Night Shift at the Borehole. [Newspaper Article] — Miners' Advocate and Northumberland Recorder — 8 July 1874
* Night Shit sat the Borehole. BY our report of a meeting of the Borehole miners held on 27th ult., it will be seen that the A. A. Company's miners have deter mined to do away with the night shift, and have accordingly given Mr. WIrSHIP si= -eeks' notice to that effect. We are pl~aed that the men have been so considerate br giving the length of notice they have done, is it is ample time to enable the Manager to make any arrangements he may think neces sary, so asr; to put his men on the same footing as they are at other collieries, vis., a1 on the&lt; day shift. The night shift has been a source of complaint since it was first introduced,-it has always been a bone of contention amongst the men, and recently the dissatisfaction has assumed that magni tude which we believe can only be appeased by abolishing the system altogether. Some :short time ago the Manager agreed to pay threepence per ton extra for men works: r in other men's bords at night, but we have ;beep assured by ...

Our Inducements for Farmers. 'CoULD our dairymen and farmers of the Southern counties realise the prices current in Wallsend for their produce, theirexulta tion would know no bounds. Wingecarribee free-selectors would rejoiee that the days had an end when after more than ordinary toil in subduing the wilds of that wonder fully prolific tract, their advices would show a return varying from 3d. to id. per pound for butter, and £3 per ton for potatoes, out of which commission and carriagffe had tb be deduted: Considering that a fertile country lies so near to the mining towns, we think they ore very indifferently supr plied. While the towns increase, we should ike to see the adjacent-'ountry settled upon by those who would soon become producers.

THE CRISIS IN THE COAL AND IRON TRADES. Mr. Halliday's Visit. Probable Action of the Union. [Newspaper Article] — Miners' Advocate and Northumberland Recorder — 8 July 1874
THE OCRISIS IN .THE COAL 'AND IRON TRADES. Mr. Halliday's Visit: Probable Action of the Union. (From tyhe Cardi/J' Timer s.) Min. HALLIDAv's brief :visit to'-this district has thrown butlittle light upon the important question at'issue between capitaltand labour, as to what isto be the rate of wages after the expiration of the present notices; except per haps to confirm the idea which I halve over and over again expressed, that as far as the colliers are concerned they would not be likely to accdpt a reduction of above 10 per cent.; and that it is the pplicy of the Union to in duce them to accept this amount of reduction appears evident from the utterances of Mr Halliday. That gentleman and his colleagues know full well that the Union has already its hands full, and they may reasonably expect that any attempt to resist the united masters of South Wales and Monmouthshire would end in defeat. . Such is the opinion I have heard expressed before, and what has since transpired seems ampl...

BALLARAT. [Newspaper Article] — Miners' Advocate and Northumberland Recorder — 8 July 1874
BALLARAT. (From our own Correspondent.) LATELY we have had a great stir in the city and town about the trjfling sum of £400 being expended by our XAunicipal magnates upon a little eating and drinking bout.-just a luncheon at midday, and then a magnificent banquet at night,-and this little amusement only cost the ratepayers the above in significant small item. The expense was incurred upon the occasionh'of turning the 3rst sod. of the new Upiper Gong Gong Reservoir, which is to cost the inhabitants of these towns ;£51,000, and perhaps a deal more. Be that as it may, that is the small amount borrowed from the Government for the purpose of constructing the dam. Well, we have had much growling about the shame ful and wasteful expenditure of money upon this tremendous feed, not only'from the rich property holders, but the poor ones also, having strongly afid unmistakably protested against the illegal spending of so large a sum of the ratepayers money in such a way, when it is well known ...

IVARATAH. I Anr sorry to have to report that a dispute has arisen between aportion of the men and the Manager of the Port Waratah Smelting Works, It appears that it has long been an agreement between the Manager and a portion of the men employed (between ~0 and 40) as ore burners that they were so be paid a bonus of 2s. 6d. per man per week, on condition that they drew the full amount of charges, viz., twenty-five charges per week. The bonus was to be paid at the end of each three months. The men complain that when the amount was due three months ago the M~anger refqsed to pay it, but said he ?ould do so at the izi montls en4. However; w~een that period had elapsed, he again refused to py.

MAITLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Miners' Advocate and Northumberland Recorder — 8 July 1874
. MAITLAND. IT was feared that we w;ulrd be flooded-out again last week, as the rain continued to fall so heavy. On Saturday it was thought by some that we would certainly have to " cldar out;" but, happily, we had not to, although it has done great damage, to the crops about the district.' The water broke over Wallis' Creek on Friday morning, and destroyed what little was sown at Loutl Park. The river has been falling lowly to-day, and tlhe weatlher seems p.romising. The labourers in the employ of the ?ltuni cipal Council have petitioned for a rise of wages-six shillings per day. . At a meeting of the Council, on FrLdaylast, it was decided that only the best men:"would receive the increase .One of the alderman objected to giving six shillings per day during the winter. I certainly think every labourer is' worthy of his hire; and I would advise the working class to be careful in who they select at the next' municipal election, for 'f they allow a few like this worthygentleman to tak...
