NEW SOUTH WALES. SYDNEY, Saturday. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 6 September 1892

NEW SOUTH WALES. SYDNEY, Saturday. A few miners and experienced smelters' hands went into Broken Hill mine yesterday. It is considered there are about 300 men now in the mines. Great uneasiness exists at Broken Hill because of the persistant rumors that the mine-owners intend to shut the mines down for three months. The meeting on the Broken Hill reserve yesterday was the smallest held since die bag-inning of the strike, and the men appear heartily tired of it. The Defence Committee of Broken Hill miners have started a clothing depot, and a number of girls aro employed making mater ial up into garments. The nomination of Target for the Mel bourne Cup is found to be informal and she is therefore withdrawn. The following scratchings have been posted in connection with the A.J.C. Spring Meet ing : - All engagements, Marie ; Epsom Handicap, Sterncliaaer; Metropolitan Stakes, Stcrnchascr, Culloden, Tirailleur. Monday.

The Strike Riots in America. AN English paper gives the following parti culars respecting the Pittsburgh strike, already referred to in our telegraphic columns: -Serious and fatal disturbances have occur red at Messrs. Carnegie's Mills at Homestead, near Pittsburgh, attended by deplorablo loss of life. It appears that in consequence of the number of pickets the directors of the firm resolved to keep the mills going with non union labor, and in order to afford the men adequate protection the services of a large number of detectives were engaged. Accord ingly on a Wednesday morning two large barges, towed by a steamer, and containing 300 detectives, left Pittsburgh for Homestead. The town was iu a state of wild alarm. Thou sands of men, women, and cliildrcu lined the river bank, and many of the men earned clubs and revolvers. The mob did all they could to prevent the officers landing. After a pause a shot was fired-from one of the barges, it is said-and then began a furious exchange o...

STORIES TOLD ij^f * i!Wts f *W IJJ.lclll One of the steamers that ran across the Channel had just landed at Calais. Among the passengers going ashore there was seen a portly, respectable-looking gentleman, evi dently an Englishman, to jndge from the unmistakable something which makes the Englishman recognisable all the world over. He went with his scanty luggage (travol lingEnglishmen always carry scanty luggage) up to one of the hotels in Calais, and his first care, as soon as he arrived there, was to get a comfortable seat at the tabic d'hote, and his second to begin his dinner. He had scarcely done so when a dapper, clever, vivacious little gentleman, who evidently was as much French as he was English, took a seat nest to him and began his dinner. The new-comer was a not unworthy type of the modern Frenchman. He had a spare but wiry frame, his forehead was smooth, white, and clear, his eyes brown, lively and piercing, bis nose straight and well formed, and his mouth unimpeachable...
