Accused pleaded guilty. Corporal Bonnor sa...

At the Quarterly Sessions to-day the case was continued against Thomas hugh Jennings, charged with having stolen gold-bearing quartz valued at £70, the property of Bayley's No. I South Mine on March 2.

Whez. they were going to fire a shot he picked up the specimens in the parer and put them in his shirt. Afterwards he put some of the specimens in a billycan, and in tended to give them to Mr Pollard, the underground manager. He had no intention of stealing the stone. The presiding magistrate said the question was simply-Did the accused bring the stone to the surface with the intention of handing it over to the proper persons, or with the inten tion of converting it to his own use. The jury returned a verdict Qf guilty of larceny, and recommended the prisoner to merc...
THE SEARCH FOR "SLIPPERY JACK." THE MARAUDER STILL AT LARGE. SYDNEY, March 17. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 19 March 1896
'THE SEARCH FOR " SLIP- PERY JACK." THE MARAUDER STILL AT LARGE. (BY TELEGRAPH.) SVDNEY, March 17. For the last month the police have been engaged in a hunt after " Slippery Jack, " the bush-marauder, who, in the ranges near Bathurst, successfully escaped from a party of armed police at whom he threw stones and who replied by shots from their rifles. The major- ity of the police returned to their homes on Saturday night after weeks of hard unsuccessful work. Two sergeants, seven constables, and two black trackers participated in the search, which covered the rough and hilly country around Ben Bullen, the Tuson River, and Capertee. On Wednesday night, while engaged in a search on the Capertee side, word was brought to the police that a further robbery had been com- mitted at a laborer's hut, Crown Creek, within two miles of where the force had camped the previous night. The police started early on Thursday morning, but though finding tracks round the hut, were unable to follow them. ...

A SHIPPING DISASTER. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 26 March 1896
A SHIPPING DISASTER. During the gale which swept the coast on Saturday, the ketch Petrel was swept ashore at the Bellinger River. She was of 60 tons burden. To-day the ketch has become a total wreck. All the cargo, including the personal effects of the crew, was lost. In getting ashore a woman and six children had a narrow escape from drowning. They were being carried from the ketch to the shore in the pilot boat, when the boat was swamped by a heavy sea. The occupants, however, were finally brought safely to land. The tug Harrington was also dr iven ashore almost on the same spot. She is now on the beach and is expected to become a total wreck.
THE PUBLIC HOSPITAL. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 26 March 1896
THE PUBLIC HOSPITAL. TO THE EDITOR. Sir,-It is my painful duty to record a scene at the public hospital on Saturday last, 21st inst. I was a fellow passenger with a man from Bardoc who was suffering great pain from his leg, which, as he stated, lie was most likely to lose, as the pain prevented him having any sleep for about three weeks, and his leg was then turned quite black. The coach driver, in a most humane manner, drove him direct to the hospital, but on arrival was informed by a gentleman who appeared to have a big say in the reception of patients to the institution that no person under any circumstances could be admitted without Dr O'Meehan's authority, and as the doctor was absent from the hospital this man could not be admitted. I asked to allow him to be provided with some place of rest until the doctor's arrival, as I believed the case to be a serious one, but it was all to no purpose. The coach was driven away with the poor sufferer-a victim to fcrmality perhaps not bef...
Correspondence. [The Editor does not hold himself responsible for opinions expressed by correspondents.] MUNICIPAL COUNCIL. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 26 March 1896
Correspondence. [The Editor does not hold himself respon sible for opinions expressed by corres pondents. ]' MUNICIPAL COUNCIL. TO THE EDITOR. Sir-In reading over the Council report in your paper this morning I see that the Town Clerk has seen fit to publicly make use of my name. Had he done so in a truthful manner I should not have objected, but as he had the audacity to stand up before the Council and tell them a deliberate lie I think it is my duty to contradict the statement. He there stated that I had erected a building composed of kerosene cans. Now, Sir, I am prepared to make a donation to the local hospital of £10 if he can prove his assertion. If he cannot, if he is a man let him do like wise. For the information of those whom it may concern I may say I had not the slightest intention of using kerosene tins, neither did I state so to him. I will give you the true facts of the case. I am erecting premises in Hannan-street, and not being able to get the necessary iron for a n...
THE BANQUET. SPEECHES BY THE GOVERNOR AND PREMIER. 10.20 p.m. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 26 March 1896
THE BANQUET. SPEECHES BY THE GOVERNOR AND PREMIER. 10.20 p.m. At the dinner this evening in the tempo rary iron building adjoining Kennedy's hotel there were 450 people present in eve ning dress. The Mayor presided, being sup ported on his right by the Governor and on his left by the Premier, while all the Ministers, members of Parliament, mayors, &c., present were distributed right and left. The toast of the Governor was proposed by Mr John Wilkie, the railway contractor, who referred to His Excellency in eulogistic terms, thanking him for accepting the joint invitation of himself and the Mayor. The Governor, on rising to respond, was most flatteringly received. It was some moments before he was allowed to speak. He thanked them for the warm and hearty reception they had accorded him. It was impossible for the colonies to produce a gathering on a more important occasion than the opening of the goldfields line. After he had opened the line he sent a cable to Mr Chamberlain (...
The Town Council and Its Officers. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 26 March 1896
The Town Council and Its Officers. AFTER the Town Council for many months had grossly neglected the duties for which they received and accepted the confidence of the ratepayers, a meeting was held on Thursday night which was attended by only three of the seven councillors, and the trio, who formed but a bare quorum, did not hesitate to adopt the drastic and sweeping course of giving the Town Clerk and the Sanitary Inspector a month's notice of dismissal. The grounds on which these two officers are suddenly deprived of the means by which they live by such paragons of ex cellence in the performance of their public duties are that there are com plaints about the sanitary state of the town, and that the Town Clerk is " over officious." These objections are absurd and weak in the extreme. The town is not absolutely free from sanitary nuisances, and no town is perfectly clean in that respect, but it is infinitely superior to most towns on the fields and a credit to the Town Clerk and Sani...
Warden's Courts. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 26 March 1896
Warden's Courts. THE qualifications . necessary for a Warden are so multifarious that it is not surprising to find that office but very rarely filled by a man sufficiently able to inspire the confidence of the pub lic. To satisfactorily perform the duties of the office conscientiousness must be combined with clearness of judgment and firmness, while, in addition, a know ledge of the law and of legal procedure is absolutely necessary in order to decide the numerous intricate legal points that arise and silence badgering lawyers. Beside all these qualification, a Warden, as the resident of the district of which he has charge, should be guarded in his actions, and conduct himself so as to inspire universal respect. Often cases are tried at Warden's Courts that are quite as difficult to settle and fully as im portant as any in the higher courts. Im mense sums are frequently involved, and Wardens should, like Ca'sar's wife, be above suspicion. Most wardens, we be lieve, do their best, an...
The Kalgoorlie Railway. OFFICIAL OPENING OF THE COOLGARDIE SECTION. COOLGARDIE, 23rd March. 11 A.M. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 26 March 1896
The Kalgoorlie Railway. OFFICIAL OPENING OF THE COOLGARDIE SECTION. [BY TELEGRAPH.] (FROM OUR SPECIAL REPORTER.) COOLGARDIE, 23rd March. 11 A.M. Coolgardie is determined to celebrate fit tingly the opening of the first section of the Kalgoorlie railway. Large numbers of men were employed by the Corporation all Sunday in sweeping up the. streets and gravelling anew all the footpaths in the main street, with the result that the whole town looks very spick and span, but wonderfully un comfortable, the rough gravel on the paths annoying pedestrians terribly. All Smuday, and far into the night gangs of men were employed in hanging festoons of foliage on the telegraph poles on each side of the main street, and stringing lines of small flags across the intersection of the streets. The most successful effort of the decorations is the trophy of flags of all nations at the in tersection of Bayley and Hunt streets, backed by banks of foliage. The effect is good, despite the fact that it chokes...
Kalgoorlie Municipal Council. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 26 March 1896
Kalgoorlie Municipal council. The following correspondence has been handed to us for publication: Kalgoorlie, March 20, 1896. To His Worship the Mayor and Councillors of Kalgoorlie. Gentlemen-With reference to a resolution on a casual motion brought forward by Councillor Lee at last night's meeting of the Council, and which resolution relative to the dismissal of myself and the Sanitary Inspec ton, was declared carried by you, I beg to apply to you to hold a meeting of the Coun cil at an early date in April, when probably Councillors McKenzie and Nethercott could attend to consider the advisability of rescind ing this motion on the following grounds : I. That no notice was given by Councillor Lee relative to bringing forward his motion. It. That the Standing Orders were never suspended at the meeting. III. That the grounds for the dismissal in consideration of the facts placed before you in the schedule attached are very weak. IV. That the Council has not, for the space of five mont...
