Kalgoorlie Municipal Affairs. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 26 March 1896
Kalgoorlie Municipal Affairs. [From MINER, March 19.] THE Town Council have aroused them selves from their apathetic state to the extent of deciding to hold a meeting this evening. A certain amount of laxiness is to be expected in the manage went of public affairs on these fields. The pursuit of wealth is too hot to allow men much time to devote themselves to the interests of the community generally, and besides the majority of the residents are not yet sufficiently settled in the town to feel any keen desire to advance the public weal. Allowing for all this we would be lacking in our duty to the public were we not to ~epress agreement with the general opinion that now exists that the Council have been woe fully lax in their duty. We have on many occasions praised the splendid work they have done as a Board of Health, and we have no wisl: to detract from their labors in the least in that most important respect, but the Council cannot rest for ever in a progressive community such as ...
A School for Kalgoorlie. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 26 March 1896
A School for Kalgoorlie. IT appears incredible that a town of such size and importance as Kalgoorlie shoul. be neglected by the Government as regards school accommodation. The only way to account for the absence of a school here is that it must have be'n an oversight on the part of the Education Department, as towns in the colony in which the need has not been so very urgent have lately been provided with schools. In December last we advo cated in these columns the establish ment of a school in Kalgoorlie, and in that month the Mayor telegraphed to the Premier urging the erection of a school building and the appoint ment of a schoolmaster, with the result that the request was granted. and the Premier instructed the Minister of Education to take the necessary, steps at once. Since that, however, nothing has been done, althc ugh the population has considerably increased and the need has accordingly become greater. The matter, notwithstanding its great im portance to Kalgoorlie,. evide...
The Proposed Exemption. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 26 March 1896
The Proposed Exemption. [From MINER, March 19.] NOT a little consternation was aroused amongst the majority of the residents of this district by the announcement a couple of days ago that the Warden had telegraphed to the Minister of Mines, asking that a general exemption be granted on the East Coolgardie gold field during the next week, and that a holiday be given to the Warden's officials for the same term on account of the festivities to be held in Coolgardie in connection with the opening of the railway to that town. When making the announcement, we pointed out that the granting of the request would be detrimental to the interests of these fields, and that the persons in the dis trict are few and far between who are desirous of giving up work to attend next week's celebration in Coolgardie, more especially as in a couple of months there will be another and greater celebration to mark the com pletion of the line to Kalgoorlie. Yes terday a telegram was posted on the door of the W...

Black Flag. March 20. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 26 March 1896
Black Flag. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) March 20. ,The violent storm which burst over this place last Friday was preceded by intense heat, but the distant peals of thunder and vivid lightning did not prepare us for the suddenness of the cyclone. The thunder, which came like the rattle of a hundred gatling guns, the lightning with its thousand forks, and the rain, or rather, torrents of water, surpassed anything experienced by the oldest inhabitant. In a few minutes tents were converted into ribbons, and dry lakes into sheets of water. 'The latter have since be come the resorts of ducks and frogs. Music is discoursed by the latter without an in terval during the night. The effect of these rains has been to almost stop traffic by teams, and it looks at present as though we were within measurable distance of afamine. The abundance of water which may be found in all directions is a good thing for prospectors and "speckers," but it will retard shaft sinking and other kinds of develop m...

Unseaworthy Vessels. [BY TELEGRAPH.] MELBOURNE, March 19. The Board appointed to enquire into the charges made by Mr Sangster, M.L.A., against Marine Board officials and others for neglect of duty, has resumed its sittings. The condition of the s.s. Wendouree was further enquired into, and evidence was taken even more startling than yesterday. A boiler-maker who was engaged repairing the vessel declared that there was a large vent in the bulkhead, which was supposed to be water-tight. Holes could be seen on the other side. John McKenzie, marine surveyor and master mariner, had been 30 years at sea, and out of that he was 11 years in command. He had heard the evidence as to the state of the Wendouree. If she were half as bad as stated she ought to have been called back and stopped, as she was totally unfit to go outside the Heads. A heavy sea would burst the deck in. The Wendouree was built in 1882, and had never been exami ned by a Lloyd'ssurveyor since. Taking the evidence in globo...
