Shearing Completed at "Credo' Station, Black Flag.--Shearing has been completed at Messrs. W. H.   Halford and Sons' Credo Station, Black Flag, this season except for a few'stragglers. Starting on July   to with a good team of four shear ers and a full staff of shed hands under, Mr. J. S. Stewart, overseer and woolclasser, they cut out on Thursday morning, having shorn over 8500 sheep and lambs, nearly 8000 being this season's lambs. One hundred and twenty bales of wool have been railed from Broad Arrow to Fremantle wool stores for inclu sion in the September wool sales. The wool is clean and bright and fairly well grown for eleven months, and Is proof that the Kalgoorlie dies trict can hold its own with other parts for wool-growing and lamb raising. ' There has been only three inches of rain for the year up to date, so if local pastoralists can battle along in a dry season they should do well in a normal one. Federal Polling -IPlace.-Cr. R. Wilson said at the Boulder Munici pal Council meeting Thursday that he would like to know the reason why the Central State Sch3ol had been used as the principal. pollhng place instead of the Town lI.rli at the last Federal elections. Cr. Mc. I Kennay volunteered the inform.i.)n that the school premises had I cen let at a nominal rental. Cr :1 son said the Town Halla was etn trally situated in the busicess area of the to?tp. The booth ought to be at the Town Hall fiom a busi ness point of, view. The council, for the matter of that, might redune. the. rent in order to have the booth at the Town Hall. The Mayor, Mr. G. H. Rainsford, said :t was a mat ter over which the council had no, wjurisdiction. Cr. Wilson rcp;ied that the council might have a fay if it were prepared to reduce ren;t, charges to the Federal polling au. thorities. Cr. Rosser moved that a letter be sent to the Divisional Returning Officer, pointing out tha the. public convenience of Bovulder' I would be better served if the prin. cipal polling place were located atl the Town Hall. Cr. Wilson second-: ed the motion. - The Mayor s:aid he would interview the Federal Re turning Officer on the subject.

Dr. Bridgeford was congratulated upon his recovery. The inspector, Mr. R. H. Bennet re ported for the preceding fortnight: "Two half days were spent in going round the tubercular cases with Nurse Lynch of the Department of Public Health. Drain in President street: The drain alongside the soap works on the President-street side is in a bad way. It wants cleaning out to allow the water to flow towards Oberthur-street. At the present time the condensed water from the boilers passes into this drain., but the flow from this source does not in my opinion account for the quan tity that is lying about. It was stag gested by the officials of the company that the water main is leaking. I have put a- suggestion to the com pany that they extend the waste steam pipe so as to run the conden sed water into a tank where it will be re-used. This request has been agreed to. In future there should be no water lying about other than what is spilt by the contractor who removes tlhe.lquid wastes from the works. and this is, of course, pre ventable."--Both. reports were adopted. Representative of "Big Money". Regarding Mr. Basil Sanderson, who passed through Kalgoorlie Sun day on his way to Perth by the trans-Australian, an eastern States contemporary contains a long article under the headline of "The £100,-? 000,000 Young Man from Blighty."i The article states, inter alia: "When Basil Sanderson, scion of one of Britain's wealthy commercial families, landed in Australia last week, it is possible that his advent created in circles where the money goes round, a greater stir than any other oversea visitor in recent years. . . , . For this comparatively young mnan of high estate (he is on the right side of forty) is a direct link between the Commonwealth and £4,00,000,X0 of British si tai: railway, and commercial capital , . . This tidy little fortune is not all Basil's, of course. Most of it, in fact, constitutes the vested inter, eats of my Lord Kylsant, who re bently stepped boldly into the Aus' tralian oversea shipping trade wlthk out sEadng my Lord lnohoap.'s by

your leave..... As the manager of the -Aberdeen Line, the oldest passenger service in the B itpish Australian trade, it was natural that such a job would come his way. But there are other shipping and commercial interests, which regard the British envoy's visit as a prelude to a struggle for sea supremacy be" tween the millionaire peers, Kyl sant and Incheape--with the Aus tralasian oversea trade as the first venue of their commercial -warfare., .. .. White Australia has watched the Ineheape interests grow and grow-watched the old E. and A; Line, the Federal Line, the Unioni S.S. Co., with over 70 liners .and a . hunge capital, the famous Orient fleet and dozens of other well known fleets come under the P. and O. and British-India peer's sway, it probably never heard of such a' shipping Lord as Kylsant. .. .. Thq hawking of the Liverpool White Star Line over Britaipjgave Kylsant his long-looked-for odpening-and the gentlemen's shipping agreement wont. west. The purchase of the Aberdeen and more recently the Common wealth Line seemed to prophesy the end of the ancient nautical undei standing between shinping million aires-and as manager of that joint concern. Basil Sanderson was sud-, denly thrust into the limelight' among more millions than ever he had dreamt of.' . Not that he had not mired with the bWis money formerly. His father. Ilarild A., was one of the hig wig. in the fam ous Pierpont Morgan deal." . - i_._
