Latest News by Cable and Telegraph Latest Cables THE GREAT STRIKE. DETAILS OF SETTLEMENT. . The coal conference considered the owners' statement containing propos- als for a durable scheme. The plan ^ stipulates that wages depend upon the" industry's ability to pay ; that coal fields be divided into agreed areas and that the standard of wages should stand, the profits to be the first charge on the industry, the sur- plus to be divided between the own- ers and the men. Proposals for tem- porary arrangements during the tran- sition period suggest three months' wage reductions to be uniform, each area owner not taking profits if the result would mean a reduction in wages below the maximum fixed monthly. It is suggested the Gov- ernment fix the maximum after con- sultation with both parties. The meeting was adjourned.

THE PEASANT'S COT. The Palace glows with gorgeous 1 sheen The lordly mansions hold The treasures brought from many climes, And souvenirs of old ; Proud dames and nobles grace their halls And hunger enters not,. Yet give to me the rustic home, The humble peasant's cot Mine eyes have weary grown of all The pageants of the great, _ My sense revolts at hollow rank And privileged estate ; The glamor of the lordly court ^.,t * Shades many a "noble** sot; Give me - the guileless hearts as ? friends « - Who share the peasant's cot. ~ - Be sure that many a gilded hall And many a haughty dame Resplendent shine through poor man's toil, And sacrifice of shame ; Not honor, worth or honest sweat Nor aught else such I wot Have decked their brow-these vir- tues cheer Alone the peasant's cot There purest love and bravest men - And fairest maidens dwell ; There artless bloom an incense - sheds ( v As flowerets of the dell ; . There I was born, there let me die Whate'er in life's my lot; I'd have the ...

REMEMBER THE RED SEA. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 28 April 1921

The very fact that negotiation should be resorted to at all is proof that the British Government refuses to ack- nowledge Ireland's inalienable right of independenre as well as its being, of course, an admission of the failure of the policy of terrorism, murder and destruction. It is hoped that t...
