In connection with the agitation by railway employees for a refund of their contributions to the railway superan- nuation fund, a meeting of employees of the stores branch, Roma-street, was held during the lunch-hour on Aug- ust 29. Mr. M. O'Brien (Australian Railways Union) outlined the whole of the de- cisions of the railway unions' super- annuation committee. Reviewing the position, he said that although the Premier had informed two deputations of the committee that the Government was unable to raise the money to re- fund the contributions, the Govern- ment had found no difficulty in ob- taining large sums of money for other purposes. Strange as it might seem, said Mr O'Brien, the Labour Government had repudiated its promises to its support- ers with regard to railway superannua- tion, and on the question of the leave due to the Northern railway strikers. CALL FOR UNITY. The speaker warned railway workers not to be divided by the cry that the ...

POKERWORK or pyrography is the art of ornamenting wood and other materials by means of a hot poker point, which scorches and burns lines and decorations in soft brown relief. The work is not diffi- cult, and many kinds of articles may be decorated, including boxes, trays, knife handles, bread boards, screens, and book rests.
