TELEGRAPHIC. PERTH, March 28. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896

TELEGRAPH IC. PERTH, March 28. A deputation of merchants and lighter owners of Fremunthl waited on Mr John Davies, the chief traffic man ager, to ask for additional trucks to be supplied to remove the goods discharged from lighters at the Fremantle Jetty. The members of the deputation repre sented that the trucks available for the jetty were insufficient to perform the work. In consequence great incon venience is caused. Is is claimed that out of the large number of new trucks that have been added to the rolling stock of the d. partment, the wharves get none. T lie matter having been informally discussed, Mr Davies explained that in consequence of the extension of the line to Coolgardie the round trip had much lengthened the trip which the trucks had to perform. A block occurred on the contractor's line in consequence of work in connec tion with the opening of the line, limit ing the engine power available for goods traffic. For the same reason the trucks which went up the line were...

TELEGRAPHIC. PERTH, March 25. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896

TELEGRAPHIC. PERTH, March 25. During the past week the aspect of affairs in connection with the truck famine has changed somewhat, and the block of goods at the shed is slowly diminishing. One of the chief causes of this is the fact that whilst formerly the steamers at the jetty fairly sup plied the trucks, latterly there is a complete lack of trucks on the pier to meet the requirements of the incom'n~ trade. As a consequence cargo is only dribbling into the goods area at the shore end of the jetty, %whilst with the assistance of 250 new trucks turned out fcom the locomotive workshop during the past month the outlet has been enlarged. The merchandise is now being dis tributed over the country districts with greater regularity as a result of this arrangement. The steamship agents, however, consider the state of affairs most disastrous. The delays and an noyances which they have to put on ith owing to the scarcity of rolling stock at their disposal are regarded as call ing fog some en...

CABLEGRAMS. LONDON, March 25, 5.30 a.m. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896

CABLEGRAMS. LoNDoN, March 25, 5.30 a.m. It is reported that the Corea is still in a very disturbed state. The Japanese Government has sent warships to quell the rebellion. The French Senate have sanctioned a cable to America and the West Indies. The Spanish troops operating against the rebels of Cuba have made another serious blunder. A party of the troops mistaking a number of their comrades for insurgents lay in ambush until they approached, when they fired on them and 80 of the soldiers were killed and wounded before the error was discovered. Great indignation is felt in loyalist circles in Cuba and in Spain at the care lessness that has been shown by the officers responsible for the mistakes. France has requested China to construct a railway northward from Lungchan, on the Tonkin frontier, to neutralise the benefits cohferred on the British through the recent action of the Chinese authorities in making the West River navigable for a considerable dis tance inland. The announcemen...

THE INCOMPETENCY OF WARDENS TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896

THE INCOMPETENCY OF WARDENS TO THE EDITOR. Sin,-Permit me to compliment you on having taken up the question in your leader of the 23rd inst. of the incompetency of W.A. Goldfields' Wardens generally. The subject is one well worthy the earnest and immediate consideration of the Govermnent. Your remarks are emphatically applicable to the Wardens on these fields, who have never shown any very conspicuous ability for the performance of the oncrous duties devolving upon a Warden in a large and progressive mining centre. Our Warden is hardworking and courteous, but something more than that is required of men who fill a position with powers greater than. of a Supreme Court Judge. When the fortunes of indi viduals of a district-yea, of a whole colony -are at stake, the Wardens who preside` over those fortunes should be men of high ability and great experience. They should possess some practical knowledge of mining and an exceptionally good grasp of 'the mining law. They should be fair, firm...

Items of News. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896

Items of News. S t We have been informed that the Miners' I Sick and Accident Association at White ] Feather have decided to send all their patients to the proposed Hospital of the ' Order of St John at Kalgoorlie, and pay for 1 their attendance. The wisdom of being prepared with plenty of tanks in case of a heavy fall of rain has been exemplified in the case of the W.A. Bank. The amount obtained on Saturday and Sunday from the roof of the newly I erected premises was nearly 4,000 gallons. The funeral of Mr Paul Rend, late of the W.A. Bank took place on Friday. The Rev. Father Deasy officiated at the grave, and the mortuary arrangements were conducted by Mr R. H. Wrightson. Mr Read had been stationed at Kalgoorlie for the past few months. Travellers between Kalgoorlie and the Arrow Lake Hotel have the novel experience of doing about one mile of their journey per boat, running from the hotel to the opposite shore as required. F!ocks of wild duck have already taken up their quarters o...

The Western Argus. PUBLISHED EVERY THURSDAY. THURSDAY, APRIL 2, 1896. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896

PUBLISHED EVERY THURSDAY. THURSDAY, APRIL 2, 1896. THERE are few who have the moral courage to admit that they have been in the wrong. To do so men must possess some of the elements of superiority. It is not surprising that the Town Council at the special meeting on Monday night failed to wholly acknowledge the error of judgment they made in giving the Town Clerk and the Sanitary Inspector a month's notice of dismissal at the previous meeting. They endeavoured to make a compromise between what was right and what they considered to be dignified by partly admitting that they had done wrong. They decided to re tain the services of the Sanitary Inspec tor and to allow the Town Clerk to hand in his resignation. No reason whatsoever was given by the Council as to why the two officers should be treated differently, and the decision was discussed in private. This, to say the least, was contrary to good taste on the part of the Councillors, who were deal ing with a public affair, which has e...

A Matabele Rising. GRAVE RESULTS FEARED. LONDON, March 27. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896

A Matabele Rising. GRAVE RESULTS FEARED. LonDox, March 27. A report has been received of a serious rising of the Matabele. Grave results are feared, as the natives are in considerable force and well armed. [The Matabele race is an important branch of the Zulu Kaffirs. In 1827 they left Natal, and after having defeated the Ma shona, Makalaka, and other tribes, they took possession of the rich plateaux and plains between the Zambesi and Limpopo. The Matabele are a warlike people, and until recent years, chiefly engaged in hunting and raids on their neighbors. They own large flocks, although the tsetse fly prevents cattle rearing in many districts. On account of their frequent invasions of Mashonaland, war broke out in October, 1893, between the Chartered Company's forces and the Mata bele, which ended in the total defeat of the latter and the capture of the capital, Bulu wayo, in November, 1893,] 12.15 p.m. News has been received that the Matabele of the Malopo Hills have mas sacred a...

STOREKEEPERS' PRICES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896

STOREKEEPERS' PRICES. TO THE EDITOR. SIR,-In your issue of the 24th inst. I noticed a letter from Kanowna signed " Straight Dinkum." We, in Kalgoorlie, are well able to sympathise with those at Kanowna, as far as the prices of stores are concerned. The railway to Coolgardie is now open, and one would naturally suppose that, as the facilities for transport became easier, the cost of the necessaries of life would become less, but exactly the opposite is the case. Take for instance bread. This article of food, 18 months ago, cost 6d a loaf ; 12 months ago, 8d; six months ago, 9d; and to-day the price is 11d. While allowing that to compensate for the great risk undertaken in starting and maintaining a business, and the large amount of capital that has to be laid out, a good percentage of profit is necessary; still I think you will agree with me when I say that for bread to be 5d a loaf dearer with the railway 100 miles nearer is outrageous. Many articles are 1d and 2d dearer now than th...

Original Poetry. A SEA MEMORY. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896

Original Poetry. A SEA MEMORY. [BY L. H. BRINDLEY.] Beyond that ridge of sandy hills, In one long line of foam, the sea Breaks with a sudden roar that thrills Thoughts of a time long lost to me. Days when my fancy, like the wing Of seabird, chased the flying spray; When life, I though', and everything Had not a harder task than play. I know not how I changed, or when, But as I dreaming stand today, I feel niy world of serious men Could find no harder task than play. It flies this phantom of my brain, Not boyhood, but its cheating ghost, 4 That leaves me nothing but a pain, B.A keener sense of what is lost. Still o'er the sandy ridge I hear The deep low murmur of the sea But in my time-dulled heavy car The meaning's but a memory.

POLLING DAY. RESULTS OF THE VOTING. 10 o'clock p.m. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896

POLLING DAY. RESULTS OF THE VOTING. [Br TELEGRAPH.) 10 o'clock p.m. The manner in which the poll for the election of a Mayor and six councillors for the Municipality of Kanowna has been car ried out has called forth a very strong pro test from most of the " tothersiders " who are in the habit of seeing elections car ried out by voting by ballot. The method employed here to-day is as follows :-Oa your giving your name you are supplied with two papers, one for Mayor, and the other with the 14 candidates names on it; you are only supplied with one paper, notwith standing the fact that you may have four votes for Mayor and two votes for council lors, then the Returning Officer has to go through the papers after the poll is closed, and allot each voter his share of votes. Thus the poll clerk and each candidate's scrutineer knows exactly how the ratepayers voted, and for whom. If this is tue way that municipal elections are carried out in the rest of the colony it is time that there was a...

VICTORIA. MELBOURNE, March 31. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 2 April 1896

VICTORIA. MELBOURNE, March 31. A Chinese quack named Love was the victim of a savage assault at the hands of a countryman named Lovey Du Shing at the Ironbark Chinese camp, near Bendigo, early this morn- ing. The former was attacked by Shing with a club 3ft long, and re- ceived a blow on the forehead which caused a severe scalp wound. He then beat him about the body, legs, and hands, and would undoubtedly have been killed had not another Chinaman rescued him. Love sustained a frac- tured leg, and was terribly bruised. William Henry Roberts, of the firm of Pentland & Roberts, solicitors, who was suspended for 12 months on July 29 last, was again before the Supreme Court to-day, when the Law Institute applied to have him committed for con- tempt for disobeying the order of the court, inasmuch as he still advertised hhimself by displaying brass plates at his residence and office. Roberts in an affidavit set out that as trustee he had business transactions with a num- ber of peo...

COOLGARDIE NEWS. COOLGARDIE, April 7. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 9 April 1896

COOLGARDIE NEWS. (raOx OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [BY TELEGRAPH.J COOLGARDIE, April 7. The White Feather Reward have cleaned up for March a crushing of 260 tons for a yield of 575oz of smelted gold. The mill worked 466 hours. The municiral election to fill two vacancies takes place on the 18th inst. Six candidates have been nominated. Mr Kaufman, interviewed re the sale of the Lake View, states that the announcement of the conditions of sale is premature, as negotiations are only proceeding, though the sale is certain to take place in a day or two. A meeting of the Electoral League was held last night, when letters from the Attorney-General and the Premier were read. They were considered evasive and unsatisfactory, and it was decided to despatch Messrs Vosper and Walsh to interview the Premier. Captain Fowler leaves to-morrow for North Dandalup, to inspect the new find. The Revision Court of voters' rolls will be held to-morrow. A great number of applications have been put.in.

With reference to the offer of the Transvaal Republic to protect the lives of women and chillren in Matabeleland, the Governor of Cape Colony has tele graphed to President Kruger that he will remember the offer if assistance be required, adding that it has given the colcny much gretification. Bechuanaland settlers are flocking to Mateking, and have appealed to Cape Colony for help, as they dread a rising of the natives of the country, who have been much excited by the Matabele outbreak. . Four hundred and fifty British residents of the Rand have volunteered for service against the Matabele. The total number of whites massacred in Rhodesia has been estimated at 200.
