THE WHARF LABOURERS' STRIKE. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 16 January 1886
THE WHARF LABOURERS' STRIKE. (From Iesorlday's Ago.) The strained relations which have for some time subsisted betsteen'the Melbourne Shipowners' Association and the Wharf Labourers' Union are now at utmost ten sion, and before long the various inconve niences which are sure to be visited upon the public through this lamentable dis agreement will be felt in all their force, unless in good time a satisfactory working arrangement is made. A hopeful de velopment of yesterday's proceedings has been the measure of success which has attended the efforts of Mr. Andrew Lyell to prepare the way for establishing a platform on which thie shipowners will agree to submit their case to the conside ration of a board of conciliation. He has obtained the thorough confidence of that body, and, standing weo in the estimation of the men, will, doubtless, be of great use as (a mediator. Yesterday afternoon Mr. Lyell arranged to consult with the Employers' Union, and. decide on a basis of action. The res...

THE IMPORTATION OF MEN COUNTERMANDED. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 16 January 1886
THE IMPORTATION OF 35N COUNTESS' The strike of th wharf labourers con tinues to form the theme of conversation among the lumpers and others interested at Port Adelaide, and rather a strongfeel ing is manifested by the majority in favour of the men. The Adelaide Steamship Company have promised to pay any wharf labourers they may employ in Melbourne the same rate of wages as they pay in Adelaide, and which the Melbourne labourers have struck for, and in the event of this being done the intercolonial cargo trade will not be interfered with, as the A.S.N. Co., will monopolise the trade be tween Sydney and Melbourne, and the Adelaide Steamship Company between Adelaid and Melbourne. This, it is thought, will put an end to the strike, as it is not likely that the steamship owners will allow these two companies to take all the trade, and as a consequence will accede to the men's demands. To all appearances the Coolrs and Stewards' Union which isa federatedbody, extending through the colonie...

Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 16 January 1886
AtBke~or Dyasox. Brds al~. GOdQm Rp ram. These few examples of the last words of celebrated persons have been culled at random from the great many available; yet they convey, in someinstancees, a valu able lesson. They add lustre, in. some cases, to the departed. We find that some great personages haveo died as they lived, and that death for those who did nothing wrong, was aynited with a sort of plea sure, as a recomponse for the :good works done here below. The considerations of the last moments of great men may lead a few at least to take more interest in their lives and work, and from these valuablo lessons may be gathered. One may learn that failure has often been productive of good, and the man or woman, like the forest trees, as winter approachles, shed their leaves and appear to die away, but the rotton foliage acts as food, and the oak or elm springs into life, revivified out of its own decay. .5000.-First Annual Sale of Gold and Silver Jewellery, Watches, Clocks, &...

GREAT FIRE IN PITT"STREET, A destruective firo roelting in damage to the extent of £3000 or .£4000, broke out at No. 417, Pitt-street, this morning a few minutes before 10, and raged with such astounding activity than in less than half an-hour two shops were quite burned out. The fire was got under in about three quarters of an hour through the strenuous exertions of the firemen, assisted by a large body of police under Inspectors IMackay and Henderson. The premises burned are the property of Mr. J. Roberteon, trading as the N. S. W. Carriago and Buggy Factory, 417, Pitt street, a portion of which wore occupied by Mr. Sargent, bedding manufacturer, and J. Bailey and Co., stationers' agents and printing ink andpolish vendors. The fire appears to have originated in Mr. Sargent's promises, which were totally gutted in. less than twenty minutes. An employee of Mr. Bailey states he first saw flame and smoke issuing from the par tition dividing Mr. Bailey's promises from Sargent's. Mr. Sa...
