Political Reforms. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 26 March 1896

Political Reforms. FEW, if any, can honestly deny that West Australia sorely needs political reformation. It is the most backward colony as regards politics in the Aus tralasian group, but the quickest or the best way to effect the desired reforms is not by bringing about the downfall of the present Government as has of late been so warmly advocated, particularly by men who may reasonably be suspected of coveting the seats of the present Ministry. A dissolution, with a general election at the present time, would be productive of practically no benefit. At least ten new seats should be first created for the goldfields, and there should also be a re-distribution of the electoral districts. No more absurd anomaly could exist than, that whilg the electoral district of Yilgarn with an estimated population of 30,000, mostly adult males, has only one representative, there are members in the Assembly representing constituencies of only 24 electors (Gascoyne) ; 37 electors (De Grey); 26 elec...

ARRIVAL OF THE VIC& -REGAL PARTY. THE GOVERNOR'S SPEECH. 6.15 p.m. At noon to-day, the train containing the Vice-Regal Party, drew up at the temporary platform erected almost in a line with Elliott's Hotel. The train comprised ten carriages, including the Governor's state carriage and the Ministerial carriage. The Governor's party comprised the Governor, Lady Smith, Miss Hilda Smith, Mr Alex. Matheson, Captain Arthur St Leger, and Lieutenant Gerard Smith, A's.D.C. The Premier was accompanied by his colleagues, Mr Burt, Attorney-General, Mr Wittenoon, Minister for Mines, Mr Richardson, Minister for Lands, and Mr . F. H. Piesse, the newly appointed Minister for Public Works. There was a big crowd of members of both Houses, including Messrs Hackett and Venn, late Minister of Railways. A large crowd of at least a thousand was present, but the re ception was most informal, as the freight train monopolised the temporary platform. The Governor's party had to be lifted from the carr...

Cross-Examination of Witnesses. IN THE WARDEN'S COURT. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 26 March 1896

Cross-Examination of Witnesses. IN THE WARDEN'S COURT. During the hearing of the forfeiture case Court v. May on Friday afternoon Mr Pilkington, who appeared for the plaintiff, strongly objected to the manner in which Mr Hare was cross-examining a witness named Cross. The witness had given evi dence that the lease in question had not been worked full handed on certain days. He worked on the adjoining lease, and was able to see what was done. Mr Hare : How much do you get for com ing here? Witness : My expenses. Mr Hare : What s your game ? Witness : I don't understand you. Mr Hare: Do you make a practice of act ing as a spy on other people's business? Witness : I think it a shame that the lease was not worked when there were plenty of men wanting work. Mr Pilkington : Your Worship I protest against Mr Hare's style of cross-examina tion. The witness has given his evidence in a fair way, and Mr Hare attempts to imputc improper motives to him. It is wrong to accuse the witness of spyin...

Send Off and Welcome. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 26 March 1896

Send Off and Welcome. A pleasant gathering took place at the Kalgurli Stock Exchange on Thursday after noon, to give a send-off to Messrs J. G. Sands and T. L. Hair, on the occasion of their de parture for the eastern colonies. There was a great gathering of old identities of the field, and Mr M. H. Jephson, the first War den of the field. occupied the chair. The Chairman, in proposing the health of " Our Guests," said in Mr Sands the district recognised an old friend whose mission in the eastern colonies was to marry a wife, while Mr Hair was leaving for a well-deser ved holiday. Mr Sands had worked long and well for t e bank he served, and the public, whom he had ever been willing to oblige. In the rougher and earlier days his kindness had been extreme, and the old hands could not allow him to depart on his joyous mission without giving him a send-off and a substan tial token of their esteem. Mr Hair was a later arrival, but his many services as secre tary of the Kalgurli Exchange...

CABLEGRAMS. LONDON, March 17, 7 p.m. The truth or otherwise of the accu sation has not yet been proved that was brought in the German Reichatag by Herr Rebel, a leading socialist, against Dr Peters, the African ex plorer, who had been acting as the German Government's agent on the East Coast of Africa.

Clement Ja rrett, secretary of the Alliance Marine Insurance Company, stated he was connected with the Underwriters Association. Captain McKenzie was dismissed from the service of the Association for dishonest valu ation of the Golden Crown and his drunken habits. Captain McKenzie, re-called, said he was told a dozen times to be careful in the' came of the Julia Percy, and to avoid friction with the shipowners. Had he been an offlcr of the Government he would have prevented vessels going to sea. The Sarah Ann, barque belonging to $ir James Patterson, was repor ted by him to be seaworthy to save friction. He never altered his opinion that it was pos sible to make rotten ships float by re-copper ing. He was obliged to report she was fit for sea, or otherwise he would have been dis missed.

The Storyteller. SAVE MY JACK. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 26 March 1896

The Storyteller. SAVE MY JACK. Br1 WVILLAM B. TIREBUCK, Author of " Dorrie," "Sweetheart Gwen," and "Miss Grace, of All Souls." It was pay-time up in Dean's cabinet maker's workshop-the first Saturday after the funeral of Dan Gale. Instead of the men leaving the place to its usual Saturday after noon loneliness they turned from the office cpy-window, glanced at their money, and leisurely added their presence to the mute little groups clustered about the stall-like space between the two work benches. On a dingy tool chest that was under a window, and between the two benches, sat the black cat of the workshop, pawing her ears. and purring in the sunshine and silence -perched with strange significance upon the central object of interest that day. Tenser's attitude on the old chest, indeed, was humorous in its familiarity as she pawed and purred; but only the apprentices were free enough front old associations to smile at her. The older the men the more grim was their sympathetic demean...

Items of News. Mr C. A. Ring, the well-known Adelaide broker! arrived on a visit to the district on Thursday. We are pleased to state that Nurse Cameron, who was injured by a fall down a hole near the town, has recovered. Mr Percy Fielding will take over his new duties as Warden of the North-East Cool gardie Goldfields on the 1st prox. On Saturday night a very large flight of swans passed over the town going north. This would seem to indicate that there must be large quantities of water in that direction. Mr 3. H. Wittenoom, Minister of Mines, intends visiting Kalgoorlie this week. He does not intend to go round the goldfields on this visit, but hopes to be able to do so at some future time. On Saturday, the Mayor received the fol lowing telegram from the Governor's Private Secretary :-" His Excellency sends hearty thanks for invitation, but as he returns here on Friday he must defer the pleasure of a visit to Kalgoorlie till a later period."

THE INTRODUCTION OF STOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 26 March 1896

THE INTRODUCTION OF STOCK. A telegram from Sydney referring to the stock regulations of this colony, which appeared in the p Bess yesterday, has been something of a puzzle to the officials connected with the Stock De partment. The telegram states that intended shipments of stock from the Hunter River district had been stopped by news which had been received to the effect that the West Australian Govern ment had prohibited the importa tion of certain live - stock for human consumption. At first (the telegram proceeded to say) a duty of £3 per head was imposed on cattle, then their introduction by passenger boats was stopped. This trouble was got over by chartering special cattle boats, but further. reguladons were made making it compulsory for cattle to be slaughtered within so many days after landing. This had no effect, and now it is reported that the importation has been prohibited altogether. A reporter interviewed Mr Octavius Burt, who, having just relinquished the work in the S...
