THE NORTHERN Mining Register, PUBLISHED WEEKLY. SATURDAY, MAY 30, 1891. Argentine Emigration. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 30 May 1891
THE KORTliEEN m tttmg C? PUBLISHED WEEKLY". SATURDAY, MAY 30, 1891. Argentine Immigration. THE scheme of the labor leaders for the wholesale emigration of the workers of Queensland to the Argen tine Republic in South America, and the establishment of a colony in that country, was briefly sketched by Mr. W. liAjvfE, editor of the Worker, a small paper devoted, as its name denotes, to the cause of the workersj before a meeting of unionists at the Barcaldiue camp on Sunday last. If Mr. IiA.NB were the paid emissary of the pastoralists he could not have more effectually ridiculed the scheme, and how, after his explanation of its workings, any man can still believe it will succeed, it is very difficult to understand. The subjoined is the scheme as outlined by Mr. LAKE : " The originators of the scheme pro posed that a number of persons willing to found a settlement should, each be possessed of £50 at least, and any surplus beyond that amount to be placed in the commoa fund, this fund to ...

THE RIFLE. (BY BULLSEYE.) [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 30 May 1891
THE RIFLE. (BY BUIXSEYE.) The usual weekly practice took place at the range on Saturday last, when 12 members of-the Eifle Club tried their ability. Collins' 89, and W. Eichards' 33 at 500 yards were the events of the day. I think it is about time there was a prize of some kind to be shot for. Tlie half year has nearly gone by, and there has been no competition, though the Charters Towers Eifle Club is one of the strongest clubs in Queensland, having last year upwards of a hundred members. Surely a club like this could raise two or three small prizes to be shot for before the expira tion of the luiM year, and. I am sure the business people of Charters Towers would give their assistance were they asked. Mr. Allen, the secretary of the club, has kindly promised a rifle, which is a good start. If there were more prizes to shoot for there would be more shooting and better average. The following are the scores of Saturday last: 200 500 600 total 31 32 26 89 E. Collins H. Elliott T. Milii...

Mrs. Craywortli and the captain were the first to arrive, the former looking, as she hoped, fascin ating, in an elaborate toilet; the latter seeming somewhat uneasy and morose.

Engineers & Engine Drivers' Association. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 30 May 1891
ISttgfiieers & Enpne Drivers' Association. , AT the half-yearly meeting of the Engineers and ISrigine-Drivers' As sociation, field on Saturday night, it was mentioned in the report submitted that *' it had been reported that some of the mine-ownprs had bfeen employ ing men as enginedrivprs who had not ' certificates of competency." It is, we think, scarcely necessary to point out that the employment of uncertificated engine-drivers at any niiiie is a breach of the Mines Regulation^, and we hardly think that any Charters Towers mine-owner woald be guilty of the folly of employing any but a com petent engine driver. The delicate parts of winding machinery require constant and careful attention from the person using it, and if incom petent, which does not necessarily mean uncertificated, drivers are em ployed, they are incapable of giving that attention and care to the engine which is necessary, and consequently the machinery becomes almost useless or unsafe in a few years, and...

Wlnton Wires. I WiaraoN, May 26. i ' Sliere is a large number of men in fclie union camp, but they are "very orderly, and determined to hold out. A number of squatters are in town, and a pastoralist meeting was lield yesterday, and was adjourned until to-day. It is probable tliat free laborers will be brought upland if so, tilings will be lively. The Queen's Birthday was celebrated by a picmcgiven by Mrs Lyuett. The officers were present. Two buggies were smashed up by bosses bolting, but no one was injured, locate, Edwards has quite recovered.- Lieut. Wilson is still away on patrol. Only two men are on the sick list.

Affairs «t Cleruioiit, Cjoekmost, May 22. j l>miug the last few days strike matters seem developing in the mider current. On r. the surface the situation apparently remains the same, but certain circumstances not generally shown, indicate tlie change men tioned on Wednesday, namely, tliat the men in the local strike camps are decreasing in numbers, some going west, others north. It transpires now that these men are in the district, and have formed outside camps, the whereabouts of which is unknown. The following are the exact numbers of unionists in this districts :-Sandy Creek camp, 210 : Wolfang, 370; outside camp, 500. During the last week a new camp has been formed at Emerald.

It is supposed that the movement of the free laborers now shearing at Hint-ley and Peak Downs to the west will be closely watched, the rumors, therefore, th ? t the Gove...
