Tbe Navvies Medical Fund Swindle. FRED LANCE, MYOLA, WHITES : I am a railway navvy, and as such desire to get some mfomation as to the best means whereby we can get redress for, or explanation of, a grievance which the navvies claim to have.   Railway contractors are bound by the stipulations ot contract to provide proper medical attendance for their employees on the work, and are allowed by the terms of said contract, to collect from their em- ployees any sum up to but not exceeding one shilling a week from day labourers or fourpence in the £ from piece work men. The general practice is to oollect 3d. or4d. in the £ from piece work men, and from 6d. the lowest to 1s. the highest from day labourers, or in other words an average of two per cent on the gross earnings of their employees.

LUCINDA SHARPE ON TITLE DEEDS. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 16 July 1892

LUC1NDA SHARPE OH TITLE DEEDS. Onoe upon a time— this is an old, old story that I read ages ago — there was a king who inquired of a man by what right he held a certain selection. The king was a pretty big 'king, bat the man looked straight into his eyes and whipped out a sword that looked fit to cut a king's head off as easily as it would cut a beef-steak. 'That's my title deeds,' said the knan. ~ And the king said right away that it was perfectly satisfactory and didn't trouble the man with a sword to show the writing of it or the signature of it either. And my own heartfelt opinion is that to this very day there isn't any title deed more recognised by kings and by the various other sorts of rulers who have tumbled the kings out and sit in their places. Now is there ? If you know one I'd like to hear a little about it. - - ? T Hrm't. know r-f any other title-deed _w4iich_Jihi8_jrej^_JM«ae£[O^ejwnfintthat we've got can put in for Australia.
