Water Supply for Kalgoorlie. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896
Water Supply for Kal goorlie. THE Town Council did well at their last meeting to postpone the consideration of the letter from Mr C. Jobson, man ager and engineer of the West Austra lian Goldfields Water Supply Company, Limited, applying for permission to re ticulate the town of Knlgoorlie. The proposal is of very great importance, in volving many grave questions, and de serves the serious consideration of the public as well as the Council. The scheme includes the erection of an ex tensive condensing plant about two and a half miles from Kalgoorlie, and the pumping of the condensed water there from to an elevated service reservoir situated in or near the Kalgoorlie town ship. This reservoir is proposed to be erected at such a height as will enable the water to be delivered to the upper story of the highest building now in Kalgoorlie. Mr Jobson also states that his company is prepared to lay on metered services with positive meters to such consumers who may so desire, and adds that t...

A Magnificent Downpour. NEARLY FOUR INCHES OF RAIN IN KALGOORLIE. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896
A Magnificent Downpour. NEARLY FOU2 INCHES OF RAIN IN KALGOORLIE. Not since the Kalgoorlie fields began to make for themselves a place in history has such a splendid downpour of rain occurred as we have been blessed with during the past 48 hours. When the first rush took place here there was a heavy fall of rain which enabled prospectors to continue opera tions and greatly aided the initial work of opening up the field. The iownpour on Saturday and early on Sunday morning, however, far exceeded the fall we refer to and it is the record one on these fields. On Friday night about 9 o'clock we were visited by a strong wind from the east, which, though it made things very unpleasant for the time, was the wel come precursor of a copious rainfalL Shortly before one o'clock on Saturday morn ing heavy rain began to fall. but it was not until about 4 o'clock that it began in real earnest. From that hour until mid-day there was a continuous pour. In the afternoon and the early part of the eve...
Important Developments at Balagundi. March 26. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896
Important Developments at Balagundi. (FROM OUR BALAGUNDI CORRESPONDENT.) March 26. A good find having been reported to me in the Malvern Hill yesterday, I had the pleasure of an interview with Mr Gregory Anderson, the manager, who kindly aI'owed me to make a full inspection. The Malvern Hill is owned by a Melbourne Company and comprises 18 acres. A drive is being put in right through the hill, and in sinkiog an air shaft a lode fully 4ft wide was passed through at 25ft carrying splendid gold. The specimens shown to me were literally studded with both fine and coarse gold. Mr Anderson also showed me some remarkably good specimens taken from a quartz leader on the south end of the property which has not yet been opened up.
RETURN OF THE VISITORS. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896
RETURN OF THE VISITORS. In the afternoon dinner was given to His Excellency the Governor and other visitors by the Mayor of Coolgardie. A large num ber of guests sat down to dinner, and com plimnentary speeches were made by several of the guests. Lady Smith subsequently held an nt home which was largely attended. In the evening, the special train left for Perth, and many of the visitors availed themselves --4portnnity of returning. To-morrow SMinisters for Mines and Lands, the Hons i. H. Wittenoom and A. R. Richardson will start for Kalgoorlie to inspect the mines. Keen disappointment has been expressed by the visitors that they were not invited to inspect any mines during their stay. It is felt that their main desire was to learn something about the mines, and to see as much of the mining camps as possible, instead of which they were not invited to inspect a, single claim. The general im pression is that a mistake was made in con fining the proceeding to a weary round of festivitie...

Caulfeild, Doyle, and Baugh spoke. The Stock Exchange was filled to overflowing, there being quite as many out side as there were in the building. Mr C. Murray made a fair and impartial chair man. Mr Begg was the first candidate to face the audience.. He said he was in favor of a complete sanitary system for the town, and also pointed out that the townspeople would find it cheaper to live under a municipality than under existing circumstances. Mr Haack was the next to come forward. He stated that he was not much of a speaker but if he were elected he would do his utmost for the benefit of tIhe town. Mr Tonniges followed by saying that here tofore he had not taken a very prominent part in the town's welfare, but he had been working and developing the district of White Feather. He considered if the mines...

A Great Cycling Contest. AMERICA v. AUSTRALIA. MELBOURNE, March 28. The match between Martin, the American, and Parsons, the Australian, which is to take place on the St Kilda track this after noon is creating intense excitement. The contest will be the best two out of three events over one, five and ten miles. The mile event will be unpaced, but elaborate arrangements are being made for pacing the other two events. Each competitor will pro vide his own pacers. Parsons will have the assistance of the quadruplex, which is the only machine of the kind in Australia, and it will be manned by Dahlberg, Marsh, Caddby, and Turner. The Australian will also have the triplet with Clinton, M'Lean and Car penter in charge. Martin will have the as sistance of two tandems, one manned by Sherwood and Broadbent, while Porta and Pither will probably be in charge of the the other. both men are in the best of health and are doing such good work on the track that a terrific struggle is expected.
The Great Boulder. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896
The Great Boulder. Mr R. Hamilton, of the Great Boulder, in writing to a Bendigo frie, d, says: " Kalgoorlie, February 20.-We are getting on slowly here. Cannot do otherwise, on account of the want of water. In two shafts, which are now a little over 200ft in depth, we obtain O5igals per day. Then the pumps at the lake pump about 156,000 gallons a month. At present we are entitled to one half of this supply. When the Associated Mines have their battery re-erecte4 we shall be entitled to only ore-third, as the pump ing appliances were erected by a water trust, consisting of the Great Boulder, Lake View, and Associated Mines, each being entitled to one-third each. At the Lake View they are using this water in the boilers, mixed with water from the mine. The lake water has about 33 per cent. of solids in so lution. A boiler will not run longer than three days yithout the crown of the flue coining down. One boiler has had the crown down four times, and put back again by heating the plat...
AMERICA BEATS VICTORIA. MELBOURNE, March 29. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896
AMERICA BEATS VICTORIA. [BY TELEGRAPH.] MELBOURNE, March 29. A match took place on Saturday at the St Kilda Cricket Ground between Martin and Parsons which will be long remembered. An immense concourse assembled to witness the contest. The sum of £40 was given to Martin and Parsons to run the match, the best two of three contests over one. five, and ten miles to decide the match. Martin was looked upon as a certainty for the first event, because success in a mile race depends largely on experience and cleverness, both of which Martin enjoys to the full. Neither of the contestants were disposed to make the pace in the mile contest, and both men crawled along until Parsons, influenced no doubt by the cries and jeers of the crowd, who wanted a live race, put on a little steam. They pedalled two laps and a third in easy fashion, but beginning the last round Martin dashed away and secured the irside running. The pace dropped after a quarter of a lap had been cove and they did not begin t...
Unseaworthy Vessels. MELBOURNE, March 25. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896
Unseaworthy Vessels. (By TELEGRAPH.) MELBOURNE, March 25. The Sangster Board sat again to-day. Mr Alex. Wilson, engineer in chief of ports and harbors, denied that he visited the Wendouree in January lastfor the purpose of cutting down the repairs ordered by Mr McLean, the engineer and inspector of the Marine Board. He visited the vessel in connection with some work required to the ship. On all occasions his advice had been directed to increasing the safety aid efficiency of the ship and its ma chinery. He might have let the Taellrua go to sea twenty years ago with a boiler that a hold might have been put through, but the boiler was perfectly safe. It was decided to select the services of an independent sur veyor regarding the Wendource, and that the Board would take evidence on the matter either in Sydney or Adelaide. The Board then proceeded to investigate the charge that the steamer Cloncurry would have been allowed to leave port in an unsafe condition had it not been for Mr Sang...
AFTER THE BALL. ACCIDENT TO THE VICE-REGAL COACH. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896
AFTER THE BALL. ACCIDENT TO THE VICE-REGAL COACH. When returning to the Bungalow at mid night after the ball, the vice-regal party had a very narrow escape. The coachman on reaching the junction of the Kalgoorlie and Hampton Plains road took the wrong turn ing, and realising his mistake he turned to the right intending to get upon the correct track. In doing so the front wheel of the vehicle struck an upstanding stump, and the conveyance almost toppled over. The horses luckily stopped, and the party which inclu ded the Governor and Lady Smith, were assisted to alight. It was found that the near front wheel of the coach was smashed, while the axle was broken clean through. The ladies were of course very much frightened, and somewhat shaken, and they have to thank the quiet horses for their escape. Another conveyance twas following behind and it was utilised to take the vice-regal party to the bungalow.
CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH. "PROFANE LANGUAGE IN KALGOORLIE." [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896
CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH. " PROFANE LANGUAGE IN KALGOORLIE." The Rev Cumberland Clark, Congrega tional minister, continued his series of topies of social reform on Sunday. and gave an ad dress on " Profane Language in Kalgoorlie." The rev. gentleman took fcr his text the third commandment, in Exodus 20 chapter 7 verse-" Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain." He said although God's name was sacred, and profanity was a terrible sin, there were numbers of men who daily in dulged in it. Men degraded their own language, and it was impossible to walk down the public streets of the town without having one's ears assailed with the grossest profanity and the most filthy language. He was glad that the Wardens of these goldfields had recognised that it was a gigantic evil, and had determined to impose heavy penalties on men who were convicted of using foul language. TL'ere were residents in Kal goorlie who ...
The Churches. THE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH. "IS LIFE WORTH LIVING." [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896
The Churches. THE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH. " IS LIFE WORTH LIVING." The services of the Presbyterian Church were resumed on Sunday in Kalgoorlie, when the Rev. G. Johnston conducted service in the evening at Hannan's Stock Exchange. Mr Johnston, preaching from the above sub. ject, based his remarks on Job, 33rd chapter, 4th verse-" The Spirit of God hath made me, and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life." He said that man derived his existence from God, and God had made every man for a purpose. The wisdom of the Creator and the divine purpose was evi denced in all the works of nature. The wonderful way in which man was created showed this in a special manner. Some sceptical scientists, Huxley among their number, had tried to prove that we derived our, life from a protoplasm, and had attempted to ignore our divine origin, but they had signally failed. The great object of life might be sum med up in the words of the Shorter Catechi sism, ' Man's chief. end is to glorify God. and ...

IVANHOE [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896
IVANHOE The last crushing announced by the Ivanhoe Company was as follows :-240 tons of stone, yielding 245ozs of smelted gold. A good deal of ore was treated that had been left in the mine on the score of its poorness, but had to be mined to enable the stone to be rmulloeked up.
Mining News. THE IVANHOE. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896
Mining News. THE IVANHOE. A splendid development has taken place in this mine. A start was made some months ago to open up the middle and southern por tions of the lease. and it has now been dis covered that the lode in these sections of the mine averages about ten feet in width, and is very much richer than at the north end, where all the stone crushed to date has been mined. The history of the mine is a some what curious one. It alone of all the claims taken up by Brookman Bros and De Rose satisfied the early experts, apparently for the simple reason that the ore was quartz. This quartz, of which the lode at the north end where first opened up consists almost entirely, varies from four to five feet in width, and has averaged under 2ozs per ton ever since the company has been crushing. Strangely enough it was only because the north end of the lease was first worked that the quartz reef was discovered. In the new develop ment the ore is like that of the Boulder and Lake View-a mixtu...
