'Talk Wont Do Itr . A unionist meeting at Wellington, N.Z., was treated to the following rhapsody by one Desmond, who, as he did not speak in Queensland, is still at large with no harm done: — 'Organised capital is the most tremen has ever known. It rules the councils ot kings; it commands the ukase of em perors j it dictates to parliaments, andf plunders the populations of the world. It sends forth armies to cut the throats of other armies and grows fat by speculation in the blood of the slain. It owns your lands, it .owns your iron roads, it owns your stately ocean racers, it owns your temples and your shrines and your cities. Aye, and out of your bitter sweat and the grinding of your bones it extorts its profits, its rents, and its usury.

The Broken Hill Battle. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 30 July 1892

Tho Broken Hill Battle. The latest from Broken Hill gives no hope of peaceful settlement. Secretary Sleath was disgracefully insulted at the shareholders' meeting in Melbourne which he attended on behalf of the men. The idle speculators who have taken millions of the miners earnings jeered at him and gave the men to understand clearly that no quarter was to be expected. It is said that an attempt will be made to import blackleg labour in about a fortnight. Meanwhile the miners are being assisted to some extent by the A.M.A. and other unons but not to anything like what they would be if times were not so crushingly dull everywhere. The Longreach branch of the A.W.U. has voted £50. At Bunda berg one old fellow out of employment planked down the only pound note he had to start a subscription list and- this Secre tary Holyer is now doing his best to push. Every union in Queensland ought to take the matter up and start a list it only with a £1 note. The Broken Hill men have been generous...
