Miners' Wages TO THE EDITOR. "Est modus in rebus.', [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 6 March 1874

Miners' Wages' TO THE EDITOR. " Est modus vi rebus.', * Sir-I have read several letters in your valuable paper with reference'to the treatment the miners receive from the Managers of the various Companies here. I will now state an incident which happened to my- self a short time ago. I had the dysentery for awhile, and .for three days I was unable to work. (I had this complaint before whilst I was working for another Company, and when the Doctor was here, and he prescribed me rum, which cured -.my complaint.) I asked the manager for some rum, which he gave, and which again cured my complaint. 'When my month was up and I went . to receive my pay, 1 found my cheque was 35s. short of the usual amount, I was charged 8s. ^.d. per <lay for three day's loss of time and 10s. for rum supplied, which is great encouragement for miners to come -out here from Victoria to work for. «Companies. I am, Sir, &c, j A VICTORIAN MINER.

Witnesses' Expense. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 6 March 1874

Witnesses' Expense. TO THE rJHTOR. Sir-Knowing that your newspaper columns are always open for the ventilation of public grievances, I venture to ask for a little space lo state a case of peculiar hardship of which I am the victim. On January 28th, being then at Douglas Reef, Howley Diggings, I was sub- poenaed as a crown witness in the case Regina v. Erskine, and had at considerable discomfort to travel over 100 miles to reach Palmerston to time. The case was remanded from week to week till Monday, 22nd February, when the prosecution failed. On presenting my bill of expenses I was told by the Clerk of the Magisterial Bench that I could only demand at the rate of 7s. per diem. I put "in my claim accord- ingly (although my actual expenses were double that amount), and was ' referred to the Special Magistrate, who told me that I must go to Adelaide and obtain my demand from the Sheriff. The Special Magistrate refused to give me an order tor the amount, even while admitting that it was...

Endeavour River. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 6 March 1874

Endeavour River. We learn from Sydney papers of the 14th February, and also from private letters received here, that the reports from the Endeavour Uiver Goldfields still. continue very favor- able; but there is a great want of supplies at the diggings. The stores, in fact, were nearly bare, early in February. Subjoined is a late ex- tract from a local paper : "A despatch from Mr. Commissioner St. George, dated Palmerston, Queens- land, loth December, and forwarded from the Junction Creek telegraph station on Friday, 27th December, states:-'All well here. Gold is being obtained in considerable quan- tities. A nugget has been found weighing 108 oz., and several from 3 oz. to 25 oz. The population amounts to about 500. No provisions have yet arrived from Townsville or George Town. The teams are still detained on the roads. The track from the Endeavour River is being extensively used. The blacks are still dangerous. They have speared several horses. The general health of the people her...

Bonuses[?] TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 6 March 1874

Bonuses; TO Tilt EUITOK. It is really quite surprising in this enlightened age to seo the South Australian Government doing their utmost to crush all private enterprise, as is evidenced by their conduct to private diggers in this country, the only ones who receive any support at their hands-and for whom the laws are altered from time to time-are the public Companies, who, as every- body knows, have an M.P., more or less, tacked on to each of them. As for private diggers they are quite ignored. Another instance in this respect is their behaviour to Mr. Milner and party-a party of eight men all told -the first to cross a trackless coun- try with stock ; and who succeeded in bringing- over 2,.">00 sheep (4,000 having died by poison 'on the road), 150 horses, two bullock teams and drays, a horse wag'gon-, and two spring carts; and moreover thev arrived at the Roper just in the nick of time to avert a famine among the Government Telegraph parties en-, camped in that neighborhood : and...

Lewis. - Claim for £38 ös. balance of wages alleged to be due from the Telegraph Mining Company. Mr. Smith for the defendant. From the evidence of the plaintiff ? it appeared that he was discharged by Mr. Phillips at Pine Creek for neglect .of duty, on the 21st January, because he had koocked off work, on account of being dissatisfied with the non ba}Tnent of £19 10s. to his banking account in Palmerston, where Mr. Lewis was gone to, leaving word with plaintiff that he would pay the money on his arrival. Plaintiff telegraphed -to him on the subject, and Mr. Lewis replied that the Iiauk had refused to take the Companies orders; but he would see that plaintiff's money was all right. As Mr. Phillips could not give any explanation about this plaintiff was dissatisfied, and left off work until he could get some satis- faction, especially as it was understood that Mr. ...

OUR ADELAIDE LETTER. (From our own Conespondent). Adelaide, February 6th. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 6 March 1874

OUR ADELAIDE LETTER. (From our own Conespondent). Adelaide, February 6th. More than a couple of "months have elapsed since I last wrote my Adelaide letter. During that time many important occurrences have happened, so that lookiug back upon the last 60 or 70 days, and the daily record of current events one feels considerably bewildered as to where to begin. The interval, too, has been an eventful one, so far as me position and prospects of the Nor- thern Territory are concerned. I was able in November to write hope- fully about the prospects of your settlement. Now Northern Territory affairs are decidedly "under a cloud," and a depressing sort t>f feeling haunts one with regard to the settle men 1, and its future. A few months since our anticipations were gilded with bright hope-now something like despondency has settled down upon many persons who have paid dearly for the experience they have obtained of gold mining in your remote portion of the colony. The first note which struc...

The Land Question. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 6 March 1874

The Land Question. TO TUE EDITOR. Sir-You allowed me space re- cently to ventilate the question of a landing place and jetty at Palmer- ston. It is some satistadtion to find that the authorities here, after many months' delay, are trying to do something. From the present ap- pearances of their efforts in that direction, one is forcibly reminded of the fable of the " Mountain in Labor." Late though the move- ment may be, let us hope that rumour is at fault in fixing the site of the jetty to be constructed, other- wise we shall have another specimen of administrative tolly-for, the jetty if constructed where rumour fixes. it, will inevitably go the way of the buoys and ot the beacons recently placed in the river to Southport, Ï ?cannot write "fixed" in the river, as they are migratory buoys and beacons, and seriously calculated to mislead shipmasters (who are strangers) taking their vessels up to Southport.

Nouthern Territory Times. PALMERSTON: FRIDAY, MAR. 6, 1874. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 6 March 1874

Jtoi[íto¡i[u Sfaiitorç ffîmm. PALMERSTON: FRIDAY, MAR. 6, 1874. NOTHING can be worse for mining men, both employers and laborers, than to have their disputes concerning wages and agreements brought down to Palmerston, instead of being dis- posed of by a Warden's Court sitting on the goldfields. A great many Cases of this kind have occurred lately, and it is just possible that a great many more will occur, when it is found that the Court in Palmerston will readily pay plaintiffs' expenses for the long journeys which they are compelled to make, and for the loss of time arising from adjournments whilst they are in town i It is true that the men ina con- siderable number of the recent cases had a good excuse for coming to Palmerston, because they could not ascertain as long as they remained in the country how far the money which was due to them had been paid into their accounts. The Company had left them in ignorance on this point, and it was scarcely to be supposed that men would conti...
