RAND LABOR TROUBLE. END OF THE STRIKE NOW IN SIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 20 January 1914

RAND LABOR TROUBLE. w END OF THE STRIKE NOW IN SIGHT. [ Throughout South Africa there arc numerous indications that the move ment for a general strike has collapsed as the result of the action of the Union Government in promptly arresting the strike leaders. Large numbers of strikers are re turning to work in all parts of the country, especially at Braamfontein and Gloemfontein. At Durban, while the main body of strikers is for the present standing firm, there is little doubt that the idea of a general strike has been abandoned. The collicry strike in Northern Natal is apparently ending, and the owners report that 50 per cent, of the miners arc now working. The Natal Federation of Trades an nounces that the ballot among its members resulted in a majority in favor of a general strike, but the federation decided to defer action for the present, Official telegrams from the principal railway centres announce that men are reporting for duty in large numbers, and that all is quiet.
