STRAIGHT AUSTRALIAN ( ? WANTED: LEADERS WHO ARE SAFE. - | ^ HE people always follow those who ? are safe to follow.

' A leader who, makes his followers look ridiculous'is alwaj's marked for early slaughter. If a man is known by the company he keeps, electors are known by the leaders they follow.

QUEENSLAND SUGAR FIELDS TROUBLE. ARRIVAL OF TASMANIANS. Segregated Like Criminals. The 'Trinity Times' (Cairns) in a re cent issue said: — 'It is a long time since any of the coastal mail boats stayed out side without coming direct up to the wharf, but the Grantala on Sunday morn ing did so, and mails and passengers were brought in by the Vigilant. Perhaps it was on account of a large contingent of Tasmanian cane-cutters being on board; at all events the said cutters were con veyed on shore, where a special tram had been got ready to tgke them direct to the Mulgrave, and they were sent straight out without being given the' opportunity of seeing anybody here or holding any meet ing. . . . Mr. Gilligan, from Mossman, was in town when the previous batch of men arrived and held a meeting with them, obtaining their promises that they would join the union and stick out for union conditions; but the arrangements made in connection 'with this batch were .too sudden for him.
