THE COOLGARDIE BANQUET. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 26 March 1896
THE COOLGARDIE BANQUET. TO THE EDITOR. Sin-The pitiful exhibition our sitting member made of himself at the national banquet last night, while disgusting all right thinking members of the community, must effectually knock the ground from under the feet of any chance he may hitherto have had of again representing a reputable mining district. A dignified remonstrance at the undoubted slight would have met the case, but the blatant insolence of the whole speech must be resented by all your intelligent readers. Elected as he was when Kalgoorlie was unnamed, and merely an adjunct of the Yilgarn District, with a voter's roll of (if my memory serve me) 54, small blame to us if we mistook his "gift of the gab" for in telligence. Had he no self respect, had lie no respect for his constituents, I think, and I do not hesitate to say, he might have remembered that he was in the presence of the representative of the British Crown, and gracefully foregone his petty ebulition of feeling.-I am, &am...
The Matabele Rising LONDON, March 31. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896
The Matabele Rising LoNDoN, March 31. President Kruger denies that strained relations exist between Great Britain and the Republic, or that he has declined to visit England. Private advices from the Cape state that German Artillery officers of high rank and numerous soldiers are at present in Pretoria on pretence of being selectors. The rebellion in 1M2atabeland has not spread any further, and confidence is generally felt in the ability of the local authorities to cope with the insurgents. Eight hundred volunteers will co operate with the police. It is reported that the native police at Filibusi shot their inspector before deserting. The native police who have not deserted have been disarmed. Lord Gifford has received a cablegram from South Africa stating that the position is very serious at Bulawayo. All mining has been suspended. Money Order and Postal Note Branch. - Hours 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily, except Satur days, when the closing hour is 1 p.m. In land money orders for Perth, Co...

The Transvaal Crisis SPREAD OF THE REBELLION, LONDON, March 30, 6.30 a.m. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896
The Transvaal Crisis SPREAD OF THE REBELLION. (BY CABLE.) Lonow, March 30, 6.30 a.m. Sir Hercules Robinson, the Governor of Cape Colony, has forwarded rein forcements of police to Matabeleland. Mr Cecil Rhodes, who recently returned to Africa from England, is hastening to Bulawayo, the capital of Matabeleland. The whites at several outlying places have been killed by the rebels, and their bodies mutilated. It has been dis covered that the native police encour aged the rising, and a large body of them have deserted with 70 rifles. Parties under Captain Spreckby and Mr Selous have been twice defeated, the Matabele killing many. The Matabele have been joined by another tribe, and have thus received a great accession of force. There are 1000 women and chilkren in a laager at Buluwayo. The rebels number 8000. The officials of the South African Chartered Company report that serious consequences are not expected from the rising. News has come to hand that the rebels are zollecting 30 miles...
TRESPASSING ON LEASES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896
TRESPASSING ON LEASES. TO THE EDITOR. Sir,-" Man's inhumanity to man makes countless thousands mourn. " The truth of this has been exemplified during the past week. I was present whin the trespass case was being 1heard-the Ivanhoe versus C. Tindall, the Warden giving his deci sion against the defendant with costs. Now, Sir, I would like to ask the Warden, through your columns, where is a man to live when he is out of work and of what use is a miner's right to him ? If the Ivanhoe Company can compel a man to move-though thank God the managers are not all Lynch's-then it follows as a matter of course that other companies have that power. Now, sir, there are at present two or three families living on the extreme boundary of the Ivanhoe who have received notice to quit, and they have been to con siderable expense in erecting comfortable places to live in, and have complied with the Health Act in every particular, yet they are forced to go through, not living near any of the shafts or ot...
THE BETTING MARKET. March 81. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896

KALGOORLIE OR HANNANS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896
KALGOORLIE OR HANNANS. TO THE EDITOR. SIn-1 notice that a poll of the ratepayers is to be taken on the question of altering the name of Kalgoorlie to its original name, viz., Hannaus. Why the field should be named after an individual I cannot see, more especiallp as Hannan at the time of his dis covery was only following the tracks of Dwyer and Reidy, and happened to find gold while they were looking for water for the party. Besides the field is now known the world over as Kalgoorlie, and to again alter the name would only further confuse matters. Hoping some abler pen will take the matter up.-I am, &c., DRYBLOWER. Kalgoorlie, March 27.
RACING ITEMS. MELBOURNE, March 31. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896

Disfigured has declared for both engagements. Preston has accepted for the Onkaparinga Cup, but his going is still undecided until he has been tried at Mill Park. Quiver is to leave for India on April 24. Messrs Fordham and Uphill, Indian buyers, will attend the meeting at Rand wick. Warpaint will not take the trip to Sydney, but will be reserved for the Adelaide Cup meeting. Brewer will ride hint.
(TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896
(TO THE EDITOR.) SIR,-I am desirous in the extreme to discover the language that constitutes the vernacular of your correspondent, "Kal goorlie." As far as my humble judgment informs me, I am forced to conclude that not only is '" Kalgoorlie" ignorant of the classical language referred to, but also he is much to the fore in betraying a woeful ig norance of grammatical English. A brief perusal of his epistle will establish the truth of this statement. But the ridiculous part of " Kalgoorlie's" letter is where he takes singular exception to the phraseology of my nom de plume, and in the same breath pre tends to understand the import of the word " re" of the same Latin language. I wonder in what language was " Kalgoorlie" edu cated. Besides myself, Mr Editor, there are several others anxious to learn if the language of the real live Kurnalpi native is not yet extant. We have read with un feigned awe the production of his pen. Oh I for the melodious (7) tones of his exquisite voice.-Obe...
MINING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896
MINING NOTES. Good gold has been struck in the Florida, one of the leases on the Corsair line of lode. The Florida is held by a. Boulder syndicate. Saturday's London prices for stocks show a big upward tendency, the quotation for Boulders being £7 7s 6d, and for Lake Views 83s. This was before the news of the phenominal fall of rain had reached the. English capital. Monday's quotations had not come to hand up to the time of our going to press. A start has been made to sink a winue from the 80 ft level on the green lode at the Crosus n.ine, and some of the richest ore ever found in the mine is being raised. Sonic of the samples sent in to the office on Tues day were full of gold, and the average of the ore being broken is very high. Dr A. Scheidel, the representative of the New Zealand Mining Trust has beenmaking a careful inspection of the mines of the dis trict for two weeks past, and is greatly im pressed with the field. He is quite convinced that the. Kalgoorlie mines are superio...
TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896
TO THE EDITOR. SIB-Re " Vox Populi's " letter in your paper to-day. To tell you the honest truth I don't know what " Vox Populi" means, but I suppose it is Latin, or some dead language. The gist of the letter is to give a cheap ad vertisement to two doctors. That is what I make of it. I don't know what experience Dr O'Meehan has, but this I do know that both our hospital doctors are the right men in the right places. There is no Latin about that-that is English, you know-and I think as far as experience goes they could give some doctors points, and then beat them hollow. I am sure, if you or anyone else visits the hospital, the patients will back me up, sir-there is no doubt about it. Dr Mattei intends that the people of Kalgoorlie shall know how many beds there were in the hospital at Alexandria. He would have had a nice time of it if he had had to pass the slipper around to the lot of them. I will finish now, as I think Dr O'Mechan is able to defend himself. Thanking you in antici...
TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896
TO THE EDITOR. Sim-If the R.M.O., in his reply to Mr Geoghegan's letter, had confined himself to a simple explanation of his attitude towards the patient in question he would have acted more wisely. But the doctor (lid more than this. He has gone out of his way to warn the public of the inadvisability of erecting an institution that he knows well will be far superior to the one over which he presides. I would remind Dr O'Meehan that he is a servant of the people, and as such any attempt on his part to dictate to the public mind should have no foundation within the domain of his duties. Dr O'Meehan refers to Mr Geoghegan's "large hospital experience gained in the early days at Hanuan's." Ap parently our R.M.O. trifles with Mr Geoghegan's experience. But does the doctor forget he is a capital hand at blowing his own trumpet of experience? At the inaugural meeting held for the pro motion of the Sisters Hospital Dr. O'Meehan foisted upon the public his greater experience than any of tho...
Correspondence. [The Editor does not hold himself responsible for the opinions expressed by correspondents.] THE PUBLIC HOSPITAL. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896
Correspondence. [The Editor does not hold himself respon sible for the opinions expressed by cor respondents.] 1'HE PUBLIC HOSPITAL. TO THE EDITOR. Szn.-With reference to Dr O'Meehan's reply in to-day's issue to my letter of the 24th inst., I beg to state that I do not see that he has at all answered the complaint I brought before the public, and I still adhere to the belief that temporary provision, at least for the reception of patients, should be made without the formality of authority from the doctor when absent from the insti tution, and this particularly when, as in this case, patients are brought in from distant places. The coach driver and a gentleman passenger, whose name I do not know, will, I feel quite sure, bear me out when I state that the man I refer to re quired immediate attention, and certainly a temporary place of rest at the hospital pend ing the doctor's arrival. Laymen like my self can only draw conclusions as to the seriousness of any complaint from the suf fe...
The Railway to Menzies. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896
The Railway to Menzies. A FEW issues ago we urged the neces sity for agitating for railway communi cation between Kalgoorlie and Black Flag, Smithfield, Broad Arrow and Bardoc. Since then a petition has been drawn up and extensively signed in Kalgoorlie asking the Mayor to call a public meeting for the purpose of con sidering the best means for furthering the proposed project. It is very grati fying to us that this step has been taken, and we desire to point out that whatever is to be done in the matter should be done at once, as already the absurd suggestion has been made to construct a zig-zag line connecting Black Flag with Coolgardie. This route is reported as having been favored by the Premier, but if this be correct there oan be little doubt that Sir John Forrest must have received a false impression of the relative posi tions of Kalgoorlie and Coolgardie to Black Flag, Broad Arrow, Bardoc, and Goongarrie. The railway that is proposed from Coolgardie would be un necessarily le...
Local Requirements. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896
Local Requirements. THE visit of the Minister of Mines and the Commissioner of Crown Lands to Kalgoorlie this week should give both gentlemen a fair idea of the wcnderful mineral resources of this district, and the great and rapid strides that have been made of late in the work of development. They cannot failtoforesee a glowing and prosperous future beforg the town, or to recognise that in wealth and population it is bound to surpass any other centre on the goldfields. That they realised this was evidenced in their replies to some of the requests made by the deputations that waited on them yesterday and the previ ous day. At least two of the requirements demanded on Lehalif of this town appear to have been long since agreed to by the authorities, but their accomplishment was delayed owing to official bun gling and public apathy. We might have had a Road Board long since if a little more interest and energy were displayed by those in whose hands its establishment was left by the pub...
RAILWAY EXTENSION. THE LINE FROM KALGOORLIE TO MENZIES. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896
RAILWAY EXTENSION. THE LINE FROM KALGOORLIE TO MENZIES. Following on the articles which have ap peared in the MINER advocating the eaten sion of the railway from Kalgoorlie to Men ties as being the shortest and most direct route, and at the same time embracing the important districts of Broad Arrow, Bardoc, and Black Flag, a deputation on Friday afternoon, waited upon the Minister of Lands (Mr A. R. Richardson) and the Minister of Mines (Mr E. H. Wittenoom) to request that a trial survey should be made of this route. Only about 30 gentlemen were present, the deputation being hurriedly arranged. Mr Pilkington said that all they asked for was that a trial survey should be made of a line from Kalgoorlie to Menzies, as well as from Coolgardie to Menzies. They hoped that the Ministers would use their influence to have the survey made, so that the Go vernment might have an opportunity of com paring the relative merits of the lines. The line from Kalgoorlie would pass directly through Broa...
Australian Natives' Association. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896
Australian Natives' Association. On Friday evening a meeting convened for the purpose of forming a branch of the Aus tralian Natives' Association took place at McMahon's Hotel. There was a large attend nuce. presided over by Mr George Leckie General Secretary of the A.N.A. for Western Australia. Air Leckie, who was well received, saAd that the Association had a special claim on the natives of Australia, for it was a society which had for its object the educating of the people and the fostering of a national senti ment. He repudiated the statement that the A.N.A. was a party political or repub lican society. The members could claim that the Association had been the means of creating an interest among Aus tralians in the welfare of the continent, and promoting the great cause of Federation. (Cheers.) In Victoria many of its members were taking high pcsitions in Parliament, and most of the members of the present Ministry were natives of Australia. As a benefit society they gave as good...
Jealous Coolgardie. A DOUBLE-HEADED CRITIC. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896
Jealous Coolgardie. A DOUBLE-HEADED CRITIC. That the rapid advancement of the dis trict of Kalgoorlie with its splendid mines (which are daily proving their real worth) is exciting the jealousy of the people of Coolgardie is evidenced by some of the references to our town in yesterday's issue of one of the local papers. Some of these references are highly amusing, exhibit ing as they do an entire absence of any reliable knowledge of the town and district of Kfigoorlie. In its excess of jealously and ignorance of facts, it is not to be wondered at that the journal referred to is inconsistent : When referring to But how different is our claims for a rail- the tune when with way from hero to desire to censure the Menzies Kalgoorlie is Mayor for the bungling spoken of as a "rising of the festival arrange little town.' meets for the opening It is also stated that of the Coolgardie see Kalgoorlie is dis- tion of the railway.
