Southern Cross Mining. GREAT UNKNOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 31 May 1913
Southern Cross Mining. GREAT UNKNOWN. &nbsp; Tbe Great Unknown at Marda milled &nbsp; 112 tons tons for a return of 698ozs. of bul- &nbsp; ion valued at £3/10/ per ounce, or about £20 per ton. A larger tonnage would have beea treated but the boilers had to be inspected, and a clean-up was effected whilst the inspector over- hauled the boilers. The 0wners of the Babylonian milled 26 tons as a trial parcel, and recovered 10 ozs. The Eclipse milled 114 tons for a &nbsp; return of 86ozs. This is better than &nbsp; the last crushing. The tributers on the Great Levia- than milled two parcels during the week in order to terminate the arrangements which were in existence. One 40 ton parcel gave a yield of 8ozs. 0dwts., &nbsp; and the one of 15 tons returned 15oz. 9dwts. Now a fresh start has been made, and Messrs. J. Sweeney and Ewen McDonnell are joining Messrs. H. Field and P. Mere for the purpose of working the lease under a tribute agreeme...
Our Eastern Letter. Sydney, May 13th, 1913. The Boilermakers. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 31 May 1913
Our Eastern Letter. Sydney, May 18th, 1913. The Boilermakers. We are to have that navy, after all. The boilerbangers have graciously con- sented to come to terms with the ship- &nbsp; wrights, and work is again being re- &nbsp; sumed. After the shipwrights have &nbsp; made the templates, the boilermakers &nbsp; are to be allowed to mark off the places where the rivets are to go. If this could not be arranged, it is under- &nbsp; stood that the union was determined that there should be no Australian navy. Union views seem to be sadly &nbsp; lacking in perspective.
NORTH YILGARN. CORINTHIAN NORTH. BULLPINCH PROPRIETARY. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 31 May 1913

The Darwin Strike. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 31 May 1913
The Darwin Strike. &nbsp; &nbsp; Only a section of the Darwin men have returned to work. But as the strike is discountenanced by other "Labor" bodies, and will, therefore, not be supported by them, it cannot &nbsp; last long. It has already been deprived of its most sensational feature. Mr. Rylands, a high official of the Terri- tory, who is in receipt of a salary of £800 a year, was a member of the Australian Workers' Union, and, as such, was compelled to "come out" with the rest, and was out on picket duty. He has since been graciously permitted to resign from the A.W.U., and to resume work which he was ap- pointed to perform.
A Million. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 31 May 1913
A MILLION. A stroke of romantic good fortune has befallen a jewellery salesman named Wirth. A wealthy uncle of the same name, who lived in the United States, has died intestate, leaving, it is said, a fortune of four million ster- ling to be divided among his heirs. The share of the Sydney man is to be one fourth. He has been ''interviewed," of course. Perhaps the most interest ing feature elicited was that he was not nearly ready as some others to &nbsp; accept the sensational story as gospel truth. When he was asked whether he had given up his billet, which, by to way, he has filled very creditably for some years, he replied, "Give up a certainty for a probability? Not me! When I get the solid cash in my hand, I'll throw up my present job. Till then, I'm just plain Phillip Wirth, ready to sell jewellery to anyone. " Another feature of some interest is that by virtue of relationship to the deceased millionaire, the family of Mr. Peter Wirth, of Toowoomba, it is said, will c...
The Speaker. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 31 May 1913
The Speaker. &nbsp; The action of Mr. Willis, the Speaker of the Legislative Assembly, in dis- charging four of the messengers at Parliament House, has kept that ec- centric gentleman in the foreground. He states that they are superfluous, and therefore not needed. It seems strange to make a discovery of this &nbsp; kind at so late a stage of the recess. Some of the men have been in the &nbsp; service 12 or 13 years, and it was some- thing of a shock to be told that they would not be needed after the end of the month. Mr. Cann, the present Treasurer, who stepped down from the Speakership to make room for Mr. Willis, says that he recognised that the &nbsp; staff was overmanned, and that he had intended to rectify matters by ab- staining from making any fresh ap- pointments. This would have been the more considerate procedure, though it might have taken some time to pro- duce the designed result. But, Mr. Cann points out, Mr. Willis has made fresh apoin...
A Flamboyant Utterance. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 31 May 1913
A Flamboyant Utterance. A statement made by Mr. James Allen, the New Zealand Minister for Defence, though evidently prompted by patriotic motives, has exposed him to some severe criticism on this side. Addressing the Canadian Club, at Win- nipeg, he said that if Canada should be menaced, New Zealand would be able to send an expeditionary army of 80,000 men to aid in her defence. The disparity between the resources of New Zealand — or, for that matter, of all Australasia — and those of any na- tion which might conceivably attack Canada, has made the flamboyant ut- terance seem rather ridiculous. How- ever, when the Minister again sets foot "on his native heath" he may be able to present the incident in another light. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;
Ceylon and Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 31 May 1913
Ceylon and Australia. " There is nothing grown in Cey- &nbsp; lon that cannot be grown in Austra- lia,'' says Sir Rider Haggard, the ap- parent implication being that Aus- tralians should go in for tropical pro- ductions. But, like many others who generalise on these topics, he omits to show how the difference in the cost of labor is to be overcome. Every thing that is produced in Ceylon — or anywhere else— is produced by labor. A laborer in Ceylon will work for a year for much less money than would serve, as a " living wage " in Aus- &nbsp; tralia for a month. How can there &nbsp; &nbsp; be any competition on commercial lines under such a condition? Australia &nbsp; has her own productions — wool, meat, &nbsp; and wheat— and, so far, they have &nbsp; &nbsp; proved payable, even at the current high rate of wages. It is being asked whether it would not be more states- manlike to encourage development on the line of our o...
Sydney, May 20th, 1913. Profoundly Disquieting. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 31 May 1913
Sydney, May 20th, 1913. &nbsp; &nbsp; Profoundly Disquieting. &nbsp; Judge Heydon, like Justice Higgins, &nbsp; is a very remarkable figure in the judicial world of Australia. Despite their high culture and intellectual training, some will say, because of them, these gentlemen firmly believe &nbsp; that it is possible for the award of a judicial tribunal to supersede with ad- vantage the private judgment of em- ployer and employed. They are both whole-souled believers in "collective &nbsp; bargaining," and each is honestly working in his own court to administer the (?) which have been enacted on this &nbsp; assumption. No one can accuse them of the smug hypocrisy which descants to fashionable congregations on the &nbsp; "sins against Christian, brotherliness " &nbsp; &nbsp; which are perpetrated on the poor and downtrodden. But somehow or other the woes of the poor and downtrodden have faded out of the h...
Salient Features. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 31 May 1913
Salient Features. &nbsp; &nbsp; These men, his Honor declared, were &nbsp; filling positions which made them the envy of numbers of their fellow citi- zens. Yet they had acted like spoiled &nbsp; children. His Honor is not so dull as to fail to see that the vices of spoiled children are more properly chargeable to those who spoil them than to their unhappy victims. But that belongs to another story. He pointed out that half a million of the railway surplus has already been donated to the rail- way servants in increased wages and &nbsp; &nbsp; salaries, and that another half million, is likely to go the same way: This is pure generosity on the part of the State, for there is not a billet in the service that could not be readily filled over and over again by "children" &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; who are not " spoiled," but who are &nbsp; &nbsp; glad to accept current terms of ser- &nbsp; vice. Bu...
Preaching and Practice. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 31 May 1913
Preaching and Practice &nbsp; Mr. Carmichael the Minister for &nbsp; Education, in one respect, at least, &nbsp; practices what he preaches. When a &nbsp; &nbsp; deputation waited on him to ask Gov- &nbsp; ernment assistance for the Symphony &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Orchestra, he deplored, at considerable length, the contemptuous indifference &nbsp; shown by wealthy people in the city to this excellent educative musical or- &nbsp; ganisation. The sum needed to keep it going would be ,to many of them, &nbsp; the merest bagatelle; yet it was in (?) But, having got in this bit of good &nbsp; "business" for the approaching State &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; "campaign," he relented to the ex- &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; tent of promising that if nine others could be found to do likewise; he would h...
Ardlethan. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 31 May 1913
rArdlethan. &nbsp; &nbsp; News from the; Ardlethan tin field &nbsp; &nbsp; is considered to be slightly more en- couraging. Hundreds of claims have &nbsp; been pegged out; and dignified by more or less high-sounding titles. The com-- pany promoters, of course, have been in their glory. The art of conjuring golden sovereigns from very uninvit- ing tracts of barren country is being cultivated with all the old-time as- &nbsp; &nbsp; siduity, aided by the improvements &nbsp; &nbsp; which long experience in the sutdy of human credulity has enabled the ex- ploiters thereof to effect. The natural question is, is there really one claim &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; out of the whole;number which, on the &nbsp; evidence available, earr reasonably be &nbsp; &nbsp; believed to possess a prospect of be- coming payable. The reply is, "Yes, undoubtedly there is one." It is the Carpathia a...
Coolgardie Municipal Council. COUNCIL DOINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 31 May 1913
===================== &nbsp; &nbsp; Coolgardie Municipal Council. COUNCIL DOINGS. &nbsp; &nbsp; Councillors are naturally far from satisfied with the poor support accord- ed Coolgardie interests in both the &nbsp; Legislature and the Governments de- partments, and at the last meeting of the Civic Fathers, Cr. Faahan again drew attention to the construction of the new reservoir at Kalgoorlie, where another pumping station is required, instead of the hills of Coolgardie. Cr. Faahan realised it was too late to do anything in the matter, but his desire &nbsp; was to emphasise the fact that the perpetual cost of an additional pumping station has been decided upon instead &nbsp; of a gravitation scheme from Cool- gardie, and he warmly condemned such a policy. Mr. W. McDowall, M.L.A., wrote on this subject to the Council stating the department was afraid of a breakdown between Coolgardie and Kalgoorlie, and conveying Ministers' opinio...
Prosdectors' and Leaseholders' Association. AFFILIATION CONFERENCE. FIELD AT COOLGARDIE, JANUARY 15, 16, and 17, 1913. OFFICIAL RECORD OF PROCCEDING. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 31 May 1913
Prospectors & Lease- &nbsp; Holders' Association. AFFILIATION CONFERENCE. &nbsp; HELD AT COOLGARDIE, JANUARY &nbsp; 15, 16, and 17, 1913. OFFICIAL RECORD OF PRO- CEEDING. The delegates from the various branches of Prospectors and Lease- holders' Associations of this State to the affiliation Conference arrived by arrangement in Coolgardie either &nbsp; &nbsp; January 14th or 15th, all being in at attendance by the morning of Wednes- &nbsp; day, January 15. They were met and welcomed by representatives of the Coolgardie branch.
CIVIC RECEPTION. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 31 May 1913
CIVIL RECEPTION At 10.30 a.m. on the Wednesday, the &nbsp; Mayor of Coolgardie (Mr. D. McPher- &nbsp; son) accorded the delegates a civic re- ception at the Council Chambers, when those present included Messrs. C. McDowall, Munsie, Mullaney and Foley, M's.L.A., and the Inspector for &nbsp; &nbsp; Mines ( Mr. Crabbe). The delegates in attendance were as follows: — Cool- gardie, MR. Tindal and Mr. Petcr W. &nbsp; Kelly ,vice-president of the branch; South Yilgarn, Messrs. Kernick and &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Delbridge; Leonora, Messrs/ Jas. Grif- iths and Lynch; Kalgoorlie, Messrs.

The Mayor, in proposing the toast &nbsp; of the delegates, extended a hearty wel- &nbsp; &nbsp; come to Coolgardi...
THE CONFERENCE. First Day.—Wednesday, January 15. Chairman. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 31 May 1913
THE CONFERENCE. First Day. — Wednesday, January 15. Chairman. On the motion of Mr. Kernick (South Yilgarn), seconded by Mr. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Wertheimer (Lindley), Mr.W. M. &nbsp; Faahan was unanimously elected Chair- man. In tendering his thanks, the chair- man said that the election as chair- man of the Conference did not give him any right to the more permanent office of president. That offer would &nbsp; &nbsp; have to be elected after they had &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; dealt with the question 0f affiliation. He pointed out that the delegates had a big agenda paper before them em- bracing matters 0f grave importance and he urged the Conference to be &nbsp; reasonable in its demands, and be care- ful that what they did ask for was just and fair to all parties. The Minister for Mines had said that if the Con- ference laid down any scheme that would serve to guide him, he would do his best for them. He ur...
Second Day.—Thursday January 16. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 31 May 1913
Second Day.— Thursday January 16. The president took the chair at 9.45 a.m. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; The committee submitted it's report on the rules and agenda paper. The Agenda Paper. &nbsp; Non-Political Association. Mr. Wertheimer withdrew the Lin- den motion in favor of constituting the association a political body. Co-operative Batteries. Mr. W. Berry (Kalgoorlie) moved, "That the co-operative system should &nbsp; &nbsp; replace State administration of Gov- ernment batteries." The mover urged that better results would be obtained, under a co-opera- tive system. The mills would be run more cheaply, and the charges would be reduced in consequence. Mr. Taylor (Ora Banda) seconded thc motion, and Mr. Delbridge (South &nbsp; Yilgarn) supported. Mr. P. Kelly said that whilst there &nbsp; was a lot to commend the proposal, he would be sorry to see the batteries pass out of the han...
ADDRESS BY THE MINISTER FOR MINES. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 31 May 1913
ADDRESS BY THE MINISTER &nbsp; FOR MINES. The Minister attended the Confer- ence at shortly after 12.30 p.m. on Friday at the conclusion of the busi- ness of the morning seminar. The president stated that the Min- ister had come to address the Con- ference on the mining industry gen- &nbsp; &nbsp; erally, and it would have been hard to find a more representative gather- ing. They could not expect Mr. Collins to make any definite statement just then, but he would meet a deputation from the Conference at 5 o'clock that afternoon, when the resolutions would be submittod to him. The Minister was received with ap- plause. Mr. Collier, after thanking the Con- ference for the welcome extended him, said he recognised the representative character of the gathering, and he was sure that if such meetings were held annually, the attendance would be &nbsp; larger. The matters which had been discussed were of great interest to the whole of the State, for mining was ...
AN ADVENTURE OF A YANKEE IN LIVERPOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 31 May 1913
AN ADVENTURE OF A YANKEE IN LIVERPOOL. &nbsp; _______ A commercial traveller tells an amusing story which he heard on his rounds. It is about a Yankee who on his first visit to England recently landed in Liverpool, and proceeding straight to London, put up at one of the large hotels. In due course he found himself at the table d'hote dinner, and a waiter approached him bearing a plate of soup. "No tha-a-nks," he drawled, "guess I won't take any soup ; bring me fish." &nbsp; &nbsp; The waiter retired, only to be fol- lowed a few minutes later by another also armed with a plate of soup. "Take it away,"snapped our &nbsp; friend ; "don't want it ; got no use for it," and his command was obey- ed, but then, to his disgust, then appeared on the horizon still another knight of the napkin, and still an other plate of soup. "Oh, goldurn all Britishers," shouted the now irate Yankee ; "d'ye think we live on soup where I was raised ?" &nbsp; &nbs...
THE POWER OF WILL. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 31 May 1913
THE POWER OF WILL. "Hypnotism, my dear sir, is a magnificent, wonderful thing!" said &nbsp; the visitor to his friend the hypno- tist. "That exhibition you gave &nbsp; last night was shockingly convincing, &nbsp; sir. You are possesscdwith a rare &nbsp; power that is given to few men to display. You wield a mighty and &nbsp; unseen force, sir.'' "I'm'glad you found it so inter- &nbsp; esting," returned the hypnotist. &nbsp; &nbsp; "Yes ; with all due modesty, I think I may say that I can make people do anything.In the presence of a &nbsp; &nbsp; hypnotist such as I, any person, no matter how strongwilled, may be- &nbsp; come a slave. All I want is a slight &nbsp; acquaintance with my 'subjects,' and I have them under complete sub- &nbsp; &nbsp; jection. It is simply useless for &nbsp; them to pit their wills against mine, &nbsp; they can do nothing with me....
