THE STRIKE AVERTED. Gawler, November 4. After a period of considerable suspense, not merely to those directly concerned but to the whole of the people of Gawler, the threatened strike has been averted. The result of the meeting of the Boilermakers' Society in Adelaide on Friday last was anxiously awaited ; but no definite resolution was arrived at by that society, and the matter was held over till the following night, when a joint meeting: of the Amalsramatec Society of Engineers and the Boilermakers' Society was held.

A rep_ly to the letter demanding Carpenter's reinstatement was received from James Martin & Co., the tenor of the letter being to the effect that if Carpenter applied for work when the firm grew busier the ap plication would ? be considered.

A REMARKABLE CAREER ENDED. FORTY YEARS IN PRISON. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 9 November 1895
A REMARKABLE CAREER ENDED. FORTY YEARS IN PRISON. On September 22 the death occurred at bis house in Old Ford-road, Bow, London, of Joseph Wailey at the age of 83 after a short illness from pneumonia. Born at Southamp ton of poor parents in 1813, Wailey had to seek his own way in the world at a very early age, and unfortunately chose the wrong path with such determination that at the age of about 10 he was beyond the control of his parents. At that time his father was in the navy, and it was decided to train the lad for the sunie occupa tion, but he had become possessed of such an extraordinary habit of pocket-picking and thieving that before he was 12 ho could have given a few hints to 'Fagin.' After repeated spells of imprisonment, during which hia mother died of grief and his father was drowned at sea, he joined a notorious gang of smugglers, whose work proved so profitable that Wailey withdrew with his share, which amounted to nearly £500. He was then at Plymouth, and decided to...

John's, Newfoundland, on September 19, in the Kite, has been unable to extend bis ex plorations beyond Independence Bay, Green land, either northward towards the furthest point reached by Lockwood, or southward towards Cape Bismarck. The main cause of his failure was the loss of nearly all the caches of provisions which he made last rear alonffthe intended line of march, all having been buried by the heaviest snowfall on record, which obliterated all the marks. Only one was found, and that after prolonged search. The previous season's work was thus entirely blotted out. Nearly all the biscuit and milk; all the compressed pen. soup, pemmican, and alcohol— a ton aud a half in all— which had been so carefully stored away, had disappeared, and the party were left like shipwrecked mariner* on a desert island. Nothing daunted, the explorer set to work in October to prepare a fresh ...
