AN EARLY PROSPECTOR'S VISIT. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 26 July 1913

AN EARLY PROSPECTOR'S VfSIT Although one of the. very early ar rivals on thlese fields, he is a compara tively young raan yet,, but known to many throughout this and the -more northern district. This refers to Mr. 'Andy,' with whose name many mining .enterprise's have been assosia ted. For a eoniderable time he was located m the Ularring district/ but left there a few days ago. Recently he visited Widgiemooltha, and,' on his ', way to Perth, spent over a day with j old Coolgardie friends. 'Andy' has j been paying a visit to the rich bhows ,; -held by Larkin and' mates, and by Sweeney, an hotelkeeper at Widgie- 1 mooltha, and has taken some 'splendid | specimens- down.' with him.' Mr. \ Br,ophy inspected these properties with a view to business, and his prfesent ob ject is to f;et two or more Perth friends, to whom he is reporting, to come up and inspect the properties for themselves.

Cocksure. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 26 July 1913

Cocksure.     The lectures of Mr. Joseph McCabe have been well attended, and well re- ceived by sympathetic audiences. He   is a clever and fluent speaker, and has acquired a wonderful command of the facts and theorising of modern science. He disarms his audience by saying that he has been careful to keep out of his lecture everything that has not been brought beyond the limits of mere speculation. But it is not easy to de- termine the point where facts end and fancy begins. The substratum of "facts," for instance, which serves as the foundation of the lecturer's conscientious effort to portray pre- historic man, as he began to go his own way, and left the apes among the "threes," is woefully slender. The de- liverance, as a whole, recalls the judg- ment massed on a certain "cocksure" statesman by a colleague: — "I wish I could be as sure of anything as ____     is of everything." Mr. McCabe's main thesis is that "Scie...

SYDNEY LETTER. Sydney, July 8th, 1913. The Farmers and Settlers. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 26 July 1913

SYDNEY LETTER. Sydney, July 8th, 1913. The Farmers and Settlers. The Farmers' and Settlers' Confer- ence is in session at a peculiarly in- teresting juncture. In view of the fact that the "man on the land" is   menaced from so many quarters at the same time, it would seem that, above all other things, unanimity is desirable. Every delegate can see as much as that. But, unfortunately, a number of delegates seem disposed to battle for the unanimity of everyone else in their own particular view, rather than to show any disposition to sink them for the good of the common cause. Ob- viously, "Labor" is tolerably safe, so long as its most formidable op- ponents are divided among themselves. The situation has been complicated by the formation of a "Country " party,   which is holding an independent con- ference, and which does not seem to have quite made up its mind whether it will throw in its lot with the farmers and settlers or not. Fortunately, the members are...

Wool. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 26 July 1913

Wool.     The Sheep Show this year has been a succesful function, and has brought   together some of the leading wool-   growers of Australia. At the annual meeting of the Sheepbreeders' Asso-     ciation, Sir Francis Suitor, the presi- dent, pointed out , that there seemed to be a misapprehension on the part of the people generally respecting the transcendant value to the Common- wealth of the wool industry. His re- marks were quite justified by the facts. Two generations of theorising politicians, having conceived the idea that it would be more advantageous     if settlers were to grow wheat instead of wool, have piled special taxation on station holders, with heavier railway rates for their produce than are paid by other settlers. The last blow was the imposition of the cumulative land tax, which has broken up some of the most successful breeding stations so completely as to ar...

Marvel Loch fining Co., No.-Liability. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 26 July 1913

Marvel Loch Mining Co., No.~Liability.   ____________   a chequered career. When first located by Jack Leneberg the floaters available on the surface could have been put into a hat. When the clay was pierced a small rich vein was located and be- came known as the Marvel Loch lode. Mr. D. L. Doolette was interested and gave his interest away. Later another body of ore was found to the west   of the Marvel Loch lode. This became known as the Boulder lode, and has been worked at places for a width of 8ft. The property was floated in Mel-   bourne and Adelaide by Horace Stir- ling and Miss Newport was made legal manager. Mr. George Hogg was plac- ed in charge, and after milling several good parcels, he predicted that three separate parcels of ore which were ready for the battery would average about 30dwts. per ton. On the strength of this, shares rose rapidly, and when the crushing turned out less than half of George 's estimate, the s...

THE COMET OPTION. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 26 July 1913

THE COMET OPTION. In order to try and get a good property in the vicinity of the com- pany's mill, Mr. E. Dyason, one of the company's directors, arranged for an option over this Comet lease, which is close to Jacoletti. The owners of this lease had worked a small vein to a depth of 46ft.,(?) and drove north of the       shaft until a fault was encountered.   On getting through this they stopped work, leaving only 4dwt. values in the face. When the Marvel Loch Co. start- ed to extend this level they had only gone four feet when they found that values had increased to nearly an ounce over three feet. On continuing the level it was found that the reef bulged out to a width of 12ft. 6in., where it carried loz. per ton. The big make of stone was rather short, and is evidently the junction of two makes of ore. After getting through this big deposit, the level was advanced between 20 and 30ft. and the ore is maintaining good values over ...

MARVEL LOCH G.M. CO. ANNUAL MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 26 July 1913

MARVEL LOCH G.M. CO.   ANNUAL MEETING.   Marvel Loch (W.A.), 30th.— Half yearly meeting held at Queen-street. Mr. A. Hooper presided, and in moving the adoption of reports and balance sheet, said that as far as the Marvel Loch lease was concerned, its future depended on the operations at the 400ft. level. A telegram received from the mine that morning, stated that work had started. There was some little distance yet to go in crosscutting to meet the eastern lode, on the success on which the future of the mine de- pended. With regard to the Comet   lease, he thought the Board could con- gratulate shareholders in affirming the option. There were still three months too go before the 1st October, when the final purchase money would have to be paid. Work was being carried on in   extending the old level where the orig- inal owners left off. The drive put out here by the mine manager had aver- aged 22dwt. over an average width of 48in. T...

THE BOAT RACE [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 26 July 1913

THE BOAT RACE Once again Barry's oar was the first to dip in winning waters, and he sill retains the titular honors of world 's and English champion. The Australian was overthrown by a bet- ter man, and there can be no doubt as to Barry's prowess with the oar. Pearce won the toss for station and   chose the Surrey side, partly because it was rather the more sheltered from the wind, and partly in order to get the inside turn round the long Chis- wick bend. Both men got off well to- gether, but Pearce was slightly the quicker. Striking 38 to the minute he   went ahead, and for a time led   slightly. Barry, however, was not bustled, and rowing in beautiful form he gradually overhauled the Aus- tralian, and shot Hammersmith Bridge with a quarter of a length to the good.   At Chiswick Church he had estab- lished a long lead of several lengths, and the race was virtually over. Pearce struggled gamely and stuck to his work with grim deter...

BURBANKS MAIN LODE. NEW PLANT EFFECTS SAVING. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 26 July 1913

BURBANKS MAIN LODE. NEW PLANT EFFECTS SAVING.   For a long time past the monthly reports of the Burbanks Main Lode mine have included a considerable item for new plant, th pratcice having been to charge up the cost proportion- ately as the work progressed. The main objective was to reduce the work ing costs, and this was to be done in various ways, as this brief description of the plant will indicate. The mine water amounts to upwards of 90,000 gallons per day, so that a modern con- denser plant, including water tower, was one of the essentials. Increased steam power was also required, and great additions had to be made to the electric plant. The total cost of the new plant, inclusive of material, ere tion and connecting up with the old plant, was in round figures, £12,000. It was put into commission at the be- ginning of June, but several adjust- -ments were subsequently made and therefore, there was no straight run for the month that would enable the management to acc...

MINING NOTES NEWS AND NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 26 July 1913

MINING NOTES NEWS AND NOTES. "In Mr. Foley, Leonora has (says the local paper) a live member, and no doubt if the matter (a geological sur- vey) was again brought under his notice, he would once more move in con- nection with it. The lethargic attitude of the Prospectors' Association in respect of the mining interests of the district have been deplorable in the past, but   it is to be hoped that before long they will let the people see that they live not in the name only, and rise to the occasion." The "Leonora Miner " should send some members of that   branch of the Association to Cool-   gardie or Kalgoorlie for a spell. They will be quite " alive" when they re- turn. At the P. A. on the old Boronia lease, held by a local syndicate, very fair stone is being broken from the shaft. It appears as though the lode is going down, but the shaft is to be sunk some distance before opening out. In an abandoned hole on the old Great Western lease, not f...

TINDAL'S MINE. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 26 July 1913

TINDAL'S MINE. _______   Everyone is pleased to learn that the board of directors in Melbourne are so impressed with Mr. Faull's report on Tindal's mine that they have decided to work that important property again, but so far as local shareholders are concerned there is a   fly in the ointment. Why calls of 6d per share per month ? Two thirds of the shares are now held by mem- bers of the board and their im- mediate friends, and the sixpenny call is suggestive of a "squeeze" so far as the holders of the remaining shares are concerned. The town as a whole, however, will be glad to see the old mine working again.

THE STATE BATTERY [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 26 July 1913

THE STATE BATTERY. Having completed the last run at   the State battery, Mr. M. Moyes finished his work in Coolgardie. As   we predicted, the total of 41 thousand tons was reached, the actual figures having been 1030 tons, and the gold from this was 779ozs 1dwts, an average of 15.138dwts. The next   run of the battery will see a record   quantity of ore put through, as many big parcels have been kept back so that advantage may be taken of the concession that comes into operation on September 1, and is to be tried for six months to ascertain whether it will increase the tonnage. The crushing per ton will then be re- duced from 10s to 7s 6d, and by time to 12s an hour for 10 head, and 7s an hour for 5 head. These reduced rates will be inaugurated under the regime of the new manager, Mr. Cale who arrived in Coolgarlie on Thursday. COOLGARDIE'S GOLD AVERAGE.

THE HORNBLENDE COUNTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 26 July 1913

THE HORNBLENDE COUNTRY. In a previous issue we referred to a stretch of hornblende rocks that stretch from below Norseman to far beyond Coolgardie. At various points   along this remarkable line, rich ore has been found, conspicuous localities being the Norseman district, Widgie- mooltha and Coolgardie; but at the present time, some of the richest stone ever found in the country is being obtained in a show, for which a lease has now been recommended, held by   Messrs. Larkin, Clough and Mallish,   close to Widgiemooltha. There is a   small vein going down in the horn- blende which carries both fine and   coarse, gold, and this is simply dolly-   ing ore. A return of 60 ozs. from a   bucketful of ore is an ordinary oc-   currence, and several such returns       have been announced in the "Cool-   gardie Miner." The owners of this ...

A GEOLOGICAL SURVEY. PROSPECTING AT DEPTH. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 26 July 1913

A GEOLOGICAL SURVEY. PROSPECTING AT DEPTH. In connection with future geological examination, the Minister for Mines (Mr. P.Collier) has instructed that   after completing investigations in any   centre, and before leaving the field for the preparation of his report, the visiting geologist should, if possible, arrange to meet the prospectors or miners of the district for the purpose of affording them as much information and advice as he can in relation to the field or the working and develop- ment of their own properties. Inves- tigations have from time to time come to the knowledge of the Minister of benefits derived from scientific advice by the prospector, hence his reason for giving these instructions.   The Minister is to be commended in this matter, as the benefit that may be derived by the small leaseholder, who is unable to pay for expert ad- vice as to the probabilities that may   be in his lease, cannot be over-estima- ted...

QUEENSLAND MINING INTERESTING DETAILS. The report of the Queensland Sec- retary for Mines for 1912 gives some interesting particulars. It shows that the value of last year's mineral output was £4,175,353, an increase when com- pared with that of the former year of £514,292, and thus, with one exception, the highest in the annals of mining in Queensland. The values of the four principal minerals was as follows: — Copper, £1,698,280; gold, £1,477,979; tin, £364,503; coal, £338,642.

THE AMERICAN BOYS. In the Town Hall on Thursday and Friday next, all Coolgardie, or as much of it as can squeeze into the Town   Hall, will have an opportunity of see- ing the American Boys (with a capital B.) and giving them a hearty welcome to the Old Camp. They have an up-to- date programme, headed by a full mili- tary band. A strong local committee has arranged to welcome and provide accommodation for the "Boys," and Major Piexotto need have no misgiv- ings regarding the Coolgardie visit. They will all arrive on Thursday morn- ing, and new friends will meet them at the station. In Perth, the news-   papers have given a good account of the visitors. They have been inter- viewed, photographed and applauded.   Everybody gladly welcomes the Ameri- can Boys, and hopes they will have a good time in Australia. They are wel- come because they come from a great country, one of the freest and happiest in the whole world. Something has been said about...

NEWS ITEMS AND CADGERS. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 26 July 1913

NEWS ITEMS AND CADGERS. It is seldom that a day passes now without the editors of country papers open their mails without finding that the Commissioner for Land Tax, the Electoral Registrar, or some other wise and overpaid guy has not sent along some screed that he wants to get printed free, gratis and for noth-   ing. The last we received was from the Federal Commissioner of Land Tax,   and it seems as if this "Johnny" is under the impression that we keep the "Southern Cross Times" afloat in order that he may stuff us with ad- vertisements and get them inserted under the "news item" heading. As far as we could make out, the signa- ture to the last bummer's advt. that we received was that of one G.A.   McKay. We don't know Mac, and it is evident that Mac don't know us, for if he did he would erase our name from the list of country gawks who run papers on philanthropic lines. If Mac wishes to tell the readers of this influential organ to pay the...
