BRISBANE GAS WORKERS' TROUBLE. MEN WILL NOT BE VICTIMISED. The merits of the gas workers' trouble at Brisbane have been decided in the men's favor1?! It was due to the dismissal of a unionist named Wilson on the allegation that he was not in good health, and was too weak to do the arduous work de manded by his job. A doctor nominated by the gas company certified to this ef fect, whilst another doctor consulted by Wilson certified that he was sound and fit. Dr. Dods, Government medical officer, confirmed the latter ^ judgment. Wilson is, therefore, to be reinstated; but some^ of the men who struck on his behalf are not to be reinstated until scabs who, took their places drop out. ' On Monday the trouble, took a further him n. dpmitntion from the Trades and Labor Council waiting on Mr.. Barnes, Minister for Public Works, to ask that the Gas Company be compelled to re instate the men- 'who had gone out' in sympathy with Wilson. The . Minister re plied that he had no power under the law...

Along the sea frontage .many . buildings were damaged, broken windows and scattered tiles being the rule rather than the exception. Along the Coast ship ping had to seek refuge In the various harbors, the seas being exceptionally he;avy and the wind at times of hurricane violence.' Inland the mountain districts perienced snow stofms -of record severity, telegraph \ iyies being wrought down in all directions' -and ' the '' railway service, much interrupted. On the western line a snow plough was in constant use, but notwithstanding all efforts to keep a clear line an engine and goods train were de railed at Clarence and remained embedded heavy floods.

After this the company tried to solve the problem, but it was a ludicrous failures Waltzing with clasped hands did not appeal to them, and many put on their hats and left.
