it was 8d, and an outcry was raised which induced the Government to supply it at di, which soon brought the private dealers' charge to the same figure. But now the Government tanks next the Post Officc are closed. It is therefore pro bable that the price for water will be again raised, when, I suppose, the Government will re-open the tanks for a few weeks, and then close them again. I think the Govern ment can well afford to supply water at 3d per gallon. With water at fivepence, and no guarantee that it will unt reach a higher price, how can we expect to permanently increase the population ? What working man with a wife and family can afford to pay it ? With...
Kurnalpi. March 6th. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 12 March 1896
Kurnalpi. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) March 6th. The return cricket match (12 aside) be tween the east and west ends of the town was played on Saturday last, and resulted in another win for the West by 26 runs. The East went first to the wickets and compiled 64, N. Playford, 8 wickets for 38 and the Registrar, Hert-M'Kinery, 2 for 8 being the successful bowlers. The West then faced their opponents' score, but, with the excep tion of their captain, Hert-M'Kinery, offered very feeble resistance to the bowling. M'Kinery, however, did the needful for his side, making 79 without giving a chance. The 11 remaining batsmen made 5 between them and sundries 6. The Westerners' innings reached 90. Great interest was manifested in the game, which was most exciting throughout, as Hert-M'Kinery, in order to win the match for his side had to run for strike throughout the game. There is a great deal of talk about chal lenging some of the other towns to a cricket match on Easter Monday. The heat during...
HANNAN'S PROPRIETARY DEVELOPMENT COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 12 March 1896
HANAN'S PROPRIETARY I)EVELOP.I' MENT COMP'ANY. None of the non-producing companies on the field is doing so muchl work or employ ing so many miners as this corporation Floated in London with a working capital of £100,000 to develop several blocks of leases situated in the main mineral belt of the dis trict, comprising in all 520 acres, it is doing its work rapidly and well. The leases have been grouped together wherever they adjoin, and a plan of operations decidled upon with a view to proving the ground as thoroughly and as speedily as possible. To give some idea of the extent of the block of country to be developed, and its position with reference to the other mines of the district, it may be mentioned that a road has been cut from the company's main camp on the west side of the Boulder road to the Rising Sun and Isabel mines, and for the whole of this dis tance, about two miles, the track never leaves the company's ground, save for a few yards before reaching the Hidden Treasure ...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 12 March 1896
Cycling is hardly the kind of sport to grow maudlin over. And yet the "American Wheelmen's Gazette" has managed to pump up the necessary bathos over Zimmerman s defeat. Here is some of it :--" And Zimmy has been beaten I Let it be whispered in the dead of night; it is much too serious a thing to be shouted from the housetops. . Itis true that the melancholy event happened in far away Australia, but none the less the thing is very bitter. Zimmy has been beaten ? To think that our own dear boy should go through Europe laying the champions right and left like so many rows of wheat and then to be beaten by unknown Australlans. It's too bitter for words."
GROG SHANTIES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 12 March 1896
GROG SHANTIES. TO THE EDITOR. Sin-''here is not :a mining town in any colony where grog phanties are so numerous as Kalgoorlie. It fairly takes the palm in that respect, and the shanties are a soiroe of continuous annoyance to neighbors, a harbor for thieves and larrikins, and a perfect shelter for drunkards. The language used in these places is most filthy in the extreme, and no effort is made by. the low lhanty keeper to check it. A low class of people of both sexes keep these dens., Temporary dead houses are provided to stow away the drunks whilst getting lambed down and robbed. I am surprised the licensed victualeir' batha not ah'eady moved in this matter. 'They are getting robbed on every hand of their legiti mate businesses, after having paid for a license, and taxed with heavy expenses. I am also surprised that the policedo notmake an effort to stamp out the undesirable grog shanties. I have no hesitation in saying that in any other colony they would not be allowed to last lo...

CRICKET. Australia v. Australia. A WIN FOR THE FIRST ELEVEN BY TWO WICKETS. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 12 March 1896
CRICKET. Australia v. Australia. A WIN FOR THE FIRST ELEVEN BY TWO WICKETS. (BY TELEGRAPH.) Percy MDonnell, captain of the Acstralian 2nd Eleven, won the toss and decided to bat. The wicket was in a bad state, but he thought as the sun was shining brightly it would be all right in half a hour. He was wrong in his calculation, as the wicket did not play properly till' ?'cloek in the afternoon. Very heavy rain hadl fallen overnight, and the uorthern end had lain for some time under water. Howell was given a place insteadl of Walters, for it. was felt thr.t his bowling would be wanted, and Trumble stood out of the Austntalian 1st Eleven. It laid between him and Graham to stand out and it was only after some consideration that it was decided to play the latter. Johns behind the wickets was not at home to the fast bowling aunl.he let Bruce off when the latter male 23. The crowd suggested that Kelly was the better man, they chose not to remember that this was Johns' tirst experience of wi...

Mr Benjamin Bellingham, of Cradley Heath, England, who had been landlord of the Bell Hotel for more than half a century, recently passed along the Celestial bar. Owing to his enormous weight-over 26 stone -it had. been found necessary to hoist him to bed at night instead of mounting the stairs in the usual way. He was 85 years of age....
