FOR THOSE WHO REMAIN. By John Fabbell. No. V.-HOW It IB 'With UM.-(Continu*d.) There ia no need to refer statistically to the monopolisation of land in other colo nies than those referred to. New Zealand is far and away in the best position as re gards the distribution of land ownership, and recently enacted laws tend to improve that position. A few months ago an article appeared in a finanoial journal on the subject of a projected great sale of a huge estate belonging to a Land and In I of Christehurch. In the interests of a number of London and .--other shareholders and in view of increasing taxation of land values, this estate, which had been grow ing in value for three decades and blocking ? the progress of settlement, was to be brought io the hammer. The owners bad oome to the decision that people might at last be permitted to use it— at a big price. I But there was only one offer.

WHERE OUR MONEY IS! Still More Ranks and Boodle. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 15 April 1893

WHERE OUR MOHEY IS J. Atm n«m Baaka and Boodle. A tremendous fall in the shares of the three Queensland banks followed the publi cation of the Woman's article 'More Banks and Boodle.' In two days Q.N. Bank shares, nominally paid up to £6, dropped 7s— from 98s. to 91b. Royal Bank shares tumbled down in these same two days from 78s. to 72s., a fall of 6s. on £5 shares. But the Worker's quotation of the actual figures proving conclusively how the banks have been bolstered up by the most disgraceful misapplication of public funds on the part of the Coalition Government, had such an effect that two days did not end the nutter on 'Change, and despite all efforts to hide the facts before the week was out Q.N. Banks had dropped to 87« , mulling ft total fall-of 10g.T at which they remained an absolute drug in the market. As for Bank of North Queensland shares one small transaction took place at— ^fts — (the— shares— being' nominally paid up to £5), and then the price fell so low that they c...

An Electioneering Dodge: Wholesale Disfranchisement of Miners. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 15 April 1893

An Electioneering Dodge: Wholesale DisCranobisement of Miners. T. Haekn writes : Some-seven or eight months ago Lumley Hill visited Muldiva and made an all round reduction of twenty per cent in the wages of the miners, thereby accomplish ing a double purpose — the enriching of himself and his fellow-shareholders by about £400 a month or nearly £5000 a year, and the disfranchisement of the working men of that locality. On the second point) he succeeded so well that now Muldiya, with no less than two hundred and fifty men, can boast of about a score of votes. It came about in this .way : The old haDds cleared out sooner than go to work at wages only slightly above subsistence level, and their places were filled and could have been filled twice over in less than a month by new men. Now these men are entitled to a vote but to their astonishment they find a new dodge invented making it an utter im possibility for them to set their names on the Roll at the April Revision.

The Queensland general elections take place ia a very few weeks from this date, and then Sir Thomas M'llwraith, thejniphty svndioator, will apply to the electors —those that remain of them— to express their ap proval of his policy. If things go well with him, it will ba the apotheoais of the corpulent financier of Auchenflower, and his head will jostle with the heavens— the only heavens to which M'llwraith and his kind have ever aspired.
