Sixty Years Married. AN INTERESTING OLD COUPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 24 May 1913

Sixty Years Married   AN INTERESTING OLD COUPLE Mr. and Mrs. Nicholas Libou, who   on Saturday last celebrated the dia-   mond jubilee of their marriage at the   residence of their son, Mr. H.W.     Libou, George-street, Solomontown, out-   lived some of the events of their lives     for the benefit of a "Recorder" re- porter a day or two ago, and the hour's t   chat proved not only exceedingly   pleasant for the scribe, but roductive of a number of really interesting re- miniscences. Accounts of doings in the   infant days of the State to anyone   possessed of an imagination. — and what mortals are not — are invariably charg-       ed with indescribable magnetism. Note   the rivetted attention, given to a vet-     eran as he tells, in rugg...

Southern Cross Racing Club. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 24 May 1913

Southern Cross Racing Club Monday last was a perfect day for           the races held under the auspices of   the above club .Though there was a   rather poor attendance the punters         had a real good day, and on all   hands the hope was expressed that         the next meeting would be on a more ambitious scale, and that the outside mining districts would be better rep- presented. Some of the farmers of       Kellerberrin brought along their horses   but did not score a win with any of     them. It would be advisable for the   committee to have some screens at the   back of the grandstand for the next meeting as the sun was a trifle annoy - ing.   &nb...

Told at Crib Time. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 24 May 1913

Told at Crib Time. (By "The Orphan.")   At crib time underground you will hear discussions about everything under the sun, and all sorts of argu-   ments are advanced in support of their pet theories. The average miner is not the rough uncouth being he is rep- resented, very far from it. He is in- telligent, observant and thoughtful.   He reads the papers, and takes a keen     interest in all the leading questions of the day. He is well read, and has his favorite authors, both ancient and     modern. He can quote Shakespeare,   or sling hunks of Hansard around, though I must admit his quotations from "Hansard" are invariably from       a Labor point of view. We were sitting at crib the other day, and were discussing the mates we had on these and other fields, when one made the following observation — "The average practical miner is an easy ma...

Sporting. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 24 May 1913

Sporting.   ________           It is a well-known fact that many   bookmakers are the owners of horses, and one frequently hears discussions as to whether this should be allowed. The question has beem brought forward in England, and a well-known writer in the English " Referee, " comment- ing on it, says: — "My own idea is that any man ought to be allowed to keep horses if he runs them straight and in sporting fashion. Surely there should be no question of barring any one who does this? Those who would prevent bookmakers taking part in the sport have to go a very long way round to find anything distantly approaching a reason. It is said that ringmen who are also owners are brought into inti- mate communication with jockeys, from whom they learn secrets connec- ted with the other owners for whom these jockeys ride. I do not believe that a jockey who is inclined to be communicative to a bookmake...

PERTH GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 24 May 1913

PERTH GOSSIP   (By James Smith.)   The Premier is back. A large por-     tion of the loan is available. But we are not quite a happy family.The         clerk of the weather has been very tardy in sending us rain. Since 1911,   when he nearly forgot us altogether, we have lost confidence in him. There's lots of time yet for him to regain his lost reputation during this season, but he should make an early start, and re- lieve our anxiety. After all, he and his behavior are far more important to the State than wandering Premiers or interest-bearing loans. The latter are somewhat expensive luxuries. But   the weather clerk charges neither   travelling expenses nor interest; nor does he demand to be paid back the principal. The limited amount that fell a month ago was very good for a start, but sunshine has predominated since then, until Tuesday, ...

Our Eastern Letter. Sydney, May 6th, 1913. Religion in the Schools. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 24 May 1913

Our Eastern Letter Sydney, May 6th, 1913         Religion in the Schools.           Once more the Minister for Public         Instruction has felt called upon to   vindicate the State schools from the     charge pf Godlessness.It is the most     serious imputation that could pos-     sibly be made against them and Mr. Carmichael addressed himself to it as if he fully realised its import and sig- nificance. Religious instruction, he pointed out, is a part of the syllabus, and, in addition, ministers of religion were at liberty to impart instruction on their own account. The reports of inspectors showed that the teachers did what was expected of them, but   that opportunities accorded to the min- isters were not alwa...

A Conspiracy of Silence. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 24 May 1913

.A Conspiracy of Silence. In the case of the railway strikers, stress was laid by their counsel on the fact that they had made no over demand. A strike is a cessation of work in order to enforce some demand. Could it be said that it had been proved that there was a strike when there was no evidence of a demand? His Honor took time to consider the point, but, after deliberation, he brush- ed the objection aside as a mere quibble. "Men did not cease earning money for nothing," he said. There fore, they must have ceased work for something, and that something, what ever it was, constituted the demand. The fact that, by common consent,     they had refused to put their demand into so many words, although the papers were full of information about negotiations which were passing be- tween the strikers and the Govern-   ment, was proof of agreement between them, but was by no means proof that   there was no demand. We may there- fore concl...

No Bread. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 24 May 1913

No Bread.     Even the "staff of life" is not exempt from the attentions of the strikers. This morning we are in- formed that there will be no delivery of bread to-morrow. The bread carters have been granted an addi- tional holiday, but the bakers refuse to bake the additional supply of bread which would give the people two days' supply in one. Ths carters held a meeting to decide whether they should insist on their rights to the extent of depriving the public of bread. By two votes in a meeting of over 300, it was decided to take the drastic course. Much inconvenience, and some priva- tion, will of course, ensue. But the people seem to be as patient under union tyranny as they formerly were under other forms of the infliction. So long as this is the case there is no hope of respite.

Hospital Saturday. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 24 May 1913

Hospital Saturday. Despite the counter attractions of the cadet parade, the outdoor collec- tions on Hospital Saturday were al- most equal to those of last year, when loose cash was certainly much more   abundant than it is at present. The   indoor collections were somewhat in excess, so that, as a whole, the record is still one of advancement. The result     is largely due to increased efficiency       in organisation. It is only fair to the   committee and the collectors to say that many of the objectionable fea- tures which have called for somewhat sharp criticism in their earlier efforts, have been considerably modified, though, in the nature of the case, they cannot be altogether removed.

"Reckless Malice." [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 24 May 1913

"Reckless Malice."   In sentencing some 50 railway     strikers to pay fines amounting to £11 in the ease of leading porters, and £8 in the case of others, Judge Heydon, presiding over the Arbitration Court, dwelt on the "reckless malice" ex- hibited by the men, and said that this deplorable spirit was not confined to this particular case. They left the property of their fellow citizens to rot, entirely callous to the consequences. Then, we begin to ask, is it not the ob- ject of nearly every strike to cause as much injury as possible, and does not the greater part of that injury fall on unoffending persons? His Honor   said that the malice displayed in this instance seemed to denote a grudge   against society. Is not this "grudge"       the mainspring of the whole sorry business? Is not the secret dream of the instigators of these proceedings that they will render the present sta...

The Governor-General. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 24 May 1913

The Governor-General. The Governor- General made his fly- ing visit to review our budding sol- diers, according to programme. Denied by the State Government the use of the official residence in Macquarie- street, his Excellency drove to a club, and thence to the residence of the State Governor, and left by steamer for Melbourne at night. It is the first time in the history of the State that such a thing has happened, and it is hoped that it will be the last. The rousing welcome accorded to Lord Denman by the immense crowd that witnessed his arrival, and the more formal welcome of the Lord Mayor and influential citizens, must have convinced him that the people of Sydney are no parties to the peculiarly shabby manner in which he has been treated.

The Cadet March. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 24 May 1913

The Cadet March. The cadet march was an imposing spectacle. At the saluting point, how ever, there was a rush of the crowd which spoilt the formation. Men, who, if there were any need for soldiers, ought to have been bearing arms them- selves, shouldered the kiddies out of their line of march, and caused a most   regrettable interruption. It seems un- deniable that there has been a marked improvement in the physique and bearing of the lads since the last parade. But there are still many who believe that these benefits are being too dearly paid for. Mr. Fisher, inter- viewed on the subject in Melbourne, was told that compulsory training is unpopular with working class mothers, many of whom find that their lads are overtaxed. The Prime Minister him- self did not seem any too well at ease, for he promised to give consideration to the question of inserting a con- science clause, and of alleviating some of the harsher features of the system. Some of our ardent believers in '...

The Joining Boom. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 24 May 1913

The Mining Boom.       The mining boom at Appleton is go- ing the way of other booms. But not before a good many credulous persons have been eased of their money. It is the old story. A few claims which showed undeniably promising prospects, were discovered, and straightaway every bit of ground in the neighbor- hood was pegged out. Many of them were made the subjeet of flaming prospectuses, promising wealth almost beyond the dreams of avarice to gul- lible persons of speculative instincts. Some of these "shows," as a hard- headed sharebroker remarks in his monthly report, are about as likely to strike a payable lead as a shaft sunk in Pitt-street. However, there have been sharks and minnows since time began, and there probably will   be till the end of the chapter. One   mystifying feature is the prominence   given to what is called "lode forma-   tion." The unsophisticated person naturally im...

NORTHAMPTON MINING. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 24 May 1913

'NORTHAMPTON MINING.   Mr. F. B. Rowe, a mining man in- terested in Northampton show, unbur- dened himself the other day. He   said, "I can find you idle copper pro- positions locked up under old Imperial grants near Northampton that should be carrying a hundred men. There are also big load propositions, and amongst other minerals awaiting ex- ploiting there are scheelite, tungsten, wolfram, and mica. Mr. G. L. Bonner, who is working the mica show, is at present in Perth getting capital to put down a shaft to test the property. The mica is of a quality worth from 3/9 to 19/- per lb."— ''Murchison   Times."

UNION MATTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 24 May 1913

UNION MATTERS.     (From the " Southern Cross Times" ). There are so few members of the local branch of the Miners' Union — and that few are so apathelic —that there has been some talk of disband- ing the local branch and throwing in with the Bullfinch. This would be a most injudicious step to take, for in the very near future the Transvaal will be giving employment to quite a large number of men, and there is every probability of the Fraser's being worked on a big scale. The Southern Cross Union was the first to be formed on the field, and with such bright pros- pects ahead, it would be a shame to terminate its existence.

"POMMIES" WANTED. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 24 May 1913

"POMMIES" WANTED. There seems to be a sort of epidemic hunger for "Pommy" girls in South Loch this outbreak of desire was made evident. Big Andy Udd, the Swedish giant, was the first to express his sen- timents on the Pommy question. Andy said to our representative. "Mr. News paper man, I Vont to advertise in your paper." "Yes, Andy, what are you wanting?" "Put it in like this: 'Wanted, a Pommy girl; one with red huir preferred." A few moments later   Herman Kakoski, the Russian who works hard and saves money all the year round, and then gets a notion at Christmas that he can pick winners at the races, came along and handed our     man the following:— "Vounted von Pommy for matrimony; plack eyes is pest, put not art to blesse. I vould make a goot man. — Abbly Herman." Little notice was taken of the two ap- plications, but our man could see that the longing for winter comfort had taken a serious grip of the men down south, for Jimmy De Poali and...
