HURRICANE IN MELBOURNE. MELBOURNE, March 16. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 19 March 1896
HURRICANE IN MEL BOURNE. (BY TELEGRAPH.) MELBOURNE, March 16. A terrific gale and thunderstorm broke over the metropolis this afternoon, working destruction throughout the city and suburbs, and, in one instance, caus ing death. Shortly after four o'clock ble Ak clouds gathered and half an hour after a strong wind sprang up, increas ing in severity until it reached 75 miles an hour. This force has been un approached in Melbourne, according to the Government astronomer, for many years. The gale was accompanied by a tremendous heavy downpour which deluged the streets and in the low-lying suburbs the water was over the door steps. In many instances the damage done was extensive. A large hoarding next to the Australian Church was blown down, and a young woman, who was hurrying along the street, was felled to the ground and buried beneath the debris. Tramway officials, with the aid of a crowbar, managed to raise the mass sufficiently to get her out, but, on admission to the hospital, life...
DISCUSSION IN PARLIAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 19 March 1896
DISCUSSION IN PARLIAMENT. Last evening, in the course of a de bate in the House of Commons on the operations ih the Soudan, Mr Curzon said that influences were working in Africa that would possibly prove a. danger to the peace of Europe. Sir Win. Harcourt expressed himself as not opposed to Great Britain taking action as regards the Soudan if the operations were limited, but he thought there would be danger in accepting any invitation to adopt a forward policy. The Opposi tion would steadfastly oppose mak ing aany attempt to reconquer the Soudan. Mr A. J. Balfour said it was unlikely that any Power would object to Great Britain's proceedings on the Nile, and ridiculed the idea of the affair resulting in European complications. The. London " Times " approves of a' gradual forward policy in the Soudan.

Interview with Mr Parsons. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 19 March 1896
Interview with Mr Parsons. " Mr Harold G. Parsons, a member of the influential firm of solicitors, Sinclair, Par sons & Mann, of Kalgoorlie, has recently arrived in London. Mr Parsons, who was well-known in Press circles some years back as a brilliant leader writer on the " National Observer," under Mr W. E. Henley's editor ship, has for the last three years been in Western Australia. He arrived upon *the goldfields almost simultaneously with the first rush, and no man is better acquainted with the history and prospects of the fields than he." " West Australia is a charming little colony. But it consists, for practical or London purposes, of the two fields, Coolgar die and East Coolgardie. And the greater of these is the East Coolgardie. Good times in Western Australia really began when the Lake View and the Boulder mines began crushing. For a long time (in the local phrase) we in Hannan's 'did a perish.' There was no money in the town-scar cely a spare £+i note. It was the ...
Meeting in Glasgow. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 19 March 1896
Meeting in Glasgow. During his recent visit to Glasgow Mr Edmund Mitchell addressed a big meeting at the Accountants' Hall on the WV.A. Gold fields. He indicated in a general way the different classes of property on the Cool gardie goldfields. First, there were the phenomenally rich outcrops, such as the Londonderry, the Wealth of Nations, and Bayley's. Throughout the Coolgandie fields there were lines and lines of true fissure lodes, impregnated with ironstone. Then the whole country about Hanman's, for 20 miles around, had been pegged out, not for quartz, but for a formation of quartz, iron stone, and decomposed schist, a sort of igneous rock. Some of these formations were COft wide, and one block which he knew was 6ifift wide. In such a mine as the Great Boulder these formations had yielded month after month returns varying from 9oz to )oz to the ton; and he could safely say that there were five or six Great Boulders within five or six miles of the township of Hannan. This format...
Bishop Gibney. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 19 March 1896
Bishop Gibney. [From KALGOORLIE MINER of Satur- day, March 14.] This afternoon His Lordship the Catholic Bishop of Perth will arrive in Kalgoorlie on an official visit. Some five months ago Dr Gibney came to the town, which was then small, and almost insignificant in comparison with its present size and importance. His Lordship, with the foresight for which he is noted, readily recognised even then its great future, and at once took steps for the establishment of a priest and the erection of a church. The Catholics of the town and the vicinity readily pro- cured the necessary funds, with the re- sult that a handsome and substantial structure has just been completed. This building will be consecrated to-morrow by the Bishop, who will no doubt be gratified to find how thoroughly the rapid growth of the town has justified the undertaking. His Lordship will be accompanied by two sisters of the nurs- ing order of St. John of God, the Irish branch of the famous French order of Bon Secours...
The Transfer Regulation. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 19 March 1896
.1 he Transfer Regulation. IT is sincerely to be hoped that the apathy in regard to the public and politi cal questions, which seems to be a characteristic of a community all absor bed in the search for gold, will not infect the members of the Kalgoorlie Transfer Committee. They have done admirable work already, for it is solely through their painstaking exertions that the various centres on the West Australian goldfields have taken up the agitation against the Wittenoom interpretation of clause 11. To the Kalgoorlie committee therefore the other centres will look for advice as to future action. Again-at the risk of being accused of vain repeti tion-we would point out that the pre sent transfer procedure eats into the very vitals of any progress in the mining industry. Therefore to stand still now is to lose ground. The result of last week's deputation 'is most uns4tis factory, and were it not for the belief that the Premier is entirely with the fields in the demand for the local re...
