CHAPTER II. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896
CHAPTER II. They exchanged only one remark on the way across. " She's a taking little beggar." said Char torcis, " though I don't think she cares much for inc." Upon which Scale broke out against him with sudden violence and profanity, and in sisted on the subject being dropped. And after that. they marched down Northumber land Avenue in silence. " It's right up at the top." said Charteris, as they walked into the hall of the hotel. " I economised in the matter of room. So we may as well go up by the lift. Shall I tell the porter to have a four-wheeler ready in five minutes !" " Oh, do anything you like," said Scale, " No, you needn't bother about that now. though. There are cabs always ready. Here, come along; there's a lift just going up." Two minutes later Captain Charteris opened a door and showed Seale a pretty child of six asleep in a deep arm-chair. She woke as they came into the room, nodded to Charteris, and stared at his companion critically. For once in his life Seale was...
The Division of the District. March 26. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896
The Division of the District. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) March 26. An extraordinary meeting of the Progress Committee was held last night to protest against the inclusion of Ballagundi in the Kanowna district. There is no doubt the residents of the place can show cogent reasons for remaining in the Kalgoorlie dis trict. There is a very good surveyed road connecting them with Kalgoorlie,. and they also have a tri-weekly mail service from that centre. If Ballagundi is, to be trans ferred to the Ka nowna district it will be the cause of much complaint, there being nothing more than a rough track to Kanowna over a distance of 13 miles. The secretary was accordingly instructed to send the following wire to the Minister for Mines: " Extraordinary Progress Committee meet ing held last night. Protest strongly against inclusion of Ballagundi in Kanowna district. Kalgoorlie has been centre up to present. Direct surveyed road and tri-weekly mail service with Kaigoorlie; distance 11 miles.

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896
The "Pall Mall Gazette" has served to illustrate the divergency of views that some times exists between the proprietor and the editor of a newspaper. Mr Editor Green wood fell out with Mr Proprietor Smith. Mr Editor Stead fell out with Mr Proprietor Thompson. Mr Editor Cook fell'out with Mr Proprietor Astor, and now the latter has fallen out with Mr Editor Cust. Mr George Gray, it will be interesting to know. has made quite a capture for the chairman of directors of the Corsair mines in the person of Lord Roberts, but the capture of such a high military official is not going to be permitted to pass without notice, and already some of the papers are protesting against the Field Commandant of the forces in Ireland occupying such a position. All the same it must be admitted that the colonial finance crowd were pretty " fly" to secure such a catch because the influence of the gentleman named must be very con siderable. It would not be surprising if Lord Roberts were asked to retire. "Co...
The Prospects at Hannan's [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896
The Prospects at Hannan's. The report last week that the dry process at Hannan's Brownhill had been a complete success led to increased interest in the dis trict generally, and the prospects of the famous mine in particular. So far as authori tative information is concerned, the an nouncement appears to have been a little premature. For inquiries at the offices of the company's engineers reveal the fact that nothing officially has been heard by them of the successful results, nor do they even know whether the process is yet in actual use upon the property. But the opinion is nevertheless maintained in certain quarters that the rumours were well-founded, and that we may shortly hear that the difficulties which confronted the industry on the field have in great measure been removed. Be this as it may. there is little doubt that the development of the Hannan's district is being watched with interest by a public eager to note whether what is probably one of the richest gold-bearing area...

Mining Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896
Mining Notes. The Edward's Norseman has had 20cwt 2qr 141b of stone treated by Haycraft's Gold Extraction Co., the yield being 10bo ldwt 4grs. Captain Klot;, one of the early managers on the Coolgardie field, has returned to take charge of the Pride of the Hills, at Kal goorlie. All shares in the Bank of England G.M. Co., upon which the fourth call of one shil ling has not been paid, have become forfeited, and will be sold in Adelaide on 10th inst. It is not generally known that the Brown Hill mine was named by Mr R. Pettigrew after the Scotch farm on which he was born. Mr Pettigrew is now on the way to visit the old homestead. Private advices received on Snnday morn ing, and dated Adelaide Saturday night, quoted Boulders at £7 10s, the news of the rain having been received owing to the wires working splendidly. Twenty tons of quartz and lode formation from the Golden Zone gave a return of 16oz of gold. Another 20 tons was to be sent to the battery, and this stone was expected to im...
NOLAN'S FIND. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896
NOLAN'S FIND. The lode has been cut in the new mine discovered by Nolan and party some few days ago, and it is 10ft wide near the surface where it has been opened up. A start has been made to sink a shaft to strike the reef at a depth of 30ft or 40ft to test it, and then to go down to 100ft to test the value of the lode. The company to work the mine has been successfully floated, and promises to do well.
LAKE VIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896
LAKE VIEW. The lode has been struck at the 200ft level in the Lake View main shaft, and is as thick and rich as at the 100ft level. This strike is as important as the finding of the lode in the Great Boulder, and gives the mine 2000ft of lode lOft wide worth 2oz to Soz, and proved to a depth of 200ft to work on. With the increase of milling power that will shortly be availnble the output of the mine should be speedily increased. The main lode has been carried down in the W.G. shaft for the last 20ft, and the bottom of the pit is now within a few feet of the 200ft level. It is as rich as in the level above, and is apparently of great width. The importance of the find is that it has been made below the diorite, about the pos sibility of which cutting out the lodes there was such a scare raised in London some little time ago. This matter has been effectively set at rest by the developments in both the Boulder and Lake View, and, like the water bogey, will probably not be called on to a...
GREAT BOULDER. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896
GREAT BOULDER. The lode at the 200ft level of the Great Boulder has been struck in the south drive from the main shaft. It will be remem bered that for some time the results obtained at this level were very unsatisfactory, in fact. for a time the management was in some doubt as to where the lode was, and it was not until a few days ago that it was picked up. It was then found that the reef had taken a dip to the west, and then gone down almost vertically between the 150ft and the 200 feet levels. In consequence of this the lode was not picked up in the east cross cut nor until a good deal of prospecting work had been done was it discovered that the underlay having been altered the lode was west of the workings. At the point at which the lode was struck it is, 4 feet wide, and averages 7 oz. per ton. This removes all doubt as to the permanency of the mines of thelineand alsodemonstratesthat the value of the stone does not decrease as water level is approached. In the No. 4 shaft near...

NEW SOUTH WALES. SYDNEY, March 31. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896
NEW SOUTH WALES. SYDNEY, March 31. The Mayor of Sydney hay cabled his deep sympathy with the victims of the Brunnerton colliery disaster. Mr Joseph Mitchell, who for many years past has been endeavoring to establish the iron industry in New South Wales upon a firm basis, is, he states, now quite ready to make a start provided the Government gives him the aid he has asked for. It will be remembered that a few months back the Premier (Mr Reid) informed Mr Mitchell that if he produced satisfactory proof of the financial strength of the company he pro posed to form, the Cabinet woul. consider the granting to such company of substantial aid, in the way of a guarantee that a certain amount should be spent on Government work with the company during a stated period Mr Mitchell is now awaiting a final reply from the Gove-nment, having completed his business arrange ments up to this point. For some time past it has been c".s tomary in the ('overnment Depart ments to allow clerks to receive fe...
Correspondence. [The Editor does not hold himself responsible for opinions expressed by correspondents.] THE TOWN CLERKSHIP. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896
Correspondence. [The Editor does not hold himself respon sible for opinions expressed by corres pondents.] THE TOWN CLERKSHIP. TO THE EDITOR. SIR-Having heard that my name, along with the Mayor's, has been identified with your remarks in to-day's MINER relative to the appointment of a new Town Clerk, and that I was the person referred to therein, I most emphatically state that the Mayor had a fortnight before last night's proceedings arranged with Mr McGarrigal, of Bardoc, to get me a situation there, and I waited for that gentleman for that time, finding he could not give me the appointment. The Mayor three days ago arranged with Mr Grant (Duke of Wellington Mine) for a per manent situation. If your remarks in this morning's paper refer to the Mayor it is a most unjust insinuation, and I am sure that both the gentlemen I have named will sup port what I say. I may say that the late pown Clerk told me that he heard that I was a likely applicant for the situation. In conclusion I may ...
Sly Grog Selling. FOUR CONVICTIONS. FINES FOR £120 INFLICTED WITH IMPRISONMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896
Sly Grog Selling. FOUR CONVICTIONS. FINES FOR £120 INFLICTED WITH IMPRISONMENT. The hearing of four charges of selling spirituous liquor without a license occupied nearly the whole of Tuesday's sitting of the Police Court. The building was crowded with friends of the persons charged, and the greatest interest was manifested in the pro ceedings. The Bench was composed of Messrs L. R. Davies. R.M., R. D. Thompson and Captain Oats, J's.P. Mr Henning appeared for the prosecution in each instance. PATRICK CAREY-BOULDER. The first case was that of Patrick Carey charged on the information of John MtDonald Pettet with selling him 2s worth of whiskey at the Boulder on March 22nd. Mr Pilkington defended. Pettet deposed that he was a miner resid ing at Kalgoorlie. On the evening of March 22nd, at about 8 o'clock, he went to Carey's place at the Boulder in company rith Con stables Riddell and Goodridge. He went into the shop, which is a cool drink place, and bought two nobblers of whiskey. One ...
