RAILWAY COMMUNICATION. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 9 April 1896

RAILWAY COMMUNICATION. Subsequently a meeting was held. Mr J. 0. Browne addressed the meeting, congratu lating them on the moderation shown in the discussion, and advising the men to do no thing in the matter of the employment of the Italians until they had learnt the full facts of the case. He then introduced the matter of the railway from Kalgoorlie to Menuies by way of Broad Arrow, Black Flag, and Bardoc, and urged the importance of being connected by rail with the centreof the field. The proposal was received with great favor, and 70 signatures were speedily obtained in the room.

Roll Up at Broad Arrow. INFLUX OF ITALIANS OPPOSED. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 9 April 1896

Roll Up at Broad Arrow. INFLUX OF ITALIANS OPPOSED. A public meeting to consider the influx of Italian miners was held at the Broad Arrow on Saturday evening. There was a large attendance, and the proceedings were quietly, but earnestly carried out. The reason the gathering was held was that on one of the mines a number of Italians are employed at very low wages. Some of the speakers stated the Italians were getting about lis per week and rations. A previous meeting had been held, when similar assertions had been made and a deputation appointed to wait on the managing director of the mine in question, and learn from him if there was any truth in the rumor. The deputation reported, that the managing direc tor of the mine in which the men were em ployed (Mr. Piggott) had told them all the Italians employed by him were receiving the same rate of wages as other men employed by the company. But the greater number of the men were not working for the company, but for an Italian contractor ...

The Sly Grog Prosecutions. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 9 April 1896

The Sly Grog Prosecutions. No right thinking man can object to sly grog selling being suppressed with a firm hand. The offence is productive of many evils. The liquor that is sold., is of an inferior nature, and often very injurious to the consumer, while `the premises are frequently hot-beds of vice and disorder. In this district the evil had grown to almost alarming proportions, and it was for some time an open secret that, with but a few exceptions, the name "cool drink shop" was synonymous with " sly grog shanty." We admit all this, but at the same time the severity of the sentences passed at the Kalgoorlie Police Court fully justify an endeavour to secnu e a mitigation of the penalties imposed. In the case of Carey, for instance, who was fined £30, with costs £3 Gs Gd, and three months im prisonment, the man's wifeland family have been left totally unprovided for, so the punishment is felt with extreme severity by even persons quite innocent of guilt. Other instances might be g...

The Railway Question. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 9 April 1896

The Railway Question. THERE is one point in the agitation for the proposed Kalgoorlie to Menzies railway that should never be lost sight of, as it is a final answer to the chief argument used against the construction of the line from Kalgoorlie by those desirous that it should be made from Coolgardie to Menzies. The main con tention of these people is that although Kalgoorlie is 16 miles nearer to Menzies than Coolgardie. yet the construction of the line to the latter town would, it is said, bring the people of Menzies nearer to Perth. If the railway were run from ACoolgardie as straight as the flight of a crow, the result would be that the people of Menzies would have to travel eight miles less when going to Perth than if they had to go via Kalgoorlie. Would it be reasonable, in order to save eight miles in a journey of several hundred miles, to construct sixteen extra miles of railway ? The Coolgardie people, however, ask for even more than this, and, instead of demanding that the...

The Menzies and Kalgoorlie Railway. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 9 April 1896

The Menzies and Kalgcorlie Railway. A GOOD move has now been made towards securing the construction of the proposed railway to Menzies from Kalgoorlie. The two Ministers who lately visited the town, Messrs Witte noom and Richardson, virtually pro mised a flying survey, and the feeling of the public has now been thoroughly aroused against the attempt that has been made in the interests of Coolgardie to deprive Kalgoorlie of its just rights. A good committee was formed at Wed nesday evening's public meeting, hut it would be decidedly better if it were made larger and more representative of the various classes of the community. Owing to what was evidently an acci dental oversight most of those who have already done good service to the pro posed Kalgoorlie to Menzies line by bringing the route before the Ministers were not included in the committee. The members, however, have power to add to their number, so the mistake may be easily remedied. The main object of the committee should be ...

The Division of the District. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 9 April 1896

The Division of the District. COMPLAINTS are coming from many out side quarters, regarding the manner in which the East Coolgardie Goldfields District has been divided. No one can deny that the district was formerly too large and that a -ivision was neces sary, but tL e residents naturally object to the Government going to the other extreme and cutting it down to be the smallest in the colony. They evidently recognise that as this istherichest district in mineral wealth in West Australia, more business will be done here than over the same area anywhere else. Outside centres who do their business with Kal goorlie have however good cause for complaint at being included in the new goldfields district, and thus being com pelled to go to Kanowna when they have any Warden's Court business to trans act. Both at Bulong and Ballagundi as well as elsewhere, the local Progress Committees have taken action with a view of getting their localities included in the East Coolgardie. District. A resi...

ELECTORAL REGISTRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 9 April 1896

ELECTORAL REGISTRATION. Mr C. J. Moran, M.P.. craved the induK gence of the meeting for a few minutes while he impressed on it the need of at once registering all electors who were entitled to the franchise. Registration could be effected every quarter, and at any time or day any one who had lived in the district for twelve months could go to a postmaster, magistrate, or police officer, and be placed on the roll. In three months Parliament would meet and then would come on for consideration the question of increased representation. The only basis on which this important matter would be settled would be the voters' list for each town and district. Unless the men were on the roll it would be bo use calling meetings to agitate for fufther repre sentation, as the roll alone would decide how many members the fields and the towns of the fields should have. He hoped all men would enroll themselves immediately.

The Town Clerk's Dismissal. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 9 April 1896

The Town Clerk's Dis missal. ALL'S well that ends well. The Town Council have practically re-instated the Town Clerk and Sanitary Inspector. The notice of dismissal to the latter was rescinded at the special meeting held on Monday night, and as regards the Town Clerk, the Council, at a special meeting on Saturday afternoon, passed a resolution which practically postponed the dismissal of the Town Clerk indefinitely. They decided that the question should be held over for consideration by a full meeting of the Council, but as the Mayor is shortly going to England, and as Ors M'Kenzie and Roberts are certain not to be able to attend before His Worship leaves there is ni possibility of a full meeting before at least four or five months. Five out of the seven members of the Coun cil did not regard themselves as a full meeting, so even if the whole six coun cillors could be got together they could not with consistency consider the meet ing a full one so long as the Mayor was `absent: The ...

THE NEW MINING REGULATIONS. A MEETING OF MINING MEN. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 9 April 1896

THE NEW MINING REGULATIONS. A MEETING OF ININGNG MlN. A meeting of mine owners and managers was held on Thursday evening, at Messrs Hamilton and Jephson's offices, for the pur pose of making any suggestions which the meeting considered advisable for inclusion in the new Mining Regulations. Mr C. H. De Rcse was voted to the chair, and explained the objects of the meeting. He instanced the following subjects for dis cussion :--Concentration of labor, water rights, objections to survey, etc. Mr R. D. Thompson, J.P., suggested that the term for concentration should be ex tended to at least 10 or 12 months. Mr J. V. Parkes drew attention to the fact. that he could find nothing in the Act or Regulations to prevent a leaseholder from selling any surplus water he might be in possession of. He suggested that amalga mation of leases should be allowed, instead of concentration. Mr Pilkington remarked that amalgama tion in many instances was preferable to concentration. Mr Parlkes then moved a ...

Local Affairs. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 9 April 1896

Local Affairs. [From the MINER of April 2.] Fon a considerable time the public spirit of Kalgoorlie seemed to be a minus quantity. The residents of the town and district. in their eagerness to advance their individual welfare by acquiring as much as possible of the great wealth that has of late been floating about, forgot for a time their duty to themselves as a community with all the requirements of a new settle ment, and with innumerable interests that need to be guarded. The many public meetings lately called indicate that some, at least of the people, have fortunately awakened at length to a sense of their public responsibilities. The question of railway communi cation which was considered at last night's meeting is one that largely affects the future of Kalgoorlie, and the interests of everyone who has a pound's worth of property in the town or the neighboi hood. The case for this town needs only vigorous pushing to ensure victory, as the route we advocate to Menzies is not alo...

CABLEGRAMS. LONDON, April 1. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 9 April 1896

GAB LEO RAMS. LONDON, April 1. The returns for the quarter just ended show an advance on those for the cor responding period of last year. The returns are as follows : Revenue, £3,618,598; customs, £5,100,357; excise, £7,688,000; stamps,£1,695,000. The press congratulates the Government on the surplus. Affairs appear to be coming to a crisis in the Soudan. Osman Digna is threatening the British forces that are advancing on Dongala and a battle is daily expected. The situation at Souakim is reported to be critical, and Colonel Parsons and several officers have left Wady Halfa to organise its defence. The garrison consists of one Soudanese and two Egyption battalions. France has declined the Chinese loan because the balance of the Customs not applied to the expenses of Government have already been mortgaged. It is stated that France has received an assurance from China that the West River will not be opened until a railway has been conducted to the interior from Tonking. LONDON, April...

COOLGARDIE NEWS. COOLGARDIE, April 1. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 9 April 1896

COOLGARDIE NEWS. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [BY TELEGRAPH.] COOLGARDIE, April 1. A case of garroting was reported to the police yesterday by a man who de clined to give his name. He alleged that while walking along Ford-street on Monday night he was seized round the neck and his pockets eased of 23s. A robbery occurred at the Free masons' Hotel last night. The book keeper at the hotel placed his port manteau in one of the rooms at the rear of the premises for safety, but this morn ing he discovered the bottom had been ripped out and the contents stolen. As evidencing the presence of a very undersirable element, on Tuesday after noon a man named Jouning reported that on Monday evening he sat down in Hunt street to wait for a friend, when sud denly two men came up to him, and one stood in front of him and the other behind. The latter severed Jouning's belt at the back and made off with it. The other man also decamped. The belt contained a gold watch, £10 in notes and gold, and a go...
