ANOTHER BURGLARY. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 26 March 1896
ANOTHER BURGLARY. Encouraged by a series of recent successes the burglars are again hard at work. This time they have visited Subiaco, where on Sunday night last the residence f Charles McPhee, store keeper, on the Brome-road, was broken into and ransacked. Whilst McPhee was away at church in the evening, the thief or thieves entered the building, and evidently made good use of their time. The till was found open, and postage stamps were scattered about from the drawer of the dressing table. Jewellery to the value of £20 was carried off. A lever hunting watch, some precious stones, a gold brooch set in pearls, a gold ring, and other treasures unfor tunately caught the eye of the intruders, and needless to say that in their depar ture they also took them along with them. The burglars would arpear to have been obliging to adegree, for McPhee, leaving to attend v place of worship, did not deem it necessary to lock some of the inner doors. The thieves, however, thought othn rwise, for t...

Further particulars have come to hand regarding the battle near Kassala. It appears that the Dervishes in their first attack lost only forty of their number, but in their two later attacks they lost very heavily, and it is estimated that altogether 3,000 were slain.

Telegraphic News WEST AUSTRALIA. A GOOD MINING PROSPECT. PERTH, March 24. The second lot of stuff taken from the Mount Lovett Mine by Messrs Francis Hart, R. Jones, and others excited a good deal of attention in Perth yester day. Mr J. Cole, who returned from Dandalup yesterday bore testimony to the excellent prospects which appear before the field. That the auriferous stone is not confined to one particular spot has been evidenced by the fact that a parcel of stone taken from Rawson's claim, three or four miles to the north ward assayed at the rate of 3oz 16dwt to the ton.
ACTION AGAINST MR. VENN. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 26 March 1896
ACTION AGAINST MR. VENN. The Supreme Court sat in civil juris diction yesterday morning for a few minutes. The only case that came before them was that of Wood v. Venn, in which William Byers Wood sued Harry Whittal Venn as Commissioner of Railways, claiming £250 for the al leged destruction of horses. The case had been tried before M1r Justice Hens man and a special jury. The jury failed to agree, and it was decided that the case should go to trial a second time.

GARROTTING AND ROBBERY. TWO CASES. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 26 March 1896
GARROTTING AND ROBBERY. TWO CASES. Another case of garrotting and rob bery was reported to the Fremantle police yesterday, by a man named Wil liam Leahy, about 40 years of age, re siding at Cotterloe. The circumstances of the case are exactly similar to those of Martin's case of assault, which is alleged to have taken place in the same vicinity only about a couple of hours before Martin was stuck up on Saturday last. Leahy, according to his statement was walking along Quarry-steeet near the Lunatic Asylum between 9 and 10 p.m. on Saturday, when he was suddenly set upon from behind by two men, who, after nearly choking him, robbed him of 32s Gd and a silver watch andchain. It is almost certain thatthey were the same men who assaulted and robbed Martin shortly after 11 o'clock the same evening, the description of the assailants as given by each of the victims tallying with one another.
MINERS' GRIEVENCES AT KANOWNA TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 26 March 1896
MINERS' GRIEVENCES AT KANOWNA TO THE EDITOR. SIR,- I beg to ask your powerful pen to assist us miners at Kanowna. Our stores are as dear now as when the line was only com- pleted to Southern Cross, and not satisfied with that imposition, we are getting light weight. I have it on good authority from a man who has just purchased new scales that the most of our tradespeople give light weight. To prove it he purchased goods from several of them, and in every instance the weight was deficient. Myself and mates, four in all, pay our storekeeper alone on an average £8 per fortnight, and if there is an ounce over the pound he charges for it. I really think the best thing for the miners to do is to start a Co-operative Society at once, and I shall certainly see what can be done in that direction. Is there not an Inspector of Weights and Measures in the district ? Thanking you in anticipation, I remain, yours, &c., STRAIGHT DINKUM. Kanowna, March 23.
THE MUNICIPAL COUNCIL AND ITS OFFICERS. [TO THE EDITOR.] [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 26 March 1896
1HE MUNICIPAL COUNCIL AND ITS OFFICERS. [TO THE EDITOR. SIa,-Cr Lee announced that the Town Clerk must be dismissed or he will leave the Council table. The Town Clerk has been dismissed, and I think the next best thing would be for Cr Lee to hand in his resigna tion and seek re-election. If he heard the generally expressed opinion of the ratepayers on his action he would not hesitate in doing so. Mr Bartlett, from my knowledge of him, is by no means perfect, and he lacks in a great degree the gift of being "suaviter in modo "; but still he is not a drunken scamp -he might possibly have been more popular had he been a Town Clerk of this descrip tion. So far as I can ascertain, he "ran the show " when the Councillors were enjoying the delights of a cooler climate. For stick ing to his post and for carrying out the work that the Council neglected to do, he has been given one month's notice of dis missal.-I am, &c., H. March 20, 1896.
TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 26 March 1896
TO THE EDITOR. Sia,-Re Mr R. Vine's letter in your issue of to-day, I should be obliged if you would convey to Mr R. Vine through the medium of your columns my apologies for the "deliberate lie" which emanated from me at Thursday's Council meeting, by my making use of the words " kerosene cans" instead of " zinc cases': as the material used on his structure in Hannan-street.-I am, bAc.. A. H. BARTLETT, Town Clerk. Town Clerk's Office, March 21, 1896.
