COOLGARDIE NEWS. COOLGARDIE, March 30. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896

COOLGARDIE NEWS. [By TELEGRAPH.] COOLGARDIE, March 30. A serious accident happened to Menzies coach on Sunday afterroon. When close to the Canegrass Swýnmp Hotel a big body of water was flowing from the 90-mile lake, fully 300 yards wide, and the coach came up to a lot of teamsters and others who were waiting for the water to subside. The driver, after having had a look at the water, decided to cross over. He had the mails and four passengers on board, viz., Messrs. J. Kennedy, of the Federal Hotel Fremantle; Welford, of the National Hotel, Fremantle ; and A. B. Jenkinson and Adey, of Menzies. The coach had not gone far before the cur rent washed the leaders off their feet, and getting frightened the animals be came unmanageable. At this time a lurch of the coach nearly capsized it, and Mr. Kennedy scrambled out and swam to some trees near by. The other three passengers climbed out on top of the coach, and Mr Welford then got down at no little risk; and with a sharp knife cut loose ...

The N.Z. Mining Disaster. RECOVERY OF THE BODIES. AUCKLAND, March 30. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896

The N.Z. Mining Disaster. RECOVERY OF THE BODIES. AUCKLAND, March 30. In response to the Premier's call for help in the rescue work several hundred persons have volunteered. When the rescuing force reached 500 the Premier was obliged to wire the various West Coast mining centres that there were more than sufficient to keep the short shifts constantly going. The work of rescuing the bodies is proceeding rapidly. Most of the bodies are un recognisable, the only means of identi fication being the belts, clothes, and boots of the men. Some of the bodies are fearfully burned and charred. In most cases the bodies are in a defensive attitude, and the position of the arms and hands indicates that the unfortunate miners had made a struggle for life before they were overpowered. The force of the explosion must have been terrific. In one case the knee-boots were blown right off the legs. Iron rails andheavy trucks were twisted and shattered. The tension at the pit's mouth has been very great, ...

THE BRUNNERTON MINING DISASTER TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896

THE BRUNNERTON MINING DISASTER TO THE EDITOR. SIB-I was pleased to see by your issue of this morning that His Worship the Mayor had convened a public meeting for Saturday evening re sending sympathy and aid to the relatives of those who lost their lives in the deplorable mining catastrophe at Brunner ton. This is perhaps the most appalling disaster that has ever befallen a mining com munity in the Southern Hemisphere, and it would, indeed, be a very creditable thing for this, the greatest and most promising mining district in the colonies, to send immediate assistance to the unfortunate sufferers. Had a similar disaster occurred in Kalgoorlie I am sure the New Zealanders would have re sponded most liberally, and to the miners of the district I specially appeal to assist the widows and orphans of their unfortunate confreres in the ill-fated Brunner mine. This is the first appeal of the kind that has been made in the district, and I am confident that the residents of Kalgoorlie will r...

The Transvaal Crisis A GRAVE SITUATION. LONDON, March 27, 5.30 a.m. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896

The Transvaal Crisis A GRAVE SITUATION. LONDoN, larch 27, 5.80 a.tn. Cablegrams from correspondents in the Transvaal of the London " Times " and. "Pall Mall Gazette " that have escaped the censorship exercised over press messages by the Transvaal authori ties describe the situation as becoming very grave. It is believed that Mr Chamberlain's demands that his condi tions shall be complied with will pro voke the Boers who are resisting his terms. It is feared that the reforms de sired by the Uitlanders are endangered. An offensive and defensive alliance is stated to have been agreed to between the Orange Free State and the Trans vaal Republic. It is asserted that both countries are preparing for war. Great excitement prevails in the Transvaal, and many Hollanders and Germans are daily arriving in the country, presumably to fight for the Republic in theevent of an outbreak of hostilities. LONDON, March 29. A private letter has been received from a colonist warning England that grave ev...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896

Possible there is no other city in the world where the police on " beat" duty appear in private clothes owing to the fact that, the rush of work has prevented uniforms being made. This is the situation in Perth. It is a curious thing to see a man in a"swallow tail" with a badge on his arm doing street duty in lieu of the old uniforms of police, but they " get there just the same." In consequence of the remarks made by Mt Wittenoom concerning M'Donald's water right on Thursday evening, and which ap peared in Friday's lMIna, there was a small rush to peg out residence areas on part of the right, and on a lease also held by Mr M'Donald. The would-be holders of resi dence area blocks, however, met with a dis appoinment when they proceeded to lodge their applications at the Registrar's office, as the Warden had issued instructions that no such applications were to be received. It is the Minister's intention to immediately in quire into the matter of M'Doiiald's water right so that no app...

Kanowna Municipal Elections. March 27. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896

Kanowna Municipal Elec tions. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) March 27. Great interest is being evinced in the election that takes place to-day. It was thought that most of the candidates would address the ratepayers on the night of the 26th, but it was found that if they had done so it would make their election null and void. It appears that according to Clause 86 of the Municipal Act no candidate is allowed to be present at a meeting held for election purposes after five days have elapsed from the time of his nomina tion, and as nominations were received on the 20th it is obvious that according to the Act it would render their election void if they were to address a meeting on the night of the 26th. Notwithstanding this, the crowd wanted badly to be amused, andY were urging the candidates to never min' the Act, but to get up and speak. But wiser councils prevailed, and the budding orators were compelled to lock up their effusions in their chests. It is a great pity that the candidat...

AN UGLY RUMOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896

AN UGLY RUMOR. It is currently reported that a member of the Council has been interesting himself in the candidature of a close friend, who has very recently arrived in Kalgoorlie, for the position now vacant by the Town Clerk's dis missal. If this be so there will be a sort of revolution in municipal affairs in Kal goorlie. We are informed that the following letter was received by the Mayor on 26th inst, and that Mr Bartlett repeatedly asked him to delay the meeting until there was a full attendance of Councillors. Had Mr Wilson delayed the meeting for a few days, six of the ratepayers' representatives might have hadan opportunity of deciding Monday night's bus'ness instead of four. The letter we refer to reads : "William-street, Perth, " March 24, 1896. " John Wilson, Esq.. " Mayor Municipality Falgoorlie. " DEAR SIR,-1 have received telegrams from several ratepayers of Kalgoorlie asking me if I can possibly attend a meeting of the Council on 30th inst. I regret that as far as I c...

KALGOORLIE MIUNI CIPAL COUNCIL. DISGRACEFUL TREATMENT OF THE TOWN CLERK. On Monday night the special meeting of the Municipal C:uncil called by the Mayor, at the request of t'ie Town Clerk, to reconsider the action of the Council in giving a month's notice of dismissal to the Town Clerk and Sanitary Inspector, was held in the Council room. There were present-the Mayor (Mr J. Wilson), Councillors Nethercott, Lee, and Fimister. There were many ratepayers present, including Messrs Filkington, Cas sidy, Tinley, McGeorge, and Dr Barber. Shortly after the cmimencement a large 1 body of citizens arrived from Linton's open pearl. They proceeded to invade the Council room, which was soon chock-a-block. Those who could not get around the window tramped up and down the passages, much to the annoyance of Mr Mayor. the Councillors, and the Town Clerk. As the Mayor threatened to send for the police unless better order were kept, it looked at one time as if there would be trouble. However, conside...

TELEGRAPHIC. WEST AUSTRALIA. PERTH, March 31. No fresh developments have arisen in connection with the strike at the boot factory of Pearse Bros., North Fremantle.

Expressions of sympathy and pro mises of support have been received from all branches of the Trades' and Labor Council. Sir John Forrest proposes to pay a visit to Bunbury in the course of the next few weelrs. The object of the' visit is to insp...

Appalling Mining Disaster. EXPLOSION IN A COLLIERY. SIXTY MINERS ENTOMBED. [BY TELEGRAPH.] AUCKLAND, March 26. An appalling mining disaster has occurred at Brunnerton, seven miles " from Greymouth. Seventy miners have been entombed in the Brunner mine. The dead bodies of two have been recovered, and it is feared that the remainder are dead The disaster is believed to be greater than the Kaitganta calamity, which happened many years ago. The residents of Brummer state that the explosion at the Brummer * colliery resembled a huge cannonade. Immediately afterwards smoke was seen shooting from the pit. The worst fears were at once aroused. Mr Bishop, the mine manager, and Mr Smith, the engineer, raced down the incline, but they had not got far before they were overcome with choke damp. The alarm was raised, and crowds of working men gathered around the scene. Gallant men rushed down the tunnel, and soon the body of Mr Bishop, apparently dead, dead was brought to the surface.

The Storyteller. THE FINGER OF HANKIN. (FROM "CHAMBERS' MISCELLTANY.") CHAPTER I. He was called William Edward Hankin Seale, and by giving him the name of Han kin his godfathers and godmothers considered that they had provided him with brilliant prospects. Wherefore they economised, and forebode to add the usual christening-mug and silver feeding-tackle. In after years William Edward Scale had it constantly repeated to him that there was a man named J Hankin living on a place called the West Coast of Africa, where he had amassed wealth, and was still amassing. In his school-days William Edward Scale said little about the vague Haukin. He learned that West Africa was a considerable distance from Charterhouse in miles; that the climate was hot, through some connec tion which it had with a thing called the equator, upon which the sun apparently travelled as a 'head does upon a wire ; and that the Coast produced gold-dust, ivory, and monkeys.
