A PLUCKY LADY. SYDNEY, March 8. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 12 March 1896
A PLUCKY LADY. (BY TELEGRAPH.) SYDNEY, March 8. A lady had early this morning a sensational experience with a burglar, in which she displayed considerable courage. About two o'clock in the morning Mrs Macken, who is the wife of a leading business man in th1e city, residing at Longue Villa, Farm Cove, heard a noise down stairs. Her hus band was away from home and she was naturally somewhat alarmed, so, taking her husband's revolver for safety sake, she crept downstairs. In the dining room she was seized by a man and swung against the wall. She fired at her assailant and he let her go. Then in the dim light she saw a man in the room some distance from her. A thunderstorm prevailed at the time, and when a flash of lightning came she fired at him by its light. As the thunderstorm provided further fitful illustrations she kept on firing, not tl:inking that she had succeeded in potting her mark. After the sixth shot the man made a rush for the door and escaped into the garden. Mrs Macken,...

THE GOLDEN CROWN. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 12 March 1896
THE GOLDEN GROWN. An important development has taken place in the Hannan's Golden Crown mine which is of very great moment to all pro perties on that line of lode. The Haunan's Golden Crown syndicate, composed princi pally of working men, took up two gold leases of 24 acres each on what is known as the Golden Ridge line of formation, and since they have continuously developed the pro perty. Several large costeens have been put in across this formation, and prospects taken from the surface at various parts yielded favorable results : iii fact, some of them went as high as 2oz of gold per ton. The syndicate being satisfied that gold existed in this formation, sank a shaft on what appears to be the hanging wall of the lode to a depth of 50ft, where a drive was put in to intersect the lode, and on Monday last they were rewarded for their enterprise and outlay by cutting the lode carrying very nice gold, evenly distributed thluough the stone. Several samples were dollied and panned off, ...

The Transter Regulations. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 12 March 1896
The Transfer Regulations. ON Monday a deputation that was prac tically representtative of the whole of the goldfields of the colony waited on the authorities in Perth to urge that clause 11 relating to the transfer of leases be administered in accordance with its cor rect interpretation. The draft proposals that were submitted to the members in answer to their request are published to day in our telegraph columns, and will, no doubt, be read generally with a feel ing of disappointment, and give rise to accusations not altogether without foundation that some at any rate of the members of the Ministry are desirous of sacrificing the interests of the gold fields to those of Perth. The latest proposals of the Ministry are tthatthe registration of all instruments should take place at the head office in Perth, and that all instruments should be lodged either with the Wardens on the various goldfields or at the head office, the priority of the instruments to be in accordance with the time ...

Mining News. BAD FUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 12 March 1896
Mining News. (BY OUR MINING REPORTER.) BAD FUSE. A dastardly piece of work on the part of a fuse maker was discovered at the Brown Hill Junction recently when on examining a train that had gone out before firing the charge it was found that there was a knot in it preventing the powder being ignited. The knot was neatly nmade in the course of manu facture, and the outer tarred coating carefully plaited over the joint to prevent any sign of the knot showing. Fortunately the fact that one of the shots had missed was noticed at the time, otherwise a very serious accident might have happened, as the fuse was at tached to three plugs of dynamite, which were sufficient to blow the whole of the workmen engaged i.: the slaft to the surface. Had a cheap variety of fuse been used no sympathy would have been felt with the manager, but as he had the best makes of fuse only in stock it is annoying to find that such culpable negligence shouhld be permitted in the making of a class of goods on whic...
HANNAN'S VICTORIA CROSS. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 12 March 1896
HANNAN'S VICTORIA CROSS. The lode has been struck at at depth of ll4ft in the Hannan's Victoria Crass, and it carries good gold. The lode was cut in sink ing the shaft at ri depth of 92ft and was fol lowed down to the 1l4ft level, where it passed out of. the shaft. It is estimated to be worth 2oz per ton, and, as the prospecting pit is very small, it has been decided to sink a working shaft to open up the reef at a greater depth. A start has been made to do this, and, in consequence, operations in the old workings have been suspended. The reef at the bottom of the shaft consists of bluish quartz much ironstained and containing patches of gossan, with which the stone is in places honeycombed. The lode is from lft to 4ft wide and is a very solid body of stone. It is the same line as the Rose and Shamrock mine is on, the western reef in both instances being the chief gold bearer. The eastern lode is not so wide in either mine, and in both is so little im pregnated with iron to seem har...

A TIDE WAITER'S ADVENTURE. IMPRISONED AS A SMUGGLER [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 12 March 1896
A TIDE WAITER'S ADVEN TURE. IMPRISONED AS A SMUGGLER Pat O'Connor, tide waiter, employed by the Customs Department, had a somewhat unpleasant experience at the hands of the police. On Sunday evening O'Connor was on duty on the steamer Menmuir, lying at Mort's Dock for repairs, when he captured a Clhiilaman going ashore with seven tins of opium that had not paid duty. To arrest the Chinaman would have been a had bargain for the State, as he would escape paying poll tax, so O'Connor simply seized the goods and tied them up in a handkerchief. At about 7 p.m. when he went off duty he carried the goods with him to be stored in the Queen's warehouse at the dock. Though he was in Customs uniform the police arrested him, and detained him as a smuggler for four hours. The tide waiter was released on his identity being proved. The arresting policemen will be called upon for an exolanation.
