THE TREATMENT OF UNIONISTS. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 30 May 1891

THE TREATMENT OF UNIONISTS. Two or three weeks ago Mayor J. A. Clarke, of Brisbane, made himself extraordinarily offi- cious in brow-beating Secretary Mabbott for   publicly stating that the conspiracy prisoners were ironed. As Mabbott simply made a very pardonable mistake he promptly withdrew his statements re the "conspiracy " prisoners and set to work to get the saddle on the right horse. The following affidavits and statements have since been published broadcast and if there is any mistake about them the Government ought to show it. If not, what is officious Mayor Clarke going to do about it ?—   EYE-WITNESSES AFFIDAVITS.   I George Best, at present of Charleville, in the colony of Queensland, shearer, do most solemnly and sincerely declare as follows : — 1.
