POSITION IN SYDNEY. OVERTIME RESUMED. SYDNEY, Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 24 January 1914
POSITION [N SYDNEY. OVERTIME RESUMED. SYDNEY, Th'ursday. A good deal of lpeculation was rife inj shipping circles to-day as to whlether tile decision of the meeting of wlh3rf labriers held last night to give way on tihe question of working overtime would be carried into elfbet by the mien. The work on the whatfs proceeded as usual all day, and the loading of thd vessels was condllcteCt without the occurr'ence of any untowaud diversions. The crucial moment, however, occun'red at 5 p.m., the houtr at whichl the wharf laboreris in ordinary circumstances cease work for the day. Thi. evening, in obe dichce to thedlccision of the meeting,,the men remained at their tasks, wherever. re quired, until: in some cases 10 p.m. The exigencies of their work also required that a certain number of wharf laborers should commence at midnight. and continue untfil 0 aan,. and tlhis, too, is: eheerfully being carried out. Another conference will:'be held between the companies aid' the union, ,when the ne...
LABOR TROUBLES WATERSIDE WORKERS' WAGES. WATERSIDE WORKERS' DEMANDS. EFFECT OF SYDNEY MEETING. EMPLOYERS FAVOR ARBITRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 24 January 1914
LABOR TROUBLES A WATERSIDE WORKERS' WADES. WATERSIDE WORKERS' DEMIANDS. IEFFECT OF SYDNEY MIEETING. EMPLOYERS FAVO~R. ARBITRA'TION. The defeat of the extremist section, of the Sydney Wharf Laborers' Union at the special meeting held on Wednesday night, and the almost unanimous decision to ad here to the old agreement until all efforts to secure an amicable settlement at a volun tary c0nference, with the owners have been exhausted-, have placed an entirely differ ent complexion on the situation. Al though the employers have given no indi cation at to their willingness or otherwise to reopen negotiations, it is regarded as practically certain in shipping cireles that the owners will place no obstacle in the way, of ~arriving at a workable agreement. Among the moderate and' reasonable see tion of wharfmen in Melbourne the view is helt that the statement made at last wveek's conference, that it would be useless discussing the log as a whole unless the demand of 2/ an hour for ordinary l...
EMPLOYERS' ATTITUDE. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 24 January 1914
EMPLOYERS' ATTITUDE. Althoughl the employei are desirous of sceuring a new working agreement through a voluntary conference--the, less costly and most satisfactory method-they fear that no finality will be reached until an award is obtained from the Arbitration Court. Tlie secretary of the Owners' Federa tion, Mr. H. M. Adams, was disinclinied to make an oflicial statement as to the atti tude of the employers associated with the federation; but from unofficial sources it is learned that for the most part, owners are bent on taking the dispute before Mr. Justice Higgins. There is reason to be lieve, lhowever, that no opposition will be offered to the request of the men for another' conference, but unless the workers' delegates are prepared to accept a con siderable-reduction on the rates claimed in the new log, the meeting will again be abortive. In such case it is probable that 'the emp!oyers will appeal to Mr. Justice H-iggins to call a compulsory conference. e' will hear the views...

A REMARKABLE CAREER. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 24 January 1914
A REMARKABLE CAREER. The death of Lord Stratheona removes not only one of the most venerable he was 93 years of age on 6th August last -but also one of the most notable figures in Imperial politics. He had in one sense outlived his generation, but in another sense he was always abreast of and in touch with it. lie kept his intelligent in terest in public affairs, and his intelligent grasp of them, almost to the INst. A Lon don writer records that on his 9:hd birth day he was itble to do a big day's worlk as Ihigh Commissioner for the DIominion of Canada-to interview the crowd of in quirers who camer to call on him, and then, when office hours were over, to spend the evening helping on to fruition so:ce of the countless projects of iractica l in p'crialismin that hie had at heart.
