Interesting Claim for Com- pensation. An interesting case—said to be the first of its kind under section 24 of Act 51 Vic., No. 37 —has been dealt with by the Moree police bench. Mr. A. G. F. Munro, of Wobollabolla hold- ing, proceeded against the Minister for Works, as constructing authority &nbsp; of the railway line from Narrabri to Moree, for compensation on account of land resumed for railway purposes, the amount claimed being £26 17s 7d. Mr. Stirton appeared for the claimant and Mr. J. S Cargill, of the Crown Solicitor's Office, assisted by Mr. Tunks,Government Valuator, watched the case on behalf of the Minister. For the defence it was pleaded that the adjoining land had bean enhanced in value to a degree exceeding the amount claimed. The claimant con- tended that the land in question had been depreciated in value to the ex- tent of from 5s to 7s per acre, owing to severance, disturbance of stock and other inconveniences.

The Far East. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 22 January 1898
The Far East. The Russian and French Ministers at Pekin object to the British proposals for the opening up of ports in China to trade and commerce, as a condition for Great Britain assisting in the liquidation of the war indemnity due to Japan by providing a loan of £12,000,000. China hesitates to accept the British proposals, chiefly through the fear of incurring the hostility of Russia. The "Times " says that it acknow- ledged on all sides that the basis of the negotiations carried out by Major General Sir Claude MacDonald, the British Minister at Pekin, is states- manlike, and in harmony with the best traditions of British policy. Sir Michael Hicks-Beach, Chancellor of the Exchequer, states that Great Britain regarded China as the most hopeful place for future commerces and her Majesty's Government was absolutely determined that whatever the cost, if necessary at the cost of war, that door should not be closed.

Kerosene Oil and Shale Company. Works to be Closed. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 26 January 1898
Kerosene Oil and Shale Company. Works to be Closed. The directors of the Australian Ke.ro-; sene Oil and Shale Company have de-; cidecl to close their works. They, have intimated to the butchers in the Parra matta district that in consequence of the removal of the candle duties and the very large influx of foreign made candles they will be unable to take any more tallow from them. The closing down of the works, which are situated near Parramatta, will threw from thitty to fifty hands out of employment. The secretary stated it was intended to close down as soon as the stocks had been made up, and the works would prob-: ably remain closed till there was a change in the fiscal policy. He ad-, nutted, however, that the present price of tallow had something to do with the trouble. Tallow had been going up for some time, and was now £2 a ton dearer than it usually was. If tallow was at its usual price he had no doubt the works could oe carried on.

Stock Inspectors and the Superannuation Fund. Tiie Government are not dealing fairly with the Stock Inspeators. -Nearly twelve months, ago the Attorney-General decided in the mat ter,of the dispute between the Public Service Board and the Stock Boards, and gave his opinion that Stock In spectors were not " public officers " within tbe meaning of the Public Service Act. Mr. Want also decided that these officers should not have contributed to the Superannuation ;Eund, and that what contributions they had paid iu should be returned to them at once, as it was illegally deducted. 1 Nothing moro was hoard of the matter until Mr. Bruce, the Chief Inspector, issued a circular on 28th June last to the inspectors, stating that no moro contributions to the Superannuation Fund could be accepted from them, and that what they had paid in would bo refunded at once.

Explosions in Mines. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 26 January 1898
Explosions in Mines. The pneutnalophorcs, which . Mr Sydney Smith directed should be ob tained through the Agent General, have been received at the Department or Mines. With them was forwarded a supply of condensed .oxygen for future use, a-sling bag accumulator with incandescent lamp attached, as well as a pneumatic eye protector. The object of the apparatus is to allow miners to penetrate the vitiated atmos phere of a mine after explosions, &c. After an explosion of firedamp or coal dust, and during underground: fires, the air m the mine is usually, more or less impregnated with .carbonic acid (carbon dioxide) and carbonic oxide, (carbon monoxide), and statistics prove that most of those who lose their lives in mines are- suffocated. If it were possible to remove the , workmen ■out of the poisonous after-damp 01 car bon monoxide into tlie fresh"air, there would be a possibility of saving many lives otherwise saciificed.

News by the Mail. An' important judgment was given by the House of Lords on December 15 ill a case affecting trade unionism which has been m existence since 1895. Two shipwrights who had previously done ironwork were employed by an iron company to do woodwork. When this came to the knowledge of Allen, a district delegate of the Boilermaker's Union, he insisted that the men should be disriiissed, or the union would call, out the whole of the men employed by, the company. The company, to avoid; trouble, discharged the men, who .promptly took action against-Allen for " maliciously " securing their dismissal. The trial-of the case before a juryi resulted in favor of the men, and in an: appeal-the, verdict was upheld, , J3ut, • taken to the House of Lords,;it has! been decided by six Judges;- to -threes that 110 malicious motive was: proved,! and that the verdict must bo. reversed.; The Times thinks the decision :is ?fortu-' jnate.; if it had been otherwise tman'y: .'things which arc don...

The Public Service Board. Some time since a Select. Gorrlmit tee was appointed for the purpose of inquiring . into and " -reporting' upon the question of the retiring allowances and'gratuities granted or refused by Public Service Board to persons re trenched or retired from the' Public Service—and1 when the Assembly-pro rogued recently; this body had only partiallyeffected the purpose for which it was brought into . life, ^jyithout waiting for the task to be. completed, some sections of the press have ven tured to adversely criticise the ■ Public Service Board,—and to ladle out to its memhers abuse of the' most brutal character, publishing:at the same time such portions of the evidence as seemed unfavourable to 1 the' Board, and carefully withholding 'al^ replies-of an official character.

Narrow Escape From a Rail way Accident, A narrow escape from a terrible railway accident was experienced ; by the passengers of the 7.50 a.m. from Parramatta .to Sj'dnoy on Friday morn ing at Parramatta. The incident w.is also a very peculiar one. A little black dog was frolicking, on the (line near the bridge, just out from. the station. The 7.50 a m. train had just been signalled to start out, and,,the 1 points which would let the train out from the siding to tho propor track, were set.. The dog, however, got caught in them, and cried out pite ously. This attracted the attention of a porter who had been shunting an. engine on tlio siding, and he thought the driver of "tho shunting eagine had run over the dog. Accordingly he ran to the scone and found that the little animal was locked fast between the points, crushed to death, and ho conld not, remove it. He waved to tho out going train, but it come on till the; shunting engine noar by let out a shrill whistle of alarm, and the Syd...
